how to get completely lost in the internet, and love every minute of it...

People like me are the reason that Pinterest is taking off like wildfire.  It's like totally legal crack for grown-ups who have brains that function like pinball tables.  You sign on, look for a recipe, and 3 hours later you've found a new bikini, and you wonder why your decorating skills suck so much worse than all those people who were the original thinker-uppers of pallet coffee tables and iron pipe book shelves.  It's enough visual stimuli to come dangerously close to making eyeball blood vessels burst.  The makers of that site are pure evil.  And I love me a little bit of evil.  So, since you're sitting here reading my blog on this dreary Wednesday, and aren't getting anything done anyway, here's some stuff to help completely obliterate the rest of your day's productivity also *insert your best interpretation of a comic book villain's laugh here*

Here are some of my recent "pins" on some of my favorite "boards".  Feel free to click on every single one of these links and see if you can make it all the way to the black hole of the Internet...

Homemade Lotion Bars! None of the yucky chemicals, parabens, formaldehyde, petroleum, etc. that you'll find in store-bought lotions!For Dry Skin Soothe: Combine 2 Tbsp honey with 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Apply to your clean face and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse with tepid water followed by a cool rinse. This can be done three times a week. “This mask heals, moisturizes and balances the pH of the skin,” says Macan-Graves. “Honey is a humectant and natural antibiotic that heals and moisturizes. Apple cider vinegar helps balance the pH of skin and soothes damaged skin.”Josie Maran's Daily Sun Protection.  wish this wasn't so expensive.  I want this in the worst way...
