Product Review~Pure Raspberry Ketones


 


For the past few weeks, I've been using Summit Nutrition's Pure Raspberry Ketones .  I had been researching the use of ketones in weight loss, and was impressed to find that these 100% pure raspberry ketones are pure and organic, and extracted from natural sources.  There are no additives, fillers, or artificial ingredients. 


Summit Nutrition's Pure Raspberry Ketones are made in the USA and are FDA approved cGMP (Current good manufacturing process, highest quality standard for manufacturing  supplements).  The raspberry ketones come in a rapid release capsule form, which is more effective.  These raspberry ketones are known to suppress appetite and to burn body fat by metabolism and lipolysis (breakdown in fat). 
My experience with Summit Nutrition's Pure Raspberry Ketones has been great!  I love the smell of them, and have no problem swallowing the capsules.  I noticed my appetite was curbed the first day, and I definitely had more energy.  I have had no side effects at all.  I definitely would recommend this product.

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.

Children's Book Review~If You Were Me and Lived in..Portugal


If You Were Me and Lived in...Portugal is a new addition to the popular children's series by author Carole P. Roman.  The series is an introduction to learning about other cultures, and there are many books in the series already.  What I love about this series is that it is written as if children from the other country are telling children reading the book about how they live. 

If You Were Me and Lived In...Portugal is a short softcover book targeted toward Pre-k to eight years old, but could be enjoyed by older children as well.  The illustrations are bright and draw the reader in.  The print is perfect for an elementary school child.  These are great books for homeschoolers as well, and to read as a family!

This book tells about where Portugal is, its capital city, and the names boys and girls may have there.  The history and land is also described, as well as school, food, sports, and celebrations.  I must admit, I learn at least one or two new things about each country we have 'visited' in this series. 

If You Were Me and Lived in...Portugal is available at the author's website and at Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions.

Product Review~Cleopatra's Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter



As I get older, it feels like my skin and hair are getting drier every day!  It also doesn't help that I live in a high desert.  So, I was thrilled to be able to review Cleopatra's Choice brand 100% Pure African Shea Butter, sold by Adovia Mineral Skincare. 

 
 

I received a one pound tub of Cleopatra's Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter in the ivory color (yellow is also available).  It is packaged very well, in a sturdy hard plastic recyclable tub with the label on the lid.  The smell of the Shea Butter is not unpleasant, but natural- to me it smells similar to play-doh.  The Shea Butter itself is thick, creamy, and smooth.  I have used it on everything-my lips,  hair and skin.  It is wonderful!  I used it on a curling iron burn the other day and it was so soothing. 

Cleopatra's Choice Shea Butter is the #1 rated Shea butter on the market, and is 100% natural and organic. It is made with the finest nuts hand selected from trees in Ghana.  It contains vitamins A, E, and F and does not clog pores.  Pure African Shea Butter is used for everyday skin and hair moisturizing, as well as for Eczema, Psoriasis, very dry skin, and stretch marks.

Children's Book Review~Captured on the High Seas


The Imagination Station book series is a Focus on The Family resource, published by Tyndale Publishing.  Captured on the High Seas is the 14th book in the series.  It is 130 pages long, with black and white illustrations.  At the back of the book are puzzles and questions to answer about the story. 

In Captured on the High Seas, cousins Patrick and Beth find themselves at sea on an American ship in the year 1781.  They make friends with a 15-year-old boy named James.  While at sea, they run into many problems, including a fight with the British!  They also have lots of adventure, and learn about our history. 

My kids all loved The Magic Treehouse series, so I was excited to discover the Imagination Station series as they are similar in many ways.  I love that I don't have to worry about the content my kids are reading-these are clean, wholesome stories.  Also, they appeal to boys and girls alike.  Stories like Captured on the High Seas and the entire Imagination Station series are the kind of books that catch a child's attention at such a critical stage, and makes them become lifelong readers!  I look forward to having my 11-year-old son read more of the series.  I wish Imagination Station books were around when my now adult kids were young!  They would have devoured them!

Book Review~The Flip


The Flip, by Michael Phillip Cash, is the story of a married couple who are house flippers.  Julie Evans works in the business world while her husband Brad flips houses that the two purchase together.  They purchase Hemmings House, which is an old Victorian on Long Island.  Brad feels uneasy about this flip from the beginning.  What he doesn't know is that the house is haunted by its previous residents. 

Strange things begin happening to Brad as he works on the house.  He becomes irritable and resentful, which is straining their marriage.  As he gets deeper into the house, things get even stranger. 

I don't want to give away too much of the story, so I'll stop there and tell you what I thought.  The Flip was a great story, not my usual genre, but I enjoyed it.  It was a quick read and hard to put down.  The history of the past residents was interesting to learn about.  House flipping has always intrigued me-I watch house flipping shows on television, so it was fun to read a story based on house flipping.  I've read a few books by author Michael Phillip Cash in the past, and The Flip was another great work by the author.  His books aren't too scary-just enough to give me goosebumps. 

To learn more about the author, visit his website.  The Flip is also available on Amazon.
