    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    @MacMadame having researched my relatives from Elis Island records, part of my family members were labeled as Hungarian, Austrian, Serbian and Croatian. The butchering of their names is a separate issue. If your granny said she was Slovakian, she had strong reasons. I'd take her word over...

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    As a European, I am struggling to understand many of the racial nuances in USA. Very often I find myself not understating why people from mixed racial background are labeled as only black. What I do get is that it is a complicated social issue. That being said, during my stay in Rome I was in...

    Debate 2, Part 2

    I watch American politicians debate, because there are no debates in Croatia. Apparently we have democracy, but no debates. Plus, idk - I am afraid of whoever becomes president of USA.

    Glamour Puss thread: Sephora, I wish I could quit you...

    I will be hunting a new mascara soon. Essence is lovely, but their mascaras (and Catrice) make my eyelashes fall out... Plus I may be starting a new job soon where I will be more than allowed to do my makeup as crazy as I want :D

    2019 Eurovision Grand Final - Justify My Douze

    I cannot for the goodness sake remember the Netherlands entry. It was with a piano, that is all I remember. However, I agree with the public vote. Norway was fabulous and I am listening to it now.

    What is Davis and White's legacy in the sport?

    I remember Davis and White as very hardworking and consistent competitors. I liked several of their programs, I loved some of their performances, but would not put them in my top 10 favorite ice dancers. I have respect for their records as competitors and look up to people who do not seem to be...

Most of their products are made in Europe: Italy, Germany, Poland, Luxembourg.Their limited editions are often made in China.

    My lids melt eyeshadow when mixed with water. I had that Kat von d tattoo and it was pretty good for a modest nice thin line and cat eye, but not for the thicker line I am in for hehehe

    Olympic governing body 'knows the truth' behind late figure skater's alleged sexual abuse

    Does this cover the behavior of (pairs) skaters at Nationals or is there more I am missing?

    For a tribute to Plushenko, Hanyu made sure to be as choreography friendly to the Platinum King as possible. :nopryde:

    Don't know if there was a video recording, but I was at the press conference and typing the statements given by skaters. i can check the audio recording later, but I am sure Trusova is going senior (and is very eager to do so), while Scherbakova will likely be doing senior GP and going back to...

    At press conference at Junior Worlds, Trusova said she would be doing Grand Prix (as World Junior champion she will get an invitation), Shcherbakova said she will probably go to Grand Prix, but I am pretty sure she also said she wants to go to Junior Worlds next year so she may be doing a...
