Review: Yorkshire MayFair pillowcases


I received 2 1000 thread gray standard pillow cases by Yorkshire-Mayfair for review purposes. On Amazon, it says the following: 

  • Made of 100% Egyptian Cotton
  • Machine wash cold, tumble dry on low
  • Luxurious 1000 Thread
  • Ultra-Soft and Comfy
  • Shrinkage-proof



When I opened this package up, I saw a huge ink mark on one of the pillow cases. This is NOT what I was expecting. It seriously looks like these pillow cases were used.



 I have tried quite a few times contacting this company through Tomoson and haven't heard back from them about why this came the way it did. Not only did it have this HUGE ink mark, I don't think the quality is as they say...'luxurious'. It certainly wasn't imo. It lacked quality a GREAT deal!  Sadly, I CAN'T recommend this company, Yorkshire-Mayfair to family, friends and readers of my blog for various reasons as entailed.

Review: FoxBrim 100% Pure Jojoba Oil


A long time ago someone gave me a very small Jojoba bottle to use with the Rosacea and Acne that I have. Well, that little bottle didn't last me long. Fast forward to now, I have this big 4 oz dropper bottle of FoxBrim's Certified Organic 100% Jojoba Oil. Jojoba Oil has many uses. Such as on your face, it can be used as a daily moisturizer, makeup remover (or facial cleanser), pre-shave oil and lip treatment. For hair, Organic Jojoba OIl provides exceptional moisture for deep conditioning and nourishment. For your body, you'll find that Organic Jojoba Oil hydrates while creating beautifully supple and moisturized skin. I like to use it so far as a nice moisturizer on my face because I have dry skin. I love this product and when I run out, I will purchase more. You can get your own bottle here on the FoxBrim website or on Amazon.

Review: Loved + Blessed subscription box



I received my first box of Loved + Blessed for review and I couldn't wait to open it up to see what goodness it contained! 


When I opened the box, I saw a large sticker that read, 'Forgiveness' which is the theme for the month of April. This month, it talks about that we've been forgiven and that it's time to forgive ourselves. I know I make mistakes every day and know that it's only by God's grace that I'm forgiven daily. Every day I need God's forgiveness. We all fall short of God's glory. Thank God He is there to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness!


This is a card that that tells you the theme and what's inside the box!


Here is a mini poster that I plan on framing or putting inside my Bible cover. The small card that you see is a Scripture card. There is also a sticker that you can put on anything that you'd like. I'm going to put mine on my iPad mini as a reminder that I'm not perfect just forgiven! :) I noticed there was a slip of paper included which I wasn't sure what it was until I read the Theme card. (see above) I think this is a great way to release any hurt feelings of unforgiveness towards another or to yourself.



This is the other side of the Scripture card of 1 John 1:9. I keep this card in my handbag and it gently reminds me that God wants to forgive us and cleanse us of all unrighteousness if we just confess our sins to Him.


I saw a purple, leather strap cross bracelet in small plastic that I couldn't wait to try on! It can help me to remember the sacrifice that Christ made to save my soul from Hell and that I'll spend eternity with my Lord & Savior. He loves me that so much that He risked everything for me.





The last thing that I saw in my Loved & Blessed box was this 100% Bamboo, embroidered washcloth to remind me that my sins have been washed away. It's very soft and lovely.


Here's the embroidery up close! :)



You can get a monthly subscription box from Love + Blessed for just $10 a month/free shipping. I think it's worth it to have some encouragement every month and I believe it would be a blessing not only to oneself but you could gift it to a family member or a friend that you hold dear.
