Too many makeup samples!

I have a subscription to a couple of monthly beauty sample boxes (Birchbox for example). Most of the stuff I use, but I am rapidly gaining a surplus of some things I'll never be able to use up. What can I do with this excess beauty supply inventory? [more inside]

Fragrance free dry shampoo

I'm looking for a fragrance-free dry shampoo that's readily available in Australia. I've always just used Batiste "Blush" but the fragrance is so heavy and cloying that it now makes me feel physically ill (thanks to morning sickness). Are any of the other Batiste shampoos fragrance-free? Are there any fragrance-free alternatives? [more inside]

where can I buy pants/shorts designed like this

I found this pair of shorts at a thrift stores years ago and absolutely love them. They are the most comfortable pair of shorts I have ever worn, and I have just about worn them out. I would very much appreciate any thoughts on how to find this specific design, material, and where to find/buy information you may have! Thanks in advance! [more inside]

Help me aquire the perfect purse.

I am extremely picky about my purses. When I shop for bag first I go by appearance, quality, then strap drop. The strap drop excludes a good 95% of bags I like, but online it is the hardest thing to search by. Does there exist a site something like Zappos or Nordstrom that will let me search by strap drop? That would solve most of my problems. I have tried to google for a site like that but my Fu is failing me. [more inside]

Looking for a helpful hairdresser in London

I'm going to be in London this weekend and am looking for a men's hairdresser/barber. I'm from the UK but right now I live abroad, and between a lack of a common language and me not knowing what I want, I rarely get a haircut I'm pleased with. What I would really like is for someone to tell me what would look good on me, then make my hair be that (like all those style/makeover shows). Does anyone have any recommendations in central London?

Eye makeup for this eye shape?

If one has a fair amount of lid space, and space between the crease and eyebrow, is there a way to balance out eye makeup so it doesn't look like all the makeup is on the lid (therefore making eyes appear almost proportionally smaller)? Further, is there a way to do this with a minimal amount of makeup? Thanks!

Knee-high, lace-up, "WWI style" boots -- where?

I'm looking for a higher-quality replacement for my favorite leather boots. Google, AskMe archives, Frye and other sites yield nothing so far. I guess front lace-up boots are not the trend right now; surely the style is classic, and someone's making them? FWIW, I'm female with average width calves. [more inside]

Un-lose-able every day & night earrings

I have my ears pierced and don't want them to grow in. I want a small (or even tiny) pair of earrings that are pretty and subtle (so that they match everything) and flat (so that I can sleep in them and they won't bug my ears or head) and affix in a way that they'll never ever fall out.
