Boycotting Makeup

Folks, we know that today’s society is basically just a soup of toxic, microplastic and hormone disrupting chemicals waiting for your body to eventually weaken so they may target your spirit and reduce all of us into unthinking, unseeing human biomass, good for nothing but slaving for wages we immediately turn around and spend. You know that, I know that, heck, my grandma knows that, I tell her every day.

We have to do what we can to fight the powers that be in their crusade to turn us into lumps of undifferentiated jelly, and our first step in that is eliminating our reliance on makeup. I’m sorry to say this, ladies, but the chemicals in most common types of makeup is a horrifying mixture of toxic chemicals, not fit to put on the animals they test them on.

According to this article from simply organic beauty, cosmetic products with these harmful chemicals are pervasive:

“Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (or EDCs) can be one of the most difficult chemicals to avoid in beauty products. They cleverly elude most ingredient lists by hiding within a product’s packaging or an ingredient itself…

According to the UK’s BreastCancer.Org, an endocrine disruptor is any chemical that can interfere with normal hormone functions in humans or animals. While there are naturally occurring types found in plants, such as soy (known as phytoestrogens), most endocrine-disrupting compounds come from synthetic chemicals and can be avoided.

There’s seemingly no end to the adverse health impacts of endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

Also known as EDCs, these tricky chemicals can imitate hormones and destroy others while creating internal signaling issues which causes premature cell death. Endocrine disruptors have also been proven to accumulate in hormone-producing organs, resulting in organ malfunctions and irreversible damage.

Permanent damage, folks! These people should be in jail, but instead they live the high life, boozing it up with the Hollywood celebrity and fashion crowds. Pretty annoying!

Our alternative is for you to look into one of two options: Either going no makeup at all, or going with a more permanent option that does not use the dangerous chemicals that typical cosmetics do. Enter our favorite permanent makeup company: Lift.

Lift Permanent Makeup is making the lives of women all across Orange County infinitely easier (and safer!) by offering a number of different permanent makeup and beauty care options, including eyebrow blading and permanent eyeliner. These girls are not only saving themselves a lot of time and stress by always looking ‘done up’, but they’re saving themselves a lot of problems with potential harmful chemicals and endocrine disruptors in their usual cosmetic products as well!

There are harmful chemicals, pesticides, and poisons all around us, in our food, in our water. The best we can do to fight for the health of our minds and bodies is to limit our exposure to these products of industrial society as much as possible, while still maintaining a normal life. Lift Permanent makeup helps you do that and more, with elegant and beautiful solutions to your cosmetic needs.

Should You Litigate or Mediate?

When it comes to divorce, most people imagine the absolute worst to happen legally and emotionally. We hear about terrible divorces from our friends and the news, and we see stories in movies about heartbreak that typically involve a couple’s legal combat in the courtroom.

“Marriage Story” starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver has been praised by divorce lawyers for its realistic portrayal of real dynamics of litigation. In the movie, we learn that the legal system of divorce makes it difficult to reach a true win-win. It illustrates how divorce litigation is anything but just paperwork and facts. It shows why people who used to love each other eventually pursue the course of damaging one another’s reputation and credibility as much as possible in order to attain the settlement they are seeking.

As such, audiences come away from the movie with being unable to pinpoint either person as the real villain or hero. Rather, the characters are recognized as being complicated and messy people who love each other but do not belong together. Despite the couple reaching many points of anger and exhaustion, it is evident that at no point does the couple ever truly hate one other. Rather, they are forced to their breaking point because of how challenging it is to navigate the difficult and convoluted process of divorce litigation. Moreover, we see how the combative nature of the litigation prompts lawyers to act overtly mean and invasive in order to win.

As you know, we write for the conspiracists and skeptics. We like to consider new and better alternatives to the norm. So this article is to question the narrative of divorce being the awful bureaucratic experience that it is commonly portrayed as. What if there was another way? A more friendly, fair, and communicative way?

Consider mediation. When it comes to choosing between a mediator or a family law attorney, most people prefer mediation because it is less antagonistic. Many people suffer physical health consequences because of the stress that arises through litigation in public court. In mediation, a neutral third party facilitates a resolution communicated by and agreed upon by both parties privately. Unlike a lawyer whose objective is to win a case, a mediator’s goal is to bring both parties to an agreement to what really matters: the division of assets, liabilities, and custody schedules.

McNamee Mediations is a divorce and family mediator who has been recognized as an expert Newport Beach, California. Colleen McNamee is unlike any divorce mediator we’ve reviewed. When it comes to divorce, most people don’t expect to fall in love again right before it becomes final. But some of Colleen’s clients have even reconciled during mediation instead of finalizing their divorce! She has over forty 5-star reviews on Yelp, which is astounding!

Mediation might be the right fit for you if you are looking for an alternative to litigation. If you are considering a divorce, you can give McNamee Mediations to inquire about their services.
