Shopping!


After our UFO conference meeting today I headed over to a local shopping area called Uptown.  My plan was just to go to Trader Joes, but then I decided to also do a quick walk through of the open air mall.  I came across a shop called Francesca's Collection.  I had never been there before and what drew me in wasn't the clothing, but the accessories!

I bought way more accessories than I need considering the boxes and boxes I already have.  What could I do?  They were on clearance and really cheap!  Most of the clothes were too youngish for my taste, but I did buy the vest in that photo and a leopard print scarf. :-)

Anyhow, a fun day for me!

Strange Obsessions: Mother Forces 5 yr old to get brows waxed

 This is very sad; an obsessed and clearly disconnected woman forces her five year old daughter to get her brows waxed for an upcoming beauty pageant. This clip is hard to watch; the child is crying and screaming. The mother doesn't care and says "They call them beauty pageants for a reason..." in defense of her actions.

Aspartame now hiding in your organic food

Not that it isn't already hiding under many names in many different foods.  This is the rule I follow, if anything claims to be low in calories and is something sweet or that normally has sugar -- I don't buy it.  However, there are probably lots of products that I don't think of as containing sugar or that isn't claiming to be low in calories that I might buy being unaware that it contains Aspartame.  At this point I will just have to check every label and try to remember all the many deceptive names.
