Martial Arts Humor – The Jiu-Jitsu Man Bun, By Tyson Gay

Love that this super black belt, Tyson Gay, posted how you keep your long locks from getting totally yanked to oblivion on the mats!  (I have, myself, heard the telltale *RIP!* only to see my strands – MANY – laying there helplessly!)

That said, his hair is incredibly fine, so if yours is fuller…it may not stay so nicely!

Fortunately it didn’t get yanked when this was taken! 🙂

I’ve tried all sorts of bun permutations.  They’ve all come out, or needed to be redone.  Still, that’s kind of par for the course when you Jiu-Jitsu and have layered hair…

100 Layers Of Polish!?

Someone posted this 100 layer nail polish video the other day and I have to say. . .it was terribly entertaining.  I can’t say I watched it all the way through (I was doing other things as it played) but the parts that I did see had me chuckling for sure.  

Simply Nailogical has a sense of humor, and apparently is up for a challenge (who would do this, you ask?  Well, she got a ton of requests so consider it incredible customer service?!)

There are Golden Graham and pizza cameos, since basically this took the entire day, along with humorous interruptions and hard-to-follow phone calls. She’s also a cat lover, so felines make random appearances. . .as do strange, horrifying, Sci-fi-like voice-overs (short but no less weird!)

She delves well into the night (past midnight as it turns out) layering on every polish she has there at her salon. . .and at the end, she gives you the satisfaction of peeling it all off.  

So again, I didn’t necessarily sit and watch this through, but I laughed along with the commentary, and whatever portions I did see.  With the advent of YouTube you really can see everything…

Sephora Eye Contouring

I’ve touched on the “eye contour” trend with an earlier post, Estee Lauder Shape + Sculpt.  It is not that it isn’t valid as an idea – it IS…and it can make a nice difference!  

But…keep in mind that you can most certainly achieve this with many of the eye shadows and products you already own.  A palette puts them all in one place, but often a “nudes” or “browns” or “neutrals” palette will give you the same thing!

Moving along…

Sephora recently posted a video about how to achieve this – and visual tutorials are always a wonderful thing. 🙂

It’s quite simple, and won’t take too much…but on days you may want to define your beautiful eyes just a little bit more, these tips will come in handy.
