My Last Kiss

Image
My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal
About The Book: What if your last kiss was with the wrong boy? Cassidy Haines remembers her first kiss vividly. It was on the old covered bridge the summer before her freshman year with her boyfriend of three years, Ethan Keys. But her last kiss - the one she shared with someone at her seventeenth birthday party the night she died - is a blur. Cassidy is trapped in the living world, not only mourning the loss of her human body, but left with the grim suspicion that her untimely death wasn't a suicide as everyone assumes. She can't remember anything from the weeks leading up to her birthday and she's worried that she may have betrayed her boyfriend. If Cassidy is to uncover the truth about that fateful night and make amends with the only boy she'll ever love, she must face her past and all the decisions she made - good and bad - that led to her last kiss.
My Thoughts: This is a great read. A first from this author, and she has done good! This …

Lithium Coin Battery Safety

Image
As mothers we know the importance of keeping small items out of a child’s reach to avoid ingestion. Among these items are lithium coin batteries. Every year, thousands of cases of coin battery ingestions are reported, and swallowing batteries can lead to serious injury or death. Duracell has taken steps to prevent battery ingestions by updating the packaging and product to have more obvious warnings. But the root of the problem remains: there is a lack of awareness around which devices in the home have coin batteries and what other safety measures can be taken to prevent ingestion. Take a close look at the Infographic, and get proactive.

They are bringing back the memories, vibrancy, smells, smiles, and the fun of brushing on and peeling off of Bo-Po nail polish that was originally made popular in the 80's by Tinkerbell Play Cosmetics.

Now, the little girls who grew up with these toys are parents and can create new memories with their kids of painting their nails, blowing gently on the fingertips to dry them, and then peeling it off to start again with the new and improved Bo-Po nail polish.

ScarAway Daily Discs & Sheets

Image
ScarAway shrinks, flattens and fades scars, both old and new, with the same clinically proven silicone sheet technology used by plastic surgeons, hospitals, and burn centers nationwide. I was able to try some of the new products by ScarAway. New ScarAway Daily Discs: Use the same advanced patented silicone technology as their larger sheet counterparts but come in a petite, round format that is perfect for smaller scars (such as those that result from biopsies, mole removal, and acne blemishes). They measure 1.375” in diameter and are ideal for scars one inch or less in diameter. They are easy to apply and virtually invisible. These are perfect for the scars I have from the laparoscopic surgeries I have had. Also, these are great for Callan's knees from the falls and scrapes he gets. New ScarAway Flex Long Sheets: Use new Flexisil technology to help shrink, flatten, and fade longer scars that may result from C-sections, tummy tucks, orthopedic procedures or other surgeries, as well …

The Amazing Legacy of James E. Hanger, Civil War Soldier

Image
The newly published book, "The Amazing Legacy of James E. Hanger, Civil War Soldier" written by Bob O'Connor tells the story of the war's first amputee, a member of the Churchville Confederate cavalry.
Hanger, a former engineering student, lost his leg to amputation in the first land battle of the war at Philippi, VA (now West Virginia). Hanger was very dissatisfied with the Yankee issued peg leg. It was "better than nothing" but not functional. So he built a limb for himself that had a hinge at both the knee and the ankle. By the end of 1861, he was operating an artificial limb plant making Hanger limbs.
At first he provided limbs for dismembered veterans from the Confederacy.
A meeting with Abraham Lincoln provided Mr. Hanger with the opportunity after the war ended to become a preferred vender for veterans who fought on both sides.
Over the years he obtained many patents for improvements on his original Hanger limb.
His business expanded during the industri…

Buglet Bug Repellent Bracelet

Image
Buglet is a reusable, all-natural insect repellent slap bracelet for kids. The bracelet houses a pumice stone face dial that absorbs and emits a mild scent of the insect repellent oil. The oil never touches the child as it is directly applied to the pumice stone, so it is great for kids with sensory and skin sensitivities. You just add more oil as the scent fades and more protection will be needed if the stone gets wet. The Buglet repellent oil contains 100% natural oils with 100% active ingredients. There is zero DEET or harmful toxins in this product. I was skeptical whether or not a bracelet would keep bugs away, but it really does seem to help, and Callan thinks it is cool to wear the bracelet. I want one for myself, ha ha! Callan got the Funky Monkey Orange bracelet. Funky Monkey is ready to repel mosquitoes and other pesky nibblers! The DEET-free, all natural bug repellent oils and vivid orange is the perfect accessory for any outfit. When wearing this stylish Buglet, kids …
