My First BzzAgent Campaign: Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Creme

Image Via BzzAgent
I received my very first Bzz Agent campaign on Friday. I get so excited when I'm chosen for these things. Not only do I love getting free stuff, but I honestly and truly love testing products, reviewing them for others to see, and spreading the word.


When I opened the box, I was extremely surprised to see 3 full sized products. I get a lot of sample shampoos, so this really put a smile on my face. I'll be able to use enough of these products to really get a feel for how they work. 

Here's my total review:

Shampoo: I typically have dry scalp as well as dry and frizzy hair. I used this shampoo and haven't felt the itch I usually get with any shampoo besides Head & Shoulders. My entire head feels nourished and smells awesome so I give it a 4.5/5.

Conditioner: This conditioner works extremely well with the shampoo set. It's very lightweight (I'm used to thick and intense conditioners) but somehow still did the job for my hair. My only issue it that my hair is harder to brush than usual after using it. A bit of a thicker formula may work better. I give it a 4/5.

BB Creme: I can't say enough about this creme. It completely transforms my hair. I run it through towel dried hair, let it air dry, and I swear it removed like 2 inches of frizz from my hair. It's incredible smooth and light feeling. I have been recommending this stuff to everyone I know - a definite 5/5.

Weekly Links Vol. 6

1. Happy national coffee day everyone!

2. I just came across this blog and died a little. It might be bad, but we're all thinking it.

3. I officially moved on Saturday, so today will be filled with address changing and unpacking.

4. If I wasn't going to be so busy unpacking, I would totally make these right now. I'm dying for a pumpkin fix.

5. But because I have to unpack, for now I must recommend these cheesecakes. A friend brought them over for me on moving day, and they are simply delicious.

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday Everyone. This week has been extremely busy for us because tomorrow we move to our new house! Moving being this pregnant is extremely difficult, but I'm getting through it and trying to enjoy the good things:

1. I haven't yet blogged about it, but this was my first week of not working. After being extremely stressed out and not feeling well, I decided to take my maternity leave a bit early. Being off work will really allow me to focus on moving (and all the paperwork), getting Holly into her new school routine, and unpacking.

2. I had my 34 week OB appointment and after a few weeks of high blood pressure, my blood pressure is back to normal. I guess it was a good choice to go on maternity leave early.

3. Our new house needs a lot of work, but for now we decided that a fresh coat of paint might brighten things up. This entire week my mother in law has been painting her life away, and I thank her because the house now looks completely different! Looks for photos soon.

Our new house is a crazy big mess right now, but it's coming along.

Holly is loving her new backyard.


4. Holly's last day of daycare and school at her current school was yesterday. She didn't get upset and she's actually pretty excited to start at her new school - win!

5. Uhm, I'm moving into my very own house tomorrow and I can't stop talking about it!



P.S. This is my first time linking up for the "High Five for Friday" series!

Baby Boy Room Inspiration

Image via

There is just under a month and a half left until baby arrives.

It's flying by and honestly, I'm starting to feel a bit overwhelmed because, uh, nothing is really done. For the past few weeks, Chris and I have been nailing down the elements for the nursery, and I wanted to share our vision. We don't have much purchased yet, but we definitely know the direction we would like to take.

Here are the key elements for baby W's room:

- A grey, navy blue, and light blue colour pallet
- Dark wood to contrast light walls
- A monogram over his crib
- Navy and white chevron
- A few silver accents
- A subtle hockey theme

Keep watch for how the nursery actually turns out- I plan on documenting the whole process over the next few months.
