I just found out about a new app From Kids Academy Its called 
Preschool and Kindergarten learning kids games for girls & boys ∙ Learn to read interactive ABC, alphabet tracing, phonics song with educational app based on Montessori match letter quiz & logical math puzzle games for toddler iPad free  
(Yes The Name Is that Long)  
Or you can find it HERE 
   
The app is very helpful for kids who are in preschool/pre-k. The format is fun and exiting but also teaches fundamental skills needed for school. 
The tracing games are in an entertaining format, when you trace a line you collect “fireflies” when you mess up a kind female voice says “oops” and tells you to start over. These games encourage  the basics of  numbers and  shapes!!!  C enjoyed this app greatly and spent  Half an hour Tracing letters. (She usually won’t play a game for more than five minutes)  This is a great way for kids to learn to Print and what kid dosn’t like the iPad? Its great when you can find apps that are educational but still seem like games to the kids
This App offers multiple games  including   
                           

 In this game you follow the firefly path with your finger to create the number (There Is also a letter tracing game) 

There is also an alphabet game that teaches every letter with a new animation and a spoken voice reciting the letter and object.
 
These Are just Two of the many games available in this Amazing App 
 Check it out here

I recently had the opportunity to review the Slumber Cap + Silk Rollers from Kim Kimble

I usually take my shower at night because I am so rushed and wouldn’t have time to take a shower AND do my hair in the morning. I slipped the silk slumber cap on last night after my shower and this morning my hair was nice and silky! I will be using this every night, I love it!

 I also received  Silk Covered Hair Rollers
Highly coveted for its luxurious and delicate qualities, silk helps maintain healthy looking hair by minimizing friction and preventing natural oils from depleting. Fabrics such as cotton have the tendency to absorb hair’s natural moisture and be overly harsh, causing hair to become dry and brittle. Sealing in nutrients and shine, hair dressed in silk results in a smoother and glossier appearance.

I have debated becoming vegetarian for a few years but because I cannot eat gluten, When I go out I usually eat meat (or a salad with chicken)
Different types of Vegaterians

Fruitarian- Avoids all animal products and only eats raw foods
Vegan- avoids all animal based foods and products too
Lacto-vegetarian- will eat dairy products but no eggs

Lacto-Ovo- eats dairy and eggs
Semi- will eat fish and/or  chicken but no red meat (strictly speaking these aren’t vegetarians)

Cannot sleep if there is Any light, I need complete darkness, so this was the mask for me!
This mask conforms to my face perfectly and stayed on all night
It also includes a pair of earbuds and a carrying case. This was really helpful the last time I traveled and had to be on a plane with a SCREAMING toddler. I could hear a thing.

I Recently  received The idealshake  chocolate meal replacement shake from IdealShape to review

My lunch is VERY early (10:30) and I usually just have some hummas and crackers so the time I get home (2:30) I’m starving

these smoothies have served as a late lunch for me for the last month or so, I am a very snack person and I try to snack healthily( veggies, nuts etc.) but sometimes I just want something sweet

I’m not sure if these would be considered shakes or smoothies because smoothies have fruit and shakes have dairy

And I used both

Ingredients
1 cup vanilla ice cream

1/4 cup idealshake  chocolate meal replacement shake 
1 cup lowfat milk 
2 cups mixed berries

Place in Blender, blend until smooth, pour, enjoy!

This unique process allows tiny particles of gold to envelop the top layer of skin, creating a wonderfully subtle and radiant sheen. All skin types benefit in appearance from this uniquely stimulating and soothing application. The residual reflective particles cause light to dance across the skin, minimizing blemishes, wrinkles, and fine lines.
