Maple Sugar Lane: The perfect headband for the holidays


I adore this Black Headband with Red Felt Rose Flower Blossoms from the darling Etsy shop, Maple Sugar Lane.  The red really pops, and it's a gorgeous color.  My seven-year-old daughter can wear this and so can I.  It fits us both and looks so cute.  I'll have to sneak it away from her every once in a while. 

This headband is handmade with care and love.  There is such detail in the high-quality felt roses.  And at only $5.95, you can't go wrong.  What a fantastic price for such a gorgeous piece.

Choose from a flat black or black satin headband.  I have the satin version, and it looks so lovely and elegant.

Love it, but need a different color combination?  Contact this wonderful shop for custom orders.  Be sure to check out all of their unique hair accessories.  They really are something else.

Right now you can take 10% OFF your first order with the discount code ROCK10 at checkout.

Burt's Bees: New! Medicated Lip Balm


Burt's Bees Lip Balm is a part of my daily make-up routine.  I love this stuff.  I was thrilled to try their new Medicated Lip Balm with Eucalyptus Oil.  This keeps my lips wonderfully moisturized.  I really love the penetrating menthol oil and blend of eucalyptus oil and shea butter.  I can't stand dry, cracked lips, and I know Burt's Bees will always give my lips the hydration they need.  If you're a fan of Burt's Bees or you've always wanted to give it a try, this medicated lip balm is definitely a winner!

Bath & Body Works: Fall Treats


How can you not love the PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gels from Bath & Body Works?!?  I keep these in my purse and car.  My daughter is seriously addicted to these and wants them in every scent possible known to man.  She keeps one in her desk and backpack.  They are super handy, a great on-the-go size and smell good enough to eat!

The Foaming Hand Soaps are so great, too!  I use these in our bathrooms and kitchen.  The Pumpkin Caramel Latte Anti-Bacterial Gentle Foaming Hand Soap smells sooooooooooo delicious!  Who knew soap could smell this good.  I really enjoy the foaming soap, but you can get Deep Cleansing Hand Soap as well.

Atopalm: Moisturizing Hand Treatment


I am a devoted fan of Atopalm Skincare.  This company creates gentle products for people suffering from allergies, rosacea dryness and sensitivity.  I have very sensitive skin so their products work wonders for me. 

I had the opportunity to try their antioxidant rich, anti-aging Moisturizing Hand Treatment.  I love this stuff!  It leaves my hands silky soft without a greasy feel.  The moisturizer is lightweight, doesn't have a heavy smell and is paraben-free. 

This hand treatment is perfect year-round, but I'm really happy to have this during these colder months.

Red Envelope: Hall Gallery Frame Set


I am completely smitten with my new Hall Gallery Frame Set from Red Envelope.  This looks terrific in my hallway and adds that perfect personal touch I've been looking for.

This was a cinch to set up.  It comes with a handy hanging template to help you place this on your wall.   My husband had this up in no time.  All we needed was a level and a screwdriver, and we were good to go.

This frame set comes in black, espresso and white.  I have the espresso, and it's gorgeous.  The rich color of the wood really stands out from white mats (included) and the silver metal hardware.

Measurements:  42 1/2" x 15 3/4"H overall

This set-up really took the guesswork out of hanging family photos.  I think it's an excellent way to display photos, kids art, etc.  I highly recommend this Hall Gallery Frame Set.

Red Envelope offers some gorgeous gifts for the holidays.  Head on over to this link to take 15% OFF your order.

Proactiv 365


You've all seen them....the Proactiv commercials on TV.  I always find myself listening to the testimonials on their commercials and have been intrigued to see if their products actually work.  I am happy to say that they do.

I was sent a Proactiv kit in the mail to review.  Included in my kit was the three step treatment, the refining mask and a sample of the green tea moisturizer.  I never had acne as a teen.  My skin was smooth and clear.  It wasn't until I was an adult that I started to see small pimples show up on various places of my forehead and chin.  Ugh, talk about annoying.  They come and go and thankfully aren't very noticeable, but of course I know they are there.

I have extremely sensitive skin so I was a little apprehensive using these products at first.  The Renewing Cleanser contains an exfoliant.  Normally I cannot use exfoliants daily.  They're just too harsh and irritate my skin.  This cleanser was gentle, but still a bit too rough for my skin type.  I find I use this every other day. 

I really do love their Revitalizing Toner.  This is Step 2 in the system and really gets in my pores and cleans them out.  This is my favorite part of the skincare routine.

Step 3 is their Repairing Treatment.  This works great on top of any affected areas.

Overall, I am pleased with this system.  With my sensitive skin, I do find that I feel a slight burning sensation after all three steps are used.  The degree varies.  Sometimes it's pretty mild.  Other times it's slightly uncomfortable.  Again, I feel this is due to my sensitive skin. 

They also offer the Proactiv 365 Program.  Now you can receive customized assistance from experts 24/7/365.  Proactiv wants every customer to receive the best results possible.  Get expert skin care advisers on call.  Get Free Online Consultations with Drs. Rodan & Fields and understand the secrets to a lifetime of great skin.  This is a great tool to have access to. 

If you've been wondering if you should give Proactiv a shot, I say go for it.  You have nothing to lose with their  60-day money back guarantee!  Finally get the clear skin you deserve.

“I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Proactiv and received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

UNITE: 7Seconds Dry Shampoo


It's no secret that washing your hair everyday can cause unwanted damage.  Many I know skip a day or two.  I've always washed my hair every single day.  Yes, this can take up too much of my time, and using a blow dryer can really dry my hair out.

Thank goodness for 7Seconds Dry Shampoo from UNITE.  I love this stuff!  Now I spray this on in the morning, and my hair instantly feels and smells great without the use of water.  Can someone say, TIME SAVER?!?  It absorbs excess oil extremely well with no visible powder residue and gives my hair some added volume which is nice.

At $28.75 a bottle, it's a bit pricey for my budget, but don't get me wrong, it works like a dream.  It would be nice to have some of this on hand when I want to get up and go.  With two young kids at home, this product really is a miracle worker.

ZAZOO KiDS: Photo Clock



This is one cool clock with a TON of features that will grow with your child.  Just watch the short video to see what it's all about!

My daughter is older now so she just uses the rotating digital photo frame/clock feature.  However, this is perfect for toddlers who are learning about time and when it is “awake time” or “rest time”.  This is a terrific way to help establish healthy sleeping patterns. 

The ZAZOO KiDS clock comes in a variety of fun styles for boys and girls.  Think holiday gift idea!

Pepperidge Farm: Goldfish Sandwich Bread


The Goldfish Sandwich Bread from Pepperidge Farm is soooo fun!  My kids really love it, and it's great for my son who can't stand crust.

This bread comes in three varieties - soft white, 100% whole wheat (available where Pepperidge Farm fresh bakery items are sold in New England) and honey whole wheat.  My kids like the honey whole wheat that contains 18 grams of whole grain.  The bread has a nice soft texture, 3 grams of fiber and essential vitamins in each serving.  There is no high fructose corn syrup added and 0g trans fat.  Yay!

Head to your local market to pick up some of this yummy bread from Pepperidge Farm!  Make mealtime and school lunches fun!

    Sally Hansen: Perfect the Arch

    I was able to test out the duel slant point tip tweezers from Sally Hansen.  I have to say that they did a great job making my eyebrows look their best.  They feature a one-of-a-kind tip that does not one job, but two!  Use the slanted edge against the skin for larger areas like in between brows, and adjust hand to use point end for detail work along the brow line.  These were comfortable to hold and even came with a little rubber tip cap to protect these tweezers and keep them performing their best.

    Sylvan Learning: Fit for Algebra - Take the Algebra Fitness Challenge!


    Math was my downfall.  It was my worst subject in school.  Thankfully, both of my kids do well in math.  Once I graduated high school, I dreaded taking college math.  I even put it off in my college schedule.  However, I made it through my math classes - not without a lot of hard work though.  I wish when I was younger I had taken the Sylvan Fit 4 Algebra screener

    66% of parents across the country believe that there is an "algebra crisis" in America.  Most believe American students fall behind in math compared to other nations (based on an online survey of approximately 1000 parents).  Wow...we need to help our students succeed in math.  You can start by taking the Sylvan Learning Fit 4 Algebra screener.  This tool will help you understand and determine what your child needs assistance with.

    According to Sylvan: "A critical gateway subject, algebra is the foundation for higher-level mathematics and science courses in high-school, which in turn can open doors for college and lead to better careers and lifetime earning potential."

    I tried this out with my son who is nine and in the fourth grade.  He was eager to take the test and was excited for the challenge.  There were some problems I knew he had not learned yet, but he tried to answer them to the best of his ability.  The test was a very easy process and getting the end evaluation of my son's algebra potential wasn't difficult to do.  I was able to see what he needed improvement on immediately.  This was great to know, and I can hopefully help him get ahead of the game so he's more than prepared when harder algebra curriculum is taught to him. 

    I encourage you to take the Fit 4 Algebra Fitness Challenge.  You'll learn a lot about what your child needs to succeed.  Making sure your child is well prepared for what the world has in store for them is so important.  Giving them the tools to do their best is such a wonderful gift.

    Pearl iZUMi: Select Series Attack Jersey

    PEARL iZUMi Select Series Attack Jersey – This is my new favorite cycling shirt!  I love how it fits on my body and how comfortable it is.  It also quickly dissipates sweat from my body keeping me cool and dry.  What I love most about this shirt is the cut around the mid section.  My other jerseys hug my belly, but this one does not.
    SELECT Transfer fabric sets the benchmark for moisture transfer keeping you cool and dry.  A full length zipper provides venting as well as ease of putting on and taking off the shirt.  Elasticized gripper on back keeps him in place so it does not ride up your back.  3 back pockets allows you to pack essentials such as your energy bar, wallet and car keys.  Last, but certainly not least, you want to look good on your bike and be safe; the jersey has sublimated graphics and reflective elements for low-light visibility.
    Bottom Line – At $65 MSRP, this jersey from PEARL iZUMi rivals other jerseys twice its price!  I’ve tried many other brands, but this one tops them all in fit, comfort, and style.

    CRKT: Mini My Tighe Pocket Knife


    CRKT Mini My Tighe Pocket Knife – There have been quite a few instances when I’ve needed something to cut with and all I had were my car keys.  FYI, car keys make a very poor cutting tool!  This is where a pocket knife would come in handy.  I’ve been carrying the CRKT Mini My Tighe folding knive for over a month now and will continue to carry it everywhere I go.  I previously carried another CRKT Mini My Tighe, but the serrated version.   I love how the knife looks and I look forward to using it each time I get.  At 3.73” in length folded/6.5” opened, 3.8 oz in weight, with a 3” blade this knife is easily portable for everyday use.
    This Mini My Tighe’s blade is made from 1.4116 stainless steel in a satin finish with a heavy duty 420J2 stainless steel frame.  Brian Tighe designed the knife and it cuts things like soft butter.  The knife opens with a patented technology called “OutBurst”, which is an assisted opening mechanism which instantly springs the blade open.  Last but not least, there is a clip that can easily hook inside your pant pocket.  Once hooked, it can barely be noticed for a stealthy look.
    Bottom LineCRKT is a one stop shop for high quality knives.  Here, you can find any knife that will fit your personal style and use.  Before leaving for work, this continues to be the checklist I go through: 1. Wallet – check, 2. Car Keys – check, 3. Briefcase – check, 4. Mini My Tighe pocket knife – check - Ready for world-wide domination…

    ToweLocs: Tannenbaum ToweLocs GIVEAWAY

    This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to the lucky winner - Anonymous #8!

    I absolutely LOVE the products from ToweLocs!  How clever and cute!  They are perfect for the kitchen or bathroom. These would make great holiday gifts this year.  Oh how my kids need these!!!


    A bit more about this company:

    ToweLocs was created by Cindy Sawyer, a mom who was repeatedly frustrated every time her hand towels fell off the towel bar, and when her kitchen towels did the same upon opening her oven door.  This was also compounded when her two young children, Keelan and Skylar, could not help themselves and left their hand towels on the bathroom floor after each use. As you may imagine, this was an everyday event in any typical household.

    So she wanted to find a way to not only secure her towels in their rightful place but to also do it with some style.  This sparked the invention of ToweLocs.  After numerous prototypes and designs, she decided on the final design featured now. She was inspired to market her invention when she received multiple compliments from friends and family. ToweLocs are practical household products that add flair to the bath and kitchen towels.

    There are metal and glass ToweLocs to choose from.
