PS: I was just looking at qvc.com and anything that you purchase today can be put on 5 payments. (take your total and divide by 5 and that is how much you pay each month for 5 months) Also, check out the TSV supersmile toothpaste! (I have used it for almost 4 years and it is great at whiting teeth!)

Ojon Shine and Protecting mist
I have seen this Peter Thomas Roth mineral spf 30 powder featured in a few magazines and I think I might try it this summer. I always hate the way my face feels when I put sunscreen on (even if they say it is oil free) and I hope this will feel better. It is also available on QVC and includes another tube of sunscreen for an extra $9.00. (item #83676) Great deal!!

Having read Emily Giffen's other books, I bought this the day it came out. Although is was entertaining, the main character made me mad at times - so I stopped reading it for a week. I did end up finishing it and I do appreciate the way in which this author pulls me into the story. The author provides characters who are not perfect and predictable and this is what keeps me coming back to her books.
The author of this book (a rogue sociologist) follows a Chicago gang for 10 years and studies how the poor live. Having looked to buy a Condo in a mixed-income housing development in Chicago, I started to look into the CHA and the Plan for Transformation (incorporating market-rate homes in with section-8 housing). Sudhir Venkatesh had done extensive research into this new housing plan and I think I might read his book Off the Books. (check out this article)
