Have you ever broken the screen on your iPhone? Did you know that there is an easy service for iPhone screen repair as well as other devices? YES! It’s iHeart Repair.

The moment of a screen break always feels like a small tragedy. You’re holding your smartphone when all of a sudden you feel it slip out of your hand. You watch it tumble downwards in what seems like slow motion, but you’re still not able to catch it before it hits the ground. Then comes a few seconds of holding your breath while you pick it up to see if it’s damaged. If you’re lucky it is perfectly fine and you happily exhale. If you’re less lucky, you get a scratch or ding that doesn’t look nice, but won’t affect the operation of your phone. If you’re really unlucky, like I have been several times, your phone screen is shattered. AAAAAGGGGH!

Broken iPhones

Luckily, a shattered screen doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to replace that very expensive handheld piece of technology. iHeart Repair can replace the broken screen on your iPhone, iPad or other mobile devices.

We had two very sad looking iPhone 5 screens – one cracked by my drop and one by my husband’s. I had tried using mine for a while by putting a piece of sticky plastic wrap over it (which actually is good to use in a pinch), but I couldn’t go on using it like that. Luckily, I had the opportunity to try the services of iHeart Repair.

I might as well start right off the bat by saying there is no question that if/when ever have a broken iPhone screen (or screen on other devices) I will without a doubt send it to iHeart Repairfor their iPhone screen repair. I had delayed sending it off to them and continued to suffer through the screen with the plastic wrap because I wasn’t looking forward to being without my phone. I should have sent it off a lot sooner, because the time between when I sent off my phone with my mail carrier to when she brought it back again was only 5 days!

And the quality of the job was phenomenal! You could never tell that either of these phones no longer had their original screens – they look perfect. The customer service at iHeart Repair was also top notch. Very quick responses and very nice and courteous as well. I really couldn’t have asked for more.

Have all the guests sit in a circle, each of them holding a shot glass.
One person is chosen to sit in the middle of the circle, with the potato.
Play some Irish or Celtic music.
The center person hands the potato to someone in the circle, while the music begins playing.
The potato is passed around until the music stops.
The person holding the potato when the music stops must take a shot of beer or whiskey.
The game keeps going until there is only one person left in the circle.
The winner gets to keep the potato and gets a cool prize like an Irish Tenor’s CD, Irish candies or case of Guinness.

 FabFitFun Subscription Box Review

Want to know a few things that I LOVE?  I love surprises, getting things in the mail, trying new products that celebrities even use, and attempting to live a healthy lifestyle.  Once I discovered the FabFitFun Subscription Box, I realized that I could get all of those things I mentioned that I love in just one delivery, four times a year.

unnamed (1)

FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription service that sends you the latest in beauty and fashion, fitness, and wellness every season.  The box is curated by Guilana Rancic and the FabFitFun team, and each season is guaranteed to have $225+ worth of full sized product!  I absolutely LOVE that they don’t send you those little one-time use sample size products, but rather full size products that you can enjoy again and again.  While this subscription box IS on the pricier side ($49 per box), you only receive a box four times a year, and each box is guaranteed to be at least four times the value of what you paid (my Winter Box added up to $383.59!).  Plus, it only breaks down to around $16 per month.

Want to get a FabFitFun box for yourself?  The Spring Box is getting ready to launch within the next few weeks.  Click here to sign up and use the promo code NEW5 to save $5 off your first box!

Here’s what I received in my first FabFitFun box (Winter 2014):

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive (Retail $39) – Green Apple has always been one of my favorite scents.  It reminds me of those caramel apple pops I would eat when I was little :)  I love peels, but don’t usually like the smell.  Peels are usually strongly scented of chemicals, or a fruit that I don’t especially care for such as peach, but I really love the scent of this one.  It is made of a certified organic formula and helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while also lightening the darker spots on your face.  It’s like a spa visit in your own home!

L’Oreal Excellence Age Perfect Hair Color Review – I Put It to the Test!

L'orealL’Oreal Excellence Age Perfect Hair Color Review

As of 2015, it has been 25 years that I have been coloring my hair! That’s quite a long time. Shortly after I graduated college I decided that the darkening of my once super-blonde hair had to stop. So, I gradually brought my hair color back to the light blonde of my childhood. I think that is a common thing among blondes. If you start life as a blonde you always “feel” like a blonde even if your hair color darkens over the years.

One positive aspect of having lighter hair is that the gray doesn’t seem to be quite as noticeable. My dark-haired husband 7 years my junior had a good amount of gray hair long before I did. BUT, that good luck couldn’t last forever and I now see more and more gray hairs peeking out at my roots. The biggest problem with them is that they can be very resistant to color! I hate going through the process of coloring my hair at home only to see a few of those gray hairs still poking their way out when I’m finished. Its’ so frustrating!!


So, I was happy to give L’Oreal Excellence Age Perfect hair color a try. It’s specifically designed for “mature” hair and available in 8 different shades. You can determine the one that is right for you using the L’Oreal hair color shade consultation tool. Whichever you choose, the formula creates layered tones that make your hair look thicker, fuller and full of life. It is made with Pro-Keratine complex, a new layered tone technology that creates natural-looking highs and lows. It offers 100% gray coverage and beautifully blended regrowth.

Before L’Oreal Excellence Age Perfect

So earlier this week it was definitely  time to color my hair. As you can see in the picture above (in which I also am not wearing any makeup!) the gray was sneaking in, particularly along my part. I was ready to put the L’Oreal Excellence Age Perfect to the test!

L’Oreal Excellence Age Perfect Contents

The very first thing I noticed when opening the box was the patented easy-application brush. I LOVE this brush! It made even application of the color so easy. I am guilty of often rushing through the hair coloring process and I often regret it because I will miss areas and that looks really bad! With the brush it was easy to brush the color through all of my hair – – that’s what the wide section of the brush if for. But what I REALLY like is the small section of the brush. This helps you to get all of those fine little hairs at your temples and around the hairline that can easily be missed.

L’Oreal Excellence Age Perfect Brush

I was so happy with the way the color turned out. My hair looks shiny with a deep color that reflects the highlights. I’m amazed that such a simple process can make such great highlights! The hair also feels so soft and well-conditioned. And even better – there is no sign of those pesky grays anywhere! I will definitely continue using L’Oreal Excellence Age Perfect as my new go-to hair color.
