Cassandra's Review- The brush heads do not rip into my skin or cause any irritation, but I used it as directed and did not apply hard pressure.  It was easy to clean and dried well within a good amount of time after use.  It is fairly lightweight and the pumice stone is a nice add on.  It did not wind down during use and I was able to complete a treatment in one sitting.

Brush Hero Review

Brush Hero is the revolutionary car-detailing tool powered by nothing more than the pressure of an ordinary garden or shower hose.
From the site:

Just add water
Powered by the simplicity of a garden hose, Brush Hero was designed for expert level auto detailing. But that's not all it can do.

Use Brush Hero to:
Clean tires, rims and hubcaps. Finally navigate around hard-to-reach spots such as lug nuts and wheel spokes. Erase charred barbecue residue. Wash the dog! Make outdoor furniture look like new. Clean up motorcycles, bikes, boats and ATVs. Brush away mold and other unwanted build-up. Take work out of the equation and have fun cleaning!

Brush Hero packs a powerful punch:

Innovative design, simple use, total torque.

No batteries or electricity required! Connects to any standard garden hose. Can be used with hose-end soap dispensers. Rinses as it scrubs! tough on dirt, gentle on your paint job. Uses about the same amount of water as a bucket and sponge car wash. No mechanical parts Everything is easily replaceable - including the detachable brushes.

 It is not meant to spin fast.  The Brush Hero scrubs with just the right amount of torque - no more, no less. The durable plastic is made to stand up to cleaning chemicals, and you’ll never worry about rust or corrosion. It's SO easy! With a continuous flow of water, Brush Hero both self-cleans AND rinses away dirt. You can FINALLY scrub those tricky, hard-to-reach places and clean EVERYTHING without the usual backache.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- Simple and easy to use,  it hooked right up to my standard garden hose.  My kids had a huge laugh when reading that you can wash your dog on the package.  It helped to wash the car without any scratching and was simple to put away when finished.  It is fun for the whole family to use and does not weigh a lot.

In this funny and straight-forward book, the bon-vivant girl, Nathalie Botros, will help you: - Accept yourself so you can start looking in the mirror once again! - Mend your relationship with food so you no longer have to yo-yo diet! -Lose the weight without losing your appetite for life!

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  I feel like the author is kind of pusht and uses phrases that are easily found online along with most facts.  Of course these days there really is not anything new in terms of the topic at hand so finding a creative way to word the older news is the way this plays out to me.  I know it is hard to come up with fresh materials, but this author slims it and adds a lot of already known information.

Toward a Secret Sky By Heather Maclean Review



Shortly after 17-year-old Maren Hamilton is orphaned and sent to live with grandparents she’s never met in Scotland, she receives an encrypted journal from her dead mother that makes her and everyone around her a target. It confirms that her parents were employed by a secret, international organization that’s now intent on recruiting her. As Maren works to unravel the clues left behind by her mother, a murderous madness sweeps through the local population, terrorizing her small town. Maren must decide if she’ll continue her parents’ fight or stay behind to save her friends.

With the help of Gavin, an otherworldly mercenary she’s not supposed to fall in love with, and Graham, a charming aristocrat who is entranced with her, Maren races against the clock and around the country from palatial estates with twisted labyrinths to famous cathedrals with booby-trapped subterranean crypts to stay ahead of the enemy and find a cure. Along the way, she discovers the great truth of love: that laying down your life for another isn’t as hard as watching them sacrifice everything for you.

The Memory of You By Catherine West Review

30649401

Thirteen years ago, Natalie lost a part of herself when her twin sister died. Will traveling back to the family winery finally put the memory to rest, or will it completely destroy her?


When Natalie Mitchell learns her beloved grandfather has had a heart attack, she’s forced to return to their family-owned winery in Sonoma, something she never intended to do. She’s avoided her grandparents’ sprawling home and all its memories since the summer her sister died—the awful summer Natalie’s nightmares began. But the winery is failing, and Natalie’s father wants her to shut it down. As the majority shareholder, she has the power to do so.


And Natalie never says no to her father.


Tanner Collins, the vintner on Maoilios, is trying to salvage a bad season and put the Mitchell family’s winery back in business. When Natalie Mitchell shows up, Tanner sees his future about to be crushed. Natalie intends to close the gates, unless he can convince her otherwise. But the Natalie he remembers from childhood is long gone, and he’s not so sure he likes the woman she’s become. Still, the haunted look she wears hints at secrets he wants to unearth. He soon discovers that on the night her sister died, the real Natalie died too. And Tanner must do whatever it takes to resurrect her.


But finding freedom from the past means facing it.
