The Girl's Still got it by Liz Curtis Higgs review

I was able to Read The Girl's Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World by Liz Curtis Higgs, through Blogging for books and I just loved it.

I have read many Books by Liz and I love them all. The book was more of a bible study than a historical christian fiction story.

Liz takes us on a journey through time as we follow Ruth and Naomi through all there hardships and Joys. Liz Curtis Higgs as the unique ability to really get us all into the story as few story tellers can. She does this with both humor and reverence which is a lovely combination and its what makes her stories leave lasting impressions.

If you love the story Of Ruth as much as I do you will love this book. Liz brings the characters to life and the message to our hearts as few can do . I am so happy I got a chance to add this book to my library and I will recommend it to everyone.

Globequake By Wallace Henley book review

I was able to read Globequake By Wallace Henley Though book-sneeze. I thought this book would be an excellent read for pastors and people in leadership rolls in the church. I did find it a bit hard to get into at first.

This book really gets to the heart of whats going on around us in the world most of which we can easily see for ourselves. It also is a great reminder for us to really prepare our children for what they will eventually have to face as adults in the current times. Its a reminder that though things keep spinning out of control we can be assured all things are in Gods hands. I really think this book has some great sermon and bible study materiel to help enrich family and education.

Wallace Henley has written more than 20 books and has worked in journalism and government for 3 decades. His work in the church is very well known and he is a columnist for the Christian post. I think anyone reading this work will come away with fresh ideas and motivation.

Ecover Laundry Liquid Sunny day Review

I was really happy to be able to try the new Ecover laundry liquid called sunny day through Naturally Savvy. I love Ecover product and use both the dishwasher tabs and the rinse aid which both work fantastic so you can imagine how excited I was to try the Liquid laundry detergent.

I am so happy that Ecover added a beautiful light scent to this laundry product that really dose smell like a sunny day. Ecover has done it again and I am so happy to have been selected to try it out on my laundry ,which I must say it did a really great job cleaning and making my laundry as fresh as a sunny day.

I liked it so much I did a video review for it so you can see what the bottle looks like up close, and how nice the packaging is so you can find it in the store. You can see my video review below but first here are some awesome things you need to know about this laundry liquid. It works in regular washing machines and HE machines, it keeps colors bright tackles tough stains and the fresh fragrance it made from plant-based ingredients. Its concentrated so you only need to use a very small amount even for though laundry problems.

Environmental benefits are no chlorine, no phosphates, no optical brighteners biodegradable, suitable for septic tanks, not tested on animals.

The product is packaged in an innovative, 100% PlantPlastic bottle. The bottles cut out the need for petrochemicals and are 100% Recyclable and 100% Renewable: made from responsibly harvested sugarcane! (Excludes cap and label).

Like I said I did a video review for it so here is that review which can also be found on my youtube channel under lorialcorn2006.

Konsyl Senna Prompt Review

I was recently able to try Konsyl's newer product called Senna Prompt. This product is an Bulk forming stimulant laxative that has much more natural ingredients,and it works very well.

The first Ingredient is Psyllium which is a soluble plant fiber. The second Ingredient is Sennosides which is the stimulant part. You would choose this product from the other Konsyl products because of constipation that seems to require more than just fiber, it should be use as a laxative not a daily supplement as the original Konsyl can be use for.

Konsyl Makes all kinds of products to help you get all the benefits of fiber that is so healthy for us especially as we get older. The products are all natural and can help with IBS gastrointestinal disorders and help with blood sugar levels.

You may have tried Konsyl's original formula with just the fiber in it. This one I got to try also has the stimulant in it, so Its more of a Laxative than a fiber supplenent.

That being said I love how well this works because sometimes just fiber is not going to get the job done as well or as Promptly. Konsyl Senna Prompt will work overnight with no cramping or diarrhea and I like that its more natural that other stimulant laxatives.

So To help you feel more like your “regular” self, Konsyl Senna Prompt contains the all-natural ingredients psyllium and senna that work together to soften stool, and provide overnight relief of occasional constipation. Conveniently available in 90 gluten-free capsules, Konsyl Senna Prompt is now available at Walmart. Now you can get a quick start to a healthy, fiber-rich lifestyle. To learn more about Konsyl Senna Prompt 90-Count Capsules and other Konsyl fiber product please visit your local Walmart Or head to the website here.


You can also find them on Facebook here

Konsyl Facebook

I did a video review so you can see the bottle it comes in as well as the size of capsule. As a person who needs to know the size of the pill I am to take I do this for others who have the same worry about buying something and finding out its to big for them, these are fine as you will see in the video.

After viewing the video you should head over to the Konsyl Senna Prompt overnight giveaway. Konsyl Senna Prompt Overnight Giveaway In support of the launch of their newest product, Senna Prompt, Konsyl has kicked off their Senna Prompt Overnight Giveaway with one winner each week for the next four weeks winning an Expedia gift card, a Walmart gift card and Konsyl Senna Prompt!

Thanks for having a look at my review and video for Konsyl's new Senna Prompt.

Michal by Jill Eileen Smith the wives of king David novels

I really loved reading Michal By Jill Eileen Smith. I saw a lot of myself in this historical woman and her Maid reminded me of my mom always their to help me.

I actually have now put her on my must read authors list. Jill has the ability to make the reader really feel the story. She also has a way of making bible stories come to life while keeping true to the biblical account.

I think her books are a must read for not only the Christian fiction lover, but for anyone who wants to read a really interesting historical story.

What I loved about Michal was that Jill really brought her to life for me so I could see her hopes ,dreams and short comings. I liked the way Jill told this story without changing the biblical account but rather adding personality and experiences to each character to give them life and make them feel more real to me.

As a result I really want to read all of her stories and I do have a few I got off amazon. If you love a good historical story from biblical times you will love Michal and all the other books in the series the wives of king David.

sometimes amazon offers these books free For kindle. I received 3 of Jill's books free in the passed year so look out for them if you have a kindle. I am always face booking books I find free for Kindle on amazon so if you follow me you will see these as I find them. A member of @NescafeUSA Tasters

Somnapure Natural sleep aid from Peak-life

As anyone who know me ,Know I have trouble falling asleep, I tend to think about all kinds of stuff at bedtime and my mind races a lot. I also have trouble sometimes with my legs being restless and the other symptoms of menopause that causes me to not be able to sleep well. I have always had difficulty falling asleep and I have tried many different herbals for it. I was recently able to try Somnapure Natural Sleep aid, I really like it! it helps me fall asleep fast, and I do not do to much waking up in the middle of the night.

Somnapure is natural and contains a lot of herbals that help with sleep, I really like that the size of the coated tablets are not to big for me as I have some trouble with big pills.

SomnaPure uses a combination of Valerian extract, Lemon Balm. L-Theanine ( an amino acid) Hops,Chamomile, passion flower and melatonin to help you fall asleep fast and stay asleep. Unlike some Rx products or even OTC sleeping pills you will not have the grogginess that can make it harder to start your day. Somnapure is formulated to help you sleep and wake up refreshed and ready to start the day.

I know that sometimes products that contain Valerian can be really stinky but I did not find this to be the case with these coated tablets. This make them easier to take because they have a very lite herbal scent but their is nothing stinky about them. Also the Natural ingredients in Somnapure are non-habit forming, so you do not have to worry about that at all.

using Somnapure provided me with a restful sleep that was quickly achieved and no groggy side effects, I really like it. So if you are looking for a sleep aid that's effective and easy to take I hope you give Somnapure a try. The really nice thing is, its available at a number of retailers such as CVS, Amazon ,GNC, drugstore com and at the Peak Life website. You can find more info about Somnapure at their website and you can follow them on twitter. I also did a video review for this product which I hope you have a look at. Here are some links for you and below that my video review for this really innovative natural sleep aid. Thanks for looking.

Firmoo Global Online Optical store Review

I was able to try a pair of RX glasses recently through Firmoo and I wanted to tell you all about them because they are really fantastic glasses. I have to wear glasses to see distance and I really hate contacts so I am always looking for really pretty frames. I found this wonderful pair at Frimoo they are called Woman’s Full Frame Titanium Eyeglasses. These are so pretty with a semi rimless frame and lovely detail on the sides.

I hope you get a chance to have a look at the video review I did so you can see how nice these fit me and how pretty they are. The things I really loved about them were that my RX was perfectly done, they were made quickly and I had no problems with the at all. I took them out of the package and put them on and I could see perfectly. This particular set of frames are very light weight, so I hardly know I am wearing them.

This is a real plus because heavy frames weigh down my face and I do not need any extra things doing this as gravity is doing a nice job of that by its self. I do not get those pressure points around the nose pieces and I cant tell you how much I love this.

Its very easy to order from Frimoo all you do is pick out a frame and than scan your RX or as in my case I typed it in. Your glasses will arrive ready to wear in a few weeks.

With using Firmoo there is no standing in line or spending time away from home trying on frames you can pick the out from the comfort of home with 100s of styles to choose from. I really love my Firmoo glasses and am so happy I got to try them they are my new favorite pair of daily wear glasses and so light and pretty.

I hope you have a look at the video so you can see them in action, this pair was priced at 45.00 . Thanks for looking at my review. Please visit Frimoo at the link below and start looking for your next pair of really great glasses from the many choice frames they have available. Frimoo Global online optical store

Vaseline Total Moisture review

I recently got the chance to become re-acquainted with Vaseline and the new and improved total moisture they have out now.

I have to say I think this product can really stand up to the higher end products I am use to using. I do like a lot of more expensive lotions because I always beleived they worked better, but, now that I really got to try Vaseline Total Moisture, I think I will be using is a lot more.

This product made my skin really soft very quickly and it smelled better than some BBW I have been using. I am picky about scent and I was blown away by how fresh it smelled , I really love it! So bottom line is for price, moisturizing ability and scent Vaseline Total Moisture is at the top of my list. thanks for reading my review.

Oscar Blandi pronto heat styling spray for hair review

I was wanting to get a product that would really do a good job at protecting my hair from all the heat damage I inflict upon it daily . I looked around and found this Ocsar Blandi heat protecting spray through Fab. It was on a deal and I had some Fab credits so I thought I would give it a try.

The one thing I really wanted was a spray that smelled nice did not weigh my hair down and provided a nice shine when using my flat iron. I found all of these things in this Oscar Blandi product!

I really love this and now just cant be without it, it will make your styling go quickly and be done the first time.

I liked it so much I did a video review for it which I am embedding here. Since I way better at expressing myself through video I'm sure you will get the idea about how much I really love this product and will be recommending it to all my friends for Superior heat styling pronto. I did not get a sample of this but rather paid for it and will continue to do so its really that good!

Zevia All Natural sodas Review

I was able to try Zevia all natural soda's recently and I wanted to do a blog post and video review about them because they are really just sooo good.

Zevia natural Soda's, are just that all natural and they use the sweeter Stevia. Stevia is a natural sweetener that's been used as a sugar substitute for a while now and has been found to be much better for you and your children than artificial sweeteners such as aspartame.

My friends and family and I have tried some of the many different flavors that Zevia comes in and found them to be very satisfying and tasty. I love the natural flavor of the grape and black cherry and really love that it has a very low sodium content.

One of the things we all try and avoid for our children and family is to much sugar, but sodium is also a very harmful substance when getting to much of it and soda's are notoriously high is sodium. Zevia is a very good tasting soda that contains no calories no fat are gluten free and are totally free of the bad things that most of us worry about when choosing a soda for our Kids and grand kids.

I don't know about you but if my grandchildren get to much sugar they become more crabby and hyper. Using Zevia in place of conventional soda's can not only illuminate the extra sugar the kids will love them because they do not have that nasty artificial sweetener after taste that's so prevalent in regular soft drinks.

My family and friends were totally impressed by Zevia for quality,taste. They all think it is very innovative and a great choice for a healthy alternative to regular soda's.

The bottom line is Zevia can help you by providing a superior tasting soda that's free from all the bad stuff we need to be concerned with as Grandmothers and Moms. I hope you get a chance to have a look at my video review included in the review. Zevia is available at a lot of different health food stores, I also hear that Super Target may soon have it available which is really good news because it will be a lot easier to find. I do not live near a lot of these smaller health food stores so it will really be nice to see Zevia at bigger stores that are easy to get to for me. I sure hope you check out the Zevia website where you can see all the in depth info about it and how its made and all the great reasons to choose Zevia over conventional soda's. Thanks for looking at my review. You can lean more about Zevia here

I was able to try a number of flavors with my family and friends that were provided by Moms meet ambassadors program and Zevia but my opinions are my own I really love this awesome soda.

Vaccines for Adults: What You Should Know

I have joined the Adult Immunization movement so help spread the word about just how important it is for adults to get Immunized as well as children. As an adult especilly if you are 50 and over, because as we get older our ability to fight disease like pertussis is decreased.

Its also very important to get flu shots and other vaccines to keep you healthy while you age.

WebMd and Pfizer have teamed up to spread this very important message. They have a very informative video on the WebMd site that will answer all your question on this topic.

If you have are immune system compromised like my husband is, because of a thyroid condition, I can't stress enough the importance of getting the proper vaccines to help you maintain your health.

Also if you have a lung problem such as COPD or other illnesses you need these vaccines to keep from getting things like pertussis which can really be a problem as we get older.

The Adult Immunization movement, is commented to getting people the proper vaccines they need to have a healthy lifestyle. The information on the WebMd site is invaluable to helping you learn what you need to do. With that being said I hope you all will go over to the WebMd site and view the video and read the information you can find it here. WebMd adult vaccination content center
I incourage you to have a look at this information so that you can be informed about the vaccines you may need to stay healthy and be well. Thanks for looking
