Hey Arnold! features an all-star voice cast, including Dan Castellaneta (the Simpsons), Francesca Smith (Recess), Toran Caudell (Recess) and Jamil Walker Smith (SGU Stargate Universe).

Ripley's Believe it or Not~Reality Shock~Review

Recently I was sent another book on Ripley's Believe it or Not Reality Shock and it has some very amazing photos in it. Its difficult to believe some of the things that are in this book as well as the last issue of Ripley's Believe it or Not but its all true stuff. Take for instance this one,
This lady is reported as having the tiniest waist of all time at only 13 inches around. Ethel Granger (1905-1982) wore a corset for decades but she did not come to public attention until the 1950's, and achieved her tiniest wait in the 1960's, by which time her waist had shrunk by 10 inches. She would sleep in her corset and gradually tighten the laces over the course of each day, until her waist was so small that she had to make her own clothes. She lived in Peterborough, England. Can you just imagine how uncomfortable this must have been?

Now on to this one,
This Chinese man was in a road accident and his nose suffered severe nasal trauma and became infected and damaged beyond repair. Surgeons decided to grow him a new one by implanting a tissue expander under the skin on his forehead. This was cut into the shape of a nose before cartilage from the patient's ribs was used to build the bridge of the nose. Lastly, sugeons constructed the nostrils. The nose grew on the man's forehead for more than nine months before being transplanted in place of the damaged nose. Now I am not so sure I would want a nose implanted on my forehead even for a month let alone over nine months. But at least this man now has a nose again in the proper place. So okay, how about this one then? This is not someone's eyes, its a pair of lips. They have attached false eyelashes to her upper lip and using tiny brushes to paint on a lifelike pupil, they created a third eye on her mouth. This lady has also decorated her lips with images of roses, apples and even the Northern Lights. In the lower picture you can see where her lips are parted and her teeth are showing. Not sure I would want to walk around like this either.
Now on to the "Queen of Nails"
and her toe nails
Now tell me, how can anyone even move around with nails like this or get dressed or do any housework or drive a car? So many things you wouldn't be able to do with these nails. How does a person get a pair of shoes to fit unless they are all open toed? What does this person wear in the winter months with these nails? Not for me thank you.

This is only a part of what is in this book and the gross things like food, animals and other things I have left out. Who wants to see a cake shaped and looking like a brain? I for one wouldn't even be able to eat it but its all in this fantastic book. You can go to the Ripley's website to see and read more. This particular book will be available in September. Hope you enjoyed this little peek into Reality Shock.
You can go to Amazon and pre-order the book so you are sure to get it when it comes out.

Dermagist Giveaway~US/CAN~Ends August 18/14 CLOSED

Are you tired of trying to find a body lotion that doesn't leave your skin feeling oily and greasy? Well I found the answer right here with Dermagist Hydropeutic Body Lotion. You just have to try this lotion. I have been using it daily since I received it last week and I am very pleased with it. My skin feel very soft and its not at all greasy or sticky feeling. It has a very slight lavender scent that comes through when you put the lotion on and so far I have not noticed any skin firming but as time goes on I am sure I will. This lotion absorbs into the skin instantly and I must say even my legs feel so much better. I have very dry skin and my legs get extra dry in the summer months. Using this lotion has made a huge improvemnt in the dryness of my skin. I love it. I also love that the lotion comes in a metal container.

A deeply hydrating and skin-calming formula specifically engineered to firm skin, calm and soothe irritation, and help protect skin from the toxins in the environment. Combining green and white tea for soothing and antioxidant properties with Sesaflash for its instant-effect properties along with an ingenious blend of moisturizing and soothing ingredients, the Dermagist Hydropeutic Body Lotion is an instant classic, and the perfect compliment to everyone’s beauty regimen.
The lotion is very nice and you don't need that much to rub onto your body. This should last quite a while before it runs out.

A little information on the lotion now:
Why is this body moisturizer so superior to the others on the market?

Because it is not just a simple cream that adds moisture to the skin. The Dermagist Hydropeutic Body Lotion actually nourishes the skin in 3 different ways:

The Hydropeutic Body Lotion is far superior to the majority of moisturizers on the market.

Most moisturizers have a very simple goal… to moisturize the skin. Well, Dermagist has incorporated 3 aspects into this fantastic body lotion.

Sooth and relax the skin, which can often be damaged by the environment. Ingredients like white and green tea have relaxing properties, and target redness and irritation too.

Deeply nourish and firm the skin, which can be starving for moisture, and show signs of looseness and wrinkles. Ingredients like Sesaflash and Shea Butter have been known to assist in firming loose skin, as well as targeting the look of wrinkles and lines.

3. Helping shield the skin from environmental elements, which can cause damage. Pollution, toxins and more are constantly bombarding our skin and making it look older and less nourished than it should. Chamomile, Lavender, and Tangerine oil are ingredients which make this body lotion a very well rounded addition to anyone’s skin care regimen.

If you go here you can see the 7 most important factors to consider when shopping for a body lotion. You can see that this is a list of the Top 10 List of Body Lotions and Dermagist is right on the top. Take a look for yourself and you will see why this lotion is so good.

Now one lucky person is going to win a bottle of Hydropeutic Body Lotion from Dermagist just like I received. Its an 8 fl oz. 240 ml container. It has the push top and I know you are going to love this lotion. So enter today and you could be the lucky winner.
