Zirh was also kind enough to send home some good stuff for my husband to try out, too. He was really excited to try it out, and loved the line. I know what I'll be buying him more of for Christmas! Shhhh, don't tell him, thanks :)

Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion - My New Favorite Shampoo & Conditioner

Last week I had a fun afternoon at Bloomingdale's in the Boca Raton Town Center Mall, as one of the bloggers at the blogger bar, for their beauty event "Broadway on the B-Way".  (If you follow me on Instagram then you already knew this!)

Before I went to Bloomingdale's, I shampooed and conditioned my hair with Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion.


Once I arrived at Bloomie's my straight locks were curled with a wand into beautiful cascading curls. I knew that my hair was well nourished with the amazing argan oil in the Suave products I used earlier in the day!

Haunted Halloween Pretzel Rods - Easy DIY Treats - Ghastly Ghost & Mischievous Monster


Over the weekend, I made a few trips to Target, as usual. During one of them, Little J decided that he wanted me to buy a really big drum of pretzel rods. Naturally, he had to also snack on them throughout the store. 

My brain was filling up with fun ideas about what we could do with all of the pretzels. Since Halloween is right around the corner, it was only fitting that we should make some spooky treats! 

Here's what you'll need to recreate the Ghastly Ghost and Mischievous Monster pretzel rods:


-pretzel rods
-white chocolate/baking morsels
-coconut flakes

If you're making both kinds (ghosts and monsters) you'll need 2 separate bowls for this project. 

Melt the baking morsels according to the directions on the back of the package. I used half of the bag for the ghosts and the other half of the bag for the monsters. 

Sprinkle coconut flakes onto another plate. Lay a sheet of wax paper down on your workspace. 

Then, let the fun begin! 


The boys had so much fun creating their pretzels. I'm not sure if they ate more than they decorated, but that was all part of the fun.


Little J loved sticking the eyeballs onto the green monsters! It was a job that he took very seriously, as you can tell in the pic above.

This was a messy afternoon, but well worth it to let the boys enjoy creating cute treats. Plus, it had been raining earlier, and the grass was a little too soggy and muddy to run around outside. So, I chose coconut flakes on the floor instead of mud...gotta pick your battles, I guess! :)



Lay your creations onto the wax paper when they are complete so they can dry. We left ours overnight.

The excess chocolate easily broke off, and they looked great!


You can wrap them up in a little cellophane bag and give them as a spooky treat to your friends. Enjoy, and happy haunting!

Jazziz Boca Raton - Date Night with Macy Gray and Cary Nokey


This past Friday night my husband and I went to Jazziz at Mizner Park in Boca Raton. 

Grammy award winner, Macy Gray, was our entertainment for the evening. It was an incredible show! She, of course, sang her ever famous "I Try" and some of her new songs, too! Her music never gets old, and we were happy when she came back out for one last encore song at the audience's encouragement.



Also on tour with Macy Gray is Cary Nokey. Their music isn't easy to categorize, since it encompasses many genre's, but it's a combination of glam/electronic/rock/awesomeness...which can be summed up as: very good to listen to! Check out Cary Nokey on Sound Cloud to see what all the buzz is about.

The ambiance inside of Jazziz is amazing. Their food is great, and overall it was a very fun date night out! We are looking forward to going back again soon. Stop by Jazziz's website to see their full schedule of live performances from many of the biggest names in music entertainment!
