I Ate a Cicada Today By Jeff Crossan

Book Description: Based on a song of outrageous rhymes, I Ate a Cicada Today is a humorous children's picture book illustrated in ink and watercolor with an accompanying CD. Each two-page spread features a verse about a different animal or insect including such fanciful scenarios as "I peppered a leopard today" and "I hid a giant squid today." The CD is a guitar/vocal performance of the song by author/illustrator Jeff Crossan, who interjects each verse with a short spoken aside to provide added comic punch to the zany lyrics.

My Thoughts: Our little boy enjoyed this more than our little girl but I myself found it funny and catchy and enjoyed listening to the CD that came inside with them. I think it would have been a bit better had the words rhymed more but still it was interesting and so beautifully illustrated that you'd want to read it again and again just to look at the pictures!

Adovia Sulfur Soap for Acne

- Adovia sulfur soap, is highly enriched with minerals and sulfur from the Dead Sea.
- Your skin's natural moisture levels are balanced and optimized with Olive Oil, Dead Sea minerals and Aloe Vera extract.
- Sulfur has Antiseptic, Anti-Fungal and Antibacterial properties
- This soap thoroughly cleanses your face and body and leaves your skin gentle and smooth.
- Our sulfur soap has a 3% sulfur content.

My Thoughts: Like all other Adovia products I have tried, this Sulfur Soap for Acne is amazing. Adovia has awesome products and I haven't found anything yet that I haven't loved. I particularly enjoyed using this because it has almost no smell or scent to it at all. Very minimal if any at all. Don't get me wrong I like scented soaps and body washes ect... but not something I'm going to be using primarily for my face.

It was just a gentle tingly sensation when I used it on my face and it just made my skin feel so soft and cleaner. After several uses I can see a minimalization of some of the redness and it just feels so great!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Cover Reveal - Returning Home by Al Parks

Description: Clarissa wants nothing to do with her father – even in his death. But she can’t escape returning to Newport to settle her father's estate. The safe world she has established starts to crumble and secrets she has locked away threaten to be exposed. Meeting Griff, her father’s partner, provides the only peace and happiness in the darkness that suddenly surrounds her.

Griff has built his custom bike shop from nothing into a thriving success. After the sudden death of his silent partner, Griff finds himself in a fight to save his business from the grieving widow. But falling for his partner's headstrong daughter may cost Griff everything.

Brandi has become accustomed to certain amenities in her life - money and men. She refuses to allow the death of her philandering husband to inconvenience her comfortable lifestyle. Setting her sights set on her husband’s very young, very sexy partner, nothing will get in the way of what she wants - even if it means destroying Clarissa to get it.

About the Author: Born and raised in the Rocky Mountains, A.L. Parks has spent the last 25 years moving all over the United States. Married to the Navy - well a man in the Navy - Parks has lived in various places throughout the United States. She currently resides in the Washington D.C area, with her husband, four children, and one spoiled German Shepard.

2013 marked her debut in publishing. Her first novel, Strangers, released on her 45th birthday. She was amazed at how many people fell in love with a story about two people dealing with grief, and finding love again. Abby and Bryce were the perfect couple to introduce Parks as an up-and-coming author.

She released the first of the Return To Me series (an anticipated 4.5 book series) in December 2013. A wonderful Christmas romance, The Return introduced readers into the whirlwind romance of Eve and Jake, and proved that second chance romance can be even better than first love. Book two, Return To Newport, followed the struggles that come while on a journey to happily ever after.

Parks unique style of writing, along with her depth of characters and emotions, is carving out a niche in romance for those who crave love and romance a second time around. While many current novels focus on first love, Parks' novels seek to find happily ever after when first love has failed. They are a testament to second chances at true love that lasts forever.

Coconut Patties

Product Description: Anastasia Confections' Coconut Patties are delicious squares made of a smooth and creamy shredded coconut confectionery mix, dipped in a rich, dark chocolatey coating– the perfect blend of flavors. The 12 oz. box contains 9 Coconut Patties, individually wrapped to enhance and prolong freshness.

Made fresh daily in Anastasia’s state-of-the-art candy factory in Orlando, Florida, Coconut Patties are a souvenir favorite from the Sunshine State. In addition to classic original, flavors include key lime, pina colada, mango, almond, orange, and rum. The 12 oz. package has a suggested retail price of $5.99.

Featured on NBC’s TODAY Show and in Parade magazine, Anastasia Confection’s Coconut Patties are sold throughout Florida and by several major retailers across the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. They are available in 8 oz, 12 oz, and 16 oz boxes and also offered in counter style 2-packs and single size. All coconut and taffy products are certified Kosher.

My Thoughts: Oh my gosh these are soooooo very good! I could have gobbled up the entire box by myself but had to refrain and share with the family. LOL They just totally melt in your mouth and are so tasty. One of my favorite features other than the taste is how they are not just all in an open container but each patty is individually wrapped. This makes for easy popping into bag lunches and such. They didn't last long around my house!
