    Oh what fun!
    Living a double life has it’s benefits…
    Is it too early for a vodka martini?

    Hilarious – LTSB must have quite a life!

    PS I recently quit reading several blogs I had followed for a long time due to an over abundance of sponsored posts. So I am happy that you don’t succumb to this – although some of these sound pretty fun!

    Ah the fantasy life! There are days when I too would gladly embrace such problems in lieu of dealing with a failed software implementation!

    I think you could grab some of this fun, without neglecting your real work.

    In all seriousness, I hope that LTSB lets us know what she thinks of the blouse.

    LTSB is having all the fun! I keep getting press releases for nursing home insurance plans, and books about retirement and how to skype with your grandkids. And offers to review baby monitors. Hmmm…

    Hey, those opportunities are perks … and I think you should definitely take advantage of some of the perks (but only the ones that actually interest you.)

    Oh, I really had to laugh at this. Until a month ago, I politely turned down ALL queries and then when I finally do take the plunge, I find that four of us in my circle of bloggers have all received the same offer and accordingly blogged. Safe to say that I’m feeling fairly bummed and wish I’d stuck to my no PR ways.

    Now, I need to tweet this message daily.

    Take the plane and let us know how you enjoy it. Glad your not one of those blogs that have tons of sponsers. Like you just the way you are. Fun post though.

    Your blog is famous, I must say, so no wonder offered all those things!
    I have not reached year 3 of blogging, am a private person, not advertising anything, so I have been left alone, thank god.
    I´m not surprised, that you have turned those offers down.
    Just wondering, had you accepted something, what might have happened next?

    “Mr. Pacino’s hair moment” in which you are a wicked, wicked woman who disabled the lightbox feature enabling that poor man to be enlarged not once, but TWICE! Oh Al, I’ve never known what to make of your style choices but I hope you threw that thing on top of your head in a hair moment of irony.

    It’s time. You need people. At the very least to manage your virtual reality. Don’t believe the genie in the $10 bottle of vodka, it will say you don’t. Cheap-skate! (I’m sure it is wonderful stuff, no offense meant, lol)

    Well, I’m in sales, so – lovely job, Mr Pacino’s hair thrown in for light relief.

    Maybe if you paired the classy low cost vodka recommendation with your glamorous low price Oscar dress experience, you could open up a wonderful niche in your secret blogging life? I’d be waiting for every single line, I swear!

    Oh do go for all that sort of stuff, Lisa! Accept it, write about it. So long as you can be truthful and sound like yourself, we would be very well entertained.

    I rarely get offers. I think it might be kind of fun though. Go for it, missy.

    The only offers’ this gel gets is 50%/30% down to 10% to lure me to buy unnecessary luxe items.

    Laughing at DP’s post. Ida

    While Al Pacino has clearly jumped the hair shark, you, my invisible friend Lisa, are a delight!

    I did NOT think “laser” when I saw that photo.

    I admit, I kept scrolling back to that photo of Al Pacino. I just can’t get that hair out of my mind…he looks like a bass player from a classic rock cover band! So jealous of you going to Rebecca Taylor too! My favorite pair of bright yellow flippy linen shorts are by her. Nice one!

    Thinking about the post. Do try the stuff and honestly report on it. We trust your opinion. My goodness your lipstick quest sent me out trying all you recomended and discoveered they looked terrible on my skin tone, but loved the adventure and you pointed me to products I was not aware of.

    Bottom line, go for it!
