Fifty Shades Of Grey Official Trailer

Oh Ladies Oh Ladies, the wait is finally over to see a snippet of Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie that everyone has been waiting to see since the Novel was released. I have to admit, I wasn’t like the rest of the world; crazed when the book came out. It wasn’t a big to me, lets put it that way, but after seeing the trailer, I think my mind has changed…….. It’s kind of like every girls fantasy to be swept away by some gorgeous millionaire and travel the world. But, I’m not to sure about the whole bondage thing….. doesn’t interest me one bit..

This trailer gives you a peek inside of the closet of “kink”, the shy girl who’s life changes (Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele) and gorgeous Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. Fifty Shades is due to hit the theaters on Valentines Day 2015, but to get your fill until then, check out the trailer.

Product Review- Boscia Exfoliating Powder

Source: Sephora

Source: Sephora

Bosciathe company known, for their unique ingredients of cutting-edge botanicals and the latest scientific research has come out with a Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder. Once I put wet the unique powder to cleanse my face, the Tsubaki Oil was released and it went from powder to foamy facial cleanser. It removed dirt and oil from pores and I noticed a brighter complexion immediately. I deal with hyper pigmentation on both sides of my cheeks and honestly, I cannot believe the difference it has made in the lightening of the them.

It’s been a week now and from the day I started using it, my skin is starting to look even and the hyper pigmentation is slowly going away. I’ve tried so many products that I thought helped, but only to notice that they stop or don’t work at all. The Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder is gentle enough for everyday use and for all skin types. What you can expect with this product is that it has no Parabens, Sulfates, preservatives, artificial fragrances, color, gluten or alcohol. It’s also dermatologist tested.

The Boscia Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder can be purchased at Sephora $36

Gorgeous Man Hair

Man Hair….Why is that some men get all the luck and get those luscious locks that we women oh so lust after? I mean, we are the woman after all and don’t you think ‘we’ should get all those beautiful locks of hair instead of the men? I for one think so. We spend so much money on getting our hair so perfectly soft, supple, thick and shiny when a man such as say… Jared Leto gets it naturally?

What about all the rockers from the early 80′s heavy metal bands? Their head banging locks just flowing every so lightly in the air just makes me lust after it even more. I can just kick myself for cutting my hair when I was younger. I had such long, pretty and a lot of hair… until I got a stick up my butt and decided to cut it off.

It’s been downhill ever since… All of the bleaching, coloring, heat and styling done to it has just really done a number on it, but I have hope that one day, yes, one day… I will get the hair of men such as Jared, Sebastian and Brad (pre Angelina)… There is hope to attain that beautiful man hair.

Michael Kors: At It Again

In a recent post, I wrote how Michael Kors seems to be duplicating the looks of many other designers such as the amazing Louis Vuitton with his new bag “Jet Set Logo Tote”As a phenomenal designer, I just don’t get why you would want to try and duplicate another designers work. Yes, I can see how he is trying to capture the market of women who want that designer look without the designer price, but it’s getting to be a bit excessive now.

He has now come out with two more additional handbags that resemble the Stella McCartney Falabella Purse and Valentino’s Rock Star Tote and these are just a handful of others that he seems to continue to replicate. I also want to note that the “Falabella Purse” and “The Rock Stud”  have been in stores since last year. Am I the only one that seems to notice this? Is it normal for established designers with his stature to create handbags with such similarities to other big designers such as these? Me, being someone who buys nothing but authentic designer handbags, not because they are name brand, but because of the beauty of the handbag and the originality of the handbag.

I personally do not want to carry a knock off version of the original design of the handbag that I paid a pretty price for. In my opinion, its the principal of the matter, and Michael Kors duplicating the looks of many well known designers handbags could very well fall into the category of the black market knock off handbags.
