Shay & Ivy "Beyond The Kingdom" Book Review

Maiyalene for Ivy
Magdalene for Shay


My family’s new favorite bedtime story to sign out is “Beyond The Kingdom” by a Deaf author, Sheena Mcfeely and illustrated by Casie Trace.  This is a debut book for their book series called, “Shay & Ivy.” My girls are around Shay and Ivy's age so they are already pretending that they are Shay and Ivy and this makes my heart glow.

The dedication page has a little quote that you will appreciate. This page reminds me to burst my little girls with lots of empowering energy as I begin to sign the story to them at bedtime. You will see what I mean when you get your hands on this cute book with beautiful photos! The details on the pages are entertaining to look through before going to the next page. This is one of the few memorable books that we have been reading again and again.

Beyond The Kingdom is about sisters thinking out of the box and going beyond being just princesses. This will be a good lesson for all children, including males so that they can learn and embrace that female can actually do anything.

As each of us are Deaf, we are giddy with knowing that the girls in the book are using sign language however the story is not just about being Deaf. As a mother, I appreciate that because I want my children to realize that they are beyond than just being Deaf as well as beyond than just being princesses. They can do anything they want despite their gender, language and culture.

In the videos, you can see my husband flipping through the pages of the book and then the girls all perplexed to be getting a book in the mail because we usually buy books at bookstores in hopes of preserving bookstores that have been closing down like crazy! You can request Shay and Ivy to be sold at your nearby library bookstore if you want to help keep the bookstores and libraries alive.

PIYO Informercial Shooting Day

Yesterday's shooting for the upcoming PIYO  infomercial was a fascinating, ONCE a lifetime, experience



What is PIYO? American Sign Language 
.  
More videos related to PIYO at ending of this blog post 
It begin a bit ago though. I send them a video of myself doing some PIYO poses. You can view it here. They emailed me few days later saying I AM IN!!!! I wasn't even sure about what to expect but I wanted the best out of it, so I asked them to provide interpreters so I can absorb the experience as much as I can!  They send awesome interpreters and made my heart flutter with appreciation once again! It meant a lot to me to have them there! 

The behind the scene work is harder than I thought! I was forever admiring the camera people and producers for their set up and always trying to get the right types of shooting to happen! The equipment are HUGE and all I can say is SERIOUS STUFF! They taped up mirrors and windows for the best lighting and taped our mats to the floor just in case. They thought of everything! 



We even had Maria Menounos, a TV 
correspondent for TodayAccess HollywoodExtra, and more, appear on the shooting with Chalene Johnson, a celebrity trainer of Turbofire, TurboKick, Chalean Extreme and creator of Live workouts at gyms all over like turbo kick and PIYO! Chalene is also a best selling author of Push and founder of few business development programs. Watching them work have me appreciating the hard work actresses/leaders go through! I appreciate every patience and effort they performed yesterday because it is for a good cause of bringing chances to fitness to people all over the world!

I am not even sure if every one of us will get TV time but the purpose of this was HUGE and I loved observing how everything worked out. 

Help me bring PIYO to people!!! Become a coach on my team! 


Have you tried PIYO yet? Ask me to become your beachbody coach/cheerleader  and I will help you get your PIYO and all set for an awesome experience.

I just had to stop by SmashBurger to treat myself to an organic burger and sweet potato fries!!! I have been hearing so much about this from the paleo/clean eating community on Instagram. It was a really NICE treat after a very long day of waiting around at the shooting!
