I have needed glasses since I was 11, and i’m now 30 so I have been through a lot of different pairs. I reached out to Visionworks to try out their glasses and I was thrilled when they said yes.

Armed With Truth Temp tattos

As many know, I love tattoos. I mean I have 11 of them and I plan on more in the future. When I had the chance to work with Armed With Truth I definitely wanted to. You may have never heard of the, I hadn’t until recently.

Belli Skincare: Safe but Effective Skin Care for Pregnant Women!

I am religious about a proper skin care routine. You see, as a child I was exposed to a woman who had the most beautiful skin under the sun at close to 60 years old. When my mother asked her about this, she told her she never went to bed in makeup and always, ALWAYS moisturized. Even as a 10 year old girl, I took this advice to heart because I knew I wanted lovely skin like her some day, and I am religious about a good cleanser, an occasional exfoliater, and moisturizer. Even though I love my skin care, and am somewhat of a "product junkie" when I am pregnant or trying to get pregnant, I do worry about the safety of many of the products I use!! 

Right now, we have OFFICIALLY (eekkkksss!) started trying for baby #3. Not to jinx ourselves, but it never seems to take long for us to get pregnant, so I am now looking at chemicals and searching for safer alternatives to my favorite products. Belli Pregnancy contacted me JUST IN THE NICK of time, and offered to send me face wash and pre-treatment scrub. Both of which are amazing, and contain no harmful chemicals!! I will be purchasing the acne-control spot treatment on payday as well!! I love Belli, love the company and the fact that they stand behind their safe products, and believe the spot treatment will definitely help with my acne prone skin.

Argan Alchemy Is Amazing for My Skin and Fine Hair!

I have problematic hair. You see, it is very fine but also pretty frizzy and wavy, almost curly. That is a weird combo! I have tried different natural oils, and found that Moroccan oil was just too heavy for my hair and made it look greasy and unwashed. I love the concept of Moroccan oil though because it increases shine and removes frizz, so I needed something that worked for MY HAIR like that! Then I heard about Argan Oil and Argan Alchemy. 

fun with duct tape

When I think of duct tape I think of fixing something around the house (seriously who doesn’t?) or not having regular tape to put something up on the door or where ever. When Mya thinks of duct tape she thinks of fun things she can make. Funny how generations are so different. Scotch reached out to see if we wanted to try out their patterned tape for designs. I knew Mya would love to so I of course said yes.

Carmex lip balm

Everyone knows Mya and love makeup and everything but a lot of times we forget about our lips with either lipstick or lip treatments. Carmex reached out to try their Moisturizer Plus. After looking at the new designs (and Mya) we of course said yes.

Dogswell great dog food

I have a big dog that is super picky about his food. There have been so many times that we have bought just from the grocery store and when we gave it to House he just doesn’t seem interested.  I had the opportunity to try out Dogswell line of dog food called Live Free, and I couldn’t really pass up the opportunity. We were sent the Turkey, Chicken and also the Salmon flavors for House to try.

Jesus: Get to Know Series

"Jesus - part of the Get to Know series - is a unique biography about Jesus, the son of God. Focusing on the life and character of this Biblical hero, using color photographs, maps, and other visual resources to tell the whole story, young biography fans will come to learn more about this man of the God and the role he plays in history. Featuring a bibliography and scriptural references throughout, this is sure to become a favorite for young readers and for first book reports."

As I mentioned in my Get to Know Mary Review. This book is an excellent resource for my seven year old son. He loves to read it by himself at bedtime and ask questions afterwards. We often look at the maps and photos together and talk and explore more about Jesus and his life. Even though Jesus is taught and explored in every Christian curriculum, this book adds a different perspective of the Son of God. It also really opens up a lot of conversation between me and my son. We cannot wait until my younger son is old enough to understand and share our bedtime routine with us!!
