Marshmallow Soap Company Review




Are you tired of the same old soap? Are you looking for a unique product to offer your clients, customers, or guests? Marshmallow Soap Co. has transformed soap from a necessary, if boring, product, into something that is fun as well as functional. Our floating marshmallow soaps offer the indulgence of a marshmallow without the calories! Our soap squishes, smushes in your hands, and produces a bubbly lather—cleaning hands while inspiring smiles. These adorable floating soaps dry after use, allowing you to enjoy them again and again.

Eco Friendly - Cruelty Free - Vegetable Derived No Paraben, Phthalate, Nitro Musk and No Allura Red - FDandC Red 40

My Review

Loved these! They are "different" if you have not used a natural soap in the past, but they leave your skin feeling silky after you dry. Natural soap is rich in natural butter and oils which need to naturally absorb into the skin and dry to feel the real softness they lend to the skin. I thought these soaps were the cutest things and loved how they made my skin feel. It really is a unique experience - and one you have to feel for yourself!

The Illuminator Series Article #4: What Does Good Character Look Like?

I want to share some thoughts with you today on Character.




What does a person of good character look like? They have integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, and moral courage.

Sometimes, people who LACK character will tell you things that are truthful because they actually want to hurt you! A person of good character may not always say the things you want to hear, either. But they will be honest and tell you the truth in LOVE because they actually care about you. Really listen to what people are saying to you and the motives behind it.

Think about the people in your life. Think about the people you surround yourself with - friends, acquaintances, leadership. Think about how, overall, they care for you - or don't.

Pray for them. Pray that they would continue (or start) down the road of good character.

Pray for yourself. Pray that your insecurities and sensitivities from the past would get out of the way and enable you to see who has true character and who does not. Listen to those with good character and stick close to them - you will be surprised at how much you learn! It will be evident to you that a person of good character wants you to succeed in life and your personal development.

Most of all, you will find out Who people of good character follow. Who do they strive to be like? Who do they try to imitate? Take a look at Who THAT person is and you will find out how to recognize (and have) good character, too.

“And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1

“A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.” Luke 6:40

“…Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:25-28

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

French for Kids: On Va Jouer (Let's Play)(DVD) Review #OnVaJouer




French DVD for Kids

On va chanter! (Let's sing!) On va danser! (Let's dance!) On va jouer! (Let's play!) This interactive French immersion program is non-stop language-learning fun. With the help of Fritzi the mouse and a playful group of peers, Marie introduces vocabulary related to different parts of the body. And what better way to get those body parts moving than with delightful sing-along, dance-along songs, including"Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and familiar French folksongs with exciting new twists. From le chapeau (the hat) to la chaussure (the shoe), kids will love trying on their new French vocabulary for clothes in playful, interactive skits. On Va Jouer entertainingly combines colorful illustrated backgrounds, live- action, and 2-D and 3-D animation. Friendly characters and abundant humor make learning a new language as much fun as play time. Vous êtes prêts? (Are you ready?) On va jouer!


This DVD includes an easy-to-use translation guide for parents and teachers who are first time learners of French, as well as French subtitles. Designed for children ages 1-7, On Va Jouer is fun for all ages!

My Review

My four year old is very advanced in his reading, so when we turned the sub titles on this DVD became a lot easier for him to follow along. This DVD is entirely in french, but the host is very expressive so it works for all ages. We love the songs and there is an insert in the DVD case that includes the translations for words used. Overall, a really great french starter tool that really engages our child.

Argan + Coconut + Jojoba Oil Hair Treatment + Elixir #review #arganoilhairtreatment



Product Description

Our Argan Oil Hair Treatment formula is very unique and unlike others in the market.

It can be used as a leave in conditioner or as a heat and damage protectant. There are no chemicals in this formula. It's made from 100% plant oils. Besides argan oil, this unique hair treatment formula is compromised of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil and Grapeseed Oil to name a few.

It's perfect for restoring that shine & luster that's lost over time. This needs to be part of your daily / weekly hair regiment! You DO NOT want to miss out on this.

My Review

A drop of this oil goes a long way to making hair soft and shiny. Used as a deep conditioner, or to help with split ends and fly aways, this product does the trick. If you have an oily scalp I would recommend not using more than a drop. This is a great product, came in a timely manner and received no damage during transit!
