Welcome to my review for the KMS California Hair Stay product I got to try. The company sent me a free sample so I could try it and tell you all about it. This is a really great Hair styling product. its like a freeze but without the stiffness, it has maximum hold and sprays out in a fine mist thats so easy to control and use.
I am always looking for a great holding hairspray because living in Florida on the coast its not only breezy but very humid all the time. The one thing I hate about a maximum hold spray is how long they take to dry. Once I get my hair style right I want to spray it and go, I can do this with the KMS California Hair Stay because it drys right away. Their is no sitting around trying to keep still waiting for the spray to dry and set. This is really the fastest drying hair spray I have ever used and I have used a whole lot of them.
KMS California Hair Stay, also has technology in it to keep humidity from frizzing up the hair which is great for me because my hair is so naturally frizzy. I really love this spray and will continue to use it. it is leaps and bounds better than what I was using and my hair feels great and has bounce but stays in place. I hope you give it a try.
You can find it to buy it here Beauty Care Choices
I did a video review for this one so you can see packaging and just how nice it looks on my hair thanks for reading my review

I was able to read Through the Deep waters by Kim Vogel Sawyer, through blogging for books. I think this is my favorite book by this writer . I have read many books By Kim Vogel Sawyer but this one was just a perfect Christian fiction that was both inspirational and entertaining.
This is the story of a young woman named Dinah, she was raised in a Chicago brothel and is the daughter of a prostitute. Her dream is to become a Harvey Girl waiting tables along the railroad. She longs for the respectability that comes with this position because Harvey Girls are required to be hardworking and pure.
I really loved the development of Dinah in this story, she is a girl that was never told anything about God or Christ and as she tries her best to fit into a new lifestyle, she is not sure she will ever be worthy of being a Harvey Girl . Since she is only 17 and she Must be 18 to be selected as Harvey Girl she takes a job as a maid at a hotel. Here she find people who want to be her friend but she is so fearful they will discover her past that she deliberately keeps her distance.
Dinah has a terrible secret, If anyone should find out about it she would loose her dream of becoming a Harvey Girl and any possibility of a home and family.
This book has everything a Christian fiction story should have in it . I am so happy I got to read it and have it for my library. Thanks for reading my review.

I was able to try this new Purex product through Purex insiders. I think its a great idea to have on hand for those days when you are just way to rushed to sort clothing properly. I found it works really well. What it has in it is Anti-Color Transfer Technology. It traps loose dyes and reduces color bleeding accidents.
I received a bottle of this to try and a coupon to giveaway so someone will be able to try this new Laundry detergent for themselves.
This one has a pleasant scent and cleans the laundry very nicely and you can find it at your grocer I saw it at my Publix a few days ago so its easy to find.
I did a short video review for it so you could see packaging and my thoughts about it.Please also enter my giveaway through the raffle copter below thanks for looking.

Welcome to my personal review for a new way to buy designer/ name brand fashion on the cheap. This New Online store is called THRED UP
and it is a place where you can buy some really nice used clothing for less.
I came across this recently because I signed up for their mailing list and got a 10.00 off a first purchase coupon. I thought I would give it a try and see what I got. I was able to find 7 beautiful items and apply my 10.00 off coupon along with free shipping on orders over 50.00. My final total was less than 43.00.
I just got all of them in today and thought I would unpack the box with photos and select a few items to do video review for. I am really not use to doing a stand up video so please ignore the look of sheer terror I have on my face LOL.
I really love the items I got!!! Since gaining a bit of weight, I have not been able to really wear my nicer things lately so I went shopping for something to wear that would look nice but not cost me a fortune.
I am doing this review so you can see quality and how packaging is done and how the items look on me. This way you can make an informed decision about buying from the company or maybe even selling some of your nicer things.
The other great thing about THRED UP
is you can also send them your used clothing and they will look them over and if its something they buy they will put them up so someone else can buy them. If you do send things be sure they are items that the company will buy because other wise they will be donated or recycled. If you want your items back you would have to pay for return shipping, so keep that in mind. You dont have to do anything but pack up a bag they send you and than wait to see how much they will pay for them.
Does have a tool so you can see what your items may be worth, so be sure and check that out first.
I really had fun looking at all the items that are for sale at very good prices and now they have a collection of even higher end items available . You can get shoes, dresses, tops and just about anything there, its a really great way to get some pretty things without spending to much. When you see the quality of the Items I bought you will agree.
One of the other reasons I am posting this review is because I do know how hard it is to find acceptable work wear when you are on a budget. I thought this would be great for someone like me who wants to look nice and have name brand clothing yet does not have a boat load of cash to put into it.
Anyway here are the pictures of what I bought and some videos of me wearing some of the items so you can see just how nice these are.
This is the top layer of the items
This is the next Layer
This photo is of the last casual shirt I got its really silky so I pit it on the lid of the box so you could see detail.
OK, now I did a few videos wearing some of my favorites in this box the first is a Courtenay blazer. I paid 8.49 for it. Please try and put up with me I am not use to doing video standing up and with what I have to work with this is the best I could do. I have to admit I was a bit nervous doing these but I really wanted you to see them.
In This video I am wearing a Kim Rogers Henley shirt it is like new and just right for me. This one cost me 6.49
This video is for a Liz Claiborne Golf Cardigan This one cost a whopping (lol) 5.49 it is in perfect condition.
Here is a copy of my packing slip for this order I sure hope you can see the fantastic low prices I paid for these items thanks for looking at my review:)
