Gizmo Closure Bringing Make-up Chunks to a Halt?

So, if you'll remember, in an earlier post I talked about the new invention that was going to be sweeping its way across the beverage market-the Gizmo closure. I was surprised today to stumble across a YouTube comment highlighting exactly why having the closure on cosmetics (which I didn't really understand in the first place) would be absolutely awesome-it can finally put a stop to those god-awful chunks that liquid make up gets when it sits around on the store shelves too long!

Think about it. Ladies, how often have you walking into a store and picked up a brand new tube of mascara, only to have it turn out to be no good two or three weeks down the road because it's so chunky and dry you can barely do it? Now, I don't know diddly squat about how they make mascara, but I have to imagine being able to withhold the ingredients that make it thick and chunky until you're good and ready to use it could only be a good thing!

What do you think?

The New Gizmo

It's not very often I'll take the time to highlight a product here, except for the new Transformers movie, but hey that was awesome! And, in the world of awesome, I also have to put a plug in for the new Gizmo closure. This is a new(ish) product coming out from Gizmo Packaging, Ltd, and I can't imagine it's going to take long before we start seeing it on all the local store shelves.

The idea behind the Gizmo is that someone has finally come up with a way to let you mix your drinks at the point of sale instead of having to pick up protein shakes, nutritional drinks and other flavored beverages after they've been sitting on a store shelf for a while and all the flavoring has fallen out of suspension-or worse, taken on that stale, overly watered down taste!

Check it out!

I believe...

All right, so I'm a lazy blogger. Work, school and family have been keeping me so busy that at the end of the day I don't want to do anything that requires me to think. I found this online tonight though, and I absolutely had to share...

I believe... that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other and just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do love each other.

I believe... that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe... that no matter how good a friend is they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I believe... that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe... that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe... that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe... that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe... that you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I believe... that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe... that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe... that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I believe... that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe... that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I believe... that sometimes, the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe... that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I believe... that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe... that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe... that no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I believe... that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I believe... that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe... that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe... that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

I believe... that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

I believe... that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe... that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.
