Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue

I received my Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue full size bottles yesterday from Influenster. I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster's program.

The Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue system was developed specifically to nurture scalp and dry/damaged hair with intensive care, leaving hair up to 10X Stronger in Just Four Washes. Because of the carefully balanced combination of ingredients in the formula, Damage Rescue delivers both, intensive hair and scalp care with the proven anti-dandruff efficacy of Head & Shoulders.
The smell is a very suttle hint of peach. Smells really good though! My only concern with Head & Shoulders is that the back of the bottles said that it's safe for permed and colored hair (I used head & shoulders to remove dark blue and purple from my hair and it worked) so I will be calling to see if this formula has the same as the others. If so then I will be sharing this with a family member and doing a review based on the results I am seeing from their hair. Thank you to @Influenster and @HeadandShouldersforwomen for sending me this amazing product to try out!

About This Product

The Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue system was developed specifically to nurture the scalp AND dry damaged hair with intensive care, leaving hair up to 10X Stronger in Just Four Washes. Because of the carefully balanced combination of ingredients in the formula, Damage Rescue delivers both, intensive hair and scalp care with the proven anti-dandruff efficacy of Head & Shoulders.

Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Shampoo

-In today’s life, a variety of environmental factors and lifestyle habits can increase the risk of hair damage and scalp discomfort in addition to dandruff (which occurs in about 50% of the population).
-Damage Rescue Shampoo was developed to improve the condition of your scalp and keep your hair strong against breakage, reducing hair damage up to 70% vs. a non-conditioning shampoo.

Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Conditioner

-Damage Rescue Conditioner with Vitamin E contains the highest level of moisturizing ingredients in a Head & Shoulders line.
-The rich formula has 25% more protective moisturizing ingredients than the original Classic Clean conditioner, to help undo the damage to smoothness and protect hair from future damage.
-It was specifically developed to help dry/damaged hair by retaining moisture and improving hair flexibility.

Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Regimen

-The Damage Rescue Shampoo & Conditioner formula provides a protective coating of the hair surface that helps prevent further hair damage for frizz control all day vs. non-conditioning shampoo.
-The carefully balanced blend of caring ingredients smoothes the hair surface to improve tactile smoothness and softness to give your hair a healthy look.
-And – of course – both Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner deliver the anti-dandruff effectiveness of the H&S HydraZinc technology that starts to reduce flaking from the first use.

In the box there are 20 upper and lower strips. They are in the same foil packaging, 2 strips per packet. I will give a updated review this weekend, when I have fully tested out these strips. Even better, my mom is going to try them out as well.

Bow Wow HELP

It's been over a year since I have rescued my new min pin Ace (the chocolate/red one) It's by far the best decision I have made. I wanted to get a companion for Kaizer (the full red one) and Ace was a perfect match. They looked identical in person, the moment we went to Pet Pals Animal shelter and Ace came in the room, it was an instant bond.
The problem that was thrown at us was Ace has Hip Dysplasia, you can see how he doesn't tuck in his back right leg. Pet Pals took care of the problem and Ace is fine now, but the supplements we have been giving him, are getting expensive and even with pet insurance it's still pricey, so I was wondering if any of my lovely blogger friends have pets and give them joint supplements had any idea of a good brand I should try? 
please let me know :)

Follow The White Rabbit



Tim Shumate has done it again. He has finally released Alice. He also has her being printed on limited edition pillows from Artofwhere. She is by far (along with Ariel and Sally) my favorite!!!!!!! <3 Just 2 hours after Tim released Alice, I had to get down to my favorite shop Foolish Pride in St. Petersburg, FL. My artist TJ Hal is the one responsible for my amazing sleeve. I have Ariel, Sally and Tink all outlined & colored. Alice will be colored on October 1st. Can't wait to finish my sleeve! Below is a picture of my outline.
I know I have been slacking on my blogs due to being sick...but I will be getting back into the groove this weekend.

Tim Shumate Illustrations

I wanted to change my blog up a bit and tell you guys about this amazing artist! Tim Shumate. Now I have reviewed his work on my YouTube channel, but just in case no one saw my channel I wanted to talk about him here. Tim Shumate is an amazing illustrator from Chicago. I have been a fan of his work for quite sometime now. The collection of Tattooed Disney Princesses is what made him popular. His artwork is like nothing I have seen before. His line work, and colorization is amazing and the detail he puts into his pieces is so amazing it will blow you away.

 Here are two pieces to the left of course you know that is Ariel - the start of my sleeve. Instead of adding other original characters he did a mock of flounder. Ariel is by far the most popular princess he has done, if you go to his facebook page: www.facebook.com/timshumateillustrations he has a album titled tattoos, you will see what I am talking about. So many people have put their own twist or kept it like the original artwork for their tattoos. The cool thing that Tim did for every princess is, he gave them tattoos that involved their themes from the movies. Ariel is nautical themed.


To the right you have Belle, Belle of course is from The Beauty and The Beast. She even has Beast, a moon and the rose in the glass lid tattoed on her. You see what I mean, keeping the theme alive with each character.  
 
Think about it, we all grew up watching Disney movies and falling in love with the characters. I know that some of the ladies he has drawn are not princesses, the way I title them are the leading/popular ladies of Disney. I have fallen in love with his work, so in love that I have a sleeve dedicated to it. Each princess taught us something different, if you look at it in a positive way, some may think a negative way, But HEY to each is own. I will post a blog showing my update sleeve, as we continue adding to it. Right now, Ariel is complete, Tink is complete and Sally (Nightmare Before Christmas) is also complete. We are adding snow white next and Alice (which Tim is working on right now) next. I can't wait til my arm is complete!

Every lady has a banner or two with a famous quote from the movies. This just ties the whole thing in together.


To the left we have Sally (The Nightmare Before Christmas) her quote is: "I sense there's something in the wind" from her song in the movie "Sallys Song" The Nightmare Before Christmas is a by far my favorite movie! I love how Tim made her dark and mysterious, even if she is a rag doll.
Here are two pieces of Aurora "Sleeping Beauty" Tim made on in pink and the other in blue. She was another that was by popular demand.
Tim sells his pieces on a few websites: www.society6.com/timshumate is where you can purchase; Iphone cases, skins for iphone, ipods and laptops. Prints, canvas prints, stickers, hoodies, shirts and cards. www.redbubble.com/people/timshumate stickers and shirts, and iphone cases as well. Tim is working with a company called PrintsOnWood - they take artwork and print them on different types of wood. Truly amazing. Tim decided that the next collection of Disney ladies will be printed on limted addition pieces of wood. He is currently working on Alice from Alice In Wonderland, and then Cinderella & Pocahontas.
If you love throw pillows, to accent your room, living room or day bed, then you will love that Tim teamed up with ArtofWhere to print 50 limited addtion pillows for each piece of artwork he submits to be printed. http://www.artofwhere.com/index.php/artists/index/artistprofile/id/39 on artofwhere if you don't have a iphone you have a Samsung S3 or S2 you can purchase your cellphone cases on there as well.


Last but not least I leave you with a preview of what's to come from Tim. Here is a sample photo of ALICE!!!!!! <3>

Sweet Macaron!


Hello! So....I took advantage of the B&BW 2 for $20 3 Wick Candle sale. I purchased Sweet Macaron and Paris Amour.

When you first smell Sweet Macaron you get a very overwhelming scent. Your nose and brain are trying to figure out what scent to grab onto first. At first I couldn't stand the smell, I didn't even consider purchasing this but I figured it would smell different once I burn it and it does. The two scents that stand out completely are Vanilla extract and Rasberry Jam. It smells like a bakery in my room!

Inspired by a classic treat, this irresistible scent is a fragrant mosaic of French cookie raspberry jam, almond extract, vanilla cream and light lemon.

Candles from Bath and Body Works burn for approximately 30 to 45 hours.

If you guys have never tried a Macaron, I think you should consider it! So many flavors in different colors!

Bath & Body Works NEW & Improved Shower Gel

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster's VoxBox program. The Latina Beauty VoxBox 2012. 

Bath & Body Works has re-released these favorite scents (and many others now) with a new Shea enriched formula. The new formula gives you softer, and cleaner skin. The scent lasts even longer now! I love that the shower gel lathers to a thicker, fluffy foam! Influenster sent me Sweet Pea. Sweet Pea is a old favorite scent of mine, I feel that it is targeted to a younger audience and thats fine, I prefer Twilight Woods and Secret Wonderland! I have to give Bath & Body Works an A+ for this new formula. Not only has Bath & Body Works changed the formula, they are changing the look of their bottles! Brand new designs. 

One thing that I love about the new formula of the shower gels is the BUBBLES! Nothing is better then lighting a bunch of candles (my favorite right now is Sweet Macaron) and soaking in a hot bubble bath!

These Liquid Lipshines are available in 10 trendy colors from nudes to berries & fuscsias. A very affordable gloss found at any shopping store or drug store. The price is $2.49 for this gloss. .

The color I received in my VoxBox was Nude York City - I tried on the color right away, I will admit I did not like the color on me, but the way this gloss just shine and how moisturizing it was made me go out and purchase Prospect Pink and City's Clear. These glosses are the perfect size for on the go and no touch ups were needed. I went out with a group of friends and they kept stealing my gloss! There is a perfect shade for everyone. I honestly hope that NYC comes out with more shades ( I hope in the red family) I would love to see what they can do with a bright ruby red color. I love these glosses and can't wait to see more. Remember though that a little goes a long way with these. Do not apply to much or else the formula can get a bit tacky. That is my only con about this product. The rest is up for you to decide! Great product for a great price!

VEET wax strips

Wickee review! Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. Latina Beauty VoxBox 2012

VEET ready to use wax strips! I had to say that at first I was a little on edge about waxing my legs (bad past experiences) I loved how organized everything was in the box and the directions are very simple. Inside the box contains 40 full size wax strips and 6 wipes. The wipes are Almond Oil. I will say that they are on the greasy side, so I would advise to use them after you wax your problem areas.

The day after I received my Voxbox - I used these strips on my mother and myself. One wax packet contains two strips. You take the strips and rub them between your hands to warm the wax, place the strip in the direction your hair is growing, rub the strip so that it sticks to the area, there is a pointed tab on each strip, fold the tab in between your fingers and 1,2,3 pull the strip in the opposite direction. I found that with each wax strips you can get 2 or 3 uses out of (if they're still sticky) After you wax, take a wipe packet and rub your freshly waxed area down and you have a perfect sheen and smoothness to your legs.


I will be honest and say that my legs are very sensitive and were irritated after using these strips, but my mom was just fine. If you plan on trying out these wax strips, I would advise cutting a piece of a strip and testing it out first before you jump into a full wax session.

VEET Ready to Use Wax Strips, Leg & Body

This summer, keep your skin smooth for longer with VEET® Ready-to-Use Wax Strips for Legs & Body. The strips are specially formulated to remove hair on legs, underarms and bikini area from closer to the root than shaving for smoothness that lasts up to 4 weeks.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. 

First I want to thank Influenster for sending me an amazing product to review. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen is by far my favorite product that Influenster sent in the VoxBox. I have attached my favorite beach products and Hawaiian Silk hydration made the cut! This product is not like any normal sunscreen, it's a combination product of both sunscreen and lotion. The scent (to me) because I am horrible with scents but to me this product has a bit of a light vanilla mixed with coconut scent. When I was at the pool, I applied this product and instantly it absorb to my skin. I love how smooth my skin feels and no worries about sticky feelings. I have repurchased this product. I bought a full size bottle for $5.00.


Also available in SPF 12, 30, 50!

With its ultra-luxurious hydrating silk ribbons, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ lotion sunscreen nourishes and pampers skin while providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and 12-hour moisturization when out in the sun.


Where to Buy

You can find Hawaiian Tropic products at most major retailers.
Suggested retail price: $8.99 for a 6oz bottle

First product review: two parts Always Radiant Infinity Pads and Always/Tampax Radiant Collection

Reviewing first: Always Radiant Infinity Pads: I received these products complimentary for testing and review purposes. I was not paid by Influenster, Always or Tampax for my reviews. 

Now I know that a lot of women no longer wear pads, but I honestly have to say that I was shocked when I first saw this full size box of pads in my voxbox. I have to say that when I was a lot younger I used always pads, but never stuck to it for long because of the fact, I felt like I was wearing a diaper. Now Always has completely changed the look and feel of their pads. The Always Radiant Infinity pads are super thin, they have a lite scent and the best part, you forget you are even wearing them. With this box of pads I received a $5.00 coupon inside and went ahead and purchased a back up box. (a little TMI ) pads are always great to use on your first day of your cycle. These pads are great! and Always affordable.

The 2nd item to go along with the Always pads were the Always Radiant Collection. I am in love with the pouch. Inside of the box is a adorable Purple/Hotpink pouch (little wrislet) inside of the pouch was: 1 Always Pad, 3 unscented liners, and 1 regular unscented tampon and 1 unscented super tampon. That way you can get to test out more Always/Tampax products if you ever curious. The pouch is the perfect size for any handbag. If you are out with the girls and don't want to take your whole purse with you to the restroom, or if your girlfriend need a tampon and you don't want to show the world what you are handing her, the pouch is a perfect grab and go.
