In Memory..Michael Jackson

I had to post a memorial about the King of Pop-Michael Jackson.  He was a musical genius and he changed my life from the moment my older sister got the “BAD” album when I was just 6 years old.  The more MJ I heard, the more I liked.   I rock to “Thriller” every Halloween and I danced at my wedding to “P.Y.T.”  My husband laughs at me to this day for the look on my face in a pic, when I got the  “Black or White” cassette tape on Xmas.  A lot of memories stay with me through music and my life would not be the same without Mr. Michael Jackson.

Rest In Peace Michael Jackson!

Ebay Buyers BEWARE!!!

macIf you have read my previous Crease No More post, you would know I am on a mission to revamp my makeup collection. And one of the brands I want to invest in is MAC. This is one of the best cosmetic brands used by makeup artists and if you have anything MAC you would know why.

maclipstickglossFor example I absolutely love their Lipglass. I’ve had a few here and there over the years, and while trying other brands, I’ve always returned to using MAC. Not only are the colors fabulous, the gloss stays on forever! I recently just purchased the Viva Glam Lipglass, with the Angel Lipstick at the MAC store along with the Paint Pot. I apply the lipstick first, and finish off with the gloss. The combination gives me the perfect tint that I love.

So being the shopper-on-a-budget that I am, I decided to check out Ebay for additional cosmetic necessities, such as brushes and eye shadows. I’m a confident Ebay shopper, I have purchased and sold several things and have never had a problem in the 6 years I’ve been an “ebayer”. I always check out a seller’s feedback, and only purchase from people who have great feedback.

ebay1 is swarming with MAC products. I spent days placing items on watch and seeing how much they were going for. I couldn’t believe the great deals, and Continue reading

The Roots on Late Night!

theroots1Say-it-ain’t so! I’m very excited for one of my favorite hip-hop bands the Roots. They are the house band on the Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon. As some may think this may be a mistake I have high hopes for both the Roots and Jimmy Fallon to survive together. Yes this means the Roots have “retired” from touring (for now I say) but they have a new gig. As ?uestlove said “This would basically match or surpass what we would make touring 200-plus days out of the year. And, two, this allows us to be home.” Not sure how Jimmy scored with having the Roots as his opening band but he has the best band in late-night. I will most definitely stay up to watch them every night. I think this is a great choice and will allow growth for both. The Roots will certainly raise their profile and attract new audiences.

When we saw the Roots live in the summer of 2003 I can tell you they are a very electrifying band, the best in the business! Being known for a heavily jazzy sound and live instrumentation they are the new sound hip-hop needed. If you don’t know about the Roots check them out with their latest album. Spread the word!
