Learn Spanish through Speekee TV Review and Giveaway


Ola! I have always loved learning languages! When I actually started my rotations, I fully understood how important Spanish was. It sounds ridiculously corny to say this but in today's world, being multilingual is really beneficial and in my field, it really enhances the quality of care. So, I am really happy to be able to review Speekee TV, which allows you to learn Spanish through videos online. It has 10 videos altogether with over 150 minutes of video filled with the mascot, Speekee, as well as native Spanish speaking children.

New England Coffee Co. Review

I love the delicious aroma of coffee despite being a tea lover. I still enjoy my flavored coffees though and was more than happy to review New England Coffee Co's newest line of dark roast coffees because I had the perfect person in mind to test these babies out on! The Dark Roast line of coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans which are roasted at higher temperatures for longer periods of time which results in the darker color and a full bodied, low-acidity coffee with intense flavor.

TheraBreath Review and Giveaway ($25 value)

A couple years back, I had a really bad problem with my breath but the worst part was that I really had no clue that it was going on. To me, everything was normal. It wasn't until my family noticed and said something that I realized how bad it was. Trust me, for some reason, I had really bad breath; my family smelt it from the front of the car and I was in the back. It turns out I had chronic sinusitis so once that was treated, my bad breath went away. However, recently, I wasn't feeling so hot and that bad breath started coming back again. This ended up being perfect timing when TheraBreath initiated contact with me and was wonderful about doing a review for them. They sent me TheraBreath Oral Rinse 10 oz (MRSP 10.50), TheraBreath Toothpaste 4 oz (MRSP 10.50) and TheraBreath Mouth-Wetting Lozenges 100 (MRSP 13.00).

Children's Book Review: The Night Night Book

From bestselling author, Marianne Richmond, comes a another new book "The Night Night Book"! For those of you who don't know Marianne Richmond, she is a writer, artist, and greeting card company (Marianne Richmond Studios, Inc.) owner. I fell in love with her books the first time I read "If I could Keep you Little" and I was expecting great things from this book as well, and let's just say that it never failed to please. 

The Synopsis: 
The Night Night Book takes readers on a tour of the house as everyone settles in. Whimsical artwork and comforting scenes show kids it's time to say goodnight. Filled with text and illustrations that exemplify Marianne's real insights into the human spirit, it is an adorable bedtime story that helps kids and parents bid farewell to the day, settle in for the night and rest up for a new tomorrow.
As I was reading this book, all I kept thinking was, "How does she do this? How can she write such touching books that seem so perfect?!" This is a book that I want to read to my future children, not once or twice, but probably every night before they go to bed until they go, "Mom, I've got the book memorized, you don't need to read it anymore!" This is a must read and I would recommend it to any parent and kids; its truly a beautiful bedtime story. This book gets full marks, 10 stars out of 10.

Buy It: The Night Night Book ($9.99Cdn, $7.95US) can be found at various bookstores (Barnes & Nobles, Amazon,
