I was asked to pick out three different products I would like to try. I went to the website and decided on some.
As I perused the selection of products I noticed they have a line of T-Tree Products. And a line of Extra Dry Products.
This all sounded great to me. As my hair has been really dry lately. So I knew I wanted some shampoo in conditioner from the Extra Dry products. Here is the shampoo I picked out to try:
And this is the conditioner :
I have been trying the Extra-Dry Salon Shampoo, and the Extra-DryAfter Shampoo Conditioner, for I think about 3 weeks now. And I really love them. They both have a really thick consistency to them. And really have been helping my dry hair. I also love the smell of them too.
For my 3rd product, I looked in the T-Tree section. And I noticed a leave in conditioner that looked interesting. I decided to get this one:
I love to use leave-in conditioner. And the T-Tree Leave-In Conditioner from Parnevu, doesn't disappoint I feel like you don't need to use it everyday, I personally use it about 2-3 days a week. But I really like this one. Like the other products, this is a really thick cream. It goes on really nice. And the other thing I noticed right away is the smell. It reminds me - literally of the pina colada smell! So much so, when I first tried it I was singing that pina colada song to my daughter- lol. Anyway, you really have got to try these products!
Updated to add:
I want to share with you a picture of my hair. My hair is normally curly/wavy. But if it's dry, I lose a lot of the curl. Using the Parnevu products, has really brought a lot of my curl back!
Here is some links for you:

A couple of weeks ago, I received a big package in the mail. It came with a case of Frush. In all kinds of flavors. Including Strawberry Banana, Blueberry, Peach & Strawberry.
The package also came with some pins, a Frush mat, some coupons, and two of those cool draw string bags. And probably some other stuff I'm forgetting about.
Here is some product info on Frush:
früsh is real fruit blended together with rich, creamy yogurt and all-natural health booster like HOWARU® Bifido probiotics and TruCal® Calcium. It's a delicious on-the-go superdrink that lets you eat healthier without having to turn your world upside down. Add some nutritious "feel-good" to your daily routine. Shake It Up.
I was to get at least 10 taste tasters of Frush. Of course it was easy to get my kids to try some:
The hard part was getting them not to have them all. Since this package arrived on a Friday, I had to wait until Monday, when my husband could bring some into his coworkers. So I had to keep some separate and beg the kids not to drink them all!
My husband, my daughter's friend and I also tried them over that weekend!
Then my husband brought them to work. And had some people try them there.
This coworker, apparently had never tried drinkable yogurt and found it somewhat odd. But then he tried the Frush and really liked it:
This coworker really, really loved it (my husband said):
She liked it too, and wanted to know where to buy some:
Here's a few more coworkers who enjoyed the Frush:
My husband brought some coupons into everyone the next day, and told them a store around here that carries them is Food Lion. Because that is what everyone wanted to know - were they could buy some! Check here to find a store near you: Store Locator.
Here's some links to check out too:

With this tool, you can customize your own sandwich. You can view the nutritional value of your creation too. Then you can share it on your social networks!
I got some ideas for making some cool sandwiches. But it also reminded me of a sandwich my Mom used to make, when I was growing up. It is the "opened faced" sandwich.
First I went to the store and bought some Smartwhite for Kids. It is a new bread from Wonder Bread - it just came out this Summer. It has a lot of nutritional value, and the taste and texture that kids love too. It also has no high fructose syrup and is only 50 calories per slice!
Here is how to make the sandwich. It's very simple. First lightly toast bread. Line baking pan with aluminum foil, place bread on pan. Then add sliced tomato, bacon (I even used the pre-cooked kind to make it easier), then a slice of cheese. Then broil in oven for about 3-5 min, until cheese is melted. This is how it looked when it was done:
My kids loved them. And gobbled them up. Everyone wondered why I hadn't made them that they can remember. I just basically forgot about them. But will make them again soon.
If you like Wonder bread then go and Like them on Facebook. Also check out the custom sandwich maker - "the Wonder-izer. And make your own sandwich!

• Healthy Urinary Tract
• Inhibits bacteria
• Treats and prevents bacterial infections
• Promoting kidney health
I received the above product to test out. I have suffered with urinary tract infections off and on pretty much all my life. So I was excited to try out this product. If you have any of the above urinary problems then this seems like a great idea to try this. I am going to take one a day, and try to prevent any future problems. Also it contains Vitamin C which I can always use too.
For regular use: take one capsule daily.
For intensive use: Take two capsules daily, in morning & night.
For best results, all usage should be taken with an eight ounce glass of water.
Here's a picture I took, to give you an idea what the softgels look like:

We had a good time. And I can't believe how many people actually were there. The place was full. More then they even had in the middle of the summer. We went in August, and there hardly was any one there.
Well anyway, remember I had said my son wanted to rent a kayak - well when we went to do that they said these kind they have you are sitting in a bunch of water, they kayak sinks in so your bottom half is emerged. Being October and the water is pretty cold, it's not a good time of year for that. Hopefully next Summer he definitely will have to try that.
So instead we rented some paddle boats. They kind you peddle with your feet. My daughter really wanted to try that. They could have used some boat covers on them though. My son's and mine was filled with water. The kid who worked there had to tip the whole thing over. I felt bad for this kid, because he said he had hurt his back in a football game the night before. So he was really having a hard time with it. My son helped him out as best he could.
Once we got going we had a fun time. My daughter especially loved the paddle boats. I'll try to post some pictures in a little bit of our trip!
proven to be effective in the regeneration of skin and provide results in
the treatment of burns and scars. It contains rich antioxidants,
fatty acids, and Vitamin E which can also
help diminish the effects of aging.
previous posts some of my daughter's mishaps. She's kinda accident prone - lol.
Here is the directions on how to do so:
Directions: Gently rub into scar 3-4 times per day for 8 weeks on new scars;
3-4 times per day for 3-6 months on existing scars. Recommended Usage:
Apply the Scar Serum will avoid the formation of the keloids scars which
may appear after surgical procedures, as well as most other common scars,
like acne scars.
As you can see this might take a while to work to the full effect. So given the
time frame of my review I can't 100% say the results. But I really see a lot
of promise in the product. And it couldn't hurt to try it. Try if for yourself.
Purchase the product at Dr. Max Powers

I asked my daughter to go to the site and pick out a costume she would like. She looked around and picked out this Greek Goddess Costume.
It is called the Goddess of Glam. I think Greek, Roman and The Olympians themes are really in right now.
Here is a few pictures I shot of her in the costume:

The sizes include moving boxes and a large underbed storage size
36L x 24W x 6"H that would be ideal for extra clothes and neat storage
where space is tight in dorm rooms. Moving boxes are
engineered to erect and collapse instantaneously without tape,
these are super for moving kids to and from school. Made from durable
polypropylene, these boxes should last the
4 years of moving your children to and from school.
numerous organizational projects around the home.
I talked in a previous post about how Packaways are great for your storage
needs. Well now I want to briefly discuss how they are great for your moving
The Packaways are great for moving - you can pack all your stuff in them,
and then when you get to your new digs, you can store the Packaways flat,
and then reuse them another time.
One such move would be for college bound students. These would be great for
your kids if they are off to college - they can pack everything in them. And then
say when they come home for vacations, etc., they could bring their stuff back
home in them!
