I was absolutely thrilled to be chosen to review this organic product made by DEL ORGANICS.  I have become a huge lover of organic products and I am always looking for products that actually do what they claim to do.

I have been using this product for a few weeks now and I have been very happy with it. It comes in a gorgeous brown bottle with a lovely label. It is dispensed via a dropper and I love that you can control the amount. Droppers work much better than any other method that I have found.
The color of this serum is orange and gives your skin a nice glow after you apply it.
It has a very subtle, pleasant scent. I have not been able to place the scent as of yet. A friend of mine said citrus. But it just doesn't smell citrusy to me.
I was using this product at night before I went to bed. I have changed that however due to the lovely glow that it gives my skin. I have had many compliments on my skin tone due to this product.
I wanted to try this product to see how it helped with preventing wrinkles and blemishes. But after a few trips to the pool I remembered that the sun does funny things to my skin. I have always experienced redness known as rosacea. Thanks for the reminder Mr. Sun.
Since I have started using this product I have noticed a huge difference in the redness that I normally get every year. It is diminishing and that is a huge factor for me. I have never found a product that would actually help me to prevent the redness associated with rosacea. It also helped it to be less noticeable after it occurred.
The fact that this product is organic and blended and bottled in the USA makes me even more pleased with this serum. I would recommend this product to anyone that has problems with blemishes, redness or wrinkles. It truly is an All-In-One product that is affordable. I did receive this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

"GOD BLESS AMERICA" A Patriotic Coloring Book

"GOD BLESS AMERICA" A Patriotic Coloring Book

Unlike a lot of people, I prefer adult coloring books that actually tell a story. This coloring book contains not only pages to color but quotes from famous people as well as scriptures from the Bible. This book offers you some history behind this great nation.
This coloring book is something that I can use to teach my child about the history of the United States.
Some of the uncolored pages of this coloring book are absolutely gorgeous. They just need a little color to make them even more so.
I prefer color pencils to color the inside pages. But the outside pages will be done with gel pens. As you can see in the picture above, it has already been started and gives you an idea as to how beautiful this will turn out when you are done. The back cover hasn't been touched.
The pages have the ability of being removed from the book. This is not an option I will use however. For me this is something that I intend on coloring with my child and saving for years. I guess you could say this will be a memento of times we spent together.
I received this book complimentary for testing and review purposes. You can find this coloring book on Amazon.

The Never Open Desert Diner by James Anderson


Ben Jones, is an independent truck driver along Highway 117. It is a very lonely highway that is well known to Ben as he travels it daily.  He loves his job and his customers who are very clever and interesting characters. I personally found the birthday incident one of my favorite parts of the book. He meets Claire who has taken refuge in a house in the area with her cello. From the moment he sees her he is taken with her. But she is running from something, and that will put them both in danger. I am not going to delve any deeper into the plot of this novel as I hate spoilers. 

This is James Andersons first novel and I found it very interesting. It was not one of those books that I just couldn't put down. But I enjoyed picking it up and reading whenever I had time. This book was written in a very straightforward easy to understand lingo that I loved. 

I will definitely add this book to my shelves. It is a book I will enjoy reading again. You can find a copy on Amazon. I received this novel complimentary for my honest and unbiased review and all opinions are my own.

Just in time for Summer

I have been needing to review this product for a few weeks but we had not seen any mosquitos until yesterday. I sent my 6-year-old out to play and he came in with mosquitos bites. So I broke out the Cliganic Insect Repellent Bands. 

These are 100% Natural, Safe and Deet Free, made of a special blend of non-toxic natural essential plant oils: Geraniol Oil, Lemongrass Oil, and Citronella Oil. 
One size fits all, these are really stretchy and I was able to wear them as well as my child. 
These offer 250 hours of protection. When we were done playing outside I simply put them back in their foil pouches and sealed them back up.
These are not intended for children under the age of 3. Maybe because children that age like to put things in their mouth. 
These repellent bands are waterproof so you can wear them to parks, water parks, beaches, camping, hiking. Anywhere you think you might be attacked by those pesky insects. 
Cliganic offers you a 100% satisfaction guarantee, Risk Free. If you are not happy with the product they will replace it or refund your money. Win, win

This is my child and this is the way he dresses most always unless we are going somewhere. He only ever puts clothes on because I make him, haha. However, around the house he is fine. He was in the backyard and came to me because he was itchy and something kept biting him. So, I got the Cliganic Insect Repellent Bands out and placed one on him. These come in all different colors to appease the pickiest child or adult. 
Of course, he could not leave it alone because he is a boy and he has to pick at everything. But I managed to keep it on him for about 3 hours while he was outdoors. He had no more mosquito bites when he came in. 
With all of the mosquito born diseases out there, we need something to help protect our children. Yes, there are products on the market that can help us achieve that. But do you ever get tired of re-applying products on your child? Does your child have allergies? My child does so I have to be very cautious when it comes to these types of products. 
So in ending, I have to say that we love these and will be using them all Summer. 
With all the mosquito-borne diseases that are around today. I feel great about my child being protected.
These are Non-Toxic and Kid Safe. Wear them around your wrist or ankle. The scent associated with these smell like citronella. The scent is noticeable but not very strong. If you guys would like to check out the product, you can find them on Amazon.

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

I just had to share this picture. My little man has graduated from kindergarten and I could not be prouder. We have come a long way and I love him so much. Isn't he just the sweetest thing and he has the most awesome personality on his good days. Yes, he has bad days like the rest of us but raising this baby has been totally worth it. After losing my son I swore I would never love another child. I did not want to experience the heartache again. But God put this little man in my life for a reason. Even though we have had some bad times. The good times make it all worth while.
Nini loves you little man and I will always be here for you. You are my life and my love. "Congratulations" and lets do it again next year.

MiYang Women's Backless Floral Spa Beach Dress Swimwear

This is the first time I have ever ordered a swimsuit online, ever. I saw this one and thought it was adorable and I had to have it. I needed a swimsuit that was cute as well as it had to cover my stomach. The blue peacock print is what attracted me to this suit, as well as the design. I do not think it matters what size you are if you own one of these suits. They are a great suit to add to your closet.

I am normally very cautious when I buy a swimsuit because honestly there are some out there that are just cheaply made and fall apart very easily. They also have a tendency to fade when used in chlorinated pools and while in the wash. I did not experience this with MiYang's suit at all. This suit is machine washable but I prefer to hand wash. I think we all know not to use a dryer when it comes to drying our suits. So I hung it out to dry. But not in the sun. Never dry your suit in the sun. That will fade most all fabrics. I experienced no fading after swimming in our community pool several times. Nor did it fade when I washed and dried it.

This suit is made very well. It is 82% Nylon, 18% Elasten, 80% Nylon and 20% Terylen. I am not sure why the material is listed as it is. I assume that it is talking about different parts of the suit.
The swimsuit feels like a second skin while it is on, yet it breathes. It is very comfortable and I have had numerous compliments on it while at the pool. The girls all want to know where I purchased this suit so I have given them the link. You will find that link at the bottom of my review here.

The chest area is padded so please be aware of that when you are choosing your size. However, there is a small place where you can take the padding out that I just noticed, ha. I seriously do not know how I missed that when I put it on. The straps are adjustable so that you can make it less revealing if you so desire.

Please note: These suits run a bit small so it is very important to know your size. This seller is awesome and if you message them they should be able to help you with that.

This suit is excellent for anyone who loves a fashionable, cute suit for the beach, pool or pool party. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. If you would like to purchase one for yourself or if you just want to check them out please follow the link below. Have an awesome day and a fantastic Summer.
