    Am I registered or not?

    Please forgive me if this has already been posted - I tried to search thoroughly first... I have been away from the site for quite some time, but was delighted to find my login and password still worked! However my avatar does not appear when I post. If I click the phrase "Tim'ema's Avatar"...

    Has anyone heard of this? I stumbled on this during my internet browsing and it is all over the place! My skin has never been great - blackheads are a big problem - and nothing works. I'm on day two of the oil cleansing method and I'm actually seeing a difference! Especially the enflamed red...

    Nail Art as part of Costume?(image heavy!)

    Madeline's thread on Nail Care got me thinking... I bellydance at home, so I don't yet "perform", however as a nail artist, I realize many of the designs I've done would work well with costumes. Does anyone incorporate nail art into their costumes? I'm very curious! :) AT

    Is there an archive?

    Please pardon me if I'm simply blind and didn't see it..... I am given to understand from reading the forum that this is a "reborn" forum after some kind of nasty business. Is the "good" material from the old forum archived somewhere or was it unsalvagable? :) AT

    Still fresh as a peach, I'm afraid!

    Brand, brand new to BD! Been dancing for two whole days now! I KNOW! Pretty darn impressive! LOL! Belly is something I was always too shy to do, but with recent encouragement from my sweetie - I'm finally doing it! Very broke, so I'm learning at home right now, but ...such JOY! I will have...
