Do You Have The Latest Style Of Skateboard Sunglasses?

Sunglasses are great, but these days they are less for the sun and more about style conciseness and expression. They also protect your eyes from the uv rays but why not look amazing doing it? Long gone are the days of just wearing functional shades, today’s skateboard sunglasses are incredible and eye popping. They make use of recycled materials and you can even find some phenomenal looking elegant wood glasses that are not blocky at all! They are gaining widespread popularity lately!

The Perfect Gift

My niece is very fashionable. She always wears the latest and greatest in clothing and jewelry. When she picked me up to go to a movie the other day I immediately noticed the wooden sunglasses she had on. I had to try them on. They were made of real wood. You could tell they were made to last. I had to have a pair. She reached around the seat and pulled out a bag. She had purchased a pair for me. They are beautiful! I wear them everywhere!

What’s wrong with this picture???

Just received my Secret Wishes Catwoman costume and had it on within the hour. The overall quality is pretty low, but it will serve its purpose for an evening of handing out candy to the kids in the neighborhood. I opted for the medium size (I am 5′ 11″, 130 pounds, small chested) – it fits comfortably snug with ample length in the legs (I have a 34″ inseam). I will still have to wear black nylons to cover the gap between my black heeled boots and the leg bottoms. I probably could have squeezed into a small but length may have become a factor and I am only passing out candy, not heading out to the clubs. :)The material is not very forgiving….if you don’t have a rockin body, it will show every bump and lump….so keep that in mind. It has a zipper which makes getting into it a bit easier but you will have to pull it on like nylons.The face mask is horribly shaped and I will have to use two sided clothing tape to get it to stick to my face appropriately. The “ears” are fine, just cheap plastic. And the belt is very large…will have to make it smaller to fit on my waist tighter.The BIG issue, and you can clearly see from the photo, is either 1. The sleeves are not long enough to meet the gloves or 2. The gloves are not long enough to meet the sleeves. I am tall, but I am not ape-like so guessing this was just an error in manufacturing. I have already ordered 22″ opera length gloves to complete my outfit. Also kind of confused as description does not state gloves are included, but my bag had them in there. Mistake maybe???Fortunately, my hair matches Anne Hathaway’s so no need to purchase the wig.I will enjoy this costume on Halloween!

Bill Murray at his comedic best

It is said that the role of Peter Venkman was originally written for John Belushi, but we’ll never know how he would have performed in the role. Fellow “Saturday Night Live” alum Bill Murray stepped into the role and ran away with the movie. Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd fit into the story like a glove in Ivan Reitman’s masterpiece, but Bill Murray steals his every scene – which means most of the movie – with a performance full of dead-pan, ironic, world-weary, been-there-done-that hilariousness.He has a sarcastic remark for every occasion, and the audience is the only one in on the joke every time.When prospective girlfriend Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver, who gets a plum opportunity to show off her comedic skills) gets possessed by an evil demon, she is transformed into a slinky seductress. Bill Murray has come over to her apartment and in his hilarious dead-pan manner lets the audience know that he recognizes all is not normal with Ms. Barrett. As hilarious and sarcastic as Venkman is, he’s at least a gentleman of sorts and doesn’t take advantage of the situation when the demon tries to seduce him.”Do you want this body?” Sigourney-demon asks him.He pauses for a perfect beat before replying:”Is this a trick question?”The special effects don’t look like the CGI visions that have been on screen for a couple of years (this was 1984) yet they’re part of the fun. Even so, the special effects serve the story rather than up-staging it, and when the movie was initially released I remember howling with the audience after the first special-effect ghost “attacks” Bill Murray and leaves him on the floor in a glistening mess.”He SLIMED me!” Venkman yelled, and we laughed our heads off.This disc is not dated by contemporary references – it’s just as hilarious today as it was in 1984, and it’ll probably be just as funny 100 years from now. The DVD comes with extras that add to the fun, and in the commentary tracks Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis show that “Ghostbusters” was an absolute highlight in all of their lives.Mine too.

True outdoor lights

When my review sample arrived I had the perfect way to test it for outdoor use: we are in our rainy season in Central Florida and I wrapped one of my palms in the middle of the yard to test it out.The first test was using the timer feature, where this would come on for six hours, shut down for eighteen, and turn turn back on for six. That worked, but that only proves that the timer worked. What makes this impressive is it endured blazing sun on the south side of my house, then torrential rain, and continued to operate like clockwork.Not only did it prove that it could withstand the elements, but the lights were exceptionally bright at night. Not glaring bright because this is the warm model with the light having an orange tint. Still, the illumination is impressive.The battery case is totally waterproof too. It was actually on the ground the entire test. I was frankly surprised that the batteries did not cook in the hot sun and prematurely fail, but since this did not come with those batteries (you need to supply your own), it would have not been germane to these lights if they did.To be honest I do not intend to leave these out permanently. I want to use them for temporary decor for parties and seasonal events like Christmas and Halloween. Still, if they were to be used permanently I am betting they they would survive because mine took a beating during my evaluation and continued working perfectly. I would love to see a solar adapter for these lights because running them on batteries would get expensive if they were placed in a permanent location.Bottom line: these light up outside spaces and objects beautifully. A few placed strategically in a yard or on a patio can create a magical ambiance.

Good Costume

I bought mine from a third party store through amazon, their name is “The Internet Department Store”. The costume arrived in about a week in a plastic mail bag. Estimated shipping time was 1-2 weeks, lucky it came early, otherwise if i needed to make adjustments to the costume or return and exchange i would only have 3 days to do it before my Halloween party. Costume is a bit thin but not too bad, i probably have to wear a jacket since it usually snows here around Halloween. This DOES NOT come with pants just to point out the obvious (different review said it came with it but it doesn’t). The belt is attached to the belt across the chest and both are velcro to fit. They look like they are made of cheap material with thread sticking out everywhere. Boot covers are a bit weird, dont know which side is front or back but i’ll figure it out. Buckles on vest hang loose which is kinda weird (check picture). I wear size L and XL but i choose L for this costume and its a good loose fit. T-shirts i wear in L are fitted and XL are usually loose. Overall i think this costume is okay for the price (~$40)but it would be a better deal at ~$35. I’ll Post pics later.This would have been a better costume if it came with the arrow quiver/holder or a bow, i think that’s what really makes it a Robin Hood costume. If it came with both those i wouldn’t mind the price.UPDATE: I’ve tried to upload a video review of this costume but it doesn’t seem to work..but i uploaded it to youtube. […]

What Distinguishes Virus Contact Lenses from a Conventional Contact Lens?

The special kind of lenses that makes your eyes look larger is the virus contact lenses. But would you be able to differentiate between a pair of normal contact lens and a pair of Circle Lens while purchasing one for yourself? If no, then go through the following guidelines. 

 

•    Normal and Circle Lenses have the same diameter.

•    The iris becomes larger and prominent due to the presence of a large ring at the centre of it.

 

•    Some regions are slightly tinted to cover the iris.

 It seems that they have no obvious difference when seen from the outside.

extasy novel that I would consider reading

eXtasy is the type of genre that I would consider to read. Although I only know so little about extasy books, I find them quite intriguing and enticing. Many people whom I know have read this have said that extasy genre is quite unique and refreshing in its own. Extasy has a mixture of romance, BDSM and other bold and edgy novels. It is designed for adult reading. I would look forward to the day that I could read an extasy novel. I have a feeling that I am going to be taken aback at first at its contents and story lines but afterwards I believe I would be coming back for this genre.

Virus Contact Lenses: Some Facts

Even though virus contact lenses is very much ‘in’ fashion nowadays, you need to be conscious and aware of the liabilities and responsibilities of wearing lenses. Eyes are your most important asset and you need to take care of them. After all, any kind of lenses are a foreign substance that poses a certain degree of threat. Therefore you need to take good care of the circle lenses as they are more soft and fragile that demand more careful handling. The Circle lenses are more comfortable to wear than the hard ones as long as you take good care of them. 

Great Value

So, I ordered these in my quest to find compression shorts at a more reasonable price than Under Armour’s. First, the basics. The shorts arrived on the day they were supposed to and the packaging was just fine. Zero complaints in this area.Now, onto more relevant stuff:Fit/Comfort:These shorts fit great. I have a 36″ waist and am 6’3″ tall. I ordered the large and have found the fit to be very comfortable. They fit as well as the Under Armour shorts I have and may actually be a little bit more comfortable. So far I have worn these working out and I have worn these under my clothes at work, and I am very happy with their overall feel, fit, and comfort.Quality:Quality has been good so far. The seams seem strong and the overall build of these shorts seems well done. These shorts are a little thinner than the UA shorts, but I’m not sure that isn’t due to a material difference. Either way, they don’t seem thinner in a bad way, just thinner. They don’t bunch up anywhere and so far I like the way they feel when wearing them. In general, the quality of these shorts seems high. In all fairness though, I haven’t had them that long and time will be the real test.Value:So far, the value on these is very high for me. Half the cost of UA and the quality seems to be close to, if not equal to, that of Under Armour. I wear this type of short working out and I wear this type of short under my work uniform and I have zero complaints so far. Assuming these hold up in the quality department, the value will only go up in my mind. I have no doubt I will be ordering more of these shorts and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good compression short who doesn’t want to be the premium price for the UA label.
