http://alexas-angels.com/product-category/collection/positivity/?orderby=price


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


Product History
This product was developed after a devastating tornado hit the community of Windsor, CO, where Alexa's Angels headquarters. The bracelet sets were an immediate hit, serving as a way to keep a positive attitude and to share hope with others in the midst of tragedy. Their popularity has grown as customers find inspiration in the product and use it as a way to connect with others during times of tragedy and also for joyful occasions like weddings and family reunions. They make perfect gifts for friends, family and colleagues of all ages, bringing people together around a mutual desire to stay positive.

Product Details
Positivity Bracelets are a reminder that "attitude is a choice and positivity is contagious!" Packaged as a set of 3 bracelets, the carding explains their pass-it-on concept: "Keep one bracelet for yourself and share the others with loved ones, friends, or even strangers. Be positive! Pass it on and have fun!" Crafted of rhodium and nylon, they are stretch fit, one-size-fits-all bracelets.

The bracelet sets come in black, light pink, 6 bright colors, and two-toned school/team colors too! They are a great way to build team spirit and support a good cause.


This is such a cute idea! I loved trying to figure out which of my friends needed an uplifting item like this. Here we are both wearing our bracelets.


Each set also comes with a cute tag that has instructions on what to do and how the bracelets work


My bracelets came beautifully boxed and wrapped. Then inside the box was a goldish colored mesh satchel that held the bracelets.



Each set of 3 positivity bracelets is $11.99 There are so many colors to choose from


Alexa's Angels even has cancer support bracelets! This type of item I hold dear to my heart as so many friends and family have died of cancer.


$9.99 each

Sabi Tripod Pill Holder Review


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


I actually think this might be my daughters favorite pill holder for her purse. This Tripod pill holder fits perfect in the purse of backpack for easy carrying of your daily pills. My daughter takes around 6-9 pills a day so this is perfect for her. She also has written on all the "bubbles" what pills are in each.


It is a nice textured plastic with see through lids. Well they are slightly milky looking but you can see the contents inside, if needed. I recommend this product just for the sheer fact that is the most portable for daily use!


Product Description
The TRIPOD pill box is a unique roll-open pill organizer designed to hold fish oil pills and other large pills, vitamins and supplements. Secured by an extra-strong closure, the TRIPOD pill box rolls open to expose three large compartments each covered by a hinged, clip-closed lid.
While pill box compartments are designed to hold large supplements, they also come in handy for storing objects of all shapes and sizes, from tweezers, tampons, rolls of mints, and packages of gum to glucose tablets, makeup, lip balm, eyeglass repair kit, and sewing kit – any and all small necessities you may need to take with you on the go.
The TRIPOD pill box is covered in soft, supple rubber and is nice to the touch. It is easy to open and close. It fits nicely into purse backpack, or can be toted in place of a bag.

Chest By The Bay Book Review


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


Product Description
Chest by the Bay is the first book from Tessa Beauchat. Tessa is currently 12. She is in the 7th Grade at Saint Francis Xavier School in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Chest by the Bay grew out of poetry project Tessa did in the 4th grade. Tessa has a passion for both writing and reading. Her favorite authors are Veronica Roth and Rick Riordan.

Tessa participates in the Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University. She also has a passion for volleyball. This season Tessa is playing for the Revolution Volleyball Club of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. She is a defensive specialist and plays the position of libero.

On Sanibel her favorite thing to do is bike to Poco Loco and be the first customer of the day.

The book is available via Kindle or in print from Amazon

Visit her on the web at www.bestsinceslicedbread.com

My daughters love non traditional books. This one is kinda neat. It has mystery, with a small mix of sci-fi for kids. This girl is led to an old amusement park by a raven. And what happens next? Go check out the book. This sweet little 12 year old, that wrote this book, did a great job! Chest by the Bay is also written in Dr. Seuss rhyme. In my opinion this book would be great for kids learning to read up to age 10.

Check out this book on Amazon at:
http://www.amazon.com/CHEST-BAY-Tessa-N-Beauchat-ebook/dp/B00IP8QWJ2/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1396134538&sr=1-1&keywords=chest+by+the+bay

$3.99 for the Kindle edition and $16.23 for the paperback edition.

I hope to see this girl write again!

A favorite prank. Simply inflate and wait for the laughs to begin. Place on a chair and wait for an unsuspecting victim to sit down. When sat upon the whoopee cushion will force air through a narrow opening causing it vibrate and make a sound.
