Splat Hair Chalk and Ombre Collection

I have always loved coloring my hair. I like to go from blonde to pink to brown, but I tend to usually fall into the blonde range. Sometimes when I am feeling fun, I want a product I can put in quickly and I don't have to worry about washing it out. That's when I use Splat Hair Chalk. It's perfect because it's temporary, and I can use it wherever I want.

Splat Hair Chalk is temporary hair color for a day, a beautiful way to add pastel color highlights to your hair. The chalk slides on dry and instantly adds just the right touch of color. The compact is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand so it is easy to hold onto and apply to hair. The result is soft color that is easy to brush, curl or style after application and is easily washed out with shampoo! You can highlight your hair with a different color every day. The applicator sponge is included for easy application close to your hair-line or when applying color to your braid. Kit Includes: 1 Compact of Splat Hair Chalk & 1 Applicator Sponge.

Then, there are the times when I want more for my hair. More color, make it last longer, brighter, obvious. I am really looking forward to trying the Splat Ombre Love (the pink one up there!) because I think with my light hair, it will be beautiful. I have to wait a few weeks for the other color I have in now though, over coloring can be damaging! I will be sure to update once it's done. 

You can purchase Splat products online or at your local retail store.

Bakerly Products are a Great Treat for Kids and Parents!

My kids and I have been noticing this line of products in the store for a while now. I wasn't sure what to make of the crepes when I saw them. I wondered how they would taste, and since I am really picky, I didn't try them. I wish I had! The people at Bakerly sent me a box of goodies to try, and here is what we thought.

Bakerly Crepes. These are SO good. This is definitely my favorite. The Crunchy Crepes with a Hazelnut Chocolate Filling. It tastes like a thin pancake drenched in Nutella. I have been eating them for breakfast, afternoon snacks, before bed snacks. I can't get enough!

The Crepes are available in several flavors as well, like chocolate and strawberry. The kids really love the strawberry, and I LOVE that they are good right out of the package! So easy. 

The Brioche Rolls are AMAZING. I sliced them and served with turkey and cheese. The sweetness of the brioche was perfect. My favorite thing about them is that they are : 
  • authentic french recipe
  • no preservatives
  • no artificial coloring
  • no artificial flavoring
  • no high fructose corn syrup

Last but not least. The Sliced Brioche. We used it to make french toast and grilled cheese. SO good! I love the whole line of Bakerly products, and I hope you get a chance to check them out too. We buy ours at Publix!

New Products From Etch a Sketch! Freestyle and Joystick

Etch a Sketch has been around since I can remember. It was the classic car toy of my generation. My mom wanted to keep me busy in the car, she handed me the Etch a Sketch and I would go crazy. Now, with kids using devices in the car, it's a lot of screen time. I think it's time to get back to the past, and hand the kids the Etch a Sketch. With the 2 new products, it's going to be easy!

The next generation has a new classic to play with! Introducing Etch A Sketch Freestyle: a toy from the past transformed for the future. Designed exclusively for young artists, the Freestyle comes with a handy stylus that’s easy to grip and move. Kids can express their creativity without any messy clean up. Simply draw, shake to erase, and draw again – just like you did! Only now, your child has a whole new world of etching possibilities to discover. Alternate between thick and thin lines or use the double-sided stampers to add hearts, circles, stars and clouds to doodles. Since inspiration can strike anywhere, the classic red frame of the original has been flattened into a sleek and lightweight drawing pad. Throw it in a backpack and take it on a trip! Get creative, wherever you are, with the Etch A Sketch Freestyle!

Spark creativity and bring out your little one’s inner artist with the Etch A Sketch Joystick. This paperless drawing pad is a modern take on the iconic toy. Updated for younger artists, the two dials at the bottom of the frame are now one easy-to-use joystick that swivels 360 degrees! Toddlers will develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination drawing loops, lines and circles. When it’s time to begin again, simply shake to erase! With no clean up needed, this drawing pad gives kids the freedom to delve into their creativity and express themselves, even at a young age. Since little hands can only hold so much, the iconic red frame of the original has been transformed into a vertical design, so kids can hold and doodle. Introduce your toddler to the joy of drawing with the Etch A Sketch Joystick!

You can pick up both products on Amazon or in your local Toys 'r Us store. We are definitely using ours on our trip across the country this fall!
