Ahhh that was a great introduction to my current post if I do say so myself!
If you’re on my Holiday list you likely got yourself a zombie Christmas card from ThinkGeek this year. I don’t recommend purchasing these as they are expensive and come in packs of four only.
Which is why in honor of Christmas and the Holiday season I do so recommend my very favorite Etsy seller for your Christmas card needs (or any seasonal card need), tinaseamonster.
Tina does some incredibly epic homemade cards that normally have something to do with zombies and the zombie plague. Her shop is one of my first discoveries on Etsy many a year ago and remains a fond favorite to this day. She does a range of various t-shirts, stickers, and totes (I absolutely love her “Panic Buying for the Apocalypse” tote which I have two of) but I always go back year after year after year for her fabulous cards for various Holidays particularly Christmas ones!
These are some of her Holiday cards. She sells them in variety packs for as little as $12 for a box of 10 with envelopes.
If you’re a bit of a geek or just a fan of zombies she’s an essential Etsy shop you won’t want to miss!
I’ve been doing some sponsored posts for Proactiv the past few weeks and I got a few samples of their products to check out and I honestly didn’t think I’d like any of them but so far it’s proved a very good experience!
I recently had a big old pimple on my chin so I reached for Proactiv Advanced Blemish Treatment and had instant high school flash backs. I remember using Clearasil to attack pimples and I also remember that my skin would come out of it flaking off. It was SO incredibly drying.
I was a little hesitant to try Proactiv’s version of pimple zapper as my skin is dry enough so def don’t need to add fuel to the fire so to speak. But, hey, it was either this or slap a Hello Kitty Band Aid on it and say I scratched myself or something lame like that. You know, where you convince you and the people around you that the kawaii bandage on your face isn’t really hiding an ugly pimple, it’s actually hiding a bad bruise or scrap from that time you went skydiving in Hawaii…something elaborate like that makes a plaster on your face sound really fancy.
But for the sake of this post I did indeed smear a little drop of this on my pimple. The formula is a gel-like cream that feels comfortable on my face and has no fragrance. The best part? No dryness AT all after use. I was shocked to say the least but thankfully enough it treated that pimple in two days and did it without drying my face out.
All I can say is WINNING!
I’ll keep this one in the beauty arsenal just in case any other stray spots decide to appear.
In 1969, John married Yoko and the idea of peace and loving your fellow wo(man) was forever changed. Knowing their marriage would turn into a huge media circus they decided to use that press in a positive way by proceeding to stay in bed for 7 days inviting press from all over the world to hear John preach the good word of peace.
John was shot in the back and killed in 1980. It’s sad that a man who inspired peace and love was killed in such a brutal way. I’d like to think John would be the first one to forgive the person who killed him as that’s the kind of bloke he was.
Today’s is his anniversary…so take a moment today to imagine there’s no heaven, no hell, no possessions, no countries at war with one another, nothing to kill or die for, no religion to fight about, no greed…
Remember to love your fellow brother and sister. What better time of the year to do so?
I have a theory that Wet n Wild rushed along their success a little too quickly. Last year, they came out with not only an outstanding Holiday Collection but also some very key catalog items that proved incredibly good for a lower end drugstore cosmetic brand.
This year, they made some valid attempts to top themselves but so far I’m not entirely impressed with the LE offerings particularly ones they released for the Holidays.
Let’s take a look at the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eye Kit for Holiday 2011.
