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?

My kids have each other but they would rather not do things together at our house or someone else's lol. ---------- OK, so I guess you mean that the people you happen to be friends with also have kids your kids' ages that your kids like ot hang out with. We only rarely had that kind of situation

Basically yes.

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.

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.

I agree.

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..

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.

1. Don't use on.

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

3,  Have never had either.

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