20" Titanium Tornado Sports Necklace Review

I recently received this sports necklace to try. I honestly think its uncomfortable, but my 7 and 14 year old really like it. I guess cause they are sports gals. It has a nice sporty look and comes in many colors. Which is a huge plus. I bought this one in pink and white and now I may have to get another for the 14 year old. So if you have a sports gal, this would be a great gift at a good price.

Bless & Give Hope!!

Went off the beaten path and found a little restaurant in a small strip mall. My hubby was nervous and had me check on yelp first. He was about to leave when I announced it had a 4 star for reviews. He said ok and we went in.

The young waitress just opened the place and looked as though the world was heavy on her shoulders. Normally I would be upset at the lack of kindness by such a waitress. But today I could see beyond my own selfishness and in to her heart.

The restaurant quickly was filling and she, being the only one there was working her tail off. Like most, no one was really concerned for her, because this was her job. They just wanted their food. I thing she had 9-10 tables she was serving at one time.

You could see the stress on her face, yet she began to smile a bit here and there. The smiles seemed strained but she was trying.

Smash, down goes a plate of food, broken plate shatters and food slides across the floor. She can't even take the time to pick it up because there are people waiting to check out and a few tables waiting for coffee refills. Even with all this she offers my husband a coffee to go!  WOW!

It is weird how burdens can sap our personalities and make us look like all hope in the world is lost. Burdened and chained people just move forward mechanically, as a means to just get the day over. Get your paycheck and move towards the next meaningless day.

My husband and kids went to the counter to pay our bill and I felt a need to clear the table as best I could, stacking plates to make her morning easier. We had already discussed blessing her with a sizable tip but money did not seem like enough.

As I pushed all the chairs in, so she would not bump into any of them, I turned to see my husband step forward from the counter and politely demand the attention of the entire restaurant. With a loud clap he began to speak loudly asking all to listen to what he had to say. I was startled as this is out of his character. He then said the waitress name and said what a hard worker she was and how we should all appreciate that about her and then began to clap and thank her. The whole restaurant was clapping for her and I was stunned, as many others in line were as well. Many were waiting to pay their bills and surely frustrated cause they, I am sure had things to do and places to go. I know we did.
The waitress as she was still checking my husband out was now crying... She was thanking him and the tears were rolling down her face.  I could now see hope behind those tear-filled eyes. And he had yet to give her the tip yet. She was just so grateful to be shown appreciation.  To have someone grateful for her hard work. Amazing what words of encouragement and acknowledgment can do for a persons soul.

My husband then handed her the tip and said God bless. I am not sure she heard him or saw the tip through her blurry eyes. She just kept saying thank you, thank you.

We walked out, me balling my eyes out and feeling more blessed then her. I was taught a lesson here. A lesson about serving the servers. Knowing their names and looking long enough to remember there faces.  Not thinking so highly of myself that because it's their job they need to treat me like a queen. Instead, choosing to lighten their load and show them heart-felt appreciation.

What an amazing feeling to be used to day to bless and give hope.

French 1 Language Learning Course Review

I received another language program to review and am again very happy I did. The Pimsleur method is the best I have seen so far on learning a language.  We have been listening to these CD's in the van when we are out and about.

Each lesson is about 30 minutes long.  It is a lot of repeating and when you have 80% of the lesson down you can move on to the next lesson, which builds on the prior lessons.  That is nice because repetition helps things to click.

I do recommend listening to the whole lesson without interruption.  It makes it easier to remember.  Now that we have reviewed all these, we need to take our time and go through them one at a time, as I am gonna get confused!!  lol

It does not appear that you are going to learn to be fluent in the language when you are done with the program but you will be able to speak and carry on a conversation with a person who speaks the language. 

You also will not be able to read or write the language as this is strictly a listening and speaking program.

My whole family is benefiting from this language program.  My 7 year old to my 13 year old are able to learn with this together.  As a homescooling mama, this is a great plus.  I would totally recommend this product.

I have to say the Spanish language is not that hard and is very fun to learn.  And it is very romantic sounding as well.  

Is is neat to hear my 7 year old speaking it and so much fun to speak to speak in-font of hubby who actually took this in high school yet we are saying things he doesn't know.  Heehee!

Shea Butter Review!!!

I received this Pure Shea Butter  to review.  They claim that it is....



Raw & Unrefined 

Highest Quality Shea Nuts Used 

100% Organic

Grade A Ivory Color Butter for Skin or Hair

Deeply Moisturizing Shea Butter from Africa


Their PRODUCT INFO: 
 

  • #1 RATED SHEA BUTTER ON THE MARKET! Natural Relief from Dry Skin, Psoriasis Dryness, Eczema and Acne. Excellent for Stretch Marks for Pregnancy or Other.
    100% Natural and Organic Pure Shea Butter - Made with Hand Selected Finest Nuts of the Shea Tree in Ghana.
    Deep Moisturizer for Skin - Contains VITAMIN A, VITAMIN E AND VITAMIN F - DOES NOT CLOG PORES - Highly Moisturizing and Long Lasting - Beneficial for Hair & Skin Health and Beauty
    Used by Top Skin Care DYI Experts for DYI Soap, DYI Lotions, Body Butter and More - Highest Quality Guaranteed
    1 POUND - Packaged in a Resealable and Recyclable Container for Easy Access and Storage
It is a large container of Shea Butter that you get, which is nice. My daughter said it is too greasy.  She really did not like it.  But it does quickly absorb and you don't need very much.  It is going to last you a really long time.  

I think it is just like any other Shea Butter I have tried if you want to know the truth.  I also know I can buy it myself for less then 6 bucks a pound and it is just as organic as this one.  

Basically, it seems that they buy it in bulk and repackage it with a high mark up!  That is fine as most don't want to pay over 60 bucks to buy it in bulk and then have to buy the containers and the labels to repackage it.  So for all their work the money they make is worth it.

So sure, I would recommend it, if you are just using it for personal use.  But if you want to use it to make your own soaps and lotions, save your self over 50% and buy it in bulk!

PIMSLEUR GERMAN LEVEL 1 Review...

I received this language program to review and am very happy I did. The Pimsleur method is the best I have seen so far on learning a language.  We have been listening to these CD's in the van when we are out and about.


Each lesson is about 30 minutes long.  It is a lot of repeating and when you have 80% of the lesson down you can move on to the next lesson, which builds on the prior lessons.  That is nice because repetition helps things to click.

I do recommend listening to the whole lesson without interruption.  It makes it easier to remember.

I have to say the German language is hard.  I actually get a sore jaw, trying to sound like the guy on the CD. So I have to try and not sound too much like him and relax.  Which is hard to do, because the German language seems a bit harsh and brash.

It does not appear that you are going to learn to be fluent in the language when you are done with the program but you will be able to speak and carry on a conversation with a person who speaks the language.

You also will not be able to read or write the language as this is strictly a listening and speaking program.

Fogless Shower Mirror Review!

I recently received The Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror to review.

It included... 
1 Stainless Steel Mirror Wall Mount
1 Stainless Steel Shaving Razor Wall Mount
1 Shatter-Proof Fogless Shower Mirror

In the description it says that to use the mirror you simply place the stainless steel wall mounts where they are most convenient in your shower, affix your shower mirror and personal razor. And you are ready to shave! 

The mirror has Anti-Fog Nanotechnology which repels fog and allows you to focus on getting a great shave. 

Pros...
It is kind of nice having a mirror in the shower. I have used it every time I have taken a shower.
I really like the included razor wall mount the most. I like having a place to put my razor instead of it lying on the shelf.
The mirror does work and I see no fog on the mirror.

Cons...
I am not really sure I needed a mirror in the shower, but I do use it.
The fogless technology is sticky and seems to gel up, so you have to rinse it off every time you are in the shower.
I would recommend this product if you are in need of a mirror in the shower. It is nice to have and the razor wall mount is my favorite part of the product, although I guess I could have just bought that separate.
