I think there is nothing that can be compared to getting us through the week like a fun guessing game. Lime Crime posted an update on the new products which the brands are set to launch on April 24, and there is an overdrive of speculation that they will be fun. For most there hope is that the new product is the next iteration of the Venus eyeshadow palette. Is there a chance that we will be witnessing the upcoming birth of Venus 3?
That’s an obvious thing, because of the feature of a palette on the update, the palette is seen floating in the sun rays, that in fact, means that it’s a palette. It’s expected to be the best when compared with previous versions of the brands like the Venus, Venus II, and Venus XL. The component that makes up the palette are vibrant and versatile and as applied its super silky. Let’s have a look at some of the previous launch of Lime Crime.
What someone should expect from the palette is a mash of Botticelli’s painting with a touch of a rebellion of the early 90s. The palette is made of nude sea colors that are of 8 different shades. The shades are rust red, unconventional neutrals, brick brown, and burgundy. To the liking of the person, the eyeshadow recklessly pigmented will be worn alone, or match it flawlessly to get the new look, painterly finish. The box has an eye-catching kitschy artwork.
The palette is made of eight rebelliously shades that are pigmented for the user that needs to take make up to the next level. For people that want the banging eyeshadow trends the VENUS II will have the user wielding the makeup brush. The palette is safely stored in a beautiful marbled box that on the outside it has kitschy artwork.
The Venus XL changed the whole thing when lime water first launched it. Because it consists of 18 long-wearing shades, designed for the eye, it’s the one swipe coverage, for the cheek and face, and four unique finishes. The packaging is a beautiful mirrored gilded box.
As the calendar moves closer to the warm summer months, the United States congressional races ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, are already heating up. End Citizens United is a progressive based support system for candidates that are either walking away from corporately slanted funding, or at the very least advocating for campaign finance reform.
The Washington D.C. based organization is now in its third year, formed to endorse candidates who reject special interest group manipulation of legislators. End Citizens United takes its name as a counterpunch against Citizens United. The organization blossomed as a result of a single court ruling in 2010.
Supporters contend that the Citizens United vs. FEC decision was wrong, and opened the floodgates of what they refer to as dark money to flood unbridled into the nation’s political process. ECU president Tiffany Muller and supporters believe that too many politicians accept massive campaign donations from the nefarious sources.
Because of the influence of this funding, they end up legislating with an allegiance to these massive interest groups instead of in the best interest of the local constituents. The progressive organization believes it to be at the core of corrupt politics in Washington D.C. and is fighting to push candidates who denounce the old ways into office.
One of their most visible candidates, Beto O’Rourke is beginning to make headway against former Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz in Texas. O’Rourke has served six years representing the 16th congressional district in Texas and has his eyes on the state’s senatorial seat come November.
Another big target for the campaign reform march is aimed at soon-to-retire Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Randy Bryce is now trying to accomplish what many felt was impossible. Bryce, a former military veteran and ironworker, has outraised his competition by nearly $2 million just in the first quarter of 2018.
Collectively, ECU hopes to generate over $35 million for candidates they endorse. All of his funding has come even though he has denounced any stream of donations from special interest groups. There target is what they call the “Big Money 20“, deemed the biggest abusers of special interest campaign contributions.
Early last month the door for Bryce swung wide open with Ryan’s announcement he would not be seeking reelection. The objective of the Democratic Party is to ride a blue wave into November in an attempt to secure control of both houses of Congress.
While wave of Democratic congressional control is also the goal of every End Citizens United supporter, they want that wave to be devoid of the campaign money they deem compromises elected officials’ ability to legislate with integrity. End Citizens United is working to propel the blue wave, but without the need for dark money contributions.

Many spend the early morning of their day preparng their list of to-do, instead, do it before bed or the night before. That way you can use the early morning to get a head start on your tasks versus still contemplating what they are.
- One Centralized List
Over time we tend to collect different lists across different platforms or mediums. The key is to centralized so you’re less worried about where a task was documented or let it slip all together.
- Keep Time In Mind
With each item is good to have an indication of when it will be started or completed. Why not also include and estimation on how long it will take to finish, this will work wonders for the next tip.
- Keep Priorities In Check
Prioritize your list based on time attributes to improve efficiency. For example, why not start with the most difficult or start that long-term project first, you don’t have to finish, but at least it’s atarted.
- Always Re-evaluate Your List
Stay vigilant on what items you’ve completed, it helps to encourage you, but also be away of items that no longer need to be on the list, which can help speed along the process.

Some tasks require a little more energy than others, tag tasks with a low, medium and high energy scale grade to better focus on the high at the beginning of the day and low towards the end.
Chris affirms that when it time comes to invest in your retirement, It’s always best to start in your youth. Here is an example to show how starting in your youth or starting later can affect your investment when it comes to your retirement. Madison began investing early and earning an interest of $225,000. This is more than another investor named Cooper who does not have that much to spend during his retirement. Those who begin to invest late in life are often riddled with how they will invest their money in the present and future. When you start investing early, you have a great advantage because of when you began. Well-informed investors understand the benefits of investing early.
Is always best to hear from a well-seasoned advisor. Chris Linkas is the Managing Director and European Head of Credit with a London based investment firm and is frequently asked about the best time to start investing in one’s future. He stated that the earlier you begin planning for retirement, the sooner you will begin to see the potential of your ROI(Return on Investment). The best way to explain the correlation between early planning and compound interest is with another example using Madison. The mid 20-year-old Madison invests around $2,000 annually over 10 years in her 401k that is matched by her company, with a 10% interest growth. The earlier you begin investing, the less stress you will endure and the more financially stabled you will be in the future (https://www.discogs.com/artist/2617983-Chris-Linkas). Early investing can play a part in how you will approach your finances in the future and can lead to making less irresponsible mistakes.

O2pur is a company that produces electronic cigarettes. It was started to meet clients needs, and provide a variety for smokers. This company has provided new users with a new and better options since traditional cigarettes have several flaws compared to this new technique.
When using eCigs, you do not have to search for smoking zones since it has no restrictions on where it should be smoked therefore one can use it anywhere for example in an office, parks, hotel just to mention.
Traditional cigarettes may be uncomfortable for users as well as people living around, since they cause unpleasant smell on your clothes, hands and your body in general. When using eCigs, you do not have to worry about all this. You have all the confidence to smoke it anytime you want without worrying about the bad sensation that a regular cigarette would leave you.
The regular cigarettes are expensive than eCigs produced by O2pur since they have to be purchased on a daily basis. The total cost of buying regular cigarettes in a year is thrice the cost of purchasing one electronic cigarette.
Another advantage of electronic cigarettes over traditional cigarettes is that e-cigs do not pollute the environment in terms of excess smoke released to the atmosphere and in terms of fire outbreaks. Most fire outbreaks in the parks and the forests are caused by traditional cigarettes where throw left over cigarette in the bush.
O2pur designs electronic cigarettes differently, and they contain different flavors such as orange flavor, strawberry, apple, among others. In this case it gives you some added pleasure than the traditional cigarettes and this added benefit in eCigs comes with just minimal costs.

Few business professionals can say they’ve accomplished as much in their professions as Glen Wakeman, much less in the two decades that Wakeman himself did. Educated at The University of Scranton and then The University of Chicago, Glen spent the next twenty years of his life building an empire that’s not only a culmination of hard work and dedication, but that is a beacon of hope for entrepreneurs world-wide.
Wakeman began his GE Capital career helping companies transform their business strategies. The millionaire-minded businessman was soon overseeing companies with as many as 17 thousand employees and $10 billion in assets. Over 20 years Glen Wakeman lived in six different countries and traveled to over 30 while holding multiple positions with GE. While acting as General Director for GE Capital, Global Insurance Ventures, he created sales strategies for several businesses, increasing their annual income from $2 million to just over $3 billion, progressing to Director of Business Development for GE Money and COO for Consolidated Financial Insurance Group (GE). Later he would help create a nine-country operation for GE Money Latin America, securing over $12 billion in assets and bringing in over $100 million annually.
Like all good things, Glen Wakeman’s tenure with GE Capital came to an end, but the leading business financial strategist wasn’t ready to stop there. After watching several business ideas fail that he felt were workable but that lacked strategy and a sound business plan, Glen Wakeman knew that his experience and expertise could be of some help. He would soon found LaunchPad Holdings, an SAAS firm that is now known for its ability to help entrepreneurs and start-ups of all sizes create a solid business strategy by building off the ideas of the client. The services, which cost $100, typically only take 30 minutes to an hour and help clients take their idea for a business and turn it into a viable, working plan. In addition to LaunchPad Wakeman is a regular and well-known blogger on topics like angel investing and business strategies and mentors several C-level executives on an ongoing basis.
