Book Review: Santa's Countdown to Christmas, 24 Days of Stories by Kim Thompson, Illustrated by Elodie Duhameau

Santa's Countdown to Christmas by Kim Thompson, Illustrated by Elodie Duhameau was published on October 2, 2017 and is a book format of an advent calendar.  Told from the perspective of Santa Claus, the storyline chronicles what Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, the elves, and the reindeer do in preparation of Christmas on each day of December leading up to Christmas Day. I'd like to thank NetGalley and Crackboom! Books for giving me a copy of Santa's Countdown to Christmas in exchange for my honest review.  I was thrilled to be approved to read this book because I love Christmas and am a kid at heart. This picture book was well written and engaging.  The illustrations were phenomenal as well.  I even enjoyed reading it as an adult.  I wish I had kids of my own so I could buy it for them, but I guess I'll have to settle for buying it for family members and friends who have kids that believe in Santa Claus.  I'd recommend this book for babies through eight years old.  Reading

Product Review: Emergen-C Immune Plus 1,000 mg Vitamin C Plus Vitamin D & Zinc, Raspberry

product review emergenc immune sent me a Vox Box with quite a few samples for free in exchange for my honest review. One of the samples that I received was Emergen-C Immune Plus 1,000 mg Vitamin C Plus Vitamin D & Zinc, Raspberry Flavor.

The instructions on the packet said to add the mix to 4-6 ounces of water, or if you wanted a lighter flavor, to add more water. I wanted a lighter flavor so I added the Emergen-C Immune Plus package to a 16.9 ounce bottle of water. The first sip tasted okay, but as I continued to drink more, it had a very medicinal taste, and I didn't taste much Raspberry flavor. I guess that is because I used more water. The color of the drink was similar to the color of Dubble Bubble Bubble Gum.

If you have a sensitive stomach like I do, you may want to make sure you don't drink this on an empty stomach. I have issues with Zinc upsetting my stomach if I don't have food before hand. With that being said, I love the fact that this product has vitamin c, vitamin d, and zinc in it as I'm all for supplementing my diet with vitamins.

Four out of five stars is what I give Emergen-C Immune Plus 1,000 mg Vitamin C Plus Vitamin D & Zinc due it having a medicinal taste. However, with that being said, I will give some of their other flavors a try to see how they taste before making my mind up completely about this product.
