Answering Questions + Reader Recommendations {Listmania}

by Valerie on July 30, 2009 · 1 comment

One of my favorite things about blogging is all commenting. Thank you for your thoughtful comments and questions. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate them.

I am trying something new today – instead of answering questions in comments, I am going to take a few of the questions I have received from all of you in the last week or two, and answer them here.

Sometimes several of you asked the same question over comments or twitter or email, so I linked to each post which generated a question rather than each of you individually.

*Is the Almay Pure Blends mascara waterproof? No – it’s definitely more of the water resistant persuasion, and there does not seem to be a waterproof version.

*Can you advise me of a good green waterproof mascara that is out there that won’t break the bank? I can’t wear waterproof mascara, but I have heard good things about this Beauty Without Cruelty mascara.

*How do purple peppers taste? I promise a full assessment tomorrow {they’re on tonight’s menu}

*What recipe did you use for mango habanero salsa? It’s kind of made-up, based on seeing it made on Throwdown on the Food Network. Here is what husband and I came up with.

*How do Jade Mats hold up? Do they flake? I have read they don’t, but will definitely post an update in a few months once I have used mine more {I bought it last weekend so it will be a little while before I can give an assessment}.

And if you have a question I have not yet answered, feel free to ask it again in the comments but know it will likely come up in a future post {for example, I am saving one of Yogademia‘s questions on blogging for a future}. If you asked questions about the detox diet diaries, I promise to answer those as part of my weekend posts on that topic {here is a first set of answers from a couple of weeks ago}.

And now that we are done with questions, here are some awesome reader recommendations I will definitely be trying out in the near future:

* Yogitoes {Thank you If it’s a Hero}
* Kiehl’s Marvelous Mineral Mascara {Thank you Makeup Museum Curator}
* Article on nutritional labels versus nourishment {Thank you A2EatWrite}
* Darren Main’s Resources for the Urban Mystic {Thank you Yogademia}
