Kathie Lee's Favorite Things


On Friday mornings, during the fourth (yes, fourth!!) hour of the TODAY show, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb start the hour with a little show and tell. They each bring out a few of their favorite things ranging from snackfoods to alcoholic beverages (lots) to beauty products. Love that they share some of their favorite beauty goodies - kinda like looking inside their makeup bag, and don't you love to get a peek inside someone's makeup bag, hoping to discover a secret potion or find out what that perfect lip color is? Anyhoo...this morning KLG shared a product that I own and think is great, particularly for summer. Nothing fancy or expensive - CLEAN & CLEAR Oil-Absorbing Sheets. These are blotting papers that feel like little rubbery sheets, not the powder covered paper ones most people are used to. They really suck the oil right off your face (as Hoda saw, and didn't particularly enjoy witnessing, when KLG blotted and the sheet came back oil-slicked). They come in 50 sheets to a pack and the pack is very small and slender - perfect to fit in your purse and keep on hand to get rid of any shine. And at around $5.49, it's a bargain!

Thanks, Kathie Lee!

Keeping Secrets

Overheard in the haircare aisle at Target, where I was getting my awesome Elnett:

Couple, early 30's

GUY: Who are you getting that haircolor for? You?

GIRL: (quietly, sheepishy): Uh-huh.

GUY: But isn't that your natural haircolor?

GIRL: Well...it's almost my natural haircolor!


Shhhhhh-- what beauty secrets, routines or procedures do you keep a secret from your significant other? Don't worry - I won't tell. It'll be our little secret!!
