    I would tell her, and utilize the "compliment sandwich" method. Start by saying something positive about the business/your experience, then say "but I wonder if you know about A,B,&C" and then circle...

    I didn't mean to imply that drinking water acts as a moisturizer, however, being properly hydrated DOES affect your appearance. Just from my own experience, in the winter when I don't drink enough...

    I'm not sure yet, typically it lasts most people 3-4 months and if you do it regularly for a bit, it will last longer and longer as you learn not to use those muscles as much. I paid $13/unit, but...

    Moisturize morning and night. I can't really say if more expensive moisturizers are worth it, I use Kiehl's ultra facial moisturizer, which is pretty cheap considering how long it lasts. Drink lots...

    I make a lot of baked goods from scratch, and normally if you add the dry ingredients at the end, you fold it in. But since you are adding wet and dry alternately, I would use the mixer on a low...

    I'm curious why the flouride is such an important consideration for you? Flouride does not naturally occur in the human body and is more poisonous than lead. There are alternatives to help with...

    LOVE skiing! I am so jealous of everyone with amazing ski areas right in their backyard. It's almost a 2 hour drive to the closest ski area here, and the conditions are not always the best.

    Oh! I know what that is. You are supposed to hang it inside your trash can to keep the raccoons away.

    Oh my goodness, so many horrible gifts! LOL.

    I was lucky this year, my SO listens well and surprised me with things I had been coveting for a long time. But in the past, I've been the victim of...

    I canceled my subscription after about 6 months due to the inability to get certain samples (I don't EVER want nail polish) and the puny size of the samples I did get. If I can't try something for a...

    My BF and I make close to the same amount, however, I have a lot more money available for spending. So when we vacation or plan any pricey activity together, we generally each pick up a portion of...

    I live on a peninsula and when there is a tree down, there's often no way out until it's removed. We also happen to have a LOT of old trees, so power outages are frequent. On a day to day basis, I...

    I have been known to switch shoes halfway through a long hike. I agree, it can be a lifesaver!

    Interesting about the fit of Keens being better for a rectangular foot...mine is definitely wider in...

    Thanks for clarifying! I can imagine that some corporate parties really suck, hopefully ours is not one of them. ;) I know we can't always please everyone, but I do my best by taking the location...

    I am feeling incredibly lucky right now. My guy was married for a long time and was divorced for about a year when we got together. His ex-wife basically sucked at any and all household or career...

    KEEN, KEEN, KEEN.

    Before a recent trip to Zion, I bought a pair which arrived 2 days before I left. I put over 40 miles on them in 3 days, walking on ALL sorts of terrain- uphill, downhill,...

    I'm not going to address the extreme negative perspective that's been shared. That is not my perspective and frankly, it's not hard to understand that someone who feels that way hasn't found someone...

    This is how I feel, exactly. Seeing that bond and being a part of it, but also 'apart' of it has sort of awakened some maternal instincts in me. I've never wanted nor NOT wanted children, I was...
