Neil Diamond Releases New Album “Melody Road” #MelodyRoad #O2O

I participated in the Neil Diamond Melody Road album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.

Neil Diamond, one of the world’s premiere recording artists, internationally renowned and record-breaking concert performer and revered songwriter, releases his brand new studio album, Melody Road, yesterday. The album, marks his first original studio release in six years and first since signing with Capitol Records. In addition, there will be a special 36-page lyric book with guitar chords included in the packaging of each album.

“It takes tremendous vision, focus and determination – combined with a mega-dose of God-given talent, charisma and soul – to create music that becomes indelibly ingrained in the fabric of our culture,” shared Melody Road co-producer and Blue Note President Don Was. “For decade after decade, Neil’s songs have been such a major part of our lives. Making this record with him has served as a profound reminder of what a powerful and amazing artist he truly is,” he continued.

I am an “old soul” when it comes to music, so I am very happy that Neil Diamond has stayed true to his roots in this album. My favorite tracks are Melody Road and First Time. They sound decades old, but in a refreshing way. The musicality and Neil’s clean vocals make me want to listen to this album on repeat all day long.

“First Time”
“Seongah and Jimmy”
“Something Blue”

Now here is a creepy picture of me before makeup.

Face Treatment

I told you it was creepy! By the progression of the bags under my eyes, I’m thinking I need more sleep! lol I started with the microdermabrasion set. You take a bit of the Refinisher Cream and Thermal Activator and rub them together in the palm of your hand. You can apply to your whole face or just your problem areas. For this review I just applied it to my chin, which is a huge problem area for me. I had been using acne pads and they dry out my skin, so it had been rough and flaky. Eww! The microdermabrasion treatment got rid of all the dead skin. I absolutely loved this set. It felt so good on my skin and I definitely felt and saw a difference. My skin feels so smooth!

Next I applied the eyeliner and shadow to my eyes. The eyeliner goes on very smoothly and was easy to apply. And it doesn’t smudge! I have been using an eyeliner that, by the end of day, has smeared all over my undereye area. The eyeshadow applicator was different than one I had used before. On one end, the tip was thinner and more pointed, which made it easier to get the shape I wanted. I also did not need to use much shadow. A little went a long way here!

I also didn’t need to use much of the mineral blush. Just one little dab of my brush and my entire cheek was covered. It was a little dark, but would have looked great if I had the Mineral Bronzer as well. Lastly, I applied the lip gloss. The lip gloss is not goopy or sticky, which is the worst! That just ruins a lip gloss for me. And I am definitely a lip gloss girl instead of lip stick. This lip gloss is still making my lips feel moist and adds a very nice shimmer without overdoing it. Sometimes subtle is better.

Mary Lambert’s Heart on My Sleeve Album Review #HeartOnMySleeve #O2O

This post may contain affiliate links. RMS Disclosure Policy

I participated in the Mary Lambert Heart On My Sleeve album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.

Mary Lambert is known for writing and singing the hook on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ chart topping song “Same Love.” I admit that I did not know who she was until this song started playing on the radio. She just released her debut album, Heart On My Sleeve.

Written within the past year , Heart On My Sleeve is an honest depiction of where Lambert is now. “This year has been the best of my entire life, which is not to say it hasn’t come with its fair share of hurdles, heartbreak, and harsh lessons,” she says. “I can only write about the experiences I’ve had. I signed to a major label. I went through a break-up. I figured out how to be an independent person. I have been terrifyingly honest to the public about traumatic events in my life. I met the woman of my dreams. I have been on the road nonstop, away from those I love, but with the opportunity to sing about gay rights to hundreds of thousands of people. This album is inspired by the depth of all of that love, and the journey that it takes to get there.”

“Heart On My Sleeve” is a dusky love song that Lambert chose as the title track because she felt it summed up how she approached writing the lyrics on the album. “I’ve always lived my life completely open, both to getting hurt, but also to love,” she says. “I have experienced so much joy because I’ve allowed myself to connect. That’s not to say that I haven’t been burned, but with really profound sadness comes really profound joy. Because I’ve experienced some trauma and some really dark times, my capacity for joy is massive.”

For more information on Mary, please visit her official site at www.marylambertsings.com.

I was hooked as soon as I started listening to this album. The songs are really catchy and they lyrics are relateable. She is very lyrical and one of the tracks is even a spoken poem. She also has a very interesting cover of “Jessie’s Girl.”
