I know that one of my biggest weekly obstacles to tackle is getting the endless number of grocery bags from my trunk into the house without cutting the circulation off in my arms or severing my wrists.  The “One Trip Grip Grocery Bag Holder“, I do believe, may be the end all to my problem!!  The Bag Holder, created by Infmetry, is only $5 and can hold weights up to 50lbs.  Pop the button and release your bags – it’s that easy!  Now if they would just send one to try out before i tackle the grocery store tomorrow!!




Style Edition

Keyword: Oscars, Emma Stone

Did you check out her winged liner?! Ugh…love it!  And her beautifully, swept bun pulled off her look.  Emma Stone is a winner in my book!

 

I am obsessed with Rooney Mara’s lips.  They are the perfect shade of matte red. I love the simplicity of the eye make-up. It really draws you to her blue/green eyes.

 

Berenice Bejo was rockin’ a braid and she is now my best friend! Haha Seriously though, loved this style. Braids are so intricate, and then the back is just so simple. It compliments itself nicely.

 

Hey, Gwyneth Paltrow…is that a bob, or a pony tail? She pulled an optical illusion here. From the front it looks as if she’s got a sexy, sleek bob. From the back, it’s a simple, classic pony! And, her earthy make-up really accents her natural beauty! PS- Loved her cape!

Ottawa’s Neil kicks it in the net, and the NHL Execs rule it a goal

Keywords: chris neil, henrik lundqvist, kicked goal, game 6

Another day, another blown call by the Refs and the entire NHL Executive Staff.  If you didn’t catch the Ranger/Senators Game 6 last night(sucks for you), NHL douche Chris Neil pushed Lundqvist out of the crease and then made a clear kicking motion towards the puck, swiping it into the net with 38.4 seconds remaining in the 3rd.   A ton of speculation on whether or not his skate touched the puck was all over the web 10 seconds after it happened last night. Let’s take a look.

2:20-2:24- Clearing Lundqvist from the crease using his stick as a goddamn broom handle.

2:23-  Kicking motion.

2:24  His skate also makes contact with the stick of Henrik Lundqvist, preventing him from smothering it up for the whistle.

2:25- Contact is made with that puck. That puck picks up speed as soon as his skate swipes over it.

This isn’t even the Ranger fan in me talking-  this is Hockey 101 right here.  A goal as big as this cannot be allowed in the NHL Playoffs, it just can’t happen.   If there was even a little bit of doubt, I would be open minded, but everything is right there on tape.  Tape don’t lie.    Awful.




The popular cut might be more dangerous than you think

Keywords: lazy eye, justin bieber, emo haircut

Word on the street is, the ‘Emo cut’ can lead to a case of lazy eye, this according to ibtimes.com.  An Optometrist out of Australia has come forward with some information that may have some of todays youth making their way over to their local barber shop today.  The article refers to Justin Bieber several times, as an example of an Emo cut; except, Bieber never had an Emo cut.

 

Optometrist Andrew Hogan said Emo-style haircuts that dangle over one eye can cause lazy eye by preventing the nerve pathway from the eye to the brain from developing properly. The damage is more detrimental to the younger generations whose eyes are still in the developmental phase of growth.

 

 

Everything in Mr. Hogans statement all seems to make sense, except for the Justin Bieber part.  I can’t say I’m the biggest Bieber fan, but I can say that I’ve seen the kids haircuts plastered all over every major news outlet thousands upon thousands of times,  and Bieber didn’t have an emo haircut.   An Emo haircut is much more distinct and dramatic, with a stretch of hair intentionally grown past the location of the eye socket.

 

 

These are Emo haircuts- not what Bieber was wearing when he first came onto the scene.   Needless to say, the article makes an alarming point.  While it is known to effect the younger development years of our human growth, it is still found to be problematic in the later stages of life as well.

 

I understand and respect that we all have the right to express ourselves however we want- unfortunately when we are 10-20 years old we feel as if we are invincible, and that warnings like these do not apply to us.  But rest assured, as we enter our late twenties,  we quickly realize how any harm we might have caused to our bodies growing up can catch up to you very quickly.

 

As displayed in the picture above of one of the best bands to ever live, a haircut is a sense of expression, an outlet for us to separate ourselves from the rest of the pack, whether it be an Emo cut, blonde tips, a mohawk, crew cut, extensions etc. We are all unique in our own ways, and however we choose to alter our image is entirely up to that individual.  Unfortunately for those with the Emo-style cuts,  I don’t think a simple article like this will change their mind much.




Sorry about yesterday everyone

Keyword: hospital, eye problem, allergic

Yesterday I spent a good part of my morning/afternoon at the hospital having my eye checked.  Here’s what happened…

 

A few days ago my eye felt like it was bruised.  I thought maybe it was a sty from wearing all the makeup and lashes for my show, but nothing ever came out…it just kept feeling like I was punched in the face.  Soon after I began turning very red on the side of my nose and across the top of my cheek bone.

 

Today an eye doctor friend told me he would check it out. Apparently the redness was from a reaction I had from the makeup I wore for the show. Just as I had originally suspected, I have the start of a sty…but it’s on the inside of the top lid.  I caught it in time that it shouldn’t get to the point of actually swelling my lid to much…phew.

While at the doctors he wanted to make sure there was nothing wrong with the eye ball so he dilated my pupil.  Do you know what it is like to drive home with one pupil dilated? lol  Needless to say, I got home in time to post a few articles, but I couldn’t look at my computer screen.  But I am back now and very glad there is nothing more wrong with my face and my eye!!!

 

Thank you to all who reached out to make sure I was feeling better!  It’s so nice to hear how much my readers/fans care about me!
