Care for a membership with Amazon?

They’re not just a shipping resource for online shopping anymore, but they are competing directly with the best online shopping and shipping experiences. Not to mention, they’re doing other things like offering Amazon photos, which is just some Cloud space that you can use to store files like photos and videos and anything else that you need space for. Online Cloud space is also a really valuable resource, and I think it’s really interesting that Amazon is adding this to their portfolio. Not to mention, Amazon Prime just purchased Whole Foods. By purchasing Whole Foods, they are now the owners of the best, most highly rated, most respected grocery store chain in the entire United States of America. To think of how this will affect their American operations is really interesting. And from here, it is also interesting to think about how this will end up impacting their Canadian operations, because so far, they seem to end up implementing most of their ideas to Canada after having tried them in the United States. So, how much is Amazon Prime Canada? How much does Amazon Prime Canada cost? In my opinion, it doesn’t cost enough. With the amount that they’re offering, if you’re a student, and you’re paying less than $4 a month for these amazing Services, about three 75 a month or something like that, I think that at that point, you can really recognize that you’re getting an extremely good value for your dollar.

Totally cool snaps

In my opinion, the fact that people are pretentious and exclusive about this kind of thing really throws me off. Trust me, I am not one to be a hoarder of information, and that is what creates division within communities. If you are so threatened by the fact that somebody with a camera phone and a photo filter  might be able to take a better picture than you, maybe the solution isn’t to complain about it waste your energy doing that, but maybe the solution is to get better at taking photos, or to pick up your ambition in some other way. Or, just to specialize and be the best at what you are. If you’ve never had success as a photographer, and now you’re complaining about the fact that people with cell phones are having more success than you, the problem isn’t that person in their cell phone, the problem is you. I have been a professional photographer, and I will still use a good cell phone photo with a photo filter every now and then, because they look just as good a lot of the time. No, some of them don’t capture as much specific detail as some lenses on a good camera, but that’s not the point of a cell phone camera. This point of the cell phone cameras to be comprehensive and Broad, and be able to catch anything decently, rather than specialized. I love photography, I love apps that allow me to engagement photography at a higher level, whether that’s through providing photo filters or providing a market for me to sell my Snaps as potential stock photos. Whatever it is, I appreciate it, and I appreciate the accessibility that these apps and products are bringing, making photography a practice that more and more people can learn to appreciate and perform.

 

 

Gift giving for cancer patients

 

 

I found the best source for Gifts for Cancer Patients. I know that this sounds a little bit odd, and it would have sounded odd to me too, but I hope that you will take the time to listen to me and understand where I’m coming from.  I think that once we learn to understand the point of view that I have over been working on understanding over the last few months, I think that our society can progressed to a point where we see the True Value in gift-giving, and learn to deal with people who are in different circumstances than us in a way that is actually in pathetic, even though we’ve never experienced it before. The things that we’ve all been down, and we’ve all felt short on things like tranquility and kindness and empathy and protection, we’ve all been there, as far as I know, we have all felt a lack of these very important things which allow peace of mind and happiness and allow us to live our lives in a way that is actually meaningful and not based in fear. Yes, in my opinion, this is a common thing that most people have experience, and, when we get sick, or when somebody gets very ill, and it’s hard to know how to cross that bridge into a meaningful dialogue, let alone purchasing a gift or something along those lines.

SMASHBOX CONTOUR STICK TRIO

Contouring. Is it getting old since strobing is the new hype?

I guess it is, yet I still love to contour when I’m putting a full face on now and then. I have to admit that what I’m about to review has been in my make up stash for quite a few months now. Yet I’d still like to share with you the benefits of contouring with cream pencils.

So I went to Douglas a few months ago and saw that Smashbox has this contour kit with three pencils: a highlighter, a bronzer and a contour pencil. Apply the hightlighting pencil on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and on your brow bone. Below the highlighter you should apply the bronzing pencil and then apply your contour.

Get a damp Beautyblender and dab the product on your skin. Don’t forget to blend ladies! Just so that it all smoothes out nicely and there are no stripes on your face.

I’ve swatched the pencils so you can get an impression of the colors.

What I love about the pencils is that you can’t get too much product on your face like that sometimes happens when you’re using powder. With the powdery formula I tend to use too much product. Then there’s contour all over my face. Especially on the places I don’t want it to be!

You can order the Smashbox kit here.

I’d say, just give it a try and maybe this is the solution when you’re coping with the same problem as I do when using powdered contour.

Have a great day my loves!

 

MOST WANTED NL SHOPPING NIGHT IN ROTTERDAM

For the first time I decided to participate on this give away for an invitation. What kind of invitation?

The well-known Annic van Wonderen (click) who can be described as a succesful powerwoman who published her own book and has her own business (I Love Fashion News), tweeted about it and I just gave it a try. A few days later I received an e-mail that I was selected and invited on the Most Wanted Shopping Night from the Most Wanted Boutique in Rotterdam at June 26th.

Mostwantednl.nl is a boutique in Rotterdam with the coolest collection. I saw a black chain bag I really wanted to my hands on. I got one!

I’ve also bought a black draped top to wear with my skinny jeans. On this particular shopping night we’d receive a 20% discount on the whole collection. Hairdresser Rob Peetoom was there to style your hair and do your make up.

Annic van Wonderen was there all night to give styling advice to those who needed it. She’s very nice and gave some good tips to the customers who asked.

I really had a great night!
