I Can't Wait Until DWTS Airs ...I'm Having Withdrawls


I can believe that it is almost time for Season 15 of DWTS can you?? The All Stars cast this season is going to be great minus watching the Palin chic.I still can't get over the fact that ABC s having her come back. She was not a great dancer at all. Her partner led her across the floor all of the time. It was kind of sickening to watch but of course we all know why she is coming back..for ratings, that is why! Of course we will see the former Governor of Alaska, Sara Palin sitting in the audience with the camera staring her down. Enough about her.

So who are you happy to see dance this season? I think this is going to be a real competition from the get go considering there a five mirror ball champs that will be dancing, like Kelly, Drew, Emmit, Helio C. & the Apollo guy. Emmit , Kirstie and Apollo are missing in the above picture, and of course the fans picture too. Who would you like to see from Carson, Kyle or Sabrina?

I, myself  voted for Kyle Massey each day.While I always loved seeing Carson dance, and just be himself, he was not the best dancer He tried hard, but couldn't keep up with the big dogs. Sabrina was sent home way too early on her season from what I hear. I don't really remember it, but I'm sure people thought she was safe since she danced well, but wasn't. Just like China Phillips & Audrina Partridge to name a few. They were sent home to soon. If Kyle gets chosen which I hope he does, I pray that Lacy will be his partner. I missed not seeing her last season, and they had an unbelievable chemistry between them. Remember their Freestyle dance which landed in the finale?

I remember this dance  very clearly in my head. They scored a perfect 30, a it was well deserved. It even put a smile on Mr. Grouchy's face. I hope he enjoyed his summer, and comes back with a nicer attitude than in the past. He is a hard one to please for sure, ask Maksim C.? That poor guy has the hardest time with Mr. Len. They need to respect one another, and act like adults. Len has said some nasty stuff in the past, which fires Max up.

Last but not least Melissa Rycroft Strickland & Tony Dovolani together at last. I never thought I would see them dance again. I loved when Melissa was asked to come on and dance after her public break up with the idiot loser J.M. Thanks to ABC for publicly humiliating them both. Jason deserved what he had coming. My heart broke for poor Melissa,but look at her now, she's a mom, a wife to a great hubby, has her own reality show &back on DWTS All Stars & she wrote a book called "My Reality, by Melissa Rycroft.". Not too shabby for a gal who was once a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader She has what it takes to dance,and is such a beautiful person inside and out. Tony Dovolani has dance every season I'm pretty sure and has yet to win. He has won plenty of other competitions world wide, but not the mirror ball trophy. I think they will be right in the finale again! Please bring it heavy Melissa & Tony. I really want Tony Dovolani to win this season, but if Kyle Massey is selected for the last pick, then we might have a problem because  love him too. Derek Hough is such the nicest guy ever. I was lucky enough to meet him over the summer, and fell in love with hi. We all know he can dance, and is a perfectionist, and has 3 Mirror Ball Trophies already, so give someone else a chance. lo. I hope to be blogging each week as the competition goes along, as I have in the past. Last year I took a break due to medical issues.

I just hope and pray that the Palin chick will be sent home the first week. I can't stand her, or her mother. If one of the champs go first before her, you probably will hear me yelling and screaming. That is how sick I get when I watch her. I hope you all enjoy yor week! Leave a comment below, and let me know what your thinking of this season if you watch the show. I'm a huge DWTS fan, and always have wanted to be on the set live Maybe some day.

Conair You Reel 1875 Watt Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styler Review & Conair Impresions Brush Giveaway

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Conair, I was recently able to review the Coniar You Reel 1875 Watt Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styler Model#264XR , and I couldn't have been any happier with a blow dryer.I have been through several in my life, and this is by far one of my favorites. The Conair You Reel 1875 Watt Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styler is compact enough to take it on the go. It has a cord that zips into place at the push of a button, which I love. Have you ever been in a hurry and don't have the time to wind up the cord? You don't have to worry about that with this beauty of a blow dryer. The color is my all time favorite .
Here are some of the features of the Conair You Reel 1875 Watt Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styler :

.    Dual voltage and folding handle for worldwide travel and easy storage
  • Powerful high torque motor for fast drying
  • Tourmaline Ceramic Technology – natural ionic output helps fight frizz and
  • bring out natural shine
  • Ionic Technology – smoothes the cuticle layer, creating silky, shiny hair
  • Ceramic Technology – less stress and heat damage on your hair
  • promotes healthy, shiny locks
  • 3 heat/2 speed settings with cool shot
  • Diffuser for added volume, no frizz
  • Concentrator for spot-on styling
  • Unit weight: 2.7 lbs.
  • Limited three-year warranty

  • I love the heat settings with the cool shot. Sometimes when I'm drying my hair, the heat gets to me after awhile, so these features are a plus for me. I absolutely loved using the diffuser too. It really gave my hair a good amount of volume, ad seemed to dry it much quicker. The Conair You Reel 1875 Watt Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styler can be purchased nationwide, and at mass market and drug store retailers, as well as at for an average price of $34.99.

    I also received the Conair Impressions Cushion Brush Model #87711 for review from Conair.  This has to be one of the best brushes I have owned ever. My hair has recently grown very long, and I have a very tough time combing it, and keeping it snarly free. This is not easy at all. I have tried several different brushes, with o.k. results, that was until I tried the Conair Impressions Cushion Brush. This brush is designed for everyday use for short to long hair, and is designed to detangle wet to dry hair. The flexible cushion base allows for stress free brushing,and the ball tipped bristles will not snag or pull your hair. It can be purchased nationwide at mass market and drug stores , and retails for an average of $7.99.This brush has really been a lifesaver to me and my long hair.

You must complete the MANDATORY entry first. Open to U.S. Only , and you must be 18 years of age to enter. Please include your email with entries, so I can contact you should you be my lucky winner.

    Enjoy The Rest Of Summer

    Are you enjoying your what is left of summer? Can you believe that summer is almost over. and the kids will be returning back to school? This is the time of year that I love, and get  bit sad when it's over.I love the fun of summer. Being outside, swimming, going to theme parks, and going on vacation is just so fun. Then of course the kiddies will be returning to school, or starting for the first time. The anticipation, the fear and anxiety us parents go though is just so fun. I hope all of you have had a great summer, and you have lots of fun memories , and things to talk about as summer nears an end. I didn't do too much this summer besides recover from surgery. I did take every chance I could to step outside when  I could. I saw a terrible hail storm this summer, something I had never seen before in my life. I will never forget it. I hope you all enjoy the rest of summer, and do alot of fun stuff. Enjoy yourself  & be happy.Thanks for stopping by!

Another happy place I like to go to is the ocean. The water, the smell of the ocean, and the atmosphere put me in a whole different mood. I kind of forget about reality for a moment or two.

    Ice T & Coco at MGM Poolside

    Do you know Ice T & Co Co? Ice is the former rapper , and appears on the show Law And Order SUV as a detective. Everybody knows Ice T right? Well, I went to see him today with a friend at an event at a local pool. It was almost 100 degrees, humid and very difficult to breathe, but I had to wait in the line if I wanted to see him and Coco.

    It was a bit tough to get close to them as there were hundreds and hundreds of people, and not much room to get by. They spoke over the microphone, and took many pics with fans in the swimming pool. They really seemed liked cool down to earth people, and were so friendly. I was shocked and amazed at amazed at Coco's hot body. She is in awesome shape. If you ever watched their reality show Ice Loves Coco on E!, then you would know that she is quite fit, but close up and personal is different. Here is a photo of her assets. See for yourself.

    She must keep up with her crunches each day that I all I can say. She has a gorgeous tan too. I couldn't get over her huge enormous boobs. Holy taledo Coco! That has got to hurt your back sista. All I know is that Ice T & Coco are so much in love. You can see this on the show, and it visibly is aware wherever they go. I think they just celebrated their ten or 11th wedding anniversary. They had it on T.V. . I hope the show comes back on for another season, as I just loved it. It was real, not bullshit stuff like the Kardashian's. Coco & Ice T are real down to earth good people. What you see is what you get from them. As Ice T says, "I can because I'm Ice Mother T ! Hell to the yeah Ice. I love you man.

    And one last photo for you to see of Ice T Himself at the pool party in his honor. I think he might have been praying or something. All I know is he is real. Check him out on Law And Order SUV, and see for yourself. Trust me, you will love him. He is on Twitter & FB too, so hit Ice up. Thanks for stopping by , and checking my blog out.Feel free to enter my giveaways while your here.
