How I Met Your Mother DVD Review

In the uproarious Eighth Season of “How I Met Your Mother,” the arrival of baby Marvin reminds Marshall and Lily of things they need, like sleep, better jobs and sex! Meanwhile Barney uses his playbook to win over Robin, but not her scary dad. Marshall tries to right a wrong in court in hopes of becoming a judge, and Robin’s past is judged. Ted designs an amazing building, and also has designs on Barney’s half-sister! But does he meet his future wife? Check out all 23 hilarious, legend – wait for it – dary 23 Season 8 episodes, featuring guest stars like Paul Shaffer, Ralph Macchio and Kyle MacLachlan!

How I Met Your Mother is one of the funniest TV series I have ever seen.  It is hard to believe that this is the eighth season. I am a little sad that the ninth season is the final season but am so happy that this show received so many years. The actors portray their characters perfectly and really become them. My hubby and I can also relate to all of the new baby moments. 

Throughout season, eight you get to enjoy funny moments, humor, and moments that will have you say ‘what’. I am glad that season eight did tie up many loose ends, which will allow season nine to make the series complete. 

Where to purchase: You are able to make a purchase from local retailers. You are also able to purchase How I Met Your Mother: Season Eight from Amazon for $24.99.

Posh Comfort Car Seat Canopy and Blanket Review/Giveaway 'Baby Gift Guide'

With the cold weather here, I want to make sure Lillian is being kept warm and cozy in her car seat when we go places. There are several different covers I could use to help keep her warm. I could use a thick warm blanket or a cover that attaches to the car seat itself with elastic. However, both of these things while I am using them can be too close to Lillian’s face. I personally want to use something that keeps her warm and at the same time stays off her little face. Posh Comfort offers very cute and unique car seat canopies and blankets that attach to the handle of the car seat. 

The car seat blanket is an adorable way to keep your car seat clean and your baby swaddled while on the go. This patent pending car seat blanket is a wonderful addition to any car seat. The blankets unique dimensions allow the baby to be securely fastened and still enjoy the comforts of a blanket. The blanket is easy to use and reuse. It helps to avoid the inconvenience of the inevitable accident with babies, because it is machine washable. It is 100% made in the USA with designer fabrics and professional construction. Your baby will be comfortable and your car seat will be stylish. It is the perfect addition to any infant carrier.

Hailee Steinfeld Style with Biore

Last night, Hailee Steinfeld walked the red carpet at the premiere of her latest film Ender’s Game. Hailee looked as glamorous as ever with help from Celebrity Makeup Artist Steven Sollitto. The Oscar nominee sported a fantastic, white sequined Yves Saint Laurent top with playful red lips, paired with tailored black pants for a polished, stunning look.

Here, Steven Sollitto spills his secrets to achieve Hailee’s flawless look as she walked the red carpet last night! 

“Nothing can be taken for granted on such a big night,” Steven explains. “So, to make sure Hailee's skin looked its best we started by using Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub to exfoliate and refine the skin. I can't express how important a clean healthy canvas is for makeup. The Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub feels fresh, lathers beautifully, and smells clean. A little attention to your skin before a big night goes a long way.”
Here are Steven’s tips for creating the look:

**To make sure Hailee's skin looked its best, we started by using Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub to exfoliate and refine the skin. I can't express how important a clean healthy canvas is for makeup. The Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub feels fresh, lathers beautifully and smells clean. A little attention to your skin before a big night goes a long way.

**For moisturizer I used a Light Cream before applying a MAC Face and Body foundation, which I find works well on most women. Plus, this foundation allows me to go light or heavy depending on the area of the face.

**Originally we were going to do a wet glossy red lip to match the top. We all loved it but then thought about the longevity of the look. I didn't want her worried about her lips as she was doing interview after interview, so we used the Jouer Riviera Gloss to help mimic the sequins of her top.

**To highlight the eyes, I used purples hues to bring out the gold in her eyes. To start her eye, I brushed shadow a bronze all across her lids and underneath her bottom lashes from Votre Vu called Copper Suede. Then, in order to give her some definition at her lashes, I used NARS Gel Liner in Tatar (this is a purple that reads black to most people, but it is softer) as well as MAC's Strong Willed Pencil, which I smudged back and forth for a softer look. Next, I took a small but wide eye shadow brush and swept MAC Red Violet under her lashes and out at the corners of her eyes. I lined her inner bottom lids with Laura Mercier's Violet Pencil. Two Coats of Benefit Bad Gal Lash in Black and her eyes were ready for those flashes on the red carpet.

**On Hailee's cheeks, I can't help but use Laura Mercier's Praline Creme Cheek Blush - I just love the color. A very up-to-date choice in all its peachy apricot.

With her hair pulled tight up in a sleek high pony, Hailee looked like the young star she is.

Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub- A soap-free, creamy pearlized formula designed to lift away pore-clogging dirt and oil. The cleanser contains exfoliating microbeads to unclog pores and salicylic acid to prevent blackheads and breakouts from forming, keeping your summer complexion fresh and clear. $5.99; Select food, drug and mass merchant stores. www.Biore.com
