Steeped Coffee is The Best Coffee in the World!

Posted on November 11, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

I love Steeped Coffee!  It’s absolutely amazing.  It’s the perfect brew with the perfect taste.  I have a single cup coffee maker, and I let the hot water come out, and add the coffee bag.  Steep for 2 minutes, and it’s so refreshing!  I live for this coffee.  I didn’t know it was so amazing, until I tried it.  You’ll feel the same way, I’m sure.

Steeped Coffee comes in so many varieties.  My favorite is the Sunrise Blend.  I get up at 3:30 am.  This blend makes my day fantastic.  I actually enjoy going to work, the mornings I have this blend.  It’s so great to feel this good.

The perfect way to start your day right, Sunrise Blend beautifully balances the subtle complexity of cocoa with hints of fruit peeking through. This washed coffee from the Huila region of Columbia is a mix of Castillo and Caturra varieties, pulling together these delicate layers of dark and light.

My wife’s favorite blend is the California Blend, it’s a little darker and she says it helps her want to do those mommy things.

Classically inspired, the California Blend is sweet, attractive, and offers the promise of an enjoyable experience. Always welcoming, the balanced acidity and chocolaty body are complemented with aromas of dessert-like sweetness and toasted coconut year around.

The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book Review

Posted on November 11, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

I received The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book the other day, and I have to say, these recipes are delightful.  My 25-year-old, daughter, is thrilled with this book.  She loves Harry Potter, and though the book is “Unofficial”, she is absolutely delighted to have been able to try these recipes.

What better way to celebrate your love of Hogwarts and its host of beloved characters than by bringing out your potions cauldron (or cocktail shaker) and mixing up a host of spectacular cocktails? Raise a toast in true wizarding world style with cocktails including: 

  • Golden Poptail Balls 
  • Headmaster’s Lemon Drop
  • Mad-Eye Lychee Martini 
  • Tea Leaf-Reading Earl Grey Cocktail 
  • Boozy Knickerbocker Glory
  • Christmas Party Punch
  • And many more! 

Chapter 1 of The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book tells you about the types of Glassware, and what you really need.  Then, Chapter 2, starts the amazing recipes.  This book has fan-filled recipes, and you’ll be drinking great cocktails for a long time.  I love this book, too.

The Christmas Party Punch will be served at our house this Holiday Season.

What you need:

  • 8 Cups Sparkling Wine
  • 1 1/2 cups Pomegranate Juice
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 Oranges sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish

Get The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book, below, for the rest of the recipes and the tips!

The Dearest Grey has Great Products for Your Toddler

Posted on November 9, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

I was just turned on to The Dearest Grey, and I already love their products.  I love the Teethy Utensil, because my little one won’t get hurt on these spoons.  The mini Bento is amazing for taking food in the diaper bag.

The Mini Bento is a great way to store food.  I can put it in the Bento, and store in the fridge, until we are ready to go somewhere.  Then, I can immediately add to the diaper bag, with no added steps.  This container has saved so much time.  Bento Boxes are FREEZER SAFE, MICROWAVE SAFE, DISHWASHER SAFE.

The Teethy Untensils are amazing.  I love to feed my little guy with these.  They are so convenient, and he won’t get injured.  When using Teethy Utensil an adult should always be present. Never leave your child unattended.

The Dearest Grey has other products as well, these are the two I tried.  They also have a wonderful sale, right now!  Get on over there and make your purchases, while the products are on sale.  It’s really a great sale!

Wash & Whips is Wonderful for the Interior of your Vehicle

Posted on November 5, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

Wash & Whips is a miracle worker.  I had a stain, from my 11-year-old, in my backseat.  With Wash & Whips, I was able to get the stain out.  The Monaco Interior Cleaner is so magnificent.  It works with a powerful kick.  There are only great results.  It pulled out the stain and didn’t leave any marks.  I will live by this blend now.

 

I’ve been detailing vehicles for about 13 years.  The formulas in Wash & Whips are amazing.  I can’t get over how all the stains were removed from my backseat.  I’d think that Wash & Whips was a miracle worker.  Somehow the Monaco Interior Cleaner pulled a stain out from 2 years ago.

The Pit Stop Glass Cleaner is great.  There’s no streaking on the glass.  Usually I have streaks, with leading brands.  This solution is grade A, and a miracle worker.

I love all the products I received from Wash & Whips.  They made my interior look brand new, like the day I brought it home from the Toyota dealership.

The prices are great as well.  There’s even free shipping for a limited time.

With the way the interior products made my truck look, I cannot wait to try the exterior products.  I bet my truck will shine like there’s no tomorrow.

Pen Heaven Products are the Bomb

Posted on November 5, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

I love Pen Heaven.  The products are great.  I’ve never had an issue, and this time is even better than before.  The Parker Jotter XL Pink Gold Ballpoint Pen & Sorrento Medium Leather Journal are amazing.  They are so nice, and available together, for one price.

The Parker Jotter XB Pink Gold Ballpoint Pen writes so smooth!  It glides so easily.  No gunk on the page, you know from pressing too hard.  It’s the perfect pen.  The Sorrento Medium Leather Journal is great for putting thoughts in.  As a matter of fact, that’s what I’ve been doing.  These two products are great but sold together makes them even better.  You get them both for one money.

Pen Heaven is great for all of your journaling needs.  The paper makes the pen glide so smoothly, and the pen, itself, is so smooth.  I love Pen Heaven’s products and will be doing business with them in the future.

OMG!  I just found an Advent Calendar with these products.  I need this Advent Calendar.  It’s so great!  There’s 25 days of Ink!  I can’t believe it took me until now to find it.

My 25-year-old, daughter, is a teacher, and these are some of the products she’ll be getting for Christmas.  She loves journals, and pens.  This site was made for the teachers, educators, therapists, Doctors, etc.  It’s amazing.  In the end, we can all find a product here, no matter what our profession.

Heart-Mind Box is so Unique

Posted on November 5, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

The Heart-Mind Box is great.  There’s so many great things included in this box.  From Malas, a bookmark and book, to tea.  This box has it all, and that’s just a few products.  My 25-year-old daughter, and my 11-year old son, went through the box, and used the 20-minute candles.  They loved them.  The candles were perfect for a bit of brightness, in the night.

This Limited-Edition kit is great for helping educate the mind and educate the heart.  My kids enjoyed going through, and Sarah read “The Wisdom Of Compassion” and said the book was great.  The self-care box is outstanding.  I needed this too, and it took me where I needed to be.

The price is great, and you get so many things.  You can see all the jazz in the picture (above).  This box is great for couples, or to teach a child.  It’s going to help you so much.

The self-help box is able to help get your mind focused.  It has helped myself, and my kids to no end.  They loved it, and so did I.

My daughter, age 25, loves Spiritual products, and this box was right up her alley.  While Jacob, age 11, burned a candle just to burn it, Sarah used it for mental renewal (20 minutes for a few days).

I used a Malas to help calm down my anxiety, which I have clinical anxiety.  Even painting of the rock helped to relieve anxiety.

Sprout Plants with Pencils

Posted on October 31, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

I have loved Sprout for a while now.  Sprout is a pencil that has seeds, for you, to plant.  I love this product.  Instead of throwing away your used pencil, you plant it, and get beautiful flowers, herbs, or even trees.  This time around, we got Spruce trees.  I know they will make beautiful trees, in the future.  For now, they are pencils, and my son uses the pencils for school.  I also received a yellow pencil that is Daisy flowers.  I’ll be planting it in the spring.

Jacob, my 11-year-old, loves using Sprout.  He likes that he can plant it, as well.  My daughter, age 25, loves that she can take them to school, and let her kids try something green.  She’s a teacher at a great school, and the kids love this concept.  She has already taken a few, and planted 1, to my knowledge.

Sprout has now started making make up liners too.  These are amazing and give you the perfect look every time.  Amazing colors with a beautiful look, when done.  Again, you’ll be able to plant the seeds, in the tip, when you have used the makeup pencil to the end.  Two uses out of one pencil, it’s a great concept!

Award-Winning Artist, Teacher, Composer & Author Jamie Lee Hoffer Unveils Giggles & Stardust

Posted on October 27, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

New Online Destination For Preschoolers Ready To Learn, Sing, Laugh, Share & Imagine

       Original Songs, Videos & Books, Colorful Illustrations, Lovable Puppets & Captivating Stories Join Together With Jamie To Create A Warm & Nurturing Environment Where Children Can Discover The World & Themselves

The screen lights up and you’re instantly transported to a magical place where colors are brighter, faces are friendlier, music is happier and the whole world is bigger and better than you ever imagined it could be. And, best of all, your host in this wondrous new destination is so instantly likable and trustworthy, you’re ready to follow her wherever her imagination – and yours – will take you.

Welcome to GigglesandStardust.com, a brand-new online destination created by and starring a true Renaissance woman in the realm of child education – teacher, author, composer, illustrator, award-winning artist and loving Mom, Jamie Lee Hoffer.

Already an increasingly popular online personality among children and their parents thanks to a series of musical and educational videos on YouTube and elsewhere, Jamie officially launches the new Giggles and Stardust site today.

Featuring enchanting videos, original songs, book readings, colorful artwork, important life lessons, and a family of lovably unique puppets, Giggles and Stardust easily manages to be entirely contemporary while embracing the nostalgia of beloved childhood classics.

Tipping its hat to the warm and loving sensibilities that made shows like “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” and “Sesame Street” such timeless classics, GigglesandStardust.com stands in direct contrast to the overly slick, hyperkinetic children’s fare so prevalent today in favor of a thoroughly accessible environment designed not only to entertain young children but to educate them as well.

On the new Giggles and Stardust site, for example, young children are invited to spend time with Jamie and her puppet pals – including Pickles, Aunt Gloria, Cody, Sequoia, Madison Dragonson and Wide Mouth Bullfrog – as they share music, stories, social interactions, and lessons about nature, creativity, and friendship. Highlights of the site also include jam-packed Giggle Time Episodes filled with captivating, learning-centric stories, art, dance, music, and adventures.

With a focus on rhythm, color, hand/eye coordination, textural exploration, movement, storytelling, and self-expression, Giggles and Stardust is a space fueled by curiosity, excitement, and a fun-loving spirit.

Giving Children The Gift Of Learning & Imagination

Giggles and Stardust is a subscription-based site offering monthly, weekend or annual passes beginning at only $1.99 per month – making it an ideal gift for your own children or for family members, friends or co-workers with preschoolers in their lives. In addition to subscription-based passes, visitors to the GigglesandStardust.com site can purchase one of several books written and illustrated by Jamie, including           “I Don’t Want To Wear A Diaper Anymore,” “There’s a Jungle in the Back of My House” and “My Friend Sam.” Visitors to the site can also download her new album, “Songs From the House on the Hill” for instantly catchy songs that even a grown-up will love!

Giggles and Stardust subscriptions include:

▪          Themed content that includes activities, puppets, videos, songs, and book readings

▪          Age-appropriate art projects designed for preschoolers

▪          Adventures in which Jamie accompanies her young friends on various outings

▪          Kid-friendly interviews with professionals in their fields discussing topics such as bugs, health, art, music, dance and more

▪          Puppet stories linked to episode themes

▪          Songs and music videos

▪          Book readings

▪          Easy access to such merchandise as clothing and books, with more to come

To check out Jamie’s CD of original songs, visit Apple Music (also available on Pandora, Spotify and YouTube Music). In addition, parents can sign up to receive the Giggles and Stardust newsletter.

Meet Jamie!

Born and raised in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Jamie showed promise as an artist from a very young age, parlaying that talent into a BFA degree from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. After later relocating to Los Angeles, she became a sought-after graphic artist until she began teaching art to children ages 5-11 while also working as a preschool teacher for children ages 14 to 24 months (“Best job I ever had!” she says.).

When COVID forced millions of children (and adults, of course) to learn and work from home, Jamie, her supportive husband Andrew Hoffer, and a talented team of educators, programmers and entertainment industry advisors joined forces to create Giggles and Stardust – a site designed to encourage preschoolers and their families to have fun while learning from everywhere and anywhere around the world. Giggles and Stardust was thoughtfully designed to teach  “these newest humans on our planet that although feeling joy and happiness is wonderful, feelings of sadness, frustration or anxiousness are normal and an important part of what makes us the very special people that we are.”

Commenting on the launch of her new “baby,” Jamie says, “Everything I’ve done throughout my career and personal life – from being a singer-songwriter and artist to mother and preschool teacher – has led me to the creation and launch of GigglesandStardust.com. My goal is to show little ones that they are loved, supported, and important. Here, we sing, we laugh, we ask big questions, we wonder, we create, we love, and we all belong! Let’s help each other grow in confidence, connection, and love. Thank you for joining us. And remember – together, we can make the world a kinder place…one giggle at a time.”
