Friday Five II

1. YOLO and Twizzle

I learned these are two actual moves competed in the Olympics.

The YOLO flip was invented by Iouri Podladtchikov; he landed it in Sochi to win the gold for Switzerland and dethrone two-time Olympic champion Shaun White.

Less likely to be deadly but more difficult to do in unison while wearing sequins, the twizzle is an ice dancing move. Of course it was performed wonderfully by Meryl and Charlie for the gold! USA! 

2. "Kim of Queens"

Some compete in the Olympics, others pageants, me neither, but this is still my new favorite show! The only shows I get to watch are those that repeat in the wee hours of the morning after I get off work. This is one of them on Lifetime. I love this lady; I want her to be my life coach. I've never done a beauty pageant, but I'm hooked on this show. If you like "Dance Moms," you'll love "Kim of Queens."

3. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

I'm hooked. I'm obsessed. I got this in my Birchbox several months ago but had not tried it because it looked complicated. I'm so glad I made myself use it. It is fantastic! Smells like a spa, not messy, surprisingly not complicated, and makes my skin look and feel fabulous. It comes with a muslin cloth that helps exfoliate. I plan to buy the toner and moisturizer that are part of the company's three-step system.

4. Wedding Etiquette

5. You be the judge

The latest in a string of bad press for Lululemon - the see through pants controversy, the controversial comments made by the founder blaming women's bodies for pants being too sheer, his resignation as chairman. I don't own anything made my Lululemon, so I don't really have a dog in this fight.
