I come across a lot of information in the course of a day, most of it barely touching my mind. However, from time to time, I come across something that makes me stop and take a closer look. Yesterday was one of those times. A conference of Native American physicians have been meeting in Portland this week. Modern medicine's approach has fractured the holistic healing practices of Native Americans, who have the worst health problems in the nation. On some level I've known that for years. What I did not know was "the life expectancy for Native Americans is 63 years compared with 74 for the general population. In South Dakota, the median age of death is 81 for the general population; 58 for Native Americans". "The statistical differences continue: The death rate among Native Americans from diabetes is three times as high as the general population's; six times as high from alcohol; more than two times as high from accidents and 60 percent higher from suicide". The statement that stopped me in my tracks was this one: "We need to address the underlying wounded spirits, the loss of culture, the loss of land and how that affects people's spirits".
It's been quite some time since I last blogged. A little over three months now looking at the date of the last post. I just wanted to take a break I guess. Have been very busy at work, not feeling like blogging when I get home, so therefore I just stopped. I'm feeling the need to reconnect with all my blogging friends. I've missed you girls/guys and miss the support I was getting from all of you. And believe me I need some asskickin again. Life just gets so busy sometimes that I am the last person I take care of. I am tired at the end of day, too tired to get up early and move my butt, and too busy during the day at work to take time to go out for a walk. And I'm feeling the effects of this lack of otivation/movement. I need to be accountable to someone other than me and you lucky folks are going to be it! Will I keep this blog updated? Well that is the plan, whether it is daily, weekly or monthly, I have no idea. Could just be when the need drives me. I've got some catching up to do with all of you! Hope you are all doing fantastic!
Hi Everyone! If you are like me then I give up with my hair. One day it will look amazing the next I have strands that are going here there and everywhere. I had given up on having natural beach like waves as my hair either looks frizzy, doesn't keep the wave/curl or the curlers just wont give me a pretty curl. I was lucky enough to be sent Umberto Gianninis new Curl Friends Hold Me Hairspray. I had been thinking for sometime that I need to master the curl hairstyle as I have my Dads wedding approaching and Id love to have natural looking curls which last all day. The spray comes in a stunning hot pink can and it smells gorgeous! So fresh and girly, it really is yummy! I started off by using a heat protectant spray followed by my straighteners to curl my hair. If I'm honest it took me a while however I was determined to curl all of my hair just to see how good the Hold Me hairspray was. After I curled my hair I used Umberto Gianninis Backcomb in a Bottle on the roots of the crown of my head just to get a bit of volume.
I then scrunched my curls and brushed them lightly to get a loose wave rather than a tight curl. I then sprayed the Hold Me hairspray. The spray didn't make my hair feel like straw. It is a really flexible hairspray so you can spray it whilst your hair is down and if you decide to have an up do instead you can just put it up without having to keep brushing the spray out. The wave lasted all night and I still had a hint of loose curls in the morning so it definitely has staying power! I do have one bad thing to say about it... because it smells so good you just want to keep spraying and spraying! You can pick this up from your local boots along with the other Umberto Giannini products from this line. This Umberto Giannini Curl Friends Hold Me Hairspray costs $5 for a 200ml bottle. Id definitely recommend this for everyday use as its so flexible it doesn't weigh your hair down and you forget that you've got hairspray on until you check yourself out in the mirror and your hair is still looking as perfect as it did when you left your house!

I'll be the first to admit I cannot do the smoky eye effect to save my life. I look more like uncle fester from the adams family than I do Cheryl Cole. I have numerous palettes with the colours for the smoky eye look and despite watching millions of youtube video tutorials I am still hopeless... but then I saw in more magazine Max Factors Smoky Eye Effect Eyeshadow. (I purposely put the lighter shade on black so you could see the colour better). As soon as I had the stick in my hands I knew that I would be able to do the smoky eye effect. The best way to describe it is imagine a colouring crayon but with one end dark and the other light. (Before blending the colours in with eachother). You start by putting the light shade over the lid (I took it 3/4 away across the lid, from the inner corner outwards) then you apply the darker shade from about half way and then blend with your little finger.
How easy is that?! You can make it as dramatic as you want, I have used this for a day look smoky eye and a going out sexy smoky eye. Its creamy so it is super easy to blend in you dont even need a brush you can use your little finger like I did. It also has staying power it lasts all day which I think is pretty good considering most creamy eyeshadows seem to disappear during the day. You can buy this from most drugstores like Boots or Superdrug. I believe they are around $7 and you can pick from sixshades if you dont think that the one Ive got is suitable for you. I think this one is called Onyx but dont quote me I just know its black and white as I ripped the colour label off it by mistake! I definitely think this is a must have product! I am so happy that they have brought this out it is simply fool proof and perfect for a sexy smoky eye whilst on the go!
