Book Review: Mary Jane by Jessica Anya Blau

Mary Jane by Jessica Anya Blau is a coming of age novel taking place in Baltimore, Maryland. During the 1970's, fourteen year old Mary Jane is caught in the middle of her family's conservative ideals and the progressive ideals of the Cone family where she is a summer nanny. Mary Jane is a sheltered teen who enjoys cooking with her mother, listening to Broadway Show Tunes, and singing in the church choir. On the first day of work, she is shocked at the mess in the Cone's home and introduces them to home cooked meals and keeping the house clean. In return, Mary Jane gets a front row seat to sex, drugs, and rock & roll. This novel was the selected for the book club I belong to. Again, this is a novel that I likely wouldn't have chosen to read on my own, but I was glad I did. Mary Jane is the first novel I've read by Jessica Anya Blau, and I was impressed with her storytelling.  Touching on race, class, and stereotypes, along with drugs and infidelity, it reminded

Product Review: Theraflu Sinus & Pain, Apple Cinnamon Flavor

product review theraflu sinus and pain apple cinnamon

Not too long ago, I received a VoxBox from Influenster.com with a bunch of goodies for free in return for my honest review of the products. One of the products that I received was Theraflu Sinus & Pain, Apple Cinnamon Flavor.

I was finally able to test this particular product over the weekend. Even though apple cinnamon usually is a great flavor for most people, I didn't care for it in the Theraflu Sinus & Pain drink. It was a bit too sweet for me, so I had trouble drinking all of it. I think I'd like to try this in a chocolate flavor instead of a fruity flavor, but I don't know if they offer it in my preferred flavor.

With that being said, I was amazed with the results. It did help with all that it promised . . . sinus congestion, sinus pressure, runny nose, headache, and sneezing. And, it did last for the promised amount of time, which is four hours. It actually lasted a bit longer than the allotted time, which was a nice plus. Another thing about this product that was great is that it doesn't make you drowsy, at least it didn't make me drowsy. I didn't take more than one dosage as I went back to my normal allergy medicine when it was safe to do so.

All in all, it did do what it promised much to my surprise, so I have to give it five out of five stars despite me not caring for the flavor of the Theraflu Sinus & Pain. I definitely recommend this product for those who suffer from allergies like I do.
