@Hair2Wear : The PONY Extension Takes A "MOM PONY" To A Whole New Level

My poor hair!  Over the past several years...after giving birth to four kids and going through a difficult divorce...there is barely anything left of it!  I know that stress & hormone changes cause hair to fall out...but, I would now classify my head full of hair as extremely thin (some would not believe me...because I've always had lots of hair).

(The product in this review was sent free of charge to be reviewed/featured without any other form of compensation on my site!)
So what can I do?  I take vitamins!  I brush it!  I use the right products in it!  But it's still falling out by the hand full!  I could literally cry!  
It's NOT FAIR!

But I don't have to cry anymore, because I can "FAKE IT" better than ever, with a product that takes a "MOM PONY" (you know what I'm taking about...especially if you're a mom) to an all time "HIGH"!  To bad it doesn't magically make us as gorgeous as Christie Brinkley is...but at least our hair can look awesome with little or no effort!
"The Pony" Extension from Hair2Wear is not only super easy to put in...but really can make drastic improvements to the overall look of your hair!  SERIOUSLY!!  Don't believe me?
Watch the video and then look at the pictures...as I play with different styles:
I couldn't be more delighted with this!  
Especially since most mornings...my hair takes a back burner to get the kids ready for their "school day"...I can now, without a doubt say, my hair will look like I spent hours on it...when I've really only spent a couple minutes (if that)!  
I'm a happy girl...no doubt about it!

Hair2Wear sells other products too...wigs and extensions that will make your jaw drop: CLICK HERE and take a browse!  Plus, "The Pony" extension only costs $39.00.  
It's worth investing...to have a "GREAT" hair day everyday!

I'm delighted to have found this product and I can't wait to share my enthusiasm with other mommy's who are in the same desperate "hair situation" as me!

A-Leg-Up LLC - Making Toe Nail Polishing Easy Peasy...

Have you ever thought...I wish I didn't have to bend over so far to paint my toes, tie my shoes, rub lotion on my feet or clip my toe nails?  Or...I wish there was a more comfortable way to do these things!  Or, if I could just stabilize my foot...I wouldn't get paint everywhere or my paint job would be a whole lot better!

Maybe not...or maybe so...but regardless, I have a great product that makes doing those things less strenuous and super easy & fun!
(This product was sent free of charge for this review/feature!  I was not paid to give my honest opinion about this product!)
A-Leg-Up LLC has created a product that will save your aching back (or at least make it less strained when you get things...that you need to do with your feet...done)!!
It's so easy to use!  
You simply tuck it in between the cushions of the couch or between the mattresses on your bed.
Then you sit down, put your foot on it and get the "JOB" (whatever it might be) done!  The A-Leg-Up Product is also handy if you're painting or clipping someone else's toe nails!  This would be a great help to pregnant women who are having a hard time bending over, anyone with back issues or the elderly (it will keep their foot stable and level).  I LOVE THIS IDEA!!

Learning Something New - Playing The Guitar

I learned to play the piano starting at age three and have always had a major LOVE of music...but the guitar has always been an instrument that has intrigued me and I have never learned to play!  
It's the instrument of romance!  
Hey...Valentine's Day is right around the corner!

So after years of pining after this instrument, and my love for it's sweet & soothing music, I learned to play my first song today...after only 30 minutes on YOUTUBE!  YAY ME!!
Obviously...it's not perfect...but at least it sort of sounds like it, right?  

And yes...you better believe that this will now be played at EVERY birthday party from here on out...BECAUSE I CAN!!  And I will be singing too!

Thanks for letting me share!

Let VO5 Give Your Hair A Little Extra "LOVE" - #GIVEAWAY Gift Pack

Our home is on a tight budget, so things like SALON hair treatments and such are not something that I consider a NEED!  Therefore, they simply don't happen!  That doesn't mean that mommy doesn't want to take good care of her hair and sometimes "TREAT" herself to somewhat of a "Salon Treatment" at a Target price!
(I was not paid to offer my honest opinion about these products!  These products were sent free of charge for this review/feature!)

That's why I love VO5 Salon Series Products!  As I've told you in the past (CLICK HERE to read about our past experience), they make excellent products that are within everyone's budget!  
That means that Mommy can look & feel amazing about her hair, without having to go out of budget...
I received a gift pack...which I was so excited about putting to good use...I decided to wash my hair AT ONCE! 
Washing my hair is always a treat for me!  It's something that I've personally neglected over the years and now I am finding it important to take better care of myself...including my hair!  These products smell great, make my hair feel soft, manageable, tangle free and simply amazing!  I feel like I stepped right out of a salon, without having to put out the money to do it!
It's funny, but my oldest daughter has actually taken the MOST to these "Salon Series" products!  She has exceptionally long hair that is really hard to manage when she's washes it!  But when she uses the VO5 Salon Series Products, we get through the combing process "tear free" and almost "grumble free" too!  
WE LOVE THEM!!  

So does your hair need a little LOVE?  Would you like to win a GIFT PACK too?  
I get to offer (1) One Bored Mommy Blogspot Reader the same gift pack we received!

Just A Small Plug - A Show Has Me Hooked : "CALL THE MIDWIFE"

Since we no longer have cable, Netflix has been our only television viewing pleasure!  It's okay with me & our kids!  Most of the shows the kids watch are on it anyway and I have been able to find a few new ones to watch as well!  

Plus my friends on Facebook are great at making recommendations...like this one:
"Call the Midwife"
 This show is set in the 1950's...an era I think I was meant to live in!  Life was much simpler then!  Less electronic and far more personal!  People mattered more than things!  Clothing was much more modest and still fashionable!  Of course there are births, but there is always more to the story than that!  There is always a personal connection in each episode and it has drawn me in!

If you haven't seen the show, you must at least watch one episode!  It's very clean, no cussing, no sex (that I've seen so far), but I do watch it when the kids go to bed, because it jerks a few tears out of me almost every single episode!  SOOOO GOOD!

Don't just take my word for it!  
Watch it!  
I think you'll like it too!

Join Lysol's "NO FLU CLUB" And Keep Your Family Healthy This Winter - A #GIVEAWAY GIFT PACK

The flu!  When it rears it's ugly head (and yes, it's truly ugly in all sense of the word), we want to run, scream and hide!  But what happens when your kids bring it home from school to "share" with you?  What can you do to keep it from spreading to everyone in the family...and more importantly getting YOU sick too?

NO ONE WANTS TO GET SICK!

I am always grateful for products that make my life easier as a mom...but especially ones that have a track record for not only making it easier, but keeping us healthier in the process!

(All products were sent free of charge for this review/feature!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my opinion about these products!)


LYSOL is a brand name that most of us have grown to love and trust!  Honestly, the smell of the tradition LYSOL in a can disinfectant spray makes me think of staying healthy (and actually the reason that I keep it on stock too).


I was delighted to receive a package from Lysol of their "Power & Free" Multipurpose Cleansing Wipes, their "Touch of Foam" Antibacterial Hand Wash and the "Lysol Disinfectant Spray" (it's coming in a separate package).
This KIT was meant to combat GERMS!!  
This is the kit every mother would love to receive in the mail!  TRUST ME!
Lysol products have a mission to keep us healthy!  
So what do you use these products on?  Obviously...the spray can be used all around the house!  I've used it on furniture, on the counter tops, and basically the air itself!
The antibacterial "Touch of Foam" hand wash is perfect for frequent hand washing...which is a NECESSARY MUST, especially when there is sickness in the home!

I love these!  Why?  Because I can use them to wipe off anything and everything!  Yes...as you can see, even things we don't often think about, can have little germ bugs waiting to climb aboard and infect us!  NO THANK YOU!!  I'll wipes you away!

Did you know that even pediatricians recommend LYSOL products?  So obviously, not just "THIS" mommy is a believer!

Would you be interested in winning a "NO FLU CLUB" GIFT PACK too?  
You will receive:

New Products From @FireFlytb - Angry Birds And Light Up Timer Toothbrushes

Keeping my kid's teeth clean & healthy is UBER important to me!  

I was not paid to feature this post!  I was not compensated monetarily at all by posting about these products!  These products were sent free of charge for this review/feature!

Did you know that February is "National Children's Oral Health Month"?

That makes me thankful for the products like the ones I get to share with you from:
Firefly takes your children's short attention span into their oral hygiene products and makes tools that are fun, inviting (characters they love like Angry Birds, Phineas and Ferb, Barbie and Hello Kitty) and helps them keep track of how long they are brushing for!
CHECK OUT my video on a few of these fun new FIREFLY products:
We have used FireFly toothbrushes and toothpaste in the past and my kids continue to use them for their everyday brushing!  I love the "accountability", because it makes it easy for them to know they have brushed for the right amount of time!  I love that their "anti-cavity" products are of interest to my kids, because of the characters they have partnered with...ones my kids are excited about and enjoy!  This make teeth brushing and rinsing a FUN experience all together!
In January, Dr. Fresh LLC and Firefly, along with Oral Healthy of America, partnered up to promote regular tooth brushing accessibility and fun, benefitting the Smiles Across America program.  Firefly will donate $25,000 and thousands of it's Light-Up Timer toothbrushes to at-risk children.

I THINK THAT IS AWESOME!

If it's been awhile since your children have gotten new brushes or you've been looking for a way to inspire them to brush longer or for the recommended amount of time, then please check out Firefly toothbrushes & products!  You will be amazed at how "inspired" your children will become, in caring for their teeth!

FireFly products can be purchased by CLICKING HERE or in retail stores like Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, etc.!
