Parables (Book Look Bloggers)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I read Parables: The Mysteries of God's Kingdom Revealed Through the Stories Jesus Told, in exchange for honest and unbiased review. The book was written by John Macarthur.

I struggled with reading this book, especially the prologue. The prologue was very detailed and contained a lot of valuable information.  This is one of those books, where you need to read it slow to absorb the information. I am a fast reader so that was hard to do at times.

The book starts out describing what a parable is and why Jesus used parables in the bible. A parable is a simple story with a message. Macarthur said a parable "illustrated a precept, proposition, or principle." Parables told a lesson about the "mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven."

One thing, which stood out immediately was Macarthur said "the method and meaning behind Jesus;s use of these stories are frequently misunderstood and misrepresented." Some people thought parables provided a simple message, accessible to people at all levels. Some thought parables is a better method for teaching the truth.

The book's chapters also discusses one parable at a time, such as the first chapter discussed  the Sabbath.

You can buy the book in paperback, Kindle, and Hardback format, using the link above. The book is prime-eligible.

Ecstasy Luxury Herbal Soaps Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received the Ecstacy Soaps - Luxury Herbal Soap Gift Box Set, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The soaps are scented with plant and flower essences. I do wish the box included a list of each scent and ingredients for each soap. The soaps do smell good and have decent lather. The soap are great for relaxing in the tub, when you need a temporary getaway.

When you first open the box, the smell is strong. It is hard to distinguish the smells until you separate them.

You can purchase the soaps using the link above.

Elegana Knives Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Elegana 10 Piece Premium Ceramic Knife Set- 4 White Mirror Finish Kitchen Knives - Ceramic Peeler - Protective Blade Covers in Gift Box, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. This is my first official knife set. I wanted the knives because knives in this house go hidden, whether to open a door (such as my bathroom door) or to hide from the kids. For example, when Brad first moved here, he was caught cutting up veggies and putting them into a pot for pretend play. (Glad he didn't know how to turn on the stove). 

When you need a knife, you have to try to remember all the hiding spots or use a plastic knife. This set stays in my room until needed. 

With the knife set, you will get 4 white mirror finish ceramic knives, 1 multi-purpose ceramic peeler, color-coded sheaths, a microfiber polishing cleaning cloth, and a gift box, which also 
makes great storage. 

The knives are sharp. I use one of the knives to cut through a block of shea butter to make some body butter. The knife slid through without issue. The peeler is good for veggies. The baby knife (green) is good for paring.

Glow Stars Supernova Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Glow Stars Supernova - 200 of the Brightest Glow in the Dark Stars, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The pack included the glow stars, putty, and a constellation guide.

To use the glow stars, you need to activate under a light. I put the stars under my lamp for about 30 minutes and applied them to the wall. Some of the stars glowed in the dark and some did not. It was still a nice pattern. I did pisces and a cross on the walls. The putty does not leave marks on the walls when applying, but be careful when removing the stars and the putty. Pulling too hard can remove the paint off the walls.

You can purchase the glow stars using the link above. The stars are prime eligible.

Fit Wrapz Review (Tomoson)

I received Fit Wrapz in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I received 4 flavors: Green Chile Chicken; Barbecue Chicken;  the egg white breakfast burrito, Breakfast Burrito with maple sugar. I was able to try out the barbecue chicken and green chili chicken, while the other two was hijacked by relatives.

What is FitWrapz

Fitwrapz makes a line of healthy burritos. Normally when I buy burritos, they are the cheap kind. The green chile chicken or beans and cheese or bean and beef. The burritos are not the most healthiest, even though they are good. 

I didn't notice much chicken in either burrito. The green chile was not too spicy, while the barbecue was a sweet barbecue sauce. I warmed up each for about  3-4 minutes to cook the rice through. Otherwise, the rice is cold and hard, which is not a good taste. 

The Green chile chicken and the barbecue was both filled with mostly brown rice. The green chile chicken is made from lean, chicken breasts, a green chile sauce, brown rice, mozzarella, and spices in a while wheat tortilla.

The barbecue chicken also came with brown rice southwestern barbecue sauce, chicken, and mozzarella cheese.

The breakfast burrito came with ground turkey, mozzarella cheese, rosemary red potatoes, egg whites scrambled, poblano chilies, and red bell peppers and the breakfast burrito with maple sugar came with maple sugar infused lean ground turkey, sharp cheddar, rosemary roasted red potatoes, egg whites, and green bell peppers.

The burritos arrived frozen in a white carton on dry ice. I put the box with dry ice outside immediately to melt, but that was hijacked by relatives.

Fitwrapz are sold in stores nationwide. Check out the store locator on the website. You also can buy using their store online. They are sold in a pack of 12.

My Scott/DG Story

I went to my local DG (which was a new location) and I was shocked. I haven't been to a Dollar General in a while. My neighborhood is Family Dollar territory. You have to make a special trip to go to Dollar General, which is about 15 minutes out. The store was big and had a wide selection of items, including Scott Products. The food aisle was massive, especially the refrigerated and frozen section. Customer service was excellent as well. If I had more time and money, I could have had a mini shopping spree at DG.

So far, I have used the paper towels for general cleaning and cleaning noses. The toilet paper is soft and massive. I am still on the first roll of both the paper towels and toilet paper.

Little Miss Basic by Dan Zevin (Blogging for Books)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I read Little Miss Basic: A Parody (Little Miss and Mr. ME ME ME), in exchange for honest review from Blogging for Books. The book was written by Dan Zevin. I have read other books in the series: Mr. Selfie and Little Miss Overshare. The books are a mix of humor and satire. Don't be fooled by the cover. These are not children's books.

In little Miss Basic, she is obsessed with the latest fads, fashions, and celebrities. The book starts off good, but I get lost in the middle. The book is not as good as Mr Selfie, who was obsessed with selfies and his selfie stick or Little Miss Overshare, who talked too much.

You can purchase the book, using the link above in paperback and kindle format. The book is prime-eligible.

Doll hair beauty set review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Click n' Play Doll Hair and Beauty Dress Up Accessory set, Perfect For 18 inch American Girl Dolls, in exchange for honest review. The kit came with a hair brush, hair curler, flat iron, mirror, two scrunchies, an accessory bag, an apron, and barrettes. It also comes with a make up brush set with holder, a tiara, lipstick, and perfume. You also get a eye shadow palette.

I wanted this for my niece for Christmas. The set has been hard to hide, along with the company's scooter set. Kalen was my test kid for the review. If Kalen can't destroy it, then the toys are good. He brushed the dolls hair without any issue. I also used the scrunchies, barrettes, and tiara, in the doll's head.

You can purchase the set on Amazon, using the link above. The doll hair beauty set is prime-eligible.

#CuliChef Spatula Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Silicone and Stainless Steel Spatula By Culichef - Black Spatula Slotted Turner - High Quality Nonstick Kitchen Utensils, in exchange for honest review. I needed a spatula to cook with. The spatulas in this house always come up missing. When you need to flip a piece of fish or a pan cake, I had to use a spoon or a fork, or waste time hunting down a spatula. Sometimes you have to change up the whole menu.

The spatula is made from steel with a silicone ends. I also liked the length of the spatula. With the silicone, you can be protected from the heat, which I love.

You can purchase the spatula, using the link above. The spatula is prime-eligible.

Click and Play Kids Doll Scooter Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

The Click n' Play Doll Scooter and Helmet Set, Perfect For 18 inch American Girl Dolls
has not arrived yet, but it has been shipped from Amazon. It will arrive Wednesday and I will update this post.

The set comes with a scooter and helmet for an 18 inch doll. My niece has the perfect doll for this. My niece needs more toys of her own versus always playing with Kalen's. She doesn't get too many toys, personalized for her because Kalen has toys, so no one really buys her any. Plus having a few toys of her own may reduce a few fights between her and my son lol.
