Candy Club: Premium Candy Subscription Box Review

I have always had a sweet tooth and my kids are the same way. We like baked goods and candy is always a special treat. Last week we were sent a box of candy from Candy Club to review. “Candy Club is a premier candy of the month club offering the only premium, monthly subscription service designed especially for candy lovers. These aren’t candies you can find at your local drugstore; Candy Club’s sweet-toothed aficionados and tastemakers are constantly searching for unique and exciting additions from around the world to include in their lineup of sweet treats.” The kids and I were very excited when the box arrived from Candy Club. Customers are not told what is included in each box so it is a surprise. The candy is packed in Continue Reading »

Mwah Natural Lip Care Products Review and Giveaway

1StopMom was provided with products for review purposes. Opinions 100% my own. I can’t do bare lips. I don’t like them on myself or my children. They tend to get really dry if we don’t keep them moisturized. When you add in the factor of Wisconsin winters, we have to really take care of our lips. No one likes chapped lip so I make sure pay a lot of attention to our lips. We were recently sent a variety of Mwah lip balm products to try out. “Mwah offers an effective, fresh, high-quality, and healthy spin on lip care that’s still affordable for all young women. Mwah lip care products are natural, void of harmful chemicals and preservatives, never tested on animals, produced in a 100% solar powered factory in southern California and Continue Reading »

Seeds Of Freedom: The Peaceful Integration of Huntsville, Alabama Book Review

“Mention the Civil Rights era in Alabama, and most people recall images of terrible violence. But something different was happening in Huntsville. For the citizens of that city, creativity, courage, and cooperation were the keys to working together to integrate their city and schools in peace. In an engaging celebration of this lesser-known chapter in American and African-American history, author Hester Bass and illustrator E. B. Lewis show children how racial discrimination, bullying, and unfairness can be faced successfully with perseverance and ingenuity.” I was recently sent a copy of Seeds Of Freedom by Hester Bass to review. This book is a story about segregation in of Huntsville, Alabama. The story is set in 1962 during The Civil Rights Movement. Told in the present tense, Seeds Of Freedom touches upon Continue Reading »

The CosmoBiography Of Sun Ra: The Sound Of Joy Is Enlightening Review

1StopMom was provided with product for review purposes. Opinions are 100% my own. Chris Raschka, the author of The Cosmo Biography Of Sun Ra: The Sound of Joy Is Enlightening took an interesting route when writing this story. It is the biography of Jazz musician, Herman Blount, also known as Sun Ra. The book will definitely appeal to young children because the story is told as if we imagined that Sun Ra was not from Earth but Saturn. The story starts at the beginning when Sun Ra “landed” on Earth. A lot of Sun Ra’s life is covered from his love of books in addition to music, the places he lived and the people he played with. There is quite a bit of information is fit into this 40 page book. Continue Reading »

Disney’s 101 Dalmatians Diamond Edition

If you are a lover of dogs and Disney you have probaly seen 101 Dalmatians. On February 10, 2015 it was released for the first time on Blu-ray and Digital HD. My family was sent a copy to review and were able to watch it together for the first time. I think the last time I watched 101 Dalmatians was on VHS when Jazz was a baby! 101 Dalmatians originally came out in 1961 and one of the first things you notice is how the background of the movie is not a distraction. It is not very detailed and does not take away from the main characters. We decided to watch the digital HD version with the help of the Disney Magic Code that is included.  I have the Disney Movies Continue Reading »
