Posing in the new video ad for the latest launch by celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath, the long-haired 17-year-old worked the camera with his piercing blue eyes in a simple black leather jacket and a white T-shirt.
Damian isn’t shy in showcasing the bond he and his mother share and often posts pictures of them together to social media. Elizabeth, who turned 54 in June, recently told Red magazine that with Damian nearly being finished with high school, he’ll soon be able to make his own decisions with “interfering mummy in the background.”

However this photo is the stunner:

|Thanksgiving Greeting from the Wade Family|
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union have been vocal about their thoughts on the importance of inclusivity before. And just like every time in the past, Wade didn't hold back after social media users shared their thoughts on a picture of his family.
The ex-Miami Heat player's wife, actress Gabrielle Union, posted a Thanksgiving family photo last week with their two children. Their son, Zion, is sporting white nails and what some Instagram users said was a crop top.
And when social media users began to criticize the photo, Wade responded [on Twitter].
I’ve seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo. Stupidity is apart of this world we live in—so i get it. But here’s the thing—I’ve been chosen to lead my family not y’all. So we will continue to be us and support each other with pride, love & a smile!Hundreds of users responded to express their support.
"Shout out D. Wade for setting the example of a Black father loving and accepting their children as they are," said one Twitter user, who was retweeted by the athlete. "There'd be a lot less trauma in our community if more Black dads were like this."
Wade and Union both have emphasized the importance of inclusivity -- especially within their own family.
Earlier this year, Wade posted a picture of Zion and Union at Miami Beach Pride Parade, captioning it: "We support each other with Pride."
"I truly hope that everyone gets the love, support and hugs they deserve," Union said on social media in October.
What a wonderful supportive dad!

Many of you will remember this alternative version of the "Night Before Christmas" from last Christmas eve. I hope this become a tradition for many Christmas eves to come. Enjoy and have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
Cross Dressing Night Before Christmas
Posted to alt.fashion.crossdressing by Shae Guerin 2002-12-23.
'Twas the night before Christmas, and all thru the house
I was making my plans to look more like my spouse
I carefully laid out my very best clothes
My bra and my panties, my slip and my hose
My stockings weren't hung by the chimney tonite
They were on me instead, feeling sensually tight
My dress was of velvet, a burgundy red
And on my long nails a new polish was spread
With makeup and jewelry, high heels on my feet
I was looking so sexy, and feeling so sweet
When out in the yard there arose such a noise
That I sprang from my bedroom, forgetting my poise
The moon on the snow with it's brilliant white glitter
Reminds me of lace, to set my heart a-twitter
When what to my long-lashed eyes should appear
But a person in red with a sleigh and reindeer
But I couldn't tell, was it a 'he' or a 'she'
The one with the pack was dressed somewhat like me
There in the sleigh was this 'cutsey' old flirt
With a white wig and makeup, a red blouse and skirt
The reindeer were sparkling, with rhinestones and pearls
And their antlers in ribbons, so they all looked like girls
When s/he stepped from the sleigh, to my eyes were revealed
Her knee-hi black boots with their seven-inch heels
Santa just blushed, but I stood there and smiled
And said, "Hello, my dear, can you stay for awhile?"
"Well you finally caught me", he said with a pout
"At this time on Christmas, folks are seldom about."
"I don't go enfemme very ofen at home,
Mrs Clause doesn't like it, so I do it alone.
"So when I give out goodies to make others smile
"I like to feel pretty and femme for awhile."
"So I ride off dressed up, from my hi-heels to wig,
"On Christmas eve night while I'm doing my gig."
I said, "Don't worry Santa, your secret is safe
Why don't you come in and just freshen your face."
We sat and we talked and vented our passion
For feminine frills and the latest new fashions
We finally parted with a hug and a kiss
She said, "I must go now, or some children I'll miss"
I went to my party and had a great time
With music and laughter and good food and wine
But when I returned and looked under my tree
I found some new pretties from sweet Santa to me
Lacy panties, a bra and a soft satin blouse
Perfumes and some candles to light up my house
But it wasn't the goodies that swept away my blues
It was knowing that Santa was a cross dresser too
So next time don't judge all the people you meet
By what they are wearing when out on the street
For in being ones self, there's no 'wrong or right'
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
Five Reasons Men Love to Leave Christmas Shopping Until the Last Minute
From: The GoodManProject

I’m not a fan of gender stereotypes but there does seem to be some universal truth in the idea that just like Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie Jingle All The Way, men are more likely to leave their Christmas shopping to the last minute.
This year, a survey by the Australian National Retailers Association found that men are two and a half times more likely than women to do their shopping in the last few days before Christmas.
In the UK, one major department store claims they know when men start Christmas shopping each year because sales of the country’s best-selling festive perfume, Chanel No. 5, start rising. According to Ruth Attridge of the retailer Debenhams:
It’s like a starting pistol going off. As soon as we see sales of Chanel No. 5 rising, we know that men have begun the race to get their Christmas shopping done. Men have a totally different way of shopping. They just want to get into store, pick up the items they want as quickly as possible – and leave.
So, bearing in mind that as with all gender stereotypes, this won’t apply to all men or women—here’s a list of five possible reasons why men are more likely on average to start shopping for Christmas presents later than women:
1. Men get less satisfaction out of gift buying
2. Men don’t want to buy the gifts that women want to receive
3. The thought of buying and receiving presents makes us anxious
4. Gift buying isn’t men’s way of expressing love
5: Men love the challenge of a one-day hunt (my favorite)
Of course not all men will conform to the global gender stereotype of shopping late for Christmas—-and there will be some women who also leave it until the last minute. Whether you’re buying gifts right up until shops close on Christmas Eve or whether you finished wrapping your last present weeks ago, I wish you a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

What men really think when they see a tall woman wearing high heels.
From the Site SheKnows:
by Kacie McCoy
It’s a bold woman who wears 4-inch heels when she already towers over a room in bare feet. We talked with a handful of guys to get their take on fearless Amazon women in high heels. As a 6’3″ woman myself, I often wonder what men think when I wear high heels. As it turns out, most men love the look! So grab your stilettos and hit the town, tall women everywhere, because you’re about to turn a few heads.
Here are the Comments:
“Tall women who wear heels are so pretty, but I definitely feel intimidated by them. I’m only 5’8″, so a woman who wears high heels is going to make me stare but probably not ask her out.” Joe, age 25.
“I usually think tall women who wear heels are sexy but out of my league. They look like models, and I’m just a regular guy. I probably wouldn’t approach her in a bar, even if I wanted to.” Martin, age 31.
“I feel some tall women wear heels to further emphasize their height. Like, ‘Look, I’m taller than you,’ or ‘Yes, I’m over 6’0″ tall in these heels.'” Matt, age 27.
Bring on the gorgeous legs!
“Tall women in high heels have legs that go on for miles. I don’t care if a woman is taller than me — those legs in high heels look spectacular!” Ryan, age 35.
“I’ve never seen a more beautiful woman than a 6’0″ co-worker at my old job. She would wear nicely fitted clothes to work, and would pair every outfit with sexy high heels. The heels made her legs look amazing. To this day, I kick myself for not asking her out. I just figured she wouldn’t want to date a shorter guy.” Tim, age 44.
|Gwendoline Christie—Height: 6 feet 3 inches|
HBO’s series “Game of Thrones.”
Confidence is a turn-on
“Simply put: I think tall women in heels are confident, secure and beautiful.” Jerome, age 28.
“There’s nothing better than a woman who knows who she is and what she likes. I can’t help but think tall women who wear high heels fall in that category, because I’m sure they field a ton of questions and comments due to their fashion choices.” Samuel, age 34.
“When I see a tall woman in heels, I automatically wonder what kind of super children we could make together. Yum.” Zack, age 35.
“If I see a tall woman in a bar or club, I’ll stare at her for most of the night, but I won’t ask her to dance until we’re both adequately drunk. Girls like that are intimidating.” Michael, age 28.
“It’s weird to make out with someone taller than me, but bring it on!” Jake, age 25.

Patti Davis said the president’s sense of decency is “nonexistent” in a stinging editorial for The Washington Post.
Patti Davis, the daughter of former President Ronald Reagan, joined the widespread chorus of criticism leveled at the impeached President Donald Trump over his attack on the late Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.)
Trump at a campaign rally in Michigan on Wednesday implied the late lawmaker, who died in February, could be in hell.
Davis, in an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Thursday, said it showed Trump’s “cruelty really has no limits.”
“Trump has assaulted numerous people at his rallies — a Gold Star family, a disabled reporter, various women, political rivals,” she wrote.
“He knows full well the impact of attacking people so publicly,” said Davis, who earlier this year said her late father would have been “horrified” to see what the GOP had become under Trump.
“Maybe some of those in his audience on Wednesday finally began to perceive that his cruelty is limitless, his sense of decency nonexistent,” she added.

|Cover Creme Full Coverage Foundation - Dermablend Professional|
Experience our original maximum coverage cream foundation for up to 16 hours of consistent smudge and transfer-resistant color wear.* Formulated by a dermatologist and a makeup artist with a high concentration of high-performance pigments to cover a variety of skin conditions including birthmarks, burns, scars, hyperpigmentation, lupus, and vitiligo. It provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 for ultimate skin protection and is never cakey or masky. Our best full coverage foundation glides on evenly to leave skin feeling fresh, soft and smooth.
______________Many years back, Dermablend was my "Go-To" (old friend) foundation with every escape beginning there. It came with its own mini-trowel (shown) and yes, I troweled it on like putting stucco over an old building.
This is such a non-lady like discussion, but I had a very dark, heavy beard. It was Homer Simpson dark and even after shaving it was ever present. One of the makeup artists that taught me early on, suggested this miracle cream. It was designed and marketed to professional makeup artists who needed a foundation to cover scars, beauty marks and even tattoos. This was industrial strength makeup.
My beard finally turned mostly white along with the hair on my head and I did do a few laser treatments while I still had some dark beard hairs. Most important - after many years I finally outgrew the need for such heavy coverage. The natural stuff I use today is so much better as I also discussed yesterday.
Sometimes trying to hard to hide a flaw only accentuates it.
It is nice to remember an old friend that helped me to arrive at today's confident level.
Anyone else out there remember troweling Dermablend?
Update: Dermablend is now owned by L’Oréal, the transgender supportive cosmetic company I wrote about yesterday. Also I fund a L’Oréal site that highlights Dermablend's amazing coverage ability.
