I am a huge fan of the Heroes of the City app and tv show that have been out a while now and have been using it with my son who is now 5 years old. This app is fun and interactive too and I feel safe allowing my son to use it without supervision. It teaches them about listening to warnings, being kind, sharing and ofcourse watching out for each other. This is a great app geared towards kids 2-6 years. I am pleased to know that they have now introduced their Heroes of the City Baby App.

This Heroes of the City Baby App is suitable for kids 0-2+ years old and is cleverly designed for it to be just as interactive, educational and inspiring for the young ones. Best thing is that it is completely FREE.

The app includes:
• 3 animated short movies (Language: English and Swedish )
Main Menu

One Movie - About Fiona about 1:30min
The movies are not long (max 1:38min) which is great because some kids that young do have a short attention span and that way they are still interested in watching it over and over again.

• Music Panel with two different themes
My daughter who is 18 months love this panel. Everything on the screen can be interacted with and her favorite is the windshield wipers (she finds it to be very funny)

• Color and shape game
It is very simple for them to use and it changes the shapes and the colors often so that they learn the shape and colors rather than remembering what the game does.

• Magic coloring game
Artwork compliments of my daughter. They are able to draw on this screen using their fingers and it changes color every time they raise their finger away. This encourages them to want to do more because of the expectation of  the change in color.

• Balloon Game

This is my daughters favorite after the music panel. She enjoys popping the balloons and watching her gain different color stars.

This app is completely free, so there is no need for any in app purchases or in app advertising which makes this completely safe for your young ones. Here is a video about the Heroes of the City Baby App:

After viewing this video I am certain that you are not disappointed but rather inspired to get the app. Get it here on both the App Store and Google Play.  Learn more about Heroes of the City on the YouTube Channel also. Enjoy!!

UNI 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil Review

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

Argan Oil is one of my favorite oils to use in my hair because of all the benefits that it has. My problem with the oil is not even the oil itself but the companies that promote it. I want to see that my oil only contains that - OIL - and that is all I need. They are quick to promote argan oil treatments and products but the ingredients contain everything that is incomprehensible to me.

UNI 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil is just what I need and nothing more. There are so many benefits that are available when using their argan oil. From shiny hair, healthier skin and stronger nails. Argan oil contains Vitamin E, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and many more that aid in so many ways that are only beneficial to use.
During my time using their Argan Oil; I used it mainly in my hair. I would put it in my hair at nights so that oil will absorb all the nutrients it has. The best thing about it is that it doesnt take much to gain its full value. It treats dry and itchy scalp plus promotes growth and stops hair thinning. One thing though, the smell isnt the best but you could add some almond oil to whatever mixture you make to help with a better aroma.

It comes with the perfect dropper with the pointy end that makes application to whether it is to the hair, skin or nails.

Follow those directions for best results:
Apply drops to the palm of your hand. Rub together to warm up the oil. Apply to area of hair, body, and/or skin. Hair must be damp when applying the oil. When applying to hair: Apply several drops of oil into the palm of your hand and rub them together to warm the oil. Massage gently into your scalp and take care to cover your hair from roots to ends. Cover your hair with a plastic wrap or towel. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour, than wash it out. For full benefit, you can also leave it on overnight.

You can purchase it on Amazon for only $13.95 with Free Shipping on orders over $35.00.

Whole Latte Love Ebook

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I love a book that keeps me interested in what the next page entails. In this contemporary romance book from my reading I gathered that author Rachelle Ayala draws on how another person can impact positivity into another persons life if we allow it.

We meet Carina Chen who is a career driven individual who has moved out to Berkeley, CA from Philadelphia to intern at Mogul Bank for the summer. While debating on finding a place to stay that is convenient and cheap she meets Dylan Jewell. Dylan is a charming, carefree and rockstar who has girls swooning over him day in and night out.

After becoming roommates, they realize they are more a like but yet so different in many ways. Carina is the nerdy Asian who isnt all over Dylan but secretly wants him to touch her so badly that she cannot even think straight. Dylan is the hot, sexy barista, who is also a rockstar and absolutely eye catching that he would never believe that a girl like Carina would want him.Carina thinks he is too relaxed and not as committed to anything like herself which makes her shy away from wanting him. When her boss - Rebecca (Dylans ex and soon to be StepMom) encourages her to pursue him so that he can work for his father, she starts to fall hard for him. She is on the border now of loving him and having him hate her if he finds out.

This book is absolutely amazing, it is romantic and lusting with so many emotions involved that you start to feel like you are apart of their life. I was so torn between understanding Carina and loving everything about Dylan. You do not want both to fail and lose what they love but you want them to see from early on how good they are for each other.

Meet the author Rachelle Ayala here and on Facebook.

Rainbow Loom Quality Refill Pack - 5400 Bands

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. I am a HUGE fan of the rainbow bands bracelet craze. I have bought so many bands from Amazon (coming from China) and they always tend to break and give off a smell but I never worried about it because I was always changing them. When I started to show my daughter and nieces how to make them, they got a bit upset because the bands were always breaking especially when we tried the fishnet technique. I kept on buying the bands by the hundreds (200-300) for about $5.00 which I didnt think that was a bad price until I got the 5400 pack.

The Rainbow Loom Bandz 5400 pack I received from Rainbow Bandz cost only $24.98 on Amazon. They come in 9 different colors (Red, Yellow, White, Orange, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink and Black). Each individual pack has 600 bands and as a plus it comes with each its own plastic mini hook and clips.

The bands are really strong, quality is great and Rainbow Bandz guarantee that on purchase within 365 days. Clearly I have not been disappointed by them and it will create hours of fun without the stress of breaking bands.

Get them now on Amazon for 50% off retail costs.

VALENTIA Even Glow Vitamin C Serum

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

Repair, Refresh, Renew. These are the words that are printed on the box in capitals. I have used many vitamin C serums and this one has to be at the top thus far. I use it daily (once) and have and I am seeing the results. To make it more enticing, just know that my husband has commented on how bright my face looks. It is really living up to the bold words on the packaging. After a brief period of not taking care of my face, I noticed that I always looked tired, dry and sometimes peeling in sections. The extra two minutes that it takes to apply this serum is worth it.

Lets start with the more obvious reasons as to why I love this serum.

  • It has an attractive citrus scent that when I use it in the morning tends to wake me up.
  • Its texture is thick but not oily or watery.
  • After applying and massaging a few drops on the main areas of my face (forehead, cheeks, nose bridge and chin) it absorbs very quickly.
  • This 1.18 fl oz bottle could last easily 3 months or more depending on how you use it.
  • I have seen great improvements in the fullness of my skin
  • My face no longer looks tired on a morning
  • Any discoloration I used to have seems to have disappeared slowly over use.
  • It is alcohol & paraben free, plus it is made with organic products so that is a huge factor. The less chemicals the better.

This tiny bit of life juice (as I call it) contains Rosehip Seed Oil & Sea Buckthorn Oil which when used together work simultaneously to increase skins hydration and lock in moisture. As an antioxidant it promotes healing of damaged skin to produce a glow and more youthful skin. 

Resistem (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.

Hyaluronic Acid (Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion

Green Tea Extact- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.

This serum has already given me smoother skin and with continued use I know that the results will only get better. 

Valentia has brought a product that works and does not disappoint. With the natural ingredients and so many benefits, the only way to know how well it will work for you is to try it.

You can get it exclusively at Amazon.

I am a mom of both a 5 year old boy and a 18 month old girl and they both are owners of their own tablets. My son has an Ipad and my daughter has a Samsung Kids tablet. I am always looking for the best apps that will help them learn, be interactive and fun so that it keeps their interest. When my son used to watch cartoons on youtube, there was one that really stood out to me which is called "Heroes of the City".

Heroes of the City is a television cartoon show which is targeted towards kids 2 - 6 years old that teaches them the simplicity of being a hero in the little that you do. A fantastic show that all parents will be proud of having their kids watch!!!

To make it even better, they now have an app that has both the movies and games. The reason I  love this app so much is because my kids are able to relate and even try to figure out how someone would need help. We get to meet Pauli the Police Car and Fiona the Fire Engine who help people around the small town and who could forget Calamity Crow who constantly finds himself in problems where he would need help. Calamity Crow is always being warned but seems to either forget or just be plain absent minded. Besides just watching the movies/episodes, kids get to do puzzles, color and also gain trophies that can unlock their secret surprise.

My son can spend hours at a time watching and playing and I am not concerned because it is safe, fun and I know that he is learning lots from it. He has now been engaging his little sister and showing her the different characters and there are many. It teaches them both about friendship, sharing and helping each other which goes a long way when it comes to siblings.Highly recommend this application for all parents who are looking for something that is fun and educational.

Coobie Seamless Bras

Lets cut to the chase, when looking for a bra you want something that is comfortable first and looks good second. Now if you know me I do not have big "boobs" but what does that matter I still want to be able to get something that fits well. I was given the opportunity to try out Coobie Seamless Bras and let you know how well it works. My boobs have been through it and sometimes I want to be able to relax with my bra on but not feel like I got it on. No secret that my "boobs" are no bigger than a 34B but after two pregnancies and moving up and down the size chart, lets just say I am no longer the perkiest. Not all the time you want to wear the pushup underwire bra that cuts into your skin most of the time depending on what size your breast decides it is on that particular day.

If you are like me (or maybe not), when you get your period your chest girlies tend to become a little more inflated (great!!) but a bit sore and tender to touch. At this point there is no way I would want any underwire bra causing me any type of grief. Now this is where I let you know why I came to love these Coobie Seamless Bras.

First lets talk about how comfortable it is and that sometimes you may not even remember that you have it on. It moves easily with you and all of them are seamless with lots of styles to choose from. From scoopneck to V-neck to even Laced trimmed and Sport Bra. Most of them are one size fit all but if you think you need something even larger they do carry Full size Coobie bras made for those sizes 38A & up.

They are inexpensive and price is a known factor in determining what to buy most of the time. They run from $20.00 and up but worth the buy easily. They also are fitted with removable padding and adjustable straps. Coobie (the brand) also sells a variety of hosiery and under garments which are also comfortable and inexpensive.

Follow them on:

Have you ever had a bra that was so comfortable that you are now unable to buy?

{Book Review} Sky2 Detritus Machine

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Sky2 - Detritus Machine
Post Apocalyptic Thriller/234 Pages

After reading Sky1 Foundation I was thrilled to get into what happened after finally emigrating but them not making out alive. With Jane presumably dead and Storme looking like he was close enough to being dead, what was Nick to do? What comes next is not what this book is actually about. What events happened before Nick was married, while he was still with Carmen and what went on on Muldoin.

Ten years into the past we now start to know about Nick's  time in Muldoin (Ground 42). Imagine my excitement when reading because I wanted to know what really happened in Muldoin. What exactly did Nick learn that he wanted to share with the world so bad while down there. From the beginning I got lost into the words and with such vivid descriptions the book naturally came alive in my head.

We meet up with Anna, her intrigue and mystery draws Nick in while on his assignment and he risks his assignment to learn about her. From there on, Anna pulls Nick into a world where he probably wishes he could unsee all the stuff that began happening around him. No one seems to be who they really are including his co workers who seem to haggle him every time they could. We learn about the so called "Machine" family and the Deformer creature who is a man-machine. Anna and Nick become closer than you would think because of all the near death situations that will arise. William Amerman (author) once again brings you into the madness of the world and its grounds. With the world Nick knows everything changes when he learns what is actually beyond the walls and can he believe that it is real. You now begin to truly understand how tight and restricted the lower grounds are and that everyone in the end wants a world without all the rules and more living space, which we learn are put in place to cause rebellion. But why?

Get lost in the world, its people and its political craziness.

Get your copy on Amazon for $5.99 or on Smashwords, it will be more than worth it.
