Feed Your Pup in Style with Le Bol Dishes from Loving Pets!

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

We recently added a new pup to our family so we needed new food and water dishes for her.  Luckily, Loving Pets came to the rescue and offered us two lovely dishes from their Le Bol collection:


Reminiscent of famous French cookware, Le Bols are gorgeous, extremely durable, stainless steel bowls with a ceramic-like interior. Le Bols also have an integrated skid and noise-free rubber base and are top-rack dishwasher safe.


The bowls featured in this post are Seine Blue and Parisian Grey, but they come in other lovely, bold colors like Bordeaux, Chartreuse and Lilac.  They come in 4 sizes ranging from extra small to large.  These gorgeous bowls make a statement while offering ample space for food and water for your pup.

Book Review: Shadow Girl by Gerry Schmitt

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Shadow Girl by Gerry Schmitt


About the book:
The brutal murder of a business tycoon leaves Afton Tangler and the Twin Cities reeling, but that’s just the beginning of a gruesome crime spree...

Leland Odin made his fortune launching a home shopping network, but his millions can’t save his life. On the list for a transplant, the ailing businessman sees all hope lost when the helicopter carrying his donor heart is shot out of the sky. 

Now with two pilots dead and dozens injured, Afton Tangler, family liaison officer for the Minneapolis Police Department, is drawn into the case. As she and her partner investigate family members and business associates, whoever wants Leland dead strikes again—and succeeds—in a brazen hospital room attack. 

The supposedly squeaky clean millionaire has crossed the wrong person—and she’s not finished exacting her revenge. The case explodes into an international conspiracy of unbridled greed and violence. And as Afton gets closer to unearthing the mastermind behind it, she gets closer to becoming collateral damage...

My thoughts:
Get ready for another chilling Afton Tangler adventure!  Shadow Girl is another action-packed, edge-of-your-seat police tale that keeps you reading till the very end.  If you are a fan of Gerry Schmitt and her previous work, Little Girl Gone, you are sure to love Shadow Girl.

Loved + Blessed: A Christian Faith-Based Subscription Box July Edition

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

We recently had the chance to review the July box from Loved + Blessed:


Loved + Blessed is a Christian faith-based subscription box service that delivers a box of encouragement right to your door each month.


Each box revolves around a central theme and comes with a mini poster, a sticker, a purse-sized scripture card and a gift.

The theme for the July box was Refresh:


The scripture card this month featured Jeremiah 31:25 "I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."


The special gift for July was an aluminum water bottle with a removable carabiner key ring to help you stay hydrated and remind you to seek time with Jesus when you need refreshing:



This box also included an encouragement kit to pass along to a friend:


I definitely think there is room for Loved + Blessed in the subscription box market and I love that their mission is to deliver encouraging products that support a fantastic message!

If that wasn't enough, Loved + Blessed gives a portion of the proceeds of each box sold to Union Rescue Mission, a charity that offers hope and healing to the homeless.  What an amazing cause!

For just $15.99/month + $4 shipping & handling in the US, you can get your Loved + Blessed box or gift someone else with this monthly dose of encouragement today!
