Foodie Surprise Food Carts - Toy Review



It seems that "surprise" collectible toys are the rage these days.  I'll admit, I see the allure.  I had my great-nephew and great-niece over the other day to play with Foodie Surprise Food Carts, a candy-making collectible.  We all had a good time "making" pepperoni pizzas and the kids were excited they got a toy out of the deal too.



I recommend that adult supervision be used when younger kids play with Foodie Surprise.  That's only because there's some instructions and disassembly that are required.  Upon opening the package, kids will see which Food Cart they receive. Kids will discover a variety surprise ingredients and supplies that will let them create their own edible candy


some of the ingredient packets and items needed for the gummy candy

The ingredients and supplies needed to create the gummy candy are located inside the plastic cart, so it has to be taken apart first to get the items.  It's after that when you can put the cart back together and it can be played with.  With the exception of room temperature water, all supplies are included. After following the instructions and putting the candy in the fridge for a few minutes, the kids were able to nosh on their new candy creation.  Harley and MaKynzee had a blast with Foodie Surprise and have already requested more for their birthdays.

7th Heaven Charcoal Peel-Off Face Mask - Review

 
7th Heaven offers face masks and other natural skin care products to make your skin look and feel its best, all without breaking the bank. The most recent I've been able to review is their Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask.  

The 7th Heaven Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask comes in a packet and there's enough for one use per packet. Before applying, you should first cleanse your face with water. Then you apply a thick layer of the cream over your face and neck. Because it has a thick, creamy texture I have to use my finger to get down into the pouch to get all of it out. Once the cream is applied, you should let it set on your face for 10-15 minutes. It has a whitish gray tint. While you're waiting around for the mask to set, you can always go around the house creeping your husband out. One of you will think it's funny. 
The peel-away format makes the mask naturally exfoliating and helps remove dirt, oil and dead skin cells in one 15 - 20 minute session.

The main ingredients in the Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask are birch leaf, witch hazel, and charcoal.  After applying it to my face, I can feel the formulation take affect. My skin starts to tighten and feel firmer. It almost feels like dry, cracked glue.



I let the mask stay on my skin for approximately 20 minutes, then peel it off. I'm able to mostly peel off the mask in large layers but there are some areas where I have to gently scratch my skin to get the whole mask off. I've learned the peeling process works better when you make sure your face is completely covered with the gel to begin with, rather than in big spots. When stripping the mask, it looks like dead skin or a bad sunburn flaking off. Once the mask is completely removed from your face, the final step is to rinse your face with water.

I have dull, damaged skin and wear makeup often so I'm impressed that the peel-off mask makes my skin feel super clean and firm. I can see visual results that are assuring and efficient.

Finally Got To Kayak on the River



As a surprise Mother's Day gift, my husband purchased me a kayak.  My friend's husband did the same. #Twinsies

Hubby kayaked with me the first time but his was a rental. Trying to talk him into buying his own.


We had to wait for COVID restrictions to be somewhat lifted and for decent weather, but we finally got the kayaks out on the river.  We've been twice now and I've absolutely loved it.  It's definitely something I can see doing often this summer.


Chester Chipmunk Will Not Sleep - Children's Book Review


Book Overview:

Released January 22, 2020

Chester Chipmunk will not sleep!

It's bedtime in the nook of Cherry Hill, but Chester Chipmunk just can't sleep! He's had too much fun playing today, and he isn't ready to stop now. Good thing Mom knows a trick or two to help change his mind! Join Mama Chipmunk and Chester on a whimsical journey to discover all the many adventures that await in his dreams!


My Review:

A bedtime story told in rhythmic form, Chester Chipmunk Will Not Sleep tells of an imaginative chipmunk who has a hard time falling asleep because there's still so much left to do.  His mother talks to him about how Chester can still use his imagination, only in his dreams.  After all, he may dream about bowling with baboons or seeing a tiger with no stripes.  

This short bedtime story is very creative with words and may even entice your little one to sleep!
