Edible Googley Eyes!

Great tutorial on making edible googley eyes. I mean, isn't that pretty much the best idea you've read about this week, nay this year so far? From The Evil Mad Scientist's Blog, where you can find many other enterprising projects (check out these "Lego Abominations").

Product Report: ZuZu and Burt's Bees

Burt's Bees is no longer making concealer or powder. But they have a new Super Shiny lip gloss that is really nice & light. I found it at Target.

I've also been using ZuZu Luxe as a base and concealer. I'm really impressed by how "clean" (few ingredients) the products are. It's a tiny bit "dry" for me because it's oil free - that's my only complaint (most people will find that benficial I am sure). I bought it at Whole Foods. The eyeshadow is excellent: it's not a loose powder (that often drives me crazy because it gets all over the place) and shimmery rather than glittery. All of it is reasonable priced (for that kind of thing).


A judge decided for The City of Wal-Mart, I mean, Austin...an honest to God little slip up there...in the lawsuit that Responsible Growth For Northcross brought against the city citing that they improperly accepted an illegal site plan for the new development. Construction is sure to begin soon as the Sports Authority, which sits on top of the soon-to-be Wal-Mart was cleared out and closed. We look forward to our neighborhood becoming increasingly shittier. Yay. With a recent upswing in crime including many robberies, an assault or two and petty theft (someone siphoned the gas out of our car last week), I fear our little area of North Austin, though not always the most beautiful or cleanest, may be headed downward rather than upwards...only time will tell, I suppose. But it ain't looking good.

Anyhow, there is an RG4N meeting to discuss the court decision and where to go next on January 11th. Info here.
