ENDED: HEB Beauty Pick of the Month: Orchid Facial Products Review (+ giveaway) #HEBBEAUTY

I am one very blessed lady! In the new year I will continue to review Beauty products for HEB! This month I got to review Orchid Face Products! Who doesn’t want a smoother, blemish free, moisturized face? I was sent Acne Spot Treatment (which I was able to use right away…thanks Holiday Stress and hormones!), Anti-aging Eye Roller, Thermal Clay Mask, and a Firming Lift Face Serum.

My favorite was the Eye Roller! It has a little metal ball on the end to make the treatment glide right on! I also enjoyed how light the face serum was! It was NOT greasy at all! The acne spot treatment I already mentioned above but wanted to add…that my hubby has now confiscated this from me…because he “needs it worse then I do” (that’s according to HIM!)

And last…I loved the face mask! I could feel the texture taking my dead skin cells off! It left my face feeling like a babys…BELLY! :)

HEB Beauty pick of the month: John Frieda Straightening Iron Review (+ Giveaway) #HEBbeauty

I have crazy half wavy, have straight hair. It’s annoying! On days when I am out of time, I scrunch it and hate it all day long! On the other days, I enjoy the look of it straightened! I was recently sent a John Frieda Premium Straightening Iron as an HEB Beauty Blogger to test out! I’ve used a few different flat irons and was up for the challenge!

Now, I have girls…who love for me to do things to their hair. One has hair like mine…bless her little heart! The other has board straight hair…and wants carls! So thanks to the temperature setting on the John Frieda Straightening Iron, I was able to turn it down and play with my girls hair! Chloe, my crazy haired child was super easy to fix! The flat iron slid right down her hair and made it looks sleek and silky! (See before and after picts below!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emma, on the other hand has straight hair! I was able to add curl and volume with the John Freida Straightening Iron to her hair! (See below for the added volume and curl…her bangs are what ALL of her hair normally looks like…totally flat!)

As a mom, I love that this iron has temperature settings! I can turn it up for my hair, and down for the girls hair! This has proven to be a great flat iron and at a great price!

ENDED: HEB Beauty Pick of the Month: Pantene Pro-V Keratin Protection Creme and more (+Giveaway)

If there is one thing that I LOVE to try more and more of, it’s Shampoos and hair products! I have three girls all with VERY different hair textures. Finding the one shampoo and conditioner that works for everyone is my quest! I have crazy fine hair that has just enough curl to annoy me. I flat Iron it a lot which is horrible for it. Pantene Pro-V has a Split End Repair Crème in their Medium-Thick Hair Solutions collection.  This Keratin protection crème helps repair split ends and protect against future damage.  In fact, print a coupon HERE for 50% off Keratin Protection Creme 5.1 oz. when you purchase 2 Pantene Shampoo or Conditioners 25.4 oz.! I have been using this creme for a few days now and can not wait to see how much longer I can go between hair cuts. I am trying to grow my hair out, but have to go get the split ends trimmed every now and then.

The Keratin Protection Creme is formulated to result in strong, healthy hair with fewer split ends. It helps bind existing split ends and helps to prevent split ends with continued use and last but not least it protects your hair from the friction caused by brushing and styling. (My Chi damaged hair…)

I got to try this and two lucky readers will also receive a bottle of Pantene Pro-V Split End Repair, a bottle of Pantene Pro-V Shampoo and a bottle of Pantene Pro-V Conditioner! This giveaway ends on 9/30 at 5:PM CST! To enter, do one of the following:

#HEBack2School / Conagra Meal Maker Cook off winning Recipes

Welcome, those who are visiting for the first time! Yesterday I was in San Antonio completing in the HEB/Conagra Meal Maker Challenge Cook off.  Thank you everyone who voted for me! You truly gave me the opportunity to complete in this final challenge! Here are the quick and easy recipes that I made:

Breakfast Wrap
Egg beaters
HEB Frozen Fajita veggies
Colby/Jack Cheese cubes

Sausage Crumbles

Instructions:
Saute Veggies in butter, then add sausage crumbles. Set aside! Cook Egg Beaters, and mix in cheese cubes. Roll up in Tortillas and enjoy!

Sandwich Braid
Hebrew National Franks
Microwavable Precooked Bacon
Honey Mustard
Swiss Cheese slices
Rolled Pizza Dough (in the refrigerated section)

Roll out Pizza dough. Cut Hebrew National Franks length wise and wrap each in bacon. Lay in center of dough. Drizzle honey mustard over the top and top with Swiss cheese. Cut small slits in the sides of dough and tie each to the opposite side creating a braided look. Bake as directed.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Puff
3/4 cup Peter Pan Peanut Butter

HEB Meal Maker Challenge Week #4 Quick & easy meal with HEB Frozen Veggies #HEBack2School

 

We are now in Week 4, the final week of HEB’s Meal Maker Challenge! Currently I am in 2nd place and would love your daily vote to stay there! We were challenged to make a meal with 10 ingredients or less and in 45 minutes or less and the star ingredient this week…HEB Frozen Veggies. As a mom, I am always looking for ways to sneak veggies in my kiddos meals! This recipe worked great for that! They were none the wiser!

 

What you will need for this versatile recipe:

  • HEB Frozen Corn
  • 1 box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
  • 1 package of hotdogs
  •  Egg Beaters (or 1 egg)
  • 1 Can of Rotel (optional)

I always try to make kid friendly meals that I can easily adapt for adults! Today’s recipe is a Corn Dog Muffin!  Pop HEB Frozen Corn in the microwave and cook as directed. In the mean time, mix Jiffy mix as instructed on the box. Once corn is done, add 1 cup to the Corn Muffin mixture. Put small amount in each muffin tin, put 1/3 hotdog in each muffin tin, then top with remaining mixture. Bake as directed, about 15 minutes. For the adult version, I added drained Rotel to the mix.

My girls love corndogs and I thought this would be a healthier way to make them. (I don’t fry much in my house!) My hubby thought that they were okay…but too much of a “kid food”  We added HEB’s Frozen Broccoli and topped with cheese as a healthy side to this meal. We only used half a bag of each…they are large portions for a family of 5 to eat in one setting.

Starting on Wednesday and running thru the September 6th, you can buy Healthy Choice Steamers and get FREE HEB Frozen Vegetables (with instore coupon!) Stock up now for quick and easy meals as your kids go back to school!
