On Friday Bargain Bin: Winter Is Here

Crowdsourcing: does anyone have suggestions for where to buy lingerie that is semi-low priced but also doesn't look cheap? The garter belt here is great, and reasonably priced, but I'm looking to buy some sort of full bra-underwear-garter belt set and all the matching components for this one aren't available. Thoughts?

On Beauty Q&A: Do You Smell What I Smell?

@SarahP As a graduate student in Boston I have to ask - would you mind sharing the name of the salon here where you pulled this off?

Big thanks to all of the people who've been recommending Madison Street Beauty lately! I've been using it for a couple weeks now instead of my old liquid foundation and, miracle of miracles, my face has cleared up significantly. Also, for any interested parties, they're having a sale right now.

@Dancersize I'm trying to figure this out, too! Anyone have delicious, easy-ish suggestions?

On Mixed Signals, Mirrors, and Two Accidental May-Decembers

@Emby Absolutely. I was doing a whole masochistic let's-get-back-together thing this fall, and since I had suffered through the "I've been thinking this for a while," talk once already I literally told him that no matter the situation, day, or method (phone, etc. - there was a distance factor here) he should always just break things off if that's how he was feeling. Except I love Christmas, so I told him he wasn't allowed to do it on Christmas day.

@Saaoirse Such strong agreement on the first part of this plan! Also, this is only marginally applicable, but I'm going to say it anyway because it's the greatest line from that show: "Wow, that dinner smells good. Let me guess... meat?"

Assistance please! I've got a first date tonight, and everybody and their mom always insists that the key to this scenario is asking Amazing Questions. And whenever I try and think of Amazing Questions to ask people my mind goes completely blank. So, crowdsourcing: any suggestions?

On The Downton Abbey Fashion Whistle

Aaah! I hadn't seen the trailer for the Christmas special yet! Now I'm all excited, and calculating when, factoring in the time difference, industrious English people will get a copy of this streaming. I'm going to say right about during Christmas dinner... decisions, decisions.
