I am really excited about the launch of the Best Buy registry because not only will it make it easier for me as a buyer for friends that are getting married. It will make it easier on them to create an easy registry at a store they love and trust to shop at. Best Buy has everything a newly wed couple needs to start out . A wide variety of consumer electronics and small appliances that are as much a need for newlyweds these days as silverware and towels.

Here are a few reasons we are you should be excited about this program also.

•Consumer electronics and small appliances are as much a need for newlyweds these days as silverware and towels. So it’s natural that customers can now turn to Best Buy for their wedding registry needs

•Get items you’re both excited about, like a great camera for your honeymoon adventure, an activity tracker for going on runs together, and Bluetooth speakers for the great parties you’ll throw.

Nair Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Removal Line

I know it is hard to think about the Spring when we are in the middle of winter and having snow on the ground, and covering up to stay warm. Well before you know it the weather will turn warm and we will want to look good. As the weather gets warmer we turn to the beauty ritual of hair removal.

Well Nair has introduced a New Line of Hair Removal with Moroccan Argan Oil. Inspired by the beauty rituals of Morocco, the Nair Moroccan Argan Oil line of hair removal depilatories and waxes contain 100% natural argan oil from Morocco know to be ultra-moisturizing, nutrient-rich, and restorative to help support the health and beauty of skin.

The line current has 6 products:

Nair Shower Power Moroccan Argan Oil
This is an in-shower depilatory for legs and body. It features Nair Shower Power technology to work while you are in the shower. It has maximum strength, effective even on course hair. The results last days longer than shaving, and it has been dermatologist tested.

Nair Sprays Away Moroccan Argan Oil
This is a depilatory for the legs and body. It comes in a convenient spray that allows for precise, no-touch application. All you have to do is a spray an even layer onto dry skin while in the shower of bath tub and remove with a damp washcloth.

Nair Ultimate Roll-On Wax for Body Moroccan Argan Oil
All you have to do is roll the applicator along your legs (or wherever else you want to wax!), then place the fabric strips over the wax before pulling them off. Personally I think this is completely painless but that’s down to individual opinion and it is a good idea to make sure you keep the skin taught to avoid pain and possible bruising. It took me about half an hour or a little more to do both my legs and afterwards they were very smooth The wax did get my hands, legs and anything else I touched a bit sticky but it washed off with a little soap and a bit of a scrub.

New Nair Glides Away Moroccan Argan Oil
This is a depilatory made for the bikini, arms, and under arms area. It is in a convenient deodorant-line canister that allows for precise, no-touch application. You apply an even layer on the targeted area and remove with a damp washcloth.

New Nair Ultimate Roll-On Wax For Face Moroccan Argan Oil
This product has breakthrough technology offered with salon strength results removing even very short hair and is formulated to be water rinseable so it washes off cleanly. The specially formulated resin wax heats with boiling water and delivers easy and precise wax application on facial hair through its contour tip. The roll-on applicator features a custom designed rippled wheel that enables the wax to be applied in a continuous even layer. It last up to 8 weeks.

New Nair Precision Kit For Face & Upper Lip Moroccan Argan Oil
This depilatory thoroughly removes hair from the face and upper lip. It has precise hands-free application with a contour applicator tip that removes all visible hair. It is specially formulated to balance moisture following skin removal.

I would definitely recommend this product to those looking for a hair removal solution that lasts longer than shaving and offers silky smooth results.

Batiste Dry Shampoo

Batiste Dry Shampoo is the #1 dry shampoo in the UK and now it comes to us. Batiste has a line of Dry Shampoos and a line of Dry Shampoos with hint of color.

I have always had fine hair and hairstyles and updos notoriously do not stand the test of time. Batiste Dry Shampoo is one of the best voluminous products that I have tried, resulting in making me an expert in creating bouncy hair in seconds. Batiste Dry Shampoo boosts volume, assists backcombing, subtly holds styles without feeling like you have hair caked in products, separates curls, absorbs oil and refreshes your look.

Batiste Dry Shampoo should be used in between washes in order to remove excess grease and leave your hair feeling clean and fresh with added body and texture.

Batiste products are great to use on the go – I always have a can in the bag or car, to me it seems just as essential as carrying deodorant or lip balm. I usually use the products after the gym or a long commute; it’s like perfume for your hair!

Batiste Dry Shampoo’s unique formula contains rice starch for a truly dry application. Rice starch absorbs oil and is light on your hair so it won’t weigh down or leave a heavy residue. Simply spray your roots, massage in, brush, and style.

I have been a long user of Purex laundry detergent because of well it works on dirt and stains. I also love that it is affordable and that I can clean clothes in just one wash. When I heard about this new Purex PowerShot detergent, I was really excited.

The new Purex PowerShot detergent, has the only bottle that measures the right amount of detergent every time. It is easy to use-just Flip, Dose and you are Done.

Purex PowerShot detergent simplifies the way you do laundry by taking the guesswork out of measuring and the mess that can come from it. The liquid detergent is automatically dispensed with the right amount of concentrated formula. To use, all you have to do is open the cap and flip the bottle upside down. After you’ve delivered a dose of detergent into the washing machine, flip the bottle right back up right and close the snap-top lid. The cap automatically refills and is ready for the next dose. Use one flip for regular loads and two flips for large or extra dirty loads. Purex PowerShot is available in two fragrances-Mountain Breeze and Natural Elements Linen & Lilies

I love the new way of dispensing laundry detergent into the wash. To celebrate the release of the NEW Purex PowerShot detergent, Purex is hosting an amazing sweepstakes, the Purex PowerShot Coming Soon Sweepstakes.

American Girl Be Forever Historical Characters-Kaya-Part 2

BF Kaya Doll and Book-LR

What I love about the American Girl Be Forever Collection is that each doll has a historical story that your child can learn from. These stories make us think of the time in which that doll would have lived and give us a glimpse into her customs and culture. It also gives us perspective of how far we have come.

The spotlight this month is on Kaya. Kaya is a Nez Perce Indian growing up in 1764 in the Northwest. In 1764, the Nez Perez way of life depended on horses, which had been brought to the Americas by Spanish explorers in the 1500s. Horses were highly valued by many Native American tribes because they enabled faster travel and better hunting. The Nez Perce became expert riders and breeders, developing the spotted Appaloosa horses, as they are known today.

Kaya’s stories are set at the height of Nez Perce horse culture, before direct contact with others began changing their way of life. Her stories show what it was like to grow up as a Nez Perez: how the Indians lived close to the land, getting everything they needed from it; how they made food, clothing, shelter, and other goods; how each member of the tribe depended on the others; and how knowledge was passed down from the elders to the children, so they could carry their traditions and knowledge into the future.

They are currently six books in the series that relate to Kaya:
These books were authored by Janet Shaw

Book 1: Meet Kaya
Kaya dreams of racing her beautiful mare Steps High. Her father warns her that the horse isn’t ready, but when a pesky boy insults Steps High, Kaya accepts his challenge to race. As they ride, Kaya loses sight of her little brothers. Her carelessness earns her a nickname that her friends won’t let her forget.

Book 2: Kay’s Escape
Enemy raiders are invading Kaya’s village! Kaya’s mother tells her to run for the woods with her blind sister, Speaking Rain. But as Kaya tries to protect her horse, she and Speaking Rain are captured! How will they ever get back home?

Book 3: Kaya’s Hero
When Swan Circling saves a baby on a runaway horse, Kaya is awed by the young warrior woman’s bravery. She wants to be strong like Swan Circling—but can she?

Book 4: Kaya and Lone Dog
Kaya misses Speaking Rain so much! She’s glad to find a new friend in Lone Dog but realizes it will take time to earn her trust.

Book 5: Kaya Shows the Way
As summer approaches, Kaya is hoping for news of her lost sister Speaking Rain. Meanwhile, her older sister, Brown Deer, will soon be married, and Kaya is worried—is she about to lose her other sister, too?

Book 6: Changes for Kaya
Speaking Rain has returned! As Kaya joins a hunting party traveling into the mountains, she’s hopeful that she’ll find her beloved horse, Steps High, too

They are points that you can use to talk to your child about the history of this time, so of them are listed below to give you a guideline.

The Nez Perce Indians
Before European contact, most Native Americans lived in small villages or groups in which everybody knew one another. Like the Nez Perez, many tribes traveled with the seasons, going where the food was best, and returning to more permanent villages for the winter.

Living Close to the Land
In 1774, the Nez Perce did many things differently than we do today-yet they had everything they needed and plenty of time for fun.

Learning from the Elders
Nez Perez children were expected to help the adults in their daily tasks of gathering, preserving and preparing food; making clothing and shelter; and caring for the younger children and the tribe’s herd of horses. Adults also shared their wisdom about how to get along with others and how to survive in difficult circumstances. In this sense, all the adults in the village were teachers, and all the children were students learning the Nez Perez way of life.

How fascinating all of this is, and you child can learn all of this and so much more through these wonderful books.

Now I have some really exciting news the great people at American Girl want to give you a chance to kick off this series and give a lucky a reader a chance to win their own Grace doll. Please join us again next month, for the next part of this series, and all year long

All you have to do is leave comment and follow me on twitter, instagram, pinterest, or facebook.

Please make sure to include your email so that you will be notified if you win.

This contest will run from January 12, 2015 to March 1, 2015

@The Moms Mamarazzi Event with Molly Sims & Lyve App

I recently attended an event that The Moms hosted at Artisanal Fromagerie Bistro, to talk to model Molly Sims about her beauty tips and tricks to being a model. We also got to learn more about the movie forty weeks. In addition, we learned about a new app that is going to change the way you think about taking pictures.

While attending I got to talk to some representatives for Lyve. What is Lyve you ask? It is one of the best storage applications. How many times have you said I don’t have enough space on my phone for pictures or have a friend tell you they don’t have enough storage for pics. Just when you want to take that one shot you get the message that it is full, it will drive you crazy. I can sometimes ask someone to take the picture but then you have to wait for them to send it. I have alot of pictures that I take and I just don’t want to delete them because they represent a time for me, that I have captured a moment, and I have conquered my fear of taking pictures. I don’t want to transfer pictures because who knows what will happen then.

Well I found out what I can do. I talked to the Lyve reps who told me about the Lyve Home Box. It is a device that automatically syncs your pictures from your phone to the device. It holds 2 terabytes of storage, can you imagine all the pictures you can take with that. Here is how it works you download the Lyve app it works with Android, Kindle Fire, Macs and Windows PC. Once you install the app on your devices Lyve will pull together all your photos and videos into one single library so you can find, share and view your photos wherever you go.

I wanted to try it so I installed the app to my phone, desktop and Ipad and like magic all my photos and videos were there together.

The Lyve Home has a LCD touchscreen, 2 terabytes of storage and connects via Wi-Fi or Ethernet. It sets up in seconds and will continue to backup new photos and videos as you capture them. Get this you can also have up to three additional users share storage on Lyve Home, with private access to their accounts.

This is truly an app that we all can appreciate and love for the value and the time it will save us. We all fear that moment when we might lose those priceless pictures, now we don’t have to worry about it anymore.

The Lyve Home can be purchased for $299 at a retail store or from the Lyve store. The app is free to download on the Apple Store. Check out the website at
You can also follow them on twitter at

Now I have some really exciting news the great people at Lyve want to give you a chance to win your very own Lyve Home.

All you have to do is leave comment and follow me on twitter, instagram, pinterest, or facebook.

Please make sure to include your email so that you will be notified if you win.

This contest will run until February 28, 2015. Good Luck

Can Do Duck: The Musical!!-#CDDTM


How many times have you had your child come home frustrated because they could not get the right answer on a question, or could not achieve a goal. We sit and talk to them providing them with encouraging words. We even tell them the story of the Little Engine that could. Yet sometimes it still might not get through to them. This new musical might just help you.

Can Do Duck: The Musical is a positive motivational musical for children and families about believing in yourself and saying “I can”. The musical follows the story of two families, a human one and a duck family, as they learn to try new things and work a a team to learn to love and accept each other. The musical is based on the successful book series The Can Do Duck that has positively influenced and helped people all over the world.

What I found so interesting was that the director, Arielle Sosland, created the musical for her father, a child psychiatrist and author of the “Can Do Duck” book years ago. She remembers fondly how her dad asked her and her five year old sister to draw pictures for the book.

I wondered how well the musical would be able to follow these parallel lines between human relationships and animal one. Yet, I could not help finding myself drawn into the situation with Sarah and the Dad and the Mama Duck and her little ones. The director had a amazing way of making us feel connected to the story.

The director did a great job in using the simple visuals to teach a child that you can do something. When the young duck, Can Do got frustrated; I felt for him, when he got lost, was lonely and afraid; I felt those same emotions. I was pulling for him all the way. The best part was how connected the children where to the characters. I watched their faces as they go sad when Can Do was lost, and how happy they were when the ducks learned to fly. The director managed to capture our hearts and teach us a lesson at the same time, which was quite an accomplishment.

The show opens on February 8, 2015 at the Lynn Redgrave Theater at Culture Project (45 Bleecker Street, New York, NY)
Ticket Prices:
Adult (18 and over) Ticket Price $40
Children (Under 18) Ticket Price $30
Children under 2 are free

By using the code “INTRONYC” you can get 50% off your tickets.

You can check out more on the musical at the following websites:

Stella & Dot Jewelry Line Empowering Females

Stella and Dot was co-founded by two Stanford grads, Blythe Harris and Jessica Herrin and are building a great business, all while empowering other women to be entrepreneurs in their own right through their social selling platform that allows their sellers or “stylists” as they call them to run their own trunk shows and e-commerece business. This is a jewelry and accessories that you actually want to wear at prices that range from as low as $19 to $300.

What is the business model all about?
The premise of the model is to provide flexible entrepreneurial opportunities for women. Co-founder Blythe Harris talks about meeting Jessica Herrin and being at a point in her life when she was thinking about having children and looking around to see how other women managed working and spending time with their children. She was really passionate about the idea of creating a flexible, modern opportunity for women.

How does the process work?
They have what are called “stylist” who sign up for $199. With that they get a starter kit of $350 worth of jewelry of their choice and professional business supplies suck as lookbooks, order forms and more. They own the samples and then they go out and host a trunk show. Through their own social network they’ll host a launch party with their own friends and then very quickly they’ll network and start getting other people to host trunk shows. Those people are called “hostesses”. You can participate in the brand in two ways: you can either be a stylist, where you earn 25 to 35 percent commission from what you sell or you can be a hostess, where you share your guest list and open your home to a stylists for a trunk show.

Do you plan on launching other categories?
In the Summer of 2013, bags and scarves were launched and where sold out very quickly. Accessories are very portable and very shareable, which is fits better into this model.

How much do your most successful stylists earn on average?
The potential earnings are what the stylists need it to be. The average stylist wants to be working 5 to 10 hours a week, not 40. They want want to make a little extra each month to help with the bills and support their children.

The key idea is for women to help other women
