lava tu cama

When is the last time you washed your sheets?  How about your comforter?  Pillows?  Maybe you aren’t sleeping so well because your bed is filthy.

You will sleep better with clean sheets.  Once a week is the bare minimum.  We could get into a lengthy discussion about dust mites and bed bugs here, but basically a weekly wash should keep you out of ferret bed territory. Select white sheets.  Nothing invites a beautiful night’s sleep like a pristine, crisp, white bed.  Super hot water, bleach, detergent, booster, softner, these are the key ingredients to optimal results.

Cleanliness is Godliness bitches.

It’s all about white, white, white for spring 2011. 

Jill Stuart presented one of the strongest collections of the season.

Tuesday’s Tarot

Don’t be so literal, just because the Death card appears doesn’t mean you’re dying.  Brace yourself for change, however, because Death represents out with le vieux, in with le nouveau.  Thirteenth of the Major Arcana, Scorpios, this one is all you.   The Grim Reaper rolls in on his white horse and levels the field.  Rich, poor, old, young, death is the great equalizer.  Just like the Phoenix, from destruction, out of the ash, rebirth follows.  Prepare to transform.

Kinerase C8 Peptide Intensive Treatment: Days 15-21

By day fifteen, a major purge begins and weird impurities emerge from the cheeks and jaw line.  This creates a serious temptation to extract, but self-control is the order of the day.  A hen-pecked look just won’t do for an event this Friday.

It should go without saying that the goal here is perfect skin, no make-up.  This seems like a meaningful possibility with Kinerase C8 — if you keep your hands off your face.  My skin looks clearer each day.On day seventeen, met up with a friend who described my face as “glowy.”  One more night of treatment must eliminate any remaining imperfections.Today is the big day and skin is looking pretty great, but four days (or 20) was barely enough time to make that happen.  After sweating whether or not C8 has the power to uncover the freshness, it is obvious that there just isn’t enough resurfacing action in this product when used alone.After stumbling in inebriated, it is a wonder the treatment even made it on last night.  As a result of its application, my face looks better than I feel.No longer able to resist, my own lack of will power caused reaggravation.  This episode confirmed my previous suspicions that Kinerase C8 Intensive Treatment does not make an ideal spot treatment.After three weeks, skin still feels and looks better immediately after application, but cumulative results are negligible to non-existent.  Next week will conclude the experiment, and perhaps the true test of Kinerase will be whether it is missed when it is gone.

Retire the saccharine florals in favor of graphic and tribal.

Sunday with Milla Jovovich


The reality of most double albums is usually there is only enough great material for one excellent record, but artists (or record companies) often add unnecessary filler, basically to take up space and time.  Most would agree one great album is superior to two mediocre ones.  Since Robyn’s Body Talk 1 & 2 were released months apart, some might argue that it isn’t a double album.  If you want to debate semantics, fine, (it may even be one of three).  The criticism still applies; both these albums contain lackluster tracks compared to Robyn’s brilliant eponymous record from 2005.  The Body Talks contain some good music, but lyrically, this second one especially, feels like a trip down 90’s hip-hop nostalgia lane – and not in a good way.Body Talk Pt. 2 doesn’t suck, but Robyn may want to reconsider her new strategy of rushing to release tracks and return to a practice of exercising selectivity.
