Parragon Books August Review







I am back again this month to tell you all the great books we got from Parragon Books they have a wide variety of books for children of all ages. My Children love their books. The first book we got this month was the Peek-A-Book this book is so cute and the kid's love looking at it. They have holes to peek through and shapes to look over. In this book there is a cat and dog and my daughter choose the cat and my son the dog they just love this book.


All the pages are so colorful and the kid's enjoyed looking through all the pages. 



This book retails for $9.99


With holes to peek through and shapes to peep over, join this cat and dog in their playful, peek-a-boo romp through the pages.
For a long, long time, everyone has known that dogs and cats just don’t get along. Dogs want to play. Cats want to sleep. Dogs want to chase. Cats want to run and hide! One little cat knows all this very well. So she runs ... into a book where she eats a little bear’s porridge, through a story where she circles round and round and down a beanstalk, and through so many more favorite fairy tales and rhymes. And, of course, a dog chases her! But what will happen when he finally catches up? Written by award-winning author Malachy Doyle, this new picture book encourages interactive reading, a love of books, and an excitement for sharing stories.

The next book is the Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy Cat this book is so cute Jordyn loved it a lot and now that she is in kindergarten they are starting to learn to read. So she is really interested in trying to read books and this book was perfect for her to start out with.



My daughter started liking owls so this book she was really into. And the pussy cat in the book is really cute too. The kids wanted to dress up too.

This book also retails for $9.99





Join two curious children on a quirky adventure, based on the classic Edward Lear poem, The Owl and the Pussycat. 
Illustrated by Charlotte Cooke, also known for Sunshine and Snowballs & Wish Upon a Dream, this exciting adventure tale will inspire the imaginations of children and adults alike.




  
The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea, In a box on the living room floor, They sailed away for a year and a day And these are the things that they saw.



Also another thing we got was the Paris Weekly Planner. My daughter loved this however I think I might use this one for myself I think right now she doesn't really understand the concept of writing and planning stuff out but I will love to use this. I am one who plans out everything and even if my phone has a notepad I like to do it the old fashion way. 



This organizational gem of a planner offers 52 sheets on a tear-off pad. The design includes the days of the week, plus an additional free space for things to do, making planning your weekly tasks a breeze.  Also included are over 200 sticky notes.



Retails for $8.99

Now doesn't that sound like a win win situation?? Who can pass this up??

There is a new initiative called Rentback it allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Isn't that awesome?

Here is a little more about "What they really are about"







What about Operation Smile?? Well I can tell you it's a great program that is helping changing the lives of families all around the world. This means a lot to me because I use to be a Dental Assistant and something like this can change everything about that person. Confidence, Open up to more people, and so much more.



Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries.
At Operation Smile, we're more than a charity. We're a mobilized force of international medical professionals and caring hearts. Operation Smile is a pioneer in advocating for the importance of safe surgery in resource poor environments and is the largest surgical charity of its kind, leading research into the causes of cleft lip and cleft palate, and its prevention, treatment and eradication.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. A child with a cleft has twice the odds of dying before their first birthday. Children with cleft conditions who survive may have difficulty eating, speaking, hearing or breathing properly. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford the surgeries they need to live a productive life.
Every child deserves access to safe, quality surgical care. Every child deserves a future filled with hope.
That's where we come in as the largest volunteer-based children's medical charity providing free cleft surgeries. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided 220,000 free surgical procedures for children and young adults. Our work creates a lasting global impact. We train local medical professionals in developing countries and strengthen healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.




As one of the most prominent charities for children in the world, we work in over 60 countries to heal children’s smiles and bring hope for a better future. Together, we are saving children’s lives.
Thanks to the generosity and spirit of volunteerism shown by our supporters, we heal thousands of children per year. With your help, how many lives can we change tomorrow?

Natures True Vitamin D3 Medicine Review



So I wanted to tell you a little about vitamin D3 it is so very important to have in your daily routine. And for me that is important because of my fair skin I am either putting sunscreen or staying out of the sun so I know I am not getting enough vitamin D3. These vitamins are amazing for making sure I get that daily dose of vitamin D3 that I need. 




These make me feel good knowing I am getting my vitamin D3 in regardless of what I am doing. Make sure you look into possibly starting to take D3 you won't be sorry.




Vitamin D3 is a vitamin that is critical to keeping both phosphorus and calcium in balance and being used properly. Dr. Oz suggests that Vitamin D3 is the second most important vitamin you can take. Many people do not get adequate vitamin D3 because they do not spend enough time in the sun. Since this vitamin is so important, you want to look into vitamin D3 supplements to ensure that you are getting enough and getting the right ingredients. It's especially critical that your vitamin d3 does not contain the harmful  and very toxic Magnesium Stearate filler. 

Anthony Norman, MD, in a recent article in Endocrine Today, stated "it is now widely appreciated by vitamin D scientists that 50% of people in North America and Western Europe are vitamin D insufficient. Given that two-thirds of the people are vitamin D-insufficient or deficient. It is clear that merely eating vitamin D-rich foods is not adequate to solve the problem for most adults."

How Much Vitamin D3 Do You Need?
Adult men and women ages 19 to 69 need to get 600 IUs each day and when 70 and over, you need 800 IUs each day, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements. This is only for those with solid levels of this vitamin which a large majority of people do not have. 

  • - Pure, Potent and all Natural Vitamin D3
    - No junky fillers, all of the good none of the bad!!
    - Independent 3rd party lab tested, MADE IN USA
    - 2,000 IU per easy to swallow softgel
    - Money Back Guarantee, 100% safe and effective
    - Guaranteed GMO and Preservative Free

Supplement Facts:
Vitamin D3 as Cholecalciferol
2,000 IU
serving Size: 1 softgel
servings per container: 120

Other ingredients: soybean oil, gelatin, vegetable glycerin, vegetable oil.

Bumped Maternity Review


My Sister is expecting her first child in early November and She has been having trouble fitting into all of her older cloths so when I came across this company Bumped Maternity I was really excited for her to try it. They have everything from dresses, tops, bottoms, outerwear, and so much more. You can shop from brand new items or preowned items whatever you choose all the items are great and are in like new condition.



I love this red dress on her and it's a large from Oh Baby! By Motherhood this is one of her favorite pieces she loves wearing this dress to church and says it's so soft. 




This is from the side the dress size wise fit her perfect with plenty of room to grow. She is on the tall side so it was also the perfect length. 



Add caption

Back


The next piece of clothing we received was the Maternity Skinny Jeans from Old Navy Maternity. She really likes these jeans and says they are comfortable another great item that is in the size 14 so it's a little on the larger side but that just means she has room to grow in them.




I think they look great you can't tell from the photos that they are big they look like they fit perfect. The shorter band around the waste is nice too sometimes it's not always comfortable to have that big band over your belly.



Here is what they look like from the front. They are really cute and very stylish. 



And this is the back side of the pants still very cute but you can see they do look a little bigger in the lower butt area but still how I feel that just means there is more room to grow!!!


Now finally our last piece this is the top she is wearing by Old Navy Maternity. This top is really stylish and cute something you can wear weather you are dressing up or dressing down.




This shirt fit her perfect and she said it was so comfortable. Like I said it can be dressed up or down if you want to wear dress pants and wear it to work or maybe a special occasion or possibly dressing it down and wearing some cut of shorts and flip flops. Whatever way you decide to wear it this top is beautiful. 





Hello and Welcome to our store. Bumped Maternity was born with a mission to offer new and pre-loved maternity apparel at affordable prices, from the comfort and convenience of your home. A little history….. Bumped Maternity was conceived while I was carrying our first child. Pre-pregnancy clothes fit well enough for the first trimester then suddenly there was a bump. My baby bump was exciting to see and touch. It brought concerns too- clothes no longer adjusted to my new shape. Zippers were harder to zip, buttons were harder to button. Leaning back… shifting, pulling… I couldn’t get comfortable. The time had come- I needed maternity clothes. I planned a fun “Mom’s Day Out” to purchase my first maternity apparel- “everyday” clothes and “work appropriate” items. An optimistic launch turned into harsh reality. As I shopped from one store to another, one rack to the next, I got sticker shock. When I found cute clothes that met my needs they carried a hefty price. Really? Really! During my second pregnancy I wore a different size. Oh No! The experience shopping for maternity clothes was the same. I would venture out and come home frustrated with little to show for the hard earned money I spent. The Problem: Pregnancy is a time when your body is changing, you need to be comfortable, you deserve to look cute… even sexy… and you shouldn’t have to pay outrageous prices for clothes you’re going to wear for a very short, but a very important and very special time. The Solution: Bumped Maternity! ... from one bump to another… A store where moms can find pre-loved and new maternity clothes for affordable prices. A place that is comfortable and offers many cute options for the mom-to-be. I hope to bring a comfortable and enjoyable shopping experience where you can find items that fit your style and likes. I am dedicated to my customers and want to provide only the best experience and service possible. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact me at bumpedmaternity@gmail.com. I thank you and congratulate you on your upcoming arrival.



Look how cute the Packaging was.
