More Things I Did Not Know! And Vis Monday Reminder

As I wrote last week, I enjoy picking up little bytes of information, about beauty, style and other engaging life topics. How ever did I learn anything before the Internet?? Oh, I had to read books . . . those were the days.

Some of the nuggets I gleaned this past week, as I once again try to sift out the glaringly trivial:

Make a pumpkin spice latte to rival Starbucks OK, just this picture has my mouth watering. I need one of these asap, and Starbucks is too far away!

With a couple of shortbread cookies, heaven.

You can use use unicorn cream to moisturize your personal areas.  “As a woman ages and her estrogen levels drop . . . the body produces less collagen and elastin, which results in more wrinkles and dry skin.”  Apparently, this new cream addresses dryness in any part of our bodies. I know, everything gets drier, dammit.

This is one of the would-be miracle creams.

Australia just legalized same-sex marriage and these pics are everything.  “9 January was the first day same-sex couples could legally wed in Australia. As the clock struck midnight, couples around the country tied the knot.” Cheers and congrats to you all.

You can totally survive in NYC on a $1.5 million salaryI always suspected I could do it, if needs must  : >  On the other hand the author has to get up at 7 AM, nope.

You probably wouldn’t need to shop at this East Village store.
