Unilever Suave Refresh & Revive Review

*I received this product complementary from Influenster for testing purposes only. All opinions are my own.*

I got my Sauve Dry Shampoo in the mail the other day and couldn't wait to try it out. My hair gets oily really quick unless I take multiple showers throughout the day to keep it dry. 

So I turned to dry shampoo to help me out. Thanks to Influenster and Sauve I was able to test their Refresh and Revive Dry Shampoo out. 


                                                

 I have used other dry shampoos before, but they always leave my hair feeling grimy - like I have to much product in my hair. And that's before I even style it.

With Sauve Refresh and Revive I did not notice it having the same effect. In face I could use it and style my hair and it still felt light and not weighed down by products. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is a dry shampoo addict like myself.

Sleep Lovers By ZzzQuil

Recently I got the chance to try out ZzzQuil for free from Influenster for testing purposes. Now I am not a big fan of artificial sleep. But it has to be better than what I am already doing - which is basically read until I am so tired I am falling asleep.



Doesn't matter what I do throughout the day or how early or late I go to bed. As soon as I lay down it is like a switch is flipped and I am automatically awake. 


After trying these two little pills I will admit I got the best nights sleep. I also fell asleep faster than I have in a long time (and that's saying something).


I may not go out and buy it all the time, but I will be keeping some on hand for those nights I am desperate for some decent sleep.

#ReverseYourRoutine


I was a little skeptical about trying out @Tresemme's new #ReverseYourRoutineproducts, but thanks to @Influenster I was able to try it out! 

Initially washing your hair is weird. You don't notice how clean your hair is until you are out of the shower and drying it. It feels grimy when you are washing with conditioner first and then a little dry when you shampoo it last. At least that is how it feels to me. The results once your hair is dry is amazing.

My hair has never been more soft and full of volume. I would definitely recommend trying this out to anyone.  

Conditioning first and then shampooing defiantly takes some getting used too!

Mayballine Brow Pomade Review

*Product received by the Influenster program for testing purposes and review. All opinions are my own* 

I received the soft brown and auburn pomade Crain for brows by Mayballine from Influenster. 

You guys I am totally in love with this product. I can apply my brows and it's 10x's easier! As a busy mom that's where it's at. Before I'd spend 5-10 minutes applying my brows and now it takes me less than two minutes!

Being a SAHM rocks!

The last few weeks have been a whirl wind of activities. Activities I would have missed if I had still been working.

Sometimes being a SAHM rocks!

I got to go visit family for a whole week and enjoy having them spend time with their Aunties, Cousins, and both sets of Grandparents.



We celebrated weddings, birthdays and graduations.

My niece Meagan got married in the Temple to her soul mate. Seriously they are the cutest couple ever!

My other Niece Katnip turned 2 and my Nephew Dj turned 8!




I painted Squish’s room. She now has the cutest little girl room ever! She calls it her princess room.




Turtle turned 4!




Then my soul sister graduated Heritage University with her Masters and landed a teaching job, teaching 3rd graders! Way to go Sara!!!

Country Crock Review

***I received this product free for testing purposes.***

I have been using Country Crock since I was a little kid. It has always been a staple at my home. Of course once I grew I tried other butters but kept coming back to Country Crock. 

There is nothing like the Country Crock's buttery taste, from pancakes to cookies to spreading it across our toast, the ease of the spread and the taste are what my family loves the most. 


I want to thank Influenster for providing me with a coupon for testing purposes with Country Crock

Home

Back in July last year we moved. We sold our old home and bought a much bigger home. To give you some perspective we went from an 850 sqft to a 2300 sqft home. These are the stock photos from the website but it gives you a little look into our new home:

















                                     

Isn't it wonderful? I have been in love with this house since we first set foot into it. There is so much more room to play and run and explore. The kids love it and I feel like I can breathe better. I was starting to get very claustrophobic in the other house. This was such a nice change.

Hello.

About two weeks ago I headed back into the world of SAHM-hood ßI know, I know that was kind of corny right?

But, it is true! My husband and his best friend are taking off on a business venture. They have started up Joint Associates Center for Training.

It has given me the opportunity to stay at home with my babies once again. Now that I have more free time on my hands I am hoping that I can not only get you caught up on our shenanigans from the past year and a half to what we are up to now.


I won’t dump everything all in one post, instead I will leave this short and simple and sign off with a cute picture of Squish and Turtle:

aftermath


It has taken me a while to wrap my head around the results of my Hystorectomy. I thought that going in there knowing that it was bound to happen, my PCOS was just to much, and I already had my tubes tied that I could do it and be fine afterwards. 

No more pain, no more moon, no more fetal position once a month. Not to mention all the money I would say not having to buy moon supplies. 

So when I went in for my six week check up with Dr. Muhulland and found out that the pain I was in was due to a botched cut during my Cesarian with Squish. I didn't know how to react. Aparently what happened was when Dr. Ortolando did the initial cut he sliced my uterus and my bladder, causing them to fuse together when the cuts healed. So everytime I moved, breathed, did any activity the scar tissues was ripping and pulling and causing me to be in a great amount of pain. 

Dr. Muhulland chose to still do the Hystorectomy because there was not a way to keep my uterus and bladder in my body without the scar tissue causing me trouble in the future. For that I am greatful; I have not been in pain since having the hystorectomy done. 

In fact this is the longest I have not been in pain since the first time I got my moon. 

It has taken me months to come to terms with the news that I could have had more children, that my uterus was healthy (just really thick) and because of the Cesarian I had had I essentially lost my uterus. 

I knew Riot and I were done having children, but; I had wanted to be a surragate. I had wanted my body to give life to more children. Now, that will never happen. I am not sure how I feel about that. I am still working through those feelings. 

I know I don't owe anyone an explination, but I felt like I owed you all an answer to what happened. I basically quit blogging after that. Working full time and being a parent I was sparadically blogging anyway, but I basically just quit blogging after I found that out. Months have gone by with maybe one or two blog posts and I felt bad about that. 

I love blogging and I miss it. It is something that I want to try to do more of this year. I am not going to promise that I will be back up and running with 5 blog posts a week, but I am going to ease back into it. I owe it to myself to get back to doing things I love to do. 

Thank you for all understanding and hanging in there with me while I was on hiatus. ​
