Dangerous Bullsh!+ | Kat Von D and the Anti Vaccine Cult

"Yeah...no."

Kat Von D & Other Celebrity Anti-Vaxxers Over the last 15 or so years, we’ve seen a rise in parents refusing vaccinations for their children, regardless of the risk of spreading communicable illnesses. Some of the concerns revolve around misinformation about the MMR vaccine and autism as well as the vaccination schedule. Today we’ll be delving into what vaccines do and do not do, what is in vaccines and why the ingredients are safe, and why we need vaccines for “common” illnesses in the first place. Vaccines DO NOT cause autism. This has been proven time and time again. In fact, the big thing that anti-vaxxers say over and over again is that “big pharma” just wants our money, but the men who made the original argument against vaccinations and posited that they cause autism were, literally, making money off of gullible and scared parents by selling snake oil cures and books.

A dermaroller/microneedling tool is covered with tiny needles that you roll along your skin.  These needles create a lot of very small micro-injuries and those injuries trigger your skin to send collagen and elastin to help repair the issues.  Collagen and elastic production is responsible for tight and clear skin, so it can help with a variety of issues and, because it can be done inexpensively in the home, it has become a popular way of assisting your anti-aging skin routine.

How to Make YouTube Videos | Studio Setup | Chapter One

Studio Tour

Come with me on a tour of my modest little YouTube studio! This is Chapter One of a 6 part series on How to Make YouTube Videos. I’ve learned a lot of stuff the hard way and I’m going to try to make it a little easier for you, so if you have any specific questions, please put them in the comments below! My Studio Setup Video Tour Tips to Maximize Your Space Go Vertical When working with a small studio, it’s best to use your space as efficiently as possible.  I got a lot of inspiration for my space by researching tiny living on YouTube, surprisingly enough.  The biggest thing people who live in tiny homes talk about is using your vertical space, not just your horizontal space.  I utilize my vertical space by using the wall space above decoration, the ceiling, and stacking my equipment as tightly as

I Hate Everyone | Uncommon Signs of Depression

Uncommon Signs of Depression Thumb

In this video, I talk about some of the symptoms of depression that aren’t widely known by the general public. If you feel as though any of this relates to your experiences, I encourage you to try to find a therapist or psychologist if you have health care that covers it. If you don’t have health care, there are often clinics that take in patients on a sliding scale for payment, and that’s a great place to start. You might also qualify for assistance in your state if you begin going to a therapist or other healthcare provider, although, with the current administration, I’m not sure that will continue. It’s worth it to just go into social services to see what is available, if anything, as your mental health will affect how you move through life. As always, I’m rooting for you. Take control of your mental health and don’t

Beauty on a Budget: DIY Natural Skincare

DIY Natural Skincare

I am almost out of my favorite, brand name skincare products and I wanted to go back to using more homemade cleansers and moisturizers. I decided to whip up batches of my favorites and show you guys how easy it is to take care of your face! I have dry skin with texture issues, so I tailored the video recipes to my own needs, but you could easily switch up ingredients to meet your needs. The Foaming Face Wash, in particular, rinses clean, so I wouldn’t be surprised if combination or even moderately oily skin types liked it. I hope you guys like these natural skincare recipes, and if you do, comment below!  I plan on making this Beauty on a Budget into a series, so Subscribe to my YouTube to find out when I upload more of these!

Top 5: Cruelty Free Makeup Brands

Top 5 Cruelty Free Makeup Brands Thumbnail

Here are my Top Five Cruelty-Free makeup brands listed, all confirmed on the Leaping Bunny website. Whether you’re looking for bold colors or natural and easy multi-tasking products, this list has you covered.  All of these brands have cruelty-free cosmetics and all of them have vegan options for those that abstain from using any animal products.  What I loved most about researching for this list is finding out why the creators of these brands prioritized cruelty-free.  It’s an obvious statement to say a lot if not most people prefer to know their products aren’t tested on animals.  Knowing which brands prioritized that out of a love of animals rather than a desire to bring consumers what they want was really interesting, from my perspective anyway. Obviously, I couldn’t possibly fit all of the cruelty-free makeup brands into this one video, so I highly recommend you look at the Leaping Bunny
