1. Favorite face moisturizer? (My clinique is running out and wondered if there is something better or same quality without breaking my face out)

2. Outside--which do you prefer or have....table with umbrella or table under a tent/gabezo?

3. When getting a mani/pedi, do you always get both at the same time?

What a nice way to bring neighbors together.  Open fires to burn brush are outlawed here because I guess we can't be trusted with matches.

I type SO much for work, for my freelancing that nails frankly get in the way.. I rarely play the type of roles that call for fancy nails.. I usually play the character parts in comedies, dramas and musicals... back in the day when I was playing Adelaide in Guys and Dolls and Kate in Kiss me Kate I may have painted them but that ship has sailed LOL.  now I'm doing roles like the Helen Mirren role i Calendar Girls (which I adore) and broader or more substantial part. </p>

Wow, you were Elizabeth Taylor in Shakespeare.  I love that play.  Yes, I can see how fake nails would get in the way of work.  I want to watch Calendar Girls soon.

Acrylics are terrible for the nail bed underneath. And it's a great way to introduce fungal infections.

1. Don't use on.

2.  My preference would be a porch to block out the most sun. 

3,  Have never had either.

Clinique Dramatically Different is my favorite. I always forget to use it, so it lasts a very long time.  ;)

2. Outside--which do you prefer or have....table with umbrella or table under a tent/gabezo?

Either is fine.

3. When getting a mani/pedi, do you always get both at the same time?

I get them separately.  I got them both done once and decided it was very hard to do.  I'd rather take the time for each one separately.  Plus, that way I get 2 massages instead of 1.  That being said, I haven't been able to have a pedi in almost 2 years.  I miss them.

My 15 YO would rather spend time with her friends than me too. But when we're with family she loves chatting with her aunts (my sisters) and me, Lol..

I agree.

When I first started make up in my late teens/early 20s I got a facial done at the clinque counter of my dept store. I spent lots of money on that stuff but I seriously think its over-rated.

I only buy the moisturizer now. I used to get almost everything but have found cheaper subsitutes that are just as good. Just haven't found a moisturizer as, basically I am afraid to try one that will break me out. I have been using it for 19 years.

Oil of Olay, I have incredibly dry skin and it's by far the best product I've found.  Neither, I was just outside earlier with my dog and in the full sun, It was great!  I don't do pedicures and the last mani I had done was too long ago to remember, Lol.
