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.

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 :->

Managing Students Spending With Help From Bluebird Debit Card From American Express And Walmart

Ann Again and again Reviews Bluebird debit Card from American Express

While visiting the lovely beach town Oceanside on the Oregon Coast I looked down on the gravely sidewalk and found a $5 bill.  After I picked it up I looked around for anyone that might be searching their pockets, looking for money that wasn’t where they thought it was.  When I got back to the car I told my girls what I found and without skipping a beat I hear “Can I have it?!”  We visited a store later and my 15 year old found a little bear that touched her heart.  She asked “Mom, can I get this?  It’s only $5 and that’s what you just found.”  I handed her the bill and said, ‘Here.  This is yours now.  And don’t you have an event coming up that you wanted money for?  Do you want to save?  Or, do you want that bear?’  She didn’t buy the bear.  Funny, when it was my money spending it was no big deal but, when it was her money, the bill stayed in her pocket.

Learning money management is an on-going, daily lesson, no matter what age you are.  A recent study showed:

Concerns over Money Management

  • Parents and students align when it came to concerns about money management and overspending:
    • 60 percent of parents concerned that their child will spend more than is available
    • 80 percent of students worried that they will spend more than is available
      • However, while more than half of parents believe their children are still learning about responsible money management, more than half of students think they actually handle money well.

Students Believe they are Equipped to Manage Their Own Money:  More than one-half (54%) of students say they manage their money very well – fewer parents concur (44%).  Most parents say their child entering college this fall is OK at managing money – they are currently learning.

  • Students Don’t Want to Go Over Budget: Eight-in-ten students are concerned (very or somewhat) with having money readily available for an emergency (81%), spending more than they have or staying within budget (80% each).   

Bluebird from American Express and WalMart - Ann Again and again Reviews

With regard to this survey I am even more pleased with the Bluebird debit card from American Express and Walmart.  I signed up for an account in my name and one for my 15 year old daughter as well. I was concerned about over draft fees and found that Bluebird has no over draft fees.  I had to call and clarify if what I was reading on their FAQ page was true and yes, it’s true.  I asked, ‘So, for example, if my student thinks she has $20 in her account and only has $18 there is no overdraft fee?”  They said, “That’s right.  When you make another deposit to her account we will deduct the $2.00 to make up the balance.”   The benefit of using the Bluebird debit card increased for me after this call.  My daughter is excited about her financial responsibility and I feel more secure about this next step.

Bluebird from American Express and WalMart - Ann Again and again Reviews

I have been able to easily access our accounts on-line, adding and/or transferring funds quickly.   When my daughter makes a purchase I can see on-line where the purchase was made, and for how much.  For the beginning stages of money management this is a great tool.  And, when I have questions that need more clarification I give them a call.  I have received prompt attention by a live person on the other end of the telephone.  A real person.  My call to them just yesterday (I have a lot of questions ;-> ) the representative wasn’t sure he had the correct information and found a Supervisor who could help me.  I have made 4 calls to Bluebird, some to clarify what I was reading, some to find out more information,  and every call has been a positive experience.

I believe Bluebird debit card from American Express and Walmart is a smart move.  You can sign-up for a card free of charge on-line at Bluebird.com.  Or, you can go to your participating Walmart and receive a starter kit for $5 and begin your account at that very moment.  If you do sign up for a Bluebird account please come back here and share your experience!   www.bluebird.com

My Daughter's In Control of Her Back-To-School Spending With Bluebird from American Express and Walmart

Bluebird debit card from American Express and WalMart - Ann Again and again Reviews

School begins in two and a half weeks so my little High School Sophomore Katie and I are beginning to get her necessary supplies. I feel it’s important that she learns how to plan and budget, so she’s taking more of the lead with her back-to-school purchases this year. I’ve been introduced to a new service offered by American Express and Walmart that will help make budgeting and tracking of expenses easier, Bluebird, the checking and debit alternative from American Express.

Bluebird from American Express and WalMart - Ann Again and again Reviews

Funds can be loaded to the account at any participating Walmart or conveniently accessed online at Bluebird.com. I can load any dollar amount I want into her Bluebird account, watch her spending practices and, if there’s some spending going on that I’m not too sure about, I can also stop the spending functionality of the account as well. (‘You’re trying to buy $50 worth of candy? Um, I don’t think so.’).

Katie’s finding that she’s misplacing her favorite mechanical pencils way too often so she’s learned to load up when she spots a good deal. Is there any particular school item your child(ren) seem to misplace? (Are the pencils at a party with the un-matched socks?)









Bluebird from American Express and WalMart - Ann Again and again Reviews


Composition Books are a must in High School so she’ll load up on those as well. Last year I thought I bought too many but no, I had to buy more mid-way through. Did your school supply list make it to the end of the year? Or, did you have to restock too?







So far so good on the school supplies. There’s more on the list but we’ll save that for after lunch. I am very grateful that my Katie doesn’t have the “shopping gene”.


I have to say I am really happy with the Bluebird account and it’s functionality. This has become the way we pay Katie her allowance. I don’t always have cash on hand and making a trip to the ATM isn’t always convenient. When it’s time, we load money onto Katie’s Bluebird account through on-line transfer and then it’s up to her to budget her spending. No monthly fees, no overdraft charges. Funds can be loaded online through a bank account such as a savings or checking account, debit cards, direct deposit, remote check capture via the mobile app and cash loading at Walmart registers. Pretty cool.

There are more offerings and benefits from using the Bluebird account. I’ll be sharing those with you on my next update. To read more about Bluebird from American Express and Walmart visit: Bluebird by American Express
