Five for Friday Pt. 48

1. Movies: Shut up crime!2. Ads-Must.Learn.French.Immediately.

3. Cakes: For Debi's Birthday last week, I made this cake. Then Lisa proclaimed me "The one who makes the cakes!" I always wanted to be the one who makes X, so I'm pretty happy about this. So what if my cakes always look terrible and fall apart like volcanos when cut, they taste divine.

4. Blog Love-Over at Raising Colombian Kids, Mr Colombian Daddy is doing a bang-up job writing a weekly music column. Latinophiles who want to learn more about the best songs can check it out here.

5. Stuff-I've been trying to phase parabens and other nasty chemichals out of our "beauty" products for awhile. I'm especially dilligent about the stuff we use on Elian but reading Estelle's article reminded me that I hadn't quite gotten around to finding some good face products yet. Specfically I need some "Holy crap, we're in our 30s face cream." On impulse I bought some "Yes to Blueberries" at Target and I have to say I'm pretty pleased. The company is privately held and based in San Francisco, which is bonus for a California girl who likes to support local companies when possible. Also the container is biodegradable and dispenses exactly the right amount for you face. I can't stress how important this is to me. I want to punch someone in the face at Oil of Olay, their containers break, you can't get the product out and they dispense way too much. Because punching people in the face is impractical/wrong instead I'm just going to swtich brands. Anyways, I recommend the stuff. It works good and is reasonably priced for civil servants on a budget. Let me know what you think.
