Assassin's Creed II (nintendo DS)

      I bought this game at Target for $29.99. This game is rated "T", it contains violence, and minimal blood. This is a action game that will keep you interested until the end! They make this game for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Nintendo DS. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone under 12, because I don't want 12 year olds walking around town trying to kill someone (haha).

I enjoy this game very much. When you are at the beginning it can be very confusing, but after you get passed the first level it is alot easier to understand. The graphics for this game is great! In the nintendo DS version of this game, it does not show much blood at all. This game keeps you interested until the end. I am not the best person at playing video games, so I definately enjoy the endless lives (haha). They did a great job making the characters in this game. I LOVE this game, I would recommend this game to any of those gamers who loves action and blood!

Covergirl Smokey Shadow Blast!

 I recently received one of these in the mail from my sister. I use the Tempest Blue and I absolutely LOVE IT! You can buy one for $7 at Target. They come in 6 funky colors. I think Covergirl had a great idea when they made this one! I think every teenage girl will fall in love with this product after they try it.

There is a "Step 1" and a "Step 2". Step 1 is eyeshadow (apply it to your eyelid) and Step 2 is eye liner (apply on the crease of the eye lid and around the eye). The two different ends help make that great look you want. The only thing I do not like is the eye liner doesn't stay pointed, the end gets dull the more you use it and it makes a thicker line around your eye. The colors will fit most anyone, and match almost everything! I also like the size, because it is small enough to fit in your purse (just in case you need to re-apply). I have really fell in love with this product. It comes in very handy in the mornings when you are running late and you don't have alot of time to do alot of make-up. You can make it look very simple or you can make it bold. I prefer the simple look. I have not tried all of the colors, but I do intend on trying them all. I will most deffinately reccomend this to all of my girl-friends.

Gigi's Big Break! (DVD)

Gigi's big break is about honesty and loving siblings. It has 2 stories in it (The White Lie and The Pink Suprise). You can find this DVD at Amazon for $14. It also has 5 special features such as a sing along song, a how-to-draw mini feature, and also dvd-rom extras with coloring pages. It is a little over an hour long. The stories are about 30 minutes each.

In the first episode, The White Lie, Gigi gets in trouble by telling a white lie. She learns that when we do wrong and try to cover it up, things usually end up worse, but that God loves us anyway. This story is based on John 1:8-9.

In the second episode, The Pink Suprise, Gigi learns that the world doesn't revolve around her. She has to learn that siblings are a blessing and a lifetime adventure, but that sometimes means that you are not first in everything. Gigi has to learn to love the new bundle of joy that God has given her family. This is based on Luke 10:21.

In this DVD children will learn to be honest and love thier siblings. I think this is a very cute DVD and can relate to a lot of things that young children face (best for kids 3 and up if you ask me). Although this DVD is meant for children, I think everyone can get something out of it. The stories are interesting enough that children will stay interested the whole time.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop!

I bought my laptop about a year ago. The price is anywhere from $650-$800 (depending on if it is on sale). I love my laptop, it fits all my personal needs, but it also good for school projects and papers. I bought mine at BestBuy. Before I bought it, I did alot of research on what laptops would work better with my lifestyle and my use for it (school/personal).

This laptop has a great webcam, which I use my webcam to make funny videos with my friends. The battery lasts about 2-3 hours depending on what you are doing. I love the size of  the screen (15.4"). It is not too big, but it is not too small either. I really like the ease of turning it on and off, I know some laptops I have used take forever to turn on and forever to turn off, this one is alot quicker! One thing I dont like about it is fingerprints seem to love it (if you are a perfectionist that could be a problem). I like the idea of the touch screen buttons at the top, but most of the time I will accidently hit them and turn something on that I dont want turned on right then (haha). The keyboard set up of this laptop is a little different than some, but after you use it for a while I think it is easier to use. It has 3 USB ports, I love that because I can have my iPod charging while I am uploading pictures from my camera.

Overall, I would recommend this laptop to any of my friends.
