At a loss as to how to tame your multi-racial child's curls ? I've got the products for you

When my son turned one we took him for his first haircut at one of those speciality "kiddie cut" salons. Although, we opted to have the stylist shave his hair down she preserved a little curl and then added some product to enhance what little curl he did have left. Stepping back and looking at how adorable he was with his tiny tight curls I asked her what she'd just put in his hair.

It was at that time that I was introduced to the hair nectar of the Gods. Moist Curls.

I soon began using it on my daughter whose hair is incredibly curly and can be challenging.

I once read that curly hair is dry hair, my daughter is no exception. Moist curls keeps the dryness at bay, protects her curls from the elements , has a nice light fragrance and isn't heavy or greasy like other products I've tried. Seriously, I use it morning noon and night and of late have been pairing it with my second fave product from the Curly Qs line, Princess Glaze. Princess Glaze gives her that additional shine and hold and helps tremendously with the end of day frizzies that tend to creep up.

Curly Q's has a great product line that takes you from shampoo to style all made with natural ingredients and not tested on animals. We've tried them all (love,love, love the Coconut Dream conditioner) and honestly you can't go wrong with any of them.

And guess what ? I'd like to share their magnificence with all of you. Head on over there check out their products then come back and tell me your thoughts and you'll be entered to win your very own Curly Qs sample kit but be sure to enter by by September 12.

Fry-delicious! Or why we now think Burger King Rules

"Fry-delicious" was my 5 year old daughters proclamation after having tried Burger King's new Apple Fries.

My kids have always been fans of apples so when I was asked to try out BK's new Apple Fries I readily agreed. First, let me say that BK doesn't half step. Our samples arrived packed in a quality reusable lunch pack perfectly cold and incredibly crisp.

My kids,well what can I say, they scarfed those suckers down as if it were their last meal. The loved them and if they'd had it their way we'd have driven to BK that instant to grab more.

As a parent, I think Apple Fries could possibly be the most clever food product geared towards kids. Ever. No, of course they don't taste like fried potatoes but with their fun shape and tasty low fat caramel dipping sauce they offer a healthy alternative and a fun experience for the kiddos.

I can't help but wonder if another fast food joint who shall remain nameless, but rhymes with pic-ronalds, isn't jealous they didn't come up with this first.

We love Belli Skin Care

Belli Skin Care is a company I've come to know over the last several months and absolutely fall in love with. Founded by Annette and Jason Rubin, MD, Belli offers the most divine skin care products for pregnant women, new moms and babies. My family are huge fans of the talc and I'm a personal cheerleader for the eye brightening cream, but frankly you can't go wrong with any Belli products.

Their "love of pregnancy and motherhood guides everything they do" which is why all of their products are thouroughly screened so as to exclude any ingredients that could possibly be linked to pregnancy complications, birth defects and harmul effects during breastfeeding ( You know all the stuff that you as a mom to be/mom would want a company to do for you and your child).

Today Belli Launches their new website and as part of the launch party they've graciously offered my readers 30% off of everything (use code VIPBLOG30 at checkout). Believe me, you should feel special, because guess what? No one else gets that. Just you, my VIPs! So head on over there and show the Belli folks some love.

Then come back and tell me what you liked about Belli and their site and you'll be entered in a drawing to win the eye brightening cream and the All Day Moisture lotion.
