TRIA Hair Removal Laser

TRIA Hair Removal Laser Review!

Month 6 with the TRIA
Well this is supposed to be the end of my TRIA Hair Removal Laser Review. I have fallen in love with the TRIA. My legs are not completely hair free yet but they are dang close. I think I have may be 20 hairs left on each leg and that could just be because I misses spots when I was treating my legs with the TRIA. It does take some time to use because the head is so small and it doesn't work well on light hair. But the company said that it only worked on dark colored hair so I didn't really expect it to do much for the light hair. The little bit of hair that is remaining is much much finer and and grows very very slow. I no longer have trouble with ingrown hairs and only have to touch up a few spots on my leg about once a month or so when the hair finally grows back. I do wish the battery lasted a bit longer so that I could do both legs in one setting on a higher setting. Over all the results were satisfactory and I am very happy with the TRIA Hair Removal Laser its a product I would buy and I believe its well worth its money.

If you would like to see my 6 month Up date on the how the TRIA worked for me please check out the Tab at the top of my Blog.

This is week two of using ABCmouse.com for my 2 and 4 year old. Set up was quick and easy took me all of may be 15 minutes to get it set up and another 10 to get both users set up for the girls. I did some clicking around on the site I love that they can either follow the learning path or I can select what I would like them to do.
Snoopy loves it she is flying through the learning path. Since she is just getting a handle on her ABC's I started her off in the Preschool learning path level 1. She has completed 32% of the level one learning path. I think she loves the songs and the bubble game the best. I am looking forward to seeing her progress with it over the next couple months.

The HotRod Princess is on level  6 and has completed 53% of it in 2 weeks. I started her out on level 5 but got bored with it too quick It just wasn't challenging enough for her.  So I bumped her up to level 6 which is the last level available on abcmouse.com. She is a quick learner and tends to get board if she is not challenged enough. We are on lesson 39 as of today and we are starting to get into some new curriculum that she is unfamiliar with. She seems to enjoy most of the activities that they are offering her and is starting to get challenged. She does however get frustrated with the coloring pages. Its too simple for her and she clams its for baby's. She did get a math color page yesterday that required her to add two single digit numbers to figure out what color went where in the picture. She liked this coloring page much better than she did the basic ones where it doesn't require you to do anything other than just click the color you want and put it where you want.

We did have a minor technical issue with ABCmouse.com we had an activity on the lesson lock up and it would not show that the Hotrod Princess had completed the activity. I used the ABCmouse.com on line live help and they had issue solved in about 5 minutes. It was great customer service and I am thrilled that I did not have to call or email them and wait for a reply. So far we are liking ABCmouse.com and my girls have began to sing ABCmouse.com every time the site loads.

Wonder Gel Sof-Pillow

This week I am featuring the Sof-Pillow by Wonder Gel. http://www.wondergel.com 
Wonder Gel uses a special Column-buckling Gel. It is a cushioning surface that enables pressure redistribution and equalization through a pressure 'threshold' technology comprising hollow columns in a unique elastic gel. This patented column-buckling gel technology has been used for over 15 years in therapeutic care of advanced critical care hospital patients. After it was clinically shown to heal pressure sores, this Column-Buckling Gel technology has been used in Intensive Care Units, Burn Centers and Critical Care Units in the best hospitals all around the world.

I revieved the Wonder Gel Sof-Pillow to review this month. Its a Multi-purpose pillow that provides unsurpassed comfort. 

  • Perfect for sleeping and relaxing and positioning
  • Unique shape provides optimal lumbar, leg, and neck support
  • Ultimate home or travel pillow – goes anywhere you go
It sells for $29.99 and you can find it hear http://www.wondergel.com/products.html.  There is a limited supply of the Sof-pillow so they are only available while supplies last.

I had never even seen a Gel Pillow before the Sof-Pillow landed on my door step. The first thing I want to talk about is super soft ultra plush pillow case that stays cool on your skin. It really does stay cooler than the average pillow case and it feels so soft on my skin. The Sof-Pillow its a curved pillow that has a very high quality polyurethane foam core and the Wonder gel surrounds it. The gel feel amazing. The Wonder Gel is flexible and molds to your body when you put pressure on it. I tried it out as a regular pillow the first night but found it to be a bit to small and the curve is a bit too much for me to sleep on all night. So the next night I used it as sleep position-er for my leg as my lower back was hurting.  It worked great for a sleep position-er and was very comfortable. I decided to try it out as a lumbar support while I write my reviews. I am actually using the Sof-Pillow right now and I am in love, it gives my lower back the perfect amount of support. In the car on the couch at the kitchen table while the Girls are Home Schooling. I love that the Sof-Gel pillow stays so much cooler than the average pillow it doesn't get hot and sticky.
Its a great little positioning pillow that I would love for everyone to check out.

I got a great opportunity to review the Show and Tell BIBLE DVD's Its a two part set and the company even offers activity books and printable coloring pages. 

Volume 1 the books of Moses recommended ages 3-adult. 

Do you have little kids?  Ages 3 through 12?  Most picture Bibles have lots of words and not many pictures. We've reversed that. We have lots of pictures and not many words. Kids love it.
Consider this your digital-age flannelgraph, complete with 650 pictures, maps, charts, and timelines. Just use the pause button! A simple narration makes it easy for kids to understand. Maps have animation to show the routes traveled. Kids love to watch again and again.
Multiple narrators. Based on the American Standard Version of 1901. Narrated and Subtitled in English & Spanish
2 hours long/color, Not rated, NTSC, Recommended: children age 3 through adult.

The Holy Bible is not written like a movie. Therefore, this is not a movie--which requires words to be added to "fill in" the story. This covers every story and every book, and all of every story. A new picture every 8-10 seconds glues the kids to it. They can watch and learn on their own.
Multiple narrators. Based on the American Standard Version of 1901. Narrated and Subtitled in English & Spanish
3 hours long Not rated NTSC  
 Price $17.99 Activity book $3.99 Free Shipping to the USA!
We are taking our time with both DVDs and talking about as much of it as we can. Some thing my girls just don't understand because of there age. The hotrod princess understands more of it than snoopy does. So we get in a little more discussion in. They love seeing all the pictures and ask lots of questions. I really like that I can expose them to bible study so early on even if they are not understanding all of it they are still picking up little things and that is important to me.

The illustrations in these DVDs are amazing. They are vibrant and colorful just what kids love right. I also love that the illustrations are done by artist in a variety of ages, ranging from 10 years old to 70 years old. They come from all over the USA and work very hard to bring us these wonderful DVD's. The artist spend a lot of time studying the Bible to be sure they get the illustrations accurate. The Show and Tell Bible DVD's have become a favorite part of our weekly Bible study. I love the activity books they offer a great review for the DvD lessons and make a wonderful bible study building block. 

Show and Tell Bible also offers printable coloring books for $2.00 and they have between 45 and 50 pages and they have 5 different coloring books available. They are prefect for the younger kids not yet ready for the activity books.
