With the amount of laundry I do a week I want a detergent that is good at getting stains out and keeping clothes looking nice. Purex has made UltraPacks with Oxi in them and it does wonderful on removing stains and keeping clothes fresh. 
I have been using it for about a week and I have noticed cleaner clothes than with my old detergent. I love the scent of it too. They come in Mountain Breeze and Free and Clear. I received the Mountain Breeze. It is a light scent and I like it a lot. 


 

There is a load of laundry that came out nice and clean thanks to these packs and then the close up to show you the packs.

*Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary box in hopes of posting about it on my blog. I am in no way obligated to write a positive review. This review is my honest opinion and yours may differ.*







Bestowed Box is a monthly subscription box. The boxes are different each month and contain hand-picked items by celebrity nutritionist Heather Bauer.


She will provide you with healthy snacks, beverages, and much more. The boxes are delivered to your door like other subscription boxes. This box in $19 a month which is not bad at all! You can join here: Join Bestowed Box. You can get $5 off your first box with code 5OFFBESTOWED03.















The August box was packed full of goodies. The items in the box were:


  • Mighty Leaf Iced Tea
  • Seasnax
  • Miracle Noodles
  • Rice Chips
  • Flax Chia Stix
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Noosa Yogurt
  • Cascadian farm crunchy granola bar
  • Reboot




I had never tried rice vinegar and loved it. I used it on my salads because it added flavor without being unhealthy like other dressings can be.



Reboot is an antioxidant and detox assistant. It can help to reduce cell damage and get you back to feeling good and healthy.


Mighty Leaf iced tea is so good and easy to make. You just fill up a pitcher with hot water and steep the tea then put it in the fridge to get cold.


Flax n'Chia stix contained a powder with flax and chia. I used it on salads and added it into meals to sneak it in. They even contain omega 3.



Miracle noodles are healthy noodles. We love noodles in our house and I was happy to be introduced to these. They taste just like noodles. We cooked them in chicken broth like top ramen and they were good.

I enjoyed this box and hope to get you a review of the October box soon!

COMMENTS



Grace Trey is an 18 year old recent high school graduate. Like most teens she is unsure of going to college. Grace is different because she is a great musician like her father. She is thinking of not going to college and going straight into music. When Grace dives into the music she finds her faith and beliefs being tested. She is so close to becoming a star but finds that she may have to give up her faith. Will she keep her faith in Jesus or take the other road?
The author of Grace Unplugged is Melody Carlson and she has sold over 5 million books. She has been a professional writer for twenty years.
You can purchase Grace Unplugged at B&H Publishing: Purchase Grace Unplugged.
The book keeps you hooked in because you want to know more and want to find out what she will do. It teaches you that God should come before anything and if it is in God's will for you it will happen. The book is based off the motion picture that has the same name. The movie will be coming out on October 4 and I am so excited to see it. I love to see movies that I have read the book for. You can watch the trailer below.


There is a second book that goes along with this one. It is called Own It. This book mirrors the film because it also asks what it means to "own" your faith. The book will help you understand what to do when you are hit with real world challenges like Grace was. If you do not have solid beliefs then you are likely to make poor choices.
The authors of Own It are Michael & Hayley DiMarco. Hailey is the author of over thirty books including Mean Girls. Michael is a teacher who has written more than a dozen best selling books.

Now on to the giveaway part. You can enter below to win a copy of both books. There will only be one winner. Good luck!!

Keep Your Little One Cozy With These Trendy Baby Blankets

COMMENTS







One of my brothers is expecting a baby in February and I have been looking into gifts for them. I was happy to be introduced to BabyBlankets.com. The site is full of great gift sets and tons of blankets. They even have burp cloths, receiving blankets, and offer some personalized items. The picture above is one of the cute gift sets and is called the Yellow Jo Jo Giraffe Aspen gift set. It comes with a fleece blanket and the plush in a cute gift box. This is something that I am definitely considering for my brother.


This is another item that really caught my eye. This trendy baby blanket is so cute. I think the colors are what got me. It is called a Plush and Goosebumps blankie. It is more of a security blanket for little ones. This one is something my daughter would love. You really can find most baby blanket needs on the site. I did forget to mention I even saw hooded towels! We are huge fans of those in our house. The best part is that you can personalize them. If you are in need of trendy baby blankets as a gift or just for your kids then this is the place to go.

*Disclosure: I am a Tommy Mommy with Thomas Nelson and am provided complimentary product to facilitate reviews. I am in no way obligated to write positive reviews. This review is my honest opinion and yours may differ.*




Everyone put their little ones to bed differently and maybe tells them I love you good night. This book takes you through different animals putting their babies to sleep. They stretch, get hugs, and even pray before bed. In the book they say God bless you and good night to their young. When I put Christine down to bed I usually just kiss her and say good night but I really like this better. Christine and I really enjoy the book before bed. Reading before bed is a great way to calm her down and get her to sleep.
This book is for 1-4 year old kids and can be bought at Tommy Nelson. You can also enter to win it below.
Good Luck!

This Precious Moments Little Book of Prayers is so cute. I love Precious Moments so had to review this one. It is a little book that has a prayer for everything. From God knows me to a bedtime prayer. You are sure to get your kids praying with this book. Christine doesn't read yet but she really likes the pictures and loves to sit down with this book and look at it.


The book is of course written in a child's perspective so that they will enjoy prayer. These are some of the cutest kids prayers I have seen. They are all great but I really like the prayer A Blessing for my Friends. It is always good to pray for your friends and it is great to teach kids of all ages that.

The book is for ages 1-4 and you can purchase it here: Thomas Nelson

If you would rather, you can enter to win a copy below! Good Luck!

COMMENTS






Do you need a pick me up as a Christian? I know I get discouraged and lose my strength sometimes. In Val Newton-Knowles book No Shame! Only Power she helps you to stay strong. All of us are going through some sort of journey in life and we were not meant to do it alone. God is always with us but we need to become closer to him to live a fulfilled life. This book gives you practical steps on how to walk in the power of God. God predestined us to be winners and to have great lives not to be sorrowful and depressed. The book talks about the how the Holy Spirit was sent as our comforter to help us and give us strength. Without the Holy Spirit we may be weak. It is our job to experience it. The only thing that has the power to strengthen our spirit is a daily diet of the word of God.

About the Author:
Val Newton-Knowles is from the beautiful Bahamas. She is a minister of the Gospel and believes that the word of God is empowerment for mankind. This is the first book she has written. To learn more about her please go to Val Newton-Knowles.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and got a lot of insight out of it. I get weak like everyone else does but when I turn to God I am strong again. Without the word daily I am nothing and I go nowhere. As the book says the Holy Spirit is my comforter and when I press in things begin to look up.

You can purchase your own copy of No Shame! Only Power on Amazon and  Tate Publishing. It is available in E-Book or paperback.

**Disclaimer: I did not receive monetary compensation for this review. I was provided complimentary product to facilitate my review. I was not forced to write a positive review. Your opinions or experiences my differ.**

Red's All Natural  makes burritos and quesadillas. The company came about when the founder was having his usual homemade burrito which his wife had created. He realized that it was so delicious he wanted to share it. They decided to launch Red's All Natural. They make chicken and steak burritos and quesadillas. There are also pork quesadillas and ones with just bean and cheese. There are flavors for everyone even BBQ or buffalo chicken!



I think I have tried every product that they make but not every flavor. I liked the ones pictured above the most. Right now you can purchase the chicken burrito in a breast cancer wrap and 10% of proceeds support it! I thought that was great and made me like the company more. All of the products are all natural, non GMO, no preservatives, and made with antibiotic and hormone free meat. They also use rBGH free cheese.

I am a huge fan of these burritos because they are huge and so yummy! 



You can have lunch for two people with one burrito. The quesadillas also come with two to a pack and are sized to share. They are very flavorful and addicting too. If you want to learn more about the company please go to Red's All Natural online. You can purchase them at Target and Kroger stores.

With a toddler in the house we like candy. The Lovely Candy Company gave me the opportunity to try some of their candies. I was sent chocolate swirl caramels, original caramels, superfruit chews, and fruit chews. I loved the caramels because I am a caramel freak! They were gone in no time. Christine got to try the fruit and super-fruit chews and was a huge fan! I like when I get a candy that you can tell is made with the actual fruit. You could see the seeds from the blueberries in that flavor. The candies are GMO and gluten free.


The fruit and super fruit chews are vegan as well. All of the candies were kind of gooey so I got the idea to free them. Turned out it was a great idea. They were so yummy frozen! They were yummy before that but when its hot out frozen is awesome. If you are in need of a yummy sweet snack you need these candies! To learn more about them please visit Lovely Candy Company.

Wild Garden Hummus Review

Wild Garden Hummus makes hummus dip in jars and for on the go. I was lucky enough to get try some samples of both. The dip is all natural, vegetarian, and even gluten free. It comes in many different flavors too. It comes in traditional, roasted garlic, sun dried tomato, black olive, jalapeno, and even fire roasted red pepper. I got to try all of them except the olive. I am not sad about that because I am not an olive fan at all. One bad experience ruined olives for me forever. 



                                           


I thought that the hummus to go was a great idea! It was very easy to open and eat as I was out during the day. My favorite flavor was the chunky Mediterranean. I loved the chunks in it. Whenever I eat any dip I like it chunky. The rest of the flavors were very good as well. I even got Christine to try it and she likes the traditional. This is definitely my new addiction. I had never tried hummus before this and am very glad I got to try this brand!
If you would like to find out where to purchase or learn more about the product please go to Wild Garden Hummus.

Milton's makes a line of all natural products. They make whole grain breads, multi-grain snack crackers, gourmet crackers, and frozen entre├ęs. Their crackers that I got to try are non GMO, all natural, peanut free, orthodox union kosher, and contain 82% organic content. They are made from organic honey, corn, what, and oats. The crackers had 110 to 130 calories a serving! That is not bad at all when a serving is 17 crackers. They are good sized too.

I was sent the new line of crackers in some unique flavors.


I was sent blueberry multi-grain, original multi-grain, chocolate multi-grain, honey multi-grain, and honey and corn. I loved the honey and corn ones because they reminded me of corn bread. Christine liked the chocolate ones. They were really chocolaty too! The blueberry made a great morning snack and were packed with flavor. All of them were great and I definitely recommend them to anyone needing a yummy cracker snack. If you would like to learn more or find out where to purchase these please go to Milton's baking.

Dermagist is a company that makes skin care products. They make anti-aging creams, lotions, and even eye creams. They have a wide range of products all priced at good prices. 
I got the chance to try out a set. I got a hand lotion, body lotion, and foot and heel repair (badly needed!).



I always have dry skin and my feet are the worst. This was the first ting I tried out. I used it for a week and noticed a difference (sorry no before and after pics). My feet started to feel softer and the cracks started to go away. I used it every day in the morning and at night and put socks on. With continued use I have great feet! The hand hydro-renewal cream was awesome too. I use it after I was my hands (I do a lot) and it has kept them soft and smooth. The body lotion works very well for me. It is not greasy so that makes me like it even more. It goes on and keeps me hydrated throughout the day. If you have some dry skin you better get it hydrated before winter! Dermagist has just what you need for the job.
If you would like to check out these products and more please go to Dermagist online and check them out.
