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.

Review & Giveway: GMovies


I was really excited for the opportunity to review a site through FlyBy Promotions called: 'gMovies' for 6 months for FREE! It's like Netflix however, it's faith oriented and inspirational. You can stream these movies on your desktop, ipad, or mobile device. gMovies is operated by UP. It's a family friendly television network that is honorable and that's hard to come by these days. I personally love the Dramas, Bible movies, and Animations. For just $4.99 a month, you can pick from almost 300 movies with many different genres! 

I watched 'The Torchlighters: Heroes of the Faith: The Perpetua Story.' The next movie that I want to watch is Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace. I enjoy World War II movies as well and people taking a stand for Christ and dying for their faith. This is one movie that I've been wanting to see for some time now and now, I can! 





I was given a Reader code for my subscribers for 2 FREE wks!! Woohooo!  Sign up here: https://vod.gmovies.com/gmovies/secure/signup?productid=38 AND enter code: FREETRIAL84. 


In addition to the FREE 2 wks, gMovies is giving away a 6 mos. subscription for FREE to 1 of my readers! Yes, that's right! You have a chance to watch lots of movies in a 6 mos. time period. Please enter my giveaway via the Rafflecopter below. Thanks and blessings to all!

Review: Nutraplex Megaberry and Pineapple Coconut Bars



I was given the opportunity by Nutraplex to try two of their bars for review. One of them is the Megaberry Bar and the other one is a Pineapple Coconut one. I was a little leary about these bars being that, I usually don't eat protein bars. I do like a couple of the Luna bars and now, I was going to try these out. So, I opened them up and to my surprise, the Megaberry Bar was seriously so good...great taste, moist and chewy! 


Some of the ingredients in this bar contain: Dates, Chia Seeds, Cranberry, Cashews, Honey, Raisins, Safflower Oil, Blueberries (with sugar, sunflower oil), Strawberries, Raspberries and Acai Powder. 


The Pineapple Coconut bar was ok. It wasn't as moist and it didn't have that wow factor to me like the Megaberry. So, I do prefer the berry one. Some of the ingredients in this bar, are: Dates, Chia Seeds, Cashews, Coconut, Honey, Almonds and Pineapple. 



Both of these bars give you natural energy, are Non-GMO, have Omega 3s, antioxidants and they have natural preservatives along with so much more! 

I discovered while on their website, that they also have the flavors Pomegrante Cherry and Mango Strawberry which sound delicious and I would love to give them a try! You can shop for these bars on the Nutraplex site or you can order from them on Amazon. I recommend these bars as they're tasty and great as a breakfast protein bar or even as a snack during the middle of the day when you need some energy.

Review: La Pedi Bon Pedicure kit


I've never used a Pedicure kit before so I was in for a treat when mine arrived! When I received the La Pedi Bon Callus Remover, I couldn't wait to try it out! Here is what the kit includes: a lovely blue callus remover, replacement roller, a small cleaning brush and a user manual. Batteries are not included. 


So, I got to work using the roller on my dry feet. You can also use this if your feet are wet also. I was thrilled to see the dry patches literally shredding off of me! :) I do recommend placing a paper towel, bath towel, napkins, or tissues...whatever you have on hand, under your feet so that the dead skin that's coming off doesn't go in your carpet or all over your hard wood floor. :) You don't have to press hard with this, if you do, the roller will stop. Gross pic below, I know, BUT it was getting rid of the dead skin and I was happy about that!  


It takes a little getting used to but I was pretty pleased with my results. At the end, I put lotion on my feet and put my socks on. Now, my feet were a little red from the roller but I'm learning not to do one area for no more than 2-3 seconds. 


Cleaning the roller is very easy to do with the small brush and running the remover along the tap water per instructions.

 I'm pleased with my 'La Pedi Bon Callus Remover' and if you're interested in purchasing a kit of your own, click HERE. Thanks for reading and please post below in the comment section if you've decided to get one! :)

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above in exchange for a review of my honest opinion.
