Eco Styler Styling Gel w/ Argan Oil [Review]

-Eco Styler  Moroccan Argan Oil Styling Gel-
The first time I tried the Eco Styler brand It was the one with Olive Oil. It was ok. I liked the way it made my hair shine. But I guess I wasn’t too impressed with it because when I finished using it I never repurchased another jar.
This time I tried the Moroccan Argan Oil version.
It doesn’t make my hair as shiny as I would like but it does provide great hold without making my hair hard or stiff. And I find it works better for me on my straightened hair than it does on my natural hair.ecostyler

The thing I don’t like about it is that it does flake up even when I only apply a small amount.
I’ve been working with it for awhile now and I’ve found rubbing coconut oil on my gelled areas decreases the flakes.

Overall, I think it’s a good product to keep around and use when it gets close to wash day.

Potty Training II: Bring Ya Own Pot…

potty-training-iiAfter finally making progress with  potty training at home, I didn’t realize what a challenge potty training in public would be. But I managed to conquer that issue before it really became one. In the early stages of training, the kids are still learning how to hold it and sometimes they can and sometimes they can’t. And I thought that would be the problem, holding it until we could get to a restroom. But in this particular situation, holding it was not the issue. She had gotten used to using the toilet and her own potty at home but she was afraid to use a different one out in public. So after a few times of having no success with the public training, I decided to start bringing my own potty (“pot” as she calls it).

So now when we go out, I bring the potty top with us. I’m not sure if that is actually what it was created for in the first place, but I do know it works for us. So that’s where we are with that. BRING YA OWN POT….

Also here are a few links to the videos when used to watch in the earlier stages of training.

Alberto VO5 Crystal Clear 14hr Hair Spray [Review]

-Vo5 Crystal Clear 14 hr Hold Hair Spray-
vo5

I stumbled upon this  VO5 Super Hold Hair Spray at a desperate time of need in search of extra hold.

After the first use, I thought I might have been allergic to it. My scalp itched really bad. But I’ve used it a few times since then and didn’t have any problems.

It holds my hair in place  and for an 8.5 oz can, 2.99 is a fairly decent price.I would purchase this product again and I do recommend it if you are looking for a good hold without flaking.

Pillsbury Big Deluxe Mini Hershey’s [Review]

-Pillsbury Big Deluxe Mini Hershey’s Kisses Cookie Dough Review-

One difference between this cookie dough and the rest is the packaging. Because of the difference in packaging, you have to mold and shape the cookies yourself when you scoop the dough out from the bucket/tub (4 LB & 10 OZ).

The chocolate chip sizes are small, medium and extra large which is another difference. The larger chocolate chips in this cookie dough are so large they are called “mini kisses” because they really are little Hershey’s Kisses.

The Big Deluxe cookie dough is overloaded with chocolate chips!!!! With that being said, you have to mold the dough into scoops making sure you don’t have more chocolate chips than cookie dough. Oh, and this dough is also freezable.

I highly recommend this  brand and type it.

Eating Good vs. Good Eating

Is there a difference between eating good and good eating?

When I hear the words eating good, I think of eating healthy. I think of staying away from microwavable foods, fast foods and junk foods. I never really thought to put canned goods in that category. I am mindful of the unhealthy level of sodium in canned goods but that is about as much thought as I put into it.

When I hear the words good eating, I basically narrow that down to any hot meal that is well seasoned and contains some type of meat and vegetable. Whether it is good for you or not is irrelevant.

One night we had Greens&Rice, Smoked Hocks, BBQ Chicken and Corn Bread. (I think it was Smoked Hocks it could have been Turkey, don’t remember)eatin-good-2

When I was informed that I would be cleaning the Greens and cutting the onions, I was a bit shocked. The onions weren’t an issue for me because they don’t bother my eyes. By the time I start to feel a little sting, I’m usually almost finished chopping. But clean the Greens?!!! Now that was a different story. I do rinse the can and wipe the lid before I open it, but I never clean the Greens.

 

I separated the Greens from the stems and washed them and found it to be pretty easy but it was time consuming. Even though I cleaned them quickly, opening a can of Greens and pouring them in the pot would’ve taken a lot less time. I would definetly separate and clean the Greens again if I had to but I honestly don’t recall tasting a major difference between the fresh Greens and the canned ones.

Anyway, that night we ate good. Take a look. And try not to get any drool on your keyboard. LOL. eatin-good-3

 

Quench Micro Water Complex [Review]

-Skincare Product Review-

Radiance Facial Peel  For me it worked instantly. The small acne breakout I had developed cleared up and my skin appeared clearer and brighter after using both the facial peel and moisturizer. Lightly scent and easy to apply evenly.

-Apply for three consecutive days and then once or twice a week. Let sit and rub off with warm water.

Daily Glow Moisturizer Very soft and smooth. It also smells great and is easy to apply evenly.

-Can be used as a primer before applying foundation or as a daily moisturizer.

I am satisfied with the results of the Quench Micro Water Complex products and will continue use. The outside packaging is nice, the bottles are very appealing; slender and  blue with a silver twist and press style top. It’s 1.7oz and a little goes a long way.

If you are interested, the Quench Micro Water Complex products can be purchased at Sam’s Club or  you can go to http://www.quenchbeautyproducts.com for more information.
