I've had a chance to try the flip flops in the past, but never the ballet flats, and they're so adorable I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try them out. I love the variety of colors and embellishments they offer - Bright green to pastels, to nudes and basics. These are very durable shoes and very fashionable, but my only complaint was that they were sweaty. My feet had no way to "breathe" so to speak. So I'm not sure they're the perfect hot weather shoe, but in the Fall and Winter I will definitely be wearing these often!

Reunited in their hometown, Karen and Val must grapple with their past mistakes, their own relationship and their issues with a mother who is far from ideal. When a physical therapist raising his daughter alone and a handsome but hurting musician enter the picture, the summer takes on a whole new dimension. As their lives intersect and entwine, can each sister learn how to forgive, how to let go and how to move on? And strengthened by the healing power of faith, might they also find the courage to love?
My Thoughts: While I've enjoyed Irene Hannon's other novels, that are full of drama, suspence and romance, this book had a different feal. It was more about family relationships and the issues that inevitably come along with those relationships. She's a very talented author, and I would suggest her books to people who enjoy somewhat predictable christian fiction novels.

• Powder-coated steel frame with breathable, all-weather textilene mesh fabric
• Great for use anywhere outside - pool, porch, patio and more
• Folding design for easy transport and storage
We had a chance to try out these chairs, and while we love plow and hearth as a whole we weren't completely sold on these chairs. While they're a great concept, in reality they aren't.
Pros: Lightweight, compact and thus doesn't take up much space. They are made with breathable material so you aren't sitting in pools of your own sweat on hot days. Also the chair stays in place once you're positioned so you don't have to work hard to keep yourself balanced in that position. The other nice feature is the built in headrest.
Cons: We found these chairs hard to get in and out of. To me it was the equivalent of a 9 month old pregnant woman trying to get in and out of bed...it's just not an easy feat. They also aren't very durable, as the bungee is already fraying and if the paint chips it will rust very quickly. I know that nothing can last forever, but with only having them a few months they're already showing signs of wear and tear.

Transfixing and dynamic, the Color of the Year sparks a highly charged mood for the seasons ahead. Visualize a color revolution of infinite potential—from subtle effects to saturated statements—fueled by a hunger for high-tech impact.
Experience Emerald from every angle through never-before-seen formulas designed to energize the way you wear color in 2013. Connect. Charge. Power up with the Color of the Year.
I recently had a chance to try this new line from Sephora + Pantone and really enjoyed many of their products. The first thing I LOVED, were the shadow color blocks. They come in three different color trios, and at least one of the colors comes as a matte and at least one with some shine, for the perfect combination. But what I also loved is the twist out mirror that is hidden beneath the compact. To be honest, I didn't realize the mirror was there until about the 10th use.
Some of the other great products are the liquid eyeliner in emerald, and the the amazing collection of cosmetic brushes. They had a brush for everything!
Head over to Sephora's site to purchase these for yourself!
Many thanks to Bold PR for the chance to try these out!

And I've always believed them.
Now everything has changed.
Now, I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.
Lena looks forward to receiving the government-mandated cure that prevents the delirium of love and leads to a safe, predictable, and happy life, until ninety-five days before her eighteenth birthday and her treatment, when she falls in love
My Thoughts: This is a captivating book with very interesting plot - love is a disease and everyone gets cured at age 18. It's desired until someone starts feeling the effects of love, and doesn't want it to stop. Authors who write dystopian novels have such creative minds! I could never think up these plots even if I tried.
PANDEMONIUM: I’m pushing aside
the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana
and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
But we are still here.
And there are more of us every day.
Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.
After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor.
Maybe we are driven crazy by our feelings.
Maybe love is a disease, and we would be better off without it.
But we have chosen a different road.
And in the end, that is the point of escaping the cure: We are free to choose.
We are even free to choose the wrong thing.
Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge
