Whoa it’s September!? Can you believe it? Summer sure went quick didn’t it? Well at least it did for us. Today I thought that I would do a Friday favorite! I haven’t done one in a really long time and since it is the first Friday in September it seemed perfect! Yes I am planning on keeping this as a regular Friday favorite series on my blog! Yay!

So today I have some very random favorites for you covering all categories!   So without further ado here are today’s Friday favorites!

 Bible Belles: Hannah at the Belle Prayer:

Bible Belles Review {thelifeinbloom.com}

Last month I shared with you guys about a brand-new book series written for girls age 6 to 10. I showed you the first book in the series called The Adventures of Rooney Cruz: Hannah The Belle of Prayer! Since receiving this book my daughter has been obsessed! She loves this book so much. She always has it with her, she always wants me to read it to her and if I am not reading it then she is looking at it the picture! The picture above was on the day her and her twin brother were getting their “about six-year-old” pictures,  while she was waiting she grabbed her Bible Belles Book to look at it and I snapped this picture! How adorable! I highly recommend if you have a daughter/granddaughter of that age to head over to the  Bible Belles website and grab yourself a hard copy or an e-book! {If you’re interested in reading my review here’s the link}

Colourpop Cosmetics:

CP

Have you guys tried Colourpop Cosmetics? I have mentioned them many times in social media posts in the past but I just had to share more about them! They are more just a Friday favorite, they are an always and forever, every single day favorite! Their “Super Shock” eyeshadows are like nothing I have ever felt before! They have a creamy almost wet texture and when applied to your eyelid they ‘dry’ beautifully…but not in a dry cakey way, does that make sense? Then there’s the lippie sticks…awesome as well! They are super creamy! I love the matte lippies so I was thrilled when they came out with their ultra Matte liquid lipsticks. So far I’m only grabbed up two but I think I need them all! I am so once again amazingly impressed with Colourpop, the formulations, color payoff and lasting power are totally on point! On top of everything they just released their new fall line that is a throwback to the 90s and if you were a teenager or young adult in the 90s then you remember that awesome make up! This line was made for me, back in the day my sister and I always rocked the brown mauvey lips … and the eyeshadows…swoon! I’m so excited, so of course I had to order pretty much the entire line…arriving on Tuesday! EEEK! Oh guys duh! They are HIGH quality but check out these prices

  • Super Shock Eyeshadows $5
  • Lippies and Lip Pencils $5
  • Blush & Bronzer $8
  • Ultra Matte Liquid Lip $6
  • Collections/Sets $20-$39

AMAZING!!! Head over to Colourpop and grab some goodies! They are actually having a Labor Day sale:

KT Tape:

KT

I’m absolutely in love with KT Tape! As I’ve mentioned in past posts and social media posts I currently suffer from a slipped bulging disc that is pinching a nerve in my back. KT tape  has been an amazing lifesaver and keeps me pain-free! Without the KT tape my left arm goes fully numb because of the pinched nerve the KT tape does a great job of reliving that pressure on the nerve and gives me feeling back in my arm. KT makes me be happy camper! My husband has been loving the KT tape as well. He has severe tendinitis in his elbow/forarm which has resulted in some pretty excruciating pain, we’ve been taping his elbow and its doing just as awesome on his arm! Seriously if you have an ailment or are interested in learning more about KT tape I suggest you head over to their website and check it out! They even have videos on how to properly tape! Find KT tape in a store near you HERE!

Kirkland Signature ¼ Zip Pullover in Teal:

So other day we were walking around Costco, getting some groceries and we walked past a table with some of the new fall clothing and I immediately fell in love with this pullover. I got the teal color {pictured} and I cannot stop wearing it…seriously I have been wearing it EVERY SINGLE day since I got it! It’s fleece {ish} lined so it’s perfect on our evening walks since its been getting pretty chilly at night! I know that I’m gonna love it come fall when we’re out at the pumpkin patch or on hikes! If you have a Costco membership head over there they got a bunch of other colors! I’m going back to get the purple, the gray and maybe the red to add to my closet!

Kushyfoot Flats to Go:

Flats to Go Review {thelifeinbloom.com}

A few days ago I shared Kushyfoot  Flats to Go. I am absolutely in love with these Flats to Go, they are rad you can literally fold them and throw in your purse but they aren’t just convenient they are so cute & stylish and really are comfortable, I mean you wouldn’t want to be walking on gravel in them because they are thin and light, however they get the job done beautifully and I have wore them all out and about and I get compliments on them all the time!  I highly recommend them of course check out because you put website and grab yourself a pair as well! I want them all…Now if they only had Pink and Purple! 😉

The Adventures of Rooney Cruz: Hannah, The Belle of Prayer Review

Bible_Belles_Pink-Menu-Logo-high-res

Bible Belles is a series based on five superhero women of the Bible: Hannah, Esther, Abigail, Ruth, and Deborah. HEARD. These women were extraordinary because they made a different kind of noise than the noise of today’s world. Today, the girls who are loud, rude, and obsessed with outer beauty are the ones a lot of girls look up to and try to act like. The Bible Belles series is a new way for girls to celebrate the qualities that make up a truly beautiful woman: prayer, patience, bravery, loyalty, and leadership. These five women represent the journey a young girl can take to understand God’s love and to be someone whose beauty isn’t measured by society’s standards. They symbolize the transformation of a girl who learns to see true beauty in herself and in others.

Today, I want to share an awesome new book, The Adventures of Rooney Cruz: Hannah The Belle of Prayer {book one in the series!} Honestly, this is hands-down one of the best books that my daughter and I have EVER read! She loves it and is already anxiously awaiting Esther {coming 2016}

RooneyAbout the adorable ROONEY CRUZ:

In Book One of the Bible Belles series, Rooney Cruz isn’t exactly having a great day. The normal teasing on the playground and, oh, that mud puddle! But soon an angel appears, and Rooney begins a journey that will change her life forever.

She makes a shocking discovery: superheroes are real, and she’s one of them!

Join Rooney as she uncovers the first secret superpower that she possesses: the Power of Prayer. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that will transform her into the greatest superhero of all: a Bible Belle!

About the book: the story starts with the Rooney dealing with some not so friendly girls on the playground. The girls are mean and complement her sarcastically, she slips and falls in the mud making the girls laugh, point at her and even threw a rock at her. Rooney just wants to be left alone so she runs to her favorite spot underneath an oak tree at the far edge of the playground. While she sits under the oak tree she wonders “why are they so mean?” “I don’t get it

BThen Rooney here’s Ring a ding DING! Where is that sound coming from? she wonders. It’s her angel, Mari. Mari is teeny tiny angel who takes her on a magical journey to past and into scriptures! They go visit a girl named Hannah, like Rooney Hannah know some not so nice girls.MariThey watch Hannah to see how she deals with similar situations when she was being bullied. Rooney learns that Hannah felt bullied by the other wife of her husband named Peninnah. She also learns when Hannah cried out to God and God heard her!

When they arrive back in the Rooney’s real life she is able to reflect on Hannah’s experience and cries out to God through a real honest heartfelt prayer.

The story ends with a little bit of a cliffhanger, we don’t know how it all ends up with the girls on the playground, but what we do know is whatever happens Rooney has learned that she can talk to God when ever she wants or needs to and God with willing carry all her troubles with him, he will hear her and he will always support her no matter what!

I absolutely love the message of the story, we all need to be reminded that God is always with us and he wants us to bring our questions, concerns and fears to him daily. He is an amazing God and gives us wisdom and insight into situations and no matter how the situation turns out he is always there with us to take care of us. This is exactly what I want my daughter to know! She loves EVERYTHING about this book, the illustrations and Rooney {who she happens to look a lot like!} It was so perfect and spoke to her little heart!

The book is wonderfully written by Erin and gorgeously illustrated by Rob Corley, a former Disney animator. We can’t wait for the rest of the books in the series! Psst…Esther: The Belle of Patience, coming out in early 2016!!!!
