You definitely need this adorable Youth "Blueprint" T-Shirt to accompany the book.  This shirt features their design of the 300S blueprint as built by Carrosserie Fantuzzi.  Marked on the sleeve with the LRRC arrow, this is hands down the softest, highest quality t-shirt you'll ever feel.  Made from a tri-blend material with a brushed finished.  You and your little racer will love it!

Friday Favorites!

TGIF!  Have a great weekend!  Here is a new hair styling tool that I've been enjoying this summer.


Now you can dry and style in one!  This multi-tasking hot air brush from John Frieda has been newly redesigned with a sleeker, 1" ceramic titanium-coated barrel.  This third generation salon shape brush features revolutionary anti-frizz conditioning that adds moisture to hair follicles and ionic technology that produces 50% more ions than other heat tools.

I have long hair and don't just use this tool to dry my hair.  That would take too long.  Women with shorter hair can probably get away with this as their hair dryer.  I use this Salon Shape Hot Air Brush after drying my hair with a blow dryer until it's fairly dry.  I then go in with this hot brush to give my hair volume and bounce.  I love the way it looks and have skipped using my curling iron for a while now.  Features two heat settings and a cool setting for extra shine.

Pick up one and try it out for yourself.  Available at drug, mass and food retails and online here.

Giveaway: Budsies Gift Certificate - Turn drawings into custom stuffed animals!

Product provided to me from Budsies.  All opinions are my own.



Now you can turn your child's drawing into a custom stuffed animal. Kids go crazy over this, and quite frankly, as a parent, so did I!

One of my daughter's favorite thing to do is draw.  When I told her she could draw anything she wanted and Budsies would turn it into a stuffed animal, she was on board!  She created "Spant," half spider, half ant.  LOL!  Don't hesitate to get creative.  Budsies can do it!


It was super easy to order.  I took a picture of her completed drawing with my cell phone and uploaded it to their website.  They will ask you for special instructions or information that pertains to your drawing.

Your Budsie will ship within approximately 5 weeks.  You will receive updates via email about artwork approval, custom sewing completion and when they ship your new pal via trackable FedEx.


She patiently waited until her Budsie arrived in the mail.  When it finally came, she was super excited. It was even better than we had expected.  Talk about custom!  It was exactly like her drawing.  What attention to detail!  I was thoroughly impressed with the design, craftsmanship and quality.

Budsies are approximately 16" in size.  Their stuffed animals are made from safe, hypoallergenic material.


You will definitely want your child to experience this for themselves.  It's a magical experience that they will never forget.  I can't say enough great things about this company.  You and your child will have so much fun.

Giveaway Time:  Budsies is giving one lucky reader their very own code for a free Budsie!  A $99 value.  Right now they are having a June special - $69 for your very own Budsie.
