Last night Tia and I went to go see Fast Five. Though, I have to admit, that at first that I was skeptical to see the movie (because of Tokyo Drift) I was also excited. From the trailers I had seen I knew that the graphics and stunts would be AMAZE!
So with popcorn and hotdogs in hand, Tia and I sat down for what could be the best action movie of the year. I was at the edge of my seat the entire movie. I mean, when you put hotties like Tyrese, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel together, how could you not be at the edge of your seat. But even without the hotties the movie was fantastic. They truly brought their A game when it came to this film.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had me dying with his witty one liners and please when watching this movie, notice that regardless of what is going on he is always oiled up or sweaty. :p
Definitely a hit with us!!!!
Face Atelier Ultra Foundation Review
Dec. 17th, 2010Back again with yet another great product for review, Face Atelier's Ultra Foundation.... take a look see at what I have to say.
Now that you know what I think, here are some facts about the Ultra Foundation. First, the most important fact is that the foundation is OIL FREE, FRAGRANCE FREE, and NON-COMEDOGENIC. The key ingredients in this bottle of joy cyclomethicane, which fills lines and provides skin adehesion, and glycerin, which hydrates and binds moisture to skin.
There are ten shades and two unique color adjusters (Zero Minus and Zero Plus) for lighting and darkening the foundation. They basically have made it where you can make your perfect shade (how thoughtful).
- face can breathe
- very natural looking
- lasts all day
- Only comes in 30 ml bottle :(
- not sold in Sephora, so you have to order
You can find the Ultra Foundation at www.faceatelier.com.
Sedona Lace 12 Piece Brush Set Review
Dec. 11, 2010
I have been waiting to do this review on the Sedona Lace 12 Piece Brush Set and I am excited that I can finally share with all of you.
Sedona Lace is a cosmetics company based in Florida that sells many products similar to Coastal Scents and Sigma....however, the difference (at least the major one) is the price and the customer service. Though the package took a long time to get to me, whenever I emailed customer service I got a response back within the hour or the same day.
I am totally in love with the brushes....check em out!
Honestly through watching other reviews these brushes seem to be better than MACs because they are more dense. There is barely any fallout and they are just superb.
So to buy visit Sedona Lace and to get $4 off type in the promo code: Suzanna or Therealkingbob
and make sure to follow @SedonaLace on twitter.
Liz Earle Clean & Polish Hot Cloth Cleaner Review
December 7, 2010You guys remember my video on Liz Earle's Botanical Shine Shampoo and Conditioner?! Well they sent me their Hot Cloth Cleanser to try out! I was excited to use the Hot Cloth Cleanser because the shampoo and conditioner is just soooo good.
Before I get into the review, I want you all to know a little about the cleanser and how to use it. When you order the cleanser you will recieve a nicely wrapped pastel green pouch. When opening the pouch you will see the actual cleanser, two muslin cloths, a booklet about 15 reasons to love the "Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser", and a directional card. And you are probably wondering why there is a directional card. Well this not a normal cleaner, the foundation of this cleanser is made from rosemary, chamomile, cocoa butter, and eucalyptus. So you dont just put it on then rinse.
So basically how you use the cleanser is by 1, filling a basin or bowl with hot water; 2, apply one or two pumps of the cleanser to DRY skin, and massaging into your face; 3, rinse the muslin cloth in the hot water and wring it out till damp; 4, then use the damp cloth to wipe the cleanser off your face; 5, rinse face with cold water. And do this once in the morning and once at night.
I have been using the Cleanse and Polish Hor Cloth Cleanser for about 3 weeks now and I love it! My skin is more clear and radiant. I would recommend the cleanser for everyone with every skin type, because there is only natural ingredients making it good for your face. My skin feels and looks healthy and I am so in love. Really, I just have more faith in the company Liz Earle.
You can find the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and other great products from Liz Earle.
The Next Three Days
Nov. 26, 2010
I am a huge fan of action-thriller movies and The Next Three Days is just that. I was real excited to see this movie, hoping it wouldn't disappoint. And really it didn't. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time wondering how John, Russell Crow's character,would get his wife out of prison.
I enjoyed the little twist at the end of the movie when we find out if his wife had done the crime she was put away for, but I don't want to say too much. It wasnt the best action film I have ever seen, but it did leave me satisfied at the end of it all. And I am glad to say I felt happy at the end of the movie, because as of late I have been watching movies where the ending is dreadful and leaves me confused or hanging, but this didn't do that.
Definitely a must see.
Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel
Nov. 11, 2010
I'm back with another review this week. Since my laptop is currently broken, I had to catch up on my reviews. Today's review is on Juice Beauty's Green Apple Peel.
But let me give you some backgrounds info on the company. The company is based out San Fran and believes in only using CERTIFIED organic ingredients. Which is major because you are guaranteed no crazy chemically enhanced ingredients. And their products really work!
So make sure to head over to Juice Beauty and buy some products that are good for you!
Due Date > Movie Review
November 11, 2010
I love Robert Downey Jr. and I love that guy from The Hangover. What's his name... Zach Galifianakis, funny guy. Anyway, so when the trailer for Due Date originally came out I was soooo excited. And now that I have watched it you get to read what I think...but before all that here is the trailer ( just in case you don't remember).
Funny right?! Well yeah it is! I loved this movie...(don't lie you thought I was going to say it wasn't funny). Zach G. had me dying and Robert Downy Jr. was crazy. I felt bad for the french bulldog though. Basically the story is about Peter, Robert Downy Jr, trying to get from ATL to LA in time for the birth of his child. As soon as he meets... this is sad I forgot Zach's character's name but I remember the dog's name....as soon as he meets Ethan Tremblay his trip goes from pleasant to disaster and it's hilarious. I don't want to give too much away. But I highly suggest if you are looking for good laugh, watch Due Date.
Liz Earle Bontanical Shine Shampoo & Conditioner Review
Dolls, Im back with another review....whooo hooooo :) This is probably my favorite thus far.... I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo and Conditioner.
Liz Earle is a UK based company that strives to bring the best products for all skin types with the simplicity of using what the earth has given us. They strive to use high quality, natural ingredients, especially vitamin E. When reading "Our Philosophy" on the website, you learn that they use plant oils rather than mineral oils,and no genetically engineered ingredients.
The business started in 1995 between two good friends with the same love for beauty and now it has turned into a well known, trust worthy company.
So check the video out and leave ur comments!!!
Please excuse the rough editing...my computer broke so I had to work with what I had.
Here is Part 1 of the review:

It Cosmetics- Bye Bye Pores
Oct 25, 2010
I have another product from It Cosmetics that I got the opportunity to do a review on. This time it's on Bye Bye Pores. Bye Bye Pores is an HD Finishing Powder. What it is supposed to do is literally make you look as if you have no flaws, especially pores.
Like Bye Bye Under Eye, Bye Bye Pores was developed with the leading plastic surgeons. The powder is enriched with Vitamins A, C, E, & K. as well as real silk. This is to give an airbrush look...and that it does.
"Plus it’s Talc-Free! The talc particle, which is the main ingredient in most powders, is square shaped which clings to fine lines and wrinkles when applied, making the skin look drier and older. Bye Bye Pores utilizes spherical technology in the form of silica which is a round particle designed to float on the skin and blur out all imperfections. Plus it absorbs oil and gives a matte, airbrushed look all day long!"
I really like this powder because it does make your makeup look airbrushed and even, as long as you don't put too much on. The only thing I didn't use when trying out this product was the applicator puff, and that was because it absorbs the powder too much for me. So I used a brush to apply it.
The case is plastic so you need not worry about dropping it and it breaking. The only thing for me, is it is a little messy, but that could just be me. Overall I do like this product and still use it, almost everyday.
Now this could be purchased at www.itcosmetics.com or on The Shopping Channel for just $24.
Oct. 21, 2010
Can't wait to see this movie right? It looks sick?! Yeah don't let the cover fool you. I went to go see this movie early this week and it was much less than what Ihad expected.
It was two DREADFULLY long hours of pure boredom. What looks like would be an action packed film was the exact opposite, I honestly don't know what Matt Damon was thinking when signing on for this movie.
The movie is about a psychic named George, who can relay messages from the dead to the living, and his path of trying to find a life without his gift and a companion who could understand it. As inticing as the story line may sound, it honestly it is not worth going to see. The only reason why I stayed in the movie was because I was hoping it would get good...but nope I was S.O.L. I only liked the previews.

It Cosmetics: Bye Bye Under Eye
This tube of happiness literally makes those dark circles under your eyes just vanish and surprisngly with the tiniest amount. And I knew that once I had heard that this specific concealor is used for patience who had plastic surgery, I had to have it. I mean com'on if it can take the bruising away for those patients it can definitely do something for my dark circles.
And after I had tried, I was truely amazed. And for being winner of the best concealer on totalbeauty.com, it really pulled it's weight. The concealer is enriched with Vitamins C & K and Hydro-Collage. Did I mention it is waterproof too!
It's a perfect buy for those of you out there in search for the best concealer and I definelty will be using this from now on. Bye Bye Under Eye can be purchased from http://www.itcosmetics.com/ or on The Shopping Channel.
Oct. 15, 2010
I thought the movie was wonderful, as long as you enjoy animal movies. Surprisingly, my mister (whom I had to beg to come see it with me) liked the film and was inspired to start placing bets on horses...lol. Diane Lane looked wonderful in the movie and did a great job as the character of Penny. And John Malkovich was hilarious.
Definitely a must see of 2010.
The Town vs The Social Network
Being the movie buff that I am, this week I went to catch up on some movies I hadn't seen. Went to Varsity and saw The Town and then last night I went with Tia, my hun, and his brother to go see The Sociak Network.
Let me start off with The Town...
The movie was EXCELLENT. I almost wanted to cry, that it had ended. If you don't like this movie you are stupid and if you haven't seen it you might be more stupid...lol...seriously. It was a crazy film, never a boring moment, you felt like you were in the movie. I mean the acting was great, never felt like it was acting...and the story line, ridiculous!! I loved the twists and turns of the movie and the cast was phenomenal.
I am not going to get into the story line because eveyone just NEEDS TO SEE IT!
As for The Social Network...
The Social Network was a crazy movie, I will admit I fell asleep for a about 15 minutes during the course of it, but only because I am an early sleeper and it didnt have enough action for me to not fall asleep, but had it been earlier in the day I would have not done so.
Anyways I can say I loved it because I got to see how facebook was created, and Mark lost friends in the process. This movie is not as fantastic as The Town, but still a must see.
So The Town wins obviously, and eveyone should go see both, but The Town twice.
Batiste Dry Shampoo Review and Giveaway
So I was given the opportunity to review Batiste Dry Shampoo and this is what I thought:
So you see that I LOVE IT! And so do celebrities. Audrina former The Hills Star and Dancing With The Stars contestant, says, " I love Batiste dry shampoo because it smells amazing! When I'm on the go and need a little texture or volume, it works miracles! When I go to the beach I bring it with me too, especially if I have to go somewhere immediately following- it helps counteract sunscreen and oils."
So just like the vid said, leave a comment about your worst hair day and the funniest one will be chosen for a bottle of Batiste...
Disclosure: I recieved product from the company to do a review. Everything said was based on personal opinion.

THE DOLL POUND
The Doll Pound is an event where people can bring their dogs to network and socialize, but to also get acquainted with some of the Canadian made pet care products, from organic dog bakerys to clothing and attire. This will be an event where you can have your dog groomed and have a trainer answer all the questions you may have.
And while the pets are playing we, humans will be enjoying many snacks and eachother's company.
Now the event will be great, but the venue is even better. It's at a place called Paws Way....an indoor dog park! Bet you didnt know Toronto had one and if you already knew of one I can guarantee you this one will be the best. It was founded by Purina and is literally at the harbour front. So if you want to enjoy the outdoors and be near the water it will be the perfect place to do so.
Upon entering the beautiful dog centre you will see it has the only INDOOR cafe where animals are allowed to roam free. And you will also walk through the History of The Dog Musuem that leads to the open area where the event will be held.
Then there are the amazing companies that will showcasing some of their product and giving gift baskets. We have Fou Fou Dog who will be providing some cute attire for our four legged friends. We also have Big Dog Bakery who will be providing a dog cake as well as sample gift boxes of baked dog treats.
Dolls and Kens this isnt just an event for us to socialize and what not, but it's also for a good cause. We are donating some of the proceeds to the Farley Foundation. A foundation that helps family's pay for their pet care needs that really can't pay for it.
So make sure to come out to support, to enjoy yourselves, to let you dogs enjoy themselves, and to celebrate your best friend.
