Topic: How vain are you?

Forum: Humor and Games — Breast cancer is no laughing matter, but sometimes a good joke or a game is the best medicine.

Okay, a few of us have had so much fun on another thread comparing the ways in which we are still vain, that I thought it deserved its own thread.  Everybody chime in... how vain are you?

Edited to add:

We on the "How Vain Are You?" thread recognize that our sense of fun- and humour is not to everyone's taste.  Hence, we have chosen the "Humour and Games" forum to let our hair down.  Although swapping "vain" stories, style tips and beauty secrets are always eagerly welcomed, going off-topic is not a crime.  Neither is bad language or differing opinions.  We recognize that each- and every one of us is interested in conventional, complementary, holistic and alternative treatments as long as there is science-based  research behind each- and every one.  [Like someone said, if honey badger pee as a treatment for breast cancer had hard science behind it, I would be the first in line.]  We reserve the right to honestly discuss the strengths and weaknesses (and dangers) of everything, and laugh at the ridiculousness of life. 

This thread is for sharing and laughter, but it is also about the freedom to DISCOURSE, DISCUSS, DECONSTRUCT, DEBATE and DEBUNK the various- and sundry myths out there about breast cancer and breast cancer treatment no matter what they are.  But don't forget to recommend your favourite lipstick shade along the way.

Yeah, that is me in what I used to call "chemo chic" :D

Selena, definitely one hot witch and pft about shoes being for walking in. Although I do have quite the collection of walking shoes as well, truth be told.

Yorkie, you definitely do NOT look like a grandma. Good for you!

Wow you guys look great. I am vain but not to the point I don't leave the house w/o makeup and in fact I do it all the time. I like the reaction to the people I see at another time when I have makeup on, hair looking great and dressed really nice. They cant believe the transformation. I do have my hair woven - med brown with blond highlights. I dress to the nines when we are going to dinner, etc., but seriously look like I have been swabbing the decks around the house. I had a friend who said she wore makeup all the time for her husband. Not doing that. Love him but he looks like a homeless person around the house sometimes so....I do like to have my nails done and in fact had the full set yesterday. I know no one will see my feet, hopefully, but just didn't seem like a finished job w/o both. The Vietnamese ladies who own the shop know I am a challenge for a pedicure. I don't wear shoes around the house - socks maybe and I just love to go barefoot. I used to be embarrassed by my not so clean feet which I do scrub all I can at night but not anymore. I tip them well. I think we all deserve to primp and be pampered. What great results we get from all that...diane

Yorkie...  you are HOT!!!

Sunflowers... yeah, sometimes I wonder how I "... sprang ..." from my mother's loins.  She and my elder sister are peas-in-a-pod: minimalist (their houses feature, like, a single chair, lamp, plant and they consider it decorated), practical, earthy, flat-shoes-and-trousers kinda gals).  Me?  Full-blown, unashamed Victorian.  They both call my century-old, antique-stuffed house a "... house of horrors ..." because all they can think of is "... all that crap needs DUSTING..."  [Horrified eyeroll.]  To which I reply, "... yeah?  So? ..."

HOSEIRY.  Lovelovelove hosiery.  Fine denier stockings.  And I'm so excited that Cuban-heeled, French-seamed stockings are coming back in style!  #slobber

Momine, Selena and Yorkiemom,

Wow! So beautiful in addition to being such smart cookies.

Momine- glamour incarnate

Selena- beautiful red hair and porcelain coloring that reminds me of my late mother

Yorkiemom- the biggest surprise since your avatar, as far as I can remember, has always been that cute pup. If people say I look too young to be a grandmother, you have me best by a mile. So nice to "see" you.

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I'm off to make my mom's recipe for butternut squash casserole. Although we lived on separate coasts. We always spoke on a Thanksgiving day and discussed menus, recipes and everything food. She's not only the woman who taught me to cook, but the woman who (tried) to teach me to look good. As I mentioned, I was a slow learner :) BTW, she was buried sporting her first gel polish mani. She had gotten it for my dd's wedding and loved it. Miss you mom.
