Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit Giveaway 7/16 Daily

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to review the SodaStream Genesis kit and I can say that my family likes it. I was surprised at how fast the shipping was and how everything was packed. The SodaStream was very easy to put together and use. I liked the Cola flavor and my son likes the orange & root beer flavors while hubby likes the tea and water flavors. This really does have something for everyone. I like how you can carbonate the beverage to your liking. Plus the best part is you can add as much syrup you like for your tasting. My 13yr old son loves making his own pop.
 This is before I took the SodaStream Genesis out of the box.
This after we made our first bottle of Root Beer. Very easy to do.

Rendezvous Rock by Rickey Bray book Review & Giveaway ends 7/14 daily

 About the Book:
While vacationing in the mountains, Eric meets an unusual girl, Susan, who has sparkling, emerald eyes that are unusually captivating. They are a unique, singular shade of green and seem to be imbued with an ancient fire that even a spoiled, youthfully unperceptive Eric could easily feel. He senses a strange maturity about this mysterious girl and is drawn to her like a magnet."When I said we would never be married, I meant in your way," Susan said. "Will you marry me in my way? Right now?"Even though numerous questions clamored in his head, Eric easily replied, "Of course."Eric's answer was far too easy in Susan's opinion. As she mused over his quick reply, she speculated on how to best explain their strange situation in terms that he could understand, an impossibility to do beforehand. He would have to commit himself, then learn the truth. It was unfair to the extreme, yet unavoidable under these very peculiar circumstances, and thus Eric is drawn into a mysterious world.

About the Author:  
 Oklahoman Rickey Bray became a writer after a series of personal tragedies. Following a car accident involving a drunk driver and the death of his wife and two children, he turned to drugs for consolation which eventually resulted in twelve years of incarceration, a life-altering experience resulting in the start of his prolific writing career and this debut novel.


My Take on the book:
I love reading books like these because you can lose your self in the story. I know I have said it before but this would be a great Life Time movie. I liked reading the book and it flowed well. I found myself thinking about the characters in the book when I wasn't reading it. This was a great read.

"Hana Lani" by Christine Sunderland book Review & Giveaway 7/10 daily


Book Description:
Only opening their hearts will keep them from plunging into the dark abyss. Old Nani-lei lives in Hana-lani, her family home in rural Hawaii. She looks after her grandson Henry, 52, and his daughter Lucy, 6, who have returned to Maui from Berkeley after the death of Maria, Henry's wife. Henry and Maria, both professors, had been working on A History of Ethics, and now the grieving Henry struggles to finish it. City girl Meredith Campbell, 36, fast-paced, self-centered, and beautiful, believes her body will ensure her happiness. After losing her job and finding her lover unfaithful, she flies to Maui, sure he will follow...but her plane crashes near Hana-lani. As their worlds collide in a natural world both beautiful and dangerous, Henry will be forced to act on his words, and Meredith will come face-to-face with her own life choices. A poignant journey that unravels T.S. Eliot's "permanent questions"- what is goodness, truth, and love? By the author of the thought-provoking trilogy Pilgrimage, Offerings, and Inheritance.
About the Author:
 Christine Thomas Sunderland (1947-), the daughter of a Presbyterian pastor, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and came of age in the tumultuous Vietnam war years.

She is also fascinated with the interaction of matter and spirit. Her trilogy explores the legacy of Western European culture: Pilgrimage (OakTara, 2007), tells of a mother's search for healing of body and soul in Italy; Offerings (OakTara, 2009) tells of a redemptive journey through France (Bronze Medal winner in the Independent Publisher Book Awards 2010); Inheritance (OakTara 2009) tells of a life-saving trip through England. A fourth novel, Hana-lani (OakTara 2010), set in Hana, Maui, is a love story about the role of family in American culture. She is currently working on a mystery about Mary Magdalene set in Rome and Provence.

Christine is Vice-President of the American Church Union, the publishing house of the Anglican Province of Christ the King. She has written numerous publications for children, including the Jeanette Series, novellas set in France and San Francisco, 8+, and has edited the Anglican Confirmation Manual and The American Church Union Church School Series (http://www.Anglicanpck.org).

My Take on the book:
I love reading books like these because they remind me of a Life Time movie. I got into the plot of the story and kept wanting to read more so I could get to good part lol I personally could relate to the characters in the story because my husband & I are two different people and a flat tire brought us together. This will be a good read for anyone who reads it.

More Confessions shares the raw and honest feelings of emergency service professionals through true 'story behind the story' revelations. Disclosing experiences from both sides of the gurney, Sherry and other EMS, ER, paramilitary, and firefighter responders walk you along their fragile line of sanity. Using humor as a life raft during perfect storms, workers reflect upon how they endure and survive personal and professional tragedy while trying not to care too much, and what happens when they fail in that attempt.

Billy's inner journey therefore has also begun and with the help of Ms. Woods, a Play Therapist, there is hope.

    Bee All Natural Review & Giveaway ends 7/9 Daily

    About Bee All Natural:
    Bee All Natural was founded in 2009 when I couldn't find the quality skincare products I was searching for.  Tired of buying "natural" products that were petroleum based and filled with perfumes, I set-out to develop my own skincare that would be safe for every member of my family. 

    The daughter of an organic dairy farmer. I already believed in the connection between diet and health.  I wanted the products I chose for my family's skincare to reflect the same quality and goodness as those that I chose for their nutrition. 

    Working independently, I researched, tested and developed each of my products from start to completion.  The ingredients are certified organic and are all "food grade" quality.  I make each product from scratch and never use pre-made bases.  Packaging each batch myself, I even design and print my own labels and carry each order to the post office or retail location!

    I am proud of Bee All Natural and stand behind my products 100%.  I won't sell a product that I don't use and believe in myself.  If I can't make a product great, I just won't make it.

    A Michigan native, I am a regular at the Royal Oak farmer's market where I sell dairy products at my father's booth.  I live in Shelby Twp., Michigan with my husband Dave, son Trevor and step-daughter Isabel.
     The first item I tried was the Clarifying Mud Mask and I love it. The mud was very easy to put on and didn't smell at all. A little does go a long way. My husband did tease me when I had this on my face and said it looked liked the paint he puts on his face when he goes deer hunting lol My face felt so refreshed after using this.
     Don't laugh like hubby did lol This does work.
     The second item I was the Intense Hand & Foot Salve and this works. I have dry cracked heals and I have been using this for almost 2 weeks now and I can see and feel the difference in my heels. Now this doesn't smell the greatest but I love how a little goes a long way. My heels look great.
