    that junk food question was kinda interesting. i don’t have a sugar addiction, but once had a cupcake taste off recently where we all tried the “best” ones from various seattle places (trophy, royale, wink, etc). now, i can’t even look at a cupcake without feeling a little sick.

    You are amazing at finding the answer to the question that was just floating around my mind. Blackheads are the bane of my existance.

    If you are looking for a bright, lovely perfume, try Miller Harris’ Geranium Bourbon. It’s kind of grown up, but bright and gorgeous. I also like their suggestion for Guerlain’s Apres L’Ondee, which smells a bit like the air after a rainstorm.

    I tried the castor oil/olive oil mask over the weekend for blackheads. By golly it does work! Thank you for the link!

    I just heard your interview on craftsanity so decided to check out your blog. It looks like good fun.
    And on the long hair thing. . .I have really long hair that I either keep in a pony tail or bun. While I was growing it out I discovered Uncle Harry’s Hair Conditioner with Hemp Oil; in the Tenzing Momo store in Pike Place Market. It is produced in Redmond and I’ve been using it ever since. Really good stuff.
