Announcing the NEW 10" Circle Extension from LUXHAIR™ HOW™ by Tabatha Coffey, a QVC exclusive

 
Announcing the NEW 10" Circle Extension from LUXHAIR™ HOW™ by Tabatha Coffey, a QVC exclusive. You may have heard of flip in or halo extensions, which are similar, but this is really something special. The Circle Extension gives you an instant hair transformation without clips or any other form of adhesive. A two layer weft of hair is attached to a thin invisible band, which slips around your head to add lush length and natural looking volume in seconds. The hair is revolutionary Keralon ™ Light heat resistant synthetic fiber, which allows you to style with heat tools up to 320° Fahrenheit. Lightweight, easy to apply and clip-free, the Circle Extension is a whole new kind of hair extension. The 10" Circle Extension from LUXHAIR™ HOW™ by Tabatha Coffey retails for $79, available at QVC.com.
TO APPLY
  1. Slip the halo over your head, with the extension at the back of your head.
  2. Position band around the top of your head like a hair band. Use a fine-tailed comb to pull the top strands of your hair over the band to blend in.
  3. Style using a curling iron or flat iron if desired, and you're ready to go!
SPECIAL FEATURES
• Keralon™ Light Heat Resistant Synthetic Hair Fiber - A revolutionary, lightweight hair fiber that feels luxuriously silky and soft, and can be styled with heat tools up to 320° Fahrenheit. It was developed for the HOW™ collection to the exact denier, thickness and weight as natural human hair.
• Double Layer Weft - Two connected wefts of hair provide more coverage, fullness and volume than the single weft found on most hair extensions.
• Invisible Band - Lighter shade band on the light hair colors and darker shade band on the dark hair colors to better blend in with your hair.

Bath Blocks allows kids to have fun in the tub


 
Bath toys are some of the best here in our house. The kids usually take their cars or dolls to the tub so I was excited to get some new toys for the bath that both kids could play with. So we received a set of Bath Blocks for review:
 
 20 pc Coast Guard Set in Reusable Storage Bag picture
 
There are designs on the package that you can do, or you can just make your own design. Which my kids like to create their own and be imaginative. It comes with a big baseboard and they put their other toys on there and play with that alone too. But the cool part is that once the blocks are wet, they will stick to the side of the tub or wall.

I like that the bag doubles as their storage. It's mesh so the toys can adequately dry and not get moldy, that's a really nice feature.  And also the toys are a solid material, so there's no cracks and crevices for water to get stuck in. They're also made from a bacteria and mildew resistant material. Contain no PVC or Phthalates. 
 
The 20 pc Coast Guard set sells for $19.99 which is a great price for a toy that the kids can use in and out of the tub!

You know, this would make a great gift for the kids at Christmas, and right now Just Think Toys is offering a Coast Guard set to one lucky winner! Enter below:

L'Oreal has a vast variety of beauty products to help you look your best!


OMG! Imagine my surprise when I came home to a box full of beauty products by L'Oreal! They are a great brand and I have always enjoyed their eye shadows and mascara. Us girls have had so much fun trying the products and picking our favorites:

 
Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quads: Love the colors in each one plus on the back of the package, it gives you an eye tutorial on how to wear it.
 
Top center is the Eternal Blue (280), Left is Perpetual Nude (230) which is my personal favorite, and the right one is Emerald Conquest (290).

 
Voluminous Butterfly Mascara in Black Brown (869): Love the wand and how much volume it gives to my lashes.
 
Infallible Never Fail Silky Pencil Eyeliner: This is a creamy, smooth eyeliner in some fun colors like Gold and Cobalt Blue. The Infallible eyeliner is smudge-resistant for up to 16hr.


True Match Mineral Powder: First, love that the compact has a sponger applicator and mirror on the bottom. It leaves the skin feeling silky smooth but is too light for me. I am going to look for another shade as I loved the coverage! 


Visible Lift Blur Foundation: Now a makeup that blurs the look of lines, wrinkles and uneven texture while delivering the anti-aging benefits of Visible Lift. For a fresh, smooth youthful finish you'll love. And not a flaw in sight. Lightweight and great coverage. Again a little light, but perfect for my friend.
 
Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream: I love, love this product. You can see in the picture it comes out green but then it will tone to your skin. This product reduces redness and corrects the skin tone to give it a even complexion. I love using this under my foundation for a more flawless appearance.


Visible Lift Blur Blush: Now a blush that blurs dullness with sheer color instantly while delivering the anti-aging benefits of Visible Lift.  Love pink shade (502) A little goes a long way and it last all day.


 Glossy Balm: Playing with color has never looked so good. Glossy Balm gives lips a high dose of pigmented shine, while smoothing and conditioning to keep lips soft and supple for hours on end. Love the smoothness of the balm. Leaves my lips soft and so kissable.
 
Pop Balm: Balm Pop enlivens lips with pure, vibrant color and contains Jojoba and Shea butter to nourish and hydrate for a full 8 hours. The product is sheer but I have been wearing it over the Glossy Balm for a great look.


Extraordinaire Lip Color: Transform lips from ordinary to extraordinary. Color is richer, lip surface is smoother and shine is magnified. Extraordinaire provides the ideal balance of color and care for perfect lips. This is the color Rouge (303) which is a nice red. Think lip stick meets lip gloss!


118 Pink Satin




418 Caring Coral
 

The last thing we received in our package was gorgeous nail colours from the Extraordinaire Gel line. This is a 3 step process which involves the primer and glaze as seen above.


As for the colours, I love them. The purple (703 All Shine On Me) is gorgeous and I am also loving the grey (714 Shinetastic). The 3 step process will give you gel colour in half the time and half the cost!
 
So, head on out to your local Wal-Mart, Walgreens, or beauty retailer and pickup some of these great products today!

L'Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal can help turn back the hands of time


As we age, so does our skin. There are a lot of skin care products on the market that claim to turn back the hands of time but few follow through. Being I am in my 30's, I don't have too many wrinkles but my mother has a few that she complains about. That is why I was excited to receive these 3 pieces from the Age Perfect Cell Renewal line by L'Oreal Paris.


Age Perfect Cell Renewal* Golden Serum speeds surface skin cell renewal, revealing millions of new skin cells each day for fresher, more youthful looking skin.


Age Perfect Cell Renewal Day Cream SPF 15 speeds surface skin cell renewal, revealing millions of new skin cells each day for fresher, more youthful looking skin

 
Age Perfect Cell Renewal Night Cream speeds surface skin cell renewal, revealing millions of new skin cells each day for fresher, more youthful looking skin.
 
My mother has been using these products for about a week and she says her skin already feels a little firmer. I can tell it has more of a youthful appearance as the skin is supple and hydrated. Something that wasn't happening with her other skin care products.
 
If you are looking for a great skin care line for yourself or maybe even your mother, then defiantly pick up the Age Perfect line. You can find it at most mass retailers like Wal-Mart or Walgreens.

L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare will help get your hair back in shape


We all know L'Oreal for their great beauty products, but did you know they can help make your limp hair lively again?
 
Recently, I had the opportunity to review a few of the L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare products and I am loving them!


Do you color your hair? Use a Flat Iron? Then you need the Total Repair Extreme Reconstructing Shampoo and Conditioner. This powerful duo will into your hair fibers to renew extremely damaged and over-processed hair. I love how soft my hair feels after using this duo.

 
When you use a flat iron on your hair, it can cause major damage if you don't use a heatspray. The Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray by L'Oreal gives your hair protection up to 450 degrees. It helps to tame the frizz, gives hair a sleek appearance, and blocks humidity.


If you have color treated hair, like I do, then you will want to use the Color Vibrancy Dual Protect Spray. It is like the Sleek It in that it protects your hair from damage of using flat irons but it also helps to shield color from fade-out.


The L'Oreal Pair Color Vibrancy Instant Shock Treatment is a 60 second deep nourishment treatment that will give you healthy-looking, luminous hair. First, this stuff smells amazing as do all their hair products. The product is a little thinner than regular conditioner so it does not weigh your hair down. I have used this twice and loved the way my hair felt. It was more manageable after washing than just using regular conditioner.


The Sleek It Frizz Vanisher Cream has been a life saver for my mother. She tends to have frizzy hair due to the humidity and always has trouble keeping it in check. Simple to use, apply to damp hair and style as usual. It keeps her fly-away hairs in check for days!

 
The final thing we received was the OleoTherapy Self-Heating Hot Oil Treatment. They come in 4 tubes for easy use or to even take on trips. I put the treatment on after I shampoo and condition my hair. It sits on your hair for 3 minutes and gets rinsed out. It gives the hair a silky, smooth shine without added weight.
 
All of the L'Oreal hair care products we have mentioned can be found at mass retailers like Wal-Mart. Price varies but it is a great line to help get your hair back to the healthy shine that it once was!

The princess seams give a slimming feature while the double buttons help keep my belly from peeking through. This top stretches so there is no uncomfortable pulling while flattering your shape.

Litl Squirts Natural Spring Water


Litl’ Squirts are my kids’ (and my) new favorite kids drink. If you’re a parent, you know there isn’t a whole lot on the market for your kids that is healthy, and not packed with sugars and preservatives. W. Boyle created the Litl’ Squirts line when he became frustrated at the lack of wholesome choices we as parents have to give to our kids. Litl’ Squirts is spring water flavored with 100% juice, and are under 100 calories per serving!

Blueberry Apple is delicious! Myself and my oldest child like Raspberry Apple the best. It’s hard to believe that such a yummy drink is just juice and spring water!

If you’re frustrated by the lack of healthy beverage options for your children like myself, make sure you give Litl’ Squirts a try!

Country Music Candles helps you bring a part of Nashville home


I have a review of Country Music Candle in Pumpkin Spice. I just love this candle! It is the perfect fall candle.

 

We all love Pumpkin Spice! It's one of the best smells of the season! Now you can enjoy this wonderful fragrance in a smaller, 12 oz jar that brings the warm scent of pumpkin and the perfect blend of spices into your home or office.

This season is all about hayrides, pumpkin patches, bonfires, hot chocolate, and snuggling up near the fireplace with a warm blanket surrounded by friends and family.

Whether you enjoy carving pumpkins, or baking that famous pumpkin pie, you will absolutely love this new addition!
 
Before we even opened the package, we could smell the aroma of the pumpkin spice. It leaves the whole house smelling like fall, which is our favorite time of the year. One thing I love about their candles, they are soy candles and have a 100% cotton wick.
 
Also, they have a adorable boot shaped candle that will double as a mug!
 

Take a look at Country Music Candles to get your own and start welcoming in fall today!

Disclosure: I received product(s) for free in exchange for an honest review, which may differ from yours. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I used personally, and believe will be good for my readers.

Soft Claws are the perfect way to keep your four-legged friend from tearing up furniture

SoftClaws for Cats
 
We have a inside cat that is declawed. The one thing I hated was he had to be all bandaged up for over a week due to it. Declawing is painful for the animal but sometimes you don't want them to tear up your furniture with clawing. Now, Soft Claws is a great alternative!
 
 
Soft Claws nail caps for cats are a great alternative to declawing and will help prevent problem scratching. Each Soft Claws Nail Cap Kit includes:
  • 40 nail caps
  • 2 tubes of adhesive
  • 6 applicator tips
Note: The new CLS (Cleat Lock System) Soft Claws are an improved design from the manufacturer. CLS nail caps have "cleats" that help the nail cap adhere to the nail. The result is a better fitting nail cap and longer lasting application.

A small area at the base of each colored CLS nail cap is left clear so you can see part of the cleat system. (When your cat is wearing CLS Soft Claws, you probably won't notice the clear base, since the tip is usually the only part of the nail cap that’s seen once it's fitted onto a claw.)

We received 3 sets of soft claws cleat lock system for cats:
black
pink
fall orange/black

Our new cat is sporting the orange/black set. Mind you, he was none to happy being held and having them put on. So, it took a little while but it is assuring knowing he can not tear up our furniture.

Soft Claws are even made for dogs as well. So head on over to their website and see all the products they have to offer!
