Time to buy new boots?

I just got two pairs of my boots repaired (new heels + seam repair), which cost $25 each time. Now both have new problems (zipper falling apart on one, seam on the opposite boot ripping on the other). If I'm at the point where I need shell out $50 to make them wearable again, is it time to just buy new ones? [more inside]

How Can I Stop Getting Razor Bumps?

I get pretty gnarly razor bumps on my chin and upper neck. I've tried the following things to try to get rid of them: (1) shaving with the grain, (2) a product called Bump Patrol, and (3) some kind of chemical hair removal cream I bought at Target. The first two didn't work and the third was too painful to keep up (and also didn't seem to remove all the hair.) Can anyone recommend something else? What's worked for you? [more inside]

Best lighting for applying makeup

I've been wearing makeup more regularly than before, but I can't seem to get my foundation to look consistent from my home (where I apply it) to work/elsewhere. I think this is because the lighting in my house is mostly incandescent and at work it's fluorescent. What techniques (or technology, do I need a lighted mirror?) can I use to make my makeup look decent at work? [more inside]
