SPIbelt Review: The Perfect Pouch for Athletes and Travellers

The first question that came to my mind when I came across the SPIbelt was what purpose could it serve? On the surface it appears to be a tiny, thin, storage pouch that can’t carry much. The SPIbelt was created by Kim Overton as a solution to her troubles transporting her keys during her runs. Now why would someone spend money to only transport their keys? Surely a pocket or fanny pack would do. I was mistaken in my initial impression of the SPIbelt. Ever since I received it, I have been using it during my weekend runs whenever I want to bring my keys, cell phone, and some money. Read moreRead more


iStyle Originals: Clothing for the iGeneration

Whenever I go anywhere these days, I can’t help but notice people using their various hand held devices.  The loud guy on the bus chatting with his buddy on his sleek new iPhone four.  The teen sitting beside me on the subway with his big headphones on, blasting rock music from his iPod.  The girls in the gym running while listening to music on their iPod nanos.  Apple stuff is everywhere.  Its “i” this, and “i” that, all the time!  For those who have really embraced the “i” scene, and are part of generation “i”, you can now wear clothing from iStyle Originals.

Have you ever seen a person who has a cane trying to drag or carry a suitcase along behind them?  It just isn’t convenient, and I am sure it is a big burden.  Do you ever get tired waiting in those massive airport lines and wish you had a chair to sit on?  Do your suitcases’ wheels always get stuck and force you to pick up and carry a piece of luggage that should roll?  The geniuses at Walkin’ Bag have solved all of these problems for you.  They call it the “Walkin’ Bag.” Read moreRead more

The oh-so-classic red lip has not gone out of style just yet. There is still some time left to feel like you are part of the old Hollywood glamour.

Cigarette Butt Litter Prevention Act

A new act proposed by Brant Liberal MPP Dave Levac, would have smokers paying upwards of $3000 to toss a cigarette on the ground. A City of Toronto bylaw already exists which fines individuals $365 for littering.  According to reports, around 4.5 trillion cigarettes are found on the ground every year worldwide, leading to chemicals into waterways and creating hazards for wildlife.  This proposed act, has only gone through its first reading and will not be talked upon until atleast next year.

Beauty Talk: It’s all about the Eyes – L’Oreal Eye Makeup Remover Review

The eyes are very delicate and thus need special attention in our day to day makeup and skin care routine, but wearing good quality products, like creams or even eye shadows is not the only way to help keep your eyes looking young and firm. In our daily lives we often find that not wearing any makeup cannot be a choice that we can make. Make up makes us look polished, put together and if done correctly helps us bring out the best of our features. However often when we think of makeup we think of the substances that actually go on the eye or face and are left there for the duration of the day and sometimes miss the key step we do at the end of each day which is removing everything we put on in the morning.

Beauty Talk: Simply Smashing – SMASHBOX Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer Review

There are many people out there that feel tinted moisturizers don’t give the same amount of coverage as foundation. I can only agree with them, and because different skin types need different amounts of coverage a tinted moisturizer might not be for everybody. However in my experience I have nothing to say but good things about tinted moisturizers, for someone who likes light, sheer coverage a tinted moisturizer will prove to be a trusty friend.

Amazing Mens Shaver: Shick Hydro 5

Let me preface this review by stating that I have an extremely fast growing beard.  My beard can be fully grown to the point of being on Grizzly Adams within a mere 10 days.  The biggest challenge that I have experienced over my 4 decades of shaving is that it is never close enough and it almost always irritates my skin.

I have tried literally every type of electric shaver from the High End Philips Arcitec with its 22nd Century looks to the Braun Series 7 that sells for upwards of $200.  The “regular” blade type shavers have not escaped my testing and evaluation either and the recent introduction of Gillettes Fusion Power which adds some vibration to the removable and replaceable blades.

$50,000 Perfect Smile

It seems that everyone wants the PERFECT SMILE. You can have the perfect smile as well, for an astonishing $50,000. Surprisingly enough, hundreds of these procedures have been done over the years and are gaining popularity in Canada. Richmond Hill dentist Allen Aptekar, specializes in doing “all on four” procedures, and takes about 5 hours to complete.

Individuals who have rotten teeth,  chipped teeth, or thinking about dentures have been open to the idea of getting brand new teeth put it, and people have even been taking out loans, just to get this dental procedure done.

I think it’s pretty ridiculous to pay that amount of money, but your mouth, teeth are a big part of your health, and people will pay a lot of money to make sure they are looking the best, and also feeling it.
