Christmas is coming!

20141218_162952

Christmas is less than a week away! I’m extremely excited, I’ve set up the tree, bought some gifts, and I’m totally in the holiday spirit! I’ve always wanted personalized wrapping paper so I’m extremely happy that Collage.com has sent me some to review.

20141218_163145

I was able to design it myself and it was extremely easy! I was able to have as many as 200 photos, but I chose to keep it simple and just use 3 different pictures which show off my family. Having a new baby this year was a wonderful time to showcase our two boys and daughter as well as our two dogs. The wrapping paper was of quality paper and having the 6ft one was enough to wrap several presents.

They were also kind enough to send me this double sided ornament which is extremely pretty and reflective. It is 3×2 inches and is absolutely gorgeous and made of high quality material. It is not flimsy! It even came with a super cute red tie to hang it from our tree.

20141218_17152820141218_171522

The last item I received was an 11×14 inch aluminum picture. I also could have added more photos, but I’ve been wanting a picture of just my family for a while. I love how great the photo turned out. It looks identical to the picture I sent them. I love how I was even able to choose a border.

I would highly recommend purchasing from collage.com as their items always look great and ship fast! They have graciously allowed me to host a giveaway. I will have 3 winners from the US and each winner will receive one of the items posted above.

Holiday Ready: 5 Top Tips For Looking Fabulous Whatever Your Destination

Whether we are jetting off for some winter sun or preparing for a family summer holiday, we spend weeks making sure we look our best when we finally get to our holiday destination. To make sure you don’t miss anything, here are my top tips for getting holiday ready.

  • Get Healthy

No one wants to be walking around a foreign city feeling big and awkward, or hanging out on the beach envying other people figures (admittedly, we’ll do that anyway). In the run up to your holiday, watch what you eat and try to get some exercise. Not only will this make you feel better when you get there, it will also let you enjoy your holiday more.

Plane travel, jet lag and a lack of sleep can have a real impact on your body, it could leave you feeling groggy and ruin the first few days of your holiday. The circulating air on the plane is also full of everyone else’s bugs. Making sure your body is in tip top fighting condition means you’re not likely to be suffering from a cold on the beach or a cough in Rome. A diet rich in fruit and vegetables in the run up to your holiday is also a fantastic way to protect your skin from sunburn. The antioxidants in these healthy foods (you also get them in chocolate, just FYI) help to bolster your body’s natural defence against UV rays. Of course, it’s still not as good as sun cream, and no one want’s to look like a lobster, so remember to pack the factor 30.

  • Look Good

Let’s face it ladies, this is the one we all focus on before we travel. It is also the most time consuming and tedious of the preparation tasks. We remove hair, buff, moisturise, pluck and preen our way to perfection. At least it is worth it once we land in exotic climes.

There’s something about getting away from all the people that you know and the places you regularly see. On a holiday we reinvent ourselves for a week or two. We dress up every night for dinner, wander along foreign marinas and dabble at any number of new languages. Every night is a date night, so make sure you have at least one or two new outfits to wear.

Opt for something you wouldn’t normally or a colour that needs a tan to carry it off. Indulge yourself (after all, you are on holiday) and surprise your partner. If you are away with the kids, book a babysitter and make sure you get one night to yourselves. Holiday’s are about taking a break from the norm, and they can be a fantastic way to strengthen your relationship away from the strains of everyday life. So make sure you look your best.

  • Pack Sensibly

Whether you’re packing for the kids or for a romantic getaway, the principle are the same. Consider the weather, the activities you’re likely to be doing and the length of your stay. Looking fabulous is all about being prepared (and not having to lug a ridiculous amount of suitcases around with you!).

Shoe’s take up the most amount of space so be smart here. A pair of flip flops, nude courts and some flats for walking should be all you need. An outfit for every night is a necessity, but you can reuse daytime outfits, a skirt, a couple of pairs of shorts, some strap tops and a few blouses can literally last you ages. Evening wear is more complicated since you don’t know what sorts of places you are likely to be visiting. Summer dresses that can be dressed up or down with jewellery are a fantastic option, whilst a cover up and trousers mean you will be prepared if the evenings turn out to be chilly.

Check to see if the hotel has a hair dryer. In humid climes this is an essential to looking and staying fabulous but it will take up space in your luggage. Work out which beauty products you absolutely can’t do without but don’t load your suitcase with everything.

If you are packing for the kids, it’s a tad more problematic and will undoubtedly mean you have to leave some of your essentials behind to accommodate theirs. An outfit a day is a necessity – ice cream stains are going to happen and you don’t want to have to spend your holiday washing clothes. The evening outfits are the place to save space when it comes to the kids. They’ll only wear them for a few hours and aren’t likely to complain at wearing the same thing twice in one week.

  • Plan Ahead

We all know spontaneity has spelt disaster for many a fabulous look – you spend hours getting your hair just right and he turns up to pick you up on a motorbike. Less than ideal. It doesn’t hurt to do a little planning. If you know you’re going to be riding camels through the desert you can pack accordingly (and resign yourself to looking less than fabulous that day). If you’re likely to be jet skiing or learning to surf, you can make sure you pack some waterproof mascara. No one want to arrive at the beach looking fabulous only to be coaxed onto the banana ride and left feeling like a bedraggled mess the rest of the day.

It is also worth taking the time to do some research. What’s the weather doing this time of year? What’s the humidity like? If your hair is likely to frizz out in these conditions, you can plan ahead and pack some serum to tame it. There’s nothing worse than trying to fight it into some semblance of order and knowing you have the perfect solution sitting at home on your dressing table.1DMBn0TJp6OFa-l2R5HG77WJMc_BJXOiZ_c3KXiYWLxVLJvAUcEl5I3N7-iTqasxCTIDxWmuBhq50NtLDYeHpuLZbcHJc8BLIacQZayMLnYcrRSqX633S6rkcgg=s320

  • Be Selective

Remember, no matter how hard you try, there will inevitably be times on your holiday when you look less than fabulous. That time you fell asleep by the pool with your mouth open or the incident with the spaghetti at the restaurant are all going to get captured by loving friends. Make make sure you have your social media settings on high and can be selective about what everyone at home sees. Just because you occasionally looked less than fabulous, doesn’t mean everyone needs to about it.

When Should You Let Your Kids Have Piercings?

Most parents dread the time when their kids start to rebel, or even just begin making big decisions independently of their parents. But there are many decisions that you need to be involved in, whether your kids want you to be or not. Often these decisions involve what your children want to do with their bodies. Although you might not want to make them feel like you are in control of their bodies, there are some things that you could feel aren’t age-appropriate for many kids. When should you allow your daughter to wear makeup or shave her legs? Is it ok to tell your son to change because you don’t like what he’s wearing? And at what
age is it appropriate for your kids to have piercings?

 PP0V-_xWy_vzDiH72DxUrMPPBGeUaJ03n9JdVGAXVqQ9RGkGWnd1fHGPdzXFbOLugVnfIrYVV0aYREI6RLcm2c6BJUXnYKrKpUmeDjKJ2v0zpD2oaqSAPFpriH8=s320

Carissa Rogers

Piercings can be a contentious issue among children and parents. You might see no problem with your kids having parts of their body pierced when they’re old enough, whether it’s their ears or lip. But the question is when is the right age? Many parents may decide that there are different ages for different piercings. Pierced ears, for example, are common in younger children. But making the decision of when piercings are appropriate can be hard. Try some of these tips to help you make your own decision.

What Does the Law Say?

Before thinking about anything else, you need to know what the law says in your local area. It may be different for different types of piercing. For example, children may be able to have their ears pierced much earlier than they can have a navelpiercing or tongue piercing. It could be that there are different age requirements depending on whether your child has your permission. Make sure you check what is and isn’t legal before you make your decision. As well as the law, check with your child’s school to find out their policy on piercings.

Talk to Other Parents

Parents will have a broad range of opinions on body piercings. In many cultures, it’s common to pierce a child’s ear or ears when they’re just a baby, but other people prefer to wait until they can decide for themselves. You won’t hear just one opinion when you talk to other parents, but doing so can help you nonetheless. Listening to what other people think can help you to shape your opinion, but you don’t necessarily have to follow the crowd.

When is Your Child Ready?

Trying to decide on a hypothetical appropriate age is one thing, but it’s also important that your child is ready for such a big decision. Body modifications are a big deal, even if piercings can be removed. Not all piercings will heal completely when removed, so it’s important that your child knows what they’re doing. It’s best to give it some time if they ask for a piercing, just to make sure they’re serious, and ensure they know what the piercing involves. You could also ask them to pay for it to give them a goal and sense of responsibility.

Keep your car cool with Kulcar

Do you ever love a product so much that you always want to brag about how great it is? Well one of those products for me is the Kulcar. In fact, I decided to re-post the review for you guys just in case any of you missed it! So here you go:

When I was younger and had an older car my air conditioning didn’t work. I always wished that I had a solar powered fan to keep my car cool while I wasn’t in it so that it wasn’t so bad when I did get into it. Now we have a working AC but since our car is black with tinted windows, it gets really hot throughout the day. Sure once it cools down it stays cool, but I don’t like turning on the car and leave it running just to be able to get the girls in the car. I was so excited when I got the Kulcar!

Kulcar

So what is Kulcar? It is a Turbo powered fan that is placed above the window in your car that is solar powered. When in the sun the fans turn on to cool your car down without killing your battery or you needing to be there to turn it on. It is decently quiet and is easy to install.

DSC03403

The Kulcar comes with weather striping for you window that not only fits perfectly around the device, but also around you window. For our car, installation was a little more difficult because as you can see above, our back window are angled. After some cutting and sizing we had it installed in no time. It only took about 10 minutes to install even with cutting the strips to size. I also couldn’t believe how great it looked on our car!

DSC03401DSC03400Kulcar Review

Like I said earlier, our car gets really hot during the day. So if we want to take the girls anywhere we have to turn the car on, open the windows and let the AC run. I hate doing this for many reasons! One, I don’t like leaving my car on without me in it and of course I have to go back inside to get the girls after it has cooled down so this doesn’t really work for me. Two, I don’t like wasting gas. Three, it takes a lot longer then it should to cool down. With the Kulcar you can just leave it on and it will run when the sun is shining on your car and keep it cool and ready for you to get in.

The only thing I would suggest when using the Kulcar is that if you do have air conditioning in your car, I would push the solar panel down while driving so that it doesn’t turn on and off every two seconds. Other than that this device is easy to use and really comes in handy when it’s hot! I can’t wait until the weather is warmer to be able to really test this thing out!

I think that the Kulcar not only is a great product for the family, but that it would make a great gift. I mean really, who doesn’t want a cool car? Also it is a great idea for families with pets, so that they are safe in the car as well!

You can find Kulcar on their website here, or on Amazon here.

My Favourite ‘Dress to Impress’ Tips

There are lots of occasions when you might need to dress to impress. You might need to dress to impress for an interview, or you might be going on a date. Whatever the occasion, making an effort is so important. These are my favourite tips!

Wear Clothes That Suit Your Shape

If you don’t know your body shape, you should find out what it is, quick. Wearing clothes that suit your shape is essential if you want to look great at all times. If you have an hourglass figure, for example, clothes that pull you in at the waist will look very flattering on you. If you see yourself as an apple shape, you’ll want to avoid wearing baggy clothes as they can make you look bigger. Do your research first!

Get Inspiration

If you’re stuck for inspiration, you don’t need to suffer in silence. There are lots of ways you can find clothes that you love. Take a look on sites like Pinterest, Instagram, and Lookbook to start with, recommend JustFab.

Only Wear Clothes You Love

Don’t wear clothes just because somebody says you should. Don’t wear clothes just because somebody else likes them either. You need to wear clothes because you love them, and that’s that! If you make sure the clothes you’re wearing are items you really like, you’ll always look confident and beautiful.

Always Accessorise

Don’t forget to accessorise, even if you’re only going to wear a nice watch. Never leave the house without your accessories! Some outfits might call for a necklace, others might call for a pair of statement earrings. My favourite jewellery is a nice watch with a statement ring. It’s a combo that goes with everything.

Wear Colours to Suit Your Colouring

Wearing colours is great, but you need to make sure they suit your colouring. What colours suit your skin tone? Take your hair and eyes into account too and you should find colours that look great on you.

Wear Shaping Underwear

Shaping underwear is great for creating curves and pulling you in in all of the right places. No matter what you’re wearing, shaping underwear can help you to look even better than before. Try it once, and you’ll be hooked! You can even find shaping underwear that gives you a Kardashian style bum lift. Who needs surgery?!

Don’t Forget Your Beauty Treatments

Accessorising and dressing to impress is all well and good, but don’t forget your beauty treatments. Make sure your nails and hair are up to scratch too. You can’t expect to impress anybody if your nails are all odd shapes and chipped! You don’t even have to pay for these; learn how to do it yourself. It’ll be worth it in the long run.

Use these tips when it’s time to dress to impress and you’ll always look effortlessly put together. Bear in mind that less is more and you want to enhance your beauty, not mask it with makeup and sparkly jewellery. See you next time!

Top 5 Tips For Feeling Fabulous

As we rapidly approach the holiday season again, we know there will be plenty of parties and celebrations. We will have to suffer the boss and colleagues who hate us at the office party, and put up with sister-in-law at the family get together. No wonder so many people are miserable at this time of year!

It doesn’t help that year on year we are looking and feeling older. Worse still, everybody seems to think it’s ok to comment on it and make us feel even worse! It is impossible to find a genuine smile to give and all you can think to say is bah humbug.

Fear not! We have the top 5 tips for feeling fabulous this season. Sit back with a bar of choc and your feet up.

  1. Buy that fabby dress: So we are starting with a little retail therapy, but sometimes it’s effective. If you find a dress that looks good on you, buy it. How many times a year does that happen. Usually when we’ve squeezed into something we turn around and see it accentuates the size of our bottoms to silly proportions. If it fits well and looks good, then it was meant to be.d1mRgtAu2eZhgv69kLlgU1HGpFXA5inribZBAsuYQr8wGvWa6rrQbh0kLBZTsZZYjOh858PbbmEh9-psQNUrKVR8kYLEkYUkK92bO4XrNj3FkH524N02WW00cdY=s320Picture courtesy of Flickr
  2. Department store makeover: If you pick quieter times, you can usually walk up to your favourite brand counter and try out everything they’ve got. The staff on the counter will talk you through your beauty routine and then cleanse and tone your skin for you. They’ll color match your skin and paint you up a treat. It’s all free because they’re promoting the products they’re using on you. Choose to buy or don’t. Then walk out of the store feeling fabulous!
  3. Facelift: This isn’t for the faint-hearted. Sometimes we just have to get rid of those deep wrinkles to stop the frowning that causes them! Find a surgeon like Dr. Robert W. Kessler, MD, FACS or someone local to you to speak about the implications of face lifts. Surgery is not an overnight fix. For a start, it may take up to two weeks for you to be well enough to venture out again. But it could well be the solution for what’s bothering you long term.
  4. Seriously intense gym workout: It is true that intense exercise for a minimum of 12 minutes will release all those happy hormones and endorphins. You’ll also feel like you have really earned that chocolate bar too! If you regularly feel a little blue, combat it with a half hour in the gym. Big brand gyms also have pools and spas included in the membership, so spend your next half hour soaking up the bubbles for a real ‘feel better’ treat.
  5. Karaoke: There is nothing quite like blasting out your favorite cheesy song through an amp in front of complete strangers who will cheer you on no matter how off key you are. Let it all hang out and sing your woes away. The adrenaline of public performance and the breathing techniques used for singing are amazing antidotes for bluesy moods.

Finishing off an Outfit: Dos and Don’ts

Regardless of what you wear, it’s the finishing touches of an outfit that really helps it to stand out and make a statement. Without the right accessories and touches, and outfit can look unfinished and boring. The following tips will help you to finish off your outfit perfectly:0MYkOFYn5YcRKQbisExFDBlVHfqMcaNCF8HDLmakYP0L3Q1bJPeNutaqxXtDUoXoVYyn0gMMPSSqhUVdD7fn4FoV4N7oKbXeTV9QpUp9fJ0p0BR3RUDJtg3C3-k=s320

Do Clash Your Accessories With Your Outfit

By clashing your accessories with your outfit rather than matching them, you can make a much bigger impact than you would normally. They’ll stand out, and you can really balance out an outfit this way. For example, you could clash a girly outfit with grunge accessories, and vice versa. I like mixing patterns, textures, and materials for the best clashed look.

Don’t Wear Too Many Accessories at Once

The rule is, and has always been, don’t wear too many accessories at once. You’ll look like a jewellery stand or something equally as ridiculous. A handful of rings, armful of bracelets, necklaces, and earrings will more than likely look like you’re trying too hard. You should always take off the last thing you put on if you have too many accessories on.

Do Create a Focal Point With One of Your Accessories

What is your favourite accessory out of them all? Create a focal point with this accessory by playing it up. This could be your favourite bag from Guess, for instance. If you plan on wearing other accessories, make them delicate so that this accessory really stands out. I find you can do this best with a bag, necklace or ring.

Don’t Knock the Look off Balance

You can create an unbalanced look if you wear too many heavy items and not enough delicate items. Play around with combinations to try to balance out your accessories. You should always mix different shapes and sizes, but too much of one thing can make your look lose its edge.

Do Look on Pinterest for Inspiration

Pinterest is full of amazing inspo if you’re stuck on where to take your look. You can get ideas for ring combinations, outfits, and so much more. It’s my favourite app! If you’re ever stuck, just type your query into Pinterest and something is bound to pop up.

Don’t Worry About What Other People Think

If you like something, wear it. Don’t worry about what anybody else thinks. Everybody has different opinions, and the world would be boring if everybody was the same. If you can pull a look off with confidence, you’ll win every time.

Do Spend Time on Your Hair and Makeup Too

Your makeup and hair are just as much your accessories as anything else. Make sure they match the look you’re trying to create. Practice different hairstyles and makeup styles so you have a few you can pull out the bag at a moment’s notice.

Use these dos and dont’s to get your look on point every single time. Expressing our personalities through our style is so much fun, so ditch your boring accessories and makeup looks and start experimenting today!

The Best Ways to Fix Balding or Thinning Hair

VihAEoWnSmQEX1n_FTFfzwFy5lGDGduS1ItKnsASWLnZlueZPFceXAVbKdjYUq8C-UFb6tzCtZaVxcqjUYH4xeJ7rf413hYDvCZ3x1EQGK74Mx7lZa9nvciTHnA=s320Thanks to Eve for the photo

Balding and thinning hair can happen to anyone although it is more common for men to go bald. However, although women usually aren’t walking around with big bald patches, it’s not uncommon for their hair to thin or for them to have bald spots. Whether you’re a man going bald or a woman whose hair is thinning, it’s difficult to find ways to fix it or stop it in its tracks. There are lots of things that claim to be able to stop balding and thinning, but the truth is that it’s often in your genes. However, even though you can’t change your genes, you can try to keep your hair healthy and put off or reduce your hair diminishing. And with the advance of certain surgeries and technology, there are ways you can fix bald patches or encourage hair growth.

Stay Healthy

Your lifestyle and health could affect the thickness of your hair. There could be an underlying cause, including things like hormones and medication. If your hair is thinning or you’re discovering bald patches, there are some things you should check to see if you can fix it with a change to your lifestyle. Firstly, visit your doctor to see if there might be  an underlying cause that you can treat. If hormones are causing your hair thinning, for example if you’re pregnant, you can help to look after your hair by handling it gently and perhaps changing your hairstyle. Hair loss could also be caused by a medical condition, such as a thyroid problem, or it could be a side-effect of a medication. Again, your doctor can help you with these. Stress can cause hair loss too, so if none of the other causes are the culprit, make sure you’re getting enough down-time.

Hair Transplants

If male pattern or female pattern baldness is causing your hair loss, then the cause is, unfortunately, your genes. You can’t change your genes, but you can fix your baldness. One option is to have hair transplantation in Miami. Both men and women can have transplants and hair replacements. Although it involves surgery, it’s a very clever operation. The surgeon removes hair from one part of your body, known as the donor site, to another part of your body. Usually, hair from a part of your head that balding hasn’t affected is transplanted onto bald spots to give you a natural and full head of hair.

Nourish Your Hair

If you can’t afford a hair transplantation, you can try to boost the growth of your hair in several ways. Firstly, use gentle products on your hair, so that it isn’t discouraged from growing by harsh chemicals. Find a shampoo that doesn’t contain alcohol or sulphates and conditioner with no silicones. Natural ingredients are best, so look in health stores for natural products. You can also be kind to your hair by combing it, instead of brushing and avoiding hair dryers and other products that apply heat to your hair. You could also consider a hair regrowth treatment, such as Rogaine.

Hair Repair Tips That Really Work

If your hair is feeling a little worse for wear, you should take the steps to repair it before it’s too late. You don’t want your hair to end up a big, flyaway, brittle mess. The following hair repair tips have been proven to really work, so you can transform your locks into smooth, healthy tresses once again:EPRmeVgyvhl1jYBVHovNh6C0KH64XtduhEwg6W0bARDEgm6Ho10D5zPx7auUcFiRCPwIURxeXhQPnrb6r6DvSYsILZ13EJL6TZ3UdmkzwxBTA3YxCO4WC-dzCmU=s320

Always Use Heat Protecting Spray

Before using any heated appliance on your hair, including a hair dryer, make sure you spray on a heat protecting spray liberally. Concentrate on the ends of your hair especially. This will help to stop it from getting too damaged as you style it. Ideally, you won’t use heated appliances that often. If you must use them, follow these instructions to keep it in the best condition.

Smooth on Coconut Oil as a Mask

Coconut oil is a beauty product that has many benefits, but I love using is as a hair mask. All you need to do is smooth it on, concentrating on the ends of your hair again, and then wash off in an hour or two. You could even leave it in overnight. When you wash it out, only use a shampoo. If you use a conditioner your hair will become weighed down and greasy. You should notice a huge difference after using this.

Use Argan Oil After Washing

Argan oil is a great product to have in your beauty arsenal. There are many LT Organics Argan Oil benefits, but I especially like to smooth a blob or two on my hair after washing it. This helps to give it shine and smooth out any frizz.

Make Your Own Mask

Instead of spending a fortune on hair masks from the salon, you can make your own out of ingredients you’ve probably already got at home. Mayonnaise, believe it or not, is supposed to be a wonder product for hair. Avocado is said to be amazing too.

Sleep on a Silk Pillowcase

Silk pillowcases keep your hair smooth during the night. You may not know it, but you probably toss and turn an awful lot as you sleep. By sleeping on a silk pillowcase, you minimise damage to your hair. You’ll also find that it’s much easier to style afterwards.

Have Your Hair Cut Regularly

Even if you’re trying to grow your hair, make sure you have it cut regularly to get rid of dead ends weighing it down and spoiling your look. There’s no point trying to hold on to your dead ends, so bite the bullet and have them chopped off. Even if you go for a regular trim, it’s better than nothing.

If you’re sick of the condition of your hair, having a lot cut off will make it feel brand new. It’ll look thicker, healthier, and you’ll find it easier to style.

Frizzy, split hair is never a good look. Use these tips to prevent and repair damage and you’ll love the results. Do you have any tips? Leave a comment!
