1 box of family size Chocolate Fudge brownie mix

1 (14 oz.) bag coconut
1/4 C milk
1 C chocolate chips, melted
1/4 C almonds (or nuts), crushed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line (regular size, not mini) cupcake pan with paper liners. (Don’t skip the paper liners as they make stick).
Make brownies according to package directions and pour batter only half way up the liners.
Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. While they are baking, mix the coconut, sweetened condensed milk and milk together.
Remove brownies from oven and spoon on some sweetened coconut.
Place bake in oven and continue to bake an additional 14-16 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before removing the paper liners. Drizzle on the chocolate then sprinkle on the almonds.
My most favourite beauty product to shop for is without a doubt perfume. I LOVE the perfume section in stores. I am all about the smell of things. As well, nothing makes me feel more beautiful and confident as a woman then a really nice fragrance….and smelling nice obviously. And when it comes to men….it’s what attracts me to them the most…..the way they smell.
Today, me and my mom visited our local Shoppers Drug Mart and of course, the first section we stepped into was my most favourite section and the best smelling section in all the store….the fragrance isle.
Some people can’t take the smell of all the perfumes….especially when they’re giving of their scents all at once. But for me, it’s like Heaven on Earth. I could stay in that area all day if I could. And if I could afford it, I would probably of bought all the fragrances that caught my attention….which was A LOT!!
The one that really caught my attention was the new one by Lise Watier, a Canadian selective cosmetic brand launched in 1972, called “Something Sweet”. And to me, it was just that…..something sweet. It’s a very nice perfume that is not too strong but not weak either. I have also been checking out the other products by Lise Watier and you can too at the brand’s official website :)

This Saturday gone, I went and saw Oz the Great and Powerful with some friends. It stars James Franco as Oscar Diggs a.k.a Oz; Michelle Williams as Glenda; Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis as sisters Evanora and Theodora.
I have to admit….I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it but I got to say, I thought it was really good. We saw it in 3D and the 3D effects were done really well. In fact, it was done so well, that I became nauseous during a couple of scenes. I do feel this is one of those films that should have those warnings about the fact it may cause motion sickness….or worst.
As for the cast : James Franco was charming as always. I really liked Michelle Williams in this film. She played the part of the sweet, spirited Good Witch very well as did Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis as the two Wicked Witches. Mila certainly had the ear-piercing-shriek of a laughter down pat and Rachel was amazing as always. They all made a very talented and beautiful cast.
We can’t forget Finley, the very cuddly looking winged monkey voiced by Zach Braff; and China Girl, the young, adorable and very alive china doll from China Town voiced by Joey King; whom both of them joins Oz on his journey to the Dark Forest in search for the “Wicked Witch”. Of course, all the other actors in this film should not be forgotten for they all played an important role in the film.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, as I said at the very beginning of the post, I recommend it. It’s a good family film with beautiful graphics and a great cast who play some very lovable characters.
