Witches, Zombies & HEXBUG Nano!


HEXBUG Nano is the robotic creature that behaves like a real bug, and last weekend we had the opportunity to review their Halloween Edition. This creatures were the hit of our Halloween Party!


This micro robotic creature can go across a room in a matter of seconds and the coolest thing is that their Halloween Edition glows in the dark! They also have their own habitat and it is so amazing how well they maneuver, twist and turn to find it's way around.

We played lots of games and the kids seemed to be having fun... But once this tiny creatures started to crawl around our party the kids went crazy! They spent hours following the creatures around the house and many kids were amused as they did not know what a HEXBUG was. The best part is that thanks to HEXBUG and MommyParties I was able to provide the kids with a HEXBUG of their own to keep.

HEXBUGS will make a great birthday or even better a Christmas gift. They are very entertaining and the kids spend hours following/playing with this tiny creatures.

Bellies & Babies Pregnancy Spa and Ultrasound Center Review

Bellies & Babies is a pregnancy spa designed to cater to mothers-to-be, and dads-to-be also! Bellies & Babies caters to the unique needs of every pregnant women, offering a variety of services like therapeutic massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, belly imprinting, waxing, gender determination ultrasounds, 3D/4D ultrasounds, and much more. For a complete list of all their services please please their website here.

 Bellies & Babies was designed by Kim Stanley, a wife and mother of three. Kim and her husband came up with the wonderful idea of this pregnancy spa when she was pregnant with twins. Kim says, "Everybody always focuses on babies, baby showers, this and that and we just thought we could do something for the pregnant mom or thereafter."



Kim's idea of luxurious essential care before and after baby is just what every mommy-to-be needs! Bellies & Babies only uses 100% natural products, you do not have to worry about harsh chemicals endangering the life of your fetus. The staff is very attentive and courteous, they make sure you are comfortable at all times. Expect to be greeted with a smile and leave with an even a bigger smile after you receive their wonderful services. 

I had the privilege to spend a complimentary morning at Bellies & Babies and this are the services I received: 
  • 50 minutes Perfect Pregnancy Massage: Our Texas Department of State Health Services certified massage therapists have gone through intensive prenatal training and can provide a safe full body massage through ALL stages of pregnancy. They'll also help you choose the 100% natural massage oil best for your symptoms.
  • 50 minutes Get That Glow Facial: This intensive facial nourishes and replenishes, resulting in healthy looking skin. Enjoy a massage of the face, neck and shoulders, followed by steam to open the pores, extractions, and exfoliation, concluded by a treatment mask and moisturizer chosen specifically for your skin's special needs. And, of course, you'll get a relieving foot massage too!
  • Bellies & Babies Signature Hot Stone Pedicure: Sit back and relax in our comfy chairs while you will experience a luxurious pedicure that begins with a therapeutic foot soak and gentle exfoliation with your choice of aromatherapy. Once your feet have been groomed and smoothed, we'll apply a calming Arnica gel to help reduce swelling. You'll then be treated to a relaxing hot stone foot and leg massage followed by an application of our Peppermint Tea Tree Foot balm to reduce achiness and leave your feet softer than they've been in ages! Select your favorite pregnancy-safe Zoya nail polish shade for the finishing touch. 

  • Aromatherapy Spa Manicure: Experience a luxurious aromatherapy manicure that exfoliates, nourishes, relaxes and beautifies hands and arms. Select your favorite pregnancy-safe Zoya nail polish shade for the finishing touch.

My thoughts: 
My first service was the Perfect Pregnancy Massage, the licensed massage therapist made sure I was comfortably positioned and before she started working her magic she asked me what my problem areas were. For me it has to be my lower back and heels, she worked as much as she could on those areas making sure baby boy and I were comfortable and safe at all times. By the end of my perfect massage my aches and pains had vanished!

My second service and my favorite part out of my morning was the Get That Glow Facial! I can't tell you much about this service because the esthetician's hands were so soft that soon after she started working on my face I fell asleep! I think I even scared myself because I was so comfortable and deep in my sleep that I snored! Embarrassing!! I'm only sharing this to show you how great their services are, I was so relaxed and felt so pampered I took a siesta. :) All I know is that after my facial my sking looked so rejuvenated and I had "That Glow." 

Last but not least a mani/pedi. A girl's best friend, specially if you're pregnant and like me cannot reach your toes. At Bellies & Babies you don't get that harsh, toxic odor you will get at an ordinary nail salon. Instead you get an aromatheraphy of lavender from their 100% natural products. Sarah the nail technician is well trained in various techniques, to make sure your hands and feet get the rest and pampering they desperately need.

From the soothing music and classy decor, to the friendly staff and wonderful services, Bellies & Babies is the perfect day Spa for any mommy-to-be. I recommend Bellies & Babies to all my friends, family and readers. I myself will be back, next on my list are the Belly Imprinting and 3D Ultrasound.

Located at: 479 Bay Area Boulevard, Houston, TX 77058 with convenient hours, please visit their website for a complete list of services, hours of operation, special offers and much more. http://www.belliesandbabiesspa.com/

Reel Steel Giveaway

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Footloose Giveaway

Writer/Director Craig Brewer ("Hustle & Flow," "Black Snake Moan") delivers a new take of the beloved 1984 classic film, "Footloose." Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont's local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister's troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.


Footloose movie trailer courtesy of Paramount Pictures.

Just like Ren our generation faces many challenges, we also have to take a stand for what we love and believe. One of those challenges is bullying. 
We have seen many innocent kids/teenagers lose their lives because of bullying, so lets take a stand for what we believe just like Ren! 
 
If you love dancing as much as he does you don't want to miss this film! Footloose hits theaters in the US October 14, 2011. 
In the meanwhile I have a giveaway for you guys!
Giveaway: One lucky ready will have the change to win a Footloose Fan package, that includes buttons, sunglasses, posters, magazine, t-shirt, tie and a tote!
