Salon Feeling at Home - Hair Care Products We All Need

Image
I love going to get my hair cut...  Not the cut of it, but the fact of the relaxation of having someone wash my hair (the salon shampoo always smells so great... ) then the brushing, cutting and styling... It is nice to be pampered from time to time... 
I was lucky enough to be sent a great product and I am totally loving it!  I was sent the Infusium 23 Repair and Renew line and it is the smell and end result of going to the salon, but without the price!!!! Infusium has several hair care lines that is sure to be a match for what you need! From the Repair and Renew that I was sent, they also have : Moisture Replenisher, Volume Builder, Frizz Controller and Color Defender!  I will be honest, I was a bit skeptical about the leave in product... (The third step) Because whenever I have used leave in products in the past, it looked as though my hair had fallen in a bucket of grease or something by the end of the day...   That is NOT the case with this!  I do not wash my hair each day (I do …

Big Top Scooby Doo - October 9th

Image
When Broxton saw the previews for Big Top Scooby Doo, he was so excited!!!  He kept talking about how he wanted to see it and was just too cute for words!  I was happy to know that I was going to be receiving it for review, but I kept it a secret until it arrived...  The day it came, I handed him the case and he was jumping up and down ready to watch it.. We popped a bowl of popcorn and settled in...  Popcorn... Circus and a movie?  That was a given!!!!!
SYNOPSIS: When the Brancusi Circus comes to town, Fred — who has always had dreams about performing under the big top — jumps at the opportunity to visit the show. Upon their arrival, Scooby and the gang learn the circus performers have been terrorized by a werewolf who has not only frightened them but has also stolen jewelry from circus spectators. The circus is blamed for the attacks and faces a potential shutdown. Desperate for help, the circus ringleader turns to Scooby-Doo and his pals. To get close to the action, they all go underco…

Who's That Girl? New Girl Season One

Image
Hey Girl.......  What 'Cha Doin?
Have you seen the show, New Girl?  It is currently in season two and I am LOVING it... Marc and I got into watching it last year, I even had to talk about it on Facebook, as it is just THAT good. Well, not to mention I was a bit confused, I think I missed the second episode and I was lost for a minute...

It starts off with Jess (Zooey Deschanel) breaking up with her boyfriend...
She moves in with three guys that she does not even know...
Then, the next episode, one of the roommates has changed...
I was lost as to how they explained all of that, but then I learned that the "new" roommate had been away playing basketball in Europe or something... No matter what happened, it all works out and the show is awesome.   I can not wait to see what is in store this year...  I really want Jess and Nick to hook up, but I am not sure how that is going to play... I am thinking that I am not the only one, as it has somewhat been discussed this year!  Okay, I a…

Dinosaurs A to Z - All New DVD

Image
Broxton is starting to venture out more as far as having new "favorites" but I do not think that cars, trains and dinosaurs are going anywhere anytime soon!  He was so excited when he looked into the package that arrived the other day... He spotted Buddy and knew that he had a new Dinosaur Train DVD to watch.   Well, we finally were able to watch it and it did not disappoint!
From the educational stand point to the fun of learning and the music...
How can you NOT love the Dinosaur Train? The DVD starts out with Buddy, Shiny, Tiny and Don trying to figure out what to get their mom for her birthday... They discuss cleaning the nest... One mentions scrubbing their feet, since Mom always wants them too... but dad comes along and tells them of a big surprise he has in store... Well, typical young kid fashion... the secret slips out almost as soon as mom gets home... So, they go ahead and tell her of her birthday surprise...  A ride on the Dinosaur Train as they go to see  the si…

Image
From the Mouth of Barney:
SUIT UP!!!!!
How I Met Your Mother - Season 7 Available today, October 2nd.


SUIT UP!
Not only is How I Met Your Mother’s seventh season coming out on DVD and Blu-ray on October 2, but Barney Stinson’s favorite holiday, International Suit Up Day (ISUD), is right behind it on October 13. Of course, Barney knows his designers and wears them on his sleeve – literally. So to help you perfect the Barney Stinson look, here are some tips to make the most of ISUD.   
The Gray Suit In a lighter shade or even in more of a charcoal, think of it as the anchor of your suiting up wardrobe.
The Navy Suit Luckily, navy isn’t the snooze it used to be. Now a classic choice, it travels seamlessly from the boardroom to a legendary evening out.
The Black Suit
 A staple for every man’s suit collection, to be sure -- just make sure it’s slim fitted and stylish. No one wants to look like a funeral director at cocktail hour.
The Pinstripe Suit Get a little adventurous and pair your pinstripes …

David Boreanaz in Bones Season 7 - October 9th

Image
For all of you that are BONES fans... The seventh season is headed  your way!
(I have never seen BONES, but one of my closest friends loves it... I don't know if it is the show she loves the most, or that guy... Because she did meet him once and made a complete idiot out of herself trying to say hey.  I think he played it cool, but she was mortified about it all!)
That being said... if you are a BONES fan... Plan to purchase the seventh season on October 9th.
It would make a great gift to open this Holiday Season!!!!

Allermates Reminder

Image
With so much getting ready to start, I just wanted to remind parents of AllerMates...  Between visiting Pumpkin Patches, going Trick or Treating or even at the local "Fall Festival" it would be a great idea for those you love that have allergies to keep AllerMates in mind...  I reviewed AllerMates in the past, but I just wanted to remind you again...

In Time For Halloween: Spooky Stories

Image
Just in time for Halloween:
Spooky Stories!!!! Broxton likes the characters from Shrek... Although, truth be told, I think Marc and the boys like him WAY MORE!!!!!    But, Broxton has decided that he enjoys watching Monsters vs. Aliens.  Not really sure when this new fascination happened, but it did ...
So now... They have Spooky Stories, around an hour and a half of shorts with the characters we have grown to love... I think this would be a great trick or treat idea if you have just one visitor that heads your way for Halloween... I know when I was younger, my Nana didn't give out candy for Halloween, but she made sure she had a "gift" for any of the grand kids that came by to see her in their costumes... This would be great for situations like that... Or, since Halloween is on a weeknight this year, you could just stay in and watch a movie that night... Here is a perfect one for you!

SYNOPSIS: Join Shrek, Donkey, Puss and B.O.B. as they get the fright of their lives in s…

I love Tom and Jerry...
Don't get me wrong, I don't sit around and hope for it to come on, but when it does... We will watch from time to time.  Honestly, I remember it from childhood and never watched with Broxton.  Then, one day, I walked in to see Marc all snuggled on the couch watching them with Broxton.  I just laughed and sat down to join in the trip down memory lane...  On October 2nd, Tom and Jerry set out on a new adventure...
