Alice in Wonderland Costumes**Mad Hatter Child Costume from Costume Supercenter.Com

I know what you are thinking...What is a Halloween Costume being reviewed in April for? But who can ever be too early for Halloween? I know my kids enjoy dressing up as often as possible so in my home EVERYDAY is Halloween:)

If you look around there are TONS of Halloween costume stores around and available through the year and there are many reason for costumes not just Halloween. For instance, Easter is coming and what is our character for Easter? Yep, a rabbit, and what movie associates a rabbit..what better than to review "Alice in Wonderland"costumes. I suppose that's the reason CostumeSupercenter(.com) sent me this totally cute, Mad Hatter costume to review with my daughter. 
The dress is embellished with tea cups it is a satin style dress with a tulle rim around bottom, colors are bright and festive. Perfect for the little girl and strong enough to with stand many uses. We loved the lime green and pink colors, the dress was a 7/8 which gave my size 5 plenty of wiggle room(IMO).

The packaging comes with everything needed for the basic costume( minus the shoes). The hat is a soft foam like substance comes out folded but pops up nicely to a nice pink top hat.

Perfect quality, no noticed flaws or pulls, pretty close to TTS(true  to size). The CostumeSuperCenter has such a wide array of costumes for nearly any occasion and in stock with a large amount of sizes and styles. The next time you are in need make sure to check them out, you won't be disappointed.
**Thank you to the kind folks at CostumeSuperCenter for the speedy shipping of the product. All opinions in this review are my own and receipt of product NEVER promises a positive review. **

**Sally Hansen..NYC..** My final make up review of 2013 :)



Sally Hansen Review with NYC products

Yes it is the end of summer , November to be exact, but here in California Sally Hansen and NYC is not only always available but a necessity for any girls beauty cabinet. Im going to share some amazing products I was able to review with the help of my daughter. Negative remarks will not be accepted in regards to using my daughter as a model(my preference).


* Fuzzy Coat Nail
When I first saw it I thought "How cool is that" it has little flakes inside looks like little lint pickings from a shirt :) The colors are fantastic and bold and the texture was far more than I expected.. The texture is so soft and even with one coat the tint of color is very noticeable.My model tried each one and was happy to note the drying time was very fast and lasted many days between polishing.
The ultimate outfit for your nails! Sally Hansen continues to lead the nail category with new 3D, unique textures inspired by fashion. Fuzzy Coat transforms nails with a 3D textured, woven fiber effect.
*Sugar Coat (for some reason not pictured) is a textured polish , I liked it for a change and wanted to feel the difference. The colors were bold and the texture IMO was like a stucco feeling(when you rub your fingers over a stucco wall), it was by far not the easiest to remove with a cotton ball, but I liked the polish for me:)

The NYC shadow was a big hit for eye color, the tint was bold yet powdery, had plenty of shimmer and the brush made it easy to apply. The case gives you examples of how you layer the color for the best effects.
(pictured #785 Central Park Plums-HD color trio)

From 4G to 3D to HD, technology is the key to always be on top. So channel your inner geek and put the HD in beauty! NYC steps up its game with the new HD Trio Eye Shadow Palettes. High pay-off colors pick up the intensity with a true staying power. Get HD colors at low prices!
The Glossy Lip Balm was a nice sheer color, very smooth and easy to apply.
 APPLELICIOUS lip balm that will deliver color, shine and moisture in one single swipe! Just like the Big Apple itself it’s juicy, shiny and colorfully loud but also reveals a softer and more caring side.

Tons of sparkles, easy to apply, quick to dry.
NYC Matte in Matte me Crazy :
Go from shiny to matte in express New York seconds! So easy! All it takes isone coat of our new NYC Matte Me Crazy Top Coat!A special control-flow brush dispenses just the right amount of product for perfectapplication

NYC Sparkle Top Coat:
go from daytime to dazzling.

**We were very grateful to have the opportunity to review the products provided by Sally Hansen and NYC. All opinions are my 100% my own and others opinions may differ from mine.**
NYC and Sally Hansen are available at many retailers and online.

The underwear, socks and fleece jackets were all washed in the washing machine under normal conditions for my household(cold water, eco friendly detergent, delicates wash) all products washed well, no noted shrinkage. There was no noted defects in products and the items are comparable  in price to others being sold in store. All sizing was true to size IMO.

**Antboy**




Pelle Norman, longs to fit in, he is neither a nerd or the popular kid, he is just an unknown. While hiding from school bullies an ant crawls up his pant leg and bites him on the neck infecting him.. and thus the story begins.
We did enjoy the comic book feel of the movie along with the cast of characters. Pelle uses his powers when needed and the one friend he confides in is his witness to all the off the wall antics of a human ant. My kids were totally awe struck by this movie. Then Antboys true love, Amanda, is napped by the Flea and he has to show just how brave he is. This is a great family friendly movie and proves that Superheroes did come in all sizes.


**Pelle is a shy twelve-year old who is bitten by an extremely special ant. As a result, he develops superpowers that he has to navigate through among all the other awkward moments a kid must face. Aided by Wilhelm, a comic book fanatic, Pelle creates a secret identity as the superhero, Antboy. When the dreaded villain, The Flea, enters the scene, 
Antboy is put up to the challenge. **




In theaters April 16th

**I received a copy of this movie for review purposes. All opinions are my own and receipt of product never promises a positive review.**

*The Dog Who Saved Easter- Review and Giveaway*

Lionsgate Home Entertainment< available April 8th


**As the Bannisters get ready to go on a lavish family cruise, they send their beloved dog Zeus to a doggy day care. But Zeus' Easter vacation is interrupted by a trio of crooks out to sabotage the hound hotel and funnel their clients to a rival day care.
Rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for some rude humor.**


      This was a cute movie most definitely child related with a bit of suspense packed full of adorable pooches on the move to Save EASTER.  With Easter approaching this is an ideal Easter basket filler for those hard to surprise kiddos on your list. 

      My kidlets were in a movie coma the entire beginning to end of the movie and even watched it on multiple occasions afterwards. The plot I was concerned might be to advanced for a 4 year old but to my dismay she was totally understanding of the whole "good guy" bad guy" between the 2doggie day cares. Like any other suspense movie this keeps you on the run and not knowing how it was going to come out. Great movie for even the teens(at least in my home) it was enjoyable. The chicks that showed up were very cute through the movie.
