Spark Their Imagination with Nenuco's Let's Play School

During the holidays I shared with you an amazing company who was brand new to me, Famosa. For over 4 months now my daughter has been enjoying the Nenuco Sleep with Me Baby Doll & Cradle. I was pleasantly please with the quality and features of the Sleep with Me Baby Doll and her fun accessory. Well once again Nenuco has hit it out of the park with their Let’s Play School Set, sparking creativity and imagination within my princess.

Now your little one can be the teacher with this amazing set including a brilliant 16.5” doll, dressed in her school attire and equipped with darling little glasses. Made to match there is also a special pair of glasses for the teacher, desk, white board and lesson plans.

There is a ton of thought put into this set right down to the working school bell. The “teacher's board” presents a dry erase board on the front (eraser, dry erase marker and crayons included) and storage desk in the rear, to keep lesson plans and writing utensils neat and organized. You’ll also note a clock, weather indicator, and body diagram on the board. The body diagram is atomically correct, so to speak.

This set truly represents creative play and is sure to spark the imagination of any little girl. Who among us doesn't remember playing teacher to our dolls? The Nenuco Let's Play School set takes that experience to a whole new level with engaging lesson plans, loads of detail and that classroom feel. All made complete with a beautifully crafted, quality doll for teaching and playing.

There is nothing I enjoy more than having the opportunity to sit in the background and watch my daughter engage her imagination. And this set gives her the opportunity to do so, in so many different ways. This has got to be our favorite play set yet, all at an affordable price.

Buy It: Available at and other national chains; online, including Amazon, and on store shelves for the SRP of $39.99.

Topps Baseball Series 1 (Review & Giveaway)

Baseball cards have always had a place in my life. From my earliest childhood memories of my father spending hours putting together sets, to spending hours with my husband open packs, and again, putting together sets. I guess it was only natural that my own boys developed the same love for card collecting.

Wordless Wednesday: The King has Arrived (Linky)

Thank you all for sticking with me the past few weeks. Our newest addition was finally released from NICU yesterday and we are loving every minute of him. It will probably be another week before things get back to normal as far as the blog goes. But I wanted to share some pics and let you all in on the good news.

And here is the King, as the kids call him. You know, King Julian of Madagascar ;)

Treat Your Hair to the Best with the Pro Naturals Hair Repair System

Hair care has always been important to me no matter what the cost. I am the queen of over processing and my hair is usually in need of all the TLC it can get. When I was introduced to the Pro Naturals Hair Repair System I was intrigued due to the ingredient Pure Moroccan Oil. My hair has always responded well to Moroccan Oil based products and as a bonus I love the smell.

Pro Naturals Hair Repair System

The Pro Naturals Hair Repair System is an all-natural, silicone and sulfate free formula, which includes a luxurious line of products made with natural high quality ingredients including 100% Pure Moroccan Oil. And you can rest assure it is pure Moroccan Oil. Moroccan oil can be pricey and often you will find you’re not getting pure Morroccan Oil in products that make the claim. The Pro Naturals set even includes a certificate of authenticity.

Pro Naturals 100% Pure Moroccan Oil

The Pro Naturals System is a 4 step hair repair system that you can use with your current hair care routine at home. In fact, you don’t even have to use this product daily to see a difference, just 1 week every 6 weeks! 

Whats in the box:
  • 1 280ml Bottle Pro Naturals Hair Shampoo.
  • 1 280ml Bottle Pro Naturals Hair Conditioner.
  • 1 250ml Pro Naturals Hair Mask.
  • 1 50ml Pro Naturals Argan Hair Oil.
  •  Product Authenticity Hologram Seal.

The system is easy to use just wash your hair with the shampoo and conditioner as you normally would. The hair mask is a thick, pleasant smelling cream that sits in the hair for about 30 minutes before being rinsed out. You can combine some Argan oil with the mask or use it separately before or after you’ve styled you hair for a polished look. With the first use I noticed my hair texture, shade, and overall look was different. I first wondered if it was stripping my color, but overtime realized it was truly clarifying my blonde; removing the built up residue from styling products and the harsh effects of the environment like chlorine from the pool. I was shocked to notice a difference so quickly.

Pro Naturals Hair Mask

With each step of the Pro Naturals Hair Repair System, your hair is being restored back to its normal lustrous condition as it repairs and protects the cuticle layer, improving strength and elasticity and giving you healthy, vibrant and super shiny hair. 

This isn’t a greasy oil, it’s a natural oil that works with your hair providing strength and sheen. I love how my hair shines after a treatment. And trust me it isn’t often that my incredible damaged hair shines!

Buy It: Find this system at for the SRP of $159.99 for the complete system.
