Hi everyone!

 

Hope you’re enjoying what’s left of summer. August brings with it corn on the cob and all the other fresh veggies we love, but also signals the end of summer, and before you know it, the kids will be back in school.

Have you been watching the summer Olympics? I’ve been glued to the screen since they started! I love watching all the different sports that we normally don’t get to see. You can keep up with the games with the iVillage Guide to the 2012 Summer Olympics here.

Have you checked out the iVillage Get Great Hair Community Challenge? Sign up here and you'll receive daily emails which include hair care tips, tutorials and solutions for your hair type. There’s also a message board where you can get advice from our expert, Gabriel Samra, the beauty expert on the Telemundo morning show! The challenge started on Monday, so hurry and join today.

Free & Fun Stuff

The inside scoop on sweepstakes, contests, and other free and fun stuff happening on iVillage is all here!
