Have you ever dreamed about being in your favorite movie? How about having a nightmare about being stuck in your least favorite type of movie? Well, in Disney’s Teen Beach Movie that is what happens…Brady LOVES beach movies and Mackenzie cannot stand them. They both magically get transported into a beach movie and have to learn how to survive while trying to figure out a way to get out and back to the modern day.

I saw the trailer for this movie about a month ago and it looked interesting and something that the entire family would agree to watch. Do not take my word for it….check out this preview for Disney’s Teen Beach Movie yourself.

Disclosure: Conair sent RedCarpetMamas a free Conair Lithium Ion 20 piece Haircut Kit to review; however, the thoughts and opinions contained herein are our own.

Let me start with describing what is included with the Conair Lithium Ion 20 Piece Haircut Kit:

  • 10 guide combs
  • Barber scissors and comb
  • Styling comb
  • Cleaning brush and oil
  • Barber cape
  • Styling clip
  • Blade cover and deluxe storage case

This clipper set is cordless <can you hear the angels singing> and it is supposed to be able to go for one-hour continuously without needing to be recharged.  I myself never needed to use it for an hour non-stop so I could not test that capability.  I loved that it was cordless so I did not aggravate my children by hitting them across the side of the face with the cord while trying to get their hair trimmed straight.  I also felt that the motor was more powerful then other models we have used in the past and it made the entire haircut go much smoother since it cut on the first pass.

My children liked that this clipper set cut their hair and did not get stuck in their thick hair and pull on it.

Overall we were very happy with the Conair Lithium Ion 20 Piece Haircut Kit.



woman within logoSwim Bras are now available….yes you read that right!  You can now buy a bra that goes under your swimsuit to give you added support.  It has convertible straps and can be adjusted in a wide variety of ways to give you added support in a swimsuit.  I know that most swimsuits do not come with adequate support so this is actually something that I am surprised I have not seen advertised yet.  I did see it advertised in my most recent Woman Within Catalog is what brought it to my attention.  Before the non-plus size readers click off this let me state that this is available in the following sizes 38-50 C-G.  It is my belief that there are some non-plus sized women that wear those sizes as well.  This swim bra gets 4 out of 5 stars with 31 reviews.  It is Item #: 0027-11590-1314 (easiest thing to do those is search swim bra)

The swim bra is on sale for $34.99 – $39.99 (depending on size and color).  However right now there is a Woman Within Discount code OSPOFFER393 which gives you 50% off.  If you order the $39.99 swim bra and pay shipping the total is $27.98.

So would you wear a swim bra?  Have you ever worn one?  What are your thoughts on this?


Rod Stewart is back again! I remember listening to him when I was in high school (do not do that math PLEASE) and I liked him then. He is back with his new CD in over 11 years…..yes that is eleven. (Remember I said do not do the math!) Rod Stewart’s new CD is called “Time: It features tracks such as the brass backed Finest Woman and the peppy Beautiful Morning. I will say that on She Makes Me Happy I think his vocals get lost in the music. The background music is a bit overpowering.

Overall, the CD was like a blast from the past. It is reminiscent of his music from the 80′s and 90′s and it does not seem to have changed.

Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of the CD so I could listen to it and review it. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

statement necklaces

Statement Necklaces are a cost efficient way to keep up with fashion trends without replacing your entire wardrobe.  As long as you keep some timeless classics in your wardrobe a few statement necklaces that can be worn with several outfits will have you looking red carpet ready at a fraction of the price!  Here are a few of the hottest styles I have found:

Fashion Show
My daughter and I were given the opportunity to try Suave’s Professionals Moroccan Infusion Moroccan Argan Styling Oil and House of Harlow 1960 Sunburst Stud Earrings with White Stingray Leather as a Princess Perk (this means Suave sent it to me in exchange for a review).  We took this as an excuse to have our own Mother/Daughter fashion show at home.  My daughter is 4 so her picture taking skills are not the best but we had fun playing dress up and trying to do our hair different than we normally do.

I sampled Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Moroccan Argan Styling Oil.  I have to say it has a very pleasant smell and the oil calmed my frizzy hair and made it very manageable.  My hair had a very nice shine to it and felt very soft.  I have to say I was concerned about putting an oil in my hair but was surprised by the way it worked and made my hair more manageable and soft and shine as if I was one of the models in Fashion Star.

The House of Harlow 1960 Sunburst Stud Earrings with White Stingray Leather were beautiful and they gave great detail to how they were put together.  The earrings themselves were rather heavy but once I put them in they were comfortable and I did not notice how heavy they were.  I usually only wear small stud’s so this was a change for me.

I have to say that the most impressive thing out of the two products was the Suave Moroccan infusion line.  I will be looking into it when I go to the store.  I would like to try the entire Suave Moroccan Infusion line because I loved how it made my hair look and I really loved the smell.

My desire to try the entire line must have been told to Suave by a fortune teller.  They actually emailed me and asked me if I would be willing to give away a complete set of the entire Suave Moroccan Infusion line to a lucky Red Carpet Mamas reader.  In exchange for hosting that contest they would send me a complete set also!  Win-Win!!  (See the Rafflecopter below for how to enter)

My daughter and I enjoyed watching Fashion Star and we were so happy that Hunter won.  We were watching and saying what we thought each other would look pretty in.  It was a nice night of mother/daughter fun and entertainment.  My daughter has asked each evening since if we can have another fashion show.

Disclosure:  I was given a bottle of the Suave Moroccan Infusion Moroccan Argan Oil and the House of Harlow earrings in exchange for writing this post.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I am additionally receiving the entire Moroccan Infusion line in exchange for hosting the giveaway.
