Another KidzBop hit in my House!

For weeks, my kiddos have been asking for the new KidzBop 24 CD.  It arrived and the mail yesterday, and OH BOY, were they excited!!  We listened to it for three straight hours.  Yes, over and over and over.  But you know what, I didn't mind!  With hits like "Come and Get It" and "22", I was dancing around with them!! 

We've all heard of know "today's biggest hits sung by kids for kids".  Kids LOVE IT...and as a parent, I can relax  as I know the music is safe!  (My son learned a "bad word" two years ago while listening to my friend's iPad and from then on I have been extra careful about the music they listen to!)

My kids also love to visit the web site too!  My son loves Eva and thinks she's the best!  My kids want to be KidzBop Superstars one day...

Oh and that reminds me...don't forget to have your kid join the Kidz Star USA Talent Search 2013, which ends this week!

This is our eighth KidzBop CD, and again, it's a hit in our home.  You can grab your own copy today at discount stores, through the KidzBop web site or iTunes!  Let me know what you think!

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 acne regime that works...and I can afford!

I never expected to still have acne at 40, but I do.  I have tried acne kits from the discount stores (Clean & Clear Advantage.  I have tried acne kits from department stores (Murad).  I have gotten prescriptions from the dermatologist, most of which are so expensive, I don't even get them filled at the pharmacy.  They improve my acne, but nothing has ever cleared my acne.

So last month, when I was asked to try Dr. Baxt's Acne Kit II, I was excited for two reasons.  First, the price is right ($55 for a four-piece kit).  Second, it was developed by Dr. Rebecca Baxt, a certified dermatologist and assistant professor of dermatology! 

The first time I used the product, I could FEEL it was different.  I could feel the tightening and I had no oil on my face when I woke up the next morning!  It dried up my acne in less than two days.  And by day three, my skin felt smooth and soft!  No acne, no oily skin...just nice smooth skin!  I am really impressed by this new product!  If you or someone you know suffers with acne, please have them check out this product!

Quick and simple "Back to School" mantel

Last night, I decided to put together a "back to school" mantel.  I didn't have many supplies in the house so was limited in what I could do!

I found free banner letters on Shanty2Chic's blog and printed the schools initials!  Then I added the kids' past school pictures. 

My kids loved it and had the idea of adding their favorite school-themed books. 

It's not fancy but it was done in 30 minutes!  How do you celebrate back to school?

Fanta Sea Home Decor for the Beach House

While shopping this week at St. Armand's Circle (Sarasota, Fla area) I can across the cutest shop, Fanta Sea.  There is a web site too but it's not as cute as the store!
