For years, John Frieda Frizz Ease has been the go-to frizz-solution for women everywhere. However, the experts at John Frieda know that no two women have the same hair—and everyone’s frizz-fighting needs are different. Frizz Ease is thrilled to announce five new additions to its arsenal, all developed to help women achieve a customizable frizz-free style. The innovative Frizz Ease® range gives users everything they need from the shower to the finishing touches to banish frizz and create salon-quality, enviably frizz-free curls, waves and everything in between.

In addition to the newest products, the Frizz Ease Collection is sporting an entirely new look—available now and drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.
NEW Frizz Ease® Dream Curls® Shampoo and Conditioner ($6.99): Infuse strands with moisture and shine, reducing frizz before you even begin to style. Formulated to cleanse, hydrate and minimize tangles, just comb these curl perfecting products through wet hair right in the shower to realign curls without weighing hair down. Infused with unique cationic polymers, the shampoo reduces frizz-causing friction and creates slip. Featuring an all new ester, the innovative conditioner detangles and delivers a cushioned, soft feel.

NEW Frizz Ease® Go CurlierTM Heat-Activated Spray ($9.99): Enhance natural curl patterns with this first-of-its-kind spray that creates touchable frizz free definition and even more curl for up to 48 hours. Designed to work with the heat of styling tools, this unique formula delivers even, consistent curls. This product works alongside your curling iron or hot rollers to create truly transformative results.

NEW Frizz Ease® Unwind CurlsTM Calming Crème ($6.99): Revamp tight, kinky ringlets into looser curls with this breakthrough crème. New John Frieda® Unwind CurlsTM Calming Crème delivers undone, relaxed curls with a soft—never stiff—feel.  Featuring an innovative, proprietary styling polymer, Unwind CurlsTM crème elongates and stretches curls as they air dry, while luxurious conditioners eliminate frizz and puffiness.

NEW Frizz Ease® Nourishing Oil Elixir ($9.99): Whether on its own or part of a pro-inspired product cocktail, new Frizz Ease® Nourishing Oil  Elixir works into the hair to deliver the ultimate in softness and manageability. Apply just a few drops of this frizz blocking, strand-smoothing elixir alone or mixed in with your favorite Frizz Ease® Mousse, Gel, or Crème to transform frizz into fabulous style. With natural Argan Oil, a precious oil rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, this nourishing, yet non-greasy, versatile product softens and conditions hair. Whether you need to treat distressed, heat-damaged strands or simply add a coveted extra level of shine, this fast-absorbing oil delivers immediate results you can see and feel.

Now that my little girl has, just turned 4 months old I want to make sure I am working with her as much as possible on developing back support for when she starts to sit up.

Tortle Giveaway 'Baby Gift Guide'



Did you know that every baby is at risk of developing Flat Head Syndrome with one out of two babies being diagnosed with the Syndrome? However there is an amazing item called the Tortle that can help our little ones from developing this syndrome.

The Tortle was developed by Dr. Jane Scott, a Board Certified Pediatrician and Neonatologist. The Tortle beanie is an FDA-cleared patented Class 1 medical device that promotes proper head and neck movement which is essential for appropriate development.  Tortle helps prevent and treat early stages of flat head syndrome: plagiocephaly (the flattening of the baby’s skull) & torticollis (unbalanced neck muscles). Tortle works by gently deflecting a baby’s head from side to side when they are sitting or lying on the back of their head.  The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends regular head repositioning of babies younger than six months.

AIR-O-SWISS Steam Humidifier Review

Remember the old steam-humidifiers. They were awkward and extremely hot, yet they served a valuable purpose. They brought a subtle comfort to otherwise dry rooms that can cause a lot of discomfort to our bodies. It is 2014 and technology has made tremendous leaps forward in the past 10 years. Along with all of the fancy and high-end consumer electronics, the steam humidifier has had a much needed update. Introducing the AOS-S450 by Air-O-Swiss, a fresh and new redesign of the steam humidifier that is smarter, digital, works with a gauge, and best of all, will not burn you. 

Is the humidity of your home ideal? This is a question that you may or may not have wondered in the past. It is one of those issues that, while certainly not life-threatening, can have a measurable impact on your day-to-day life.

ABOUT LE COUVENT DES MINIMES: 400 years ago, a convent was built in the village of Mane in the South of France to shelter the botanist monks of the Minims, who used their considerable knowledge of plants to tend a garden of curative herbs and flowers.  Centuries later, the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary continued the original convention of cultivating beneficial ingredients to help strengthen and restore those in need through food recipes. This emphasis on nourishing and reparative care through nature inspired Le Couvent des Minimes’ own simple yet powerful natural care recipes, the basis of a collection of efficacious formulas that draw on the heritage and traditions of the convent of Mane. The rich, plant-based range is formulated with the highest quality botanicals, offering natural skincare solutions in lush fragrances and beautiful textures. From the monastic heritage of the brand to the garden ingredients it incorporates, Le Couvent des Minimes offers simplicity and authenticity for the modern age.

“Family Guy” Volume 12 DVD Review

“Family Guy” reaches new heights of hilarity in this outrageous collection of 22 uncensored episodes, including fan-favorite “Into Fat Air,” where the Griffins rock Mount Everest, plus the comedy jackpot “Roads to Vegas” and the milestone 200th episode “Yug Ylimaf,” in which Brian and Stewie develop a curious case of reverse aging thanks to a time machine foul-up. It’s a complete season of laughs with celebrity guest voices Johnny Depp, Jon Hamm, Sofia Vergara and more!
Modern Television is an empire that has many ups and downs. The information age, along with Netflix, red box, and other streaming/rental options, has created a very competitive playing field where new television series are born and die, sometimes in the same season. Some TV series manage to stand apart from the rest and become very popular despite the obstacles. Family Guy is a perfect example. 

Introducing Family Guy, volume twelve. This 3 disc set is loaded with commentaries, deleted scenes, hilarious content, and (of course) the “too good for TV” content that was censored, this allows you to view the full episodes in the form which they were intended to be viewed. There are twenty-two episodes on these discs, including the 200th appealing with a stylized black and white look. It looks great on the shelf with the other Family Guy sets.
