In the Nick of Time 'Making Silly Faces' CD Review + Giveaway

Nick Deysher and In the Nick of Time have released a new album this year: Making Silly Faces. This is a follow-up to People Places and Things (2009) and Coconut Groove (2007). With a mixture of a wide variety of musical styles (from rock and pop to funk, jazz and reggae), Silly Faces is a fun-filled family-friendly album that kids and adults will absolutely love! Nick's latest album won both first place and editor's choice in the 2011 She Knows Parenting Awards! Making Silly Faces is a great abulm that your kids will adore.

I really enjoyed listening to Making Silly Faces. The variety of music surprised me. At first I wondered if the cd was made up of parodies when I saw the song title "Let's Hear It for the Band," but all of the songs are originals by Nick Deysher. My personal favorites on this cd were "In the Nick of Time" because it had a very lyrical melody (melodic music is very important to me) and also "I Tried It...I Liked It!" because it was just so much fun! The latter song is about trying new foods because, you never know, you might like them! Making Silly Faces has many other great tunes like the bilingual "Abajo Arriba" and the very pop-rock-y "Slumber Party." Overall, I think Making Silly Faces is a fun cd that will become a very well-played cd in your collection.


One My Kansas City Mommy reader will win a copy of In the Nick of Time's Making Silly Faces CD!  This giveaway will end on November 11, 2011 at 11:00pm CST.  This giveaway is open to US readers only.

{Book Review} The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking by Kate Payne

Do you ever feel like you just don't have enough time (or money!) to keep your house in order? The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking might be just the thing you need. Hip Girl's by Kate Payne, covers a wide variety of home projects from a room-by-room guide to cleaning your house to using to all things outdoors to life after restaurants. This book would be great for anyone who wasn't able to learn housekeeping skills while growing up or just finds anything housework-related to be a daunting task. And it isn't just for the ladies. In the introduction, Payne says that she won't "make this book about gender, because the advice in this book is as much for guys as it is for girls." If you are looking to get your house in order without spending a fortune, you should check out Kate Payne's Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking.

I try to be a domestic goddess... but I don't always measure up quite as well as I'd like. At first, I did find many of the tasks in Hip Girls to be daunting, but if you just take it step by step and follow the instructions, everything will go swimmingly. One of the simple tricks that I took from this book was under the 'Bed, Bath, and Between' section. It is called 'quick chic: five bathroom decor dos and don'ts.' Specifically, using small jars or cups (mugs) to hold things like Q-tips, hair clips and the like as well as moving occasionally used beauty supplies to a nearby closet to help save space in the bathroom. Another fun part of the book are the little tips inserted throughout the book called "Word to the Wise" and "Hip Trick." The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking will help you get your house in shape!

"Like" The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking on Facebook!

The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking is currently available on Amazon for $13.59 - a savings of 32%.

Thank you to Harper Collins for providing my review sample!  I received no other compensation and all views expressed are my own.
