The Gift of WWENetwork

It is that time of your. Thanksgiving is almost upon us and the busiest shopping season is not far behind. There is still a lot to do and probably many people on your list to get gifts for. I have heard a lot of people talking about Black Friday sales and getting in line early and things like that. That may be cool for some people, but I like to sleep, I hate crowds and I don't want to battle a thousand other people for a chance at one of 10 available items.

Not only that, but many times Black Friday Deals are not as great as they claim to be, and there is not even always things that I want, or think my recipients will like. I like to give gifts that are thoughtful and personal. I want something that will actually be used and enjoyed, nit just sit in a closet or *gasp* be returned.

When you are shopping for someone who already has almost everything it is especially hard to find things they will actually use. That is why I like consumable items (food) and experiences(concert tickets, sports tickets, movie passes, etc). Now I have one more item to add to my "great gift" list. The gift of WWENetwork.

I am one of the biggest WWE fans on the planet probably, so I have always known a gift from WWE is perfect for any fan. And I have subscribed to WWENetwork since the very fist day it launched. I just enjoyed watching Surviver Series on WWENetwork just this past Sunday, a PPV that would cost $55 if purchased through my TV service.

Since WWENetwork is only $9.99 for the whole month(which includes the PPV each month), it is a steal. It's better than Black Friday by far. My WWENetwork subscription is something that I use every day with around 4000 hours of original content, and more being added all the time, there is always something new to enjoy.

I have wanted to gift WWENetwork to many people, but I don't want my card being charged every month for someone else. I am so thrilled that now I can gift a WWENetwork subscription with a gift card that can be purchased at Walmart, a store I always shop at anyway. I can even use cash on to buy the gift card if I want, which is awesome. I just pay once now and the recipient can add the card to their own account. It is prepaid so they won't be charged when it runs out unless they decide to continue their subscription.

The card is $30 for 3 months of WWENetwork. I can choose to gift just 3 months to people who I may not be as close to and I can buy more cards to give 6, 9, even 12 months if I want to. Best of all, if I start off with only 3 or 6 months, I can always give another card for a different occasion(like a birthday) later on. It is a gift that you can give over and over.

As a fan, I can tell you that although I already have a subscription, I would be thrilled to get this as a gift. If i didn't already have one, it would probably be the best gift ever. For a WWE fan, there is nothing like every PPV on top of unlimited access to thousands of hours of WWE programming.

With WWENetwork you can relive the Attitude Era and every old PPV there has ever been. You can watch the journey of new starts from the very beginning with shows like Breaking Ground. You get tons of exclusive interviews, podcasts and videos and even reality shows like Legend's House and Total Divas. There is something for every fan.

If you want to get a gift they are sure to love, something that won't sit around and collect dust, something they can use every day and never get the same content twice, the WWENetwork gift card is the perfect gift. Best of all, you won't have to search for a sale, because it is always a fantastic price. Of course they joy that comes from WWE programming is priceless.

Have a hardcore holiday *Bang! Bang!*

Hairstyles for Men: How to Style Your Hair

As a man, how often do you accompany your wife or girlfriend to the salon to have your hair styled? Or do you think that hair grooming and styling is only meant for women? Certainly not! If you are bored with the same old hair texture, look and style, check out our tips below:

Use Quality Products

Now that you are aware that hair grooming and styling is just as important for men as it is for women, it is high time to get rid of those cheap products that you have been using. In fact, they may be the reason behind that old look that has been making your hair appear too dry or too oily. Think a while about your cosmetics and choose the ones that will work best for you. You can try out a variety of products. Shop at Sears to get a great deal and remember to use Discountrue coupons on your purchase to save even more.

The following is a list of some high-quality hair products and the kind of effect that they will help you to achieve if you start using them today:

1) Serums/Creams: While these products help in taming fly-aways and de-frizz curls, they also prevent your hair from becoming stiff and immovable.

2) Mousse: It adds shine and volume to your hair with minimal hold, and should be applied to dump hair before the hair is allowed to dry.

3) Gel: If applied on wet hair, it contains alcohol that functions to dry out your hair and make for a much stronger hold.

4) Pomade/Hair Wax/Hair Clay: These products are used to mold hair into hard-to-achieve shapes like curls and pompadours. While pomade and hair wax are best for a shiny and wet look, hair clay works best to produce a matte and natural tone on your hair.

5) Hair Glue: This product is used to provide hair with the strongest possible holds for styles like Mohawks. Due to the risk of product build-up, thoroughly wash your hair between applications.

Take into Account Your Styling Needs & Situations

Why do you want to style your hair? Are you doing it for the upcoming prom, meeting your fiancée's parents for the first time, or you just want to have a new classy look? Whatever your reason is, make your new hair style match your situation. For a formal event like a wedding or a job interview wear something more traditional or that is closer to your everyday style. For instance, your niece (or fiancée for that matter) may not be very comfortable with you wearing a high Mohawk to her upcoming wedding. My husband had a Mohawk right before we got married and he cut it off for the wedding.

Try New Hairstyles More Often

Though there are no strict rules about hairstyles, you need to consider some factors before choosing yours. For instance, you need to figure out what your hair type is, so you choose the ones that suit you. Knowing your facial shape will also help you make the best decisions that will complement your look. Be sure to find a solution that makes you feel most comfortable. Try out a variety of hairstyles every few weeks or so until you get one that you really love!

Choose Your Sideburn Length

Most hair stylists will recommend an average length of classic sideburns to be at the middle point of your ear. However, you can adjust this length according to your head shape and facial characteristics. Choose a sideburn length that matches your hairstyle. For instance, if your hair is short, you should keep them short and well-trimmed. While short sideburns are best with longer faces, long ones make shorter faces appear more elongated.

Starlooks Utopia Looksbook Review

You all know how much I love Starlooks and my Looksbook subscription. It is like a gift in my mailbox every month. It is so much fun to get a surprise, especially when it is high quality cosmetics. I am so excited to show off my newest box, the Utopia edition. It is fabulous, as always.

This box is really exciting. I love the Utopia concept and the color palette is really great. They are earthy tones, but with some fun color. This is a little different than what I normally wear, but the colors fit my personality very well.

I really love how well the colors coordinate with each other. I am not the most daring with my looks, I much prefer when the colors are cohesive and look very matched rather than having a super bold aspect that stands out from the look.

This has just the right products to create an entire look alone or with minimal added products. It contains an cream eyeliner, cream blush stick and a lip gloss. Great for a simple yet polished look, even on the go and in a hurry. The awesome custom box makes it perfect for travel.

The "Abstract" Cream Blush Stick is great. It is so good for travel and much neater to apply on the go than pressed blushes and especially loose pigments. It goes on so smooth and does not feel thick or sticky like some cream products do.

This has a perfect powder finish. I love that this has some rich color to it. It is not too dark, and not too bright. I don't like the excessively red, pink or orange looking blushes. This looks more natural, especially with these products.

The "Concrete" Cream Eyeliner/Eye Base is fantastic. I love that is is light and neutral, but it really helps my eyes to look open and bright. I have very small eyes, so anything that helps them look larger or helps them pop is wonderful. The cream liner is so easy to apply, even for me. It glides on like silk it is so smooth and feels amazing all day. I am so in love with this formula.

To finish the look, the "Ideal" Lip Gloss is perfection. I was worried the color would be too dark or too reddish for me, as I usually opt for more nude or light pink tones, or sheer plums, but I immediately fell in love with this shade. It even made my lips look fuller, which was not my objective, but a really nice perk.

The color is so great, it is dark enough to make a statement, but it looks seamless and simple. The shine is stunning. I love having the wet effect without it looking too thick and without having to have shimmer. It is a very nice addition to my collection, I had nothing like this until now, and my lip gloss collection is very full.

As with all Starlooks lip glosses, it is so smooth, it stays creamy and keeps my lips moisturized all day long. The color stays true for hours without me having to reapply. My lips even feel soft after I take it off. This lip gloss is a true essential.

Of course the products are only as good as the looks they create. That is often my problem, as I am far from a pro at application. In fact my skills are strictly beginner. With that taken into account, I think the products look great on me. I wish I could do more with them, especially after seeing the gorgeous looks on the tips booklet in my Looksbook.

While my makeup will never look that good, I have to work with what I have, and I am pleased with how the look turned out. All I added was a touch of mascara. I probably should have used foundation too, but it is what it is.

With the holidays right around the corner, there will be so many gatherings to attend and so many gifts to buy. LooksBook by Starlooks would not only make a fabulous gift for any lady in your life, but it would be a great way to have a perfectly designed look all ready to grab and go in a custom designed box. What are you waiting for, the deadline for the AMAZING(I got a sneak peek) November box has been extended to Nov 25th. Subscribe now to get the exclusive collection.

*Although I received this Looksbook to facilitate a review, all opinions are 100% my own.*

Live Well with Amwell - Get a Free Visit

 *This is a sponsored post with Mums the Word Network and Amwell. All opinions are my own.*

Life today is so busy. We are always on the go and more and more things are being done online. We shop online, order food online, we talk to our friends and family with technology. Our dictionaries, calculators, alarm clocks, cameras and so much more is all on our phones. It makes life so simple. 

You shouldn't have to stop what you are doing and make an appointment, and wait just to get information, that could easily be provided with technology. If you need medical advice without needed immediate medical treatment, why should you have to sit in a waiting room or go to a clinic or hospital just to get told what you should do?

Not only is that a waste of your time, it is a waste of other people's time. If there are people who really need treatment(like for a broken bone or a cut or something hands on), they have to wait behind people just needing information; that is bad for everyone.

With Amwell, you can get medical advice from anywhere, via your computer or smartphone. If you are on vacation and get a massive sunburn, you can find out the best way to treat it, without looking for a doctor in a new place or interrupting your trip. If you sprain your ankle at home, you can find out how to treat it without having to drive(with a hurt ankle) to a doctor. How many first time parents wonder "is this normal?" Now you can ask quickly and easily from anywhere.

It is not just advice either, Amwell doctors are real doctors. They can write you prescriptions if needed. They get sent to your local pharmacy for you to pick up. Now if you have a rash and need cream, you can get it without waiting at a doctor. If you have an infection and need an antibiotic, no waiting hours to be seen or days for an appointment.

Amwell is so much more than a medical solution. Amwell also offers Diet & Nutrition consultations. No need to find a nutritionists office and wait for an appointment and try to fit it into your schedule. Now you can ask all the questions you have, get all the answers you need and still do everything your busy life entails.

As great as the medical and diet & nutrition aspects are, I am even more thrilled to have the option to see a psychologist from the comfort of my home. We all get overwhelmed sometimes, and usually we don't want anyone to know when it gets to a breaking point. Sometimes we just need someone to talk to, a way to let our emotions out and some real advice and insight from an expert. 

I don't drive. My husband (who drives me) works a lot and even when he is home, it is very hard for me to do anything without my kids. I've wanted to visit a psychologist before, but had never been able to. Now I can do it on my laptop while the kids are at school and my husband is working. I can let out my insecurities and doubts and my stresses and things that upset me. I can do something to take care of myself and make me a better wife and mother.

I just did my first session with Amwell Psychology a few days ago, and it was amazing. I felt so much weight lifted of my chest. I literally felt physically lighter. Stress may be mental and emotional, but it can cause real physical symptoms. If Psychology is something you have ever wanted to try, but you were afraid of what someone would think or were too busy to do a regular appointment, there is no excuse not to try it now.

It really is so therapeutic. I have struggled with depression since i was a teenager. While I am able to handle things so much better now, there is a difference between handling and healing. Being able to carry all your problems may make you feel like everything is fine, but learning how to set them down takes a huge weight off your shoulders.

Amwell can help you to be well. You can learn about nutrition be healthy, you can treat your ailments with advice from a doctor and you can be much happier when you work with a psychologist to talk through your problems, vent your feelings and even find solutions.

Best of all, right now, you can do it for FREE. Use code CARENOW15 to get you visit completely free. Use it on any of Amwell's services. Unless you happen to have a medical situation come up, I would recommend the psychology. It really is wonderful. No more excuses. Take care of yourself and let Amwell take good care of you.
