Huffy Deluxe 26″ Ladies’ Bike Review

Some of my favorite memories as a kid are when I was on my bike.  It was exhilarating to pedal as fast as I could on my hot pink, glittery barbie bike.  The neon handle bar tassels blowing behind me and my wheels clicking from the beads sliding on my tire spokes.  I loved that bike, my only wish to make it extra awesome was for it to have a basket.  That bike was a-mazing.  I haven't been on a … [Read more...]

Sports Illustrated Kids Big Book of Who: Football (Review)

amika Obliphica Color PHerfection Shampoo

Confession:  I am a hair product hoarder.  My poor husband gets only about 1/4th of the shower shelf.  Or bathroom space in general.  (Poor guy...this also applies to our closet)  I had heard of amika hair products before and had only heard great things.  My sister is actually in love with their hair straightener. I'm pretty particular about my shampoo and conditioner.  I color my hair and most … [Read more...]
