An Easter Prayer Touch and Feel {By Amy Parker} Children’s Book Review

As a member of BookLookBloggers I received this item free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are always my own.

Spring is here and Easter is just a few short weeks away. If you’re looking for a basket gift for the littles that isn’t candy I have got a great little book.

An Easter Prayer Touch-and-Feel book is written by Amy Parker and illustrated by Alison Edgson. Starting from the front cover there are 7 different textured pictures you can feel throughout the book including a bunny’s furry belly, a rain puddle or even the petal of a beautiful flower. It follows a cute little bunny and chick around as they give special thanks to God for all the wonderful things He has given us; like the rain for puddles, new life for family and friends and ending with being thankful that God sent  His son Jesus who lives again.The book is so wonderfully illustrated with bright, colorful, spring pictures of fun little animals. The sentences are short and sweet and perfect for early readers and younger.

 

Touch and feel books were some of my absolute favorite books to read when I was a wee little one, and my kids loved them too!

You can purchase this on Amazon just in time to fill those baskets.

Buck Denver’s Giant Robot Suit & Buck Denver’s Bad, Bad Day {Children’s Book Reviews}

I received free copies of the books below in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are always my own.

 

If any of you have kids who love Veggie Tales you will be excited about these next 2 books I am going to share with you. Buck Denver’s Giant Robot Suit and Buck Denver’s Bad, Bad Day are written by Veggie Tales creator Phil Vischer and are based on the video series Buck Denver Asks… What’s in the Bible? .

My daughter loves reading and I love books that I know have value, show character but are also fun to read and engaging. These books are books that I don’t have to worry what they are reading. You can never read enough about God or the Bible and these books are great and sharing our love of both.

 

Buck Denver’s Giant Robot Suit

What does it mean to be a good friend?

Buck Denver wants to be friends with God, so he makes a giant robot suit to be closer to Him. To help Buck understand the true meaning of friendship, his friends share their favorite Bible stories. First, Sunday School Lady tells him all about David and Jonathan and their loyalty to one another in tough times. Then Pastor Paul talks about how Jesus offers friendship to each of us. In the end, Buck learns that God uses friends to help us grow stronger and our friendship with Jesus helps us grow closer to God!

My Review

I love how this how this book focused on friendship. My daughter is 8 and very friendly. This book showed her how to be a great friend and how God uses friends to help us through life. Friends are an important part of our life and helps us be stronger.

In the back of the book is a section called “Family Connection”. It lists questions for you to ask your child and really get them thinking about the lessons in the book and  Bible verses to read. This is such an awesome thing to include in the book.

 

Buck Denver’s Bad, Bad Day

What does it mean to be thankful?

Buck Denver has had a bad, bad day, so his friends take him on a quest to learn about thankfulness. Soon, he’s on a ride with Sunday School Lady, Marcy, and Brother Louie to learn about Jehoshaphat and Lazarus. In the end, Buck learns that on good days AND bad days, God is good and worthy of our thanks-every day, no matter what!

My Review

Thankful…that is a word that I actively try to teach my children all the time. Be thankful for the big, the small, the things you see and even the things you don’t see. This book is a fun, gentle approach that helps children remember just how great God is and to thankful all the time. This book to has the “Family Connection” section in the back.

Easter is coming up these would make perfect basket stuffers. They are fun to read but also remind the children of some important life lessons. Friendship and thankfulness are 2 very important life lessons that many people lack today in this sometimes harsh world. Let’s remind our littles how great God is and how he provides for us every…single…day!

Out With the Old In With the New {Living Room Decor Tips}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of www.csiwallpanels.com. All opinions are always my own.

Is it time for a change? With the new year I always feel it’s time to get rid of the old and in with the new. Whether it’s a new year or you just need a change of scenery in your home, I have some great tips to change up your living room decor.

A New Year A New Living Room Décor

An enthralling New Year has just blossomed with petals of new dreams and aspirations! Having a comfortable home is one’s most beautiful dream. Whether it is a small cottage or a big mansion, home is a person’s most prized possession.  It is the reflection of one’s personality. Reflect your vibrant soul with decorative wall panels and exuberant marble floors. Make your living room an epitome of comfort, peace, and satisfaction where families bond, children nurture and elders feel loved. Let your walls speak the language of your heart with lively 3D wall panels that broadcast your class. Whether you are a minimalist or a maximalist, you can customize your theme selection accordingly to pave way for a fresh new start.

 

The bamboo effect

Light yet sturdy, minimal and also cheap, yes it’s the bamboo that makes any decoration unique! Try using bamboo to give an ecstatic vision of simplicity and grace. Using bamboo wall panels for your living rooms could be an excellent option for bringing life to any size of the room. With minimal maintenance, bamboo can make any place look stylish. It can be used as a screen or as a natural curtain or it can be used as a dividing wall for different zones in a huge room. Oversized hanging bamboo lampshades make a bold impact in a room or balcony. Bamboo blinds and decorative baskets give a rustic and relaxed effect to any area in the living room. Pairing up with wood or stone, bamboo can add a soothing echo to any room.

 

 

Adding Life to walls

Walls could be of bricks or of stones, it’s is their color and texture that makes the house a home. Experimenting with paints on different sized walls could be an easy option, but this is not all. Life is 3 dimensional so why not our walls? Here comes the 3D wall panel to the rescue. If it sounds difficult, there are certain other easy options for quick modifications. Adding a simple green tall plant to a corner of a wall or next to a piece of furniture makes a serene and lasting impact. Changing the texture by using thematic textured wall panels can help to personalize your walls. If you want to make a signature effect, a single large antique mirror can be hanged over a fireplace. Mirrors open up spaces to provide a relaxing effect.  Make way for some textile wall art, which can beautifully cover a large wall. If you have geeky genes then you may make way for optical illusion using funkily patterned wall tiles which make smaller rooms look big.  You may also go for some artsy bookshelves to make a mini library.

 

Floor décor

Highlight your space by decorating the most important aspect which occupies the largest space in your house. Yes, it is the floor.  The color, the texture, the type of material used, all decide the tempo of the room. The color and the material used speak for itself but the other decorative items can spice things up. The use of light colored flooring can create a cooling effect and also make smaller rooms look large. Decorative area rugs of contrasting colors from the floor can be treated like a piece of art to decorate the large frame of your floors. Adding to that, illuminating floor lamps at the corners of the wall adds reflective light from walls to creating a magical lasting impact. Add some floral plants to the corners of the rooms. They not only decorate the floor space but also clean the air. Floor poufs and other decorative seating items can add coziness to the home. Using large pillows around small tables are a good option for small gatherings in the room. Wooden flooring can also be a great option to bring warmth and coziness in the room.

Creative lightening

Good lightening is the key to promised beautiful architecture. It needs to be creatively focused over the items one needs to highlight. Chandeliers provide elegant vintage lights. They can either be hanged alone or in pairs. Dramatic effects can be added by repeating ceiling fixtures in long hallways every few feet. Eco-friendly LED Lights can be used to illuminate architectural details with different colors. Pendant lights can be hanged over center tables to make a great statement. Floor lamps have the power to enlighten dark rooms. Small disk lights can also be used in cabinets to create a dazzling showroom effect. The right amount of lightning at the right place can leave an extremely great effect on the architecture. 

Accessories

Beautiful rooms are created not just by making big changes, but also by adding small details. Accessorize your home with decorative storage items, hanging pieces of artwork, pictures, floating shelves, artistic curtains, and bookshelves. Replacing old furniture with a new one that matches your style is of utmost importance. Spray paint can be used to renew old storage boxes. Hanging artwork, pictures and posters personalize your space. Floating shelves can also be used to create some extra space. Curtains, on the other hand, are the most underused decorating tools. Different colored curtains can be combined with contrasting walls to create a textured look. Layering with different patterns can also be done to increase visual interests in a room. Another way could be the display of highly curated collectibles on a small table or shelf. Antiques can also be grouped by different colors.

This New Year, renew your living room beautifully to instill positive vibes that soothe your soul the whole year round. Paying attention to the little details can help in providing good design to your living room. Choose from a variety of designs depending on your budget. Something low in cost can also be made splendid if used in an unusual way. Adopting strategies that best suit your space and using appropriate colors can magically transform any simple looking house into a cozy home. Make an innovative start but beware, the comfort you receive might make you homesick!

Take Your Office From Drab to Fab With These Helpful Tips

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Plantscapeinc.com. All opinions are my own.

Some people dread going to the office, the same boring office space day after day. What if you could turn that drab office into a fab office?! Below you will find some affordable and helpful tips to make going into the office more enjoyable.

 

Decorating your Office with Modern Décor Ideas

The fact that you have to spend a time of 8-10 hours daily in your office makes it worthy of a proper décor. If your office décor does not suit you, it is very likely that you will not be able to give your best in the office. Decorating an office space can prove to be a challenging task as while decorating the office you have to keep in mind about the preference of two sides of parties. You will have to consider your own choice along with the choices of your higher authorities. Moreover, your office should have a good impression on your visitors as well and thus you have to keep that point in mind also.

Keeping all these points in mind, you must follow a plan to decorate your office in the best possible way. Below are discussed some tips, following which will help you to deck up your office in a way that will not only lift up your mood but also bring a smile on others’ face.

Choosing a Theme:

The first step of decorating your office is picking up the proper theme. Once you select a theme you will be able to buy decorating goodies that will go with the theme and decorate your office. While selecting the theme, you can consider giving your office a touch of greenery. You can consider setting up artificial palm leaves in your office to give it a natural look. The leaves will not only enhance the color of the room but will also bring in an effect of sooth that will help you to concentrate on your work.

You can also put up artificial plants outdoor in your office. In this way, people who will come visiting your office will have an idea from outside about what your office is likely to be. While decorating your office you can also use outdoor artificial hanging ferns. These will give your office a greener look and also enhance its beauty.

Scheme the use of Colours:

Before you start decorating your office scheme the number of colors you will use in the space. Also, you must keep in mind that your selected colors should go with the theme that you have selected for your office. Having a scheme of colors will not only simplify your process of decorating your office but will also add a great look to your office.

The most preferred trend in scheming colours is to select one minor colour and two colours that will be dominant. You can select the dominant and the minor shade in accordance to the selected theme and the colour of office accessories that you will be using.

 

Selecting the Wall Colours:

While painting the walls of your office try to use colors that reflect your business’ spirit. You can choose to be bold with the wall colors if you want to be and if it matches your business spirit. You can choose high-quality wall colors that will last long and give your office an enhanced look. If your business deals in the creative domain you can choose quirky colors. However, if your business is traditional in nature then you might stick to the traditional colors.

Decorating the Walls:

Once you have colored your walls you might consider not leaving them bare. Bare walls bring forth a feeling of dullness that might affect the working energy and mood of you and your employees. You can consider decking up your walls with pieces of art and wall hangings. You might contact local artists who want the exposure of their work and hang their paintings on your wall. You can also hand framed photographs to decorate your wall.

Getting Rid of the Clutter:

You must keep in mind that a clear desk gives you a clear and fresh mind to work with. Thus you must remember to clear your desk at least once a week and get rid of all the unnecessary items put on your desk. You can consider buying a pencil desk drawer that would give you a quick access to your most needed accessories. You can also put framed photographs of your family and friends on your desk to enlighten your mood and help you work better.

Adding a Chair Mat:

You might consider using a chair-mat in your office. These mats not only save the floor from the rough rolling off your desk or feet but also add a sense of beauty to the overall look of the office. You should buy a mat that goes with the theme of your office and the color on your walls. Bamboo mats look unique and last longer than the traditional rubber mats. You can consider using them for long-term purpose and deck up your office beautifully.

Adding a Stylish Chair:

At last you have to select a proper chair for your office. A number of points have to be kept in mind while buying the chair. You must buy a chair that would be comfortable for you to sit as you will be spending long hours sitting on it. Thereafter, you have to be careful while choosing the proper material for the chair so that it goes with the office décor and lasts long. The color of your chair should also match the colors of your wall ad your selected theme for the office.

 

Following the above-mentioned points will make sure that you are able to deck up your office in a seamless way. Given the fact that you need to be productive and positive at your office, it is necessary that the office décor is suitable and not dull or boring. Having an office that has a lot of greenery will not only invite positive energy but will also help you to concentrate better. People who will come to visit your office from outside will also be soothed by the greenery of your office and that will give you a better opportunity to do business with them.

 

Dry Scalp? Save It With Maple Holistics Silk18 Shampoo

I was provided free samples in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are always my own.

Winters are usually bad for my skin and scalp but this year it has been extra brutal on my scalp. There was absolutely nothing I tried that would even remotely get rid of the dry scalp. It would make just make it worse. I needed something that not only worked but something that was affordable too (I am not down for spending an atrocious amount of money on salon shampoos). I also get keratin treatments about every 5 months so I need something that isn’t full of harsh ingredients and as recommended by my stylist is sulfate and paraben free (apparently this helps the treatment last longer).

 

Then it happened! I was asked to try out the new Silk18 Shampoo from Maple Holistics. Little did I know that this would be a serious game changer and my hair and scalp were going to thank me for that. So I might sound a little over dramatic but you should have seen how dry my scalp was before, so embarrassing! But before I tell you how using Silk18 saved my dry scalp I will share some of the benefits with you.

 

Benefits of using Silk18

Achieve stronger, smoother, more luscious hair with silk18 shampoo. Infused with a rejuvenating blend of 18 silk amino acids which help fortify hair follicles and strengthen strands to protect hair from dryness, breakage, damage, split ends, and hair fall. The nourishing formula gently cleanses dandruff, excess sebum, and impurities to leave your hair and scalp feeling fresh but not stripped. Enriched with argan and jojoba oil to add supreme softness and a luminous shine. Our shampoo is sulfate and paraben-free making it great for all hair types, color treated hair, and sensitive skin.
Key Ingredients
Silk Amino Acids, Botanical Keratin, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Natural Vanilla Fragrance, Aqua.
So from reading the beginning of this review I am sure you can tell that I LOVE Silk18 Shampoo! I have been using this shampoo for a little over a month and my hair doesn’t just look and feel clean but it is smoother, tangle free and dandruff free. I am too embarrassed to show a before picture so you will just have to trust me on how bad it was, but I don’t feel embarrassed to show and after. And it smells AMAZING!
Silk18 Shampoo does what it says! It has no harsh chemicals, is affordable and easy to use. I wash my hair every other day. I use about a quarter sized amount and starting at the roots I lather my hair and scalp up. I like to massage it in and let it sit about 2 minutes before rinsing it out. I follow it up with a nice moisturizing conditioner I already have on hand that works well but you can also purchased Silk18 Conditioner.
Seriously this is good stuff y’all! If you have hair that needs some TLC get a bottle of Silk18 Shampoo. It’s a scalp saver. It’s available on Amazon in 3 different sizes: 8oz, 10oz and 16oz. And has free Prime shipping too. (As of the time of this post there is a 10% off coupon so be sure to clip it before checking out) Grab a bottle of Silk18 Conditioner too.
