God Bless My Boo Boo ~ Book Review

FFR image for postslogo

0718030516.jpg

We enjoyed this book very much, the colors and illustrations pop from the pages! The animal parents are so cute as they interact with their children throughout the book. My children loved looking at the animals and reading how their parents helped then when they were hurt. We espeically liked the religious tone of the book, it was a nice reminder that God is there for us in times of need.

About the book from the publisher:

God Bless My Boo Boo is the perfect remedy for healing little hurts with a healthy dose of love!

Even the smallest scratches, bumps, and scrapes can sometimes be traumatic for children. When simple injuries happen, God Bless My Boo Boo is like a warm hug that helps ease the pain. Comforting, sweet, and sometimes silly rhymes guide readers through adorable scenes of baby animals and their boo boos and remind children that God is there to help. Just like Mommy Zebra makes a scraped knee better or Mommy Walrus helps tend a toothache, real moms will be able to use this book to make their little ones’ boo boos all better too!

A perfect gift for new parents and a great addition to every mom’s first-aid kit!

Book Review : Zoology for Kids: Understanding and Working with Animals

FFR image for posts

91lMXVJileL._SL1500_

 

 

An interactive introduction to working with animals! Zoology for Kids invites the next generation of zoologists to discover the animal kingdom through clear, entertaining information and anecdotes, lush color photos, hands-on activities, and peer-reviewed research. Young minds are introduced to zoology as a science by discussing animals’ forms, functions, and behaviors as well as the history behind zoos and aquariums. Related activities include baking edible animal cells, playing a dolphin-echolocation game, and practicing designing an exhibit. Young readers can peek into the world of zookeepers and aquarists, veterinarians, wildlife researchers, and conservationists as they “train” their friends, mold a tiger’s jawbone, and perform field research in their own backyard. This engaging resource provides readers with new knowledge, a healthy respect for the animal kingdom, and the idea that they can pursue animal-related careers and make a difference to preserve and protect the natural world.

Our Review:

We thought that this book was absolutely WONDERFUL! Not only does it give up close views of animals but really allows children to understand the animals and the science of zoology! We especially liked the activites that are linked throughout the book giving children engagement to what they have just read and learned. It really gets the mind processing and thinking!

THe authors Josh and Bethanie Hesterman have outdone themselves in creating this volume for today’s children!

I urge you to take an inside peek at the book on amazon. You can view a few pages from the book HERE

Moody Sisters NATURAL Skincare

FFR image for posts

moody sisters logo

 

Handmade organic and natural skin, bath, and beauty shop for your family’s moody skin. Natural and select vegan soaps, cleansers, creams for dry skin, organic shampoo, face wash for oily skin, body care, lip balms, and other beauty products to give you a clear skin and natural beauty. Each product is carefully handmade to rejuvenate and brighten the way nature intended.

Moody Sisters Skincare boasts “Real ingredients for real families: Made by real people.” I love that slogan … it makes me happy to know there is a face and a person behind the product I am buying!

While perusing their site I noticed they also go on to say, “If you are ready to rock your skin, love the planet, and save your pocket-book, you’ve come to the right place! Each product we offer comes from a need in our own family…Moody Sisters Natural Skincare is handcrafted in small batches to make the freshest natural product, safe for the whole family. No chemicals, fragrances, dyes, sulphates, or parabens ~ we’re all natural, baby!” This was such a refreshing statement to read! It made me feel like the product was formulated just for me and my family…as if Moody Sisters had an insight to the products that I have wanted for ages!

We were privileged to review 3 skincare products from the Moody sisters line of Natural skincare! This was a treat! The Moody Sisters skin care line has top quality natural skincare options for everyone! My daughter and I were able to use and test all the products that Moody Sisters sent our way and we both had positive results and thoughts to send your way!

20150203_022719 (1)

The first product we tried was the FOAMING FACE WASH.

20150203_022647 (1)

This is a great product… it has a nice foamy lather to effectively fight dirt! The face wash emits a nice minty scent while cleansing, tightening pores, and fighting blemishes. Upon use I loved the fact that the product made my face feel clean and refreshed without drying out my skin. This face wash is great because it is recommended for all skin types … normal, oily, or combination. This was great for my family because both my daughter and myself could use the product on our different skin types. My skin tends to be normal to combination and hers more combination. We both loved the product and how it made our skin feel. It was an awesome replacement to our normal face wash and actually performed better, balancing out our skin!

The next product we tried was the LIGHTWEIGHT MOISTURIZER.

 

20150203_022659 (1)

This too was a wonderful product. As advertized it had a nice lightweight feel to moisturize the skin. I don’t know about you but I like a nice light moisturizer that is not too heavy on my face. The lightweight formula makes it great for both day or night use! The moisturizer is aloe based and softens the skin without leaving a greasy feel. I like that this moisturizer is oil-free, as anything with added oils tends to clog my pores or cause a breakout… this was nice to know that I would not have to worry about any aftermath that may come with using a new moisturizer!

The last product we tried was the BLEMISH SERUM.

20150203_022707

I can say that I honestly did not use this product within the review time frame, as I had no blemished to eradicate. However, my daughter did use the product with great success. She stated that the product was easy to use and felt nice on the skin. It has a pleasant scent, reminiscent of an essential oil blend. We did notice a difference in her overall skin after using the blemish serum. The areas that has a breakout were diminished and her skin was noticeably clearer after a week or so of use.

Overall, these were great products. We were so pleased that these were natural organic products! It was also very refreshing that the products were effective and pleasant to use, with no side effects. The products lived up to the company’s claims, nice!

As an extra perk…Moody Sisters is offering an EXCLUSIVE Coupon for NEW FANS! 10% off your next order.

Bella Organics

FFR image for posts

Keeping my family healthy is very important to me in many aspects.  My husband and children have very sensitive skin so I have to be careful what I buy.  Whenever possible I try to find natural and organic products for them.  I find that organic products are worth the investment for the better of my family.

Bella Organics is a great company that has created an entire line of skincare products that are naturally organic. They contain no synthetic chemicals or toxic ingredients.  They use only the best plant-based essential oils and extracts and their packaging is 100% recyclable.  Bella Organics offers an array of products from lip balm, to body scrub, to deodorant, to baby items.  I had the pleasure of trying Bella Organics Raspberry Lip Balm and Iced Lemonade Deoderant Crème.

IMG_3960

First of all, I love that I can read all of the ingredients in the Raspberry Lip Balm; shea butter, almond oil, beeswax, coconut oil, raspberry extract, and stevia.  It goes on smooth and made my lips feel silky.  I was surprised that the lip balm lasted a couple of hours before needing to reapply.  Their lip balms are available in a variety of flavors including mint, pina colada, and vanilla tangerine.

IMG_3961

I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Iced Lemonade deodorant crème. Upon opening, I was immediately in love with the aroma. It instantly reminded of summer.  I have never tried organic deodorant and never realized how toxic anti-perspirants are to the body.  Bella Organics deodorant crèmes work simply by fighting bacteria and providing a pleasant scent to the underarms.

IMG_3962

Overall, I would highly recommend Bella Organics. With so many organic skincare products to choose from, they have a product for everyone in the family.

Veggie-Go’s

FFR image for posts

My kids eat very few vegetables. I either have to add a lot of cheese to mask the taste, or puree vegetables and sneak them into casseroles.  Even then, my kids notice them.  I have yet to find a way for them to eat vegetables willingly.  That is until they tried Veggie-Go’s.

IMG_3798

Veggie-Go’s are the original fruit AND veggie strip.  These amazing strips provide half a serving of fruit and half a serving of vegetables.  They are also GMO free, organic, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, vegan, and have no added sugar.  The best part of all, they taste delicious! My kids had no idea they were eating vegetables or fruit, just a tasty snack.  They even asked for more!

IMG_3799

Veggie-Go’s come in some really unique varieties including Mountain Berry Spinach, Carrot Ginger, Cinnamon Spiced Beet, TropiKale, and Sweet Potato Pie.  My son said his favorite one was the Mountain Berry Spinach.  There is no way he would eat another one if I told him it was made with spinach and sweet potatoes!  Veggie-Go’s are individually wrapped so they are great for on the go.  They are available at your local Whole Foods as well as online at

www.nakededgesnacks.com

I highly recommend them, and definitely plan on buying more of them.
