LiveFresh Natural Blotting Paper Review #teamlivefresh



The LiveFresh Natural Oil Blotting Sheets are infused with one of nature's most powerful antioxidants, green tea, to soothe, protect and freshen your skin.

The product is also eco friendly and uses 100% natural abaca leaf fiber. The premium, super absorbing sheets instantly absorbs excess oil and removes shine from face leaving you with a clean and refreshing look and feel.

 The product is also safe to use with makeup on and won't cause smudging. The sheets are designed with a finely-woven linen which will not irritate the skin. The slim package design fits perfectly in your pocket, purse or desk drawer. Use them at work, in the gym, or anytime you're in need of a quick cleaning.

Cassandra's Review-  The sheets are super thin and easy to use.  I did not have a problem with them ripping but I did not use it roughly either. You can see the results right away.

Crazy Foam Review


The playful essential in American homes throughout the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s is back and better than ever. Kids will love this 3-in-1 body wash, shampoo and conditioner that comes in unique cans adorned with pop culture superheroes, like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. 
Crazy Foam logo
Crazy Foam combines cleaning and creativity in the tub by letting kids use their imagination to sculpt and shape bubblegum-scented light blue foam. Plus, it will be a gift to parents too since it makes bathtime so much easier and stress-free!

Crazy Foam is available online at Walgreens.com, drugstore.com and Beauty.com as well as at more than 1,500 Kroger retail locations and other specialty toy stores nationwide at a suggested retail price of $5.99 

I received complimentary product. 

Cassandra's Review- Easy to use and fun. It can be rinsed without leaving any buildup. The children really enjoy the characters.  Perfect for older kids, but if you have younger ones, I would suggest supervising them, so that you have some foam left and that it is not becoming a wall decoration.

Cassandra's review-  The chair is a basic fold out design, kind of like what you would use during a concert in the park.  I do not think this will work well in sand or very loose earth. The chair will allow 35 pounds so it is not intended for rough play or teens, only babies.  Very easy to clean and fold up.  It is not heavy and can fit in a car without taking up a lot of room.  I look forward to letting my little one sit on the porch and snacking this spring.

Soul Music Great CHARLES WRIGHT Drops Black History Month Bombshell, “UP FROM WHERE WE’VE COME” Review





Among the most profound new literary entries to be released this February in Black History Month is a bitter true to life time from culturally conscious Rhythm & Blues legend Charles Wright, the singer/songwriter/guitarist best known for singing and composing '70s Soul smash “Express Yourself” still heard daily on radio, in movies and dozens of television commercials. Available starting Feb 1, 'Up From Where We've Come' is the first in a series of autobiographies detailing the life behind the music of Charles Wright.

‘Up From Where We’ve Come’ touches on first hand accounts of racism and is an honest depiction of how the now world-renowned musician went from poverty to prosperity. Written in the raw dialects and rhythms of how Blacks and Whites communicated with each other in the era, it is a riveting insider’s glimpse into the realities of the times.
 Charles Wright
“I wanted to reveal just how thin the line between sharecropping and slavery really was. It’s important to me because I spent a significant part of my life under that regime. I started writing this book 40 years ago. It’s something – given the right circumstance – I wish I could have shared long ago...But now is the optimal time because discrimination never went away. Racism simply vaulted to a whole ’nother level. Honestly, in some cases, I’d take the way it used to be over what it is today. The process of systematic racial elimination is extremely ugly to me. I can see it so clearly. I need others to see it, too. So I’m expressing myself.”
– Charles Wright

Charles Wright is a world-renowned musician and songwriter best known as the leader of the ’60s-founded Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band and for recording the enduring 1971 classic “Express Yourself” (#3 R&B, #12 Pop – Billboard). The ensemble also recorded the classics “Loveland ” (sung by drummer James Gadson who became an ace session musician in Los Angeles), “Do Your Thing ” (featuring lead guitarist Al McKay who went on to become a star member of Earth Wind & Fire) and the racial equality anthem “Comment” (also recorded by jazz legend Les McCann, alternative rockers Wilco and others).

‘Up From Where We’ve Come’ is available starting February 1, just in time for Black History Month!

Szen Zone: Reaching a State of Positive Change, by Gary Szenderski Review

Szen Zone Gary Szenderski

The general overarching theme of the book is change and all of the aspects of it – creating, surviving, and managing change with the goal to recognize the power we have to create positive change in our lives and be what we want to be.

Topics covered include productivity, letting go of the past, embracing the potential of the future, and learning to take chances.

If you are a fan of short inspirational stories like those in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, then this is a book you would certainly enjoy. Wherever you may find yourself in life, you will discover an insight or example in this book to help you change course and take charge of your life.

Whereas ZEN is of the moment and what is, SZEN celebrates what could be.

Keep your teens safe with 5 apps and devices to monitor teen drivers @insuranceQts


According to insuranceQuotes, below are 5 apps and devices to monitor teen driving

1. Star Driver. Allstate's Star Driver program encourages parents and teens to agree on limits about how fast, where and when teens should drive. The Drivewise app for iPhone and Android devices can alert parents by text messages when teens arrive at their destinations. The app collects data about driving speed, time of day, hard braking events and driving routes.

2. Teen Driver. General Motors has released technology that enables cars to give teen drivers visual and audible warnings when they exceed speeds preset by parents. If the warnings are ignored, they will surface in "vehicle report cards" that show how far and how fast the teens drove. To gain access, parents enter passwords on the GM MyLink telematics system. The first GM car to have this feature is the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu. Reports to parents list any vehicle safety features that were used while teens were driving, such as stability control and antilock brakes.

3. Snapshot. The Snapshot device isn't specifically marketed for teens, but Progressive says it can improve teen driving habits. Plugged into a diagnostic port, Snapshot beeps when the driver brakes too hard. Snapshot also monitors the time of day driving occurred and the number of miles driven. If your teen brakes hard too often, your car insurance rates may increase, depending on what state you live in and the terms of your Progressive agreement. For instance, in Nebraska there's a maximum 20 percent discount for safe driving habits and a maximum 10 percent increase for risky habits, such as braking too hard.

4. Sprint Drive First. Designed for Android smartphones with Sprint service, Drive First enables parents to establish rules for teens' behind-the-wheel behavior. A software download is required to activate the service on existing phones. Once the car begins moving, an app deactivates some features of the teen's smartphone to discourage its use while the teen is driving. People who call or send text messages will get an automatic reply that the driver isn't available.

5. OnBoard Teen Safe Driver. Free for AAA members, OnBoard Teen Safe Driver allows parents to create alerts to notify them when teens arrive or depart from locations such as school or work. Parents also receive alerts when the device is disconnected or when the agreed-upon speed limit has been exceeded.
