I don't know about you, but I know that my seven year old is very excited about this new DVD coming out. He is a huge fan of Transformers Rescue Bots. As a parent I approve of this show and I actually enjoy watching it with my son also. Sometimes I am careful about Transformers because there are several different Transformer shows and they can be more violent than others. Transformers Rescue Bots I like because there is not a lot of violence and I do not have to worry about that.
About Transformers Rescue Bots: Return of the Heroes:
 Everyone’s favorite emergency first responders — Chase, Heatwave, Blades and Boulder — return for five new adventures with their Griffin Rock friends, the Burns family! And this time, they’re joined by iconic Autobots like Bumblebee and, of course, the greatest leader of all time: Optimus Prime!

Executive produced by Jeff Kline (TRANSFORMERS PRIME), TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS features the vocal talents of LeVar Burton (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Lacey Chabert (Party of Five), Steve Blum (TRANSFORMERS PRIME), Maurice LaMarche (Emmy® Award winner for Futurama) and the legendary Peter Cullen who voices OPTIMUS PRIME when he makes cameo appearances in the series.

Episodes Include:
Bumblebee To The Rescue
Bot To The Future
A Virtual Disaster
Changes
Rise Of The Heroes
Overall thoughts about the movie. My son absolutely loved watching this DVD. I am glad that he can watch this DVD show anytime because it not violent and has morals in the show. This DVD kept my sons attention during the whole DVD and watched it several times throughout the week. His favorite episode was Bumblebee To The Rescue. Of course he would choose this one because Bumblebee is his favorite.

WHEN CALLS THE HEART: TRIALS OF THE HEART
COMES TO DVD FROM SHOUT! FACTORY
ON MAY 26, 2015 
As a family on Easter we were watching TV as a family. We turned on Hallmark to watch family entertainment as a family. Later that night they had When Calls the Heart on. When the first season was on I honestly missed it until I watched it on Hallmark on Easter. I instantly fell in love with this series. I was excited to learn that the second season will be airing in the next few weeks. The second season will also be out on May 26, 2015.
This series is inspired by celebrated author Janette Oke's bestselling Canadian West book series, comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier. Starring Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing (Eye Candy), Lori Loughlin (Full House, 90210) and Jack Wagner (The Bold & The Beautiful, General Hospital), When Calls The Heart is a beautiful story with roots in relationships, self empowerment, and the enduring power of love (Common Sense Media).
Elizabeth Thatcher (Krakow) is an independent, strong-willed teacher who has foregone the life of the big city and found a jobs, a home- and a bit of unexpected romance with a handsome Mountie named Jack- in the small frontier town of Coal Valley. But when she receives a telegram informing her that her mother has taken ill, she returns to Hamilton, her hometown, with Jack as her escort. Once in the comparable opulent Hamilton, Elizabeth and Jack are confounded by Jack's ne'er-do-well brother and Elizabeth's former suitor, Charles Kensignton, But it is Elizabeth's father, William, who drives a wedge between them when he suggests to class-conscious Jack that Charles would be a better match for his well-bred-daughter. This is a story about love... frontier style. 
I am excited to tell you if you watched the first season you will the second!!! I don't want to give to much of a spoiler since the second season has not aired yet. I would definitely tune in on the Hallmark Channel and watch When Calls The Heart. You will not be disappointed!! You can pick up your copy of season 2 May 26th!!

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


When you have children laundry can always be a challenge. I know having a 7 and 4 year old their clothes can be disgusting, smelly and stains. Well I am happy that I found a product that will help keep their clothes smelling good for awhile. Recently I was able to try a product from Purex called Purex Crystals Scent Splash. This product helps boost the scent for your laundry. The great thing about this product is you can put a small amount in or you can put a lot in. It depends on your preference. This product is liquid and not the crystals. 

I received a bottle of the Purex Crystal ScentSplash in Fresh Spring Waters. This comes in a 18 fl oz bottle. When I first opened the cap to smell it, it was overpowering and not what I was expecting. Although I loved the scent I was not expecting it to be that strong. When I was washing the clothes I experimented on how much to put in my washer. I determined a little less than a half of the cap worked for me. 

I was really impressed with how great it smelled afterwards. I love walking in the laundry room after washing clothes because you can smell the scents. This one you can definitely smell. My kids clothes smelt wonderful. I will give them credit that the scent lasted a long time. Even putting them away you can still smell the scent. Which I particularly like. I would defiantly recommend this product. You can find this product at your local retailer.

I have been using this product for a about three weeks now and using this product twice a week. Although the first week I used it once to see how my skin would react with the product. Since my skin did not have a negative reaction I started using it twice a week. On the box it says you can this product once or twice a week. It depends on your skin and your personal opinion. When I applied this product it was an orangish color thick cream. Before applying this cream I made sure my skin was clean and damp for the product. I applied equally on my face and massaged it in my skin about 30 seconds. I left it on my skin for about a minute due to my sensitive skin. It depends on your skin type you may leave it on for 2 minutes instead of 1. After this step I throughly washed my face and pat dry with a clean towel. 

I was quite impressed on how this product worked. For starters this product was easy to apply and use. After using this product I noticed that my skin looked better and healthier. I have continued using this product because of the results. My skin looks healthier and even has a glow to it. I would also recommend using their other products with this product.

If you want a create gift for mom this Mother's Day. I defiantly came across a wonderful and unique gift. Recently I was introduced to Balmshot. Balmshot is a cool Moisturizing Lip Balm that is supplied in a shotshell. 

Background on Balmshot- Wayne S. Forrey, the company's founder and product inventor, contracted lip cancer in 1983 due to his outdoor lifestyle and frequent sunburned lips. After successful lip reconstruction surgery, he began using lip balm everyday to protect and moisturize his lips. Wayne became dissatisfied with industry standard lip balm dispensers because the knurled disk base would twist and orate in his pants pockets.. Thereby mashing the balm into the cap. making a gooey mess. Many people told Wayne they experienced the exact same gooey mess to solve the problem, wayne went to his garage and invented a much better lip balm dispenser system including a firmer twist base and tighter fitting cap. BALMSHOT was the result of innovative effort, and a newIdaho company was born in 2010.

They come in three different flavors Cool Mint, Vanilla Mint and Original. When I first received my samples I though they were pretty cool. I showed them to my dad and he had to have one. He thought they where pretty cool also. I love how they came up with shotshells. I will agree with them that when you bring this on the go it does not become a gooey mess like other lip balms. I also like the flavors of the lip balm. I would defiantly recommend Balmshot. You can find their product and other information on their website.

Recently I came across a great product that you can give mom for mothers day. I know that I would defiantly would want this product for mothers day. I came across a product call Dew Puff. I honestly have never heard of this product before, but glad that I have now. 

Backstory on Dew Puff:
For thousands of years, merchants offered exotic ingredients gathered from around the world and shipped along accent trade routes. Those ingredients used to enhance beauty were especially prized. For instance, Cleopatra and women of her time used ingredients from China, gaul and beyond. 

Masashi, founder and beauty visionary of Dew Puff, is a modern-day, global trader. His youth was spent in Japan and Argentina where he found his passion for travel, sustainability, and bringing the finest traditional product to the U.S. market. His wife, Maya, found Konjac facial sponges when searching out the most effective, totally natural beauty product in Asia. Masashi and Maya realized that Konjac Sponges were an answer to many skin conditions and regimens. Beautiful skin and sustainability combine in products that clean, gently exfoliate, sooth, heal and more.

I was excited when I received three Dew Puffs for review. I was quite surprised on how big each Dew Puff was. They where as big as my hand. When I opened them up I was surprised on how light they where. I was excited to try this product because I have sensitive skin and when I am looking for products I need gentle so my skin does not become irritated. The Dew Puffs that I received are Bamboo Charcoal (natural antioxidants for blemish prone skin), Original (for the purest clean gentle for baby skin) and Asian Clay (removes impurities for a healthy glow).

My favorite Dew Puff is the Original. It simple to use and it is gentle. I got my Dew Puff wet and to get some of the water out I gently squeeze the Dew Puff between my palms to get the access water out. The Dew Puff is very gentle on my skin and helps clean face and helps get the gunk and junk off. I would definitely recommend this product. You can find more information on their products below.
