L'Oréal EverCurl

I had super naturally curly hair when I was younger. I then started to color and use heat styling on my hair and it is now less curly, but still wavy. I need product to help with my waves so I tried this Ever Curl from L'oreal. It smells great, helps with frizz, and won't make your hair greasy or stiff. Try it out to help tame your waves.

I received L'Oreal EVER products complimentary, but all opinions are my own.

The New DISNEY BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

I remember going to the theater with my sister-in-law in 1991 to see Disney's animated film Beauty and the Beast.  The library dance scene looked so unbelievably real. I was hooked on the movie and the music instantly.
You can only imagine my excitement when Disney announced a live-action adaptation of the Studio's animated classic. It is even more exciting to here the cast: Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast and as the Prince, Luke Evans as Gaston, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Josh Gad as LeFou, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Audra McDonald as Garderobe, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.
Throw in Ariana Grande and John Legend singing the Beauty and the Beast iconic song and this is sure to a hit that I am so excited to see when it opens in theaters everywhere on March 17, 2017.

MIDWAY ICE CASTLES

I have been trying to see the ice castles in Midway for years, but the crazy winter weather seems to warm up before my visit date and melts the ice. However, this year, I made it!
The ice castles are an amazing sight to behold.
 You can purchase your tickets online for a certain day and time. This is really nice so it isn't super crowded.

The first castle was built in Alpine, Utah, in the front yard of Brent Christensen. He was building an ice cave for his daughter and then the Ice Castle concept was started.

 It is like a Frozen movie lover's dream come true. There are slides, mazes, and fountains that are available all day/night.
Make sure you dress warm during your visit because you are walking around ice! It's like being in the frozen foods section at the grocery store the entire visit.
The ice looks blue during the day. At night, there are different colored lights that illuminate the ice masses. Some nights even have fire dancers/entertainers and you just might see Elsa or Ana princesses available for a picture while you're there.
These are a must see for the entire family. The castle staff encourage you pull your small children in a sled and leave the stroller at home. Pets are not allowed either (to prevent yellow snow).

There are ice castles in UT, NH, MN, WI, and AB in Canada.
