What I’m reading | October | Uninvited

Uninvited: Living Loved When you Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely


Rarely is there a book, especially a “self-help” type book that I love from the moment I open it. Usually these kinds of books are very uncomfortable, very invasive, and VERY convicting. Don’t get me wrong Uninvited totally is all those things but the amazing author Lysa TerKeurst presents it in the most loving gentle way. I have laughed, cried and prayed throughout reading this book!

 Lysa TerKeurst is one of my authors, she has been for a while but Uninvited has spoken to me in a way that no other has. Many…ok pretty much all of the  personal struggles and experiences are exactly what I have struggled with and experienced. It almost seemed was if Lysa wrote this book for me and to help heal me from so very difficult things that honestly I had no idea how to deal with. It’s more that just struggles, Lysa shares how rejection has impacted her life, again something that I have gone through that has broken me…really. I love that Lysa invites the reader into her journey of healing, through love, friendship and funny personal anecdotes.

 Learning to Live Loved.  

I think it goes without saying…but…this book has been such a blessing for my heart and my healing. I know I am not the only one who easily feels rejected or left out in life, and often this pain can lasts for years. Uninvited helped remind me of who I am:

Fully and completely loved,


I am a daughter of the King. 

I’m not who that guy says I am.
I’m not who that girl says I am.
I’m not who social media likes and comments say I am.
I’m not who the grades, to do lists, messes, and mess ups say I am.
I’m not who the scale says I am or the sum total of what my flaws and say I am.
I’m going to stop flirting with the unstable things of this world so I can fall completely in love with You.
I am loved.
I am held.
I am Yours.
I am forever Yours.

It’s time for you to heal.  

It’s time for you to Live Loved.  

Lysa and Uninvited can help you heal from that broken, alone, and unloved life, giving you the ability to start living the life that God designed for you.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone….seriously! It’s so wonderful!
HUGE Thank you to Lysa for being so vulnerable, she blessed me more than I can ever put in to words! God has truly blessed her!❤

What I’m Loving | October| Beautiful Word Coloring Bible!


With hundreds of inspiring verses illustrated in detailed, ready-to-color line art, the NIV Beautiful Word™ Coloring Bible employs the proven stress-relieving benefits of adult coloring to help quiet your soul so you can reflect on the precious truths of Scripture. Perfect for all ages, the thick white paper with lightly ruled lines in the extra-wide margins, provides ample space for your own artistic expressions and journaling.

The NIV Beautiful Word™ Coloring Bible is a perfect gift that will become a cherished keepsake full of personalized creative expressions of faith.

Bible Journaling has become more than hobby but a way of worship for so many, it is something that I personally have loved doing since I was a child. I so vividly remember someone at church gasping  when they saw me drawing and coloring pictures in the margins of my bible, I was told that I was being disrespectful to Gods Word, I didn’t feel that I was at all and my mom ensured me I wasn’t either so continued {at home}. As I’ve gotten older I have found less and less time to draw in my margins but I still try to every once in a while. Recently I received a email from Zondervan sharing all the up coming releases… I squealed with excitement! Eek! The Beautiful Word COLORING Bible! Guys this is tailor made for me…it may as well be called “Britni’s Coloring Bible”

My heart lept out of my chest from excitement when it arrived! It is a beautiful Bible, the illustrations are great and create a wonderful time of worship as well as encouraging your God given creativity!!


 {Here is a blank margin I did}

Inside the Bible:

The pages are thicker than the average but they are still “bible” pages so still thinner than say that novel you’ve been reading. I would highly recommend colored pencils over watercolors, watercolor crayons and markers I feel like they would bleed through and possibly cause a big mess, but that is my opinion. If you are using watercolor make sure you put a blank sheet of paper under the page you are working on and allow it to fully drybible5

There are countless “coloring” pages…meaning the out line is already there you just color it the way you want, there are also TONS of blank margins giving you the opportunity to show your heart, feelings and faith! I love both aspects, where creativity is often times my middle name…the Lord has not blessed me with 5-6 more hours in the day making it very difficult to draw in the margins like I did as a child, they take time, so the pre drawn pages are perfect for times when I just want quite communion with God but maybe I only have 5-10 minutes. The blank margins are perfect for kiddo nap time, after they go to bed or that rare entire afternoon!


I would recommend this Bible to any friend or family member from pre- teen to 100 {there are other wonderful options for younger children}. In fact I already got my mom a copy, it arrived yesterday! She has been loving the adult coloring books {ooh who hasn’t!} She is a true artist and is in love with this Bible! With a price tag of $30 or less this stunning Bible will not break the bank especially if you are like my family and on a budget!

Already have it? Do you love it?

via Zondervan: Features of this treasured Bible include:

  • Hundreds of verses illustrated in ready-to-color line art
  • Thicker white paper for enduring note-taking
  • Lined, wide margins for notes, reflections and art
  • Full text of the most read, most trusted modern-English Bible – the New International Version (NIV)
  • Easy-to-read black letter text in single-column format
  • Lays flat in your hand or on your desk
  • Ribbon marker

If you are looking for another translation the Beautiful Word Bible {non coloring version} comes in other translations including KJV and Large Print which can be found at Zondervan

**Q&A: After posting I started receiving emails about where the colored pencils are from {in the top photo} They were from TJMaxx but I have seen them in Ross too.

Fall Tights! Featuring Berkshire Hosiery

Berkshire Hosiery

I hope I’m not the only one who is THRILLED about the cooler weather we are getting {at least in PNW…I know it’s still HOT in many places still}

With colder weather comes so many great things…hot tea and coffee, hoodies, boots, beanies and TIGHTS! I LOVE love tights so when the opportunity arose for me to share Berkshire tights here I thought HECK YEAH! Well wouldn’t you know the day my tights arrived it was hot…it hadn’t been above 65 in weeks then all the sudden we are up in the 90s?!? What in the world! So I waited, and waited and waited more, because I do NOT like wearing tights when its sweaty out! Finally last week the temps dropped and the weather grew very chilly {hence the first sentence above!} I was so excited to break out my new tights. We were heading out the store and it was 50 degrees and raining, perfect tights weather! I picked these super cute grayish ribbed ones to wear shopping!


They are called “Easy On” seriously they were the quickest and easiest tight I have ever put on! They fit amazing and are SO comfortable. You know how some times when you wear tights they slide down and it just doesn’t feel right? That DIDN’T happen with these!


I got two pairs  of the “Easy On” style one in gray rib and the other in black {non ribbed} I LOVE both of them. Somehow even though they are thick and cozy they are not hot.

I also received a pair of Berkshire “Firm all the way” tights. Which have all kinds of support and give you a booty lift and a tummy tuck😉 These are different from the “Easy On” they are tighter with less give, giving you a smooth and slick silhouette!

I love these tights and will probably wear them out before winter is over!


I cannot wait to get more especially the purple and red Easy On tights!

Vive Health Double Feature!

Vive HealthI am so excited to be partnering again with Vive Health! You might remember my post about their Shoulder Brace, you can read that here.
I have two awesome Vive Health products to share with you their ankle support brace and they’re back support brace!
How about a little backstory about me🙂  When I was a teenager my sister and I were in a really horrific car accident, we were parked and rear ended the drive was driving over 60mph (it was bad) Since then I have had severe low back pain. I’ve spent many hours in physical therapy for my back and my spine. I have learned a bunch tips and tricks to help temporarily elevate the pain. Now, fast forward to the spinal tap that I had during my twins C-section birth, yeah that added extra low back pain.
I anxiously awaited my new back brace it hopes that it would give me so much needed relief. When it arrived I couldn’t have been happier with the quality!
The Vive Health Back Brace has a double Velcro closure making it two times stronger than other back braces. The double closure also enables you to have regular pressure or extra pressure depending on how tight you stretch it! The velcro seems much more well-made and so much stronger. I can do all my regular activities such as doing laundry, bending over, working out and stretching and the brace stays in place no slipping down or loosening. When you are trying to relieve significant pain you want to know that your support will stay in place. It even has a removable lumbar support so depending on the extent of my pain I can either have it there and adjust it to your liking or remove it. I think that is a really a cool option!
I think it goes without saying that I am obviously a huge supporter of this back brace! I highly recommend this Back Brace to anyone you suffers from back pain or simply needs some extra support.
I was so excited to get this, I know that probably seems really silly but since the age of 10 I have suffered from severe {and I mean severe} Achilles tendinous. It has no rhyme or reason, I have no idea when it will strike, it doesn’t matter how little or how active I am, it can strike at any moment and sometimes it’s livable but honestly guys sometimes it is so painful that I cry.  I have spent a lot of time just like with my back in physical therapy, I have tried all kinds of different tips and tricks, I’ve gone to an orthopedic surgeon, I’ve gone to for you name it, I’ve done it and I have gotten very little relief from my tendinitis pain.
So when The opportunity arose for me to try out the Vive Health Ankle Support I jumped at it. The day the package arrived I was having a horrific bout of tendinitis pain, so I ripped open the box and took the ankle support out. I was really impressed with the quality of it, I was thinking it was going to be more of a pull on sleeve but as you can see that is not the case. This is like the Goliath of ankle support! It has a double velcro closure in the back so it’s really easy to get on, it also has double Velcro straps so you can create the pressure that you need for your specific ankle pain. Due to the pain that I was suffering from I put it on and I put it on pretty tight. Sometimes when you put on a ankle support or brace your toes and feet can feel tingly or your foot feels cold or even falls asleep, that was not the case with the Vive Health Ankle Support.
This brace has a really cool feature, on the back there is a injury support panel so it helps prevent re-injury which I think is a great option because it fights against re-injury and it can help you heal so much quicker.
Another cool things is that it is made from breathable neoprene which I think is genius, I cannot tell you how many times I have used ankle supports {or supports in general} that are just not breathable at all! Because if Neoprene I haven’t gotten sweat at all, in fact I like wearing a sock while wearing the support! I have even slept in it with no issues at all. This particular ankle support is slightly bulky so you may or may not be able to wear shoes with it {I have worn my Nikes with it and it’s OK} but I actually prefer for in home use.
The Vive Health Guarantee
Vive Health backs it’s commitment to quality with 100% satisfaction guarantee. We will replace or exchange any product that is damaged or defective to your complete satisfaction within 60 days of purchase.
If you suffer from a reoccurring pain or an injury I highly recommend checking out Vive Health and all their products {they have a lot more than just these}
Please don’t hesitate and you don’t have to live in pain! 
Yay! Vive Health has given me a great coupon code for you guys!
You can pick both products shown from Amazon too! Back Brace and Ankle Support. Please note the coupon code for  Vive Health

Birthday Party Dress Feat. Sugar & Snails Couture

Sugar and Snails Couture

My daughter Gabriella and I couldn’t be more excited to share all about the beautiful Gold & Sequin party dress Sugar & Snails sent her for her birthday!

Gabriella is about to celebrate her birthday {her and her twin brother turn 7 next week!} and she LOVES anything sparkly with tulle and twirly, this dress fits the bill perfectly!


This Gold Sequin and Tulle Party Dress is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! The day it arrived we opened the package together and when she saw it she gasped and said “Oh mommy this is so beautiful!” and she is totally right it is! Honestly the photos don’t do it justice it is SO sparkly! The tulle skirt is made with multi layers of soft tulle not the scratchy kind that can leave a little girl itchy {like mine} it is hemmed so there is no worry or unraveling or shredding like tulle sometimes can. The Sequin top is lined on the inside so no worrying about scratchy sequins either. It has a long zipper that makes it very easy to put on! My daughter loves wearing this dress for tea parties, pretend play or just playing…she headed outside to jump on the trampoline with it on…but quickly thought better of it and changed!


This dress photographs so beautifully and would be perfect for any type of photographs especially for outdoor birthday photos. It will make the most perfectly stunning Christmas or Holiday dress. It would also be a stunning flowergirl dress or perfect for little sisters at  Quinceañeras and Bat Mitzvahs or any special occasion…for Gabriella this is an everyday dress…going to the store or simply going to get the mail she is dressed in full glam!


Sugar & Snails Couture has so much more than Gabriella’s dress, in fact they specializes in Boutique Dreses, Headbands & Bandana Bibs and trust me you will want everything!

We are in love with this Black Lace Maxie Dress! I think this would be a perfect addition to any little girls back to school wardrobe!

Black Lace Maxi Dress

as well as these Lace Vintage Dresses, oh with a sweater, knee high socks and boots they  would be PERFECT for fall!

Lace Vintage Dress

Lace Vintage Dress

My daughter LOVES this headband and so do I! Its really versatile and would go great with fancy outfits, shorts in the summer or jeans and sweatshirt in the fall/winter!

Beige Satin Flower Headband

Let’s be real here…my daughter wants all the dresses and all the headbands!

We have not washed this dress yet because it hasn’t needed it, however I will hand wash it and lay it flat to dry so I don’t run the risk of melting the tulle or losing the sequins.

Guess what? We have a fun surprise especially for you! ss3
