Materialistic Monday: Drama Mama's Secrets, Part One

How lucky are you all today? The faaabulous Drama Mama is guest blogging here today to share her beauty secrets! Get your tabbing fingers ready - there's some good stuff here...enjoy!

Materialism is hard work, Wonderfriends, so I’m going to work fast and hard to get you in and out of here on this Monday morning.

The erudite and gregarious Jordan has asked me to guest on this auspicious day, mostly because she isn’t half has materialistic as I am, and partially, maybe, because she’s just tired, lazy, or both and just wants to pass the heavy lifting over to me. Never fear, mon amie, I am willing and able to transition you from the dregs of winter to the dawning of summer in just a few pithy paragraphs. Get your pens ready. And…Go!

First of all, as we move from Winter to Summer, you might notice that you are feeling… squishy, perhaps. Not heavy, but, er, well, not as toned and terrific as you’d like to be as those Land’s End Swimsuit catalogs appear fast and furious in your mailboxes. May I suggest a nice meal replacement that I’ve been doing that is filling and delicious ? (Well, let’s not go crazy here, how about pleasantly palatable?). Fiber 35 is available online, in your local health stores, and what I really like about it is that it does indeed fill one up and keeps things moving, shall we say? A few shakes throughout the day, with a Fiber Smart bar mid-day, and a salad with protein for dinner – an easy and painless way to shape up and clean out. Just in time for Land’s End season. Greet those waves with the semi-self-confidence that you deserve!

Now that your innards are singing, may I bring your attention to your skin? Yes, darling, it is lovely and wrinkle-free, but that long winter has left you –ahem- a little dull and not as baby-fine as you’d like. MAC Moisturelush line is just that – softening and hydrating and really, truly non-greasy. Truly. I would not lie to you. I do the Cremewash with my Clarisonic in the shower (oh, the ecstasy), then the Studio Moisture Fix while I dress and do my hair. By the time I get to my make-up, my face is ready to go. Friends, before I turned 40, I detested the feel of moisturizers. As it became a necessity, I searched vainly for an item that would hydrate me and not make me look like a fry cook in June. The real piece de resistance is the Moisturelush Crème at night – it goes on like a cloud, and is like a mini-facial; once you emerge from your morning shower, the effects of your nightly attempts are butter-smooth and have plumped up even the tiniest of lines – even around the mouth! Couple all of this with your Strivectin, and you are positively entering Dorian Gray territory.

Okay. Pens down. That's enough for today. Process. Rinse. Repeat. We'll see you next week at this time for the rest of Materialistic Monday Terrorist Takeover by Drama Mama. Please do your homework.

Very good. I am a sunscreen nut with my facial lotion. I love Estee Lauders Day Wear with SPF15. You are the third person I have heard talking about Clarisonic. I may have to try that.

Okay, you Strivectin people are killing me. Do you have a trust fund? Have you seen the price of that stuff?

I know, I know. Cashmere is expensive, too. But my cahsmere has a lifespan of, I don't know, forever!!--can you say the same about your wrinkle creme?

but, kristen, the tube of strivectin is SO LARGE!!! and i found it at nearly $30 off the regular price.

Dorian Gray. Hilarious.

Jordan said...

I'm not sure about "erudite and gregarious", but I'll take "lazy and tired" for $100.

Thanks, Drama, you've outdone yourself. I can't wait to post the second half next week!

hmm. I've only vaguely heard of strivectin, but I never associated it with wrinkles. That mac stuff sounds really wonderful. I am going to have to check it out.
As far as the fiber stuff goes, how gentle is it on your 'system' if ya know what I mean. Can I be amongst the people whilst enjoying it?

drama mama said...

Bonbon, the Fiber 35 is gentle enough for me to ingest during a work day. A teaching in front of students 6-hour-a-day-work-day. Does that make sense?

I'd say it's a gentle process.

CC said...

Wow! Great ideas. Can I get it all for free too? LOL! Thanks for the laughs and tips! :)

DM, you would DIE if you knew my beauty "routine." You might even disown me as a friend.

Do you promise the night time moisturizer won't make me break out?

Does it count that I got my ears pierced today?

Kathryn said...

DM, you are saving me from frumpy matronliness. Bless you. Might have to get a grant for the strivectin but probably worth it.

Cindy said...

Great guest post! I might give the fiber a try. It's nice to find a meal replacement without soy.

Your beauty tips get me thinking I might have to do a post on my new secret body scrub.
