Revlon photoready review


So today i wanted to tell you guys about the foundation that i have been using for about the past 2 weeks and it is the Revlon PhotoReady foundation. What i love about this foundation is, it doesn’t smell bad,its very easy to blend, it is not as thick as a Revlon Colorstay, and the best part is the pump. So much more sanitary. Revlon photoready foundation has medium to full coverage. It is definitely build able coverage without looking cakey. It is very light weight when you put it on. But I’m sad to say that, it makes me break out uncontrollably.I really, really want to stay with this product. And I have, despite the problems, but my face just continued to get worse. In the end, I told myself to break up with PhotoReady and move on. So I did. The shimmers on my face aren’t something I really mind (in fact, something I like about the way it transfers onto my skin) but I do think it was this shimmers that clogged my pores. Totally not the one for me!.

A Trip to Washington Park Zoo


Author: Dorsey Velasquez

After watching the current News report I was very careful to set my home security alarm from www.Securitychoice.com/ before leaving home to take the GrandKids to Portland's Washington Park Zoo. It was so much fun watching the little guys excitement as they went to each exhibit. Of course each one was the “Best” one, even though all the one's before were said to be “Best” also.

I had not told them our objective was to view the new baby elephant which had not been out to be viewed until this week. When we walked into the elephant house and they discovered the baby, there was so much excitement I had to remind them to quiet down before they upset Mama elephant. After watching Baby nurse under Mama's front legs, when they had expected it to be under the back legs, they decided they really were in the “know”, and could not wait to get home to tell everyone how much knowledge they now possessed.

After the baby elephant everything else paled in importance, even though there were other babies and they loved feeding the birds from their hands in the Avery. Holding the nectar cups while the nectar feeders ate from them was exciting too, but nothing was as good as seeing a baby elephant nurse.

Annoyed Enough


I have to say something, and I hope you hear me out. People who are seeking attention are really getting on my nerves! And why is that? I DON’T KNOW. There’s a woman on Facebook who keeps posting on her wall about nonsense for others or for me especially. It’s just so annoying with all her boastfulness. I have no problem seeing others post messages, but a TON from the same person and all she talks about is herself and how great she is. Now tell me what person wouldn’t get annoyed with that? If you’re trying to get some attention please don’t do it that way! I’m sure it’s not just me that’s annoyed with her. I won’t write the name of this person because I don’t want her to get embarrassed. But, I hope this person will read this and realize that it’s her I speak about.

I tried to ignore this individual and pretend that she didn’t exist, but I couldn’t ignore it anymore. I have better things to do than to be annoyed by one individual. Get a life woman and keep your boastfulness to yourself.

New lake house


Guest post written by Arlene Henderson

Even though it's too late to enjoy it this year, we just signed the papers to buy a lake house of our own. I grew up on a lake so it's been a dream of mine for a long time to have a lake home to go to on vacation and on the weekends.

But before we get it ready for next summer we have a whole lot of renovating that we need to do. It isn't in great shop and was a rental property for the past decade or so, so it hasnt' really been taken care of. But it's at a great spot so we just had to take it.

Before we did anything else, we wanted to make sure and fix the outside of it before the weather got too cold. We can always come when the weather's cold to work on stuff in teh rooms inside.

We had some sears home vinyl siding installed a few weeks ago and the house already looks so much better. It was kind of an eyesore before and I definitely don't think that's the case now.

In the spring we're planning on building a dock for our boat and fishing.

A Game With the Guys

Written by my friend Judson Kelly

College football is one of the best spectator sports around. With athletes working towards being the best, there's always excitement on and off the field. The amazing thing about college football is that the athletes are really allowed to shine. While some players are out to become pros, there are some who just want to lay a good hit. A good hit is the reason why me and my friends go.

I was a football player in high school, so me and my old team mates often like to watch the game. When I attended A&M College Station they used to visit on occasion, and we'd go watch a game together. It didn't matter who won or lost honestly (I wasn't the biggest when it came to team spirit) we just loved the game. We love watching a good game unfold, with all the crazy events that can happen; from big hits, to turnovers, to crazy plays.

We loved the atmosphere, the screaming fans, and all the excitement that went along with the game, and for waiting for cheap hot dogs to be announced over the loudspeakers.

Now that I'm going to a school without a football team, we aren't able to make as many games, so now we meet up at my house to watch our favorite teams play on directv from www.expertsatellite.com/direct-tv/direct-tv-satellite-dish-illinois.html, and yell at the screen.
