Gel it up!

This is my favorite nail maintenance product. This gel top coat can be used on natural, acyclic, or gel nails. It gets rock hard like hard candy which protects your color from fading, clipping, and dulling. When I do my little monkey's nails with decorative art work. I always apply a gel top coat to ensure she doesn't ruin all my efforts by playing outside, or on the monkey bars. The only problem is it requires a UV light to cure for 5 minutes, and the nail polish must be completely dry before applying gel top. I recommend any nail lover to invest in a gel top coat, and UV light.

Fav Books for Boys

These are the book series that really helped my oldest monkey start reading constantly everyday. When a new edition came out he still wanted to read the latest version.
He's 13 now and still enjoys these books.

Gone With the Wind

I've had this book laying around the house for years, but I've never read it. Lately I've been reading a lot of classic novels, so I finally decided to pick up this thick book. I'm so glad I did. It's been one of the best books I've read. I feel like I'm back in time like one of those excited readers dying to see the epic film. I can understand now why this film was like the Star Wars of it's generation. The movie is one of my favorites, but the book explained in depth the characters, their challenges, and the customs of the old South. It made me love Scarlette O' Hara even more.

The mother of all flat irons

My friend Leticia won the Joico K-Pak Reconstructor Vapor Iron from a school competition. Wow, it's amazing. I couldn't believe how shiny, straight, and soft this made hair look and feel. Most flat irons damage your hair, and eventually causes split ends. This iron uses a conditioning vapor to deep condition, and lock in antioxidants into your hair. It helps maintain your color longer, and reduces split ends by 40%. If your a flat iron user you should check it out. It's amazing.

Hair Bling

Hair Tinsel is a fun way to live up your hair at any age. I've been using it for clients after color services. It's great for parties, and embracing the holiday seasons. I order my tinsel from the internet site Hair Flair. I used many tie-in techniques, but I like wetting the hair first. It's easier to install strands, and it seem to hold a little longer. It's a great way to earn a little extra cash.
