Nice N' Easy Non-Permanent Hair Color

I was given the privilege to try out Nice N' Easy Non-Permanent Hair Color!

Now, I this was not my first time coloring my hair at home, but it definitely was very easy to figure out...

Although, I wish it came in a foam application, because I have long hair and it isn't easy to apply hair dye and get full coverage... My fiance did point out that I did end up missing a couple spots towards the back. Though, I used the whole amount of the solution.

I also ended up dripping on the bathroom floor... Which came out easily since I wiped it immediately. It did not stain my skin, which was nice.

It takes no time at all really, typically 15 minutes for application and then rinse it out in the shower.

Now it says to keep rinsing until the water runs clear, but I noticed that no matter how long I stayed in the shower, the water still had a slight red tint to it even in the end...

I wish that Nice N' Easy Non-Permanent Hair Color had a larger variety of colors... I have natural auburn hair, but the only red color I could find was darker auburn, which I think came out a touch too dark for my skin tone.

I did have slight trouble finding a store that carried the non-permanent hair color, they carried Nice N' Easy Permanent Hair color only...

I also ended up having to pay a 56 cent tax on my 'get one free' coupon because Rite Aid couldn't get the tax to come off no matter how many times they typed in the coupon code... Not a big deal, but slightly annoying.

I do recommend this hair color, but not to first time home hair coloring users...
I recommend using a foam hair color for first time users, as it gives you better coverage during the application process and typically does not drip as much.

DIY Tee Shirt Scarf


What you need:
Large Tee Shirt

Step 1:
Cut a straight line all the way across the tee shirt under the sleeves.

Step 2:
Cut the seam on the bottom of the shirt off. 
Now you should have what looks like a big rectangular cuff.

Step 3: 
About halfway up the rectangular cuff cut thin strips. 

Step 4:
Now pull all the strips, slightly twisting them a bit. 
 This should make the fabric thin and stringy looking. 

And you're done!
I doubled it over around my neck.

Jurassic Park

I just finished reading Jurassic Park by author Michael Crichton.

Now I am sure that most of you have probably already viewed the film version of this best selling novel, Jurassic Park in 1993...

But, the book is actually quite different from the film you may have seen.
I believe the novel goes into much more detail about exactly what went wrong during the famous "first tour" of Jurassic Park to the Dr. Grant, Dr. Sattler, Dr. Malcolm, Timmy, Lex, and Mr. Gennaro...

It goes into the science and funding of the start of making the actual dinosaurs as well as reasons why they are sick, the discoveries of dinosaurs near the island, as well as why the power went down in the first place.

Occurrences in the novel also differ from the film, which I will not reveal and spoil such a wonderfully intriguing read. You will just have to read and find out for yourself...

Take time to enjoy a great novel that may have been overlooked after seeing the film version! I give this book an A+! Don't miss out.

I just finished reading Atonement by Ian McEwan..

Honestly, I wasn't personally a fan of this novel.
Though it was written quite beautifully and very detailed...
I kind of thought it was boring and wanted something to actually happen.

The beginning is slightly exciting and very interesting with different perspectives,
but the middle in very dull and detailed.
Then the ending is disappointing and still slightly dull...

Like I said, this was beautifully written and the storyline is definitely worth reading, but this must not be my taste for novels.

The story follows the innocent mind of a young girl who ruins a man's life,
with just one little lie... Her older sister hates her for it as well, for she was in love with this man and he was sentenced to time in prison and looked at poorly after the false accusations of this young girl.
It goes on to the man fighting in the war and trying to survive so he can see his love again, as well as how the young girl matures and realizes what she did while trying to mend things with her sister and lives forever with guilt.

This book is set back in the 1930's or 1940's during the war.

I personally wanted to reach into the book and punch the girl for being so arrogant.

Where The Heart Is

I just finished reading Where The Heart Is by author Billie Letts...
I know that some people may have seen this movie, but the book is quite different.

I very much enjoyed the movie and thought I would read this novel...
And I am pleased to say that it was worth every minute.

This novel is full of a lot of love and lots of drama.

Warning may contain spoilers!!!

It follows a young Novalee Nation who gets dumped at a Walmart when she is pregnant and without a penny in her pocket.
She is greeted with the kindness of strangers and grows bonds with the people who help her grow and learn along the way.
She lives in the Walmart for the end of her pregnancy and ends up giving birth there.
It follows her struggles of thinking she is nothing but stupid useless trailer trash and learning to love herself so that she can find love of her own.
While her ex boyfriend finds himself in jail and writes a song that gets him some stage time when he gets out... Though his bad choices and bad karma get the better of him every time and he eventually falls to his lowest point...

Definitely a cute story of love and heartache.

Good read! I give it two thumbs up.

Pines Acres Recreation Destination, Raymond, NH

Okay, my family and I just stayed at Pine Acres Campground located in Raymond, NH...
I had been there with my mother when I was a young teen and remembered it to be a good time... But apparently time has not been so kind to this camping area.

The biggest disappointment of all would have to be that the two water slides they offered, were both closed down for repairs the whole weekend of our stay...
(We had called the number on their website to make sure that they would be open, since this was the main reason for our stay here for the kids.)
Apparently, there is a lack of communication between the two offices...

So, second choice would be to go swimming down at their small lakeside swimming area...
Which we found to have at least 12 dog poops all along the edge of the lake where the kids would be running or building sand castles... Gross.
(In all fairness a man did come around a few minutes after arriving at the beach with a rake, shovel and a trash bag to rake out the dog turds, but even so, we didn't want the kids playing there anymore.)

Our site was clear of trash and debris, but the fire pit was built out of cement blocks with exposed rebar sticking out and random rocks where one of the walls is missing... We did notice that the surrounding campsites had nicer fire pits with a grill like cage.

The picnic table was extremely pitted and rotted, it looked as though it was about to fall apart. Apparently, they only replace your table if you complain, though they had a small pile of new in box picnic tables sitting outside of a garage area near the teen arcade. 

The closest restrooms were at the pavilion...
They consisted of two bathroom stalls, which is just fine.
Although, the mens room had both stalls clogged with feces.
And the women's room only had one stall operating...
Some carved something in the door about being a blond chick...
And there was an empty nip on the floor of the closed stall...

The pavilion held a rather loud Father's day dance, which was still nice for the kids when they played a few good songs...
(I found it a little odd that a song about a guy asking a girl when she was gonna give it to him was being played... Odd choice for a Father's day dance...)
The popcorn offered was $3.00 for a small bag... So we passed.

The pavilion was less than remarkable in it's self...
The icicle lights that only half blinked or half worked were not that exciting.
Plus, there was graffiti on the building that definitely was not family friendly...
Such as things like, 'Slut bag', 'Butt Slut', and 'Smoke Weed'....

The closest shower/bathroom building to our site looked as though Chuck Norris had kicked the screen door in and then proceeded to punch the siding making a hole.
The shower was ultra uncomfortable as well, since the water was either scorching hot or ice cold...

The closest playground to our site consisted of two ride on animals on springs, which were falling apart and the bolts were deemed useless... The playground also had a "swing" set, and I use "swing" very lightly, considering one swing was missing and the other was hanging broken, unable to be used. Also, the slide was missing.
The only nice playground equipment near us was a wooden train to play in. 

They did have a baseball field, a horseshoe area, a basketball court and a volleyball court with a net that has seen better days.

The only positive things about the campground was the escort to our campsite and how the man helped us back our camper into the site.
The also had a second playground which was in better shape, but was quite some distance from our site...
They also offer a small mini golf course as well as a skate park for the teens.
Another plus was a small store at the office and the kid across the street that had a wheel barrel full of fire wood for $4.00.
The also had an adult arcade which I did not visit since it was on the other side of the park and a teen arcade that was fairly entertaining and large. 

This campground is apart of Morgan Recreation Vacations.
And we can honestly say, that we will not be visiting any of their parks in the future.

I don't think I can portray clearly how awkward it was having to answer my ten year olds question as to what a butt slut was...
