Review: LegoLand Discovery Center of Westchester

I was recently given the opportunity to visit the LegoLand Discovery Center of Westchester with my family and give my honest review.

Located in the heart of Yonkers NY, In the most wonderful Ridge Hill Mall.
LegoLand is open to LEGO lovers of all ages and levels of building. This center has 15 different attractions which we were very excited to see!!

You are first greeted by the wonderful and friendly guides who will take your picture and give you a small tour on what's to come (as you can see in the photo below I was pretty excited).

 Here is where the tour begins as you are guided through the making of LEGO bricks and how many are processed in the factories.
My Daughter got to see her height in Lego blocks almost 160,000!!
After the tour we were onto MINI LAND!!
Mini Land was by far my favorite attraction takes over a million legos to build these wonderful landmarks pictured here are just some of the awesome displays you will see animate right before your eyes.

Football Stadium

GW Bridge
Times Square and NY Skyline
videoRock out!
LegoLand also features 4D movies every 15 minutes!
We also got to ride the Kingdom Quest  interactive Laser game!! video
With so much to do in one place it is hard to include it all but other things we got to experience:
Merlin's Apprentice Ride
Lego Construction Site and Model Builder Academy
Earthquake Tables
Duplo Village 
So what was the verdict from my family? I think the picture speaks for itself!!
 We also got to dine in the amazing Elevation Burger located above LegoLand Discovery Center

Review:HSI Professional Argan Oil Leave -In Hair Treatment

I have been sent this product to review through Tomoson to give my open and honest opinion.

This review is on the HSI Leave in Hair Treatment with Argan Oil
My hair is like a thirsty towel so it always needs some type of moisture in it or else it becomes a frizzy, clumpy mess so I am always up to try any type of oil or serum to quench it's need. I have tried HSI prior to this review but only in small doses but i do have to say even in that tiny sample packet I loved what I used.

So when Tomoson had this up to review I was stoked.
My hair is thick, wavy and also color-treated so this was the perfect product for me.
I took a quarter size amount into the palms of my hands and rubbed together, then I applied it all over starting from mid-shaft to the ends and even to my scalp. 

What is wonderful about this oil is you do not need a large amount ( i used a little more due to the thickness of my hair) and the smell of this product is awesome it also lingers after you have styled your hair (added bonus!!)

After blow-drying and then styling with my flat iron my hair was soft, sleek and very shiny!
I applied a little bit afterwards to lock in the shine and I was good to go!

This product retails for $32.99 on their website HERE but you can get 30% off with the code LOYAL. 


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Kimble Beauty Shine Serum and Elastics Review

I was sent these products to review through BrandBacker.

KIMBLEBEAUTY is a line created true to the concept of beautiful style and healthy hair. With its performance-tested formulas and quality ingredients, hair has the freedom to be styled without hesitation. While the diverse and versatile products can help achieve any desired look, the also treat and nourish the hair. Simply put, Kimble Beauty™ delivers great-looking uncompromised hair

Brazilian Nut and Acai Berry shine serum said to nourish your hair as well as give it silky shine does just that! I used a tiny amount after showering and massaged it into my roots, ends and the rest of my hair. I went about blow drying and styling and found it to be smoother and much more manageable then I used another tiny amount to seal in that shine, it lasted all day and I loved the smell.

Also accompanied with this serum were the Silk Infused non-metal elastics and I must say this was my favorite product from Kimble Beauty!! I am an avid pony-tail wearer and I use many an elastic and most of the time they wear and break or do not support my hair without somehow pulling it slightly when I release the pony-tail. These however, did NOT do that at all and I found I only had to wrap them twice around my hair to get a secure hold of my pony-tail. My hair stayed in place and I did not incur any weird bumps when I pulled the elastic out!! This retail for $12.00 (you get 6 in a package) on their website and are worth every penny!!

All in all I really enjoyed both products and would recommend them to anyone who wants silky, shiny hair and a great sleek pony-tail THANK YOU KIMBLE BEAUTY!!
