Giveaway: Win Rise of the Guardians Movie Passes!

To help you get into the true holiday spirit, Everything She Wants is offering four lucky New York City residents or visitors  the chance to win complimentary movie passes to see DreamWorks' Rise of the Guardians ( passes are good for you and a guest, and are valid at any Manhattan Regal Cinema ). About the film: With an all-star cast including Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Chris Pine, Rise of the Guardians is an epic adventure that tells the story of a group of heroes – each with extraordinary abilities. In a culture that places tremendous value on the popular holiday legends of Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, Rise of the Guardians provides a glimpse behind the veil and into the deeper meaning of these magical heroes. Though lighthearted and exciting, the film also concerns the serious subjects of prayer, purity, guardian angels and spiritual warfare, which ultimately gets to the true meaning of life itself. Thus, the film provides an experience

Natural Hair Growth Products That Work

Everything She Wants  is on a mission to find the best natural hair care products that promote hair growth and thickening.  On this quest, we’ve tried effective moisturizing shampoos, conditioners and oils from  SheaMoisture ,  Nubian Heritage  and  Kinky Curly .  But one popular product we can’t recommend is  Virgin Hair Fertilizer . Although some women swear by the petroleum-based cream with herbal extracts and a strong minty smell, from our experience, the product’s tingling sensation didn’t signal hair growth.  Instead, it produced further scalp irritation.  One product we firmly endorse, however, is  Badger’s Argan Botanical Hair Oil For Dry & Damaged Hair ,  which   Everything She Wants  was gifted at a  Whole Body|Whole Foods Market  press event. We’ve used it for a couple weeks and have already noticed fuller hair forming in thinning spots around the temples and in the crown. Here's how the excellent, certified organic oil infused with Argan, J

Women’s Watch Trends for Fall and Holiday 2012

We’re on a mission to find the perfect everday watch, and shopping online is an easier way to narrow the field.  So far, we like the selection on Van Mildert *, an award-winning premium fashion retailer in the U.K. that sells designer clothing, shoes and accessories.  And unlike many e-commerce stores from across the pond, Van Mildert conveniently converts its prices to U.S. dollars so you’ll know exactly how much you’re spending. From two tone watches to rubber watches with crystal embellishments, Van Mildert has a nicely curated selection.  We know we’re in the minority on this, but we’re not a fan of watches with fake or genuine bling.  Instead, we like timeless time pieces and currently Michael Kors’ eye-catching Women’s Tortoise Jet Set Watch  ( above photo ) is at the top of our holiday wish list. We also love Kors’ classic Mid-Size Chronograph Rose Gold Watch and his modern Women’s Two Tone White & Gold Silicone Watch.   To match the new Michael Kors watc
