HE IS: Advent From Sacred Holidays

I had the blessing to receive Sacred Holidays He Is: The Attributes of God study Advent. I am so excited I believe it starts on the 28th of November, but it is okay if you start a little late. They have an advent study for women, girls, men, families, etc, and the bundles are 10% off at the moment! What is wonderful about his study is that whenever you purchase one, 10% of the profits go to provide studies to women in Prisons. Which it is amazing just to get the word out to people who need to hear and study the gospel.

I will try my best to post throughout the advent my experience as I go through the study myself. If y'all have been paying attention to my Instagram/Facebook/Twitter,  I have been posting where you can get a peek at what the study will look like on the inside. I am ready to dig into this study so I can get myself back into the Bible better than I have ever been. It is really hard for me to stick to certain things, for certain reasons. Here is a LINK so you can too go look and purchase which study you want to grab. It's never too late to purchase one, even if you start a little late in the study. Have a Blessed Day!

She Reads Truth = The Bible

Disclosure: I received She Reads Truth: Holding Tight To A Permanent In A World That's Passing Away by Raechel Meyers and Amanda Bible Williams, complimentary from B&H Publishing. Provided I give an honest response. 



www.enchantedexcurse.com Book Review for She Reads Truth: Holding Tight To A Permanent In A World That's Passing Away by Raechel Meyers and Amanda Bible Williams, complimentary from B&H Publishing. Provided I give an Honest Response.



 I wanted to share the video that is shown on B&H Publishing for this book. It gives a good look at what you are going to be getting out of this book. It also introduces the authors of the book.

     



My Review: I always enjoy getting to read new books or Bible studies from She Reads Truth. I am also excited to see whatever new happens with this ministry. This book basically is Meyers and Williams telling about some of the rough times of their lives growing up and what they still go through now. Even though they share these parts of their lives with us, they also point out how through it all God is always the same. Even though we have the ups and the downs, we have our Bible and Prayer to show us that God is Truth. He is always there with/for us, and he will always be. One thing I like is that they share scripture they have read over and over to help them get through these struggles. Scripture that proves he is Truth. I do recommend this book if you are all about the Bible and the Truth of God. Also if you have/had struggles in your life, it is always interesting to read about other's stories and how they got through it. It shows no one is perfect and we all have downfalls etc. But the one thing that will help us get through it is our faith in God. Here is a LINK to purchase your own copy! Have a blessed Day!

I apologize but I did not try the Iron-Tek essential protein because I was concerned about using it with some of my medicines I take at the moment. I also feel in order to get a full true review you would need to have the product for at least a month to use. You normally will not see a difference in just one try of something. I don't know how much other protein powder usually costs. But I believe this is close in range of the other products. It says for 30 servings you pay $44.99. I believe that is before tax.

Max Factor - Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner and Masterpiece Max Mascara

When I tried on the eyeliner I found it went on a little bit easier than some eyeliners I have tried in this style. I did find sadly this eyeliner was hard to stay on even just doing my makeup. I have allergy issues some some products that do not work well for sensitive skin and allergies make my eyes water. This is the reason why it was already coming off and I had to go over it with my other eyeliner I use. 

The Mascara again I had the tearing up eyes because of allergies. I could not tell any difference in using this mascara to the Cover Girl mascara I use. I just found it to be similar to a lot of your other mascaras sadly. I was hoping for a difference with these products compared to what I normally get. At least the prices for these products are not extremely high. That is one plus to these products they are around the same price as the drug store mascara and eyeliners.

Seche Vite Mini (top coat) and Seche Premier Colour (color name - Cunning)

I found I had to put three coats of this nail polish on my nails to fully coat them. Otherwise they would have had streaks and not have been evenly coated.  I did not notice a difference in chipping with the top coat on, compared to if I didn't have one on. I will say I love the color though! It is perfect for year round, but I am not sure if I would ever purchase this brand.

Numi Organic Tumeric Jasmine Greeen, & Pu-erh Teas

Numi claims to be 100% Organic tea. I love trying new teas, but of course that doesn't mean I am going to love the taste of them. I have issues with tea with caffeine a lot of times because of how strong they can come off. The only tea I feel I can handle with the caffeine is the Green teas. I will say that is the only tea I enjoyed out of the choices they gave me. I always love to add raw pure honey to my teas for my natural sugar. It is much healthier than sugar or artificial sweetener. I will have to try the other types they offer though, because I have always found their brand good and affordable.

Not Your Mothers Way to Grow Leave-in Conditioner

I found the smell of this conditioner a bit to strong and like perfume. I will say it did it's job as a conditioner, but it was the same result with my hair compared to the conditioner I already use. I would spray it on my still wet/damp hair after my shower. One plus I did find interesting is that it didn't leave my hair greasy, as I would assume any leave-in Conditioner would do to my hair. I normally would have issues with this because I just have naturally oily skin and hair. So normally leave-in conditioner is usually a no go for me. Other than that if they had a different smell to try I might try this brand again. Because sometimes it just seems easier to spray in a conditioner than put actual conditioner in my hair and then have to rinse it out.

Blog Tour - Book Review for The Telling by Alexandra Sirowy

Disclosure: I received The Telling by Alexandra Sirowy complimentary from The Fantastic Flying Book Club and Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers. Provided I give my honest opinion.

Release Date: August 2nd 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, Contemporary, Thriller

 photo addtogoodreadssmall_zpsa2a6cf28.png photo B6096376-6C81-4465-8935-CE890C777EB9-1855-000001A1E900B890_zps5affbed6.jpg


Synopsis:

Lana used to know what was real.

That was before when her life was small and quiet.
Her golden step-brother, Ben, was alive, she could only dream about bonfiring with the populars, their wooded island home was idyllic, she could tell the truth from lies, and Ben’s childhood stories were firmly in her imagination.

Then came after.

After has Lana boldly kissing her crush, jumping into the water from too high up, and living with nerve and mischief. But after also has horrors, deaths that only make sense in fairy tales, and terrors from a past Lana thought long forgotten: Love, blood, and murder.





My Review: When I first started reading The Telling it was a little bit slow in the beginning. I say that because I feel the author does include a lot of details in the story so you understand what the main character is going through. I don't find it annoying that she wrote a lot of details, I love details plus it does help explain a lot of things. A lot of times I find you need those details. I found this to be a great suspenseful murder mystery book. Sirowy will have you guessing and guessing, thinking its this person or no it has to be this person. It is a book that will be hard to put down, because you just have to keep reading to know how it ends! If you are into the books have immense mystery and suspense I feel this book will be perfect for you. I do need to share that there are some cuss words in this book and some talk that suggest about sex. Luckily it wasn't too much about it, because I myself am not into the cuss words in books. A lot of times you just cannot get away from it though, that is how some of the children talk nowadays and a lot of adults. Anyways, enough of that talk, other than that again I say this was an intriguing book. I am going to have to grab the other book of the authors and read it.
