12 Hole Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time

Picture

Last month I was given the opportunity to review the Ocarina of Time from the Legend of Zelda. I was really excited about this because Marshall wanted one for her birthday. And now we killed 2 birds with 1 stone (or triforce).

Check out our video of what we thought, since Marshall is a bigger nerd than me.


This Ocarina is definitely a must have for collectors of zelda items or other geek things. It is a ceramic made instrument. The bottom part has a triforce symbol on it to brand it even further. I love the color and the feel of it. It produces an adequate sound, but like all musical instruments, if you are looking for quality sound, you should purchase a more expensive one. However this one is great if you are looking for a great piece to make a part of your geek collection.

You can purchase this product on AMAZON along with a custom stand!

From the Company:
Do you worry about Link riding a Loftwing
Do you wish you could catch an updraft with your Sailcloth
Do you know anyone who’s traveled to the Silent Realm
Heard of Fi, dungeons, dousing, sheikah stones

If any of this sounds familiar you’ve found the Legend of Zelda collectors or fans dream!

Features:
*Handcrafted and tuned
*High Quality
*Kiln-Fired Ceramic Musical Instrument
*12 Holes
*Pitch: A4-F6 including sharps and flats

An easy to learn piece which can be mastered in a short period of time, with the ability to spend years improving your technique, discovering new scales and harmonies. The Ocarina is the perfect instrument to practice techniques and articulations, rhythms, speed development, precision, note transitions and different musical styles.

What’s in the box?
*One 12 Hole Ocarina
*One Instruction booklet delivered electronically attached to the shipping confirmation email

Not a cheap plastic knock off!

5 Spinoffs You Would Love to See Get Made #5FandomFriday

This is my very first submission to 5 Fandom Friday, which I participate on through the Female Geek Bloggers Google+ Community. Every friday we have a different topic we blog about. For the 5 spinoffs I would love to see get made, I decided to limit myself to television past and present.

Picture

We are currently re-watching Chuck. I forgot what an amazing show this is. Plus doesn’t everyone kind of have a little man crush on Zachary Levi?But anyway, now instead of being a spy, Chuck must be…a father! Wouldn’t you love to see Chuck and Sarah as a normal couple trying to raise a teenager and a couple of twin toddlers. AMAZING!


Picture

Parks and Recreation is probably one of my favorite shows of all time. I love the group dynamic and how they support each other (even Jerry, in their own way). Plus I associate with Leslie Knope with mostly everything except the political aspirations; scrapbooking, planners, and general nerdiness.Since *SPOILERS* the finale never really confirmed what happens to Ben and Leslie, I would love to see them fulfill their dreams in the white house. Imagine them dealing with foreign policy (much like their model UN debacle) while their triplets run underfoot. A whole new staff will be established as hi-jinks ensue!


Picture

Many of you might give me a great big *DUH* to this next one. Of course we all want to see Firefly continue. But I like to imagine a new show where Kayleigh and Simon play house in a community space station with River as the doting aunt/ babysitter. House being haunted by the ghost of Wash would be a really plus.

Picture

Recently we finished watching through Alias for the 3rd time, and as much as I do not care for the final season, I would like there to be a spinoff of the one thing I always wanted to happen.After living peacefully on a beach somewhere, Sydney grieves the loss of Vaughn as he suffers a heart attack. Meanwhile she visit’s Marshall and his wife for play dates with the kids. Then she learns to love again in the arms of…Will Tippin. (Hey we can dream right?) But hold on there, she gets tapped back into the CIA, and even more missions, although none about Rambaldi.


Picture

This last show presented a challenge for me. It is still on the air, but maybe this is not so much a spinoff as a location change. Hank and the gang must take on a whole new challenge: Theme Park Resort Medical Concierge. Tropical location with the added benefit of people having heart attacks from roller coasters and poking their eyes out from selfie sticks. Hank can be seen frequently running in Disney5Ks while Boris contemplates purchasing a water park to house his dolphins.

Anyway, I may have been kidding about some of this, but seriously, we love the characters too much to let them go!

Urban Decay Smoked Eyes Palette Review

A little while ago I did a Makeup & A Movie video about Mad Max using the Urban Decay Smoked Eyes Palette. You can view that below!

So I promised you a review of that palette, so here goes!

First off the packaging is what you would expect from Urban Decay. It is a nice fabric covering with a zipper closure. This is my first palette by Urban Decay and I am really in love with the packaging.

Inside, there is a nice mirror and it does come with a small sample of primer and a 24/7 black eye liner which I removed and am using separately.

Now it’s time for the swatches.

As you can see, Kinky basically blends right into my skin which for my light skin makes it a good highlight. I love Freestyle because it makes a good blending color.

Backdoor and Mushroom kind of swatch the same to me so I usually gravitate towards one or the other, but not both.

Blackout can be used to line your eyes, and it stays on pretty well!

 

 

 

For the bottom colors, there is a little more variety.

Barlust and Rockstar are my 2 favorite lid colors in the palette. Rockstar is such a nice purple color and if you layer it on, it becomes so pretty.

I am disappointed by Evidence because in the palette it looks like such an amazing blue color, but swatched it looks dark.

Loaded is green but it is very dark when swatched.

Asphalt is grey, and I would have liked it to be a little more silvery.

Overall, the quality of the shadows is there and they are blendable and wearable, as we have come to expect from Urban Decay. However, I don’t really feel like there is enough of a variety in the palette for me. Most of them swatch and apply so dark, it is like there is no way to have a gradient smoke on your lids. They just kind of muddy together until it is just all dark.

If you are experienced at using lots of dark colors or have superior application techniques, this might be the palette for you. However, I am not great at blending so I have a lot of trouble. Many times I have wondered if I should give this palette away, but the one thing that stops me is that I do not own any other Urban Decay palettes.

So until I find another UD (or someone gifts me one) I guess I will make do.

Comment below if you have a UD palette you wanna swap for this one!!!!

La Lune 4 oz Bottle of Pure Lemon Essential Oil Review

I just did a lemon oil review, but here is another. Lemon oil has become this staple in our house. We have so many essential oils that we use in so many products, but Lemon Oil is our favorite.

The scent in this product is very strong so we can use it in so many things! I received this product from the seller because we were wanting to incorporate more essential oils into our routine. We purchased some Woolsie balls and use this scent on them They go in the dryer in place of fabric softner and now our whole laundry smells like wonderful lemon!

I am also really excited to try it in some bath bombs and other DIY products. Really strong and natural scent, and I love that is its made with natural ingredients.

It comes with a dropper for easy application and  if you are going to use it on the skin, you may want to combine it with a carrier oil like jojoba since it is highly concentrated. Also, fun fact, it burns easily on the skin so wearing it out is not recommended if you do. This product is Vegan, Cruelty free and recyclable.

Purchase this product from AMAZON. 

From the Company:

This bag is not what I expected it to be. However is very fashionable. I love the pattern (i got the blue one) and it has little flowers on it.

The material itself is terry cloth but very durable and easy to clean. The straps are strong and I have no issues with it curling up or feeling unstable.

The zipper is easy to open but does not feel like it will break or anything. It is roomy, and I can fit my yoga mat and a yoga towel in it with no problem whatsoever. I love that something this affordable does it’s job so well. After using it for a few days, I can honestly say that this bag is going to be used a lot.

Laminau 12pc Makeup Brush Set And Rich Pigment Eyeshadow Pallete

20150726_083024

If you watch my Youtube channel you know palettes are my thing. I don’t care how much they cost, I want to try them all from the littlest Wet N Wild 3 Pan to a huge Coastal Scents 120 pan. So I jumped at the chance to review this and was so glad I did!

There are 14 shades in this palette and they are gorgeous. I love the baked and marbeling effect happening with them. The palette is bright and pigmented, and when I swatch the colors, they are creamy. Don’t believe me? Look at these swatches!

 

20150726_083114

 

My complaint about this palette is that in order to blend you have to do some work. Some of the colors are a little powdery (like the above pink) but most of them are not!

 

20150726_082924

 

Next let’s move on to the brush set, which is great and has a lot of variety. It comes in a very soft leather container with a leather flap to keep it clean. The larger brushes also come with a brush glove to keep them in shape. In my opinion they are missing a blending brush for creases. But other than that they are definitely good quality.

This set can be purchased on AMAZON for $17.50 on prime which is an amazing price for these 2 products alone, let alone together.

If you are looking for some variety and a jumping off point for your makeup collection, I highly recommend. This would also be a good set for any children looking for play makeup as it is inexpensive but good quality, unlike other “play makeup” sets you can buy at the toy store.
