-Simmons Signature Memphis Dry Rub Wings-
These wings taste so good !!!
The 5lb bag includes 2 packets of Memphis BBQ Dry Rub and lots of frozen fully cooked chicken wings. After baking in the oven, add the BBQ Dry Rub in moderation, taste test along the way (it may be too spicy for some). The fairly sized wings can also be microwaved.
I didn’t use the BBQ Dry Rub packets because I think the wings were flavorful enough without it.
-Essie Nail Polish #890 Jump In My Jumpsuit-
Well, I finally got my hands on a bottle of that good ol’ Essie.
I’ve been wanting to try the Essie brand for awhile but couldn’t see paying $8-11 for such a little bottle. I found the same size bottle at a TJMaxx on an after holiday clearance sale priced at $2. The shade, a deep red, was called #890 Jump In My Jumpsuit. So I jumped at the opportunity to try it out. I liked it because it had great coverage and it glided on evenly leaving a smooth finish. Since it’s hard to polish with the hand I don’t write with, when I noticed there were no streaks on my nails, I was very pleased. My first thought was, “Wow I see why it’s so expensive!”
The only thing I would do differently is try a different shade. I didn’t like the way the deep red looked on my nails. Well actually, my nails looked fine. I didn’t like the way it made my hands look overall. I would prefer a softer shade. But that’s nothing against the quality of the product. Very good product. I would purchase again (on sale).
-Five Below & Fresh Paint Nail Polish –
At FiveBelow, everything is either 5.00 or below. There are tons of stylish Tshirts to choose from and a wide variety of candies for the sugar obsessed. They have plenty of cosmetics, movies and toys as well. FiveBelow is a fun combination of Dollar Tree, Party City and a little bit of Toys R Us all in one store. The locations I’ve visited have not been very big stores but there is lots of room to move around, all have been very neat and the items are easy to find.
Fresh Paint Nail Polish is a brand I tried on in a FiveBelow store. It dries very quickly, has nice shine and covers very well with the first application. A second coat may be desired but not really needed. I didn’t see a lot of color options by the Fresh Paint brand that I really liked but there were a few. That would be the only bad thing about it but other than that I was very pleased with this product.

-L.A. Colors Color Craze Gel Nail Polish-
I like the L.A Colors Color Craze brand. I usually purchase mine at the Dollar Tree. I really don’t see a difference between the regular nail polish and the Gel nail polish. I applied L.A Color Craze in the shade BEDAZZLED. It lasted a few days before I needed a “touch-up”. And even then I could pretty much apply to the chipped area without having to do the entire nail over. Even coverage was easy to obtain and it dries really fast.
My nails did have a nice shine, but a coat of clear polish over them didn’t hurt.
I will purchase again and highly recommend.
-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.
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.
After 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.

-Vo5 Crystal Clear 14 hr Hold Hair Spray-
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.
