Jimmy Fallon Steals South Florida Luxury Auto Commercial Starring Lebron James

Jimmy Fallon Steals South Florida Luxury Auto Commercial Starring Lebron James

This is the week that Jimmy Fallon has taken over the Tonight Show and he must have loved a used car commercial so much that he spoofed it. In 2013, South Florida Luxury Auto located in Pompano Beach Florida and owned by Derek Cavan, created  a commercial featuring Norris Cole from the Miami Heat.Thursday night, Jimmy Fallon had another Miami Heat Superstar on his show, the King, Lebron James. Lebron and Jimmy were in an office setting playing wastepaper basketball.
The creator and writer of the original commercial, Tonia Ryan, could not believe what she was seeing when the Tonight Show Aired Thursday night. Tonia said, "You have got to be kidding me! When you see our commercial all of our salesmen at the dealership are bored and playing wastepaper basketball and the new guy walks in and its Norris Cole. On The Tonight Show segment their new guy was Lebron James. Then Lebron shows all the office workers up and explains how to play basketball, just like I had Norris do on our commercial. I wrote in my script to have the boss walk out and ask what everyone was doing very stern. Jimmy's show they did the same thing with the boss except they added a cuss word. Jimmy and Lebron shrugged their shoulders like they were in trouble by the boss just like I wrote for my commercial script. That's the same script I wrote without singing and cheerleaders. Perhaps LeBron liked the commercial we did with Norris so much that he brought the idea to Jimmy Fallon for them to recreate or one of Jimmy writers saw our commercial on YouTube and decided my idea was a great idea. I guess that's the biggest form of flattery.  But still it's not too cool to steal my entire idea and concept. Either way, they might want to hire me as a writer since they liked my work so much or at least say thank you for the idea."

Emily Maynard has signed on as the star of The Bachelorette! The Southern beauty's season on the show is bound to garner more viewers than any other installment of the ABC franchise, given her immense popularity with fans. Emily Maynard is already known to fans as the stunningly beautiful ex-fiancée of Brad Womack from The Bachelor, and the Daily Mail confirms that she has now agreed to appear in The Bachelorette. One thing is certain: Maynard is going to make the most beautiful bachelorette yet. If you're wondering what some of her beauty secrets are, read on!
Now that she's back in the spotlight, many are wondering about Maynard's beauty secrets. Luckily, she has shared them with The Possessionista. What fans may find hard to believe is that even the seemingly flawless Emily Maynard has beauty concerns! One of them is her sensitive skin. According to the bachelorette, she has "the most sensitive skin in the world." The Possessionista talked to Maynard about her skin care regimen, and she shared the following details: "Seriously, if I even dream about going to bed without washing my face I break out. Every morning I wash with Obagi Gentle cleanser, Obagi C-Exfoliating Day Lotion, and then Elta SPF. At night I wash my face with Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser, Retin-A, and Sothys Revitalizing Serum."

Maynard's hair is the target of much envy from Bachelorette fans. Discussing how she achieves soft waves in her platinum locks, Maynard said, "I go section by section starting at the top and curl it with a curling iron and then clip a velcro roller in it. You roll everything away from your face and put the rollers on the side vertical. I leave them in until I'm ready to walk out the door and then spray with hairspray. My splurge is Aveda, but for everyday I use TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Hairspray."

The Daily Mail reports that Maynard will begin filming The Bachelorette in March. It will be exciting to watch the single mom find love when her season debuts. It will also be fun to see how Maynard's approach to beauty changes for her season on the show.

Latisse for your dome? Eyelash enhancer also thickens thin hair

The drug, which in its earliest, unsexiest incarnation existed solely as a glaucoma treatment, is best known as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved wonder drug that can grow and darken your poor listless lashes . Now, it's being tested for a new use: growing hair on your dome.

No one tracks just how many doctors across the country are using Latisse off-label to target hair loss, but Dr. Alan Bauman, a Boca Raton, Fla., board-certified hair restoration physician has been using the drug this way for about three years, beginning around the time the FDA approved it for eyelash growth in December 2008. He describes his own personal "eureka!" moment:

"Patients who were using it for eyelashes sometimes have eyebrow problems, so it’s a short hop to the eyebrows," he explains. "So, of course, if it was working there, too — from the eyebrows, it’s just a short hop to the hairline."

Allergen, the health care company that manufactures the eyelash enhancer, is currently testing the safety and efficacy of a new formulation of bimatoprost, the active pharmaceutical ingredient in Latisse, in growing hair on the scalp, says Heather Katt, a spokeswoman for Allergen.

The appeal of using Latisse for hair loss is its ease and convenience, as it seems to only require one drop to the affected area once a day; minoxidil (better known as Rogaine) requires two, and Propecia requires daily pill taking.

Bauman says he sees about 1,000 new hair loss patients each year, about 700 of which end up on some kind of medical management — and so far, he's only used Latisse on a "couple dozen" patients, usually those who are allergic to the usual treatments, which is what happened to 70-year-old Rhoda Kelly.

Kelly's hair was thinning a bit on the back of her head, so she tried Rogaine, but suffered a bad allergic reaction. So Bauman suggested she try Latisse.

Kelly started to see noticeable results about four months after starting Latisse, as her thin hair started to grow in thicker. Now, 14 months later, Kelly says, "My hair is in much better condition — it looks healthy." She's still using Latisse, combined with "a slew of other vitamins," including a pharmaceutical-grade biotin and a marine-derived protein-polysaccaride, and a protective sun hat.

On the left is a photo of Rhoda Kelly's hair before using Latisse, which had started to thin a bit. On the right, Kelly's hair is thicker after using Latisse daily.

Kelly, by the way, has strawberry blonde hair, which has gotten lighter after years in the Florida sun. It hasn't darkened after using Latisse. When Latisse first hit the market, much ado was made about one of the more surprising risks: In rare cases, it could cause light eyes to turn brown. Bauman says he hasn't seen any evidence that this applies to hair, or the skin on the scalp, for that matter.

The major drawback: It's expensive. Each 2-ounce bottle costs $100 to $150 — and some patients will run through two or three bottles a month, Bauman says.

"Expense is a big disadvantage, but perhaps the biggest problem with this technology is that it does not restart hair growth for hair that has stopped growing," points out Perry Romanowski, a cosmetic chemist and one of the brains behind the popular beauty blog, The Beauty Brains. "If it works on scalp hair at all (and this hasn't been definitively proven), it will only be able to thicken existing, working hair follicles."

Basically: If you already have a bald patch, Latisse can't help you there.

"Since what people really want from this product is something that will bring their hair back, I suspect that they will be disappointed because that will not happen," Romanowski says. "Are a few thicker, fuller strands going to be worth the expense? Perhaps to some people."

Is It Good To Try Multiple Brand Skincare Products Simultaneously?

Is It Good To Try Multiple Brand Skincare Products Simultaneously?


Most women pick their skincare products randomly and it is also not uncommon to see people using skincare products from multiple brands simultaneously. Now the question is, is it good to use multiple brand skincare products simultaneously? Will such a practice have any unnecessary side effects on your skin? These are questions that people have regarding skincare products. Though hundreds of women mix and match skincare products from various brands it is always prudent to stick to a single skincare brand for all your skincare needs. This will ensure additional safety to your skin and you will not have to worry about unnecessary side effects resulting from the use of multiple brands.


Some times multiple brand skincare products may be incompatible with one another. You will not know this until you use them together but this is too big a risk that you will be taking on your skin which is of course the most sensitive organ of your body. So to avoid running into such problems, it is best to find top skincare brands that have everything you need rather than mixing and matching your skincare products. For example popular brands like Obagi, Jan Marini, La Roche Posay etc., give you good collection or good range of skincare products that will take care of all your skincare needs.


If you still want to mix and match your skincare products for some reason, then it is best to consult your dermatologist to check whether the brands that you are choosing are compatible with one another. When used individually you may not face any problem with them but when used together with another known brand or other unbranded product, they may trigger certain skin reactions. Such reactions may range anything from mild to severe reactions. So it is best to take the safer path.


Whether you are choosing multiple skincare brands or sticking to single brand, you need to choose only the trusted and mostly used brands. This will help you from unnecessary skincare problems. As many people have already tried these products, there are lesser chances of developing any side effects using them though everyone’s skin type is unique.


You can also checkout online beauty forums to see whether people are facing any problems with the brands that they have used. If there are any issues or problems relating to a particular brand, it is advisable to stay away from them because you will have plenty of options these days when it comes to skincare products. After all these testing, researching and trying once you have found a brand that is compatible with your skin, it is best to continue with it for life so that you do not have to endure this long process again.


The next time you are ordering your skincare products remember the above factors and make wise choices. You should always take your safety seriously and cost savings is only a secondary factor while ordering skincare products.

Fighting The Effects Of Sun Damage

Fighting The Effects Of Sun Damage


Prolonged exposure to sun can cause a number of skin related problems. Most of the sun damage related problems can be easily avoided with basic precautions. One of the common forms of sun damages is sun burn. Here the skin surface that is exposed to sun for a long time gets affected. The affected area first gets reddened and in the successive days, the skin in the affected area turns brown resulting in flaky skin. Sun burns can be painful and leave temporary ugly scars on your face.


Another common form of skin damage caused by sun is sunspots. If your skin is exposed to sun for a long time you will form brown patches on your skin. These spots will be developed in areas that are exposed to sun and normally found on the face and arms. These sunspots are not painful and they are not really harmful to your body but they certainly make your skin unattractive.


Thirdly, over exposure to sun can hasten the pace of aging and it can make your skin look old at a much younger age. Your skin will also get wrinkles at a very early age with extensive exposure to sun.


There is yet another serious problem associated with sun exposure. The ultraviolet rays in the sun rays tend to increase the chances of cancer. It is therefore recommended to avoid direct exposure to sunlight as much as possible.


Not everyone is aware of all these sun damages. It is important that you protect your skin against all these risks and avoid your skin from getting aged look prematurely. You will be able to most of the sun damages by making use of sun blocks, sun screens or what ever it is called. These sun screen lotions or creams will give a protective quote on your skin. You should apply your sun block before you move out of your house. Try to find reliable brand sun screens and sun damage control products like Obagi sunfader. You will find many other top brands with equally effective sun blocks. Some of the brands that you could try safely include Jan Marini, SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, etc.


What is important here is to follow the instructions that come with the product. The effectiveness of the sun screen that you use will vary from one brand to another. The duration for which you enjoy the protection will depend on the quality of the sun damage control you are using. It is important that you go with the instructions to get the fullest benefits.

Dealing With The Signs Of Aging On Skin

Dealing With The Signs Of Aging On Skin

As biological beings we are destined to age and grow old. There is nothing we can do about this process. Though the inmost cravings of every human being are ever youthful look and immortality, we are very limited in this area. The best we can do here is to minimize the signs of aging and postpone these signs that remind us of old age.

Unfortunately the aging process is further speeded up factors such as poor life style, undue stress, work pressure, unhealthy eating habits and the like. Experts distinguish between chronologic aging and environmental aging. We cannot stop chronologic aging but we certainly can minimize the adverse effects of environment aging.

We expose our body to excessive UV radiation, exposure to sun, polluted air, harsh climatic conditions and all these will take its toll on our skin. This does not mean that we have to lock ourselves indoor and this is also not practical. So we need to look for solutions elsewhere.

Lot of researches are underway today to fight the signs of aging and minimize these signs as much as possible and postpone these signs as long as possible. Researches indicate that formation of free radicals in our body plays a great role in the aging process. This has triggered the use of antioxidants in the anti aging products. Tests indicate that topical application of anti aging products whose major ingredient is antioxidants slows down the pace of aging in skin. Which means, when you are picking your skincare products you need to pay attention to the list of ingredients and not blindly choose them based on the cost or the color of the packaging. Look for anti aging products that are rich in antioxidants. For example SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum has rich antioxidants content along with the other powerful anti aging ingredients such as peptides. It has been proven that anti aging products like SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum transforms the aging skin dramatically by regenerating skin to achieve its original beauty.

One of the common signs of aging is the appearance of wrinkles. Using anti aging products like SkinMedica at the right time you can prevent the appearance of these wrinkles. It is much easier to prevent wrinkles from appearing as opposed to treating or removing wrinkles after their appearance.

If you take adequate precautions against environment aging you will be able to postpone the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging. Added to that, if you choose your anti aging products carefully you will be able to gain upper hand over the signs of aging though you cannot permanently stop these signs from appearing. SkinMedica TNS serum tightens the skin and boosts the skin’s regeneration abilities which are two important aging defects. Saggy, loose skin is sign of aging and when you get old our skin’s ability to regenerate itself dwindles. SkinMedica helps you in these two areas added to that it protects you from environment aging.

Are You Aging Faster Than You Should?


Reports indicate that women are aging much faster than they should and the first signs of aging are seen on their skin. There are various reasons stated for this premature aging and if you too do not want to age faster than you should then you should take adequate care.


Some of the reasons that are identified as factors that cause premature aging include the following factors. Firstly, our life style has a lot to contribute towards premature aging. Everyone is too busy, we get very little sleep and we are subjected to a lot of stress. These two can have far reaching effects on our body and our general health condition. Dark circles, unhealthy skin, appearance of file lines on the forehead are signs of aging that result from inadequate sleep and excessive stress.


The next important factor is the increasing atmospheric pollution. There is a constant increase in the number of vehicles and the pollution they emit into the air deteriorates the air quality further. Poor eating habit is also one of the major factors of premature aging. When one or more of these factors are present we are prone to premature aging.
