Collage It Review

Recently I was able to review a new collage website! You download their program and it allows you to make collage of your photos! I really enjoyed giving it a try! I made a number of different collages and you can even share them straight to your Facebook account! That is a plus in my book.

My family and I just moved to New York and so we are miles away from our friends and family! The best way to allow them to keep up with my family is through pictures. However, I found that I tend to take way too many pictures, and I am unable to choose between them! LOL! Rather than posting 30 different pictures, I can now add them all together in one collage and just post the one collage!

Here is one of my collages that I created using this program:

CollageIt is an automatic and easy to use collage maker to create eye-catching collages in no time on both Mac OS X & Windows. It excels with its ease of use.

Highlighted Features:

Designer Tie by PUCCINI

I was chosen as one of a select few to review an awesome Puccini designer tie. I am a women and of courses I don't wear ties, however I have an amazing father-in-law who does wear them daily. Now, not to be mean or anything, but he is kind of a tie snob. LOL. He only likes certain ties of certain qualities and this one passed the test. These ties are very nice and come in any color you could imagine!

This is the tie that I received:

I think it is a gorgeous color and of high quality materials. My inlaws are set to go on a cruise and I knew this color would match my mother-in-law's outfit perfectly so I sent the tie to my father-in-law. I was right the tie matched perfectly.

As you can see for yourself....this tie looks amazing. The best part is, while on the cruise he happened to drop some red sauce on his tie and was worried it wouldn't come out. However, no worries.....the sauce came right out and the tie looks just like new. 

If you want to check out the colors and designs available, you can do so here!

They have ties sorted by color and they have special sizes as well. Even kids sizes too. Not only do they have neckties....they also have bow ties, cuff links, and handkerchiefs! 

This is directly from their site:

More than Just a Tie Shop

Although we carry over a thousand different necktie and bow tie styles and designs in stock, there is much more to this site than a simple tie shop. Besides a large assortment of ties you will find instructions on tying neckties, on How to Tie a Bow Tie, and even on How to Fold a Handkerchief.
Besides tie knot instructions, we will educate you on specific dress codes such as Black Tie Attire, the right and professional Job Interview Attire, or the popular Casual Business Attire that many offices have adopted for so-called casual Fridays.

NAAT Brazilian Keratin Hair Care

Lucky me! I was lucky enough to be chosen to review the

NAAT Brazilian Keratin  Products! 

I was skeptical at first that these products could be as good as I have heard. I was excited to give them a try though! Much to my surprise they were more work then I thought they would be. LOL! I thought I would just put it in and wash it out and then my hair would look amazing....ha ha that was not the case! For the different products there are different directions for use to get the best outcome! I followed these directions and I can tell you that I am over-joyed about the outcome of my hair! I am much surprised to inform that I was actually completely stunned! lol!   

These are the products that I used: Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Mask, Leave-In, and the Serum.

Sun Shadz by Monimay

I am excited to share with you the new product I was lucky enough to get to try! I was able to try the new product called Sun Shadz by Monimay. Sun Shadz is an all natural sun screen for your scalp. I was never truly aware of how prominent scalp cancer is becoming. However, if you truly sit and think about it I think you would agree that most people that use sunscreen tend to use it everywhere on their body EXCEPT their scalp. After all, who wants all that greasy, oily substance in their hair? Well if you are like me then you agree that greasy and oily are not terms that you would like associated with your hair. However I have been recently trying to be as safe as possible when it comes to the sun and my skin. Well that is where this awesome product comes in. Sun Shadz and Hair Shadz are actually sunscreen for your hair that is a powder you apply directly to the roots and scalp. When you buy the product from the Monimay site it comes with the powder and a built in soft bristle brush that allows you to apply it easily and quickly. The other great part about this product is that it is an all natural mineral powder. Which means not only can women use it, men and children can use it as well!

As most of you know I live in Texas and last week we had a few actually HOT days. The sun was out and blaring down on us. I happened to decide to take my kids to the park one day so we could play and have a picnic. We turned out going around 10:00 AM and stayed until about 2:00 PM. I used the clear (shea) Sun Shadz on all of our scalps and then also applied sunscreen to the kids' faces and shoulders. I love how the Sun Shadz didn't make our hair look greasy or matted down. It actually made our hair look fuller and feeling soft. By the time we woke up the next morning, our scalps were all burn free and so were the kids' faces. My face on the other hand was red and tender on my nose and on my cheekbones.

You can order the Sun Shadz and/or the Hair Shadz right off the Monimay website. They sell for a price of $29.95. The Hair Shadz are actually colored in ordered to match your hair color. Sun Shadz and Hair Shadz come in 10 different colors including: Pale Blond (Pat), Beige Blond (Sandy), Golden Blond (Margaret), Light Brown (Anna), Light Warm Blond (Dona), Medium Brown (Chloe), Medium Warm Brown (Marsha), Dark Brown (Paula), Copper Red (Lucy), Red Violet (Gigi), and Translucent Sun Shadz (Shea).

Ateevia Botanica Pain Cream

So this holiday season I was blessed by being chosen to give the new Ateevia Botanica Prime Daily Pain Defense Cream a try! I was so glad to be chosen for this one too. I had heard about it and had my own doubts that a cream could work.

For Christmas I took a trip to Florida (from Texas) and drove there with the kids. By the time we got there my knee and back was killing me. I have arthritis in my knee and my back has pain when I do too much or sit too long. I was so thankful I brought this cream with on the voyage! I used the cream the night I got there before bed and then the next morning when I woke up and the pain was relieved! I was so happy! I couldn't believe that the cream worked so well.

So on the way home, I was in pain again and then when we arrived I forgot to put the cream on before bed! I woke up the next morning in so much pain. I used the cream in the morning and then at around lunch time and by bedtime I was in just very slight pain. I put it on before bed and by the next morning, I felt as good as new. This is most definitely my new "go to" cream for any inflammatory pain that I have.

This is directly from their site:

Ateevia Botanica has been clinically proven to decrease or eliminate inflammation at its source – in joints, muscles, and tissue – providing relief from the most common pain conditions. Massage Ateevia Botanica into your skin 2–3 times daily, or more often as needed. For best results apply in the morning and at bedtime.

Ateevia Botanica is effective in providing relief from some of the most common pain conditions in joints, muscles and tissues:
Arthritis / Arthritic Joints
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Tendinitis / Tennis Elbow
Plantar Fasciitis
Sport Strains and Bruises
Myalgia / Lower Back Pain
