Snowflake Building Blocks Kids STEM Educational Toys








I have several grandkids of various ages and I am always looking for toys that they will continue to play with after a few days, and toys that are educational as well as fun to play with. 

Snowflake Building Blocks are great, the kids are improving their cognitive skills without realizing that they're doing anything besides playing.






These snowflake blocks are 1.25 inches across. Smaller children may need assistance connecting and disconnecting the blocks.They come in a durable plastic tub with a twist off lid that has a handle , making it easy to carry.

250 blocks in this Mega Pack, all brightly colored plastic interconnecting snowflake shaped interconnecting blocks that are safe and non-toxic.They are safe for bath too, actually safer than most bath toys because they don't grow mold.

I love toys that encourage imagination and creativity. There is no limit to the shapes and creations the kids can come up with playing with these blocks. I even enjoyed sitting on the floor playing with the grandkids. These blocks are good to teach color recognition, counting, early math, and promotes relationship building.The introduction of STEM concepts in early childhood sets children on a path to establish a love of scientific questioning and learning.

Easy to clean, they are solid plastic, so just clean in boiling water.

VIBO Care Posture Corrector Back Brace









I remember as a child my Grandma telling all of us to sit up straight and to mind our posture. As soon as Grandma walked away I would slouch in front of the TV or where ever I was sitting. I didn't realize just how important my posture was until I started getting a little older.

I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk on the computer and it has really began to take it's toll on my back. I have a lot of muscle knots and spasms especially in the area between my spine and right clavicle. 




I was really interested in trying this Posture Corrector Back Brace to see if it would help or make any difference. The first time I tried it on I noticed my shoulders felt like they were pulled back into a more aligned position. It was comfortable, but I could feel a little tension from my shoulders being put into the position they should be in.

The instruction card that is included with the posture corrector says to wear the brace as long as it is comfortable , but not to exceed 30-60 minutes in the first week. After that you should increase time by 15 minutes a day.

In the few days that I've been wearing the posture corrector I can already tell a difference. Even when I'm not wearing it I am more conscious of my posture,  whether I'm standing or sitting. Realigning my spine is reducing the muscle knots and pain that I've been experiencing.

I know that realigning my spine is relieving my pain but I have to build some muscle in my back to keep the alignment straight. This posture corrector includes VIBO Care Elastic Loop resistance band to help build muscles and prevent pain or further damage.

I look forward to eleviating my back pain, building muscle and increasung my mobility  using VIBO Care.

Easy to keep clean, when your posture corrector needs to be cleaned , simply hand wash it and allow it to drip dry. Do not tumble dry.

Aloe Barbadensis juice combined with Pyrus Malus (Apple) fruit extracts and Glycerin and several other potent skin care ingredients this cleansing gel not only cleans your skin, it tones and softens your skin for healthy radiant glow.



Step # 2 EMIOR Fruit Exfoliator. This is a step that I am guilty of skipping in the past, not realizing just how important it is,in the battle againt aging. I was cleaning my skin, and moisturizing. Exfoliating removes dead cells from the pores appear smaller. Removing dead cells from the surface of your skin reveals fresh skin cells and allows your skin care products to penetrate more deeply into the skin to work their wonders.

This exfoliator combines Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Unsaponifiables, Barley Extract, Sunflower Seed Oil, Pumpkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate, Grapefruit Peel Oil, Sandalwood Extract, Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, and other skin nourishing ingredients.

In just a matter of a few weeks you will notice a radical improvement in the appearance of your skin. This serum penetrates deep into the dermis to nourish and regenerate your skin.

This serum does so many wonderful things for your skin. It not only nourishes your skin but it protects it from harmful UV rays and other environmental factors the speed up the aging process. It also reduces dark spots and age spots and evens skin tone. It evens out wrinkles ,smoothes and hydrates skin. Helps your skin appear brighter and stimulates growth on a cellular level.



Step # 4 EMIOR Eye Cream. My eyes are the first place that I noticed wrinkles, crow's feet. The eye area is a dead give away to tell your age. The skin in the eye area is thinner and fragile. Wrinkles make you look tired and old. BLAH!! Wrinkles around your eyes can be caused from squinting, sun damage or just plain getting older.

With proper care and a good eye cream you can address all of the problems in the eye area. EMIOR Eye Cream contains Jojoba Esters with Pheonix Dactylifera (Date) Seed Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Poria Cocos Extract, and Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract. This formulation promotes collagen production and boosts antioxidants to prevent free radical damage to the skin and reduce discoloration.

These 4 simple but very effective steps can make a big difference in your appearance but also in the way your feel about your appearance. I am so pleased to be able to share my experience and thoughts about this skin care system with all of you.

Virtual Reality Headset #virtualrealityheadset








I always try to give my readers my honest opinion on the products that I review. With that being said I want to share a really cool Virtual Reality Headset with all of you. It is very affordable and is compatible with iPhone, Anrdoid, or Windows phones with a screen size of 4.0-6.0 inches.

First thing you have to do is download the 3d app from the Apple app store or Google Play Store to enjoy the 3d effect. In order to get a clear view you have to select the split screen mode in the download.

I think a really good feature in this virtual reality headset is the eye protection that is engineered to deflect the blue light coming from your smart phone. You can also adjust the pupil object distance for further protection and viewing pleasure. There are straps to adjust the headset to your head as well for further comfort.

Once the download is complete, simply insert your phone into the headset and be prepared to go virtually anywhere you want to go in images,videos, movies, and games. This is so awesome! It really feels like your right there in everything your looking at! Sit back and enjoy the virtual reality ride , I sure am. Now I know what my kids were talking about and why they thought this was so cool.

This headset would make a great gift for any occasion, especially for yourself.

Travel Makeup Bag






I have had so many makeup bags over the years. Big ones, small ones, but I really like this one. QUANSHENG Travel Makeup  Bag is not a really big bag, but it holds so much.

I really like that it has one side for liquid products, it's waterproof, and that means a lot especially when you're traveling. I've had several spill accidents when I was traveling and what a mess that can be. I've had shampoo spilled in my clothes, that's almost enough to ruin a trip. With this bag that's not a worry. All liquid products can be safely stored in the waterproof side of this makeup bag.

The other side had plenty of room for all of your dry products. Plus there are 2 different zippered pouches on both sides of the bag.

I like this makeup bag enough to use for my daily needs instead of only using it for traveling. I have my foundation bottles and moisturizers and face creams in the waterproof side and the dry side I keep my eye shadows, blush, powder in the other side. My makeup brushes fit nicely in the zipper pouch on the front.

This is perfect for men or women and can be used for toiletries, dirty clothes, medicine,etc. I love finding  a nice bag like this to keep things organized. Keeping everything organized not only keeps from getting lost but also keeps this neat and tidy.
