What I’m Reading | June | Wild and Free

W&F

Do you want to live “Wild and Free”? In the their new book Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan takes us back to God’s original plan for women, a beautiful life living wild for God and free from the expectations of this world. How many times have we or other women/mom we know buckle under the pressure of specifically social media pressure? It’s sad that so many women are living backed into a corner because of expectation…many times unattainable expectations. These lovely lady sharing their own stories of feeling not enough, being too much and everything in between, it speaks to your soul with inspiration to live life Wild and Free, like wild horses ❤ {when you read the book you’ll get it}

Whether you are a shy observer like Hayley or bold go getter like Jess, you will be spoken to and I know your heart will be touched, and more than likely you will find your self identifying with one or both of these ladies. I found my self stunned as they shared their  stories…my story! I absolutely love that throughout the book we’re reminded that we are not alone in our struggles, but we are blessed to have a community of women who long to live this wild and free life as well. Are you like me and have a hard time allowing the shackles of shame break and let people in? They help you embrace the community that God has uniquely put you. Thought this book it is reiterated that you are just as you are, because the you that you are is perfect. Don’t forget that you are completely loved and worthy.

This book is something that I think all women need in their lives! Looking for a gift for a woman in your life? Consider this book! This would also be a great book for a women bible study!

Get a beautiful home pedicure with Emjoi

emjoi-logo-trans-240

Who doesn’t love getting a pedicure? There is nothing quite like relaxing at the spa or salon while you get pampered! Ooh I love it , however regular pedicures can get pretty expensive so honestly I rarely go and just end up giving myself a pedicure at home. Unfortunately there is a defiant downfall to a home pedicure…I never get the same effect at home, the salon/spa always seem to have tools that I don’t have nor are readily available, this is a real bummer because I am plagued with horribly calloused and crack heels/feet and they really need help! I’ve tried so many things the most common being the Pumice Stone and Pedi Egg. The pumice stone worked ok and the Pedi Egg worked pretty well, but the honesty both left my arm sore since it takes a good 30 minutes to get one heel smooth…so lets be real here…I rarely do this step. I just do a nice foot soak, lather my feet in coconut oil, body butter or foot treatment lotion and call it good.

emjoi

Then I got the  Emjoi Micro-Pedi! I about freaked at how QUICK and EASY it was to get beautiful smooth and callous free feet, and it seriously it took a couple of minutes to get rid of some really ugly rough spots and has worked magic one my deep cracked heels!!!

Whats so great about the Emjoi Micro-Pedi?

  • The Micro-Pedi’s awesome blue roller spins around 30 times a second and buffs callouses, cracks and rough spots effortlessly! No more sore arm from scrubbing your heels manually, the Emoji micro pedi does the work for you!
  • The Micro-Pedi is totally safe to use, if you press too hard it slows and makes it virtually impossible to cut or burn your feet. I had zero discomfort {psst…after getting mine I ordered my mom one too and she said it has never given her any kind of discomfort what so ever!}
  • The Micro-Pedi is the perfect size for travel! Have a tropical summer vacation? Don’t forget to pack a Micro Pedi. Although I think this guy is a perfect size for travel some may not, fear not there is a smaller travel size available!

pedi2

  • The Micro-Pedi has a great price tag  $39.95! It’s worth every penny!
  • The Micro-Pedi is battery operated {requires 2 x AA batteries} and has rubberized grip making it super easy to hold on to.

Are you dying to get your hands on Emjoi Micro-Pedi? Get yours here.

Kushyfoot Fall/Winter 2015 Collection {Review & GIVEAWAY!!}

kushyfoot-logo

Remember a few weeks ago when I shared with you guys my new love for Kushyfoot?

I am beyond thrilled to bring you another collab with Kushyfoot and share some of the new fall/winter 2015 collection.

Since it is the  fall winter collection I’m sure it won’t come as any surprise that I received quite a few pairs of tights! I am so excited about this because I love tights in the fall and in the winter, so I really feel like this was a tailor-made collaboration for me!

unnamed

In addition to the tights I received a fantastic pair of fleece knee-high trouser socks, a pair of sheer anklet socks and a pair of my all-time favorite flats to go!

Here’s a little breakdown of everything…

Thumbnail.ashx

Fashion Tights in Fishnet $7.49

Anyone who grew up in the 80s knows the importance of a nice pair of fishnet tights! I have been loving these, I love that I can throw on a dress and a pair of boots and these fishnets and have a super cute outfit! I wore these out a few days ago and I got so many compliments! My sister-in-law said that they were the nicest quality she’s seen in a long time!

Fashion Tights in Diamond $7.49

I was thrilled to receive this diamond pair of tights, the pattern is so beautiful! Every time I wear them I get so many compliments on them! I’m thinking I need to get another pair or two for fall and winter because I’m probably going to wear these out wearing them so much! Oh and these tight have a massaging soul which is really comfortable I highly recommend them!

unnamed-5

Opaque Tights in Navy Blue $7.49

O love these navy blue opaque tights! I have a really cute dress that has a navy blue bodice and I have had a really hard time finding a pair of tights that match…well wouldn’t you know these tights are a perfect match! As with the other these tights have a massaging foot sole and are super comfortable. Just like the others  I get compliments on them all the time I think it’s because they are navy blue and it’s just not the color that you see very often. I highly recommend these as well!

Shaping Tights in Black $7.49
These tights have the massaging sole as well and a controlled top so they’re not sliding down. These are the perfect black tights to take your outfit up a notch of chic! I love the way that these tights look with my brown boots, pink boots, black boots, camel boots, they look good with everything! I do really love these and I highly recommend them as well!

OK so we’re seeing theme here!  I 100% recommend kushyfoot tights!

Trouser Socks $5.99

Oh these socks! SUPER soft and cozy inside! I have been wearing theses no stop! They are perfect with dresses, jeans, pants whatever! They have kept my feet so warm and I love that! If I was going to buy a 2nd of anything I received it would hands down be another pair or two of these! You need these!

Thumbnail-1.ashx

Sheer Anklet $11.97 / 3 pairs

these adorable little sheer socks go great with dressy shoes or converse. They are really thin so they work great with heels or even TOMS! I personally have been wearing them with jeans and converse or with my ugg boots {you know sometimes those boots just get too hot ;)} I’m really glad I got these…I honestly probably would not have bought these on my own but I do like that they are a pretty little sheer pair of socks…great to throw in my purse especially for trying on shoes!

Thumbnail.ashx

Flats to Go $9.99-$11.99

If you read my last post {you can read that here} you know that I am just in love with these, so I was beyond thrilled to receive another alligator print! These are perfect I can keep a pair in the car and keep a pair by the front door and always have access to them! I wear them all the time. I have had so many people send me emails since my last post asking about them! I had one particular reader email me because she did not believe me that they were so inexpensive, she was sure they were actually high-end flats!! I assured her they were $11.99 and she was thrilled and let me know she had picked up a few pairs! As I mentioned in my previous post…YOU NEED these!! Get them today! They are great!

Cave Tools 3 Piece Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set

logo-1

When Cave Tools reached out to me about reviewing their 3 Piece Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set I was so beyond excited! Just days before receiving the email from Michael at Cave Tools my husband and I were really wanting to get a set of nice barbecue utensils but all the ones that we looked at were really small or really cheap feeling. Plus we didn’t want to pay an arm and leg for something that we felt was sub par quality. It was like the collab with Cave Tools was meant to be!

unnamed-11

When the set arrived I was amazed and the size and quality of the set, it is  large and very heavy-duty! The Cave Tools website states that this set has 20% thicker stainless steel than regular grill sets which means they won’t been under pressure and I’m here to tell you that is 100% true!! The 3 Piece Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set is dishwasher safe, which is awesome, we run them through the dishwasher every time we barbecue and we barbecue a lot! {so far there has been zero signs of wear and tear on the set!}

OK, OK so I know you’re wondering what comes in the set!unnamed-6

 

The heavy-duty Barbecue Spatula:

unnamed-7

This spatula it is really different than any of the other ones I’ve ever seen, used or had, the edge of the spatula has teeth making it a “spatula knife” this really comes in handy if you need to check to
see if your food is cooked all the way or you need to separate some ribs directly on the bbq! For us this came in very handy for cutting burgers and half

unnamed-10

Our twins sometimes just aren’t hungry enough to eat an entire hamburger so we can quickly cut a burger in half with out dirtying up anything else. The edge is very sharp so if you get the set be very careful! Oh and it has a bottle opener!

Next up…

The Grilling Tongs:

unnamed-8

These tongs are so awesome! I love how easily you can flip actually 2 inch steak or large chicken breast with the bone in. I’ve actually been using them on the grill as well as just in my regular cooking in the oven! Seriously, they can flip or grip anything with such great ease including a whole chicken!!! These tongs have also been used as salad tongs and work awesome for that too!

Finally…

The Barbecue Fork:  {I’m sorry I didn’t get a good photo of the Fork}

unnamed-9

I have never had a barbecue fork that I’ve liked…honestly I’ve always wondered what the point of a bbq fork because every single one I have ever had has buckled under weight, whether it’s a small chicken breast or a large thick steak, I’ve never had one that hasn’t buckled or bent! Until this barbecue fork!!! This sucker is so sturdy there is no bending of it no matter what! I can easily remove a whole chicken, brisket or roast from the BBQ or oven and transfer it to a cutting board! NO BENDING at all!!

Is far as I’m concerned if you are somebody who barbecues a lot or does a lot of cooking I highly recommend the 3 Piece Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set from Cave Tools! It is by far the best barbecue set I have every used! It’s not just beautiful and sturdy but it really does the job!

The 3 Piece Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set retails for $45 at Cave Tools! Ooh, something that I really like about the Cave Tools website is they not only accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover but they also take PayPal which is a huge plus for me personally.

So are you ready to do some barbecuing? Head over to Cave Tools and grab yourself the 3 Piece Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set!

Kushyfoot Review

kushyfoot-logo

When Kushyfoot approached me about reviewing some of their products, I honestly had never heard of them before but I love trying new things so I was excited to give them a try. After doing a little research and discovering they have been around since 2003 and have pretty fantastic products I was even more excited!  Their name is not only cute but it’s also very clever because since the main goal of Kushyfoot is to provide comfort for your feet throughout the day! Kushyfoot offers tons of different tights, knee highs, socks, foot covers and flats to go.

Kushyfoot sent me some really great stuff!

KF

including:

Thumbnail-1.ashx

Athletic Foot Cover Designed to wear with your runners, or canvas sneakers, this foot cover provides extra comfort in your shoes for sport activities.

unnamed-2I really like the Athletic Foot Cover a LOT! They have a fantastic heel gripper that keeps the sock in place rather than sliding off bunching in your shoe and being just plain uncomfortable! Although these are meant to be used with tennis shoes or similar I actually wore them with a pair of combat style boots…all day long…well guess what? The socks totally and completely stayed in place! I was really impressed with the heel gripper, not only with my boots but also when I wore them running. When you are a runner you know a thing or two about ankle socks, actually I rarely ever where socks running because regardless of the style they always seem to slip off my heel or they are too high and add pressure to my ankle. That is not the case with these! I really think these socks will be perfect to throw on with a pair of ugg boots this winter to add a little extra comfort and warmth! Oh and the cut of these socks are great and are perfect to wear with TOMS or Converse and you can’t even tell you have on socks!

Thumbnail-2.ashx

Yoga Socks Kushyfoot® yoga socks are one-of-a-kind. Made exclusively to fit like a glove, socks feature open toes and a non-slip sole to grip the floor and mat. Perfect for activities that require balance and stability. Yoga socks also keep your feet clean and help warm up feet in winter months when your muscles are cold. Also great for Barre and Pilates! 

unnamed-3
unnamed-4I LOVE these Yoga Socks! They are comfortable and make holding even the most difficult poses so much easier! The non-slip sole is the perfect amount of grip. I have had non-slip socks in the past and they have either had way too little grip that serves no purpose or way too much sticky grip, resulting in having all kinds of gunk stuck in the grippers…yuck! In fact I have a few different yoga mats and one of them is notoriously slippery…I mean I feel my foot slipping in the warrior 1…now that is slippery! So I was so excited to try out these Yoga Socks with that particular mat! YAY no slip baby! In my opinion these are more than just yoga socks. I do NOT wear socks to bed, in fact I hate wearing socks to bed because me feet get way too hot, but I also have very dry feet and heels, {although these yoga socks were not necessarily intended for this} they are AMAZING to wear over an overnight foot moisturizing  treatment and I can wear these to bed because I guess my feet can breathe because my toe are not confined inside the sock…ok so I’m a little bit of a weirdo but there is no judgement here 😉 All in all I love these for many different reasons, plus they are toe sock {is that what their called? That’s what I’ve always called them…you know when your toes each have their own little home!} This was my favorite type of sock with I was a kid!

Thumbnail.ashx

Flats To Go Designed with a soft sole, flats can be rolled up or folded so that you can tote them in your purse ready for any potential shoe emergency. Designed for indoor use and occasionally on smooth outdoor surfaces. Great for travel too!

unnamed-5

unnamed-8Out of everything I received I was most excited to try out the Flats To Go! I wasn’t really sure what to expect?! I was so incredibly excited when they arrived and I discovered that not only are they very lightweight and very well made but they’re super comfortable AND extremely trendy and fashionable!! Flats To Go are designed for indoor or smooth surface outdoor use {so you won’t want to go hiking in them 😉 } I’ve gotta tell you I LOVE THEM!  I really want to get all the other style and stash them all over the car and in my purse so I will always have a super cute pair of shoes when my feet are achy or cold!unnamed-7

They fit perfectly in my purse…did I mention they fold up and take up very little space! How many times have you worn the super cute but VERY uncomfortable shoes to a wedding or party only to have your feet are screaming half way through? Yeah…been there, the Flats To Go are PERFECT for just such an occasion! These would be a perfect addition to a travelers carry on bag for both walking in airports and keeping feet warm on the plane. I have a quite a few friends who are excepting over the next 6 months and Flats To Go would be an awesome baby shower gift for mama! These would be excellent for swollen feet and for the hospital. I’m sure I don’t have to say this but…I love Flats To Go I’ve worn them to the grocery store, doctors appointments, PT appointments, church and of course they’ve gotten a TON of use around the house, but I think the best part about the Flats To Go are the reactions I get when people realize they are not high-end ballet flats! Quite a few of my friends have already picked up some Flats To Go and I’ve only had them for a few days, I really think that speaks volumes about them!

I love everything that Kushyfoot sent me and cannot wait to try out the Lace Foot CoversPeep Toe Foot Cover and of course Snake Print Flats to Go®

My favorite iPad case! {Trident Kraken A.M.S}

trident

When it comes my iPad I want it to be protected and secure, after all I have three kids who take over my iPad whenever they are given the opportunity! I have had the absolute worst time finding iPad cases that I like that was actually protective and functional not only for myself, but for homeschooling and for my kids to use. I’ve had many cases, some of the magnetizing cases are great at first but almost every single one I’ve had has demagnetized after just a short amount time and literally just falls off?!? The folio cases are great as well in fact I was sure this style would be my absolute faves…but the binding eventually starts wearing out! What’s a girl to do? I was thrilled when my friend Niki from Trident Case sent me a case to use and enjoy! I am so excited to introduce you to my brand-new iPad case the Trident – Kraken A.M.S.

Kraken A.M.S. Series cases are the absolute strongest, most durable cases we make. The Kraken A.M.S. case for tablets consists of shock-absorbing silicone inner layer, covered by a hardened polycarbonate outer-casing, with a built-in screen protector, to provide maximum protection.

Untitled-1

As soon as I opened the package I was impressed with the Trident Kraken AMS case. Oh, I got hot pink {of course} it comes in a bunch of other great colors! 

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Red 
  • Purple
  • Orange
  • Green
  • Maroon 

My hubby wants the Green {it’s Seahawks green baby!}

This case has three different parts – front plate, silicone sleeve, back plate to ensure ultimate protection!

IMG_4553

Check out this awesome video from trade-ins YouTube page talk about giving your iPad case a run for its money huh!?

So there are some things that I love about Trident:

944755_630625486950133_283472548_nThese cases are TOUGH! Trust me my kids have dropped my iPad face down on concrete and NOTHING…not even a scratch! 

Check out this tough test that Trident did on the Kraken A.M.S case

Trident cases are proudly made in the United States they have a factory in California! All Trident cases are manufactured and assembled right here in the United States!

Trident cases are biodegradable!

1-trident-case-environmental-responsibility

 The cool thing about the Trident cases is that they’re not just for Apple products! They cover the ENTIRE spectrum!
