Sexual Assault
Awareness & Prevention Month

It's April
I'm sure most of you know that
But I'm sure quite a few of my lovely reader's don't know 
that April is Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention month
I have only seen one post about this topic
on Ms. Morgan's blog read it here
I have gone back and forth about whether to write anything 
at all about this topic
seeing that it is a sensitive one for me
and usually not talked about at all
But here I am in my living room
halfway watching Army Wives 
writing a post about sexual assault awareness
Lets start with statistics
Read all of them here
In case you didn't click the link 
here are two I think we should all know
Every two minutes, someone in the U.S. is assaulted, also
97% of rapists will never spend a day in jail
those numbers are staggering to me
and to be blatantly honest piss me the F* off


Here are a few links that can help

The national sexual assault hotline
1-800-656-HOPE

Alright ya'll now I'm going to ask that all of you 
simply consider
linking up with me to raise awareness for sexual assault awareness
and prevention month
The linky tool is below
...Lets spread the word...

Clarisonic or not?

Hello bloggie friends I started a new job last week, one of the perks?
 I received a make-up consultation to demonstrate the
Commitment to customer service the company tries to provide
Great for me
 I visited the stores Estee Lauder counter and received an amazing facial
 with??
The Clarisonic
I will tell you I was pretty sold on this product immediately after using it
 It made an instance difference for my skin, and really gets a deep down clean
Not to mention it feels like your getting a massage
 I WAS sold until I saw this youtube video a comparison
between Clarisonic Mia $119.00 and Olay Pro X $24.99 (Drugstore.com)
