Homemade Air Spray Freshener by Abby

Image
By Abby F.

We all know the power of smells and scents. Aromatherapy is one of the best ways to relieve stress, for example, but nice smells can bring up many emotions and feelings in a person. And of course we all love the natural smells, such as freshly cut grass, cherry blossoms, roses, lilac, the forest after the rain, etc. That is why we all buy air fresheners for our homes, to make our homes smell that good and fresh, and also to cover up other smells, like cooking fumes.

The sad part about all of it though, is that the air fresheners we are used to buying from the stores are full with chemicals. And even if they fulfill their purpose and make our homes smell amazing, sometimes they come with the price of our health. Because they release a lot of chemicals in the air we breathe.

If you are an air spray freshener aficionado and wish your home would always smell great, but you do not want to keep breathing chemicals, this article will give you an alternative. Here you can find out…

MAKE Beauty

Image
We all see so many advertisements for beauty products that are bigger, bolder and better than what we already have stockpiled in our bathrooms or makeup bags. So what is different, I mean REALLY different, about MAKE?
MAKE Beauty goes beyond the outer facade we all carry around with us. They believe that there are no beauty rules and that it is beautiful to be inspired by your own imagination, not just what you are shown or what others do. To be outspoken, confident, intelligent and un-self conscious. Imagine how great it is to feel that way?
There products are also hypoallergenic, they contain NO parabens and are NEVER tested on animals. Made in the USA, proudly, in NYC. 
Aside from the wonderful beauty products they also carry films, books and music to promote a well-being from the inside out. I have honestly never found that in a beauty company in the past and was very impressed with the selection. Check it out for yourself at makebeauty.com
With a great selection of makeup, skinc…

I Will Follow Jesus by Judah and Chelsea Smith

Image
I Will Follow Jesus by Judah and Chelsea Smith is a beautifully illustrated children's Bible Storybook. It contains easy to read and understand stories from the New and Old Testaments including some of the most popular like Noah and the Ark, Daniel and the Lion's Den and the Story of Jesus's death and resurrection.

Judah and Chelsea Smith take the stories from the Bible and re-write them into an easy to understand and an easy to follow format that is much easier for children to understand. They include the point of reference's from the Bible, i.e. the scripture reference, so you can go back and read the full story if you wish. At the end of each section/story they include and I Will Follow Jesus page with a short overview of the story just read and a small prayer for kids.

I enjoy this for Benjamin because it is so simple to understand and much more in-depth than some of the story book Bible's I have gotten in the past. The illustrations are eye catching and fun fo…

Hunters In The Dark by Lawrence Osborne

Image
Hunters In The Dark by Lawrence Osborne is an intellectually written masterpiece that will suck you in right up until the end. This novel started off slowly with an amazing set up of descriptions for the setting of the book. What I found quite intriguing was the fact that Lawrence Osborne actually lives in Bangkok, which is where part of the book takes place. 
The novel tells the story of Robert, a simple and quite boring school teacher who takes his summer vacation by traveling to different parts of the world. He runs into a bit of luck in the beginning which ultimately changes his whole life. He creates himself into being an anything but boring person. I think my favorite part was the end, but I will not put in any spoilers. This was a terrific read and I will happily read this novel again. 
I love books that have real historical and geographical references and this novel carries both. Lawrence Osborne has an amazing work within these pages describing different places in Cambodia an…
