RingSkin to the rescue! Great invention to protect your ring!


Are you worried about dinging your ring when you go to the gym? RingSkin is the answer!

Your wedding ring is the thing you cherish the most.   Unfortunately, rings often get scratched from the wear and tear of everyday life- hitting it on clunky weights at the gym, playing with the kids at the playground,  gardening and other” hands on” activities.  But leaving your most important piece of jewelry off your finger and in a drawer or gym locker isn’t the answer!  Not to worry, RingSkin is here!  RingSkin is the ultimate ring protector that guards your valuable jewelry while working out or participating in activities that might scratch your ring.  This patent pending cover stretches around your ring and accommodates various stone settings.  It is lightweight and clear so it is never covered up-just protected! Now you can participate in any activity without the worry of scratching your ring or loosening side stones.   RingSkin allows you to keep your ring in perfect condition and in its rightful place- on your finger.



I received a sample and was quite surprised to see how well this product works.  It really is lightweight and clear and not heavy, like I expected.  It’s a great product and I recommend! 

“Mompreneur” Ginny Pennell created RingSkin after she and her now husband got engaged.  She wanted to show off her ring to the girls in her Bodypump™ class but didn’t want the ring to get damaged or leave it in her locker.  This sparked an idea, to create a discreet, effective ring cover for her ring that would allow her to keep it on even during working out without it getting dinged.  After months of working with prototypers, designers and manufacturers, RingSkin was launched.  RingSkin is proudly made in the USA.  RingSkin is $19.99 and can be purchased at

New read-along books & app for children! This one is a Must-Have app for the school year!


It’s back-to-school time and it is a time to make reading more fun for younger kids! Children everywhere are absorbed in electronics, giving a little respite to parents. Unfortunately, those little moments of peace can come with a lot of guilt of too much technology or worry children are accidentally accessing inappropriate content.  Well now, parents can take a well-deserved break without the nagging guilt with two new read-along books for the Baby’sBrilliant app. Each book provides wholesome, educational content to children so you can stop worrying about handing over your smartphone. The Baby’s Brilliant app is available for FREE download on the iTunes store .

I checked out the Baby’s Brilliant app and I highly recommend! it’s engaging, fun and I think that children ages 5-8 will really like it. Parents will approve too! I really think that there is a great variety of read-along stories like my two favorites below:

unnamed (1)      unnamed (1)

I received both of these books in paperback and the stories are delightful! Even my 11-year-old son had to check them out because he loves dogs. He gave these two a thumbs up for younger kids. The story is engaging and the illustrations are delightful. Children will love Nigel The Pug!

Children can meet Nigel the Pug, an adorable pup that your young ones will want to hug and cuddle immediately. Your son or daughter will hang on every word as they are taken on a sweet journey with this loveable pug who will delight and entertain your little ones.

A Huggly-Wuggly-Pug is another sweet book about a cute pug who goes about his day looking for Huggly-Wuggly hugs. Children will laugh as they read about the fun mischief this dog gets into — watch out they don’t leave their shoes around or there they might be chewed by this adorable dog!

Both books are part the Baby’s Brilliant new read-along series that offers books in a video format. Available through the newBaby’s Brilliant app — that also features music, books, night lights and interactive soundboards — the stories are narrated by a mother of two, lightly orchestrated and presented at a comfortable pace for children to enjoy.


As an additional service, Baby’s Brilliant offers parents on the road, grandparents in another town or loved ones who don’t live nearby, the ability to record their own voice reading the story. For a small fee, the Baby’s Brilliant team will edit their voice into the presentation. This is perfect for the upcoming holiday season – and a heartwarming gift for any child with a family member who is in the military or away from home.


Both pug books are available for $.99 (Kindle Edition) or $7.00 (paperback) at

Baby’s Brilliant’s first read-along Bible Study book will be coming soon.
