The Hair Covering Store Review and Cinnamon Toast

Today I'm linking up for We Are That Family for Work For Me Wednesday.

Do you ever get nasty little hang nails? I hate how they can hurt so much! Well, I always seem to have a lip balm in my pocket, so I just use a little on my hang nails. It really helps moisturize them and heal them faster!

Have you heard of The Hair Coverings Store? It's a great place to buy all kinds of hair accessories. They contacted me recently and asked me if I'd like to do a review for them. They sent me this really cute multi~colored scarf headband. It's a great way to perk up an outfit.

It is more comfortable than a plastic headband (sometimes I have to take them off for a while). The Hair Covering Store has lots of other great hair accessories too, like~

I love these headbands, they are such an easy way to make your hair look great!

I think this leather band with the pick is a really fun way to hold your hair back!

I'm going to have to get one of these berets, I think they are super cute! Be sure to stop by The Hair Coverings Store and see all their cute things!

Right now if you use the Promo Code Spring, you can get 10% off your order!

The other day PW did a post on cinnamon toast. It was really funny because she told how NOT to make it, which was the way I always made it. Hey, it's not my fault, it's the way my mom taught me. I always made the toast, buttered it and then sprinkled on a cinnamon sugar mixture. Well, you know me, I had to try her way! Oh, my gosh, there is no going back now! Try it, it's yummy!

Cinnamon Toast

16 slices Bread (whole Wheat Is Great!)
2 sticks Salted Butter, Softened
1 cup Sugar (more To Taste)
3 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract (more To Taste)
⅛ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Smush softened butter with a fork. Dump in sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg, if using. Stir to completely combine.

Spread on slices of bread, completely covering the surface all the way to the edges.

Place toast on a cookie sheet. Place cookies sheet into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until golden brown and bubbling. Watch so it won’t burn!

Remove from oven and cut slices into halves diagonally.

My daughter always has hangnails. Thanks for the tip to pass along to her.

Oh, and I've always made my cinnamon toast the wrong way too. I was thinking I'd need to give PW's way a try; now I'll definitely do that!

Thanks for the tip about the hangnails. I get them all the time, and I never thought about using lip balm. Thanks!

Thanks so much for the b-day wishes!
