10 Beauty Tips:
  1. Prevent frizz and speed up your drying time by using paper towel to wring water from your hair after shower. The paper won’t create as much friction as a towel, so you end up less frizzy. Also a paper towel absorbs more water than a cloth towel, speeding up your drying time.
  2.  When tweezing, make sure you soften your skin before you start by dabbing a cotton ball soaked in warm water or cream. When tweezing, do so in the direction of your hair’s growth.
  3. To stretch your hair color you can use DIY home glaze. Glazes fill holes and rough spots in your hair shafts, helping smooth your mane and putting moisture back into your hair. This  will keep your color shiny, bright and  lasting longer.
  4. Get moisture back into your skin in half the time by using hair conditioner to moisturize your hair and body. Just massage it in head to toe in the shower, rinse and dry. The conditioner will moisturize just as well as body lotion.
  5. If you run out of makeup remover, use body lotion or Olive oil with a cotton ball  to remove makeup. It also works well on tough mascara.
  6. Get more for your money, by applying styling products 10 minutes before you style. Whether you are curling, straightening, or doing an updo, applying product 10 minutes in advance helps it fully absorb into your hair.
  7. Refreshen makeup in a snap. Lightly mist your face with toner, then pat with a tissue. Finish up with a dusting of loose powder to seal everything back into place.
  8. A quick way to hide new growth or grey hair if you dont have time to get a color retouch. Simple use mascara if you have dark hair. For blondes or redheads try dusting your roots with eye shadow or bronzing powder then seal with hair spray.
  9. To get smoother result when shaving legs, wait until after your shower to shave. The steam softens hairs for closer shave and smoother results.
  10. Two tricks to stop flyaway hair. Spray Static Guard on your comb or brush.  Or you can yous a dryer sheet on your hair.

Fishing

 

Through the Wire with African-American Pro Angler—Torica Whitty

Since its humble beginnings in the late 19th century—the professional sport of bass fishing, which involves the angling of a rod with hopes of catching a black bass (the second most sought-after game fish in the United States)—has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry, which was once entirely represented by Caucasians—that is, until 1976—when Alfred “The Frog Master” Williams became the first African-American male Pro Angler to fish in a B.A.S.S. pro event; and in 1984—Williams became the first African-American to fish the Bassmaster Classic. He courageously broke through bass fishing’s color barrier, and ever since then—a small door has been opened for minorities to compete in the competitive outdoor world of bass fishing.
