I Like Your Flaws I like how you mispronounce words sometimes, how you fumble and stammer and stutter looking for the right ones to say and the right ways to say them.

I appreciate your ability to get inappropriately angry as much as I appreciate your willingness to apologize afterward. I like how you can’t dance, how you have pedestrian taste in music, how the worst song on every album is your favorite.
Lippenstift: Werbung nimmt den Mund zu voll - Mode&Beauty - derStandard.at › Lifestyle Wien - Wie ein Test in der aktuellen Ausgabe "Konsument" zeigt, sind Lippenstiftfarben oft wesentlich kurzlebiger als in der Reklame angegeben: Nur zwei von zwölf geprüften Produkten hielten den Werbeaussagen stand. Am besten schnitten noch Kombiprodukte aus Lippenfarbe und Pflegegloss ab - sie halten zumindest acht Stunden, also rund einen Arbeitstag. Die Lebensdauer von klassischen Mono-Lippenstiften war im Vergleich dazu nur etwa halb so lang. Das erfreulichste Ergebnis: Schadstoffe wie Blei oder Nickel wurden in keinem der Produkte gefunden. Kombiprodukte vs. 25 Probandinnen schickte die deutsche Stiftung Warentest aus, um zwölf ausgewählte Lippenstifte eine Woche lang auf ihre Eigenschaften zu prüfen. Im Test zeigte sich allerdings eine deutlich kürzere Haltbarkeit als in den Werbebotschaften versprochen wurde. Gut muss nicht teuer sein Ein weiteres zentrales Ergebnis der Untersuchung: Ein "guter" Lippenstift muss nicht unbedingt teuer sein.

The 20 Greatest Motivational Quotes Of All Time I was playing about on Twitter the other day when I noticed an exchange about Life Coaching between two people I vaguely know. One person had made a comment (and I paraphrase) “Life Coaches are psychotherapists that can’t be bothered to finish their training” As you can imagine I had to have my say and I was told by the person in question that they managed to learn all they needed to learn about self development from reading blogs and furthermore nobody needed to hire a Life Coach. This exchange had me thinking for the millionth time, “There is no how it is, only how it is for you” 1. 2. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.
