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.

Clinique Aromatics for years and years for me, but I can't wear it anymore.  Have any of you had menopause affect your sense of smell?  I can't bear heavily scented things anymore, when I used to love heavy duty Orientals, etc. Even lots of fairly mildly scented laundry detergents get me now.

Anyone remember Germaine Monteil Bakkir? It was in a really pretty blue and gold tin spray bottle.

Momine, very beautiful photo!  

Sunflowers, yes!  There are several seasons of Mrs Brown!  I'm so looking forward to watching all of them.  I just googled "Mrs Brown's Boys streaming" and the shows popped up.

Love Monty Python, too!  But haven't heard of Ripping Yarns.  Will do a search for that. Smile

Estee Lauder's White Linen.... *sigh*

Loved it, wore it for years. Now I can't stand ANY perfumes, colognes, lotions, etc. Even scented candles!!! My throat closes up and my eyes water.

Some of the worst offenders? Men, with their stinky colognes and after-shaves... just one hug and my clothes, skin, and hair are contaminated for the rest of the day. I have to change clothes, shower, and wash my hair to get the scent out, then wash the clothes and hope the offending odor washes out.

Talk about Honey Badger pee!!!!! Sick

Lipstick - bet most of you never even saw it, ah, the joys of being older ;-)

Faberge "Stained Glass" - and Cary Grant was in the ads ;-)  He was on the board of the company.

AND, did anyone else ever use the Charles of the Ritz thick, thick moisturizer in the black jar cuz it smelled like bubble gum????

First Lipstick:  MilkMaid "Pixie Pink."   Also smelled delicious - white enamel case with little flowers on it.
