Instant Glam Styling Head Doll Review #Christmas Gift Guide

aiyana doll

I received a Instant Glam Styling Head Doll to review. I saw them at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair in Chicago. I saw the Instant Glam Styling Head Doll and instantly fell in love with them! There were many reasons that I fell in love with them, and why so many were flocking to their booth to see the Styling Head Doll as well.

When I arrived at the booth I hung back and watched how the kids reacted to the Instant Glam Styling Doll. The kids were going crazy over the Instant Glam Styling Doll, they were just loving this Doll. I was talking to the kids to see what they liked about the doll, they loved that it had hands that moved so you could paint it’s nails, other styling head dolls do not offer this feature. They loved that they were not stuck with one type of hair color, they could do wild and sassy hair styles on the Instant Glam Styling Doll head. They loved that they could get as creative as they wanted with this Styling Doll Head and be able to change it again as often as they wanted. They also loved that they could purchase other hair colors for the Styling Doll Heads as well.

The Instant Glam Styling Doll Heads are not your typical Styling Doll heads! Your child can remove their hair completely and start from scratch to have any hair style that they want from blonde to wild colors like Purple, pink, and Blue to mention a few of the colors. They can mix and match any colors that they want and even do a rainbow hair style if they would like. The hair comes off and goes back on with ease and it’s easy for all age children to play with. Teens were loving the Instant Glam Styling Doll Heads as well because they offered such a variety of hair color choices. They were playing as much as the younger children and having as much fun as them as well. They were all wanting one for Christmas and asking their parents to get them a Instant Glam Styling Doll Head.

One of my biggest things that I loved, well their were actually two things that I loved the most about these dolls. The first being that they have black Instant Glam Styling Doll heads! They are just the most adorable dolls as well and they had many different hair types for them as well. Having Bi-racial grandchildren I am always on the lookout for companies who make black dolls as well as white dolls. However, most of the time black dolls do not always come out looking the way they should. The Instant Glam Styling Dolls have the most beautiful black dolls I have found so far for my princesses! I just loved the hair, the facial features, just everything about them. The second thing that I absolutely loved is the passion that the Doll creators have for their dolls. They take so much pride in them, you can see how they light up when they are showing how they work, how the kids can play with them, how much they wanted them perfect for their customers. It really showed when they were at the fair. They took so much pride in each doll that they made and how they put them together because they wanted children to enjoy them for a long time. Their excitement is what got people flocking to their booth and wanting to purchase the Instant Glam Styling Doll Head along with how adorable they are and how many options they offered for the Doll Heads. Kudos to them for their hard work on these beautiful dolls, they did an amazing job on them!

If you have been looking for a Styling Doll head for this holiday season for your princess to play with. I can tell you that I would choose Instant Glam Styling Head Doll every time!

5 Tips to Painting with Your Kids

kid painting1

Parents strive to find time to spend with the kids despite their busy schedule. Nowadays, it can be hectic to find ample time to bond with your little ones. Some of the extra-curricular activities such as painting provide a good platform to bond and educate your young ones. Painting with kids can be a little messy and hectic, but there is always a way to make it fun and less hectic. We have compiled a list of ideas that will make it easy and fun for you and the kids. They include:

1) Diamond Painting
This is a great way to engage your child without having to worry about the paint mess, and Pretty Neat Creative will give you all the tips to help you achieve the most colorful results. It provides your child with a platform to develop their cognitive, organization and engagement skills. They are only required to place the tiny crystals that come with the package on the canvas to create colorful and neat patterns. The best feature about this option is that you get to hang it on your wall or in their rooms. It is an easy and less anxious way of introducing your child to art.

2) Lower Viscosity Paint
Do not expect a kid to work with the same type of paint an experienced painter will. Low viscosity paint is recommended for younger learners because it will allow smooth brushing over the paint with close to or zero resistance. Children love fun and less stressful activities. High viscosity paint will be a bit of a challenge discouraging them to indulge again. It also provides room for brush movements experimenting.

3) Different Brushes
Do not limit your kid to one brush only. Introduce them to the concept that every tool has its role in any given task. They will learn to use different brushes based on what they want to achieve. You can introduce them to a brush by briefly explaining what the brush does for every painting.

4) Engaging Talks
Engaging your kid during this process is important. It helps create a good foundation for them to remember. Let it not be only your ideas that the kid incorporates in the painting. Engage them to know what they would love to paint. Give them a platform for them to share their ideas. This approach will also make it easy for you to educate them on the basic painting skills. They are likely to pay attention to what you will say if you extend the same courtesy. It is a great bonding experience that will make them look forward to the next session.

5) Prepare Your Working Space
There is a minimal chance that a kid will be as neat as a grown up. They will want to run around trying to show you how great they did with the painting. This can end up becoming messy on your floor, table, and even clothes. Most parents will tape a paper to be used during painting on a stationary board to limit movements. You can also dress them in old clothes and lay down an old rug to avoid spilling.

The holidays are coming up quickly. You want to have all the family over to have a festive time with them and spend quality time as well. We totally understand and are right there with you. I have also started thinking about how all those extra people are going to be using the restroom, we will be using the sinks, toilet and shower a lot more for hand washing, cooking, and showers. So this is on my list of must check on for the holidays as we will be having a lot of guests.

So in prepping for the holidays all of our plumbing needs to be maintained in order to ensure that we have a fabulous holiday. Did you know that the plumbers busiest time of year is during the holiday season??? That’s right it’s great to see everyone but your plumbing is not always as excited to see them as you are. So be sure your plumbing is ready and that you will not have to spend money on a plumber this holiday season because the prices are higher per hour during this time as well. So let’s make sure your ready for a stress free holiday!

roto rooter hair clog remover

Slower drains for bath tubs or shower~ If you are noticing that your drains are moving slower then normal take care of them now before the guests arrive. If your bath tub drain is moving slower more then likely it’s a hair clog and Roto Rooter Hair Clog remover will clear your drain and bring it back to draining properly. You will not have to worry about clog during your families stay. Nothing worst then having to run out and get proper care products while trying to entertain at the same time.

roto rooter septic treatment
Toilet~ Before your friends and family arrive for the holidays you want to make sure that your bathroom can handle the guests. If you have a septic system then now is the time to treat it before they all start to arrive! Roto Rooter Septic Treatment will have your plumbing working great during the holidays and everyday.

When your doing all your holiday cooking having a clogged kitchen sink is not going to help with all the holiday stress. So making sure your sink is ready for all the cooking it would really help with the holiday prep.

Bathroom sink~ All the shaving, toothpaste, and other things that we use for personal care can start to work our drains into a frenzy and clog them.

5 Tips on How to Dry Laundry Quickly Indoors

clothing drying rack

Despite the fact that sometimes we complain about the heat, those sunny days are always good for our laundry. In addition to killing bacteria and improving the odor on our clothes, sunlight is considered the best way to get laundry dry. But blame it on the seasons; most of the days and nights in a year are the ones we have to deal with cold, moist or and snowy 12-24 hours. But hygiene and sanitation standards have to be observed all the same. Ever woke up to one of those mornings when you’re like, “where’s my blue silk top that I really need to wear today?”Well, for those of you who have a tumble dryer, it just takes you a couple of minutes to hours to get this blue top ready. However, these don’t always come cheap. And endless cycle of wet laundry can be a disaster in the making, especially for the professional individual who has to look the part out there at work. So how exactly can you dry your wet clothes fast indoors?

Here are some 5 tips on how to dry laundry quickly indoors.

1. Get a drying rack
Also known as a clothes horse, a drying rack can be an amazing piece of equipment in your arsenal if you have to dry your clothes indoors. These are mostly made of plastic and can be acquired from most supermarkets and homeware stores. Foldable options that allow you to save on storage space are also available. In case you need something more practical, you can also plant a few indoor clotheslines, but this will require you to have a considerable amount of indoor space you can spare.

2. Pick a warm and breezy place
When you have to dry your laundry indoors, the location will also have an impact on how long your clothes take to dry. Significantly warm places that have a good flow of air can be the best to place your airer, clothesline or permanent drying rack. You can also consider areas with a considerable source of warmth, such as near the oven (kitchen) or radiator. However, you’ll also want to avoid areas where your clothes can pick up foul or strange smells.

3. Rotate your drying clothes regularly
To improve the rate at which your clothes dry indoors, be sure to rotate the hanging positions regularly or at least once. Doing so improves airflow and heat distribution, which are factors that your laundry relies on to dry. The way you pack up or position your clothes drying rack will also affect how fast the moisture in them drains and evaporates off. Also, you might want to consider opening more windows to improve ventilation, which can reduce the time your clothes take to dry. However

4. Consider Using Hangers
Whether you’re using a clothesline or a drying rack; your smart fit shirts, blouses, and coats could use some hangers. In addition to saving space, using hangers will also help reduce creasing when drying your clothes indoors. Once dry, you’ll have less to worry about ironing.

5. Dehumidify

Last but not least, drying clothes with dehumidifieris also another one among the best ways you can dry laundry quickly indoors. In addition to speeding up the clothes drying process, a dehumidifier will also protect your indoor environment from moisture and smells of dumpiness. It will protect your home indoors from attracting the growth of mold and other microorganisms. With the above tips, you can manage your closet better during the cold or rainy season. Anytime you’re doing the laundry and the sun is not up, you’ll have less to worry about.
