I’m impressed with Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure!

I must admit that I ave spent a lot of time applying fake nails with the fake nail glue… And then I spent a lot of time trying to peel off the fake nail glue when my nails fells off. The whole process was a pain to deal with so I stopped the fake nails all together…

Then I tried imPress Press-on Manicure.

The process is easy, fast, and there is no glue to fiddle with, meaning there isn’t a bunch of glue left on my nails when the nails fall off! The colors are pretty and vibrant too!

Once I picked the color the whole process took about 5 minutes! Just look how good they look!

My only suggestion would be to have a bigger size variety, I have large nails and it was hard to find a match for them, other then that I just love them!

The pan itself is sturdy and heavy, with a heat resistant handle. The hardy handle is an excellent feature in my opinion, it really improves the quality of the pan overall. It offers a great grip so you don’t need to worry about it slipping out of your hand with a pan full of food.

Ozeri Stone Earth Frying Pan

Frying pans are one of those things I use nearly everyday but never give much thought to. As long as it fries my eggs, it’s good enough for me. I never really thought about ‘high quality’ frying pans. Until I used the Ozeri Stone Earth Frying Pan.

First off the pan has a natural stone-derived coating making it free from toxic and harmful chemicals while still being ‘non-stick’. You can fry up your foods without needing to add any unnecessary fat and you don’t need to worry about unnecessary chemicals either!

The solidly made frying pan has a very attractive ‘stone’ look to it, and the handle is sturdy with a nice heat resistant silicone grip, unlike my old frying pan where if my hand was damp it would slip all over the handle. It’s scratch resistant and easy to clean. It also comes with a green protector to use when storing your pan.

The bottom of the pan is magnetized with helps to even out the heat resulting in even cooking, which means you don’t need to use as much heat for the same amount of cooking time.

AcneFree – Acne Skin Care Products

I have been dealing with acne for a very long time, since I was 13 or 14 years old. I have tried so many acne products like ProActiv, Clinique Acne Solutions, countless drug store brands, and even some products not even on the market any more.

When I was given the opportunity to try out AcneFree products, I jumped at the chance. A system I haven’t tried yet, is comparable to ProActiv, and WAY cheaper then what I am currently using? Let me at it!

acne skin care products

The products I received AcneFree sensitive skin system, 2-in-1 Acne Wipes, and Therapeutic Sulfur Mask. AcneFree offers three different 3-step systems, one for sensitive skin, one for severe acne, and ‘original’. They also offer other skincare products that cater to acne prone skin.

I have used the 3 step system twice a day nearly everyday, and when I didn’t wash my face at night (I’m sorry, I got lazy a couple times!) I used an acne wipe, and I also used the sulfur mask 1-2 times weekly. I have been using the products for about a month now and while my skin isn’t as ‘clear’ as I would like it to be (I don’t think it ever will be!) I am very impressed.

Before starting with AcneFree I had been using Clinique for years, and it does not come cheap. Every 2-3 months it costs me $70. The AcneFree system, is just $20 for the SAME amount of product, and works just as well, if not better! I remember when I was a teenager, wanting to try the systems like ProActiv but not having the money, what teenager has $70 to blow on skincare?

The sensitive skin system is very gentle and isn’t too drying on my skin, however next time I think I would like to try to ‘Original’ system to see if it works any better for me.

Now the fun part, enter below for your chance to win the AcneFree products mentioned above!

A Popular Trend in Womens Dress Shoes

Today, there are many popular trends in the realm of dress shoes for women. One popular style of shoe is the slingback. It is a dressy heel with a unique design that women are wearing to many different types of occasions. Here are some of the ways that women are incorporating slingbacks into their wardrobes.

Many women enjoy wearing slingbacks with an evening dress. Some women like to match a pair of black slingbacks with a simple, black cocktail dress. Slingbacks are comfortable to wear for a party or event that lasts for a few hours. Plus, they are dressy enough for a special occasion like a play or a concert. Alternatively, she may opt for a pair of slingbacks in beige so they can act as a backdrop for a colorful evening dress. A pair of slingbacks can be subtle and stylish at the same time!

Some women wear their slingbacks to work as well as on special occasions. For instance, a woman may wear a pair of navy blue slingbacks with blue slacks. The shoes give her outfit an extra touch of flair that can make her look professional and elegant at the same time. Or, a woman may wear a simple gray pencil skirt with a ruffled hem as well as a blazer and a pair of black slingbacks. The shoes add appeal to this classic, businesslike ensemble. A woman who is looking for a pair of stylish slingbacks may want to start by visiting a place such as Peltzshoes.com.

The best of Brazil: An alternative guide to the World Cup

The upcoming World Cup in Brazil holds an importance for soccer fans that goes far beyond the usual four-yearly event.

Although Canada have only appeared in the final of the prestigious competition once (in 1986), that doesn’t mean it’s not an important sporting occasion for avid fans. Unfortunately the Canadian squad hasn’t qualified for this year’s event, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the World Cup.

Of course for Brazil it is a different matter, as the country can boast being the only team to have played in every tournament and they have also won the trophy on more occasions than anyone else.


This year the FIFA World Cup will be the 20th event in the series and will be held in Brazil from 12 June to 13 July 2014. It is the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the previous one being in 1950.

For Canadians wishing to travel to the tournament, there is a Temporary Resident Visa and Permits and Travel Documents Application Process that you need to go through. Booking all the travel arrangements, from flights through to accommodation and car hire is simple through amex travel ca where you can do everything online and even earn extra reward points in the process.


Planning a trip to an event such as the Brazil World Cup 2014 means far more than getting tickets to games themselves, although that can be hard enough. Choosing where to stay can mean finding a base close enough to be able to travel around to see your favourite team play in several locations, or entail cleverly choosing where they might end up if lucky enough to get through to the later stages.

O Jogo Bonito (“The Beautiful Game”) is Brazil’s national sport and the fever associated with the World Cup is already gearing up to be in full swing. This means that hotel accommodation is in short supply during the June–July period in major cities such as Rio and also where it is still available prices are extremely high.

For the duration of the tournament visitors to Rio can expect to pay around $450 per night for a no-frills double room near the famous beaches.

An alternative Rio

The natives of Rio, Cariocas, are renowned for their entrepreneurial spirit and staying with families who are putting up spare rooms for hire could be a great way of really getting into the spirit of the tournament.

Holiday apartments are another economical choice for longer stays, with week-long World Cup Packages at smart beach front studios and apartments in Copacabana starting at $4000 for up to 4 people.
