Local Review: Maitland Farmer’s Market

The Maitland Farmer’s Market at Lake Lily off of 17-92 isn’t really the biggest or the flashiest of farmer’s markets. It’s a little on the smaller side, with vendor booths boasting fresh, locally grown produce and independently made odds and ends ranging from honey to puppy treats along a narrow sidewalk circling  half of Lake Lily … Continue reading

Film Review: Much Ado About Nothing (2013)

I’m going to preface this by saying that I have no idea why Joss Whedon hasn’t always done Shakespeare. For those unfamiliar with the basic plot, Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy about two separate relationships and the people involved with both.

Product Review: Brazilian Tech Keratin Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner

I’ve been bleaching and dyeing my hair for almost ten years now, and I can’t even tell you the number of times someone has told me that I’d better be careful or else “all my hair will fall out.” Luckily, that has never happened (fingers crossed that it never does!), but I have dealt with … Continue reading
