The Vampire Diaries. Thursdays. 8pm. Starts 9/10 on CW. Being the Twilight fan that I am, why not divulge into another vampy love story?
Eastwick. Wednesdays. 10pm. Starts 9/23 on ABC. First vampires, now witches? Looking a little like Charmed, only more light-hearted maybe? To be honest, I really just wanna see one of my fave actresses, Lindsay Price. I miss her so terribly much since the oh-so-fabulous Lipstick Jungle was cancelled (yeah. I am still bitter over that one).
What new shows are you going to be checking out? Do share, I may need to tune in!!

Or one of these ...
Hey, this one is cute ...
I am seriously insane at the moment. We already have a dog ... a Siberian Husky who is such a sweet and low-maintenance kinda girl. She is going to be 8 years old in November, is very mellow, and doesn't chew things up. So why would I want to start all over again with a non-potty trained, teething, hyped up little puppy? Because they make cute little outfits for that sized dog.
Yeah. You know you have a shopping problem when you consider getting a new dog just so you can dress it up.

First off, you will need a rich sugar scrub. I love The Body Shop scrubs, but unless I can get them on sale, I don't keep these on stock. I found a yummy pineapple scrub at Rite-Aid that I love, and I know Walmart and Target have some pretty inexpensive scrubs with great scents as well.
Next up, be sure you have a great razor! I have found that my hubby's Mach 3 razor works beautifully, but I am currently using Schick's Quattro because it is pink and I was in the mood for a girly color. You want to make sure you have a fresh cartridge so the razor can work to its full potential.
Allow your legs to soak in warm water for a few minutes. I am not a bath girl, so I just soak up the hot water standing in the shower. Scoop up a handful of your sugar scrub and apply to legs in a circular, upward motion. Be firm enough to allow for great exfoliation, but not so tough as to irritate your skin.
Now, most scrubs that I have used leave behind a moisturizing layer of oil. This makes for the best shave cream!! No need to foam up extra gel, that usually dries my skin out anyways! After rinsing the scrub from your legs, go right ahead and start shaving, starting from the ankle and working your way up. If you are anything like me, on a normal day of being a momma and rushing about, I always miss places - usually a nice little strip straight down my shin, or on my knees. Of course I never notice it until I am out and about either. So take your time and be sure to get every spot. I like to go over each leg a couple times to be sure.
Rinse off one last time in cooler water. This helps close up your pores and seals the hair follicles. Gently pat them dry ... don't rub them! This may cause irritation!! Plus, leaving a bit of the water on your skin adds more moisture.
Lastly, apply an ultra-rich body cream to moisturize. Again, The Body Shop has a wonderful line of creams (Cocoa Butter being one of my faves), but they are spendy. My highly recommended choice above all the rest is Burt's Bees Milk and Honey Lotion. It doesn't have a pretty smell, but it is natural and doesn't have all the artificial preservatives that tend to be drying. While this lotion is about $9 a bottle, a small amount goes a long way. And the smell fades pretty quickly (it is not horrible, but definitely not a floral or sweet smell). Massage your cream of choice into legs, and admire how soft and smooth they are!! They will feel amazing and look oh-so-sexy!
