Helmets for the NFL Collector

Following the NFL has become a passion in the US, if not worldwide. Attendance and TV ratings are at an all time high. NFL merchandise purchases have skyrocketed in the past several years.

The serious NFL collector has a wide variety of items to choose from when following their favorite team. Jerseys, banners, coffee cups key chains and seat cushions are all on the list of items for purchase.

But the most prized item for purchase may are NFL replica helmets. Jerseys fade and wear out, key chains can be lost, banners can be torn, but an NFL helmet can last a life time. A quality made helmet should last forever, and can be passed down from one team fanatic to the next generation fan. If lucky enough, collector can seek out their NFL player and have the helmet autographed.

An authentic NFL collector helmet will be full sized, the same as is worn by the player on the field. It will have the same color, design and logos of the NFL team. The logo will be licensed by the NFL as an official design and meet NFL licensing requirements.
A current NFL style helmet is not the limit of the collector’s wish list. A “throwback” helmet is a trending item among fans and serious collectors. NFL logos, uniforms and colors change over time. Throwback memorabilia incorporates previous team design and colors. In fact, the NFL has at least one game per season where a team will wear its throwback uniforms.

A Denver Broncos orange helmet, a New England Patriots white helmet with a minuteman hiking the ball and the Buffalo Bills “standing buffalo” are examples of throwback logos. Due to their popularity, replica helmets with these logos are now available for purchase for each NFL team. Some teams may have throwback helmets with designs dating back to the 1930’s, such as Chicago, Green Bay and Pittsburgh. AFC teams have helmet designs as early as 1960.

A quality vendor of NFL memorabilia will carry a full array of past and present NFL helmet designs. Attention to detail will be made in construction of the memorabilia and the products sold will be licensed by the National Football League. They will offer other accessories to catch the eye of the team fanatic and offer reasonable prices. If shipping is necessary, costs should be regular and customary rates. For the hard core fan, the purchase is one they will permanently cherish.


Guitars for Elite Musicians

Guitarists spend years practicing their craft and honing their skills. They know that practice is the key to great playing, which is why they find themselves thinking about their guitars every day and every moment of the day. When you find yourself daydreaming about playing and your fingers itching to pluck the strings, it might be time that you make an investment in your future.

Guitars from Jim Olson

If there is one name that you need to know in the guitar world, it’s Jim Olson. Known around the world for his amazing designs and creations, you’ll find some of the most elite guitarists playing his instruments. The sounds produced by those guitars are unlike anything you ever heard before. Though the name isn’t as recognizable as Fender and others, you can find some of the best musicians playing Olson guitars on albums and in concerts. Olson makes just 60 or fewer guitars every year, but when you want to get serious about your playing, you can buy one of these instruments.

Why Choose an Olson?

You should choose an Olson for the same reason that so many other musicians do: superior sound. As soon as you put your hands on one of these guitars, you’ll understand why it’s such a popular brand. From the smoothness of the neck to the ease of plucking the strings, it has everything a professional musician could want. Find out more about why Olson is one of the top brands in the field.

How Much Does an Olson Cost?

One of the first questions that you might ask is how much an Olson will cost. The question you should ask if how much of an investment can you make in your future. You can walk into any music store in the world and walk out with a basic guitar for less than $100, but those guitars won’t help further your career. Even if you think of playing the guitar as just a hobby, you won’t go far with a cheap guitar. Buying a guitar from Olson will cost more than purchasing a standard guitar or one from a mid-level brand, but these guitars have better sound and quality too. The performance that you get from an Olson is unparallelled. With sale prices and some clearance prices occasionally available, you may find a more affordable model from Olson that will meet all your needs.

Having Fun with Hasbro Simon (Review)

I mentioned on my previous post that my kids and I are attending the Walmart Toyland Event. We did last Saturday (Dec. 6th) and it was super fun. Well honestly, the kids had so much fun and I was busy chasing them around. Two toddlers out in the toy section, well, you can picture how would that be. I’ve always avoided going out by myself tagging along to super energetic toddlers but the Walmart Holiday Toyland was something we couldn’t pass up. I promised my kids and I am not one who doesn’t keep her promise.

Amidst the chaos and fun, I didn’t got the chance to take a decent photo. They were so distracted with every shiny, blinking, noise making thingies that one would run one way and one the other. I couldn’t keep them still. As paranoid as I am, I am more worried about not losing one of them than taking my pictures. Anyway, the event was a successful one. The Walmart employees are so great at showing toys and it’s awesomeness. Which is great! I am bad at explaining toy specs to my kids. We bought Hasbro Simon amongst many others.

About this item:

  • Challenge your memory with the Simon Swipe Game. Slap the lights to conquer the colors and beat your opponent. To play this Hasbro Simon game, just tap the color when you see one light and swipe when there are two. You need to reverse when the lights move clockwise and then go back. It will start out easy, and when you think you have the hang of things, it will build through 16 blazing fast levels. There are four different modes to choose from when you play this Simon color game, including the classic one that we all grew up with. Each one will exercise your mind in distinctive ways. It comes with the device and a guide to get you started. Since it’s designed for one or more players, you can practice by yourself or challenge a friend to a duel. Try out the different variations and get your memory and reflexes in tip-top shape. Then get others involved for a lightning-quick round. If you want to beat the Simon Swipe game, you will have to be at the peak of your skills.

Simon Swipe Game:

  • Designed for 1 or more players
  • 4 awesome games including classic Simon
  • Hasbro Simon game has 16 levels
  • Swipe solo or make it a party
  • Includes game unit and game guide
  • Requires 3 AA batteries (demo batteries included)

My kids are great with just about every game. They can master a game in one sitting. Me, on the other hand is lacking the skill. I can read for days but playing computer games or any electronic game is not for me. Challenge me in a game of scrabble and you’ll gain me as a friend. Haha! I am old school. But board games aren’t old school, right?! It is still “in” somewhere. Right?!


I love that this toy can make my kids learn the value of sharing. They can play it together and I wouldn’t hear “Mommy, ____ took my toy!” And the attention this game demands is amazing. My kids learned how to remember color patterns on the game like a boss. I tried playing it and they were like, “No, wrong mom!” Ha! My kids are smarter than me. Good for them.



Hasbro Simon Swipe has definitely made it to the top of our family game night event. This will make a great gift to anyone on Christmas and a must have for every family who practices family game night. 🙂


BlueBee Pals My Techy Buddy (Review)

A kid could never have enough loveys. My daughter has a bed full of them, she doesn’t have enough space to sleep in anymore. But there is always that one lovey that is special. In our case that lovey is Leo the Lion from Bluebee Pals.

Bluetooth Enabled, Talking Interactive Plush Lion.

My daughter, Izzy, instantly loves Leo. We have had Leo for about a week and everywhere she goes, Leo is next to her. She also has an iPad which makes playtime with Leo even more amazing. Her iPad is full of educational apps. Leo is bluetooth connected to the iPad. Every sound the game makes, Leo lip syncs. It is awesome. I’ve never seen my daughter enjoy her digital “study time” more.


Bring smiles to your little ones this coming holidays. Bluebee Pals would make an excellent gift.

Show Thanks and Love With Nicole Lee Handbags

I’ve never met a girl/woman who doesn’t like… let me rephrase that, doesn’t LOVE handbags. I have a 3 year old girl who gets giddy around adorable handbags/purses at the store! Handbags are a woman’s life extension. My husband would say I carry my house inside the store. I literally have everything I need in my purse to survive a day or two. A reliable handbag to carry my necessities is all I need. There is one handbag brand that I have personally tried and tested… that is Nicole Lee.

I have 3 Nicole Lee Handbags in my closet. So yes, this isn’t just something I acquired days ago but I actually own several of them. I swear but its durability, quality, cuteness and they are very stylish. I turned heads, women! And had been stopped several times on the street just to be asked where I got my handbag. LOL

And as I have mentioned, I needed something that could possibly carry my entire house with me. Okay, maybe not my entire house… just some. The much needed ones. I am a mom! My handbag doubles as a diaper bag, snack bag and toy bag. If you are a mom like me you’ll understand.


As you can see my Dorothy Dream Catcher Print Shopper Bag can hold everything. Well, that’s just half of my things right there though but there is plenty space left for more! Much more. The lining is gorgeous too. It has pockets for things that you use often like phone, lipstick, powder, chapstick, etc… So no need to dig through.

If you have been following me on my other blog the McMfitMom, on Facebook, and on Instagram, you know that I’ve been training hard this past 6 months. In my younger days, I used to run, A LOT. I was fit, healthy and happy. After I had my babies, I haven’t done anything physical. The most physical thing I did was probably chasing my toddlers around. I felt heavy, I was happy but not with my body and so unhealthy. I have jiggly fat everywhere. My arms, legs, midsection and in places I never thought would jiggle.

Fast forward 6 years, here I am now starting on my bodybuilding journey. It was totally different from running which I used to love and do. Bodybuilding makes me feel strong, not only healthy. Not many ladies lift free weights. I often get looked at funny when I head straight to the free weights room instead of going towards the rows of treadmill machines at the gym.

Hydrating before, during and after training is a “must do”. I could drink a liter easy while lifting. That’s before I discovered BODYARMOR.

Electrolytes + Vitamins + Coconut Water + Natural Flavors, Colors & Sweeteners


I have been very lucky to have given a chance to try BODYARMOR.


It has completely changed how I hydrate. I love every flavor and the way it makes me feel refreshed in every sip.


It comes in 6 delicious flavors.

  1. Fruit Puch
  2. Tropical Punch
  3. Strawberry Banana
  4. Mixed Berry
  5. Orange Mango
  6. Grape


It is hard to pick a favorite flavor. Can I just say, I love them all?

These days, my training won’t be complete without my BODYARMOR. It is as vital as my pre and post-training protein shake. BODYARMOR unlike any sports dink won’t make you feel guilty drinking it. Everything is made from natural ingredients. When you work hard to achieve your desired body, it is just right that you look after what you put in it. No nerve-popping-ingredient-only-God knows how to pronounce it on its label. Best of all, the coconut water in it is amazzzzzing!

Upgrade your sports drink now! To know more about BODYARMOR, visit their website HERE.

August Beauty Box 5 (Review)

The “ber months” are fast approaching! Yay! I don’t know about you but I am so ready for summer to be over. It’s waaaaayyyy too hot here in Texas. The A/C in our car stopped working so driving around in mid-afternoon is a chore. You’ll be drenched in sweat but the time you arrive at your destination no matter how close that is. The heat goes up to 3 digits. So yeah, Fall season hurry up will ya?!

On the other hand, I got my new BB5 box!!! Yay! One of the things I look forward to every month is this box. Remember those shower gel samples?! I got the chance to use them. We go to my in-law’s house to swim in their pool every week. The shower gels really came in handy. Actually, I already ran out. Ha! And the lotions too. So yeah, everything in the Beauty Box 5 is useful. You may not use every single one of them right away but when time comes, you’ll be glad you got them on hand.


What is Beauty Box 5?

  • Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month. Aimed at introducing women to new cosmetic products and educating them on best practices, Beauty Box 5 scours the market to find the best products for your lifestyle.

How to get the box?

  • Subscribing to Beauty Box 5 is really easy. You can choose  from the 3 affordable subscription plans that they have and get one that you think will work best for you. Check subscription plans here.

For my review, I got the Beauty Box 5 box for the month of August.


Here’s what’s inside!!!


Here’s what I got:

Style Essentials – Nail Polish


  • In this box, I love this the most. The color of the glitter is gorgeous. It goes well with those mint hued nail polishes. My daughter went gaga with this. She’s 3 so I was surprised. She kept on saying “Oh nice!” as I put 3 coats of this on her nails for more glitters. LOL

Nanacoco – Lip Glass


  • As a lipstick-crazy person it’s funny how I have never tried a lip glass ever. I love matte and cream lipstick. I don’t like them shimmery, sticky or super shiny. And by the name itself “lip glass” I presumed this will be super shiny, I was wrong. This has more cream texture on it. It’s shear but really pretty. Great for casual days and if you want to go for the au naturel look. I can see myself wearing this everyday, even at the gym.

Novex – Brazilian Keratin


  • My first time hearing (seeing?! LOL) this brand. My hair is as I call it “dead”, blame the constant bleaching. I am hoping this will resurrect my hair. Make it un-dead! Haha! Like a zombie?! Can’t stop giggling now. My un-dead hair! LOL We shall see. 🙂

Pur-lisse – Pur-Protect SPF 30


  • As I mentioned above, we have been swimming for almost every week now so this is PERFECT!!! Shall be using this soon and maybe will be buying more. I really don’t have a decent facial SPF cream. I use the usual sunscreen for the body and pat on my face. Yup, so ghetto. LOL

La Fresh – Travel Lite Makeup remover Wipes


  • A girl could never have enough makeup remover wipes! This is something I would happily accept in my box if they will include one in every single one of them. I have it in ALL the purses that I got. I also have them in my bathroom. Haha

This month’s box verdict:

This month’s box just made the top of my BB5 Favorite Boxes of all time. Every single item in this box will be used up pretty quick! I love it! On a scale of 1-10, 10 as the highest. This a perfect 11!
