Change Your Hair Color And Length At A Fraction Of The Price

** This is a sponsored post and I did receive money for this post. However, all opinions are my own. I will only post sponsored posts for products, people, brands, companies, who I find trustworthy and or use myself. ** 

There are several reasons why you may be interested with Divatress. One of the first reasons will probably be the variety and unique styles they offer for virtually everybody! You are sure to fall in love with one or a few or more! Wigs have certainly come a long way and in a very good way.)

Most likely after seeing the selection of wigs, hair extensions, and hair pieces, you'll notice the prices. I have always expected that wigs would cost a fortune. But, after checking out almost every page on their website, if I were to purchase one for every day of the week, I would still be under $200! I wasn't expecting this and I definitely wasn't expecting to find every shade of the rainbow either! 

I love bright, bold, fun colors. I've always been a sucker for the brightest blues, pinks, purples, even orange hair colors. I have med to dark brown hair so, you can imagine what some of those shades fade into. Not to mention the fact that it is insanely hard to get my brown hair to take the color as bright as I would like it too. I have now found blues and purples in shades I could never buy in a box or get at the salon for my hair! (I'm seriously contemplating grabbing a few in the shorter hair styles for myself.) 

These prices are very hard to beat. Especially when you consider the possibilities! Halloween costumes, girls night out, going out with your significant other, concerts, just wanting to change your look for a day. This would be much healthier than coloring and bleaching your hair to achieve the same results. (Well, I know for me and my hair, these colors would be even more fun!) It is very hard to find hair color that stays in and doesn't fade a few days later. 

If you need a human hair weave, they have those too! You can also find braids, ponytails, (Even more fun for short hair like me!) You can also find a broad selection of beauty products and a nail color to match your new wig! 

The Allergy Season That Never Ends

Living With Allergic Kids

Our house turns into a tissue farm every March. I know this sounds crazy but, they seriously grow here. They grow right out from in between sofa cushions and sometimes, they multiply right in their own boxes! (We seem to also have quite the throat drop harvest every spring as well!)

Springtime allergies in Pennsylvania are usually the worst at our house. Our youngest is pretty much over his as soon as summer starts. Our 10-year-old goes a little through summer and our 13-year-old is still suffering in the fall. It tends to also start back up in the fall weather for everybody in the house. This is when I am feeling icky too.

Emergency Allergy Kits

I try to stock everything we need for different types of things, in the form of kits or in a section of the house where it's accessible by everyone. Back to school supplies are kept behind a door in the kitchen. First Aid kits are available above the fridge, allergy kits are kept in the truck, behind the door with the back to school supplies, and they are in the medicine cabinet. (Of course, allergy meds are kept in the medicine cabinet only and out of our children's reach.)

We have little travel packs of antibacterial wipes, tissues, throat drops, cleaning wipes, (for faces and hands), and some sort of mint flavored sugar-free gum. (Our kids included this so, we just kept stocking this as well!) We also have Band-Aid bandages and "mom business cards" that are included in each pack. This way, the kit will cover first aid as well as personal and contact info all in one little bundle. These are great to hand to teachers at the beginning of the school year as well!

Allergy Medications For Kids

It is always best to consult with your pediatrician regarding medicines and vitamins of any kind. Our doctor's office has an online account for their patients which is wonderful! It helps a great deal when I need to contact our doctor, ask a question, address concerns that don't necessarily require a visit, and keep him updated on what is happening with everyone and what medications we are using. Before our online portal, we relied on calling and I started a medical diary to keep track of everything for everyone in the house. (I keep a pain diary for RSD and a few other medical issues. So, I thought this was a great idea for everybody else.) 

Our 13-year-old is not too keen on swallowing pills so, he is still taking children's medicine for the most part. (Depending on the type of medicine he needs.) We have been trying to change this but, he isn't budging. (Side note * I spoke with our pharmacist about this recently and she mentioned that she helped her pre teen daughters out by giving them straw to suck plain M&M's up. After a few tries, it worked for them. So, we are planning this for our son too. 

For now, we use a lot of homeopathic medications for different illnesses and whether you are using children's or adult's medication, there are plenty of options for people who don't like to swallow pills. Pills that dissolve, pills you can chew, and those neat envelopes of powder to mix with water. All of our children have specific flavor preferences. That can get annoying when trying to find vitamins that everybody loves or allergy medicine. So, they take turns deciding flavors so I don't have to buy several different packages! We use a few different name brands for allergy medication and they are all chewable which is super nice!! The only thing that sometimes causes more chaos than the actual allergies themselves, is buying the proper medicine that all of the kids can agree on.
