The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel DVD Review

 An award-winning, all-star cast, led by Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Smith, lights up this "buoyant comedy laced with genuine emotion." (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) When seven cash-strapped seniors decide to "outsource" their retirement to a resort in far-off India, friendship and romance blossom in the most unexpected ways. Smart, life-affirming and genuinely charming, THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is a "true classic that reminds us that it's never too late to find love and a fresh beginning at any age." (Rex Reed, The New York Observer) 
I cannot think of anything more glamorous than retirement. The time when work is done and we can finally relax and enjoy a life of leisure. Okay, for some it is not that spectacular. Many people feel the need to continue a productive life outside of one filled with the typical drama that is included in a nine to five. There are many ways to spice things up. You can start a business, or volunteer. Or, you can always move to India on the promise of a “paradise” retirement home.

Craft-E-Family Holiday Blocks Review

I love holidays! I have so many different tubs that all contain different holiday décor. I love small wooden blocks that either list what holiday it is, or say simple phrases that relate to whatever holiday or season is the closest. Finding the proper blocks amid the other decorations can be a hassle, those things tend to be small. Well thanks to Craft-E-Family, I no longer have to worry about that. They offer a set of 20 Holiday blocks that interchange into over 75 different holiday and seasonal sayings. Three of these blocks have holiday pictures, the other 17 are six-sided letter blocks. Someone with a lot of intelligence had to have been the one that pioneered this idea.

The Craft-E-Family offers several different types of blocks from names, learning blocks and yes even toys blocks. There are also interchangeable calenders. You can also find decor and kids items.

Give Them Something to Scream About This Halloween with Streekers

Heading out to any Halloween parties this year? Streekers make a fun addition to any costume. Whether you’re going Gaga or ghostly, there’s a Streekers hair color to complement your costume this Halloween. From a fiery red hue (if you’re feeling a little devilish) to an eye-catching purple (if you’re ready to unleash your punkish side), Streekers offers a wide range of easy-to-apply streaks of temporary hair color to make your look really sizzle. My colleague has long, flowing red hair and is using green Streekers to add to her mermaid costume.

Think: Tricks, treats and totally trendy hair for Halloween.

Using an advanced liquid technology, Streekers instantly deposits bold, vibrant color that can be applied over mousse or styling gel. A revolution in temporary hair color, Streekers highlights wash out only when you want them out. The sleek, sponge-tip applicator guarantees flawless coverage and ultimate control for expertly-applied streaks.

To apply, lift dry hair up and away from the scalp in small sections, then apply Streekers from root to tip in long strokes. If you’re going for a multi-toned effect, wait one minute before applying the next color. When you’re ready for a new look, just shampoo as normal to rinse out the highlights.

Available Shades: Pink, Blue, Red, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Green, and Ultra Violet

Anti Monkey Butt Anti Friction Powder with Calamine Review

Some products are self-explanatory. You can hear the name and it all makes sense. You can figure out what it is for, or how it works. Yes, in some cases it is truly all in the name. When I first saw Anti Monkey Butt, I had no clue what it was for. I had to scratch my head and get over the laughter that the picture on the front of the bottle caused before I figured out its purpose. As outrageously named as this product is, it is very useful for many people who suffer from gout, those uncomfortable raw patches inside the creases of our legs, thighs, and yes, our butts.

Anti Monkey Butt offers products for the whole family. Which allows everyone to be comfy at all times. Products include:
*Anti Monkey Butt Powder (talc and calamine powder forrmula)
*Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder (cornstarch and calamine powder formula)
*Baby Anti Monkey Butt Powder
*Baby Anti Monkey Butt Diaper Rash Cream
*Safari Towels: The Shower-To-Go

Fall Foods from Kimberly Snyder

 Its finally fall and it’s time to indulge in the season. The colors of the leaves and the cool brisk air are the not the only things changing, some great seasonal fruits and veggies are in season and are loaded with a variety of beautifying nutrients! Celebrity nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Solution, Kimberly Snyder breaks down three of the best and most colorful fall foods for the season.

SWEET POTATOES
  Sweet potatoes contain the skin-brightening combination of vitamin A and vitamin C. Together, these nutrients help replace a dull complexion with a fresh face, while working to neutralize cell tissue-damaging free radicals.

Sweet potatoes’ brilliant orange color is attributed to their high levels of carotenoids and beta-carotene, which convert into vitamin A. Vitamin A is necessary for a shiny, well-moisturized head of hair as well as promoting a healthy scalp, which is essential for healthy hair growth.

Sweet potatoes are also rich in biotin, and vitamins B2, B6 and E. They supply a healthy source of iron, potassium, which help keep the right fluid balance throughout the body’s cells, along with copper, manganese and folate, which is especially important for pregnant women.

Choose sweet potatoes that have the deepest orange colors, which indicate the higher carotene content. Be sure to eat them with the skin on, which contains a high amount of fiber and nutrients.

SQUASH
 Fall and winter squash varieties have less water content than summer squash, and therefore provide more nutritional and beauty benefits. These varieties include pumpkin, acorn, butternut and spaghetti squash. With its brilliant colors, squash provides an excellent source of carotenes, and a good source of vitamins B1, B6 and C, folic acid, pantothenic acid, fiber, and potassium.

The B vitamins it contains are helpful in reversing the damaging effects of stress on the body, which may contribute to aging faster, and its vitamin C has a collagen-repairing affect on the skin. Squash also contains coumarins, which works with other nutrients to create a blood-thinning effect in the body, which is great to increase circulation, which is beneficial for glowing skin.

APPLES
 Pectin is the type of fiber found in apples, which makes up 75% of the apple’s fiber. While other fruits contain pectin, it is found in the highest concentration of all fruits in apple. Pectin comes in both a soluble and insoluble fiber form. Apple pectin is a helpful detoxifier, as it has been reported to bind to and eliminating toxic metals from the body, and keeps your system clean, which contributed to higher natural beauty. It may help prevent DNA damage by free radicals by acting as an antioxidant.

Konsyl Psyllium Fiber Review

Konsyl pharmaceuticals has a new product line called psyllium fiber. It is unknown by many people, thanks to a general belief that “fiber is fiber” and “all fiber works the same”. This is and isn’t true. While fiber does work in the same way, psyllium fiber has some distinct advantages over traditional dietary fiber. And Konsyl pharmaceuticals offer some of the purest psyllium available today.

I’m sure that you have all heard that fiber is an important part of anyone’s diet. You might have questioned why fiber is so good for digestive health. The science behind this is easy to grasp on a basic level. I actually find it almost self-explanatory, in a roundabout sort of way. You see, when I think of the word fiber, in general, I think of tough strands, like fibers in clothes or fiber glass. The fiber we ingest is similar, in that it is tough. It resists our body’s attempts to break down and absorb it. So instead of being digested and made into something useful by our bodies, it passes through our intestines quickly. As it passes through, it cleans by absorbing and dragging out all sorts of bad toxins, things like cholesterol.

Cystex Cranberry Liquid Supplement Review

Did you know that some 50 percent of women report that they drink a lot of cranberry juice when they suspect they have a UTI? This is according to a survey conducted for Cystex. Unfortunately, while studies indicate that cranberry may help prevent recurring UTIs, studies do not indicate that cranberries help treat a UTI once you already have one. I personally am not a huge fan of the taste of cranberry juice. For me, it is simply too bitter. So, to drink it everyday is just something that I do not want to do. 

New, clinically-proven Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex promotes urinary health with its unique, convenient, pleasant-tasting cranberry formula. More than just cranberry concentrate, its proprietary blend also contains D-Mannose, inulin, bromelain, and vitamin C, a combination designed to boost bladder health. One tablespoon, taken daily to promote urinary tract health, can benefit millions of women most susceptible to recurring,and most often painful, urinary tract infections.

Cystex Plus Review

There are certain issues in life that can be very inconvenient when they show up without warning. Though rare, these issues can be an uncomfortable topic for some people to talk about. One such issue is having a urinary tract infection.

These infections can be a nightmare and very uncomfortable. They also turn a quick trip into the bathroom into an experience that can be drawn out and painful. The burning is just too much when the infection is at its worse. Having something to ease the pain and help slow progression of the infection can make all the difference in the world during a time like that.

Mantain Your Hair Color on a Budget This Fall!

MAINTAIN YOUR HAIR COLOR ON A BUDGET

There is no denying that fall is finally in full swing! For many of us, the change in weather and temperature isn’t the only thing that changes. From cuts to extensions to coloring, the hottest hair trends can change as often as the seasons do and it’s no secret that looking good doesn’t always come cheap...or can it?

Andrea Pomerantz Lustig, author of How to Look Expensive, gives us some great tips on getting that perfect hair color on a budget and how to keep your new fall do in tip-top shape all season long!

HOW TO GET EXPENSIVE-LOOKING HAIR COLOR FOR CHEAP

BE A HAIR SPY
 Investigate women’s hair on the bus, in yoga class, or at the office. See a color you like? Ask who did it. Or walk into a chic salon you came across and check out the hair color on the employees. Ask who did it. It’s usually another employee. This can be a great way to discover up-and-coming colorists whose prices have yet to skyrocket. Chances are, they have apprenticed with the star colorist in their salon and will give you a great color at half the cost!

ASK YOUR STYLIST TO DO A FINER HIGHLIGHT AT THE ROOT, GETTING THICKER AND CHUNKIER DOWN THE LENGTH
 This process will avoid a severe root line and making it okay to grow out a little without having to spend the extra cash on the constant up-keep.

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR HAIR COLOR INVESTMENT

Once you’ve got your color where you want it, how do you keep it this way? Try these tips:

WAIT 48 HOURS AFTER FRESH COLOR BEFORE WASHING IT
 Although there are no studies to prove this works, it’s something that many colorists have suggested, so it definitely can’t hurt. Give your color some time to settle into your roots and hair.

KEEP IT DIRTY
 Not REALLY dirty, of course, but avoid washing it every day. The less often you wash, the less your color will fade. Use dry shampoo to sop up greasy roots between shampoos. A great low cost option would be the new Amika Perk-Up Dry Shampoo. It’s available at professional salons and folica.com for only $21 and leaves your hair looking clean, shiny, and beautiful!

USE HIGH TECH ANTI-COLOR FADERS
 It’s not a marketing hype. Products designed to maintain the color in color-treated hair can help prevent fading, keep color true, and put back needed hydration.

INVEST IN A WATER FILTER FOR YOUR SHOWERHEAD
 This filter will remove water minerals like chlorine from the water, which can fade or distort your color (turning it green or brassy). You can pick one up for only $20!

By following these suggestions, you can be sure to have beautiful head-turning hair color all season long without over breaking the bank. So go ahead girl, be gorgeous!
