Thursday Thought (23/10/2014)

I thought this one was appropriate in light of what happened in Ottawa yesterday.

Refraction in Cologne, Germany

Refraction is the change in direction of a wave, caused by the change in the wave’s speed. Examples of waves include sound waves and light waves. Refraction is seen most often when a wave passes from one medium to a different medium. Different types of medium include air and water. When a wave passes from one medium to another medium, the wave will change its speed and its direction. For example, when a light wave travels through air and then passes through water, the wave will slow and change direction.


Refraction found in Montreal

re·frac·tion noun \ri-ˈfrak-shən\

1 deflection from a straight path undergone by a light ray or energy wave in passing obliquely from one medium (as air) into another (as glass) in which its velocity is different

2 the change in the apparent position of a celestial body due to bending of the light rays emanating from it as they pass through the atmosphere; also : the correction to be applied to the apparent position of a body because of this bending

Clinique Bonus Time at Sears

It’s time for another Clinique Bonus. This time it’s at Sears and it runs from October 16th, 2014 to November 4th, 2014.

To get the bonus, you need spend $ 31 or more. It comes in two choices of palettes: pink or purple. I went with the purple as I went with the pink for the bonus at the Bay a couple of weeks ago.

I was in need of eye shadow primer and lip gloss (a girl can never have too much lip gloss).

  • All About Shadow — 02 Moderately Fair
  • Long Last Glosswear — 10 Air Kiss

The bonus comes with a cute make up bag.

Included in the bonus:

Different lipstick — A Different Grape
All About Shawdow Trio — 10 Going Steady
High Impact Mascara — 01 Black
Clinique Happy Perfume Spray
Repair Uplifting Firming Cream
Dramatically Different Mosturizing Lotion

All in all a good haul for a $ 48 dollar purchase.
