People Cannot Get Enough Of These Gorgeous Flower Jelly Lipsticks

flower-lipstick

(PCM) People are losing their minds on both Instagram and Pinterest over the gorgeous flower jelly lipsticks from China. They are selling out all over the place because they are truly that darn adorable.

The lipsticks were created by Chinese beauty company Kailijumei and feature a clear lipstick that is infused with jelly, gold specks and a lovely little flower placed right in the center. They are almost too pretty to use, but just because of their gorgeous design, it doesn’t mean they don’t function as an awesome lipstick as well.

The Kailijummei lipsticks are body temperature activated and give your lips a sweet glossy pink tint which then turns a bit darker depending on the temperature and your mood. The Kailijumei website is completely sold out of these amazing lipsticks, however with a little digging around you can find them for sale on Ebay, however the company warns consumers to be careful about cheap knock-offs or expired product that could pose certain health dangers.

Definitely try and nab a few of these while they are hot and definitely beware if trying to score a bargain online!

Make Fried Chicken Like The American Revolutionaries

Jas.Townsend

(PCM) We have discovered a YouTube channel called Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc. that is dedicated to teaching individuals about what life was like for early pioneers living in the 1700’s. It is truly fascinating to study the way that people lived their lives before the advent of current technology began to take over.

The channel’s latest video teaches you how to make fried chicken in the way that our founding fathers would have done it!  We are willing to bet it tastes better than much of our over-processed food that is currently available today.

The recipe comes from Nathan Bailey’s 1736 cookbook, “Dictionarium Domesticum”.  Haven’t you always wanted to bust out your cauldron and cook over natural open flame? There is also a recipe for doughnuts as well, because who doesn’t want a little dessert after dinner. The doughnut recipe comes from  the 1805 American edition of Hannah Glasse’s cookbook, “The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy.”

Student Becomes A Viral Sensation After Walking Out Of High School Graduation Ceremony … For Good Reason!

Taylor-graduate

(PCM) Allentown, Pennsylvania high school student Tayler Michelle Gray has gained internet fame after she hilariously walked straight out of her high school graduation ceremony after being handed her diploma. Gray posted a video of her walkout to her Twitter account where she can be seen walking up to the stage, taking the diploma and then walking straight out the doors of Allentown’s PPL Center where the graduation ceremony was taking place.

Gray was attending Parkland High School as a way to finish up her degree while she was also attending Lehigh Career and Technical Institute to train as a nursing assistant. She recently began working at a home for seniors, so her diploma was more of a formality.

Gray claims that she felt no real reason to stay for the rest of the ceremony, as she wanted to spend more time with her family. She says told Buzzfeed News that she “didn’t want to sit with all the people. That’s a lot of traffic to sit in after” as well.

You tell em’ girl! The internet has fallen in love with Gray’s rather ballsy move calling her a “Queen” and “GOAT” meaning “Greatest of All Time”! Some are criticizing Gray’s decision to leave claiming it is disrespectful to the other graduates. Either way, Gray has proved she has officially graduated to boss status!

Dad’s Across The Internet Created The Cheerio Challenge And It Rocks!

Cheerio1

(PCM) The latest and arguably the most adorable internet challenge was created by a bunch of dad’s who have now won the internet just in time for Father’s Day.

The #cheeriochallenge was created by a blog called Life Of Dad and consists of asking fathers to stack Cheerio’s cereal on their sleeping babies faces. The challenge has caught on like wildfire and father’s all over are posting adorable images of their babies with stacks of Cheerio’s trying to outdo each other with who can get the highest stack without it falling.

The competition is fierce, as some dad’s have managed to stack as many as 17 cheerio’s on top of their baby’s sleeping heads. Some dad’s are accusing each other of using glue to hold together the stacks of Cheerio’s, but all in all the challenge has been in good fun and spirit. Many also claim that if you lick the Cheerio’s before stacking it helps them stick together or using flavored Apple Cinnamon Cheerio’s assist with making the challenge a bit easier.

Either way it is completely adorable and amazing to see dad’s bonding with their babies just in time for Father’s Day!

Celebrate 20th Anniversary of ‘Riverdance’ with Maggie Darlington

Riverdance_1

(PCM) When Maggie Darlington was a pre-teen she began dancing with the Claddagh School of Irish Dance in California and went on several years later to win the World Irish Dancing Championships, all the while securing her passion and future. Her love for Irish dancing, music, performing and making her mark in the world have all come together in her on-going gig as a lead dancer in the current 20th Anniversary World Tour of “Riverdance” – also known as an international Irish dance phenomenon.

“Riverdance – The 20th Anniversary World Tour,” now playing through June 19 at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, was composed by Bill Whelan,produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan. The riveting show comes directly to North America following a sold out run across Europe and Asia,and this production continues to Virginia and South Carolina.

Drawing on Irish traditions, the combined talents of the performers propel Irish dancing and music into the present day, capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures in an innovative and exciting blend of dance, music and song. Of all the performances to emerge from Ireland – in rock, music, theatre and film – nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of “Riverdance.”

Darlington, now 27, a native from Ventura, California, has been with the show a joyous five years, and believes that the show has given her the perfect foundation for her performing career, a chance to tour the world and deepened her love for the arts.

Q: What are you most excited about for the 20th Anniversary of “Riverdance?”

Maggie Darlington: I would say that it’s just exciting that the show has been around for as long as it has, and that it is looking better than ever. We have an extremely talented group of dancers and I am thrilled to be working with all of them.

Q: Talk about your early career?

MD: I began dancing with the Claddagh School of Irish Dance in California.

Q: I hear you won many awards for Irish dancing?

MD: Yes. I won four North American Championships, two All‐Ireland Championships and in 2007, the World Irish Dancing Championships. In 2010, I performed the lead role in Busch Gardens’ production Celtic Fyre and originated the lead female role in “Battle of the Dance.” After that I joined “Riverdance.”

Q: Were you ever stuck by stage fright?

MD: No, not really. I went to my first world competition when I was 11, so by the time I was competing at age 17 and 18 I was already seasoned at that point. I won the World Irish Dancing Championships in Glasgo,Ireland, at age 18.

Q: Have you ever made friends with someone you were competing with in the dance competitions?

MD: Yes. My best friend now in “Riverdance,” Meghan Lucey, was a competitor at the world championships. She’s part of the “Riverdance”troupe and we are close friends. Previously, I knew her name, what dress she wore and how she placed, but now doing the shows has brought us closer. Now,it’s all about getting to a town or city and saying, ‘Let’s get some coffee because I’m a little bored today.’

Q: This is your fifth year with the show, right?

MD: Yes, I started in 2011 as a troupe dancer in the ensemble and became a lead dancer two years ago in 2014.

Q: What else can you tell me about the current show?

MD: It’s more than it has ever been – it’s not only Irish dancing: Flamingo, Russian, tappers, and more, but the music is a testament to so much. It was written by the same man, and for each aspect he wrote amazing music for the Spanish dancers, performed by Irish musicians. Overall, I can say that the music is amazing!

Q: Since this is the 20th Anniversary, why do you feel it has endured so long?

MD: I would say it has become a classic because it is cultural and it touches on immigration, which we can all identify with since so many of us and our families came here from somewhere else. This is not just a story or style of musical theater. But it is cultural and true to its roots. I would say that it is somewhat infectious and either you like it or you don’t.Most people really seem to like it.

Q: Tell me about your family back home in California.

MD: I have two older sisters and a twin brother.

Q: Is there anyone in the theater or entertainment world?

MD: Nope. My twin brother is getting his PhD in physics at Berkley – so he obviously gravitated toward the other end of the spectrum.

Q: What do your parents do?

MD: My mom is a paralegal with an English degree and my dad is a CPA.

Riverdance--(Thunderstorm)Photographer-Jack-Hartin

Q: Has your family been supportive of your theater/dancing career?

MD: Definitely. My dad is happier now that I am getting paid to dance then when I was competing, but everyone has been amazing.

Q: You have been traveling on and off for five years. How long is the current tour?

MD: Nine months. Some of them have been shorter, like six weeks.

Q: Did this show go to California so you were able to share it with friends and family?

MD: Yes, we were there in December — L.A., Orange County, and San Luis Obispo — and that made it particularly exciting for me.

Q: Do you get tired of life on the road?

MD: Sure, sometimes. But you have to consider the pros and the cons. We’re lucky that we get to sleep in most of the time because our shows aren’t until the evening.

Q: Were there any surprises during this tour?

MD: Yes. I really liked Boise, Idaho, and I was surprised about that was. It’s just a college town, but we really liked the vibe outside,it was so clean, the air was so fresh and we loved the mountains. We were there during perfect weather and had a great time.

Q: You should write a travel blog in your spare time.

MD: My boyfriend and I have thought about that. Isaac is the head of the sound department and we enjoy exploring new places and finding that perfect coffee shop in each town.

Q: What is your advice to up-and-coming performers who want to make this a career?

MD: I would tell any up and coming performers that you need have tough skin and be ready and willing to work hard — whether it’s applying a note from the director, or you’re in rehearsals trying to learn choreography. It’s no longer just your past time but your job. Yes it’s fun,but it takes focus and seriousness as well.

Q: After “Riverdance” what are your dreams, hopes and aspirations?

MD: I’m still trying to figure that out. I love entertainment; but I also love yoga and anything physical. So,we’ll see.

Q: Lastly, why should someone come to the show for the first or subsequent time?

MD: I would say that it’s energetic and joyous. I love the fact that I always see wide smiles on people’s faces during and after the show. The music is uplifting and people like the rhyme energy and style of the dancing. It’s a good time!
