The Following is Over.

I am really disappointed with the amount of good shows that have been cancelled this past month or so, but the one that shocked me the most was probably The Following. 

I have watched this show since the beginning and I've loved every minute of it - James Purefoy is an absolute delight to see on-screen and a perfect match to Kevin Bacon's deeply disturbed Ryan Hardy and when they let his character, Joe, go, the show took a twisted turn and actually looked like it was about to get deeper and darker than ever before!

Denied of the 4th season, we'll never quite know where Ryan Hardy was off to and we'll never really see that dark side of him in the way we all hoverd about for in season 3, but the show touched on it enough to really give us, the viewer, the insight into what might have been - and that kills us all a little on the inside!

I am certainly sad to see this show go, though it went out with a little bit of a bang, we'd all have liked some more - I wish that it would be picked up by Hulu or Netflix or something in the future, but nothing is ever set in stone and I have little hope since The Bridge was cancelled last year or when Carnivale was cancelled back in the day - apparently there is just no accounting for taste and/or good T.V.

On a side note, Battle Creek was cancelled, too - another show that had such great potential!

Come on, guys in the big seats, give us something to cling to, here! We're tired of reality T.V!

Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra, #Ultrahug Event: I'd Like to Nominate: Red Creek Wildlife Center!



Huggies has a new Snug & Dry Ultra diaper (only available at Walmart) and to celebrate these new cozy diapers, Huggies is hosting an event, which allows you to nominate a community venture for a chance to win a $2k grant all in the name of an #Ultrahug!

All you have to do, to nominate the venture of your choice, is to upload a photo of you and your little one in an #ultrahug and share it to Twitter and Instagram, with the nomination of your choice! 

As such, I wanted to share with you a little about the organisation that I would love to see a grant go towards, because it would mean a lot to our family to be able to give something back to a place that has been there for us, and the community for as long as I can remember. 

My husband and I love animals and have had an especially large number of reptiles in particular come through our hands over the years. Our family has bonded over, and shared great moments with the wildlife that we've seen, cared for and admired from a distance and we've taught our children how to appreciate each and every one of them.

Every time someone moved and left behind a turtle or when we rescued an iguana from a yard sale and the snapping turtle that someone had sitting in their car without water or food for an entire week, we took them all in and found them homes or let them go somewhere safe! 

There are not so many organisations out there that take in reptiles, but when we came by one turtle that got very sick, we found a rehabilitation center in PA called Red Creek Wildlife Center, who put themselves to the task of making the little guy better and nursed him back to health! 

Red Creek Wildlife Center has a great way of rescuing, caring for and taking in wild animals and has been doing so since 1991! I am therefore nominating them for Huggies #Ultrahug campaign, to possibly win a grant for $2k, which I believe would help the organisation continue to care for Pennsylvania wildlife just as they always have done for us and their community!  


If you have an organisation you would like to nominate for a change to receive a grant from Huggies, then head on over HERE to upload a photo of you hugging your little one, and with the name of the organisation you would like to nominate in this #Ultrahug event!

Also, check out the new Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Diapers, which support long-lasting leakage protection that won't let you down! From newborn to 35 lbs, Huggies has you covered and Only Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Diapers have a new, unique quilted liner to lock away wetness better than the rest!

With a conforming, gap-free fit to keep your active baby dry through the day, the Leak Lock® System has quick-absorbing layers for up to 12 hours of protection and confidence for you and your baby! 

 It is that simple!

What are you waiting for!? I can't wait to see all those deserving nominations and those happy faces!

nuNAAT Ultra Keratin Touch, 30-day Frizz Control Smoothing System!

Disclaimer: I was provided with product in order to give my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own, yours may differ! Thank you!

My hair is long, thick and frizzy, it makes for hard work in all seasons and trying to tame it usually takes a multitude of shampoos, conditioners, products, blow drying and straightening, if not more!

I was given the Ultra Keratin 30 day frizz control system from nuNAAT, to try out and I am in love with this system!

My hair, without any treatments, is fluffy, frizzy, thick and somewhat curly - it is, in short, a mess! Here I am on an actual good day...



I set out to use the system for a lengthy time, to give myself a real go at getting some results and, while it is a bit of a process, the pay of was well worth it, in the end!


The nuNAAT 30 day frizz control system is a way to get a hold of your hairs potential, while still keeping up with your normal routine. This animal-free Keratin system is great for a smoother air-dry ad a sleeker blow-dried look and with the shampoo, conditioner and smoothing gloss, you're on your way to great results!

Ultra Keratin Touch is great when used to: To regenerate and restore hair, Formaldehyde and sodium chloride free, Great for natural shine and softness and lasts up to 30 days!

I used all of the products and kept up with a blow-dry-after-shower routine and my hair is so much less "big" than it was prior. The curls are easier to straighten out with the dryer and the frizz is noticeably minimal to none at all.

This particular Ultra Keratin Touch, fro mnuNAAT is the best keratin product I've actually tried, and the first that worked this well for my hair!


I don't know if I would go through the effort of using the system on a regular basis, as there is a lot of work with the way you use it and how it works, but generally, if you're looking for a way to transition from your frizzy mop to a sleeker look, then this is the perfect way to start!

Therafit Shoes Does it AGAIN! With Women's Paloma Fashion Athletic Comfort Shoes!

Disclaimer: I was sent a pair of Therafit Shoes in order to complete this review. All opinions on the shoes are my own and your views may differ! Thank you!

I talk about Therafit shoes, a lot, and honestly they are the only shoes i've worn now, for years, other than one pair of no particular name boots that I happen to have for the days I want to put my feet through heck walking out and about town - suffice to say, when I got the chance to try out another pair of Therafit Shoes I couldn't say no!! 


This latest pair of shoes are Women's Paloma Fashion Athletic Shoes and they come in 4 different designs, based on patterns/prints seen on the runways of Europe, which include: Gold, Black, Floral and, the ones that I have - Pink Leopard!

As ever, these shoes are designed with your comfort (7 layers there of) in mind, including arch support, padded lining, shock absorbtion and deep heel cups for stabalization and support, plus great fit and style!


Having worn many Therafit shoes, I can honestly say that these are by far my favorite! I have a size 11 foot and I usually have to walk in new shoes to wear them in once I find a pair in my size, but these shoes just slip on, have a nice, slick, comfortable fit from the get-go!

I walked all day in these shoes and have never felt so comfortable! They have plenty of room, are a true size 11 and are not too tight or ill-fitting, they are comfortable on my soles and on the back of my leg/ankle  and they put a bounce in my step with a smile on my face and a flare of personality!

In fact, If cinderella's glass slippers were athletic shoes, then I am convinced that they'd be these Paloma Therafit Shoes! 

Check out Therafit Shoes, today, at http://www.therafitshoe.com/ and see the vast range of favorites and NEW designs, waiting for your feet to enjoy this Spring/Summer and all year around!

You will be glad you did!
