Do Your Eyelashes Say You Are Naughty... GIVE AWAY!!!!

My birthday was yesterday... yep, I made it one year closer to 40! Woooo-Hooooo!
eh, 37 is the new 27 right?

I told my mother that I didn't mind the 3 so much, I am used to the 3... it is the 7 that I don't like. Odd numbers are tough, they sound so much older than the even numbers for some reason. 34 sounds so much younger than 43 doesn't it?


sigh.


Overall it was a pretty good day. Everyone I love called me and made me laugh in some way. Cousin Steve had me laughing because we were making plans for my weekend in the Chicago area which includes drinking, drinking... uhm, pizza, drinking and tattoos. OH-and the best part of that weekend is that I am not takin' the little people that suck the life out of me on a daily basis. I love my children-Good God I love them-I just need to run away from them for a day or two so that I can continue to love them.


Emma stormed into the bathroom last night while I was, uh, occupado, and said "Mama? When are we going to celebrate your birfday?" I responded that we are not. I explained that I didn't want to celebrate, I was happy with the way it was, and she looked at me and frowned and said "But Mama... how are you going to grow if we don't celebrate your birthday?" Ahhh, young grasshopper, you will learn that when you are 37 the only growing that will take place happens in the outward fashion and not the upward.


So the kids sang to me and gave me hugs and kisses... yeah, sweet. I would have preferred some diamond earrings, but they are only kids. They won't be able to afford diamond earrings for me until they are in their teens.


wankette gave me a pic of Chad Kroeger over at Threedonia. I quickly printed off 100 copies of it and rolled in them.



And please, if you do not find Chad Kroeger attractive or do not like his music, do not comment and tell me this. I am guessing that the male readers do not like him... just like they don't like any of the "manpictures" that I put on here... but tough, it was my birthday and I heart Chad Kroeger. Leave me alone.


TRO (otherwise known as Brunette Lover... Gasp) also gifted me this on his site. Go on down and pause The Muse so that you get the full effect of this little video. Play it as many times as you need to... I think I have hit replay about 241 times now. Mercy.




I knew that I needed to share it with you all the moment I drooled, er... saw it.


Okay... so with all of this birthday talk, I thought since I didn't get any presents from my family because no one really loves me (that sentence was solely for my mother because she asked me what I wanted and I said "Nothing" and she said "Oh sure, just like your father." Which in mom talk means that I will say I want nothing and then when I get nothing I will bitch and moan-which honestly is a present in and of itself.) I thought I would give a gift to you ladies.


That is right folks... it is time for another FREE GIVE AWAY!!!!!!


If you know me at all you will know that I have a passion for mascara and I have been on an eternal quest to find the perfect mascara-the kind that actually makes my eyelashes look like a movie star. I had decided to get eyelash extensions (yes-they have those!) but was waiting for a few months until Carl came home because really, what would be the point of having eyelashes that swayed in the wind if I didn't have a man around to bat them at. Well, one day when I was picking up some "necessities" at the Sephora counter I asked the lady in the white doctor's coat who isn't really a medical doctor but a doctor of make up... which is even better right? Anyway, I asked her if she had a good mascara because mine was just not cutting it and she handed me the best gift a woman could give another woman. It was as if she was handing me the secret to the woman vault and I was the chosen one.


Ladies... I introduce you to the one thing that will actually change your life. I know we hear that all of the time, but this really will change your life. I promise!



This mascara thickens and lengthens-and as a woman, I know how many times that promise has been made to us-and yes, I am still talking about mascara here. It is amazing... it is like an orgasm for your eyelashes. No kidding!


So I have Four... count em'... FOUR Benefit Bad gal Lash that is true to it's words when it shouts "it is like wearing false eyelashes without the glue." I completely, 100% stand by that description... I also like that they say it is for the naughty gal in us all. *giggle*


All you have to do is tell me which actress you find unbelievable. Yes... I said actress. I do this for a two reasons... #1 we are women and women can appreciate another woman without worrying about her place in the world as a heterosexual independent hot mama, and #2 I am getting so damn tired of the fellas around here emailing me and asking me to put some ladies on here... I mean, wtf Jimmy? This is the six-pack for women and you all know you come around just to get the coveted secrets about the opposite sex that confuses you and makes you feel all warm inside at the same time. But, I am nice and thought I would toss you men a bone.


So that is it... there will be 4 women with orgasmic eyelashes as a gift from ME on the day after my birthday.


I am so damn nice.


You have until Sunday night (as usual) and the winner will be chosen by my favorite mechanical device--the Random Generator and announced Monday morning with the pics of the actresses.


*scratching my head wondering just what I am getting myself into...*


Good luck!

Ok - I know she's not doing anything anymore, but my favorite is Meg Ryan. Not only is she cute, but she seems so nice - and who wouldn't fall in love with the girl next door? In my own mind's eye, I AM Meg Ryan...so why hasn't Hollywood come knocking?

momto5minnies said...

I could have gotten you some FREE mascara from a very reputable source ;) STILL CAN ...

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY to my blogging friend who is 1 year and 8 days younger than me. I think I liked the 7 better than the 8.

Hmmmm ... I find Tiger Wood's bride to be very beautiful. Did you catch their new family shot with the two babes and two dogs. Very sweet.

I also think that Catherine Zeta Jones is just so pretty. About a dozen times a day I am reminded how pretty Jennifer Aniston is on my facebook side bar. I'll let you choose.

I would also love to look as good as Christy Brinkley at age 55 ... WOW!

momto5minnies said...

OH MY ... I love the old MEG RYAN ... pre-cosmetic surgery.

Sarah said...

Hmmmm...this is a fun question. Are we basing this on acting skills, or looks? Usually these don't go hand in hand. Regardless, Kate Winslet and Scarlett Johannson (sp?)...both looks and acting skills. I used to like Meg Ryan before she flipped out about getting older and now looks scary instead of just cute.

jess said...

I have a little crush on Kelly Rippa. She's so darn cute!

Betty Beguiles said...

Happy belated birthday!

Would I be betraying my female sisters to say that I am a fan of Angelina Jolie? ;)

MD said...

My two cents: Halle Berry, Charlize Theron and Scarlett Johannsen...stunning beauties, all of them :)

Urban Mom said...

I had no idea about your birthday! Happy late one! And don't worry about the 7. Mine was a 9. A NINE! How the hell did THAT happen???? I plan to completely freak out next year.

My quest for the perfect mascara is only equalled by my quest for the perfect pair of jeans. Count me in for the giveaway.

And I'd come back in my next life as Charlize Theron. And I like Jennifer Aniston because she's older than me and looks amazing.

Kristina said...

Happy Birthday! I am going to say that I like Angelina Jolie- (and that has nothing to do with the fact that my husband says my body looks like hers. He is so blind.) but only when she's not looking super skinny. I think Charlize Theron is beautiful. And, Catherine Zeta Jones has it all, I mean all.

jana (and sometimes renee) said...

I'm a huge Audrey Hepburn fan. Just seeing a picture of her makes me want to throw on my sweats and wine-stained Dynomite t-shirt, listlessly bundle my hair into a (non-sexy) messy, greasy ponytail, strap on a headband, and give up.

Maybe the mascara will give me a reason to live.

Jonni said...

I am with Jana, love Audry Hepburn. Will the mascara make me look like her??? Then send it on.
Thanks,
Jonni

The Wannabe Redhead said...

Hands down, Kate Winslet! She's looked STUNNING at all the award shows and I love the Bri-ish accent!
Happy Belated Birthday, June! I think you're right about odd numbered birthdays sounding "older"...don't know what it is! I've got an odd one coming up :)--not cool! lololol

Andrea Z. said...

I had figured that Angelina Jolie would have already made the list, but I have to say I have been a fan of hers from way back. Pushing Tin, Girl Interupted and that one with Johnny Lee.

And of course the others that have been posted are completely beautiful.

And I could totally use some new mascara! The one I have is pretty sad and I seem to only buy things for my children. Good grief, when will I grow out of that?

Sign me up!

Anonymous said...

hahaha!
One sentence into, If you know me at all...it was so weird, I started to hear you sounding just like Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde, so fun!
So I nominate Reese Witherspoon, June's alter ego.
hahaha,
Aunt Barbara

lolaberly said...

I love Reese Witherspoon! :)

Also, another fave mascara in my book at least is Prescriptives False Eyelashes. mmm. love it.

Be careful with lash extensions, especially if they are glued on (am I a disgrace to females everywhere for not knowing if they are?). Anyway, I had fake eyelashes put on for my wedding and my poor lashes wanted to kill me when I attempted to remove them! OUCH!

Christine said...

I still love Julia Roberts. I can still see her laughing in Pretty Woman. Love her brown eyes and lips. Natural beauty and now she is a mama. A busy mama!

TRO said...

Met Ryan - used to be too cutesie and still too flat chested.

Kelly Ripa - Too cutsie and too flat chested.

Kate Whinslet - butt-ugly without Photoshop. Not at all a good actress.

Angelina Jolie - dried-up like Madonna but with advertisements all over her body.

Reese Witherspoon - cute, not flat chested, she'll do.

Charlize Theron - have you seen her without makeup? Scary.

Catherine Zeta Jones - eh, she'll do too if you can wash the Michael Douglas smell off of her.

Anonymous said...

Happy Belated Birthday!! I turn 39 next month (UGH!)...next year will probably be the one that bothers me.
Any ways, I wanted to throw in Cameron Diaz.....she's pretty, funny, and has attitude - what's not to like about that? Hope this satisfies your male readers and we can get back to the pictures of swoon worthy men. ;-)

Melissa said...

Have already told my husband that if I ever switch sides, I will totally go for Ashley Judd. She is beautiful, has a rockin' bod and is pretty smart.
Happy Birthday!

Stacy said...

Happy late birthday!

I agree with whoever above said Halle Berry. I think she's 42 and looks great.

Stacy

Mama DB said...

Kate Winslet! She's "normal sized" and talented and GORGEOUS. Enough said.

mbbutler said...

Selma Hayek.

Melissa said...

Sandra Bullock is hot, hot hot!

Paula in MN said...

Audry Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Julianna Moore. Classy, classy, classy.

Melissa said...

Eva Mendes is on the hot list, too!

Sarah (JOT) said...

Kate Beckinsale - nice package all around (bod, hair, pretty face, acting ability, and the British accent).

Soliloquy said...

Welcome to 37!

What's with that You Tube clip? You are such a horn-dog. Is that what deployment does to you?

I want Gwyneth Paltrow's face and Kelly Ripa's bod.

Can I keep my own boobs, though, please?

Afterall, I PAID for them!

If I win, I will compare your Bad Girl stuff to my own orgasmic mascara trick and let you know.

Eye lash extensions?? For real? GO FOR IT!

HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!!

wankette said...

If you meant, "Of all time...", I would offer up Merle Oberon. No one else looked like her, ever.

But ipso facto "current"...I'd have to go with Martina Gedeck. She played the title character in "Mostly Martha" & the actress both leads loved in "The Secret Lives of Others". She has a fierce intelligence about her, that draws you in -- and what you may have missed at first becomes more and more apparent as you watch her. Beauty and independence and a body that's so good she doesn't have to put it on display. I wish I was her.

elm said...

Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Audrey Hepburn

They are each so pretty and each have a very different look bout them... GORGEOUS!

Beth W. said...

Happy Birthday!

Let's see..Sandra Bullock, of course, Audrey Hepburn, and Goldie Hawn (she still makes me laugh). Take care.

Traffic Cop Timmy said...

"I am guessing that the male readers do not like him... just like they don't like any of the "manpictures" that I put on here"

Now June, that's just not true. There are a lot of your swoon-worthy pics that make me weak-kneed! I'll be the first (and maybe only) hetero male to admit that. That Eddie guy that Steph sent you over at 3donia for your BD is totally dreamy! (Rut roh - I said that out loud didn't I.)

hellolittlepeepers said...

Sandra Bullock. She is pretty much everything I am not, look wise. Plus she probably looks good without make up. She just looks real to me.

june cleaver said...

Timmy... uhm... okay.

Gretchen said...

Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston.

I love gals with good hair! Thanks for the laughs

TRO said...

Selma Hayek - HOT, HOT, HOT

Sandra Bullock - hot, hot, hot

Lisa said...

I have eight years on you, so no pity on the birthday front. :)

As for women, I think Natalie Portman is beautiful. If I had to go older, I would choose Susan Sarandon.

Oh, and I think I have been gyped. My teenagers never bought me diamonds for my birthday. I will alert my 21 year old that she can make up for it, if she desires.

Musings of the Mrs. said...

How can I NOT ignore dirty laundry when there is mascara on the line. I cannot wait to try this mascara. I'm sure I need a life change right now (and I'm sure if my lashes are lucious, my cast will be fully ignored).

I am a big Angelina lover. I think she is really quite beautiful. Especially when she is on Brad Pitt's arm. Mmmm....Brad....

Anonymous said...

Hey! I'd love mascara...I'm pregnant and need to take the looks away from my belly :)
Plus you already know my address..

I think Jennifer Anniston in The Break-Up. She's gorgeous and so tan! Plus, she has pretty good taste in men...aside from Brad.

Love ya
Claire

Mairin :o) said...

ooooo! Me please! I just bought three mascara last week for the same reason. Did you know that mascara models wear fakes?

My suggestion for most beauteous is Vivian Leigh.
(sorry if this duplicates, the entry chokes).

Melissa said...

Piper Parabo (coyote ugly,cheaper by the dozen) is beautiful!! I am also a Meg Ryan fan and Angelina Jolie..

Happy Birthday!!!

Miss Kate said...

In honor of your birthday, I am de-lurking from Google Reader (I found you through Domestically Disabled Girl) to wish you a very happy (day-late) birthday!

(PS: Salma Hayek)

angie a in mo said...

I have loved Drew Barrymore forever. She has not always made the best choices (in her career or in her personal life), but she just keeps bouncing back. And she seems to be so happy just being herself.

Head o' Hair said...

Happy Birthday--I'm hitting that one next so here's hoping it is good!

Angela Bassett--beautiful, smart, and an amazing actress..

Anna B. said...

Happy Birthday...

Audrey Hepburn beautiful, classy actress. And she portrayed all when she played character Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffanys

Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds. You mean like the blues?
Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat, and maybe it's been raining too long. You're just sad, that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid, and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?

Stiletto Reflections said...

Carmen Electra! Unless someone already said that then I'll pick Eva Mendes!

Diva Mom Vicki said...

Happy Belated Birthday to my favorite Mom blogger. Seriously. You make me laugh, and the world needs more joy.

Both my husband and I adore Audrey Hepburn and have planned since our dating days to name our daughter Audrey or some variation of that name. (But 2 boys so far and we were kind enough to stick with masculine names.)

We also both have crushes on Sarah Palin. I know she's not an actress but any woman who throws herself into the den of wolves of politics deserves my respect.

Happy Mardi Gras!

Kelly said...

I have to agree with the others on Audrey Hepburn and a close second for me is Grace Kelly(she became a real life princess and who doesn't LOVE that?). They're both classic...the complete package! <3

Blessed Mama said...

Another Drew Barrymore fan here.
Happy belated birthday.
And going back to a previous post, I love your blog and think you are sooo not pollyannaish! Thanks for always making me laugh!

Kelli said...

Kate Beckinsale. She's not my favorite actress, but she is totally unbelievably beautiful.

mary margaret said...

Well, if I'm gonna talk about acting, then I dearly love Sissy Spacek and Kathy Bates. Not good looking--but they can actually act.

No sympathy for turning 37. 37!! I have underwear that old. OK, not really, but I am going to be turning 50. 50!!!! I may have to face up the fact that I am middle-aged (if I live to be 100, that is).

Happy Birthday, June. I think 50 yr old women deserve nice eyelashes, don't you?

Libby Mo said...

Happy belated Birthday June!
Some women who are sooo gorgeous that I don't even mind my husband lusting after are Michelle Pfeiffer (that woman does not age!), Monica Bellucci, Olivia Williams, and Aishwarya Rai.
And I totally agree with Audrey Hepburn - one of a kind beauty.

Out on a Limb said...

If I'm going with just acting, I'd have to say Tyne Daly. I think she's brilliant.

For looks: Selma Hayek and Angelina Jolie.

Riann said...

Oooooo, I would totally go for Jessica Alba. I can only dream of having her body!
Happy Late Birthday!

Kimberly said...

Ok, not sure whether "unbelievable" means that she is beautiful or that I can't give a rat's patooty about her.

So I will go with both. I like Reese Witherspoon, though she is overexposed. I think she is real and also quite pretty. AND a mom!

I find Angelina Jolie to be "unbelievable" in the sense that my grandmother would utter that word. She certainly thinks a lot of herself, doesn't she?

DaniD said...

I would love to try the mascara!
danild@att.net

midwestmom3 said...

I think Reese Witherspoon is great.
Happy Birthday!
This year is my 4-0, but I taught our toddler to say that mommmy is 18, so I think I'll stay with that!

Anonymous said...

Angelina Jolie. You are still young-wait until 44 is creeping up! You are only as old as you feel! :)

RN Beth in VA said...

You have the best contests! I will do almost anything for a good deodorant and/or mascara.

Sally Fields, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep shine in their acting abilities as well as looks.

Michelle Pfeiffer, Kate Hudson (I love flat chested women who don't get implants) and Jessica Alba for looks alone.

dee said...

def jennifer anniston. she is my all time favorite.
i also like julia roberts and im always curious abt katie holmes-cruise. i think she is beautiful and mysterious, even if her husband is a nut.

i just lost my mascara yesterday so i could really use a new one!

happy belated birthday! love your blog.

+JMJ+ said...

I do think that Jennifer Garner can speak volumes without ever speaking but I'd have to say my favorite actress is my little sister, Deirdre Quinn of MISS CONGENIALITY, Miss Texas.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0703820/

NO ONE makes me laugh like this girl. :)

mommymommyland said...

Well, since I want to play, I guess Angelina Jolie is pretty hot up there in Tomb raider, but nicole kidman (in Moulon Rouge) is nice too, and Cathrine Zeta Jones.

Sagey said...

Am I too late? I am going to go with Julia Roberts. Beautiful and a mom!

Libby Mo said...

A few more who are not Angelina Joli: Ingrid Bergman (unbelievably good in every movie she was in - especially "Notorious") and Renee Russo (she was amazing in the Thomas Crown Affair).

passingdowncrazy said...

I'd have to say Anne Hathaway. Sorry! I've watched Princess Diaries a gazillion times with my three girls.

Shannon said...

I think Freida Pinto from "Slumdog Millionaire" is absolutely breathtaking!
Thanks for all the great laughs your blog provides me.
Happy belated birthday!

Gretchen said...

I am going out on a limb with a newbie--Jennifer Westfeldt who was on the short lived Notes from the Underbelly

Joannie said...

Happy Birthday!

I've always been insanely jealous of Grace Kelly. She was beautiful, elegant, had perfect poise... and was a princess. *sigh*

And I could use good mascara.

hellolittlepeepers said...

Oh can you do a demonstration of this mascara. One eye on, one eye off? I am often in search of great make up. I am currently on a mission to find the perfect everyday lip color that isn't my own.

momto5minnies said...

You know ... watching the OSCARS, I thought that Penelope Cruz was quite beautiful. She reminds me of a current Audrey Hepburn.
