A must have for this summer the Conair® 20-Piece Lithium Ion Haircut Kit

"I was sent the Conair® 20-Piece Lithium Ion Haircut Kit for review. All opinions are my own"

I know first hand the cost of hair cuts for guys.  My son and husband both need their hair cut every 4 weeks and at 16 dollars each that can add up quickly.  With the Conair® 20-Piece Lithium Ion Haircut Kit I will save quite a bit of money this year and cut their hair myself.

The Conair® 20-Piece Lithium Ion Haircut Kit features include:

·         Lithium battery: Provides over one hour of sustained power performance for reliable, cord-free cutting (can also be used with the cord)
·         Quick-charge feature: Three-hour full charge allows for 75 minutes of use, while 15 minutes of full power can be available when charged for only 15 minutes for quick touch-ups, etc.
·         Precision-engineered high-grade hardened stainless steel blade technology: Provides a unique super sharp cutting angle for smooth, effortless cutting on any hair length or type
·         Taper control for custom settings
·         High-power motor for ultra-powerful cutting action
·         Lightweight for easy handling during use
·         Limited 5-year warranty

The kit includes:

·         10 guide combs for different hair lengths (including left and right ear taper combs)
·         Blade guard for easy maintenance and protection of the clipper blades
·         Barber scissors
·         Two special combs
·         Full-length barber cape
·         Cleaning brush and lubricating oil

 This hair cutting kit works awesome. It glides through the hair easily and with all the pieces included I can choose how long or short to cut and know Im not going to make a mistake. I love that it can be used without a cord and it has the 10 guide combs, scissors and even a cape.  Everything I need to do the boys hair at home. 

I decided to give the boys matching high and tights (military cuts)  I think their hair looks awesome. 

You can purchase the Conair® 20-Piece Lithium Ion Haircut Kit nationwide at mass market and drugstore retailers, for an average retail price of $49.99. For more information, visit

Wholesale Costume Club...Costumes for all ages

My son's at the age where he likes to dress up and pretend to be superheros and his other favorite characters.  It's so neat to watch him pretend to fly around the house and save the world from bad guys. It makes it even more cute when he is dressed up like a super hero.

Lately his new favorite thing is Super Mario and he seriously is obsessed. So I wanted him to have a costume to pretend he is Mario.  Wholesale Costume Club was kind enough to send us one to review.

I was extremely impressed with Wholesale Costume Club.  They offer costumes at very reasonable prices for all ages.  If you become a member for $5 a year you get even lower prices. A must for a mom like me who plans on purchasing several costumes for play or even a mom who has more than one child and needs Halloween costumes.

The Child Deluxe Super Mario Bros Mario Costume sent to Shane was Great.  It fit him perfectly. The only small issue was the gloves were a bit big for his hands but I don't see him wanting to keep them on so it wasn't a major issue. They costume is a lightweight material with Velcro closure for easy removal.  It also included a Mario hat, mustache, gloves and a blow up belly.  Perfect to transform him into Mario.

Here he is in his costume minus the mustache :)
