I'm loving Moana, or what I call it, "the next Frozen"!
A Walt Disney Studio's 3D creation; destine to be the next Frozen for boys and girls alike. It's the perfect mix of action, drama, 'musical' and comedy with a feel-good, happy ending.

One day, the predestined young lady sets out on a mission to fulfill the ancient quest of her ancestors. Together with the awesome demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), they embark on an action-packed voyage.
Soon enough, the movie's lead confidently declares "I am Moana!" She not only understands that she was chosen to make a difference, but she builds up enough faith in herself to make it happen; discovering herself along the way.

Brenda and I chatted briefly before my visit to Color and Hair Connections and I told her how I was terribly dissatisfied with my hair. She also knew my dirty little secret... that it had been quite awhile since my hair saw a pair of scissors.
Brenda, the owner of Color and Hair Connections in the Kentlands, knew exactly what to do. She jumped right into action and not only provided the TLC that my hair was in desperate need of, but she also applied a great deal of "hair therapy". How did it get so bad? Initially, I gave it the "I'll get to it next week" and as weeks turned into months and those bled into nearly years, it got a bit out of control and the damage had been done. My split ends were no longer just "ends" and my hair color had all but grown out to a modified Balayage (not cute or presentable)... Even wearing my 'do curly couldn't camouflage the untamed, frizzy mess my hair had become.
However, Brenda didn't event flinch. After being a hair professional for more than two decades (13 of these years, a lead in her own Salon in the Kentlands), she was ready for anything. She recommended a cut that could be worn curly or straight, but still modern and easy to manage (how did she know? ;). I left feeling a lot lighter that day; both in hair and spirit. Sitting right there in that swivel chair at Color & Hair Connection, I knew I found my new home. The time in her salon brought me back to the days when getting your hair done was just as much of a social experience as it was a hair cut and that's what I missed. The best part about this salon is that because it is priced so reasonably, I don't have to miss out on quality hair care ever again!
Take it from me: Brenda and her team of stylists at Color and Hair Connections are in the business of saving lives; one strand of hair at a time. These ladies can accommodate all hair types with all of the latest styles; whether you are looking for hair maintenance or total transformation! So, next time you want a great style at an amazing price and that "at home" feel, call and schedule an appointment for yourself. And when you mention Montgomery County Housewives, you can give it a try for $10 off a cut or $20 off a color service through December 31, 2016.

For those of you that frequent the Montgomery County Housewives events (or have seen our live feeds from the events), you've seen my hair tied up in a frizzy ponytail or a haphazard bun on many of occasions; more than I would care to admit. I'm not exactly sure the culprit behind this frizz I've been experiencing as of late; whether it be product that is not agreeing with my curls or perhaps the inevitable signs of aging. Regardless of the cause, my 'blah' hair has left me perplexed and mildly frustrated.
In the busyness of day-to-day life, I let my hair take a backseat. But why? I should know better! My mother was a hair stylist since way back when they were called "hair dressers". I basically grew up in a swivel chair as a high chair. I was enthralled by watching her tend to one client after the next on any given Saturday as a little girl, but my appreciation for having my own hair styled peaked a little while later while I was in my teens. At that point, I was often a "hair model" [read: guinea pig] for the high end salon that my mother worked in. I couldn't begin to recount the range of product applied to my hair from perms and straighteners to highlights, lowlights, flat irons, curling irons and anything in-between. Fast forward to a bulging schedule and not having that place to call home... until now!
I have to tell you all about the newest member of our family: our Dino Pet! You might be thinking: What exactly is a Dino Pet? If you ask my 3 1/2 yr old son Sekou what it is, he'd likely tell you that it is his "magical Brachiosaurus" whom he's named Big Blue.
After moving to our new home in August, we transitioned Sekou into a "big boy" dinosaur-themed bedroom; as per his request. Once I saw the Dino Pet online, I knew it would be the perfect component to compliment all of Sekou's new dinosaur decor; part pet and part ambiance all in one! However, you don't need to have a dino-themed room to welcome this little miracle into your home! And, best yet, the Dino Pet also doubles as a science experiment; introducing us to bioluminescence and photosynthesis!
I was quite impressed upon our Dino Pet's arrival. All of the pet's three components and instructional guide were over-nighted by BioPop in a perfectly secure and impeccably logo'd shipping box. Upon arrival, we unpacked the box and followed the easy-to-read instructions to encourage a glow within our new friend. It's as simple as: Fill -> Feed -> Observe! Just like a human, the Dino Pet has a circadian rhythm (a sleep-wake cycle). Just like any other pet, our Dino Pet enjoys light and rest and he even eats (fed weekly)!
While Sekou loves to touch Big Blue and help us *lightly* shake him to illuminate his pet, my husband and I ended up adding a corner shelf to our son's room, where Big Blue now resides. After all, the suggested age is 5+ to prevent Dino-abuse (i.e. excessive shaking).
Keep in mind though that it is critical to read the instructions immediately so that you can set him up promptly and understand how to care for him. However, I've got to say that Big Blue has to be the lowest maintenance member of our entire household! Our nightly "rotating" of our Dino Pet and his weekly feedings are now part of our Coppock household ritual! Sekou just loves his living bioluminescent pet and I'm sure your children (big or small) would be equally enthralled!
I’m Laura – wife, mommy and coffee lover! Im so excited to be the new face of MoCo Housewives and connect with you.
