Randomness

I guess the time is coming for me to start thinking about making a baby registry. I cant beleive that Im due in about 4 months!! OMG!! I can hardly wait!! I am happy that its a boy and he IS and WILL BE HEALTHY!!! :D Thanks God!!!
I am planning to do one this weekend if plans work out.. This last weekend was not that good plan wise.. Me and my dd were going to go to the mall to do some shopping and on our way there our car had a malfunction! EEKK! So I immediatly called my DH (who was working extra hours for work and was currently out of state) to figure out what to do.. Thankfully my DH is awesome at directions and sense of direction because when I told him where I was he told me exactly where the nearest Pep Boys was to inspect my car..

Well to sum it up. Me and my DD (and finally DH when he was able to get off of work) spent about 4 hours in the Pep Boys to find out that my axel had broken!???!!??? HUH!!! WHAT!!!! HOW??!!!
I had NO CLUE where to begin in a conversation about that, I just wanted it fixed. So we were told they would start fixing it. After about another 45 min. we were told that in the process of the axel breaking off a piece of the transmission went along with it! EEEEEEEKKKK!!! WHAT!!! At this point we were told to just bring the car to Aamco (sp?) because they can not do anything with a transmission problem..

Sooooo of course at this point Aamco was closed. So I just drove the car home with hubby in front of me. Beleive it or not, whatever they did actually allowed the car the drive better than it had been over the last year! LOL! We get a callback from Aamco, although they were closed, and someone listened to my husband about the problem and told us that this is common in the car that we have and if we hear the noise again to bring in the car. He says that there is nothing that broke off of the transmission its just a piece that our car takes and some places are not familiar and it would look like its broken but he knew exactly what we were talking about with our car.. THank goodness.. so we are holding out on bringing the car until we do hear it again!

On a side note: Ive been dealing with a lot lately and have been thinking.. but some people are so phony to me.. they are so phony that they make my stomach cringe.. its sad especially when they are family! UGH!! I just try to stay away as much as possible. Its just sickening to me!

Bee Mine Review

Soooo.. I wanted to get to try all my Bee Mine products before I was able to make my blog review. I went ahead and purchased almost everything I could in the sample sizes so that I could get an overall idea of what I wanted to purchase at full price.
So the items I bought were:
1.Peppermint & Tea Tree Nourshing Shampoo 2 oz
2.Avocado Cream Balanced Conditioner 2 oz
3.Bee Hold Curly Butter - 2 oz
4.Bee Loved Hair & Scalp Moisturizer 2 oz
5.Deja's Hair Milk 2 oz
6.Juicy Moisturizing Daily Spritz 2 fl oz.
7.Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer 2 oz
8.Strawberry Kiwi Serum 2 oz (With Sulfur)

So here goes:
#1- The consistency of this product was more like a liquidy balm. I was skeptical if it would even lather on my head. I did it once and it didnt lather as good.. but then again I did have other oils so I always lather a second time and when I did, I got the lather that Im used to getting with my own regular shampoos. The first time I used this product I noticed that my hair was nice and moisturized before even applying the condishoner. But the second and third time I used it, unfortunatly it did not yeild the same results. It was still moisturizing but nothting special. As for the smell, nothing really to comment about. I really did not like the smell. It didnt spell like peppermint nor did it have a "tingle" like pepperment shampoos have but I did smell the tea tree fragrance. Will not be purchasing again.

#2- Condishoned my hair very nicely.. When I rinsed out my hair felt soft and moisturized. At first I was going to place this item on my buy again list but have found that the HE Long term treatment and Treseme worked just as fine. The smell was OK.. nothing major. Will not be purchasing again.

#3- This product did absolutely nothing for my hair. I washed my hair and applied this product then left my hair to air dry. My hair was sooo brittle feeling. My aloe gel makes my hair feel better than this. It was hard and not manageable at all. My hair was just sooo frizzy by the end of the day and dry. I came home and used the spritz but that didnt do my hair any justice either :( I wished that it would of worked for me.. I see soo many good reviews about people using this as for their wash and go routine. This product smelled very good.. I beleive I purchased the coconut. Ill just have to give this to my sisters and see if they like it for their texture of hair. Will not be purchasing again.

#4- This moisturizer is a very thick consistency.. Works well in my hair after a braid out or after a wash for moisture.. Its lays on thick but spreads nicely and lasts all day! I love that its so thick but maneagable. Smells very good too! May be purchasing this again.

#5- This product did nothing for my hair.. Unlike #4 it was not as moisturizing. Its a light milky consistancy.. so I tried it in my 15mo daughters hair and it worked really nicely. I usually use baby lotion in her hair and it worked similarly to that. We have different textures in hair and this my be why it worked better. Smells nice.. mixture of smells but I cant remember exactly.. but its nice enought to use in my daughters hair and im REALL particular what goes on her hair.. but being that other products work well in her hair... I will not be purchasing again.

#6- I used this in conjuction with the curly butter to try to soften up my curls.. I also used it on a fresh braid out for moisture. I dont think It really did anything that great for me.. another produc that I can do without.. until I find a style that may need this.. Will not be purchasing again.

#7- LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVVVEE this stuff!!! OMG.. smells amazing and moisturized dry and wet hair fantastically!!! :D Very happy about this product.. Made my favorites.. It feels and covers better than Cantu Shea Butter and has about the same consistancy. When my hair is "nappy" it smoothes out the kinks and allows me to comb through with hardly any breackage!!!! LOVES IT!!! :D Will be purchasing again.

#8- I have only used the product twice since I received it. I love the kiwi-Strawberry sent. A little goes a long way (lessoned learned) lol! it will drip down the side of your face. It doesn't seem like its a lot when putting it on but it will stretch so use sparingly. I havent been using a lot to see any growth or results as yet. I would like to continue with this product for at least a month or so to know if its helping. I know there are other oil growth products out there like Doo Gro.. just to name one.. so im going to take this seriously because if I can find something local and cheaper that works the same then I may just have to skip but as for right now.... I will be purchasing again.

Well thats it for right now.. I would also like to try the Bee Mine BEE•U•Ti• FUL Moisturizing Deep Conditioner. I may order a sample to try when I order my full bottles of the growing serum and the lucious balanced creme moisturizer.
I hope that my review helps out. I am just giving my honest opinion on what my experience was.. of course everyones will be different.

I would like to read reivews on these products:
-C B Smooth products (including relaxer) AND
-Bodiphier

Also, Im thinking about doing like a wig (human hair) for this winter.. or maybe even a sew in .. a looong one! ;p
I want something new... and I want to give my hair a break.. cant wait!! :D
