Let Oprah Give Your Next Gift

No, the former talk show queen is not giving away more cars. She is technically not “giving” anything away, but she is leaving Chicago. You know whenever you move you tend to have a garage sale to get rid of the stuff you do not want to throw away or take with you. Well, Oprah being Oprah cannot just have a simple garage sale. No she needs to auction things off. We tend to have garage sales for the extra cash, but do not worry Oprah is not a greedy woman. She plans on giving all of the proceeds from her auction are going toward her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation.

The auction will be held on April 25 through Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. The Auction site states Winfrey’s sale will include items from “English, French and Continental furniture and decorative arts, paintings, prints, drawings, porcelain, crystal, silver, memorabilia, clothing and accessories.”

So what are some of the things you can buy from Oprah?

The first thing you are probably wondering, which I know I am, is what items are the cheapest? Well being Oprah, she does not shop at Pier One so the cheapest option at her auction a set of three Graduated (at least they have an education) Italian Silver Candlesticks. They range from $300 to $500. Too rich for my blood!

Naturally, my next thought was “What is the most expensive item?” Brace yourselves. The most expensive item Oprah is auctioning off is this Richard Edward Miller painting entitled The Red Scarf. This 41X44 Inch painting is set at $80,000 to $120,000 bucks! You did not read that wrong, those 0’s are correct.

I am not too shocked, it is Oprah. Of course she has expensive, fancy things. I do not think any of us normal humans will be participating in this auction but if you are curios, you can download the catalogue.

What is Fit Tea?

I keep seeing this Fit Tea thing all over my Instagram. I am not a fan of weight loss gimmick’s. I think the only way to really get the body you want is to change your way of life. Going on a fad diet may help you lose weight for now but it will not help keep it off later. That being said I understand there are a few things you can do to help boost your metabolism, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Unless it is some weird pill manufactured in Germany and you cannot even read the warning labels. But this Fit Tea is a tea, so it must be natural, right?

I did a little research, first I Googled “What is Fit Tea?” and this is the answer I got “Fit Tea is a detoxifying tea blend of certified organic herbs which are formulated to enhance your weight management program as part of a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Organic Green Tea, Oolong Wu Yi, Organic Rooibos, Ginger, Pomegranate, Guarana, Birch, Stevia, Corn and Honey Powder”

Those are all words I know so it cannot be too bad. Fit Tea is supposed to detoxify your body, increase your metabolism, and your energy levels.

If these pictures are real then it looks like the tea really works.

They sell a few different pack options. You can do a 14 Day Tea Detox for $25.00, or a 28 Day Tea Detox for $45.00, which looks like just the tea. Or, you can buy the packs that come with the tea and some pills. I am really weary of pills but if you must, you can get the Super Pack, the Fat Burner, the Pro Pack, the Starter Pack, or the Pill Pack.

Whatever you choose, just remember, nothing can replace a healthy diet and regular exercise!

 

A Gift for the Makeup Enthusiast in Your Life

We all have that friend who looks like a 10 every day. Their hair is always done, their makeup is perfect and their outfit is always on point. It takes a lot of work to look that good! For me, I only feel good if my skin is looking good. I wear makeup every day but I make sure to protect my skin first. The best way to protect your skin is to remove your makeup before you wash your face. I cannot stress this point enough. I have probably already talked about it but it is that important. If you do not remove your makeup your pores will clog and you will wake up with acne– or worse. Wrinkles. (over time that is). But after we put all that work in, in the morning we can get pretty lazy at night.

I have the solution.

The Kmitch Makeup Eraser is the answer to your lazy makeup-removal problems. All you have to do is wet this pink plush material and it will remove all of your makeup. Even HD makeup and water proof mascara. There are no harsh chemicals in the Kmitch Makeup Eraser. The only thing it needs is water. The cloth is reusable. All you have to do is throw it in the washer. It will last 100 washes.

I have seen this thing all over Instagram. Everyone is using is, especially Blac Chyna, who always looks flawless so you know she knows what she is talking about.

I do have to say I have not found a makeup remover that I am in love with yet. Most products either dry out my skin or cannot get rid of all my makeup. I end up using more which costs me more money in the long run. The Kmitch Makeup Eraser is only $19.00 and like I said it is reusable. They ship worldwide too, I cant wait to get my hands (or face) on it!

 

The New Squeeze

Sometimes it is hard to get your kids to brush their teeth. Sometimes it is hard to want to brush your own teeth. You know the feeling. You have come home from a long day at the office (or school) you lay down at five o’clock only to realize that you have let time pass you by and it is already 10 o’clock. You are all comfortable on the couch and you really do not feel like moving. Seriously you do not want to get up. Then you start to remember, it has been a while since you last brushed your teeth. You really do not want a cavity, the dentist is expensive. You really do not want to go through all that pain. You know that if you do not get up and brush your teeth you will regret it later, but where is your motivation? Well, I have your motivation right here!

Squeezie_LS_2655c

It is called Squeezie! It is the toothbrush you twist on to your toothpaste. No more will you have to worry about your toothpaste falling off of your toothbrush. No more will you have to worry about getting the crusty, old part of the toothpaste on your brush. With Squeezie you just have to twist on the end of the brush and squeeze! The toothpaste squeezes through the tube and slides right up to your brush. If you ever needed a reason to brush your teeth (other than general hygiene) this is it!

The coolest thing about Squeezie? It was invented by a kindergartner! Seriously! I five year old named J. Diaz dreamed up this contraption. IF a five year old can become an entrepreneur than so can you! This kid has serious talent. What am I doing with my life?

Squeezie comes in two colors: pink and blue, and it is only $4.99! Get your Squeezie now!

What the Heck is This?

Virtual reality seems to be the latest thing in the tech market. We all want to experience new worlds! Maybe you want to step inside your favorite game world, or maybe you just really want to see Greece (but cannot afford it.) Well, for $49.00 that might change.

There is this new device in the making called AirVR. It turns your world virtual by using your iPhone or iPad. This is a really cool concept for a couple of reasons. First off, for the longest time virtual reality has just been a cool idea but recent advancements in technology take this concept from an idea to a reality (HA!)

Second, because it is such a new concept and it has to do with technology, we would expect it to be incredibly expensive. But, AirVR is only $49.00. Of course it is still in development so you cannot have it right away, but gosh $49.00 for a personal, portable virtual reality experience? That is pretty cool!

Lastly, it is cool because you use it with your iPhone or iPad. Something we already use every day can take us into new worlds we never thought possible!

The downside is that you will look really stupid using it.

AirVR-2

 

Why is this guy outside? Can he even see? Is he supposed to be walking around while doing this? These are questions I need answered! And we thought looking down at our phones all the time made us look stupid. With AirVR you will literally be glued to your screen! (without the glue though).

I always thought virtual reality was something you would experience in a giant cinema like room. But that is the power of technology, it can take you anywhere! Hopefully the places it takes you will not be into a post. Because you cannot see. Lets hope the inventors from CAD thought this through!
