X-Men: First Class (Movie Review)

Image
(((((((Will Contain Spoilers...You have been warned)))))))

Summary:
Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr were known as Professor X and Magneto, they were both two young men who first met in the 1960's during the Cold War and soon become close friends. However, as the world falls close to a nuclear war, Charles and Erik with other fellow mutants must join forces to save humanity. Unfortunately, a nuclear war won't be the only thing tearing these two friends apart.

Opening Scene-Poland 1944
This opening scene is the re-enactment of the first ever scene of X-Men (from way back in the first movie). This tells me two things. First, we the audience are being transported into the past and that this movie is a new start to the X-Men franchise while also acknowledging the previous three movies.

I found it tender seeing Charles and Raven as children. Especially, seeing how Charles as a young child had such a kind and tender heart. While also having a mother that was never present. …

LA ROCHE-POSAY: EFFACLAR A.I. Targeted Breakout Cream Corrector (Review)

Image
This targeted breakout cream corrector from +La Roche-Posay UK is meant to penetrate pores to treat imperfections and to help eliminate them faster. This breakout cream is specifically for uncomplicated acne caused by periods, stress, fatigue and the sun which unfortunately has been happening to yours truly. Also, this is meant to even out the skin surface and it can be worn under makeup. This cream costs about $16 depending on where you get it but luckily for me I got it as a gift.

I don't know what has been going on with my skin for the past couple of weeks but I have been having pimple problems and I'm obviously not happy about it. I will say that my skin fairs better in the winter/colder weather. This summer I have come to the solid conclusion that I do not enjoy the warm weather aka summer. I don't enjoy being in the sun very much, thus, explaining my pale flesh. I don't like the heat nor the excessive sweating that is tied in with summer. I'm just a winter k…

L'Oréal: Visible Lift Blur Concealer (Review)

Image
Before going right into this review I would like to let all of you know that I am planning on reviewing a heck of a whole lot more of concealers because I need to find a way to conceal these dirt-bags of under eye circles. They have been the bane of my makeup existence and I need to find some magical concealer made from Unicorn horns and the tears of the stars to conceal this mess. If you guys and gals have any suggestions for me then please with the kindness of your hearts send me an email or comment down below letting me know which concealer will help improve my life. 
This visible lift blur concealer by +L'Oréal claims to blur the look of lines, spots and under eye circles which to me is exactly the problems I have with my under eyes. I have under eye circles and fine lines which I find for me are hard to conceal. So this concealer is going to have to prove its worth! This concealer contains 20 ml and retails for around $14 but y'all know I didn't pay that! I got it on…

Bite Beauty: Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Currant (Review)

Image
If you have been following my reviews on Bite Beauty then you will know I am reviewing the third gloss part of the lush fruit lip gloss collection. For those previous reviews you can click here for the shade Rambutan and you can click here for the shade Strawberry. Do keep in mind that in the future I will try to collectively review the same collection (gloss,lipstick,blush etc) in one post instead of reviewing them individually.

This gloss claims to be a highly pigmented vibrant lip gloss with fruit oils and is instantly nutritious for the lips. This lip gloss is 99% natural and is made with real fruit. The full sized gloss costs $25. I have the smaller version of the gloss. Currant is described as a sheer plum and has a high shine finish. It does have a fruit-like smell to it. 
Pigmented lips strike again! If you haven't been in the loop about my lips yet well let me bring you right into it. I have naturally pigmented lips that at times makes it difficult to have the true colou…

Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb (Movie Review)

Image
(((((((((((This review will contain spoilers. You have been warned!)))))))))))))
Summary: Larry Dalley (Ben Stiller) now the director of Night-time Operations at New York's Natural history museum must find out why the exhibits are behaving strangely, Larry learns that the tablet that brings all the exhibits to life has started to decay. Now it is up to Larry, the help of his son and the exhibits to find out how to prevent the tablet's magic from disappearing. 
Opening Scene: We see a father and son back in 1938 in a dig site in Egypt. By accident the son falls into a tomb and we see how the tablet in New York was discovered. Not only do we see the discovery of the tablet but we also see the discovery of Ahkmenrah's tomb and that of his parents. Funny enough this was the start of the circle of information. Of course there is some random guy saying that the tomb mustn't be disturbed or it will be the end of the world! This scene strangely reminds me if The Mummy; anyone…

Ipsy April Glam Bag 2016 | First Impressions

Image
(Boy am I really behind on these first impressions 😬 I promise I'll try to catch up quickly)

+ipsy is a beauty subscription service that for $10 or $20 for us Canadians a month you will receive 4-5 beauty products ranging from sample to full sizes. This is beneficial to those who want to try out different and new beauty products that you otherwise wouldn't necessarily have been able to find in drugstores. Plus the value of the the whole glam bag (all the products) you receive are higher than the $10 or $20 that you would pay. For more information on Ipsy you can click here.

For this month's glam bag the theme is Dreamers. The theme does match with the card that I received with my glam bag but yet again I don't see how the theme correlates to the products I received, unless there isn't supposed to be a connection.

On Remembrance Day By: Eleanor Creasey (Book Review)

Image
(I received this book to review and all opinions are my own)
Summary:  On Remembrance Day is meant to teach young children about remembrance and the toll of war. This book teaches them about the people who offered their lives in war, why we remember them and how we can honour them. 
Canada over the years have developed unique ways and traditions to honour and demonstrate respect for its fallen soldiers and veterans. Generation to generation there are Canadian families who have suffered the loss of loved ones due to international conflict and war. 
On Remembrance Day demonstrates the origins, traditions, and customs of Canada’s Remembrance Day in an engaging and easy to read way.

Thoughts and Review:
I'm going to be honest with all of you, as a Canadian I already knew practically everything that this book contained as far as traditions and customs. I will say that there were some monuments that were covered in the book that I did not know. But I am now glad to know of them. 

First off, R…
