If you dread the idea of going into the afterlife without perfect eyeliner, makeup brand Illamasqua will now let you plan out the makeup you want to wear at your own funeral. "To wear the most fabulous makeup applied by a professionally trained makeup artist for your final journey is the ultimate statement of celebration," according to the company's blog, and they're billing the service as "the final act of self-expression."
Leaving a beautiful corpse will cost you about $800, and you'll have to choose Leverton & Sons in the London area as your funeral home, since Illamasqua is providing the service in collaboration with those specific undertakers. Some women won't leave home without their "face" on, but do you think the people who are mourning you will really care if your eye shadow isn't perfectly coordinated with your casket lining?
Fort Pierce, FL, has its own deodorant-stealing "Robin Hoods" these days: shoplifters who steal huge amounts of personal care products from big chain drugstores and supermarkets to resell them at a much lower cost to mom-and-pop stores in the area.
Fort Pierce, FL, has its own deodorant-stealing "Robin Hoods" these days: shoplifters who steal huge amounts of personal care products from big chain drugstores and supermarkets to resell them at a much lower cost to mom-and-pop stores in the area. Recently, two women stole 75 sticks of Gillette and Secret deodorants from a Winn-Dixie, an amount with a total value of over $375. Apparently, some smaller stores are even soliciting people to steal this stuff, because deodorant is expensive and homegrown shops are struggling to stay afloat.
It's amazing that the women were able to get that much deodorant in their bags and then walk out of the store unnoticed, but it's also crazy and sad that things have reached a point economically where little stores are dependent on thievery for survival. What do you think about all this? And do you have any sympathy for the stores stocking these stolen products?
Missing grooms? Runaway brides? Drunken bridesmaids? Wedding disasters are the plot of every rom-com that utters "I do." Most so-called disasters in real life are mere faux pas, but one bride found herself at the center of attention when a brawl broke out her reception, and police were called to the scene.
Not only was a blast of pepper spray ineffective at dispersing guests, but it also caused them to turn on the cops, ending with the bride, an officer, and her arrest. Let's just say, it was her big day but for all the wrong reasons.
Most of today's achingly planned weddings lack the spontaneity for crimes and misdemeanors, but no wedding is perfect (even if we're supposed to say it was). So what's the worst thing you've seen on the best day of a couple's life?
