Review: Love and Blessed box 'Strength' for the month of May

I received my May Loved + Blessed box which is a subscription box that sends christian encouragement out to others. Below, we have the contents of the box which I'm excited to get into! 

As I look at the information card, I see that our theme for this month is STRENGTHHere is our encouragement that is on the inside of the Love + Blessed box. I love that these themes speak to our lives. They are meant to give us encouragement, the motivation to keep going when things get tough. We serve a wonderful Heavenly Father who loves us so much and wants the very best for His children.

We have a mini poster which says, "Broken Crayons Still Color". I love these because each poster is really special and they give much to ponder. 

Also, there is an anchor sticker which says, "The Anchor Holds in Spite of the Storm." I remember this song many years ago.

 During the time of Roman persecution, the anchor was an ancient key Christian symbol in identifying themselves. Jesus is the Anchor that holds our lives together when we're in troubled waters.

We have a red Scripture card that has anchors all over it and when you turn it over, it has 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 on it. It reads, " We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed, perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not abandoned, struck down, but not destroyed." I am really loving these cards and having them in my wallet for encouragement! Great verse of Scripture for strength. Under the Scripture, it says where it can be located in the Bible but, it is hard to see in red what it says. If it was in white, like the Scripture itself, we could definitely see it better. Love this verse!

Now, onto what's in the white box! It contains a gold anchor bracelet and on the card below, on the back of it, it has instructions on how to wear it. 

I did have some trouble figuring out how to wear this, but managed!

 Here I am wearing it on my wrist! I like it and I could wear this several different ways. :)

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.
