New Skincare for the New Year with Lily.B Giveaway!

The coming of a new year is the perfect time to assess what does/doesn't work
in our lives and make positive changes. For 2011 I urge all of you, dear readers,
to start being mindful of everything you're putting on your skin and start removing
the 100's of toxins and chemicals found in your beauty/skin products that are
mostly untested and unregulated.

Start by avoiding: All petroleum-based products (mineral oil, vaseline, petrolatum),
parabens, pthlalates, sulfates, fragrance, glycols and dyes.

With all this in mind, it's my pleasure to present a New Year's New You blog giveaway
with Lily.B, a nature-based skincare line I was introduced to through TwoPointOh!LA.
I've been loving the two products that work for my skin type,
the gentle and sweet smelling Rose Hip Infused Facial Wash

On January 3rd, I'll pick a winner who'll receive:

A full-size Rose Hip Infused Facial Wash
A full-size 24/7 Defense Daily Moisturizer

and deluxe samples of:

Red Tea Hydrating Serum
Multi-Action Rescue Eye Cream
Botanical Rich Protection SPF 30 Ultra Defense
$115 value!

In order to win YOU MUST be a follower of this blog and you have to leave a comment
with your contact info AND why you want to win!

Until next time... Miss Absinthe

Yummy on a Bun x 2

Lucious Lobster Roll
Fresh lobster + toasty bun + butter = sheer shellfish heaven.

The lobster roll from the Lobsta Truck isn't cheap $11,
but a good value as the sweet lobster is generous. I've had it twice already!
My only complaint is waiting time seems longer than necessary.

The Original Greasy Wiener

I'm always on the lookout for a tasty hotdog and The Greasy Wiener is a new favorite.
For under $6 I got the original greasy wiener
(mustard, grilled onions and a pickle spear),
without any extra toppings (as I like my food simpler), and a soda.
It was so tasty (very flavorful/well seasoned dog), it really didn't need anything else.
I raved about this for days (and craving the next)... a hot dog!

Paging Doctor Freud

I took the following pics, in order shown, as found,
on my poochie walk with Charlie, a few days ago in my neighborhood.
It wasn't until I looked at them in my iPhone did I detect a possible connection.
Is the universe or my subconscience telling me something? Or is a pickle just a pickle?

Gutter Still Life with Pickles
No jar, no glass... just flowers, cigarettes and a pretty pickle pattern.

Two Prickley Balls
These were found alone on the sidewalk, carefully placed there by somebody else.

A Public Phallicy
My geeky little mind thinks of ancient Roman graffiti when I see this.
Wondering if this is an insult... or a compliment? HA!

So I leave it to you dear readers... What does it all mean??? ;)

Until next time... Miss Absinthe

Blog Giveaway Contest With TMinx!

I am honored to present, for my first ever blog giveaway,
the LA designed, ultra-groovy t-shirts of TMinx, the treacherous minx!
I had the pleasure of meeting the designer, Yvonne, in October at
The Blogger's Cafe 05 for TwoPointOh!LA, when her vintage-inspired t-shirts caught my eye.

From now thru Friday, December 10th, followers of this blog can visit TMinx's website,
choose which style and size you would like from the Geometrics or Zodiac lines,
and leave a comment with your email. On December 11, I will randomly pick a winner
out of my fedora, with the help of my Charlie dog!

Make sure you also check out TMinx's fun and inspiring blog. She has great taste!

Until next time... Miss Absinthe
