Hacking Chinese: The Complete Guide to HSK I Review


I recently was given the opportunity to review the Hacking Chinese program from Hocmaa Publishing for free in exchange for my 100% honest and unbiased opinion on their product.


My daughter has been wanting to learn Chinese for the longest time because she is half Chinese. I have always told my husband to talk to her Chinese since she was born but that never happened and where we live we really do not have any Chinese tutor's so for the last couple of months I have been researching ways that she could learn.

I had began to think that there was no way this was going to happen because it was either drive her a hour in a half to a tutor 3 times a week or save up for months and purchase a program off the internet. Well now that has all changed because of this wonderful book from Hocmaa Publishing called Hacking Chinese: The Complete Guide To HSK 1 by Eva DOVC. 

When my daughter first starting reading the book she told me mom I dont think I am gonna learn anything without someone teaching me, boy was she wrong my daughter has been reading the book for about 3 weeks now and I am amazed to see what she has learned and what she can do now. Even her Dad does not know how to write in Chinese and my daughter knows a few characters now. I am beyond happy with this book. 

My daughter has actually had fun learning with the Hacking Chinese book.

Product Description
The present manual includes all the vocabulary that will be presented in the HSK I. We’ve included the 150 words that are included in the HSK I official list and added some others that have appeared in the tests so far. We’ve also included real test examples and exercises that simulate HSK tests, as well as grammar explanations that will benefit your Chinese study in the future.
We’ve put emphasis on learning characters, as we believe that the early acquaintance and knowledge of Chinese characters is essential for anyone that is serious in achieving language fluency. We know that by learning the characters, you’ll build a solid foundation for you future Chinese language studies and language fluency.
Lastly, we believe in learning by testing. Neuroscientists have discovered that we remember better the content that we have been tested on. That is why we have structured this book in a quiz format and we’re able to promise you: if you are able to answer or quiz questions, you are more than ready to breeze through your HSK I.

Holi In The Kitchen Silicone Spatula Set Review


I recently was given the opportunity to review the 2 pc Silicone Spatula Set by Holi In The Kitchen for free in exchange for my 100% honest and unbiased opinion on their product.


As much as I bake I have so many spatulas around but I have yet to find one that does not stick to my icing or my food. I make several cakes and cupcakes a year but I have also ruined so many because the icing ends up sticking to the spatula and tearing up the cake. I have seen companies out there advertise that their spatulas do no stick to food but the prices have been so unattainable to the average consumer that I had forgotten all about it.

Well now that has all changed for me because I was recently sent a wonderful product by Holi In The Kitchen to review it is called the 2 piece Silicone Spatula Set and I am really loving these spatulas. They are BPA free, non-stick, odors do not stick to them and they are very easy to hold. I have already used my spatulas to frost some cupcakes/cookies and to cook scrambled eggs. I was so surprised to see that the eggs truly did not stick to the spatulas like they would a traditional spatula. Wish I would have had this set years ago.

Texting Gloves for Smartphone & Touchscreen Review


I recently was given the opportunity to review the Texting Gloves for smartphones by iGotTech for free in exchange for my 100% honest and unbiased opinion on their product.


Now I know that it is almost summertime but for some of us it is still cold where we live and having to use our smartphones while it cold outside is sometimes nearly impossible. When it is cold outside and I try to use my phone I might as well be holding a piece of ice it seems like. My hands shake from being so cold that I end up either hitting the wrong numbers or typing something to someone completely opposite of what I wanted to say to them. 

Most of the time if my phone rang while I was outside and it was cold I would just ignore it because there is no way I am going to make my hands freeze. That was until recently I received a pair of Texting Gloves for touch screens by iGotTech. Now I can use my smartphone, tablet or any other touch screen electronic outside without feeling like my fingers are going to fall off. These gloves keep my hands so warm, are very comfortable to wear, feel very soft and best part is that I can use my phone because the gloves have something that iGotTech calls "Touch-nology".
