Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3 Review



About Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 is a vitamin that is critical to keeping both phosphorus and calcium in balance and being used properly. Many people do not get adequate vitamin D3 because they do not spend enough time in the sun. Studies have repeatedly shown that higher levels of vitamin D are directly associated with few instances of cold, flu, and other types of infections.

My Experience
Living in the northwest I know I don't get enough sun, especially in the winter. Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3 is a great way to supplement my diet. One bottle gives me a four month supply. The softgels are easy to swallow and they don't leave any funny aftertaste. I am looking forward to having a healthy new year!

Grazia® Baking Cups Review



About Grazia® Baking Cups
  • Solid color Reusable Silicone cups
  • No muffin pan necessary; place directly on cookie sheet when baking
  • 100% Silicone Guaranteed
  • BPA Free & Dishwasher Safe
My Experience
I'm not a great cook, but I do like to bake. I like that I was able to bake all 24 on one tray. They stand up on their own so you don't need a muffin tin. As you can see, my husband was rather impatient and took one before I could get a photo. But it shows how nicely they come out of the silicone cup. They are also easy clean up. I hand washed ours, but they can also be put in the dishwasher. I also really like that they are reusable. No more buying paper wrappers. I love that they come in a set of 24 so an entire box of mix can be used at once. Overall I am very pleased with the quality and versatility of these baking cups.
I would note that I only received four different colorers not the six shown in the Amazon image.

Ballroom Dancing Mastery System Review



About Ballroom Dancing Mastery System
This 7 DVD set, progressively and step by step, takes you into the beginner's world of Ballroom Dance, in all the major social ballroom dances.

Ballroom Dancing DVD Set Covers Swing Dance and it's major patterns, Waltz Dance, Rumba Dance, and Foxtrot over 7 DVDs that take you from your very first steps.

Our Experience
My husband and I went out dancing a little before we had kids, but that was a long time ago. I was excited for us to learn Ballroom dancing. We started with the Waltz. I really liked how they gave us step by step instructions. They also show each step in different angles. The close up picture of the foot movements are very helpful. After they show how the dance should look together they give separate instructions for the man and the woman. Finally, each step builds upon the previous step resulting in a complete performance.
All of these features make it fun to learn to dance. I just wish our living room was bigger! Overall I recommend this system to anyone that would like to learn Ballroom dancing.

Bamboo Pro™ Self-Warming Knee Support Review & Giveaway




About Bamboo Pro™ Self-Warming Knee Support
Bamboo Pro™ supports contain Bamboo Charcoal Technology that offers self-warming properties. Unlike normal supports, it activates with your body heat to bring restorative warmth to your muscles, cartilage, and joints. Natural heat increases blood circulation, which in turn delivers proteins, nutrients, and oxygen to the affected area. This helps ease discomfort, relieve achy joints due to aging, enhance muscle performance, and recovery. And if you overheat, bamboo charcoal can fluctuate in temperature to provide cooling relief. Bamboo Pro™ is safe, effective, and easy to use. It can be worn all day and night for long-lasting, natural relief.

My Husbands Experience
I have been suffering with knee pain from an injury for many years and when I exercise, my knee swells and throbs. I wear a knee brace while training to prevent lateral movement, but it is tight and I have to remove it after exercise. Otherwise, when my knee swells, the brace just feels unbearably tight. Now, I get to wear the Bamboo Pro Knee Support afterward. It's soft and warm like a sock, but it's tight enough to stay in place and comfortable enough that I've worn it several hours and even slept with it on my knee. I can definitely feel the warmth, but it is never too hot and never too tight. I find it very therapeutic. I believe it is excellent for recovery and I'm very happy with its performance.

The containers are subtle and can fit in with any decor. Pumpkin Spice reminded my husband of waffles. The Autumn Leaves scent made me think of a mans aftershave. They filled our rooms with just enough fragrance to be pleasant and not overpowering. These were a perfect compliment to our Thanksgiving celebration.

Liquid Chalkers Review



About Liquid Chalkers

Liquid Chalkers contain artist quality, hyper pigmented ink that provides bright, beautiful colors with marker tips that don't dry out or crack. They were created by Louise Fox with her kids to help skyrocket their family's creativity. Liquid Chalkers are dust free when used on any non-porous surface. Some favorites are mirrors, glass, desks and metal. They should always ALWAYS test it first on a small inconspicuous section.


Our Experience
I love arts and crafts and anything that lets my kids be creative. I honestly spent an hour going around my house 'testing' these Liquid Chalkers on all different kids of surfaces. They work especially well on windows and mirrors.
We decorated our front window for Thanksgiving, and I plan on letting the boys decorate it again for each holiday. I also wrote notes on the bathroom mirrors and they work on our dry erase board as well. The clean up is wonderful, wiping it with a paper towel removed it. I do recommend using a cleaner after to get rid of any streaks.
I want to mention that they do have an odor. It's not offensive just strong. They are completely nontoxic so I don't worry. Also, we had a little accident with one of them because my son thought the cap was supposed to unscrew instead of pull off. Overall these are a lot of fun and will give myself and my kids a way to be creative.
