Motivate Your Child Action Plan Review


About Motivate Your Child Action Plan
Dr. Scott Turansky coaches parents and their children every week in his office and on the phone. The Motivate Your Child Action Plan book gives parents the tools to implement the same process to produce change in any family. Instead of relying on reward/punishment models, Motivate Your Child Action Plan helps parent use a heart-based strategy to develop a tailored plan for each unique child. Twelve audio programs can be downloaded to the device of your choice which contain guidance from Dr. Turansky and Mrs. Miller on the development of your plan. This book is about moral and spiritual development in children and is based on a study of the conscience in the Bible.

Our Experience
Raising a child comes with many challenges. This book helps craft a unique plan for each child. I knew the first plan I needed was one to help Mr. R with his resistance to doing his homework. Whenever it came time to do his homework he would make excuses, complain and refuse to try doing any of it. By crafting a plan and being able to point out his strengths I saw some improvements. It is still an ongoing process. I was pleased that last week he was able to finish his assignments with less resistance. I celebrate even small victories! I think this process will work with his brothers as well.

Skin & Nail Treatment Review


About Lady Soma Skin & Nail Treatment
The Skin & Nail Treatment is a deep moisturizer that repairs dry skin. Specifically formulated for skin and nails, it promotes a soft supple cuticle, while repairing existing hand and nail damage. Enhances nails for a shiny appearance and healthy looking cuticles. Treatment may also be used on body in areas where dry skin is present. Excellent for healing scars and stretch marks. The formula is 100% natural, paraben and chemical free. It is hypoallergenic, gentle and can be used for all skin types.


My Experience
This creme feels very nourishing. It is thicker than a regular lotion. It can be used multiple times a day, but I preferred to use it just before I went to bed. It takes about ten minutes to absorb completely. I also like that it is made in the USA. Lastly, it has a unique smell. It took me a few applications to place what I thought it smelled like. My husband thought it smelled a bit like frosting, but I would say it smells more like a freshly opened tub of Play Doh. Overall, I found this to be effective on my hand, nails and dry elbows.

Black Bear Market Hot Chocolate Review


Finally, a safer and more natural alternative to traditional hot chocolate, or hot cocoa, single serve cups has arrived. Have you read the ingredients list on the hot chocolate single serve cups that are available on the market today? Nearly all of them are filled with a vast amount of unnatural ingredients like artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose, along with many other ingredients that we can’t even pronounce, let alone tell you what they are. What you’re left with after brewing one tastes far from the flavor of natural hot cocoa, not to mention the risks to your health and well-being.
We are proud to introduce natural hot chocolate single serve cups from Black Bear Market. Made in the U.S.A. with all natural ingredients including pure cane sugar, non-fat dry milk, cocoa, whey, natural flavor, salt, locust bean gum and stevia. You can finally enjoy the convenience of hot chocolate single serve cups without all of the unnecessary and unnatural ingredients, and they taste great. They’re also fat free!
Not compatible with Keurig Vue or 2.0 systems


My Experience
The taste of Black Bear Market Hot Chocolate is wonderful! I love that it doesn't contain all those yucky artificial ingredients. This make it a perfect treat for myself and my kids. I also like that they are easy to brew in my Keurig. They suggest brewing on the 8 oz. setting, however I chose to brew it with the 10 oz. setting. I think it still tasted great. Overall, I like that they are convenient and natural.

Arts and Crafts Organizing Box Review


About the Arts and Crafts Organizing Box


This is your organizer for every nook and cranny of your craft room. Its innovative, versatile design helps to make organization chic and storage stylish. It will inspire you to try new and exciting projects while keeping your supplies organized. It is great for holding your craft or DIY supplies making organizing easy and never boring.

My Experience
This organizer is very versatile. Currently we are using it as an art box. It holds our craft sticks, glues, pom poms, googly eyes, and some beads. It works best for smaller items. The top compartment isn't large enough to hold pens or markers, which I would find a little more useful. So far I like the durability, it has held up to my 6 and 3 year old using it. The latch is secure and at the same time it is easy to open when needed. I also like that it is clear so we don't have to guess what is inside, which is especially useful if you have more than one box. I wish it was a bit larger overall to accommodate a few bigger items. Depending on your needs this could be the perfect box for your storage needs.

Vanilla Mint Deodorant Creme Review



About Vanilla Mint Deodorant Creme
Organic, chemical-free cream deodorant that really works! Organic arrowroot powder absorbs wetness naturally Organic Shea butter soothes and moisturizes dry skin. Coconut oil has natural anti-bacterial properties as well as soothes and conditions the skin. Organic peppermint and organic tea tree essential oils provide anti-bacterial and germ-killing anti-septic properties. It leaves you feeling confidently cool, fresh and clean.


My Experience
Because our skin absorbs everything we put on it, I like knowing that the ingredient are safe and natural. This deodorant is aluminum-free.It is not an antiperspirant so I would notice that my underarms were sometimes damp, so the arrowroot didn't keep me completely dry. This may be more of a problem when the weather gets even warmer. It also feels good on my skin. It goes on smooth and absorbs quickly without any residue. On the down side it comes in a tub so the only way to apply it is with your fingers, which can feel a little messy. The best part about this deodorant is the smell. The tea tree oil and peppermint are invigorating. I encourage you to take a look the the other items they offer. In the future I'd love to try the Hand Cream with Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil and Almond Oil.
