Why The Brain Train Adventure Game Is Kinda Dope

Recently, I was approached by Dr. Caleb Leong, the creator of The Brain Train Adventure game app. First, let me tell you – Caleb has great energy! He’s like that kids’ soccer coach who gets the kids pumped up and by association, you get pumped up as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s actually a soccer coach in real life.

My Interview with VoyageLA!

What sets me apart from others? Hmm… maybe that I’m a bit older than most mom bloggers so there’s the age thing. I also don’t sugarcoat a lot of what’s going on or how I feel.

I personally like having peel-off masks because it removes the effort of constantly rinsing off your face like when you’re trying to remove the other masks. Still, despite the easiness and the affordability of this product, I was skeptical.

Could this actually work just as well or even better than some of the other masks I’ve tried? … More Cheap Charcoal Mask That Produces Big Results
