Investment Piece of the Month

February 3, 2014

As winter continues to drag its unwanted butt along, my hands are taking an enormous beating from the cold, dry weather. With every strike of the keyboard and dip in atmospheric temperature, my hands send out a silent cry for help as they draw closer and closer to cracking. For the love of God, help us! We do everything for you!

The situation is truly dire.

My hands were so dry that, on a girls’ weekend a few weeks ago, I finally coughed up the dough to buy some ‘spensive hand cream because they hurt so badly. I only did so after imbibing a handful of mimosas as I usually would never spend substantial munz on a hand cream of all things, but I am so glad I did it. I bought Burt’s Bees Ultimate Care Hand Cream for $13 and my hands gave me a round of applause. -- Ultimate Care Hand Cream

Ah this stuff is so good and definitely worth the $13 — it feels like you are rubbing your hands in a tub of Country Crock except with real nutrients and it’s 99% all natural. I wonder what’s in that one percent and if we should occupy a city to protest it. I normally wouldn’t dream of spending that kind of money on a lotion just for your hands, but desperate times call for desperate measures. My hands were at their cracking point. If you and your hands are currently in a fight over their dryness, I highly recommend this hand cream as your therapy and remediation.

In other news, I am very excited to announce that SST reader Heather M. won the Benissimo giveaway! Heather I emailed you earlier this morning but please let me know your shipping address so we can get your delicious goodies to you… Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway, I will do another one soon. Thank you also for reading this baby blog of mine, it truly warms my heart.

Even though it’s Monday and Monday blows, we can all be thankful that at least we are not Peyton Manning today. Poor guy. Unless Peyton is an SST reader too!?! This is a great rumor to spread… Peyton Manning reads SST and you should too!

    Such a great point, especially if I knew what parabens are…
