Trib Tested: Clairvoyant Beauty Milk Bath Soak | TribLIVE

When he does this, the Vatican says the prepared text is official. “As stewards of Gods creation, we are called to make the earth a beautiful garden for the human family. When we destroy our forests, ravage our soil and pollute our seas, we betray that noble calling,” he said in the text. Another line he read to the crowd noted that “this country, more than many others, is likely to be seriously affected by climate change”. His comments came a day after he made a dramatic visit to the central city of Tacloban, ground zero of Typhoon Haiyan, which killed at least 6,300 people, left a million homeless and displaced 4 million more when it struck in November 2013. In Tacloban, Francis wore a transparent poncho to protect him from strong wind and driving rain and had to cut short his visit by four hours to get out of the way of a tropical storm. “Respect for the environment means more than simply using cleaner products or recycling what we use. These are important aspects, but not enough,” he said in the written speech. “We need to see, with the eyes of faith, the beauty of Gods saving plan, the link between the natural environment and the dignity of the human person,” it said.

An Israeli beauty queen’s selfie has caused a stir in Lebanon, with some Lebanese saying their country’s contestant at the Miss Universe pageant should be stripped of her title for consorting with the enemy. Miss Israel Doron Matalon posted a photo of herself and Miss Lebanon Saly Greige smiling together at pageant preparations in Miami, where the winner will be picked on January 25.

Uproar after Miss Israel’s selfie with Miss Lebanon | New York Post

Photo: Wire Image A Lebanese beauty queen pleaded self-ie defense after a Facebook pic of her posing with an Israeli pageant competitor caused outrage in Lebanon, which forbids its citizens from fraternizing with Israelis and is threatening to disqualify her. Since the first day of my arrival to participate to Miss Universe, I was very cautious to avoid being in any photo or communication with Miss Israel ([who] tried several times to have a photo with me), this years Miss Lebanon Saly Greige, who is set to compete in the Miss Universe contest in Miami on Jan. 25, wrote on her Facebook. The green-eyed brunette begged fans back home for their continued support in spite of a photo that Miss Israel, Doron Matalon, posted online that showed the two beauties of warring nations smiling side-by-side. Most of her followers posted positive comments after the apology, but her government may not be as forgiving. In 1993, the country stripped its Miss Lebanon, Ghada al-Turk, of her title after Agence France Press distributed a photo of her smiling arm-in-arm with her Israeli contender. This time around, the Lebanese government has vowed to launch an investigation and will decide this week whether the offensive photo will get her crown snapped, too. Thats exactly what Miss Israel was shooting for, said Miss Lebanons delusional agent, who likened the beauty to a stealthy saboteur, stalking his client with her camera drawn before she photo-bombed Greige standing with Miss Japan and Miss Slovenia, according to Lebanese media. But Miss Israel said quit the kvetching.

The muscles in my neck, shoulders and back were doing their best impression of concrete. https://www.facebook.com/arganellebeauty Despite having enough beauty products to open a Sephora shop out of my bathroom, I’ve never used milk bath. (I can’t believe it, either.) I added about a cup of Clairvoyant’s Milk Bath Soak to a nearly full tub of water. I immediately could feel the difference the trifecta of ingredients made. My legs were instantly velvety smooth from the lactose and sea salt, and the baking soda eased my chronically sore lower back (I’m looking at you, IKEA couch) and tight shoulders. I’ll get a few baths out of the 16-ounce jar, which, at $18, is way less than what I blow when I hit one of my favorite day spas. I’ve been trying to live a cleaner, healthier lifestyle since we flipped the calendar, so I appreciate the natural, organic products in the milk bath. But the coolest thing? The tiny wooden scoop that comes with it. Totally adorable. a Jill Leonard After a 10 12-hour day at the word factory, capped by a 20-minute run in the arctic with a frisky golden retriever, I was more than ready to channel my inner Cleopatra in a hot bath accented with Clairvoyant Beauty Milk Bath Soak.
