Primped with this August Edition of BeautyBox5 : Review

I got busy for the past two weeks that I wasn't able to do any of the reviews that I have lined up for this month.  I love what's in the Beauty Box 5 this month.  It has printed nail pile with case, long wear eyeliner pen, Hot stuff go pop compact, moisturizer, and my favorite is the  deep conditioning hair treatment,  
 I have used  this pur lisse  moist hydra balance moisturizer before when we had our road trip a couple of months ago and  I loved it.  It's one of my favorite brands of moisturizer to take when  traveling because it is soothing and hydrating.  This anti aging moisturizer uses pl[ant extracts and Vitamin E which  surely give you a sensitive -skin-approved glow.  When you go on a long road trip and you want a refreshed skin at the end of the day, this moisturizer will give you that.
 Lately, my daughter has been obsessed in painting her nails.  It's her way of avoiding to  bute her nails.  It became  a habit  that we are taking steps into breaking that biting of nails because it is not a really good  habit.  This nail pile comes in handy when she cleans her nails.
I haven't tell anyone this but my hair is getting thinner and thinner each  passing day.  It began alling  when I had my son, I mean it is not  so bad but I am worried that  one day, I will be bald. I used to have a very thick hair when I was younger.  My Mama used to condition it with  coconut milk once in a while which I really loveSo this coconut oil  reminds me of Mama.  I used this  conditioner twice already and love the  result.  It makes my hair so soft  and it eliminates hair tangles which is good.   
 This waterproof, starloks luxe longwear eyeliner  pen in plum  will go in the box that I will be sending for my sister.  She is  working as an office secretary in  school where I formerly work so I will send her some goodies.  I am sure she would like this , she knows make  and stuff more than me.
 I don't wear make up so I will be sending this to my sister as well.  I love the shades  ubn this Jerome Alexander  Hot Stuff Go Pop Compacts.  It has a protective cse so I am sure this will be alright to ship.   What I like about this one is, it has two brushes.  You can use one on one side and use the other on the other shades.

Custom Rose Gold Initial Name Ring with Pearl Birthstone

I love custimized things so when I saw Name Stylish online, I thought it would be nice to have a ring with my  name initial in it. I have a necklace with a pendant  that has an initial R in it and thought that this would surely match it.  So I was ecstatic when  I contacted them and  they agreed to work with me.  I sumitted my order and few weeks later, I thought of checking out  the status of my  order and to my dismay, I have mistyped my righ size, ugh. Instead of 7 1/2, I wrote 9 1/2 which is a bummer.
I contacted them and told them about the size but it was too late, the ring was already made and  on its way.  
Name Stylish sent me this customized Rose Gold  initial name ring with my birthstone, Pearl.  June has two birthstones (Pearl and Alexandrite) so I asked them if they have the latter but unfgfortunately, they don't have.
The photos I took doesn't really give the ring  a justice but it is a beautiful ring.  I showed my husband  this and he tried it on inhis finger and it fits perfectly on him, lol.  Anyway, you can check it out and browse their beautiful pieces.

Lilla Rose Flexi Clip

A couple of years ago, I had one of the Lilla Rose's Flexi clips.  My daughter love the  Spring bouquet design that I chose for her long hair. She still uses it with her long and thick hair.   I usually  put this on her hair during recitals, it is a very beautiful hair accessory  to have if you have a long hair.
I am glad to have another  flexi clip and this time, it is for my hair.  So now, we both have  our own  flexi clips from Lilla Rose and we love sporting it when dressing up on Sundays for church.
I chose this Daisy flower design as I have  bought a top that has a similar color to this so it would be perfect to  accessorise my hair when I wear it.  One flexi clip like this cost $16 which seem a little expensive but I guarantee that you will get the worth of every dime you spent on this one as they are well made with high quality materials.  
I love how summer it is and it's fun to  wear it as an added color  especially if you are wearing a black color outfit.
When ordering, the sizing is SO important so make  sure to watch sizing and styling video guide so you can buy the perfect size  size for the style that  you'd like to do and  be completely happy with your flexi.  But if by chance ordered  the wrong size, Lilla Rose will gladly exchange their flexi for free within 90 days. There is also a one-year guarantee on defective items.
All NEW customers will receive a FREE flexi when you  spend $40 or more!  Offer valid for U.S. customers only and expires 30 days from date of the purchase. Customer's choice of item up to $16 in value.  This offer is from Rebekah's website, my contact so if you buy and qualify for the  free item, contact her from her website.

Why Getting a Dog Could Be Wonderful for Your Family

If you have children, and a busy household, you may wonder whether adding a pet into the mix may just make things even more hectic. However, getting a dog can really help your family bond and pull together, as well as giving your children a fun new playmate they can spend time with, and form happy memories with that will last a lifetime.
If your kids have been pestering you to let them have a dog, here are some of the reasons why bringing home a puppy could be a great idea!

Dogs Are Great Company

If you find your child or children need constant attention and will never seem to just play quietly on their own, a dog can give them some company and may well stop them hassling you when you are trying to get things done! A dog can be a really good friend for a child, especially for older children who can take the dog out with them when they go out by themselves to the shops or to the park. A dog can also be great company for you – when the kids are in bed you can hang out with your new pet and relax!

Looking After a Pet Teaches Kids Responsibility

Children can learn a lot from owning a dog. As well as learning about how to treat animals with respect, they can also learn how to take care of an animal that needs regular feeding, exercise and grooming. Depending on how old your child is, they can have different levels of responsibility for looking after the dog, with older children able to walk the dog by themselves, bath him and feed him, and younger kids learning by helping with these things. Puppies can offer an even better learning experience, as your child can see what goes into training a dog to be a good pet, and will learn all about animal psychology and how the way that you reward your pet affects his behavior.

A Dog Means More Exercise for All the Family!

Whether you get a rescue dog or a dog of a breed you choose from a breeder you can find on sites like your pet will need lots of exercise – some breeds of dog need to run or walk for miles every day (though if you let them off the leash to run around you don't necessarily have to cover the same distance yourself!). This will mean that your family will have a reason to stay active in all seasons, and will not be able to skip on exercise just because they don't feel like it – after all, the dog needs it!

Getting a dog can help your family stay healthy and in shape, can teach your kids all kinds of things, and can also make for a great companion that will always be there for you. Why not talk with your family about getting a puppy or an older dog now?
