First Look at Paul Rudd in Marvel's ANT-MAN!!!

Shot on location in San Francisco, Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang AKA Ant-Man, in Marvel Studio's Ant-Man, scheduled for release in the U.S. on July 17th, 2015.  


Principal Photography Begins in San Francisco
For July 17, 2015 Release

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s “Ant-Man.” The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed (“Bring it On,” “The Break-Up”) and stars Paul Rudd (“I Love You Man,” “Role Models”) as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.

The film also includes outstanding additional cast including Corey Stoll (“House of Cards,” “The Bourne Legacy”), Bobby Cannavale (“Danny Collins,” “Annie,” “HBO’s “The Long Play”), Michael Peña (“End of Watch,” “American Hustle”), Abby Ryder Fortson (“Togetherness”), Judy Greer (“13 Going on 30,” “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”), David Dastmalchian (“The Dark Knight,” “Prisoners”), Wood Harris (“Remember the Titans,” “The Wire”), John Slattery (“Mad Men,” Marvel’s “Iron Man 2”) and Gregg Turkington (“The Comedy,” “On Cinema”) and multi-hyphenate T.I. (“American Gangster,” “Takers”).

Based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1962, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in Marvel’s “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the upcoming Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Marvel’s “Ant-Man” is produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.  

Director Peyton Reed’s creative team also includes Oscar® winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter (“Titanic,” “21”), production designer Sheppard Frankel (“Identity Thief,” “Horrible Bosses”) costume designer Sammy Sheldon Differ (“X-Men: First Class,” “Kick Ass”), visual effects supervisor Jake Morrison (Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World,” “The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers”), stunt coordinator Jeff Habberstad (Marvel’s “Iron Man 3,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”) and six-time Oscar® nominee, special effects supervisor Dan Sudik (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”).  The editors include Dan Lebental, ACE (Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World,” Marvel’s “Iron Man”) and Colby Parker Jr. (“Lone Survivor,” “Hancock”).

Marvel Studios’ upcoming release schedule includes Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015, Marvel’s “Captain America 3” on May 6, 2016, and Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” on July 28, 2017.  

Guardians of the Galaxy Clip: “Dancing Groot”



GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is now playing in theatres everywhere!

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

The Original Prize Candle Tastemaker Moms Campaign

I love candles. I love to have one lit all day long, so my house will smell delicious all the time. I prefer candles that have a long burn time, so I don't have to change them every day but I want the scent to stay strong the whole time it burns.

My newest candle addiction centers around candles with prizes in them. I love the idea of getting a treat after my candle burns down, and the thrill of having to wait to find out what it is. I will be the first to admit I am not the most patient person, but I try to refrain from digging into my candle so it will last as long as possible. Considering my love for candles and prizes, it is no wonder I was thrilled when I was chosen to review a Prize Candle as part of a Tastemaker Mom campaign.

I was provided with a Jasmine Neroli scented candle to try. This was not a scent I had smelled before, so that was a nice addition to an already great project. The 9 oz soy wax candle is designed to offer 40 wonderfully scented hours of burn time,  not to mention the prize inside. That was a lot of positive promise in one little candle, so I was excited to see how well they actually compared to my expectations.

When I first looked at the candle, I could tell it was a soy candle. The wax has a whole different look and feel to it and they don't have the uniform solidness you find in other types of candles. Personally, I like having a soy based candle because it doesn't take nearly as long for it to begin melting. There is nothing worse then lighting a new candle and having to wait an hour to smell anything.

In my excitement to enjoy this new scent, I forgot to read the directions on the box telling you to trim the wick to 1/4 inch each time you lit the candle again. I had to leave shortly after originally lighting my candle and didn't trim it before the second round, so I ended up with a little soot in my candle. It didn't alter the scent any so I just stored the information away for next time.

I burned my candle for over 20 hours before I was able to gain access to my prize. I refrained from digging it out so I wouldn't damage the candle and waste any yummy burn time. The prize was wrapped nicely and then tucked into a small plastic case to prevent any damage to the ring inside. I used tweezers to remove the casing from the wax and allowed it to dry before opening it to get the ring out.

The ring I received was beautiful. It came out fully intact, and with not even a touch of wax on it. I was not looking forward to having to remove wax from my jewelry, so I was thrilled when it came out clean. It was a beautiful blue colored stone surrounded by smaller white stones and set in silver, but I had no idea what it was worth. I followed the easy steps and visited the site to enter the code provided with my prize. It took only seconds for me to find out my ring was valued at $25. That is certainly not the largest prize value you can find hidden in a Prize Candle, but because it fit, and was pleasing to look at, I couldn't care less what it was worth!

I would love to try one of these candles in every scent available, and to see what other gorgeous prizes may be hidden in them. I have added them to the list I keep of items I would buy as gifts. This is a great way for me to remember them in the future, so I will be able to share the experience with others too.

* I was provided with the mentioned sample item for review purposes. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

Pure Raspberry Ketones Natural Fat Burners

I told you before about my experiences with different diet and weight loss products. Now, I want to tell you about the newest product I tried.

Pure Raspberry Ketones Natural Fat Burners are extracted from natural sources instead of being synthesized in a lab. This means no additives, binders, fillers or artificial ingredients. Made in the USA, these 500mg capsules are quality tested for assurance. They work as an appetite suppressant by burning body fat and converting it into energy which helps to suppress your appetite.

By using natural ingredients and working with your bodies own normal processes, this product avoids the jittery feeling caused by many appetite suppressants on the market. When combined with diet and exercise, these prove to be a productive weight loss supplement. Exercising makes the body burn energy, which in turn burns calories. By taking these pills in combination with exercise, you are converting stored body fat into burnable energy. This means you don't have to eat more to replace the lost energy, and you are suppressing appetite at the same time. It is a combination that works without any negative side effects.

I took these for about two weeks without any other supplements following the directions of one pill twice a day, 30 minutes before meals with a glass of water. I tried to watch my food intake and increase my activity to achieve the best possible results. I am not going to claim a huge decrease in weight or overly dramatic results. What I noticed was a slow but steady dropping of a pound or two at a time. When doing this over the two week period, I had a drop of around 6 pounds and an increase of energy that allowed me to accomplish more with minimal effort.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Skelita Calaveras Monster High Costume Review

My daughter is a huge Monster High fan. She has themed clothing, dolls, posters and everything in between. When I saw the opportunity to review the new Skelita Calaveras costume, I knew it was a perfect fit for her. Skelita is one of the newer Monster High characters and will probably be on a lot of wish lists this year. All I have to do is add shoes and a little makeup and she is ready to get some candy!

The brightly colored, wavy layers of the skirt make this an eye catching costume from the start. The colors are a bit different in the actual costume than they appear on the site. The blue shown above looks aqua on the site and the green is darker than it looks too. I don't think it makes any difference, and my daughter never even noticed. However, if you are buying accessories like bracelets or shoes to match, I would suggest going with a variety of colors or waiting until you have the costume in hand to make sure it is exactly what you had in mind.

The costume comes with the dress, belt, tights and gloves. The tights and gloves feature cool skeleton bones on them and the top has cute glittery stitched patterns with skulls. This fits perfectly with the darkness of the characters, without being too much for a little girl. It has a soft, velvety feel that I love too. This costume is sure to put the Scream Spirit in your Monster High fan!

Wholesale Costume Club offers a large variety of Girls Monster High costumes, so it shouldn't be hard to find one to suit the little girl in your life. They even suggest a nice selection of accessories, treat bags, makeup and safety lights at the bottom of each costume page. This makes it super easy to get the extras you want, without searching all over the site for them.

The sizing of this appears to run a bit small. I ordered a sz medium, which is normally a size 8-10. My daughter wears a size 8, which is usually a little big because she is so petite, but this fit her perfectly. She has room to move and can even layer under it if the weather is too cold. If I were looking for a size 10 though, I would personally order a larger version of this. You can grab this costume for only $21.98 for non members and $19.96 for members. You can also purchase the wig separately.

*I received the costume for review purposes. No other compensation was received, or expected, and all opinions are my own.
