Kudo Knife A fantastic gift for Fathers Day Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Welcome to my review for the really wonderful Kudo Knife. This is a folding pocket Knife and I got to try one free to do this review. This is an extremely sharp knife as I will tell you in the video review.

Not only is the the sharpest knife I have seen its made by cold steal and has a very unique locking mechanism. The Blade will lock open so you never have to worry about the knife coming back on your hand while you cut in any direction. You need to read the instructions that come with the knife because it is really very different.

Cold Steel is the company that makes this knife, what they wanted to do is make an affordable quality South Africa,ring lock folder. they have tested the ring lock and made it so its much better but less expensive than its counterparts in other countries.

Personally I think this knife would make for a really great Fathers Day gift. I like everything about it and your Husband or dad will love how sharp it is and you will have the peace of mind knowing that when they use it it will not fold back on them no matter what they are cutting or how they use it.

This knife was made to last and is very well constructed. its also really pretty and has a nice engraving of a deer on the blade. the knife measures,

Blade: 4 1/4" Overall: 10" Thick: 2mm Weight: 2.4 oz

I know any father or husband would love to get this knife this fathers day so I hope you think about getting one for the men in your life. My dad really loves it and that's saying something because he is not easily impressed.

You can find it here to buy Buy Kudu Knife here

I did a video review for this so you could see quality and how big it is and such so I hope you have a look at that video below thanks for looking :)

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

ThredUp My new tops are fantastic Review

Welcome to my second review for ThredUp I got some very nice things this time as well and I just could not resist doing 2 short video reviews for my favorites . In case you missed out on the last blog posts I did for ThredUp I thought I would tell you all about them.

First things first ThredUp is a fantastic on line clothing store that has designer brands. These items are previously owned and inspected for the slightest flaw. They do tell you if an Item has any flaw so you can make an informed decision. I got a whole bunch of tops from them this time because its what I am really short on. I loved everything but only had the time to do 2 reviews on my 2 favorites .

Please keep in mind that you can also order a clean out bag, you can fill the bag with the items in your closet that you do not fit in anymore or did not really like after buying them. ThredUp will than buy them from you, if its something they want... if not they will donate the clothing to a charity so its really a win win.

ThredUp also has the option to send you back the items they cant use just in case you are wanting them back this option will coast for shipping them back to you .

I can offer you a 10.00 off 10.00 for you first purchase on ThredUp and with some items costing only 3.99 you can get more than one in some cases.

As an example I just got a like new pair of shoes for 6.99, I cant wait to get them in.

ThredUp has tops,dresses,shoes,pants and skirts. They have a lot to choose from and I always find something really great there. So here is the link that will give you 10.00 off 10.00 THREAD UP website

Here is a photo of what I ordered and will come in soon I just love the look of this light weight sweater. It is a Lauren Active By Ralph Lauren Pullover Sweater. This one cost me 14.49 and will be perfect for Florida

Here is a still shot of me wearing the Ann Taylor Loft sweater from the video.

Now here are the video reviews I did . The first one is for a Ann Taylor Loft light sweater with blue bead work and the second one is for a company called prototype its a really nice summer top . thanks for looking :)

Life and Food Green coffee bean Gold review and giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Welcome to my review for Life and Food Green coffee bean Gold. This is a really great product in the way of green coffee bean. I take green coffee bean everyday to aid me in loosing weight. I have been using green coffee bean for 2 years not and this one has a really effective formula that can help you with weight loss, give you antioxidants and balance blood sugar.

What I love about Life and Food Green coffee bean Gold is it provides you with 600 mg of 50% chlorogenic acid extract, and 200 mg of SVETOL at 45% chlorogenic acid standardization. This makes it very effective. The reason I use Green coffee bean is because after 2 years I really think it helps break down that unsightly fat that is under the skin and so hard to get rid of. it dose not make me gittery and I believe it helps curb my appetite which has been a bit out of control lately. Green Coffee bean really boosts my energy level as well which is good for me since Im not getting any younger.

I also like its in easy to take capsules and I take it in the morning with my other supplements. This product works hard of increase you metabolism and burn fat in a more natural health way. I did not have any problem taking Life and Food Green coffee bean Gold. You can take it up to 2 times a day with plenty of water about 30 mins before having a meal.

This bottle I am showing you in the video review is a months supply when taken one a day you get 60 pills in each bottle . I have used different brand name Green coffee bean products and I think this one is very effective and easy to take. All that being said be sure you check with your doctor to be sure you can use it. I would not be without it and am very happy I got to try this brand .

You can find it on amazon at this link

KMS California Hair Stay Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Welcome to my review for the KMS California Hair Stay product I got to try. The company sent me a free sample so I could try it and tell you all about it. This is a really great Hair styling product. its like a freeze but without the stiffness, it has maximum hold and sprays out in a fine mist thats so easy to control and use.

I am always looking for a great holding hairspray because living in Florida on the coast its not only breezy but very humid all the time. The one thing I hate about a maximum hold spray is how long they take to dry. Once I get my hair style right I want to spray it and go, I can do this with the KMS California Hair Stay because it drys right away. Their is no sitting around trying to keep still waiting for the spray to dry and set. This is really the fastest drying hair spray I have ever used and I have used a whole lot of them.

KMS California Hair Stay, also has technology in it to keep humidity from frizzing up the hair which is great for me because my hair is so naturally frizzy. I really love this spray and will continue to use it. it is leaps and bounds better than what I was using and my hair feels great and has bounce but stays in place. I hope you give it a try.

You can find it to buy it here Beauty Care Choices

I did a video review for this one so you can see packaging and just how nice it looks on my hair thanks for reading my review

I am able to host a giveaway so one person will win the spray I got to try USA only entries ends 4/24/14 enter through the raffle copter below

Through the Deep waters by Kim Vogel Sawyer book review

I was able to read Through the Deep waters by Kim Vogel Sawyer, through blogging for books. I think this is my favorite book by this writer . I have read many books By Kim Vogel Sawyer but this one was just a perfect Christian fiction that was both inspirational and entertaining.

This is the story of a young woman named Dinah, she was raised in a Chicago brothel and is the daughter of a prostitute. Her dream is to become a Harvey Girl waiting tables along the railroad. She longs for the respectability that comes with this position because Harvey Girls are required to be hardworking and pure.

I really loved the development of Dinah in this story, she is a girl that was never told anything about God or Christ and as she tries her best to fit into a new lifestyle, she is not sure she will ever be worthy of being a Harvey Girl . Since she is only 17 and she Must be 18 to be selected as Harvey Girl she takes a job as a maid at a hotel. Here she find people who want to be her friend but she is so fearful they will discover her past that she deliberately keeps her distance.

Dinah has a terrible secret, If anyone should find out about it she would loose her dream of becoming a Harvey Girl and any possibility of a home and family.

This book has everything a Christian fiction story should have in it . I am so happy I got to read it and have it for my library. Thanks for reading my review.

Thred Up a Fantastic Name Brand Used Clothing Store With great prices #thredup review

Welcome to my personal review for a new way to buy designer/ name brand fashion on the cheap. This New Online store is called THRED UP
and it is a place where you can buy some really nice used clothing for less.

I came across this recently because I signed up for their mailing list and got a 10.00 off a first purchase coupon. I thought I would give it a try and see what I got. I was able to find 7 beautiful items and apply my 10.00 off coupon along with free shipping on orders over 50.00. My final total was less than 43.00.

I just got all of them in today and thought I would unpack the box with photos and select a few items to do video review for. I am really not use to doing a stand up video so please ignore the look of sheer terror I have on my face LOL.

I really love the items I got!!! Since gaining a bit of weight, I have not been able to really wear my nicer things lately so I went shopping for something to wear that would look nice but not cost me a fortune.

I am doing this review so you can see quality and how packaging is done and how the items look on me. This way you can make an informed decision about buying from the company or maybe even selling some of your nicer things.

The other great thing about THRED UP
is you can also send them your used clothing and they will look them over and if its something they buy they will put them up so someone else can buy them. If you do send things be sure they are items that the company will buy because other wise they will be donated or recycled. If you want your items back you would have to pay for return shipping, so keep that in mind. You dont have to do anything but pack up a bag they send you and than wait to see how much they will pay for them.

Does have a tool so you can see what your items may be worth, so be sure and check that out first.

I really had fun looking at all the items that are for sale at very good prices and now they have a collection of even higher end items available . You can get shoes, dresses, tops and just about anything there, its a really great way to get some pretty things without spending to much. When you see the quality of the Items I bought you will agree.

One of the other reasons I am posting this review is because I do know how hard it is to find acceptable work wear when you are on a budget. I thought this would be great for someone like me who wants to look nice and have name brand clothing yet does not have a boat load of cash to put into it.

Anyway here are the pictures of what I bought and some videos of me wearing some of the items so you can see just how nice these are.

This above photo is the box my items came in

This is the top layer of the items

This is the next Layer

And Next

This photo is of the last casual shirt I got its really silky so I pit it on the lid of the box so you could see detail.

OK, now I did a few videos wearing some of my favorites in this box the first is a Courtenay blazer. I paid 8.49 for it. Please try and put up with me I am not use to doing video standing up and with what I have to work with this is the best I could do. I have to admit I was a bit nervous doing these but I really wanted you to see them.

In This video I am wearing a Kim Rogers Henley shirt it is like new and just right for me. This one cost me 6.49

This video is for a Liz Claiborne Golf Cardigan This one cost a whopping (lol) 5.49 it is in perfect condition.

Here is a copy of my packing slip for this order I sure hope you can see the fantastic low prices I paid for these items thanks for looking at my review:)

InstaNatural Skin Brightening Serum Review

The Storm Inside by Sheila Walsh book review

As a member of Booklook Bloggers I was sent a copy of the book to review. This is titled The Storm Inside Trade the Chaos of How You Feel for the Truth of Who You Are by Sheila Walsh.

I really loved this book I love Sheila's writing style which makes this book really easy to study. This book is packed with insightful biblical teaching, intimate stories of her own, which make it a wonderful study book for youself or for a group.

All of us have moments in our Christian walk that are filled with Chaos, guilt or fear. I know I have a whole lot of problem with fear as I worry even though I know I should not. Sheila's book really helped me to get past some of my worry and guilt and remember that through anything Christ is with me.

No one is perfect and sometimes we feel the shame of our lack of faith or the things we feal. this book helps you get past feelings and focus on God and what he can do to help you feel more free and loved.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a great study book that you can really learn from, from someone who has been there and who feels the same way that you do. I am so happy I got to read it its very comprehensive and will help you find the strength to face the Chaos that life sometimes hits us with.

This would be a great choice for your next book club or group study program. Thanks for reading my review

I review for BookLook Bloggers
