Review: Aveeno Nourish Hair Care Products


I wash and condition my hair everyday and with all my drugstore deals my bathroom is pretty stocked.  Back in June I was able to score a lot of Aveeno Nourish hair care products for free and loved using Aveeno Nourish.  In fact I love the whole Aveeno product line (face and body) especially the baby line for my children. I typically swap out my shampoo and conditioner regularly as with our water softener hair products build up quickly and my only option is to switch to a new shampoo and conditioner.  I recently switched back to Aveeno Nourish for this review and my hair couldn't be happier as even in the dry winter air it is certainly softer than usual.

The products I used for the review are the Nourish + Moisturize shampoo and conditioner and the Nourish + Style Smoothing Shine Creme. I have dead straight thick hair but need some help as I have new hair growing which loves to just stick up especially in the winter.  They all worked wonderfully together to give my hair a silky (but not weighed-down) feel and lots of great shine and control. 

Aveeno has partnered with celebrity stylist Patrick Melville
Check out Patrick's practical and holiday specific tips here


My daughter inherited my straight hair and my husbands curly hair. 
Strangely enough her hair is a mix of both which can prove frustrating when trying to straighten out or curl her hair.  Patricks tip below has helped me to enhance my daughter's natural curls:

How do I add better definition to my natural curls?
First use NOURISH+ MOISTURIZE Shampoo and Conditioner and towel dry hair to remove excess moisture. Spray NOURISH+ STYLE Curl-Defining Spray-Gel throughout hair and distribute evenly with a wide tooth comb. Lightly mist NOURISH+ CONDITION Leave-In treatment to add extra moisture. On low heat, blow dry your hair with a diffuser, pushing the curls in as you dry. Give your hair a light mist of the Curl-Defining Spray Gel to finish.

Aveeno Nourish products are available in many stores, so keep an eye out for them!

This post was written for Family Review Network & Aveeno who provided the complimentary products for review in exchange for my honest opinions.

Blogtastic Extravaganza: Novica Early Entry Review & Giveaway

Photobucket

Looking for that unique gift for my husband every birthday and Christmas is difficult.  Hubby likes the finer things in life and he has everything he needs really, that is until I checked out Novica...


Novica's Mission page states "Novica is Different". 
This is certainly true.  While looking online there are so many stores that offer the same ol' same ol' gifts.  Novica offers artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity, so the gifts that you choose from Novica for you and your loved ones will truly set your gift apart from others.

While a lot of review products are for either me or the children, I decided to review a product to give to my husband.  I ordered these  6 "Green Fade" Shot glasses ($29.99) which are handcrafted by Javier and Efrén from Mexico.  I loved how these were beautifully wrapped which included a little note too from Javier and Efrén.  This Shot glass set will add nicely onto his collection and I'm sure will be a talking piece at our parties because of its uniqueness.

Time of year to stock up....


If you have some cash still left in your wallet now is the time to stock up on next Christmas.  We may be 360 days away from Christmas 2011 but it will slowly creep up on us LOL.  On the serious side, with all the Christmas clearance sales its worth scouting around for toys, decorations and Christmas cards to set aside for birthdays and Christmas next year.

My favorite is Target, right now Christmas decorations are 50% and toys are 30%.  I stocked up on the Holiday design Bounty paper towels, paper napkins and plastic fork sets as these can be used now and throughout the year.  Plus I had the $1/1 Bounty coupons from the P&G big savings booklet and they worked perfectly with the 50% off clearance.  I stocked up on wrapping paper and Christmas cards.  It will go to 75% but I knew the paper towels etc.. won't last long at 50% off.

I scoped out the clearance toy aisle today at Target - its at 30% but hoping next week it will go to 50% and then 75%. 

My next favorite place to go is Hallmark, I love their Christmas card selection and some of the cute whimsical Christmas decorations.

If you are doing some clearance shopping in Kohls print this 20% off coupon to make your spend stretch that much further.  This coupon is good till Jan 1, 2011.  Thanks MoneysavingMom

Review / Giveaway : F-Secure Internet Security 2011

With all the cashback & daily deal sites and sign up pages that I frequent on a daily basis I always worry about viruses and trojan worms.  My old laptop has already bit the dust with a virus and now I need to protect my current laptop and our home PC.  Plus don't get me started with Phishing and spam.


I was excited to find that I was given the opportunity to review the Internet Security 2011 software by F-Secure.


F-Secure Internet Security 2011 is a fast and easy-to-use software that keeps viruses, worms, spyware, and harmful Internet sites away from your computer.  After installing F-Secure Internet Security 2011, the first part involved scanning my computer for viruses and malware (malicious software that infects your computer). While this was taking place, my computer ran slightly slower but not too bad that I couldn't continue my blogging.  Once the scan was complete, I was informed of what to fix and what kinds of sites to avoid in the future.  A great feature for our household was the Parental Controls that let me choose whether users of that particular computer can visit certain sites. This is perfect for my family as my children become ever more tech savvy, even at such young ages!  Finally, Browsing Protection will alert me if a site is suspected of being unsafe. I now feel more secure on the internet and can continue my social networking endeavours without any worries.

BUY IT
F-Secure Internet Security 2011 is affordable to buy. A 12-month license that lets you install the software on up to 3 computers is ONLY $39.99 right now for a limited time! (regular price $59.99)

FREE

TLC Extreme Couponing - are you one of them?


Which do you prefer?
Extreme Couponing or Stay Low under the Radar Couponing?

While I'm addicted to freebies through couponing and love the thrill of the freebie chase, I do prefer staying low under the radar while couponing.  I don't like doing back to back transactions and will drive to another store to do another transaction or wait till the next day.  Even though I could technically walk away with several grocery bags full of free products after pairing sales, coupons and free coupons I tend to add some fruit to my basket so my total is not zero.  Once I've stockpiled enough of one product I donate to friends and family and those in need and do not stockpile until my stock is low.  Sales are cyclical and will come back.

Couponers regularly get a bad rap because cashiers are not fully trained or informed and so I don't want to be called out especially when I'm following each store coupon rules.  Most of my local stores know me as the couponer anyway just from coming in with my coupons but I'd rather not be known as "that crazy coupon lady".  Smart couponing is my motto - if you can't use it then its not free.

Well check out some extreme couponers tommorow on TLC channel at 8pm (EST), Nathan Engels (MrCoupon from Weusecoupons) is featured with his huge stockpile among one other who dumpster dives with her friends and family!  mmm yes I definetely prefer to coupon under the radar.

Holiday gift Guide: PlasmaCar Review & Giveaway

Welcome to The Freebie Junkie's Holiday Gift Guide
Gift: PlasmaCar
Category: Children's Gift 
Review & Giveaway

My children have so many vehicles to ride around in - they own bikes, scooters and wagons.  I love vehicles that require no batteries just pure kid energy as this allows my children to use up their own natural juices while developing their muscles and skills.  Wouldn't it be great to harness kid energy? in the meantime I'm happy for my children to expend their energy with fun products.
 
Have you seen these PlasmaCar's? 
The PlasmaCar is a mechanical marvel that makes use of that most inexhaustible of energy sources, kid-power, by harnessing the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, and friction.
 
 
We received a blue PlasmaCar for review - since its cold and snowy out we used the PlasmaCar in the basement.  At first I wondered what the fuss was as the forward motion with the steering wheel was not working so well.  Then, we placed the PlasmaCar on the tile floor of the basement and it was so easy to operate - so do not expect it to work on berber carpet LOL.  Its a marvelous design and actually not as strenuous as a bike or scooter but provides equally as much fun.  My son loved it so much that he sat on it while eating pizza and watching his movies.
 


The PlasmaCar can handle a load of 100 kg (220 lbs) on a smooth, flat surface, and 55 kg (120 lbs) on a rough, flat surface. So on a smooth flat surface Mom and Dad can get in on the fun.  I loved it as I navigated around our pool table.  So next time you are out and about with the kids and your child leaves their vehicle (like mine does) you'll have fun riding the PlasmaCar home.  Check out this YouTube video below.



BUY IT
PlasmaCar's retail for $69.95 at specialty stores and are available in 6 colors: Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Pink, Yellow, order one at Amazon for as low as $55.50 which includes free shipping.

 Having your own kids realizes how fortunate your children are.  For Christmas, as a child I usually received practical items such as shoes, socks and underwear and maybe one toy if the budget allowed.  I add "practical gifts" to my childrens Christmas gifts as well as toys.  The vast array of toys to choose from each year is amazing, have you heard of the latest craze - Squinkies? 



Each Squinkies Surprize Bubble Pack includes 16 collectible “squooshy” Squinkies, including four hidden “surprise” Squinkies, to start or add to a collection. Each lovable little squishy, squooshy and squashy Squinkie is individually packed in its own toy bubble!  Squinkies just launched the new Bubble Pack Series 7, 8, and 9! These are so cute and make a great gift idea!
 

My daughter loved opening each surprize up and playing with them.  They also fit nicely onto pencils as pencil toppers.  My son loved to place them back into the bubble and play them like marbles. 

The Squinkie Doos are even cuter with their long furry hair which reminds me of the trolls.  My daughter is going through the stage where she likes to do her own hair or her friends and her dolls so the Squinkie Doos are perfect for her.


BUY IT
Squinkies are available at major retailers such as Target and Walmart and for those with Swagbucks to use up head to Amazon to purchase a bubble pack and accessories. I love the Squinkies Gumball Surprise Playhouse and Squinkies Cupcake Surprise Bakeshop.

Thanks to Squinkies a Freebie Junkie reader will win a Squinkie bubble Pack and a Squinkies Squinkie Doos
