Dino Lingo Language learning programs for kids
*I saw this video complimentary through Influenster*
Dino Lingo is an interactive language learning program for babies and kids. It is as easy as child’s play and works like magic. Dino Lingo is ideal to foster toddler’s cognitive development. .After watching these videos several times, most babies and small children can easily name everyday objects and understand basic phrases in foreign languages. Adorable dinosaurs introduce the most common 200 words in target language. This language set consists of 5 DVDs/Episodes: animals, shapes, numbers, verbs, greetings and nouns. Available in over 20 languages. You can order videos through their website: http://dinolingo.com/languages/free_lesson.html
Thanks to Influenster, I got to watch a Language learning programs for kids. It was a short 3 minute clip. I saw the Italian for Kids greetings and animals video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kmj3PQBtEU). I really liked the clip. The clip starts off with two dinosaurs who greet each other in Italian (ciao!) and then there are pictures of animals (animali). I learned how to say cat„ dog, bird, and fish in Italian. The clip was fun to watch and the words were repeated a lot so I didn’t forget them. Repetition certainly helps me to remember words and seeing pictures of each animal helped me associate each word with that animal. I think that this is a very good program for children (and adults) who want to learn another language.

I really liked how well the pins worked for me. I always have wanted to make a bun but never could. With these spin pins, it makes it so much easier for me! I can also play around with different styles. The package was a little hard to open I thought but the pins are amazing so it was worth it.

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact Review
Asa here! I will be reviewing NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact that I got in my Beauty Blogger Voxbox from Influenster! I received the product complimentary and for the purpose to review it. I got this for free but that in no way affects my review. I will be completely honest in ALL of my posts.
The product description is as follows: Straight from the city that never sleeps, NYC New York Color offers products with uptown style at down-to-earth prices, from $.99 - $4.99. The energy, style, and color of New York City shines through the wide range of shades, textures and innovative products. NYC always delivers the most on-trend products & shades hot off the runway! NYC New York Color’s all-in-one compact gives you everything you need for a complete eye look: primer, illuminator, applicator and complementing shadows. With four vibrant colors designed for your eye color, you can create a look as individual as you are! Availible at drugstores such as CVS, Rite Aid, and also on the NYC website: http://newyorkcolor.com/
Here are some pics (review is after pics):
Swatches without flash: First without primer and with primer
Swatches with flash: First without primer and with primer
You can really see how the black eyeshadow is super- shimmery in the pictures above and are less shimmery than the black but they still sparkle. The primer does its job to make the colors stand out more as you can see from the swatches. More on the primer later.
I like the colors in this palette and they are buildable. You can put on the colors as lightly or darkly as you want. The colors are not chalky and there is not a lot of fallout, actually. I think the color payoff is really good for the price of these palettes. My favorite is the gray all over lid shade.
The primer does its job but it is not my favorite because my eyelids are oily so I felt like the primer wasn’t as good as other primers (like the Urban Decay Primer Potion). But for the price of $4.99, it is good. The illuminator was a cream form of the white eyeshadow.
Tips: You can use the black shadow here as an eyeliner if you wet your brush a bit. The applicators in palettes I never use because they aren’t that good so I use an eyeshadow brush.
I give this a B+
Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle Review
Hello guys! Asa here! I’m am going to review the Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle here that I got in my Beauty Blogger VoxBox!
Mini but Mighty! Our Mini Candles provide an amazing fragrance experience exclusively developed and tested by our team of Home Fragrance experts, including the world’s best master perfumers. Now in an elegant glass container, these are the perfect size for trialing all our fall home fragrances! Mini Candles burn approximately 15 hours. You can buy them in Bath and body Works Stores nationwide or from http://www.bathandbodyworks.com
The scented candle I got was Cider Lane. It’s described as As sweet as the trip to the local apple orchard each year, a delicious fall blend of mulled cider, warm caramel and sweet cinnamon.
Here are some pictures:
First of all the smell is amazing. I have the Cider Lane candle and let me tell you, it smells just like the way it is supposed to. I can smell apples strongly in this and caramel and then I get hints of cinnamon. The smell is so comforting to me because of the caramel smells (which for some reason I associate with home). Long after blowing out the candle, the smell still lingered. I also really like the glass containers they come in; I just think it is so adorable. After the candle is done, you can reuse the glass jars. I will admit these candles are a bit pricey so I suggest what you do is wait for a sale and use coupons and the like and they become affordable.
Beauty Blogger VoxBox
Hi all! Asa here and I hope you are all safe and secure after Hurricane Sandy. Living in NYC, I too felt the storm and actually lost power, heat, water but I am getting all of these back!
I am so excited to blog about the Beauty Blogger VoxBox from Influenster. Over the next week or so I will give my honest reviews about the products I got in my box. Below are some pictures for all of you to look at.
Hey guys! Asa here,
I have all of my invites left for Influenster’s program so send me your email address and I will invite you!
It’s a great program guys!
LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer™ Review
Created with pure Swedish beeswax, organic shea butter and vitamins A and E for long-lasting, deep-penetrating moisture and lip care protection. LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer™ helps moisturize, soften and protect your lips naturally. The unique one-hand slide allows for quick application. And, the oversize application tip ensures this ultra- light formula spreads evenly for better lip coverage.
• Fresh minty flavor.
• Not tested on animals!
Find LypSyl at Drugstore.com, Walmart, Walgreens, and Rite Aid. http://www.lypsylhome.com/
I obtained LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer™ complimentary through Influenster in the Naturals VoxBox. This however does not in any way affect my opinion of the product. This review is completely honest, and my own.
The first thing I love about this lip balm is that it last literally ALL DAY. I didn’t need to keep applying it but I did because it feels so nice and smells amazing!
I also love love love the packaging. It is the cutest thing ever. First of all it comes in an adorable package. The tube shape is not circular but instead it’s oval which I really liked because it didn’t roll away from me like other round lip balms do.
And then there is an adorable bee slider to slide up the lip balm. It was so cute.
This lip balm is so effective at moisturizing my lips and it lasts all day which I’ve never experienced with a lip balm before. I also love that the ingredients are things I can actually pronounce and are familiar to me. Also the shea butter in this lip balm is ORGANIC. And guess how much this balm costs?
It’s such a good price for an amazing lip balm!
Needless to say I will be buying this again.
This gets an A+
The Original™ Dish Drying Mat
I obtained The Original™ Dish Drying Mat complimentary through Influenster in the Naturals VoxBox. This however does not in any way affect my opinion of the product. This review is completely honest, and my own.
The new solution to the age old tradition of placing dish towels on the counter when hand washing pots, pans, dishes and glassware. Hand washing dishes uses less water than conventional automated dish washers. Using the dish drying mat also conserves energy by allowing dishes to air dry. http://www.the-original-co.com/default.html
I liked this product a lot because it works and it is inexpensive. In my household, we air dry dishes but the counter gets wet and it is very annoying to use paper towels all the time. With the Dish Drying Mat, the water was absorbed and it was less messy. My mom also loved this product and I will definitely be buying her one from Bed Bath and Beyond! The thing I liked about this was that it could be machine washed. This did not even take up room in the kitchen because it was foldable. This is truly a miracle for the kitchen!
