Back to School with Andrea’s Beau Headband Giveaway

My daughter is obsessed with the headbands from Andrea’s Beau, we work with this company about two times a year for headbands and this time around my daughter actually gave some pretty awesome feedback that I can share with you all, besides just about the styles and gorgeous designs. When the headbands arrived, my daughter was telling me that she loves Andrea’s Beau headbands because, unlike other headbands, these never hurt behind her ears. Usually any other brand of headband Ki has tried on, never fit right, eventually the ends would dig in behind her ears causing headaches, but not […]

All In Due Time, They Do Sometimes Need You When they Get Bigger #tweens

I am often found sighing in disbelief at how big my daughter is now, she is into those tween years and she no longer thinks the hairstyles I used to do in her hair are cool. Apparently “cute” is no longer the proper term to refer to a hairstyle either. The cuter it is, the worse of an idea it is; at least according to my tween daughter. It amazes me at how fast she has grown, both in height and in intelligence. This girl is beyond her years in comprehension and most times I wonder if she is one […]

MicroTouch ONE Review #FuelMyBlog #spon #IDVproducts

MicroTouch ONE is a product that was sent to me for review and one would have thought I brought home a million pieces of chocolate when I saw my fiance’s face light up. MicroTouch ONE is a new version of the timeless classic safety razor and it’s a razor that reminded my fiance of the old days when his father let him use a razor like this from the old days to “practice shaving”. I loved seeing how happy this razor made my fiance and so now I’m sharing the product with you all because it would make a lovely […]

HOW TO French Manicure With Colorful Tip on Tweens #tween #teen #nails

I watched a tutorial on Nails and how to do a french manicure with different color tips, after watching this video tutorial – I went ahead and did this with my own idea based on The Painted Nail tutorial. While my basis of learning how to do what I ultimately did was based on this tutorial, this version I am sharing with you below is my take on the tutorial with a twist of using my own ways. You see, I needed something that was quicker as I have two high energy boys who demand a lot of attention. When […]

Mother and Daughter Homecoming Painted Nails

Homecoming was a couple of weeks ago in my town and with that came my example of trying to show school spirit, because again I will say “a child learns through example of the parent/guardians”. If I don’t get into the spirit of school and show my own school spirit, chances are my children would not either. The best way I figured out how to share school spirit with my daughter on this particular day before she marched in the Homecoming Parade with fellow cheerleaders? Paint our nails. Orange, Black and White are the school colors – home of the […]

The Days of Wearing Makeup and a Tween Daughter

I do not usually wear a whole lot of makeup, never really have that I can recall, while there was this one stage in my mid teenager life that I believe blue eyeshadow made sense on my eyelids to accent my dark brown eyes. Little did I know that color really does not look good, at least in the manner I placed it on, with my deep, dark brown eyes. In present day you will usually find me wearing some full coverage foundation as a means to hide my freckles, dark spots under the eyes from lack of sleep and […]

Picture a Day- Daughter’s Beautiful Hair

My daughter has hair that is super thick and super long. No matter how often you trim or cut her hair, it grows back super fast. One thing about my daughter is that she loves having a style change with her hair but isn’t too fond of cutting a lot of her hair off. Here is a beautiful picture of my daughter’s hair one day a couple weeks ago…

My Daughter and her Hair

Every morning I ask my daughter if I can do her hair. I miss the days when she would happily let me do pig tail braids, one big braid or two french braids in her hair but those days have passed us  in our mother/daughter lives. It is now the season for hair brushed and kept down. All. The Time. And yes at times she does taunt me with that look of “what you gonna do about it?” when I ask if I can do her hair and she replies no then I pout like a little kid. No. Take […]
