Mum has been going on about getting a new watch for ages, so I'd like to surprise her with something nice for Christmas, but I'm having problems finding anything with her specific requirements - stretch band, large clear face, and either self-winding or battery-powered. Budget is fairly flexible - specific details are inside. [more inside]
Does anyone know of a few good brands that do a customizable travel make up palette that includes not only eye shadow but liner, as well as foundation, bronzer etc? I can't seem to find anything online except for a few hits on the big "mature" skin companies like Estee Lauder.... Thanks ladies!
Apparently every store I like to shop at now makes all of their button-down shirts and blouses semi-sheer (Loft is the biggest offender). The trouble is that I'm REALLY hot natured and try to wear as few non-removable layers as possible (cotton tanks as a layer are too hot). I'm hoping someone can link to tanks made of really, really thin material or some kind of miracle solution that doesn't require another layer of clothes. Any suggestions of how I can layer without feeling layered?
I like the look of this leather blazer. I'm specifically looking for a jacket I can wear indoors as a pseudo-suit jacket in my business casual workplace. Can you suggest a leather blazer, similar to this one, or at least NOT moto or mixed media style? I am in the U.S. Size-wise, I'm right on the edge between 1x and XXL, or between a straight 16 and an 18W. [more inside]

I recently lost a whole bunch of weight and have reached the point where tailoring my suits would just make them look absurd. Awesome, because someone gets new-to-them suit and I get to buy new clothing. Fun! But, I've been thinking I should invest in awesome suits for the reboot. askme led me to some google search where I found priceyoursuit. Have you ever used them? Know people who have? Opinions? Know of other/better companies like this that will make ladies business suits for me at crazy reasonable prices and of high quality so probably located East of me? And I don't have to travel there to get 'em?

What places should you look? Whom should you listen to for advice? In short, what do stylish Over-50 Ladies wear to their various traditional and non family events on a budget? Ideally in New York?

Some colleagues want to set up a voicemail system in the US for a small tech company in Australia and we need some intelligent, welcoming American female voices that sound at ease with technical jargon to do our answering messages. Any adult age. Slight accents ok. I haven't really been impressed with the sound of professional voice models - they're a bit too slick for our image. Any other suggestions? [more inside]
