When Midwesterners go to Daiso

Have you ever been to a Daiso store? They are mostly located in California and are a Japanese Yen Store. So that means most items are $1.50 US. This wasn't our first time to Daiso, the first time we bought so much more! We usually visit California each summer because we have family there. So you can bet we visit Daiso at least once and often more than once during those visits! We don't have anything like it here in the midwest. I can order similar items online but they are so much more pricey. I have even seen people selling Daiso items on Amazon and eBay at a huge profit!

I was excited when I was offered a copy of Recipes for a Delicious Life. Chef Einav has created one of the most intriguing cookbooks I have ever read. She has blended recipes and music together. Combining her Cookbook with a CD of songs. Chef Zipora produced a classical music CD, Music for a Delicious Life, to accompany her book. It features techno-classical music arranged by movie and television score composer Neil Argo. Not only is there a CD of music but also interactive technology where you can download a smartphone app to go along with the recipes.

Chef Zipora has traveled the world for years sharing her talent for cooking, love of music, and passion for life. From the Ritz-Paris to the tables of some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities, Zipora dishes out fabulous food and even better life advice. Her clients have included Mariah Carey, Pierce Brosnan, Bob and Dolores Hope, Aaron Spelling, Donovan McNabb, and many more.

Now, Chef Zipora has compiled her most famous dishes and stories from her incredible life into the book Recipe for a Delicious Life which is on shelves and ready for your review.

The Ultimate Kid's Cookbook

I was provided a copy of this book in order to write a review.

I was so thrilled to receive a review copy of "The Ultimate Kids' Cookbook." Not only because it is an interesting book, but because I had the opportunity to meet Tiffany a few years ago at a Disney event we both attended. She was a kind of mentor to me for the event and I am happy to be able to help support her new project.

I have a 12-year-old daughter who loves to bake from scratch so I thought she might be interested in this cookbook geared towards kids helping to make meals in the kitchen. She seems to be more focused on baking but I am excited to get some kid-friendly ideas to feed my picky eater kiddos. Tiffany is joined by her two daughters in the video clip below.

Buying a Used Phone

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

My tween daughter is clamoring for a phone. For my other daughter's first phone, we found a used one and had it added to our account. It is time to find the second daughter a phone. The great thing about Gazelle is that you can search for a used device. In our case, seeking a phone we can choose our carrier, model of phone, the color of the phone, and the size of storage. Then we can decide on the cosmetic condition of the phone as well.


I really like Apple devices and we are looking at an iPhone. This is a 5s.

Another option would be to upgrade her older sister's phone and hand down her phone to her younger sister. Which is probably the route we will take. Our oldest daughter complains about not having enough storage on her iPhone. I would love to be able to upgrade her and once again, searching for a used phone really suits our budget better. 


This is an iPhone 6

I can't justify upgrading her more than an iPhone 6 because that is the version I have. If I were to consider any newer of a phone, I would want to upgrade mine and then do a double hand me down!

Right now Gazelle is offering some pretty exciting deals. You can check them out below. And remember, if you have devices to sell, Gazelle will offer you money.
Save Up To $30 Off Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Galaxy S9, S9+, iPhone X devices At Gazelle.com (8/14 - 8/20)

$50 Off iPad Pros (8/21 - 8/27)
