Sometimes make up can be a bit of a bore when it comes to colors and styles. Everything seems to be kept in "normal" rudimentary colors. Lipsticks are usually shades of red and never stray very far from this spectrum. When it comes to eye shadows we're assigned certain colors on our eye color. Of course, these unspoken rules are not legally binding so it's fair to wear green eye shadow when you have blue eyes. The point is that there doesn't seem to be much wiggle room for creativity.
Doe Deere, the creator of Lime Crime, is the answer to the prayers of anyone who has wanted to use make up as a statement. Standing out from the crowd takes a lot of guts but once you see the Lime Crime collection you'll be all too excited to rebel. Lime Crime offers day glo yellow lipsticks paired with pastel mint eye liner. Add a floral chic sundress and you are the embodiment of Spring. Deere first created these bright unusual colors of make up products for herself. When she was out doing day to day errands she would receive numerous compliments and people were desperate to know where she bought her lilac colored lipstick.
This is when Lime Crime was born. Deere started out slowly but today she is one of the most successful start up entrepreneurs around. Her make up line is vegan friendly, hyper pigmented, and affordable. These are the top three key points important to today's consumer and Deere has provided Jane Shopper with what they're looking for. However, there are a few people who enjoy the classic reds and browns. Deere has what they like as well but her fire truck red lipstick is ethically sound compared to other name brands.
Whether you would like to push open the box of creativity and expand your make up horizons or are just looking for a non toxic make up brand then Lime Crime should become your new favorite. They have anyone and everyone's needs met and at an affordable price it is definitely worth a shot.

Brazil as a country can be imperatively referred to as a home of literary culture. They have proved their ability to maneuver the literary world combining it with their unique country filled with a variety of religions, races and cultures to come up with masterpiece publications with audiences all over the world. Through literature and artistic authors, they are sure to give their audiences an experience like no other as they are drowned in awe and absolute amusement. Their only drawback that is being worked on today is the language through which their writings are done (Portuguese) which may not be understood by many who aren’t native to their country. However, there has been an evolution in technology that has come up with Softwares and systems to translate print or air the literature through audio books and has been keen to target the talented authors of Brazil.
Notable is also the influence of literary veterans who’ve existed since the inception of literature in the 1500’s. Their influence can still be felt to date as they provided the platform and foothold for the current generation authors. Their poetic nature and romanticism are attributed to their predecessors all though it’s also important to appreciate the modern touch the current generation has added to the Brazilian literature. It is this combination that makes their work so unique, intriguing and gratifying. Authors like Machado de Assis was self-made, and the only education he had was from borrowed books, this made him particularly original and sensational back in his time. The contemporary authors of today in Brazil are influenced mainly by information flow on the internet, facts, science-fiction and morbidity in relation to their culture from which they heavily borrow.
Authors in Brazil have their works well received in South America which has seen to their recognition in celebrated magazines like Granta and even in literary giants like the Amazon in the U.S. Jaime Garcia Dias is one of such authors who were accepted in the White Crane, an organization for talented authors in South America. This award has given him great insight into literature and self-discovery through exposure to the outside world and interaction with others of his kind. He has over 20 published books inclusive of ‘Fell from Heaven’ which went viral on production. He has won several literary awards as being the leading literature writer in Brazil and beyond. He also worked at Carioca literature Academy as vice-president following his establishment of a new system of literature education.
Daniel Galera, Vanessa Barbara, and Chico Mattoso are among the young Brazilian authors (novelists) recognized whose works have been translated into English to reach a wider audience in appreciation of their impeccable skill. Brazil is undoubtedly evolving as authors are stepping out to the light while some yet to be born.

In recent years, the term "foodie" has sprung up more and more. This is with the crowd ordering small meals, taking pictures of the food with their cell phones and attempting to dissect every element of the food. However, while this goes on, the individuals visiting the restaurant ultimately are still hungry upon leaving and end up at a fast food joint on the way home. That truly is one of the major problems with such a "foodie" experience. It is also why Haidar Barbouti is looking to change all of this around. He wants to take over the food industry in Houston and help bring it back to its roots, where customers are receiving full meals that not only a delicious and satisfying, but also leave them full upon leaving the restaurant.
Some of the local chefs in the Houston area all about artistic integrity. That is fine and it is how it should be. There is nothing wrong with beautiful food. However, when a customer spends a rather large amount of money on food, they should be satisfied with what they ate. When Haidar Barbouti sat down to give an interview, he recalled a visit back to Europe where he had enjoyed dinner in open-air restaurants which he enjoyed. However, he completely disliked all of the wine and tapa bars. In his mind, a tapas are nothing more than just leftovers, because it isn't a full meal, yet it is suppose to be ordered and passed around with the other individuals at the table.
Enjoying a meal and the company of others at the table doesn't need to revolve around passing around small sampler platters that include one or two little tapas so that once someone tastes the food, the food is gone and there is no chance of having more without ordering another sampler. Hair decided to open his own restaurant in order to combat this craze in Houston. He wanted to provide customers with what they grew up eating, where they would go to a grandparent's house and their grandmother always cooked everything better than anyone else out there. It seems as if this time has passed and not it is impossible to locate a solid cooked meal.
This is exactly why Haidar doesn't want to do another tapas restaurant or follow the trend of all the "foodie" individuals out there. It shouldn't be right to have someone leave a restaurant only to still be hungry. It doesn't matter how beautiful it looks while enjoying it. After all, it is gong to end up looking the same as everything else consumed, so it might as well taste good and come with a solid perdition. At the Up Restaurant, Haidar provides a classy, chick, white-table cloth restaurant that allows guests to dine and enjoy the same kind of delicious, rich food their grandparents would make whenever they stopped by. So, for those who are sick of the foodie craze as well, Haidar Barbouti is right there with them.

Miss Honduras and her sister have been found dead after going missing. Their bodies were discovered in a small village and there have been people arrested. One of the people who has been taken into custody is the boyfriend of the beauty queen's sister. These two girls were last seen at a party, and their bodies were found along the edge of a river. This story was passed along to me by friend Susan McGalla.
It seems like the person who was trying to dispose of the bodies was possible trying to get them in the water, but this is unclear at the moment. There hasn't been a motive about why these two beautiful girls were killed. It takes a heartless person to want to kill someone in the first place, and when you leave the body in the middle of nowhere, it shows that the person has no remorse at all for the act that was committed.

Chipotle Mexican Grill is being sued for not paying their employees overtime. They claim the managers are being paid bonuses that encourage them to cheat them out of hours and the time clock is set up to clock them out at a pre-determined time. Employees allege that they have to stay and clean up after they've been clocked out.
There are many claims similar to this in fast food and other low paying jobs. If a corporation sets a clock to clock out an employee at a pre-determined time, that is a clear ethics violation. It may not be illegal, but it is unethical. The employee is faced with leaving a job unfinished.
To make matters worse, the managers threaten them with less hours or termination if they refuse or complain. That's clearly unethical if Igor's analysis is correct on the part of the manager. Manager's want better pay and they get it with performance bonuses. Those performance bonuses are mostly based on controlling food costs and labor.
The corporation and management clearly have the upper hand. It's difficult to get employees to act together to protest or refuse to let these sort of things happen. They need their jobs and are afraid of losing them. Fortunately, there are lawyers and class action suits. Unions may have lost some teeth, but lawyers still have a vicious bite.

Lawmakers met Friday to discuss the U.S. response to the Ebola epidemic. Seven people have been treated for Ebola in the U.S. in the past 30-days. Despite the serious threat Ebola poses to the U.S., a recent survey of 3,000 nurses revealed that 85% of them have not received adequate training on treating patients with Ebola. Two of the nurses who treated the first Ebola patient in the U.S. contracted the disease. Deborah Burger, Co-President of the National Nurses Union, urged lawmakers to publish mandatory guidelines detailing the equipment nurses must wear when treating an Ebola patient.
The military’s unusually short quarantine requirements for soldiers deployed to West Africa were also discussed. Although the CDC recommends individuals exposed to Ebola be quarantined for 21 days, troops deployed to fight the epidemic in West Africa could be brought back to the U.S. after only 10 days of quarantine. “Is there any reason why we wouldn't just want to use a 21-day waiting period in West Africa before we bring people back to the United States?” Pennsylvania Rep. Matt Cartwright asked.
After robust questioning from Rep. Cartwright and other lawmakers about the lax quarantine requirements Defense Department officials at the hearing promised to speak with military leaders about increasing the quarantine time for troops returning from West Africa. Finally, lawmakers and public health officials slammed the CDC for assuring Americans that the U.S. was prepared to contain the Ebola virus when it first entered the country. “Never reassure the public when you don’t know. Never do that because when you do that, you damage your credibility,” Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly said. Need to set up a Google Alert to see what's going on with Ebola. Pretty scare when you consider what could happen if it ever goes wild in this country. I'll keep checking the news on my FreedomPop LTE, that's for sure
