So one of my Instagram followers suggested that I attempt to do an unboxing via ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). Without getting too technical, this is the process of, when used on video, used to ‘massage’ your brain. So your get this mental massage through a series of ‘triggers’ like nail-tapping, the sound of brushing hair, whispering, etc. Well, trying to do it was so FUNNY for me!!!! Despite the fact that I failed at it miserably, I think I’ll do it again in the future…only because it was fun and a loyal subscriber requested it. Enjoy watching me being silly 😎
Here’s another set that puts itself different from the rest. Its bold, sleek, and colors are everywhere….we love it!
Yes Boo, I’m back and this time I have something to say about this BMB super lace glue. If you are ever looking to buy this product, don’t forget that you can get it at your local beauty supply store 🙂
Also, let me say that I actually had no intention on saying a WORD about this catfight that has been playing out in the media but, I just had to input my opinion, boo. How do you feel about it? Feel free to comment, like, subscribe, and share. Its an opinion discussion and definitely up for debate.
For those of us who are familiar with the flood of 2016, you know that unpredictable storm brought grief and devastation to southeast Louisiana at what we predicted to be the end of hurricane season. Also known as the ‘100-year rain event”, this rainstorm moved in as a hurricane without the wind and without a warning. At the peak, close to 20% of businesses in the state of Louisiana were affected by the storm, while over 6,000 businesses experienced physical flooding throughout East Baton Rouge, Livingston, Ascension, and other surrounding parishes. While the cleanup and the federal assistance has dragged out and stress the locals to this day, what is remarkable is the way in which the people of south Louisiana have managed to stay optimistic and true to tradition.
With the flood of 2016 also came another storm: presidential election season. When the annual SpanishTown parade came around in the city of Baton Rouge, came a new theme of ‘Come Hell or High Water’. Although we have recently lost one of the founding fathers Charles ‘Fish’ Fisher, he didn’t miss the fun of the response his beloved SpanishTown had to say on the 2016 flood and presidential election.

While SpanishTown parade is known for its quirky themes and pink flamingos that pepper the neighborhood in downtown Baton Rouge, its tradition stands as being an unbridled voice of the people back then, now, and in years to come.

Yes, I know that I am normally posting about my website’s latest fashions and about the contests I sponsor on Polypore and my travels but…..I had to take a second to discuss something. Usually, Facebook is full of rants of current events, calls for release of everyone from political prisoners to freeing distant cousins that are incarcerated at the nearby county jail. Its freedom of speech and one of the many things that makes this country unique.
While in the same breath, its also the thing that allows us to observe one’s true thought when in a setting of relaxation or on a topic in which people have a strong opinion. I was told by a wise person that ‘three things in this world or at the origin of all wars: women, religion, and politics”. I thank that person for all of the wise words throughout my years and understand that while those are the origins, they branch out into many, many subjects. Let’s take one subject that gets a lot of peoples’ blood boiling, especially in the civil and criminal laws, professors, psychologists, researchers, and studies alike – that’s the concept of the Bystander Effect.
Yale University referenced Professor Joel E. Disdale (University of California, San Diego) with his experiment of the Kitty Genovese murder in New York City, March 13, 1964 (Dimsdale, J, 2016). In this case, in short, the subject is chased down and assaulted in public, escapes, is chased down again and stabbed numerous times; this happens over a timespan of 30 minutes. In a series of events, the more people are around, the less likely (about seven percent) feel inclined to actually help the victim.
Then enters Facebook post that proves this theory:
While this Facebook question seems porposterious and downright absurd, it proves a point. There are people who feel that there way of apathy is correct, despite the law or the common, usually for most, unthought of judgement to consider another person’s life over circumstances. While the posting was a harmless scenario that was not a true situation, it allowed people, who replied with personal opinions, to openly discuss the fact that they were within the percentile of bystanders. Amazing.
