Ms. Cool Needs A Favor

Ms Cool has been a long time reader and commenter on the site and has a little favor to ask. It seems that one of her photos was published in the November 30, 2009 issue of Life & Style Magazine. Yes, the one with the Kardashians on the cover. Unfortunately, Ms. Cool didn't know it was going to be published and didn't buy any copies of the magazine. After raiding doctor's and dentist's offices across the land she still has not located any. So, if you happen to have one sitting around and are finished looking at it, kindly leave a comment in the comments and I'm sure Ms. Cool will be in touch.

Hey Ms. Cool,

If you go to Life&Styles website to the FAQ section it says you can order back issues for $5US.

Write to:

Life & Style Weekly
Back Issue Dept
270 Sylvan Avenue
Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632

that is, if you can source out a freebie!

or you can always steal it from the local library LOL

Enty - thank you so much for posting my plea. That is so kind of you!

I will pay to ship the magazine if anyone has it. I will also look into the Back Issue Department that empryrios so kindly dug up for me.

Thank you so much.

We probably get one at my office. I'll check around for it. I'll let Ent know via email if I find it. Where are you based? LA?

thats awesome! what was the pic?

Ms Cool said...

I'm in Wisconsin. The picture was of Rosebud Salve from Rosebud Perfume Co. If someone scores me the magazine, I'll be happy to send them some Rosebud in return.

My email:

Ms. Cool,

Stupid question to ask what is Rosebud Salve and what is it for?

von said...

Rosebud Salve is lip balm. Smith's make an incredible one (they have it at Sephora among other places), you get a big metal tin of it for $6 and it works like a dream. I love it!

Ms Cool said...


Rosebud Salve is a do-it-all salve that has been around for over 100 years. Many people use it for just a lip balm but there are many other cosmetic uses as documented in this eBay guide I wrote a few years back:


If anyone is interested in their products, I do sell it and will be opening my eBay store for the holidays tomorrow. I don't mean to promote my business here - just wanted to answer your question.

Its a great product but it isn't organic. I hope this answers your question!

Ms Cool said...

Beth - Dr GF Smith is the founder of Rosebud Salve. Rosebud is actually called "Smith's Rosebud." Rosebud Perfume Company is run by his great-niece and the business has stayed in the family for these 100 years.

Thanks everybody for the info. Maybe I should try it since vaseline is not doing the job it should be doing anymore.

Hah that's hilarious b/c I just smeared some on my lips. I wipe it right onto my lips, rather than dipping my finger in and people look at me like I'm nuts. *Love this product!

*Marisa has not been paid to endorse this product. Although she would for a lifetime supply.

Pookie said...

JRD said...

Smith's Minted Rose is awesome for lips!

Angie said...

better than Chapstick! I will say that it has other uses too, but we aren't here to talk about that.

Unknown said...

I love Rosebud Salve.
I'm sure I have it, but I can't remember the cover.
I will look for it, please email me:
musesx9@bellsouth.net I will send it out Thursday if I still have it.

Katja said...

Congrats Ms. Cool! If you don't have a yes buy tomorrow I will call around.

Ms Cool said...

No confirmed copies yet but a couple possibilities. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help. Thank you so much!

Ms Cool said...

I doubt anyone is following this anymore but I've posted a picture of a scan of my photo. I don't have a copy yet but Rosebud Perfume sent me the scan.


FC said...

Ms. Cool, I finally got my issue - it came late due to me moving and that is why I hadn't posted yet. I can mail to you. I will email you today.

Ms Cool said...

I have 3 issues coming now. Thank you everyone! What a great, supportive site. Thank you, Enty, for issuing my plea. I appreciate everyone who went out of their way to help for such a minor thing.
