We went to the gem show the other day. It's nice to get out of the car and walk around a bit. You never know what "gems" you might find, if you will. What you will find are a lot of rocks, rocks, and more rocks. There are also mountains of cheap beads thrown into the mix. You might even find cell phone charms made out of, you guessed it, beads. I don't know who in the world buys those, but obviously there are some customers or they would stop making them, right? In Malaysia, a bunch of people had these hanging off their cell phones, which amused me immensely. Then there is booth after booth of turquoise southwestern style jewelry. It's just not my thing. Out of everything we looked at we did manage to find a few unique pieces.
Exhibit A: Model Syd
Can you guess what we bought at the gem show?
Also, Syd pointed out that I always like to cut her head out of the picture.
Exhibit B: Model Tay
Tibetan scarf made with boiled wool which makes it softer and gives it a really nice texture.
Exhibit C: Model A Rock of Salt
Himalayan Salt to be exact.
This salt is actually my new deodorant block, just add water. We'll see how it works. Trying to get away from the deodorant otherwise known as Alzheimer's Friend. We borrowed this eco-friendly beauty product book from the library. It's pretty much telling us what we want to know and don't want to know, how everything in our beauty makers are horrible for us. It's nothing we didn't already know. We have tried a whole lot of natural stuff before and still use some natural products. I'm a girl that sweats though, so I haven't found a good natural deodorant. Too much information? I didn't think so. What are your go-to natural products?
The Verdict: Gem show - nay with a bit of yay
