Women are busier than ever these days, yet even as we juggle work, family, social obligations and a desire to stay healthy, we're also expected to look amazing. Most of us are able to strike a good balance with accomplishing daily tasks, but when time grows tight the first thing we forsake is our appearance.
That's because most makeup can't keep up with a woman's hectic schedule. After a few hours in the real world, a normal foundation ends up looking streaky or patchy, and it often smudges and rubs off onto clothing—in some cases, another person's! Applying more just weighs on the skin and clogs pores, so we invariably skip it altogether, dab on a little lip gloss, and hope for the best.
However, a new product may change how we think about foundation forever.
CoverProof is a new company that’s pushing the boundaries of cosmetic innovation. Comprised of a world-class research team and “curiosity-driven” scientists, Cover Proof is creating a new generation of formulations that unite unparalleled performance with easy use.
Take, for example, CoverProof’s 24+ Hour Foundation. It's available in 5 shades— fair, light, medium, medium dark and dark—and with one simple application, this lightweight, long-wear foundation renders imperfections invisible, transforming both the look and feel of your skin.
The secret is Cover Proof's revolutionary Tri-Plex Long Wear formula. It works on three levels to deliver durable and long-lasting performance that’s comfortable and remarkably nourishing for the skin. The Tri-Plex Long Wear provides:
Cover Proof is also packed with a multi-vitamin complex that nourishes skin. Vitamins A and C boost collagen production and support healthy cellular turnover, while vitamin E protects against harmful UV rays and free radical damage, promoting a healthy and youthful appearance.
And the results? In testing, a group of women put Cover Proof through its paces to demonstrate the long wear capabilities. From an intense 40-minute workout to swimming in a chlorinated pool to sleeping the night away, there were some amazing findings:
What if you were told there was a way you may avoid dementia, strengthen your cognitive skills, and heighten your intelligence, and all you had to do was learn another language?
It probably sounds great, because if you’re like most you would love to be able to speak a second language. But then, you recall your experience in high school foreign language – boring rote memorization and long hours with little progress – and perhaps it doesn’t sound so good any more.
But, what if you were told it would take only 10 days to be on your way to becoming bilingual? Most people recognize the many benefits of learning a foreign language: You can travel to foreign countries and feel comfortable, be a more productive and enticing employee in today’s competitive job market, and immerse yourself in the vast cultures that surround you.
But now, the collective evidence from a number of recent studies suggests that the bilingual experience improves the brain’s so-called executive function — a command system that directs the attention processes that we use for planning, solving problems, and performing various other mentally demanding tasks.*
These processes include the ability to ignore distractions to stay focused, switching attention willfully from one thing to another, and holding information in the mind — like remembering a sequence of directions while driving.
Even better, new approaches to learning mean you can learn a new language without the endless repetition, homework, and memorization. One of the most powerful, The Pimsleur Approach, actually trains people to start speaking a new language in as little as 10 days! In fact, it’s so powerful, even the FBI has purchased it!
What is the Pimsleur Approach?
The Pimsleur Approach aims each lesson at teaching you to use the core vocabulary of the language, so you can speak the most in the least amount of time. It's not how many words you know, but rather, which words you can use.
Each Pimsleur Approach lesson has been scientifically sequenced to rapidly lock language material into your brain after just one listen. Let the audio guide you; the program is based on what language learning should be: Quick, fun, and easy. You'll absorb your new language without any reading, writing, or computer use.
The Pimsleur Approach has a 100 percent guarantee: Speak in 10 days or you don't pay.
And, if that doesn’t tempt you, the benefits to learning a new language just keep adding up. In addition to keeping your mind sharp and your reflexes quick, it also may ward off the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
For those looking to get smarter in just 10 days, the company is offering new customers a special offer of half off the language of your choice including free shipping. The programs (which normally cost $19.95) are now available for just $9.95.
Better yet, they are also offering a full 30-day money-back guarantee (so, if you find you are not learning as fast as you want, simply return it for a full refund).

Kunle Oluwadiya aka Kid Konnect, Award winning music producer; was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. He fell in love with music at a young age, listening to reggae and classical music owned by his father. This set the foundation for Kid Konnect to learn the basics of music composition.
As he matured, so did his interest and knowledge for all genres of music. When most of his classmates were reciting their favourite rhymes from various rap songs, he opted to pay attention to every aspect of the instrumental - from the loud kick or bass, to the carefully hidden echoes of the hi-hats. Kid Konnect left Nigeria for the United States to pursue a degree in Business Economics. While in school, Kid Konnect’s roommate introduced him to music production software named FL Studio. Kid Konnect dedicated himself to mastering the program in its entirety to produce industry worthy beats.
Several years later, Kid Konnect has garnered the hearts and respect of many through his various music productions, particularly in the genre of Hip-Hop.
Production credit includes: M.I, Wizkid, Banky W, Skales, Brymo, Proto (Chiddy Bang), eLDee the Don, Modenine, Kahli Abdu and many more.

From her fabulous, peplum-enhanced Peter Pilotto blouse to her equally fierce Giuseppe Zanotti pumps -- and everything in-between, including black leather Plein Sud pants -- the "Spring Breakers" star's head-to-toe ensemble was hot to trot. Green eyeshadow and flat-ironed tresses completed her flawless look.

I am honestly still mulling over the comments by Monalisa Chinda to Sunday Entertainment Express over the weekend. I was discussing it with some friends and a few of them mentioned she was just being honest to herself and her beliefs, and I applaud her for that. When asked if she would like to re-marry one day, the actress replied,
"I would love to. I am designed to be under a man. I am not going to lie that I like the single mother thing going on. I believe in marriage. Whether you like it or not, it is the best option but it's not a do or die thing though. I have been there before and if I'm going to do it again, it has to be right by the Grace of God. I am not ready to make another mistake."
So this is not about Monalisa, I'll just like us to consider the words, "designed to be under a man" and how that relates to relationships. Considering it from three levels,
1. designed to be under a man - men generally
2. designed to be under any man - any man you end up in any kind of relationship with
3. designed to be under a specific man - a man who loves you in a mutually respectful relationship.
The first and second are obviously out. The third seems workable on the face of it. Yes, traditional gender roles that prescribed fixed responsibilities and duties for men and women can work for two specific people who are in a relationship. But they can also be problematic for a lot of reasons, the main one being caging people in, both the man and woman in the relationship chafe at such ball and chain, and before you know it, they begin to act out.
I also believe in marriage, and if I had to describe the relationship between husband and wives, I would choose words different from
Designed makes it seem like you're giving up responsibility for your life to an outside power beyond your control, so I would use prefer, want, enjoy, in order words, be particular about your choices.
I would also say "with" rather than under. Under can be quite restrictive, and can be subject to abuse. However, when you're with someone, you can be under, over, beside, behind, ahead, in other words, you have more room to maneuver, more freedom to be real, and to be your full self.
