myFlipShade Review

 myFlipShade adheres to back of your phone and easily flips around to provide a pop-up shade that blocks glare and other weather conditions so that you can effortlessly see your phone’s screen.

When not in use, the shield folds neatly behind the phone and doubles as a vertical and horizontal stand. myFlipShade is now available in Target stores and online.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  As an accessory it is ok.  The idea is great and the design is very nice.  For me the hinge and sides seemed a bit like it may break if you overuse it, I am not super excited to use an adhesive on my phone either.  It is only compatible with an iphone so perhaps there will more sizes in the future.

 The mobile app can be used for personalized content & to track-monitor the child’s learning progress.

I received complimentary product.

 alphaTUB is a brand new customizable alphabet peg board- each letter on the board is represented with a range of symbols that are printed on interchangeable sheets.

With the original wooden letter board, the letter “A” is often represented by simply an apple. With alphaTUB, the letter “A” can also be represented by an alligator, an avocado and even an antler as your child’s vocabulary expands over time.

With the alphaTUB mobile app, you not only keep track and share the learning progress of your child, but also download new graphics or sheets, and even create new content to share or sell on the TUB marketplace. Kids can even draw their own content sheets to learn and share with others.

Cassandra's Review- While the toy itself is not a new concept, the added technology recreates it in a way that anyone can utilize the feature to help with learning.  I think the added options to customize the sheets is a great bonus.  You need to have access to the mobile app to get the most from this learning tool.


It's OK That You're Not OK by Megan Devine Review


It's OK That You're Not OK: Meeting Grief and Loss in a Culture That Doesn't Understand
by Megan Devine

As seen in THE NEW YORK TIMES • READER'S DIGEST • SPIRITUALITY & HEALTH • HUFFPOST

Featured on NPR's RADIO TIMES and WISCONSIN PUBLIC RADIO

When a painful loss or life-shattering event upends your world, here is the first thing to know: there is nothing wrong with grief. “Grief is simply love in its most wild and painful form,” says Megan Devine. “It is a natural and sane response to loss.”

So, why does our culture treat grief like a disease to be cured as quickly as possible?

In It’s OK That You’re Not OK, Megan Devine offers a profound new approach to both the experience of grief and the way we try to help others who have endured tragedy. Having experienced grief from both sides—as both a therapist and as a woman who witnessed the accidental drowning of her beloved partner—Megan writes with deep insight about the unspoken truths of loss, love, and healing. She debunks the culturally prescribed goal of returning to a normal, “happy” life, replacing it with a far healthier middle path, one that invites us to build a life alongside grief rather than seeking to overcome it. In this compelling and heartful book, you’ll learn:

• Why well-meaning advice, therapy, and spiritual wisdom so often end up making it harder for people in grief
• How challenging the myths of grief—doing away with stages, timetables, and unrealistic ideals about how grief should unfold—allows us to accept grief as a mystery to be honored instead of a problem to solve
• Practical guidance for managing stress, improving sleep, and decreasing anxiety without trying to “fix” your pain
• How to help the people you love—with essays to teach us the best skills, checklists, and suggestions for supporting and comforting others through the grieving process

Many people who have suffered a loss feel judged, dismissed, and misunderstood by a culture that wants to “solve” grief. Megan writes, “Grief no more needs a solution than love needs a solution.” Through stories, research, life tips, and creative and mindfulness-based practices, she offers a unique guide through an experience we all must face—in our personal lives, in the lives of those we love, and in the wider world.

It’s OK That You’re Not OK is a book for grieving people, those who love them, and all those seeking to love themselves—and each other—better.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  There is no clear outline to the topic and the author shares her thoughts in a positive way.  By reading this book you are giving yourself a sense of freedom and a way to deal with grief.  With so many forms of grief it seems like the author can easily target your thoughts and get to the root of how to possibly get past it over time.
