Hope everyone has recovered from budgeting 101, yesterday.
Today, we enter the fine world of crystal and china. You know the stuff that your girlfriend puts on her bridal registry, gets it, but serves you on paper plates.
Anyway, one day I was scouring around the Internet to price some crystal flutes. I came across a great, great deal!
In the world of crystal and china- Bacarat- the most famous and expensive, waterford.com, and lenox.com The price points can run from 5,000.00 to a basic Bacarat vase to 150.00 for a leaded crystal flute from waterford.com.
In terms of china, my sister's lenox.com full service china set that I have yet to eat off, which was 10 plus years ago, cost about a month's rent.

First up Skin Care:
Murad.com We bought Murad or the famous Dr. Murad skin care after hearing him give a speech on the importance of topical Vitamin C and his highly concentrated Acne Spot treatment.

Spring is here, spring is here! That is our mantra around here while we were once again shoveling snow!
But, we went a shopping!
We are trying as many all natural beauty products so here are our finds:
Skincare: thecottagegreenhouse.com This is an 98 percent all natural brand that was part of the The View viewyourdeal.com segment Oprah Magazine Edition. We bought Blood Orange and Grapefruit body lotion, the scent is amazing and it is so moisturizing, there is a Orange and Honey Mask we snagged two, and a Cucumber and Honey Shower Gel, which rinses off so clean without drying.
Body care: All natural lavender deodorant, we heard so much about the high levels of metals in our deodorant so we gave it a try and I must say it does do wonders. It smells very good and it beats out some of your higher end all natural deodorant products. We bought two at target.com and it 13.00 for two.
Perfume Oils: This is the next major thing!
We have a floral patchouli from Mave and it was okay, scent di…
