MatchaDNA Handcrafted Matcha Bowl (REVIEW)

0ad4a5a8bcc0ad46fbeb7fba324b679eccccf0abAre you a fan of Matcha tea? Do you use it for ceremonial purposes? I found a beautiful bowl that is perfect for whisking as well as a drinking bowl. Don’t consume Matcha? That’s ok! This handcrafted tea bowl is great for a bowl of soup or a big latte!

It is available in black or white.

You can find this gorgeous tea bowl on Amazon.

I received a matchaDNA bowl for free for my unbiased opinion.

Facial Hair Removal Tool…Review

7e8c5764aa2efb22fbcd618974aef8ec4279c317If you are like me, you are noticing some hairs in places you don’t want them, like your upper lip, chin and maybe on your cheek.  I grab my tweezers and get to plucking, which is a painful chore and very time consuming.  I came across this product that is less time consuming, still a little uncomfortable but works so well!
It quickly and EASILY removes facial hair, AT HOME.  No need to run to the salon for this!
It is quickly removed from the root, without breakage.
Hair grows back thinner and less coarse over time, making your facial hair less noticeable.
You can use it anywhere you have unwanted hair, chin, cheeks, upper lip.
To use, you bend and roll.  That’s it!  ‘So much easier than tweezers!
You can find this facial hair remover on Amazon!

An Online Program PERFECT for Homeschoolers

K5 Logo - 200 pxI have a 9 year old at home who is always asking me for “homework”.  She has her regular education program, but for enrichment, we like to use K5 Learning.  K5Learning is an online reading and math program for kids from kindergarten through 5th grade.  It helps build reading, math and study skills.

This program is great, because it can be used for homeschoolers, as an enrichment to a program or by students in school, as an after school refresher.  It can even be used in the summer, to keep skills fresh.

It is tailored to your own child, by an assessment done in the beginning.  Your child works independently at their own pace.  There are over 3,000 online lessons and activities!  The lessons are interactive. Parents are able to track their child’s progress with progress reports.

The K5 program includes:

an initial online assessment of each child’s math and reading skills,  award-winning curricula based reading and math content, over 3,000 online multimedia activities, personalized for each child based on his or her assessment, a highly structured environment which allows the student to proceed through the lessons in a logical fashion at his own pace, ease of use which allows even 4 or 5 year olds to work independently, attention to child safety with no external links, advertisements, chat or similar, comprehensive reporting to parents, 24/7 availability and no downloads.

Program Costs K5 is available on a subscription basis for $25/month or $199/year with substantial discounts for siblings. Each subscription includes a free math and reading assessment and unlimited use of each of K5’s four programs, K5 Reading, K5 Math, K5 Spelling and K5 Math Facts. A 14 day free trial is available. For further information, please contact: Customer Service, K5 Learning Tel: (888) 281 2145 E-mail:

Our Review:

Hope enjoyed the many activities she encountered in K5.  She was eager to finish her scheduled homework to get started on K5 work.  She was able to do everything on her own, even the assessment.  We really enjoyed our trial of K5!

Faith of Our Fathers DVD Review and GIVEAWAY!

unnamedJust in time for Veteran’s Day!  I had the honor of getting a copy of Faith of our Fathers to review with my family and wanted to share this DVD with you all!  If you aren’t familiar with this movie, this is what it is about!

About the movie:
John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of their fathers.  Problem is…their fathers have been dead for 25 years.  Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons…whom they’ve never met.  In 1969, Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades.  They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born.  In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC to see their fathers’ names.  Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died.  Trials and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys.  The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam.  Ultimately, in parallel stories – 25 years apart – the fathers and sons are bound together forever.
Runtime: 96 minutes
Genre: Drama
Rating: PG-13 (for brief war violence)
Starring: Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Downes, David A.R. White, Rebecca St. James, Si Robertson, Candace Cameron Bure, Scott Whyte, and Sean McGowan.
Special Features of the DVD:
-The Heart of Faith of Our Fathers
-Honoring Father’s Day
-Commemorating Memorial Day
-Si Robertson Interview
-Stephen Baldwin Interview
See the Official Trailer here.
My Review:
This is more of  a general family opinion of the movie:
My 18 year old son: Wow, Mom, this movie really makes you think.  It made me thankful for all that the Veterans have done for us and our Country.
My 22 year old daughter, who has special needs: I really don’t like war.  This movie makes me kind of sad.
My 9 year old daughter: Daddy is a Veteran isn’t he? (This opened up a lot of questions about her father’s service to our country.  He is a veteran and we were fascinated by her questions!)
My husband: a man of few words, “I enjoyed the movie, you knew I would”
Me: This movie was a time for our family to get together and watch something meaningful.  It is faith friendly, but I think everyone could get something out of this movie.  It does have some brief war violence that could be scary to children or possibly affect someone with PTSD or a similar diagnosis.
I am giving away a copy of this DVD!  YAY!  It’s so easy to enter.  There are no pages to like (I would love for you to follow my facebook page, but it is NOT required. I just want to give you an opportunity to share this video with your family or friends, or just yourself.
