Pimsleur French

29 Jul

I reviewed the French language cd set from Pimsleur and was very satisfied with it. I had a chance to review the Spanish version a couple months ago and was so happy with it that I ordered the French version as well. This version utilizes the same learning techniques as the Spanish one and is so easy to pick up.

You only need to listen to a half an hour a day and you will be speaking French in no time. I was afraid this would be a more difficult language to pick up, but Pimsleur makes it so easy. They break it down into simple, easy to follow lessons that you can listen to anywhere. Dr. Pimsleur focuses on the techniques of anticipation and graduated interval recall.

It is extremely effective and if you are someone who fears not being smart enough to learn a new language, this system is for you. Anyone, even children, can pick it up. Two thumbs up and a great value for the money!

The Pee Pocket Review and Giveaway

14 Jul

I reviewed something called a Pee Pocket recently. This device was designed by a team of doctors who were sick of the mess when taking their young daughters to unfit facilities. The device makes it possible for females to stand while peeing.

It is essentially a paper towel holder with a Kleenex. I used this product last week at a camping event and am sorry to report that although my husband found it entertaining to watch me struggle to keep the pee in a straight line, I was not nearly so amused. I think I will stick with popping a squat behind a bush and pulling my panties to the side… I am not able to recommend this product to my followers.

However, if you would like to receive one of the three samples I received to try for yourself, please comment below what this device could help you with and I will choose a winner momentarily.

Update: Thanks for the entries everyone! The winner is Debbie Periwinkle! Please send me your mailing information and your prize will be shipped out tomorrow!

Shandali Hot Yoga Towel Review

7 Jul

I reviewed this hot yoga towel last month from Shandali. It came in a nice pink color and is very soft. It is made of super absorbent micro-fiber, is mat-size, and is non-slip. It comes with a lifetime guarantee and is great for both yoga and pilates.

I used it during my hot yoga class and was very impressed with how effective it was at soaking up my sweat and staying put while I practiced. It also dries very quickly after your practice.

It is extremely lightweight and versatile for many fitness activities.The towel is designed to survive wash after wash and creates a hygienic layer between the mat and you. I would recommend this towel to anyone who practices hot yoga or pilates.

Adovia Facial Lift and Firm Serum with Dead Sea Minerals Review

1 Jul

I reviewed this facial lift and firm serum from Adovia last week. The serum is for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and it really works. The first time I used it, the serum rubbed in in seconds and left my face feeling soft and smooth with no stickiness. A lot of serums leave a gross feeling on your skin after application, but not this one.

I used the serum for about three weeks and noticed my skin becoming firmer and tighter. I noticed a decrease in my fine lines and wrinkles as well. I hope to see continued improvement the longer I use the product. The scent is very light and disappears quickly. This is good because I don’t like to put perfumed things on my face.

It is so simple to use too. You only need to pump a small amount into your hand each day and smooth onto your face. It contains dead sea salt, minerals, and vitamin C to make your skin look younger and healthier. I would recommend this product to anyone who wishes to reduce the signs of aging.
