The set includes:

1 - Beautiful Gift Box
1 - Handmade Matcha Tea Bowl/Cup (Chawan)
1 - Handcrafted Bamboo Tea Whisk (Chasen)
1 - Ceramic Matcha Whisk Holder

Styles II Fitness Massage Body Stick Roller Review


When I started 2015, my main priority was to get into shape, but I've had several setbacks, include a few muscle strains and a few colds. Now, there isn't much I can do from preventing myself from catching the cold or flu, but I can help get rid or even prevent muscle strains without having to go to an expensive chiropractor or a massage therapist.


Earlier this month, I was sent the Styles II Fitness Massage Body Stick Roller to try out. The roller is basically an 18 inch metal bar with seven white rollers and black rubber handles on each end.

The roller is an effective therapy tool for muscle strains, pains and trigger points. It helps break down soft tissue, increases blood flow and increases circulation.

Eco Friendly BPA Free Sports Water Bottle Review


 

It seems when it comes to fitness everybody wants to be as eco-friendly as possible, especially when it comes to water bottles as nobody wants to be exposed to harmful chemicals.

A few weeks ago, I was sent an Eco Friendly BPA Free Sports Water Bottle to review. Ever since I started the Insanity Max: 30 program over three weeks away, I've been drinking twice as much water, so of course I was interested in a new water bottle.

A 2-pack of these water bottles goes for $14.97 on Amazon. These bottles are made from FDA APPROVED 100% food grade silicone. Each bottle holds about 20 ounces of water. The bottles are free of BPA and Phthalate. They're also dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe!

Review:

I fell in love with the Christian fiction genre when I was in my early 20s and since then I've been exposed to many great writers, including one of my new favorite authors, Colleen Coble. While Colleen is known for her historical romances, this time around she is releasing a thrilling mystery, titled The Inn at Ocean's Edge

The novel centers on a young woman, Claire Dellamare, whom is heading to the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine for a business meeting. Returning to this hotel is bringing back haunting memories for her. She was four-years-old when she disappeared from the hotel and mysteriously showed up a year later with a note pinned to her dress. The police were baffled by the mystery and Claire doesn’t remember where she was for the missing year.

Around the same time of Claire's disappearance in 1989, Luke Rocco's mother also vanished. Now fate has brought Luke back to Hotel Tourmaline and his path crosses with Claire, who begins to have flashbacks from her childhood. They decide to team up in the attempt to unravel the mystery, but doing so might just bring a murderer into their sights.

Review:

Arriving on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD on Tuesday April 28 is the intense thriller The Boy Next Door. Directed by Rob Cohen, the film stars Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, John Corbett, Ian Nelson and Kristen Chenoweth. Bonus Features include deleted scenes, The Making of The Boy Next Door and Feature Commentary with Director Rob Cohen.

Jennifer Lopez stars as Claire Peterson, a high school literature teacher, whom is recently separated from her cheating husband Garrett (played by John Corbett). Despite the fact that her best friend Vicky Lansing (played by Kristin Chenoweth) advises her to get a divorce, part of her is not ready to give up on her marriage. Well, that is until a nineteen-year-old, Noah Sandborn (played by Ryan Guzman), moves into the house across the street.

Ryan looks like a decent teenager that is taking care of his wheelchair-bound uncle. He quickly charms his way into Claire's life by befriending her shy teenage son Kevin (played Ian Nelson). Feeling depressed late one night, Claire makes the mistake of sleeping with Ryan!

The next morning she realizes that all it was was a one night stand, but Ryan wants more than that. He enrolls into her literature class and begins to stalk her. At first, Claire thinks it's just a simple crush that will go away, but she quickly realizes that Ryan has a dangerous obsession with her.

Girls Season 4 Review





Now available on Digital HD is the entire 4th Season of the HBO critically-acclaimed series Girls. Produced by Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, This Is 40), the series stars Lena Dunham (whom also created the series), Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Adam Driver.

The series follows twenty-something aspiring writer Hannah Helene Horvath (played by Lena Dunham), whom is financially cut off from her parents after she graduates college. With the support of her friends Marnie Marie Michaels (played by Allison Williams), Jessa Johansson (played by Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna Shapiro (played by Zosia Mamet), she awkwardly tries to make a life of her own; only to stumble along the way.

Season 4 takes things in a new direction with Hannah leaving New York to get her MFA in Iowa; leaving her boyfriend Adam (played by Adam Driver) and her friends behind. Marnie continues her affair with Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), who's girlfriend (played by Natalie Morales) is starting to suspect there is something between them. Shoshanna is finally graduating college and she has a hard time finding a job. Despite going to AA, Jessa still has many personal problems to overcome.

The ten episodes includes:
