Hi and welcome to the board!

Well, let's see... I'm 50, married 32 years and have three children and two grandchildren. And, I'm a product junkie! One of my favorite things to do is go shopping with my daughter, daughter-in-law and sister; we can literally spend hours checking out the beauty products (and of course, the shoe department) in the stores. And since we each know a bit about what the others like, even when we're shopping separately, we keep each other in the loop when we see a good deal.

Each of us have our own favorites we advise each other on; my daughter is into hair/nail colors, my dil is into skin and bath products, my sister is the lipstick/mascara maven and I'm into eyeshadows and liners. That makes it fun to hit the stores together; it's like going with your own posse of beauty consultants! ;-)

How about you? Do you do your product shopping solo or make it an adventure with some gal pals?

Here's hoping some more

Hello Ysolt!

My name is Iris, I'm in the 30-35 age box, married and a mommy. I love going to celebrity gossip columns not for the articles but for the fashion. I watch way too much 80s flicks and romantic comedies. I like to experiment with make up and play dress up. I love shopping for shoes-it's the only size that I could depend on :P I'm 4'11" so finding jeans that has the right length is pretty tough, alteration sometimes cost more than the clothes itself.
I enjoy a quiet evening at home but love having a girl's night out.

I hope to get to know each and every one of you to share ideas about beauty and fashion.
