Fashion: Eshakti dress : Custom fit for you

Image
( I was given a dress as compensation for this review and for my honest thoughts ) 
Eshakti is a wonderful company that does not get a lot of credit like it should. I was given a sample a dress made to my specifications and something that would fit my body size. And any of these dresses would and can be fit to almost anybody shape and the length is fitted as well. Just in time for the Holiday season , when everyone is looking for that one special dress for the holiday party of the season. You can be wearing something that is going to fit you right and something that will make you look like the belle of the ball.
These dresses come in different colors and sizes and styles. I actually bought myself an Eshakti dress before I was given one and it still fits perfectly. Custom Tailored means that this dress will fit your frame while fitting your stature and size.
Just skimming the site today I found , that they have everything sorted by color and size . A wedding collection , beautiful wel…

Charlie The Tramp : Children's book Review and Giveaway!

Image
I received a copy of this book for promotional reasons and my honest and unbiased review these thoughts are my own. Charlie the Beaver wants to be a tramp when he grows up. “Tramps don’t have to learn how to chop down trees and how to roll logs and how to build dams. Tramps just tramp around and have a good time. Tramps carry sticks with little bundles tied to them. They sleep in a field when the weather is nice, and when it rains they sleep in a barn.” Charlie sets off with his bundle. But when he hears water trickling, he can’t get to sleep. Will he be able to resist the urge to make it stop? As Grandfather Beaver says, “You never know when a tramp will turn out to be a beaver.”

Your Hopes For Your Blog:

Image
Another break , from my Usual Reviews, think of it as a random post but at the same time. Think of it as someway to get to know me. I started this blog as a way to connect and to expand my writing at the same time. I watched and saw others on social media who seemed to enjoy what they were doing. And I thought it looked like fun. Well for me honestly it is fun , I get to expand my writing . So ok here goes , I have two blogs one is reviews and thoughts on life. When the other is more life and thoughts and faith. I have big dreams for either , I want to reach others with my personal blog which can be found here.

But this Review blog , I see so many that are given trips and given chances to do . Really cool media stuff but these bloggers have followers in the millions and that is something. They get products in the mail voluntarily and most can make a stable income in their pj's . Isnt that something? I honestly just wish someday it wo…

Pure Clay Masks: by Loreal Review

Image
I was chosen by bzz agent to try  new pure clay masks from the brand L'Oreal. There are several choices and they each have their own formulas  to help with your skin. One which is a greenish color which helps to Purify and Mattify  it comes with 3 pure clay and eucalyptus. That was the first one that I have tried and that one really was a favorite of mine.  My face felt cooled and was soft that truly made a difference. Then the black colored clay is to Detox and Brighten and pictured with me sorry for my dazed look. This one as well has 3 pure clay's and charcoal, which is different from the green colored facial mask. Now the last one , which is a reddish color and the only mask that I have not tried helps with refining pores and exfoliates the skin. Either way I have had a good experience with all the masks that I have had. Taking care of your skin is something that is worthwhile and something that you need to do. I have always had a good experience with any products that I …

REPOST : Day 10 Blogging Challenge Best Trip You have ever taken.

Image
Please enjoy a repost today from my personal/Lifestyle blog : Day 10: The best trip you have ever taken.  So , I have been to a few places I have been to mexico twice both on missions. I have been to California for a Youth meeting of sorts. I have been to Florida twice , once on missions and youth meeting at the same time. The other time was for an actual vacation with my best friend , even though I would count my missions trips as vacations to me in most words. I have been to Texas countless times for youth rallies and church stuff and then for an actual vacation and seeing family. So I have traveled , I mainly do missions because that is apart of my heart. Is spreading the word of God to those who may not know it or honestly to bring comfort to those who need it.  I think my best ever trip is a combination of mission trips that I have taken , even though I can admit. Going on vacation for yourself is fun , it doesn't leave the same impression that missions can have. My last well …

Priceless The Movie: Review and Thoughts

Image
PRICELESS is a powerful story of James Stevens who was, at one time, a good man with a great life -- but that was then and this is now. After the tragic death of his wife and losing custody of his little girl, James is at the darkest crossroad of his life. Angry, desperate, and unable to hold down a steady job, he agrees to drive a box truck on a shady, one-time trip cross country for cash -- no questions asked. But when he discovers what he is delivering is actually who, he is compelled to save two beautiful and frightened sisters who are unaware of the danger that awaits them. Can love, strength, and faith redefine his past and change the course of his future? This unlikely hero risks it all to save these women, confront the forces that oppose him and ultimately discover the life he was meant to live.Written by Roadside Attractions

Day 7 Five Favorite Songs:

Honestly , this is another hard question for me when it comes down to it. I love music , Though I mostly stay away from "secular" music . Pardon my terms , I do still listen to my favorites I cannot completely abandon those and then I do have new favorites. First I love anything From For king and country and I was blessed to see them perform about two weeks ago. I love taylor swift and yes I am a swiftie , the current songs on repeat from her are out of the woods , back to december , and all too well. As you can somewhat tell my ex has been on my mind and it doesnt help that what would have been five or four years.. I rather not keep count . We would have been together , we were together for 3 years and were on the road to getting married... but I digress. I love Little Big Towns new single better man. Which also brings light to my feelings around this time , also figures why I seem to dream about him this time. From my christian roots , I love any…

This week in Review ...

Image
So as this week comes to a close , I often reflect on the week and the many challenges that I have had to face. Funny enough usual top two are , my lack of sleep ( I am a college student) and not enough time to do everything that I need to do.
Which in turn , leaves a lot of projects in my apartment not done.. aka my dishes in my sink. Or half done .. I owe my math teacher two lessons before the 18th. And I owe another teacher a quiz and a homework assignment. I am planning Christmas outreach projects such as operation Christmas child, and a local one which gives gifts to local kids from the children's  home. While thinking of other missions and on the look out for my annual shopping for charity event.
I am planning my weekend as we speak , DVD watching time with the family as well maybe a trip to the movie theater near by. And yes working on homework and starting on a term paper and maybe getting to try out some products! Check for those posts soon. I try to think of fun project…

Food ... IN A CUP! Favorites and trials

Image
Today I am going to talk about , Food in a cup! These are like the college students bread and butter when it comes to Dorm Living. Because though some universities may offer a kitchen you cannot cook it all. I have well now use to have a negativity about these because they always seemed to taste different than stuff I can cook at home. And now that there is a need and a want for items that are fast and quick to make , more companies come out with items. And then pintrest is full and I mean FULL of recipes of items you can make in a mug. And those I want to tell you , do those with a side of caution... My mother and me made some in mugs and the directions gave you a whole lot of cake.. Anyways I am going to cover my top TWO favorites , since I am a very picky eater when it comes down to it. So my top two must have right now are... The Quaker oatmeal bowls and Rice a Roni rice bowls these are so rich in flavor and so simple to make! I can simply talk about how good they are but why do…

Day of the Dead , It is not just a Halloween Costume

Image
Halloween was yesterday, and with that came a lot of costumes. So many different costumes that people wore and had fun with. When I write this post I want people to be informed, and to let them know. I am not here to bash anyone , for wearing a day of the dead costume. I just want people to know the historical thought behind it. Its been a recent trend , for stores to group both holiday's day of the dead. And Halloween together , their decorations are on the same shelf's and somehow people think of them as the same thing.  Day of the Dead or rather El Dia de los Muertos , is a special Holiday that is celebrated after Halloween on November 1st. The day after Halloween , this originated from tradition in mexico to celebrate and be with loved ones that have passed on. Celebrate their time on earth , This is usually celebrated with food , and drinks and parades . And alters that are usually made up at a families home to celebrate those who have passed on. They usually start decorat…
