Sensitive yet useful...Vagina hygiene:)

I know vagina issues are awkward to talk about but I have found myself wanting to ask other girls how they take care of themselves because I have never heard anyone talk about that apart from my mother and last summer I had to encourage my little sister to wash that place well when she is having a wash and she started to ask me "bare questions"...lol....but yeah,I like how this woman addresses it and deals with the subject gracefully so I thought I would share...I'm here for women as much as I am here for men:)...so watch the video people and get some tips...:)

Our lives are the only BIBLE some people will ever read or the only CHRIST they will ever see and experience

This was shared on someone's facebook and I wanted to share it with you all....

Several years ago, a preacher from out-of-state accepted a call to a church in town. Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride a bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter too much change. As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, 'You'd better give the quarter back. It would be wrong to keep it.' Then he thought, "Oh, forget it, it's only a quarter; who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as a 'gift from God' and keep quiet." When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, and then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, 'Here, you gave me too much change.' The driver, with a smile, replied, 'Aren't you the new preacher in town?' 'Yes' he replied. 'Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I'll see you at church later.'

When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said, 'Oh God, I almost sold your Son for a quarter.'
Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Christians, and will put us to the test! Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself 'Christian.' Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. I'm glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder, and I chose to forward it to you. If you don't pass this on to anybody, nothing bad will happen; but, if you do, you would have ministered to someone today.

African love

I just saw this picture and I just realised I have never seen such a normal and regular depiction of Africans in this way...there is always a bad story or negative depiction but this is just a mother and child relationship that has been captured so well...God Bless whoever took this picture...it has opened my eyes.

Fake tans are apparently very harmful...be careful girls

I have been coming accross feeds that suggest that Fake tans are as bad as lying in the sun if not worse...They can apparently cause defects in children and cancer(that is no news).
I'm just concerned for girls eventhough I see why girls would wanna use it because it creates a very lovely look and its better than getting sun burn or lying in a tan booth but its not safe anymore girls so stay away from it(friendly advice)
Here's a link

Review:Mac Pro Longwear Concealer:NW50

Okay,so I have been using this concealer for 3months now and I have to admit,it is really impressive.
I am not dependent on make up but it is one of those products that are necessary for any MUA'S kit or even for general day to day use by any woman.It works really well.
I cant fault it apart from the fact that I do not know exactly what it contains but the buzz was realllllll.
Now,my skin type is combination but I am more on the oily side and for the first time,a Mac artist on the counter actually recommended and sold me the right product.I just thought it deserves a mention purely because it works well and has good coverage.
I am practically vouching for this product so jump on it if you have the same skin type as me and can afford to lose £13.50 to Mac(now £14.50)...Damn,prices are increasing everywhere)...here is a link


I used it this morning and you cant even tell...so sheer yet brilliant coverage
