Yes, No, Maybe So

I used to do a good job at telling myself no. But i find myself fighting to do that lately. Like last week, I was at Ulta... I have a tube of Max Factor Lash Perfection in my purse and in my makeup tray at home. It's my favorite. I like to buy a tube whenever i go to Ulta, because they only sell this stuff at Walmart and Ulta and not the drugstores and i despise Walmart. But the last few times i've been to Ulta, they've been sold out of my favorite mascara. Well I'm a mascara whore. I dont need any more. But I totally hadn't tried Covergirl's Lash Blast yet, and insisted that i needed to. Only, I'd just seen the commericial for this last blast, and im a complete sucker for anything at all that's black and silver, the word no completely jumped ship out of my vocabulary, and i picked up a tube of black and platinum. It was either that or Maybelline's Lash Stiletto. I used this to top off my lash perfection at my wedding, and really liked it...but there...there i said no. Except, after Ulta, i went to Target, and it was cheaper there than at Ulta, and I just had to get it 'cause it was a deal right? That doesn't sound too bad... until you look at my makeup tray, and you also see tubes of mascara from Estee Lauder and Clinique and other Maybelline (the colossal, which by the end of the day, im picking off my eyelashes, but it looks good in the morning?), and that's only three I can think of off the top of my head, even tho i know there's at least 9 tubes there. Mascara shouldn't even be on my mind today, because I'm wearing my glasses. And it's extremely hard to put my mascara on without my contacts in because I'm THAT blind.

Hold up - I still had amazon open from finding that link for the Lash Stiletto... and this little gem was on the side bar...

The Ice Cream Ball

First of all, holy price range: Price:$19.50 - $227.40. In reading the "How It Works" paragraph, you'll find this statement - "The consistency will vary based on the ice, your mix, the outside temperature, shaking frequency, etc." So basically, if you live in Texas, I hope you like milk, or you're making this indoors with the AC cranked up high. Cause making it outside at "camping trips, at picnics, barbecues," is totally out of the question in these 90+ degree temps. Heck, it was hard enough to keep it frozen making it WITH electricity when i was a kid. If you know anything about making ice cream in Texas, just enlighten me please.

PS - I'm impatient, and when I want something, I would rather go pay $50 more in-store to get it right then and there than to buy it online and save $$$. But my lord, do not forward me email #1 two hours after you sent it, because I did not respond yet. Seriously? I have thirty something other people downstairs that im buying stuff for, and your first email has just not made it to the top of my to do list yet.
