Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

vintage valentine's day card

In an effort to help you decide which of the Valentine’s day movies (2011) you might want to watch, we at ShesSmart.com have created a poll for you guys to vote on which movie has the best on-screen couple. This is a romantic movies poll for anyone, so vote away!

This will help you decide what you want to watch on Valentine’s day, hopefully.

As for the Valentine’s Day movies mentioned:

  • No Strings Attached is in theaters now. Portman gets a yay, but Kutcher gets a meh.
  • Blue Valentine is in theaters now. I want to see this, although I know it’s more of a serious/twisted love story.
  • Never Let Me Go is out on DVD and Blu-ray. It was not given enough promotion, but don’t let this British movie gem escape your watchful eyes! We even have a giveaway for it coming up!
  • Love and Other Drugs is still in some theaters and is being released on DVD and Blu-ray on March 1 2011. Anne Hathaway is AMAZING and Jake Gyllenhaal? Double Yum. We’ll have a giveaway for this coming soon, with three winners!
  • I plan to see these all, but have yet to see any of them! Oops! They’re all on my Netflix que though. So your voting will help me decide which you guys think is the best movie to watch asap! Take your duties seriously! And then buy some Redi Whip, because that stuff is always good. Mmm. Just a lil V-day advice from me to you!

    McDonalds Hot Chocolate Review (My Burnt Tongue is Angry)

    Monday, January 31st, 2011

    mcdonalds hot chocolate review

    You guys, I cannot give a good review to the McDonald’s Hot Chocolate! The reality is that there are two kinds of hot chocolates: good hot chocolate or AWFUL hot chocolate.

    I ordered it last night at a McDonald’s drive thru, and my friend ordered a milkshake. And guys? I totally should have gone for the milkshake.

    McDonald’s Hot Chocolate Review:

    The description of the McCafe Hot Chocolate is “steamed whole or nonfat milk, chocolate syrup topped with whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle.”

    So, when I went to take a sip my tongue was scalded with burning hot liquid. I almost screamed. I had to have a sip of my friends milkshake. The roof of my mouth was also burnt. I’m typing this the next day, and it’s still feeling raw and burnt.

    I know that the McCafe Hot Chocolate is said to be made with milk it tasted like it was made with water. There was whipped cream on the top, but it melted by the time I got home to open it. And they served it without asking me if I wan ... Read More

    Chocolate Covered Strawberries Review and Proflowers Giveaway

    Sunday, January 30th, 2011

    chocolate strawberries pictures

    Something I always associate with Valentine’s Day is chocolate covered strawberries. My Dad would always bring home a box of them. They’re not easy to find, and only last about 5 days (my own personal assessment.) And it’s not just like fondue where you dip a strawberry in some melted chocolate. I mean, you can do that, but that’s not what’s SUPER GOOD.

    Want a visual?

    Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

    So, here’s the fun part. I found out where you can get really amazing, suburb-quality chocolate covered strawberries year-round. Did I try them? Oh, I TRIED THEM. Oh yes. AND THEY WERE DELICIOUS.

    Our Ongoing VibraSlim Reviews: Does VibraSlim Work?

    Thursday, January 27th, 2011

    good vibration machine

    Does VibraSlim work? Yes! And I aim to answer this question with an in-depth look at VibraSlim and giving you my VibraSlim reviews.

    What does vibration fitness do? I got started with some vibration exercise research because I really wanted to know HOW and WHY this machine works. Vibration exercise machines are supposed to help your circulation, strengthen joints, tone muscles, increase bone density and help aid weight loss. Not a bad list of things, eh?

    Vibration Exercise Research: The whole-body vibration machine creates a muscle stretch reflex. (Wiki reference: Stretch Reflex) I could try to explain this in very nerdy detail, but basically, it’s a muscle reflex that moves your muscles back into place when they’re stimulated. You should also definietly check out the Wiki page for whole-body vibration for lots of details. This exercise was created out of a need to help astronauts have more bone density. And now we get to use what helps astronauts. It’s enough to make me want to pull out my old VHS copy of Apollo ... Read More

    Repechage Reviews of the Hydra Dew Collection (Severe Dry Skin Treatments)

    Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

    seaweed in beauty treatments

    Seaweed in beauty treatments isn’t just an idea in movies with fantastic spas – it’s a reality. An affordable reality that actually gives great results! What we need as we age is severe dry skin treaments. And that’s just what you get with Repechage.

    Pronounced: Re-pe-shaj (noun: to rescue; second chance)

    I submit to the ways of the seaweed! You can say “I dew” about having more moisturized skin by using the Professional Skin Care Hydra Dew line from Repechage. They use seaweed from the coast of France in their products, and you can tell the difference in your face. They sent along the Hydra Dew Start/Travel Collection for me to test. Five Hydra Dew products are put in a waterproof travel bag (score!).  They Hydra Dew collection is for dry skin. Do I have that? Uuumm, yes. Not that I’m proud of that fact. But Winter doesn’t exactly make it any easier. (And I did buy a humidifier last year, but cleaning it monthly was such a pain that I didn’t put it out this winter.)

    I was able to try all 5  of the Hydra Dew ... Read More
