Wisdomantics DVD Interactive Board Game Review + Giveaway 12/29 US/CAN #Wisdomantics

WisdomanticsBoardgame.jpg
ABOUT THE GAME:

For 2-4 players, ages 12+
Wisdomantics–New King James Version (NKJV) is an interactive DVD board game for players of various faiths who desire to gain the vast wisdom of King Solomon. Wisdomantics-NKJV utilizes the proverbs of Solomon and blends chance, knowledge and strategy to create a fun experience while you learn! The game’s intent is to bring individuals together to learn how to cope with numerous situations in a fun and relaxed environment. Inside the box you’ll find 2 interactive DVDs with 400 questions, score cards, blessing cards, and more!

WisdomanticsBoardgame.jpg
When we were younger, my siblings and I love playing board games, Monopoly and Scrabble to be exact, because it's fun, relaxing, great activity to bond and is a great way to unwind.Now, my daughters who are 3 and 6, loves playing board games too so when they saw the Wisdomantics, they immediately thought it was for them.
WisdomanticsBoardgame.jpg
The Wisdomantics has rules similar to Monopoly which made it easier for me to understand. I like the plastic tokens because they look so cute.

Setting up the board game was easy and in order to play the game, we needed access to a DVD player.
WisdomanticsBoardgame.jpg
There are 2 DVDs included and each DVD has 2 sides (which means I can play the DVD on either side). Each side of the DVD has 100 questions.

In order to answer the questions, we have to pass the DVD remote control around to pick out our answer. I noticed that the arrows to the answers were not in-line with the answer (see above photo) so we had to get used to that first.

The whole verse is shown once the question is answered correctly.
WisdomanticsBoardgame.jpg
If the question is answered correctly on the first try, King Solomon shows up. I think this is cute. :)
WisdomanticsBoardgame.jpg
After that, an instruction will show what I'll do for my move.

After playing the game, we thought it was fun and educational. Here are some of my opinion about the game.

A DVD player/gadget which can play a DVD is required to play the game. After answering the question, we have to manually choose the next question by pressing the button on our DVD remote control. It's fine but it takes a bit more time specially when we get to the middle and last questions. I love the DVD with questions though, because I wouldn't want to clean up 400 actual question cards. :)

As I've said, the arrow on the screen isn't properly aligned on the answer choices so this is a bit confusing at first.

I love how easy it is to understand and play the Wisdomantics. The concept is similar to Monopoly but at the same time different because we gain knowledge of the proverbs of Solomon.

This is such a fun game and I love how relaxing it is. I also love watching the DVD by myself and try to answer the questions.

TOP2KG Digital Pro Pocket Scale By Smart Weigh Review


SmartWeighProPocketScale.jpg
A couple of months ago, I reviewed Smart Weigh's 500 x 0.01 g Digital Pro Pocket Scale and I actually liked it because it was small and portable. I can bring it with me when I need to mail letters because it can accurately weigh even an empty envelope. So, I don't have to deal with returned letters because of insufficient postage. :)
SmartWeighProPocketScale.jpg
Recently, Smart Weigh sent me their Top2KG Digital Pro Pocket Scale and it looked like the 500 x 0.01 g Digital Pro Pocket Scale I received before and the only difference is the weight it can measure. The previous Digital Pro Pocket Scale can only weigh up to 500 grams in 0.01 gram increments while the Smart Weigh's Top2KG Digital Pro Pocket Scale can weigh up to 2000 grams in 0.1 gram increments.
SmartWeighProPocketScale.jpg
The Smart Weigh's Top2KG Digital Pro Pocket Scale includes 2 clear plastic casings to completely cover the scale when not in use. The weighing scale measures only 3.94 x 3.7 inches so it's very easy to bring or even put inside my bag.
SmartWeighProPocketScale.jpg
The clear plastic casing can double as a container when I'm weighing unstable and small things like beads, powder, round fruits and the likes.
SmartWeighProPocketScale.jpg
I love the TARE function because I can zero out the weight of the plastic casing so that the weighing scale would only weigh the item on top of the case. I wouldn't have to compute and subtract to get the actual weight of the item/s I'm weighing if I'm using a container.
SmartWeighProPocketScale.jpg
The Top2Kg Digital Pro Pocket Scale is also very accurate and I like the other functions of the scale.

The PCS function helps me count the item I'm weighing, say beads or coins, by the number of pieces. I think this is such a nice feature because it'll save me time from counting up to a 100 or even more just by using the PCS function of the scale.

I like the large LCD display with the blue backlight because it helps me read the measurement easier even when the room is dark. The auto-off function is nice too because if ever I forget to turn off the scale, the battery life will be saved because it'll automatically turn off by itself after 2 minutes.

I love how accurate and sensitive the Smart Weigh Top2KG Digital Pro Pocket Scale is. I also like that it can measure up to 2000 grams because I can use it to measure my food portions too.

You can purchase the Top2KG Digital Pro Pocket Scale by Smart Weigh on Amazon for $16.99 with free shipping if you have Prime.

Great for kids ages 1 - 99+

MY REVIEW:

I've reviewed the Sleep Well: Under The Sea CD recently and I loved how it's effective for my 6 year old daughter who has a hard time sleeping every night. Recently, I received the Sleep Well for Kids: The Original CD and was super excited to see if this is as effective as the Under the Sea CD for my daughter.

The Sleep Well for Kids: The Original focuses on breathing exercises. I love how calm and soothing Janet Montgomery's voice is. Jeff Gold's instrumental music has beautiful, soothing and calming melody as well which is perfect for Janet's voice.

I let my 6 year old daughter listen to this and I love how she easily settled down and unwind. My 3 year old daughter listened to this as well and followed her big sister.

My 6 year old daughter was asleep before the CD ended which lasted about 30 minutes. I love how this helped her relax and fall asleep easier.

Rash Guard in White By Legend Rash Guards Review


RashGuardByLegendRashGuards.jpg
Every Saturday, hubby and I goes biking for more or less 2 hours. Since it's getting colder, I meant to give this shirt to him and he tried it BUT it was too small for him. I tried it on me and was happy that it fit me so I got to keep it.
RashGuardByLegendRashGuards.jpg
I chose the white Rash Guard (supposed to be for hubby) and when it arrived, I noticed that they are lightweight and extra soft. The hems are sewn nicely and the fabric is stretchy. I ordered the small size since hubby wears a size small but their size runs a bit smaller than the brands hubby wears (Champion and C9). It fit me perfectly though, so I am keeping it. :)
RashGuardByLegendRashGuards.jpg
I like how this shirt keeps me warmer than my normal biking shirts. I also like using this when I workout at home because I find it harder to sweat now that the weather is cooler. When I wear the Rash Guard while I workout, I noticed that I sweat more so I find my workouts more effective with the Rash Guard.

I've washed this a couple of times already and I like how the fabric didn't shrink and the quality is still the same as new. There are

You can purchase the Rash Guard on Amazon with free shipping if you have Prime.

3.3 Ft. Charge And Sync Lightning Connector By +LIFEGUARD Review


LifeguardChargeAndSyncCable.jpg
I always like to keep a spare lightning connector at home so that I wouldn't have to transfer my connector from the USB charger to my PC/laptop when I'm transferring files to my iPad. Most of the time, I misplace the lightning connector once I remove it from the USB charger so an extra lightning connector is a must for me.

+Lifeguard's Charge and Sync Lightning Connector is Apple certified and is compatible with all Apple devices that work with lightning connector. It's 3.3 feet long and 100% compatible with iOS 8. It's light and made of durable quality materials.
LifeguardChargeAndSyncCable.jpg
I compared my original lightning connector from the iPad box (right) to +Lifeguard's charge and sync connector (left with the red logo) and there's actually no difference. The length of the lightning connector from my iPad and +Lifeguard is the same. Nothing more, nothing less. The only difference I noticed was in the cable itself. The +Lifeguard's charge and sync connector's cable is more hard and has a more plastic feel whereas the cable from my original charge and sync connector is more smooth and rubbery in texture. I didn't have any problems with the feel of the cables because what matters is that it works and it's durable.
LifeguardChargeAndSyncCable.jpg
I tried this to charge my iPad and it worked perfectly. It also worked to transfer files to and from my PC/laptop. I like how the lightning connector fits like my original one.

This is a high quality lightning connector and I like how it looks like my original lightning connector from my iPad box. I love that I now have a spare one so that I wouldn't have to transfer the connector to and from my PC/laptop.

You can purchase the +Lifeguard Charge and Sync Lightning Connector on Amazon for $9.97 with free shipping if you have Prime.

Clay And Mud Mask By Voila Natural Review + #Giveaway 1/5 US


ClayAndMudMaskByVoilaNatural.jpg
Having an oily skin type (I used to say combination leaning to a more oily skin type), I have regular breakouts, white heads on my nose, large pores on my cheeks and nose, and of course the shiny, I can fry an egg already skin by noon. This gets worse when it gets warmer because my face gets oilier. That's why facial masks are my best friends. I cannot skip my twice or sometimes thrice a week (depending on the weather) facial mask application at home. I even wrote a separate blog post on the reasons why I love to use mud masks. Read my blog post here.

Recently, I received Voila Natural's Clay and Mud Mask. It came in a white squeezable bottle with a flip top cover.

Voila Natural's Clay and Mud Mask contains 100% all-natural and organic ingredients which includes Dead Sea Mud, Kaolin Clay, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Distilled Water, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Jojoba Oil, Hickory Bark Extract, Organic Calendula, Organic Burdock Root, Organic Dandelion Root, Organic Peppermint, Organic Red Clover, Organic Licorice, Organic Yellowdock, Organic Ginger, Mixed Tocopherols, Organic Guar Gum, Organic Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil, Organic Mint Essential Oil.

The clay and mud mask by Voila Natural has a dark green color, has a thick consistency and smells a bit minty. I'm not a fan of minty scents but I find the scent non-irritating. I applied the mask after I cleansed my skin with my facial cleanser. The direction stated that I only apply a thin layer of the mask on my face and leave it for 5 to 15 minutes.

The clay and mud mask has a very cooling sensation and as it dries, it gave me the tingling and tightening sensation I like in a mud mask. It dried quickly (in less than 10 minutes) so I washed it afterwards. The cooling sensation might be mistaken for a subtle burning sensation but for me, it was kind of relaxing and refreshing.

After rinsing my face with warm water, my skin felt refreshed, rejuvenated and brighter. I noticed my BIG acne on my chin and side of the nose became noticeably smaller and less inflamed.

The Voila Natural's Clay and Mud Mask is effective in controlling the oiliness of my skin and made my pores look smaller. I like how easy it is to use and I like how it doesn't give me any skin allergies or redness.

Right now, you can use the code WVB63OPU at checkout on Amazon to give you 20% off the Voila Natural Clay and Mud Mask. Hurry because this expires January 1! :)

Cellulite Cream By InstaNatural Review


InstaNaturalCelluliteCream.jpg
Cellulite. Honestly, I have them all over my upper thighs. I do exercises with squats and after losing 10 lbs. over the last couple of months, they've lessened but they're still there.

I noticed that using a cellulite cream helps a bit to lessen the cellulite on my upper thighs but I don't rely on it to completely rid of me of my cellulite. Of course I believe that diet and exercise is still the best way but I like using a cellulite cream because I notice they help when I couple it with exercise.
InstaNaturalCelluliteCream.jpg
InstaNatural sent me their Cellulite Cream and I'm excited to try it. I like products by InstaNatural because they're gentle yet effective. I've tried several of their products already and each product works great.

Their Cellulite Cream consist of the following key ingredients:
+ Caffeine
+ Retinol
+ Cocoa Butter
+ Shea Butter
+ Vitamin C
+ Vitamin B5

Caffeine is popularly know for its toning and tightening property, while Retinol repairs and restores, so you can obtain long-lasting results for a firm and supple appearance.

The Cellulite Cream by InstaNatural came in a white bottle with an orange label and a black cover. I like the pump incorporated in the bottle because it's easier to squeeze and I can easily control the amount of cream I wanted to dispense.
InstaNaturalCelluliteCream.jpg
The Cellulite Cream by InstaNatural has an off-white color and has a thick, rich and creamy consistency. I honestly loved the scent of the cellulite cream because it smells fresh and nice. Most of the cellulite cream I've tried in the past has a minty scent so I'm glad InstaNatural's Cellulite Cream is far from smelling minty.

Since my problem areas are my upper thighs, I use the cellulite cream around my upper thighs at night before going to bed. I like how easy it is to spread and I like how it doesn't feel greasy at all. I don't like and avoid products with a greasy feel because it makes me feel icky.

The cellulite cream is gentle and didn't cause me any skin reactions. I also like that this helped with moisturizing my thighs. I didn't need to put lotion on my thighs while I'm using this.

Coupled with exercise, InstaNatural's Cellulite Cream helped in reducing the appearance of cellulite around my thighs. :) I like how gentle yet effective it is.

You can visit InstaNatural's WEBSITE to learn more about their products or you can purchase their Cellulite Cream on Amazon for $23.75 with free shipping if you have Prime.
