Jewelry stores should partner with tattoo parlors. Permanent wedding band that can’t be lost or taken off. Spouses will no longer have trust issues. It also is great for occupations that don’t allow rings or that require gloves, like healthcare.
Mind Your Own Beeswax
A few months ago I picked up a jar of Rodial Bee Venom eye cream. If you don’t know anything about bee venom it has some reactive properties such as death, as it technically is a chemical weapon designed by God. After you have washed your face, before your serum, put on the bee venom. It might tingle or even sting. Bee venom stinging… ground breaking. hahahahaha. Seriously, beeee careful not to get it in your eyes. It is in a different form that an actual bee sting, so hopefully you don’t die. If you are allergic to bees then probably not a good idea to try this “nature’s botox”. Of course a lot of people say they can’t tell a difference, since I always look young — but I certainly can tell. The puffiness under my eyes is gone and those lines around my mouth are gone also. In all fairness it has been almost 3 months since using it and it is way cheaper than a botox treatment, which can be several hundreds of dollars. I also used it on my elevens. What are the elevens? They are the 2 lines that appear between your eyebrows when you frown. Thankfully the elevens are also gone. So far so good. I’ll keep y’all posted.
Well She Hulk is officially over. I sat through all 9 badly written episodes and the finale didn’t let you down with more bad writing. I’ll let you sit through the bad writing and acting and suffer through it like I did. Better watch it to the end, for the secret scene. And in case you missed it, President Biden pardoned every crime for cannabis under 2 ounces. Wow. Yes, it is for real. Just give it time and it will no longer be a crime to have a plant.
I was not paid for an endorsement.
Stop saying “It is what it is.”
Instead say, “I am extremely disappointed in the outcome of this situation and I understand there is nothing in my power to change it. So it is pointless to complain and bitch about it. So I will move on with my life and look to the positive things in life that I can control.”
Pointing out the obvious and displaying your shitty attitude just makes you look like an ugly person, so don’t do it.
The Hand of the King
Hello my Game of Thrones friends! If you were unaware there has been a new show called “House of the Dragon” which basically is Game of Thrones in a different time with all new characters. When the show first came out on HBO back in the day, you literally had to have some shitty cable company and pay for that extra channel. I had Dish Network back in the day and HBO was not one of my electives, so I never got into it. Jump back to today … with high speed internet and the evolution of “apps”. Now you can pick and choose what you want to watch without some stupid contract with clunky equipment. I will admit, it took several times watching Game of Thrones (GOT) to finally understand it. I use the Vudu app and purchase all my shows there so I can stream them to my devices. It is a win win. So anyway if you are a fan, you know that the title I used is an actual title of a person in the show. I would guess it is made up since I had never heard of it. At any rate, it is a power position and an interesting title/topic.
If you are a long time fan/reader then you know that I took a DNA test from CRI Genetics, and using their technology found out that I am literally an heir of royalty from China and Japan, AND I share DNA lineage with Princess Diana. So I think it is fair that I can look at my own hand and call it “The hand of the king”. On my right hand I wear yellow gold rings with rubies and diamonds and on my left hand I wear white gold and silver, with diamonds. I discovered that back in the day, kings and queens wore diamonds, rubies and sapphires. I knew I had good taste. Actually the ruby is my birthstone. The one rock that encompasses and amplifies love. As a guy who is now 49, my hands would say otherwise. I’ve been putting lotion on my hands as long as I can remember, and it shows. No age spots, liver spots, saggy skin, blue veins. Nope nope nope. I read somewhere that when you drive you should use your left hand and keep it at the 6 o’clock position upside down so you don’t expose your hands to the UV sunlight, … or wear gloves. If you have sunscreen you should really get in the habit of putting it on daily. I have an identical twin who does nothing for his skin and it shows. You can Google search twin skin differences and see how bad the sunlight is for your skin.
And back to the actual hand of the king … the new show, just like the GOT is slow, semi-boring, a lot of talking and not a lot of action. Kids probably won’t like it, and if you are new to the series, meaning you never saw the first 8 seasons of GOT, you may or may not like it. Without really ruining it, there is some king who needs an heir. His wife has a baby boy and they both die. NOW who will rule if the king dies? Argue about it back and forth. That is about all that has really happened. Trust me, it gets even more boring after that. I’m trying REALLY hard to like it. Oh yeah, big scary fire breathing dragons.
So far I am not sure if I would recommend it to a new viewer. But hey, you do what you want, you are your own person. Speaking of boring dumb movies, the new Rings of Power, a take off of the Lord of the Rings came out on Amazon Prime. Twice I started watching it and I still haven’t finished. This is not your Green Lantern ring show. You really have to be an original fan of the Lord of the Rings. Yes, it is slow and boring.
She Hulk has 3 episodes out on Disney+ now and so far it is entertaining. The acting in MoonKnight was better. If you have Disney+ you should watch it. It’s cute.
49 and Fabulous!
So this title was in reference to the Sex and the City episode where Carrie is on the cover of some New York magazine and she is “40 and Fabulous?” with a question mark. If you didn’t see the episode, she was out all night long, had zero sleep and looked like she was rode hard and put up wet to dry. Yeah, that bad. So this picture I took of myself on the airplane and due to the natural light I really liked it and decided to put it on here. I have always said that age is a state of mind, how old or young do you want me to be? I think as long as you look good and feel good, it doesn’t really matter how old or young you are. It matters how your brain acts and reacts to situations. So anyway, I will be turning 49 on Saturday and I have to say I am pretty happy with the results. If you want great looking skin then you have to take care of it. Some people take better care of their automobiles than they are with their own body. If you are new to skincare then just start with the basics and wash your face on a regular basis with a good exfoliator. 111SKIN is my favorite brand, and if you can afford it try out some of their products based on your needs. I also recommend taking a collagen supplement daily. I like Dose & Co. You can get collagen almost everywhere in a powder form. I put it in my coffee. Collagen is the glue that holds your cells together. It also helps your skin stay tight. The weird thing about skin, is it has a cellular memory. It stretches and moves and changes shape. But have you ever wondered why some people’s face is shaped one way and others are … well, less than perfect? I wonder if it comes down to the very first cell that became you, and then divided and multiplied until it was a human. Crazy thought right? What if that cell was bad from the beginning? Because mom or dad was drunk or on drugs? Malnutrition? What if …sounds impact the cell reproduction? So moms who listen to classical music when the baby is a fetus might have a higher chance in life than those who didn’t? So anyway, people ask me all the time what do I do to look so young? Good skincare products, drink tea, take collagen, stay out of the sun. I also recommend you watch some YouTube videos from Qoves Studio. It is a beauty podcaster channel. Very enlightening in my opinion. Things like high cheekbones can be attained by mewing. A defined jawline can be enhanced or surgically corrected. Having a double chin, or having it removed makes a huge difference. I found that just losing some weight can make a huge difference in your overall face shape. Watch a few videos. You’ll start mewing too.
So my trip to Vegas was also sort of my birthday getaway.
As hot as it was in June I know it is even hotter in July. Everyone has a different experience, some better than others. Where you are in life, your financial situation and most important — your excellent credit. When you have great credit and you can afford it, the American Express Platinum Card makes your travel easier, more pleasant and a delightful experience. You get free upgrades, access to airport lounges, and when you go to fancy hotels you get food and beverage credits. So you can stay at nicer hotels and pay the same or less than some of the other hotels. AND when you use their cards, you earn points for every dollar you spend, which can be used as credits towards those hotels. It really is a win win. This past trip I stay at TWO hotels, a fun trick I learned from another YouTuber. Bellagio was amazing. I could stay a whole week there. New York was nice, but not the “real” New York feeling that I was really hoping for … big huge floor to ceiling windows … uh, not. Great to visit, but probably wouldn’t stay there again. It’s cheap so lots of people stay there. The elevators are always crowded and in my opinion, less than ideal. The rooms were super small, only 350 square feet. Don’t forget that cool roller coaster runs til midnight and you get to hear screams all night long. Not exactly ideal and there is not much for sound-proofing. So if you do stay there, make it one of those “crash and burn” situations where you don’t care and just want a bed. The occasional scream or noisy hallway doesn’t bother you. If you are military you get upgraded to the pearl level, which only gives you free parking … an $18 value at each casino owned by MGM. Since I have been to Vegas many times, I didn’t have the need or desire to walk the entire strip to see each casino. Instead I opted for a Hertz rental car and I drove to each casino. Parking was free and it was blistering hot. Last trip I spent more in Uber fees so this time I decided having your own transportation for 5 was a great idea. Also there is this whole waiting thing when you are reliant upon Uber. If you are not a pearl level member you can get the MGM branded MasterCard and then you will automatically be upgraded to pearl level. There is no annual fee, so there are ways to get around paying for parking. If you eat at the MGM hotel buffets, you can jump the line and enter through the VIP entrance. I ate at the Bellagio buffet twice. Once for breakfast and then again the next day for lunch/dinner. I love how they have such small portions so you can try a little bit of everything.
Thor came out this past weekend, and I think that all of the Thor movies are pretty worthless high impact entertainment. I had to watch the YouTube spoilers to figure it all out. Like, why bring Jane Foster into the movie just to tell you she has cancer? It’s in the comic that way. Oh. Didn’t read the Thor comic. And “Thor” is a title, like Valkyrie. That’s why Jane is dressed like Thor. When she is Jane she has short brown hair. When she is a Thor, she has long blonde curls. Eventually it will make it to Disney+, but it you can’t wait that long, it will keep you cool in the theaters for a couple of hours.
American Express Rewards points can be transferred easily to your SkyMiles account to be used as credits for upgrades. The Delta Reserve gives you priority boarding and free luggage. There are reasons to have both, if you have the means.
The Million Roses
Have you heard about The Million Roses company? I recently saw one of their products watching “Selling Sunset” on Netflix and I was intrigued. I looked them up online and found that they cultivate and grow these beautiful roses and preserve them for up to 3 years. So wow. Now they are a little pricey, but considering their shelf life compared to fresh cut roses, it isn’t that bad. It just so happened to be my mother’s birthday so I decided a box of roses would brighten anyone’s day. If you are looking for an awesome gift, then I highly recommend you give some of these to a lucky someone.
I was not paid for an endorsement. If you sign up for their text messages you will get a 15% off (one time use) coupon/discount. Do that before you buy.
Look 10+ Years Younger
Hey guys – welcome back to my site/page! So you are probably wondering what I did to look so much younger. A really simple thing that guys (and girls) can do to look younger is to have your eyebrows professionally done. I’ll admit that I had/have an eyebrow “thing”. Meaning I am sort of a snot when it comes to judging people’s brows. And if I have ever mentioned your brows to you … well you probably deserved it. And hopefully with a little gentle guidance you went and did something about it. Plucked, tweezed, went to a salon. Some people are just genetically lucky when it comes to eyebrows and brow ridge. Others have to put a little work and effort into it. When I was young and in my 20’s this is what my eyebrows looked like. Over time, mens’ eyebrows do one of two things … grow crazy wild, or lose them all together. And sadly, some guys eyebrows turn white, which really makes them look older. So a very simple, and semi pain-free experience is to have your eyebrows microbladed. Individual hair lines are “tattooed” on your brows. Does it hurt? How does getting your teeth scraped at the dentist sound? Well that’s how is sounds, but it doesn’t feel like it. If it starts to hurt just say “Ow.” and she will put more numbing medicine on you. But literally it is just a few minutes of pain. My tattoo hurt more. Braces hurt more. So if you are in Colorado and you want to look younger and improve your looks you can call Maria at 720-779-4270 Palace of Aesthetics in Arvada. She said anyone I referred could have the same Groupon price of $160. Just mention my name and you are gold. I gave her nice tip since the normal price is $500. I know right? But now I can wash my face and go swimming without worrying about my eyebrows washing off. Ladies know what I am talking about. Plus, fuller thick eyebrows makes you look younger.
So do you want to hear my eyebrow story? I guess now that I have semi-permanent eyebrows I can share my story. Back in junior high school I was sitting in math class and I overheard one of my friends making fun of this girl who had horrendous eyebrows. It was like the first thing you noticed about her and immediately all you could think of. They laughed and laughed and it stuck with me. At the time, I also had unkept natural eyebrows. But they were bad, and needed attention. I didn’t know what I was doing but I studied dozens of male models eyebrows and then I tweezed like cray. Man that hurt. It was awful. And because I didn’t know better, I used Sea Breeze on them afterward, and OMG that was the dumbest fucking idea ever. But I never had to worry about anyone making fun of my eyebrows. It wasn’t until I worked at the jewelry store that one of my friends asked if I ever thought about making my brows darker, instead of … overplucked. Well, COVID happened and I wasn’t going anywhere and so I just got lazy and let them grow back to what they were intended to be. And then I started investigating eyebrow makeup products, watched YouTubers videos/reviews and finally came to my own version of doing my brows. The EASIEST, fastest way to do them … for me, is using a semi-permanent tattoo marker, made by Bic, yes you heard me right. I just fill them in and it stays for a day. It was made for skin and it doesn’t rub off. Tah duh! Now this only really works for dark haired guys. While this is really pretty simple, it still takes a few minutes every day to do this. So that is why I opted for microblading. Guys can seriously improve their attractiveness/looks variable by doing this one simple beauty procedure.
So many of you are wondering what I thought of “Morbius”. Are you into vampire movies? If you are, then you will like this one. Do you like Jared Leto? Then you will like it. If you answered no, then don’t watch it. Wait until it hits HBOMax. If DC were to reinvent the “Batman” and not the original, they would turn a man into a “bat” by being bit by one right? Spiderman power syndrome. A guy who can control bats and drinks blood. Well, here he is, but his is called Morbius, not Batman. AND he is a bad guy. Personally I am WAY more into MoonKnight on Disney+. The whole Egyptian god thing is fascinating. And in case you forgot, taxes are due on Monday in the United States.
I bought a thousand dollars of airbnb, the other day and it already has gone up $16 in a few days. Who knows what it will be worth in 20-30 years? I used Robinhood if you need a recommendation. There were no fees when I purchased the stock. Super easy, super simple.
Pretty Privilege vs. Unattractive Tax
Did you know that these two “things” exist? I think we all can agree that a very attractive female with a knock-out body is going to get some if not a lot of favoritism. A lot of beautiful people say that they got where they are on their own, and not because of their looks. Yeah, I am going to have to call bullshit on that one. It is a known fact that if an employer has two candidates, equally qualified but one is more attractive, you can guess who gets the job. That’s right, the good looking one. After all, nothing helps the office when a handsome fellow joins the team and the ladies get gitty around him. On the other end of the spectrum is the “tax” that some people experience. While some people have never been discriminated due to their skin color, they certainly might have experienced it because of their unattractive looks. I had an unattractive overweight friend who couldn’t get help from a salesclerk so she could purchase her plus-sized clothes. I thought I was imagining things, but she was right. No one would help her. I thought it was kind of funny. I had no problem at all finding a cute salesgirl to check me out. Literally … and then when it came time to pay for it, I grabbed my friend. Poof. Like magic I was gone.
Hey, … if no one hasn’t told you lately, you are flawsome. That is, you have flaws and you are still awesome. Right? Right. People don’t like to talk about their flaws, as some of them might be embarrassing. Some of them are things that you just simply refuse to give up … like smoking, drinking excess alcohol, swearing, taking the Lord’s name in vain … you get the idea. All of those things might be perceived as not so awesome. How much of that Halloween candy have you destroyed without even thinking of how much of that TURNS TO FAT. Fat is not a bad thing. In fact, it tastes delicious when marbleized in your steak. On your own hips, waist and buttocks, might not be so awesome. Some might call it a flaw. A small flaw, but still a flaw nonetheless.
So what are some of the not so awesome things you do that maybe you could retrain yourself to change? How about starting with something simple like no soda pop for a week? No fast food for a month? Don’t kid yourself, McDonalds is shit food despite it tasting amazing. There is an entire documentary on it, Super Size Me. Watch it and you will change your ways. I love their French Fries, but I can buy GMO poison free fries at my Natural Grocer and then fry them myself in peanut oil, with no beef tallow in it. Stop dropping the F bomb. It just is in bad manners/taste. Retrain your mind to think positively. Welcome to your new world of amazing new thoughts and experiences.
Tell 3 people today that they are flawsome.
“Don’t go changing, to try and please me …” Oh yeah, some good ole Billy Joel to keep things in check. Since we are on the topic of looks, bodies, and such, I thought I would touch base on some basics. Let’s keep things real according to Aaron, shall we? Chances are if you are reading this, then you aren’t a celebrity. No fans, no followers, no paparazzi chasing after you wanting a selfie. So that means you are NOT paid on your looks, your posts, your pictures or thoughts. So the reality is, it doesn’t matter what you look like in order to create an income for yourself. Okay, just in case an influencer IS reading this, and you do get paid on your looks, … everyone else really only needs to be concerned with what ONE person thinks, and that is your significant other … or potential mate. Keep in mind, you only get ONE, and in your eyes he/she may not be a perfect 10 model. Unless you are a 10, you probably are not going to attract a 10, … according to society. Everyone has flaws. So that 10, isn’t really even a 10. If you are IN a relationship then it is really important for you to actually communicate with your spouse that you love his/her body. It is also important that you are happy and if hearing it from your spouse makes it happen, then start communicating. Be an enthusiast not a victim.
There are millions and millions of people looking for a mate. You don’t have to be alone and lonely. Join a club, take a class, start working out at the gym … and you will meet people. When you start liking your body, you will start loving it. How can anyone love you … if you aren’t loving yourself?
Everyone has a type … a type of person and personality they are attracted to and want to spend time with on a regular basis. Years and years ago I only had a couple of friends who liked going dancing at the clubs. I got tired of trying to convince work associates and friends to join me and started going alone. I made a ton of new friends at the club, who liked dancing and drinking and had no problems convincing to join me again. Guess what? Skiing is expensive and I had problems finding friends who wanted to ski. So I went alone, and discovered they have a lane JUST for people skiing alone. Yep, I have made a ton of new friends on the mountain riding ski lifts.
If you are a local, Loveland is selling a 4 pack passes for $200. They are normally $85 a piece. Loveland is a smaller resort, but not as crowded and closer than Breck or Keystone. If you ski during the week, a season pass might be of interest at only $379.
