It’s a stormy day here in Kaneohe (pronounced khan-ay-oh-hey), but no one told the birds clamoring up a storm outside. Strangely, the neighborhood chickens have been relatively quiet this morning. I guess they don’t go in for singing in the rain like the other birds do.
Waking up to the pouring rain and birds singing outside are some of my favorite things about staying here at my in-laws’. Both are daily occurrences here in the jungle and make the giant mosquitos that much easier to bear.

I really appreciate the extra guest posts submitted by Sam, Olga, Audrey and everyone else lately. Haven’t they been great? Seriously, this week I learned a new technique for href="http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/makeup-tipshow-to/whats-the-best-place-to-match-to-your-foundation/">matching my foundation, read some good ideas for ways to href="http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/makeup-tipshow-to/perfume-storage-how-to-store-your-fragrances-to-keep-them-at-their-fragrant-best/">store my fragrances at home, found out about the Sally Beauty href="http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/cosmetics/dont-overlook-the-earth-tone-sally-girl-eye-shadow-connecting-compacts/">earth tone shadows, found out about a few href="http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/cosmetics/three-fun-makeup-sets-to-add-to-your-christmas-wish-list/">interesting makeup sets recommended by a talented makeup artist and bunch of href="http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/tag/guest-post/">other cool stuff too.
I think the guest posts have been so great, in fact, that I’ve taken a little extra time for myself and my family on this trip, spending less time on the computer than I usually do. Once I got past the first few painful days of Internet withdrawal (I had the shakes real bad, LOL!), it got a lot easier.
How are things in your end of the jungle? Any peacock sightings or awesome new makeup to report?

I experienced what can only be described as a euphoric scent-sory experience the other day with a Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelette ($6 for a pack of 30). El Hub walked in on me while I was holding one of them up to my nose and breathing deeply (smells like those cucumber water drinks you get at a fancy shamncy spas). I must have looked like Gollum from Middle Earth, cradling my little precious…
These softer-than-soft wipes are the latest additions to the Yes To ______ line of organic eco-friendly skin and hair products.
I think the company’s pretty cool, especially when they release something I really like.
