Caza Trail’s Donut Shop Blend K-cups Coffee #MC

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sturm Foods, Inc. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating

Here is the HUGE box of Caza Trail Donut Shop Blend K-cups my hubby had to buy (he actually bought 2) after our sample ran out.

My husband and I love coffee, especially as a way to savor the few quite moments we may have on frantic mornings. We recently taught Matthew how to use our Keurig machine and he loves to make my coffee in the morning. I think he does it so he can have a sip “just to test it out”. I was recently given a sample of Caza Trail’s Donut Shop Blend K-cups and Matthew would brew me and my husband a cup each morning. Sometimes twice. It is so good that once that small box was used up, my husband headed over to Amazon and ordered two more, gigantic boxes. Yep, their are gone too! Nothing compares to a beautiful cup of coffee on a cold and snowy day, especially if it is as exceptional as Caza Trail’s Donut Shop Blend.

Here is my empty HUGE box of Caza Trail's Donut Shop Blend K-cups. It went too quickly.

Going Grey Update with a New Grey Haircut

grey haircut

I’ve successfully been grey for several months now and have really been enjoying it. But as my 44th birthday is approaching I have been starting to feel my age and more importantly I have been thinking about regrets. I don’t want to have regrets over anything as I age. I used to spend a lot of time doing and being what other people wanted me to be. And somehow I sort of forgot what I wanted to be. I started to realize that I only have this one shot at life and I should live it and love it and in general have no regrets. (Of course there are limits, I have to follow social rules and laws and such, but I don’t have to worry about what others think or want from me outside of my responsibilities.) So I opted for a haircut that I think it really cool, and very outside the norm for a mom of 3 living in the suburbs, and whom is also the PTA President of her children’s elementary school! Take a peek at the cut and let me know what you think.

Best Buy for the Holidays #bbyHoliday13 My Letter To Santa

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

Dear Santa,

I have been VERY good this year. I have worked really hard and tried to be the best mommy I could be. I went on a diet, but I’ll still bake you Christmas cookies and leave you them with some yummy chocolate milk on Christmas Eve. I made sure my kids had their favorite lunches each day, did laundry at least once a month, and helped the boys with their homework. I think overall I deserve to be on the NICE list this year. So if you agree I’m including MY Christmas Wish List – almost all of it can be found at Best Buy this year!

  1. I’d love the new Fitbit Force to help with my weightloss goals
  2. The Krups BeerTender would be perfect for our News Years Eve Party
  3. A new Apple iPhone to help me stay in touch with my family
  4. Microsoft Surface Pro so I can find Joy with new Tech Toys
  5. A Best Buy Gift Certificate so I can just drop in and buy whatever I want. They have more choices, more savings and more gifts than I can decide on right now.
  6. Omega Juicer for that cleanse we want to do

Ouidad #1 in my list of Favorite Things


Taking a cue from Oprah’s holiday list of her favorite things, I thought I’d start a similar list. I’m hoping to give you ideas for things you may want to try, for things you never thought about trying, and maybe some insight into things EVERYONE has tried.

The very first item I wanted to introduce you to is my favorite, go-to hair care collection by Ouidad. Ouidad is known for their curl defining products. As the owner of 2B curly/wavy hair (the 2B is a reference to my curl patter as defined in The Curly Girl M

ethod) I have sought out those products that help define my wave pattern and keep my curls moisturized and shiny. Curly hair is often dry, simply because of the way hair is when it is curly. It has to do with the cuticle and the curl pattern, but really all you need to know is that curly hair needs special care. And for me one of the best ways to care for my hair is with Ouidad.

I am part

icularly fond of Ouidad’s shampoo and conditioners. I usually use Ouidad Curl Quencher Moisturizing Shampoo, but recently Ouidad has launched the new Ouidad Color Sense Collection which not only helps define your curls but also helps prevent against fading if you color your hair.

Ouidad is fantastic at locking in moisture which has helped keep my hair soft. The Color Sense Color Preserving Conditioner is Sulfate and Silicone Free which is important not only to me as a consumer, but also as someone that follows The Curly Girl M

I think the other thing I really love about Ouidad is that it really is a collection of great curl enhancing products that all work together to help you create the sort of curls you want. Ouidad Curl Defining Styling Souffle is now one of my new favorite curling creams. I often use a curl enhancing cream after washing and conditioning my hair. The Ouidad Curl Defining Styling Souffle helps set the curls, reduces frizz (which I hate having), and promotes shine. My hair is very soft when I use the Ouidad Curl Defining Styling Souffle.  And as a little side note on the Ouidad Curl Defining Styling Souffle it SMELLS fantastic and has the most enjoyable texture. I really can’t describe it, but I guess the name Souffle gives you a good clue. It is simply delightful to use.ethod. Those ingredients are big no-nos.

So I hope you check out Ouidad and let me know if you think it is a great product for your curly or wavy hair. Check back soon for #2 in my list of favorite things!
