Mom Me Time Sponsor Spotlight: Streekers

I love to dye my hair, the only problem is; I really want to use in your face colors and can’t see myself living with a bright pink or purple head of hair for 3 months.  So I normally end up buying that spray hair color and it leaves my hair feeling stiff and then ends up flaking off after an hour or so.

One day while browsing the internet I happened to stumble upon a photo of a girl with just streaks of color in her hair, after clicking on the photo I was taken to Streekers website and I knew I had to have them!! As a woman with naturally dark hair ( I’m talking almost black) I normally dye my hair a purplish red ( Chocolate Cherry anyone??). So I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to use the Streekers in my dark hair( we all know EVERYTHING shows up on the ones blessed with light colored hair).

The amazing company rep heard my dilemma and sent me a variety of colors to try, while advising me that the pink and red may not show up as bright. When they arrived, I was expecting just three different options, but I was overly joyed to see that she had sent me 6 of the 8 colors available!

Colors in order: Pink, Purple, Red, Green, Ultra Violet, and Blue

The girls and I headed straight to the mirror to test them out! Harm and Sassy wouldn’t let me get pictures of the colors in their hair, but where Sassy has a lighter brown hair all the colors show up bright and vibrant. Harm has my darker hair, so the blue, green and ultra violet are the ones that show up best on her. So it was time to try them in my dyed hair, I used each color on a different section on my hair and while the blue, green and ultra violet showed up best; you could also see the purple, pink and red.

The applying of the color is super simple, Sassy has started doing her own hair every morning before school. A tip when applying the color: do it sparingly! If you add too much color to one strand it will cause your hair to be stiff and the color will rub off. The color lasts throughout the day, Sassy wears a streak or two to school everyday and it is still there and as vibrant as it was when she put it in, and you can brush your hair without worrying about the color fading.. I love how easy it is to apply and when it is time to wash out, all the color comes out super easy, it is like rinsing your hair after dyeing. Just get in the shower, run the water through your hair until the water runs clear and then shampoo as normal.

I know you are probably wondering :What are Streekers? 
Streekers is true temporary hair color with a difference: not a mascara, not a crayon, not a paint. It’s instant, liquid, and brushable. Colors are vibrant on blondes or blonde streaks and show as subtle highlights on darker hair.

Streekers can be purchased online at the site for $11.95 with shipping of $3.95. The little bottles last a long time if you are only doing two or three streaks at a time. Sassy has been using the pink with two streaks everyday for the last 30 days and we haven’t even used half of the bottle yet.

bobble: The best re-usable filter water bottle!!

 

I know that as a mother, I should set a better example for daily water intake, but with all of the expensive water filter systems on the market, I just don’t have the time to compare prices and benefits. I will buy a case or two of regular bottled water each month and that will get the kids by, and they dislike tap water with a passion.

Quinten ends up refilling the disposable plastic water bottles once or twice and then tosses them, but I still feel that it is a waste of money. Sassy and Harmonie really don’t like the taste of water, so we end up mixing in some Crystal Light so they get the right amount of water ( I know..but it works). Quinten has been asking for a filtered reusable water bottle for a few weeks now, and when I came across bobble, I knew that I had found the perfect one for him!

Series 2 Limited Collectibles

 

My kids LOVE stuffed animals, so I knew when given the chance to review the Series 2 Limited PetCakes that Miss Sassy would be overly excited. Needless to say, I got two pictures of them and then Roco Coco was snatched!

We also received Honey Cakes, and come May one of you lucky readers will have the chance to win him! Sassy loves Roco so much that I haven’t seen him since he arrived. He goes everywhere she goes, school included! Hopefully Roco is learning something while at school. Sassy loves to carry Roco around and uses his “cup” to hold her “bling”. She has even asked if Roco could wear her clip on diamonds!

All of the animals in the Series 2 collection are adorable and I know that we will be purchasing the others along with Series 1 for Christmas. The ages are 3 & up, but even I at 29 still want one, they are just too darn cute!
