Simple Wishes- hands free pumping bra empowers nursing moms by giving them the gift of time and the ability to relax while pumping.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's review- The bra is super soft and fit with just a few adjustments.  It is comfortable during use.     You can pump and hold the baby at the same time as long as they are not moving around alot.  It does not get super messy during use.  It does not hold the pump machine itself so you're not completely free to move during the process if you have tubes connecting.   I would recommend this for the on the go mom who does not have 30 minutes or so to relax and pump and also if you have problems holding the pump to the chest.  It is also more discreet which is great if you have guests.

The Queen of Katwe by Tim Crothers Review

The “astonishing” (The New York Times Book Review) and “inspirational” (Shelf Awareness) true story of Phiona Mutesi—a teenage chess prodigy from the slums of Uganda.

One day in 2005 while searching for food, nine-year-old Ugandan Phiona Mutesi followed her brother to a dusty veranda where she met Robert Katende.

Katende, a war refugee turned missionary, had an improbable dream: to empower kids in the Katwe slum through chess—a game so foreign there is no word for it in their native language. Laying a chess­board in the dirt, Robert began to teach. At first children came for a free bowl of porridge, but many grew to love the game that—like their daily lives—requires perseverance against great obstacles. Of these kids, one girl stood out as an immense talent: Phiona.

By the age of eleven Phiona was her country’s junior champion, and at fifteen, the national champion. Now a Woman Candidate Master—the first female titled player in her country’s history—Phiona dreams of becoming a Grandmaster, the most elite level in chess. But to reach that goal, she must grapple with everyday life in one of the world’s most unstable coun­tries. The Queen of Katwe is a “remarkable” (NPR) and “riveting” (New York Post) book that shows how “Phiona’s story transcends the limitations of the chessboard” (Robert Hess, US Grandmaster).

I recevied a complimentary copy of the book.

Cassandra's Review- If you love chess and helping others to get ahead, this is going to be a really good read. A complex game like chess is not easy to master, but anyone can play with some teaching as well as practice. This girl however mastered it. The book shares all about her story.
