Petunia, the Girl who was NOT a Princess Giveaway

Petunia, the Girl who was NOT a Princess (Review) #notaprincess

Not all girls want to be a princess.  Petunia was one of those girls.  She loved to play in the mud and get messy.  She was lonely and wanted to find a friend who liked to do the same things as her.

 Petunia, the Girl who was NOT a princess is a perfect storybook to read to little ones and for older children to read themselves.  My granddaughter, Grace, is 9 and loved it!  She especially liked Petunia's new neighbor and friend, Penelope.  Grace also likes to wear dresses and pink, but is not afraid to get dirty.  She will put on a dress and take her turtle outside to play.   What I like about this book is that it shows that there are all types of girls who like different things.  Even if someone is different from you, a wonderful friendship can develop.  Sometimes you are not as different as you think.  It also teaches not to judge someone by how they look and that you don't have to change to "fit in".  Sometimes it is fun to try something that your friends enjoy.  You just might find out that you enjoy it too. These are some of the many positive messages in this book. 

When children get older, sometimes it is a challenge to get them to read.  With an e-reader, a great story and beautiful illustrations, it was easy to get my granddaughter to read Petunia, the Girl who was NOT a Princess.  I read the book as well and loved it.  I was more like Petunia.  I grew up on a farm and loved to play in the mud.  This story book will appeal to all different types of children from little to big. 

At the end of the book there are discussion questions.  We read through them together and I think it gave her a better understanding of the story.  This is one book that can be read over and over.

InstaNatural Anti Aging and Skin Clearing Serum Review


Anti Aging AND Skin Clearing Serum

I have been looking for a product that would help minimize light lines on my face.  I was excited to received a bottle of InstaNatural Skin Clearing Serum for my review. 

As with all their products, the serum comes in a nice size bottle.  You only need a small amount each time you use it.  I have small lines on my forehead and above my mouth.  I have tried a number of products to help these areas.  InstaNatural Anti-Aging and Skin Clearing Serum is the only product that significantly reduced these small lines.  Another skin issue I have, is brown patches on my face  when I have been in the sun a lot.  No matter how much I scrub and moisturize, I haven't been able to get rid of these patches.  After using the skin clearing serum, the brown patches are gone. I am in my 50's and have been through chemo, so my skin tends to be very dry and uneven.  This serum is not greasy and will not irritate or dry out your skin. It absorbs easily into the skin.  Because of the chemo treatments, most creams and serums don't absorb.  This serum absorbed easily on my face without drying it out.  It is safe for all skin types, even oily skin.

I appreciate that the product is made in the USA in a FDA-registered facilities and is cruelty-free (not tested on animals).  There are no harmful ingredients.  As with all their products, InstaNatural backs this serum with a Lifetime Money Back Guarantee.  

I have added Moroccan Rose Water along with the Anti-Aging and Skin Clearing Serum to my nightly routine.  Moroccan Rose Water has no chemicals, preservatives or artificial fragrances. It is 100% pure and natural rose water.  This product preps your skin for serums and moisturizers so I use it before using the serum.

It is a nice sized bottle and it  has a number of uses, along with complete skin care.  I add a small amount of Rose Water to my shampoo to soften my hair.  I love the Moroccan Rose Water and Anti Aging and Skin Clearing Serum together for my skin needs.  Moroccan Rose Water also has a Lifetime Money Back Guarantee.

Asperger's Child by Paul Schneiter

Asperger's Child by Paul Schneiter

Asperger's Child

Some say you're not quite whole,
But I know better, Angel Child.
You live in a place all your own,
Free, unhinged, sometimes wild.

In precious moments you let me in
And I am stunned by what I see.
Purple trees and butterfly bees
And things I thought couldn't be.

You tell me of other wonders
In a voice so sweet I nearly weep—
Of Daisy Lou, a lizard that's blue,
And of mice that sing you to sleep.

Then abruptly your voice changes
And your look seems far away.
I have become a stranger to you;
You have said all you want to say.

I understand the pattern too well;
You have gone where I can't go.
You dwell there often, Angel Child,
It's where you're wholly whole.

What a beautiful world it would be if we treated everyone the way we would want to be treated.  Being ignored is just as painful and being bullied.
