Great read about the recent mass shooting in the United States.

The author is a junior in high school. He is very well spoken.  I have hope for the United States when I come across such bright young people.  They are our future.

Why can’t we be more like the UK, Canada or Australia?

Jack is spot on! I know I have had enough of the never ending mass shootings here in the United States.  People, please get out and vote this year and get these selfish bastard politicians out of office!

 

Guns make very small men feel very big. The whole world must know by now that on St. Valentines day a nineteen years old youth called Nicholas Cruz carried out his very own cowardly massacre at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida. After about 7 minutes of shooting, 17 people lay dead, […]

Merle Norman Brush Cleansing Bar Review

Wow!  Merle Norman Brush Cleansing Bar is awesome!  My friend gave this to me for my birthday yesterday.  I was so excited to try it, I used it last night. Dang! This is some great stuff!

Here is the description from Merle Norman’s website:

We’ve raised the bar when it comes to cleaning makeup brushes. This simple, fast and convenient alternative to liquid cleansers safely cleans natural and synthetic brushes. Silicone pad provides a deep cleaning surface. Light Papaya and Green Coconut scent. Travel-friendly.

The cost is $18.75 USD for 1.1 ounces.  I couldn’t wait to try it, as I have many make up brushes that I don’t clean as often as I should.  Regular brush cleansing will not only lengthen the life of your brushes, but get rid of bacteria that can cause break outs.

I have used Japonesque Solid brush cleaner in the past, but it pales in comparison to the Merle Norman brush cleaner.   The silicone pad that comes with it makes a huge difference.  You simply wet your brush, swipe on the soap them swipe on the silicone pad, rinse then your are done.

If you are not familiar with Merle Norman Cosmetics, it’s an American cosmetic company that has been around for over 87 years.  Each studio is independently owned and operated. The products are made in the United States and are cruelty free. They have a wide variety of skin care and make up products available. Their “Try before you buy” philosophy has been a calling card since day one. I’ve worked as a beauty advisor at Merle Norman in the past, and can personally vouch for the quality of their products.  You will receive personalized service that is not possible at department stores or other specialty retailers.

I couldn’t believe how much make up came out of my blush brush.  Check out the YouTube video on how to use this great brush cleaner.

I will be purchasing the product again.

Thanks for stopping by.

No parade for you jackass!

 You think of all of the homeless veterans in the U.S., and this draft dodging jackass wants a parade?? Give me an effing break!

 

I awakened in a dark mood this morning, made even darker when I came downstairs, fired up the baby Dell, and sat down with my first cup of coffee of the day, only two read two news stories about the continuing saga of idiocy that defines the Oval Office these days … Pomp and Circumstance […]

I miss you Mr. Obama

Best president in my lifetime!

“I will never forget that the only reason I’m standing here today is because somebody, somewhere stood up when it was risky. Stood up when it was hard. Stood up when it wasn’t popular. And because that somebody stood, a few more stood up. And then a few thousand stood up. And then a few […]
