Don't Fret the Sweat!




We have reached those Tween years in our house,  which means the first of  all kinds fun things including the use of deodorant.  When putting my son to bed I was beginning to notice it was time for him to start wearing deodorant. I can't say it was an easy thing to convince my son he needed to use it everyday but I think he is finally starting to realize it is for his own good.  It has not been easy to convince him that using deodorant everyday is part of good personal hygiene.  I am also thankful to his teacher who asked that they bring in deodorant to put on everyday before gym class.  It has been good for him to see that everyone else his age is doing the same thing.

Unilever – the maker of Degree, Dove and Suave deodorants – has aligned with a great list of community partners and assembled a panel of experts to develop the educational website and resource  called DontFretTheSweat.com.  It is a great source for parents to help with the dialogue of discussing with your Tween the importance of wearing deodorant as part of good personal hygiene.

I have to say now that the deodorant issue has been solved my son actually thinks he is pretty cool because he can pick out his own deodorant as well as body wash for men.  I guess the fun is just beginning.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Unilever and received the items necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate

One World One Love-Michael Bolton CD Giveaway


As a teenager growing up I always liked listening to Michael Bolton.  I really enjoyed his music and loved his beautiful smile.  Although I had not heard him for years, with his new album One World One Love  I have found that he still makes great music and still has that same beautiful smile.

.

 One World One Love is the new album  from this two-time Grammy Award-winner. On this record, he’s collaborated with a number of exciting talents including award-winning singer/songwriters Lady Gaga and Ne-yo.  This album is a collection of memorably uplifting pop songs with a fresh sound without losing the classic Bolton vocal signature.  My favorite song on the album happens to be a "Crazy Love"  which is a cover of the Van Morrison song from the 70's.

Along with this new album Michael will also be embarking on a 6-month World Tour with stops across the US and Europe through September of 2010.  You can get more information visit his website michaelbolton.com.  You can also follow find Michael on twitter and on facebook.


Music Moms also has a copy of One World One Love  to give away to one of my readers.  Just leave a comment below telling me what music you are enjoying listening to at the moment.

I have been on a little blogging break enjoying life.  I was going to do a few reviews but I have been busier than I thought I would be enjoying God's handy work.  I will be glad to be home though to see my family.
