Giveaway: FairyTales Hair Care Lice Kit (Keep Handy for When it is REALLY Needed)

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

Back 2 School Giveaway!

If you have kids in school, you know how it feels when you get “the note.”  Which note is that?   The one that informs you that there has been a case of head lice reported in your child’s classroom.  Or, worse yet, you get the phone call to come up and pick up your child as he or she has already been infected with lice.  UGH.

Dealing with lice is difficult.  There are so many treatment methods out there from olive oil to mayonnaise.  And, it isn’t just heads you have to treat, you have to wash bedding, place stuffed animals into plastic bags and clean…..the list goes on and on.  Isn’t there anything you can do to prevent your child from bringing home these little pests?  Yep!  There is!

Fairy Tales Hair Care offers several natural products you can use on your own kids to help prevent or even eliminate lice and their eggs.  They offer Rosemary Repel, which is a shampoo you can use daily, which can help keep lice from even attaching to your child’s head.  If it is too late and your child already has a case, you can use their Lice Good-Bye and safely eliminate lice and their eggs — naturally!  Yes — naturally!

Sure, there are many items you can find in the store to help if you have to deal with this issue.  However, those are all filled with horrible chemicals.  Chemicals I sure don’t want to put onto my kids’ heads!  When we had a chance to try this product ourselves, I first and foremost loved the fact that it was natural.  That gave me peace of mind to know that what I was putting onto my child’s head was safe.

We actually tried the Rosemary Repel Conditioning Spray.  What I love about this is that we just spray it on after we comb their hair in the morning and it is like “an invisible force field” to help repel lice, should a case pop up in my children’s classrooms.  It smelled great and left no horrible residue either — which was an added perk.

It seems that we always are reactive rather than proactive when it comes to this common childhood pest.  Fairy Tales Hair Care can help you prevent it from happening to you in the first place!  You can learn more about this product on their website.

Lice Good-Bye Survival Kit ($29.99 value)

How to Create a Minecraft Bedroom

how to create a minecraft bedroom |

For the past year, I saved my money and watched for deals on all things Minecraft.  When my kids all went to their grandma’s house for a week, I went into each room, painted and redecorated it so that it would match with their own personality.  For my son, that meant Minecraft.  The kid – well – let’s say he is a tad obsessed with the game!

I collected different items from various sites and then put them all together to make his room truly one of a kind!

minecraft bedding


BEDDING.  This is the main focal point of the room.  I was able to find this set on  It included the comforter, bedskirt, 2 pillow shams and sheet set.  I actually did not like the way the sheet felt, so I picked up grey ones at Target instead (and it was money well spent).  This bedding has gone up in price since I purchased it and is now $117.

WALL ACCESSORIES.  This was probably the most fun part of the project. I was able to find Minecraft Posters and Decals on Zulily when they had a Minecraft sale. You can find these same posters now on Amazon priced from $3.17 – $5.65.   These same decal sets are priced from $68.49 – 74 on Amazon.

The wall torches were toys he already had, but you can find them at Target for $19.99.  This sells for nearly $30 on Amazon.  They can either stand on a dresser or cabinet, or you can fold down the back, where you will find two slots so you can attach it to your wall.


We wrapped up the decor by hanging 2 black floating shelves, which we purchased from Target.  He is able to put his wood crafts and other important “treasures’ on his shelf.  These are mounted directly above his new desk.




FURNITURE.   Since we upgraded my son’s bed from a twin to a full, we had to purchase a new headboard.  We opted for a bookshelf headboard, to allow for a bit more storage.  The one we found was on Wayfair and sells for $137.

Our son also needed a desk and chair, so he would have the proper set up for his homework.  Now that he is in second grade, he will have a bit more to do and we needed to be sure he would have a quiet place to work, without the distraction of the television or other family members.  We found the desk (on sale and used a coupon) at Target and the chair (on sale) at Office Max.

Our son is also 110% all boy.  He has play guns, backpacks, dress up clothes and more.  We wanted a place to store those items, which would keep them all organized, but yet easy enough for him to find and play with when he wanted to.  We did splurge a little and purchased a Footlocker online at Vermont’s Barre.  We were able to use some codes and did save, but it was still cost a bit more.  However, we have been very pleased with the quality and love how much it will hold.

WALL COLOR.  We opted for a soft grey in order to compliment the white trim.  It not only blended with the bedding and decor, it is neutral.  So, if he changes his mind in a few years and wants different bedding, we will not have to spend the time (or money) having to repaint his walls.  Again, we were able to pick up the paint when the store had a sale and did not tint it until we were ready.  Then, we took it back and they tinted it for us — at no charge at all!  We were able to save 40% off of all of our paint by using this easy tip.


Our son could NOT be happier with his new bedroom.  He was over the moon when he saw it and he still loves it.  In fact, he even likes to clean it up (at least for now)!
