New Puppy

I recently got a puppy as an early Christmas gift.  He is a siberian husky and is all white with brown eyes.  I love him so much already.  He was born on October 10th, 2015 so he is about 10 weeks old at this point.  I decided to name him Trooper.  I had a list of tons of names that I picked from.  For example I had: Mayday, Aspen, Storm, Oakley, Remi, King, and so much more.  I plan to make him an emotional support and therapy dog too.  Within the next few weeks he will be starting puppy classes for socialization and basic obedience.  Once, he is older maybe around 5 months or so I want to do agility or protection training with him.  I am sure he will enjoy either for learning and exercise.  Below I have Pictures of him….soon I will have a youtube video for him.

Day to Night Makeup

For the day time makeup keep it simple.  You will want to prep your skin with a primer then a long wearing foundation.  Also, a concealer if you feel the need for it.  Fill in your eyebrows with a soft pencil with feathery strokes.  You will want to leave the eyelids plain, just coat your lashes with mascara.  For the cheeks put a matte bronzer from your temples along your cheekbones.  Take your favorite blush and apply to the apples of your cheeks and blend into the bronzer.  The lips you will want something with subtle color.  Now you are all done for the day look.

For the night time makeup you will add on to from the day time look.  Now, you will apply eye shadow and create a brown smokey eye.  If you wish to have a stronger contour then add more bronzer.  Only thing left now is to add a lipstick on and gloss on top of it.

Down below I have some products listed that I like.

1920’s Fashion

Fashion in this time was really different from now.  The dresses for women were at mid calf length and very loose all around.  They did not hug anywhere on the body.  There was a lot to textures, patterns, and colors.  As for coats and jackets had trims of fur on it, to show wealth.  Hats were a statement piece needed for everything you wore.  Girls would have a bobbed or cropped haircut.  Wearing a pleated skirt with a loose belted jumper and a cardigan became the everyday look for women.  For shoes they had small heels that would lace or button up and was closed toe.  Almost nothing is the same from today’s fashion, but it is constantly changing.

Beauty Tips

Here are some tips to help out.

  • Before you throw away products that are in plastic tubes, cut them open and get what is left.  You can use a small container to put the remaining product.
  • Ever wonder how to clean eye shadows?  Pour rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and then spray the eye shadows with it.  Take a cotton ball and wipe clean.
  • To clean false lashes all you need is a spoolie brush and rubbing alcohol.  Carefully run the spoolie through the lashes to get off old glue and makeup.  This way it wont ruin the lashes and they last longer.
  • You can store lipsticks, nail polish, and perfumes in the refrigerator to make them last a little longer.
  • Clean makeup brushes by using baby shampoo and olive oil.  Put the brush under the running water and put olive oil then baby shampoo.  Rinse thoroughly and lay them flat to dry off.
