Hyaluronic Serum – Oz Naturals


I am very pleased to work with Oz Natural and receiving a sample product in exchange for an honest review.

I have used a lot of amazing serums and this is hands down my favorite. I don’t think I could really ask for a more perfect product. There is no smell and goes on so clean and clear.  My skin feels amazing, and I feel like it has really helped to balance the moisture in my difficult to maintain skin.

Another thing I like about this product is that the packaging and company is transparent. The instructions are clear and precise.  I will buy this later in life.

It doesn’t smell at all and I feel like I am not wearing anything on my face when it dries.

This is one product I feel great about supporting and recommending. I look forward to trying other Oz Natural products.

Princess Aurora Costume from Wholesale Costumes

I adore costumes.

Lately, I have seen more and more Disney cosplays at cons and in social media, and in particular, Disney princesses.

Another trend? Jedi Disney Princesses. Which is just as fun as it sounds.


So I was excited to partner with Wholesale Costume Reviewers and to get my hands on this Aurora costume in exchange for an honest review.

I saw Maleficant in theatres and I really enjoyed it. I’ve had my eye on doing more Disney costumes as of late.

I decieded for my first Disney cosplay I would try out Aurora. I liked the movie and loved how Aurora’s gentle and trusting nature created Maleficant’s character arc and storyline. I also chose this because I liked the costume and I could wear this one with my natural hair and not have to mess with a wig!

The dress itself is very dramatic. I feel like it makes an impact when you wear it. It definitely says  princess!


The weakest part for me it the headpiece. It is a gold wire ring with some fabric leaves on it. It doesn’t quite make the dramatic and fairytale like impact that I wanted.  I will deifntly be adding pink flowers to it to make it more fun and fantastic. I personally don’t think there is any costume that will fit every single person’s needs without any alteractions or additions.

The sleeves are tight, not a question. If you have a little bit of a bigger chest, I would recommend buying a size up because there isn’t much give.

One thing I liked about the fabric is that the gold was kindof an ombre color, where in some light it had more pink and some it had more gold to it. That is a fun touch.

It closes with Velcro in the back. It definitely needs a slip.

Warning: there is lots of fine gold glitter and you know that gets everywhere! That doesn’t really bother me but it might bother some. The pink flowers detailing is a very interesting touch, I like it, but I think I might add some white paint to add a bit of contrast. They are painted on, not embroidered or silk screened.

Overall, I would recommend this dress. You might want to make a few alterations to make it special to you. But I am very happy with it!

Book Review: Headstrong


Fifty-two inspiring and insightful profiles of history’s brightest female scientists.

In 2013, the New York Times published an obituary for Yvonne Brill. It began: “She made a mean beef stroganoff, followed her husband from job to job, and took eight years off from work to raise three children.” It wasn’t until the second paragraph that readers discovered why the Times had devoted several hundred words to her life: Brill was a brilliant rocket scientist who invented a propulsion system to keep communications satellites in orbit, and had recently been awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation. Among the questions the obituary—and consequent outcry—prompted were, Who are the role models for today’s female scientists, and where can we find the stories that cast them in their true light?      

Headstrong delivers a powerful, global, and engaging response. Covering Nobel Prize winners and major innovators, as well as lesser-known but hugely significant scientists who influence our every day, Rachel Swaby’s vibrant profiles span centuries of courageous thinkers and illustrate how each one’s ideas developed, from their first moment of scientific engagement through the research and discovery for which they’re best known. This fascinating tour reveals these 52 women at their best—while encouraging and inspiring a new generation of girls to put on their lab coats.

If you have been following my blog at all you know I love books and I greatly enjoy reviewing them. It has been a little while though, since I have read a book that I couldn’t put down. So I knew when I saw Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science and the World. I jumped at the opportunity to get a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I absolutely adored this book. It is an inspiring, uplifting and enjoyable read for a feminist like me. I hope to pass this book on to future generations of young women. As a child , my hero was Eugenie Clark, a female scientist who was the first women inducted into the Jacque Custoe Society.  I would have loved to read about more amazing female scientists. I recommend this to any girl who has an interest in women’s studies or science.


Book Review- Effortless Healing


I was pretty disappointed with this book.

First of all, I feel like most of what I read was stuff I already know, drink more water, make sure you get enough sleep, get your hugs when you can. I feel like that is pretty common knowledge.

Most of this book felt like common knowledge backed up by statistics. I didn’t feel like it was effortless at all. Unless you consider huge lifestyle changes effortless.

The biggest thing that was a turn off for this book for me was in Healing Principle 5, which was about vitamin d and sun exposure. The author recommends that the reader spend time in the sun, and use a tanning bed in the winter, without sunscreen.  I was absolutely horrified by this advice. I can’t think of a doctor who would seriously recommend prolong sun exposure without any kind of protection.  It is a well-known fact that skin cancer is a serious threat and I cannot pretend that this book recommending something that is known to be bad for you doesn’t bother me a lot. Yes, you need vitamin d, yes a little sun is good for you, but don’t act like skin cancer doesn’t exist.

There was an interesting bit about you air intake capacity, and I will continue to research some of the ideas in this book, but honestly, this isn’t one I would recommend without hesitation.

I received a free book in exchange for an honest review.


Maxasorb B12


I love trying the newest technology in skin care, so I am happy to have this post powered by Brandbacker.

Maxasorb B12 is scientifically formulated to topically delivery Vitamin B12. Similar technology as our patented B-12 Patch is used in this skin soothing lotion. Each full application of lotion provides 320 micrograms of Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) plus 120 micrograms of Vitamin B3 (niacin) and 10 micrograms of Folate.

Maintaining overall energy levels and cognitive abilities supports a healthy lifestyle. Vitamin B12 and folate help preserve DNA integrity and are important for lowering homocysteine levels. Key medical experts even suggest that all healthy adults over 50 years of age supplement their diets with 100 to 400 micrograms per day of Vitamin B12.

Using Maxasorb B12 as directed is a safe and reliable method of absorbing key B-Vitamins. Infused with antioxidants and moisturizers, greaseless Maxasorb is easily absorbed into your skin. Each 1.7 ounce bottle delivers 30 applications of lotion in protected and measured amounts. Natural ingredients assure this lotion is gentle to your skin.

So far I like this product, It makes my hands feel very soft.  I only use it a little bit at a time, I have yet to try it on my face as of yet because right now I have some fun acne  that is currently hindering my skin care product experimentation. (First world problems.)

It feels a little thicker than most lotions I tend to use, this one is light pink and smells faintly of peppermint.

It includes natural ingredients like coconut oil, aloe and witch hazel. One thing to note is that it is only for use once a day and a little at a time. It is also only approved for children 12 and over. Consult a doctor before using on a child younger than 12.

Book Review- God Bless My Boo Boo


Even the smallest scratches, bumps, and scrapes can sometimes be traumatic for children. When simple injuries happen, God Bless My Boo Boo is like a warm hug that helps ease the pain. Comforting, sweet, and sometimes silly rhymes guide readers through adorable scenes of baby animals and their boo boos and remind children that God is there to help. Just like Mommy Zebra makes a scraped knee better or Mommy Walrus helps tend a toothache, real moms will be able to use this book to make their little ones’ boo boos all better too!

I knew when I saw this book, I had to snatch it up. So, in exchange for an honest review, I did just that.

God Bless My Boo Boo  by Hannah C Hall is just what it sounds like, it is a sweet little picture book about dealing with injuries. For little kids, a minor scrape or bump can be very upsetting. This is a nice way of dealing with this scared tears.

The illustrations are sooo adorable, they are made up of cute and fuzzy animals being comforted by their parental counterparts.

I really like this very sweet little book.I think that this  would be a great bedtime story for a sick child.It would also make for a very lovely baby shower gift.

Book Review- John Shaw’s Guide to Nature Photography


An updated bestseller, this book of extraordinarily beautiful photographs of nature contains state-of-the-art instruction on how any photographer can aim for equally impressive results every time a camera is focused on the great outdoors.

Even highly skilled photographers are often baffled by the problems facing them when they work outdoors. But with this exceptional field guide in hand, every photographer—beginner, serious amateur, semi-pro, and pro—can conquer the problems encountered in the field. Using his own exceptional work as examples, the author discusses each type of nature subject and how to approach photographing it. Specific advice and information cover selection of equipment and lenses; how to compose a shot; how to get close ups; and other tips covering a range of techniques to enrich various types of nature photographs.

I consider myself a photographer. I have worked hard to become a better photographer over the years and I think it shows in my work. So I was excited to get my hands on this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I greatly enjoyed going over the basics and learning a few tricks. Nature is one of my favorite things to capture on film and I am so thrilled to be able to use this book as a general reference book for my nature photography as well as other genres.

I feel like products like this help to eliminate those dark circles and hopefully eliminate those kinds of emotional baggage.

She formulated goPURE Naturals with the goal of developing a brand that women can trust to contain only the purest and natural ingredients, while making them look and feel their best.

How can you not love that?
