New Costumes for 2015 - Elsa Costume Review

**I received the product featured free of charge in order to give an honest review.  No other product or compensation was received.  My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**

 
 

 

 What little child doesn't like to dress up?  What little girl doesn't like to dress up as one of her favorite princesses?  My daughter sure isn't the exception.  She loves to dress up and we were so excited to have the opportunity to review this product. 


Costume SuperCenter has so many great costumes to choose from.  This Elsa costume was one of the many new costume choices they offer on their website.   Costume SuperCenter has such a wide variety of costumes.  I find more costumes I like on there than I ever see in one store during Halloween season.  Sometimes I love just going on the site and looking around to plan ahead.  I love that you can go to a site online all year long to find costumes rather than just once a year.  These costumes make great gifts for your children at any time of year to use as dress up clothes, or they are perfect for that next Halloween costume.

 

 This little girl is no exception to the Frozen craze.  She was so excited to get this costume!!  

We ended up getting a size 7/8 for my daughter.  The sizing runs pretty true to size.  My daughter is a little on the small size for her age but with having a long torso she is right at the size for her age.  This dress was a perfect fit on the length of the dress.  Of course my daughter is too skinny for most things so it was a little big on the waist area but since it was roomy it would be great for many other children that aren't as tiny as mine.   The fit was great and it would be great for any 7 or 8 year old girl of an average size.


The fabric and style of this dress was similar to many other Elsa costumes I have seen for sale in stores.  It is not the cheapest quality of costumes I have seen but it is also not a very expensive quality costume either.  So with that being said this costume is at the perfect affordable price range.  At only $19.99 it is a steal of a deal!! I have seen many costumes of a very similar type going for at least $10 more.


My overall review of this product is a 4 star.  This product is a great kids product.  Of course it isn't expensive and handmade so it is made out of thinner fabric.  I am hoping it will last her a while before she wears it out.  Overall I love this product! It has a great fit, great price, and great look.  If you are looking for a great affordable costume I recommend you try Costume SuperCenter!!

BEFORE nuNaat Brazilian Keratin

As you can see here my daughter has very curly hair which has a mind of its own.  I may have just a little bit of wave to my hair but I would never classify my hair as curly like hers.  Her hair is also a lot thicker than my hair so again completely different.  My hair is very thin and fine so there are many products I can not use on my hair.  

With my daugther's beautiful hair being so curly we can have a major problem of it being so frizzy.  Curly hair has a completely different type of cuticle than straight hair.  You have to care for the hair much differently if you want to be able to define the curls and make them not just frizz all the time.  It has been quite the feat learning how to take care of her hair type since I have different hair.  I loved being able to review the new nuNaat Brazilian Keratin Hair Collection on my daughters hair.


AFTER nuNaat Brazilian Keratin for 2 weeks

nuNaat has some great products!!!  I loved trying this Brazilian Keratin hair collection on my daughters hair.  This collection has 5 components.  There is a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, leave-in treatment, and a serum.  After just the first use of these products I could see a difference in her hair.  The first use I used all the products.  After the first use I would use the mask about twice a week but use the other products every time I would wash her hair.  My two favorite products of this collection are the hair mask and the leave-in treatment.  These two products really reduced the frizziness of her hair in just a couple of uses.  The only part of this collection I actually did not like was the serum.  This serum was very sticky instead of smooth like other products I have used on her hair in the past.  The serum didn't smooth her hair as I would have liked.  It tended to just make it feel sticky and have the dirt stick to her hair easier.  It also made her curls very hard to style. Other than that I have loved all of these products for her hair.  As you can see in the before picture her hair tended to be very frizzy.  After using the products as recommended on the bottles for only 2 weeks, I saw a significant change in the frizziness.  Her hair was much softer and the curls were much more defined.  This product worked great for curly hair.  I wouldn't use it on my hair just because it is just a little to heavy for my fine hair, but if you have curly or thicker hair this product would be great for you.


After reviewing the product we decided to give her a cute hair cut.  With continued use of this collection her hair still looks amazing.  I only wish my hair could look this great!!!

**I received the product featured free of charge in order to give an honest review.  No other product or compensation was received.  My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61shO-1TCCL._SL1000_.jpg


I was excited to try this new product.  I am always using moisturizers to keep my skin very hydrated so that I don't develop wrinkles.  Being in my 30s I am a lot more cautious about what I put on my skin.  I don't want to develop more skin problems than I already have.  I also don't want to start developing wrinkles earlier than I have to.  This Youth Glow Eye Gel is great!  It goes on very smooth with just the tiniest amount.  It doesn't feel too thick like it is caked on.  It really feels light and fresh. I really like that it has actually helped the redness tone around my eyes start to diminish.  This eye gel is great for those dark circles you get under your eyes after a bad nights sleep.  My eyes were puffy and dark and after I put the gel on my eyes felt fresher and also looked lighter and less puffy.  This eye gel is very hydrating and can possibly help prevent wrinkles.  I have come to love this product in such a short time.  I can't wait to see the results after longer use. I look forward to seeing more great products from goPure Naturals!

Purex PowerShot Detergent Review & GIVEAWAY

**I received the product featured free of charge in order to give an honest review.  No other product or compensation was received.  My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**


Purex has outdone themselves again coming out with yet another wonderful product!!

New Purex PowerShot detergent simplifies the laundry routine by taking the guesswork out of the measuring.  Purex PowerShot is the only bottle that automatically dispenses the right amount of super concentrated formula with 50% more stain fighting power in every drop* (*VS regular Purex liquid detergent)


Easy to Use
Just open the cap, fill the bottle upside down to deliver one super concentrated dose of detergent.  Flip the bottle back upright, and you are done!  The PowerShot engine automatically refills and is ready for the next dose.

Just the Right Amount
The built-in auto-dosing technology in the bottle does the measuring for you, so there's no waste and results in a perfect clean every time!
  • Use 1 flip for regular loads
  • Use 2 flips for large or extra dirty loads 

 My kids love to help me with laundry and we have made it one of their chores around the house to help with the laundry.  They will usually sort the laundry and then one of them will usually put a load in the washer but then I have to come measure the soap into the cup then start it.  My son always wants to do it by himself but I always hesitate letting him because I don't want him to use too much detergent.  I love Purex PowerShot detergent!!  I can now let my son start the laundry all by himself and I don't have to worry about him using too much detergent.  It smells wonderful just like the other products I have used by Purex.  I love that this detergent is so concentrated.  Before this detergent I would sometimes wash a load twice if it just doesn't smell or look clean.  In our home we sometimes have had to wash a load of laundry twice because of sweaty gym clothes and kids that love playing outdoors.  This detergent will get my laundry looking and smelling clean with just one wash AND LITTLE DETERGENT!!! 


To celebrate the release of the NEW Purex® PowerShot™ detergent, Purex will be hosting an amazing giveaway!
  • Three grand prize winners will win a Whirlpool washer & dryer set. 
  • 300 second-place winners will receive a bottle of PowerShot.

Purex® PowerShot™ detergent will be in stores soon! Watch the video to see how it does the measuring for you!

It amazes me how much you get with your money for this deal!!


We chose pepperoni pizza because that is our family favorite.  My favorite part of the food was the bread twists.  They were so delicious I could have eaten the whole bag myself.  There was plenty of food for the 4 of us.  You can have up to 6 people with this deal so you probably wouldn't have any food left over but with just the 4 of us we had 2 pieces of pizza and one bread twist left.



It was so good to see my family all together having a great time and getting along.  I always find my children so fun to watch.


 My husband was so good at helping the kids learn how to bowl.  It was so fun to watch to watch my son trying to guide the ball just where he wanted it to go.



I love the service we received at FatCats!!  Every employee was very respectful and made our experience great.  We got our shoes and picked up the bowling balls we wanted to use then went and placed our food order.  When our food order was ready they brought it to our table.  It was so nice to have good examples of good service for my kids to see. One of our balls got stuck and one of the girls at the front desk was kind enough to go and get it for us.  Overall our experience at FatCats was WONDERFUL!!  It was also my first time there so I didn't know what to expect.  They also have an arcade and miniature golf.  These are not included in the family deal but would also add fun activities to your night.


If you are a Utah local I recommend you take your family for a fun family night using this deal!!


I love to see my kids happy and having fun. It was a wonderful experience for my children to be able to have.




The coolest thing about the night is that I won the game!!! I never win at bowling and I hardly ever break 100 so it was a great game for me.  So much fun.  I recommend it for your next family outing.



Even my hot husband had a great time. ;) I love to see my family happy and having fun.

Check out the deal for FatCats today!!

DrainWig Review, Promo Code, & GIVEAWAY

**I received the featured product free of charge in order to give an honest review.  No other product or compensation was received.  My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**


 If you ever head to clean out your clogged shower drain you know, how gross and disgusting that glob of wet hair can be.  The solution is finally here! Introducing DrainWig! There's no more need for harmful chemicals that will ruin your pipes or dredging your drain by hand.  DrainWig is an easy solution for a nasty problem.  Tub, sink, or shower, DrainWig is the perfect  solution for keeping drains unclogged.  


Of course they have the cute bathroom decor look to them.  They can go with so much bathroom decor and I like that they are white so they are close to the color of the tub and don't stand out way too much.


I don't know a single person that doesn't get clogged drains.  We have a lot of problems with clogged drains at our home.  My daughter has long curly hair and it always fills the drains right up.  Of course the short hair can still clog the drain as well.  I was happy to have the chance to review this new product.


With such a simple design this product is very easy to use.  Even though it is very easy to use it comes with very clear instructions.  The DrainWig is VERY easy to install.  Our way of usually cleaning the drain has been to take the bathtub stopper off and then pull all the hair out with a really long pair of needle nose pliers.  I love the idea of having something right there to help get it out and not having to have to go find another tool just to clean the drain.   I haven't had this in the drain quite long enough to be completely covered in hair but I can defiantly see this product starting to catch the hair in the drain.  I think this product has some great potential to save me some time from having to unclog my drains all the time.  If you have drain problems like I do then I highly recommend you check out the DrainWig for yourself and save yourself some time and money.

For $5 off of DrainWig – enter in the promo code box at check out the code “FIZZ5

We really like Gorton's in our household.  We especially love these grilled fillets.  I love that with just one fillet you get 12g of protein!!  They are also less than 100 calories.  These are great for helping give your body the nutrition and healthy fats you need without all the excess junk.  We have really enjoyed just eating them plain with a side dish or incorporating them into a recipe.  These fillets were the salmon grilled fillets.  They are packed with flavor.  My husband who is a body builder likes to eat stuff like this after his workout.  Tonight we had it with some simple herb spaghetti noodles just sprinkled with a little extra virgin olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, Greek seasoning, and Italian seasoning.   Gorton's grilled and baked fish products are some of our favorite quick healthy go to options for our healthy meals.
