    Posted on October 16, 2014 @ 3:12 pm

    Today’s review is about the Deluxe Stroller Organizer by ZenKid. I was really glad when I found out I was one of the approved bloggers to review this. The item arrived pretty quickly and in perfect condition via Amazon Prime.

    My Thoughts

    The Universal Stroller Organizer looks really nice. It’s made from high quality fabric and it looks durable enough to last a long time. N likes her juice cold and I like my coffee warm. The insulated bottle/cup holder does its job well at keeping our drinks cold and warm. As you can see in the photos, our drinks fit perfectly and they are stable. It also has a lot of pockets for snacks, keys, money and cellphone. The organizer also easily fits most strollers. It’s easy to clean and easy to install/attach.

    Shopping for a Guitar

    No wonder this yummy-looking Mango Mousse remained untouched until now. My two boys are glued in front of the computer checking out the newest models of Hohner acoustic guitars. My son has been saving up for a new one and my husband promised to pay half of it. Hmm, they better eat their pieces of the Mango mousse now or it will be gone when the girls arrive.

    If you happen to have boys who love playing the guitar, you better check your local guitar center store. Lots of sale are going on right now.

    Add Shine to Your Dog’s Coat

    Do you want to add shine to your dog’s coat? Here’s what you should do. Add 1/4 teaspoon of Apple Cider vinegar to your pet’s water daily, and gradually build up to the 1 teaspoon of vinegar for every 15 pounds of your pet’s body weight. [The gradual increase helps him adjust to the taste.] The potassium and B vitamins in the vinegar will nourish and strengthen hair follicles to impart a healthy shine.

    Online Shopping

    Posted on @ 2:32 pm

    Every time I shop online, I always make sure there is a Money Back Guarantee clause included. This ensures that in case you are not satisfied or there is something wrong with the item, you can always return it within the time frame specified and you’ll get a full refund. That’s the difference when you shop in a physical store; you get to inspect and try the item, but it’s always convenient to shop online.

    Too Busy

    Posted on @ 2:52 pm

    I used to make my own Christmas ornaments because back then I had plenty of time in my hands to sew, embroider and do crafts. Now I barely have the time to sit and spend even an hour to do my crafts. I miss sewing, but I also love taking care of my twin graddaughters. Oh well. This year I’ll probably shop at radko christmas ornaments at christmas place. I’ve seen some really nice decors there and the prices are reasonable. How about you? Do you make your own ornaments, too, or do you shop for them?

    Book Review: Lost In The Tsunami

    Posted on October 1, 2014 @ 4:16 pm

    I was recently invited to review the book Lost In The Tsunami, by Dorit Silverman.

    lost in the tsunami

    Book Description

    Publication Date: September 6, 2014

    What would you do if one day, without any warning, your child disappeared as if the earth had swallowed them?
    There one moment, and the next moment – gone. This is the story that Ronnie’s mother, Anna, had to go through.

    Was Ronnie kidnapped? Did she run away? Did the worst possible happen? And maybe 21-year-old Ronnie got tired of Anna? Tired of her meddling and pressing, always wanting to be there and help -sometimes a little too much.

    From Tel-Aviv’s underworld of nightclubs, drugs, and prostitutes, to the beauty and mysteries of India, Anna goes on a fascinating journey, following clues and threads of information, alongside an adventures fixer,all while getting help from friends and a variety of characters she had never met before. Anna is desperate to discover the fate of her younger daughter. While she realizes that maybe she didn’t know her daughter as well as she thought, rummaging toward her is the greatest natural disaster of our time: the tsunami.

    My Thoughts

    I found the book a bit dragging at the beginning (or maybe it is just me), but as the story progressed and Anna started finding clues about Ronny’s disappearance, I became more interested. Like Anna, I kept thinking too, on what must have happened to Ronny.

    I still remember the Tsunami in Thailand back in 2004. I was glued on TV watching the devastation and praying for those who survived. Merely watching had me terrified, what more if I was in Anna’s place? I have to give credit to Anna for holding on and being such a strong woman.

    This is a good read. The story revolves not just around Ronny’s disappearance, but about a family that has drifted apart and became closer when the mother found her daughter.

    Where to buy?

    You can get a copy of the book Lost In The Tsunami: Women’s Adventure (Contemporary Fiction) [Kindle Edition] on Amazon.

    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.
