2. Face Off
New favorite show. I got sucked into a mini marathon on Syfy channel earlier in the week. So cool. It's about professional makeup artists competing against each other in all kinds of ways like body painting, scupting, appliances....I never knew so much of the movies is makeup & not just masks!
3. JW Pet Products
My little poodle isn't so little anymore & he is full of energy & destruction. He has yet to destroy A SINGLE ONE of these toys, which is something to say. The small rubber baseballs are his favorite, they bounce high, the squeaker won't break off and become a choking hazard (if it breaks, it's stuck inside), and there's no fluff for him to shred everywhere. Oh, they also donate to various pet-related organizations!
4. Joico Shampoo & Conditioner
I have unruly hair. By that I mean naturally curly, kinky & dry hair. And tons of it. I have spent hundreds of dollars on deep conditioners, treatments, hair cuts & everything else. I'm trying to grow my hair out longer now, and I had a happy accident with these. I was given a gift set of this shampoo, conditioner and a mini tube of their keratin deep treatment. I ran out of shampoo one night and decided to try this, before going out and buying some new stuff. I fell in love. This is the first time I haven't had to use a ton of serums and products to get my hair to behave when I straighten it. And according to Makeup Ally, I'm not the only one who loves it.
5. Heirloom Tomatoes
I really really love gardening. I am inappropriately in love with tomatoes. And the fact that there's this thing called the Slow Food Movement that puts together an Ark of Taste that lists all "endangered" food types by region has made me really love the kinds we grow at home. Heirloom. They are beautiful, taste better and so much better for our food system to grow. They come in purple, gold, red, pink, white, yellow, orange, black (grown 'em!)....and different variations of these. This website has a list of their "Top 10 Heirloom Tomato Varieties" and provides their own seeds for purchase of hundreds of different varieties. I've linked to the Ark of Taste, so you can see what foods are in trouble in your region, and to the website so if you want more info on heirloom tomatoes you can check them out!
