WW: New Domino's Artisan Pizza

Last week I was lucky enough to win a free Artisan Pizza from Domino's during their Facebook promotion.  Today was the last day to redeem my coupon so the girls and I went for lunch right after school (they had a half day).  Princess A wanted to try the Italian Sausage and Pepper Trio (I ordered it with light banana peppers).  It was so yummy and the staff was so nice.  We ended up staying and eating our pizza right there.  Our new Domino's has 4 small stools and a counter for customers.  The girls really liked the pizza, minus the banana peppers.  They said that we have to bring Daddy next time.  The pizza was delicious but small since it is suppose to serve only two.  It was the perfect amount for the girls and me, but if Daddy had been with us we would of need two pizzas.  Have you tried the new pizzas from Domino's? What did you think?

Review: Natural House Cleaners

My husband does most of the cleaning in our house but I am the one who buys the cleaning supplies.  I am always looking for great cleaners that can do the job more naturally.  I get headaches from many cleaners, the fumes just make me sick which is why my husband handles most of that.  Of course with natural cleaners I could do more of the cleaning since they don't give me headaches but he is so good at it I will let him keep doing the cleaning.  The day after the Natural House cleaner samples arrived I burnt a batch of split pea soup and if you have ever done that you know it reeks.  The whole house just smelled.  I aired the house out two days in a row which really helped.  I kept smelling it in the kitchen though, a strong scent.  I realized that it was the smell of burnt split pea that I poured down my garbage disposal.  I tossed one of the sinky packets down the dispostal, turned on the water briefly and turned on the disposal.  The SMELL was GONE!  I was so happy!  Over the next few days I would still find little patches of burnt split pea scent in the house but I never smelled it from my sink again. I gave the rest of the cleaners, Trashy and Flushy to my husband to use.  I said he really liked them and they worked great.  I noticed that the bathroom and the trash smelled so much better.  The bathroom was missing that strong chemiocal smell and the trash was just not smelly.  In my book they all worked great!   If you would like to find out more information about these natural household cleaning products you can visit their site, facebook page or follow them on twitter.

Review: Elfishki and The Giant Cake iPad Book

We have an iPad and my girls just love using it.  I am always looking for great apps, especially books for them to use on the iPad.  Princess G (and Princess A) love reading (or listening) to books on the iPad and we have quite a collections.  One of their current favorites is Elfishki and The Giant Cake.  The pictures are just so bright and fairish (their word).  I like that the pictures are so detailed, it looks as though it is a very well illustrated book, not just some computer program slapped together.  I asked them why they like Elfishki and The Giant Cake so much and Princess A said "It is a great story about how with friendship you can do great and amazing things.  Plus it is fun to make the cakes!"
In addition to the great story they also have a cake decorating games which my girls play.  They have fun making these very elaborate cakes and sharing with us.  It is a very cute app and I would recommend it  for anyone with little ones, especially little girls.

Review: The Beauty Book (for kids)

Princess A inhales books, so I am constantly trying to find quality books for her to read.  She is only in third grade but reads above a 6th grade level and even eigth grade or higher books on occassion.  My problem is the content of these books.  It is important that she reads books that are not too mature for her.  Princess A also wears glasses which luckily she loves.  She has not experienced any teasing for her glasses or anything else about how she looks.  I know that we might not always be so fortunate.  I know that in our society looks and beauty can sometimes define a person's self worth.  I want my girls to look their best but also not worry or obsess about how they look. 
I like that The Beauty Book talks about beauty and how to talk care of your self but from a point of view that shows you that the inside matters the most.  Princess A loved all of the little beauty tips and Princess A has already started following some of them on her own.  This is a great book for girls age 7 to 12.  Princess A is 9 so she is the perfect age.  Princess G is only 6 and has not shown any interest in the book.  She did like some of the tips her sister shared with her.  My niece is almost 13 but I still think that this book would still be a benefit for her so I will try and see if she will read it.
I reccomend this for any little girl that is headed toward tweens.  The book has great tips for beauty but does not leave the impression that beauty is the most important thing and I love that!

I received this book from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com, a book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
