THE FIVE ELEMENTS by Dondi Dahlin Review

The Five Elements by Dondi Dahlin

The Five Elements brings the wisdom of an ancient healing system to modern readers, helping them understand themselves–why they do what they do–better.

Dondi Dahlin shows us that we are all born with individual rhythms that go beyond the influence of our genes and upbringing. The five elements originated in ancient Chinese medicine over 2,000 years ago–when scholars theorized that the universe is composed of five forces: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. Understanding these elements helps us stay in balance physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. By explaining the efficacy of wood, the depth of water, the joy of fire, the compassion of earth, and the wisdom of metal, this book helps people understand themselves and form lasting connections to others, answering the age-old question of why we do what we do.

 THE FIVE ELEMENTS: Understand Yourself and Enhance Your Relationships with the Wisdom of the World's Oldest Personality Type System (September 27, 2016) by Dondi Dahlin.

Author Bio: DONDI DAHLIN is an author, speaker, and internationally-acclaimed dancer, actress, and teacher. She coauthored The Little Book of Energy Medicine with her mother, Donna Eden, and heads the "Teach the Teacher" program for the Eden Energy Medicine Certification Program in Phoenix, Arizona.

Goodnight, Manger By Laura Sassi Review

The board book edition of Goodnight, Manger, written by Laura Sassi and illustrated by New York Times bestselling artist Jane Chapman, tells the story of Mary and Joseph as they try to lull Jesus to sleep in the noisy stable after his birth.

It's bedtime for Baby Jesus, but who knew a manger could be so loud? Mama, Papa, and all of the animals try to lull the baby to sleep, but between itchy hay, angels' joyful hosanas, and three kings bearing noisy gifts, it's just too loud. Until Mama finds a way for everyone to work together to shepherd Baby into peaceful dreams under the twinkling stars.

With sweet, rhyming text in the style of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, Goodnight, Manger offers a unique twist on the classic manger tale, deftly weaving together the comforting and familiar routines of bedtime with the special magic and wonder of the manger story.

Laura Sassi has a passion for telling humorous stories in rhyme. She writes daily from her century-old home in New Jersey where she lives with her husband, two children, and a black Cockapoo named Sophie.

Coral LLC® Coral White Toothpaste Review

Coral White Toothpaste MINT 6 OZ Tube

Consider Switching to Coral LLC® Coral White Toothpaste

During National Dental Hygiene Month in October

Coral calcium helps fight cavities, protect tooth enamel, naturally

October is National Dental Hygiene Month, offering a reminder of the importance of maintaining good oral health. It’s also a good time to think about your toothpaste – specifically what’s in it and what’s not.

Consider switching to Coral LLC’s Coral White Toothpaste, formulated with ionic calcium gathered from EcoSafe™, above-sea coral.

In contrast to regular drugstore brands, Coral White’s addition of coral minerals not only helps to prevent cavities by raising the pH (alkalinity) of saliva; it also may assist in re-mineralizing tooth enamel, thanks to the unique whole food mineral complex provided by fossilized stony coral minerals.*
Coral Kids Toothpaste
Additionally, Coral White adds hydrogen peroxide for its gentle whitening effect, as well as essential oils for a fresh feel and great taste, but keeps all of its toothpaste varieties free of fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate and artificial flavors and colors, making them even safe for beginning brushers. The formulas are also now glycerin-free.

Coral White is now available in mint and tea tree flavors in six-ounce (MSRP: $6.95) and one-ounce (MSRP: $2.99) sizes. Coral Kids toothpaste, featuring Coral White’s safe and effective formula plus Xylitol, is available in a natural berry bubblegum flavor in a six-ounce size (MSRP: $6.95). Visit to purchase or locate a nearby retailer.

Coral LLC, the leading brand of coral minerals, is the original coral calcium mineral company in the U.S., using only EcoSafe above-sea coral in its products. The company is located at 5576 Bighorn Drive, Carson City, NV.

I recevied complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  Very good flavor and a super strong scent that you can actually smell after brushing and from a good distance away, when sitting next to the person using it.   The kids flavor taste as good as it smells as far as brushing and not eating it of course.  I did feel a good amount of tingle without burning my mouth.  It has a great texture and did not fall off my brush in a glump like some others do.  

EQtainment Party #tryazon .@tryazon #qwunder .@eqtainment

Cassandra's "party" review- I was excited to host a party for my friends and family.  This is what I recevied so while everyone could look at something and get a full view of everything digital I could display, no one really got much to keep.  I did give away most of the products during the party as the kids wanted them.  Of course there was not enough to go around.  As far as the products themselves they are cute and most are age appropriate though the monkey would not really be for a newborn as it can shed.

Everybody took turns playing the board game which was well put together and a lot of fun.  Of course I went and paid out of pocket for all the add on like food and other fun things so that my guests did not have to travel so far to look at my things and like I mentioned I did give most of the stuff away keeping the game for my family.  I lot of work and money went into this party not including time and planning.

As we are all private people no one wanted to take part in the photo,  but we had a good time and that is all that matters.

I recevied complimentary product.

I recevied complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- The capes come in sizes for adults as well so everyone can have fun.  I found the material and stitching to be of high quality and the customization was exactly as I ordered.  I think the larger cape would have been better even for a teen or smaller child that would really like it to be flowing and over the shoulders.   The small ones are great for really small children.   While my whole family tried it on, only one of us can use it without looking kind of silly also there is only one letter per cape, so I would select the family last name so if you have more than one person they can share and not have to wear a letter that is not for them.  I want to add that you can choose not to include a letter or graphic etc.  

Starting and stopping #NSNation #ad .@Nutrisystem

Today is the day and I am sick of the problem, so it all has to change!!!

Why?  Because thanks to Nutrisystem, I have started a great journey to lose some much needed weight.   I was blessed with the opportunity of becoming a fourth quarter blogger!!  So over the next 12 weeks I invite you to join me on my quest for freedom and comfort.   O, I will also be writing about my food adventure.
Today is my first day on the Turbo Takeoff and I will share more with you about that next week.  
Wish me luck as I hope to reach my goal.

I recevied complimentary product for review purpose and the opinions are 100% my own.
#NSNation #ad

************************UPDATE 10-10-2016***********************

I had to discontinue with the program due to some side effects and concerns I had with the food on the program.     For my readers I need to point out that I did get very sick and achy with major bowel problems.  For my own health and safety I had to stop.  If you are planning on going on this diet please note that you have to really find out what ingredients are involved and how your body will respond.

 Also you must plan to have a lot of extra spending money to keep up with the extra fresh foods you need.   This is not a cheap diet, but it does give you an idea as to portion size.   My final opinion is to just try and limit your own calories and lose weight by yourself without all the hype programs.  If you get the proper calories no matter what you eat and exercise along with a healthy amount of water, you will lose.    Lastly all of the weight loss during the plan, was gained back within a few days of stopping the diet and I was told it was normal as most of it was just water weight.  

 I am not saying anything negative towards nutrisystem or their system, I just could not tolerate it and again my health is my first concern.   I want to thank the director of the program for his help and concern although the counselor was terrible and did not even answer emails unless directed to do so, I was told mine went into spam.   I am sorry to you my readers that I could not provide a full journey or happy loss goals, but I did try and it was the best I could do.

I recevied complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- Ok, so you may think, how could a game that only has one black and white shape on a playing card be fun?  Well I will tell you that it really is enjoyable to see what your family and friends come up with.  Just on the front of the pack the game will begin as you try and come up with ideas for what the shapes are.  In the middle of the 1 minute game you turn the card to a 90 degree angle and keep trying.  My kids actually surprised me with the creative answers.   I think any age can join in and have fun, the only thing is that you do need a timer if you are going to play correctly and this does not include one.

Cassandra's Review-  The tiles are a good size so that you do not need to play on a huge table.  The whole concept is simple, but the game gets really strategic.  While any age group can play and any skill level , because there is no set time limit.   This is a great game to take with you camping etc.

Cassandra's Review-  If you love word games, this is going to excellent.  I really enjoy challenging my kids no matter what age and skill level to be able to play and have fun.  We do not have competition in my family, but we do win because everyone who plays wins.   I can also make up words and clues for my younger children if the ones in the game are a bit too long or hard.   I am a word lover, so this was a very cool game for me as well.

Players:2 to 4
Contents: Game Board, 4 plastic ant movers (Red, Yellow, Green & Blue), oversized spinner, 24 baby ant disks, instructions with multiple levels of play & fun facts about real ants.

Cassandra's Review-  I know what you are thinking, but after 43 minute of asking questions and waiting my family got a few slight movements, but I suspect the kids might have been moving the planchette bit.  You can not rush the spirits so maybe it will spell out some great information in the future, but as of now it is super fun to watch everyone ask questions and wait with wonder for a long time.   This game does have a few tricks to it so if you want to use it to trick your family, this is a great qulaity board and plastic planchette.
