Bebe Bella Designs Crinkle Toy Review 

 I was sent the Bee Bella Designs Crinkle toy.  The toy is a 5'' x 5'' square, featuring a soft textured exterior and a noisy crinkly interior.  My son absolutely loved making the toy crinkle all over the house and in the car.  This toy definitely gave my son a lot of joy for something so simplistic!!!

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops

I was sent Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops to try and review.  I have to say they taste great!  The cherry was my favorite, but the honey had a good taste as well.  These drops not only tasted good but also worked wonderfully to ease my sore allergy ridden throat.  The texture starts like any other cough drop then become the classic softish texture.  The drop seems to melt in your mouth effectively coating your throat and soothing it.  

Here is a little back info about the product from the company:
1870 J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia and, along with his brother, sold their first batch of what they called 'Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets.' In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat and those of his family members, Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia, he could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila, Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born. "I have discovered something," Pine wrote, "which will give quick throat relief to thousands afflicted as I was." He added,"Perhaps I won't make much money out of this. But I can make people happy, and that's more important than money." Mr. Pine was being unduly modest, as his "discovery" would become one of the most successful, most delicious and most unique throat lozenges in the world. Nor has the recipe changed appreciably since it was first introduced to the public over 140 years ago.

Truth be Told: Adam becomes Audrey Book Tour!

Truth Be Told: Adam Becomes AudreyMeeting the man of your dreams, falling in love and getting married. It sounds like every woman’s dream. But what if you suddenly found out that your husband self-identified as and wanted to become a woman? That’s exactly what happened to Connecticut-based reporter Alexandra Bogdanovic.

As the daughter of music and television icons, Sonny and Cher, Chastity Bono grew up in the public eye. So it was shocking to people everywhere when she became Chaz. Her decision to “become” a man made headlines around the world, but Bono is not alone. Transgender men and women frequently appear on television talk shows and reality programs to share their stories. In doing so, they inevitably get the attention they seek; although it may not always be the kind of attention they want.

While many come forth in an effort to promote tolerance, acceptance and understanding in mainstream society, their decision to live as – or in some cases have surgery to become – the opposite gender often sparks curiosity and visceral reactions born from ignorance.

Truth Be Told: Adam Becomes Audrey, a new book from author Alexandra Bogdanovic, tells the other side of the story. Part tragedy, part comedy, part love story, the book tells the story of the author’s real life experience of meeting a man, falling in love, getting married and finding out her husband wanted to become a woman. This book is the story of what happened after she learned the truth.

Buy the book from......
Alexandra Bogdanovic was born in Bronxville, N.Y. and grew up in Greenwich, Conn. She knew she wanted to be a reporter at age 12, and received her first byline in the Greenwich Time when she was a high school freshman. By the time she graduated from the Convent of the Sacred Heart in 1987, she'd been covering high school sports for a daily newspaper for four years.
In 1991, Bogdanovic graduated from Manhattanville College in Purchase, N.Y., with a Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in writing. She officially began her journalism career as an editorial assistant at The Advocate in Stamford, Conn., soon after graduation.

She then decided to devote her efforts to community journalism in order to have a more direct and meaningful impact in the towns and villages where she worked. One of her greatest challenges while working in Rye was covering the mutual aid response and local reaction to the Terrorist Attacks of September 11.

The veteran reporter is now a freelance writer. She enjoys spending her free time with family and friends, chilling with her cat, Eli and watching and photographing high-goal polo.

Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale with Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


     Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale with 
   Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial Review

                I was sent the Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale with Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial to review.  I was immediately struck by the appearance of the scale.  It is creamy tempered glass with the dial looking like a speedometer.  The scale looks so awesome and even my husband was impressed.  Not only does it look good but it is super easy to use.  Other scales I have had in the past you had to tap the scale and then wait while it calibrated, with the Ozeri Rev you once the batteries in you can step right on with no waiting.  That feature is especially great when I want to weigh my toddler as he is not patient enough to wait for calibration lol. 
                 Once you are done weighing yourself the scale turns itself off so not waiting battery life.  Another neat function of this scale is you can set an alarm if you want to weigh yourself at the same time each day.  All in all this is a fantastic scale I recommend it to anyone who wants an efficient, great working scale that also looks fantastic!

Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Razor Review

I received a Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Razor to try for free from BzzAgent.  As the mommy of two rambunctious boys, I don't get a lot of time for myself.  So when I go to take a shower time is very precious!!  Honestly I will sometimes skip shaving just because it is hard to take the time to do so when you have a toddler beating on the bathroom door hollering for you to hurry.  So I was super excited to try the Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Razor since my skin is super sensitive and prone to razor burn.  When I tried the razor I was amazed at how slick the razor head got, perfect for a super close and unbelievably smooth shave and the handle fit great in my hand no slips and easy to use.  The razor was so wonderful and even with making my shave quick I did not get any cuts or razor burn.  My legs stayed fantastically smooth for the next 3 days!!  I plan on continuing with this brand it fits perfectly into my life!

Amanda's Eyes Review, Tour and Giveaway

Think what you see is what you get? Better think again.

Waking up is the pits when you come to in a hospital with a broken arm, a colorful assortment of abrasions and contusions, and a face swathed in bandages. It’s even worse if you can’t remember what hit you.

The bad and the ugly are crime reporter Amanda “A.J.” Gregson’s business. But learning she had a ringside seat for an explosion that killed two agents of the Continental Intelligence and Investigative Service (CIIS), incinerated an entire block of warehouses, and did so much damage to her eyes they had to be surgically removed? Well, that gives the darker side of life a whole new meaning.

Haunted by elusive nightmares, A.J. waits for her transplant and struggles to remember the events leading up to the fateful night of September 4, 2075. Weeks crawl by without a glimmer, before memory finally floods back the night before surgery, every detail brutally clear.

The explosion had been the work of the Ferrymen.

“The Ferrymen. My not-so-magnificent obsession for more than a year. Only a cataclysm could have made me forget. I guess you could call them hitmen. You could also call Einstein a math whiz. Think ruthless. Think unstoppable. Think killers so proficient ‘caught the ferry’ was fast replacing ‘bought the farm’ in common usage, and you have the Ferrymen in a nutshell.”

The transplant surgery goes off without a hitch—welcome news, because A.J. is raring for a rematch with Hell’s Boatmen. But contrary to popular belief, what you see isn’t always what you get. Take her new eyes, for example. Those baby blues may look perfectly normal, but they possess a power that turns her world upside down—the power to see into the hidden dimensions of the human heart.

 When the Sight unmasks the mastermind behind the Ferrymen, the unveiling is as stunning as it is unbelievable. The revelation sets her on course for a second head-collision with evil. Will she survive the final encounter?

Buy the Book from      Barnes and Noble

~My Review~ 

I was first struck by the stunning cover, I am normally not that into covers but this one blew me away.  The eye really set the tone for the story that was to come. Kathy DiSanto takes you into the world of Amanda or A.J. Gregson.  A.J.  has been injured in an explosion that causes her to become blind.  But in this futuristic novel medical technology can fashion her a new set, a copy of her own eyes...well sort of...........   Her new eyes have some surprises and sets her on a journey to uncover many truths.  I really loved this book from the start it drew me in and I finished it in only two settings.  Ms. DiSanto gave us a wonderful book that although futuristic, it manages to be completely believable.  The characters were well rounded and developed nicely as was the storyline.  I can not wait to read more from Ms. DiSanto!
