Etiquette for Adults Part Deux


This is the second and last part in the series, Etiquette for adults. In case you missed it, here is the first part in Etiquette for Adults. Some of us are in severe need in a crash course in manners, so here are 4 more rules every modern grown up should follow.

Learn the appropriate times for swearing. Having a filthy mouth is not a badge of honor. But let's face it, in today's culture everyone curses. When I am around a certain group of friends we swear more than a group of drunken bikers. But any other time I chose my words very cautiously. I know whom it is appropriate to curse in  front of and who it's not. It's never appropriate to curse in public, around children or the elderly, at work, school, church, funerals, weddings. So only use swear words in the privacy of your home, or the home of other fowl mouthed people.


Tip your waitress. A good friend of mine that I've known since childhood, never tips her waitress. After many embarrassing lunch dates, I asked why she didn't tip. She said growing up her parents never tipped so she didn't know when she was supposed to. Any time you go to an actual sit down restaurant(not fast food) you should tip. It's also very nice to tip your hair dresser and the person who does your nails. After all, these people are very under paid.


Learn where your personal space is, and stay out of others. There is not many situations more uncomfortable than standing in line at the supermarket or target and the person behind you standing right behind you. Most of the time you can feel their breathe on you. Or having someone talk to you and them be an inch from your face. If you have never had this to happen to you, then you are probably the one doing it to others. Rule of thumb, stay at the very least an arms length away from others.


Don't chew gum, ever. This is my biggest pet peeve ever. I despise gum chewing with a passion. It is very gross, unsanitary and it makes you look like a cow chewing grass. The noise of someone chewing gum is worse than nails on a chalkboard. Okay, so now i'm just ranting. But seriously, it is one of the most ill mannered things you can do. And to all gum chewers of the world, just spit it out, for the sake of the rest of us.

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on sephora.com. I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.


The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:


Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
