Friday Flair With Choca!!!

Pin It
Hey all!!!

So today, Choca decided she wanted to rock one of the new crocheted hats that my husband had made for her (Shout out to Brittany @ Britt's Knits for her amazing crocheting skills).  I paired her black, yellow and white hat with ALL VINTAGE ITEMS: a cute white tank, jean capri pants and a simple jean jacket.  She wanted to finish it off with her pink sandals (that's her FAVORITE COLOR), so I obliged that request!!!

AND... here is her flair for this beautiful Friday:

How cute is she this lovely Friday!?!?!? :) 

I hope you all enjoyed this cute little post as much as she enjoyed posing for it! LOL

Refreshing Choca's Twists!!! :)

Pin It
Hey all,

So... Choca has been rocking this style for about 1 1/2 weeks now... 

As of a couple of days ago, it was looking like this:

Now, although it was still really cute, it was FRIZZY!! My goodness... This weather (hot, cold, rainy, burning hot) has her hair going through a metamorphosis.  It's growing really well.. But, it does tend to dry out a bit more when the weather is all over the place. 

Sooooooooooooooooooo... I decided to redo her hair style... I updated the braids a bit, and used a different mixture of products to give her that protective covering her hair needs in this weather... 

What did I use, you ask?!?! 



Let me tell you... This mixture really made her hair extra soft and curly!!! It was very easy to finger detangle and moisturized her hair amazingly!

The finished product:

I changed up the braid design a bit.

Can you see the shine?!?!? AND... The Little Miss Fuzzy Head has a nice, thick consistency that keeps Choca's hair coated and protected from the elements!!! We shall see how it looks in a week!! :)

As you can see, she's overjoyed with it... 

WIN/WIN!! :)

Product Review: Butterfly Bakery

Pin It
Hey all,


So, I was given the PLEASURE (truly) of reviewing some goodies from THE BUTTERFLY BAKERY!

From The Website:

Butterfly Bakery is located in the Metro New York Area in Northern New Jersey.  Our factory is outfitted with state-of-the-art baking equipment and a dedicated team of employees who lovingly produce our delicious baked-from-scratch, SUGAR FREE and NO SUGAR ADDED baked goods.

We use only the finest ingredients and the freshest fruit nectars to sweeten and enhance the flavors of every product we bake for a more intense taste experience.  Everything from our muffins to our cookies to our cakes are the highest quality possible.  The kind of quality you can taste.  And of course, we wouldn't think of using preservatives. 

We're pretty proud of our SUGAR FREE and NO SUGAR ADDED line of products because they're lower in calories, carbohydrates and fat, but high in extraordinary taste and texture.   But the most wonderful thing is that you'll never know they're SUGAR FREE and NO SUGAR ADDED! In fact, we guarantee our quality...and your satisfaction.

My Review:

The products that I was given to try were:

Okay... When I tell you that these were the most DELICIOUS goodies I've ever had, I am NOT exaggerating!! The sweetness factor of both of these items was truly on the money.  The Double Chocolate Chip Muffins were EXTREMELY moist and thick and so very tasty!! My gosh... And the cookies?!?!? The Chocolate Chip Cookies were to die for!!! It's hard to explain how AMAZINGLY delightful these goodies were.  Also, they were SHIPPED to me through the mail, and didn't lose ANY of their taste or moistness!! Truly a great find!

I can't say ANYTHING negative about these amazing products, with the exception of, "I WISH THERE WAS MORE!!!" 
They are truly fantastic!

AND, to show how even MORE amazing this company is, they have provided me with a coupon to share with you all.  Do you Amazon?? If you do, this coupon will give you a discount on buying such deliciousness!! Don't hesitate to use it, folks!!


Also, for my SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA folks, these wonderful products can be found in Albertson's Grocery Store!!

Our Review:
Now, I'm one of those folks who ALWAYS wore a grocery bag of some sort on my head when deep conditioning my hair or giving myself hot oil treatments.  The regular shower caps (the thin plastic ones) always tore on my head and were not big enough to encompass all of the hair that I had (whether it be my own or extensions).  So, when I got these shower caps, I was AMAZED.  

They are a very THICK  plastic that is VERY heavy duty and can hold lots of hair/product inside.  They are tight enough around our heads to keep whatever products we have on our heads inside, but not too tight where it cuts off our circulation.  They are BIG on our heads as well... 

They are REUSABLE as well!!! 
I HIGHLY recommend these shower caps, folks!!! You will NOT be disappointed.  They are not uncomfortable either.  I was totally able to take care of business around my home for the three hours I DC'd my hair in this cap... No issues!!

 Living in a house with babies that have eczema, I was really excited to try these products on them.  We have been searching for some products that would help keep their skin moisturized, without making them have an eczema flair up. 

With these products, they were able to keep themselves soft, moisturized and free of eczema flair ups. 

The smells of these products were VERY strong.  Each of them have a very distinctive smell (true to their name) and are VERY fragrant. However, they still did their job, and did NOT make our allergies flair up either!! :) 

Overall, this product is very good and does as it says it will.  It softens the skin and keeps it moisturized VERY well! :) 

Please check out their FACEBOOK and their WEBSITE!!

I hope you find this review useful and helpful! :)
