How To Read Makeup Labels: MAC Cosmetics
Have you ever wondered what the label on the bottom of a MAC lipstick means? Those numbers and letters aren't random. It's the batch number or batch code that helps date when the product was manufactured. For instance, I know that I bought this lipstick, Heroine, just after January of 2012 because of the label. Why is that something you should care about? Beyond the quality of the product, expired cosmetics could potentially be damaging to your skin, so you want to make sure you can find out how old the products you're using actually are. There's a general guideline for how long you should continue using a product, but I'll save that for another day. Let me show you how to find the age of that MAC product you're using.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the death of Laura Palmer, the tragic heroin of David Lynch's television show Twin Peaks, I've put together a collection of handmade jewelry inspired by the series. In the final episode, Laura tells FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper that she will see him again in 25 years. Earlier this year there was a casting call sent out for a Twin Peaks promo. Ray Wise, who played Leland Palmer let this slip:
"Yeah, we [shot the promo for the Blu-ray] two days ago. It’s been done. I don’t know if I was supposed to leak that to anybody, but yeah, we did it and I’m not at liberty to say what was done. I can say that it’s going to be a big surprise."So, it looks like there's something new in the works we can all look forward to. In the meantime, we can all sate our obsession with this phenomenal series with this collection of Twin Peaks related jewelry. Enjoy!
Laura Palmer inspired nail art
Ah, Twin Peaks, the television show that changed everything. If it weren't for Twin Peaks there would never have been an American Horror Story or a Carnivàle. It literally changed television. Laura Palmer was the tragic heroin of Twin Peaks whose body was discovered on the morning of February 24th, 1989. Today marks the 25th anniversary of her death and the electricity of what was sparked those twenty-five years ago is still strong today. Laura Palmer has always been a character close to my heart, and in celebration of her memory, I bring to you my Laura Palmer inspired nail art.
