enevu CUBE Mood & Utility LED Light

I received this free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

Enevu CUBE Mood & Utility LED Light is a great small alternative to bulky lanterns and lamps. This light is very compact and lightweight at only 2" and 3.42oz! It has 3 primary modes: White Light, Color Changing, and Emergency Flash. The white light mode has 3 brightness levels: low, medium, and high. The diffusor makes the light have an even and glare-free shine. The color changing mode slowly cycles through a mesmerizing rainbow spectrum of light and can be locked onto a certain color if desired. Goes from Blues to Greens to Yellows to Oranges to Reds to Pinks to Purples and then back again. The white light can be run for up to 100 hours and is up to 100 lumens of brightness. The SOS emergency flash mode runs for up to 48 hours and serves as a bright flashing beacon when in distress. Enevu CUBE is perfect for both indoor and outdoor settings. It can be used for a multitude of purposes and in many places and is a perfect light, lantern, and flashlight. It even is splash proof with IPX4 water resistance and engineered for toughness and advanced applications. The CUBE consists of the LED base and detachable diffusor. The base alone can be used as a strong spotlight. The base with the diffusor makes the light more like a lantern. It comes with 3x AAA alkaline batteries & a hanging hook and is also compatible with rechargeable batteries.

Teela reading by enevu CUBE Light.

Our Thoughts:
Enevu CUBE is very handy to have around the house and where ever you go. I wish I had more than one because my kids have spirited it away for themselves. They love it and so do I!

It is powerful at its highest setting and this we found is great for many applications. My daughter Teela loves reading books or her Kindle Paperwhite well past bedtime and this is great for doing so in the dark. It is a great book light! We also love this bright white light setting for a flashlight with or without the diffusor. My small old kitchen doesn't have a lot of light at the moment and so I use the CUBE's brightest setting when I am cooking and reading ingredients from my many recipes. This would also be very helpful to brighten a room in power outages.

Some of the other settings are great for other things. My other daughter Zari loves having a nightlight on while she doses off to sleep. The CUBE can be set on the lowest white light setting, cycled through the colors, or set on a certain color for an ambient light that helps keep the monsters away. This ambient soft glow is also great for setting the mood for a romantic dinner or yoga/meditation session. I love using it for when I need a relaxing spa day at home instead of candles.

We are going to have fun using this also for camping, cave spelunking, boating, hiking, backpacking, orienteering, Scouts, etc. in the great outdoors! I love that it is durable, packable, and splash proof. Also, with the emergency flashing mode you can be prepared for anything! This is so much fun to take on trips, vacations, and outings. I highly recommend getting more than one of these because they are so useful!

BUY IT
You can purchase the enevu CUBE for $24.95 on Amazon. They also have other colors (cyan, fluo pink, and black) you can choose from for the base besides white.

365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids Review and Giveaway


I received this book free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

Kathryn Slattery is most well known for her role as contributing editor for Guideposts Magazine. She is also an author to many books, including: If I Could Ask God Anything, My Friend Jesus, Heart Songs, Lost & Found, Grandma I’ll Miss You, The Gospel for Kids and The Grace to Grow. Her newest book is 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids.

365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids Book

365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids is a hardcover devotional book for kids that answers questions about God, the Bible, and faith. It has 392 pages and it is a small manageable 8"X9" size. This year long daily devotional book helps parents answer these sometimes difficult questions in a way that children will understand. It references Bible scriptures throughout to cover these theological, historical, and faith topics as well. This will cover these as well as Christian traditions, the historic growth of Christianity, how to become a Christian, and what it means to be a Christian in today's world. It also has a helpful index of questions in the back to help you find the question and date easily that includes the following topics: time; God; God’s promises; Jesus; God’s Holy Spirit; the Bible; the Old Testament; the New Testament; Christianity; prayer; the Church; Christian seasons, holidays, and traditions; being a Christian here and now; and eternity. These devotionals can be read on their own at any time, and many include a "Want to know more?" cross-referencing section at the bottom of the devotional for the extra-curious child who wants to learn more. Recommended for ages 7-10 year olds.

A look inside 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids.

What I Thought:
If your kids are as inquisitive as mine then you might appreciate this devotional. It starts in January and ends in December, covering all 365 days of the year. The 392 pages are loaded with information. Each devotional has a month & day, title question, a scripture, a reading to answer the question, a prayer, and sometimes a "Want to know more?" cross reference.

I was very curious at what questions this book covered, so I went through it first myself and I am very glad I did. There are a lot of information about holidays and saints that I was not familiar with. I believe this book to be of catholic origin because of those references and the question of "What Does the Word Catholic Mean?". I am christian and LDS and so these things were interesting to me to learn and I would be open to teach my kids about them. But, I also found inconsistencies with some of the answers and my church's religious teachings... like for example the answer about the Trinity. In this book it states that God is made up of three people: God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit; but in my religion we believe that the Godhead/Trinity are three separate beings with distinct roles, but all one in purpose and doctrine. There are other inconsistencies as well so I thought it best to not give this outright to my children to read.

This book is not going to appeal to everyone. I feel that parts of this book were not right for my family. I highly suggest that if you do get this book you read it first as a parent to see if it is right for your family.

Canvas On Demand Premium Thick Wrap Canvas + Coloring Canvas Review #mycanvasondemand

I received this free to facilitate this review.

Canvas On Demand makes it easy to turn your photography or art into something more. They have canvases, prints, and personalized gifts that could make your home one of a kind and unique. The ordering process is so simple too. Canvas On Demand has some wonderful ideas for some fabulous gifts this holiday season!

Their premium wrapped canvases are conveyed to be top quality. These offer a ridged, warp-resistant construction, 1.25"thick wrap, an enclosed back, pre-installed hardware, and an extended 2 year warranty. There are 25 different sizes to choose from too. Learn more here.

What I Thought:
I got to pick out a 16x20 Premium Thick Wrap Canvas and a 16x20 or 16x16 Coloring Canvas. I got to personalize the 16x20 Premium Thick Wrap Canvas with one of my own photography pictures. I picked a picture of my horses grazing in our field with a rainbow overhead that I took in April of last year. I thought that this photo would make a lovely art piece for my wall. I selected the Floral Wolf 16x16 Premium Thick Wrap Canvas with White canvas edge. It is a black and white line art of a wolf made out of leaves, branches, flowers and mushrooms. Here are some FAQ about the Coloring Canvases.

Step 1: Upload Your Image

The ordering process was very straightforward. You click the link that I have below to build a 16x20 Premium Thick Wrap Canvas. Then you click on the Order a 16x20 Premium Canvas button and select your photograph or art to Upload Your Image.

Step 2: Edit Your Item

Then after you select your image and upload it you can Edit Your Item. You can choose different options on this page like: orientation, color effects, edge, size shape. I chose the color blur edge, but there are image, black, and white edges also available.

Step 3 & 4: Choose if you would like a Professional Review or Touch-ups done for extra cost.

After this page you have the option of having a professional review and a retouching & enhancement if needed for extra cost...I did not select these options.

Step 5: Add anything else to your cart you would like, make sure options are correct.

I was also ordering a Coloring Canvas, so I chose out of the many to select and picked out my absolute favorite, the Floral Wolf by Aron Gadd. This suited my love of forest flora and fauna. I love how intricate it is. It will be a fantastic addition to my wall when I am done coloring it. I selected the correct size 16x16, white canvas edge, and I only wanted one. Canvas On Demand recommends BIC Mark-It Permanent Markers in a Fine Point tip which can also be purchased with the Coloring Canvas you choose or separately at an extra cost if you don't have your own set of good markers for coloring on canvas. Then I added that too to my cart.

Step 6: Make sure everything looks good in the Shopping Cart and order.

I looked everything over and made sure that my Shopping Cart looked good then proceeded to Checkout.

You will get an email with your order number, status, and information.

You will put in your shipping and billing information, and email so they can send you an email when they have your order number and tracking information when they ship your package.

With flash you can see the enclosed back of the canvases and the pre-installed hardware.

My package took a little over a week to get to me. The box arrived safely on my doorstep. Both canvases were wrapped really well for the travel to my home.

Look how dark the Canvas On Demand print came out from the original.

When I opened the box up and looked at my photograph that they made into a Premium Thick Wrap Canvas I was surprised and a very disappointed at how dark the colors were. The colors looked washed out, too dark, and the definition is not there with the detail anymore. I wish the colors were brighter and more defined on the canvas. I will have to put a spot light on this to get it to pop like the original does.

Floral Wolf not colored on my wall.

The Coloring Canvas was also sloppily wrapped around the frame so the corners stuck out as well. I love the print of the wolf and I can't wait to color it, but I wish that it was wrapped better. These were not museum quality by any means. Maybe though you will have better luck than me.

The Touch II has Microban antimicrobial product protection. This helps in keeping the tempered glass surface free from stain and odor causing bacteria. This antimicrobial technology won't break down for the life of the scale and works to keep the scale's surface cleaner, 24/7 around the clock.

It has touch sensitive technology. Two touch sensitive buttons: Tare button subtracts the container weight for the net ingredient weight; Unit button converts between lb/oz, g, fl.oz., ml. The Tare button is also the on/off button if pressed down.

My Thoughts:

The Good
I received the Ozeri Touch II Digital Kitchen Scale with Microban in Red Engine color. I like the color because it fits in with my kitchen decor and this scale looks very modern and sleek. I was very impressed at the size and how thin it was. This scale has very little thumbprint in my kitchen, unlike my older more bulky scales. I like that it fits just about anywhere. When I need it I can just pull it out and use it. With the Microban antimicrobial product protection I am not worried about nasty growies anymore and the whole surface is easily wiped clean with a slightly damp rag or sponge, then wiped dry. It seemed to be fairly accurate when I weighed yams for our Candied Yam recipe and beans for our multi bean soup recipe and the large display is easy to read. I also liked that it can weigh up to 18 pounds as well. It will tell you when the batteries are low with a LO reading and the compartment they are held in is easily accessible without anything extra.

The Bad
The scale I received had problems with its touch screen.  The on/off...which is the same as the Tare button was very finicky. You are supposed to be able to press the on/off/tare button briefly to turn on the scale and press and hold for two seconds to turn it off. It would not respond correctly for me and I had to try multiple times to get it to work. I wish there was a third button for the on/off instead of it being the same button as tare then maybe the problem would resolve itself. Also, the batteries are the flat, round lithium type. These are not the kind of batteries I just keep around the house and they are expensive to replace.

Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science Review and Giveaway


I received this book free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science is Pastor of Passion City Church and bestselling author, Louie Giglio's, first-ever children's book. It comes as hardcover devotional book and is illustrated by Nicola Anderson with fun four-color illustrations. Based on Louie Giglio's series for adults called Indescribable and  this book brings the amazing message of God's incredible creation to kids through scientific fact. It lays out the impressiveness of creation with scientific findings, photography, and delightful illustrations. Each devotion includes Scripture, a relevant illustration, a story, a life application, a prayer, and a fascinating science section called "Be Amazed". The "Be Amazed" section includes fun facts to read and science experiments kids can try. Great for ages 6-10.

These 100 devotions encourage wonder at God’s creativity with an in-depth look at...

• Space: Galaxies, Planets, and Stars
• Earth: Geology, Oceans, and Weather
• Animals: from Hummingbirds to Dinosaurs
• People: Our Minds, Bodies, and Imaginations


Inside Indescribable Sneak Peek.

What I Thought:
This devotional is unique and definitely gets you thinking. The science is enjoyable to read about and the topics engaging. I even learned stuff while reading the devotions to my kids! The author does, however, take a very literal view of the Bible which at times can take interesting twists and turns with the "facts". For example the 3rd devotion talks about how dragons were real and mentioned in the bible because of a scripture in Job. This might be stretching it a bit, but the scriptures do make you wonder what they could have been talking about.

The book is very nicely printed. The text is a bit small for my youngest, but still readable. The illustrations are adorable. The full color photos add depth to the awesome facts about science as well.

My kids and I loved reading these devotions and learning about both science and faith. I agree with the author that God is an unparalleled creator with an exhaustive imagination. Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science  This would be a fabulous resource for homeschool, Sunday School, and other Christian Schools/Programs.

Julie Elias A Girl Like Me Album Review and Giveaway


I received this CD free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

Julie Elias is a Christian singer and songwriter who discovered happiness in Christ when being an actress in Hollywood was not making her content. She had fame and appeared in shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “CSI:NY”, but she was not fulfilled and felt like something was missing. She turned to God to guide her and Christian music became her voice to encourage others with her stories in song. In 2014, she founded Aurora Ministries, a 501c3 non-profit that creates Christian material and events specifically for teen and tween girls. Through music, booklets, blogging, conferences and girls’ events, Julie has been able to share God’s role in her life - even when she didn’t think He was there - and find common ground to inspire young women all over the world.

A Girl Like Me is her fifth studio album. It will be available on all digital music outlets, including iTunes, on October 27, 2017. This album is a companion to her girls' events and all the original songs on the album have purpose and stories behind them. This album is for women everywhere, regardless of what stage of life. It reminds us all that despite our failures and stubbornness, we need to “still believe a girl like me could be worthy of a King."

CD Track Listing:
  1. Unchained
  2. Only For Awhile
  3. Awaken
  4. A Girl Like Me
  5. Alive
  6. Forgive Me
  7. Lost
  8. Run Away
  9. Here With Us
  10. Wherever You Roam
  11. A Wild Rose (2017 Version) *Bonus track
  12. In the Light *Bonus track

CD, Jacket, & Inserts.

What I Thought:
This CD is so open and candid. Julie speaks from experience with her heart. I love the song Unchained because it shows her giving herself to God and letting Him take her burdens away. She spells out her vulnerabilities and lets Him help her through them because she knows He loves her for just the way she is.

We are all flawed, but God loves us anyway. This CD helps us remember that God is with us and will help us through troubled times. He knows us better than I think we know ourselves and He will forgive us of our failings if we let Him.

I recommend this album. It is so inspiring and wonderful. Julie has a beautiful voice and I hope she makes many more albums to share her feelings and faith with.

Coobie Seamless Bra Review and Coobie Bra Giveaway


US Family Guide provided me with this opportunity and I received this product free from The Coobie Store to facilitate this review.

Coobie Seamless Bras are really the most comfortable and supportive bras I have ever tried. I received a Coobie V-neck Lace Trim Bra in Red Velvet. I am so glad I got to try these bras because I absolutely love them! I am definitely going to buy more. They have sold me on their products. I was skeptical at first about how a one size that comfortably fits sizes 32A to 36D would actually fit me. I am very petite. These bras fit me really well with no sagging or bunching in weird places. I have tried both scoopneck and v-neck with lace trim styles, but my favorite is the lacy one because I love the lovely feminine touch.

These are also very flattering, form fitting, and affordable. Great for maternity, nursing and beyond as the soft, high quality nylon/spandex outer fabric gently stretches, breathes well and isn't at all see through. You can easily breastfeed in these because you can unhook the strap and pull the bra down. Also great for everyday wear, sleep wear, workout wear, yoga, and Pilates. Available in both neutrals, fun colors, and patterns (7+ styles and 50+ fashion colors and patterns)! The back is smooth and seamless with no hooks or clasps. Each bra has removable pads and the straps are adjustable. You can even call them for extra pads or straps. These bras are also available in a full size version fitting up to a size 42D.

SmitCo LLC Light Up #Unicorn #Diary & Secret Invisible Ink Pen Set Review #Girls #Tweens #Journal


I received this free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

SmitCo LLC has several different diaries with lock and keys and other diary sets in fun themes, Scrapbook sets, several different nail art sets to provide hours of fun, 3 unique princess dress up sets, and jewelry and jewelry sets in: rose gold, gold or rhodium plated, as well as very popular beaded  stretch sets for little girls. These are all affordable gifts for girls ages 2 to 12. Great for birthday or Christmas gifts.


The Light-Up Unicorn Journal has a rainbow colored unicorn on the cover with the words "be magical!". The cover also has small twinkling LED lights that light-up and change color when the front is pressed in a certain spot. This diary comes with a pen that writes in invisible ink so that the messages can be kept secret inside. It also has an attached pink satin ribbon with a sparkly book marker connected to the top so that the page can be saved. The pen also has a switch on it that turns on a blue light on the end to show what was written with the invisible ink. This journal is 8.5 x 5.5 x 1 inch with 80 double sided lined pages. Batteries are included. Takes 3 alkaline batteries in the pen and 1 lithium metal battery in the light up book. Recommended for ages 6 and up.

Features of the Unicorn Journal:
  • The picture on the cover lights up with LED lights to enhance the image
  • It comes packaged in a sturdy box to protect it during shipping​​
  • The "Unicorn" theme of the journal is very popular with young girls
  • The diary has a pink satin ribbon page marker so that the owner can know where she last recorded her secrets​
  • The diary set includes an invisible ink pen with a blue light on the other end which will show what she's written
  • The diary has 80 double sided lined pages which should take her a while to fill up with her notes
  • It has a hard cover to protect the notebook for years to come

Dual Purpose Pen: 
  • One side has an invisible ink pen
  • The other side has a tiny blue light with alkaline batteries to show what has been written

Zari trying out the invisible ink pen.


Our Thoughts:
This special journal is not your average everyday diary. It has some really neat features. My daughter Zari really loved the twinkling lights and majestic unicorn on the cover. She also loved that it came with a pen with ink she could write with inside it and others wouldn't see what she wrote because it was invisible unless under a black light or the light of the pen itself. We did find that the pen's light is fairly faint because we could hardly make out what was written with it on the pages. You can use a regular pen, but that kind of defeats the purpose of  Also I do want to say that if you take the PUSH sticker off of the product you need to remember where it was so that you can press the correct area so that the lights illuminate and press firmly there to activate.

Here is a video I made of the key features...


This will keep Zari busy putting her thoughts and doodles down on paper. She can't wait to personalize it and make it her very own. I hope this will be something she looks back to fondly when she is older.

The Light-Up Unicorn Diary is perfect gift for girls ages 6 and up. I highly recommend journaling as an activity to keep ones thoughts, creative expressions, doodling, sketches, stickers, daily events, notes, dreams, secrets, writing, coloring, poems, drawings, devotionals, prayers, etc. This journal is perfect for keeping the written portion of it safe from prying eyes of siblings, friends and even Mom and Dad!
