No More Tangles and Morning Battles with the Wet Brush!

My boys used to fight me every morning to comb their hair because of the tangles. I can’t say I blamed them because I have fine hair like them, and it also tangles easily. But we recently found a fantastic product called the Wet Brush, and I’m pleased to announce that the battles have ended! I have to admit that I was skeptical about whether the Wet Brush would really live up to its claims to be “pain free,” but it really works for us!

When my son, Austen, first eyed the brush, I had to convince him to try it because he’d always had such a bad experience with combing his hair. I should add that he swims with a swim team nearly every day, so his hair can get especially dry and brittle from the chlorine (and he refuses to wear a cap). But after the very first brushing, he decided he loves the Wet Brush! Now, it is the only thing he will use to detangle his hair. He uses it both right after a shower or swim (when his hair is wet), as well as when his hair is dry. And, amazingly, it doesn’t hurt or rip out his hair!

Now I’m a convert to the Wet Brush, too. I have my own, which I take in the shower to comb out my hair after applying conditioner, and then I use it on my dry hair during the day. I’ve even ordered a Wet Brush Squirt, which is a mini-version that I can carry in my purse. (It’s a great size for little hands, too.)

I don’t have daughters, but I can imagine that the Wet Brush would be great for girls with long hair who hate to have their hair combed because it hurts to get through the tangles. They can even have fun picking from the Wet Brush’s many colors and designs, like those pictured below.

If you’re tired of the daily battle with brushing your kids’ hair each morning, or even are frustrated with how difficult it is to comb your own hair, I recommend you pick up a Wet Brush for every member of your family! Learn more at

EndoMune Advanced Probiotic: Review and Giveaway

There are many probiotics brands available at the store, but not all of them are the same. We found that out when my husband recently switched from the brand he was currently using to EndoMune Advanced Probiotic, which was developed by Dr. Lawrence Hoberman, a board-certified gastroenterologist. What did he like about EndoMune Advanced Probiotic?

His gastrointestinal system felt better all day because each capsule is time-released, which means the ingredients are being released gradually all day, not all at once.

EndoMune contains 20 billion bacteria per serving, which is many times more than the brand he was using. He could really tell the difference.

EndoMune also comes in a special bottle that actually protects the helpful bacteria inside from humidity, which is especially important where we live in south Florida.

The 20 billion bacteria in EndoMune come from 10 beneficial bacteria, including Bifidobacteria, Lactobacilli and Streptococcus. Many other products only contain 1-10 billion bacteria per serving and just one strain of bacteria.

My husband has really noticed a difference in the way his “tummy” and the rest of his body feels since using EndoMune. Visit to learn more about EndoMune Advanced Probiotic and its founder Dr. Lawrence Hoberman, and then pick up a two-month supply on the website, on Amazon or at a pharmacy or health food store.


One lucky winner will receive a bottle of EndoMune Advanced Probiotic (a 60-day supply)! Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends at 11:59 PM EST on Monday, September 8, 2014.

On the Road and Back to School with Fruit Vines Bites!

We just returned from a very long road trip from south Florida to northern Georgia, and with two very bored boys in the back seat, we needed plenty of games, movies and snacks to keep them occupied! One snack that was a big hit were American Licorice Company’s new Fruit Vines Bites! These soft, chewy candies were the perfect size for the kids to pop in their mouth without making a mess in the car. My husband kept stealing the cherry ones from them because they were his favorite. Fruit Vines Bites are also available in strawberry flavor. I felt good in knowing that they are low-fat and free of preservatives, too.

The resealable 10-ounce stand-up bag is great for sharing, and the 2-ounce single-serving size is perfect for putting in school lunches now that our summer vacation has ended and the boys are back to school. There are 5-ounce bags too ~ so many terrific options!

American Licorice Company has been making candy and treats for 100 years, so they know how to please palates! The Fruit Vines Bites are especially appealing to people who aren’t crazy about chocolate, like my husband. I hope you’ll pick up some Fruit Vines Bites for your next road trip and for your children’s school lunches! They’re available at Walmart, Kroger, Walgreens, Target and other major retailers.

Back-to-School with Minted Thank-You Notes for Kids, School Supplies, Gifts and More!

I’m sure that people will call me old-fashioned, but it makes me sad that children are no longer encouraged to write letters, and especially thank-you notes! My boys are almost 11, and with all of the birthday parties we’ve attended, I think we’ve received maybe two thank-you notes for the gifts we’ve given. Honestly, it’s not so much the lack of a letter that’s missed but the idea that we’re not teaching our children that they should be grateful for what they receive and should show their appreciation to those people who made the effort to give them a birthday gift.

One way we may be able to encourage kids to be more enthusiastic about writing thank-you notes is by getting them their own personalized kids’ stationery. Minted has an excellent selection of stationery and thank-you cards that are just right for children to send. Check out some of the wonderful designs I found on their website:

There are 212 designs in all! And with many of the designs, there are different color options, the ability to add photos and, of course, the freedom to add your own text and names. Let your children help you choose their own cards and perhaps they’ll have more enthusiasm for writing thank-you notes to their friends and family!

Minted also has a Back-to-School Shop with other exciting personalized products to commemorate the start of school, such as:

Minted is the perfect place to shop for unique gifts for your child’s teachers! Celebrate back-to-school season with a visit to Help your child improve his writing skills by encouraging him to write thank-you notes this year on his own personalized stationery. And start planning for the holidays with personalized gifts for teachers, friends and family. Visit today.

Back to School with Fun New Products from Post-it Brand!

Do you remember a time before Post-it notes? It’s hard to believe we ever survived without them! I use them all the time, both at work, in my home office, and for personal use. The kids use them at school, too! In other words, they have become indispensable in our lives, so I welcome hearing about the new products available from Post-it Brand! Check out some recent additions:

Post-it Pop-up Note Dispensers

Post-it Brand Colors of the World

Post-it Study Products

Post-it Super Sticky Die Cut Notes

Post-it Products Evernote Collection

The Home Collection

I received the adorable white cat Post-It Pop-up Note Dispenser featured at top for review, and I love it! It makes me smile every time I see it on my desk. The Post-it Notes come out from under the kitty’s paws, and the dispenser is filled with sand (or a similar substance) so that it doesn’t fall over and can also be used as a paperweight. Rubber dots on the bottom ensure that the dispenser doesn’t scratch my desk. And, of course, it’s refillable, so I can just keep adding new Post-it Note pads as I use them up. This product is a must-have for cat lovers like me!

As you’re seeking out school supplies at the store this year, be sure to check out the fun new products from Post-it Brand. Pick some up for your children and don’t forget to treat yourself, too!
