Hair up or down?








































Being a mom I am constantly putting my hair up to clean, work with the kids, or just get my hair out of my face, but I do like having it down too so I always try to keep a ponytail with me just in case.  My daughter is quite the same loving to have one on hand when she needs it which is most times when she would like to have her hair down. 

With a bracelet like this one from Ashley Bridget she can have style while alway having a hair band near by in a pinch. Soon as she saw this she said mom I want that and I told her it was for her and showed her how it hold a hair tie. She was in love at first sight. Easy to use, it goes with any outfit just by changing out your hair tie color.

Ashley Bridget to the rescue





































I know there are others like myself who go back and forth all day from having their hair down to having it up in a ponytail or messy bun. I hate having a ponytail around my wrist because they aren't really stylish and they often leave a mark on my easily bruised wrists.

With a hair tie bracelet like this one from Ashley Bridget you can have style and function as well as versatility. You can wear it with the open side up or down, change the color of the band to match your outfits, and alway have a hair tie with you for those moments when it is time to get your hair up and out of the way to get down to work.

If you are looking for a great gift for a teen or anyone you know who love to wear ponytails this comes in a nice gift box that really shows you care. I love my bracelet and wear it almost everyday. It gives me complete freedom to know I have a hair tie with me when I need it.

Hair clogs are a thing of the past



Having had more girls then boys we have always had a problem with clogged drains from hair build up. I so wish we had been able to find these years ago. These have been a complete blessing. A gross blessing but a blessing none the less. I just feed one of the daisy's down the drain and every week or so we pull them up and cut off any build up, if there is too much and we can't reuse then we just trade it out for a new one. I do suggest using one of the snakes to clean your drain before you start using your daisy to get it extra clean. I know we were surprised by how much was already down our drain before using our daisy's. 

Again these are awesome and have helped a lot. We are now in our new apartment and we have already installed a daisy. The hair catcher can be found on my affiliate link below.

Making a New Home


Having moved into a new home I was quick to pick up there had been a smoker here before. The smell just comes and goes and drives me nuts. I hate the smell, it makes me sick, have headaches, and really bothers my sleep. Just when I thought I couldn't stand it any longer we found my box of review items and quickly plugged in our Essential Oil Deffuser from Natrogix which has been a complete life saver. 

I love that this can stay off with no light, or you can have it on color change as it cycles through 7 colors, white, yellow, red, blue, green, orange,and purple, or you can pick which color is your favorite and keep it on a steady color. 

This diffuser takes 150 ml of water to work and has a auto shut off  for safety. It is a cool mist so you don't have to worry about hot liquids. We used Peppermint Essential Oil to give our new apartment a better smell overall. I love Essential Oil Diffusers for doing yoga, meditating, and even at bedtime to help with sleep. At bedtime we just put in a few drops of lavender essential oil and we are off to sleep in no time. 

The Natrogix Essential Oil Diffuser can be found at my affiliate link below.

Perfectly Round eggs and pancakes


We are a breakfast family so we like to change it up quite often from sandwiches to a full out buffett depending on how many of the family are present. My girls love round eggs for sandwiches and round pancakes for breakfast. 

With a silicone egg round like these from ABAM you can have perfectly round eggs or pancakes. You can even use scrambled eggs and add your own fillings to make tiny omelets for sandwiches too. 

Easy to use just spray mold before use, apply slight pressure when you add egg or pancake mix, then when the ring moves easily, remove ring and flip. It really is that easy. 

The ABAM ring mold 4 pack is available at my affiliate link below.

Layer it up



I have lots of plain shirts and I like to dress them up from time to time with a bit of extra color. A necklace like this one from Vogueknock is great because it breaks up the neckline nice with lots of strands of different sizes filled with pretty fuchsia stones.

It is a gold tone which isn't my favorite I like silver tones better but it works with this necklace and looks great with my plain tops.

I love that I can change this up to dress up t shirts, turtlenecks, dress shirts, sweaters, and dresses. This necklace is very versatile and will be a new favorite.

My 14 year old even likes this one, not to old looking that she won't wear it so that says a lot for being fashion forward and liked by the younger generation.

Bunny Cuteness Overload




I love cute slippers but I am so sad these did not come in my size but that is ok I had a mini me who loves these slippers and fits them perfectly.

These slippers are so comfy, great for lazy laid back days. You know the days where you can relax all day and not worry about anything.

Who couldn't be a little more relaxed just slipping these on. I mean come on. Cute Soft Bunnies with bows. Everytime I show these to someone they say they are so cute. Check out those cute carrots.

Slippers are also great to have on hand at your front door so you can change out of your shoes and not track outside dirt into your home. This slippers are super easy to literally just slip on and you are ready to go.
