I am a married, Christian, American. I'm married to my best friend. Unfortunately, life has thrown us a few curve balls, and we were both disabled before we were 50. I can't cook and clean except very little due to how bad I have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. However, my husband had a spinal stroke that left him fully quadriplegic about 14 days after our 25th wedding anniversary, and now that he's home his caregiver does light housekeeping. That is such a blessing! I've recently purchased an Instapot and have found myself with hand braces and gloves over them making meals in the Instapot! I always loved to cook and dreamed of starting my own catering business when I retired at 55. Well. . . life happens, and I sold all the catering things I had collected. I don't go out so much, so I'm an avid amazon.com shopper. I have long, naturally curly hair which I do not color. I use styling products mostly from Sally's. My favorite fragrances for myself are Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue and Victoria Secret Dream Angels Heavenly. I sometimes like to layer fragrance lotion and the fragrance. Otherwise, I just like to lotion up with a good soft smelling lotion so that it doesn't interfere with my fragrance. I use a good facial moisturizer, but I do not wear makeup. I just use Dove body wash. I've tried many, many others, but I finally decided to stick with Dove. It gives me moisture and has a clean smell too. I'm a grown "girly, girl" who likes lace, ruffles, pretty paper and pens, and I enjoy singing.
This Purex liquid detergent is a good all around detergent. I supplement all of my liquid detergents with powdered oxi cleaner. Honestly, I had rather find this Purex at a lower cost than some of the leading name brand detergents because I like the smell, I add oxi powders to all of them, and I feel that at least on this I get a good detergent at a fairer price.
A friend gave me a tube of Vaseline Lip Therapy Advance in a little frienship basket. I don't like any lip products with the squeeze tube application method. I tried the product with an open mind, but it just felt like I was putting petroleum jelly on my lips every time I used it. For me, petroleum jelly just isn't something that I want on my lips. It feels greasy as if you've been eating fried chicken, but it just doesn't have the good chicken to go with it.
I like the little round canisters of Carmex Everyday Healing Balm. I normally don't like to apply lip care with my fingers, so q-tips and Carmex make great partners. Carmex is great when it's cold out, and my lips have gotten really chapped and get one of those painful splits in them. If I keep Carmex Balm on my lips constantly, my lip heals faster. I even take a q-tip and rub Carmex Healing Balm inside if I have soreness from blowing my nose too much. It works wonders!
I thought Aquaphor just felt sort of like a trumped up petroleum jelly like substance. I don't really like lip care that doesn't come in a stick for everyday use. Aquaphor may be good while you have a cold or something, but I just didn't like it for me.
I got the Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Clear. It feels great and stays on good. I just had to learn how to wear glossy gloss again without making my mouth shine so much. It's really funny how what I wore in high school is back again. I learned to put on just a little. It feels ok for my age, looks good, stays on a long time, and is very moisturizing.
I'm not an alcoholic drinker, but if I were then I would have to say that Jack Daniel's #7 Black Label is a smooth, rich whiskey. It's not for the faint of heart. Drinks are too expensive, so I guess the last time I had any Jack was a sip or two from a friend's glass of Diet Coke & Jack (heavy on the whiskey) on a work trip where the sponsors had an open bar. I personally use Jack Daniel's #7 Black Label as part of a pork chop marinade when we're going to grill them.
The Purex dirt lift action fresh scent is a good a all around laundry detergent. However, I do have to add Oxi cleaner to all of my laundry to work with the detergent to get the clothes as clean as I like them. I buy all different types of the liquid Purex.
