The Beauty of Color: The Ultimate Beauty Guide for Skin of Color
The Beauty of Color: The Ultimate Beauty Guide for Skin of Color
von Iman
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 19,67

5.0 von 5 Sternen Star Studded Makeup Book, 13. Mai 2015
I have had the book Iman The Beauty of Color: The Ultimate Beauty Guide For Skin of Color by Iman in my wishlist for quite some time before purchasing it. One of the reasons has to do with my own interest to get some makeup ideas. My decision was also influenced after I watched the music video for Remember The Time by Michael Jackson because of the air of self-confidence she radiated in the music video (the same self- confidence vibe that is projected through many of her online/media interviews). This caught my attention because she probably has challenging days just like anybody else. However, the self-confidence she frequently projects through her own interviews reminds me of one of the personal goals I have to aim for higher self-confidence regardless of any life tests I may encounter. Yes, just a few years ago, I tilted towards the happiness aspiration spectrum However, I have ironically been feeling better (even in the midst of unexpected events in my life) since I have instead refocused my aim towards higher self-confidence. Anyhow, this makeup book features women from various skin complexion spectrums (models by the names of Oluchi,Ming, Brenda, and Mariana) and various celebrities (Padma Lakshmi, Kimora Lee Simmons,Liya Kebede, Alicia Keys and many more famous people featured). She also shows different techniques on how to apply eye shadow such as on page 95, plus much more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Positive Memories of My Late Adoptive Mother, 13. Mai 2015
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Country Songs That Open the Heart (Audio CD)
I admit that I finally purchased and listened to Chicken Soup For The Country Soul (A few months ago) as a way of honoring my late adoptive mother who enjoyed country music and told me that she enjoyed getting this cd from me. I admit that I give thanks for her adopting me even to this day because she took me in and accepted me as her own daughter despite being aware of my history baggage and knowing that I was given up for adoption by my biological grandmother (I say this hurt-free when it comes to this knowledge, but just fully aware of the risk that my adoptive mother and adoptive father were probably taking with eventually caring and claiming me as their own daughter).Anyhow, less than a few months before my adoptive mother passed away, I was still stationed in Japan and was calling her to see how she was doing. At the time she was doing fine and shared with me how she enjoyed this Chicken Soup For The Country Soul cd and how one of the songs moved her to tears. I could not get it out of her which music it was, but I must say that many of the songs on this cd are enjoyable to listen to. There is a wide range of country songs on this set from many of today’s well-known country artists (Alabama, Dolly Parton, George Jones, Dwight Yoakam, Linda Ronstadt, Randy Travis and more artists).

Traci Lords: Underneath It All[ TRACI LORDS: UNDERNEATH IT ALL ] by Lords, Traci Elizabeth (Author ) on Jun-29-2004 Paperback
von Traci Elizabeth Lords
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brave Baring Of Her Soul, 13. Mai 2015
Underneath It All by Traci Lords is an honest and soul baring account on how the author’s childhood shaped her adult years. She charts her early life as a young girl in the Midwest who naturally has dreams of a better life and is greatly influenced to want more as a result of living part of her life near a university in Ohio. There are a wide range of information pieces that she recalls in her memoir (such as how her biological parents met. the heart-wrenching rape incident that she suffered as a child, how she first came into the racier side of modeling, the roles that both her biological mother and stepfather played in her life). She also creatively tied in her career progression with her love life as she recalled the men who had an influence in some of her professional projects. One of my favorite parts of the book was when she recalled her joy at being cast in the Cry-Baby movie and being cast alongside multiple famous celebrities attached to the film. I can easily understand how the traumatic rape experiences she suffered in her early years indirectly contributed towards her world view on how her own sensuality and life operated. Without providing too many book spoilers from Traci Lord’s book, I say this because I myself was traumatized from a rape experience inflicted on me around the age of 5-6 years old orchestrated by my late biological mother for the benefit of who was either one of her lovers and/or clients (I’m not sure because my late adoptive mother (around the time I was 11-13 years old) admitted to me that my late biological mother worked as a prostitute). Anyhow, Lords provides subtle hints on how what happened to her indirectly contributed to the way she felt about the areas of love and sensuality and her brave journey towards seeking therapy. There is so much more in this book written by a woman who poured much of her artistic soul towards telling an honest and unadulterated story.

How to Attract Good Luck: And Make the Most of It in Your Daily Life (Tarcher Success Classics)

  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 14,28

5.0 von 5 Sternen Both For Those Already Blessed With Good Luck And/Or Those Who Want To Simply Increase Their Luck, 30. April 2015
I preface this book review by admitting that I already consider myself a woman naturally blessed with good luck. However, I still purchase books pertaining to good luck due to my spiritual thirst to increase knowledge around making the best of life. Additionally, I admit to doing some off the wall and/or unconventional things to improve my life. For instance, less than 8 weeks ago, I decided to let go of reading my own horoscopes as a subconscious way to reinforce the idea that I’m in charge of my destiny and that things are only getting better in my life. However, I allow myself to look at other horoscopes as ideas for my goal setting, spiritual aspirations, life advice ideas etc. I purchased and use the ideas in How To Attract Good Luck And Make The Most Of It In Your Daily Life by A.H.Z. Carr with a similar mindset, concepts and insights for enriching my life and adding to my knowledge/wisdom goals. Generosity and Luck (starts on page 49), Turning points (starts on page 77), the intuitive approach to luck (starts on page 185), and how increased energy produces luck (starts on page 215) are some of the subject arena covered in the How To Attract Luck book. The back part of the book jacket lists A.H.Z. Carr as having lived from 1902-1971. Additionally, Carr is listed to have been a consulting economist for several corporations during his lifetime, a consultant to the Truman presidency, an economic adviser to the Roosevelt adviser, and is credited for writings in Harper’s, The Saturday Evening Post, and Reader’s Digest.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Portable and Versatile, 30. April 2015
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This Kindle Fire HDX 7", HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 32 GB (Previous Generation 3rd) is an unexpected and entertaining gift from my mother in law. I humbly say unexpected because I was not previously expecting to purchase a kindle for myself until summer 2016 at the earliest. The entertaining part is because this kindle allows me to more frequently enjoy the features of my Amazon prime membership (such as listening to music offered to prime members, movies etc), listening to pandora radio and/or iheartradio when relaxing in my room and/or when it may be too cumbersome to lug my laptop computer (such as when I’m washing the dishes and/or doing other chores around my apartment). Last, but not least, this kindle allows me to read and purchase books at discounted prices. Overall, I’m obviously thankful to have been gifted with this Kindle and would recommend it to others.


Moon Virginia: Including Washington DC (Moon Handbooks)
Moon Virginia: Including Washington DC (Moon Handbooks)
von Michaela Gaaserud
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 17,17

5.0 von 5 Sternen Both A Template For The Tourist and/or A Prospective Relocatee, 30. April 2015
Moon Virginia Including Washington D.C. by Michaela Riva Gaaserud caught my attention due to the shared agreement between my husband and I to eventually permanently settle in Virginia regardless of whether we are employed in the private sector or the government sector. However, I’m going to avoid saying more about the timeline when this would happen out of consideration for first finalizing my plans with the people in my life (such as my husband, mother-in-law other concerned people in my life etc and practical considerations (giving at least 2-3 weeks notice to employers, time needed to plan the relocation ect). I like this book because it features various parts of Virginia such as the cities in northern Virginia; Arlington, Old Town Alexandria and the nearby areas, Fairfax county, Loudon county etc. Then there are other areas covered such as Williamsburg, Hampton Roads, Newport News, Virginia Beach etc. The Alexandria Film Festival(page 102), The Lighted Boat Parade (Page 181), and The Blue Ridge Parkway (page 294) are some of the multiple features discussed in Moon Virginia Including Washington D.C.

5.0 von 5 Sternen More Than Ten Things To Like About This Movie, 30. April 2015
Suprisingly, I unexpectedly came across this dvd of 10 Things I Hate About You at my Walmart job after searching for another dvd. For some reason, I felt drawn to this movie even though I obviously graduated from high school quite some time ago (class of 2000). There are multiple celebrities attached to this film (information available online from both wiki and the Internet movie database) and the movie centers around a popular and charismatic female named Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik, I remember here from the Alex Mack episodes I watched as a teenager) who is sought after by Cameron James (Joseph Gordon Levitt) and an equally popular and wealthy student named Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan). Bianca’s sister Kat ends up getting drawn into this soap opera and is chased after a fellow student named Patrick Verona (the late acclaimed Heath Ledger) thanks to the calculated string pulling by Cameron James, his friend Michael Eckman (David Krumholtz) and Joey Donner. Gabrielle Union and Allison Janney are also some of the multiple celebrities featured in this film that I also recognized (online sources credit being the Mary Jane tv series to Union and Janney to the Masters of Sex tv series). The dvd comes with the following movie trailers; When In Rome, Extract, and 10 Things I Hate About You tv series. This dvd feature film also includes the other listed bonus features; 10 Things I Hate About You 10 Years Later, Exclusive Footage, and Filmmaker as well as Cast Audio commentary. Some of the multiple things I loved about this movie 10 Things I Hate About You; The indie rock music featured in the film that the character of Kat (Julie Stiles) is seen enjoying, the various fun songs featured in this film (Push It by Salt N Pepa, Hold Me Now song by Thompson Twins, Sexy Boy by Air etc), and a compelling quote by that Heath Ledger’s Veronica character is seen quoting in the film. The motivational and memorable quote referenced in this movie is “Don’t Let Anyone Make You Feel Like You Don’t Deserve What You Want.” I say this because I truly feel that this insightful quote can apply to various aims in a person’s life (career goals, where a person wants to live, other personal goals etc.) even though the Verona character (Heath Ledger) was actually saying this as encouragement to Cameron James . Last, but not least, the various Shakespeare references unexpectedly encouraged me to look into attending some plays/theater in the future (fortunately, I figured out how I can attend at least one play every 3-4 months at a minimum). Overall, these are some of the various reasons why I found the five dollar purchase of !0 Things I Hate About You to be a bargain for an uplifting and heartwarming movie.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stone Temples Midwest Concert, 30. April 2015
I admit that I purchased this Stone Temple pilots dvd of Stone Temple Pilots Alive In The Windy City on April 9, 2015. However, I have previously been familiar with the music of Stone Temple Pilots for quite some time due to the fact that a family member generously gifted me with the Tiny Music Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop by Stone Temple Pilots around the time I was 16 years old. Additionally, the alternative rock station I frequently listened to from the time I was around 14 until I was 19 (radio station Q101 that was based out of Chicago, Illinois until I moved away after enlisting in the U.S. navy in 2000)often played various songs by Stone Temple Pilots. I even purchased and reviewed the Thank You cd on September 13, 2009 after coming across STP greatest hits compilation in a local Orlando Florida library a couple miles from the University of Central Florida (I left the review on the Amazon UK website). Purchasing this dvd is well worth is because the band’s music harmonizes well with Scot Weiland’s vocals in the concert performance. With this said, I also enjoy music by Linkin Park and have even purchased their recent Hunting Party cd at my job over six months ago. I’m well aware I may get some unhelpful votes for this because it is not a popular sentiment. However, using the name of Stone Temple Pilots without Scott Weiland’s powerful music vocals is akin to taking Mike Shinoda or Chester Bennington out of Linkin Park and still calling them Linkin Park. Back to the dvd set, many of the classic hits by Stone Temple Pilots are included on this dvd; Vasoline, Wicked Garden, Big Empty, Sour Girl, Creep, Plush, Interstate Love Song etc. (18 songs). My favorite songs cd wise from Stone Temple Pilots are Wicked Garden, Plush, and Vaseline. The band gave their best unified performance in this dvd concert edition and I would have to say that these were some of my favorite performances concert wise even though the songs have a melancholy tune; Sour Girl, Interstate Love Song, Dead and Bloated, and Trippin On A Hole In a Paper Heart (which is also the closing song on the concert dvd). There is also a bonus feature of an interview with STP.

Herr's - HONEY CHEESE CURLS, Pack of 42 bags by Herr Foods Inc.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Honey Flavored Cheese Curls, 30. April 2015
I can’t blame others for laughing about this, but I admit to have already purchased at least six bags of Herr’s Honey cheese curls from my job even though I first spotted the 8.5 ounce bags of Herr’s Honey cheese curls at my job less than four weeks ago. The honey taste on the Herr’s cheese curls has the right amount of sweetness without being too overpowering. A coworker mentioned to me how he has enjoyed these cheese curls since he was a kid so at least I’m not the only one at my job who enjoys these Herr’s honey cheese curls.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lemon Themed Oreos, 30. April 2015
These Lemon Creme Oreos (a package of 15.25 ounces) are another find from my job. The lemon crème has a balanced hint of citrus without being too sweet. Additionally, these cookies are also good for a person in your life who likes oreos and is willing to try the different flavor spectrum of oreo cookies (I have known about oreo kids since my childhood, but I admit my husband’s predilection for oreo cookies, among some of his favorite cookies, are what have indirectly influenced me to more recently purchase some of the different flavor oreos offered).
