  • Dream Team Pets are a Great Gift for Transitioning Toddlers


    Give the gift of sleep this Holiday Season!

    dtp-logo-color-r

    I have the hardest time keeping my 3 year old son in bed every night. It is like he immediately gets full of energy once the lights go out. Now with Dream Team pets they get rewarded for staying in bed. This makes a great gift for moms of toddlers who also have the same problem. Dream Team Pets come with a stuffed animal, a lion, puppy and kitten, and a certificate and book with stickers. My son loves puppies so I got him that one.

    DSC_0278

     

    I think it is a great idea to reward them for staying in bed rather than getting after them for not being in bed. Moving your child from a crib to a toddler bed can be very difficult at first. I think this is a great way to help train your child to stay in bed, and having the comfy stuffed animal to help guide them is perfect for the transition. This has been approved by pediatricians for helping kids sleep in their own bed.

    Right now you can order one for your toddler in transition for 30% off using the promo code USFGUIDE. Perfect for the Christmas Holidays. Your little one will be thrilled to see their Dream Pet under the tree!

  • Hair Tutorial: Side Chignon–The French Bun


    (Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links)

    Otherwise known as a French bun, a chignon traditionally sits at the nape of the neck. In its loose, messy form it’s great for hiding bad hair days. In its smooth, polished form it’s perfect for a night of theater and fine dining.

    Here’s our simple step-by-step tutorial for this versatile style–from the professionals on the Color Crew at Madison Reed!

    Side Chignon Tutorial

    1. Create a deep side-part, as clean or messy as you like.

    2. Gather all hair behind opposite ear from part. Smooth with your favorite brush if desired, or leave messy.

    3. Secure into a ponytail with a hair-tie.

    4. Separate ponytail into three sections. Take bottom-most section and start twisting.

    5. While twisting section, curl around base of ponytail. Secure to base of ponytail with pin.

    6. Repeat with two remaining sections twisting into complimentary curls.

    7. Pin the two remaining sections into place as you go.

    8. Once a completed curled Chignon has been pinned into place, pull out small sections for a romantic feel, or smooth and perfect with a tail comb for a modern, clean result. Spray to hold.

  • 5 Pro Tips for Silky, Shiny Hair


    (Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links)

    Shiny hair often translates to healthier-looking hair as well. Here are 5 tips for achieving this lustrous look courtesy of Madison Reed

    5 Tips for Shiny Hair

    1. Protect from Heat:

    Be sure to apply a heat protectant product to your hair before your heat styling or blow drying regimen to protect your hair from increased damage.

    2. Banish Build Up:

    All of the product we use to protect our hair or achieve a particular style can sometimes stick to the hair shaft and create build up. Performing a deep hair cleanse is a great way to restore shine and remove excess build up. Try using apple cider vinegar with a mixture of water to treat and cleanse your mane. Mix a one-to-one ratio of each and apply the mixture in the shower. Shampoo while the mixture is still on your hair and condition as usual.

    3. Chill Out:

    Finish a shower or bath with a cup of cold water on your hair. This will help lock down the hair cuticles, making the surface smoother, which reflects more light and offers incredible shine.

    Water saving tip: Fill a big cup or pitcher with cold water while waiting for the water to warm up before your shower.

    The Cool Shot Button: Use your hairdryer nozzle to direct cool air down the hair shaft. It will smooth out the cuticle and add a nice shine to your hair.

    4. Stay Hydrated:

    Drink plenty of water! Hydrated hair will shine from the inside out.

    5. Condition, Condition, Condition:

    Using a deep conditioner or a leave-in conditioner is essential when trying to achieve a shinier, healthier head of hair. Remember, hydrated hair is happy hair.

    What are you waiting for? Now is the perfect time to try Madison Reed’s healthier for you color! Happy October! Take $10 off your first purchase of Madison Reed hair color – just use the offer code OCTOBERLOVE at checkout.

  • Lots of Action in Keanu Reeves New Movie John Wick


     MV5BMTU2NjA1ODgzMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTM2MTI4MjE@._V1_SX214_AL_

    I was able to see an early screening of John Wick. It is an action packed adventure from beginning to end. Someone dies every five minutes in the movie. It starts out with a retired hit mans wife dying. While he is in mourning some punk thugs kill his new puppy that was a gift from his departed wife and steal his car.

    images

    When the guy brings the car to his boss, John Leguizamo,  he knows that the car belongs to John Wick and he is immediately upset and tells the guy he has messed up big time. The death of his wife and his new puppy sends John Wick into hit man mode and he pretty much hunts down everyone and kills them all.

    John Wick opens tomorrow October 24th in theaters. It is well worth the watch. Keanu does a great job as a gun blaring, revenge seeking, killer.

  • Red Pack Cooking Kit Giveaway


    rotator-redpack

    Redpack is focused on slow cooking this fall; and encouraging families to have a hot meal waiting after a busy school/work day. Using tomatoes in soups, stews and casseroles may also offer more nutrition than fresh. When tomatoes are heated, the antioxidant lycopene (linked to several health benefits) is released. Slow cookers are a great way to cook great tasting food without having to be a slave to the stove. So while you are working, a tasty, warm meal will be waiting for you at home. I use my crock pot all the time. I love coming home and smelling dinner!

    I recently received a crock pot cooking kit from Redpack with canned tomatoes and recipes. We recently tried the Rustic Italian Chicken recipe and we loved it! It was a meal that was easy to cook and pleased everyone.

    20141010_153747

    Giveaway #1:

    One lucky reader can win their own cooking kit by entering the Giveaway below! The kit will contain 2-28oz cans of crushed tomatoes and 1-28oz can of Redpack sauce, wooden spoon, and recipes, such as the Rustic Italian chicken and sausage & sweet potato chili.

    My contest runs from October 22 to November 12. US residents ages 18+ can enter to win.

    Giveaway #2:

    Redpack also will be hosting a promotion starting Oct. 22 — Nov. 12 during which they will give away two slow cookers a day for three weeks on its facebook page — that’s 44 slow cookers! Just go to https://www.facebook.com/redpacktomatoes to enter. In addition, one lucky winner will win a Slow Cooker grand prize package that includes a state-of-the-art slow cooker, a serving and braising tongs (total prize value estimated at $330).
