More than 2,000 theaters nationwide are staged to showcase the all-new sing-a-long version of Disney’s Oscar®-nominated, Golden Globe®-winning big-screen adventure “Frozen,” beginning this Friday,January 31st!


This movie has captured not only my 13 year old’s heart but my 16 year old’s and mine as well! Matter of fact, the week after we saw it, my youngest wanted to share it with her Aunt and Grandmother so off she went again. They fell in love too! If you’ve seen it, being able to sing-along without others saying “Shhhh!” sounds like so much fun. If you haven’t seen it, go and enjoy the energy of the crowd.

Here’s a clip.  Sing loud!  Enjoy:


Are you ready now? :->

A Favorite Cosmetic Product – Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer – It Cosmetics

Favorite Cosmetic - Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer - Ann Again and again Reviews

A cosmetic product that I absolutely love – I mean if-I-could-only-use-3-products-for-the-rest-of-my-life love is Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer from It Cosmetics. I can not believe how well this product works!

Favorite Cosmetic - Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer - Ann Again and again Reviews

My background in concealer usage goes back over 30 years. When I began wearing make-up I chose to wear lipgloss and concealer. The need was to cover skin breakouts and, over time, the desire to cover darkness under the eyes. Also, I have prominent redness on my the sides of my nose that just needs to fade away. Finding lipgloss/lipstick in flattering shades is fun to play with but honestly, the frustration in trying to find a concealer that didn’t look cakey, or flakey, or the correct shade, was so annoying. The money I have spent these past 30 years, in trying to find a product that looked just right, oh! I don’t even want to think about it.

While preparing your face for make-up you need to have as much of an even skin tone as possible for your chosen colors to benefit your face. Bye Bye Undereye concealer blends so smoothly, so softly on your skin it gives me the feeling that I’m applying delicate lotion, not this incredibly effective concealer. I highly recommend purchasing this product with the available brush. The dual-end brush is fantastic. The two together are $29.00. Now, I don’t spend money easily, I am naturally very frugal however, the quality and effectiveness of this product is completely worth the price. And you use such a small amount to get the desired coverage, you definitely get your money’s worth.

I had my sister try Bye Bye Undereye Concealer and she went on-line and bought it right then and there. Give it a try. If you like it, let me know. And, if it doesn’t quite fit the bill for you, let me know as well.

What are your favorite cosmetics?

Secret Millionaire's Club Contest - "Grow Your Own Business" - Ann Again and again Reviews
Do you have a child that is sparking with new ideas?  Are you hearing “Hey, you know what we should do?”  If so, get your child involved in the national online competition, the Warren Buffett Secret Millionaires Club  – “Grow Your Own Business Challenge”!

Secret Millionaire's Club Contest - "Grow Your Own Business"  - Ann Again and again Reviews

The third year of competition is underway for the Warren Buffett Secret Millionaires Club “Grow Your Own Business Challenge.”  This national online competition, open to kids 7-14, invites our future leaders to create a new business idea.  The competition, sponsored by the Fairholme Foundation to further its mission of improving financial education, launched October 22, 2013 and ends soon on January 31, 2014.

The Secret Millionaires Club is an animated TV series created by A2 Entertainment and airs on the Hub Network, a destination for kids and their families, featuring the voice of Warren Buffett as a mentor to a group of kids as they learn important financial and entrepreneurial lessons.

In May 2014, five individuals and three team finalists in the competition will be flown to Omaha, NE to present their winning ideas to Mr. Buffett and a panel of VIP judges. One Grand Prize individual and members of one Grand Prize team will each be awarded $5,000. The finalists will be invited to nominate a teacher who was most inspirational in the process to join them in Omaha and win up to $1,000. For full rules and to enter please visit www.SMCkids.com. A new addition to the final event this year is the University of Miami’s Launch Pad Entrepreneur Team. The team will host a workshop at the event to offer advice and guidance to the finalists.

Last year, almost 4,000 kids from across the country entered the “Grow Your Own Business Challenge.”   Last year’s winners were Matthew Myer from Cincinnati, OH and Team Kidtrepreneur (Kennedy Sabharwal, Sawyer Beeler and Spencer Sabharwal) from Lexington, KY. Their ideas stood out because of their creativity, entrepreneurship and inventiveness.

“I am proud of the difference that Secret Millionaires Club is making in the lives of today’s youth,” says Warren Buffett, CEO Berkshire Hathaway. “The skill set that all of the children who enter the competition are learning is something that they will have and build on for the rest of their lives.”

“The Fairholme Foundation is passionate about helping young adults succeed,” says Bruce Berkowitz, trustee of the Fairholme Foundation. “This program is a great way for us to provide guidance and information to bright and ambitious students to help them on the path to success.”

The Secret Millionaires Club Learn & Earn promotion offers an educational website and on-line materials for educators, parents and volunteers to extend the valuable lessons from Mr. Buffett into the classroom, home and afterschool programs. Girls, Inc., Junior Achievement and 4H are all participating in the program this year.

The “Grow Your Own Business Challenge” is a part of the Secret Millionaires Club Learn and Earn financial literacy promotion, which is sponsored exclusively by the Fairholme Foundation and reaches over 100,000 classrooms and youth organizations with free tools and lessons for teaching good financial habits to youth.

In October, the Secret Millionaires Club is also launching the SMC Business in a Box, Secret Millionaires Club DVD Volume 2 and a new book, Secret Millionaires Club: Warren Buffett’s 26 Secrets to Success in the Business of Life, written by Andy and Amy Heyward.

Herbal Essences Naked Volume Collection – Review

try Herbal Essence Naked Volume Collection for yourself - Ann Again and again Reviews

A few weeks ago I made a little video to show how easy it is to order the latest from Herbal Essences – The Naked Volume Collection – through Walmart.com. The latest hair product line from Herbal Essences is free of silicones, parabens, and dyes. With the beginning of the new year I’m doing what I can to eliminate unwanted toxins, chemicals (and pounds!) from our household and this product line fit with my goals.

 try Herbal Essence Naked Volume Collection for yourself - Ann Again and again Reviews

My kit arrived and I was so happy with the incredible scent of grapefruit and mossa mint oil. (I want it to come in a candle too! So delicious.) My hair is color-treated so I’m very careful to use products that won’t strip my hard-earned cash down the drain. I contacted the company and was told that the ingredients used in Herbal Essences Naked Collection are safe for color-treated hair. After using Herbal Essences – Naked Volume collection I am very happy with the results of my hair. The shampoo had a fine lather and the conditioner made my hair softer than I expected, to be honest.

When it comes to hair care products I usually spend a bit of money as I buy them from my hair stylist. I had an open mind trying this product and wasn’t expecting to like it this much! Of course the shampoo cleaned my hair, however the conditioner really surprised me with it’s effectiveness. Very smooth, soft results and I just love the scent.

My verdict: It’s good. I like it!

Purchasing more organically grown vegetables, using natural cleansers, and paying more attention to how I treat my body and mind are more of a focus for me now. Using Herbal Essences Naked collection fits perfectly with my plan. Give it a try and let me know what you think :->

While my family settles into the new year, we are not only recovering from a very busy season of celebrating the holidays and hosting 3 birthday parties (whew!) we are also helping our dear Chocolate Lab Benny recover from ingesting 4 pounds of chocolate.  Yes, 4 pounds!  One evening, while attending a gathering, we mistakenly left a 4 lbs. bag of M&M’s too low to the ground and Benny devoured it by the time we returned.  Benny spent Christmas day in the pet hospital and, with great care and attention, he is home and returning to his happy spirit.  What a scare!!!

His diet is gradually re-introducing the foods he should be eating, and he is responding very well.  We were offered the opportunity to try dog treats from The Honest Kitchen and Benny is enjoying his treats and his system is responding very well.  It’s nice to see his tail wagging again!

The Honest Kitchen – Smooches Dog Treats

As per the information that was sent along with our review sample, The Honest Kitchen uses a dehydrated process to naturally preserve the ingredients without the need for chemicals of any kind.  Dehydration is a gentle technique that removes only the moisture and retains most natural nutrients found in fresh, raw, whole food ingredients.  All ingredients are 100% human-grade, made in the USA and contain no corn, soy, rice, beet pulp or wheat. All meats are hormone and antibiotic free, fruits and vegetables are certified non-GMO, and grains are 100% organic.   Additionally, every box of food is made with love, in a human food facility in Illinois (not in a pet food plant) for the highest possible quality standards. Humans actually taste every ingredient that goes into these recipes as part of the product development process.

Our family looks forward to many, many more years with our sweet Benny (a.k.a. Banjo. a.k.a. Benjamin Thatcher Harrison).  We hope he’s learned his lesson that, although he’s  classified as a Chocolate Labrador, that doesn’t give him permission to actually ingest chocolate.   Enjoy The Honest Kitchen instead! :->
