Marvel Fans: Time to Geek Out!

Spider-man will be joining the Avengers!

According this article at EW.com, the Spider-man character is now no longer under the power of Sony Pictures, and can now come back to it’s original Marvel home. This means Spidey can be a part of the next Avengers installment…and even show up and make an appearance as early as Captain America: Civil War. (Comic book fans already know Spidey is an important part of the Avengers plot line)

See? He already fits in so well! :)

The article does state that a new series of Spidey movies intertwined into the Avengers story is in the works too, so much so that it will push back original release dates for Thor 3 and the new Black Panther and Captain Marvel films.

I’m super excited about this! True, it feels like Peter Parker’s story has been overdone the past several years, but I’m interested to see how the character is intertwined in the Avengers saga. I’m no comic book geek, but I’ve been obsessed with the Avengers story lately (Agent Carter anyone? So good!) that I can’t get enough.

So the main question…who should play the new Spider-man?!? Go old school with Toby McGuire? Keep Andrew Garfield? Keep the “hot Chris” theme going and hire Chris Pine? (eonline read my mind…)

Love to hear your ideas…share please!

Frozen Fever!

Disney recently released stills from the upcoming “Frozen Fever” 7 minute short that will open for Disney’s live-action Cinderella…and I’m super excited!

 

According to USA today- the plot is that it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa is throwing her a birthday party…she wants everything to be perfect, because this is the first birthday that they’ve shared together (insert tears and awww! here!). Unfortunately, Elsa gets a cold…and it creates some havoc in the party planning and prepping.

 

Below are the 5 stills…and here are my thoughts on each!

 

Still 1: Elsa gets a new dress!!!

WAHOO!! Finally a wardrobe change for Elsa! Don’t get me wrong, she rocks that Ice blue like no one’s business, but she can at least switch it up every once in a while. LOVE the green she’s wearing too! (Yes, Anna is wearing some new threads too…but there’s five versions of that dress in her closet already).

 

Still 2: Anna still loves sleeping and can’t control that bed-head

Who doesn’t? and who can?

 

Still 3: It’s an outdoor sunflower themed party! 

True, nothing super special, but the 8 year old in me that was obsessed with sunflowers growing up is loving it. :)

 

Still 4: Olaf is back! 

We will see Kristoff and Sven too in the short.

 

Still 5: The Arendale Royal Family appreciates internet humor

This was apparently inspired by the “Awkward Family Photos” blog. Love it!

Showering too much?

So the past couple days I’ve seen articles talking about if we shower too much as an American society…

 

 

Not gonna lie- I didn’t like the idea of someone telling me that I shower too much. I like being clean ok? :) Especially after a good sweaty workout! Plus that shower in the morning is the #1 way I wake up…with coffee or tea coming in at a close #2.

 

Most importantly…body odor stinks.

 

 

So I did some light research, and I’m glad that the Today show cleared up some of the initial statements about showering. You can check out the full article HERE, but here are some helpful tips help your skin out but not have to completely alter your bathroom routine.

 

 

 It’s not so much how often you bathe, but HOW you bathe that matters! We tend to do clean EVERYTHING every time we jump in the shower, but dermatologists recommend revising your shower “to-do” list. We’ve already heard that you aren’t supposed to wash your hair every time your in the shower (especially long hair), same goes for your body. Save the “whole body sudsing” for every other day (or every couple days even)  and  daily focus on the areas of your body that need it. Ex. places that stink first, like armpits and feet, and also areas that a bathing suit would cover.

 

Your skin knows what it’s doing. It naturally produces oil that not only helps keep your skin hydrated, but contains good bacteria to keep away infection. So over-washing can actually make your skin more prone to letting those infections into your body…ew.

 

 Time and Temp Dermatologists say that if you keep the shower short and use lukewarm water instead of hot water that helps your skin from drying out…especially in these cold winter months.

 

Are bath’s your thing? Soak and Smear! If a soak is more your style, make sure you keep the time down to 10 or 15 minutes, and then as soon as you are out apply lotion/moisturizer.

 

Remember little angels and senior saints don’t need to shower as often. Your child’s skin is more delicate and elderly skin is naturally drier.

 

Hopefully these little tips and tricks can help revamp your routine and you won’t have dry winter skin as bad this year!
