All opinions are my own. As many of my longtime readers may recall, I am no stranger to cosmetic enhancement and cosmetic procedures. I have tried several procedures over the last four years, including body shaping, lip fillers and wrinkle reducing injections…all of which I have been extremely happy with because they made me feel much more confident in my appearance.

One worker said she was violently slapped for leaving work early on a day when she was sick. Others described managers calling female workers “sluts” or “prostitutes,” as well as instances of physical abuse. A male worker said men at the factory were beaten and mistreated too. The workers also faced intense pressure to hit production targets that resulted in them working long hours without rest or breaks for meals. The allegations, which Lululemon...

Confession: I place at least 3 or more Amazon orders a week

Posted by admin on

Amazon has become my go-to online retailer for pretty much everything, with the exception of fresh perishable food and clothing. Y’all know I am not a big fan of shopping in stores, so having the ability to order almost anything online with fast, free shipping is EVERYTHING to me.
