Bible Journaling Kit Review

I recently had the opportunity to review a really cool Bible Journaling Kit.

If you can’t see the video above please click here.

Here is a little more about this product:

26142xCreate a work of art on the pages of your favorite Bible. Draw, color, or journal your thoughts, dreams, and prayers. Highlight your favorite verses or the encouragements that speak to your heart with pencils, stickers, and tabs. Kit includes:

  • 4 sheets of word stickers
  • 4 sheets of alphabet stickers
  • 24 tab stickers
  • 8 colored pencil twists
  • 1 journaling pen
  • 1 pouch with adjustable strap to fit Bibles of all sizes
  • 1 ruled page protector mat with tracing lines

My review:

I love it. It makes it easy to get started if you have never started Bible journaling and always wanted to. The price is very reasonable for what you get in the kit. The patterns are super cute on the sticker tabs and I absolutely love that it has the pouch that can be attached to the front of the Bible. The twistable pencils are convenient as you don’t need to carry a pencil sharpener with you and I love the word stickers. I think those are my favorite things. I would recommend picking up other kits like this.

You can purchase the product at these locations:

Barnes & Noble:

Dove Dry Spray & Dove Men +Care Dry Spray

Recently my husband and I received Dove’s dry spray and Dove’s Men +Care dray spray to try out.  We both were pretty well pleased with these two products. It’s easy to use and they both smell great.  For me it didn’t feel cold going on and it felt fresh all day.  My hubby says “I really like this stuff” which pretty much means it’s a good product and he will use it daily. Which he has.


It is a bit on the pricier side of the deodorant products but I think its pretty well worth it if you really like it.  Where can I find it? Well I’m glad you asked. This product is available at Target.  One of my favorite stores.  Run on by there and try it out for yourself.  You just might be glad you did.

You can stream movies and shows directly to your computer or mobile device. With the mobile app available for both Android and Apple. I was a little bummed that there is not an app for the Kindle Fire since that is the tablet I have. However, we downloaded the app to my hubbies Android tablet and everything ran fine. I can add it to my daughters iPad mini and she can watch some of her favorite faith based cartoons. It runs pretty smooth on my laptop too.

It was refreshing not to have to sort through a bunch of junk to get to good movies. Working for a Christian retailer I have seen many of these movies on the shelves but its just not affordable for me to purchase all of them. This service has allowed me to watch many of them and in turn help my customers. So for me its had a two-fold reward.

Dessange Paris Oleo Miracle Collection

I was privileged to be part of the #JadoreDessange VoxBox from In it came the Dessange Paris Oleo Miracle Collection available at Target.


The Dessange Shampoo and Conditioner are both priced at $9.99 each and the replenishing oil is $11.99. This particular set is specifically designed for over processed and damaged hair. I can honestly say that my hair needed some new life. After using this product for the past two weeks my hair has felt softer than its felt in the past few years. I have not colored my hair in two years because of the effects of so much coloring previously as well as the effects of stress. I don’t use the conditioner every single time because it makes my hair a bit oily if used to often. I use the conditioner once a week. I do use the leave in treatment every time I wash my hair, which is every other day (I learned from an interview with a model one time that its better for you not to wash your hair daily because it strips the natural oils out of your hair).

I like this product and although its on the more expensive side of the what I normally would pay for something like this I think its definitely worth the the over all benefits to my hair. You can click on this link to head over to and learn even more about this product.

Spiral Light Candles


I was so excited to find out about this really cool candle company called Spiral Light Candle. When they emailed me and asked if I would try out their product in exchange for writing about it I was thrilled.  I love candle’s always have and always will. When I got the box in the mail I was delighted to see this beautiful Purple Orchid Candle (I received the small 3×3). Honestly I could smell the candle as soon as the box opened, even before I saw the color of it. The candle smelled like spring to me. I loved it considering here in East Tennessee we’ve been under snow for the past few weeks.  The smell of orchid’s was such a pleasant change for us. (I’m currently burning my orchid candle while I write this)

What I thought was super cool about this candle is its two candle’s in one.  When you first get it the wick looks like its in a really weird spot because its on the side of the candle. When you light it it burns down the side and as the wax melts it’s forming an internal pillar candle. The spiral burn lasts only a few hours. It’s super cool. When the side wick runs out you have this beautiful pillar candle that burns for a really long time. I’ve been burning mine daily for over a week now and its still going. This is one of the coolest products I’ve seen and the scent is divine.  I’m soon going to have to purchase another one but that’s ok with me. I love them.

Here is a video to show you how this candle works.

Here are a few of my personal images of the candle burning.




I love the wood wick in the pillar part of the candle. It burns so pretty. The small candle is priced at $9.95 and you get free shipping on purchases of $35 or more. The medium candle is a 4×4 and the Large size is 4×6. They are so pretty and there are so many different scents to choose from. Ya’ll must head over and check them out.

You can purchase these candles by visiting the Spiral Light website.

Victoria’s Secret Sport Review

I have never owned a sports bra because I really never thought I needed it. I figured my regular ones would work fine for working out. But I was wrong. After receiving my new sports bra and work out pants from Victoria’s Secret Sport I immediately tried them on. Just from trying on the bra I could tell I was going to like it. The support was unbelievable and it was so comfortable. After running and working out I realized that this is exactly why sports bra’s were invented. If I could get by with living in it, I definitely would.

There are so many different styles and colors to choose from. I received the Incredible bra in black and pink and the Showtime pant in black and pink as well. Just an FYI the pants are no longer available.  However there are a ton of other really cute pants V407305_om_fto use for your workout in lots of color choices and styles. So you are not limited by choices. You will find something that you like.

The bra features padded shoulders and hook and eye closure’s in the back. If you don’t like the back closure they also make the Incredible with a front closure option. I loved the padded shoulders. It also has the breathable padding with wicking liner to help keep you extra dry during your workout. It has a concealed underwire for maximum support and comfort. I was very impressed with how breathable it was and how cool I still felt after working out.

V409413_CROP3The pants were stretchy, and also had the mesh sides. They were very comfortable and I could have worn them all day, if I didn’t have to go to work. I can’t wait to try another style. Maybe their yoga pants. I love yoga pants.  The pants in the photo are another pair that was similar to the ones received.

And just so you know that I actually did wear them I took a picture after I tried them on. I am a bit modest and have a hard time showing myself in a two piece and this is as comfortable as I could get taking a picture in this. IMG_20140906_163839(ha-ha) I am very happy with this product. I definitely recommend purchasing a sport bra for workout purposes and this bra is amazing. So I would be wrong not to recommend it to you. It’s definitely worth the investment. Head on over to Victoria’s Secret and check out their new line of Sport product.

Littlest Pet Shop Style Set Review

A few weeks ago Boo and I was sent a package from Hasbro and and it was filled with Littlest Pet Shop Products to Review. We received a pack of the Pet Pawsability two-pack bobble head figures, a Style Scene Set and a Style Set play set. These products are absolutely adorable and they go right along with the Littlest Pet Shop Show on the HUB. Boo loves the show and it’s characters. So receiving this just sent her over the top as far as how happy she was the day it arrived. She couldn’t wait to open it. And since this is our very first toy review we created a video for it. Watch the video below to see what we thought about this product.

If you can’t see the video CLICK HERE.

Check out these awesome products for your kids. They are available where most toys are sold.

We received these products for free in exchange for our honest opinion. There was no monetary compensation and I am reporting this in accordance with FTC regulations.

Review of my #SurfsUpVoxBox


I had the opportunity to get #FASTrelief  with a sample of First Aid Shot Therapy. Let’s just say that it works and got rid of my migraine, however, the after taste was not good. I wish we could find a way to get rid of the bad after taste. I can’t complain too much because the stuff works.


I #EscapeWithHT using the Hawaiian Tropics After Sun Lotion which made my skin feel soft after a day at the pool. Plus the smell reminded me of the smell of summer. You know the one chlorine, salt and suntan lotion filling the breeze. It was great.

IMG_20140624_143301I was super excited to try out Cover Girl’s Bombshell Curvaceous mascara to get my own #Bombshelling look. I compared this to my regular mascara and I could definitely see a difference in how long my lashes looked. I was quite pleased with it. It is a two step process but it is worth it.

IMG_20140704_202929Then we tried the #JambaJuice smooties. Our #PerfectCombination was the #Razzmatazz smoothie. We loved the taste and even the kids enjoyed the flavor of this smoothie. Definitely a recommendation to all of my friends.

IMG_20140624_145121My absolute favorite product was the #sinfulcolors Ocean Side nail color. #SinfulColors is a huge favorite in our house and we had three other colors by them already but this Ocean Side blue is so pretty.

Here is our #SinfulColors collection so far:

From left to right: Hottie, Fiji, Queen of Beauty, and Ocean Side


I really enjoyed being a part of this #VoxBox opportunity and I look forward to getting to be a part of more.

One Faith Boutique is a women’s clothing boutique with cute stylish clothing at affordable prices.  One of the things I like the best about this boutique is that it gives back. It’s founded on Christian principles and part of their proceeds go to purchase Bible’s for kids around the country as well as to other organizations that help people. You can read more about their story and their founder HERE.

I was contacted by the founder and she graciously sent me an item from the shop. It was so very hard for me to choose something. There are lots of things from this shop that I absolutely love and am adding to my Pinterest boards to make purchases from later. I finally decided on this: Floral_sublimation_top_5__84166.1398313127.720.1080

Floral Sublimation Style Dolman Sleeve Top $25.00

It’s absolutely adorable. I couldn’t wait to get it. I chose this because its different than other tops I typically buy and it was something that I can both dress up or dress down.  I have to honestly say that it is one of my favorites .  Since receiving the top in the mail I have gotten many compliments and people asking me where I got it from. I gladly share the website with all my friends and family.


The pic to the right is me wearing it to work. I have to be somewhat dressed up when I work as I work in a Christian Retail location.

I liked how it fit, the color and the fact that it is versatile.  I requested a medium  and kept fretting it might be to small because I have run into that problem in the past but I should not have worried. It fit well. Wasn’t too tight nor too big.

I had several co-workers also compliment the top.  I can’t help but want to share a shop that I believe not only has great quality items at good prices but helps to put Bible’s into the hands of kids all over our nation. Yeah, I want to share about that.

Here a few others of my favorites from the website. red_palazzo_pants_87101.1400164547.480.720__77896.1402351082.720.1080

I absolutely love these Palazzo pants but since I am on the shorter side (or as I like to say vertically challenged) they always end up being to long on me. I still like them though.

Coral And Black Chevron Palazzo Pants $29.99

I am in love with the color and how they flow.  This is one of those days that I wish I was a bit taller.  lol

Multi Cross Charms And Bead Necklace Penny_and_charm_necklace__59894.1398217271.720.1080With Penny $16.00

This is the most adorable charm necklace. I love the turquoise bead and the different colors of gold and bronze used on the crosses. They are darling.

There are just so many things on this site that I find adorable and I just can not list them all. You should make sure to check out their sales and new arrivals.

Head over and check out One Faith Boutique and let her know that I sent you.
