  40. One foundation does not fit all. Your skin is unique; so spend the time to get a foundation that doesn’t look like you just smudged your face with paint.

  1. If you like this article gowns with sleeves and want to see more wedding gowns, please visit us on our website here:
    flower girl dresses. Outfits with this neckline are ideal for you if you have a petite body.
    The silk crepe de chine material moves beautifully while the button-lined back and small
    train create a fabulous finish.


  2. If I rolled downhill inside a 6 month old Porta Potty from Tijuana and stepped out to see a tub full of hand sanitizer I’d walk 20 miles in the opposite direction to the nearest creek.


  3. If i had to choose between using hand sanitizer before eating a bowl of boiling hot soup with a sterilized spoon or touching every surface in a truck stop bathroom before eating a bowl of cereal with my bare hands I’d have a handful of Cinnamon Toast Crunch every time.


  4. Half of this stuff would make a good tip for anyone regardless of gender.
    43 isn’t always a good idea though. If food is the only way you try to make yourself feel better, you’re going to rely on comfort food too much if you’re not careful.

  7. #4: use a good quality lip balm instead. #19: If your boyfriend doesn’t like your pet, choose your pet. Trust me.


  8. I agree with everything except 44. Hand sanitizer a are bad, they strip your good bacteria and leave you more vulnerable to infection. Chlorine too. After chlorine always wash off and apply coconut oil!


    • This is so true. I am a nurse and if you are never exposed to bacteria and germs then you can never build up an immunity to them.


      • Hand sanitizer is ok for purposes like a quick clean. Like you touched something sticky germ-x helps. Sneeze in your hands, use it to clean your hands not for you, but so other people wont get sick. This is why so many of my friends kids are getting sick these days. We always had to germ-x our hands before we picked them up. now those kids are constantly sick and never able to leave the house. One of my friends didn’t follow that trend and has healthy wonderful kids. Cleaning is a good thing, but over cleaning is a bad thing.
