Twinkling Trees

Toners | What are they & why do I need one?

Like I mention in the video, I've seen so many videos of people talking about why they like a certain toner and how it worked so well but I haven't seen a single person talk about what a toner is, the different types of toners and what skin types would benefit from the different ones and why you should tone after cleansing. So I thought it would be beneficial for others if I made a video specifically about toners and answering the main questions that I had about them.

Thank you so much for watching and I hope you find this video helpful in understanding toners a little bit more.  

Ethel M's Chocolate Factory Cactus Garden

If you didn't know already, we have an Ethel M's chocolate factory here in Las Vegas (well it's technically in Henderson) which is pretty cool. And outside of the factory there is a cactus garden that you can walk around for free and check out all of the different varieties of cactuses that is there and there are quite a few. During Christmas they completely decorate the cactus garden into a beautiful place full of lights and decorations. Me being twinkling trees and having my obsession with them I absolutely love going there. It's absolutely beautiful and who can beat something free, pretty and fun to do. We went the other night and I just thought that I would share some of the video that I taped from it. It is a bit wobbly from my walking and filming but it's still pretty and my son talking about halfway through is by far my favorite part. Can you guess why?

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to pop in quickly and wish each and everyone of you a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a wonderful day and get to enjoy some of the things and people that you are thankful for. Among many things, I am thankful for each and everyone of you, my readers. I enjoy interacting with you through the comments and sharing the many things that I blog about with all of you. And if you're going Black Friday shopping tonight please be safe since it's always a mad house out there.

Happy Thanksgiving my twinkling friends!

I don't know what it's like to date in other cities but I'm sure it's got to be the same as it is here in Las Vegas. Simply "IT SUCKS". And of course you are probably thinking to yourself as you read this "yeah, it sucks here too" and I don't doubt you that it does. Dating in general pretty much just sucks in my opinion but that might have something to do with where I live. Let's just take a second to think about Las Vegas for a moment shall we. 

Las Vegas is a city that is focused on gambling, drinking, tourists, strip clubs and "beautiful people" that are either buff & ripped or young & skinny. It is a very stereotyped city and when it comes to what a beautiful person looks like, it has some seriously unrealistic standards. I believe everyone is beautiful or handsome but I don't think that there should but a set "type" of person that is when everyone is. For the normal and average person, it can be a bit hard to contend with. People are always keeping their options open here for the "next best thing" or person rather and it's really quite sad.

I was compensated two passes to view this movie for review purposes.
All opinions are 100% my own. 

From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” comes “Big Hero 6,” an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6.”

Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring breathtaking action with all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”). The film hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 7, 2014. 

Rated: PG
Runtime: 108 min

Before my son and I went to see the Big Hero 6 I wasn't exactly too sure on what it was about. Yeah I had seen the movie trailers on the tv but I either didn't see the whole thing or remembered much of them. Pretty much the only thing that I new about Big Hero 6 was that it had a white robot that looked like an adorable marshmallow. Who by the way is seriously the most awesome character in this movie.
