Baby Baby

Baby, Baby! is a short board book that has babies as the primary focus.  It uses lots of colours and kept my sons attention through the entire book!! It uses a rhyming pattern to make it more melodic when being read aloud – but every second page has the rhyme since it is short sentences. It also teaches/reminds children at the end that they are always loved by God – and also has a large reflective surface/mirror at the end.

The book is recommended for children 1-3 years old.

It was written by Diane Stortz and illustrated by Ailie Busby. It is currently available on Amazon.com for $7.99, or Amazon.ca for $10.99

I thought that this book was pretty awesome and ran a giveaway on my facebook page. It was open to anyone who commented, lived in Canada or the United States, and used the hashtag #BabyBaby.

Captive DVD Giveaway

As some of you may remember, I did a review awhile ago on a book I received called Captive. You can check that one out HERE if you’ve forgotten.

Ashley Smith, a recovering drug-addict (who is barely clinging to the wagon) is abducted outside her home and held hostage by Brian Nichols.

In the movie, as with all films based on a book, there are some details missing. One early example is that in the book she goes to the store to get cigarettes, but in the movie she just gets a package from her car. While some things were changed or omitted, I did feel that the movie was fairly true to the novel.

I did not personally find this movie to be very fast paced, and I would not call this a movie theater film, I do feel its a good rental type movie, or one to own in your collection. Knowing that this is all based on a true story makes this so much more real for me.

Feel free to check out the OFFICIAL WEBSITE, in addition to checking them out on FACEBOOK and/or TWITTER.

Sorry about the volume on here… I will use a microphone next time!!!! All a learning experience here for me. Songs are a touch loud – you may want to turn down a little bit. Songs sound MUCH BETTER in person, as there is some distortion from using Laptop to play the song as well as record this.

#TheWatchers – Knight of Light Book Giveaway

I was sent “Knight of Light” on audible in exchange for my honest review, and I have listened to it now at least 3-4 times — although I did fall asleep once and missed the middle.

Basically, this is a novella that takes place a long time ago in the past (1270AD) about a little red headed orphan named Auriella (pronounced yurr-ee-ella). Her parents died in a fire and she was the sole survivor, doing jobs in different homes to try and earn her keep – for very meager wages. When another fire breaks out in town, the cries of three children can be heard coming from the house, and without thought to her own safety Auriella races in to try and save them. When she exits with the children, rather than praised as a hero, she is called a witch.

Enjoying Gourmet #tea Giveaway

Since my first year of University, I have rarely drank coffee, since I was almost hospitalized – 3 coffees from Tim Hortons in one day, albeit over the course of 7 hours, is apparently a BAD idea for my body.

That being said, I adore tea. Even the ones with caffeine don’t seem to bother me nearly as bad as coffee. So when the option to test out some new gourmet teas became available, I jumped on the offer – begging for them to ship to Canada to me, and they DID!!

They came in these little stylish tins, and even came with a 15% off code for my future orders.

If you would like to try any of their tea, they are offering 10% off to all my readers with coupon code “tmpr15a” (don’t add in the quotes)  You would get 15% off on future orders I believe. They ship to many different countries, links to their site is below!

Did you know that when you are brewing tea, you can actually “burn” it by letting it steep in too hot water or too long. So they included some helpful information to ensure you get the best taste possible.
