You can really get a hair color kit from Dollar Tree, Yes, yes!

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post.  I purchased this product with my own money and this is my own opinion.

Coloreaszy Permanent Cream Hair Color

I saw this hair color at Dollar Tree and  I was wondering whether this product was effective or was it a product that I should avoid.  I checked out many reviews on this hair color and there were many mixed reviews, "some hated it"  and some didn't.

Some of the complaints included claims that this product did not last very long on the hair and that it was very drying. Some people had some unrealistic views regarding this product.  It only cost one dollar and the color isn't going to last forever but I feel that it lasted a great amount of time on my hair.   The good reviews said that this product worked well and the colors were very vibrant.  I decided to get this hair color and see for myself and this is what I experienced.

  1. Very dark and vibrant color and I used the Black color because they were out of the brown at the time.
  2. My hair was so shiny and pretty looking and it made my natural curls stand out.  I have natural hair so this was really a plus.
  3. The application was so easy and very fast.
  4. This hair color did not burn and I did not experience hair loss.
  5. It completely covered the gray that I had around my temples.
  6. Although I am prone to have allergy reactions, it did not occur with this product.

The cons were!
  1. My hair was a little brittle but I used conditioner and it corrected this condition.
  2. If you have thick hair which I don't, you will need two boxes.

There isn't a lot of negatives with using this hair color.  It is always great to check out the reviews before buying a product because you can then decide whether the purchase is worth you spending your hard earned money on it. You could even purchase this hair color to use on your boyfriend or husbands hair.

This hair color from Dollar Tree is a product that is especially good if you are thinking about changing your hair to a new color because you can experiment and you are not out of a lot of cash.

I forgot to take a before photo but here is the after.

I am so happy with the results of this hair color and next time I will buy five or six boxes of it to make sure that I get the color that I want because sometimes they run out of your favorite color.

This is a good product to donate to your local women's shelter along with other products from Dollar Tree.

Dollar Tree, you have yourself a winner right here!

I am a lover of all things beautiful and that includes art and memorabilia from the past.  There are not many retailers that carry a large array of memorabilia but I found one online.  Retro Planet will give you everything that you are looking for.

This online shop has Marilyn Monroe Memorabilia, Elvis, retro Coco- Cola products, James Dean memorabilia and much, much, more!

Retro Planet even carry the retro salt and pepper shakers that our Grandma had on her marble kitchen table.   I wish that I had saved a lot of products that we had used back-in-the-day.  My grandchildren sure would have had a great laugh at those products.  One thing for sure, they were well made!

People had a lot of pride back then and thank goodness we can still purchase these products and enjoy them.

You can even throw your friends a retro themed party with all your favorite 1980 characters and have a great time.

You can also get yourself a beautiful bottle, Diner sign like this one.

Remember to always enjoy life to the fullest!

How to keep Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter from ruining your work ethic.

Mobile Phone, Smartphone, Keyboard, App

When you are on social media you use many tools to promote yourself and your go to social media sites are Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

I am involved in some Facebook groups but I find myself getting caught up in the activities in the groups that do not involve promoting myself such as; chatting with others and checking out the latest fashions or staying on these sites too long instead of concentrating on my social media efforts.

You definitely have to support others so they will support you but you have to time yourself on these sites because they can definitely consume all of your time.  I have mentioned this before but the best thing that you can use is a daily planner to keep a check on your schedule for the day so you can get a lot more done instead of being involved in time wasters.

Make sure to check your email a few times a day to check on promotions or pertinent emails that you have to reply back to.

I know that this is a hard one but stay off your cell phone unless it is involving work activities or emergencies.  Leave chatting with friends to do later in the day after work hours.

Don't waste too much time shopping and browsing when you are supposed to get that important work assignment out.

If you are involved in blogging, bring your camera everywhere you go to get the perfect picture at that perfect time to store in your camera until you create that great blog post.

Keep from being on Instagram all day comparing yourself to other people when you can be working on yourself.

Share some tweets on Twitter and then get off the site because many of those tweets that you read are very interesting and you will find yourself on Twitter for hours.

Don't get involved in any Facebook drama because you must think of every person that you meet whether it is online or in person, a business prospect.

Respect other peoples time so they will respect yours in return!

LA's Totally Awesome Ultra Deluxe liquid dish detergent in Lavender.

Hello, everyone, do you want a nice big bottle of dish detergent that is totally effective in removing greasy mess from your dishes?  Well, all you have to do is go to Dollar Tree and pick up this great product.

I have been using the green version of this dish detergent for years and I love that I don't have to do any heavy scrubbing to my dishes to get them clean. You get a full 50 ounces for one dollar. 

I have also used this dish detergent for cleaning my counters, toilets and also use as a pre-treater for my laundry when I have come upon a difficult stain.

People have also said that they use this dish detergent to clean their car tires and to wash walls in their homes.

The only con I can think of is, this product is a bit watery but it works so well and it does not have a strong scent but that is good for those of us who are allergic to strong scents.

Do I think this product is as good as the leading brands?  I would have to say that it isn't very concentrated but I still get a good amount of use out of this size bottle.  It fits the bill for my cleaning routine so I am very happy with it.

Try this product and let me know what you think about it.

Do you really think you are too cute for Dollar Tree?

Do you really think you are too cute for Dollar Tree?

Dollar Tree is a great store because you can find so many great household buys.  You can stop in there and get snacks for your kids, laundry care, hair care, and etc.

This store can be used for you to make your own creations for a good price.  Let's just step out of the box for a minute.  Dollar Tree has so many cleaning products and if you wanted to start a small cleaning business, you have everything at your disposal at Dollar Tree.

I know a lot of people who snicker and turn their nose up at Dollar Tree and other dollar stores because they think all the products are made cheaply or they do not perform as well as some of the other name brand products out there.

There are some products that are made cheaply but you can weed through those and get your hands on some products that really work.  I recently bought a big body wash at Dollar Tree and the fragrance was very mild but for my Eczema riddled skin, this body wash was definitely a good product for me to try.

The main purpose that we are really trying to achieve is to have clean skin and to smell clean.  Some of these "anti-dollar store snobs" are the ones that do not have two coins to rub together because they spend money without thinking.

These folks think that they are too good for a dollar store but they are constantly begging and asking you for your money; what a disgrace!

When it boils down to it, you can buy whatever you want and especially if you have the financial means to do so but if your pockets are empty, you need to train your mind to think differently when it comes to finances.

For instance,  why buy the ten dollar shampoo when you can buy two big bottles of shampoo and it will cost one dollar each and it works well on your hair.  Those two bottles will last you a few months.

It all boils down to having priorities and figuring out what is really important and think about what you can cut down on and what to actually spend money on.

There are some products that you do want to spend a little extra on but shopping at Dollar Tree will help you to cut down on your weekly or monthly budget by half.

At Home Teeth Whitening: Does It Work?( Giveaway Closed)

At Home Teeth Whitening: Does It Work?

Create a great smile with Smile Brilliant!
#AD Sponsored, I received product to try out and review.  All opinions are my own.
 Growing up with bad teeth was extremely difficult. I was teased and treated less than a human being because my teeth were and are crooked.

It definitely was not easy! I promised myself that one day, I would get my smile fixed, but because of family and other obligations, I was never able to do so.

It is not easy to secure employment or opportunities if your smile is less than perfect.  In fact, I was passed over better jobs because of my smile.

 I was contacted by a wonderful company,Smile Brilliant to try their product.  It was very easy to take the impressions and send back the impressions.  All you have to do is mix the Catalyst and the Base together in your hand and not over mix so it doesn't get hard too fast.

Then you put the impression material into the tray and put into your mouth and do not bite down so you can get a great impression the first time.

When I opened the "Smile Brilliant" box, I was so impressed by the Desensitizing Gel and the Teeth Whitening Gel. I told myself " Now I am able to smile brilliantly without shame."

Smile Brilliant is extremely, affordable and it could be the solution that you have been waiting for!

Preparing my Smile Brilliant Trays

                                                        Here are my whitening trays.

                                                        This is my before and after photos.




As you can see in my before photo, it is not terribly stained but you can see that it is more beige looking and the after picture, my teeth looks more white and clear and it really stands out.

Check out Smile Brilliant to see what this product can do for your smile.
"Smile Brilliant" is a great solution to get that bright and gorgeous smile that you have always wanted.

Smile Brilliant is great to use to whiten your teeth but it is also very important to use if you are going to an interview or you want to whiten your teeth before your wedding.

Look how white my smile is!  Smile Brilliant is truly amazing!
This system is very affordable and you can that "White, Bright, smile" that you have always wanted."
