Spring Reads: You Can't Sit With Us

You Can't Sit Wth Us
Mean Girl Makeover Series
by Nancy Rue
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Pub. Date: December 9, 2014
ISBN: 978-1400323715
Pages: 224

Bullying is definitely an epidemic in our schools around the country. During my JH and HS years during the 90s, I was bullied on a daily basis. I can't imagine what kids go through with the added use of social media.

I don't keep track of all the new middle grade books are being released, so I missed out reading the first entry in the Mean Girl Makeover series from author Nancy Rue. However, I did receive a review copy of the second book, titled You Can't Sit With Us, a few months ago. My first intent was to read this book as soon I received it, but life happened and I just got around to it yesterday.

The book centers on a sixth grader, Ginger Hollingberry, whom just started school at Gold Country Middle School. Due to her hand-me-down clothes and greasy red hair, she is targeted by the school bullies, including Kylie Steppe; despite the fact the GCMS student body all, except for Kylie, signed an anti-bullying pledge.

Professional Teeth Whitening Kit Review

Everybody wants to have a Hollywood smile, but not everyone can afford or has the time to visit the dentist. There are many so-called whitening kits and strips on the market that are affordable, but finding one that actually works can be a bit of a challenge.

Over the last six months, I have tried several different kits and the latest was the Professional Teeth Whitening Kit from Green-Heart. This kit includes a tray, a storage container, 2 whitening gel syringes, a syringe tip and a LED Light.

Unlike other kits that I have tried, the mouth tray is only one piece, which is a softer, gel-like tray. You don't need an applicator for the product either. It's pretty easy to use. Just push out a small bead of the whitening gel within the tray, slip the tray over your teeth and leave it in your mouth for 15 to 20 minutes. You can also place the LED Light in front of the tray to help the whitening activate faster. It's recommended to wear the tray for 15 minutes twice a day for 4 weeks.

Get the Perfect Supplies For Easter!

Easter Day is less than a week away and I'm sure many people will be busy this week picking up last minute things for the Easter dinner with your family or for the Easter Parties with your friends. While I'm sure chocolate bunnies and food coloring for the Easter eggs are at the top of your shopping list, you shouldn't forget to buy the essentials for any party - paper plates, napkins and plastic cutlery!

Last week, I was sent the Easter Patchwork Kit to review from Birthday In A Box. My family's Easter gathering is relatively small, so this 8 serving kit is perfect. It features 10 Patchwork Cake Plates, 24 Assorted Plastic Cutlery (8 forks, 8 knives, 8 spoons), 20 Patchwork Luncheon Napkins, 54 in. x 85 in. Patchwork Plastic Tablecover, 12 Birthday Candles and 2 - 81 ft. x 1.75 in Streamer (pink & yellow).

B12Love Energy Patch Review

I'm always interested in trying out a new health product, so when I saw that the B12Love Energy Patch was available to review, I instantly signed up and luckily, I was one of the bloggers that was picked to review it.

B12 is an important vitamin that takes a big role in the formation of blood and functioning of our brain and nervous system. While we all have B12 in your system, many of us do have a deficiency.

A few weeks ago, I was sent the B12Love Energy Patch (8 patches). You might be wondering what the difference is between a regular supplement and a patch. Well, studies show that when taken orally only 1% of the B12 actually makes it into your bloodstream. These patches has 1200mcg of B12, which is a higher potency than regular tablets, capsules and pills.

B12 can help reduce fatigue, decrease memory loss, boost your mood, increase energy & concentration, improve the immune system and slow down aging. It will also give a boost to your blood cells, brain and nerves.

FSL Xylem Review

While I'm sure by now that all my blog readers know that I'm a big book worm, but some of you may not know that I'm also a big music lover. For me, music is way to forget all my problems and just relax. I went through countless number of AA batteries listening to my Walkman and later a portable CD player throughout my teen years in the 90s. And of course I went through many different headphones.

Now as an adult, I continue to listen to to music daily. Even as I'm writing this, I'm listening to a Halestorm album on my laptop. While I no longer have a Walkman, I do listen to music on a MP3 player, my cell phone and on my stereo.

A weeks ago, I was sent a nifty pair of FSL Xylem headphones to review. These earbuds have a cool wooden look to them. It has a microphone and a small one-button remote, which gives you full control over your music tracks and your phone calls with just one click. It features a 3.5mm socket, so it's compatible with most smartphones, tablets, iPods, MP3 players and laptops, as well as a small storage bag.

SizErect Ultra Review

If you have watched any sports program lately, then there is almost a 100% that you saw those uncomfortable male enhancement commercials, so it is absolutely no secret that the Viagra, Cialis & Levitra can help a male with erectile dysfunction, but it can be embarrassing going to a doctor for this problem. Plus, these prescriptions do cause side effects in some men.

Luckily, there are other healthier ways to boost your libido, such as exercise, better eating habits and dietary supplements.

About two weeks ago, I was sent the SizErect Ultra (Maximum Strength Male Enhancement Formula) to test out. Each box has 30 tablets, a whole month's worth. It's meant to help increase stamina, libido and sexual desire, as well as intensify pleasure and performance in the bedroom.

The ingredients include:

Vitamin E
Vitamin B3
Horny Goat Weed
Hawthron Berry
Damiana Leaf
Muira Puama

Body Merry Retinol Surge Moisturizer Review

I only came aware of the Body Merry brand earlier this year when I started trying out different skincare products. One of my favorite details about the brand is that they use Shea Butter in many of their products, which just happens to be one of the many ingredients in the Body Body Merry Retinol Surge Moisturizer. Shea Butter gives the moisturizer a heavenly scent.

While retinol has been around for quite awhile, it has only started to become popular in anti-aging products in recent years. This moisturizer contains 2.5% retinol, hyalurnoic acid, Vitamins E + B5 and green tea, along with other antioxidants, which all work together to create anti-aging cream that will hydrate and nourish your skin.

The ingredients in the product are:

Organic Aloe Vera
Organic Sunflower Oil
Palm Oil
Pentylene Glycol
Polysorbate 20
Potassium Phosphate
Tocopheryl (Vitamin E)
Plant Derived Hyaluronic Acid
Glyceryl Stearate
Cetyl Alochol

Main Line Advanced Retinol Moisturizer Review

Since I became interested in skincare products, I keep running across the ingredient called Retinol as almost all moisturizer has it.

What exactly is a Retinol?

Well, it's actually called retinoid tretinoin, an acne treatment that became FDA approved in the 60s and it's now one of the most popular ant-aging ingredient on the market today.

A few weeks ago, I was sent a 2 fl. oz. bottle of  Main Line Advanced Retinol Moisturizer, which is a powerful antioxidants cocktail that is meant to decrease the appearance of fine lines wrinkles and premature aging. It will help clean out your pores, moisturize your skin and make you look younger.

The Ingredients include:

Konjac Facial Sponge With Activated Bamboo Charcoal Review

Yep, here I am again writing a review for another skincare product. If you have been following my blog lately, then you probably already seen me reviewing a few Konjac sponges earlier this year. Right around that time I was also sent a Konjac Facial Sponge With Activated Bamboo Charcoal, but for some reason I forgot to write the review, so here I am writing it tonight.

The Konjac sponge is made from the plant of the genus Amorphophallus, which originates around eastern Asia, especially near Japan.

The Konjac Facial Sponge With Activated Bamboo Charcoal is meant to be used as an exfoliate to help kill off acne-causing bacteria. It can help balance the PH of the skin.

PurePremium Xtreme Testrone Review

For males, once you hit the 30-year-old mark, your testosterone levels start to decline, resulting in lack of energy, muscle loss, weight gain and problems in your love life.

For the last several months, I've been trying out many different testosterone dietary supplements; some have been great, while others were a complete dud.

About three weeks ago, I was sent a bottle (69 tablets) of PurePremium Xtreme Testrone from TrueSol Nutrition. This male potency tonic is supposed to improve muscle strength, increase energy, burns body fat and enhance sexual pleasure & satisfaction. Results take at least between 2 to 3 weeks to kick in.

It contains a 742 mg Propietary Blend of:

Horny Goat Weed Leaf Extract (Epimedium Grandiforum)
Tongkat Ali Root Extract (Eurycoma Longifolia)
Saw Palmetto Fruit Extract
Orchic Substance

Beautonics Derma Roller Review

I had never heard of a derma roller six-months ago, but I've expanded my review territory and started reviewing skincare products this year. In recent months, I've tried out two other derma rollers, which I've liked both them.

What is a derma roller?

Well, a derma roller is a hand-held roller with tiny needles on it. You roll these needles in four different directions (vertically, horizontally, diagonally) over an area of your skin to remove cellulite, stretch marks or scars.

Mind Games: 4 Ways Poker Can Make You Sharper, Better Person

In the computer-dominated, mostly automated world we live in each one of us is granted an insane amount of free time; so much of it that our ancestors would hardly be able to conceive of. In this scenario many people are faced with the difficult question of what they should spend their spare time on and if there is something out there, we can call it a hobby or a leisurely activity, that will not only entertain you, but keep you brain as sharp as a slashermovie weapon.

Well, we have a suggestion that may sound unusual at first glance, but those who are more familiar with it would probably give it two thumbs up; we are referring to the game of poker. Are you still us? Good. The best part is that you don't even need to have a deck of playing cards or a set of chips to play with, because in the aforementioned computer-dominated world, playing poker is as easy as reaching for your smartphone, tablet or PC to download an app or just log into your favorite website.
A very good hand of poker

Poker is a game where there’s little room for luck despite what the unitiated tend to infer. Poker is all about the strategy and, while you can indeed try to brute-force it, the most likely outcome of the steamroll strategy is failure. Therefore, your best bet (pun intended) is to learn the ins and outs of the game so that you’ll be able to handle them like second nature and use them to your advantage.

If you have no idea where to start, online poker tutorials offer exactly what you need to get an initial feel for the game. It is highly recommended to begin with a list of the most common poker terms and their meaning. The access to the poker vocabulary will open many doors and put you in the best shape to move on to the next step and learn the much-dreaded poker rules, from which it’ll be progressively clearer that poker is a thinking game as much as chess is.

The thinking nature of poker is proven by the fact that, before you even realize it, the skills developed along the way of the learning process will all of a sudden click. At that point, whether you’re sitting at a high-stakes table in the Monte Carlo or playing a game at your local poker room, you’ll be delighted to reap some great benefits connected with game along with the natural enjoyment that

Cozyna Ceramic Burr Coffee Grinder Review

Yeah, it's probably not a big surprise to anyone that follows this blog to find me reviewing a coffee related product as I'm a big coffee lover! I've tired many different coffee brands and I prefer beans over ground as I believe the beans have a fresher taste. I started out using just a Ninja chopper to grind the beans that is until I purchased an electric coffee grinder at a thrift store. It worked great for about a year and then it quit on me. Of course, I bought a new electric coffee grinder and it works great, but you can't grind very many beans at one time.

A few weeks ago, I was sent the Cozyna Ceramic Burr Coffee Grinder to review and as you can imagined, I was excited about trying a hand-held coffee grinder.

The Cozyna Ceramic Burr Coffee Grinder is made from stainless steel and features a Ceramic Conical Burr, so it will never rust. It will give you a wide range of grinding. You can grind the beans to the size that'll fit to whatever coffee brewer (espresso, French press, coffee maker, etc.) you are using.

Monday Morning Madness #54: Spring Cleaning & Reading Outlander

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Here in the Missouri, the weather was pretty nice. The grass is now green once again, so if it doesn't unexpectedly snow again, I'll probably be mowing the yard sometime in April. Despite the warm weather, I'm going to wait a few weeks before I do any planting in the vegetable garden; just in case the temperatures does drop again.

If you follow my blog regularly, then you would know that I have anxiety issues. Well, I had to fight those issues to create my first video review last week for the ABX DVD. While I had no problems filming myself attempting to the do the workout for a highlight reel, it took me forever to record the actual review for it.

I've already started some spring cleaning this month by boxing up some Christian books that I no longer wanted to keep. My intention was to drop them off at Salvation Army, but I ended up giving them to an elderly lady who was thrilled to have the books. I already have another box full of books for her. I have two other boxes filled with non-Christian books that I plan on donating to Salvation Army, but it will have to wait until I finish going through all my books, which includes two closets.

Speaking of books, I'm taking a slight break from reviewing books, so I can do some personal reading. I squeezed in some time Saturday afternoon to read the first two chapters in Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I hope to finish reading the novel, which is around 850 pages, before the television series returns on April 4th!

Stepping Back in Time with Outlander

An enthralling literary tale brought to life as a television drama, Outlander, based on the series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon, tells the story of an accidental time-traveler, World War II nurse Mrs. Claire Beauchamp Randall, Who finds herself hurled into the midst of an 18th century civil war in the Scottish Highlands. Socially branded as a “Sassenach,” or “Outlander” by the Scotts upon arrival, Outlander tells the story of how Claire earns her acceptance into Jacobite society; first as a healer and then as the wife of Highland warrior Jamie Fraser.

Now, after a very extended break between part one and part two of the first season, the series is set to return to Starz on April 4th. However, given the months that have passed since it was last on the air, we all need a refresher. Sparing yourself from binge watching the first half of the season (although that is an option for those with plenty of spare time and Starz Play or DTV) here’s what you’re going to need to know to be able to jump right back in on April 4th. Warning: Spoiler Alert!

Simultaneously depicting two timelines, the first eight episodes of Outlander not only reveal the progression of Claire’s life of romance and adventure with Jamie in 1743, but also tell the story of a grieving Frank Randall, Claire’s husband, who continues to look for his missing wife in 1945. While the creator, Ronald D. Moore, says that “there’s a lot of things we did in the first 30 to 40 minutes [of the pilot] that aren’t in the book or are compilations of things that happened in the book,” critics have concluded that the screen adaptation has only altered the plotline ever so slightly.

Bustle.com writer Jefferson Grubbs says that although the series’ remains faithful to the novel, the few places where the television drama departs add depth to the story. Grubbs points to the changes in the pilot that reveal Claire’s experiences as a WWII nurse; flashbacks to Frank and Claire’s marriage; depictions of Frank’s on-going grief despite the novel’s sole focus on events from Claire’s perspective, and the invented tussle between Claire and Father Bain over the healing of an injured boy. Grubbs argues that all of these changes, although minor, add depth to the story’s characters.

After introducing us first to Claire’s husband Frank Randall and then to the world of Jamie Fraser in the Scottish Highlands, intriguing events occur in the first eight episodes. From Claire’s first encounter with “Black Jack Randall” – her 20th century husband’s colder, crueler ancestor – she finds herself directly in harm’s way until she is brought under the wings of the MacKenzie Clan. The clan, involved in the ever growing Jacobite risings and suspicious of her origins, the Mackenzie men, specifically Dougal and Colum, keep Claire under a watchful eye but esteem her value as a healer – something she first demonstrated when aiding an injured Jamie.

Elite Man Multivitamins Review

While some studies suggest that multivitamins won't help boost a person's overall health, I happened to have a completely different opinion. Now I'm not a doctor, but I do believe that a multivitamin is an easy way to make sure you're getting the necessary daily vitamins and nutrients. If you are lifting weight, exercising or dieting regularly, then a multivitamin is a surefire way to boost your energy levels.

I've been taking a daily multivitamin for a few years now. Occasionally, I do switch brands as I like to try out new things. A few weeks ago, I was sent a bottle of Elite Man Multivitamins (90 tablets) to review. Just like other brands, the dietary supplement is meant to help you boost energy, increase stamina, improve your focus and promote proper digestion.

The ingredients include: Vitamin A, Vitmain C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitmain B2), Niacin, Vitmain B6, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iodine, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Maganese, Chromium, Molydenum, Chloride, Potassiu, Choline, Citrus Bioflavonid Peel Powder Complex, RNA, Inositol, PABA, Hesperidin Complex, Elite Green and Whole Foods Blend (Oat Straw Herb Extract, Oat Herb Powder, Wheat Grass Powder, Spirulina Algae Extract, Apple Pectin Powder, Chlorella Cracked, Cell Wall Powder, Barley Grass Powder, Sodium Copper Chlorophyllin), Elite Omega Oils Blend (Flax Seed Powder, Sunflower Oil Poweder, Borage Oil Powder), Elite Energy and Focus Blend (Echinacea Purpurea Herb Powder, Ginger Root Powder, Milk Thistle Seed Poweder, Cayenne Pepper Powder, Asian Ginseng Root Extract, Ginkgo Leaf Extract, Goldenseal Root Powder), Elite Liver Cleanse Blend (Garlic Blub Powder, Wheat Grass Powder, Beet Root Powder, Carrot Root Powder, Parsley Leaf Powder, Asparagus Root Powder, Broccoli Plant Powder, Cabbage Leaf Powder, Brussels Sprout Powder, Cauliflower Blub Powder, Collards Leaf Powder), Elite Detox Blend (Grapefruit Seed Extract, Apple Fruit Powder, Papaya Fruit Powder, Peach Fruit Powder, Starwberry Fruit Powder, Cabbage Plam Fruit Powder, Cranberry Fruit Poweder, Blueberry Fruit Powder, Biberry Fruit Powder, Pomegranate Fruit Extract, Pineapple Fruit Powder, Orange Fruit Powder, Noril Fruit Extract), Elite Immunity Blend (Shiitake Mushroom Extract, Maitake Mushroom Powder, Reishi Mushroom Extract), Elite Digestive Enzyme Blend (Betaine HCI, Bromelain, Papain, Amylase, Lipase, Cellulase, Protease), Elite Colon Probiotic Blend (Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Lactobacillus Acidophillus) Rutin, Quercetin, L-Glutathione, DNA, Boron and Lutein.

Spring Reads: Don't Stay Up Late: A Fear Street Novel

Don't Stay Up Late
A Fear Street Novel
by R.L. Stine
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Pub. Date: April 7, 2015
ISBN: 9781250051622
Pages: 304
Buy Link: Amazon

It's almost hard to imagine that the Fear Street series by R.L. Stine first started in 1989! I was an eight-year-old back then and I didn't start reading the series until several years later. I believe the first book that I read in the series was Fear Street Cheerleaders: The First Evil.

The Fear Street series was extremely successful with teens throughout the 90s', but the fad disappeared quickly that is until R.L. Stine brought the series back last year with Party Games. The second novel in the new series is arriving in bookstores on April 7th and is titled Don't Stay Up Late! As you can see by the cover, the book has an 80s' horror vibe to it.

Don't Stay Up Late centers on Lisa Brooks, a teen that almost loses everything in one single car crash. After mending her wounds, she returns to Shadyside High and reunites with her boyfriend Nate and her friends Saralynn and Isaac. While the guys plan on helping Saralynn make a horror movie for her film project for school, Lisa searches for an after-school job to help her mother pay the bills.

Thanks to her shrink, Dr. Shein, Lisa gets a job babysitting Brenda Hart's eight-year-old son, Harry. There's only one rule to follow, Harry is not allowed to stay up late. Of course, Lisa thinks absolutely nothing about this rule, that is until she sees a strange green creature in the Hart's house. Of course everyone, including her shrink thinks she's crazy, but when a few murders occur, Lisa is convinced that there's a creature on the loose on Fear Street.
