Written by Dr. Kevin Leman & Jeff Nesbit

About the book

It's time for Will to forge his own path.
But the force that drives him to greatness could also destroy him--and his family.

As the firstborn son of an old and powerful family, William Jennings Worthington VI knows what it's like to be under pressure. Groomed from birth with the relentless message that he was destined for greatness, Will has always pushed himself to succeed--nearly as much as his never-satisfied financial tycoon father pushes him. Becoming CEO of the world's largest and most adventuresome oil company seems the next logical step on the success ladder. But when circumstances turn, Will finds himself staring down a road that leads to Capitol Hill. Can he trade the board room for the Senate floor? Or will family secrets keep him from his destiny?

My Thoughts

I will admit that when I saw that Dr. Leman was a co-author of this new novel I immediately jumped on the opportunity to review the book.   I love Dr. Leman’s book and I was curious as to why he has embarked in a journey to write novels. 

This book is the first of a series  called The Worthington Destiny.   From the first pages, you get to discover the characters and their relationships.   You are slowly drawn into the mystery of this novel with some reactions from the mother of the Worthington siblings as well as an unknown character that quickly enters the pages of the story.    

I realized quickly why Dr. Leman is involved in this book.   Each of the siblings exhibit certain characteristics of the birth order theory that he has demonstrated in his book titled The Birth Order Book.  And at the end of the book, you can read a quick overview of each birth order place.   Each of the characters will have to deal differently with the events that happens in the book.   Each have their own ambitions but at the same time they respect and love their siblings.

Reading this novel, I can’t help but to be immerse in the lives of the characters and the events surrounding them.   I am left wanting to know more about their lives.   But unfortunately I will have to wait until spring 2016 to discover the next part of the story.

If you are looking for a great read this summer, I strongly recommend A Perfect Ambition

A Perfect Ambition is available for purchase at your favourite bookstore, even amazon.ca and amazon.com.

Основные RGBI’ve recently been approached to review a new product on the market – Logo Loops.   What is Logo Loops?  Well it is a fun headband that will communicate on things your daughter loves the most.   

No matter the length of a girl’s hair, sometimes it’s great to just pull it away from the eyes and forehead. Better than a barrette or a scrunchie, a messaged headband lets your personality shine through. And with so many summer themed loops (slang for headband), a surfboard, anchor, sailboat or flip flops can be your seasonal message of the day.

Every logo loops headband is made of 90% cotton and 10% lycra for a snug fit, holding back those flyaway hairs. But be assured these stretchy accessories won’t cause a headache unlike stiff wire or plastic headbands. These 2¼” wide themed headbands are ideal for a round of tennis, bike riding or strolling the mall thanks to their absorbency. When bands get dirty, simply machine wash in cold water with the band flipped inside out. Toss in the dryer at low heat. Of course these headbands are “just right” because they’re invented by and the business is owned by a mom of two girls!

These made-in-the-USA headbands make thoughtful gifts. Girls can toss one in their backpack or gym bag. Tuck a bunch in the suitcase for carefree summer traveling. Day camp or sleep away calls for an assortment of headbands. For girls who need to roll out of the bunk and get to the camp mess hall, a whimsical logo loops headband is the way to go – in style.

Logo loops are sold everywhere. From Bermuda to British Columbia and from San Jose to Staten Island, retailers can hardly keep the colorful headbands on shelves. To find a store in your state, visit the website at www.logo-loops.com to find a vast retail listing. Or save the trip and shop online. Logo loops online store has dozens and dozens of looks from season themes to initials, spiritual, sports, sorority and holidays. The themes and slogans are beautiful embroidered for long-lasting wear—no iron-on decals here!

Our thoughts

I have received the following three headbands for my daughter.

I was immediately very impressed with the quality of the headband and the size of the designs on it.  

Here’s my sweet daughter wearing them.

She was delighted to have new headbands and love the butterflies, the fox and the hedgehog that I had picked for her.   They fit perfectly on her head and she knows that she can wear these stylish headbands anywhere she goes.  The headbands will also maintain the memory and are non-slip.   When Jasmine wears one, it is not slipping whatsoever on her head like other ones will do.   They can be worn on sports fields, classrooms, camp and more. 

As a mom I am always on the lookout for something that will help my daughter to keep her hair out of her face.  The Logo Loops headbands are perfect to help her hair to stay put in the back.

The Logo Loops are available for purchase on their website for the price of 13.99$ US.   They are available in  1½” or 2¼” styles.

GREAT NEWS!

Logo Loops is offering two logo loops of the winner’s choice based on availability as shows on the website. Value of (MSRP: 27.98$)

1525397_656831814376445_1696591700_nMaplelea will be having a special event at Black Creek Pioneer Village on July 5th.   I was sent a beautiful pioneer costume for my daughter’s doll from Maplelea to highlight the upcoming event.  I wish I could bring my daughter Jasmine to the event and that her doll, Léonie could wear the Pioneer Quebecoise outfit since it is simply adorable.

Once again I am blown away by the attention to details when it comes to making outfit for the Maplelea girls.  This specific outfit is based on what pioneer girls in Quebec would wear.  Check out the detail on the blue vest and observe the colorful pattern of the skirt as well.

When Léonie’s family visits her tante and oncle’s cabane à sucre during maple sugar season, they often help out with the traditional entertainment for the guests. For this, Léonie wears an outfit like her ancestors might have worn over 300 years ago.  Léonie's journal pages include detailed information about the history and traditions of the pioneer outfit.  The outfit includes the following items:

  • Chemise
  • Mantelet
  • Scarf
  • Skirt
  • Bonnet
  • Tights
  • Shoes
  • Apron
  • Collectible journal page
  • Blank journal page
  • Maplelea hanger

Even the shoes look like pioneer girl shoes with a little heel.

The Pioneer Quebecoise is available for purchase directly from Maplelea

It is perfect to celebrate our history as Canadians no matter where we are located because pioneers were there to bring us where we are today.
