Confessions of a Beauty Product Junkie: Ayelet Natural Skin Care

ayeletnaturals.com  
Lately I've been approached by natural skin care lines for story coverage and may I say it's opened my eyes to a whole new realm of beauty products.
Ayelet Meshulam's story is unique. She is a former chef, who developed an auto-immune disease that left her with severe allergies and skin irritations. Since nothing she tried worked, she developed her own products using her culinary skills.
Check out my article on her here.

Drake Watch: New Meek Mill Diss "Back to Back" is Fire



Okay, so once upon a time...aka last week Nicki and Taylor Swift had beef over Nicki's VMA tirade. They've since settled the said beef.
The same day? Meek called out Drake for not writing his own raps and so and so forth.
For a while the streets were quiet, then Drizzy dropped "Charged Up" but it just didn't hit hard enough. Meek called it baby lotion.
So, he played like his 'mentor' Aaliyah and dusted himself off and tried again and came back with Back to Back and we're all satisfied.
Some of the jabs stabbed at Meek were making fun of him for opening up for Nicki's Pink Print Tour.
"You love her then you gotta get a world tour / Is that a world tour or your girl's tour?/ I know that you gotta be a thug for her / This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more," 

Funkmaster Flex, you got Meek's rebuttal?

Hulk Hogan Out With WWE

flickeringmyth.com

We don't know if he was fired or resigned, but what we do know is that if you search Hulk Hogan on WWE's website, you'll find no trace of his existence.

The Hulkster issued an apology after reports surfaced that the WWE fired him following racist remarks that were made years ago. A report by the National Enquirer no less. Some media outlets were saying he used the N-word towards Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This is not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”
Hogan‘s lawyer told People that “he decided to resign from WWE because he didn’t want to put them or his family through this.”
However, earlier on Friday the World Wrestling Entertainment media team released this statement:
WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.

The alleged rant can be heard in the leaked unauthorized sex tape of the wrestler with his friend's wide. In it he uses the N-word along with other racist works. The Enquirer says he "directed his vulgar and prejudiced hatred at his daughter Brooke, who he accused of sleeping with a black man.
Using language so hate-filled and vile it would shock even his most ardent fans, Hulk brazenly blustered to Heather Clem – the wife of his former pal Bubba “The Love Sponge,” with whom he was covertly filmed having sex with in 2012 – that he was an unabashed 'racist.' 'I guess we’re all a little racist," he crowed on the tape."

Wow!
What a way to ruin your legacy.

Since this past weekend was the 20th anniversary of the movie Clueless, I figured this song was appropriate. This was my favorite from the soundtack.
