Audrey Bunny By Angie Smith Review/Giveaway

1
COMMENT






This is the cutest kids book I have seen in a long time. It is about a little bunny who is in a toy store. The bunny is never picked by any of the kids and feels like it is because of a mark on her. One day a little girl named Caroline comes in looking for her birthday gift and she chooses the bunny. Caroline names the bunny Audrey and loves the bunny a lot. Audrey is still self conscious of her spot above her heart. She thinks she is not normal and she tried to hide it. I do not want to give away the whole story but the bunny learns that God made everyone special and everyone is different. As it says in Psalm 138:14 "I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." 

You can watch a book trailer here: Audrey Bunny Trailer

This is a great book to use to teach your child that everyone is made the way they are for a reason and that they are the work of God. God does not make mistakes including you. It is a very heart warming story. You can buy the book here: Buy Audrey Bunny You can also enter to win it below. Good luck!!

I know some people do not want to admit it but yes Christmas is coming! It will be here before we know. I was lucky enough to get a personalized ornament to review.  Ornament Shop is a great online store that is full of ornaments. They can be personalized with a name and that was the best part to me. This is Christine's first Christmas where she will understand opening gifts. I ordered a cute red snowman ornament and had her name put on it. As a kid I had ornaments with my name on them and loved them. To this day I still have a few of them. I want this ornament to be something she can have all the way up to her adult years. 
The ornament I ordered is glass and very durable. The ornament is of high quality and I believe it will last for many years to come. I can not wait to see it on out tree.







I loved the wide selection that they had. The selection really surprised me. I do not think I have seen so may ornaments in one place before. It was really easy to order too. I think the ornaments would make great gifts for kids or other family members. If you would like to learn more or order please go to Ornamentshop.com. I hope you find something you like!

A witch who demands humanity.

The immortal families who denied her of it.

Two mortals commanded to right the wrong.

That is the fate of the urban princess Anasztasia and the renegade prince Matthias, born shockingly mortal to two immortal families. If they go back in time and restore the witch’s humanity, she will grant them immortality. She will also break a 550 year-old curse that imprisons Matthias’s family in their ancestral homeland and exiles Anasztasia’s family from it.

But to make their lives their own, the heirs must return to the most dangerous day in their families’ past, Easter Sunday, 1457. This is the day Vlad III, aka Dracula, massacred all nobles and their families involved in the death of his father and older brother. 

How can Anasztasia and Matthias reverse the past when their families will not speak of their wrongs? How can they refuse when the witch owns their lives?

The Witch’s Salvation is a time-travel fantasy weaved around myth, historical fact, and a whole lot of creative license.

Life Changing!

COMMENTS






As most of my readers know I recently started selling Avon products. It was life changing for me and I want to share more about it. I am a stay at home mom and student right now. I was not making any money or helping with the bills. I was stuck at home a lot and did not get out to do anything ever.

Since I started selling Avon I am out more even if Christine goes we get out to prospect and have fun running my business together. My fellow Avon ladies enjoy seeing Christine at business events. I am so glad they were accepting of me taking her with me. I do not have a babysitter in the area so she goes with me a lot. Thankfully she is a good baby and is quiet and does not cause problems.

I have started making money to help with bills and have met some great ladies while doing so. Avon is not what it used to be. 


There is a new makeup collection, Mark products, kids products, new scents and perfumes, candles and home products and much more. If you have someone on your Christmas list that you need to shop for Avon is the place to go. I was surprised when I saw all of the new stuff. The best part is that it is all at a great price! 

The Avon company has been around for a very long time. All of the products are 100% guaranteed. When  a company puts that behind them they must be good. I am enjoying what I do and would love to have more people on my team.

Avon costs $10 to start up and that will include your kit. Your kit has two sets of ten brochures for your first two campaigns. You will get 40% off of your first 4 orders of $50 or more! The best part is you can be anywhere to join my team. 

All you have to do is go to Join Now and use reference code angelamckinney85.

Now is the best time to join and start making some extra holiday cash!!

Here is a sneak peek at a special this campaign. Think stocking stuffers!

**Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned below for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordanc with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."**







In the book One Way Love the author Tullian Tchividjan believes the world needs to change and needs more God. The book is about helping everyone not just the good getting better. Grace is not from our world but from God. Grace will change your life and the book talks about how. To me Grace is acknowledging that I have done wrong but knowing that I am forgiven for the wrong done. As Christians we sometimes feel we need to be perfect in everything we do and not rely on the grace of God. We tend to forget that it is a gift and it is ours no matter what. As long as Jesus is in our hearts we are forgiven.


This book is powerful. The author is actually Billy Graham's grandson. He is the senior pastor of a church in Florida. He has authored six book as well. You can watch a little video on the book below. You can also visit the book website at: One Way Love Book to learn more.

**Disclosure: I'm a Tommy Mommy and received these books in exchange for this review. However, all opinions are my own and yours may differ.**

I love these books and have since I was a kid. I was so excited when I saw them as an option for October. I am very happy to see that they are still around for kids to enjoy. 



It's True written by Mercer Mayer is all about learning the importance of telling the truth.
Little Critter gets carried away with a few lies he ends up telling and decides to run away from home. He won't make it far when his grandpa picks him up and explains why he should tell the truth. Littler Critter learns that even little fibs can get out of hand. 
This book is great to teach kids why telling the truth is important. I especially love how they bring up the bible in the book and use it to teach the lesson. If you would like to purchase It's True please go to: It's True.


You Go First written by Mercer Mayer is about taking turns.
Little Critter thinks he needs to be first in everything from getting milk at snack to winning the race. He quickly learns that taking turns and letting others go first can pay off and make you feel better. He learns that we need to treat others as we want to be treated. 
This book had a great lesson as well. I love the examples used and how they make it so the kids will understand it better. If you would like to purchase You Go First please go to: You Go First.

Both of these books are great tools to teach your kids about everyday things and use the bible to do so. You can enter to win this set of books below now! Good luck!

Halloween is Coming!

COMMENTS






As a Christian family we really do not do Halloween. I plan to take Christine trunk or treating at a church and hope to get some pictures to post. We are also going trick or treating with my mom next weekend. Our apartment is not all decorated like some people do but we have a few decorations.




We are carving pumpkins tomorrow I think. The fuzzy jack o lantern is an Avon product that is holding our candy for any trick or treaters we may get. The treat bag is for the moms with some special Avon goodies in it. What are you handing out to kids this year? We have the kiddies mix which has tootsie pops, tootsie rolls, and dots in it. I may throw in a little hugs drink for the kids too. 

Christine is going to be a little lady bug. I think it will match her red hair.



That is Christine's costume but we are going to put a long sleeve black onesie and black leggings because it will be cold here. I do not dress up but I might buy some kind of funny shirt saying this is my costume. What are you and your kids going as? Please share your family Halloween traditions here or on my Facebook page.

I hope everyone has a fun safe Halloween.

My View:

I could not put this book down. I love when I am drawn in within the first chapter or few pages of a book. That is exactly what happened with this book. When you stay up to read a book you know it is good. I am so glad to be part of this book tour.
I thought this was the great time for this book tour with Halloween coming up. The book has witches, curses, travels in time, romance, and even suspense. It keeps you hooked in and wanting more. 
I do not want to give the whole book away but it was a great read an I highly recommend it!

Oogies Popcorn Review

*Disclosure: I am was provided complimentary product to facilitate this review. I am in no way obligated to write a positive review. This review is my honest opinion and yours may differ.*








I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to try out Oogie's Gourmert Popcorn. They sent me a variety of flavors and I enjoyed them all. We are a popcorn loving family. 



I was sent kettle corn, smoked gouda, spicy chipotle & lime, movie lovers, white cheddar,hatch chile con queso, cracked pepper & asiago, and sindried tomato and parmesan. Christine loved the kettle corn because it is a little sweet. It was the one that disappeared first. 


My favorites were the smoked gouda which really tastes like it says. I love when the flavor is in the name and it actually tastes like that. I also liked the sun-dried tomato and parmesan a lot. If you like unique flavors then this is the popcorn company for you!

V8 V-Fusion® Refresher Review

*Disclosure: I am was provided complimentary product to facilitate this review. I am in no way obligated to write a positive review. This review is my honest opinion and yours may differ.*




I got the opportunity to try out V8 V-Fusion® Refresher in tangerine passionfruit and black cherry berry. We loved both flavors and love the benefits as well. The juices are made with both fruits and vegetables (I did not tell Christine that). They are naturally sweetened and do not contain artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. There is only 100 calories per serving too! This juice is also an excellent source of vitamin C. I got it at a great time because I had a cold and I have heard vitamin C helps with colds.

The juice is available in four different flavors; black cherry berry, cranberry grape, tangerine passionfruit, and peach strawberry. I think we are going to try the peach strawberry next. They retail for $3.49 per 46-ounce bottle. This is comparable to other juice drinks. You can find it in the juice aisle of your local grocery or mass merchandise stores nationwide. If you would like to learn more about the juice please visit V8 Juice Online.
