REVIEW OF DIAL COCONUT WATER REFRESHING MANGO BODY WASH!



Dial® Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash is the newest member of the Dial® Coconut Water family. This moisturizing body wash is the first of its kind to contain healthy, hydrating coconut water to refresh and clean skin. The Dial® brand of skin care just got even healthier and great-smelling. 




I prefer body washes over soap because soap makes my skin feel dry. This hydrating body wash makes my skin feel soft and refreshed. The coconut and mango smell is fantastic and they are not overwhelming. It lathers well, and rinses easily. The body wash provides rich antioxidants and electrolytes that helps keep you skin healthy and strong. For more information on this great family body wash please visit them on Facebook.

REVIEW OF SPELLBINDERS CELEBRATIONS COLLECTION

  

 I would like to introduce Spellbinders Celebrations by Richard Garay, a complete collection of dies, stamps, paper, inks and accessories all harmonized to work perfectly together.  Create one-of-a-kind cards, gifts, scrapbook layouts and more.

Inspired by his passion for paper crafts, event hosing; and handmade greetings, Richard Garay designed the line to help papercrafters and hostesses achieve beautiful results every time.  Everything is coordinated, so this cheerful, bright and exciting collection makes creating a Celebration not only easy but also fun. 

Every day is a perfect day for a celebration!

Thanks to Purex Insiders and Spellbinders, I had the opportunity to try two of their great  projects. I was provided with two kits, one for a goodie bag and the other kit was for a card. The kits came with illustrated instructions that were east to follow. It only took me a couple of minutes to put each kit together. I only needed scissors and glue to complete the project. 
Best day Ever Treat Bag. 

This is perfect to give as a goody bag at a party and was easy to make. I had to cut a couple of pieces to make the orange tag and then everything fell together perfectly.

What a cleaver and cute project.



Celebrate Party Hat Card

This was more fun to make and is great to be used as an invitation. You can even change the wording for any occasion. I love the 3D effect but it is hard to see in the photo.

This was so easy to make.

So if you are inspired by a passion for crafts and handmade greetings then you should give Spellbinders Celebrations a try.The web site is very informative and they even have a "How To" page with videos and tutorials to help you get started. The cardstock and pattern pattern come in captivating colors that are sure to make your day.

REVIEW OF IMPERVIOUS BY HEATHER LETTO

Impervious (Ascension #1) by Heather Letto
Publication date: April 29th 2014
Genres: Dystopia, Post-Apocalyptic, Young Adult

Synopsis:

The residents of Impervious are the remnant—survivors of the War of Annihilation. And though the city is chockfull of pleasures to tantalize and entertain, a beast lurks in its corners haunting the residents with its presence. The Beast—a mysterious and terminal illness--has killed off most of Generations One, Two and Three. And as Gen-Four prepares to take the stage a provocative, yet questionable, new method to avoid an untimely death becomes a cultural rage. 

But Fran is counter-cultural. And living off the grid in true rebel fashion, her life is far from opulent. Scurrying through dark tunnels, searching for hot meals and ditching the holographic security team encompass most of her day. However, she views it as a healthy trade-off. Unaccountability means The Council can’t steal her sliver of hope--a belief that she’ll see The Epoch arrive before the beast can pull her into its fetid embrace. 

After losing her mother and then her Rebel mentor, however, she grasps painfully onto the splintered sliver, until a new hope is born. First through Pete. And then through a miraculous discovery. 

But the question still haunts her…

Can she outrun The Beast?
 

My Thoughts:

The theme of the novel reminds me of the "Hunger Games. The main character, Fran lives in the ventilation system of an underground  and has to work hard everyday to prevent being caught by the "Holographic Security System". Fran is a very strong willed teenager and is on a mission to release the grip of the "Council of Impervious" and eventually escape to the world outside that she is sure exists. I really enjoyed the novel, especially the relationship between Fran and Pete a rebel/boyfriend. I wonder what will happen to them in the next installment of the series.
