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 d├ęcor. 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

$11.95  at all ULTA stores or online at www.streekers.com

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

Khaki Scouts Guide to Protecting the Community

As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore -- and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.

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.
