Review- Lotion Bar from Simple Luxeries.

IMG_4233 (2)I want to start by thanking Simple Luxeries for their sponsorship on this post. I had the pleasure of reviewing Simple Luxuries lotion bar in the lovely forbidden fruit scent. I have to say, I have been pretty blown away by this product. First of all I love the convenience of the roll up tube. I adore I smell. It is complex, deliciously fruity and comforting. It contains pineapple and coconut, so it is soft and not at all overpowering like other companies.
When I saw that there were only four ingredients I wanted to try Grape-seed Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E, I knew these were products that are good for your skin. I have eczema, and this season it has been terrible on my arm. Because of this condition, it is sometimes a little scary to put a lotion on your skin because it can greatly exacerbate the problem and causes further discomfort and even pain. When I saw the lotion has four healthy ingredients I spread a little on my eczema and I could immediately feel it working its healing properties. This $3.00 lotion bar saved me a trip to the dermatologist.
The lotion bars are great for travel and to throw in your purse. They fit the airline size regulation. Every woman has had that moment of horror when they find something has leaked in their bag.
The lotion bars are only $3.00 I think that is an amazing deal. They would make an amazing office gift or stocking stuffer. I will definitely consider simple luxuries for my future gift giving.

Simple Luxuries strives to make the best quality products from the best that nature has to offer. Our products are designed to pamper yourself and your senses.
They make lotion bars, lotion candles, lotion tarts, soaps, and shampoos, lip balms, and dead sea salt scrubs.
I have to say, I plan on being a repeat customer.

Review- Krill Oil

 

This last year I have come to know the wonderful uses of natural oils and all the different ways they can help you. I have tried tea tree oil, borage oil and now I am trying Krill Oil. I received a sample of Krill Oil from Everest Nutrition.

What is krill? Well krill is a little creature that lives in the ocean and is eaten by animals like manta rays and whale sharks; as well as baleen whales such as humpback, blue, and right whales. In Norwegian, the word “krill” means “whale food.”

kril

 

 

According to WebMD, “Krill oil is used for heart disease, high levels of blood fats. high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, depression, premenstrual syndrome, and painful menstrual periods…Krill oil contains fatty acids similar to fish oil. These fats are thought to be beneficial fats that decrease swelling, lower cholesterol, and make blood platelets less sticky. When blood platelets are less sticky they are less likely to form clots.krill2

Of course before beginning any new vitamin regimen, one needs to discuss it with their doctor. Especially if you have any conditions or allergies that could be aggravated by fish or shellfish oil!

My joints are definatly feeling the benefits of krill oil!

Book Review- Firsthand

15798075

You grow up going to church and your truly believe what you are taught by random adult volunteers who may or may not be educated or well versed in biblical texts. Who may or may not be pushing an agenda or taking out some deep seeded frustration out onto youth. Really, when you think about it, it is frightening to think of leaving your kids with an adult and not know what they are being told. Let me give a Firsthand experience, I was taught by my Sunday school teacher that Catholics were not true Christians. When my mother heard this, she quickly intervened. Since then, I have learned to take such teachings with a grain of salt. I believe had this not happened I could’ve become very jaded, disillusioned, bitter and angry against the idea of the church in general . I very possibly could have lost faith altogether.
I believe there are hundreds, if not thousands of other stories like this. The thoughts and feelings are echoed in the book I am reviewing: Firsthand: Ditching Secondhand Religion for a Faith of Your Own.
Many, many young people can absolutely relate to this idea. This book is geared towards them. It is very moving and has a strong and intelligent voice. It was authored by two brothers who do an excellent job of supporting one another as well as the overall idea of this book.
I love this book. I will keep this book and give it to my child when the reach the appropriate.

Book Review-Perfect Pet for Peyton

Today I will be reviewing “A Perfect Pet for Peyton” a book I recieved from the publisher for review.
I first learned about the five love languages at the age of 18 in a home economy class. I thought it was a pretty great idea then, as I do now. I had never thought of applying this to those who we end up loving most: our children. If you are unfamiliar with this theory, The 5 different love languages are: Gift s,Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Physical Touch, and Acts of Service.
A Perfect Pet for Peyton, written by the #1 New York Times bestseller Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne introduces the young reader to the five love languages. Such as in Gary Chapman’s best- selling book ‘The 5 Love Languages’, a book written for adults, the children’s book ‘A Perfect Pet for Peyton’ is a book meant to help children learn the different ways in which we give and receive love.
The book starts with twins Peyton and Penny, as they start their day and head out to with their parents to celebrate their birthday at Mr. Chapman’s Perfect Pet Pal Emporium
Though it is well written I would argue that it is little bit lengthy for younger children. I would probably not recommend this for children under 6. I could see children being a bit confused and having lots of questions for their parents. The illustrations are very detailed, while zi loved them of the animals, I thought the human faces were a little creepy and off-putting. That is a personal preference, as art is so subjective.
I would recommend this overall. I think it make a fabulous baby shower gift, instead of a card.

Birthday in a Box Jewelry Review

costumerneck

I love costuming. I love dressing up in characters and costumes for conventions, and cosplay.
It is really hard to find those perfect accessories. It is particularly difficult to find those perfect accessories when you are on a budget.

I love pieces that I can use for many different things. I hate the idea of buying a piece of jewelry or gloves and only being able to wear it once or twice. It is frustrating because you feel like you are wasting money.

This necklace is incredible!!!! The photos don’t do it justice.

As well as being beautiful, it is well made and versitle. I feel like I could use this necklace to cosplay so many different characters. It would work for a victorian, a vampire or even a civil war ball gown.
I could definatly see it used for speicific chacters like Firefly’s Inara and anything steampunk.

Review-Contact Lens

IMG_341577777

I recently had an oppertunity to review some cosmetic colored contact lenses from The Dolly Eye.

Circle lenses are a lens, usually used in theatrical settings or cosplay to enhance the eye size and color.

They arrived quickly and very safely wrapped in bubble wrap. I had trouble opening the jars they came in, but that gives me comfort in knowing they weren’t tampered with.

I would definitely recommend putting your makeup on after you put your lenses in. Especially if you don’t normally wear contacts and have trouble getting them in, you’ll probably ruin your makeup and have to reapply it.

Although the lenses came in sterile glass bottles, I carefully washed the contacts in my regular contact lens solution. The lenses were a little uncomfortable at first but after about 15 minutes they felt fine. and I could see just fine out of them.

The effect is amazing.I love the way the showed up in the pictures!

Color/Enlargement Effect 5/5

Comfort 4.5/5
