Loving my....liveWIRE eyelash curler

Let's talk make-up.

As women, I think make-up is one of our most fun privileges. It might not literally be a necessity, but it's pretty much a must-have!

Personally, my favorite feature is my eyes, and I love to help enhance them with make-up. Eye shadow, eye liner, mascara...I love them all!

Just as important, though, is a quality eyelash curler. I'm shocked that not everyone utilizes an eyelash curler! It's a game-changer, and something you seriously need to add to your arsenal if you don't currently own one. Seriously - did you know that the easiest way to create the illusion of  thicker and longer eyelashes is by using an eyelash curler? And that by curling your eyelashes, your eyes really will appear larger and really enhance your eyes to give you an outstanding look!

I recently had the opportunity to review the Live Wire Beauty premium eyelash curler.

Contrary to popular belief, not all eyelash curlers are created equally. There are definitely some great features to this one, including:

  • NO PINCHING OR PULLING - this professional grade curler has been designed to avoid painful pinching and pulling!
  • NO REFILLS NEEDED - most eyelash curlers require a lifetime of replacements. liveWIRE beauty's eyelash curler is made with a hyperelastic sillicon pad that springs back to life immediately upon use. The only eyelash curler you will need for the rest of your life!
  • LONG LASTING CURL - treat yourself to beautifully curled lashes that last ALL day long!
liveWIRE Beauty's professional grade eyelash curler is the best choice because:

- Create lashes that appear full, thick, and give you a beautiful "wide-eyed" look
- Never requires refill pads! The eyelash curler that will last your entire life.
- Easy to use, ergonomic design engineered to give you the perfect curl every time.  
These claims are true! After weeks of using, I've found that it truly doesn't pull on my eyelashes. I'd say that's the most important feature - we definitely don't want to be pulling out eyelashes! Also, the silicone pad is nice and squishy - effective for curling lashes without damaging them. Lastly, I love that you don't need refills. 

This curler is available on Amazon for purchase here, which is convenient and easy :)

As a mother, it's so easy to to neglect YOU. After all, there are kids to take care of, a house to clean, laundry to wash, a husband to enjoy, dinner to make, errands to run...the list is endless! I know I'm often guilty of taking care of my needs last.

However, as I recently turned 30, I realized that I should probably start paying attention to some things - skin care being one of those. And hey - take this as a sign that I'm encouraging YOU to do some things for you - starting today!

I'm blessed with pretty great skin, but I'm also not getting any younger. So - prevention is key!

It's quick and easy, and there's no reason it shouldn't become a part of your daily skincare routine. It only takes a small amount and it is easily and neatly dispensed from a small dropped in the bottle. It absorbs quickly and works its magic on your skin!

New Radiance Naturals - a must have!

<a href="" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="" /></a>

I was recently given the opportunity to review New Radiance Naturals Vitamin C Serum. I had never used a Vitamin C serum before, but had read a lot about the benefits and was very interested in adding it to my skin care routine.
I'm always very careful to fully research any products before I opt to use them myself. Here is some of the information I was able to find about New Radiance Naturals Vitamin C Serum.

  • LOOK TEN YEARS YOUNGER! Dr. Oz consulted with the nation's top plastic surgeons to find alternatives to popular cosmetic surgical procedures. The #1 Secret To Drop A Decade From Your Face was topical Vitamin C. And combining Vitamin C and E together gives a "super powerful anti-aging punch!"
  • OUR SERUM WORKS! New Radiance Naturals Professional Vitamin C Serum can actually bring back radiance and firmness to your face, and fade wrinkles, lines, freckles, acne scars, discoloration and age spots just by applying it topically.
  • SUPERIOR FORMULATION! We use a uniquely stabilized Vitamin C, which is the most bio-available, so it is absorbed by the skin almost immediately yielding the most dramatic and rapid results. Compare our ingredients to similar Vitamin C serums sold at much higher prices and you will find ours to be superior. Save your money and buy the best.
  • BEST NATURAL AND ORGANIC INGREDIENTS - 100% CRUELTY FREE! We use only vegan, cruelty-free formulations containing natural/organic active ingredients. No parabens, no sulfates, no gluten, no alcohol, no phthalates, no animal testing. Our serum is 98% natural and 72% organic and 100% plant based, and is made in the USA in our advanced FDA registered facility.
  • GUARANTEED BEST RESULTS OR YOUR MONEY BACK! Manufacturers Guarantee: We back our products up with a 365 Day, No Questions Asked, Money-Back Guarantee because we want you to experience our products, and enjoy lasting beauty and new radiance. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, simply contact us and we will give you a full refund. No questions asked.
The organic ingredients, effects and guarantee were enough to convince me that I needed this serum in my life. 
Ordering from Amazon was simple, and shipping was extremely fast. I even received an email from the company with information about the product and directions for usage. I truly felt that the company considered me to be a valuable customer and I really appreciated their fabulous customer service. 
The serum is great. It's not a all greasy and it absorbs immediately. My skin feels softer, and I definitely think it helps reverse signs of aging. I use it everyday! 
I totally understand being skeptical at first, but it's a great product and a must have for every woman's skin care routine.

Jim Brickman Pure Worship review

I find praise and worship music to be a wonderful soundtrack for my day-to-day life. It's uplifting, and keeps my mind focused on what's important. 

Additionally, as a fan of instrumental piano music, I have loved Jim Brickman's work for many years now. Jim Brickman is a well-known and highly respected pianist and songwriter in today's contemporary music world. He is truly a very gifted musician.

To find a collaboration of both of these factors was fantastic! Courtesy of Family Christian Stores, I recently had the opportunity to review his album Pure Worship. As usual, Mr. Brickman's instrumental piano music was flawless, and the song selection was great.

From the Family Christian Store's listing: Pure Worship is Jim Brickman's fourth album, featuring pop-style instrumentals, star studded vocal collaborations, and beautiful compositions. Jim Brickman has four certified gold albums and amassed 27 Top 40 singles on the adult contemporary charts, including 14 Top 10s. Brickman received top honors with two GRAMMY Award nominations, two SESAC Songwriter of the Year awards, the Canadian Country Music Award and the Dove Award presented by the Gospel Music Association.

Track List
From The Inside Out
Forever Reign
Here I Am To Worship
The Wonderful Cross
How Great Is Our God
Mighty To Save
Shout To The Lord
10,000 Reasons
Holy Is The Lord
In Christ Alone
Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

My four year old fondly refers to this CD as "her most favorite lullaby music" which I think means she finds it to be quite soothing.  I've really enjoyed listening to this CD, both at home and in the car. Some of my all time favorite worship songs, such as Mighty to Save, Cornerstone and In Christ Alone are included on this disc and I couldn't be more pleased with the variety of songs. It's a great mix of traditional and contemporary music, and would be appealing to listeners of all ages.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary product and Appreciation Certificate to facilitate my review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.

What's In the Bible {Coloring Book}

I'm sure many of us are familiar with the Buck Denver Asks What’s in the Bible series. It was created by Phil Vischer, who was first known for the wonderful Veggie Tales series. What's in the Bible is a set of videos that separates the bible into sections. Kids learn about the important messages and stories, some vocabulary and many more things. Each video also includes catchy songs to help keep the kids engaged. I’m always so pleased by what my kids learn by watching What’s in the Bible? videos.

From the What's In the Bible coloring book description:
In Buck Denver Asks What's in the Bible?!, young ones will find 200 reproducible coloring pages, featuring favorite scenes, stories, and characters from the Bible. They will color their way through the Bible, all the way from Genesis to Revelation.

I think this coloring book would be a great resource for every parent, Sunday School teacher and Children's Ministry group. The book is great quality - it's nice paper, not at all thin or transparent. And the pages are reproducible, so you could use them with multiple kiddos or even a whole class. These coloring pages really tie in perfectly with the other What's in the Bible products!

Some of my favorite pages were the scripture verses - I think these would be great for coloring and displaying around your house!

My only caution regarding this book is the intricate detailed nature of the coloring sheets. Obviously, any little kid is capable of scribbling, but I think this book is ideally suited to more skilled color-ers, probably ages 5 and up. The pictures really are quite complex, and a lot of the coloring areas are small. This isn't a complaint, just a factor to consider.

My 11 yr old daughter, who is quite serious about her art, enjoyed the detailed pages.

(As you can see, my youngest opted to use the blank back side of the page instead)

As kids of all ages enjoy being creative and coloring, I highly encourage you to use something as simple as these coloring pages as a learning tool and a great conversation starter about our faith. Talk about the characters! Tell your kids about the stories, or ask them to tell you! Don't be afraid to delve into the details, the whys, and God's redemptive plan for His creations!

Be sure to check out the pages for yourself! You can download free What's in the Bible coloring pages!
Of course, all the What's in the Bible products can be found at your local Family Christian Store or at
