Perfume, makerting lies, food shopping, thanks,

For those wanting to know about the Cake Batter Perfume
The perfume is by Demeter which put out a whole bunch of scents including dirt, sushi and jelly beans. I haven’t tried them yet. I bought my Cake batter perfume online but not from Demeter’s site. I am afraid I’d go perfume crazy if I did.
Some articles I’ve read state that Demeter is a favorite of celebrities. It is more expensive than the imitation perfumes you can get at the grocery store but for a designer perfume it doesn’t cost a fortune.
I will buy cheap make up because most make up is made by the same companies. I don’t feel I have to where it all the time. I don’t like foundation. I think foundation is cumbersome and unnatural and most clog pores. I think good perfume is worth it.

Marketing Lies
What I don't like is buying what I will not enjoy. What will bring me to debt. I do like shopping.
Men and woman shop differently but were both made to feel guilty or
that we deserve something to get us to waste money.
It's okay to buy stuff and it's okay to be rich. But do we have to buy the things they tell us that we want.
How many men each year are quilted into spending way too much on an engagement ring?
How many woman are made to feel they need a overpriced purse instead of the computer they can really use.
We not only programmed with ads to spend money but on what will make us feel good.
That’s not to say don’t like feminine things but there are a lot of poor quality ugly shoes hats and purses around that are only bought because they are expensive.
I saw these very ugly hats for $400.
We are told that thrift store stuff isn't good enough. We are told that if you are overweight you are not attractive. That I found out is another marketing lies. You can be beautiful at any size.

Food Shopping: I didn’t get as much veggies as I wanted. They looked extra sad this week. What do you do for veggies.My shea butter arrived. They sometimes sell coco butter in town but have to order shea butter and my favorite brand is an exclusive of one particular online store. Though there are a few smaller places that claim to carry it.

Thankful list

My shea butter came
I good sleep in when I have been exhausted for over a week

Thanks for the info on where to get the cake batter perfume. :) Before I started my website in 2001, I had a small business online making bath and body products. I actually had the dirt fragrance and it really did smell like dirt too. LOL! Kids loved it. I'm not sure why adults would want to smell like dirt though if the perfume fragrance really does smell like dirt. :)

I totally agree about the whole shopping thing. Personally I buy most of my stuff at Walmart. I honestly don't like to shop anyway, but when I do it's usually on gadgets and fun stuff. LOL! I don't see why people spend so much on incredibly ugly stuff. My $20 purse works just fine. :)

As far as veggies, I'm not a huge veggie fan. I buy them frozen and in cans and then try to disguise them in the foods I'm eating. I did eat some peas tonight in the pasta dish I made. Let me tell you, I HATE peas, but they weren't too bad as long as I didn't get too many in one bite. LOL!

PS, I really like that Gandi quote you posted. Very good!

Do you ever shop on Ebay? I found a 4 oz. bottle of the cake batter cologne for not much more than a 1 oz. bottle. The same person is selling the 1 oz. bottles for $15 including shipping. Here's the link to the 4 oz. bottle if you're interested. I might buy a bottle and try it out.
