Snappy Socks Holiday 6 Pack Review

It seems like I am constantly searching the house for missing socks? We all are always losing socks and I really have no idea where they disappear off to. A few months ago I did a review on Snappy Socks which is offered by USA Dawgs. I was sent a pair for a little girl and they were super cute and worked very well. I now have been given the chance to do a review on Snappy Socks for me.

Snappy Socks offers style and ease with an innovative line of snap-to-fasten socks for children and yes even adults. The Snappy Socks are solving the age-old missing sock mystery. Snappy Socks is offering comfort in a number of designs including: cupcakes to race-cars, black boards with alphabets and apples, to camouflage, and more. You can easily fasten together the socks while being washed, thrown in a drawer for storage and everywhere in between.

The Two Tools you NEED for 2013!

Bold, striking brows and flirty lashes bring all of the attention to your eyes. If you’re anything like me, your makeup bag is over-flowing with make-up goodies. After discovering the results that a quality eyelash curler like Sally Hansen’s Sexy Curls Precision Eyelash Curler brings when paired with the TouchBack BrowMarker, my makeup intake has been cut in half! Clean out your makeup bag and start fresh for 2013.

The Sally Hansen Sexy Curls Precision Eyelash Curler delivers a dramatic, eye-opening curl that works for every eye shape and lash length. Apply a bit of mascara and your lashes are good to go! The curler is engineered to not touch the face and offers easier handling and crimping comfort with the steady spring-loaded grip.

Add extra definition and drama by filling in your brows with the TouchBack BrowMarker. Developed with a unique, fine tip marker that evenly deposits just the right amount of intense color, the BrowMarker is the fuss-free way to achieve mistake-proof results. The smudge-proof, budge-proof formula lasts all day by bonding to brows and skin, filling in any sparseness and enhancing brows’ shape and color.

 “To define your brows, just use short, quick, upward strokes, following the direction of hair growth,” explains TouchBack Creative Consultant, Kristina Barricelli. “Continue to fill in until your brows are as bold as you’d like.”

NYE Hair Tips from Harry Josh

Happy Holidays! We are rapidly moving towards New Year’s Eve, which means it’s time to start planning our scene-stealing, glam party looks.  Below are a few hair styling tips and tricks from Harry Josh, John Frieda International Creative Consultant, which are sure to help you dazzle while waiting for the clock to strike 12 and for 2013 to be ushered in.


CHIC CHIGNON

1) Apply gel (I like the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style‑Holding Gel) to the root of damp hair to help achieve a sleek, flat shape.

2) Using a tail comb (rather than a round brush), blow out hair, combing it flat against the head.

3) Create an extreme, slick, side part, and pull hair back into a bun.


SLEEK HIGH PONY

1) Use a light styling crème, such as Frizz-Ease Straight Fixation, and apply to the roots of damp hair.

2) Blow dry hair and follow with a flat iron to straighten.

3) Brush hair back into a high pony.

4) Secure hair with an elastic.

5) To disguise the elastic, either tie a pretty ribbon around the pony or pull a piece of hair out of the pony, wrap it around the elastic and secure it underneath the pony with a bobby pin.

6) Spritz with hairspray to finish (I like Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray).

*Additional Tip: Rather than using a styling crème, apply John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight to damp hair. This heat-activated, semi-permanent styling spray will block out frizz and enhance straightening results.


Messy fishtail side braid

1) Begin by gathering all of the hair to one side of the head, then divide it into two equal parts.

2) Take a small piece of hair (around ½ inch wide) from the first section and add it into the second section.

3) Continue by taking the same size piece as before from the second section and adding it to the first section.

4) Repeat this step three to four times before pulling the two sides tight to reveal a fishtail pattern.

5) Continue swapping pieces between sections until you no longer have enough hair to continue weaving back and forth.

6) Secure the ends with a small elastic.

7) Once tight, begin loosening the braid softly with your fingers to give it more of a sexy, undone texture.  This ensures the braid won’t look too over-styled.

8) Finish by spritzing with hair spray to hold, such as the Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.


HALF-BACK

1) Apply volumizing spray at the crown and blast with a blow dryer to create lift.  I recommend Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion.

2) Sweep the front of hair back, and secure with pins at the crown.

3) Curl sections with a 1 ¼ inch iron, and run fingers through to loosen the curl almost completely.

4) Pull pieces out in the front to frame the face.

5) Finish with a shine spray, like Frizz-Ease 100% Shine.

Getting Into Your Gym Grind

Below are some tips for staying beautiful at the gym since New Year resolution time is just around the corner! Whether you are going for long runs, attending yoga class or starting up an intense spin class, these tips will keep you looking your best.


The other day, Edward Tricomi, of Warren-Tricomi Salons shared a really fun tip for maintaining your blowout after a workout. Simply cut up a pair of black, opaque stockings and turn them into a make-shift headband and then use the remaining pieces to tie my hair into a ponytail. It is genius since the material doesn’t leave indentation marks and absorbs perspiration at the hairline. Just an example of some of the tips he has up his sleeve!

If you are getting into a daily gym grind and are washing your hair daily, “You need to be using a color protecting shampoo and conditioner to maintain you color or highlights. Between the daily washes and sun exposure from being outdoors more, your hair will look washed out quickly without the proper hair care system.” – Joel Warren of Warren-Tricomi Salons
 
To help keep your colored hair from fading, you can use the TouchBack Plus System which deposits a bit of color back into my hair and delivers high shine. Lumene’s Sensitive Touch Gentle Cleansing Wipes are always in my gym bag. You can use one wipe before you work out to remove make-up and one post-work out to cool down and clean-up.

Where to purchase
TouchBack Plus Shampoo & Conditioner $29.95 each at Ulta stores and Ulta.com
Lumene Sensitive Touch Cleansing Wipes $6.99 at CVS stores and CVS.com

Synch Bands Review

My family loves to wear chucks, in fact we all have a pair. Chucks (sneakers) are comfortable, simple and can go with just about anything you wear. The only thing my kids and I dislike is how we have to take the time to tie the laces when we are in a rush. Tying shoes can be one setback that, combined with other small setbacks, can turn into a big problem. Synch bands remove tying laces from the equation of getting dressed. You might be asking, what are Synch Bands? They are laces designed to work without tying them into a knot. They can be used in any shoes that require laces.

Synch Bands are made with a specially designed elastic material, Synch Bands are a different take on shoelaces which allow you to convert any pair of shoes into safe, secure slip-ons. Customize your shoes using multiple Synch Band colors or create your own unique patterns. No matter how you use your Synch Bands, you will never have to worry about tying your laces again. Synch Bands are perfect for all ages, boys and girls.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days DVD Review

Everybody’s favorite wimp, Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon), is back for three times the fun in the latest film based on the super-popular book series! When Greg’s dad (Steve Zahn) threatens to send him to military school if he doesn’t stay out of trouble, Greg finds all-new ways to land himself in the doghouse! For starters, Greg’s in over his head when he pretends to work at the swanky country club where Rowley’s family has a membership. Things don’t go much better on a father-son camping trip with the Wilderness Explorers, and then there’s the Heffley’s new dog, Sweetie, who fetches even more trouble for Greg in this hilarious family film! 

As soon as this movie arrived at the house, my 8 year old daughter was excited. She has seen all of the movies in the past. I had never seen any of the movies until now. I do however have to admit this movie was pretty funny and truly I wasn't exspecting it. In fact this is one of those movies I get for my kids and I never even watch. But, since both of my kids were wanting to watch on the big tv I thought why not. 

This movie had so many funny parts that I caught myself cracking up several times. For my kids to laugh and enjoy the movie was really nice with it not being an enimated movie.

I know that with the other two movies the kids are in school but this one is more home based with it being summer. I really like how the dad wants Greg to spend more time outside and all he wants to do is play video games. As a parent I can really relate to this battle in the summer time. Greg ends up getting a job just to get his dad off of his back.

By the end you have laughed super hard, and had such a good time watching the movie together. I do like that by the end of the movie there has been some valuable lessons leared. Some being honesty and acceptance. I would highly recommend watching this movie with your kids. Trust me you will have a fun time laughing together.

Where to purchase: You are able to purchase Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days [Blu-ray] from Amazon and local retailers for $21.99.

Glee Gum Chewing Gum Kit Review/Giveaway

Every time we are in the checkout at a store it seems like my family is always picking up gum. It is just one of those things that taste really good and can hold you over until you eat. So, doing a review on the Chewing Gum Kit that is offered by Glee Gum, seemed like a fun family night activity to do together. Plus, we already love gum.

Glee Gum is natural, gluten-free chewing gum with no artificial coloring, flavoring, sweeteners, or preservatives. Glee Gum is the only gum in North America made the old fashioned way, with chicle! Chicle is a tree sap harvested sustainably from the rainforests of Central America. Once all chewing gum was made with chicle, but today most gum is made entirely from synthetic stuff. Not Glee! Glee Gum uses chicle because it is an eco-friendly way to help conserve the rainforest, giving the trees more value standing than chopped down for lumber. Glee is a “green” gum right down to the packaging, which is made from biodegradable, recycled cardboard. Certified vegetarian, Glee comes in yummy flavors like Bubblegum and Triple Berry, plus sugar-free Lemon-Lime and Refresh-Mint!

Lumene Sensitive Touch Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster Review

With winter here it is very important to keep my skin hydrated. I would love to share with you a product that I have had the privilege to test, Lumene Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster! This product has come at the best time with winter in full swing I was in need of hydrating very badly.

Infused with mineral-rich, pure Arctic spring water, this gel formula also contains natural hyaluronic acid to instantly improve skin’s hydration by up to 65%. A multi-tasking product, it helps even out fine lines and also works as a primer by smoothing skin’s surface.

This product I would have to say is my must have product for this winter season. When I apply the Lumene Sensitive Touch Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster on my skin I can immediately feel it work. It honestly feels as if you are adding water to your face. As soon as I rubbed the Lumene Sensitive Touch Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster into my skin I could feel the smoothness. 

I literally carry this tub around with me everywhere. Where ever I go this little tube is with me for when ever I may need it. My skin stays pretty dried out during the winter months from the cold weather and then next thing you know my skin is chapped. The Lumene Sensitive Touch Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster has truly helped with this and I couldn't imagine not having this during the cold months. 

Where to purchase: You are able to make a purchase from the Lumene website along with CVS.com, other online retailers and also in stores at CVS.

Bellabe Facial Hair Remover Review/Giveaway '2 Winners'

Have you ever heard of facial hair threading? Until my opportunity to do a review on Bellabe I had never heard of it or had it done. I am sure you are wondering what is facial hair threading yourself. Threading is an ancient form of hair removal that continues to be practiced by many in the Eastern part of the world. Unwanted hair is removed from the roots with the use of a cotton thread by trained practitioners. Today, threading hair removal is the hottest method of facial hair removal and continues to grow in popularity in the U.S. and worldwide. The origins of threading is not clear, with some claiming it began in India, the Middle East or China. However, threading can cut the skin, even if done by experienced threading practitioners.

The holiday season is full of cheer – but unfortunately it can often bring unwanted stress! AVEENO experts, Celebrity Hairstylist, Patrick Melville and dermatologist, Dr. Debra Jaliman, share tips, tricks and advice to get you through the holiday season in stride.

Patrick MelvillePatrick Melville’s quick how-to for achieving polished party hair (low chignon):
1. Blow-dry hair with Mason Pearson Brush or round brush, when hair is dry, spray hair with the AVEENO Dry Shampoo at the root to create texture
2. Take a small tail comb and tease very gently at the root throughout the head, flip hair upside down and break up hair with your finger
3. Grab hair at the nape and secure with hair tie, this should create a little texture and softness around your face
4. With the tailcomb, gently tease the ponytail to create more texture, spin ponytail around to create a chignon at nape of neck and secure with a straight pin or bobby pin
5. Break up with fingers on the bottom, use a lightweight hairspray to secure in place, finish with a sparkly headband or clip
Dr. Debra Jaliman’s go-to skincare secrets for skin glowing throughout the holidays:
1. After a night out, it's easy to go to sleep without wanting to stop and wash your face. Dr. Jaliman suggests the AVEENO Ultra -Calming Makeup Removing Wipes to make it easy to clean your face post-party. Keep them by your bedside for quick, mild yet effective cleansing
2. This time of year can be so stressful with holiday shopping and family commitments, what better way to  relieve the stress then with a bath?

Single Dads in Films

Beasts of the Southern Wild
Came to Blu-ray & DVD December 4, 2012

Teeming with magic, beauty and pure joy, this crowd-pleasing winner at the Sundance Film Festival has emerged as one of the year’s most acclaimed films. Newcomer Quvenzhané Wallis delivers an “Oscar®-worthy performance” (Philadelphia Daily News) as Hushpuppy, the six-year-old force of nature in an isolated bayou community being raised by her tough but loving father Wink (Dwight Henry).

Cinematic Single Dads
While some film fathers differ, Wink, who is raising his daughter amidst a giant flood, deals out tough love and hard lessons.  But he still has one thing in common with all of the great movie pops named below, he loves his daughter. Take a look at some of movie history’s best-loved single dads.


Chris Gardner in The Pursuit of Happyness
What is the most amazing thing about this story, about struggling salesman Chris Gardner who loses his job, his wife and all of his assets and becomes determined to find a job to support him and his son, Christopher? It’s based on a true story. 


Marlin, Finding Nemo
Widower Marlin, a clownfish, is unwaveringly devoted to his son, Nemo. So when Nemo gets scooped up from the ocean by a scuba diver and dropped off in dentist’s aquarium in Australia, Marlin will stop at nothing to get him back. 


Daniel, Love, Actually
Among this collection of Christmastime love stories, who knew the most touching would be between Daniel, a widower, and his stepson, Sam? When Sam confesses his deep feeling for classmate Joanna, Daniel makes sure Sam has an opportunity to confess his feelings, before Joanna is off to America forever. 


Graham Simpkins, The Holiday
This dashing Brit, a widowed father of two little girls, has built his life around his daughters. He is always thinking of their happiness and has no problem building a magical indoor fort from sheets and pillows or adorably playing “Mr. Napkin Head.”


Sam Baldwin, Sleepless in Seattle
Sam may not believe that Annie—a woman his son Jonah wants to fix him up with—is the one for him, but when Jonah sneaks off to Manhattan to meet her, Sam moves heaven and earth to get to him. Their bond in the film is completely heart-warming.

Eco Lunch Gear Review

As a mom with two little ones eight and five who are really picky eaters, it is no wonder I have to pack their lunches so often. With packing lunches every day the cost for baggies goes up. So, anything that can help my family save money and also save the earth by being more green makes me really happy. I was recently sent a reusable snack bag from Ecolunchgear.com.

Ecolunchgear offers products that help make your lunches more green. There are different reusable bags of all sizes, utensils sets, place mats, napkins and more. 

Each bag is made of only 100% certified organic cotton, which is better for the earth and us. The cotton is certified to GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) and is also Fair Trade and CPSIA (Consumer Products Safety Commission Improvement Act) compliant. The liners are made of waterproof material that consists of nylon with a polyurethane coating (the untreated side comes into contact with the food). The products have been CPSIA tested and is compliant to be in contact with food.
