Venezuela, a Country in Despair

A long line of shoppers waited in front of the central Madeirense super market in Guarenas, Venezuela. In a report by Aserne, the shoppers had been there since sunrise anticipating the arrival of a truck containing poultry. One shopper complained that she had not been able to buy chicken in more than a month. Once there, the failure of the driver to unload the poultry before leaving became the catalyst that created widespread anger and violence.
Venezuelans have been living with a shortage of food and essential items for nearly three years. Venezuela is rich in oil, but due to the drop in oil prices; It’s management of available resources appear to have grown out of control. The storage of necessary items such as food, electricity and water has enraged and deepen the feeling of despair that many of the people of Venezuela experience each day.

There have been many protests in Venezuela says expert Manuel Gonzalez, seeking to shorten the time that Nicolas Maduro has left as President. Many Venezuelan feel that the economic crisis that exists there is because of his inefficient management of the country.

 

Bright Lips And Bold Lashes Rock Coachella Music Festival

Each spring Coachella is packed with music lovers and celebrities alike who come together to dance, drink, and sport the newest trends for the upcoming season. This year many celebrities rocked the pastel matte lip and bold lashes while leaving their eyes downplayed with simple eyeliner and nude shadow. Some dusted gold along their cheeks to stay within the trend of highlighting but for the most part Coachella goers kept their lips bright and their lashes heavy. With the simplistic pallet for spring make-up having clear skin is a must and many celebrities have been turning to Asian skin care products for new ways to eliminate blemishes and wrinkles.
Wendy Huang, an Australian beauty blogger, has created a name for herself among online beauty gurus with her own spin on western and Asian beauty. What started as a hobby has now grown into her own little empire with millions of views on Youtube and hordes of fans she lovingly calls her “family” on every one of her videos. Her blog The Wonderful World of Wengie is now Australia’s number one Asian beauty channel and her Youtube channel has over a million subscribers. Her charismatic and goofy charm has kept her fans engaged in her videos where she shares make-up tips, reviews western and Asian beauty products, gives life advice, and tests out each product before giving it a full review.
Growing up Wendy saw little to no representation in both Australian and American media and because of her features she was left to figure out how to apply make-up on her own. This didn’t defer her love of beauty and skin care, in fact it even pushed her to make her blog to help other women of Asian decent explore the world of beauty. She offers honest reviews and samples each product from face masks to lip stain for her viewers and shares where to purchase the products. Now Wendy travels the world to meet other beauty gurus and shares her experiences through her second channel The Life of Wengie which she saves for advice, personal experiences, and travel vlogs.

Venezuela Fighting Energy Crisis With Two Day Work Week

Officials in Venezuela have decided to go down to a two day work week in an effort to combat the ever growing energy crisis the country has been dealing with for months.
According to an article posted on the Independent news site, public workers now have a 5 day weekend. Government workers were already on a 4 day work week as the government declared Friday a non working day for the months of April and May.

The vice President of the country made an announcement in late April that all civil servants will only be working on Mondays and Tuesdays. This measure will last at least two weeks and will affect over two million state employees.

Daily four hour electricity blackouts have also been initiated by the socialist administration. Hospital staff and other important workers are still working normal days.

As to be expected by expert David Osio, many Venezuelans were in disbelief when they heard this news. Many pointed out how much money the government is losing by paying them to stay home.

The President of the county is blaming the drought for the current crisis. Others however claim its due to government mismanagement.

President Maduro has urged all citizens to do everything they can to conserve energy. In a post on DavidOsio.com, he even had the nerve to suggest women use their hairdryers less often as he believes women look better when they let their hair dry naturally.

Athleisure and Fabletics are Redefining Fashion

Imagine being able to go from running errands to the gym without needing to change first. Athleisure, a growing trend in the world of fashion, is making this possible without having to look out of place. Leggings that go just as well with boots as they do with sneakers, and dresses that can be worn for some light hiking as well as out to lunch with friends are making this trend one that is sure to stick around for a while.

Fabletics, a subscription based clothing company, has always been centered around physical fitness. They were introduced in 2013 as a sub-section of JustFab. The V.I.P. subscription option allows customers to pay a low monthly fee to receive news and discounts on all the current trends. Fabletics released its own line of athleisure this past April. In an article from Bustle.com, the author gushed about the amazing new dresses Fabletics has to offer. They are made from the same fabrics as the active wear on so customers know they will be just as comfortable as they are stylish.

The co-founder of Fabletics, actress Kate Hudson, seems to be making it her mission to use the clothing line to spread the importance of physical fitness. Living an active lifestyle on corp.justfab.com is something that Hudson personally enjoys and she wants to make sure her fans can follow her lead. Fabletics offers top of the line active wear that does not cost an arm and a leg. The materials used are a much higher quality than others in the same price range. Now, with the new options from the athleisure line, there is even more to choose from. Going to class in a stylish pair of yoga pants is bound to be more common than the skinny jeans that are the casual go to of quite a few people.

We Had To Try NutriMost After Seeing This Story

My husband and I watched this really inspiring story of a doctor on https://nutrimost.com/members/weightloss/ who lost a lot of weight on NutriMost, and that is when we decided we should give it a try. It is hard to ignore a story that has someone doing something so great for themselves, and it made it even better that it was a doctor who was telling the story. A doctor’s endorsement on Facebook goes a long way with us, and we decided that we were going to see what the doctor had to say.

We looked into NutriMost more on their website, and we started learning about how it helps you eat better. We had a lot of things we needed to do to start eating better, and we followed the instructions on nutrimost.com that showed us what to cut out of our diets. We started using the meal plan from NutriMost, and we were feeling a lot better. The food was really different from what we were used to eating, but it all made sense because we had heard this from a doctor before. We just trusted Nutrimost that this doctor’s story was genuine, and we were right to do so.

The point of the plan of NutriMost in our minds was to help us get healthy, and we started losing weight without really trying. We made sure that we were not checking too often, and we were losing so much that we had to go out and get new clothes. The plan on https://nutrimost.com/members/find-a-doctor/ also helped us learn how much we were going to have to exercise. We were fitting that in along with everything else, and it really changed how we feel about food. We do not eat the things we used to eat, and we do not drink the things we used to drink. We had our whole lives changed by NutriMost, and we look better than ever.

Lime Crime Makeup – The Freedom To Be You

Doe Deere, the founder of Lime Crime Cosmetics, was once quoted as saying, “I make makeup for girls and boys like me, who express themselves unapologetically. Lime Crime is freedom to be you.”

If you have ever seen the Lime Crime line of cosmetics, you know this statement is very true. Lime Crime is all about freedom of expression and doing what feels right to you. Its about going against the grain and not being afraid to make your own rules.

Doe Deere is a self proclaimed unicorn. That means she doesn’t care about fitting in. And that’s exactly what her makeup line is all about. Lime Crime cosmetics is for those who play by their own rules and aren’t afraid to be different.

Deere launched Lime Crime cosmetics in 2008 after being unable to find a makeup line that would work with the clothes she was sewing and selling on eBay. In 2009 the infamous Unicorn Lipsticks were introduced to the world and as the saying goes, the rest is history.

Since then Lime Crime Cosmetics has continued to gain more and more popularity year after year. They even have super stars such as Missy Elliot wearing their line of lipsticks. They are the first cosmetics line to have the courage to launch radical lip colors most companies would stay away from.

One thing that really makes Lime Crime Cosmetics stand out is their commitment to creating their products in a cruelty free fashion. Many of their products are considered vegan meaning no animals were used in the creation process. In 2012 the company reformulated all of their products so that they meet the vegan standard.
