PakNaks® Charming Decorations for Kids

PakNaks® Ginger & Bella


PakNaks® are cute little decorations used to personalize almost anything that they can stick to. Kids will enjoy being able to decorate their backpacks, lunch bags, and books without the fear of their delightful charms fading or falling off. PakNaks® come in all shapes and sizes, from butterflies to basketballs, dogs to cats, cupcakes to flowers. Each soft, rubbery figurine, comes with a small card stating where the character lives, it’s name, it’s favorite food, and what it likes to do. The online store offers over 40 different characters each priced $3.99, so there’s a lot to choose from and it‘s very affordable.

The charms are very easy to put on and easy to take off. They don’t seem to wear out either, because I’ve peeled my PakNaks® off and put it back on, and it seemed to stick back onto my messenger bag heartily; no tear and no wear. The instructions advise you to wait 24 hours before doing this, for better results. Because I didn’t see this, I just peeled it off immediately. Thankfully the little charms are resilient because I had no problems with it going back on---oops.

With their fun, sleek design and colorful cartoony characters, PakNaks® are just right for that little something that makes your personal stuff more original than they were before.

The Truth About Dating, Love and Just Being Friends by Chad Eastham

The Truth About Dating, Love and Just Being Friends by Chad Eastham

When I was given this book by my mom, I didn’t know exactly what to expect from it other than it sounded rather sassy on the front cover. Being a person who doesn’t read much, this will be my second book covering the “dating scene” and I am glad my mom considered giving it to me to review. I enjoyed it thoroughly. The book is written well with a good sense of humor that kept it fresh and entertaining. I was never bored reading it and have actually read the entire thing!

  The book covers multiple subjects; people, love(in general not just the boyfriend and girlfriend kind), flirting, signs of good or bad relationships, stalkers, friends, you and even vampires(just read it…) I liked the discussions on people’s individual strengths and weaknesses and how the author asks you to write down certain things about yourself. This way, it's sort of giving you an opportunity to evaluate yourself, your life and maybe a difficult social situation that you might be going through at the moment. All of it is very helpful.

I’m happy to have read this, and I feel somehow smarter than I did before I read it. I recommend this book to anyone whether they are dating, single, married, teen or adult, because all of us need to know how to love-- and love well.
