Closure Book Tour and Blast


There’s always the one…
He’s one person throughout life you think about every so often, the one who leaves his unique indelible mark on you, the person with whom you need closure.
For Margaret Collins that person was Mike Taylor. After he broke her heart seventeen years ago, she left everything she knew and reinvented herself. With a new home, a new look and a new name, Riley Williams is now an up and coming journalist given the assignment to interview a Mike Taylor. She never suspected he would be her Mike Taylor. With Mike having no hint of Riley’s true identity, she must decide if she will make him pay for sins he doesn’t remember committing, or if she can wipe away the past and be with the one man who she has always wanted?

Bad hair days - a thing of the past

Speaking of things I am leaving in the old year, bad hair days are on my list. I've had my days. With not getting around the way I used to, and not having as much time and energy to focus on my hair, I'm always looking for the right products to keep it manageable. Here's a guest post about one of the products I've tried and really like.....

Parnevu: Bad Hair Days - A thing of the past
Product review by Mary Sanders
Over the past few months I've used Parnevu T-Tree products on two willing participants regularly. I've been a licensed cosmetologist, manager and owner for over 50 years and value the many uses of tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil works against bacteria, viruses fungus and head lice. Shampoos with at least 5% tea tree oil are effective against dandruff because they treat the most common cause of dandruff. However, just having the tea tree in a shampoo doesn't make it the best shampoo for our hair. If that were the case, any old shampoo would do! I'm always looking for a product that will also give good conditioning, cleanse well, and not do further damage to the hair. Today, hair health has to be important to me, even if the client is not that concerned about it!
I tried 3 products from the Parnevu line: Shampoo, leave in conditioner and herbal grow. I wanted to use the product on the same persons over a period of time to get a good idea of what the real outcome of product use would be; and I we were all pleased. Let me share some photos:

We washed her hair once a week with the shampoo and conditioner, and used the herbal grow

Fourth week of using the product
Fifth week of using product

I don't know if it is visible from the photo's as much as it is to the naked eye, but her hair is full of moisture, as is her scalp. It has begun to lengthen. Their isn't any dryness in it at all.

This is the full picture of how her hair is looking now!
So, this is my review of Parnevu's T-Tree product line. It's a good product, at an affordable price. When you can get that it's best to stick with it!
