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.

Spanish 1 Language Learning Course Review

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.

The Amazing Miracle Cleanse Discount CODE Coupon & Review!!

I recently received The Amazing Miracle Cleanse, A Premier Colon Cleanse and Detox Plus Weight Loss to try out and review.

They say the product is an All Natural, Safe ,Gentle , Colon Health and Detoxification Program and I agree. Right away I looked at the ingredients and was very impressed. It was full of great herbs. I am not personally using it because I am nursing but my husband is using it and has been on it for 8 days.

In just 3 days I noticed he had lost weight and that is not really why I wanted him on it. It was an added benefit to getting gunk out of his system.

They say 1 - 2 Caps a Day for 2 Weeks. I choose to put him on just one cap a day for 15 days. That seems to be enough for him . One bottle contains 30 capsules. So if you take just one a day then it will last much longer. Plus I think 2 a day would be a bit much. Although it is gentle I think he would be going to the bathroom a little too much for a work day.

Once he is done with the 15 day cleanse he will only take it once every other month. That is a great deal compared to other cleanses out there. And yes, when I am done nursing I will be buying it to try on myself. I do recommend this product.

I wish they would come out with a formula for children. Something chewable. I think one of my kids would greatly benefit or all of them for that matter. I really like the fact that it has Acidophilus in it too. This is the good bacteria to help in the intestines.

I have also noticed that my husbands face is less bloated. I have not noticed and increase in energy however. Perhaps that will come in a few days, or maybe he needed the 2 a day for that to happen. I am unsure.

I do wish it came with a eating and supplement plan, which it does not. I did end up purchasing some vitamins for him to take with it and he just started those 3 days ago. So maybe I will notice more energy with those added on to the program. All in all I am happy with this item and will use it myself someday as well.

Right now you can get $10.00 off this product with coupon code TOMOSON5  just click here to check it out!  And other then getting this product free to try and review, I do not get anything for you buying it.

Book Review! "Abigail And The Jungle Adventure"

Children books : Abigail and the Jungle Adventure: (Animal Habitats) (Preschool Books) (values book) (Explore the World kids book collection) (Bedtime ... Books for Early / Beginner Readers 4)This book has magic in it and for that reason I gave it low marks.  I do love the illustrations but would not read this to my kids.  The concept of a girls imagination taking her into the jungle is phenomenal.  I just prefer to keep it imagination and not mystical or magical.  I think that confuses kids.  I never want them to think God is fantasy, so I try to stay away from books that promote fantasy and magic.  

Also I did not care for the gender roll reversal with the grandpa cooking and the grandma sitting on her couch reading the paper.  I want my girls to enjoy being women and help meets, not to be confused by children's books that say it is OK for rolls to reversed.  God created them as who they are and they should love and enjoy that.  Yes, I guess I am old fashioned for sure but this is my honest review.

Here is a link for the book that I so do not recommend. I was given it free to read and review, so that is why I am putting in the link.  Click here!

My reading apps.

It is a new world today.  There are so many ways we can help our kids with reading.  Since this is reading day here, I wanted to show you what I have on our iPhone, iPad & iPod for our kids to help with reading.

My kids favorite is Reading Raven.  If I remember right you do have to pay for this, but it is cheaper then you think and way worth it.  I don't have the links so you will have to search in your iTunes account.

The next is Marbleminds Phonics.  This is nice as they have games like memory, where you have to match the letters to the pictures.

Speech With Milo Sequencing is great!  Your kids will learn how to put stories together by putting pictures in the right order.

Montessori Crosswords is so good too.  It teaches them to here the sounds and spell the words.  Best part is they can do this at a very young age.

So there is a start for you.  I am pretty sure I paid for all of them, but it was not much and so worth it. If they are going to play on the Apples then they better at least be learning!
