Softsoap Earth Blends Products Treat Your Family's Skin Right!

We often hear how we should be careful about the ingredients we put in our bodies through food, but it’s also important to pay attention to the ingredients that get absorbed through our skin! But with so many hand and body products at the store, it can be difficult to know exactly which ingredients and products are best for you and your family. Fortunately, the NEW Softsoap® Earth Blends line has taken the guesswork out of finding products that are good for the skin. Their paraben-free and dye-free moisturizing line is made from biodegradable cleaning ingredients, and their body washes and hand soaps are formulated with only 10 ingredients. Check out the following Softsoap® Earth Blends products, which are available exclusively at Walmart!


Softsoap® Earth Blends Moisturizing Body Wash
o Scents: Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber, Coconut & Fig, Pomegranate & Plum
o Available for $4.97 only at Walmart

Softsoap® Earth Blends Moisturizing Liquid Hand Soap
o Scents: Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber, Coconut & Fig, Pomegranate & Plum
o Available for $2.47 only at Walmart

Softsoap® Earth Blends Moisturizing Triple Milled Bar Soap
o Scents: Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber, Coconut & Fig
o Available for $3.47 only at Walmart

I’ve been using several of these products at home, and I love them! The Coconut & Fig body wash smells soooo good. A little bit goes a long way, and it comes in a big 16.9 fl oz size, so it lasts a long time. It rinses cleanly, and my skin feels soft and smooth afterward. The Softsoap® Earth Blends Moisturizing Triple Milled Bar Soaps are wonderful, too. I have the Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber scent, and the smell tantalized me even while still in the package! It even has real grapefruit and cucumber juice in it! The moisturizing liquid hand soaps are just as great and are perfect for keeping next to the sink in the bathroom, kitchen or laundry room.

The Softsoap® Earth Blends line is fantastic, and I’ll definitely be looking for more next time I’m at Walmart. I hope you will, too. With low prices, amazing scents, and ingredients that are good for your family’s skin, these products are a win-win for everyone!



Disclosure: Thank you to Colgate-Palmolive for providing Softsoap samples for review purposes.

Vera Bradley’s Beautiful Designs Are Now Available in Gift Wrap from Fox Chapel Publishing!

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Vera Bradley brand. I have purses, wallets, duffels, lanyards, note cards and more in their gorgeous colors and patterns! So, I was thrilled to hear that Vera Bradley has partnered with Fox Chapel Publishing to create a beautiful gift wrapping paper collection. Yes, Vera Bradley’s incredible designs can now adorn gifts for all your loved ones. Their gift wrap series includes:


Baby Bump Wrapping Paper

Happy Holidays Wrapping Paper

I received the Baby Bump Wrapping Paper for review, and I must say that these papers are STUNNING! The colors and patterns are so bright and beautiful that your gift recipient will be reluctant to tear them!



There are 20 large sheets in each book, measuring 18x24 inches, and they’re perforated so they’re easy to remove. Every page has a different design, and the paper is nice and thick.


The book even includes twenty gift tags with words like “Congrats,” “With Love” and “Ta-Da!” that you can personalize and color to match the paper. What fun!

Although the Baby Bump Wrapping Paper is ideal for wrapping baby gifts, the designs can really be used for any occasions, such as Mother’s Day and birthdays. I absolutely love these wrapping papers, and I can’t wait to see how beautiful my packages are going to look when I present my next gifts!

Book Review: “My Prayer Journal,” by Joanne Fink


I sometimes get into a rut when it comes to prayer. The purpose of prayer is to communicate with God, but I wouldn’t blame Him if he got a little bored with my conversation! That’s why I really like the concept of keeping a prayer journal. A good prayer journal not only provides space to record the people and events I want to pray for, but also includes prompts to get me thinking in new directions so my prayers don’t become stale.

I recently received a lovely prayer journal for review called simply, My Prayer Journal by Joanne Fink (Quiet Fox Designs, 2018). This beautifully illustrated hardcover book is almost too pretty to write in! Nevertheless, I will do so because the prompts are so useful in jump-starting my prayers. Examples of prompts include:
  • Today I am especially grateful for:
  • Today I regret:
  • Today I am in awe of:
  • Today I will care for:
  • Today I will nurture myself by:

Bible verses and inspirational quotes are sprinkled throughout the book. If you like to color, some of the illustrations are left uncolored. And the pages have a blank space to insert the date so you don’t feel pressure to journal every day or have to finish the journal within a certain time frame. At the beginning of the book, you'll find "My Prayer List" where you can fill in blank spaces with the date, name and reason for your prayers. At the end of the book are pages for each month where you can record special things that happened (or will happen) on particular days.

With a sturdy hard cover and thick pages, this book will withstand many trips in your tote bag, purse or suitcase. It also makes a unique and thoughtful gift for any occasion. But be sure to treat yourself first with a copy of My Prayer Journal and watch your prayer life bloom and grow.
