My Review
Too Blessed to be Stressed for Moms is a book all moms should read, because parenting is not always easy and we all get stressed sometimes. I love Debora M. Coty's writing style. It is like she is having a conversation with you, and the stories she shares from her own motherhood experience and the experience of other mothers is hilarious. She uses a lot of metaphors and bible verses to describe and explain her stories. Her way of writing seems very unique to me since I do not read many books like this. There are questions at the end of each chapter that will help moms "navigate the 'hood", and the chapters are very short which is great for busy moms like me. Too Blessed to be Stressed for Moms is fun to read. I recommend this book to moms who sometimes need a break and reminders that we can handle motherhood even on the craziest days, which is probably all of us. 
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Review: Organic Silkworm Cocoons for beautiful skin

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience

Memoir Organic Silkworm Finger Rub
This year I turned 30 years old. I know I am still very young but ever since my mid-twenties I have been worried about wrinkles. For that reason I have been trying to take better care of my skin. Recently I got the chance to try Organic Silkworm Finger Rub. It is supposed to help with wrinkles, blackheads, whiteheads, and acne scars. When I received the package in the mail I thought it would be strange to rub my face with silkworm cocoons but I have been using them for only one week and I can definitely see a difference in my skin. Luckily I do not have wrinkles yet and I'm hoping that by taking care of my skin now I can keep them away as long as possible. The redness of my skin from acne scars is where I have seen the most improvement. The area around my nose also looks so much better than it did before. I have noticed my blackheads are not as noticeable, and this is just in one week of using these silkworm cocoons! This is amazing since nothing I have tried before seems to get rid of my blackheads. It feels like a gentle scrub for my face and I love how my skin feels after using it. 

It is very easy to use, it only has a few simple instructions

1. Soak Silkworm Finger Rub in warm water for 2~3 minutes until it softens.
2. Cleanse face with cleansing foam or soap.
3. Before rinsing with water, gently massage your face using Finger Rub.
4. Rinse with water. Use twice daily per Finger Rub; once in the morning and once in the evening.

5 out of 5 stars
