Kicking Horse Coffee Review/Giveaway

My hubby loves coffee, I drink it on occasion. I don’t always react well with too much caffeine. The traditional brands that I grew up seeing all smell great, but I never cared for the flavor.

I was offered the chance to do a review for Kicking Horse Coffee, the ‘Kick Ass’ brew. I started to think that this would be a review that was perfectly suited for my hubby; I ended up discovering one of Canada’s best-kept trade secrets.

There are several different items you can purchase from Kicking Horse Coffee: Organic Fair Trade Coffee, Tea, Chocolate, Accessories, and Mugs. We can't forget the different flavors that are offered in coffee. Kick Ass, 454 Horse Power, Hoodoo Jo, Grizzly Claw, Half Ass, Decaf, Decaf Cliff Hanger Espresso, Cliff Hanger Espresso, Three Sisters, Z-Wrangler, Pacific Pipeline, Kootenay Crossing, Jumbo Wild, Bugaboo, Mocha Yoho, Mexican, Sumatran and Peruvian.

PHILIP B: 4 BAD HAIR HABITS, BUSTED!

As Hollywood's preeminent hair treatment expert, Philip B. has garnered international praise for his visionary approach to hair, scalp and body care. His award-winning blends are formulated with pure botanical ingredients and potent essential oils in concentrations that were previously unheard of in the industry. Delivering unparalleled results, Philip’s breakthrough formulations have dramatically changed the way the world perceives luxury care for hair and skin.  

Here are Philip’s four most unthinkable BAD HAIR HABITS and his advice on how to break them:

1. Brushing wet hair - Your hair is weaker and more elastic when wet, so brushing it can lead to breakage and split ends. Make sure to follow this styling commandment: Comb hair when it's wet and brush when it's dry.

2. Overdrying - If you have color- or chemically-treated hair and flat iron it often, beware! Heat styling tools and chemical treatments burn precious moisture out of your hair. Unless you replace that moisture with frequent botanical oil treatments (2-4 times per week), eventually it will start breaking off. To keep hair healthy, turn down the heat as much as you can and treat your hair to frequent oil treatments. I love my Rejuvenating Oil for this, but plain olive oil can work in a pinch.

3. Not protecting bleached hair - While it was tempting to dive in the pool during the hot summer, I’m sure it left your bleached strands looking a lot like greenish straw. Bleach is drying and makes your hair more porous, and chlorinated water also strips moisture from your hair – plus, it contains metals that can seep into your hair and leave a greenish tint. Now that summer is officially over, treat your hair by soaking it in a vinegar-and-water bath to help eliminate some of the remaining chlorine molecules. After that, an oil treatment is key to restoring moisture and shine. 

4. Neglecting to brush - A good brushing is an exfoliation treatment for your scalp. It stimulates cell turnover to make your hair stronger and healthier, drags the natural conditioning oils from your scalp to your ends to keep them shiny and moisturized and also buffs the hair cuticle to boost overall glossiness. But forget the old wives’ tale about brushing your hair 100 times each night – it's excessive and might be damaging. Instead, aim for 10-20 strokes, depending on the thickness of your hair. Tip: Use a pure boar bristle brush if you have fine, wispy hair; if your hair is normal to thick, look for a brush that contains a mix of natural boar's hair and nylon bristles. I use my own Philip B. brushes. You can also find good boar's hair brushes in fine department stores or salons.

TouchBack BrowMarker in Blonde was created specifically for women who have lost their brows due to chemotherapy. Streekers in Pink was chosen to be part of this campaign because … it’s PINK – the official color of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink hair is hot right now and still going strong in young Hollywood. Nicole Richie, January Jones, Ashley Tisdale and Lauren Conrad all tried out the trend this year. Kristina Barricelli, the brand’s Creative Consultant and stylist to Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens and Kristen Chenoweth, recommends Streekers to her clients to temporarily brighten their strands with vibrant, eye-catching color. “You can have pink hair Saturday night and be office ready by Monday,” Barricelli explains. “This collaboration is an awesome way to be on trend and support BCA month.”
Streekers priced at $11.95 available at Ulta or Streekers website.

The Spice Goddess Takes On The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

 The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is available on 
Blu-ray, DVD and Movies On Demand!

Spice Goddess, Chef Bal Arneson (Food Network and Cooking Channel Canada) checked out the movie and filmed her take on the movie along with her recipe for Butter Chicken.

"Growing up vegetarian, I had never eaten butter chicken. The first time I tried it was
in a restaurant here in North America. Often I cook it with the low fat yogurt to make a nice sauce, but on special occasion, I add a little bit cream to give a very nice thick aromatic beautiful creamy sauce. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie is a special movie and is very close to my heart because every time I watch it takes me right back to my village in India. I had  several of my girlfriends over and I made this recipe and we ate it while watched the movie." 

Bal’s Butter Chicken
 
4 Tbsp grapeseed oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 Tbsp finely chopped garlic
1 Tbsp finely chopped ginger
1 Tbsp cumin seeds
1 Tbsp coriander seeds
1 Tbsp Garam Masala
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp ground turmeric
Salt to taste
1 cup tomatoes- diced
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into
bite-sized pieces
1 cup cream
1 cup water

Place the oil in a skillet over medium to high heat, add the onion, garlic and ginger
and saute until golden brown, about 4 to 6 minutes. Add the cumin seeds, coriander seeds and cook for 30 seconds.

Reduce the heat to low, add the garam masala, red pepper flakes, turmeric, and salt, and cook for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Mix in the chicken and cook until the chicken is almost done, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the cream and water, and cook until the chicken is fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Serve it with basmati rice, nans and/or roties.

PammyJ Fashions Bracelets Review

Wearing jewelery is a big part of any outfit I am wearing. I can be wearing a t-shirt and jeans or a nice shirt with dress pants, adding jewelery brings that extra element that can truly complete an outfit. Simply by adding a necklace, bracelet, or earrings, you can elevate cute to glamorous. I have always heard that if you look great, you will feel great. Deciding on a new piece of jewelery to purchase involves a process of consideration that includes style, season, color, and of course, cost. When I had the chance to review some really amazing pieces of jewelery from PammyJ Fashions I knew that I would enjoy the pieces I was sent and find away to incorporate them into my various outfits.

PammyJ Fashions offers pieces for the whole family to look and feel great while wearing. There are necklaces, jewelery, rings, earrings and so much more to enjoy. Each piece offers that unique style to any outfit you are wearing. During my review I was sent the  Red Painted Flower and Crystal Cuff Bangle Bracelet and the Goldtone Double Circle Crystal Cuff Bracelet Fashion Jewelry.

BzzAgent Review of Unreal Candy


I am so excited to share my thoughts on the Unreal Candy line of yummy treats. I was sent FREE product coupons to try this tasty candy through BzzAgent. It is pretty normal for our family to stop at little gas stations or little convenient store to get ourselves candy, pop and bug juice when we are out and about. So, of course when we got the coupons my family was really excited to try this new candy that we had never heard of. 

 Unreal Candy comes in five different flavors all of which I have now tried and really enjoy. There is the Chocolate Candy Shell Peanuts, Chocolate Candy Shell, Chocolate Caramel Nougat, Chocolate Caramel Peanuts Nougat, and the Chocolate Peanut Butter.

Have A College Body You Can Be Proud Of

Now that fall has arrived, most college freshman are gearing up for a new life at school. Kimberly Snyder, go-to celebrity nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Solution has 10 great tips on how to stay healthy at college and how to steer clear of the dreaded “freshman fifteen.”

*1. Head for the salad bar. Plant foods – living foods – provide vital nutrition and enzymes. While salad bars often have some bad choices intermingled with the good, you’ll do well to pile your plate high with fresh, colorful veggies. If the dining hall has a blender available, you can even grab some greens and fruit and make yourself a GGS from salad bar ingredients. If you’re eating salad, make a quick lemon and vinegar dressing, and avoid processed meats (ham/bacon), dairy-based dressings (ranch, blue cheese, thousand island), cheese, and croutons. You can also mash part of an avocado throughout your salad, which is a whole food rather than using oil for a bit more denseness. You can top your salad with a veggie burger if that’s available, or some avocado or cooked veggies like sweet potatoes.

*2. Opt for oats. Skip pre-made cold cereal for breakfast. Instead, start with a piece of fruit followed by sugar-free oatmeal. Skip the instant oatmeal if that’s the only option available.

*3. Get a dorm fridge and a blender. If you’re living in the dorms, there’s no need to be completely at the mercy of unhealthy snacks. You can stock your dorm fridge with fresh produce, almond milk, gluten-free bread, and raw nuts. If you’ve got a blender, then you can start your day with a GGS. You can also make my filling Power Protein Smoothie with items that you can easily stock in your room.

*4. Avoid dairy. I’ve made no secret of the fact that dairy is really bad for you. Skip food products with dairy ingredients such as milk, cheese, and butter. Your skin will look so much better also.

*5. Minimize alcohol intake. Alcohol is okay in moderation, but avoid mixing it with sugary mixers or drinking a ton of beer (no keg stands!). Instead, have an occasional glass of red or white wine or stick to simple drinks like vodka and soda water.

*6. Skip the soda and energy drinks. Soda is full of acidifying chemicals, as well as sugar and/or toxic artificial sweeteners. Avoid those diet soda fountains also!! There’s not a single good thing I can say about soda, which is generally everywhere on college campuses. Instead, get a good water filter and a reusable non-plastic or non-leachable plastic water bottle to carry with you.

*7. Minimize animal protein. Make an effort to eliminate meats altogether, or to only include it in your meals a few times per week. When you do eat animal proteins, opt for eggs or lean poultry. College campuses are most likely not going to have grass-fed, local animals- they are most probably sourcing from factory farms, where the animals are injected with steroids and hormones that become part of what you consume.

*8. Find healthy entrees. Typically, cafeterias have vegetarian choices that include whole grains and veggies. Whenever possible, choose these for an entrée, and eat it after you’ve had a big salad. You can make requests too, and possibly band together with your buds to lobby to your school counsel for more vegetarian entrees!

*9. Keep healthy snacks on hand. It’s easy to give into temptation when you are busy or stressed out. Keep healthy snacks such as fruit, veggies, gluten-free crackers, and raw nuts on hand so that you don’t head to the candy machine during a marathon study session.

*10. Minimize caffeine intake. It may seem like the only way to make it through finals week is with a ton of caffeine, but caffeine can leave you jittery and strung out, and mess with your adrenals. If you need a little additional energy, up your intake of complex carbohydrates such as seeds or whole grains, and get some exercise.

Live from Cosmoprof: Meet Beautysage.com’s Newest Brands!

When it comes to the cosmetic world, there is only one place to go to find the next big thing in beauty. Cosmoprof in Las Vegas is not only the largest beauty trade show in the United States, it’s the one-stop-shop where retailers and beauty experts alike go to celebrate the best new products, launches, and brands from across the globe.

This year, the BeautySage team was there in full force! Teaming up with Discover Beauty—a section of Cosmoprof featuring emerging brands—BeautySage sought out to find the most exciting, effective products in the beauty and wellness world right now. They dug into the science behind the over 20 brands, looking at the ingredients and analyzing the claims, and carefully selected three favorites to join this newly launched site Without further ado, meet the 2012 BeautySage Select—you’ll be able to shop for them here very soon!


Marula - The Leakey Collection: Hot New Beauty Oil

Marula Oil is being touted as the next big beauty oil, and you get nothing but the very best with The Leakey Collection. They've done the work in the sourcing, obtaining oil from hand-selected, hand-cut marula nuts in Eastern Africa, and they've also done the work in the lab. "Marula Oil has been clinically tested to contain 16% more antioxidants than Argan or Grapeseed," says the brand's General Manager Cynthia Beesemyer. “In addition Marula Oil contains higher levels of Oleic, Palmitic and Stearic fatty acids critical for rapid skin absorbency, skin hydration and moisture retention."


Recipe for Men: Simple, Effective Men’s Skincare

This slick Swedish line takes a solutions approach: The ingredients and formulations are designed to solve a man’s daily skincare problems. It’s a simple concept, but the science  behind the brand is anything but simple: Their Director of Research, a former scientist and a 20+ year veteran of the skincare industry, works intensively on every product formulation, before it’s presented to a dedicated focus group to ensure they see the results. This process can take a while, like their award-winning, best-selling deodorant, which was over 2 years in the making!


Fairiche: Anti-Aging Hero

“Over the past 3 years I have worked with the best scientists and chemists to create the perfect combination of skin brightening and anti-aging,” says brand founder Vicki Nguyen. The result is an advanced skincare line that addresses all signs of aging in a single skincare system. Formulated with natural skin lightening extracts, Vitamin C, antioxidants and powerful anti-aging peptides, this line has an ingredient to combat each of the 6 most noticeable signs of aging.

Your NYFW Must-Haves

Here is a few things that every show-hopper should have to help them stay fresh and looking fabulous.


The ideal size for your purse, Davines MOMO Cream will help to keep your hair nourished and shiny. The leave-in treatment uses jojoba oil, walnut extract, and rice protein to provide moisture to parched hair and protects your hair from damaging elements such as sunlight and pollution.

Where to purchase & price: $21.50 at www.davines.com


“I love Fashion Week,” says Clark’s Botanicals founder Francesco Clark, “but the early hours added on top of your workday, and jumping from show to show can definitely make you look less than your best.  CB’s Anti-Puff Eye Cream is great for hiding dark circles or puffiness that you may start to see.  Some of my stylist friends put some on at night before bed, when they wake up in the morning, and keep some on hand for easy touch-ups. If using it at home, keep this in the refrigerator so the coolness of it will depuff even more.”

Where to purchase & price: $87 at www.clarksbotanicals.com


“Managing NYFW can be tricky. There are many nighttime events, and early shows, and somehow, you need to squeeze your regular workday in there, all while looking decent. I've found that sticking to a regimen of not staying up too late, limiting your alcohol intake, and using the Clark’s Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask for 15 minutes before bed is the best way to power through,” says Francesco.  “You’ll wake up with glowing, radiant skin… no matter how exhausted you may be feeling.” 

Where to purchase & price: $72 at www.clarksbotanicals.com


Our feet are one of the most overworked parts of our body… especially during Fashion Week.  Not only are we running from show to show, but many of us are doing it in heels.  Employing MLE technology, Olive Oil, Eucalyptus, Grape Seed and Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Atopalm’s Moisturizing Foot & Heel Balm helps to moisturize, smooth, and soften your tired feet.
