Republicans are to drop a plan to gut the independent body that investigates political misconduct, after an outcry.President-elect Donald Trump had criticised Republicans after they voted to strip the Office of Congressional Ethics of its independence.

Focus on tax reform, healthcare and so many other things of far greater importance!” Mr Trump said in a tweet.

The proposal was dropped in an emergency meeting at the new Congress, unnamed lawmakers told the US media.Mr Trump made cleaning up corruption in Washington a key theme of his campaign, and he ended his tweet with “#DTS”, an acronym for “drain the swamp”.

Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan had argued unsuccessfully against the vote but on Tuesday he defended the proposal.

“I want to make clear that this House will hold its members to the highest ethical standards and the Office will continue to operate independently to provide public accountability to Congress,” he said.

The comic was mischievous in sharing the news of the arrival of his niece. The actor initially did not indicate that the baby was his niece and many had believed his wife just gave birth. Hours after congratulatory messages from his fans flooded the comment section of the post, he went to update his post indicating the baby is his niece.

Aki got married to his wife Nneoma in 2011 and their marriage generated a lot of talks looking at his height and that of his wife. But despite all that, the couple has been enjoying their marital life.

Have you been Right? How to Make Lipstick Last All Day

rs_1024x759-161220105709-1024-jessie-j-beauty-jl-122116Whether you’re a red-carpet regular or guilty of taking 20 selfies before you post one photo, you want a lip color that lasts.

Don’t just rely on re-application and way-too-obvious lip liner.Jessie J, who just announced an artist collaboration with Make Up For Ever, has pretty genius tips to make sure those puckers stay put.

“If I want [a lip color] to be on for a long period of time, always make sure that [the area] around your mouth isn’t too moisturized or wet with foundation—so extra powder around your mouth,” advised the singer.

 

The beauty guru (she does her own stage makeup, after all) relies on a surprisingly subtle lip liner technique.”Make sure your lip liner [pencil] is really sharp. If [the end] is blunt, the color will bleed,” the Bang Bang songstress recommended. “Lightly go around the edge of your mouth. A lot of times I see videos of people that really cake it on. I find that doesn’t work for me—going over the whole lip with the lip liner; it can get a little dry, so what I do is a really light liner.”

Of course, no color lasts as long as it promises—and even the celebs depend on good, ol’ re-application. However, you can do a few things to prolong another swipe from the tube.”I always use a lip brush to put my lipstick on,” Jessie said. “If I’m going out, I’ll touch up with the actual lipstick, but initially, I’ll put it on with the brush to get the line perfect. And always use a straw when you drink—that’s always helpful.”

Living like a Remote ..

Your time is limited,so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.Don’t be trapped by dogma-which is living with the result of other people’s thinking.Don’t let noise of other’s opinion drown out your own inner voice & most important have the courage to follow your heart and intuition-steve jobs

Living your life based on what someone will say is a life that has a remote control. Anybody could pick up your “remote” and click what ever they want.you are not committed to live up to everyone’s expectations.Life its self is under no obligation to give us what we expect.And you are under no obligation to give others what they expect.

If the new hair salon nearby gives you a bad look all the time.Don’t keep having that bad look because your afraid of what will be said about you going to a distant salon.Don’t do things and get upset because everyone expects you to.

Tired and depressed. Side view of depressed young man in formalwear touching his nose and keeping eyes closed while sitting on staircase

Be Happy instead.You have one life – this one right now – you must live it, own it, and especially don’t let other people’s opinions distract you from your path. Dare to give up living your life to other people’s expectations and start living it Your Way instead.

BEAUTY

omotola2

Every person,place or thing has an in depth beauty.But, this beauty doesn’t come out on its own.it only shows sign of its presence.It needs to be brought out through believing/knowing that there’s something good on the inside,and choosing a path that will bring it out.Beauty can be in so many areas, pending on your area of need.The “path” is the training process. e.g  education, apprenticeship, self teaching, that thing that you need to learn to get you the desired knowledge.

Just like an unrefined Gold,it looks unwanted,detected,neglected.But when its picked up and passes through a fire test,it becomes beautiful(accepted,valuable,important)

#pick up ur self,choose a path,Go through the fire,become BEAUTIFUL
