*Holiday Gift Idea* Watch Ya Mouth Review

I have a hilariously fun game to share to share with you that kids ages 8 and up will be excited to find under the tree this year. Watch Ya Mouth Throwdown Edition is a game of Head-to Head- Mouthpiece Challenges that is going to change the way you see family game night.

The object of the game is it interpret word phrases and earn points. The only problem is, it's not quite easy making out what someone is trying to say when they have a plastic mouthpiece in their mouth, making them look and sound ridiculous. Their are also zany game challenges throughout the game making it an absolute laugh fest. 

My husband and tried the game and were an absolute hysterics trying to get the mouthpieces on, while they are quite uncomfortable at first you get used to it and the fact that you are genuinely having a good time while you are playing makes it all part of the silliness of this game. I know my nine year old daughter will absolutely love this!

Watch Ya Mouth comes in this Throwdown Edition as well as other expansion sets you can check out here. Use the code 15THROWDOWN at checkout to receive 15% off your order.

Rodan + Fields Review and Giveaway Opportunity

Hey Girly Girls! I have no doubt that Rodan + Fields has been making it on your Facebook feed a lot lately. You probably even know someone who is a consultant and raves about their products constantly. I am hear to tell you there is a reason for all the buzz, the stuff works! So let me tell you a little bit about my introduction to Rodan + Fields. My good friend Tracy, you may remember her as a Girly Girl contributor awhile back. Well, she called me one day and told me about this new business opportunity she had started, selling skincare. She mentioned how great all their products were and she was eager for me to give them a shot. At the time I checked out her website   and like I am sure many others have, thought holy cow this skincare line is pricey. Needless to say I did not buy anything at this point. Than a few weeks later I met a woman at church, her daughter and mine became friends so we introduce each other so we could plan a playdate for our girls. She handed me a card and lo and behold she was also an R + F consultant. Small world! As weeks passed I started hearing and seeing more and more about this "Life-Changing Skincare", my Facebook feed was on fire with the most unbelievable before and after photos, and one day this photo popped onto my feed. 

This photo was different because I actually knew this person, my good friend Tracy. She was promoting R + F's top seller Lash Boost.

A nightly eyelash-conditioning serum that features a unique proprietary formula that improves the appearance of lash volume and length for lashes that are 100% real, 100% yours. In weeks, you’ll be wondering if you need mascara at all. 

My first thought was no way are those her lashes, I mean I know Tracy, when we lived in Alaska I saw her daily, these are not the lashes I remember. So immediately called her up to ask her if she was lying of course, Tracy and I have that kind of relationship. After hounding her for several minutes I decided she was telling the truth and yes, I broke down and bought some Lash Boost. Guess what?! I don't regret it. My eyelashes literally started touching the tops of my eyelids after only a few weeks of using this product, I got so many compliments and people asking me if my eyelashes were real.

They are long see! Here is a closeup I just took, they are loooong. Let me tell you I have now had a change of heart when it comes to R + F prices. When you think about  all the products us ladies spend on skincare  from cleaners, toners, night creams, day creams, eye creams, etc. R + F prices actually make sense, especially when you are getting high quality products that really work. Not to mention I have several friends that started using a R + F skincare regimen and are now spending less money on makeup because their skin looks so great they just don't need it. I am planning on trying their Reverse Brightening regimen next. 

It normally retails for $190 but if you become one of Tracy's preferred customers you get it for $171! 

I have some great deals to share with you if you have been on the fence about trying Rodan + Fields. 

Tracy would like to give away 3 mini facials and 1 sample Hydration Serum to three Girly Girl readers.

Essential Foods for Healthy Winter Skin!

Winter is coming, and I have some winter skin beauty tips to share with you from Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O. Osteopathic Physician board certified in family medicine, and anti-aging medicine and proclaimed as the "The Stem Cell Guru" by the New York Daily News.

As the temperature drops, skin loses its natural moisture when faced with the cold, dry air found in winter climates. While the products you use for the transitioning weather conditions are helpful, there are natural and less expensive alternatives that will have your skin thriving without breaking the bank.  

1.     Olive Oil helps to provide your skin with healthy, unsaturated fats with anti-aging benefits. It is rich in vitamin E, and can be used to treat and prevent dry skin naturally.

2.     Avocado contains fats which help to lubricate the skin and protect it from damage, and also promote clear, youthful skin. Avocados also contain anti-aging foods properties.

3.     Oatmeal contains a large number of antioxidants, along with vitamins and minerals that improve skin health. The fibers in oatmeal also help slough away dead skin and prevent redness when applied topically.

4.     Sweet Potatoes are a great source of vitamin A, which help to lock in moisture, give your skin a healthy glow and protect it from damage.

5.     Carrots contain the carotenoids beta carotene and lycopene—both of which help shield your skin against UV damage.

6.     Grapefruit contains carotenoid, which will make your skin smooth. When buying grapefruit, opt for one with a red-pinkish hue because these colors are from lycopene and it means the fruits are loaded with carotenoids. People who have higher concentration of lycopene have smoother skin.

7.     Broccoli contains vitamin C which synthesizes collagen, a protein that keeps the skin firm helping to protect from wrinkles.

8.     Spinach and dark, leafy greens like kale are filled with iron, omega-4 fatty acids and vitamins A, B and E, which protect skin and improve your immune system. The phytochemicals and folates also help hydrate skin and keep it healthy.

9.     Coconut Oil is rich in fats and helps provide lubrication and also help prevent acne thanks to their antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.

And a couple tips from me....

Mix a little oatmeal with some warm water until it forms a paste and then spread all over your face avoiding your eyes. Leave on until it starts to dry and then rinse off with warm water. It's a great exfoliator that will leave your skin feeling super smooth!

Coconut oil is great for chapped winter lips. Rub some on and your lips will be kissably smooth in no time!

Surya Brasil Henna Cream, Healthy Hair Color Review

I first became familiar with Henna hair color as a teenager. My mom let me use it to dye my hair because it was a better version of hair color, natural without all the added chemicals. I could experiment with my hair color as teenagers often do, without any harmful effects. Plus being semi-permanent it would eventually wash out after several shampoos so I never had to commit. Recently I was sent some Surya Brasil Henna Cream for review. I had been meaning to dye my hair after I noticed a couple of gray strands pop up, I thought this was the perfect test and reintroduction to Henna hair dyes. 

Surya Brasil Henna Cream is the winner of the Best of Natural Beauty Awards.  If you are wondering what Henna is, it is a flowering plant that has been used to dye skin, hair, leather and wool for centuries. Surya Brasil Henna Cream is derived from the Henna plant and formulated with added botanicals and natural extracts to create a hair dye that not only colors but nourishes your hair. 

This anti-oxidant rich semi-permanent hair color infuses hair with lush, vibrant color while nourishing and conditioning with sustainably harvested botanicals. Every shade of Surya Brasil’s sophisticated natural color contains vegetable extracts including herbs and fruits from Brazil and India, which offer a simultaneous coloration and deep conditioning treatment for the hair as well as intense treatment for the scalp. While coloring gray on first application, Surya Brasil Henna Cream Color does NOT contain ammonia, PPD, parabens, peroxide, resorcinol, heavy metals, artificial fragrance, mineral oils, GMO’s or gluten. Like all of Surya Brasil’s products the Henna Cream is 100% vegan and cruelty free.

·        Covers grays and changes your hair color using natural ingredients instead of chemical dyes
·        Colors and conditions using a sophisticated blend of vegetable extracts, herbs and fruits
·        Boosts hair growth
·        Strengthens hair and improves elasticity
·        Locks nutrients into hair and encourages a healthier scalp
·        Helps reduce dry scalp conditions like dandruff

This stuff is really easy to use too! The Henna cream comes in a bottle that does not need to be mixed. You simply open it up, use the plastic gloves that are included with the dye and apply from roots to ends. You leave it on between 30 to 60 minutes depending on how rich of a color you want. My hair was a brown and I wanted it a very dark brown so I used the dark brown shade and left it in for 60 minutes. The result was a deep dark brown almost black. It also completely covered up the gray strands and left my hair super soft. Best of all there was no icky chemical smell! Since my hair is short I did not need the entire bottle but what is great about this Henna Cream is you can replace the cap on the bottle and use it again when you need to. Surya Brasil Henna also comes in a powder version that includes 8 different shades. 

You can purchase these online and they currently have a sale going on from now until November 27. Using the code BLACKFRIDAY you can get 40% off your order of $30 or more.
