My Amazing BlowDry Secret…Truly Amazing? Read and find out!



I’ve got a secret: my hair dries in nearly half the time it used to take.  How, you might ask?  Well, that’s my secret! My Amazing BlowDry Secret!

My Amazing BlowDry Secret is truly amazing!  So, what is it?  A hair care set that includes a shampoo, conditioner, and Quick Dry Shake’n Spray.

How does it work?  See the full details here, but simply put there is a special coconut-oil moisture wicking system in the shampoo.  No, that doesn’t mean that your hair will be oily.  That means that the oils and nutrients disperse through the hair, protecting and moisturizing it, while the water evaporates 50% faster.




Simply wash your hair with the shampoo and rinse.  Then, apply the conditioner and let it sit in your hair for a few minutes.  I generally use this time to clean my face and body.  Rinse the conditioner out and towel dry your hair as usual.

Once you step out of the shower and dry off, spritz the Quick Dry Shake’n Spray evenly over your hair.  I suggest using the spray before combing because it is an amazing detangler!  Don’t worry if you see separation in the bottle - that’s normal.  Just remember to shake it well before each use so the ingredients mix and work properly.  I’ve even noticed that using the spray with a different shampoo and conditioner will still decrease drying time some.

If you are me, you prefer skipping the blow dryer.  I mean, I’m the mom of two toddlers.. usually by the time I’m done with my shower, someone is getting into something they shouldn’t, so I normally let my hair air dry.  It…takes…forever.  I had no idea how My Amazing BlowDry Secret would work without being blow dried.  I mean, did it require a blow dryer to work?  Nope – my hair dries in about half the time even without the blow dryer!

But don’t worry!  I used the blow dryer the next time and the products definitely stood up to their claim, and my hair was dry in no time at all.

And get this – the products will protect your hair at a temperature up to 450 degrees!

So what’s the bad?  If you are used to buying professional hair products, there is no bad.  But if you are used to the prices you generally find on Pantene and Aussie, $22 for a 10.1 oz shampoo is a bit steep.  As a mom with other monetary priorities at this time (boo to bills and living expenses..) I may have to sacrifice using the shampoo and conditioner every month, but I am definitely attached to the spray!

Halloween Tic Tac Toe (free printable!)

Use two varieties of candy corn and have fun playing on this free printable Halloween Tic Tac Toe!


Our newest Halloween printable is this fun tic tac toe game!  My favorite way to play is with two types of Halloween candy.  I picked up some classic candy corn and candy corn pumpkins for just 79 cents each at the store a few days ago and they’re perfect size…plus you can eat the candy when you are done playing tic tac toe!

Protect your tablet with KABOO handbags (and they’re gorgeous!)

This gorgeous purse has a protective tablet pouch and is made of vegan leather!


You just got home after a long day at work and pull out the iPad when you notice a big scratch across the screen. Turns out, your keys scratched the screen while they were in your purse.  What if you could have prevented that scratch?  Or prevented that time the iPad slipped out of your hands when walking to the library and crashed down on the concrete sidewalk?

Kaboo has created gorgeous handbags with a protective tech pouch and believe me, you won’t have to worry about a scratched screen or dropped iPad again when on-the-go.


But what sets this bag apart from other tablet bags?


They are beautiful, well made handbags.  As soon as I saw the Jenna Watermelon, I was smitten.  The outer is vegan leather in a lovely shade of pinkish red.  The interior is an aqua and gray chevron pattern, making my favorite tri-color combination all on one handbag!  The hardware is sort of a bronze color and nicely compliments the bag without being too flashy.  

Check out the upcoming Spring 2015 bags on Kickstarter too – the new styles are beautiful but the campaign ends November 1, 2014 so hurry!


It is the perfect size.  The tech pouch standard size tablets, generally even with a case on them.  The tech pouch is 8.5 x 11 x .5-.75 inches and the handbag itself is 13 x 12.625 x 3.625.  I love the size of my  bag!  It doesn’t feel huge and overwhelming, but it is big enough to fit the essentials.




They are functional and versatile. 

I carry in mine:

Your Kaboo handbag could even double as a diaper bag - space for your necessities and best of all, space to keep your tablet protected for when you need it later for the kids, or maybe for you.  Plus the two pockets on the side for a drink for you and a drink for the little one!


The pouch is very protective.  The patent-pending tech pouch is reinforced with an impact resistant core inside two layers of foam.  There is space between the pouch and the bottom of the bag, along with padding on the bottom to ensure that your tablet is safe if you were to drop your bag.  Take a look at the drop test video to see the bag in action.


KABOO's tech pouch protects your tablet and is so easy to access


Your tablet is easily accessible.  With a magnetic closure, the tech pouch is easy to access, removing any laziness you may feel towards putting your tablet away.  Back in college, I remember it being a nuisance to squeeze my laptop into my padded laptop backpack (which was huge and definitely styled towards guys) so occasionally I would just carry my laptop between classes.  That isn’t a good idea amidst the hustle and bustle of college students rushing through the hallway to classes.


I’m very happy with my Jenna Watermelon tablet bag and it will definitely be used a lot this Fall and Winter as I upgrade from the tiny cross body handbag that I used through summer.  I have my eye on the matching wallet too ;)  Ooh I forgot to mention those didn’t I?  They compliment the bags nicely and have a wrist strap.  With space inside to fit most phones (again, please see dimensions to ensure your phone will fit if you have a larger phone), you could use the wallet as a quick grab-and-go wristlet.

Remember to stop over and check out the Kickstarter page to see the upcoming styles and campaign information!  If you are planning to purchase a tablet for your wife, daughter, sister, or whomever else for Christmas, a Kaboo handbag would be a perfect surprise for them this Spring!
