Faith Based Journals by JoAnne Fink

What a blessing it is to serve a God who stepped in and saved us when we deserved the punishment that he bore for our sins. Today, and always, I’m grateful for my faith and the love I have for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Many of you may not know this, but I’m a writer. I spend a lot of time writing and when I’m not writing, I’m working on speeches. Today, I’m teaming with Fox Chapel Publishing to bring you reviews for four amazing faith filled journals-My Prayer Journal, Bless this Nest, God All Around, and The Beloved Word. Each journal is beautifully illustrated. The scripture devotions are relevant and encouraging. Most of all, Author JoAnne Fink, didn’t forget to add beautiful details in each of her journals. The covers are glossy and eye catching, the art work is stunning and each devotional is personable. If you are someone who enjoys writing, head on over to Amazon to check out Joanne’s journals. You will not be disappointed! Happy Friday, loves!

Spring Weather is Here!

3D4D5680-400F-42AC-BF44-ECC49EF04033

Spring weather is here and that means that Easter is coming up soon! To me, Easter means a chance to invite family over and welcome them into my home. This means that creating a cozy, warm, and inviting home is essential so that everyone feels comfortable during the time they stay with you. Easter, and spring in general is a time to make your home feel fresh and new, so grab your gloves and soap, and get ready to do your spring cleaning! I love this list of things to spring clean because it includes spots that you do not normally think about, like your dishwasher, inside your cabinets, and even your windows.

In addition to cleaning out your home, there are many other ways to make your home feel cozy and inviting for your guests with the addition of just a few things. Here are a few of my favorite ways to make your home feel inviting for all of your guests during this time of celebration!

Fresh Blooms
There are so many gorgeous fresh blooms that you can fill your home with! Some of my favorite spring flowers to include are Pansies, Yellow Trillium, Redbuds, Lilacs, Iris’, Daffodils, and Peonies. To save money, you could grow your own fresh spring blooms to include in your home. If you want to save even more money when you grow your own blooms, make sure you grow perennial flowers over annual flowers because then they will grow back every year without a lot of maintenance and work. Annuals, on the other hand are cheaper options to purchase, but you have to purchase them over and over again, each year.

Spring Scents
Mrs. Meyers has a great peony scented cleaner and hand soap that is perfect for spring! You could also find lavender scented laundry soap, and body soap. The Mrs. Meyers cleaner smells up your entire home and the scent last for a good while, making your home smell clean and just like spring flowers! If you are against heavily scented sprays, you could try organic candles, or essential oils. Some of my favorite spring scents when it comes to candles are ocean breeze, bahama mama, and flower scents like lilac and rose.

Fresh Food
To me, this is the highlight of family get togethers. It is so fun to plan a Spring, Easter meal because there are so many fresh ingredients during the springtime. Plan your meal based on the people that are coming over, and also the time of day it is. Make sure that everyone’s needs are taken care of, so add a few non-dairy options, vegetarian, or vegan options, if necessary. Some of my favorite spring ingredients to include in dishes are peas, strawberries, ham, asparagus, and green beans.

Inviting Lighting
If you are having an Easter dinner, make sure to add enough lighting so guests can see what they are doing, especially if you are having an outdoor Easter egg hunt, which can be so much fun! A few unique ways to add more lighting to your exterior is upgrading you sconces, adding tiki torches (it’s a bonus if it’s filled with mosquito repelling oil), and maybe even start a fire pit if it’s chilly out. This is a great way to warm up, cook up some fun smores, and add lighting to the outside of your home.

Easter Festivities
This is the best part of any family gathering, especially Easter! For kids, you can do an Easter egg hunt, like I mentioned above, and fill up Easter egg baskets. One of my favorite fancy additions to an Easter gathering is hiring an Easter bunny, or having someone dress up as the Easter bunny. Kids love this and it can be a great way to get some pictures.

Temperature Regulation
Usually in the south, the temperature is relatively cold during Easter, but occasionally it is pretty warm outside, which is so nice when it happens. Either way, make sure your home has a regulated temperature so that your guests are comfortable the entire time. One way to easily control the temperature of your home (without having excessive energy costs) is buy investing in window tinting. For cold weather, window films adds a layer of insulation, which helps prevent cold temperatures from penetrating through the window. Window films reflects and disperses heat back into the room, they reduce cold spots inside your home, it improves comfort during the cold winter months, and it does this while saving on heating and cooling costs year round. If you are located in Georgia, UHS Window Tinting and Blinds  can definitely help you out with not only your window tinting needs, but also with window treatments, like blinds. UHS Window Tinting and Blinds has been open and running since 2003, so they have an extensive history with window films and treatments. They carry a full line of 3M window film products that include sun control, safety and security features, and decorative films, so they can help you out, no matter what your wants and needs are when it comes to window films and treatments.

Saranghea Skincare-5 Step System Collaboration

Saranghea Skincare-5 Step System Collaboration

Let’s talk skincare, loves! So, over the years, I’ve noticed that my skin has become more sensitive to different skincare lines. I often find myself sticking to skincare that is gentle, but it doesn’t necessarily address all of my skincare needs. As someone who has bouts of eczema, I always want to be careful when applying new products to my skin. I have combination skin with oily t-zone areas. I haven’t experienced a lot of fine lines or wrinkles on my skin, but I certainly want to continue taking preventative measures to combat significant aging. I drink plenty of water, eat fresh fruit and veggies, I change my pillowcases and wash my sheets every few days to prevent breakouts, but I do have some superficial scarring on my cheeks. In the past, I left the major skin care to my dermatologist. I do get hydrating facials and chemical peels every few months to keep my skin healthy, but I have always wanted a daily routine that my skin benefits from.

A couple of weeks ago, I began partnering with SarangheaSkincare. Saranghae
is an award-winning Korean 5 Step Anti-Aging skin care routine that heals, regenerates and protects your skin. Saranghae’s focus on natural ingredients, highly effective products, and excellence in customer service has helped them become the fastest growing Korean skin care brand in the United States. Another fun fact about this amazing brand is the word Saranghea in Korean means, I love you. Saranghea sent me their 5 Step Anti-Aging system. First of all, their packaging is beautiful! Second, their products are generous in size. Third, the skincare routine is easy to follow. And, fourth, the system truly works!

After my first application, I noticed my skin was dewy and glowing. I also noticed my skin wasn’t showing any signs of irritation. I have since continued using Saranghea products and my skin is loving it! I have no problems with breakouts. My skin is hydrated. And, I have even gone without makeup and my skin still looks good.

How does Saranghea change your skin? Saranghea products heal, regenerate and protect the skin. Who doesn’t want to erase past damage and protect their skin from future damage? I know I sure do!

Is the 5 Step System difficult to use? No, I was able to incorporate everything into my nightly routine effortlessly.

Which steps do I use?

Step 1-Saranghae Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil + Foam Cleanser with Truffle Extract & Gold

Step 2-Saranghae Deep Radiance Essence + Serum

Step 3-Saranghae Firm and Lift Cellular Regeneration Cream

Step 4-Saranghae Focus Renewal Eye Cream

Step 5- Saranghae Elemental Essence Mask

So, who would I recommend these products to? Anyone who is willing to make an investment on their skin. We spend money on makeup, but often times we skimp on facial products. If you’re willing to make an investment on your skin and take the time to care for your skin, I guarantee the results will be worthwhile. I encourage you to embark on a journey that includes loving yourself from the inside out and loving the beautiful skin you’re in. There’s only one you. So, you might as well take care of yourself. You won’t regret purchasing their products! If you do purchase their products and you aren’t satisfied, they offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. Saranghea heals, regenerates and protects the skin.

Avistarcare Teeth Whitening Powder

F65E7A98-E93E-454B-8A57-D29E57CB1F03.jpeg

Hey Loves!

I am collaborating with @avistarcare to bring you my review of their charcoal tooth powder. Having a healthy smile is important, so I am always searching for products to maintain my teeth. There are so many products that incorporate charcoal in their ingredients because it’s natural and the benefits are seen fairly quickly. Now, I know charcoal toothpaste may scare some people off because they might think the product tastes bad. But, I’ve been using this product a few weeks and there isn’t a distinct taste. Unlike other whitening toothpastes, my teeth aren’t left sensitive to hot or cold. And, I have been noticing a difference in the color of my teeth. Overall, I would say @avistarcare tooth powder is definitely a product to try if you’re someone who experiences sensitivity when whitening your teeth. They have several products available, but I only tested the tooth powder. Be sure to head on over to Amazon to purchase your own. You won’t regret it!

Biblical Crossword Puzzles

Happy Wednesday, loves! Today I’m teaming up with Skyhorse Publishing to bring you my reviews of the Peace of Mind Crossword Puzzle books. Linda Peters, a teacher, mother and word lover designed the perfect book for those who enjoy word searches. Who doesn’t love brain building fun and books that enrich your faith? I received 2 books-Hymns and Old and New Testament Puzzles, but there are several other crosswords. Other topics of interest include: Proverbs, Women in the Bible and the Ten Commandments.Each book includes 150 large print puzzles. Large print puzzles are great because they reduce eye strain. How many times have you worked on a puzzle for hours only to have a headache afterwards because of the small print? I recommend these books to anyone who loves faith filled puzzles. Each puzzle is unique and filled with words that relate to the specific topic in the Bible. Keep your mind sharp and your faith energized every day! This is the perfect gift for that word lover in your life! —————————
