A MUST FOR MODEST CLOSETS

Kosher Casual combines modesty with the fashion styles of the modern world. A perfect example of this is the Calf length Skirt I received.

As I mentioned, the skirt I received is calf-length and in black. This particular style is perfect for spring weather. It allowed me to be modest, feminine, and beautiful all while staying stylish. Not sure how to style? I paired this skirt with a white tee shirt to style down and a long-sleeved collared white shirt to dress up. This skirt is perfect to wear around the house or out with friends.

The skirt did have a wonderful length. I feel like modesty is hard to come by in 2017; however, Kosher Casual offers stylish options that I enjoyed a lot. Because the skirt was calf-length, I felt confident knowing I was wearing something that not only I, but my family and friends would want to see me in. There is a common misconception that modest clothing…

Are you ready to boost your dry shampoo's performance? Then you need the Mini-G brush from Hotheads! This brush drastically improved my hair's look and texture.


If your dry shampoo if leaving your locks limp, Hotheads, the premier hairbrush line developed by stylists with over fifty years of experience of addressing a variety of haircare needs via design and function, has just want you need to pump the volume. The Mini-G, when combined with dry shampoo, upgraded my locks to a more voluminous, stylish tresses.

The Mini-G, the dry shampoo brush, from Hotheads was specifically designed for back-brushing- a method of brushing the hair to create volume- and for leaving hair with a fresh, clean finish. This finish occurred no matter which brand of dry shampoo I chose to use it with, so this makes it a must. It's versatile ability to work with any brand of dry shampoo makes its abi…

REVIEW: ASOBU

The first product I received was the Oasis water bottle(pictured in green). This is part of the fashion forward collection. I did find that this water bottle was by no mean plain or bland; it was extremely contemporary. It is less of a water bottle and more of a must-have accessory! I loved having a water bottle as fashion conscious as I am! Complete your look with this highly contemporary water bottle with trendy colors. The green pictured is simply perfect for spring! The Oasis has a 20oz storage capacity, is vacuum insulated, and has double walled stainless steel allowing drinks to stay cool up to 24 hours! These are essential features for the modern woman. The leak proof lid and easy grip texture make it a perfect traveling companion. I loved taking this bottle with my on my travels. Oasis is the accessory you need!

Next, I received the Viva La Vie Water bottle(pictured in blue).…

I received the Alyssa from DM Fashion by Diviine Modestee. This is the perfect stylish dress to wear to all parties. Whether it be graduation, wedding, or birthday parties, this dress is a must-have. I wore this on the Easter Vigil and received numerous compliments. Both the color and style make it perfect for the season. The peach color and midi length made me feel fancy and free! As I mentioned earlier, this truly is the perfect dress to celebrate Spring in. The dress features a lace bodice, a pleat-trimmed waist, and a skirt that is simply perfect for twirling. I found the lace and pleating to really give the dress a feminine air and allowed for a very flattering fit. The bodice is made of nylon whereas the skirt is made of cotton. This interesting combination allows for a unique yet beautiful look. As I mentioned earlier, the skirt is fully lined. This feature allows for the …

REVIEW: MILK+SASS

Milk+Sass. The name alone reminds me of beauty. I received the Macaron for hair. It is a detangling hairbrush with a mirror compact. So far, it sounds like it just like any other compact hairbrush; well, that's where you're wrong. This product is bit size; it easily fits into any purse, bag, or pocket. I found that this product was able to fit in a bag that even my phone is not able to fit into! This brush is also concealed; bristles are protected with a cover. This cover keeps bristles from getting out of place and keeps the brush effective. The brush even has advanced ergonomics for optimal comfort, balance, and control with a velvet touch. As someone with thick hair, I am used to dealing with brushes that rip right through my hair. It was so nice to find a brush that felt good in my hair. Speaking of bristles, this brush has revolutionary bristles that detangle hair twice as…

REVIEW: LAUREN BROOKE COSMETIQUES

I received this brow kit from Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques. This is the second brow kit I have ever gotten the chance to review, or let alone use, so I was really excited to see how it panned out. The designing wax and brush made it really easy for me to have fabulous brows. Most of the time, I never use more than a highlighting pencil, but this kit really allowed me to step up my brow game. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques offers three sets: basic, deluxe, and pro.

As much as I love makeup, I am not super into eyebrows. Like all women, I care about what they look like, but most of the time, I leave them as they are(after they are waxed or threaded of course!). Because of this, I tried out the basic kit. This kit included brow color, designing wax, brush/applicator combo, and stencils. Overall, I really liked what this kit had to offer, and I highly recommend it!

Parents and teachers alike are sure to love MyEduCrate- a crate the provides fun ways for kids to learn. This month's theme was: "Are we there yet?". There are a lot of ways to keep your kids busy while you travel. Most parents opt to let their children stare brain-dead at electronics. Don't be that parent. This months crate is dedicated to a summer road trip filled with fun and learning. Whether you are traveling near or far, this crate is sure to provide so much fun that you'll never hear that dreaded phrase again. I was really pleased with the four items that came in my crate.

Boost reading comprehension, evaluative thinking, and logical reasoning all while you play! This game was not as popular with my nephew as the other products, but I en…

REVIEW: BOOKCASE.CLUB

Disclaimer: I received product in exchange for an honest review.

I received Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown and The Elementals by Francesa Lia Block from BookCase.Club. You can find BookCase.Club on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. If you received your own BookCase.Club case this month, be sure to post your pictures to my Facebook Fan Page. For more information about this March's box or about any other boxes, visit BookCase.Club on the web.

Lies Beneath stars Calder White who lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior and is the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids.Calder and his sisters must prey on humans and absorb their positive energy to survive. I enjoyed this aspect because it really connected to the original Greek and other ancient cultures perception of mermaids. I felt that this story really got away from the beautiful singing mermaids to the true nature of this mythical creatures. Usually, Calder and his sisters select their victims at random, but …
