Whaley's Big Adventure by Alexander Luke

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

This book is written by 5 year old Alexander Luke and presented by his award winning grandmother Carole P. Roman.

I thought this was such a cute book. This little guy had his own drawings on each page. Each page had a neat fact on all kids of whales. I learned some new things myself by reading this book. As a mom I was amazed at this 5 year olds creative thinking. This young man should be proud of his accomplishment as should his grandmother.

It was a lot of fun reading this book, knowing that a child wrote it. I will definitely be sharing this with my 6 children.

I look forward to seeing more work as his imagination and creativity matures with age.

You can purchase this book through Amazon.com for $8.99 for paperback or .99 for Kindle

HDMI 2 Pack - PREMIUM SERIES GOLD Plated with Ethernet (28 AWG!!) 4K Support - 3D Gaming Support - Xbox & PS3 Compatible

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

Product Description
The Solid Cordz 6 ft High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet (28 AWG) provides an interface between any audio/video source, such as set-top boxes, Blue-ray Disc players, DVD players, video game consoles, AV receivers and an audio and/or video monitor, such as digital television or plasma monitor, over a single cable.
This High Speed HDMI cables have been designed to meet the performance standards set by HDMI 1.4 and have passed stringent Category 2 testing. They are backward compatible to all previous versions.

The major enhancements introduced in the HDMI 1.4 specification

• HDMI® Ethernet Channel
• Audio Return Channel
• 4K Resolution Support

My husband is the computer and video game geek in this house. So most of what I say about this will be from him. We have almost all the video systems out right now. Wii, PS3, PS2, Xbox 360, Xbox, DS and then 5 computers are running in the house. We are always in need of certain cords and certain cables.

The picture that comes on after using these cables is crystal clear. Do not buy cheap cables. You get what you pay for. If you buy cheap cables you are more than likely to have to buy another set of cables a lot sooner then if you just buy the better cables. The 6ft length is great so that you are not running out of cord. He really liked this set of HDMI cords!

Great product at a great price. What more can you ask for? Ok so he gets to use all the electronic terms that I didn't understand so I had to figure things out, but in my girlie don't know how to use these, they are pretty and gold.

I think sometimes that people just look at the price. Why not look for quality?

You can purchase these through Amazon.com for $34.00

Pine Bros Softish Throat Chews- Cherry Review

Pine Bros Cough drops have been around for over 140 years!

How can you deny that the public likes these if they have been around for this long? Even Martha Stuart shows her support in this youtube video

Back when Pine Bros started making their throat chews, the packaging looked a lot different

Pine Bros throat chews come in a few different flavors. Wild Cherry, honey, licorice and come 2015 they will have lemon citrus!

My families favorite has been the wild cherry flavor. I think my families favorite part about them is that they are not harsh. Most cough drops have a harsh "bite". Most of the family says they are like a gummy bear that is good for your cough. The cherry flavor is not overpowering either. It is the perfect mix to stop your coughing. We have definitely tested that in this house. Everyone's allergies have been kickin them in the bootie. Thank goodness for Pine Bros!

Each of these flavors are gluten free

Uses: For temporary relief of minor discomfort and protection of irritated areas in sore mouth and sore throat.

Directions: Adults and children 3 years and over: dissolve 1 or 2 drops slowly in mouth. Repeat as needed. Best if not chewed.
For children under 3, ask a doctor.

Warnings: Sore Throat Warning: If sore throat is severe, persists for more than 2 days, is accompanied by fever, nausea, swelling, rash, headache, vomiting, consult a doctor promptly.

Allergen Statement: Manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts and tree nuts.

I have been able to get my kids to use these, where I can't get them to use Halls

I fully support Pine Bros! The pucks are my favorite just throw in my purse or diaper bag and off I go. Each "puck" costs around $3 and has, I'd say, around 20 drops in each container

You can purchase these

You can follow them on facebook

Garcinia Cambogia 1600 MG Upgraded Strength 100% Pure and Premium Review + Giveaway

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

Product Description

Our product contains a Strengthened 800 Mg per capsule, as opposed to most 500 Mg capsule products out there. The UPGRADED STRENGTH formula enhances the effects and accounts for reduced absorption rates when taken by various individuals.

The single biggest factor contributing to weight-loss benefits are dependent on the potency of the Garcinia Cambogia extract used. The majority of Garcinia Cambogia products either use •Low quality mass produced extracts.
Low potency 500 mg capsules that do NOT get absorbed by our bodies.
Are NOT manufactured with the Garcinia Cambogia extract used from the original clinical trials.

As recommended, our products are certified 60% HCA compared to 50% or below from other leading brands. BEWARE of companies claiming ABOVE 65% HCA. Our labs have found that production of this concentration is unreliable and expensive. Even if produced at this formulation, the effective concentration in the final product will fall short. 60% is the recommended and reliable HCA amount that each of our capsules are formulated with.

Our products are sourced and tested to make sure they are of the HIGHEST quality and bio-availability in the market.

This product is stimulant free and also promote a balanced, lighter mood by boosting Serotonin levels without giving you the jitters as some weight loss supplements do. Allergen-free, our product uses a vegetable capsule with no fillers or binders, mixing Garcinia Cambogia fruit rind with calcium and potassium for added absorption your body needs.

Made and manufactured in world class GMP certified facilities in the USA. This product is free of contaminants, fillers, binders, or toxins. Quality and safety are a primary focus for all Life & Food branded products.

I am definitely overweight. I have looked into other weight loss products. Most are focused on just the weight loss. To help with weight loss you need to stay healthy. How do you stay healthy? By taking your vitamins and by exercise, which you have to have energy for. I am a mom of 6 I still have yet to figure out how I'm not bone skinny. I run run run and do lots of household chores. But, I do not have any energy. Most days, by noon, I'm ready to take a nap. Since I do not get that privilege, I usually droop the rest of the day. I started taking the Garcinia Cambogia and I feel like I have a little more energy. Most days I can get through without feeling like it's nap time. Which is great as I'm sure my husband is tired of hearing how tired I am. Now, I'm not ready to run a marathon or anything. But it is nice to have more energy and I know that I am getting the vitamins I need.

I believe with exercise and eating right, mixed with this great supplement, I am on the right track to losing the weight I need to lose.
