Skipping Stones - by J.B. McGee Ebook-Review


Skipping Stones E-book Review

About the Authour


I had the pleasure of getting a copy of Skipping Stones in exchange for a review. I love books and love the chance to get to share things that i read. I will always express my honest opinions.


I'm usually a Dean Koontz reader. I couldn't pass up reading something different when it was free. I usually find romantic novels to be a bit over sexual. In all honesty. it took me a bit to get into this book. Once i started reading I was enthralled with the story and I found it hard to stop reading.  

Skipping stones is a very emotional book. 
Alex Hart endures so much pain and heartaches.
You go on a very emotional journey with Alex.

One minor decision can have a huge impact in ur lives.


They say there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. 

Not everyone will grieve in this order, nor will everyone go through every stage. It’s during the stage of denial when Alex Hart meets Andrew Foster. He takes her one-step closer to acceptance: the stage when new, meaningful relationships are formed. The stage when the realization occurs that this is now the new state of normal. 

Just when Alex thinks she is on her way to healing, she enters the bargaining phase. That’s the phase where you wonder what you could have done differently. You wonder “what if?” Specifically, what if the ones you loved hadn’t left you? 

Leaving…this is what makes heading off to war so difficult and frightening for Alex. She knows all too well what it’s like to be the one on the losing end of life, which is why she’s made it her personal mission in life to save as many lives as possible. The extreme high she gets from treating trauma victims turns into Alex’s own form of therapy, or so she thinks. 

When faced with her world being turned upside down, Alex may just find that her true therapy is in the one who has always saved her. 

Skipping Stones is a stand alone novel.

Waves of love E-book review

I got the chance to read this Ebook for free. I love books and wanted to incorporate e-books as part of my reviews.


Waves of love is  a true romance story. It is based on the authors own experience. This made the book much more. I guess you could say magical. This book was hard to stop reading. Sage and Derek are just loveable people. This was a really great romantic novel and I usually don't tend to read many to be honest.  If you are looking for a great read then i suggest this book. I am so happy I got to review and share this book with you all. 

Amazon USA-HERE
Amazon CA- $3.47




Can love overcome a huge age gap?
Sage is 10 years older than Derek. She is very attracted Derek, the age difference makes her very nervous.
She owns her own bookstore in Florida, She loves her work so much that she lives above the bookstore in an apartment. One day a hunky surfer strolls in. 
Derek is not a regular surfer he's an author of surfing travelogues, he wants to do a book signing or two at sage's store.
Sage has a better offer for Derek and in return he has to teach sage how to surf. 
Will the two find love in the waves?

Yalmeh Glory Eye Gel Review



Yalmeh Glory Eye Gel Review


I got the chance to try out this eye gel in exchange for my honest opinion. This company is very new to me, and with most new things i am hesitant. The first thing i checked before reviewing was the ingredients. I had the chance to review another eye cream you can read about that HERE

I added straight from their amazon listing, the information. I love that it is mainly all natural products. 


This product was amazing, like in the other review of Yalmeh cream. This gel is amazing i found that it was just the right consistency and it wasn't runny or overly oily. My skin is very sensitive and in the past i have tried multiple products and end up breaking out or burning my skin...

Having a insomnia problem adds to negative things like bags under eyes. When i applied this the first time it made the eye area so smooth. i honestly thought the product was not going to work. When i woke up on day 10 of using it my bags were hard to find.

This is a great product in my opinion. its fairly priced on amazon. The product worked for me perfectly and i am very happy with the results.

YALMEH Super Youth Eye Cream Review


YALMEH Super Youth Eye Cream Review



I had the amazing opportunity to try out this product. I have used other creams in the past from many different places, my skin is very sensitive. It's hard to find something that can and will suit me. When I was asked to review this it was a must for me. I also like sharing new products. While I did receive this product free I will always give my honest opinion.


This product is soft and smooth during application. I have insomnia so dark bags under my eyes are unavoidable. my eye area felt soft and refreshed. The product smells good (natural aloe smell)

I found that it did make my eyes feel less drowned out, it honestly felt very good and it didn't burn my skin or cause irritation like other products have in the past. My eye area each time after application felt silky smooth and the next morning. My only problem is that I didn't see any improvements with wrinkles.


I would suggest this to anyone with dark circles. It worked amazing on my very sensitive skin. It would make a great gift.

Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 Review

I was very excited when I got approved for the campaign to try out Pantene Pro-V line. I got the chance to try full sized products of the Pro-V line through Bzz Agent.


I have very thin dull hair that is hard to style or do anything with. I have resorted to washing, brushing and putting it up in a ponytail. Most products that i use I find that it makes my hair feel weighed down. Often leaving my hair looking wet and greasy the next day. I found that with using this line that I did'not have that. my hair felt like it had bounce and while I haven't tried to really style it just brushing it out I could notice a difference.

* I have been using the shampoo and conditioner for over a week now and I love how it makes my hair feel, its soft and bouncy now. I just love it. Its just as good or better then my go to shampoo and conditioner. If you have limp dead thin hair you should try this line out.


So or receiving the products I wanted to try them all for the sake of the review and to test the product line to give my readers a good review.

Shampoo- It was amazing, it didn't weigh my hair down and actually made it look and feel a bit fuller. The shampoo isn't strong smelling it's just a perfect blend of aroma.

Conditioner- I, usually, skip using this as most conditioners make my hair look and feel so greasy days after. I think it has to do with my hair being thin, but it always happens with conditioners. I started using this for the last week and found that my ends look way better and the overall effect that it has had is positive, to my surprise it didn't weigh my hair down, take forever to wash out. My hair didn't grease up like it usually does, it added to the effect of weightless and bouncy hair, with some volume

Ultimate 10 bb creme-. I was impartial to this, I don't really style my hair but I had to try this. The formula is very lightweight, its not sticky and doesnt just sit on your hair like most products do, I did the first time apply to much and it made my hair feel like it was coated but with using the right amount i found that i didn't have any problems. I don't think this is a product that I will use long term and will most likely give it away. While I did like it, it just wasn't for me.

How Insomnia and RLS is effecting my life

How I yearn for the days where closing my eyes was simple, drifting off into the dreamworld. Waking up feeling full of energy. Being able to do the things a regular sleeping person can do. Cleaning, Organization, Thinking ahead creating meal plans..

 When I try to sleep , my legs will shake like crazy a feeling that is hard to explain. I found that the need to shake was moving into my hands. after being frustrated and almost in tears, I tried to Google my symptoms, it came up as Restless Leg Syndrome.

While I couldn't find any natural remedies I did find that I could be low on iron, or I have the beginning stages of Parkinson (highly unlikely) If you have problems sleeping please check out the Friday health topic for Insomnia HERE I'm finding that while I'm going through this, its taking a toll on me mentally. Not being able to sleep. Then crashing for many hours, or right through the day. It is messing with my internal clock. I have found that lack of sleep has me jumping sacred at harmless things like my cat jumping up on my bed.

 These are some things that I am trying to help my body get the rest it needs. First is with anxiety I shouldn't be drinking caffeine, I have never been a huge coffee fan. I do have a soft spot for ice cappuccino from Tim Horton. I used to buy one daily but have really stopped in the past 3 months. It's best to avoid any caffeine at night or before you go to sleep. ( Please keep in mind soda has caffeine and other products, you should always check to make sure)

 Exercise is a huge way to help- So often i blame my disabilities on not being able to be active, but enough is enough. I NEED to push myself if you aren't active you should be. Just reading hundreds of other people talking abut the benefits was encouraging. Not only does exercise help with Insomnia but it is beneficial to other things like joint pain, anxiety, stroke prevention, weight loss, diabetes, helps improve your mood and increase energy.

Weight Loss & Detox- Green Smoothies E-book Review




This is a great innovative E-book, it captures your attention without leaving you wondering or questioning what you have read, it is very cleverly written.

I am not new to the smoothie world but i had given up as i was just getting random produce and thinking that i was doing the right thing, It was so gross and disgusting, i thought that my smoothie days were over.

 This book changed it all. It gave me all the crucial information that i needed to make delicious smoothies that are VERY healthy for myself and my family. This book gives you many tips and answers all your questions and is packed with delicious recipes. My favorite is the Apple Celery Smoothie.

 If you are looking for a healthy alternative to weight loss, acne, Health problems, this book would be amazing and work for you.

 When I was offered the chance to receive this book free in exchange for an honest opinion, I was worried that it would be just another book leaving me asking questions. It was amazing with 50 recipes and they are so easy to make with multiple options.

In this book you will discover:

  • What is a Green Smoothie?
  • What’s So Good About Green Smoothies?
  • Nutritional Value and Health Benefits of Green Smoothies
  • The Healthiest Weight Loss Program Methodology
  • Types of Green Smoothies
  • Tasty Tips

Dotted nail manicure-beginner

Dotted Manicure- Beginner

Nyblues,Nicollete




So if you didn't know I am new to the whole nail polish art community, I have loved painting my nails in the past as it's a good way to distract me from my thoughts and helps with anxiety.

Today I am sporting the NYC- ny blues as a base and used my Nicolette from julep, for the dots, I used my biggest round dotter (first time using it) it was a lot easier then I thought it would be. When using the dotting tool try to get a good amount of polish on the end and lightly dab where you want your dot. 

It hard to credit the first person who created this simple manicure, so I would just like to thank all the bloggers and people who have created this look and have shared with others.



Base cost before clean up, I had to show this color off.


With the dots, keep in mind I am a beginner :p and novice picture taker.
I'm sure as I keep working with the dotter tools i will get more even dots and maybe even lined up.





I loved each polish, they were very easy to work with and I am using pro fx nail repair base coat.

Powder has health benefits for you and your pets.


fossils, diatomaceous, diatomaceous earthdiatomaceous earth powder, food grade
Diatomaceous is made form fossilized remains of tiny aquatic organisms called diatoms, their skeletons are made of a substance called silica. Silica is very common in nature and makes up 26% of the earths crust by weight. It usually reacts with oxygen and water to form silicon dioxide 

Silicon dioxide has two naturally occurring forms: Crystalline and amorphous. It can contain very low levels of crystalline silicon dioxide. The first pesticide products containing silicon dioxide were registered in 1960 to kill insects and mites.

Products containing diatomaceous earth are usually sold as dust, other formulations are wettable powders and pressurized liquid. Diatomaceous earth products are registered for use against, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, spiders, bed bugs, ticks and much more pests.

It compromises bugs with an exoskeleton (ants, fleas, bed bugs) It doesn't hurt mammals, in fact, we eat it!! Grains are stored with diatomaceous earth to keep the bugs from eating the grain.


HOW IT WORKS.


microscopic view of diatomaceous earth
Diatomaceous earth particles are very sharp looking at a microscopic level. The particles stick to an insect and gets stuck between its exoskeleton joints as it moves, it gets cut up.

There is another explanation. diatomaceous earth sticks to an insect and causes them to dry out, scratching the waxy layer which allows precious moisture within the insect to get out, leaving them shriveled and dried up.

THERE ARE REMARKABLE HEALTH BENEFITS THROUGH SILICA.


Silica is necessary for calcium absorption, silica, which is abundant in Diatomaceous earth, has many healing properties, Helps prevent wrinkles by building up collagen and elastin, which is important in all connective tissues, including cartilage, tendons, ligaments and vascular lining. it strengthens the muscle skeletal system preventing injuries and speeding healing of fractures.

Diatomaceous earth can be used for internal and external use. The microscopic shells in diatomaceous earth  are composed of silica and at least 14 trace minerals. As it moves through the stomach and digestive tract it attracts and absorbs bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticide and drug residues, e-coli and heavy metals. the toxins trapped and passed out of the body.symptoms often associated with them such as. fatigue, bloating, unclear thinking headaches, skin disorders.

Invisible disability RANT

This post is going to be a rant from me. 

 A post about my opinions on the action of others.



If you didn't know my name is Samantha. I have some disability, I blog because its something that has captivated my attention and gives me something to do to pass the time. I don't really do much during the day as my disability keeps me from doing things.

I have a long history of Mental Illness for myself, but it is something that effects allot of members of my family. I was only diagnosed of being depressed when I was 21 years old.I should have been diagnosed very early in my life, I was bullied for pretty much most of y life for being overweight. I did poorly in school. I do have a history of self-harm and drug abuse. The counselling wasn't helping. They had said that I was too young to be depressed. I had started getting panic attacks while being a passenger in a vehicle. Then it progressed from not being able to be in a vehicle to being afraid to go outside. At this point in time, everyone around me was semi supportive. When I would try to go outside my body would seize, I would start sweating really bad then i would get tingling in my feet, my breath would start getting short. Millions of jumbled thoughts would go through my mind, I would literally think that I was dying. All of this just added more on top of the major depression that I was coping with. When I knew I had to be somewhere on a future date I would have problems sleeping, I would have random anxiety attacks. My anxiety started getting worse I was starting to feel out of body during attacks ( Depersonalization)

I went from being a spontaneous person who loved to be outside, I would take the train to downtown Calgary, AB. Almost every day. I interacted with people, I had many friends. I was a normal functioning person, and yearn to be that every day. Now I barely leave my it always Doctor and groceries.

If I hadn't wrote that no one would know my situation and my struggles. Or know that I don't want to live like this every day, no one should!

Yet people pass judgement "it's all in your head" or how could someone like you be considered disabled, it is a known fact that there are many stigmas to invisible disability, you can't physically see the person pain, or mental problems.

Angry, Steamed

Just because you don't see me freaking out while having a panic attack ( although sometimes i do go white) doesn't mean they aren't real, they aren't something you can control or stop, its years of coping with anxiety and being able to look calms so i don't draw attention to myself. Just because i look calm might be the narcotic anti-anxiety medication i'm on

The dirty looks I get when parked in the handicap spot, its despicable I already have social anxiety so when I hear you say "she doesn't look disabled to me, shame people take advantage of the system" When clearly my parking permit is posting in the windshield, I have the permit due to not being able to sit,stand or walk for long as my lower back has problems, I have to mentally PUSH myself to do my own grocery shopping, each time is mental exhausting. Most of the time I barely make it out without just leaving everything and getting out as quick as possible. Any other time i'm in a vehicle and we stop and I don't have to get out we don't use the disabled parking.

Another thing is the looks that my driver gets when I'm in the grocery store, he gets leered at, snorted at, sworn at. WHY? Because people have to make a judgment on a situation they know nothing about?

There are so many people who are in worse situations than me. People with invisible disabilities are already going through enough!!! Can't people just try to not pass judgment so quickly, we don't know any ones story, their background, what they go through each day. If you are having a bad day is it so hard to keep your negative comments to yourself?


I would like people to start really thinking before they comment out loud, if you don't understand something or you just hear information from others, investigate yourself!! I'm in a facebook group for people with anxiety and it was brought up that this girls mom just didn't understand, but he mom was added to the group and after seeing that many people go through the same things she started to understand. Knowing what's going on around you is a good thing, maybe if that woman who made the snide marks around me knew what anxiety or social anxiety is then maybe she wouldn't have been so quick to pass judgement and ruin my state of mind. You don't have to be arrogant to get your point across.  People actions hurt people.

There are so many people who suffer and put on a brave face, yet they get nasty looks and snide remarks thrown at them. not knowing what this person has to go through and the normalness that the person is seeing is a mask, under the mask is pretty ugly.

It really is hard to explain to someone an invisible disability, but you can help them get educated, send them to some groups you are part of, show them the information.

This is the end of my rant if you  go through this or know someone who has a comment below I would love to hear your stories.

Kijiji VS Craigslist VS ?

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


kijiji or craigslist or facebook

KIJIJI OR CRAIGSLIST

Everyone by now should know what Kijiji and Craigslist. Craigslist more due to some weird things happening on there. I have often wondered What is better? Kijiji or Craigslist.


Okay, So we will start with Kijiji.

It's a great site, you can find lots of things and as always its buyer beware. They have a free section. (usually ridden with people getting rid of their animals) You can find some great items and meet people. One of the things I find useful is the job section. The website is very easy to use if your buying or selling.

There is a downside, you have to email and wait for an email back. I had a situation where when I was browsing someone with a business had their ads posted all over (against the T.O.S of Kijiji) and when I nicely asked him to stop explaining that I have to go through pages of his business adds that are categorized.  He told me to get a life and things got heated up, He stalked my email and sent me messages about how he was going to ruin my life, He was a big A-hole. I found that Kijiji lets some people getaway with it and often it makes it suck to have to go through that to find what you searched for.

I won't go much into Craigslist I have always found it to be very confusing, people still use it but when I went to try to use it I just got really confused. Kijiji in my opinion way better. without all the creepiness. Their platform to me isn't very friendly and I have noticed at least for my area there isn't much posting, but lot's in the escort section.



NOW what if I told you that there is a better way to buy and sell and you probably use it often.

Facebook groups have been exploding with buy and sell groups, I would imagine there would be one local to you, using Facebook is pretty decent you get to talk one on one with the person. You can kinda see who you are buying from. .You don't have to wait around for an email. I find that you get better results when you are selling ( As long as you add a picture and description) You can haggle prices and get some good deals. I had got an electric guitar, Guitar stand and amp for $25 Delivered. Sometimes you can catch the best deals on things that people won't even post on Kijiji. 

Another great thing about groups on Facebook is the free cycle groups that may be floating around for your area, Where I am there are free cycle groups and a group for mothers called Frugal Mom, it's amazing some of the items that are given away. Not only that you become part of an amazing community. People give away furniture, gift cards you name it!!

Try searching in Facebook. _______ free, frugal, free cycle. If you can't find one on your own why not create one? Its super easy to create a page and if you invite friends it will grow in time and you will have an active Facebook page. 


What is a Facebook page?

Facebook Pages enable Public Figures, businesses, organizations or other entities to create an authentic public presence on Facebook.  

Example: If you are a fan of True Blood, you can connect with the official Facebook page.

What is a Facebook Group?
Facebook Groups: Are the place for a small group communication. You have an option to make the group publicly available for anyone, or require approval for members to join, you can make it by invitation only. This is widely used to make buy and sell groups as its very easy to add admins. And the posts are easier to read, you can also create events. 

Where are you from and are you part of Facebook selling groups? What is your experience?

Support from others often has a huge impact on us.There is no shortage of places to find support and encouragement most often free.Listening and seeing stories of others who have faced similar circumstances can comfort and inspire more confidence. They are everywhere you could always join a group on Facebook. or just Google support forums.


Meditation

MY STORY


I personally have battled with depression my whole life, I was bullied all through school that attributed to my depression even today. When I was younger there wasn't much support for a 12-year-old. I was often told that I was too young to be depressed. Depression consumed my life, it played a role in the bad decisions that I had made. such as trying to loose myself in substance abuse. Self-harm and continuing to live in an unhealthy relationship (13-18)

There wasn't much support growing up, and having family issues already (two brothers with ADHD) my youngest brother was a handful and when we would go to counselling as a family attention was directed to my younger brother, even when they had me one on one it was always about my brother. I never really got the help that I needed.

I was loosing control, I was constantly doing drugs to numb the pain I was feeling inside. It wasn't until I found myself alone on my birthday, high on cocaine that I realized that I was better than the drugs I was pumping into my body. My parents had no clue what was going on as I tried to keep everything secretive.

When not doing drugs I was very sensitive emotional and I started self-harm. Often hiding it from everyone it was a way for me to feel or release what I was feeling inside. the scars will last a lifetime. I started to realize that I was just making myself uglier. I don't know how to explain how I stopped, but I started to appreciate my skin.


Many other things contributed to my adolescent depression such as poverty and family problems. As many that grow up with very little, know that its hard. Food isn't always there, having to wear ripped and unfitting clothing, being constantly bullied.

I got through the rough patch of my depression when I was finally diagnosed with having depression, unfortunately i started having panic attacks. I went to the hospital and was given a psychologist and anti-anxiety medication and depression medication. I started looking online more and reading stories and found that I'm not alone. I found that not being quiet about my depression helped. Talking always helps, airing out issues and gaining insight to what other people perceive your situation to be and offer solutions or support. I found that the medication was working, each day I felt better inside (it took time to find the right medication for me)


Anyone reading this, please if you think or are depressed please know that its nothing to be ashamed about. You should always find someone that you can freely and openly talk to when needed. If you need help please seek it. There are thousands of people that try to hide their depression. by being open about your feelings, you can feel a release within.I will be coming back to this subject with resources on how to overcome depression.

If you need help please seek it there are helplines that are for anyone, I will include some resources.
PLEASE IF YOU ARE IN DISTRESS GO TO THE ER, MAKE A APPOINTMENT WITH A DOCTOR!!



support, help, advice, assistance, guidance sign

blah therapy is a great website, you can anonymously vent to someone random or you can be the listener. I tested out this site and found it to be a hit and miss, but a great way to vent, the only downside is that you could be getting advice from someone very young.

daily strength Is a forum based website

psych central Forum based

*Search Facebook groups for depression, you will find allot, please read the rules before you enter to see if it's the right group for you. If you happen to know of a group please leave a link below.
