I'm lucky to have mature fruit trees growing in my yard, but the last of my pears have been harvested, my plums have been stewed and frozen, and I realize I'm just two holidays away from winter. I'm dreaming of warm, savory dishes, preferably made with fresh herbs, which means it's time to bring the garden indoors. I like to stick to a few easy-to-grow basics like the ones on the list below, which offers a hierarchy of the easiest herbs to grow indoors organized by difficulty.
Okay, so her movies might not all be winners (did anyone actually see Rumor Has It?), but no one can deny that Jennifer Aniston's red-carpet looks are award-worthy--girlfriend always looks amazing, albeit largely the same at every event. Hey, she knows what works for her.

One of the most important parts of life are the friendships you have.

I suspect that a large number of women out there have an exaggerated idea about the size of their pores--pore dysmorphia, if you will. They look at their faces and see large, gaping holes where microscopic dots should be, and so they slather their skin with every pore-refining cream available, desperate to shrink them into obscurity. If you ask any woman, regardless of skin type, whether she'd prefer her pores to look smaller, the answer is most likely going to be yes. Otherwise, there wouldn't be nearly as many pore-minimizing products on the market. But is it actually possible to permanently reduce their size?
