I’m Back

Cate Blanchett is unretouched

Cate Blanchett for SKII

Look at Cate Blanchett! I love that Intelligent Life used a picture of her that’s more akin to what she really looks like vs. her ads for SKII. Don’t get me wrong, I do think that Cate looks great in her ads. In both pictures, you’ll still notice the lovely quality of her skin. Excellent, even tone with hardly any pores. She’s an extraordinary actress and I think that it’s brave of her to be so “naked” on that magazine cover. At 42, she’s lived a lot already, so I’m not going to say that she looks great “for” 42. She looks great, period, wouldn’t you agree?


So here in LisaLand, I’ve been coping with an exhausting schedule that includes full-time school and mommyhood. It’s been tough to keep up with my site. :(

I’ve conquered at least one of those for the time being, at least until the first week of April. All A’s this last semester and I’ve got some decisions to make. I’m going in a new direction with the school path.

Speaking of school, Jenny has done a fine job today of linking me to some very important items regarding student loans. If you’re like 99% of us, chances are that you’ve still got to deal with student loans. UGH!
