Glitter, Glitz & Glam: Mia Beauty’s Holiday Hair

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**



Mia Beauty’s has some fun hair accessories for this holiday. If you are something who loves to always dress up for the holiday or even if you don't but you want to add just little something to your look. Then Mia Beauty is were you should go and see what they have.



Part Art is a hair ornament that will add a nice pop to your hair. The specially designed Grip-it material adheres to the hair, holding Part Art in place without chains. I like this a lot but it did have a little trouble trying to take it off my hair. This is something I can see myself using on a special occasion.

$8.00 / Available at CVS Pharmacies


Bling String is tinsel for your hair. I feel that this tinsel is a little better made for your hair then if you just took tree tinsel and tried to keep it on your hair. Very easy to put in and take off of your hair. I like that my little one will keep this in hair hair all day and does not pull it out like she does with a lot of her air things,

$10 / Available at CVS Pharmacies and online via www.miabeauty.com

Temporary Tattoos

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**


Famous tattoo artists designing amazing temporary tattoos. TattooYou.com reinvents the temporary tattoo with the best imagery and styles from the world of permanent tattoo.


I been looking to get a new tattoo but don't know what I want. TattooYou.com is the best way to go because they are temporary tattoos you can put wherever you want on your body and you can pick from the tattoo you would like and see how you would look with it on. The tattoos are art work from tattoo artists them self so its like you have your working with your own tattoo artists.

I was sent over some to try out and I must say that I am loving them. The tattoo that I pick out is a little something like a tattoo I been looking to get for a long time. I have it on my arm and after about 15mins I did not like it there so I am so happy I did not get a real tattoo there.

Overall I like this site a lot for myself and the kids. It give you some kind of a idea of how you would look with tattoos if you don't have them or just looking to get more.

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**





Jan Marini Skin Research’s limited edition Holiday Exfoliator in Cranberry Orange and Sugar Cookie. I am a big fan of Jan Marini and own some of her products for years now. Everything I have tried out I am hooked on because it works for me and my skin. So when I seen that there are two limited edition Holiday Exfoliators in Cranberry Orange and Sugar Cookie I just had to try one of them out.


I was sent their Sugar Cookie what sale for $85.00 and is a 2 oz. jar. A little goes a long way and
my skin is so dry right now and I apply my makeup you can tell how dry my face is. When I took a shower in the morning I used this on my face and when it was time to do my makeup I seen how smooth my makeup was and how perfect it look. This is a nice scrub to get all the dry skin off your body and leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft.

Piper’s Perfumery Naughty & Nice 


For the girl who can’t pick and shouldn’t have to, have it all with Naughty & Nice, a sensual fragrance that will help you embrace your every emotion! Top notes of Sweet Mandarin and Cyclamen lead into mid tones of Sensual Jasmine, White Cedar and Sugared Amber Crystals, ending with dry notes of Creamy Sandalwood, Warm Vanilla Bean and Musk.


The Sandalwood, Warm Vanilla Bean together is something I like in this body perfume. I like that it's not overpowering scents and that it does last a long time on. They offer many different scents then just the one I got to try out.

Fitbug

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**


The Fitbug Orb is a discreet, button-sized device that tracks your activity around-the-clock. From steps and aerobic steps to calories burned, distance walked and even your sleeping patterns, the Fitbug Orb sends all this data wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth Smart technology. You can then view all your progress in one place - on the Fitbug app, or on the robust Fitbug member portal.


One thing I like about the Fitbug is that the Fitbug Orb can be worn around the neck on a lanyard, attached to clothing using a clip or on the wrist with an adjustable watch style strap. This is very easy to set up and it's even easier to use. I am trying to lose weight and with this device it helps me a lot to counts my steps, calories that I have burned,even when I go on my walked I can see all the data from my phone.


I love my fitbug a lot because it does exactly what I need it to do but so much more. If you want to update your steps then you just need to press the button once at night when you want to sleep you just press the button three times. If you are looking to get back in to a work out this may be something to look in to getting,

Holiday gifts for all

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**




Are you looking to get something for someone on your holiday list and don't know what to buy them. Here are somethings that they all may like.


I am a big fan of Betty Boop and was happy to get two things that had her all over them. I am a big water lover and taking it with me on the go. With the Betty Boop 27oz Stainless Steel Water Bottle I can take my water with me on my walks or in the car and show off how cute it is. If you like to have mints with you all the time they have two Betty Boop mints tins that are easy to put in your bag or take on the go.


We all like candles and jewels and now you can have both at one time. With Jewel Scent you get a hidden jewel valued between $10 to $7500 inside your candle. All you have to do is burn the candle until you see the gold foil bow out the flame and let the was cool off because you remove the foil. I find that tweezers is the best way to take it out the candle. Unwrap foil and find whats inside. They also have Aroma Beads and Moroggan oil Soaps with jewel inside.


Shwings Online has lot of cool things for kids from giving them wings, show looms even stickers to make your shoes a little more fun. The kids just love them and always ask me to bye more because its like having new shoes all the time.
Overall if you are looking for the right gift or even something for the kids all 3 site have cool things to offer.
