Lola: A NovelTo order your copy <-- Click here


I received this book from blogging for books, to be honest I don't know if I would have picked this up at the bookstore as I am more of the damsel in distress kind of reader. However I felt that this book really showed the weak and the strong side of Lola who was a powerful woman among a uncertain world of crime, gangs and troubles. There were some editing problems but to be honest because of my background (my dad owned a printing company among other things) I have read lots of books even after editing that had many errors so I really don't worry about such things but I know this was something that was addressed by other readers and my heart is always I would rather read a ARC anyday and get as close as possible to the author's heart then to be polished. Hold on to your seat and fast paced. I felt like this is the kind of book to read late at night with a big bowl of popcorn or when the husband takes the kids out for the afternoon. A great  read all at once fun read! I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

I get super bored with the same hair color day after day, but don't want to damage my hair. Hair Flash Color is the answer to my "hair fashion needs" It is super easy to use cover your shoulders spray on and it lasts until you wash it out. I received the red copper and golden blonde to try.  You can do your whole head or do multiple colors. If you are in need of a dye job you can cover your roots even. I love both colors  and how easy they are to use. It only took me a few minutes to get a new look. What I really love about this product is that it is that it actually makes my hair better as it offers hair care for my hair. I suggest that you take a few minutes to look around their site (click on link above) I think you are going to fall in love with all they have to offer. I'm sold!

I started getting the bug for WWII stories when I read a book by Corrie Ten Boom The Hiding Place as a kid. Growing up in America as a all german girl, my mom has told me stories of being a child during this horrible season in our World History. She told me once as a child her mom told her she was going to go some place special and for a whole week she was terrified they were going to take her away with all the children. She actually was going to go to a Birthday party for her best friend! Momma also told me how they would have to have all the lights out in the town and how her father and even my Dad as a kid would ride around the town to make sure everyone was inside. My great Uncles 6 all went to fight as Germans from the USA the Nazi's and all miraculously came home.  I absolutely loved this book The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman set in Poland during World War II. A true story of when the Nazi's invaded Poland and took over the Zoo. Ruthless to the animals and carrying some away to create the perfect specimen. The Zookeepers hide Jewish people in the Zoo and in the cages. I couldn't put this down. I love reading the courageous stories of how people would help protect the Jewish families during WWII. A wonderful read. I highly recommend this book. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Once summer hits it seems like I am in the shower a lot more - after swimming or working in the yard and then of course my daily shower. The wonderful thing about this is the  NEW Soft Soap Limited Edition Blushing Bouqet and Eternal Bloom body washes.  I love the light fragrance of flowers and the hint of fruit these give off. The formula keeps my skin soft and fresh. Everytime I know I am getting into the shower I get so excited because it feels like I am going to the spa and it is the highlight of my day! I did receive these for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Repel Easy Touch Umbrella DuPont Teflon Travel Umbrella, Black











I love being outdoors and the rain doesn't stop me. I love to walk as well as work in my yard on my little farm. It was a priviledge to review the repel umbrella for this review - especially such it is raining a few times a week now that it is Spring. There is nothing worse than having to walk in the rain to a bus or to keep a newborn baby covered and having a lousy umbrella. The Repel umbrella is wonderful. Wind defying 9 rib constructions (most have 6-8) which stops it from turning inside out. Quaility workmandship- strong metal shaft, automatic, compact and super light easily opens and shuts. Lifetime guarantee and now for the best part to top it off WATER REPELLENCY.. This umbrella repels water because off the Dupont Teflon technology. I noticed that when I brought it out in the rain it worked great and the water didn't want to stick to it. It also looks nice. I highly recommend this umbrella I give it a 5 out of 5 stars. I did receive this umbrella for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

This book to me was as a fine wine to be sipped and read at the pace the author set out as the story unfolds. I found it brilliant. Lily moves with her husband to a new apartment that gives a view of the building that is set to be demolished. Aiden, her husband is busy writing engrossed in his work this leaves Lily with not much to do besides her watching, and watching the neighbors. One day it happened as Lily was peering through her binoculars she spies a murder. Her elderly neighbor Jean is dead. No spoilers here except for this.. Who is watching who? Now Lily's life is in danger. Written in first person with a style that makes you just drink in your reading. If you love mysteries and suspense you will love this. Be prepared this is written in first person one of the reasons I truly loved this! I did receive this for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

I recently heard of all the good things that rose water can do for you. Leven Rose has a wonderful product The Gold Rose Water. It can be used as a toner to balance the ph balance on your face and even on your scalp before or during a shampoo. I immediately opened the product for review and washed my face to try it as a toner. After washing my face I sprayed a small amount on a cotton ball and I absolutely loved how it made my face feel. I have heard others say this product made their face feel super soft and some even said that it strengthened their hair ! It felt really nice and the smell of roses was beautiful from the bottle but it wasn't noticeable on my face. I love natural products and this one is definitely a keeper! I give this product a 5 out of 5 stars. This was received for review purposes for my honest review and no monies were exchanged.

Photo   I have always been a reader. I remember going on vacation to visit my grandparents and packing tons of books. Reading is one thing that my mom and I have always shared. I enjoy reading about anything family friendly.
Yes, I even read children's books. We were sent 4 books for review from MacMillan Children's publishing group

Grand Canyon by Jason Chin
Science Comics Bats by Falynn Koch
Petal Power by Allan Drummond
Counting Sheep: Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet by Jacqueline Kelly. 

All of these were fun for review. Clay picked up The Science Comics Bats by Falynn Koch and I delved into the other books. One thing really nice about books for kids is that you can usually learn something. I loved reading and learning about the Grand Canyon and had a lot of fun reading Petal Power and Counting Sheep and learning from them. Excellent for homeschoolers, moms, kids, and to start your collection for summer reading. As stated above I did receive these books to share my honest review and no monies were exchanged.

I am loving the Baabuk Classic sneakers. Talk about comfort!!! 100% wool - Keeps my tootsie cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They look great and as you tell feel even better! They are lined with moisture - wicking merino wool which is great if you get hot feet. - gel cushioning in the forefront and sole and they have a nice sporty look. You can pop these in the washer if they get dirty on the washer wool cycle. I would probably air dry them as that is how I do all my sneakers to keep them nice.

When I go to the potty at night I am now greeted with a beautiful rainbow of colors in the dark from my potty. Illumibowl is a multicolor light that is super easy to hook up to your toilet to give light in the middle of the night. This is a great item for the elderly, those with small children and the whole family! I love the illuminibowl motion activated toilet night light. I don't have to have any other light in my bathroom plus when I am sleepy and reaching my way into the bathroom I don't have to switch on a bright light and can do my business and easily fall right back to sleep again. It's great because it has a long range for motion detection so as soon as I enter my bathroom it turns on. We did receive this item for review purposes and no monies were exchanged. :)

If you love space and space operas I believe you will love this book as much as I did. This is the sequel to The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet. You will travel through the galaxy with what was once the ship's artificial intelligence wakes up in a new body and discovers who she is . There is also Pepper who is helping Lovelace , Lovey and meet other space friends. I enjoyed this book although I do admit I am now wanting to read more from Becky Chambers as this story will whet your whistle for this light-hearted space opera type of writing. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Newhall Farm Ice Cider made by Eden Ice Cider




To order yours go to https://newhallfarmvt.com/



We loved reviewing the Newhall Farm Ice Cedar. Perfect as a wedding wine and for serving at dessert time or even instead of dessert.  Made with a combination of apples from New Hall Farm's apples. I rarely take a sip of alcohol so this is perfect for anyone wanting to add a little flair to a meal but want to avoid the side effects of drinking liquor.  Perfect  for a special occasion as it has a wonderful celebrating feel. I served this with cheese and crackers and slices of apples for my husband and I as a romantic dish. It has a nice crisp sweet fruity flavor. I give this a 5 out of 5 stars. We did receive this for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

We are loving the LUMIZOOM LZ250 g     Tactical Cree LED Flashlight . I hate it when I am working on something outside on our barn or on a craft project and I just can't see it. This baby is weather resistant  and has a super bright Cree LED light. It is made of aluminum and the beam is adjustable. It has a telescopic zoom and a med and high beam. Perfect for camping, farmers, crafters, and hunting! One of the main things we love about the Lumizoom LZ250 is the size it is small enough to be compact but big enough not to get lost. What we also love about this is the way the light works. It gives me the perfect lighting everytime for what ever project I am working on. We did receive this product for review purposes and no monies were exchanged we give this product a 5 out of 5 stars.

Pet House Candles Lilac Garden and Pina Colada:





We received a beautiful Wildflower candle to review. The first thing I noticed about the One Fur all Pets candle was how pretty it was. I am decorating for Spring and was so pleased to see how preciously springy the candle made me feel. The scent was wonderful. What is nice about The One fur all pets candles are they have a nice scent that helps to keep all those pet smells gone and the nice smell of the candle to remain. Living on a backyard farm I am always making sure everything smells nice with the boots coming in from the barn and Wilbur our Guinea pig living in the house... not to mention the baby chicks or other critters that may have to be in the house in an emergency. It is nice to know that when life hits I can light a candle and don't have to worry if someone pops in. I really like this brand of candles even if you don't have pets I think you will love the variety of scents and how gorgeous these are take a second and check out their site! A perfect gift to give for Easter and Mother's Day!  More about this candle...
Neutralizes animal odor
Many.. many scents to choose from (at least 15)

Long-lasting and economical

Paraffin-free and eco-friendly

Reusable glass jar

Made in the USA

At first I was insulted when I found my husband adding ketchup to a lot of foods and later I realized that he loved all things Tomato BiG TIME. One of the concerns I had with my husband was that he had Type 2 Diabetes. I am always on the hunt for better quality foods because of this. I was pleased to find out that Pittston Ketchup uses the finest ingredients and uses LESS SUGAR! Did you know that some ketchup isn't even ketchup but in other countries are considered a spice because they do not add enough Tomatoes? (look it up!) All said I love this Ketchup the taste is wonderful and the tomatoes they use are grown locally !

To be honest, I don't really follow the British Royals but for an occasional look here and there. After reading this book it has definitely made my interest in their lifestyle grow. Although The Royal Nanny by Karen Harper is a fiction, the background and research allows you to take a sneak peek into the lifestyles of the British Royal family. LaLa, as the children eventually call her is first of all employed as a under nanny and then is promoted to Head Nanny after she discovers that the Head Nanny is abusing the children. It was interesting to get the "feel" of what it must be like to be working for the Royals as well as to see the interaction between the children and the parents. The children are presented to the parents at 4 pm for Tea daily and if they get fussy they may be removed etc. To see the size of the servants quarters and to know there are private rooms. Everything is done in detail to be just so. I am looking forward to learning more about the Royal family after reading this book. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

If you love suspense and fast paced you will love reading Karen Harper's Chasing Shadows. It was a quick read for me as once I picked this baby up I had trouble putting it down. Claire Britten has a big secret that broke up her marriage. She also is a special kind of specialist for crime investigations. The characters were well developed and the story line kept moving forward making you want to turn the page for just one more page - which made this one hard to put down. There is a lot to this book for those of us who get bored easily with reads that are just "fluff". This story is one you can sink your reading teeth into and feel satisfied. After a big court case Claire hooks up with the Nick the lawyer on the other side who liked her work. A mild romance is brewing between the two of them. Meanwhile Jace, Claire's ex-husband is coming to grips with the secret that Claire revealed and is having 2nd thoughts about the hasty decision. Nick draws Claire into a unusual case which involves drones, notes, and old friendships. Jace worries about Claire's safety. I loved it! It ends on an exciting cliffhanger leading into the next book.

In farming, you really have to be a jack of all trades. Coming from a business background where I have had people help clean my house. I have learned things I never have before. In order to work beside my husband I have had to roll up my sleeves and get dirty more times than I want to admit. There are times I have worked on things in my house and just had to figure it out. This course is wonderful for those in homesteading or just who want to save some cash! Everything you will need to learn how to build a well is right here. A great course.

          Coffee is no small matter to me. In fact if you pump my blood it is probably pure coffee I pretty much have been drinking the brew since I have been about 12. In fact they say that 2 cups of coffee helps with depression which is good to know in the stressful world we live in. I was so pleased to find out that Founding Father's Coffee actually donates 50% of their profits to American Military families! One of the best reason to drink this fine coffee... and the other...

Zambeezi Tubes      Image result for images of beekeepers





Clay and I keep bees on our little farm. We don't sell anything but we do know the work that goes into this fine lipbalm by Zambeez. Zombies is made with the purest ingredients from the heart of Africa. The lipbalm is wonderful. We were sent lipbalm to review for this post and I was really pleased with the results and I noticed how soft and healthy my lips felt after using this. The honey bees in Africa produce more honey and the Zambian honey bee is smaller than the those in America and in Europe.

Power Repair Age Correction Marine Collagen Cream, 1.7 OunceTO ORDER   http://www.pevonia.com/age-defying-marine-collagen-cream/   I had never heard of this brand prior to using this and was really pleased with the results.  I am 54 years old and am a professional make up artist and prior recruiter for several make up companies so from my point of view the Prevonia Power Repair Age Correction packaging was wonderful and the actual product was even better! The product is made with natural products and upon use I could see a difference in using this product after a week my skin felt healthier and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles were definitely less. I felt like my skin got a nice good drink of water! I would definitely recommend this brand to all my friends. 



I always feel in skincare if possible you should always purchase the entire line and use them together as usually this gives the ultimate benefit so I encourage you to consider trying all 3 of the products I review here together (I loved them all) but if you are someone that only uses cleanser , example a man, as this product can be for men or women. You will notice that the cleanser works well, isn't drying and you will notice your face feels much cleaner using Pevonia Power Repair Age Correction after cleansing I noticed my face felt super clean. I put mine in my shower so I can just shower and wash my face at the same time. LOVED IT !





I liked this product to be used in the PM. It felt nice on my face and I could see a difference. This product will give you that jump start to healthier skin - Deeply hydrates helps stimulate skin's metabalism and microcirculation. All of these products are spa quality and in doing my research for this brand I heard praise after praise. I can see why!

Image result for book beyond the REd mountains by Greg JohnsonTo order yours go to click here


I fell in love with this book. It's been awhile since I sat down and read some fantasy so I was really pleased with the story line which was fun and put me in the adventure mood!  I actually was surprised that I haven't heard more about this gem. Greg Johnson's Beyond The Red Mountains is a story of Kelvin and Elizabeth two people who think they are the only ones who have survived the Dark Days. Kelvin has questions and finds himself on a adventure and meets up with Elizabeth. They both discover they have been lied to and that things aren't as they believed.  One adventure after another, fast paced  and a page turner. It kept my interest wondering what would happen next.  They are following a map to find the last resting place of the fourth Founder of Triopolis. The book ended with a cliff hanger which leds me into the next book Across The Golden Desert (I am reading this now! review up soon!) This was definitely a first book introducing to characters. Adventure and fun. I can easily see this being compared to many adventure series as once you read the first one you will beg for more to be added to the series! I loved it! I did receive this for review purposes but no matter as we always share our honest reviews. LOVED IT!

Artisan Sea Salt











To order yours please go to http://www.hamptonssalt.com/



I first discovered the joy of using various salts was when Russell, my son began cooking special dishes for our family. He cooked the most amazing burgers simply by adding speciality salt first while cooking the burger. I began to cook using varies types of salts and found it really added to our family's meal time. Hampton Salt Company has many amazing Artisan sea salts. My favorite was the Rosemary which tastes wonderful on potatoes! What is nice about the salt is that it is natural and is loaded with natural minerals which are really good for our health. The flavors are wonderful and once you begin using Hamptons Salts you will never cook the same. Simply adding Hampton Salts
to your food can really perk up a salad, meat, vegetables and with so many flavors your creative juices will be flowing. Try that Rosemary salt on potatoes and let me know on twitter @R47R what you think! I loved it! We did receive this product for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

To order yours go to http://www.truemadefoods.com/



I love doing research as a backyard farmer. I did a little study on Ketchup 


and was surprised to find that some ketchup was more of a spice than a ketchup simply because it didn't have enough vegetables in it. I also looked into the pain staking task of making my own ketchup - May be fun to try but way too much work - it's not cheaper or practical. Here is the beauty of True Made Foods Ketchup it is Loaded with veggies and that's what we want! This is a wonderful ketchup - The other products as Well the BBQ sauce and the Veracha are delicious and loaded with the goodness of vegetables. You can definitely tell the difference in the taste - a complete YUM! We gave this product a 5 out of 5. We did receive this product for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Appel is one of those authors that once you read one of his books you automatically fall in love with his work. A work of many stories - that will draw you into the moment.

I enjoyed reviewing this product and doing my research with for this. Snuggle Me Organic is a baby lounger that you can place your baby in your bed and it is a nice time to snuggle. What is nice about this is that the baby has baby's little own space as you snuggle and coo with your little one. I would not fall asleep with your baby in the lounger but rather use this lounger as a spot to cuddle with your baby and play . Made very well with cushiony sides with no cushion in the middle.

Discount code The code is:FIVE4GIGIS and it's good for $5 OFF a 24 12-oz can case of Aspire




Clay and I both have been working hard to shed those extra pounds. When I heard about Aspire I thought Wow! This sounds like a soda to lose weight! Further research showed why this would be perfect for working on my weight and health. As a backyard farmer we do a lot of research on foods to grow, and health benefits, health, animal care etc. so when I saw green tea, ginger, cranberries, and other good things I knew they were on track.  We received a two week supply of Aspire to get us started. One ingredient used in the product is L-carnitine that reduces fat mass, increases muscle mass and reduces fatigue also ginger which is better than most motion sickness drugs, vitamin C and B 12 good for the skin etc. Adding the bubbles is definite plus for me as I personally found that good too for upset stomachs.

Image result for aspire mango drink     We spend money on all kinds of fun things but when it comes to our health we tend to put it on the back burner- One nice thing about Aspire is that it is easily obtained by the case, etc.. A worthy investment to get yourself back in shape after the Holidays (you will hear more about this below !),Now let's get into the taste. It definitely had a wonderful flavor. The cranberry was my favorite. And speaking of cranberries many people drink cranberry juice for urinary health. The flavor was fresh and Perky- I have been complaining of being really tired lately and it was fun when people who sub to us on youtube sent me messages about this- as jokes were prevailing about my 4 hour naps! (Most likely from the weight gain and the LONG winter here in the NorthEast)  If you are a subby to us on youtube http://www.youtube.com/Poplebackyardfarm you will enjoy my perkiness after getting some Aspire and will be cheering me on to get back to good health! All in all we give this a 5 out of 5 stars. You really must go to their site (listed above... got you guys traveling all over here today :) and read all the good things this product truly is a god-sent , health benefits, deals, and a challenge are all listed there after reading this review it would be a disservice if I didn't lead you there as there is so much wonderful information I think you are going to be really pleased as we were.

Clay was so excited about reviewing this kit It was all I could do to hold him back from digging in too soon -- but we did the research and we have the kit started! You will see the progress of the kit on our youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/Poplebackyardfarm which we will begin posting about this- this week. With that let's get started and I will tell you what has happened so far. The mushrooms in this kit are Oyster Mushrooms - They look like Oysters thus the name. They are edible so we plan on doing some cooking with these. The kit is easy peezy - you open the box soak it in water overnight and in 10 days you get delicious mushrooms to serve your family. Mushroom growing is a bit tricky and you will definitely want to use a kit as they do all the work for you and it's so much more fun. Some people do use the kit to continuously grow mushrooms there is a alternate use,  but you will get a lot of mushrooms with the kit so unless you have the time to dedicate you will want to just buy a few kits vs sterilizing purchasing containers, straw, sawdust, etc. the kit does all the work for you. So for now the review is super super easy, they do all the work for you - in 10 days you will get mushrooms and enjoy! Like/share this with your friends and let's all grow some food this season! I have a link above if you want to grow mushrooms too :) We did receive the kit for review purposes and no monies were exchanged. :)

Image result for cremo face moisturizer    





I love the feeling of a good fresh clean face. Cremo has some fine products and I enjoyed reviewing the face wash and moisturizer. Their products are made in the USA and that is a big plus with me. I loved how the face wash smelled and felt. I noticed immediately that my face was really clean and the cleanser was gentle on my face. The Cremo Moisturizer felt nice and creamy and smoothed on my face easily. It wasn't greasy and gave me the hydration I needed. It is a 24 hour moisturizer so I didn't have to reapply it at night although after washing my face I decided to give it another go for the night as I loved the way it made my face feel. I did receive these products for review purposes and no monies were exchanged :)
