Every once in a while, I receive a Sephora Beauty Insiders sample that's actually worth the container it's packaged in. Recently I snagged a delicious paraben-free body butter that's delivers real moisture. The guava passion scented butter is infused with various oils and shea butter to provide long-lasting moisture.The beeswax in the product is supposed to keep that moisture locked into your skin. In my opinion, it works pretty well. I will definitely purchase this $16 product in the future. It is available in 9 mouth-watering scents.
Which store brand products work for you?
In The Theater
So did you see it? Were you able to catch either the Soloist, or Obsessed? If you are anything like me, you made sure you packed those two movies into your schedule this past weekend.
Obsessed is basically what you expect it to be, no real surprises but it wasn't poorly done.
Now let's get down to what some of you want to know about- Beyonce's acting. I think with each roll there is a some improvement in her ability to deliver a realistic performance. Normally I would say you either have the acting chops or you don't but I think Mrs. Carter falls somewhere in the middle. She certainly is no Monica when it comes to acting (she is simply dreadful) but she isn't Mos Def either. Work still has to be done in that department because she, in my opinion, fails to really connect with the character I still feel like I'm watching Beyonce pretending to be some character. Well PJD isn't that what acting is all about? See when I see Jamie Foxx playing Ray Charles or Nathaniel Anthony Ayres Jr., I don't see his ugly Wanda character, or any trace of his previous portrayals- I just see the character. I am able to be lost in the moment and I can fully embrace the character. Beyonce on the other hand makes me wonder when she is going to break into a rendition of "Put a Ring on it".
I didn't expect too much from her and let's face it her father was listed as one of the executive producers (I'm not hating, I'm just saying..lol) so as they say, it is what it is.
Of course Idris and Ali delivered in their performances. Overall, it wasn't a bad movie, I will give it 7-7.5 stars.
Jamie, Jamie, Jamie wow what an actor we have in our time. He was a believable schizophrenic and played the part well. The intelligence of Mr. Ayers was not overshadowed by Jamie as he tried to shine real light on Nathaniel's mental illness.
It was beautifully performed by both Jamie Foxx and Robery Downey Jr.
GO SEE THE SOLOIST!!!!!
Here is a quick video on what I do with fruit on the fat smash diet.
I forgot to post on this today so check out Afrobella's post on Oprah's hair.
