Got myself a bunch of new lipsticks, but I only had time to try two of them on.
NYX Round Lipstick: Paparazzi (second to the right on first photo)
Most people think that NYX has a consistency that's too soft. Given that it melts easily, that doesn't really help when living in a tropical country. I like it though, prefer it to the heavy lipstick feel.
Milani in Tangerine (Rightmost on first photo)
This shade is more orange than the photo shows. It also has this grown up perfume smell. Nice cheap drugs... read more »
Angus was very good today. Yesterday his trainer rode him and worked on his taking hold of the outside rein and running crazy move. She thought it was more of an obstinace problem than a health problem and made it Continue reading read more »
What is great about riding is that you know a bad day is going to be followed by a good one. Today Cadence wasnt quite so heavy in the reins. We worked on keeping him round during transitions. I still Continue reading read more »

Round Earth, Open SkyKirpal Gordon Giant Steps PressFreeport, NY185 pgs $14.95ISBN: 978-0 615-47673-5The memory of the nights I had drunk blood and eaten flesh under the full moon became firmly lodged in me: a compulsion, a menace always waiting there, a grief and a fare too ancient, a sorrow bred into the essence of the race, a lodestone too old for any individual to fight away from, or even to know and place accurately. First off, let me say that I really enjoy novels that I cannot find in my local bo... read more »
If you’re a mom, then you know how stressful this time of the year can get. We’re the ones who prepare everything during Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dinner. That means shopping for food and gifts as well. I love the holiday season but OMG, it is tiring! I am so swamped with both [...] read more »
I've always been fond of turkey as a rule. I hear so many people whinge and complain that they aren't much for it because it's dry - to be honest i think they must be doing something wrong as i've always found turkey to be quite succulent. I suppose the key to this is keeping it covered, moist and well basted during cooking. Nobody wants a dry turkey.This recipe is posted at the request of Beau - who desires a "family sized, festive Christmas Turkey Pie". I agree with him - there are too many turkey and ... read more »

This dish comprises a combination of latin flavours, but in supposition its an ideal dish for hunters to cook in the field, or would have been back in the day. The flavours aren't complex, and complement each other perfectly. Also if you shop around for ingredients you can produce this dish extremely cheaply. Substitutions such as using thigh meat instead of breast, and using generic cream cheese help alot to cut costs, as do using standard red onions instead of shallots.... read more »

Well ladies and gentlemen our new school year is just around the corner! We are all very excited over here about it. We take the year-round approach because it fits our family best. It allows for breaks to be planned around The Spouse’s schedule and doesn’t produce large gaps in our schooling. I’ve found these large gaps make returning to our regular schedule very difficult. Our longest break is a month; which is when we plan family vacations. Since we school year-round with our start date in the summer,... read more »
