Tom's of Maine Wicked Cool

If your kids are anything like mine it is a battle to get them to brush their teeth. It's like WWIII in my house twice a day to get them to do their teeth brushing. So I was thrilled and nervous when I got the invitation from Smiley360 to try out a new kid friendly toothpaste from Tom's of Maine.

Tom's of Maine Wicked Cool is an all-natural toothpaste. It is made with kids ages 8-12 in mind (but is safe for kids as young as 2). It has a nice minty taste that helps to freshen breath like adult toothpaste minus the "hot" taste adult toothpaste has. It fights cavities, strengthens enamel and freshens breath all while having no artificial colors, preservatives, flavors or sweeteners. 

My daughter is the one who is a pain to find toothpaste for. She hates the bubblegum taste of kid toothpaste, but finds adult toothpaste to "hot" or "spicy". As you can see from the above picture she LOVED Tom's of Maine Wicked Cool! 

Even my son said "wow mom that taste good!"

Tom's of Maine has been come a staple in our medicine cabinet. Now getting my kids to brush is no longer a hassle. They just do it!

Seduced by Power

Another fabulous book by Kimberly Kinrade. The last book in Rose's fight for freedom, love and family. Rose's power is coming increasingly stronger and stronger, she is beginning to fear for Derek's safety around her. And she is right. She is a danger to him now that his powers are decreasing after the rose bush is stolen by Rainbow. So when Derek is taken by Rose's power she has no choice to go into the underworld after him and his brother.

Rose risks her life for love and her new family. And just when you think you know how the story is going to end it takes another turn. Derek risks his life to rescue Rose from the demon and his body it taken my the head demon himself.

The story is an ongoing battle of good vs. evil. Of course it ends with good winning over all else.

Kinrade is a fantastic author. I look forward to reading more books by her.

**I received the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Garnire Fructis Hydra Recharge

I admit it. I am a picky shampoo person. I have very weird hair (atleast in my opinion). It is both dry and oily. It has a mind of it's own 90% of the time. It has natural wave, and gets frizzy with high humidity. In short, IT'S A NIGHTMARE! So I tend to be very opinionated about shampoos and conditioners. If I find one I like I stick with it (until it stops doing it's job....does this happen to anyone else....shampoo immunity LOL) Until recently I was stuck on Tressemee (which we all know is expensive), I love it. It was by far my favorite shampoo/conditioner EVER. That was until I got choosen to try the new Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge system by Bzzagent.

I have used Garnier products in the past and have liked them a lot.  I have to say up till I tried the Hydra Recharge system my favorite thing about Garnier products was the way they smelled. fruity and good. After just 2 days I could already tell the difference in my hair. It was lighter, healthier and just plain felt good. When you use all 3 of the product s (shampoo/condition/treatment together it makes a huge difference. There have been days when I just used the shampoo and conditioner and while my hair still felt great it tended to get frizzier faster then on the days I used the treatment too.

Even my daughter has decided she likes the Garnier better then the Tressemee. I plan on using the Hydra Recharge system for a long time to come. It is not a staple in my shower :)
