Dream Fishing Kit

Dream Fishing Kit

I love fishing and where I live in the valley, it's not just a Summer season thing. We can basically go all year long if we wanted too... That's really getting your fishing license value! 

But there is something about fishing that's not that cute and it's the equipment.
 Everything, in every fishing section, of every store is highly dedicated to men and men's style and me being a girl I just can't have that. 
If your a girl who loves fishing or really want to get into it, I bet you can relate. Where the heck is the cute pink stuff!?

That being said, I found everything that would make a dream fishing kit for us girls. So I hope this helps you out, finding the best looking things for your fishing experience.

2. Pinnacle Eye Candy 2-Piece Poll
3. Hang Ten Classic Body Sunscreen

Cortney's Fitness Letter #6

Untitled

Hey fellow Shy Children!
 I can't believe it's already time for another fitness letter! It's probably because I am posting a week earlier than planned, due to the fact of me introducing some great news, that's going to be featured here on FashionShyChild starting next week.
If your super excited to know what it is, I am going to share it with you now. 
Since starting to introduce to you my change in wanting to get healthy/fit and live more of a healthy lifestyle I was doing that but always feeling a bit lost, like I wasn't giving it my true 100% to you all and myself. I never new where I was number weight wise, I just had an idea from the last time it was checked and everyone knows when trying to loose weight or even maintain your weight you need to know where you stand.

So starting next week, I am going to share everything with you in a weekly weigh in post. I have a scale now and I feel that it is time to get truly serious. I do have to be real and state that I am nervous to do this, but on the other side I don't want any of you to feel like you have know body because we can do this together, know matter how much we need to loose. 

I have joined MyFitnessPal, so if you would like to be my pal on that app you can add me.. My name on there is HelloCortney. I'm still really new to the app but everything seems to get added on there with updates too. So I guess that is it and I will see you next post.

Fellow Shy Child, 
Cortney P.

PS: Rember you are beautiful and your weight didn't define the nice person you truly are ❤️

All About My UUHairExtensions


I got this product for free in exchange for a review, but like always all opinions are 100 % my own. 

uuhairextensions.com


Hey fellow Shy Children!
You might have noticed that my hair has been looking different over the past couple of weeks. 
Well I'm here to tell you I have been testing out a new set of hair extensions from UUHairExtensions.com . I'm not a brand new person to hair extensions but I am fairly new since I have only tested out/ used one other pair before these. With that being said this review will include Shipping, Packaging, Product Review with Pro & Cons and My Final Thoughts. So let's get started!



Shipping: Shipping was very fast especially coming all the way from China. My package did have to go through customs before being set to me but there was no problems at all. They did ship the package through USPS if you were wondering.
Packaging: When receiving the package everything was in great condition, meaning no damages to the actual envelope or product itself. I was a little shocked to see it arrive in an envelope because I was kinda expecting a box but whatever works.
Product Review: The hair is very nice quality especially for it being only 100g of hair. I did get the 16in straight 1b. It came from China like I said in the Shipping section and there is no weird smell, so that's great. ( if your use to buying hair sometimes the packaging or hair it self can smell funny) The pack I got came with seven piece so I received 2 three clips, 1 four clips, 2 two clips and  2 one clips. All of the clips on the hair extensions are super sturdy and securely placed on the wefts. If a clip was to come off over time or you need to replace it for any reason, they do provide you with three extra clips. I do wish the set could have came with one more 3 clip to give the set just a little more hair. When it comes to placing the clips in, you will get a very secure fit. So don't be worried about them falling out, getting loose or even getting tugged on by a kid because they will stay in place. If you do thin hair I would suggest back combing your hair before putting in the clip, this way your hair has some texture to secure the clip. For washing I haven't done that yet because your hair extensions don't need to be washed often and since they didn't have a stinky smell I just didn't feel the need too. But if you would like too, I would highly suggest using a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner of a high quality. Also to keep them fresh looking and healthy add a bit of leave in conditioner or serum to the hair when dry. If you are a person who likes to add heat to your extensions I really suggest you keep it to a minimum or not at all. But if you do remember to add a heat protection before doing so. I personally like to braid my hair extensions while they are in or even at night when putting them away. That way you still get the curls you want, without the heat and damaged. When I did try to curl mine with a straightener I did notice the hair was smelt kinda burnt, so I don't know if they put a protection over the hair in the factory or what. Other than that I store my hair the same way it came packaged to keep them away from anything that could hurt or damaged them.
Pros- great quality for the price, nice packaging, fast shipping, no smell, nice customer service 
Cons- needs one more 3 clip weft
 
My Final Thoughts: I love these hair extensions and have already been suggesting them to friends and family and now you. You can't beat the price of these to the high quality you will receive. I really suggest you give these hair extensions a try before going anywhere else.

Cort Chanrio

Last night laying in bed and searching the web and all of my social media sites I came across the cutest post from Pink_Paperplane on Instagram. If you have know clue who she is, she runs her own etsy shop and make the most cutest stickers for your planners. If your interested in checking it out here is a link to her shop.
 But anyways, she posted a picture of herself as a Sanrio character and I completely freaked out! You all know by now how much love I have for Sanrio and all of their character and Iv been that way since I was a little kid. So since I never grew up I had to check out the site and of course make my own. Since I completely have no self control, I made a lot... Like a lot a lot! But I narrowed it down to my four favorite to share with you and you can not say this Sanrio character doesn't look like me!
If you would like to make your own Sanrio Character make sure to check out  Chanrio Maker at Chanrio.com . I do have to say though some things are not in English but it's still super easy to navigate yourself around the site.
PS: If you do make a character make sure to share it with me because I would love to see how yours came out... Luv ya!

New SlimQuick Pure Designed for Us Women


Compensation was provided by SlimQuick via BrandBacker for this post, but as always all opinions are mine and mine alone.

SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix 1

Since the beginning of this year I made it a goal of mine to get into a healthy lifestyle and potentially loose weight. I even made a promise to you all that I would share my journey and anything in between. 
So today I am sharing with you a product I have been using for a week now and absolutely loving. It's the New SlimQuick Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix in Mixed Berry. If you have no clue what it does I will give you a little walk through description.
This new SlimQuick Pure mix is specifically designed for us women to help us loose 3x more weight by targeting the six key factor that make it hard for us to loose weight. This product does that by Increasing Metabolism, Reducing Appetite, Boosting Energy, Reducing Excess Water, Supporting Hormones and Reducing Stress all while having natural ingredients.
By now your probably wondering how I have been using it and does it actually taste good. Well if your like me any powder weight loss drink mix is something you have tried before your doing to be highly shocked with how great this mix taste. I can really only compare it to fruit punch and Kool-Aid with an end result of feeling really full.  I use the product by starting with 16.9 fl oz of cold purified water, take a packet of the SlimQuick mix, pour it in and shake it up. It's really that easy and that convenient. On the side of the actual box it will give you simple step by directions on how many packets to drink depending on what day you are on. I will say most importantly on your first day make sure you are going to be home because the bathroom is going to be your new best friend for a couple of hours, due to the fact of the product working and cleaning out any excess water and waste. But other than that your good to go and have fun. Know more restricting yourself to plain old water, you can now be a part of the party/crowd with a drink mix designed with a purpose.
If your interested in giving SlimQuick Pure  drink mix a go you can find the product at this locations: Walmart and Walmart.com, Amazon.com, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Ride Aid, Publix, Kroger, Supervalu and Ahold. 
For my readers you all get a $5 savings! http://www.myslimquick.com/5-off-july-blog/

This weekend is going to be kinda chill. I have some work to get done before their deadlines and if you know me by now, some things can be procrastinated... But I will get them done.
I really want to see the Miniom movie that came out last week. I'm obsessed with those little yellow guys and very surprised I didn't see it on its debut day. 

PS: What are your plans for this weekend?

Full Time Energy Super Weight Loss Blend Review


Full Time Energy Super Weight Loss Blend
Hey fellow Shy Children!
If you read/follow my health post, you would have read that I was testing out a new energy product for my workouts. Well the day has came where I tell you my thoughts and opinions in a review. But first I do have to state a little FTC that I did receive this product for free for testing and review purposes. So lets get into the review.
Packaging: The packaging on this product is simple but it gets right to the point. All of the writing is in huge letters making it easy to read the title, instructions and the supplement facts/ ingredients.

Product Review: This has to be one of the easiest energy/ weight loss products I have ever taken. That being said the way I use this product is in the morning, a little after I wake up I will go to the fridge take out this bottle, shake it up and use the cap it comes with to measure out the right amount of liquid I need and drink it. Right off the bat you don't feel weird or disgusted. The blend taste like juice and I  really like that factor because a lot of the time when you take product like this they can have a chemical taste to them or even be a bit chalky and with this blend you don't get any of that. I do have to tell you that when I did swallow the blend it felt like the fluid was sticking to my insides. I don't know if that's what it suppose to do to melt away the fat or its because I don't eat before taking it. But that being said its nothing to worry about. 
The energy kicks in quite fast, so you can take it at the gym, right before your workout and don't have to play that waiting game for energy. I do take mine only up to two times a day meaning morning and late evening. I did test taking it at night for a night workout but after my workout I still had energy during bed time. Even though this does give you a good amount of energy it's not something that has a crash effect and makes you feel tired. I have noticed weight loss and a positive change in my everyday mood. 

Pros: taste great, easy to take, energy, no hard crash, can easily read ingredients, big bottle for the price
Cons: having to keep it in the fridge

My Final Thoughts: I would recommend this product for help with energy in your regular day life. So if you need it to workout, get thought a job that you have to stand for long periods of time or even to just have more energy to play with your kids. It's way better than buying those energy shot drinks and in the long run your getting more product for your buck.
If you would like to purchase Full Time Energy Super Weight Loss Blend you can do so HERE!
*This product was sent to me for free for testing and review purpose ONLY! All opinions and experiences are my own and 100% Honesty is key!

I've been living in light fitting shirts/tanks, shorts and sandals for the longest time now. For some people that might sound like a dream come true, kinda like beach life but I'm a jean and tee kinda girl and that beach life style just isn't for me, everyday. I have finally had the chance to wear something I feel more me in, since the weather has cooled down a bit for now. Do you every go through this, having to really dress for the weather and wearing something that's not really you?

Cortney's Fitness Letter #5

{Burger Salad}

Hey my fellow Fitness Shy Children!
The month of June was basically salad heaven for me. The temperature weather wise was super hot everyday, so cooking was definitely out of the question. I had so many different varieties of salad, I could have ran my own salad bar. But my most favorite salad would have to be a "Burger Salad"... I know what your thinking, "I can have a burger and still watch my weight"? Well, yeah! All I did was take a frozen burger patty, season it and place it in a skillet to cook up. When that was cooking I took out baby spinach, an avocado, tomato, onion and my new found favorite South Western Chipotle Dressing. When the burger is finish cut it up into night size pieces, sauté up some onions and put everything together... It's really that easy!

With all that food talk being talked about 
Let's focus this month on Portion Control. I know for myself portion control can be the hardest thing ever. But I have found some ways to help myself out with that problem that could also work for you. So the first way is buying some new dish wear. I don't mean going to get a whole new set, just a kids set. My favorite is the kids dishes at target. You can get a set that comes with a plate, bowl and cup and you might have to buy your kids spoon and fork separate. But for portion control this is simple. Everything you eat has to fit in the bowl or on the plate. 
Next is always having green tea. Because it can speed up your metabolism, make you feel fuller faster and help with weight lost. The way I do this is in the morning right when I wake up I will have a cup of green tea (really 16fl oz plain) this holds me over Intel lunch, since I'm not a morning eater anyways. Then I will have another cup 30min to 1hour after I at my lunch. This helps with digestion and you will be using the bathroom. My last cup is  after dinner... Same as lunch because before bed I like to drink water. ( lemon infused water works the same way as a detox)

So that is really all I have for this fitness letter but I do have to let you all know that the Full Time Energy Super Fruit and Berry Weight Loss Blend review will be up really soon and I have teamed up with Slim Quick to test out a product to review for you all, so I am very excited about that.

PS: Don't forget that you can get a FREE Graze Box... That's healthy snacks portion controlled out for you. So get yours today https://www.graze.com/us/p/CKYYWGGJU

Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Line Review

Head andd Shoulders Moisture Care Line
Hey fellow Shy Children!
Today I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the new Head & Shoulders Moisture Care line for Textured hair.
I got the opportunity to test these three products out from bzzagent.com. They didn't say I needed to do a review but since I mentioned these products In a recent favorites video on my YouTube channel and said I was going to tell you my thoughts, that is what I am going to do.
So this review is going to include these things for each product: Packaging, Product Review with Pros &
Cons and My Final thoughts on everything... So lets get started!

Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Co-Wash
Packaging: The packing is what every bottle that doesn't have a pump should be. I get to set the product down on either end and in the shower this is a great function. The righting on the packaging is easy to read and is in big bold font, so you will not get confused or mess up.

Product Review: I love this product as a co-wash and fill like it would make a great regular hair washing product since the 2in1 really didn't do its justice. When you apple this co-wash you will notice the nice moisture feeling right from the beginning. This product didn't feel like it was stripping my hair but my hair did feel clean afterwards. I would is this product once a week In between my regular hair washing routine. It's a great product to have if you don't like to wash your hair everyday but feel like you need to because of hot days or sweaty workouts. It does have a really light coconut smell with some other smell to it that I just can't put my finger on. If you don't like coconut scented things this product wouldn't be a problem for you and you should actually enjoy it. Last but not least remember that this is a Head & Shoulders product so dandruff helping is always in the mixture.

Pros- moisturizing, didn't strip hair, clean feeling, bottle can stand on both sides
Cons- none


Head & Shoulders Moisture Care 2in1 dandruff shampoo + conditioner
Packaging: same as the co-wash

Product Review: I have a hate love relationship with this product. When you apply it to your hair and work it in you will right off the bat notice the moisture but when you feel like everything is going great that shampoo sulfate stripped hair feeling comes along... You know that feeling that makes your hair feel waxy and weird!? Yes, that feeling. It only last like that during the applying process and the wash out but once you are done and you dry your hair or even let it air dry, it feels super moisturizing. I do have to let you all know that I don't suffer from dandruff but I do have a hard time keeping my textured hair and scalp moisturized. I did notice with this product that my hair was getting flakes 3 days in after washing it and I have never gone through that before. Even in the process of testing these products out I did skip a week and use my other shampoo and conditioners to see if it was really this 2in1 product and it was every time. This product does have a slightly stronger smell than the co-wash so if you are sensitive to smell you might get annoyed but it does smell good and not like a dandruff chemical shampoos.

Pros- great smell, moisturized well
  Cons-makes flakes, gives hair stripped feeling in shower

Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Scalp Soother
Packaging: the packaging is very simple of this product but everything is laid out Nicely and easy to read. The product does come with a cap thing so it's easy to store in a bag or desk without spilling over or making a mess. The size of the product is also great in that matter too.

Product Review: I is this product any time I have an annoying scalp itch that won't go away and it works wonders. I think this would be a great product for my lady's and gents that wear a sew in weave because it didn't relive the itch and it also has a tip on it that make it easy to get to the exact spot. I do have to let you all know that this product can get very addictive... Lol! I will is it on one spot and it will cool it down and make it feel extremely nice but then right after I would have another itch and another all in different places. But I still love the product. It does have a peppermint smell because peppermint oil is used into the smooth the scalp.

Pros: helps itchy scalp and makes my scalp feel moisturized 
Cons: can get really addictive 
My Final Thoughts: This is a great line and a great concept especially being targeted to people with Textured Hair. But like a lot of products things can be tweaked here and there and that is especially for the 2in1 Shampoo and conditioner. I can not tell you all you need to purchases or even test that product out... So I can't recommend it. But on the other hand the really do love the Co-Wash and the Scalp Smoother and feel like they would be great products for you to give it a try and add it to your routine.
I hope this review for the Head & Shoulders moisture care line was helpful. If you have any additional questions you would like me to answer about the products please leave them in the comments section below. 
* FTC: These products were sent to me for free from Head & Shoulders though Bzzagent.com for testing purposes only. I chose myself to write a review on the products and 100% honesty is key!
