2014 Selfie

Do you have the confidence to take a selfie and post it on social media?   

This year I turned 30 so I might not fit in the trends with the teens and young 20's but I was determined to try to take a selfie and post it on social media.   

There is always that vulnerability I have with putting a close up picture of myself out there but after a dozen or so pics I finally picked this one and put it on instagram and facebook.   

It's so easy to take your phone is times of boredom and take some pictures but the dreaded selfies were and far and few between... I mean I have kids to take pictures of! 

So what is really behind a selfie?   Some say it's bad as it shows selfishness, others say it creates drama.

More than 31 million Instagram photos have been hashtagged #slefie!!!  Another shocking stat 91% of teens have posted a selfie of themselves online. 

Wowzers... that is a ton!!  So I myself took several shots before finally liking the above image enough to share it on social media.   I did have control though I could have deleted it instead!   

So what is your take on the Selfie?  Good?  Bad?  Self Esteem Building?  Jealousy enduing?   

So let me know- have you shared a selfie lately?

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
