How is This Legal?

Before it hits your inbox and sounds like a hoax...

Nordstrom is changing the packaging on their "Eyes Lips Face" makeup, so they're selling everything that says "E.L.F." for $1.00!

Cut and past the following website:

It is fun to try things when you don't have to worry about the cost! They have powder, mascara, brushes, nail polish, you name it .. Just thought I'd pass along the good deal. Also, if you use the coupon code: CAROLINA you will get $7.50 off your first $15 of your purchase.

And to continue this celebration of womanhood I will sing a song we can all relate to:

I'm a girl, and by me that's only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervy.

I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place.
Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy,
Like a filly who is ready for the race!

When I have a brand new hairdo

With my eyelashes all in curl,
I float as the clouds on air do,

I enjoy being a girl!

When men say I'm cute and funny

And my teeth aren't teeth, but pearl,

I just lap it up like honey

I enjoy being a girl!

I flip when a fellow sends me flowers,
I drool over dresses made of lace,

I talk on the telephone for hours
With a pound and a half of cream upon my face!

I'm strictly a female-female

And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male

Who'll enjoy being a guy having a

When men say I'm sweet as candy
As around in a dance we whirl,

It goes to my head like brandy,

I enjoy being a girl!

When someone with eyes that smoulder

Says he loves ev'ry silken curl
That falls on my iv'ry shoulder,

I enjoy being a girl!

When I hear the compliment'ry whistle

That greets my bikini by the sea,

I turn and I glower and I bristle,

But I'm happy to know the whistle's meant for me!

I'm strictly a female-female

And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male

Who'll enjoy being a guy having a

Another! Another! What about Bali Ha'i from South Pacific.

Turns out, the Nordstrom aspect of it is a hoax, according to Snopes.

That didn't stop me from buying a whole bunch of cheap makeup, though.

Good looking out, Average Jane!

Yeah, with advertising you never know. Nordstrom claims not to know who released that information. "Who on Earth plugged our company for free causing hundreds of women to flock to our department stores asking about our great makeup deal? How dare they?!"

Hahahahahahaha - especially the Ellen pic. So on pointe. Like a ballerina.

Chris: My mom used to wash my hair in the sink and sing the song from South Pacific. I had a man trapped in my hair for years.

Carolyn: Thanks! Picture blogs write themselves. And photgraph themselves.
