Book, Song, Body

Book- January is Alzheimer Awareness Month (in Canada). There are currently 500,000 Canadians living with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. As a support of Alzheimer Society and the granddaughter of someone who had this disease, I have to recommend the book What's Happening to Grandpa?

Yes, this is a children's book, but it's STILL a good book. The main character, Kate, notices a change in her grandpa. Her mother explains to her about Alzheimer's disease. Kate decides that her and her grandpa should make a scrapbook, something to help preserve their memories.

This is a great book to introduce and explain Alxheimer's disease and related dementias to kids. Or even adults. Go ahead, give it a read.

Song- I am a huge Ashley MacIsaac fan. I had the chance to see him live this past summer and it was AMAZING! One of the songs he played was White Velvet, I feel in love with this song the minute I heard it. I ended up buying the CD so I could listen to the CD in my car and frequently play this song on repeat. I couldn't find a full version of this song, but you can hear a short clip here. You can also hear a portion of it on itunes. Seriously, give it a listen.

Body- Ultimate Clean 3 Way Cleanser by Garnier. This is a a 3-1 product. You can use it as a daily cleanser, exfoliating scrub or a mask. I've it as a cleanser and a scrub. While I'm not crazy about the smell (and it's only subtle), I love this product. I like products with scrubbing beads because it makes my skin feeling cleaner, which might just be psychological. But this product does leaves my skin feeling great. My skin is noticeably brighter and smoother right away. and also softer.
