Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Movie Review! #StarWars #TheForceAwakens #BB8

Don't read this if you don't want to know anything about the movie before you see it! You've been warned!

Ever wondered what it's like to live inside an At At? Fly a TIE Fighter? Or Have a light saber fight with Kylo Ren? Well, The Force Awakens does not disappoint! It's non-stop action from beginning to end. It also of course, leaves it open for another Star Wars movie!

Rey, Finn, Poe and of course BB-8 steal the show! Rey is a girl living on Jaccu and her parents were taken from her when she was a young girl. So she continues to live there, waiting for her parents to return, but they don't. Finn is amazing! That's all I will say about him! And Princess Leia, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker? Well, you will just have to watch the movie to find out! Also, Kylo Ren! You will need to watch the movie to find out who he is also! Until then, Go See Star Wars: The Force Awakens! You will not be disappointed! I saw it normally without the 3D effects, and it was amazing! I can only imagine what the 3D effects might be in this movie! It would probably make it even more awesome!

I don't completely understand why it's PG-13, there are a few monsters in the beginning that might scare kids who get scared easily, but other than that, it was great! No bad language, nudity, nothing bad, not violent. It's no worse then letting your kids see the first Star Wars movie! So take your kids, and enjoy the show!

Reindeer Dust - Children's Book #Review & #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/18 #HolidayGiftGuide

All around the world, families are preparing for a season of magic. Many holiday traditions have existed throughout the years, but one tradition that is quickly sweeping the nation is the fun and festive ritual of sprinkling “reindeer dust” on Christmas Eve to attract Santa’s reindeer. A perfect way to spend time together and get every member of the family in the spirit, it’s no wonder reindeer dust is such a hit; but where and why did the tradition begin?

Kate Dwyer explains in her magical new holiday picture book, Reindeer Dust. In a fun and lyrical tale, readers are immersed in the story of hungry and harried reindeer who can’t find houses to land on through thick fog. Santa has a sled overflowing with presents, but he’ll never be able to deliver them if the reindeer don’t know where to land! One little boy, William, devises a plan: he mixes up a special batch of reindeer dust and he and his friends and family sprinkle it outside while reciting “I will always believe!” Through the fog, the reindeer are able to spot the glittering trail of reindeer dust, and Christmas is saved!

Dwyer, a mother of two and passionate advocate for children’s advancement and literacy, knew she had to share the magic behind reindeer dust when her own family became so attached to the yearly tradition. She aimed to engage children’s imaginations through family participation.

“It was important for me to write a book that features an engaging element that would both visually and physically bring the story to life,” Dwyer says.

With a captivating tale and beautiful illustrations, Reindeer Dust is sure to do just that. After reading about the origin of reindeer dust, families can turn to the back of the book, where there is a special Reindeer Dust Recipe and poem to recite on Christmas Eve. Children will stay engaged and parents will love that reindeer dust encourages a fun and positive new tradition. Why not add a little extra sparkle to the holidays?

Fun for the whole family, Reindeer Dust:
- Tells the exciting story about how the “reindeer dust” tradition first began
- Includes an easy reindeer dust recipe and special poem to be read on Christmas Eve
- Engages the imagination through family participation and captivating illustrations
- Inspires a new holiday tradition that the whole family will enjoy
- Encourages children to develop a lifetime love of reading

About the Author:
Kate Dwyer is a seasoned marketing executive and mom to 8-year old twins. She is actively involved in several children’s charities and organizations. Combined, this experience has uniquely positioned her to take on her latest role as a children’s book author.

Reindeer Dust is the recent recipient of the Mom’s Choice Gold Award and the IBPA Gold (for best cover design) and two Silver (for best first book and best interior design) Awards.

My Review:
I love making Reindeer Dust. My children think it's so much fun to sprinkle it all over our front yard so that Santa can find our house and the reindeer have a snack while Santa is putting out their presents and filling their stockings. We are going to take this book to share with my daughter's class this coming Friday before they make their own reindeer dust to take home as one of their fun class party activities. The illustrations in this book are super cute and friendly. The book talks about Santa getting ready to leave on Christmas Eve and he had no time to feed his reindeer and a little boy who studied the weather and wanted a way for Santa to find his house.

ZoomKIT #Review! #HolidayGiftGuide

From snack to play to transitioning, ZoomKIT’s modular system opens doors to entertainment and care like no other children's product. Weighing less than 2 pounds, and designed with a uniquely soft, flexible, but form holding material, ZoomKIT is safe, and improves problems with dropping and spilling. The inserts allow parents to organize toys and treasures, and offer entertainment and care. ZoomKIT shifts seamlessly between locations and activities- such as from car, to campground, to playroom, to sports practice and from car seat to stroller to airplane.

The ZoomKIT line is launching with the following items:
· ZoomKIT Table
· ZoomART: a creative kit featuring dry-erase and coloring activity books created by artists
· ZoomSNACK: a bento-style snack box with a tethered drop-proof spork
· ZoomTOTE: a specially designed bag created to hold the system. ZoomTOTE can also be used alone as a parenting bag, with a waterproof and washable interior.

The ZoomKIT Table is rated children for 18 months and older, and the table legs fit children who wear up to size 7/8 clothing.  Additional inserts will be released in the near future.

Kids Go Co. has developed over 300 SKU’s for companies such as Mattel, Leap Frog, Queen Bee Clothing, Blush, Planet Toys and more. Kids Go Co.'s first products, ZoomKIT and ZoomIN’ Inserts, are now available for purchase throughout boutique toy and juvenile specialty stores nationwide, as well as through online channel partners including,, and to name a few. The revolutionary portable activity tabletop with removable inserts cater to children's needs, allows families to organize toys and treasures, and offer entertainment and care in a grab-and-go system.

About the Founder: 
Justine Smith, founder of Kids Go Co. is as a mother of three who struggled with finding a safe transportation solution for her families’ busy lifestyle, “I had a 2 hour commute each day with a two and three year old. It was torture. I couldn’t find a system to organize all of the items I had to schlepp and pack and the few solutions I did find, I felt could be improved.” After a near-miss accident due to a dropped marker, she set out to create a product that allowed children to play with their toys in a portable, safe way, featuring insets in the table-top. She has now accomplished that mission.

As a mom of three with a very busy and demanding media career for many years, Justine Smith, struggled with the long commute times, the constant rush and stress of preparing items for the day, the never-ending mess in the car and the schlepping of bag upon bag. After a near miss accident while reaching down to grab one of her children’s markers, which had fallen on the floor while driving, she said “that’s’ enough”.   She set out to design a system which would help the family’s 40 minute commute, take the mad rush out of the comings and goings, and reduce the frustrations of travel while making everyone safer - all situations which she knew put constant emotional strain on her and her family.

Reconnect With Someone You Love With A Gnoments Kit #Review & Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/18 #‎Gnoments‬ #HolidayGiftGuide

Gnoments: bringing the magic back into relationships!

New on the scene and ready to help you remember the importance of the little things in a relationship, Gnoments is a unique relationship-building tool to help you share and create special moments with the one you love.

These cute gnomes, with their plush red hats, white hair, and magnetic hands, give couples a tool to connect and add some fun to their relationships by encouraging a playful interaction and thoughtfulness. The gnomes can be used in various ways to create surprise and excitement for your loved one. If simplicity is what you cherish, use the gnome’s back pouch to hide a handwritten note, gift, or memento. For a more high-tech option, use the embedded NFC tag (Near field communications) to program a variety of messages and adventures. If you don't have a phone that will work with the NFC tag, then you can to the Gnoments website and look up the option labeled "Gnomifications." Through Gnomifications you can send the same message links via email or text.

Currently available for most Android users, and surely soon to be enabled for iPhones everywhere, smart phones can easily program the NFC tag inside each gnome to offer another exciting way of being romantic, thoughtful, and fun. Record a YouTube video, sound clip, write a text, or set up a scavenger hunt, and all your husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, or anyone else for that matter simply has to do is scan the gnome, and they will see the message on their phone! If you are away from your gnome, but still want to send a special message, Gnoments’ mobile-friendly website includes a special messaging system called Gnomifications, where one can create a Gnomitar (a gnome avatar) and send an email or text with the same links one can share through the embedded NFC tags.

Kind gestures goes a long way to show someone how much you care, and the possibilities are endless with Gnoments. Don’t wait to create your special moments, build a stronger relationship with Gnoments today.

The Gnoments kit includes a boy and girl gnome, each with a special pouch for including notes, mementos, and gifts, along with an embedded NFC chip for high tech messages and a 32 page hard-covered, illustrated story book with ideas to get you started so you can begin making special moments today.

When you put the Gnoments together, they kiss! (Their hands are magnetic!)

My Review:
The Gnoments are so cute, they will melt your heart. The set includes a book with suggestions of things you can do for your loved one, from flowers, to movies, love notes and more! These can be used during the month of December, sort of like the elves, in February for Valentine's Day or year round. I like the idea of using them year round! As they would come in handy when I would like to reconnect with my husband. Sometimes we are so busy coming and going, that we don't get a chance to speak to one another for days. The Gnoments are helping us to reconnect! I can't wait to see my Gnoment and know that he's been thinking about me and that there might be something special from him on my phone or in her pouch!

Savannah Bee Company #Review & #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/18 #HolidayGiftGuide #StockingStuffers

New Savannah Bee Company Gift Sets are now available in Target stores nationwide, $12.99/set. Each Queen Bee ‘Majesty’ canvas travel bag includes a Honey Body Lotion, Honey Body Wash and Beeswax Lip Balm in three fabulous scent lines. These Luxurious products are made with all natural essential oils, no parabens, no petroleum-derived ingredients, and are never tested on animals. They come in three types, Tupelo Honey, Lemongrass Spearmint and Blackberry Rose.

The Queen Bee Majesty Canvas Travel Bags are Buy 1 Get One for 50% Off at Target through 12/12/15!

A Note from Ted:
I founded Savannah Bee Company out of my passion for beekeeping and honey. That passion carries through in every product I sell.

After more than 30 years working with bees, I’m confident my company offers the world’s finest honey and beeswax body care products available. We carefully bottle the purest single-flower honeys without blending them. Our Everyday Honey line instructs customers how to use each particular honey- Grill, Tea, and Cheese. All of our honeys are hand-harvested at the peak of the blooming season to ensure purity. All are KSA Kosher certified, and all are 100% pure honey. We make decisions about sourcing honey based on purity rather than on profit. Trust me; our honey is the best you’ll ever taste.

Our body care products are all-natural, use organic ingredients, and work as well or better than those on the market that are loaded with chemicals. The products feel great on your skin and are good for your skin and body as well. There is no tradeoff between our natural products and how well they feel and work.

I hope our customers enjoy using all our products as much as we enjoy making them! Bees live in a manner that only contributes positively to the world around them. I see honeybees as role models for living in harmony with our environment and each other.

Here are some ways Honey heals:
- Treating Allergies
- Treating Burns
- Treating Asthma
- Treating Eczema
- Preventing Scars
- Relieving Coughs

My Review:
I love Savannah Bee Company's products! I wouldn't use anything else. They are made of 100% natural ingredients. I really liked the smell of the Blackberry Rose lotion and chapstick! I liked the way that my hands and lips felt after using them. The lotion wasn't greasy at all!
