What we're talking about today is drugstore makeup so if you want to check it out on the site just type in "drugstore" in the search bar. So Debbie, are you up for hearing a little of m blog talk about drugstore makeup?

Debbie:
Absolutely I would love that. I was thinking about that, as a daughter of a pharmacist I really appreciate drugstore make up, so go for it.

Susan:
I forgot about that, so when you were a kid you would hang around your dad's drugstore and check out the makeup?

Debbie:
Well they didn't actually have that much I sort of asked him if he would do that but that wasn't his thing but I have a special affinity for drugstores

Susan:
Okay well I will start out be sort of blog talking and I'm going to tell you that...

Blog is read.

Debbie:
I love it I'm actually laughing to myself because I greatly admire, have read the biography and have so much respect for Eleanor Roosevelt but I got to tell you I still think that's a stretch on the beauty meter.

Susan:
Well she's a gosh darnette and can't we give her beauty points to those who are a gosh darnette?

Debbie:
I totally respectful of her but as you're reading that and i had read your blog before I did just have to giggle on the Eleanor Roosevelt/Beauty o meter. But on the same tone and I don't always agree with you on things but this really resonated with me because I did realize after reading this how much I think about people in terms of beauty and have really gotten away from that concept of physical beauty because there's so many people that I meet that are just warm and beautiful and creative and smart and as you say confident and I think 'gosh that's a really beautiful women' now if I would step back and look at what is considered to be classic beauty it certainly wouldn't fit in that realm. But I do love the idea of appreciating of how someone can light up a room and not necessarily be the most "beautiful" women in the room.

Susan:
I think the opposite holds true too. I remember I was sitting with David, my husband, and we were looking through me highschool yearbook. And just from those little tiny square pictures he would say to me "oh she is beautiful she must have been so popular" and I'd look at who he picked and inevitably it was absolutely not a popular girl and when I would show him the pictures of who was considered beautiful in our high school he would never believe that that was the beautiful picture because what can you tell from a picture?

Debbie:
Well also think back about it Susan, think about who was considered popular or beautiful or intimidating. I mean when I look back and think about who the heck was intimidating when I was 15 years old it actually makes me laugh. I mean I've been fortunate in growing up to be a very confident person and you know whether beautiful or not I'm not even talking about that I'm talking about the fact that I've grown into a very confident women and it makes me laugh and almost sad in a way that these make-up bee girls are the ones that intimidated me a lot
