Find people with high expectations and a low tolerance for excuses. They’ll have higher expectations for you than you have for yourself. Don’t flatter yourself that this has much to do with you – this is just who they are. Don’t look for “nice” in these relationships. Look for trust.

Be fearless in front of them with your ideas as many times as they’ll let you

Beauty Dust is very pretty to look at and it tastes like nothing, which is great. Here is what it’s supposed to do: This ancient empiric formula expands beauty through alchemizing elements legendary for their youth preserving, fortifying and tonifying qualities. Glowing supple skin, lustrous shiny hair and twinkling bright eyes are holistically bestowed from the inside out.

I actually first read this as alkalizing meaning effecting pH level, and I was like, OK I guess I understand how that could positively effect your body, but alchemizing means turning elements to gold basically through magic. That lead me to research each ingredient because I know alchemy is not actually happening in my body when I eat this, since alchemy is not real.

In addition to loving beauty and taking care of myself, I also love opening people minds to other paths of self-care, and good marketing and I can honestly say that I use and personally love this product but I’m not sure for which reason.

I think it made me think about it more and really consider why I was choosing to add this to my routine

It poses an interesting question for me on the wellness category – will people be willing to buy in, or does eating something change your “sniff” test on the believe-ability of the claims?

The color is very long lasting and they have an interesting texture that’s like a powder and a cream but neither really. They’re made with pure pigments and oils and will never melt with the warmth of your skin because they don’t contain any waxes. You can literally use them for anything – obviously as eye shadow and liner, but the light shade is a great highlighter, and the red can be used for lip or blush with a little balm.

There’s also a little pouch to store the rollerballs, and a card with different inspirations as to how to blend them on your skin – but it’s foolproof. You can’t make a mess if you mix them all up.

Badger Beard Balm is perfect for the bearded gents in your life (is this everyone? beards are so trending). It is filled with good things such as vitamins A, D, E & F to keep his beard healthy, thicker and cleaner, as well as helping to relieve itchiness as it soothes the skin under the hair.

If you’re looking to get rid of this beard, maybe this is not the right angle for your gifting

Further, no one wants to cuddle with a dirty beard – who knows, maybe you already are and are dying for a nice way to help this problem of yours his. Beard Wash made by Beard Buddy. Started in 2011 in California, all Beard Buddy products are hand crafted by beards for beards. Both founders have large beards of their own to tame, and wanted to do this with organic products – kudos, and cuddles, to them.

Taylor Swift 52-Date Eras Tour Concert Ticket Sale Cancelled by Ticketmaster

Ticketmaster has announced that it will cancel Friday’s planned general public sale for Taylor Swift’s upcoming stadium tour due to a lack of tickets.

The decision was made two days after a presale event crashed the site, leaving many fans without tickets. According to the Associated Press, the ticketing company, two million tickets for The Eras tour next year were sold during presales on Tuesday. The most tickets ever sold on the platform in a single day.

Ticketmaster cancelled Friday’s sale due to “extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory to meet that demand.”

There are still questions about how and how many remaining Taylor Swift tickets will be sold. However, Ticketmaster stated that approximately 1.5 million fans who went through an early verification process known as Verified Fan were invited to purchase tickets, while the remaining 2 million were placed on a waiting list.

According to a company representative, Ticketmaster is not involved in ticket resales for Swift’s concerts.

Swift has had a record-breaking year, having released her latest album “Midnights,” which also set a Billboard record.

The 52-date Eras Tour begins March 17 in Glendale, Arizona, and concludes August 9 with five shows in Los Angeles. International dates will also be announced. Swift is embarking on her first tour since 2018.

However, Taylor Swift fans and families across the country battled long lines and error messages to be the first to reach the checkout cart.

According to Ticketmaster, the site was overwhelmed by both human and bot attacks, resulting in unprecedented traffic. According to the statement, approximately 15% of interactions with the site had issues, including errors that caused people to lose Taylor Swift tickets after waiting in an online queue.

“While it’s impossible for everyone to get tickets to these shows,” the company stated, “we know we can do more to improve the experience, and that’s what we’re focused on.”

Taylor Swift Fans Want Ticketmaster Cancelled

Taylor Swift’s next US concert tour tickets have yet to go on sale to the general public, but many fans hoping to see her in concert have already been disappointed by Ticketmaster.

Nancy Abulmagd, a mother of an 11-year-old daughter and friends, spent hours in a virtual line with thousands of other people, hoping to secure seats for her daughter and friends, only to have the website crash repeatedly and eventually turn her away empty-handed.

And Nancy was one of the lucky ones; she had won a lottery that allowed “verified fans” to participate in a four-day pre-sale before the general public.

“I got so close three or four times, and the website broke; it was agony,” the 41-year-old New Jersey resident says. “It was a deflating experience that messed with your emotions and sucked up your entire day.”

Nancy hoped to obtain Taylor Swift tickets for her 11-year-old daughter and friends.

The company selling the tickets, Ticketmaster, has stated that the issues are due to “historically unprecedented demand” for the singer, who first appeared on the scene in 2006 and has provided a steady stream of hits exploring fame and romantic entanglements.

Midnights, her most recent album, has topped the charts worldwide.

Millions of Swifties, as her fans are known, competed for tickets to her 52-city US tour during the pre-sale, with hundreds of thousands securing seats, according to Ticketmaster.

The company claims that the pre-sale system will help prevent ticket touts – known as scalpers in the United States – and bots from scooping up seats.

However, the process flaws have reignited rage against the company, which has long been accused of abusing its clout in the industry.

In an episode earlier this year, comedian John Oliver called it “one of the most hated companies on the planet,” blaming it for the exorbitant prices, fees, and scarcity of tickets for concerts and other events.

“You’re kind of at their mercy,” Nancy said, adding that Ticketmaster could have better organized the sales given the anticipated high demand for Taylor Swift tickets.

In the 1990s, Pearl Jam expressed concerns about Ticketmaster’s role as the primary ticket seller.

Since then, the company’s power has only grown. It purchased Live Nation in 2010, which operates many of the country’s event venues and has an artist management division.

Democratic lawmakers in the United States, who have called for the merger to be reversed, chimed in again amid the chaos of Taylor Swift’s pre-sale.

“Ticketmaster’s excessive wait times and fees are completely unacceptable, as seen with today’s @taylorswift13 tickets, and are a symptom of a larger problem,” wrote House Competition and Antitrust Committee Chairman David Cicilline. “It’s no secret that Live Nation-Ticketmaster is a monopoly unchecked.”

“Daily reminder that Ticketmaster is a monopoly, that its merger with LiveNation should never have been approved, and that they need to be reigned in,” wrote left-wing congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “Split them up.”

On Wednesday, the Department of Justice did not respond to a request for comment on the Taylor Swift scandal.

Ticketmaster is already subject to government oversight, which was imposed when the LiveNation acquisition was approved.

After regulators discovered that the firm had violated the terms of the agreement, the oversight was extended a few years ago.

Last month, US President Joe Biden, who has expressed concern that monopolies are becoming more common in the economy, stated that his administration would investigate concert ticket fees.

Krista Brown, the senior policy analyst at the American Economic Liberties Project, is part of a coalition of artists and others who called on the government to break up Ticketmaster last month.

She hoped that the outpouring of rage from Taylor Swift’s massive fan base would pressure the administration to act.

“If there were healthy competition in this space, [these issues] would simply not exist, and customers or fans would have other services to turn to,” she said. “You probably wouldn’t have sites crashing… This is what happens when you only have one supplier.”

But whether that will be of any comfort to fans hoping to catch a glimpse of Taylor Swift in concert remains to be seen.

Before the general public can try again, the company is restricting purchases to people who have credit cards from Capital One, the company that is sponsoring Taylor Swift’s tour.

Ticketmaster did not respond to a BBC inquiry about how many tickets were expected to be available.

Swift has added 25 shows to her tour in response to overwhelming demand and has occasionally picked fights with corporate behemoths, and has remained silent on the matter thus far.

Nancy plans to try again as a member of the general public on Friday. However, she is not optimistic.

Dolly Parton Inducted into the Rock "N" Roll Hall of Fame

Dolly Parton was officially inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday night in Los Angeles.”I’m suddenly a rock star!” Dolly Parton stated, “This is an extremely special night for me.

” I’m sure many of you were aware that when they announced my induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I didn’t believe I had done enough to merit it. And I didn’t realize it was about more than that at the time. But I’m incredibly honoured and proud to be here tonight.”

Pink praised Dolly Parton in her acceptance speech, and she later sang “Jolene” alongside Pink, Brandi Carlile, and other inductees Pat Benatar, Simon LeBon of Duran Duran, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, and Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart.

Parton also performed a new song, “Rockin’,” with her house band for the night, the Zac Brown Band. “I’m going to have to earn my way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” she declared, dressed in a black leather costume with red jewels and playing a blues-rock riff on a matching heavy-metal Superstrat. “And you thought I couldn’t do it.”

In addition to Dolly Parton, Eminem, Duran Duran, Lionel Richie, Pat Benatar, Eurythmics, and Carly Simon were among the 2022 entrants. Highlights from the ceremony, which took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, will appear on HBO on November 19 and will be available to watch on HBO Max.

Duran Duran Stumbles at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Lionel Richie took off. Pat Benatar yelled. Duran Duran faltered but remained elegant. Eminem was just Eminem.

The four performers celebrated very differently on Saturday night, but they are all now Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. Carly Simon, Eurythmics, Harry Belafonte, Judas Priest, and Dolly Parton are among those who enthusiastically accepted the prize after initially declining it.

Duran Duran entered the stage and began their 1981 breakthrough song “Girls on Film” as the first act inducted at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, following a stunning address from a shaved-headed Robert Downey Jr.

The raucous audience was there for it, but the music wasn’t. Except for singer Simon Le Bon, whose singing was a cappella, the band was nearly inaudible.

It was joyful, if unlucky, start to a mainly smooth and often victorious evening.

“The glorious spontaneous world of rock ‘n’ roll!” exclaimed Le Bon, 64, as the band halted for a retake.

They returned to full loudness, playing a set that featured “Hungry Like the Wolf” and “Ordinary World,” rapidly reverting to what Downey saw as their core quality: “CSF stands for cool, sophisticated fun.”

Hours later, Lionel Richie brought both chill and warmth to the room, opening his concert with a sparse rendition of his ballad “Hello” that seemed to make him nearly collapse from the weight of the situation.

“His songs are the soundtrack of my life, your life, everyone’s life,” Lenny Kravitz remarked during Richie’s induction.

Richie followed “Hello” with “Easy,” his 1977 smash with the Commodores. When Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl made a surprise appearance to play a guitar solo and swap vocals with Richie, the mood changed from slick to triumphant. This was followed by a singalong, jubilant rendition of 1983′s “All Night Long,” which elicited the most applause of the night.

During his victory speech, Richie slammed critics who accused him of moving too far from his Black origins.

“Rock and roll isn’t a hue,” he explained. “It’s just a sensation.” It’s a feeling. And if we let that attitude permeate the room, it will grow and grow and expand.”

The Eurythmics hit the stage next, performing a soulful, danceable rendition of “Missionary Man” from 1986.

“Well, I was born an original sinner. I was born from original sin,” singer Annie Lennox yelled four hours into the event, bringing the audience to its feet and clapping. It was followed by a spirited performance of their biggest song, “Sweet Dreams.”

Her musical partner, Dave Stewart, later described Lennox as “one of the finest performers, vocalists, and songwriters of all time.”

“Thank you, Dave, for this wonderful trip,” a sobbing Lennox replied.

Eminem was the outlier, as he has been throughout his career. He was the only hip-hop musician among the inductees, the only one whose heyday occurred after the 1980s, and he added an edge to the evening that was otherwise lacking outside of Judas Priest’s heavy metal stylings.

He also pushed the guest star game to new heights. He brought on Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler to sing the chorus of “Dream On” for 2003’s “Sing for the Moment,” which samples the Aerosmith classic, after opening briefly with 1999’s “My Name Is.” Then he brought Ed Sheeran to sing his verse from Eminem’s 2017 hit “River” as rain fell on the stage.

“I’m probably not supposed to be here tonight for a couple of reasons,” Eminem remarked as he accepted the award, wearing a black hoodie. “I know one. I’m a rapper, and here is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”

He is only the 10th hip-hop musician in the Hall of Fame, with over 300 members.

He was inducted by Dr. Dre, his producer and mentor, whom he credits with saving his life.

The night, however, was defined by 1980s hitmakers.

In her induction speech, Sheryl Crow observed, “Pat always dug into the deepest part of herself and came roaring out of the speakers.”

Benatar, recognized alongside her longtime musical collaborator and husband Neil Giraldo, took the stage with him and immediately demonstrated her power.

“We are young!” exclaimed the 69-year-old as she soared through a rendition of 1983’s “Love is a Battlefield.”

Inductees who did not attend the ceremony included Duran Duran guitarist Andy Taylor, who has been battling advanced prostate cancer for four years, the 95-year-old Belafonte, and Simon, who lost sisters Joanna Simon and Lucy Simon, both vocalists, to cancer on back-to-back days last month.

Carly Simon was nominated for the first time this year, more than 25 years after becoming eligible. Olivia Rodrigo, 60 years Simon’s junior and by far the night’s youngest performer, played “You’re So Vain,” Simon’s hallmark tune.

Janet Jackson emerged in a black costume with a large mound of hair atop her head, duplicating the cover of her breakout album “Control,” as she inducted writer-producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who worked on that and many other recordings with her.

When the candidates were released in May, Parton “respectfully” rejected them, stating that it didn’t seem appropriate for her to take a slot as a true country artist. She was persuaded otherwise and ended up being the headliner on Saturday night.

“I’m a rock star now!” she said as she took her award. “This is going to be a very, very, very special night.”

Parton stated that she would have to earn her seat retrospectively.

She vanished and reappeared moments later, dressed in black leather, holding an electric guitar and performing a song she had made just for the occasion.

“I’ve been rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rockin’ rock

On her country hit “Jolene,” she capped the night by leading an all-star jam with her fellow inductees. Le Bon, Benatar, and even Judas Priest’s Rob Halford all sang a stanza.

“This is a star-studded stage,” Parton stated. “In the city, I feel like a hillbilly.”
