This drawstring bag with display sheet makes it easy to find what you're looking for. Open the bag, pull out the loose end of the display sheet, and pour the bag's contents onto it so you can look through them. When you've found what you need, just lift the display sheet and slide the rest of the items back into the bag!
Sleek, durable nylon fabric makes this a great storage device for any range of small items that might be otherwise difficult to organize! This is great for makeup, but I must say, it is also amazing for hair accessories, jewelry, and even toys! It holds a surprising amount! Super easy and great for travel!

Simplybeautiful Basic 100% Pure Badger Shaving Brush With Ivory Handle


Proper shaving has become a lost art. Today’s average male has no clue about the fine art of the traditional wet shave that their grandfathers and some of their fathers used to take part in. Instead, they’re only accustomed to the cheap and disposable shaving products that companies market. Jason shaves this way, and really prefers it over modern shaving.

If you’ve never used a brush during shaving, you’re in for a treat. A brush helps hydrate the shaving cream in order to form a thick, rich shaving lather. Using a brush to lather up helps get the shaving cream up under each whisker which results in better, smoother shaves. Plus, it just feels nice on your face to lather up with a brush. Brushes are made out of two types of animal hair: boar and badger. If you really want to have a nice shaving experience, splurge and buy a badger hair brush. Badger brushes create more lather and it feels a lot nicer on your face.

At SimplyBeautiful, they care about the shaving products they build. They choose each and every product carefully and after inspecting numerous options. This Brush generates a rich and warm lather, softens and lifts the beard, opens pores, brings sufficient water to the skin, and gently exfoliates.

A must have for a close comfortable shave. Gently exfoliates the skin and creates a rich, soothing later. 100% Badger hair bristles. Jason uses these brushes to shave. It is old school, and it reminds me of my grandfather. We used to always play with the brushes when we were kids in Grandpa's bathroom, we loved the softness. This is a great gift idea for any man who still shaves this way!

CanYouHandlebar?


Beard Dry Oil is a premium hand-crafted beard oil, with a twist. Like all beard oils, DO provides the oils that hairs crave, producing a healthy shine that makes beards and goatees look great. The product is called a “dry” oil because they add just enough beeswax to make the oil solid at room temperature. "DO" not only stands for “Dry Oil”, but also reminds us to do the things we know we should do. Do not procrastinate. Do honorable things. Do things our dads would be proud of. As the ancient proverb goes, “do what is right and come what may.” Isn’t that a good thought to have in the morning?

This oil is built around the warm scent of fresh cut spruce and cedar. It is warm and fresh but definitely masculine. It will remind you of sitting by a fire with a cup of coffee and letting your mind wander. Like all beard oils, it will make your beard or goatee look awesome, by restoring the oils it should have had all along. DO will make your facial hair look better by adding a very light gloss, while feeling softer and keeping your beard healthy and strong. The base oil was designed to help your beard look great and maintain its health. The aroma is made of high quality essential with no cheap fillers. The attention to detail extends to the labeling. Your oil will look as good from the day it arrives until you've used the last drop!

Waking Up Joy Blog Tour

Waking Up Joy by Tina Ann Forkner

About The Book:
Joy’s meddling brothers and sisters seems to think Joy Talley did the unimaginable when she is found hanging from the roof, but she didn’t jump. Just because she’s a lonely woman over forty and her momma just passed away doesn’t mean she was finished with life. The truth is, Joy climbed on top of her family’s century old farm house to retrieve something she’d hidden in the old, unused chimney decades ago. She even tethered herself to the chimney with a rope just to be safe, but a lot of good that did her when she really did fall and that dratted rope tangled around her neck. When her brothers and sisters found her hanging like that, they naturally rushed to save her, but by that time Joy was unconscious, at least on the outside. Joy’s siblings, and the man she has loved for decades, have no idea that Joy can hear every word they say as she lays in a coma, even when some of them start planning her funeral. She can’t wait to wake up and give them a piece of her mind, but she doesn’t expect for her siblings to sneak her out of the hospital and to her momma’s funeral where she wakes up in front of the whole town only to be staring straight into her former lover Jimmy’s eyes. Jimmy still makes her heart race, even though he abandoned her decades. As if that’s not already a problem, she was still mad at him for ignoring the tragedy the two witnessed together that was still buried in the chimney back at Momma’s house. Nobody knows about it, except for Jimmy and Joy, but their buried secret is powerful enough that Joy can’t move on until some things are finally settled with the love of her past. Meanwhile, Joy runs into Doc, the younger, hunky doctor who saved her in the ER, only now he’s not her doctor anymore, he’s off duty, and sparks fly. Can Joy love someone new? Joy knows she has not only been sleeping through a coma, but through life, and now it’s time for her to wake up to her future. Much to the disapproval of her overprotective siblings, she comes up with lots of ways to find happiness, but until she deals with her past, her purpose will always be just out of her reach. How will Joy finally move on? Will she embrace the magical and charmed version of life that her Momma left with all her charmed teas, potions, and chocolate? Will she trust someone besides Jimmy with her past? And will she love again, or will she always be in love with the man in her past? Waking Up Joy is filled with family ties that break and bind, amusing escapades and wit, timeless love, and dark truths tempered with joyous moments.

My Thoughts:
Wow, this book packs a punch! So much going on in it! Love, mystery, family relationships, finding yourself, and much more! It is a very intriguing story, and I was hooked the whole way through! Great read!
