I’m So Glad I found Lime Crime

I’m so excited about Lime Crime that I could burst. I just found these cosmetics by doing an online search. I have a daughter who is 17 and seems to have a unique color palette all her own. I can never find her the things that she wants in the store. I was doing some research and came across Doe Deere and her vibrant coloring. I must say it’s not something that I would choose for myself as I am a brown hue kind of girl, but my daughter will love this stuff.

I did a bit of research on Ms. Deere and I liked what I saw. She reminds me of my daughter. She kind of marches to the beat of her own drum and she don’t care what other people think about her style. Her style is what makes her comfortable and helps her to feel good about herself. Many people, including my nagging mother, have tried to tell me to tone my daughter’s color scheme down. She’s been called a hippy, eccentric and all sorts of other names. I don’t want my daughter to fit into some cookie cutter mold. I want her to be unique and different and to not be afraid to express herself.

Now about this makeup line. Deere uses a great deal of glitter, which is very popular right now. I like Deere’s color palette that she uses because they’re not typical colors I can go to the drug store and find. The products are high quality too, no oils or testing on animals. She goes above and beyond to make a quality product that she is proud to stand behind. I must say I was very fascinated by Ms. Deere and the concept behind her makeup. She is not just another makeup creator, she lives for this stuff. She has always been a fashionista, but she has poured her passions into this company.

I also liked that in the many pictures you see of her, her hair is all different shades of the rainbow. She calls herself the “Queen of the Unicorns,” so why not match the nickname. She tends to be her own person and isn’t persuaded by what others think or say about her. That’s what it takes to be in any business and with that determination, I’m sure that Lime Crime will be successful.

There are only a few stores that carry this product line currently, but it can easily be purchased online. I ordered the velveteens, which is a liquid to matte lipstick. I also got some different eye products in the Beatle Juice and Starry Night color schemes. We are both so excited to see what these products are like. I know this company is bold and daring and just different.

Andy Wirth Announces Gondola for Iconic Ski Resorts

 

Andy Wirth, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, has announced a plan to bring together two iconic ski resorts- Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. In an interview with Powder Magazine, Wirth announced that Squaw Valley Ski Holdings plans on building a gondola that will link the base of both resorts. The two resorts have been under the same parent company since 2011, but this will be the first time that they are physically linked together.

According to the interview with Andy Wirth, the base-to-base gondola will operate in three parts. The gondola is to start at the bottom of Squaw Valley Resort, work its way over the mountain separating the resorts, then down to the bottom of Alpine Valley. Rumors had been circulating in the Tahoe area about the gondola plans, but now they are official. Wirth has confirmed that Troy Caldwell is on board for the project, which has been the last piece to make it a reality. Troy Caldwell is the owner of the land that separates the two resorts. The two parties reached an agreement to allow the gondola to be built.

Andy Wirth became CEO and President of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings in 2010, replacing Nancy Cushing. Wirth gained his professional experience while working for a resort in Colorado. He spent over two decades working for Steamboat Springs Resort, starting in the marketing department and ending his career with them as the chief marketing officer. Since taking over for Squaw Valley in 2010, the resort has flourished under Wirth’s leadership. In addition to building the gondola, Wirth is heavily involved in the community of Olympic Valley and is interested in bringing more jobs and clean energy to the area.

In 2013, Wirth suffered from a near-fatal accident. While skydiving in Lodi, California, Wirth missed his landing zone after the winds shifted. Instead of landing in the safety zone, he touched down into a vineyard where his arm was pierced by a fence post. Nearly 50 surgeries later, Wirth managed to retain the use of his arm.

One Life to Live: Changing Lives Every Day

For those who grew up on daytime television, One Life to Live was a huge part of their lives. This ABC soap opera aired every single weekday with a new episode, giving the fans exactly what they wanted. The show ran for more than 43 years. However in 2012, everything changed in daytime television. The networks decided to get rid of their soap operas and instead replace them with talk shows like The Chew. One Life to Live was just another casualty.

The fans loved this show, though, and were not ready to say goodbye to it. That’s why channels like Hulu and iTunes decided to turn the show into an online series. These means started airing new episodes. In 2013, though, One Life to Live couldn’t be saved any longer. It finally was canceled for good.

One Life to Live was known for a lot of things over the years. In particular, One Life to Live delved into topics that no other show would. This soap opera talked about major social issues that were going on in our world. One Life to Live also featured actors and actresses that came from all walks of life. These characters were all sorts of races and born into various social classes.

Besides this, One Life to Live also has a reputation for hiring those who were destined for stardom. Some of the actors that appeared on One Life to Live early on in their careers include Blair Underwood, Tommy Lee Jones and Ryan Phillippe. Another actress that had great success on this soap opera is Crystal Hunt, who has seen soaring popularity on Instagram as of late.

Hunt played the role of Stacy Morasco from February 2009 to February 2010. After that, she decided to leave the show to take her chances in the world of feature films. She starred in the movies The Derby Stallion and Sydney White. However, she couldn’t say no to One Life to LIve completely. Even after her time on the show, Hunt talked about on her Facebook having returned to reprise a ghostly version of her character. She only made two short appearances, though. Since then, she has opened her own high-end pet boutique in Florida, which she documents on SlideShare.

One Life to Live is a soap opera that really did change the world of daytime television as we know it. Without this series, daytime television would not be the same. Thankfully, One Life to Live lives on in the hearts of its fans forever and ever.
