Product Review Time!!! Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads

Fabulous… If I had to describe the Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads in a single word – Fabulous would be the one! I was down to that ugly period where you have pretty much a chipped out blob, in the middle of your¬†fingers…To create a difficult mess to remove, I painted over the original pink with a teal/blue color. The pads were quite wet and easily removed all ten fingers without too much effort. The true bonus is, they sent two more! Now my toes are also polish free, and I have to say, my nails feel good and the smell is pleasant after sitting for a while. If you are sensitive to strong smells, do be mindful, they are pretty strong right out of the package and during use (my chihuahua boy covered his nose lol), but it went away pretty quickly. Overall I’m sold on the ease of use and less materials needing purchase on my end! Seriously, a remover in a single pad, for all 10 fingers – easy, peasy – no mess or big pile of cotton balls and no spilled bottle of remover to ruin the tabletop! I put mine back in the fol pouch it came in and dropped it in the trash. I received this product complimentary to TRY, REVIEW & SHARE!!! #SoCutex #HealthyNails #Influenster...

Jack Daniel’s Sues Popcorn Sutton

  So this story hits really close to home – literally about 30 miles away out in Lynchburg, TN. First let me explain why the local news report not only caught my eye, but after seeing what the suit is about really makes me think Mr. Sutton’s boys need to rethink their bottling strategy.¬† I can’t drink alcohol anymore. Don’t get me figured wrong though, I had many, many nights in my personal history that included being completely obliterated (many nights with Jack Daniels, though my whiskey of choice was always Crown Royal). My medical health includes a diet that completely abstains the intake of any alcohol period, it makes me violently ill and I’ve found I enjoy¬†not getting sick as much as I can. However introduce hubby – Jack Daniel’s is his drink of choice. He never would choose a different type if given an option, and is a Jack Daniel’s fan down to his soul. So much so, that when he turned 30, I contacted the Jack Daniel’s Distillery and asked if they would allow him (full bio on his love for Jack included in the letter) to put their ‘brand’ on his calf in the form of a tattoo. We got a letter back from a Mr. Roger Breashears in the corporate office at Lynchburg. It was a wonderful letter that thanked hubby for being a loyal fan, of course invited us back (as of that point, I think hubby’s number of visits was 13 since moving to Tennessee almost 8 years ago) and had my hubby named a squire! A squire is a very honored club to be a part of (Wikipedia actually mentions a squire! We still to this day, love visiting the Distillery and we take the tour every single time. ūüôā My sister, who is a tattoo artist and hubby worked together to make the perfect tattoo and placement and on his birthday he got the letter, the squire invitation and I knocked that year out of the park! The Tenneessean¬†covers the basics of the suit, but let me illustrate a point. For over a century Jack Daniels has adopted a unique a recognizable use of bottles, labels and other marketing so that it is known by simple look. The bottles¬†have changed over the lengthy history of the spirit but for the better part of 100+ years, Jack Daniel’s has been in it’s uniquely and known bottle. You can find out about every bit of the Jack Daniel’s legacy by visiting their website. The long and the short of it is, in my humble opinion is that the boys over at Popcorn Sutton‘s outfit are trying to trick or possibly win over those who buy their brand by the look of the bottle. I think that if they have a good product (this is an untasted theory on my behalf) then they should do just as Mr. Jack did all those years ago and seek out packaging that fits the image of their beloved Popcorn. The story from their side of the camp is that Ol’ Popcorn said his stuff was just too good to be in a mason jar – just a little tip to these unimaginative folks, white lightning or ‘shine has always been in mason jars or gallon jugs. I think the classier of the two is the mason jar; it is backwoods and for the common man in it’s history. Try starting there – better yet – revamp the mason jar to a newer better version if you have to change it. Leave Mr. Jack’s bottle and labeling for him – that’s not a ridiculous request. Be your own unique thing. I tried finding a website for Popcorn Sutton’s Moonshine and found that there is not an actual website. What do you...

Katy Perry’s ROAR Contest Was Brilliant

Katy Perry announced several weeks ago a Lip-Dub contest for high schools students across the United States and territories. They got thousands of videos and I have to say I watched the entire time. I loved watching the five finalists and felt some hometown pride in a way when Lakewood High School from Lakewood,CO won. I was born and raised down the road a ways in Colorado Springs, and yes, I was biased the entire time hoping they would win. Their video was awesome, if you didn’t see it check it out here! And an interesting point ¬†to the video – they filmed it following, what I think was the last round of massive flooding that hit the area just to the south (where I grew up); best part – the entire school worked together and filmed it all in a single go. Kudos guys! And Katy Perry – I will admit (I’m not a teen anymore lol) I’ve followed your music since the “I Kissed A Girl” phase and find you to be an artist who is growing not only in sound and art itself but also as a wonderful marketing direction and I see you moving to bigger and better things. And to GMA (I’m hooked, I watch every morning and DVR in case I miss it by sleeping lol) thanks again for bringing a contest to motivate kids to work together – you guys Rock! DirectLyrics has covered the entire morning’s event of the concert at Lakewood High School in Colorado for your viewing pleasure.¬† Don’t forget to ROAR before you start your day, it may just change your attitude...
