Marvel Avengers Captain America" Civil War" Boys Large Backpack


***My Personal Review***

This came at just the right time - my daughter had ripped her old backpack and we replaced it with Captain America. This is a full-sized backpack with just the large zippered pocket. The image on the front is awesome and smooth, it has the A for Avengers and Captain America and Iron Man fighting. Perfect for any comics fan. The rest of the backpack is blue and red - it's very cool. The bag itself is large enough for most any school aged kid and they would be pretty excited with it.

Essential Oils & Aromatherapy - eBook


***My Personal Review***

I have recently started delving into essential oils and trying to see what works for me and what doesn't.  My daughter suffers from anxiety and ADHD and I suffer with terrible anxiety.  So hearing that essential oils have worked for a lot of people made me think about it.  This book is a handbook for essential oils and it helps you choose what oils might be right for your ailments.  It starts with an overview of essential oils and then moves onto the benefits and a how-to for using oils together.  I found it pretty good and helped me learn about some oils I had never even heard of.  Overall a great reference!

My Junior Year of Loathing by Jennifer DiGiovanni

Junior year is supposed to be tough. Exams, term papers, homework, college tours, and participation in extra-curricular activities can all add up to non-stop stress. But Melinda Banner has goals to achieve and dreams to make real. This year, she’ll be unstoppable. But even over achievers need a break.
While walking in the woods to take a break from the stress of it all, Melinda meets a boy named Connor. After a few more run-ins, the two settle into an uneasy friendship, if you can even call it that.
But Connor's closed and mysterious. Whenever Melinda asks too many questions, he suddenly has to go or is no longer interested in talking. When they’re together, she’s torn between wanting him to open up and running away as fast as she can. Still she can't seem to shake her budding interest in him.
Connor has his own way of looking at the world, and his views often conflict with Melinda’s practical nature. Can you like someone and loathe them at the same time? Is he even worth the emotional tug on her heartstrings or distraction from all things Junior year?
And, as if she needs another project right now, Melinda starts to obsess over the abandoned estate she passes on the way to school each day. Between Connor and the old estate, Melinda's beginning to think she's taking on too much.
But Melinda's smart. She finds a way to indulge her interest in the estate and fulfill her obligations. She will uncover the truth behind the aging edifice for an epic article in the school newspaper.
But when her investigation reveals a connection between Connor and a tragedy long-since forgotten, Melinda has a choice: put off her junior year achievements to save a local landmark and a boy who constantly pushes her away or put them both out of her mind for good and focus on making the grade.

THE GIRL IN THE RED HOOD has been looking for her mother for six months, searching from the depths of New York’s subways to the heights of its skyscrapers...
THE PRINCE looks like he’s from another time entirely, or maybe he’s just too good at his job at Ye Old Renaissance Faire . . . THE ACTRESS is lighting up Hollywood Boulevard with her spellbinding and strikingly convincing portrayal of a famous fairy. Her name may be big, but her secrets barely fit in one world . . . Fifteen-year-old Crescenzo never would have believed his father’s carvings were anything more than “stupid toys.” All he knows is a boring life in an ordinary Virginia suburb, from which his mother and his best friend have been missing for years. When his father disappears next, all Crescenzo has left is his goofy neighbor, Pietro, who believes he’s really Peter Pan and that Crescenzo is the son of Pinocchio. What’s more: Pietro insists that they can find their loved ones by looking to the strange collection of wooden figurines Crescenzo’s father left behind. With Pietro’s help, Crescenzo sets off on an adventure to unite the real life counterparts to his figurines. It’s enough of a shock that they’re actually real, but the night he meets the Girl in the Red Hood, dark truths burst from the past. Suddenly, Crescenzo is tangled in a nightmare where magic mirrors and evil queens rule, and where everyone he loves is running out of time.

Blue Laundry Hamper

Blue Laundry Hamper


***My Personal Review***

I really love this hamper - I have been needing a large size hamper for towels and clothing for a long time to keep them off of the floor and just make the room look better.  This is great because I can keep it in the bathroom and then pick it up and carry it to the laundry room a few times a week.  I love the pattern and colors, and the mesh top is very nice because it can be closed but still allow air to flow through so you don't get mold.  And the best part is that when you aren't using it, the hamper can fold up into the size of a thin round disk.  Really great product and I am using it all the time!

Pink Laundry Hamper - Medium

Pink Laundry Hamper - Medium

***My Personal Review***

This is a nice sized hamper for towels or clothes or even toy storage.  It's pink and says "Laundry" on the front - it also has 2 handles on the sides for easy carrying.  The top has a zipper closure to keep what is in the hamper private.  I like the fabric it's made out of - it's sturdy and holds about 4 days worth of towels for me and my daughter which is great because it keeps them off the floor.  The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the fabric can get pretty wet and soak through.  Otherwise I think it's great!

Bleeding Hearts by Dana Louise Provo Blog Tour with Excerpts and Giveaway!

Bleeding Hearts (Book #1)
by Dana Louise Provo
Publication Date: August 25, 2016
Publisher: Clean Reads

Orphaned at an early age, now twenty-four-year-old Camryn Lucks is ready to commit to find that special someone, and so accepts a date from a charming, gallant, handsome stranger. The last thing she imagines after accepting that first date with Carson would actually be the beginning of her worst nightmare.

Red roses, a reminder of her parents' killer, soon become an emblem of horror for Cami as one by one, those closest to her fall victim to a serial killer. Cami becomes an obsession for Carson, the man she had finally allowed herself to love. Not only is he vying for her heart, but also her life.

Finding herself in a whirlwind of torments shadowed by the blood-colored bloom, Cami finds solace in Isaac, a neighboring police officer. She’s desperate to escape the haunting memories, but she must revisit them in order to catch her would-be killer. Living life in constant fear has driven Cami to second-guess every choice she makes. Will the police catch the illusive murderer, or will Cami be forced to face him once again?
