Happy New Year! Welcome 2016!

A very happy, peaceful, and safe New Year to you all!

May the days of 2016 be Blessed.

To all of my Scottish Friends and relatives, have a Happy Hogmanay and Bliadhna mhath ùr!

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And ne'er brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
We'll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run aboot the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit'
Sin auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And here's a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o' thine,
We'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.

And it came to pass in those days,
that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus
that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth,
into Judaea, unto the city of David,
which is called Bethlehem;
(because he was of the house and lineage of David)
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there,
the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them,
and the glory of the Lord shone round about them
and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them,
"Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger. "

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

#HairGrowthShampoo Hair Growth Botanical Renovation Shampoo

I was recently given the opportunity to review Hair Growth Botanical Renovation Shampoo from Green Touch Beauty.

This is a sulfate-free product that promises to stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth.

I've used the product for three weeks and , unfortunately,  I have noticed no difference in my hair's appearance or in growth.  That does not mean the product won't work for others. Perhaps if I had a bit longer to use the product before the review was due, it might be a different result.

I received a bottle of the Lemongrass and Rosemary shampoo.  The shampoo's fragrance is very astringent and medicinal -- a bit unpleasant.  However, as the hair dries the medicinal smell does fade.

Once applied (it doesn't require much), the shampoo's ingredients produce a slight tingling sensation -- not unpleasant at all. Rinses clean and leaves no residue.


*WHAT IT DOES: Reduces hair loss by promoting additional blood circulation around hair follicles, and restores lost proteins that increase hair follicle strength. Improves scalp and hair health by encouraging hair follicles to remain in their growth phase. Contains powerful BOTANICAL active ingredients which have been shown to reduce hair loss, stimulate hair growth and return dormant hair follicles back to function. Proper use of this shampoo alone can help to reduce the rate of hair loss and maintain the density of thinning hair. Try other products from our HAIR GROWTH line: anti-hair loss SCALP TREATMENTS and deep reconstructive CONDITIONERS.

*DOES IT HELP WITH DHT? - Yes, HAIR GROWTH Botanical Renovation product line helps to reduce hair-loss caused by DHT. Unique formula penetrates the scalp with natural oil nourishment and includes the strongest known botanical hair-loss fighting bioactive components combined with premium botanical active ingredients which have been shown to reduce hair loss, stimulate hair growth and return dormant hair follicles back to function. Treatment improves scalp and hair health by encouraging hair follicles to remain in their growth phase, but it is not meant to be a comprehensive cure or an alternative therapy to treat levels of androgens or testosterone and dihydrotestosterone.

*HOW MUCH TO APPLY: Comb residual styling products out of your hair. Dampen your hair well with lukewarm water. Use a quarter-size amount of shampoo [for short to medium long hair] and distribute the product over the scalp with circulating movements and through your hair. Foam up the dollop of shampoo with a little water before massaging the foaming shampoo through your hair and scalp. Be sure not to scratch your scalp with your fingernails. Leave on for 1-2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and repeat again. Completely rinse the shampoo out of your hair using clear water. Follow up with conditioner and style your hair as usual. For best results apply 2-3 times a week. 

*PLEASE NOTE: We use only high quality and high potency ingredients sourced from the most reliable resources. Some of the ingredients like Essential Oils and Botanical Extracts are added to provide sensation of icy-hot warmth to intensify the effect of the treatment. These ingredients, when used as directed, will produce "tingling" sensation, which is expected. This sensation will increase with the increased amount of product. That's why it is important to follow directions thoroughly to prevent skin irritation. One 10.2 oz bottle of shampoo should last for about 15-20 weeks [for short to medium long hair].

If you are suffering hair loss, this product may be worth a try.  Be sure to use the product for the recommended time for full effect.

Pine Bros Softish Throat Relief #Giveaway! Ends 12/28/15

I have been a BIG fan of  Pine Brothers Softish Throat Relief lozenges since back in 2014 when I wrote my first Review for them!

Pine Brothers offers several flavour varieties of their amazing soft throat lozenges: Lemon Citrus,  Wild Cherry (my absolute favourite),  Licorice, and Mike's favourite, Natural Honey.

These lozenges are a true blessing for me.  I take several medications at night that give me dry mouth.  I keep the Wild Cherry lozenges in a bowl by my side of the bed. Before I go to bed, I allow take one to dissolve and moisten my mouth.  If I wake in the middle of the night, I do the same.  It really helps.

Mike keeps bags of the lozenges in his work truck for his crew.  They get into dust quite a bit and the lozenges soothe their throats.  Of course, the lozenges are perfect for sore and itchy throats.

These wonderful, soft lozenges are natural flavours, a touch of sugar, and water, and carnauba wax.  They are not medicated, so no risk of medicinal interactions.  They dissolve fully over time which allows for lengthy coating and ultimate soothing of the throat.

The flavour is wonderful: no harsh chemicals means no bitter, medicinal taste.  For snoring, sore throat, itching, dry mouth...  Pine Brothers Softish Throat Relief lozenges are the perfect remedy!

You can connect with Pine Brothers on their website and social media pages: FacebookPinterest, and
@pinebros1870 on twitter.

The great folks at Pine Brothers have generously offered a prize pack similar to the one I received! How cool is that?

Just follow the entry instructions below for your chance to enter to win!

Open to USA only, 18+, no PO Boxes. All entries are verified. Giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday December 28, 2015. ONE WINNER.

I received Pine Bros products in order to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed herein are my own and based on my own use of and experience with the items.
