Review: Nescafe & Coffee Mate

I recently received a free coffee/creamer mix in a canister by Nescafe & Coffee Mate! I received the flavor I requested, which was Hazelnut. It was delish and this will definitely continue to be what I grab for when I want a cup of coffee! The bonus is definitely not having to purchase a creamer separately! I also received 3 coupons for more free coffee/creamers! Thanks Smiley360!

Review: 100% pure Moroccan Argan Oil

I've never tried Argan Oil before so I was in for a treat when I was sent a 2 oz dropper bottle of 100%  pure 'Argan Oil' from UNI. There are many uses for Argan Oil such as a cuticle softener, body oil, a leave in conditioner as well as a facial moisturizer. There are many more ways that you can apply Argan Oil.

This Argan Oil contains ingredients that were imported from Morocco. They are very simple. Organic and Natural Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Vitamin E & Essential Fatty Acids. 

It has no fragrance and it doesn't have that greasy feel to it. You don't need that much when applying with the dropper as a little bit will indeed go a long way. I love this and I had just ran out of facial moisturizer so this is perfect!

Right now, on Amazon, you can purchase a bottle of your own for only $14.27. It is backed by a money back guarantee so if you don't find it works for you, let them know!

Review: Influenster ModaVoxBox

I was so excited to receive a new box from @Influenster to try out, the ModaVoxBox! I really enjoyed pretty much everything in here!

Loved the Puff's tissues. It came in a nice, soft pack and I used them immediately. I have use for them everyday. :) Needless to say, I went through these pretty quickly!

I enjoyed the Swiss Miss Cocoa Milk Chocolate. I received 1 packet of this to use with hot milk. This was delicious and I topped it off with mini marshmallows!

The Jergens lotion was great. I use it everyday and brought it to work for us to use in the classroom. I'm going to need a larger bottle of this esp with this cold weather!

I received a tube of Rimmel London Lipstick and also their white lip liner. I used the lipstick once. It was too bright of a color for me, and I didn't like the white lip liner. I liked the new Rimmel Mascara, Scandal Eyes in 'Rockin Curves', in black.

The Clairol 'Angel Food' in Honey Apricot had such a great smell to it when opened. I kept opening it to smell the sweet fragrance! I loved putting it on my hair and then all you do is just comb it through and rinse!

Resource contains natural spring water with natural electrolytes for taste. It came in a HUGE, 23.7 oz bottle of deliciousness! Fresh tasting and healthy! Can't go wrong with that!

Overall, a really wonderful box of goodness!

I received all items contained in this box from Influenster. They were complimentary for me to test and review the products. All opinions are my own.

These are very healthy~all natural and under 100 calories and they come in 16 flavors! Each pouch that I tried had a really nice flavor to them.

Review: NIV Real Life Devotional Bible for Women

 You spilled coffee on your shirt before walking out the door. Ran late to your appointment. Snapped at your children, then regretted it all day. And spent an hour at the grocery store with no dinner on the table to show for your efforts.

 A typical day has come and gone.

 Life is full of obligations, emotions, and relationships. Some are life-giving, yet sometimes the weight and responsibility of everyday life is heavy to bear. As wives, mothers, friends, and daughters, we need to know we’re not alone. We long for someone who understands—someone to help us find perspective.

 When our days are long, and our nights are restless, it’s easy to think we should be able to handle things on our own. Or that no one struggles like we do. And that’s when we need a friend … to encourage us, to understand us, and help us become the woman God wants us to be.

 You’ll find that friend on the pages of the NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women. Filled with insightful daily devotions written by Lysa TerKeurst and the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries, the devotions in this Bible will meet you right where you are, in the good days and in the hard days, in the car pool line or the doctor’s office. With God’s truth as the foundation, this Bible will help you maintain a peace-filled place of balance in spite of your life’s hectic pace.

  I had the opportunity recently to receive and review the 'Real Life Devotional Bible for Women'. I jumped at the chance! It is a soft Italian Duo Tone and the colors are a gorgeous Sea Glass/Caribbean Blue. There is a light blue bookmark in it and the pages are lined beautifully in silver. This Bible features the NIV, 366 daily devotions from the women of Proverbs 31 Ministries, Author Biographies and also includes a helpful subject index. I really love this Bible and I'm cherishing it so much! The outside is beautiful and the inside of course is amazing, it being the very Word of God! Inside of this, you can follow the devotions of let's say Renee Swope. She's a favorite author of mine!

 The retail value of this Bible is $44.99 but you can pick up a copy at at a great price! I recommend this Bible to my friends, family and readers of my blog.

Review: Lumo Project The Gospel of John Promo

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Official Website:
About the film:
A ground breaking, multi-language biblical film resource transforming the way we discover, study and engage with the life of Jesus through the four New Testament Gospels.
The Lumo Project is a ground breaking, multi-language biblical film resource transforming the way we discover, study and engage with the life of Jesus through the four New Testament Gospels: redefining the standard of visual Biblical media. The Lumo Project presents four films – one for each Gospel account – that will revolutionise the way we all experience the story of Jesus and the world of First Century Palestine in which he lived.  

The Gospel of John takes the story of Jesus from John’s gospel with its own unique characteristics. For John, Jesus is the Word of God made human. John is clear that that when encounter Jesus, we encounter God.  The gospel writer points to the miracles (the ‘Signs’) and teachings as evidence of Jesus’ special relationship as the divine Son of God. This full-length feature film about the life of Jesus takes the actual Gospel text as its script, word for word, unedited. Five years in the making, this epic production has been critically acclaimed by leading religious scholars as a unique and highly authentic telling of the Jesus story. Narrated by leading British actor David Harewood (‘Homeland’, ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘Merchant of Venice’) it is based on the latest theological, historical and archaeological research. With specially constructed sets and the extraordinarily authentic villages and countryside of rural Morocco, it immerses the viewer in the world of first century Palestine. 


I recently had the opportunity to view a special promo of 'The Gospel of John' from the Lumo Project. Like any Biblical movie, you pray that it'll reach the masses of people and lots will get saved. What I do like about the film, is that it's taken directly from the Gospel of John, word for word. I like that the people are middle eastern and not from western civilization playing the parts.

What I don't like is that it's narrated *throughout* the entire film. I'd rather hear the actors engage and hear them actually speak what is spoken of in the Gospel of John. For me, this film is great for reaching out to the unsaved. I just would've appreciated it more if it was presented in a different way of engagement.

 Thank you to FlyBy Promotions for this opportunity on viewing the special promo of 'The Gospel of John'!
