SticyGram Review

I recently ordered from StickyGram for the first time.

 If your not familiar with StickyGram they
"turn your Instagram images into lovely little magnets. Create your pack online and we deliver them to your door.
Each StickyGram is 50mm x 50mm. That’s approximately the same size as they appear on your iPhone. They come in packs of 9. Our unique process produces a flexible yet durable magnet that captures the quality of your original images. Stick them on your fridge, locker or any magnet loving surface."
I placed my order on March 20 and received them today March 26, they get shipped form the UK and they say it usually takes 5-12 days for North America. 
Each StickyGram sheet comes with 9 magnets, you sign in with your instagram account and all your photos are accessible. Each sheet is $14.99 shipping is free. 
The quality is great, the magnets are strong and don't fall off the fridge (even when children slam it!) They came super quick! Very impressed and going to be ordering from them all the time!

30 Day Shred Challenge

Since I started working out 10 months ago, after the birth of my daughter. The fist DVD I bought was Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. When I started it I was over 200 lbs and had a hard time doing the workouts, it slowly became easier. Now weighing 154 lbs it's no longer a challenge, I can finish the whole workout without stopping (minus running to the bathroom after doing the jumping jack, children give you a weak bladder)

So on my fitness Facebook page I started a 30 Day Shred Challenge. It starts today and ends on April 25. I'm doing more so for me, my daughter turns a year on the 25th of April. But I want everyone to join in!
If you want to join the challenge all you need is the DVD. I would also like before and after pictures that I will be posting on the facebook page, don't worry your head will be blurred and no one will know who you are. No need to be scared or chicken about it, I posted pictures of me when I was 240 lbs and was scared at first but, I have motivated so many that it doesn't bother me anymore.
You can email your before pictures to newyearnewyou @ ymail.com But make sure you like my facebook page for more updates.
Happy Fitness to you all!

Review- John Frieda color Renew Tone Corrector

I recently dyed my hair what was suppose to be blonde, and I mean blonde. But good ol pregnancy hormones changed it to a strawberry blonde/red. I was so horrified! So I really can't do a good review of the hair dye that I used.

With that being said, I decided to purchase some John Frieda color Renew Corrector shampoo.I found it at Walmart for $9.99. If you have ever dyed your hair blonde, you will usually notice a brassy undertone.
To remove your brass you have to use a purple shampoo. This shampoo says to use 3X a week and follow with the Conditioner. I never purchased the conditioner because I heard if you use too much purple, your hair will start looking purple.
After I've been using it, I have noticed a difference and my hair is slowly looking more golden blonde and not so red/brassy.
I must say this is a life saver and I should have invested in it all this time, with blonde hair!

We open one gift and it's usually our Christmas PJ's
Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolf
What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year?
We always go down to the one park and look at the Christmas light display
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
It's fake, I've never had a fake tree my whole childhood, but since I moved out it's been fake
Hands down, what's your all-time favorite holiday food and holiday sweet treat?
Favorite holiday food would have to be cabbage rolls, I only get them once a year and it's on Christmas eve and favorite holiday treat is Butter Tarts Mmmmm
Be Honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Honestly I rather give gifts especially to my nieces and nephew and my lil man. Kids have the special Christmas joy when they open gifts. 
Show us your tackiest Christmas attire (ex: Ugly Sweater)
I don't own any Christmas attire, well ok Christmas socks but those aren't tacky lol
What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Anywhere my family is, they make the holiday season so much better
Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make?
I don't think we have a special recipe we usually just make the same things every year, since we look forward to them.
Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I would have to say pro wrapper. I'm the only one in my house, since hubby can't wrap for his life he goes to the wrappers in the mall to do it.

Most memorable Holiday moment?
I can't remember the year, but it was the only time the whole family (aunts, uncles, grandma) never came over and Mom, Dad, sister's and brother and I all went Ice Fishing. We all agree that is one of the best Christmas's that we ever had.
What made you realize the truth about Santa?
I think when my older sister found out she told me, but luckily for me I still got to believe in him for my younger sister and brother. And after you find out there is no Santa Christmas just doesn't feel the same.

I try but never stick to them, so I don't make them anymore
What makes the Holidays special for you?
Just seeing the joy on the faces of the little ones and being with my Family
