For The Man In Your Life

Give your man the pleasure of not going the the unpleasant burn after shaving. Poor men suffer with those harsh highly scented and full of alcohol aftershaves. It has a nice cooling sensation when applied right after shaving. Its all natural ingredients with no burning alcohol. It goes on cool and dries fast.

It is made with pure aloe vera gel, vegetable glycerin, witch hazel which is a nice astringent, coconut oil to moisturize dry skin. This is a must have if you are tired using aftershaves that burn you face.

Stop by our Artfire Studio or our Etsy Shop and pick yourself up one of these for the man in your life. He should have to suffer with the burn of market aftershaves.

Time To Move On

The passing of Michael Jackson has been a shock to everyone including myself. He has been a big part of my life as a child and as a adult. The day before Michael had passed away, I was watching his video "You Rock My World" on Youtube. Then after I finished watching and singing with the video, I said to myself, "What a sad day the world will be when this man dies". The next day June 25th is when he did die. Man did I feel bad.

Before his passing, every now and then I watch some of his videos and they always make me smile and want to just get up and start dancing. You Rock My World was one of his latest videos. Then I was in such a good mood I wanted to watch some of the other videos such as "Remember The Time", Thriller, Smooth Criminal. It is hard to just pick out just one of his songs when so many of them were good. I remember the song "Childhood" and I just recently heard it on the radio and never really paid attention to the lyrics. It was heartbreaking.

The songs that I think were just underrated are "Who is it", and "Stranger in Moscow".

His death was a shock to me and I am sure to most others too. I never really sat down and cried but I did feel a sense of loss of a man that I grew up with and my son had grown up with. Just because you never met someone, doesn't mean you can't feel sorrow for them. When we lost a lot of our service men and women in Iraq, I feel the sorrow and pain of their families. Michael Jackson has been part of many of our lives and we all take his passing in different ways. No I never met him and I wished that I did but maybe in another life I will get the chance to meet the most famous entertainer and most loving person, soft spoken and giving person in the world.

Rest in Peace Michael. I will always remember the times.

One of my favorite holidays during the summer months. I love July 4th. Time for barbeque, fireworks and spending time with the family. My husband and I decided to barbeque this weekend just the two of us. We would have prefer to have some family come visit but unfortunately, no one is able to come. My son and my mother came to visit a couple of weeks ago and it was such a delight to have them see our home. We have been living in our new home now for a year as of June 30th and they were our first visitors. It would have been so nice to see them this weekend as well.

I love watching the fireworks display. We usually can see them from our bedroom window where we use to live but now that we have moved, we will not be able to see them. When I lived in Philadelphia (which was several yrs ago) My son and I use to head down to Penns Landing waterfront and see the fireworks display up close. Boy that was such a treat but dealing with the crowds afterwards was a mess. Taking a car there was not a wise choice so we would always bus it or take the El to the waterfront.

( A view from Penns Landing in Phila) Its just beautiful there. You always get a nice breeze right near the water. My son and I use to take a bike ride every Sunday during the summer early in the morning. Gosh those where the days.

This is how crowded it can get during the 4th of July and special events that are held on the waterfront. The streets are packed with people. You can barely move. Over the years it has gotten more and more difficult to even get to Penns Landing because of the amount of people that come there just for the fireworks. Penns Landing has expanded and have so much going on there now since I lived there.

The fireworks display would be on a barg in the Delaware river between Camden NJ and Philadelphia so both sides of the river can see it.This is such an awesome shot of the fireworks. Many thanks to willow2k for allowing me to use this photo.

Now that I am living in northern VA I don't get to see many fireworks unless I go into DC or other areas that are having fireworks. I will just remember the times I shared with my son going to Penns Landing in Phila which were the best moments of my son's childhood that brings a smile to my face.

I want to wish you all a happy and safe July 4th weekend.
