Cool Finds

You don't really have to go to a drug store or a department store for your make-up needs anymore. And you definitely don't have to pay an arm and a leg for things like lipstick and perfume. Lots of your fave clothing stores are expanding their stock to include fun stuff, like lip gloss and perfume. The best part is - they're not crap.

The Gap

The Gap was one of the first stores to branch past socks and bootleg jeans. They've been selling their own brand of perfume, in several scents, for a while now. But recently, on a quick trip to my local Gap, I discovered some really cool lip gloss, called Lipshine. It's a total find! It comes in cool flavors like Strawberry or Tangerine and adds a little color and glitter to your pucker. The biggest score is, it's pretty big (size-wise) and it's cheap - under $5. My fave is Strawberry - it swirls white and pink for a frosty, light color.

Banana Republic

Nowadays it's kinda hard to be original, especially when you're talking scent. Seems like everybody is wearing Calvin or Ralph - but believe it or not, they haven't cornered the market on perfume. Years ago, the cool clothing chain Banana Republic came out with their own scents. First they had two, simply called Banana Republic Women and Banana Republic Men.

I found out about 'em cuz a cute boy I knew said he loved when chicks wore the women's scent. Well, nothing beats an endorsement from a cute guy, so I had to check it out. He was right! This stuff is flowery without being babyish and musky without making you smell like you just stepped out of the woods. It wasn't at all overpowering either. And it rings in at less than those designer scents - only $35 US.

After all, if there's one person who knows you the most it's the one good friend that's always been there for you. I can't handle lots of friends who don't want to deal with my problems and only respect me for what they get in return. Thank you my friend, I am agree

    Hey, I'm only 13 and I'm already sick of my life, and it's all because of my family, you'd think friends are likely to hurt your emotions some time and you have your family to love you and back you up, for me? No no that's not the case, I have by far the least caring family and that's that. I'm the youngest and my family all treat me like a slave. They don't let me sit at home and play on my PS4, my dad lives separate and my mum don't want me to go there and do nothing either. But they don't let me go out with my friends either not even see them, and I know my family deeply and I know it's cuz they don't want me to enjoy my self or have fun. My siblings will try to make my out as a bad person and a burden to the family. If I try explaining myself if they've got something wrong about me I get shouted out or ignored. And punished sometime for something that I probably didn't even do. And even if they can tell my bro or sis got something wrong about me the rest of the family still back them up to get me in the wrong. I have cried and cried at night hit myself and put physical pressure on my body because of the stress it gives me. I can't speak to my family about it because I'm not allowed my say in anything, I just get ignored or in trouble. I don't know what to do anymore and I think I am depressed because it hurts and what I'm going through stresses me and it gets really hard to try make myself feel happier and better, I am actually considering killing myself but I know it's not the right thing to do and just hurting myself is fine now. But I need your help now. What do I do for myself in this situation? Because I don't know what I can do myself right now. Help! Thanks
