7 DONT'S OF FINE DINING

It is just plain common sense to go out to eat and have a great time but  there is usually that awkward moment when someone in your party/ table decides to do something awkward and you are left with the disgrace of just that plain embarrassing moment. We don't all have like minded friends and since we have to accommodate other people's differences. 
1. FAMOUS PEOPLE/ CELEBRITIES: Imagine seeing Kim Kardashian, T.I, Pharrell or Beyonce( i mentioned their names because i would love to run into them somewhere, someday) at the restaurant where you are eating, you are tempted to  get up and take pictures or just simply acknowledge them. PLEASE DON'T. They are mere mortals like you who are also feeding the mongrels in their stomach, please let them do so in peace.
2. PRICES: It is not until your friend decides to take you to the most expensive restaurant you realize that your debit card wont work or you haven't paid rent for month, then you start complaining about the price of the desert or a plate of food, if you go out to fine dine please hold your wallet, it should contain enough cash or money on your plastic mode of payment to cover food or tip. You don't dine out everyday and when you do please make it a pleasurable experience. If  you ever get invited to a restaurant to fine dine, you can check the menu online which would indicate the price.
3. PHONE CONVERSATIONS: We are all guilty of cell phone etiquette anywhere, it has become a culture, even at social gatherings, those colored screens staring at our faces but at the table please put the phone away and enjoy the meal. I have also decided to minimize taking pictures of my food but how can i stop when the chef prepares meals that look like they should not be eaten?
4. CHILDREN: This rule applies to children under ten years, most of them can only scream and run around, please if they cant be well behaved in public then i regard them as "socially unacceptable" at a restaurant, leave them at home. It is sad to see children running around who have parents that have absolutely no control over them.
5. SEPARATE CHECKS: This is great when you don't want to pay for gluttons who order the whole world and don't want to pay so in order to avoid drama you ask for a separate check, please do this when placing your orders not at the end, it allows for proper bill preparation.
6. RUDENESS TO WAITSTAFF: If there is one thing i cant stand is rudeness towards wait staff, they are people too and also remember that your food is in their hands, you want to eat a proper meal and let it digest properly.
7. TIPS: The people who work at restaurants don't make  enough money and most of them depend on tips from your patronage, please be kind enough to give a generous tip if you got great service, don't have $15.75 and tell the waiter to keep the change.

SEVEN SINS OF BEAUTY TAG

I found this tag on Say Hello to Dangerous blog and I decided to join and share some of my makeup experiences.There are the seven sins which are

1. greed
2.wrath / anger
3. gluttony
4. sloth
5. Pride
6. lust
7. Envy

1.GREED: What is the most expensive beauty item and also what is the least expensive

My most expensive beauty item is my JC Penny box of products which was about $32. It had "bite" lipstick, Smash Box primer, Too faced bronzer, Stila eyeshadow and the Pore reducer cream, it came with a nice pink cosmetic bag which got dirty a few weeks later.😒 my least expensive beauty item is my little box of baking soda which is about $0.52 at Walmart, it does wonders on my face because it works as an exfoliator by removing dirt and also helps reduce the oil on my face and pores, my skin feels smooth as a baby's bottom. 

2.WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Eyeshadow. I am still struggling to learn to apply those lovely layers of eyeshadow color, once I make a mistake I have to wipe everything off. It sucks.

3.GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?
Too faced chocolate bronzer, it smells like chocolate and one day I licked it off the side of my face, it tasted like chocolate.Yummy!!!😋

4.SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect due to laziness?
Lately it's my eyeshadow, due to the fact that I am not yet satisfied with the application I have tons of pallets that I have not used yet.

5.PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
two of my beauty products my Urban Decay eye pencil and my Bite red lipstick, I feel flawless when I walk into a room knowing I am pretty and my face is well "beat up"

6.LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
A handsome face and a well sculpted abdomen not necessarily a six pack🙈🙉🙊

7.ENVY: what items would you most like to receive as a gift?
Ruby woo lipstick from MAC and the NARS palette.
My birthday is coming up in twelve days, someone please surprise me!!❤️

It's been fun sharing. Let's hear one of your sins, share them with me!!!
