    I loved the movie “The Help” and would love to read the original book (since most movies leave out a lot of scenes from the original manuscript). I like Estee Lauder because their scents are generally light. Although Chanel has been around for a while, the scent is a little heavy for me. I am mostly “tech illiterate” but I would love to try the Kindle Fire. It does not seem as intimidating as some of the other tech gadgets.

I did, however, order a Kindle Fire for my 82 year old Mother who told me she had graduated from the basic Kindle and was ready for the “new , fancy one!” Which means, I’ll have to learn the ins and outs of the new technology. Mom is a fearless techno warrior as long as I can tell her how to turn it on and make it go!

    I love Chanel. I read 25 books last year and saw The Help, what a great movie. I have been using Regenerist for the past couple of years and absolutely love the whole line. As for Greek Yogurt less calories and great taste.

    I’m always trying new fragrances, BUT, I always come back to Chanel for special occasions and always have a large bottle of cologne on hand and a small bottle of parfum sitting right next to it. “The Help”? Give me a break! “Midnight in Paris” is a far better movie, as is the last of the Harry Potter’s…”The Help” appeals to those who need feel good to assuage their unconscious guilt. And vitamins help the inner body…all other surface stuff is commentary.

      I haven’t noticed a change in the formula and I’ve been using Chanel No.5 since 1980. But then again maybe you are more sensitive to a subtle change than me? Chanel No.5 is my basic go to fragrance, I love it, although I do mix up my scents just for fun or mood.

Over a thousand women responded, and we’ve got their top four picks in each category. Now it’s a run-off: the number 1 winner in each group is up to you.”

    I don’t have an IPhone or IPad so those would top my list. I love Chanel perfume so that would rank third. I’ve read all the books (yes, even The Bible) and seen all the movies and while I enjoyed them all I don’t need to own them (except The Bible which I have already). The Brazilian Facial Peel would be fourth because I have never tried any peels and who knows- it might get rid of some of my uneven skin tones and fine wrinkle lines. My last choice would be gluten free foods because I have been diagnosed with severe gluten intolerance and have discovered lots of creative ways to eat carbohydrates-wheat free but always use some more suggestions.

    It appears the classic items are the winners. Some things never go out of style, Chanel, a good book, and healthy food.
    Any of the above are worth my vote!
