Review of The Light Keepers

Brief Summary: In "The Light Keepers"  by Mande Matthews the reader is introduced to Astrid and her strange powers and story.


Long Review: Astrid's whole life has been spent running. Her mother and her mother's protector have been trying to keep her safe. Her mother has been trying to teach her to speak. While her mother's protector has been teaching her to fight. The book introduces the character and illuminates the reader to the struggles Astrid will come to face in following books. 

The book is written as a prequel. I found the story bland and strange. There is not much detail as to why she is so special and this makes the book hard to keep coming back to the book. The antagonist in the story is semi-interesting as she encounters him  not in the world she is in. The story just wasn't strong enough to pull me in and this will not be a series I will continue to read.

Rating: 2.5/5

Color Street Review!

First I am sure you are asking yourself, "what is Color Street?". Color Street is 100% nail polish strips. They are a base, color, and top coat all in one and can be applied with no tools. The strips are very easy to apply and even a child can apply them! 

I was introduced to them by someone I used to work with at Devon. Now I haven't been one in the past to do my nails. I mostly haven't done them because applying nail polish and waiting for it to dry takes so much time. I am very bad at applying polish to my non-dominate hand as well. Color Street solves these problems and they have very cute designs! 


I decided to start selling them because of a few reasons. First, the nail polish is so easy to apply. Second, it will be nice to have a little extra income. Third, I think it is good to have something else to work on to continue learning and developing myself as a person. Color Street helps me feel like I am contributing financially to the family! Fourth, the buy in cost is low and we are encouraged to keep our inventory low and have our clients order directly from our website.

Here is a short video of me applying my nails:

Review of Born to Eat by Leslie Schilling and Wendy Jo Peterson

Brief Summary: "Born to Eat"  lays out how easy baby led weaning can be for the whole family. 


Long Review: Baby-led weaning (BLW) is introduced in this book but nutrition for the entire family is also covered. The book reminds the reader how a child mimics what they see and to be a good example for a new eater. The safety of baby-led weaning is addressed, and how to discuss with your pediatrician your decision to follow BLW. The book covers in detail how to cook foods for different stages of eating. I especially appreciated the examples of meals covered in the book. I look forward to cooking the meals and starting Miss A on food with BLW from Born to Eat!

Rating: 4.7/5
