All I can picture is Varooka from the Willy Wonka Movies ... "I want it now!" Which is the reason Dushane went ballistic ...McDonald's refused to serve Chicken McNuggets during breakfast time. Now everyone knows you can't get lunch before 10:30 a.m. ... don't they?
Dushane's McNugget meltdown was captured by the store's security camera. (I wonder if she's worried the neighbors will see this?)
In the video, Dushane can be seen arguing with the drive-thru attendant, getting out of her car to spar with the employee, while other workers attempt to close the window. But, even with the window closed, Dushane continues to make threatening gestures, until she grabs a bottle from her car, smashes the drive-thru window and drives off.
Dushame, who admits she was drunk was sentenced to 60 days behind bards and ordered to pay the cost of replacing the broken window.

All suits are under $100.00 and we have an eclectic blend of retro styles of the past, with a modern twist, inspired by pin-up girls, vixens, and bombshells, hot rods, tattoos, & the cool stuff of yesteryear.
Each suit is carefully handcrafted one at a time in the good ole' USA. This designer takes great pride in their work, so there’s no mass-production.
Hope you love the styles as much as we do : ) Offered at Get Go Retro!

Shapewear firms everything up. Today's garments are not your grandmother's girdle. Yesterday's model had boning, metal and really uncomfortable, heavy material. Body Magic and/or Ardyss brands are made of lightweight, breathable medical grade compression material. It's a win win situation to wear one. You lose the inches immediately because it compresses you, but it also reduces your size if you continue to wear the garment.
The difference with shapewear is that a girdle like your grandmother wore in the 50's, will smooth you out, but once you take off a girdle you're back to the same body you started with. But, if you keep using it (shapewear), you'll see a change in your body as it tones and tightens; and perhaps even a psychological affect. Some find that wearing shapewear improves their confidence and self esteem and empowers them to want to exercise more.
You wont' be disappointed, if you wear it like you are suppose to, you'll see the difference. It's a commitment, just like exercise.

Rosie O’Donnell is a purported noni aficionado, along with super model Miranda Kerr, which goes to show you the spectrum of celebrities that have tapped into this fad. Although noni juice has failed to peak much major media attention, the benefits of noni juice seem to have passed through tinseltown, infecting Hollywood with a healthy habit. The differences between the celebrities who love noni mirrors the same wide audience that it has enjoyed world wide, as I’ve met hippies and lawyers alike who swear by noni’s healing properties.
Of course when celebrities do something, people seem to want to do it too. Hopefully these celebrities can spread the word about noni, even if only by example, increasing sales for the companies and improving health for consumers. Greater demand for the juice may drive the price up initially, but fierce competition and a larger market would ultimately level the price out, putting noni into the hands of more individuals. With that said, there’s definitely some good that can come out of celebrity trends. Since regardless of what celebrities do, people copy them, they really are given quite a bit of power. This looks like one case where they’re using their power for good, even if they’re doing it obliviously.
As always ... check with your doctor before you take anything.

The plus shapewear's main function is to support the lower abdomen and uses special reinforcements to smooth irregularities and to protect internal organs.
Applies a smooth and firm pressure to the abdomen. Repositions and smoothes any irregularities in the abdomen & crotch. It prevents fat accumulation in the crotch. It is excellent for enhancing the hips.

If you are looking for a way to get a darker tan .....
If you are fair skinned and want a quick tan you need to read about Canthaxanthin. I first heard about it in
LIFE EXTENSION (Warner Books) by Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw. When I saw that Mr. Eastwood used it ... I figured what's good enough for Clint is good enough for me. I have used it for the past 10 years .. and it definitely does it's job. It's better I just let you read an excerpt from the book so you can make your own decision. Without further adieu .... from Life Extension:
" The use of very high doses of beta carotene to reduce photosensitivity does have a cosmetic drawback, however. The beta carotene will color your skin yellow (which can also occur if you eat a great many carrots), making you look jaundiced. Of course, it isn't really jaundice (caused by liver failure), and your doctor will realize it immediately when he sees the whites of your eyes have not turned yellow. Nevertheless, you may not want to be carrot-colored. There is another carotenoid, canthaxanthin, which is very closely related to beta carotene. This is the material that makes flamingos and certain shellfish pink. We think it provides better protection from ultraviolet light and singlet oxygen better than beta carotene, and it colors the skin a beautiful natural-looking golden-copper tan when taken orally. "
" In the spring of 1981, I added a carotenoid, canthaxanthin (Orobronze) to my formula, primarily for its ability to color human skin a golden-bronze color without UV exposure, but also for the very substantial protective effects of the carotenoids. The results have been better than expected.
After a winter indoors glued to a computer writing this book with Sandy, we pulled the plug and went on a micro-vacation. I spent 2 1/2 days in the Mohave high desert clothed as shown in the accompanying photos, without even getting a slight sunburn. (This location was about 80 miles south of Death Valley.) This substantial increase in sunburn resistance over the prior summer was presumably due to the addition of Orobronze (canthaxanthin) to my personal experimental life extension formula. Carotenoids such as beta carotene and canthaxanthin are excellent deactivators of highly reactive and damaging forms of excited oxygen, singlet and triplet oxygen, which are photochemically produced via ultraviolet light. In addition, they are good free radical scavengers (also ultraviolet light induced), and ultraviolet absorbers. The principal mode of activity was not UV (ultraviolet) absorption, however, because my canthaxanthin tan darkened very noticeably due to UV-stimulated melanin production in my skin. Most of the protective effects are probably due to deactivation of excited oxygen and free radicals. " (pg. 771)
" 'Mr. Smith' says that there was a 'real dramatic' effect on his skin's resistance to sunburn when he used canthaxanthin, a carotenoid (chemically related to the yellow coloring matter in carrots, beta carotene). His skin is relatively light and sensitive to sunlight, especially his nose. He began using about 120 milligrams of canthaxanthin per day, then went to the same dose every other day. He looks as if he has a beautiful golden-bronze suntan and he says his resistance to sunburn is dramatically improved. Recently, when he forgot to use sun-block on his nose, it received only minor sunburn compared to what would be expected from earlier experiences.* " (pg. 743)
* Mr. Smith is commonly known to be movie star Clint Eastwood.

Sounds good to me : )

The knickers range by lingerie designer Bruno Schiavi and plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Rey, boasted a sale of 1 million dollars in its debut weekend. Another leading brand is Spanx, which was even featured by talk show queen Oprah Winfrey on her show. Since then most Hollywood stars, including Katherine Heigl, Jessica Alba and Cate Blanchett, are using shapewear.
A woman who uses shapewear can normally go down a dress size, reducing her waist measurement by 7cm.
According to health experts, one can easily use shapewear to smooth out lumps and bumps as long as the garments are correctly fitted."It's not supposed to transform you from a size 14 to a six. Use common sense.

ACV is also available in tablets and capsules. According to some nutritionists the combination of apple cider with kelp, vitamin B6 and lecithin is much more effective for weight loss than ACV alone."

2- THORAX (measure directly under your breast and that one is to be a very tight measurement)
3- WAIST (measurement about 2 inches above your navel)
4- LOWER BELLY (if you have a lot of lower belly tissue measure that as well)
HIPS (measure around the largest part of your hips)
