Weird things you might need.

.

I don’t need this…

.

.

But I won’t judge you if it’s something you want to try.

.

.

Who am I kidding? That sounds disgusting. And don’t even think about wiping your hands on my guest towels after you apply it.

I will hurt you.

.

.

Good grief. Along with all the other parts of my body that are sagging…. now I have to worry about droopy gums?

.

.

Does lip temperature change?

.

.

Mood lipstick of the 90’s? Hell… I’m old enough to remember mood rings from the 70’s.

.

.

Things I will never need.

.

Would I like a Hermès bag? Sure.

.

.

Would I like a Hermès bag made from fungus? Oddly enough, I would not.

.

.

Say it isn’t so. Good grief… the model doesn’t even look happy.

.

.

On a list of ridiculous things no one needs? This has got to be in the top 5.

.

.

$1,000 a pair!

You might as well wear a sign that says “Yes, I’m a moron. Thanks for noticing”

.

How could I not?

.

I saw this ad a while back and knew I had to try it.

.

.

I mean really, how could I resist?

.

.

Though despite the name, I won’t be rubbing it on my bum.

.

.

I have no earthly idea what cupuacu butter is….

.

.

But the fact that the cream is actually pronounced ‘boom boom’… makes it worth the risk.

.

.

I’m not loving or flaunting what I’ve got. Nope. Not for years, there’s just too much of it now.

.

.

But this stuff is rich, delightfully creamy and smells absolutely fabulous. The scent is almost strong enough to wear as a light perfume. And if the guarana wants to tighten my thighs? Who am I to argue.

.

.

If it could do something about my hot flashing red cheeks? I’d buy it by the barrel.

.

A small collection of nonsense.

.

I saw this at Goodwill last week… and it made me wonder how many women in the 60’s stuck their face in a cone for the sake of beauty.

.

.

The ridiculous cat products are still popping up on my Facebook feed.

.

.

Saw this license plate and thought…. why would anyone want to be BoBo?

.

.

For anyone who doesn’t remember….

.

.

BoBo was a blow up punching bag…. and part of a groundbreaking study about learned aggressive behavior.

.

.

And if ridiculous cat products aren’t ridiculous enough? This abomination popped up on my Facebook feed the other day.

.

.

And I seriously don’t want to know what algorithm triggered that!

.

I’m a sucker for fruit.

.

I love fruit! I love it on my plate, I love it in my drinks and now I’m hoping to love it on my face.

.

.

Enter some highly recommended moisturizer.

.

.

Have you noticed this new trend in packaging? Cute little welcome notes whenever you open a box. Sorry folks, but I’m neither glowing nor part of your gang. (I’m currently picturing juvenile delinquent bananas with their peels undone standing on a street corner, smoking a cigarette and snarling at passers by.)

.

.

Banana soufflé for your face, how bad could it be? They want you to add pineapple serum if you’re looking dull. Heck… if you add a little rum, my skin will perk right up. Guaranteed!

.

.

I admit I was a tad disappointed with the minuscule size of this product. I mean come on, it’s made from bananas. It’s not like they’re rare.

.

.

Vegan and cruelty free is great, but stating you’re free of sulfates and silicons on top of a list of chemicals I can barely pronounce doesn’t exactly scream natural.

.

.

Products no one needs.

.

While I’m all for pampering and spoiling our pets..

.

.

No.

.

.

Just, no.

.

.

Bowzer’s manicure should not look better than mine… and look, even the dog hates it.

.

.

.

I want to know who looked at their cat’s ass one afternoon and thought, ” Hey, that will make a great coloring book”.

.

.

Mr. Whiskers is not amused.

And lastly, proof positive more isn’t always good… it’s just more.

.

.

Hell, I think I’m slipping into diabetic coma just looking at that.

.

Products I think I have to buy.

.

For blog fodder research purposes if nothing else.

.

.

I’m guessing they meant to say bad mood, but either way …. a screaming goat seems like the perfect companion to ride out the rest of this abominable year.

.

.

A book of delightful goat facts? Perfect.

.

.

Screaming goat placement is everything.

And hey, when you already have a flying poop drone…. a screaming goat doesn’t even raise eyebrows.

.


.

The other product I might have to buy?

.

.

A carbonated bubbling face mask?

.

.

Show of hands…. how many people want to see that selfie?

.

I’m in love!

.

With my husband, yes… of course.

But also with these:

.

.

Gorgeous little masterpieces made with leaves,twigs, blooms and berries.

.

.

Called land art…

.

.

Because as soon as the wind blows?

.

.

They’re gone.

Each of Bullen-Ryner’s pieces comprises locally sourced and foraged materials. Nothing is glued or tethered, which means her work might only last a few minutes before parts begin to fly away with the breeze. So, why does she choose to work this way? “People often ask me why don’t I make something more permanent or they say it’s such a shame that it’s temporary,” Buller-Ryner shares. “But for me, it is the ephemeral nature of what I do that has become like therapy for my soul. I get to put down all my anxieties, my fears, all the chaos from my brain and turn it into something beautiful to honor Mother Nature. I take some photos and then walk or cycle away, leaving it all behind and feeling calmer, more connected, and truly lighter.

.

Such beautiful little treasures.

.

.

Yes.

.

.

I’m definitely in love.

.

.

Admit it….

.

.

You are too!

.

Products you’re too embarrassed to admit you want.

.

But I know you do.

.

.

Admit it, we’ve all wanted to feel a little warmer and cheesier this year.

.

.

This gives a whole new meaning to the word shortcake.

.

.

Skin as soft and supple as a nice juicy brain? What woman doesn’t dream of that!

.

.

I have to admit this one might have validity. We live next to a horse farm and see our fair share of flies. A real life arcade game with salt bullets… hmm.
