Social Blooming

Social Blooming presents depends for men, reliable and always there to prevent accidents. Kidding, social blooming was created to help creep into the minds of others, identify social issues, and bluntly layout the comments of my choosing. I find different social settings to be intriguing and lessons, no matter if they are positive or negative. As long as I have learned something, the experience was well worth the pain or joy. There are 3 rules that help me succeed with everything. Never fight with loved ones over finances - money always comes and goes...more

Here is a quick tip in finding your 3 minute face!

You are busy and don't have alot of time to be playing with makeup and creating different looks for yourself so what you should do is find a product that does more than one thing for you. For example find an eyebrow pencil and use it on your eyebrows and also as an eyeliner! then try a lipstick and dab it on the cheeks for a quick blush as well as your lip finish. Moms multitask in every area of their lives so why not in your beauty routine as well?...more

A New Perspective On Cleaning Toilets

After spending the morning with our sponsored children, Team World Vision and our amazing hosts, men and women who work and live in Lwamaggwa, Daniel’s community, loaded into thee four-wheel drive vehicles and headed out to see more of World Vision’s work in the community.    Lwamaggwa is located deep in the country in southern Uganda.  November is rainy season, so the red dirt roads on which we traveled were a muddy mess.  The mud and the ruts were no match for our drivers.  Many times, we approached water-covered roads and I thought there was no way to cross....more

Fighting Addiction

There comes a point in time when you have to take a step back and just say no. I don’t mean saying no and not giving a second’s consideration as to whether you actually believe in the word and what it is standing for.
