Through The Rug

Childhood brings many things. Iconic books are a large part of that. I had never heard of or read this book, that I can remember. But I can tell you about the Baby Sitters club or the Berenstein Bears.


Just because I never read it, doesn't mean that my kids shouldn't. We sat down and read this book together. It is a fairly short read, and they all seemed to pay attention the whole time.


Through the Rug, is a name that you don't understand, until you read the book. The story is a simple but fun one and we all liked it a lot.

Grandma, attempts to take a cooking class, but instead ends up in a magic class. You can see all around her, what happens when she tries to do a spell. When one goes wrong, they fall through the rug to Wishland. Wishland seems pretty perfect and a place I would gain a ton of weight.


I don't give too much info on books, even ones, that everyone else seems to know. It has so many more amazing moments, you have to read it to find out what they are.


Please head on over to Barnes and Noble and check out this awesome book. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/through-the-rug-jill-ammon-vanderwood/1126177519?ean=9781544244211

Vorfreude Hearing Aid

When you hear hearing aid, you often think older people. But, many younger people have hurt their hearing over the years and now need help.


My husband works in a loud factory, he has for almost 11 years now. His hearing has slowly decreased over the years. One day with this product and he was hearing everything I said...even what I mumbled under my breath.


Another guinea pig I used, is a friend from high school, who likes to go to rock concerts. His hearing is bad and almost oversensitive. He needed to turn the hearing aid down quite a bit, but was happy with how his results turned out. He just didn't like how much it stuck out, where everyone could see it.

My last test subject was my grandpa. He has a regular hearing aid, so I had him take them out and only use this one for a day. he heard everything we said to him. Even said that it was almost better than his more expensive hearing aids.


Every subject tested, and even myself, loves his hearing aid. It is made well and it is a pretty decent size. No you can't hide it, but sometimes you have to choose hearing over vanity.


It is pretty much ready right out of the box. All you have to do is put in the included batteries and pick out with ear piece you need to use. Start out with the volume all the way down, so it isn't too loud for you. Once you get it working, it is easy to hear how how the level needs to go.


You may be thinking, this is a big investment. Yes it does cost a pretty penny, but it is much cheaper than hearing aids you would get from your doctor and it works just as well as them!

Please head over to Amazon and check out this product. See some other reviews, read more about it, and make the investment. It will change your life! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N0WMN8O

NES Classic Mini Replacement Controller

We are collectors, we really enjoy old video game systems. Not only do we own them, we play them all the time.


It was a no brainer that we would get a NES Classic Mini. Yeah you can use emulators or whatever they are called, online, and play free, but what fun is that?


This replacement controller works just as well as the ones, that come with the Mini, but the cord is much longer. Ican stand across the room and still play my game!


The quality is nice and the look is the usual generic that you are use to. If you are use to the normal controller, this will not affect your game play.


You need to check out this controller! They also have wireless ones!! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01NAHC7LT/ref=sxts1?ie=UTF8&qid=1493046874&sr=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65

SnR Star Credit Card Knife

My husband loves knives. He collects them all..all that he can get his hands on that is. I don't mind it and it is a pretty cool hobby to look at and enjoy, so he was pretty happy about getting this one.


We were excited, until it came. I mean, it is cool...but we assumed it would be cooler. Once you get it all opened up..that is when it is the coolest.


The knife takes a bit to get it open, so you may be able to put it in your wallet, but you won't get it open before you are attacked.


Once you get it ready, it is pretty flimsy. Make sure you hold the bottom of the blade so it doesn't move around. As long as you hold it right, it should work well for you.


It is a cool product, I just wish it wasn't so flimsy, but for a knife that we will use for emergencies when we have no other knife on us.

Go! Pro Shakes

Go! Pro Shakes are for kids, but anyone can drink and get use out of them. I am always looking for something to replace a meal, usually it is a protein shake, but something like this works as well.


All you do is add the mix, milk, and ice. You can stir or blend it all together. I got the cookies and cream and it tastes amazing.


I am not hungry for hours after drinking my daily drink and it gives me a good amount of energy as well. I think it would be great for kids.


This drink mix tastes great and it will do great things for you, if you drink it all day. Please go and check it out, it is so worth it! http://www.skinnyjane.com/go-pro-shakes-protein-nutrition-shakes-for-kids-and-teens

Poppy Voxbox

I have been an influenster for a long time now, more than three years I believe, It has become a huge part of my life and it helps me find products that I love. If you want to join, leave me a comment below with your email address and I will send you and invite.


I am going to jump right in and tell you about all of the products, starting with the two products, from Rimmel, Oh My Gloss and Scandaleyes Micro Liquid Eyeliner.

Scandaleyes, is my favorite eyeliner to use. No matter the size, it always goes on well for me and it looks good. This one is very small. It took me 5 or 6 tries to make it look really good, before that, Ihad some fat lines! It didn't smear when I cried and it stayed on during my nap. I love it and I will use it again!



Oh My Gloss! Lip gloss, is awesome. First, I love the name, it is unforgetable! The tint is orange, I wasn't too sure about that at first, but it really worked well on my lips. I just wish it stuck around for longer without me having to reapply it. I will keep using it and I will probably buy a different color in the future.



7th Heaven Strengthen nail and Cuticle Finger Masques

I have never used anything like this, and I never thought it would work...at all. Even while I was wearing them, I doubted them, but they really surprised me. My nails looked good after only fifteen minutes with them on my fingers. I am happy with the results and I think I will use this product again. The smell stuck around for a few days!




Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Face Polish

The scrubs are scratchy, they all are, it is just the way it is. This one wasn't too bad though. All you do is wash your face and put this one while it is still wet. Leave it on for a few and then rinse off with warm water. I was still smelling it hours after I washed it off. My face feels stiff and very clean, I love it. This is definitely something I would use again.




Tide Pods Plus Downy April Fresh

Tide Pods were already my favorite, now I like them even more. I hate having to pour and measure, so just throwing and going is best for me. Now I can throw and go the detergent AND the fabric softener at the same time. This saves me money and time and that makes me happy. The clothes are so soft and they smell amazing. Of course, make sure you keep them up and away from children, they will be harmed.




NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion

Time is something I do not have much of, so I am always trying to save some. Putting my lotion on during my shower definitely saves me time. It is so much easier doing this way and I think my skin enjoys this method a lot better than putting it on later. This product is great, it goes on easily and washes off just as easily. I will buy again, even my husband loves it!




Eva NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is something that I have always wanted to use, but never had the chance to. After using this, I honestly don't know how I got through life without it. As soon as you massage it into your hair, it starts working. You get a lot of body, it no longer looks dirty or greasy and I love the feel of it. I will definitely keep buying this product!





Well there you have it. I am in love with this box. I have never had a box where I actually loved everything without having some kind of complaint! I do have to say thank you to Influenster, for sending all of this to me to test out for free!!

RC Car Bugatti

RC cars are good for kids of all ages. My husband and my son love driving cars together. If only they would last longer!


This car was advertised as a Bugatti, but it doesn't mention that anywhere on the box or the car. The colors aren't close to the ones in the stock photos.


The car is very heavy it is a metal body, probably 2 pounds or more. I thought it would be bigger than what it is, but the dimensions advertised are for the whole box and not just the car.

When you drive the car, the lights come on. It seems to be pretty zippy. If it was lighter, it would be much faster. I found it pretty easy to drive and so did my kids.


We are having a blast with this car, you should check it out on the Amazon product page. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009VPLNII

Planting Wildflowers

Bees..they can be annoying and sometimes killer, but they are essential and we need to save them! I got some seeds to review and a pack from Cheerios.


I found the area with the most sun in my yard. It will not be seen by people in the front of our home, but the ones in the back will see them!


Make sure you clear the are of weeds and till it up. You don't need to dig in very far at all.


Just sprinkle the seeds over the top and lightly tap them down with just a bit of dirt.


Once you are done, you can water these, if there isn't much rain at the time. They will only come up once, but I hope it is worth it...for the bees!


If they happen to grow, I will update and let you all see how cool it looks! Please tell me about your gardens!
