Cover Reveal!!!! “Tragic” ~Devney Perry~

 

 

Kaine Reynolds wants nothing more than solitude. After an unthinkable tragedy destroys his family, he’s cut off all ties to his former life so he can battle his grief the only way he knows how.

Alone.

So when Piper Campbell knocks on his door, rambling on about being his new neighbor, he slams the door in her face.

But Kaine’s gruff demeanor doesn’t scare her. She’s set on living in Montana and starting over after a terrible divorce. And she wouldn’t mind having a fling to chase away the pain of her husband’s betrayal. Her handsome, albeit rude, neighbor is the perfect candidate.

Yet what neither of them suspect is that their no-strings affair will result in the surprise of Piper’s lifetime—and Kaine’s worst fear.

Review: Boar Bristle Hair Brush With Added Nylon Pins

I am a cheapskate, I always have been and always will be lol. I have literally had the same hairbrush for years and it is one of those cheap ones you can find at Walmart. I have bought a few extras over the years, because you always need one in your purse and car, but they have also been the cheap ones. I just have never found a need to purchase a more expensive, better quality brush. I received this boar bristle hair brush to review and I was completely overwhelmed with how AMAZING it is!

I guess it goes to show that sometimes you just need to treat yourself! I am obsessed with this hairbrush! I love the way that it feels on my scalp and how it transforms my lame locks into a luscious mountain of flowing hair.  😉 I made my mom try it out (she is a cheapskate like me lol, I wonder where I learned it from?!?) and she absolutely loved it. She said it was like she was getting a scalp massage. Needless to say she tried to steal my brush!

img_20180906_1419441

At first glance it looks like it would be rough and uncomfortable while brushing but it really isn’t. In case you can’t tell I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!! 🙂 It also came in a fancy package. A beautiful cardboard box held this set and the brush itself was in a nice cotton drawstring bag. Along with this brush, you will also receive a wooden comb and a cotton headband. The headband has velcro on it to resize it to your specific head size and it is super soft! I love to use this combo right after a shower! The head band is perfect for keeping your hair back. The brush is great to get out any tangles and also leaves your hair softer than ever!

I highly recommend this product! You should DEFINITELY go buy one for yourself! 🙂

Review: Terra Touchless Automatic Bathroom Faucet with Heavy Duty Ceramic Valve

 

 

I have been bugging my husband for weeks now to replace the faucet on one of our vanities in my house. Not that there is anything wrong with the faucet, it was just time for a change! We haven’t done much to this bathroom since moving into our house 7 years ago. The Terra automatic faucet is fantastic! It is seamless and a beautiful heavy duty chrome.

img_20180829_1840421

When I received it I was impressed by the packaging.  It came nicely wrapped up and the actual faucet was in a nice mesh bag. Right off the bat I knew I liked this company! If they cared that much about packaging then this must be an awesome product worth my time!

When we got ready to replace the faucet I didn’t realize that there would be two holes on each side of the new automatic faucet. This is the one and only thing I don’t like about the product. Most vanities come with a two handled faucet so therefore it makes sense that their are two holes lol. But I didn’t think about this being an issue! I do wish it would have come with something to cover those holes though because now I will have to go out and purchase something that will cover them up.

Other than that I love that I don’t have to touch it to wash my hands, but I do find myself reaching for a knob! My kids love it and it is super easy to install!

img_20180829_1842391

It is battery powered so you don’t have to worry about any kind of electrical hook up for it which was a big perk for us because there are no outlets nearby. The batteries fit easily into the faucet where they are safe from water. The top of the faucet comes off easily to allow access to the battery compartment.

img_20180829_1841481

 

I also love how clean it looks, even after being installed for a week and my crazy kids around it the thing still looks clean! Right now it looks funny with the holes but I love the faucet and would highly recommend it! I plan on putting this in my other bathrooms! I wish that they had one for my kitchen lol! 😉

img_20180911_145310.jpg

YOU GUYS!!! OMG I LOVE JOURNALS!!!! Do you love journals???? If you do then this is one to add to your collection! It is super adorable and has writing prompts!!!! WHAT?!?!?!

When I first got this in the mail I was a little skeptical, it seemed like a plain journal and it wasn’t very big. BUT, then I opened it up and the pages are different colors, there are quotes in it AND writing prompts!!!! It also came with a “You are so loved.” bookmark! YAY! How cool is that?! The quotes are heartfelt and it is just all around an amazing journal! I absolutely love it and can’t wait to see what other kind of goodies this company has!!!!!

Review: Jade Roller Kit with Face Serum

 

img_20180827_135442

I never realized how much I would love this awesome roller!!! It’s seriously one of those items where you don’t know what you are missing out on until you have tried it! I suffer from really bad sinus issues due to year round allergies. I was having really bad inflammation in my sinuses the other day and I used this roller! It was cooling and just the right amount of stimulation to that area that it relieved the pain I was having.

Jade is an amazing stone. It has been thought to have many healing powers and it is beautiful. I love the color and the history of the stone. I really love this product and am so glad I get to share with you how much I loved it!!!

img_20180827_135648.jpg

It can be used on its own, with the serum or lotion and also cooled in the refrigerator! it comes with a great carrying bag that keeps it clean and it is easy to clean after each use. I love using it every evening and it makes my face feel amazing! I highly recommend getting one of these!! It has great benefits and is very relaxing! I love to have my face massaged and this is equivalent to that! 🙂

img_20180827_135654.jpg

The vitamin C serum is not too oily and it makes my skin super soft. The nice thing about this is that you can use whatever lotion you want on it and it doesn’t affect the quality of the product! It is a high quality product for a fantastic price! I have recommended this to all of my friends! Even my husband likes using it, but shhhhhh! Don’t tell anyone I said that lol he wouldn’t want anyone to know lol! 😉 Go check it out! It is totally worth the money! 🙂

Review: Rainoop Women’s Vintage 50s Halter Pin up Ruched One Piece Swimsuit

I am a huge fan of vintage clothing and I was so excited to see this adorable little number up for review! I own several vintage dresses and absolutely love the 1950’s era clothing! 🙂

Upon arrival I was giddy! I was so excited! It was super cute in the pictures and my expectations were high! I ordered a size 12 which was the biggest size available, which I thought was kind of odd but ordered anyways. I normally wear a size 12 and didn’t think much of it.

img_20180911_190107

I couldn’t wear it! 😦 Waaaaaaaa!

THIS IS NOT A SIZE 12!!!! OMG I couldn’t even get it over my thighs. Literally, this was more like a size 8! It was stretchy but you know material only stretches so much lol! I thought ok, well maybe it’s just me and my thighs are too big! 😉 But when I held this up to my boobs it barely made it across my chest!

I was very very sad about this suit! It is super cute and the ruched sides are so adorable! But it definitely wasn’t what I thought it would be. I was very disappointed! If you are going to purchase this suit BEWARE! It is not true to size!

Review: MarcoPolo Junior Sports Goggles (Froggystyle)

 

img_20180827_135436

 

My kids are avid swimmers and LOVE summertime! They were so mad when it started getting cooler this past week because they wouldn’t be able to go swimming much anymore. I told them I think Fall is upon us and they all argued that even though its 70* that it’s still OK to swim! I have a strict rule of it has to be at least 90* before we can go swim! I hate cold water and I don’t want them in the water without me. I know…..helicopter mom and proud of it!!! 🙂

We have had the pleasure of trying out this particular brand of goggles in not one but two different styles (the other style is in another blog post). These are super adorable goggles but honestly they don’t work very well. They are a pain in the butt to tighten or loosen because the rubber pieces do not move well. They are nice once they get settled on the right size, but getting them there was such a struggle! These goggles have a very small eye opening and it made it hard to see out of.  My kids didn’t seem to mind though. They also fogged easily, which is pretty normal for most goggles.

My kids liked them for the simple fact that they looked like frogs but they didn’t keep them on for long. When I asked them what the issue was and it was always that they were too tight. Two of my boys have longer hair and the bands did pull their hair whenever they were trying to put them on or take them off.  They just never seemed to look very comfortable to me and my kids were constantly fidgeting with them.

Overall, they are cute goggles and are a good price but I’m not sure I would purchase them. The bands on them are finicky and I like to have goggles that aren’t so irritating to change sizing.

Review: Allergy Immune Supplement for Dogs (Peanut Butter)

img_20180827_150840

I have had the opportunity to try out several dog supplements. By now you are probably thinking I am a crazy woman who makes up issues about my dog so I can review supplements. Well this couldn’t be further from the truth. I am a crazy obsessed dog mom that loves my furbabies just like my own children.

Unfortunately, all of them have some sort of issue.

So let’s review here: Odin, the daniff, has anxiety and has suffered some hair loss due to allergies. Diago, the dachshund has really bad allergies. Fiona, the boxer, has allergies and has suffered from stomach issues. Finally, Harley, the yorkie suffers from severe anxiety and panic attacks in the car.

Back to the issue that relates to this supplement, Diago has had numerous surgeries on his ears due to shaking his head and scratching from allergies. All of that scratching and itching caused him to have hematoma’s in both ears that would not heal on their own. After this was finally under control, he still suffers from liquid in his ears and itchiness. He has been on an allergy medicine for 2 years now and still has issues. His ears are constantly cleaned out and he takes benadryl and uses ear drops/flush daily. He has lost his hearing due to the extent of allergies that seems to only affect his ears and his underarms.

img_20180906_150155

I can’t say for certain, because we have only used the treats for about 15 days now but he loves them! His redness on his underarms has toned down some and he doesn’t seem to itch as much. BUT, I honestly don’t think that 15 days is long enough to make an educated decision on the validity of this product. I am a firm believer that supplements work and they do help to a certain extent.

By no means is this a miracle cure to all of your dog’s allergy issues but it might give them comfort. So in my book it is worth the money to give my babies maybe just a little bit of relief. I personally suffer from severe allergies and if there is anything out there that might make me feel even a little better I will take it. I will always do the same for my furbabies.

img_20180827_150853

Diago has severe allergies issues but I hope that this can make him feel better. I hope to see even more of a difference after a months time. I plan to keep buying this supplement and hope that I see an even bigger difference in him later on.

Right now I do recommend this product. This is a great company with quality products. Go check it out!

Review: Massage Balls

 

 

I am an avid lover of massages. Honestly, it is always money and time well spent. My husband is excellent at giving back massages and actually bought me a massage table for my birthday last year. I know this is going to sound super kinky, but I promise it is not 😉 lol! We both enjoy giving each other back massages after our long days of work. I am a yoga instructor, so I enjoy helping him relax and the body fascinates me. I am honestly considering taking a few classes on massage and reflexology. I am always up for trying different ways to massage his back, my favorite are hot stones.

img_20180907_104248

These balls are pretty handy, but honestly you have to be really careful when using them. If you press too hard they hurt, they aren’t as pliable as I thought they would be. They are made of a harder plastic than what I was expecting, which is totally fine but just so you know before purchasing these are a hard material. My kids thought they were dog toys and tried to get the dogs to play with them! They are constantly drawn to them, whether just playing with themselves or trying to use them as dog toys!

img_20180907_104304

I enjoyed having my husband use these on my back but he wasn’t impressed with them. He said they were too pokey and wasn’t helping him to relax. I think they are more for just stimulating the skin instead of being used for a deep tissue massage. Overall, they are nice quality and I could see them lasting a long time but I probably wouldn’t buy them again.
