Dolphin Tale 2 Movie Promo Pack #Giveaway #DolphinTale2 #HomeschoolDay2014 #WinterHasHope

*I received information and a promo pack via  Flyby Promotions for purposes of review, however all opinions expressed are my own. 

Check it Out!  As a homeschool mom and teacher I am always looking for new curriculum and lessons to add to our homeschool experience. I recently got the opportunity to check out the Dolphin Tale 2 movie curriculum and we can't wait to see the movie!  I am excited to share it with you all today, it is Homeschool Day 2014 after all!
If you are not familiar with Dolphin Tale 2, here is a little about the movie. 

Inspired by true events, Dolphin Tale 2  continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery—thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail—made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie “Dolphin Tale.” This film reunites the entire main cast, led by Harry Connick Jr., Oscar winner Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, and of course, the remarkable dolphin Winter as herself. Champion surfer Bethany Hamilton, who has been an example of courage, also appears in the film.

It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett, rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy, who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only pool mate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins’ social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.

I really love how easy and engaging this curriculum is.  You will get to know the Dolphin and how it lives.  You will also learn about aquarium life and how dolphins relate to us as humans.  It's fun, it's got videos and your kids are gonna love it!  Head over to to get more info and access the curriculum.

Product Review: Helping Hand #helpinghand

*I received this product for free for purposes of review, however all opinions are my own.

Check it Out!  Who doesn't need a helping hand sometimes?  I know I do! I recently experienced a little fender bender while messing with my phone in the car. Fortunately the damage was very minor but I have learned my lesson. No more digging around looking for it.  I needed somewhere to put it each time I get in the car.
Thanks to I-Stand, Inc I now have the solution to my problem. It's called the Helping Hand.    

The Helping Hand is a uniquely designed product that will hold your phone or tablet securely in place. Made from ABS plastic the heavy duty base comes with a washable sticky pad. The base is sturdy and fits just about anywhere, including the car!  It can be used in so many situations and can even be used to help make a video. Just turn the Helping Hand on it's side and stick the phone to it. You can now film without having to hold the phone and it's a nice stable base.  

I really love this product and I found so many places to use it!  In the kitchen and bathrooms, great for keeping the phone up off the counter and out of danger of water and other messes.  In the craft room, laundry room and even outside!  It keeps the phone propped up so you can see it and even use it.  The sticky pad is amazing too!  It's super sticky but it's not messy sticky.  The whole product is easy to clean. And with no movable or breakable parts, it's super tough and easy to move around.
The Helping Hand is available in black or white and would make a great gift idea!
You can head over to Amazon HERE to get more info and order for yourself. You can also check them out on Facebook.

Product Review: #GreenSmoke Electronic Cigarette

*I received the product in this post for free.  All opinions expressed are my own.

Check it Out!  I have been trying for years to get the hubby to stop smoking. He is already sick and smoking doesn't help at all!  But if you know someone who smokes and has smoked for a long time, you know it's not an easy habit to break.  Being under a lot of stress also makes quitting harder.  I found out quite a while back about e-cigs and I have gotten the hubs to try a few different ones.  If you didn't know, there are a ton of different brands out now.  I recently got the Green Smoke Electronic Cigarette to review and as the person who buys and keeps up with everything for him, I was immediately impressed. Green Smoke has thought of everything!   

Here is the package I received via Green Smoke. It included the Pro Starter Kit.  I have never seen such a comprehensive e-cigarette kit before.  This has everything you need to get started and to keep you on track. 

With electronic cigarettes from Green Smoke, you get to choose your nicotine level.  It gives off thick, rich vapors and has a variety of flavors.  The hubby really liked how easy it is to use and how quick it is to recharge it.  The kit came with the charger that is easy to use.  Hubby likes the classic tobacco flavors and found this to be an effective alternative to smoking regular cigarettes.  
There are so many places that do not allow smoking on the premises so having a reliable e-cigarette allows him to get the nicotine fix without getting into trouble! I really like that it is no odor and no mess.  No ashes, no butts left over and no nasty ash tray.  Hubby is looking forwards to trying the different flavors and settling on his faves and then gradually reducing the nicotine level to get to the point where he is at the 0% nicotine level.
You can head over to to check out how these electronic cigarettes work and their lower kit prices.  You can learn about the different nicotine levels and see all the options that are available.

Product Review: Rtgs 20 Micro LEDs String Lights #rtgsproducts

*I received this product for free.  All opinions expressed are my own.

Check it Out!  I love crafting and I love adding new elements to my crafting.  Elements like sounds and light. Discovering new ways to incorporate them is a challenge that I enjoy.  I recently got a really interesting product via Tomoson that is really brightening up my projects!  
I received some Rtgs Micro LED Battery Operated String Lights.  And these are unlike any string lights you have seen before!  Gone are the big bulky bulbs that are frustrating and not very attractive.  These lights are very thin but intensely bright.  The 20 very small LED bulbs are about the size of a grain of rice and they have a steady 360 degree viewing angle that illuminates in every direction. This strand is made from wire so it is bendable!
What I love is that they are battery powered.  This allows me to use these lights in a multitude of ways that you just can't with ordinary strand lights.  The small battery pack that powers the Rtgs Micro LED bulbs is easily hidden making it easy to outline picture frames and even put under a cabinet to create a back light.
I experimented with my light strand to see how many different ways I could use them.  After realizing there are so many ways I now know I need more! 

One of my first ideas was to add them to the inside of this really beautiful potpourri dish that I have.  This dish sits on my buffet table in the dining room and other than being beautiful it is a little boring.

I simply placed the battery pack in the center of the bowl, added some glass stones to cover it and arranged the strand to fill the inside of the bowl.  

I absolutely love the blue color that these lights emit. When used with new batteries they will last for over 48 hours and that makes them perfect for night lights!  Night lights of all shapes and sizes!  

I also created this fun and functional Flashlight Night Light using my Rtgs Micro LED String Lights and a Pringles can.  You can check it out and see how I made it at  This craft is featured on The Brand Connection website this week!  
You can get more information on these and all the fantastic products that Rtgs Products sell on their website at  I can't wait to try these lights in some more projects!
