Recently, I've found two new authors that I'm not sure I would have had it not been for blogging.
The first author is Deirdre Carey. Her book, Hope, Faith & Charlie is about her sons courageous (miraculous, really) battle with a rare form of brain cancer. Despite enduring Stage Four brain cancer and undergoing 21 months of chemotheraphy AND six surgeries, Charlie battled his cancer out.......and smiled through it all. This is about Charlie but really about the "blessings that happened along the way". Really touching. You can find this book on Amazon.com or http://www.hopefaithandcharlie.com/.
Susan M. Heim has been published multiple times. An editor by trade, Heim has twins like me. And writes about them. I especially appreciate her book, "It's Twins: Parent-to-Parent Advice from Infancy Through Adolescence". I did a lot of head nodding when I read this book. Each section has some practical advice/information, true stories, tips, and trivia. This is a great book to consider if you have twins or know of someone that is having twins.
The clean freak in me couldn't resist trying out this new garbage disposal cleaning product. Their claim that "Disposer Care® plus Bleach Alternative is the only disposer cleaner to disinfect and foam away 99 percent of the disease-causing grunge while leaving behind a pleasant smell" lured me in hook, line and sinker. You can find them through the Summit Brands website. They even have a cool Store Locator feature where by you can find the store nearest you to purchase them.
I always like trying out new skin care products, and I was introduced to two this month. The first is the "Skin Smoothing Cleanser" in the Kinerase line by Skin Care Rx. It's hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and suitable for all skin types. I like that it is foamy and very mild.
Lastly, I wanted to draw your attention to a product by Lexli. Being a Buzz agent has been great as I've been exposed to products I might not have otherwise, like AloeGlyC. Lexli sent me their AloeGlyC Renewing Exfoliant, and I'm really, really liking what it's done for my skin. AloeGlyC exfoliates and rejuvenates your skin in one step. A combination of Aloe Vera, Glycolic Acid and Vitamin C removes dead skin while moisturizing the skin. I really have noticed an improvement in my skin as a result of using AloeGlyC and reminds me of the results of having microdermabrasion done. Aloe GlyC is available online at lexli.com, exclusively.
