2009 Château La Grave à Pomerol Trigant de Boisset

Keeping an eye on potential fire hazards. This is a stunner from the J.P. Moueix (of Pétrus fame) portfolio. Tons of bold fruit - plum and cassis - on the nose along with porcini mushrooms, leather (both new and used), and horse. Traditional in style on the palate with less mushroom but lots of plum, cassis, and leather. Very, very nice.

Stephen Amell rant...

So last night was my first nocking point party and it was also my first real ‘fan’ event. I went into this not really knowing what to expect. I was gonna go with a friend but decided this probably wasn’t really her thing and she’s never seen his show or knew who he was so my mom was my plus one. (Thanks mom) that was entertaining educating her about Captain throughout the night.
My only disappointment was that, I went into this thinking we could take a picture with him, but because they were filming Dudes being Dudes in Wine Country, they weren’t allowing pics or videos (people did anyway) but I just didn’t want to put him on the spot with that so I didn’t ask.
Back to Stephen…while we were waiting in line outside he walked in with Mavi and his wife and waved and then about 10 minutes later he came back out and walked through the line and said hi and talked to everyone which I thought was really awesome. And then went inside before they let us in. (Can I just say that man is a beautiful man, good god)
Inside we went through all the wine and had some ciders and everyone sort of mingled with each other. Stephen mingled with as many people as he could throughout the night. I stood right next to him a couple of times but never really got a word in and I was still feeling like I didn’t want to bother him with a picture. He handles the overtly aggressive woman really well lol. (There weren’t a ton but a couple times he kind of slowly said okay I’ve gotta move on and peaced out.) that was one thing I did notice is he would be standing having a conversation and someone would ask for a picture and of course he’d say yes anyway and after a couple of people he’d leave that area. But I was thoroughly impressed with him as a human being. Incredibly nice guy. Anyway throughout the night I kind of missed my shot for a hi/hug like 5 different times so I just let it be.
Brother Sal is a super talented dude. A guy proposed to his gf and then Stephen helped him sing “crazy love”. He didn’t end up doing a q&a on stage but he did season 4 reactions so far (OH MY GOD IM SO EXCITED) and thanked everyone for coming out and he and Drew talked about filming Duded being Dudes. Drew is also a super nice guy. He walked around a lot and was the most generous when pooring us wine lol.
The last song they did was Come Together by the Beatles which was one of my favorite parts of the night. Stephen and his crew were up on the side stage and everyone was singing along. At the end of the party people kind of crowded around him and were trying to get pics but he had to leave. By then I literally just said screw it… “Stephen I’ve missed my shot several different times tonight. I just want to say hi and get a hug.” And he was like “sure. Of course. Thank you so much.” YALL SHOULD BE PROUD. I KEPT MY COOL LOOKING INTO THOSE BEAUTIFUL EYES OF HIS. AND TV AND PICTURES DONT DO HIM JUSTICE. THE MAN IS RIPPED. HOLY HELL. HE ALSO GIVES REALLY GOOD HUGS. ANYWAY FOR THE SPLIT SECOND I GOT TO TALK TO HIM HE HAD A SMILE ON HIS FACE AND MADE SURE TO MAKE EYE CONTACT AND WAS JUST A KIND HUMAN BEING. I’m happy I ended my night with a hug. That was good enough for me if I couldn’t get a picture.
Overall it was such a fun night. Totally worth going to if yall haven’t gone already.

Side note: I’m sad I missed out on seeing him after he left the party. I saw several post of people who met him outside after the party :( We also didn’t really get any Drunk!Steve…idk if it’s cause his wife was there but I wish we could’ve

IM HERE RANTING ABOUT HIM AND I JUST WANNA HANG OUT WITH HIM AGAIN!!!!

Selcas/Eyeliner tutorial :

Anime Makeup Tutorial :

1. cover upper eyelid with white eyeshadow;add brown eyeshadow to the bottom eyelids.

2. apply white eyeshadow to brighten up the eyes.

3.  extend the eyeliner line to make your eyes appear bigger .

4. draw a line tapering slightly downwards and create an almond shape.

5. draw a thin small line to the bottom of the bottom eyeliner . optional draw a small thin line to extend your natural crease .

6. use an brown pencil and draw above your crease an round crease so it can give that anime effect , also you can add a bit of red eyeshadow.

7. finish .


Color/Design
 When I first put these on they were really shocking because they were very bright. They won’t look dark grey even on dark eyes light mine. They’re just as bright in the pictures as they are in person. Sometimes in certain lighting they can appear slightly bluish. You can still see these from afar and look pretty natural at a distance. The closer you look, the more obvious they are.


Enlargement

This definitely enlarges but because of the natural pattern, it doesn’t feel as if it’s too big to be a natural size. Still very dolly, but a bit scary.

ComfortThis is the unfortunate part. When I wear them, I can constantly feel them. They’re not as thin as my other 15.0mm lenses so I think that’s why. It’s not a feeling I can’t handle and it doesn’t hurt. I’m just aware that I’m wearing them. Because of this, I only prefer to wear these for a short time and would wear them for things like pictures and cosplaying.As for drying, I do remember having to use drops quite a bit but I’m not sure if it’s because my eyes were drying or it was because the lenses themselves were just kinda annoying feeling.
Over All

In the end, I’m still happy I tried these because I really love the vibrant lenses and I hope I can find something similar that’s more comfortable and a bit smaller.

Moving now finally to the wig review x3

Cosplay Wig - Gugure! Kokkuri san /Inugami

Type100% heat resistant fibre
Wig ColorRed Wine
Wig Length100cm

selcas :

I super love the material of this wig as it is able to resist heat and is super soft which allows you to create many other styles too. The wig base comes with a back clasp which allows a firm and snuggly fit around your head and it ensures that the wig doesn’t slip and slide off throughout the day.

I really love this wig because of its thickness, color accuracy and its quality. For me, this is the best brand of wig i experience.

Thickness 5/5
Softness 4/5
Color:  5/5
Quality 5/5

The wig itself is quite soft which is why it looks quite natural in photos. It is also quite easy to comb through to get rid of tangles and knots that may occur and it is also heat resistant but in my case I didn’t want to ruin the beautiful curls that this wig already has.

That’s all for today thank for reading my review , sorry if it was too long ;o;

reverse jesus

i bought a four pack of tiny wine bottles and when i brought them home they all turned out to be water, someone emptied the bottles and replaced them with tap water

i couldnt even return them because you cant return alcohol apparently so heed my advice:

check the packaging on your little wine bottles before you purchase them it might be water, as if some shitty reverse jesus has been there
