Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo Giveaway


Given the fact that it takes most women about 40 minutes or more to wash and dry their hair, not including styling and all of the other assorted tasks associated with getting ready, it's understandable that most moms can't find the time to pamper themselves.  With 3 kids, I'm lucky if I find the time to do a "quick, leaning over the tub" hair wash.  From the alternative perspective, there are those that feel the need to wash their hair everyday which is damaging to hair.  This is where it gets complicated, it is important to keep your hair clean, but you shouldn’t wash it too much as it is unhealthy. Powdered or dry shampoos are no new thing; they have actually been around since the 1970’s.

Between me and you "Honey" keepsake journal Review & Giveaway


Between you and me... "A great feature of the Between Me and You™ series thanks to the spiral-bound presentation is that you can simply tear out the pages that might not be relevant to your particular needs. You can even add your own personal questions or even photos on the blank pages that are provided in back. Give one to be filled out and returned by someone special. Or fill one out for that very special person in your life. They're also perfect for parents who'd like to record their own memories to hand down to their children. The result is a unique, handwritten journal that will be cherished for a lifetime. Several additional versions relevant to our many relationships are planned and will be released in the near future." Between Me and You Keepsake Journals are a fairly new line containing 15 different themes; however, in honor of Valentine's Day I am going to focus on the Honey journal. These keepsake journals are a great way to renew that bond between you and a loved one … [Read more...]
