Rethink Inner Beauty with Barbara Roose’s ‘Enough Already’ Review and a Weekend Getaway Giveaway

Enough Already

Recognize your own outer and inner beauty as defined by God, not the media or others.

Most women know that God loves them, but might he love them more if they finally lost that last ten pounds, or got their hair to lay right, or finally found a pair of jeans that looked good and let them breathe? Well, maybe God doesn’t care about jeans, but women do, and all the talk about inner beauty hasn’t kept all of us from staring into a mirror and taking an inventory that never quite measures up. Enough Already will:

—Elevate the soul-freeing, spiritual truth that God is the Creator of beauty and that women are called to appreciate and care for themselves as his own.
—Enable women to accept God-given beauty so that when they look in the mirror they see his handiwork, not their flaws.
—Equip women to win the ugly struggle with beauty once and for all.

Learn more and purchase a copy at Barb’s website.

Cassandra's review - So the book will be good for some but not for others.  I say this because while I agree about the fact the women are stuck on the beauty of the world instead of self, I do not fully put it into my head that if I feel ugly it is not true in God's eyes.  This to me opens up many doors and takes a good message and turns it into a religious theme.    One should just know their worth without having to justify it by any means and this author seems to want to drill affirmation and worth into someone by the force of God.  So to me this book is not going to be shared among my family. I do not want my girls to feel like there was something wrong with them in the first place.    Now to be fair there are some people that might truly need hope and faith and in which case perhaps street women or drug addicts, this can be sort of a healing and finding book.

Cassandra's review-  My kids really enjoy these, but I have to let them know that it is not good to get hurt on purpose or pretend to be, just so they can wear it.  Easier to use then an Ace bandage and way cooler to look at.  The Velcro holds great as well.

The Dirty Little Secrets of Getting Into a Top College Review

A top college admissions insider’s exposes the never-before revealed secrets to getting into one of America’s elite colleges.

Your child is smart. Your child is on the honor roll. Your child aced the SAT. But is it enough to get into a top-tier college? In the Dirty Little Secrets of Getting into a Top College, educational consultant Pria Chatterjee simplifies the complicated process of college admissions, providing parents and students with the tools needed to secure a spot at one of America’s most competitive colleges. In the spirit of Kitchen Confidential, Chatterjee gives readers an exclusive look inside the college admissions office—and the mind of a college admissions officer—and exposes just what elite schools look for in a potential student. Through a series of real-world case studies and with a store of deep insider knowledge, Chatterjee will help you navigate the thicket of college admissions and show parents and students what skills and attributes to stress (and what to downplay) when applying to your dream school. 

• 100% SUCCESS RATE: This is the bullet proof guide to getting into a top college from a consultant with a 100 percent success rate getting her clients into one of America’s best universities.

• INSIDER KNOWLEDGE: Last year 35,000 students applied to Harvard. Only 6 percent were accepted. Chatterjee, a Harvard alum who interviews potential Harvard students as a member of the university’s schools committee, explains that you too can be a member of that elite group. But you must stress the right qualifications.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Having children getting ready to decide and also enter in to college is so hard, because they want the best and sometimes you can just not afford it.  With this book you get the inside scoop and knowledge that can get your child on the path of reaching a great college and loving the outcome.  So pick up a copy and do not get discouraged by the quest!

The Fishing Camp Game Review and Giveaway

 Passing a love of fishing on to your kids can be difficult to do when casting all day and waiting for a bite seems like one of the most boring activities in the world for their high energy. A new game is making it easier by adding an element of competition. The Fishing Camp game is a trivia board game that teaches new fisherman about, and challenges seasoned veterans knowledge of, the sport as they race around the game board. Fishing Camp is designed to grow with the player. Starting at level one the questions are primarily identification of fish and fishing tackle. As the players increase in their knowledge about fishing, they grow into the higher level questions.

Cassandra's review -If you have a child or really any age person who loves everything about fishing, this is a must have game. Although it is a rather fast paced one that does not take a super long time, unless you have a child or adult that can not read fast in which case in can take hours. I know that my family would rather sit and read the fun facts out loud and guess but again some of my children have special needs and so it is kind of more fun for them to do it that way. The directions are not really hard to figure out but you can play anyway your family feels comfortable which makes it another great board game.

Cassandra's review - I am a huge fan of the original Purex® Crystals that are like little rocks you place into the washer.  However where I do not have good water pressure they would not dilute properly and get a ll over my clothes and even though they  did work and smell amazing I am super excited that the company came out with a liquid version.   Now I can have the same scent and quality and not have to worry about the residue on my clothes!

Too Clever VIII: Kacie’s Chicken and Dumplings By Dr. Julia E. Antoine Review


Ten, almost eleven, year old Kacie went on a no dinner strike when her parents refused to prepare her favorite meal, Chicken and Dumplings. She had tried tears, tantrums, being a goody two-shoes, but nothing worked. So now, she has resorted to this dinner strike.
After two days on the strike, she would have given up already had it not been for the time she spends on the telephone with her best friend, Holly. Holly gave her encouragement which kept her going. She didn't know what she would have done without Holly. She shared everything with her. They were inseparable, that is until a new boy, Paul, moved into the neighborhood and began attending their school. Now Holly had no time for her, she was more interested in talking with Paul. Unfortunately, Paul was interested in talking with Kacie, what a dilemma. All Kacie wanted was to have chicken and dumplings for dinner and have her best friend back. Why do things have to be so difficult?
In this eighth installment in the Too-Clever series, young readers will once again relate to Kacie’s growing pains as she copes with everything, from learning to make do, to almost losing her best friend to secret crushes.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  Even though the book is short and very easy to read through, it holds a lot more then just the words and illustrations. There is a great family discussion involved after it is done.  I really enjoy taking time out to read out loud to my children and when I find a clean and easy to read book that does not take all day to finish, yet can provide a good message then I am very happy. Yes this book has drama and some boys may not care for it. 

Award-winning author, Dr. Julia E. Antoine, writes original and unusual children’s books that are fun, educational and entertaining. Her award-winning series "Too Clever" is too clever indeed, as one of her fans put it. Click on the bookshelf to see a brief intro about each of the characters in this series.
This award winning Too Clever Series has ten individual titles beginning with Too Clever, the original book, which introduced the ten characters in the series. The first book gives the reader a brief introduction to each child and their own particular strength. The author has gone on to give each child their own unique story in ten individual books.

Currently, she is on books five and six which will be published in the summer and fall this year. The common theme throughout the series is the curious and inquisitive nature of kids and their need to seek solutions to the things that baffle or confuse them, while they go about their exciting lives.

Teresa Tapp’s Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes Lose up to 2 sizes in 4 weeks with the Workout Review

“The T-Tapp system is the ideal anti-aging workout. Highly recommended!”
–Nicholas Perricone, M.D., New York Times bestselling author

The most efficient and effective workout you’ll ever do!

Imagine an exercise program that requires no equipment, no weights, and no bands. There is no jumping or stress to your joints. Yet everyone gets results regardless of fitness level! Created by renowned fitness expert Teresa Tapp, the revolutionary T-Tapp Workout reshapes your body while it fires up your metabolism. All you need is four square feet of space and just 15 minutes a day in order to see a dramatic loss of inches.

How does it work? T-Tapp’s unique sequence of comprehensive, compound muscle movements works the muscles layer by layer, from the inside out, to cinch, tighten, and tone them and burn fat better. Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes is the complete introduction to this amazing program. By doing Teresa Tapp’s signature 15-minute workout, or the extended 45-minute workout, you can:
• lose a clothing size–in just two weeks
• flatten your belly without doing a single crunch
• develop strength and improve bone density without lifting a single weight
• build sleek muscles and improve posture
• lower blood pressure and cholesterol the natural way
• improve blood-sugar levels in type 2 diabetes

The no-impact workout is safe for those with shoulder, hip, knee, neck, and back concerns, and is also effective for those with conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, and multiple sclerosis. With T-Tapp you’re building a better body–inside and out.

Completely illustrated with step-by-step photographs that show how to do the exercises, Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes also includes inspiring testimonials and an easy-to-follow food plan. If you want real results–real fast–tap into the power of T-Tapp!

I received a  complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  Easy to understand and use.  While I can not do everything in the book, I do enjoy learning all the different exercises and tips.  You can go at your own pace and make your own level of comfort.  Even though this system states a certain form of posture and body stance needs to be met, it can be done without it.  The book came with a DVD that is very helpful.  Now all I need is 15 minutes of the day to myself. 

Teresa Tapp is an exercise physiologist/rehabilitative trainer whose specialty is real fitness from the inside out. Teresa's program isn't about weighing yourself and counting calories or working out 7 days a week for 3-4 hours a day. The T-Tapp program is about RESULTS! Let's face it - it really does come down to inch loss. Who really cares what the scale says if you look great when you look in the mirror?

Why haven't you already heard about T-Tapp? Because Teresa has turned down many lucrative offers to do an infomercial concentrating instead on a solid program that works for everyone regardless of age or fitness level and good solid customer service which is not something you see very much of in the fitness industry.

While the taste is not amazing or unique in a good way, it is palatable. It is safer than most energy products and I did not feel groggy or sick when taking it or after. I did not have any stomach cramping of bad side effects. If I drink too much I can have more frequent trips to the bathroom and not pleasantly.
