Could you survive The Naked Face Project?  (News)

Could you survive ‘The Naked Face Project’?  This Saturday will end two months of going without ‘makeup’ for Molly Barker and Caitlin Boyle from Charlotte. Actually, the two women gave up all of their beautifying habits from hair styling to make-up, to painting their nails, and even shaving (their legs and armpits). These brave ladies wanted to figure out why their beauty routines were so important to them, in hopes of getting comfortable in their own skin.  Molly won’t go back to highlighting her hair and Caitlin is forever done with daily make-up.  Since starting the Naked Face Project, Caitlin says that she has ‘been on time to everything’.  News 2 reporting that both women saved roughly $300 dollars over the past two months.   Find out more about The Naked Face Project: http://www.digtriad.com/news/local/article/222338/57/North-Carolina-Women-Take-On-The-Naked-Face-Experiment

“American Idol’ Colton Dixon on singing Lifehouse, his faith and that elusive standing ovation.   “The song (“Everything” by Lifehouse) is my favorite worship song of all time,” says the 20-year-old. “What I love about it is [that] I don’t know if they originally intended it to be a worship song, I just connect with it that way — the bridge, ‘You’re all I want, you’re all I need, you’re my everything.’ Man, it took everything not to cry — like full-on cry — on that stage. It means so much to me and my faith, I’m so glad I got to do it on stage.”

Everything is bigger in Texas, right?  No exception at the Texas Rangers’ ballpark with the introduction of the ‘Champion Dog’…a two foot long hot dog topped with chili, sautéed onions and shredded cheese.  It may sound a bit pricey at $26 dollars, but it could feed the whole family. http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2012/03/28/26-hot-dog-joins-the-snack-roster-at-rangers-ballpark/?hpt=hp_t3
