Kids Academy Giveaway!!



Kid's Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. 

The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.


Kids Academy is hosting an awesome giveaway!  Head over, download the app, and write a review in the App Store.  At the end of August, Kids Academy will randomly choose 2 lucky winners who will each win a $100 Amazon gift card!  Sweet!

CONTEST RULES:
2. Write a short honest review on the iTunes App Store. If you have already reviewed this app, simply update your review and you will be entered!

*NEW* Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash Giveaway!

The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash in exchange for a product review. All the opinions expressed in this post are my own, as always.
#GetNoticed

Treat your skin to twice the tropical refreshment with every shower. The rich lather of this body wash is infused with coconut water, known to be rich in hydrating antioxidants and electrolytes. While the scent of juicy, ripe mango leaves skin feeling fresh, clean and delectably fragrant!
The first of its kind to contain coconut water, this body wash delivers a fresh infusion of moisture,every time you shower.

I am normally a bar soap person because body wash tends to leave me feeling "filmy". I tried this tho and I must say it felt like it washed off completely leaving me with a tropical smell on my skin. (I love tropical smells!) I think I took a longer shower than normal, but who cares! It smelled good!

The super part is I have 2 coupons to give away to 2 readers for a free bottle of this Coconut Water refreshing mango body wash. Use the easy entry below to enter!

Sticker You Review and Giveaway



logo design
You can now customize your own white vinyl stickers into any shape, size, or quantity you need! Using StickerYou's Sticker Editor you can make stickers to the exact 0.1” in size. Make your stickers round, square, or contour die cut to the image to get that perfect shape to match your artwork. For business purposes, you can upload your company logo or idea and promote your brand message. 

I was sent 2 sheets of vinyl stickers to review! Here is what I chose! Since I love to bake and cook it only seemed right to have labels so that people know where the food came from.

These are the most durable stickers I have ever used! They have survived 5 washes so far and they have not faded or come off! I have taken the label off 2 jars, because I had to sterilize them, and they peeled off easy and they reattached after the jars were dry! 

Not only do they have stickers, they have lots of other products! Visit their page HERE to see everything! They are perfect for weddings, graduations, businesses and so much more!

Sticker you is offering one lucky reader 2 sheets of their own personalized vinyl stickers! 
They will send the winner a code to redeem on their site.

ENOUGH!! 10 Things we should be telling teenage girls! And a Giveaway!!!



I was sent a copy of the book, ENOUGH! 10 Things we should be telling teenage girl to facilitate an honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated in any other way.
For every young woman is beautiful.  Valuable.  And enough.

As a mom of 2 girls, 9 and 15, this book was a great read for me! Not only did it give me a hand in how to help my girls, but myself as well. I LOVED THIS BOOK! 

 EXAMPLE: Stop saying things like, “I don’t care what anyone thinks about me.”  First of all, that’s not true.  And second of all, if it is true, you need a perspective shift.  Your reputation matters – greatly.  You should care what people think of you. (This is a biggie with my 15 year old. I have told her many times this same thing and she shrugs it off. I hope when she reads this book completely she will "get it".)

 

One lucky reader will get their own copy of this wonderful book! 
The sponsor will ship the prize to the winner!

Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway.  Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.  I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.
Only one entrant per mailing address, per giveaway. If you have won the same prize on another blog, you are eligible to win it again. Winner is subject to eligibility verification.

French for Kids: On Va Jouer (Let's Play)(DVD) Review

I was sent a copy of this CD to facilitate my review. I received no other compensation.
This interactive French immersion program is non-stop language-learning fun from Whistlefritz, the producers of the award-winningFrench for Kids and Spanish for Kids series. With the help of Fritzi the mouse and a playful group of peers, Marie introduces vocabulary related to different parts of the body. And what better way to get those body parts moving than with delightful sing-along, dance-along songs, including "Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and familiar French folksongs with exciting new twists. From le chapeau (the hat) to la chaussure (the shoe), kids will love trying on their new French vocabulary for clothes in playful, interactive skits. On Va Jouer entertainingly combines colorful illustrated backgrounds, live- action, and 2-D and 3-D animation. Friendly characters and abundant humor make learning a new language as much fun as play time. Vous ĂȘtes prĂȘts? (Are you ready?) On va jouer! This DVD includes an easy-to-use translation guide for parents and teachers who are first time learners of French, as well as French subtitles. Designed for children ages 1-7On Va Jouer is fun for all ages!

Another great CD! My kids loved this one just as much as I did! They are now sprouting out french words!  That makes me even happier! I really like this series of cd's. Click on any of the links above to learn more and to order!

"The question is not if attempts will be made to limit religious freedoms, but when."
John Luther just wants to share the Gospel and enjoy a quiet life with his family. He never asked or wanted to be in the center of a political controversy, but the supporters of a new religious equality bill see his endorsement as critical. When he refuses to give his support his life is turned upside down as he becomes a fugitive trying to expose the truth. 
I have read MANY religious based books. I have read the entire Left Behind series several times over. I have also read most of the teen based books of the same name. This is different. This book takes a current look and approach to the attacks made of religious freedom today. It is a very believable scenario and the reader is sure to see the characters in their mind as they read. It is encouraging, even tho it is a book, to see a man of the bible stick to the gospel and not sell out to a political agenda. The world needs more real life people like John Luther. 
My favorite quote in the entire book is the following:
"I cannot water down the Gospel to advance anybody's political agenda."
 John Luther, ch. 4 pg. 29.
This book is based on the movie of the same name which is due to be released soon. 
I enjoyed reading this book. I read it over the course of 2 days and I look forward to viewing the movie. 
Now my favorite part! A giveaway! 
Propeller Consulting, LLC is offering one of my readers their own copy of Persecuted! 
HOW TO ENTER:
1 ENTRY - Leave a comment telling me the title of your favorite book. Don't forget to leave your email address so I can notify you if you are the winner.
1 ENTRY - Leave a comment telling me what book you are reading now, if you are reading one. If your not, tell me why in the world you are not reading this summer! Don't forget your email address so I can notify you if you are the winner.
Contest runs from 7/13 to 7/25.

Adventure Club, Electronic Dance Music

"This post was created in partnership with eAccountable. 
All opinions are my own."
Im a fan of Electronic. There I said it and now its out in the Blogsphere! Im not ashamed. I have looked up movie scores and music that have an Electronic beat quite a few times. 
 Montreal-based electronic dance music duo, Adventure Club, composed of Christian Srigley and Leighton James,has worked hard to grow their career. They take such pride in their music that they have no problem going 8 or more months between releasing each single. They use TuneCore to help with their releases and and the other aspects of getting their music out there. The reports in TuneCore are incredibly helpful to them.  They analyze which songs and which stores perform bestl.  They know what to promote more, and where.
And Im a new fan of their music! (Doesnt hurt that they are kinda cute either!)
You can read the full interview by going HERE.

Keep Momming

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”


The relationship that exists between mothers and daughters is unlike any other. It has many unique moments, memories, and yes, even challenges along the way. The relationship dynamic can be even trickier when your daughter is in those tween-age years. What can be even more difficult is when some people dismiss certain behaviors as “typical tween girl behavior” when those behaviors can be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

I’m proud to be joining forces with Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub, KeepMomming.com, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.


Don’t miss Holly’s message about the keep momming initiative http://goo.gl/3tqd5q, and be sure to check out the website at KeepMomming.com.
