Cassandra's Review- Remember the holder does not come with this product.   I think this product is perfect for all types of  goodies. The silicone can be washed easily and will dry without a smell.  I would watch that little ones do not try to chew on the product. There is a sealed top in case you do not have the holder stand for them.  These are great for school snacks as well. Side note, you will have to use a little hot water to get ice type stuff out and if you do over fill them or lay them flat you will have a but of a mess before the freeze takes place.

Off Balance, the American Way of Health, a Pharmacist's Perspective on Why Drugs Don't Work -Review


In Off Balance, The American Way of Health, author and pharmacist Dr. Leyla Ali's shares her unique perspective of a failing healthcare system in a colorful and easy-to-read format. 

After reading this book, Dr. Leyla hopes the reader will not only understand the limitations of doctors and drugs, but also take responsibility for their own health and start seeking holistic and alternative solutions for their own healthcare needs. 

Includes:
Explanation of how drugs really work to only suppress symptoms, and create long-term customers. 
Interviews with several individuals who have healed themselves from various health conditions including pain, toxicities, eating disorders, Tourette Syndrome, neuropathy, and cancer.
Interviews with practitioners who have unique viewpoints, such as an Ayurvedic Medicine Practitioner, a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, and a Medical Anthropologist
Dr. Leyla Ali, Pharm.D.
Created by pharmacist and author, Dr. Leyla Ali has been researching the various alternative health care options for many years, and aims to help people find more natural solutions that what doctors and drugs have to offer.

Dr. Leyla Ali grew up in a household where her father was a surgeon and her mother a surgical technician. The world of doctors and drugs was all that Dr. Ali was familiar with. In time she decided to become a pharmacist. Although she often heard that "pharmaceuticals were just a business", it wasn't until a few years after pharmacy school that she truly understood the gravity of what those words meant. Much of her efforts in the years that have passed since that awareness have been spent exploring and critically examining Western as well as alternative health care with the object of shedding light on what truly establishes and maintains the most healthy state possible.

Cassandra's Review-  You will find great information and illustrations in this book that will help you to think about different ways to treat your body and mind.   The approach is so simple and the facts are spot on.  I would recommend this book to the older age groups as young readers do not have a need to know this or connect with it yet.  I like the quotes at the beginning of each chapter and the cartoons are intuitive. Some of the book is down right sad but in the end it was worth picking up.

Tunnel Visions by Kurt Kamm Review and Giveaway

Working 5 miles inside a Los Angeles water tunnel in 1971, Willie Carter was one of 17 men killed in a methane explosion in what became known as the Sylmar Tunnel disaster. Tunnel Visions, a work of faction, blends fact and fiction, weaving together the historical facts of the Sylmar disaster, the current struggle for control over California's diminishing water supply, and a fictional plot to attack Los Angeles' water system. Nick Carter, Willie Carter's son, is a firefighter trained in tunnel rescue operations. His fiance, Cindi, is an ATF Special Agent. On a Sunday in 2014, they are swept up in a massive Homeland Security response to a terror alert in Los Angeles. At the end of Tunnel Visions, when Nick makes a desperate entry into a gas-filled Sylmar Tunnel access shaft in an attempt to save Cindi and prevent an explosion, his past and present are brought together in an unexpected way.

I have received a complimentary copy of this book.

Cassandra's Review-  A book that will toy with your mind. It is a great mix if what could be and what was.  The author will fill you with information that most people have no idea about.  Now in between all this is a love story of sorts and I choose not to give anything away. Just do not expect to be jaded as some of this authors writing is predictable at best.


The Third Rule Of Ten: A Tenzing Norbu Mystery by Gay Hendricks review and Giveaway

Keep current with the truth: we are only as weak as our secrets; especially the ones we keep from ourselves. Thats the Third Rule of Ten. As the go-to private detective for a bevy of high-profile clients, our beloved ex-Buddhist monk, ex-Lapd officer, Tenzing Norbu, has finally found his stride. With his beautiful pathologist girlfriend, a healthy bank account, and a steady stream of clients, courtesy of middle-aged movie star Mac Gannon and rising political star Bets McMurtry's life is bursting with activity. But its not all joy and happiness. The death of his father and a growing abundance of secrets both personal and professional leave feeling an unexpected depth of sorrow and confusion. Even with the emotional turmoil, nothing can stop Ten from taking the case when McMurtry's housekeeper goes missing. The investigation leads him down a dangerous path littered with bodies, untraceable prescription drugs, and human organ trafficking. But nothing is as shocking as the realization that the mastermind behind it all is none other than Chaco Morales, a criminal that slipped through  hands once already. The Third Rule of Ten will have readers on the edges of their seats, as they learn, along with Ten, that there is a fine line between healthy privacy and unhealthy secrecy. Knowing the difference may just determine whether Ten will stop Chaco or lose himself.

Cassandra's Review-    First of all I hate that I read this book first as I did not realize it was a part of a series. I would have loved to have read book 1 first.  The fun and wittiness are a great part of this book. I like that no matter what is going on its sucks you into the story and the characters are written real to life.  The accuracy of locations will have you wanting to go check them out online and I think this is an excellent book for adults.  I am not going to end my review just yet because the twists and turns in this book will through you for a loop and its hard core greatness till the end.  I would love to get my hands on the full series!

BIO

Bella Ross wrote her first book (a novel) at eighteen a la Jackie Collins. But back then, unbeknownst to her, life was about to take her on a detour. As she set off on her new course, her dream of writing took a backseat. But after many years of worldly pursuits, the urge to write returned. With her love of travel, it is no surprise that her ‘Wanderlust Series’ & ‘Club Pluto Series’ take place in glamorous capitals or exotic locales around the world. Its the perfect backdrop/setting for her characters to explore and indulge their lusts and passions, loves and desires. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, or gallivanting all over seeking new inspiration, or people watching while enjoying a latte at Starbucks and jotting down ideas. She loves to hear from readers and looks forward to interacting through her social media channels. So stop by and say hi!

 EXCERPT: 

 I jumped up and walked to the window. Torin was in his kitchen. Shirtless. Those abs. That sculptured, endless chest. There ought to be a law against men like him and sweatpants that hang so low they bordered on indecent. He reached down and scratched his butt. I giggled. Only Torin could look hot scratching his perfect ass. He disappeared from the window. Dang it. He was supposed to glance out the window and check on me first. Now I wasn’t going to get my morning coffee. I turned to head to the shower, and he walked through the portal shirtless and barefoot. He had the sexiest feet ever. I ogled him a little. Okay, a lot. “You continue with that and I’ll forget your mom is not here,” he warned, putting the cup on my dresser. I braced myself against his chest, went on my toes, and kissed him. I couldn’t help what I did next. I scratched his butt. “Still itchy?” He chuckled, wrapping an arm around my waist. “I knew you were checking me out, you perv.” “How? Your back was to me.” “I have lustful-eyes-on-me radar.” My feet left the floor as his lips claimed mine in a kiss that shot from warm to scorching in warp speed. Then we were rolling on the bed.
