The Friday Forum - July 23

A rose from David Austin, English Rose breeder, specialist grower, and author. His reblooming roses are a welcome addition to my garden in the severe summer heat! Is this a clue to my love for rose fragrances?

I've had a busy week. As I write this, I'm having a TGIF moment. I need the weekend to get organized and plan next week's Best Things in Beauty posts. It's predicted to be brutally hot this weekend, so staying cool inside might be a good plan. I'm sure I'll catch a nap or two; Jungle Boy (Charlie) will love curling up with me.

It's time for The Friday Forum! Most of you know, we share information in The Friday Forum. Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Tell us about it! Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Tell us why! Do you have questions others might be able to answer? We can help! Want to talk about skin care? I'm game! Just use the comments. We have busy weekends and slow ones on the forum. Either way, I always enjoy hearing from you.

As usual, I will share the best beauty bits (noteworthy sales and special offers) with you over the weekend. I'll put them in the comments.

The microphone is yours!

I was on of Babushka's Beauty Secrets book winners and just wanted to share my review. I loved this book because every single mask or treatments recommended is so easy to make and most of the ingredients i already have. While I knew and used some of the items already (cucumber for eyes, vinegar for hair) there were still quite a few other treatments I never tried. I loved that the writer also explained what each ingredient does and how it helps our skin or hair. It was a very enjoyable read and I will surely pick up some fruits and veggies and use them on my face :)

Glad to hear you like it, Anna! I loved the book, and I also need to go buy some fruits and veggies. As the takeout queen, I seldom have them in my house.
