Vibram = The Five Finger Shoes

I have this sudden urge (As usual I got an exercises kick at work, where I cant actually run) to run barefoot along the beach, through the grass and avoid all concrete (running on that barefoot is like death to my feet soecifically). But all the problems I find with running on grass is that it is usually under trees. and the problem with that is the spiky things that are lying in wait for my foot to come crashing down on them. So after some googeling I found a shoe that I had seen on a member of  GunFace ( A BAND FROM BATHERST) when we went bushwalking (technically it was a geocash adventure).

 

The Vibram

I want a pair, like badly! Can you imagine being able to run barefoot and not have to worry about thorns hiding in the grass.

Having strong feet Naturally!

They have a great list of resources that can help you understand why a change to their shoes is beneficial to you Here

 

When I get a pair… WHEN, not ‘if’. I will tell you all about them unless you beat me to it!

Genie Bra, Paris Bra

I’m not sure if anyone else has been watching day time tv at work

You know those channels where they constantly try and sell you stuff.

My mum has this habit of getting over tired from working night shift and sitting in front of the tv trying to keep herself awake… The bonus is for me I can give you a short review on the products if she buys them.

The end result is she bought two separate types of bra off the tv that do the same thing.

 

I have tried both of them, and oh my god i don’t get it! It isn’t more comfortable and it certainly isnt sexy. they do offer a way that you can send it back and not have to keep it if you dont like it… but the problem with “risk free trials” is that I dont have the energy to send it back.  (Lazy I know)

Genie Bra

 

See what I also found with these is that I cant wear any of my clothes because it comes up to high that I have to wear very high necked outfits. I felt NO support = Lame.. it does feel like wearing nothing but basically I went for a run, and not only was it not good for that but it doesn’t have very good hmm how to put it… even under two shirts over the top you can see the poke of the nipple. SO basically in my book A Very Big Thumbs Down, but my mum likes them so I guess it is a personal choice. 

 

SuperStay Lip Colour – Maybelline

Alright. My mum always told me a brunet should never go anywhere without lipstick.  

 

And since life is so short to not look good I have decided to share with you something that I use on days when looking good is not an option ( Its because I’m so good looking when i wake… I joke)  basically when I go to Work.

SO let’s blame my mum and go down to a priceline or a boots and buy a lipstick. not just any lipstick… a super stay one

To be truthful when it says 24 hours it will be on for atleast half that.. it just depends on whether you like to drink and eat.

I own about 4 of the same brand by Maybelline, 715 and 745 I have in my hand bag at the moment

I use them alot but the “super stay” stays around the top top of my lip by the end of the day.

The problem with these are that they do crumble, sorry maybelline that is false advertising,

According to their website:

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

Meet the 24-hour lipcolor that stretches the limits of longwear:
• Micro-Flex formula glides on and looks gorgeous all day
• No crumbling, no caking, no fading, no feathering, no transferring
• 2-step lipcolor in one pack
• 30 long-lasting shades

Why I Don’t Love It

  • it cracks, it crumbles, it half fades when ever I eat and by the end of the day I look like I have lip liner on and that is it.
  • it doesnt last as long as you think it will
  • it transfers on to napkins, waterbottles, glass… alot of things :S and ends up ruing them since the colour is “super stay”.. but not to your lips

Why do I still use it

  • it’s easy
  • it lasts a long time.. not on your lips but the tube itself
  • if your lips are super smooth and you don’t wear lip balm like ever it looks great. but wearing it two days in a row causes my lips to feel really rough no matter how much or how little I use the top coat.
  • did I mention it is easy to put on?
  • once I use a glass at a dinner party I know it is mine due to the transfer

Compared to regular lipstick I find it is a little more durable 

I’ll continue to buy it until something amazing comes out that might actually be chemical free that is at an affordable price…. like red food dye haha

Fools Gold Trilogy Book Review and Details

Alright to these books fall under Fantasy and Adventure in my books.
The Fools Gold Books are amazing. I really can not describe how lost I became in them. The first book had be captured by the first chapter.
The Series follows Katla Aransen, a Fiery Red Head From Rockfall.
Rockfall, A island (exactly how it sounds – it has rocks, sheer cliffs that look out to sea) of the Northern Isles, ruled by King Ravn. The people of Rockfall are basically a fishing and farming community, with Katla working in the smithy forging swords. Her Father, Aran Aranson, the Master of Rockfall and her mother, Bera Rolfsen at his side.

The Society of Erya, while it does have a great divide between genders, it is much more relaxed than the Istrian society. The world, Elda is divided into Eyra (Norther Isles) and Istria (The Southern Empire)

Eryan Women of Rockfall: “…Women listen to no man and are not told what to do or controlled by the males in their families. As children they are educated alongside boys in schools, they can often choose their own husband and renounce them if the marriage went awry.. They run the farms when their husbands were away and held sway over their own households, even when the husbands came home;.. they could earn their own money, and inherit estates; some women traveled and fought and had no man at all, but lived by their wits and their skills…” While Women of this society are still not equal to men it is very similar to a westerner view in my opinion.

Istrian Women: Men write the rules and basically send people to the fires (Burning people alive, a very medieval thing ) who don’t observe the rules. The religion followed in Istria is very “restrictive”, rules enforced by punishment and pain. Women “help men perform worship”, they are considered sacred and important.. well my understanding is they are “sacred” for their bodies. Women are locked away and covered up by Sabtka, kept like toys used for pleasure, The religion rules the society, and women are something to be owned and have no freedom. Remind you of another culture in today world?

 

God Of The North: Sur –  God of the Wind and the Sea, of “rock and wild places and creatures of the deep”

God Of The South: Falla – Goddess  worshiped through sex basically because it is “The goddesses will”

 

 

North: Pale Hair or Auburn Haired, with blue or grey eyes with light skin weathered by the elements.
The dress is usually more encouraging movement.

South: Dark skinned and Dark Haired,
The dress is usually expensive or brightly colored fabrics (sometimes outlandish), women are painted u like a doll, their hands, if their family is well off or a houris (Courtesan/ Whore) to someone rich, then their hands may have henna designs on them with painted nails.

The books by Jude Fisher ( Alias name) were eye opening, looking at a mirror image of our own world, the only difference is, magic was a big thing then ( worth burning for)

To Compare the two cultures without needing to even state it obviously shows just how well these books are written.
First book starts off with Allfair, A annual event which all traders will attend, it is a great chance for the two cultures to exchange goods, the only problem is the long and forever ongoing hatred between the two. The temporary hold on war is nearly shaken by Katla’s adventurous streak after climbing Sur’s Castle, a Rock that rises of the Moonfell Plain, the only problem with her rock climbing exploits here is that the Southerners, see it as Falla’s Rock, a sacred place where no scantily clad woman should be allowed to climb, that starts off the adventure of a lifetime, literally a lifetime, with Katla’s friends and family killing and being killed as the tale unfolds.
