I learned a few mascara tips from this website. It gives pictorial tutorials and sources for more information like how to make mascara cocktails. Check out tip no. 4 for bigger bottom lashes (see the caption for link).

Q: I’m out of ideas. What do I write on the back of a postcard? What things do I tell my pen pal?

A: I found some interesting links. Check them out!

I hope this helps eliminate any postcard/penpal writer’s block!


I love this site! It has postcards, mugs, key chains, and a host of other products for anyone wanting gift ideas. This post deals with gifts for book lovers and writers.

I love this video! First time events can be fearful or fun. My first time on a plane was horrifying. I hope I have the “roller coaster” lady’s outlook when I’m her age!

Excellent questions to provoke deep thinking (I laughed when I read #20; I do it all the time). Here’s some of them:

  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
  3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
  4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
  5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
  6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
  7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
  8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
  9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
  10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
  11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do?
  12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
  13. Would you break the law to save a loved one?
  14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
  15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
  16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
  17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back?
  18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
  19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
  20. Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
