Product Review - Number One Nutrition Thyroid Support, 60 count from Number One Nutrition

Product:  Number One Nutrition Thyroid Support, 60 count from Number One Nutrition

Review:  When you open the bottle you will smell the ingredients this pill has - they smell hot - cayenne pepper - also loads of ingredients that will help your thyroid and your metabolism increase. I am in my mid 40's and have 5 children - my mother's thyroid stopped working about 20 years ago and she went a bit crazy before they caught that it was not working any longer - I fear that will happen to me, since her sister also has the same issue - well I have been taking individual supplements of Selenium, Folic Acid, Iodine, Zinc and Vit B12 to try and keep my thyroid going as long as possible - the thyroid regulates so much that you want it working and the medication to replace it just isn't as good as the real thing.

So when this product was offered to me to try I jumped on it - a pill with all the things I was taking separate plus other ingredients that will help my thyroid go longer and go better - as we age our metabolism drops and then the pounds start to pile on - well that is crap - we have to do somethings about that - exercise - lean muscle building and eating right sure help - but the older we get the less and less we can eat without it showing on our hips and faces - so with this pill I think that the thyroid will get a boost and help to keep going without burning out and my metabolism with get a boost so I feel more energetic and alive and dead tired all the time.

The 1st few times I took this pill I burped up hot pepper taste and it was hot - so I now take it with food and that helps keep it down where it belongs -

Good ingredients that are proven to give you a boost in thyroid and metabolism - are you tired? are you sore? give this pill a try and see if you feel better shortly -

Product Review - Rejuve Naturals Virgin Argan Oil -

Review:   I have been using this product on my hair and my skin - the night before I wash my hair I put this oil though my hair from scalp to ends - I then rub the oil into my arms and hands before going to bed - my skin is softer and feeling better to touch without the hang nails I usually get from dry cuticles - My hair is super soft and manageable also and it shines more with this routine -

I also use the oil in small amounts to help me style my curls - I have curly hair and a few drops of this oil rubber into my hands and then scrunched into my curls gives them a bigger rounder less frizzy look - healthy looking - feeling - hair that is manageable and beautiful to see and touch. People have mentioned how healthy my hair looks and my hairstylist mentioned how healthy it feels as she was cutting my hair the other day - I told her what I was doing and she told me to keep it up.

I love this oil and will be ordering more as I use this bottle - a nice big bottle 4 ounces so it will last awhile -

It is amazingly fresh, and produced using a cold-press extraction method. It has a naturally light earthy smell. Often times a lower quality or older less fresh oil will have a stronger pungent smell. Many producers add chemicals to remove the unpleasant smell from their poor quality, older oil. This damages the oil and it is no longer 'pure' or 'organic'. Ours is filtered with the latest scientific techniques without chemicals to reduce the natural smell without losing any of the Argan Oils natural properties. This in turn creates an oil that is remarkably lightweight and is much more easily absorbed.

Book Review - The Truth and Other Lies - Sascha Arango


Title: The Truth and Other Lies
Author: Sascha Arango

Review: The keystone to this book is being on the side of the anti-hero,
Henry Hayden. Everything seems to be going his way until it suddenly isn’t;
and instead of trying to repair any damage he decides to double down on his
bad behavior.

As he keeps riding his bets, a wide path of lies and death is left in his
wake.  I like the portrait of a human unencumbered by any sense of morals
or general decency.  He is totally motivated about what is best for him in
the moment, nothing else. By all rights the reader should despise Henry,
unless they are a sociopath themselves.

I came away with ambivalent feelings about the hero.  I should have hated
him for such violent hedonistic behavior but I didn’t.  I didn’t like him
either.  On the larger book I felt that way about all the characters,
neither here or there on them.  They die or they live; things work out for
them or they don’t.  I just didn’t care. That said, it is a very talented
author that can get you to think nothing about Henry.

This was a fairly short book that could have done with an extra 50 pages of
character development.  A good story without any character I could root
for. I believe the characters would play well on the screen, where the
nonverbal communication would be screaming.

Publisher: Atria Books
ISBN: 978-1-4767-9555-3
Copyright: 2015
Pages: 241
Quick Review: 3.5 stars out of 5
Why I Read It: I love European crime fiction.
Where I Obtained the Book: Sent to me by the publisher for review.

Synopsis: On the surface, Henry Hayden seems like someone you could like,
or even admire. A famous bestselling author who appears a modest everyman.
A loving, devoted husband even though he could have any woman he desires. A
generous friend and coworker. But Henry Hayden is a construction, a mask.
His past is a secret, his methods more so. No one besides him and his wife
know that she is the actual writer of the novels that made him famous.

For most of Henry’s life, it hasn’t been a problem. But when his
hidden-in-plain-sight mistress becomes pregnant and his carefully
constructed facade is about to crumble, he tries to find a permanent
solution, only to make a terrible mistake.

Now not only are the police after Henry, but his past—which he has
painstakingly kept hidden—threatens to catch up with him as well. Henry is
an ingenious man and he works out an ingenious plan. He weaves lies,
truths, and half-truths into a story that might help him survive. But bit
by bit the noose still tightens.

Smart, sardonic, and compulsively readable, here is the story of a man
whose cunning allows him to evade the consequences of his every action,
even when he’s standing on the edge of the abyss.

Author Biography: Sascha Arango was born in Berlin in 1959 and is one of
Germany’s most prominent screenplay writers. He has also authored audio
plays and stage plays and has been awarded several prizes, including the
Grimme Prize twice. The Truth and Other Lies is his first novel.

Product Review - Imikas Pencil Sharpener -

Review:    Small - easy to use pencil sharpener - the plug is a USB port also so you can plug this item into your computer or into the wall with the adaptor that comes with the sharpener.  You can use the plug or you can use batteries instead if you have this somewhere nowhere near an outlet.

It sharpened the pencils I tried and it gave them a nice sharp point - also the pencil sharpener is adjustable so you can get the pencil point you are looking for.  I will be using this in my classroom so it will get a major workout in a few months - it will be interesting to see how it holds up to all the pencils the kids push in to sharpen.   But for me it is working well right now - 

Easy peasy and small to boot - I cleaned out the shavings and it popped off and back on again so no worries there.  This is a good pencil sharpener and I hope it lasts -

Product Review - Kuuk Silicone Ice Cube Tray (Twin Pack)

Review: Well we needed these since we do not have an ice maker in our frig - up until this week when our frig died and we needed to buy a new one so now we have an ice maker but these will make cubes out of anything you can freeze - the baby shower with the plastic babies frozen in the ice until you can melt it and win the game?  An idea for these - also freeze eggs for perfect one egg item when you are out of eggs in the frig.

They are easy to use and boom out of the tray for perfect ice and what is better is that they are made of think silicone so you can pick them up full without worry of then drooping or needing a tray to carry them to the frig.

Great ice cube trays for some many items - candy molds - I love silicone and use it whenever I can - so easy to care for and lasts forever.

I am a blogger and received this item for an honest review.

Description:  It's easy to get the perfect ice cube every time with our Kuuk silicone ice cube tray. This easy to use tray is a quick and simple way to create perfectly square 1-inch ice cubes whenever you need them.

Safe to use Silicone
Unlike plastic ice cube trays, which may contain harmful chemicals, ours are made with 100% BPA free silicone. This makes them safer to use for your family, so you can cool them down and heat them up without concerns about leeching chemicals and other substances.

Perfectly Formed Ice Cubes

The unique molded shape of these trays creates perfectly square cubes every time. Just add water, place in the freezer, and take them out when your ice is done. And because silicone is naturally pliable, the cubes are easier to remove than with standard trays, which can be inconvenient to use. Just pop the cubes up and enjoy.

Ideal for Candy and other Foods
These trays aren't just suitable for making ice. You can easily add your own chopped herbs and spices, sauces, baby food, and juices for perfectly portioned cubes when you need them. Just thaw before feeding, or add them to your favourite recipes during cooking. They also make ideal candy moulds for perfectly shaped chocolate bars and more.

Low Maintenance
These silicone ice cube trays are dishwasher safe, so you can easily use them again and again. Just throw them onto the top rack and wash dishes as usual.

Stylish Colours
This two-pack of ice cube trays comes with one blue and one green tray for a stylish and festive look.

Product Review - Best Organic Age Defy Serum - Joyal Beauty

Review:    I have been using this for a few weeks and I like the slightly tan thicker serum that you pump out of this bottle - it spreads evenly and as I message it into my skin it absorbs well,  The smell is hardly noticeable and is pleasant when you do notice it.  It will not run through your fingers like some thinner serums will so you can get every drop into your skin to see the improvements.

I rub this between my hands and then over my face, neck and down my chest - I keep massaging until it is absorbed and then go on with a moisturizer and makeup.  I felt it working around my eyes and one day I must have gotten more sun then I thought because it burned slightly around my eye lids which I may not have covered as well with sun block.  So a bit tingly for sure but not back enough to wash it off.

Aging happens to us all even when we think it won't so get prepared and take care of your skin now to keep it at bay as long as possible.

1. Apply small amount of serum to your face once daily at night after cleansing and toning. 2. When applying the serum, you may slightly massage your face using circular motion with fingers for 1-3 minutes for better results. Avoid eye area. You self facial massage should be especially soft and gentle around your eyes. The act of massaging will stimulate blood circulation and new cell generation and also the nutrition ingredients present in the serum will be able to penetrate deeper inside the skin. 3. Then follow with moisturizer: ---If your skin type is oil, after applying serum, please follow with light and non-greasy non-comedogenic moisturizer; Some people with oily skin type might find applying this serum without moisturizer makes them feel comfortable, but we still suggest you use water-based light moisturizer after serum to lock the moisture. ---If your skin type is normal, just follow with your favorite moisturizer. ---If your skin type is dry, after applying serum, following with intensive oil-based moisturizer is suitable. 4. Our Ultimate Brightening Anti-Aging Serum can be used under any moisturizing cream,sunscreen and makeup. It can be mixed used with our other organic serums such as Joyal Beauty Super Brightening Vitamin C Serum. Because this serum helps to eliminate dead skin cells in order to get a smooth and fresh complexion back, it is even more important therefore to protect against the sun. Please do not forget to apply sunscreen to avoid sun damage at day time, even on cloudy days. At night time, applying the serum and moisturizer before bedtime and getting enough beauty sleep are very important since skin renews itself while you sleep. Relax your mind and body before bedtime. Many skin problems are actually caused by spiritual pressure. Meditation is very good for our skin. Visualize beautiful, healthy skin as you fall asleep and your body will go in that direction.

Book Review - Counterfeit Conspiracies - Ritter Ames

Title:  Counterfeit Conspiracies

Author:  Ritter Ames

Review:  This is the second book by Ritter Ames that I have read.  Both books were gifts from my daughter for Mother’s day and a very enjoyable gift they were.

This book is totally different than the last book I read by this author.  That books was called Organized for Murder and was the complete opposite from this one that I find very interesting.  Most authors that I read seem to stick to one theme, lots of action and thrillers or softer stories about families and friends and small towns.  Ritter has taken two stories from “different parts of the world” and yet both stories are good and fun fast reads!

Counterfeit Conspiracies is book 1 of this series and introduces a character by the name of Laurel.  Laurel is a tall lanky blond beauty that “grew up in wealth and society until her grandfather died and her father gambled away the family fortune, now with more pedigree than trust fund she is the premier art recovery expert for museums that need to stay one step ahead of international thieves.”

Of course there is a hint of love in the offing, but the book is free of any entanglement's and a very clean read which, I for one, appreciate.

This is a good read and a good mystery full of fun and intrigue!!  I give this book three stars!

Thanks Eileen for this review.

Synopsis:  Laurel Beacham grew up in wealth and society—until her grandfather died and her father gambled away the family fortune. Now with more pedigree than trust fund, she is the premier art recovery expert for museums that need to stay one step ahead of international thieves. Her latest assignment pits her against a mystery man, Jack Hawkes, who is not only her equal with blue bloods, but also seems to know where all the bodies are buried. Suddenly Laurel is racing against time to find a priceless art object before the enemy does, locate a missing art world compatriot with crucial information, and decide whether or not she wants to disentangle herself from this new male nemesis, Jack, who seems to know too much about her and her business.

Product Review - Megaphone by Croove -

Review:  Love Love Love this fun megaphone - we have played with it in the house with the kids and the dogs and I tell you it is funny to use it to wake up a kid that refuses to get out of bed with the normal knock on the door - funny stuff - the dogs love to howl along with the megaphone and the 2 modes are fun to use also.

My kids are dying to take it to a game and yell and cheer with the crowd, I plan on using it at back to school day with students who are loud in the hallway - it will be a great item to have for quieting down the drone of teenagers -

Love this fun - inexpensive megaphone that will get plenty of use in our home - calling the kids home for dinner from the park - yelling at the barking dog next door - cheering the home team on - cheering the runners in track and cross country - playing games with the family - getting attention at a big outdoor park or pool - and just for the heck of it - Fun stuff this megaphone is!!!

Book Tour Review - TLC Tours - To Dwell in Darkness - Deborah Crombie


Title: To Dwell in Darkness

Author: Deborah Crombie

Review: A solid mystery with plenty of twists to keep the reader guessing.
The crime is witnessed by a police officer and caught partially on video
tape, but initially nobody is quite sure what has happened or who the
victim is.

In true police procedural style, methodically following each small clue
from insight to insight, the case opens up to encompass a much larger and
surprising conspiracy.  It also demonstrates the simple choices of regular
people can lead to complex results.

The B plot involves the protagonist’s recent transfer and subsequent
blending issues with his new team.  As he deals with the inherent mistrust
among his new colleagues as the try to get along, he finds himself calling
on his past friends for help.  It shows how prejudging others can really
screw things up; especially since history has taught us we are rarely
correct in our assessments.  As a sometimes reader of this series, I did
find the B plot a little hard to follow because I am not up to date with
the multi-book character development.

A good mystery best served when read in series with the other books by this

Recently transferred to the London borough of Camden from Scotland Yard
headquarters, Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and his new murder
investigation team are called to a deadly bombing at historic St. Pancras
Station. By fortunate coincidence, Melody Talbot, Gemma s trusted
colleague, witnesses the explosion. The victim was taking part in an
organized protest, yet the other group members swear the young man only
meant to set off a smoke bomb. As Kincaid begins to gather the facts, he
finds every piece of the puzzle yields an unexpected pattern, including the
disappearance of a mysterious bystander.

The bombing isn t the only mystery troubling Kincaid. He s still
questioning the reasons behind his transfer, and when his former boss who s
been avoiding him is attacked, those suspicions deepen. With the help of
his former sergeant, Doug Cullen, Melody Talbot, and Gemma, Kincaid begins
to untangle the truth. But what he discovers will leave him questioning his

just how vulnerable his precious family is.
