Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions - Now Out on Blu-ray!

Star Wars is a favourite with my family and I was excited when Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Lost Missions was released on Blu-ray. Clone Wars is several seasons in, episodes take place between Episode II and Episode III. I'm a fan of the original trilogy, but the Star Wars expanded universe is huge and it's always fun to read or watch things spin-offs. I was delighted to review The Clone Wars - The Lost Missions. There are 13 episodes with nearly two hours of bonus features including a documentary celebrating the entire "Clone Wars" series, and four additional unfinished story reels. With tons of sci-fi action, drama and humour, Star Wars: Clone Wars might make the perfect stocking stuffer for the Star Wars fan this Christmas!

Sawmill Creek Wine - Life is Simpler Here (BzzAgent Review)

The perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day is to sip on a glass of wine. I was invited by BzzAgent to join the Sawmill Creek campaign, so I picked up a bottle of dry white. There were many different types of Sawmill Creek wines to choose from, in 750mL and 1.5L bottles.

I decided to go with a dry white wine to sip on and to use for cooking.

The wine was easy to drink and was smooth tasting, with nice fruity green apple notes. It was a well balanced wine that was perfect for cooking and paired great with this chicken dish that used a white wine cream sauce.

The meal suggestions on the back of the bottle include: serving as an apertif, with poultry, seafood, pork and mild cheeses. 

If you are in need of a re-aquaintance with the art of unwinding, here are a few simple ways to start:
  • Take 10 minutes at the end of the day to reflect on the day's accomplishments (big or small) and treat yourself to a glass of Sawmill Creek.
  • At the end of the week, challenge yourself to carve out the time and space to unwind. Pour yourself a hot bath, let yourself sink in and enjoy a glass of Sawmill Creek.
  • Invite your friends over and enjoy Simple Sipping as you create a bucket list. Then commit each of your friends to crossing one off by the end of the year. Big or small - they all count.
  • Savour a moment of gratitude and share it. Enjoy some Simple Sipping while you send a simple, unexpected note of gratitude to 5 people.

Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 Collection - BzzAgent Review

Pantene has come out with a new Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 with BB Creme collection and I received a set to try out from BzzAgent. The set came with shampoo, conditioner and a beauty balm for hair. I use Pantene shampoo regularly, so I was excited to try this new line from them.

The BB Creme line is advertised to help with flawlessy healthy looking hair with:

1. Repair for rough hair
2. Strength against damage
3. Silky softeness
4. Brilliant shine
5. Smoothing
6. Moisture
7. Frizz control
8. Gentle cleaning
9. Manageability
10. Detangling

I have been using the Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 line for the past few nights, and my hair couldn't been more smooth and silky! The shampoo smells wonderful and only a small dollop is needed to get it lathered up into my hair and the same with the conditioner. I have yet to try the beauty balm, but it should help you with any tangles you get.

I'm definitely a fan of this new Pantene line! Let me know what you think if you've tried it!

Based on the novel by Richard C. Morais, The Hundred-Foot Journey follows a Mumbai family that moves to France, where they open up an Indian restaurant headed by Papa (Puri), right across the street from a Michelin star restaurant owned by Madame Mallory (Mirren). She is proud of her classic French cuisine and despises the intrusion of the Indian family. After an act of violence on the Indian family that leaves Papa's son and aspiring cook, Hassan (Manish Dayal), injured, Madame Mallory opens the doors to her restaurant to him and hires him to work at her restaurant and learn everything about French cuisine.

The Hundred-Foot Journey was a very enjoyable film, with hilarious quips and complaints between the rival restauranteurs.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy In Theatres Today!

Guardians of the Galaxy, one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer, comes out in theatres today. A rag-tag group of unconventional heroes, and not quite mainstream in the Marvel world, Guardians is definitely a fun movie to watch.

Taking place in a faraway galaxy, a human, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is a junkman who is after an orb for his boss, only to find out a ton of other folks are after it too. Gamora (Zoe Saldana), a trained weapon, is sent by villain Ronan (Lee Pace) to retrive the orb. Rocket, a genetically altered racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and his friend Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), a walking tree, are bounty hunters who come along for a cut in the price that the orb would fetch. Rounding out the crew is Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) who the other meet in a Kyln prison. These five misfits form an unlikely team that must defeat Ronan and save the galaxy.

Guardians paint a pretty impressive CGI world and the action sequences are fast-paced. There are plenty of witty one-liners and off beat jokes that will have you laughing throughout the movie. Sprinkled with great tracks from the 70's (I Want You Back - Jackson 5, Hooked on a Feeling - Blue Swede), Guardians of the Galaxy definitely promises a fun ride for everyone. Guardians of the Galaxy is out in theatres today.

3D Printers at Tinkerine Studios - Grand Opening

Tinkerine Studios Canada's leading 3D printing company that develops and manufactures 3D printer to consumers. They had a grand opening of their offices on the weekend so I decided to check it out to see what the hype of 3D printing was about. 3D printing had advanced quite quickly over the years and Tinkerine is the first company to provide affordable printers for the average consumer. Tinkerine CEO, Eugene Suyu was first introduced to 3D printers while at SFU and it inspired him to design his own. The newest model, the DittoPro prints at a resolution of 50 to 300 microns and uses biodegradable plastic.

A smaller version of Ditto, the Litto.
The DittoPro prints quietly and you can change the colour of what you are printing by swapping out the spool of plastic that is mounted behind the printer. It was impressive to see what you can create using the 3D printers, from household items and trinkets to toys and complex models.

The DittoPro retails at $1,999 CAD and comes fully assembled. Find out more about Tinkerine Studios here.
