Fashionable Friday Feature: Kachet

CSP_9769r for web

Hello! I’m Kachet (pronounced Cache), also known at The Lipstick Giraffe and I reside in Sacramento, CA. I use The Lipstick Giraffe blog to showcase my personal style and show others that they can be on trend without breaking the bank. By day, I am a marketing manager for a property based improvement district (PBID) and I’ve previously worked in the advertising industry. What can I say? I love people and connecting them with brands.

Why call the blog The Lipstick Giraffe? Well, I’m a tall girl who is sometimes referred to as giraffe, and I love lipstick. I thought it was perfect.


How would you describe your style?

Eclectic. Sometimes I’m preppy and sometimes I’m boho. You never know with me, but I promise, there will always be a splash of color.

How do you decide what to wear in the morning?

Sometimes I’m really good about picking out my outfits in advance, but mostly I just put things together when I wake up. As funny as this sounds, sometimes I think about what to wear as I’m going to sleep and my brain retains the info to put together a look the next morning.

What are your favorite wardrobe pieces?

I love a good vest: denim, cargo, trench – you name it!

Where do you typically shop for clothes and accessories?

It’s a mixed bag, but I do frequent Old Navy, Marshalls, Macy’s Impulse section, Nordstrom Rack, Crossroads Trading Co., and my local trading store Freestyle Clothing Exchange. A lot of my accessories I’ve been getting online: Groopdealz, Jane, and even Amazon. Type in Statement Necklace and you’ll be surprised what comes up. No matter what, I always shop sale. Always.

Let’s talk hair. How long have you been natural? What is your normal regimen.

I have been natural since July 2011. I can’t believe it’s been that long. I shampoo just once a week just to get the gunk out. My hair is divided in a line starting from the top of my ears. The front half is very tightly coiled where the back half is loose. It’s really annoying but hey, it’s the way I was made! As far as products go, I love Cantu Shea Butter curling creme, MOA leave-in (found at TJ Maxx), Bumble and bumble Semi-Sumo for coiling individual curls for maximum definition and most recently I was introduced to Purely Perfect Cleansing Creme and I LOVE IT. When I use it, I hardly have to use any product, my curls are defined and I literally just shake and go.


Do you have a signature hairstyle?

I’ve had a lot of different styles in the day, but there are two that stick out and both aren’t too far from each other. In 2008, I rocked the “Rihanna” pixie haircut until I went natural, and recently I resorted to a shorter on the sides, tall on the top curly look. I love it.

How does your natural hair work with your style?

Because it’s so hard to put style into a category, I think my hair just “floats” with what my clothing says. Sometimes it’s untamed, other times very defined.

Are you working on any ventures that we should know about?

Currently I am working with Old Navy and I provide styling sessions in stores in the Sacramento area on select days. I’m also planning to launch a YouTube channel soon, and build up my personal styling business here in Northern California.

How can we stay connected with you?

    TL;DR: Iron.Finance depends on arbitrage as their stabilizing mechanism for partially collateralized tokens. In the case of the TITAN token collapse, the time frame between its price feed oracle and the actual real-time prices of the market was too large causing users to become unprofitable and not protect the stabilization. As a result, TITAN dropped to zero and IRON lost its peg. The incident resulted in Iron.Finance losing more than $2 billion in the total value locked (TVL) in the protocol, dropping from $2.18 billion locked to less than $10.5 million. Iron Finance was my gateway into DeFi. I woke up to the news that Mark Cuban had bought into a token that crashed all the way to basically $0 — the first ever bank run in DeFi history — perpetuated by faulty protocol design which increased the supply of the TITAN token to over 35 trillion, lethally hyper-inflating the value of holdings. However, I realized that opportunity was sprouting from this incident.
    To help you get a clear picture of the future price of Cardano vs Ethereum, we’ve provided the price prediction of both projects from 2023 to 2030 in the following table. Crypto investors are eager to know which is a better investment today, Cardano or Ethereum. Now let us look into the difference between Cardano and Ethereum. They still have differences: as you can see from our Cardano vs. ETH comparative table, Cardano was able to include some key features from the very beginning: PoS is one of them, making the blockchain faster and transactions less expensive. Transaction Fees: While Cardano and Solana have vastly lower transaction fees than Ethereum, their prices have apparent differences. Cardano currently has an average transaction fee of €0.18 compared to Solana, which offers a meagre transaction fee of €0.00025 per transaction. Based on these figures, Cardano is 800 times more expensive to transact on than Solana.

    There are several free poker apps that you can download to play poker for fun, including the likes of PlayWPT, Zynga Poker, and Pineapple Poker. You can even link up with your friends and play online poker remotely. Real money apps like America’s Cardroom and 888 Poker are also free to download, but you need to bet real money to play cash games and enter live tournaments via the app.  Pot odds are the ratio of the current size of the pot to the cost of a call the player is facing. In a nutshell, pot odds can be used to help a player decide whether or not it’s a smart move to place a bet, based on the cards they need to complete a winning hand. They’re definitely worth getting familiar with as you learn about poker online. i think nlh is the most basic fundamental type of poker (eventhough the growth seems end since past 10 years), anything like 5 card plo is just variance and shit shows lol.
    You will only find Deuces Joker Wild at live casinos. To get any promotions beyond free drinks, you will need to join the casino’s loyalty program. Bring a valid photo ID to the players center. Once you have the card, slide it into the slot on the Game King machine with Deuces Joker Wild. It will track your play and award slot points at a rate of 0.1% to 0.3% at most casinos. The biggest difference with Joker poker is that it is possible to get five of a kind as there are two card decks used. With a joker wild card, you have more chances to create winning hands in Joker poker. Software giant Microgaming is the creator of the Joker poker game. The video poker payout table focuses on the actual chance of you composing the various hands. However, keep in mind that, like with all casino games, the casino applies a video poker house edge, which means the odds offered are not true odds but those altered according to the house edge. So, to find the best chances of winning, we recommend looking for full-pay video poker games. These games are quick and easy to spot, as generally, a full-pay game will pay out nine coins for a full house and six coins for a Flush. These games offer the best video poker odds and a return to player, RTP, of 99%.

    At this stage, the miner is rewarded with a certain number of Bitcoins, currently set at 12.5 coins, though will halve every 210,000 blocks. In addition to the Bitcoins received, the minor will also be awarded the transaction fees paid by users within the successfully mined block, which is of far greater incentive for miners as the number of Bitcoins per block continues to decline. Miners check two things when they hear your request. First they check to make sure that your digital signature proves that you were actually the recipient of those inputs. Second, they check to make sure that you’ve not already spent those inputs. To perform this second check, miners peak at a public database of all valid past transactions, called the blockchain, to see if those inputs were already used in a transaction or if they are still available. Copies of this blockchain are stored on the computers of all Bitcoin users that connect to the network.
    If you don’t feel confident doing the calculations yourself, you can always use an APY calculator like this one (there are loads of others online). For example, if you have a Crypto investment of $1,000 and an APY of 10%, your expected earnings would be $100 after a year. Validator Profit Calculator Understanding APY and its Significance When it comes to calculating your expected earnings using APY, it’s important to understand how this figure is derived. APY, or annual percentage yield, is a measure of the average interest rate earned on a financial investment over the course of a year. You can then use this figure to calculate the overall expected return on investments. The calculator will then calculate the APY. In this case, it amounts to 2.01%.
