It’s time for More Holiday Gift Suggestions!! STL Ocarina, Loving on Me, Boy's Equalizer Skechers,The Clapper, and "Ove" Glove!


Looking for an unique gift for Tea Lovers? We received a sample and this is really different! FOR TEA LOVERS
Mix music and teatime for the holidays with the NEW four seasons Teacarinas – a teacup that doubles as an ocarina. The Teacarina is about 3 inches in diameter. It can play 8 diatonic notes. Retail price is $22; on sale now for $18.  I like that this is a great gift because it’s perfect for those who love Tea but it’s also so unique! I have never seen anything like this ever before!  Check out the website for more information.



Gifts that inspire!

We’ve all seen the gift lists — gifts for dad and mom, for him or her, gifts for teens, techies, green gifts, gifts that give back, and on and on.

But this year your readers can give gifts that INSPIRE, thanks to a new shop at Part of the global empowerment movement Loving on Me, the online shop offers inspirational products that make positive affirmations a part of everyday life. At home, work and anywhere-in-between, the products, such as coffee mugs, t-shirts, pillows, totes and more, shout out powerful phrases that remind women that they are “unstoppable,” “a masterpiece,” “strong, mighty and enough.”

Think of it – with these gifts, you can remind your best friend, daughter, niece, student or mentor just how wonderful they are. By doing so, the giver and the recipient also join the growing Loving on Me movement — now reaching 100 countries and more than 100,000 women each month (@iamlovingonme). Founded in 2012 by non-profit leader and social responsibility pioneer Katrina McGhee, Loving on Me has a unique dual mission – to both inspire individuals AND ignite them into action. Its robust social media community and retail business make inspiration a part of every day life, while its Love in Action philanthropy arm ignites action by supporting global charities through financial contributions and volunteerism.

I received a sample of a Journal, Mug and Tote Bag. All three would make great gifts! I would suggest putting the Journal, Mug into the Tote Bag and also buying and including the above shirt. (See photo above!)

Looking for great shoes for boys? I recommend the Skechers Boys’ Equalizer  Shoes! These are not only stylish but very comfy with Memory Foam insole. I like that they are comfortable for my son to wear. He likes that they are cool!  Check out the Skechers website for more information and to purchase. Retail $50. for this style. There are also many other great styles for everyone on your shopping list!

From  Joseph Enterprises we have the following gift suggestions! These are really great for those who you aren;t sure what to get on your shopping list!  The ‘Ove’ Glove and The Clapper. Both of these items can be found in stores nationwide.

I had fun trying these out. I especially like The ‘Ove’ Glove because it’s great for baking cookies and no more burns!  The Clapper is great for those who like to be able to turn off lights without getting out of bed or off the couch! I know quite a few people that would love this!

Holiday baking without the burns:

Start Singing Again With The Perfect Gifts For The Holidays! “Voice Lessons to Go™” CDs Make the Perfect Stocking Stuffers! Holiday Giveaway Opportunity!


“Voice Lessons To Go,” the acclaimed vocal warm-up CD series that has sold over 100,000 CDs and downloads, has several CDs and downloads that make perfectly unique and memorable holiday gifts. Ariella Vaccarino, creator of Voice Lessons To Go™, guides listeners through a wide range of singing exercises, providing explanations and vocal examples to piano accompaniment.

The “Voice Lessons To Go” collection includes the recently-released “Vocal Repair,” a singing curriculum specifically designed for the tired, over-taxed, and recovering voice. Other CDs include “Voice Lessons To Go: v.1 Vocalize and Breath,” “Voice Lessons To Go: v.2 Do Re Mi Ear and Pitch Training,” “Voice Lessons To Go: v.3 Pure Vowels,” “Voice Lessons To Go: v.4 Stamina,” all of which are for teens and adults. “Sing Out Proud!”, meanwhile, is a popular singing CD for children. The CDs and downloads are available at, iTunes, Amazon, Target, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, Best Buy and other popular e-tailers.

Everyone from karaoke fans to Broadway singers, from novices who don’t want to pay for voice lessons to parents who want a fun CD to entertain kids in the car, can enjoy and learn from Ariella. “Vocal Repair,” for example, is an inexpensive tool to help maintain and recover a healthy voice for singers, actors, teachers, speaker, dancers, and anyone who uses their voice for work or performance. The other CDs in the collection can help singers of all types improve their voice and technique.

“I am very excited to bring these CDs and downloads to singers during this holiday season,” notes Ariella Vaccarino. “It’s about giving unique gifts that are meaningful and special to recipients. Everyone knows somebody who loves to sing, and these lessons are the perfect gift!”

I received samples of Voice Lessons To Go Volume 1-Kids: Sing Out Proud! and also Voice lessons To Go Volume 1: Vocalize and Breath. I have to say I am quite impressed. I am finding that the Kids CD is very helpful with my son. He has some speech issues and our Pediatrician recently recommended Voice/Singing lessons would be helpful. I really am enjoying using this CD during homeschool. It actually helps with breathing and the vocal warm-ups are quite helpful. I really like Vocalize & Breath too but my favorite is the one for just kids.  I highly recommend!
