If you are bored and disgusted with politics and don’t bother to vote you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and ya arching mtv on primary day. By all means stay home if you want but don’t bullshit your self that your not voting: you either vote by voting or not voting. -David foster Wallace .

Kelly review: sometimes it’s good to splurge. .
I had a great week at work and decided to treat myself. At first glance review: I love reading product reviews. I will leave a full review in the up coming weeks when I find time but here’s an initial review. .
@tartecosmetics Amazonian clay full coverage foundation: I love that it’s full coverage but does not feel oily or heavy! It feels luxurious yet light weight (I rarely wear a liquid foundation but this feels like a gift on the skin) it’s water based with vitamin e and there are 40 shades to choose from! My only concern is I chose the wrong shade( the store I went to was a mess!) it’s also paraben, pthalate, triclosan, gluten and sodium lauryl free! And it shouldn’t clog your pores:) it’s also cruelty free and I love that the spf is zinc and titanium dioxide only .
I also purchased @juicebeauty stem cellular cc cream with broad spectrum spf (its zinc only with zero nano particles!) I mainly purchased this because I’ve been dying to try it. It’s certified organic! Which is huge for a beauty product. It ironically goes on heavier than the liquid foundation but it seems like it wold be great for a day in the sun. Upon first glance I was worried it might break me out but it seems to have good reviews and i finally took the plunge and am excited to try it. .
I also got the photo pigments flawless finishing powder in translucent to set the cc cream and give it more of a matte look. Upon first glance it seems to be a light dust that is silicone, talk gluten and paraben free and synthetic fragrance free. .
@tartecosmetics high performance eye and cheek powder ( shade your money maker) naturals. 6 vibrant shades that are heavily pigmented and go on smooth and tend to lean towards purples and mauves with gold undertones yet all come off as a good neutral .
I got the @realtechniques blend and blue finish brush I have a lot of eco friendly brushes at home and usually stick with those but I didn’t have a dense head brush and I’m excited to see how that goes.. I like the handle on the brush and the oval shaped head and it’s very soft to the touch
And free gifts that I will review ;)once I’ve used everything
My heart brakes for all the tragedies in the world and the people living in fear and those filled with hate based off fear.Not to mention all the littler tragedies that seem to plague us daily, even the ones deep within us, so when I saw this post about my grandmother it helped me. As every sentiment still rings true today. Last night I was flooded with memories of my grandfather on my fathers side and all his memories of what it was to grow up feeling like the world saw you as " less than" simply based on the color of his skin.His recounts always brought me to my knees and helped form who I am.What also flooded my mind was how no injustice is right and how quickly we are to take sides or put political spins on things to fit what comforts us.I want to live in a world where we can all be free to be who we are and believe what we want and to be kind to fellow souls and to not be so quick to judge when we don't understand something, but rather to try and find understanding.I dnt have the answers and I think so many ppl feel a loss. But I remember a comment I made to two of my friends last night on a hike, no matter your experience we are all survivors because we are here. Tomorrow my grandmother will be 102 the things her eyes have seen and her heart felt, I can only imagine. But my take away continues to be she has a good attitude, is kind and doesn't give up.I try my best daily to have those traits and sometimes admittedly still fall short.I love you.You dnt have fb but you have this letter about you.And to every single person experiencing heart brake in any form my heart although cracked itself goes out to you, no family deserves to loose a loved one and no person deserves to feel such turmoil.I wish there was a way to educate and help people before the chaos.Sometimes words are just words.But violence is never the answer. I think if each person tried to find their best self and not what others think we would be better off and that is easier said than done.But look at her 102 tomorrow.There is hope if you look for it and this is coming from someone who searches for that hope regularly. Wishing peace in all forms to all ppl. Plz remember we have more in common ⬇️
