Silk Naturals thoughts and EOTD

Silk Naturals is one of my favorite cosmetic companies. They sell various things such as skin care, lip glosses and various clones from MAC and Bare Escentuals. The lip glosses are really awesome, as of right now it's my favorite brand of lip gloss. Some of my other favorites are extra light peach Sleep In A Jar - really helps with the dark purple circles on fair skin, Date Bait - an awesome finishing powder that makes your skin look more alive and the Brown Sugar and Vanilla lip scrub. A little bit of lip scrub goes a long way, it smells and taste wonderful and works really well at exfoliating your lips. After using the lip scrub, their Devil's Food or Southern Praline lip balm are a dream to put on. They both smell delicious and are very moisturizing. I have the Chocolate-Orange balm coming and will review that later. Some of my favorite blushes are Stardust, Cosmic and Lady. The always stay true to color and never turn orange and the samples in a jar are only $1.25. My favorite lip gloss is Black Dahlia - it's in their vegan line and is a gorgeous color.  I will also be getting a sample of foundation and will review that at a later time.

Now for the shadows! They are so nice. All the ones I have tried are very nice with complex shimmers. The only bad thing about them is that you can't buy samples. They are only $4 for a small jar and if you don' like it they take returns (same with the lip glosses). Oh, and if you spend $10 they will send you a free surprise shadow. AND for every $30 you spend you get a free shadow of your choice. Also, their shipping and handling is some of the cheapest around!! My favorite shadows are the Smokey Plum Quad.

In this look I am wearing Hint on the lid, Fete in the crease and Sprite under the brow. It looks SO much better in person. I would highly recommend Fete and Sprite. This is a very pretty neutral look.

For long-distance touring? For off-road riding? Would carbon MTB frameyou like to get into racing?
If you are shopping for your first bike and don't know exactly what sort of biking activity you'll enjoy most,
it's best to get a versatile bike, such as a hybrid, that is suited for a number of different kinds of riding.
Remember though, while hybrids are good for 26 wheel mountain bikegeneral use, their middle-of-the-road design means
they won't be as well-suited for any one purpose as a bike designed specifically for that type of riding.
For instance, hybrid wheels are apt to warp if subjected to the rigors of the trail.
For that reason, many riders find mountain bikes even more versatile than hybrids.
As you discover what kind of riding you like best, you may bicycle racing wheelswant to trade up for a bicycle more closely designed for one specific activity,
whether it be touring, racing, or mountain biking.
Or if you find you like them all, you may decide to splurge and get a separate bike for each type of riding.
This will cost you a lot more, of course, but ysbike01 it will also best satisfy you when it comes to riding comfort and efficiency.
No matter what kind of bike you get, be prepared to care for it properly so that you can enjoy it as long as possible.
There are hundreds of reputable carbon wheelsbicycle manufacturers—large and small—to choose from.
Usually, though, a bike's brand name is not as important as the makers of its individual parts.
After all, a large percentage of bike frames are made in Japan or China and sold to U.S. companies who simply put their name on them.
And as large American companies consolidate the industry by buying out smaller bike manufacturers,
brand names are becoming even more confusing and irrelevant.
