A ~Not~ Beauty Related Post

One of the things I hate to see is people talking on their cellphone while driving. I have seen some near crashes, and a man talking on his cellphone rear ended my husband at one time.  Thank God no one was injured. Even though you do not need your eyes while talking on the phone, your attention is not where it should be. I’ve even noticed this when I am driving in an area I don’t know well, when I need to be alert to navigate, watch for signs, and follow directions, that I must turn off the radio. That divides my attention and slows my reaction time when I need it.

The Bangalore Traffic Police (India) created a very graphic set of advertising posters about the dangers of talking on cellphones while driving. The two I have below are from Advertolog, an advertising website where I learned about this ad campaign.

Talk them dead

Talk them dead

Interesting twist here, instead of targeting the drivers, it targets the people on the other end of the line. It’s very clever once you think about it. Those drivers couldn’t be talking on their cellphones while driving without someone willing to speak to them. If you know your loved one is driving, get off the phone. Do you really want to hear the screeching of the brakes, crunching metal, and screams? If you do not, then your call can wait until your loved one is safely parked.

Here is the Advertolog post that this post is referencing.


OMG! These look so fun and adorable. First, let me give you a little bit of background, many many years ago when my youngest son was in grade school, he was nuts for Pokemon on Gameboy and had several of the games. Well, I’m a night owl. I’ve always had insomnia to some extent and rarely go to bed before at least 1 or 2am. To help my baby out, I would sometimes level his Pokemon up late at night, and then I got hooked. The game really is addictively fun. Now my baby is a man, he’s 17 and a senior in high school. He told me that sometimes he does still dig out his gameboy and Pokemon games and plays a bit anyway. lol

My baybeeeeeeeThis is my baby about 2 – 3 years ago, and yes, that’s a real tiger cub he’s holding.

Now Shiro Cosmetics has gone and made eyeshadow pigments named after Pokemon characters, the colors look vibrant and gorgeous and I want these so much! I will have to wait until after the holidays to order the set I want, but THESE WILL BE MINE! If you don’t want to wait, then click on the graphic below to go to Shiro Cosmetics Etsy site.

Blogging Advice: What you should NOT do.

I realize I’m a new beauty blogger, so what do I know? Well, let’s find out! While doing a Google search and just surfing around I came across this—see if you are as good a sleuth as I am and tell me what’s wrong with this picture—

My google search was for trends in nail colors, and I wound up on a website named Refinery 29 with an article entitled, “Grab Fall 2010’s Top Nail Polish Trends“. Once I read that, I went on to read another article on nail color trends, entitled, “Grab Fall 2010’s Top Nail Polish Trends“. Wow interesting that two different sites come up with the same title, isn’t it? I decided to read a few more articles on this second site, and while I’m at it, Google the titles just to see if this “coincidence” happens again…and would you believe, it does—

Over at the website Zebra Swag we have, “Trend Spot: Satin Pants” and this Mode Devoted site also has “Trend Spot: Satin Pants“.

At there is an article, “On Our Radar:  L’Wren Scott Footwear” and at Mode Devoted, “On Our Radar:  L’Wren Scott Footwear“.

From the Chic Fashionista we have, “Closet Organizing Step by Step Guide” and at Mode Devoted, “Closet Organizing Step by Step Guide“.

With only the exception of her few posts of her own outfit of the day, most of the content on this site is lifted from other sites, there is no credit given to either the author of the articles or the websites they originally came from. If you didn’t know any better you would think this woman is working hard day and night writing excellent articles about fashion. All she is doing is a few Google searches and cutting and pasting other people’s hard work.
