Long or Short?

The difference between a small business or startup and a successful and profitable company typically boils down to time and experience. But, there are certain factors that play a big part in how those companies grew to be successful — things like timing, having the right people, focus, and intensely hard work.

Stila Lip glaze

I have to confess: I’m a mess. My computers’s a mess, my phone’s a mess, and my closet is … Let’s not even go there. Let’s just say it’s not pretty. But I try. It’s strange, though. Every-time, just as I’m done organizing the closet (cramming everything in with a stick and quickly wrapping a chain around the door so it don’t burst open), something weird happens.

Like when I fall asleep on… Read more »

So, voilà, I discovered the illuminating powders. I’ve been using NARS Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush and I’ve been really happy with it, but right when I thought I would stick with NARS forever I got the Estée Lauder illuminating Powder Gelée.

About getting older & Origins Mexico

As long as I remember I’ve always thought about getting older. When I was young I thought getting older was cool. At 14 I couldn’t wait to be 16, then 18, then 21, and then 25, and then … then it stopped being cool. It’s not that I’m scared of getting older. No, what really terrifies me now is wasting time. Now I’m more conscious of every little decision I make. I pay… Read more »
