Palettes I Wish Existed | Pat McGrath + Natasha Denona Edition

Pat McGrath Dream Palette #1: Enchanted Forest I’m desperately waiting for Pat McGrath to create more green eyeshadows.  Like desperately.  I love green! I can just imagine the richness and depth PMG would be able to get, plus… the duochrome/sparkly shades? Yes, please! Pat McGrath Dream Palette #2: Subversive Odyssey I’d love to see a palette with more color, but I am a big fan of slightly more muted, colorful palettes…  This is my interpretation of a space/galaxy-themed color story… but mak...

3 Ways to Throw an Elbow Strike

In the world of hand-to-hand combat, there are few tactics more brutally effective than throwing a powerful elbow to an assailant’s face. The elbow is one of the hardest and sharpest parts on the human body. It can deliver blunt force trauma to your target as well as cut their skin. Elbows can be thrown with devastating force even if your attacker has you close to him or if you’re on the ground. An elbow strike can also be used as a back-up to a missed punch. Thanks to the multiplicity of benef...

If you really want to upgrade a certain area of your life and have the upgrade ...

New Pluralsight Course: Using Critical Observation on the Job

Seeing this last night was really cool: Critical observation is an interesting topic.
