Add Some Fun to Your Hair With Streekers-Review

**I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**


You all have heard or tried the new Hair Chalk trend, I'm sure. I have, too, yet I'm not a huge fan. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a really cool concept but I'm not a fan of how it leaves my hair feeling dry, flaky, and clumpy, plus I hate putting hair spray in my hair for sealing. When I was given the opportunity to try Streekers, the new temporary vibrant colored highlights, I was a bit sceptical. However, when I first opened the box and saw that it was more of a liquid and the colors were extremely bright, I started to get a little excited. 


I first tested Streekers out on my daughter (she loves when I do her hair). Her hair was a little damp but I decided to give it a go anyway. It was very easy to apply, the color went on smooth and showed up great but the real test was how it would feel in her hair after it had dried. Once her hair was dry I combed it out and it did not feel dry or clumpy at all, not at all like hair chalk (the pics above are before brushing). The color looked pretty awesome as well! I tried it in my hair next and got the same results, LOVE!
Streekers retail for about $11.95 a bottle and can be purchased at http://www.streekers.comwww.ulta.com, or in Ulta stores. The colors available are red, blue, pink, ultra violet, green, purple, orange, and yellow. Application is super easy and the color washes right out( bleached blonde hair may take 2-3 washes). Streekers shades work best on blonde hair or blonde highlights but will show up as subtle highlights in darker hair. 
I would reccomend Streekers over hair chalk anyday! They're super fun and would be great for all the upcoming summer concerts and parties. Connect with Streekers on Facebook and Twitter for great tips and awesome giveaways!

Get Dad the Perfect Gift for Father's Day; a Fishing License! Takemefishing.org

Want to get Dad the perfect gift this Father's Day? How about a Fishing License? Takemefishing.org has everything you need to know about fishing licenses for anywhere in the United States including prices and regulations. You can also find fishing reports, the Fishopedia, recipes, information about where to fish, information about the different types of fishing, tips for taking your children fishing, where to buy the best fishing supplies, boating information, and much, much more.  Takemefishing.org also offers a fishing license ‘coupon’ that kids can cut out and put in a card for dad! For a direct link to view and print the 'coupon', please click here

WHY A DAY ON THE WATER IS THE BEST GIFT 
  • An online survey conducted in April 2013 by Echo Research found that family outings are the top type of Father's Day gift – over sports tickets and power tools.
  • Getting out on the water – either on land or by boat – is affordable and accessible. In fact, 90% of Americans live within one-hour of navigable water.
  • Fishing provides a simple way to spend quality time with family, and if you have a boat, a fun way to fully enjoy the luxury of being out in open water.
  • A license is something moms can help their children give.
  • Start a family tradition – fishing is something you can pass down from generation to generation. 
PURCHASING A LICENSE
  • Visit: http://www.takemefishing.org/fishing/license and choose the state you live in.
  • There you can find quick links to your state fish and wildlife agency license page and you can purchase your fishing licenseright there online.
  • Fishing license prices vary by state, as do the type of fishing license available, however, they are incredibly affordable. For example, a statewide freshwater fishing license in Virginia is just $23 and in Ohio just $19.
  • Depending on the state you live in, your children may not require a license. Information such as this, as well as state-by-state regulations, and fishing reports are available at TakeMeFishing.org.

DaddyScrubs Giveaway!!!

**I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**



Recently I had the chance to check out DaddyScrubs which is an online store geared to new, expectant, or veteran daddies. Their products include delivery room scrubs, ties, mugs, hoodies, and so much more! We got to check out a pair of their popular delivery room scrubs for review. My fiance' doesn't get excited about much but when he saw the scrubs, he was extremely excited to gift them to someone. 

DaddyScrubs are just like regular work scrubs... super comfortable, but they seem to be a little thicker than some brands. They are 65/35 Poly Cotton and machine washable. DaddyScrubs come in two different styles (edgy and classic), range in sizes from small to 5XL (edgy in navy for 3XL-5XL), and come in 3 different colors. You can purchase just the scrub set or purchase them in a gift set. 

We didn't get a chance to get pictures of our expectant father in his scrubs yet, but when he received them at a recent baby shower, they were a huge hit! Most people have never heard of DaddyScrubs before so when they were held up for everyone to see, you could hear the excitement in the room. It was probably the best baby shower gift there! I can't wait for pictures!




If you have any future father's in your life, I would highly recommend getting them something from DaddyScrubs. Who says the moms should have all the fun? I think Daddy would appreciate a nice gift as well! Check out DaddyScrubs on Facebook and Twitter for updates and enter below for your very own chance to win a pair of DaddyScrubs!

Enter to Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card! OPEN WORLDWIDE!!!!

Life has been anything but normal lately, in fact it's been nothing short of hectic! I went back to work in the service industry, my daughter turned 2 years old (help me), I got an amazing new job (big girl panties are on now!), turned 30 years old, my grandfather (the man who raised me and who is my best friend) was diagnosed with Cancer, we almost lost one of our dogs to a deadly infection (I'll explain that later), and my fiance' and I are finally going to take the plunge and get married! Holy crap, reading all that back just made me tired!

Anyway, I really wanted to get back into blogging before my one year blogiversary, so to jump start this I thought we'd celebrate all the good that has happened lately. Maybe a giveaway for all my loyal readers that have stuck around and for any new ones that would like to join in on the fun?! Giveaway will be for a $25 Gift Card to Amazon (or somewhere else if you choose) and will be open Worldwide! If I get enough entries, I might just add another winner so share, share, share! The giveaway will close on June 14th, just in time for Father's Day!

Welcome back everyone and I sure hope you stick around!
