Review and Giveaway: Alberto VO5 Men’s 3-in-1

Alberto VO5 Men's 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner and body wash

I received the new Alberto VO5 Men’s 3-in-1 products for review and giveaway on my dad blog. As the name suggests, the new line is a three in one product that combines shampoo, conditioner and body wash in one bottle. I tried it, and I have to admit it’s a little strange to use a shampoo to wash my body. But after I got use to it, I think it’s a great idea for saving space. Why have three bottles in your shower, when you only need one?

Five Things About The Nut Job

The Nut Job

The kids and I watched The Nut Job over the weekend. The animated movie is about a squirrel who only thinks about himself. He accidentally blows up the winter’s food supply at a park, and is then exiled by the other animals. This is one of those movies that will appeal mainly with kids. For parents, I suggest sticking around for the end credits. There is a fun scene at the end that will entertain adults and children. The Nut Job (Universal Studios Home Entertainment) is available now in Digital HD. It will be available on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow (April 15th).

Six Things About Rio 2

Rio 2 (20th Century Fox)

The kids and I saw Rio 2 last weekend. We enjoyed the film, and I really like the tunes in the movie. They had a great beat. In this sequel, Blu and Jewel head into the jungle to look for other blue macaws. Jewell grew up in the forest, so she’s quite at home in the wild. Blu, on the other hand, grew up in a house so he’s like a city boy in the jungle. For instance, Blu insists on wearing a fanny pack and navigating via gps. Funny bird. Rio 2 (20th Century Fox) opens in theaters today. Continue reading to learn six things about Rio 2.
