In an effort to help you accomplish your New Year’s resolutions we suggest the following approach. Only select 2-3 resolutions and no more than that! Make sure your resolutions are realistic and can be accomplished within a reasonable time period. 39% of those who make New Year’s resolutions forget about it in the first week!
Since weight loss is a popular resolution we propose the following example: You want to lose 50 pounds within the next year. We think waiting one year to finally say “I did it” is too long to wait! We suggest breaking the 50 pounds down into weeks and say “I’m going to lose one pound per week (remember, one pound a week is a healthy way to reduce and will definitely help you keep the weight off in the future). At the end of each week, you can say “I did it” and have the last two weeks of the year to decide on the next New Year’s resolutions. We find this approach will keep you motivated and enthusiastic about your weight loss resolution. A word of caution about losing weight; always eat healthy and get plenty of exercise. Remember that fad diets do not work!
Argan Oil contains a high concentration of Vitamin E and Carotenes (Vitamin A) which are two vital components that make up healthy skin. Its vitamin rich content can produce instantly noticeable effects when applied topically to the skin. Argan Oil is typically found in high-end cosmetic products like moisturizers, shampoos (for dry, damaged or brittle hair) and sunscreens.
The texture is light and less greasy but still moisturizing so even if you have oily skin, it’s great to use. In fact, it contains antibacterial plant sterols that help curb acne.
Argan Oil is derived from the Argan tree only found in Morocco. The oil is obtained by pressing the tiny seeds from the Argan fruit (nut). Its gets its ‘liquid gold’ name because it has the appearance of a golden liquid at room temperature!
When buying Argan Oil, make sure it is 100% pure with no extra preservatives. We really like the Shea Terra 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil for $24.00.
‘Sides’ are pages from a movie or TV script that have been excerpted for the purpose of auditions. The TV and film prescreens usually involve a cold reading from “sides”. If the “sides’ are given to you cold, ask for a few minutes to analyze the script before you read for the casting director.
The Hollywood Sign is the most famous sign in the world and is one of the most photographed icons in the world. The Sign has appeared in countless motion pictures and television productions as well as in photos taken by millions of tourists and residents. It stretches four stories high and 450 feet long across the top of Mt. Lee in the Hollywood Hills. The original sign, erected in 1923, had 4,000 studded light bulbs and was only expected to last only 18 months. Now, 89 years later and after several refurbishing acts, the sign continues to reign as the symbol of Hollywood!

“Walla” is a strangely named job for actors who provide background noises in movies and TV shows. Imagine a scene where two actors are sitting down and talking with each other. The background extras are instructed to walk around silently so the two actor’s dialogue can be heard and recorded on a clean track. Once the scene is ready for editing, it is projected on a screen in a specially designed recording studio so the background voices can be added. The “Walla” actors watch the screen and record voices for those extras moving around in the scene. Movie magic!
