I recently got some California Baby Calming Shampoo, and I love the smell. Sadly, the shampoo itself isn't my favorite. So do you know of any other awesome lavender-scented shampoos and conditioners? [more inside]
I am a petite, early-30s, hourglass-figured woman who has finally decided to get a bunch of (mostly) business casual items tailored, but need advice about the best plan of attack - because they are numerous, and varied. I would like to get the 20 items in the "to get tailored" area of my closet comprising tops, wrap dresses, and pants hemmed, have tab-button sleeves or necklines tacked closed, and/or waists taken in (pants). Will a tailor want to do these in multiple batches? I have questions about etiquette, expectations, ballpark timelines, and tailoring interactions in general... [more inside]

Looking for a natural Hair Mist / Spray that only makes hair shiny, but doesn't make it thinner or heavier [more inside]
Here's an example of makeup. Here are even more from the same page: makeup and makeup. What is this product, what is it for. This has been mystifying me for several years and it is very difficult for me to Google because I get back responses having to do with what I think of as makeup: lipstick, eyeshadow, concealer, foundation, etc. Makeup is all of those things. But makeup is also apparently a specific type of cosmetic...what does it do? Hopefully this will be the easiest question in the world to answer for someone who knows even a little bit more about cosmetics than I do.

I'm looking for recommendations for plus size lightweight turtleneck or mock neck shirts. I found one at Target on clearance, and it's not even on their website. I'd prefer black, cotton and spandex or jersey. Size 2xl (20-22.) This shirt makes me feel like a spy. Bonus for other spy clothes that can be worn to work.

MeFites, I'm sad about the American political situation. One thing that would make me happy is really soft, comfortable leggings. Like, kitten-soft. Thick. Stretchy. Leggings that will make me feel warm and safe as a baby deer while I am taking political action and strengthening my community. [more inside]
I cannot for the life of me, French braid my own hair. I was never taught. I swear I'm not 3 years old. Hope me? [more inside]
I know how some makeup works. For example, I understand that foundation is for covering up imperfections in the skin, such as acne scars. Lipstick draws attention to the lips, a sexual connotation, or a cultural affectation. Toner accentuates the cheekbones and thins the face. Is there more? I would like to know. [more inside]
Will Manic Panic shocking blue wash out of virgin dark blonde hair? [more inside]
I love love love Gudrun Sjödén style clothing. Arty/bohemian style (for lack of better words), good quality, lovely colours, comfortable but still with some structure to it. This is a good example of what I mean. Help me find more! [more inside]
I bought a vintage pink cape to wear with a costume. Unfortunately the item was posted with the (significantly) wrong size. However, the only problem is that the collar is too tight for me. Seeking creative ideas about making it work! [more inside]
