Win $50! Ten Thankful Turkeys Review

Ten Thankful Turkeys by Angela Muse

About the Book

Recommended for children ages 2-8, Ten Thankful Turkeys is a 32-page story that follows ten turkeys as they prepare for an important celebration.


My review:

This is a cute Thanksgiving picture book. While one or two of the rhymes are a bit of a stretch, I really enjoyed reading this holiday story to my kids. I like the way that the author described the preparations that go into making a Thanksgiving meal, and the theme of gratitude. My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed the images in this book! They are brightly coloured and so much fun to flip through.

Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 Product Line Review


I was recently selected to take part in a Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 product review campaign, and wanted to share my thoughts! I received the products to try for free in exchange for an honest review on the BzzAgent website, but was not asked (and did not receive any compensation) to post my opinions here.

Ultimate 10 Shampoo – I love the scent of this product, and often receive compliments about how pretty my hair smells after using it!

When I first gave it a try, the shampoo stood out as being silky smooth feeling; and after massaging it into my hair, my whole hands felt soft. It surprised me that when I rinsed the product out my hair didn’t feel oily or smooth. It was actually very dry, because the product had stripped all of the oils and residue from my hair. I like to use conditioner so I wasn’t too worried about it, but I wouldn’t recommend using just the shampoo on its own. If conditioner isn’t your thing, the BB Crème is a great alternative that can be applied after showering.

Ultimate 10 Conditioner – This conditioner does a great job of restoring moisture. My hair looks shinier, feels lighter, and smells amazing after I use it!

As summer turns to fall; my long, straight, and quite fine, hair typically looks voluminous in an “it looks like you haven’t brushed your hair in days” sort of way. And although I’m not a fan of the frizz, I don’t particularly like when my lovely locks fall completely flat. I really appreciate that this conditioner doesn’t weight my hair down and leave it looking limp. I would typically have to use a flat iron and styling products to achieve this look. And with two little girls who fill my days with adventure, I just don’t have time for that.

Ultimate 10 BB Crème – This product is my Ultimate favourite! It was the first item that my oldest daughter and I reached for when my Bzz Kit showed up at the door. Even without having used the other products, the Crème did a great job of taming our wild manes.

While I like using it myself, the true magic for me happens when I use the BB Crème on my kids.

Brushing through the tangled hair of two unhappy girls as we tried to rush out the door every morning was an epic struggle. Now I quickly slather the BB Crème into my 3 year old’s hair and the brush slides through the knots easily (assuming she’ll sit still). My 6 year old daughter has even become excited about doing her own hair, and heads into the bathroom to do it – every day – without any prompting.

This is a BIG deal for me. I was becoming exasperated with battling to get a brush even close to these girls in the morning, and had basically given up. I bought them each a little brush to put in their back packs, and hoped that someone would point out their messy hair and they would be motivated to take better care of it. (As you probably guessed, that never happened.)

Since we’ve started using the Ultimate 10 line it’s made for much happier mornings in our home, and it’s even boosted my confidence because I feel great when we leave the house looking more put together.

Have you tried any of the Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 Products? I would love to hear about your experience!
