COLORS Magazine

COLORS MagazineIf you are tired of reading the same cheap quality magazines that don’t ever really seem to say much, then we think we have a solution for you. COLORS Magazine is a magazine that is a bit out of the ordinary in the fact that they feature only high quality content and even their magazine paper feels like it is a much heavier and substantial stock than what other magazines use. For example, if you pick up an Entertainment Weekly, the paper quality is going to be the same slippery smooth and thin product that all of the other magazines use. Now, we don’t have a problem with Entertainment Weekly, but you can’t deny that quality is lacking in their finished printed product.

Each COLORS Magazine has a particular theme that is emphasized and discussed throughout the entirety of the magazine. This makes for a nice coherent edition each and every time! For example, one of their issues is on Happiness, a concept that is very interesting to talk about, and the entire issue delves deeply into what it is that makes a person truly happy. The articles and content in these magazines is well worth reading, not like the bland and uninformative columns in most.

On top of the fascinating content and high quality of this magazine, there are a few additional things to note. The cover designs are spectacular and artistic, it shows that a lot of thought went into each and every one. Lastly, it is available on the iPad as well as in print, so for those of you that are too impatient to wait for the print issues, look into getting the digital version on your iPad.

Fatima, Thoughts on Poetry

19-year old Fatima is your average girl with a twist; she loves to express herself through passionate words. Yes, that’s correct Fatima uses poetry as a way of expressing herself, she began writing her poems somewhere between being 12 and 14, and has been writing ever since.

Why poetry you may ask? When asked what motivates her to write, she responded “I personally believe poetry is a wonderful way to transmit all those feelings that some people do not allow to show up often, but that doesn’t mean they all have to be pure sadness or frustration, some are made out of the deepest emotions, that ones that warm up your heart, that make you smile… In my case, being able to express just the way I really want, is enough motivation.”

Writing according to her is about self-expression, her favorite thing about writing is “About writing… probably that it shows so much of who you really are and the thousands of topics you can actually get to talk about, adaptable to everything and everyone. Also, to be able to paint your own world in the confines of your mind and to be able to show clearly what your intentions are, capturing a moment with the exact combination of thought and feel on paper, it’s priceless.”

She says that writing has helped her grow as a person by helping her communicate with both herself, and other people better, “…it has helped me to communicate better with people around me and with myself at some point, because, I realize things while reading or writing quite frequently.” Where does writing stand in her future? Well, she hopes to continue to use writing “as my runaway to freedom still, or probably, to dedicating it way more time, as a vital part of my life, for sure.”

Fatima had a few words to those of you who are interested in writing, she said “I would definitely tell them to try it out; after all, it’s a wonderful way to think about things, usually, writing as words come to your mind is amazing; it really fuels the way ideas flow and the effect it has on them. Writing is just something that each person feels different but that everyone I know has loved equally.”

Her last words during the interview were a simple thank you to those who read her work. “Finally, but not less important, of course, to those people who actually take the time to read my pieces, I would like to give them a huge Thank you, for all their support and for all their love along with all the inspiration they give me. Follow your dreams they might lead you somewhere someday.”

Fred 2: Night Of The Living Fred

Looking for a good movie to watch this Halloween season? Well, look no further. There are two groups of viewers out there, and there simply is no in between. The first group loves Fred and the second doesn’t care for his sense of humor. I fit into the first group, or at least I do for the Fred movies. I feel like there should be more movies like this, not in the aspect of how it is written or the storyboard, but more so relating to the style in which it is shot. It is very down to Earth and you get the feeling that this isn’t a very professional movie, it’s relatable! Before we go any further though, let me answer a few questions that you may have bouncing around in your Halloween excited head!

First, let me tell you that the part of Bertha is no longer played by Jennette McCurdy from the show iCarly. They have recase the part of Bertha for some unknown reason, but I don’t enjoy it when they switch out the roles of main characters. Second, the story is still very much like the first and you will notice elements that resemble the first Fred movie very closely. He still visits a shop where comedic humor is exchanged between him and the shop owners, Derf will appear for a moment in the movie just as he did in the first, and for those of you who don’t know, Derf is Freds imaginary opposite in regards to personality, and one last thing that you may want to know about is that this movie makes Fred seem more “unstable” than the first. While the wild imagination is a very important aspect to Fred, this movie takes it almost too far.

Overall, the movie is very entertaining and is definitely something that you will want to watch this Halloween season. It still has the same familiar humor of Fred that we have grown to love, a comical storyboard, and of course the wildly imaginative character of Fred. We recommend this movie as a good watch for this holiday season!

Do Fullbars Really Work?

So we have all herd of the “Fullbar” that is supposed to keep you from overeating. The question is, “Does it really work?” I decided to test the Fullbar out to see if it truly lives up to what it says it does. Upon opening the wrapper before eating the Fullbar I noticed that it is pretty much puffy cereal all stuck together with soy or wheat or something that can hold it in the bar format. One has to ask how it is any different from a breakfast bar, am I right? I decided to give it a chance anyway, after all it could be the best weight loss solution ever made. I ate the bar and drank more water than required, just to make sure that the effects would be applied. The idea is that the water makes the cereal like puffs blow up and get bigger while in your stomach, therefore filling more space and making you less hungry.

I went to dinner the first day, after waiting thirty minutes after consuming a fullbar of course, and found that I ate pretty much the same amount as always. The next day I did the same, only I did eat about one plate less. Keep in mind a plate for me consist of a few spoonfuls of rice and a breadstick or something to that effect. Ok, so one plate less isn’t too bad, but I would have to buy box after box of these things in order to lose weight, right? Pretty much, over time you can lose weight with the full bar, but personally I think you would be able to get similar results with a bag of dry cereal and a lot of bottled water. It may have just been my experience with the Fullbar that was disappointing, but I think the price for no more than you get isn’t worth it.
