My Little Farm Review



Recently I have found a wonderful job where i get to work with children. I started a new journey about four months ago as a Registered Behavior Tech. RBT incorporate ABA therapy with kiddos that have Autism. When I walked into this job it was exciting and I also was very nervous and I did not know what to expect. Personally I do a lot of in home session with a lot of different kiddos. There are time where I am also at the center conducting sessions with my kiddos. I am always looking around for new products to help with the kiddos that I work with. 

Recently I was introduced to My Little Farm. Which is amazing if you have a kiddo with autism. My children that I have do not have autism and my daughter absolutely loves this. I have a client that is a non verbal but he loves books and looking at them. I decided to bring My Little Farm with me to one of our sessions. We are trying to teach him how to mand. When I took this felt farm out his eye brighten up and he absolutely loved it. He kept manding book on his iPad which I knew that he wanted this out so he could play with it. We were making up our own stories and I told him to put different things on the farm board and he sure enough would for me. We could of spent hours playing with this My Little Farm. It was amazing that his product brought us closer together. 

What I like about the product is that it sturdy. My client can be a little rough sometimes and it was durable and we got through the session. I like how durable the felt objects that you put on the board. He was gentle but they were durable when he played with them. It was easy for my client to but the felt objects on the board and they did not fall off for her. I was really impressed. Overall this product can be used for many different activities. It could even be a story time activity during story time. I would highly recommend it.

I would check them out on amazon!

Wissotzky Tea Shop Review


When Wissotzky Tea Shop offers a variety of different types of teas. I know in my family that my dad is a huge tea person in the


 
fall and sometimes during the summer. When our review package came in the mail we were excited to see which flavors came in the box. We got four different types of tea for review. 

The first tea box that we took out of the box it the Spiced Nana Mint Chai. I personally never heard of Spiced Nana Mint Chai before, but let me tell you it sounds very yummy. In this box it comes with 16 silky tea bags and each bag .08 oz. This tea was easy to make and let me tell you the smell to the tea was amazing. I kept inhaling the scent of the tea. Let me tell you when I tried the Spiced Nana Mint Chai I was pleasantly surprised on the taste of this tea. 

The second tea that we took out of the package was their Salted Caramel Chai. This one is my favorite that I tried out of the four. I am a huge sucker when it comes to anything carmel. I am a huge carmel fan. This also comes with 16 bags of tea. This is a sweet and savory Chi Tea. This is handcrafted from aromatic spices blended with premium Black Tea leaves for a rich and full bodied flavor. Notes of Cinnamon bark, cloves and cardamom pair perfectly with ginger root and sea salt to create a sweet and savory chai tea drinking experience. 

The next flavor that we took out of the box is the Ginger and Turmeric Spiced Chai. This tea would be one of favorites when it is the fall season. It just warm and reminds me of the fall. I really love the taste of this tea and it helps relax me when I have had a long day at work. In this tea there is a unique balance of premium Black Tea leaves and select aromatic spices are grounded by the spirit and warm flavor of turmeric. Add Ginger root, Cinnamon Bark, Cloves and Cardamom.

Pumpkin Spiced Chai is the last tea that took out of our review package. This another one of my favorites. I am a huge fan of Pumpkin Spice. I tend to drink this type of tea when it becomes fall and not during the summer. I gave it a try anyways and I am definitely going to save it for the fall. I absolutely love the taste of this tea. This blend has a special pumpkin pieces and premium Black Tea leaves, their pumpkin spiced chai balances the warmth of Cinnamon bark and Ginger root with Cloves, Cardamom, Black pepper and chilies.

Overall I am very happy that I was introduced to this company because their teas are amazing. I can't wait for the fall where I can enjoy them more. I would recommend this tea and I encourage you to check out their website.

Instax Mini 9 Camera Review



I have a son that is turning 12 next year and he has shown a interest in cameras. The other day when we were at the store he expressed the interest in Instax Mini 9 Camera. When I checked it out it was pretty awesome from what I checked out. 

When we went home from the store I tried to explained to my son when I was around his age they had camera similar to that but they looked a lot older and clunkier. When you take a picture it would pop out and you could watch the picture develop in front of your eyes. My son was shocked but intrigued with what I told him. Yes I like digital photos that they came up with now, but you can't replace the instant photos and the fun of watching them develop in front of your eyes. 

You can imagine when my son was given a change to try out Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 he was very excited. When he opened up the package it came with a lime green camera and package of film. When we opened the box with the camera it small and just the right size for my son. What it comes in the box the Instant Camera of course, hand strap, close up lens attachment, sticker, 2 aa batteries, instructions, and 1 year limited warranty.  For this camera only the instax mini film will work for this brand of camera. 

My dad helped my son figure out how to use the camera. They are both into cameras and I let them do this together. It was very simple on how to use it and my son was able to use it and understand how it works right away. He had a lot of fun taking pictures. I did have to hide from him due to him trying to snap pictures of me when I am not looking. I would definitely recommend this camera for a birthday present for a loved one. It would bring a lot of fun to whomever is using it. This would be a fun idea to have at wedding or even wedding parties. Where you give them to your bridesmaids and groomsmen to take picture during the festivities. You can find this product and your local retailer.

Wild Spirit Fragrance Review

One thing that I love during the summer is great fragrances. I love going out more during the summer and I love to pair my summer outfit with great smelling fragrances. I recently have found a great company called Wild Spirit Fragrances and they offer a variety of amazing fragrances. Wild Spirit are made natural essential oils, vegan and free of parabens, sulphates and dyes. Their company is cruelty free and made in spirited USA. I was excited when I was able to try their new fragrance Rosy Glow. It comes in 1fl oz. 

Rosy Glow retails around 27.98 you can find this fragrance and your local Walmart or on their website. The Rosy Glow is a juicy and floral scent that combines succulent peach, lychees rose and bergamot with a pinch of pink pepper for subtle spice. The natural essential oils are pink pepper, rosemary oil, vanilla, jasmine, cedarwood oil. 

When I tried this fragrance it I loved the smell to this perfume. I have to be careful when it comes to perfume due to sometimes the scent is to strong and can give me a headache. This fragrance and the right mix of oils which is perfect for me. Another problem that I have is that when I use perfumes that fragrance does not last for a long time. This fragrance lasted for majority of the day. Which Was a good thing for me. I know at times when I spritz certain perfumes it disappears shortly after applying with it. I would highly recommend this fragrance. I would definitely would give this as a birthday gift to my friends. I can't wait to try other fragrances from this company.

Javamelt Review


In the morning when your having a cup of coffee I like to add that extra flavor to my coffee. I am one of those french vanilla or hazelnut kind of girls. Recently I came across a company called Javamelts and they offer melts that you put in your coffee to give it that extra kick. They offer four different flavors. The offer carmel, mocha, hazelnut and french vanilla. 

We received all four flavors for our review package. Each Javemelt package comes with 24 individually wrapped Javamelt. Which makes it great for travel, home or on the go. I like how they are individual wrapped and I can just drop them in my purse and have them when I am going out. I also like bringing them with me when I go to work, because I never know if I am going to have a cup of coffee. Sometimes I even share them with my friends. 

Each package is 5.5 oz box and includes 24 individually wrapped Javamelts. This melt is a non-dairy and certified gluten free, Vegan, Non-GMO. Personally I tried each one of these melts. I have been messing around on how many Javamelts that I put in my coffee. It recommended that you put 1-2 in an 8 oz coffee. It depends on how much flavor that you would like in your coffee. I shared a few Mocha melts to my friends and that what a popular one between my friends. My person favorite one was the carmel. Although I did enjoy the flavors of the French Vanilla and Hazelnut. It really depends what kind of mood that I am in. 

One thing that stands out about this product is that they are stylish and would be perfect for that special gift. I would definitely would give this product for birthday gift for my co-worker at work. I would also bring them in to spoil my co-workers. You find these products on the link below.

John Paul Pet Review


When it comes to dogs you want the best for them. We have to cockapoos that are part of our family Lucy and Penny. Both love going outside you know what that means. Time for a dog bath. When it comes to taking care my pets I want the safest and the best product out there for my dogs. 

I have been a huge fan of John Paul Pet products. I have used them in the past on my dogs and absolutely love them. When we used to get the bottles it seemed to last a long time but since we have two of them now we seemed to go through them more frequently. A little bit about cockapoos is that there not like a normal dog. They do not shed but they have hair similar to people. Where they need to be groomed and brushed a lot more than normal dogs. That why they get more baths with shampoo and conditioner to help with the tangles. 

John Paul Pets sent three different products try for Lucy and Penny. They sent us Super Bright Shampoo, Lavender Mint Shampoo, and Oatmeal Conditioning Rinse. All three bottles come in a 16 oz bottle. 

The first bottle we tested out was the Super Bright Shampoo and this is for Highlighting formula for dogs and cats. This shampoo is for light and dark coats. This shampoo has aloe vera gel, hydrolyzed oats, chamomile and sweet almond oil. When we tried this shampoo it was easy to use. We massaged gently on the fur and avoided the face area. You don't want to get this product your furry friend eyes. Penny we used a damp sponge to get her face clean but skipped Lucy because she moves to much and didn't want to risk it. Then we rinsed and the product came out easily. It left them with a nice clean and shiny fur. I was pretty happy with this product.

The next product that we have is the Lavender Mint Shampoo. I like the smell to this shampoo which it smells like mint. It does have a stronger sent to it but I don't mind. It makes your furry friend smell really good and not like wet dog. This shampoo is to help calm  and relax. The product has calming beneficial botanical formula cleanses, soothes and replenishes dry, unruly pet coats. Rich in conditioner to improve shine, while the laver calms and soothes. Which I was also a fan of this shampoo also.

The last product we received was Oatmeal Conditioning rinse. Which is one of my favorite products to use on our furry friends. This help us brush through their fur. Since their hair is like people hair that gets tangles frequently. This helps restore a silky to their coat. If you have trouble with matting and tangles then this product will be perfect for you. It easy to use and smells wonderful and I live by it with our two cockapoos. 

Overall I am satisfied with John Paul Pet products and I believe that they have quality and amazing products for your pet. They take a lot of time and effort to bring pet lovers with the best products possible.
