@Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex

At one point I would have never considered using an “anti-aging” product. I don’t have any wrinkles and I have a feeling it will be a while before I have to worry about them. But that was before I realized that these products provide amazing benefits to skin, even before the signs of aging appear. It’s called preventative skin care…

I have been using Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex ($79.95 for 1 oz) for the past few weeks. I know, I know–the name alone makes sound like it should be in my grandmother’s medicine cabinet, but I’ve had very positive results!!

My skin is smoother, softer, and even though this is a rich cream, I don’t have any of the oiliness that has plagued me in the past (go figure!). It also helps reduce discoloration and uneven skin tone. As the name implies, you can use it day and night and it has built-in SPF 15.

If you want to try it before you buy it, Hydroxatone offers a 30-day trial. Visit their website for details:

kisses, Olisa


That Perfect Dreamy Wedding

Now that we’re about to see the darkest human-vampire wedding of the century (in the newest Twilight movie– out this weekend!), there is just so much more pressure to create something beautiful and fantastic for a dream wedding! My personal style is far from Edward and Bella’s… I can’t imagine what their wedding will look like…or even what type of wedding cake topper they will have! I did a bit of research to find some fun and unique wedding cake toppers (since the cake is one of my favorite parts of a wedding) and I found some great ideas from American Bridal…

Monogram toppers are a classic but the font and glitter on these add a modern twist!

This one is fun too because it shows a bit about the couple’s personality. Too bad that doesn’t look like him and she doesn’t look like me. But the Ducati is close

Aw and I love this one! It’s so sweet!

What does your dream wedding cake topper look like?

We partnered with American Bridal on this post.

I went to the press screening of Twilight last night and I would give it 3 outta 5.
The first 10 mins was so emotional and had me in tears but then it quickly turned into more of an SNL skit to me. Terrible CG and awkward conversation left me going errrrr. The best part was the house in Rio and the “fetus” – “baby” – “possibly” line.  They told us to check our mobile phones but they forgot to tell us to check our common sense at the door too : / Forget EVERYTHING you learned in biology class.

The audience was excited and there was lots of cheering before and after the movie. The movie doesn’t end when her eyeballs go RED so stay in the theater and watch that extra 5 mins! The only reason I realized this was because I forgot my umbrella.

Womp womp. You can wait for the DVD.


New Music: Quan “Get Away” @donferquan

This song is touching, I never really heard any of Quan’s music, until this song. A very close friend of mine showed me this, and I’ve been in love with his music since. I’m such a music bug and this is one song that makes me emotional as it’s about his son that had pasted away, Kayden. Quan has a Nas like quality of story telling rapping which I think is a great way of getting your message across. Let me let this song show you how talented he really is because I can’t even describe it. What do you think?
