I had the opportunity, through Vocalpoint, to try Clairol's Nice 'n Easy Root Touch-Up Hair Color. This formula has 21 shades that match salon color shades, and gives 100% gray coverage. It's a permanent color that lasts up to three weeks.
Now, I don't fully color my hair, but I get highlights at the salon. I thought this was a great idea to extend the time between highlights. But unfortunately, every store I went to only had dark blonde, and I need a golden to light blonde. So I was unable to try this product at home. I did, however, get a free kit to look at what is in it. It looked easy, and I liked the brush included.
So, you don't get to see any great before/after pictures of me, but you can go here to read lots of reviews and see pictures from other Vocalpoint members. I think this all worked out the way it was supposed to because I have a feeling my hairdresser Amy would have killed me if I messed up my color:)
I have FOUR coupons for a box of Clairol Nice 'n Easy Root Touch Up Hair Color for my readers! Let me caution you, though, that these coupons expire 12/31/2013. So I will get them out immediately to you. Because they are expiring so soon, I decided to not do my normal Rafflecopter giveaway. Instead, I will give them to the first four people who leave me a comment telling me you want one! You must leave me your email so I can email you for your address. The giveaway starts NOW!

If You Were Me and Lived In... Norway is another book in Carole P. Roman's children's series exploring other cultures. I've already reviewed two other books in the series, on France and South Korea.
This series is a great way to introduce children age Pre-K to age eight (and older) to other cultures. In fact, I have learned quite a bit reading them as well! Did you know Norway is known as "The Land of the Midnight Sun"?
In If You Were Me and Lived in... Norway, your children will learn about the capital city, food, landscape, names for different things, and more. The illustrations are really cute and the print is large for early readers. At the back of the book is a pronunciation guide for all the new words you have learned.
To learn more about If You Were Me and Lived In...Norway, visit the authors website at www.caroleproman.com. You can also purchase the book at her website, and it is available at Amazon in paperback or Kindle.
*Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
