I use my cellphone for everything, so it s important to me that I have a phone that can t handle both my blogger life and my personal life.

So, when the time came for me to try the Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport, I jumped at the opportunity to put their newest phone to the test.

This week the boychild is heading to First Grade, while it s an exciting time, I m sure it s also a scary time. He s starting a new school and is officially in his first big boy classroom. In his new school he will be meeting kids of different races and ethnicities. One thing I want to teach him is to be kind and accept people the way that they are. The older he gets, the more vocal he becomes, he is quick to call out people who look different. On one hand, I realize he is just an inquisitive child but on Read MoreNetflix Report: Promoting Kindness and Acceptance is a post from: Swa-Rai

Last month, I received a new product for review from the Honey Pot. Basically, it s a feminine wash that is designed to help restore/maintain pH balance and keep bad bacteria and candida in check. The Lavender feminine wash is made with organic plant-based ingredients to provide a gentle cleaning experience.
