La Beauté Pure Vitamin C Serum Review

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

Here is some information about La Beauté Pure Vitamin C Serum:
  • Dr. Oz and leading plastic surgeons endorse Vitamin C for anti-aging, anti-wrinkles, and for taking decades off your face.
  • Safer than a chemical peel and cheaper than a facelift. Vitamin C can give similar results.
  • Applying vitamin C to the skin is up to 20 times more effective than taking it orally.
  • Highest concentration of Vitamin C available at approximately 20%. If we added more the product would be runny and not absorb as well.
  • No parabens. No chemicals. No preservatives. No Formalin. No Formaldehyde. No Phthalates. No Petro-chemicals No GMO. No Triclosan. No Fragrance. No Colors. Not tested on animals. No wrinkles. No worries.
This shipped quickly and was packaged well.
I like how it absorbs quickly and doesn't sit on top of the skin. Also, a little will go a long way.
I was very pleased that it doesn't have a strong smell. I think it would be good for most people even someone with sensitive skin.

You can purchase it on Amazon here.

WooBamboo Eco Toothbrush Review

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

 WooBamboo makes amazing bamboo toothbrushes! What makes them so amazing? First, they are eco-friendly. The bamboo handle will completely decompose compared to a regular plastic toothbrush that will sit in a landfill forever. The bristles are also recyclable. So much better than a regular toothbrush.

Second, because bamboo is naturally anti-micorbial I worry less about the icky things that could be growing on my toothbrush. The bamboo is also organically grown and sustainably harvested.

The biggest difference I noticed between my WooBamboo toothbrush and other brushes is how light the WooBamboo brush is. It's a great reminder for me to be gentle while brushing! They also look cool in case you like to show off to your friends.

They offer two different handle designs - standard and slim. The slim one is my favorite. Lastly, I'm SO happy to see that they are also going to be making a child's size brush that will be available in early 2014. I look forward to getting them for all three boys!

Hoffman Academy Online Piano Lessons Review & Giveaway

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

Hoffman Academy offers online piano lessons. I love that the first lesson creates success right away! By the end you are playing your first song. I really appreciate all the information that they have on the website too. Mr. O is 7 and I feel he is at the perfect age to start learning the piano. The Parent's guide has an emphasis on daily consistency. While we did miss a few days over the holidays we retuned to the lessons easily. We didn't 'make up' for our missed time, just jumped right back in. I didn't want to make Mr. O feel overwhelmed. Mr. R showed some interest, but I think I'll wait until he is 5 to start the lessons. Hoffman Academy has great answers to knowing when your child might be ready to begin lessons.

The theory and activity pages are a wonderful way to supplement the online lessons. They are fun and easy to use. I hope you take a moment to visit Hoffman Academy and see for yourself all the information and lessons they have.

Here is what is included in the Piano Unit 1:
Music Theory Worksheets & Activity Pages (36 PDF pages)
Song Sheets with Practice Instructions (5 PDF pages)
Piano Listening CD MP3s
Practice CD MP3s
Parent's Guide

You can connect with Hoffman Academy here:



Hoffman Academy has generously offered one of my readers the Complete Materials for Piano Unit 1.

Update: Looks like the Tomoson entry form isn't working. Please post a comment saying some thing you learned after visiting the Hoffman Academy website. A winner will be chosen on 1/5.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

MORE Organization
MORE Creativity
MORE Confidence
MORE Patience
MORE Focus
MORE Smiles

What do you want to have MORE of this year?
