Transform Your Look With Black Hairspray

This is a sponsored post, however all opinions are my own.

Did you know that wigs can be traced back to the ancient times of the early Egyptians. The Egyptians loved fashion and innovation as much as we do, and it can be seen in many ways that certain styles came in and out of fashion.  In ancient Egypt, both men and women used to shave their heads bald replacing their hair with wigs. This was more comfortable in the hot climate and added to social status. Wigs were worn by men, women and children and often a new wig was worn each day varying in style. The wig was also worn as a headdress for special occasions, ceremonies and banquets. Past Kings in France wore them as a fashion accessory as well.

Nowadays, many wear wigs for fashion and convenience. What better way to completely change your look, style or color with no mess, no fuss and no hassle? Why confine yourself to one look when so many are available? At Black Hairspray, you can find a wide range of wigs and hairpieces. Black Hairspray is a beauty e-commerce company that offers thousands of wigs and hair care products. Their many clients range from professional stylists, beauticians, working mothers, students and more.

How CBD Oil Eases My Chronic Pain

 

cbd123

 

I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

Have you heard about or tried CBD oil? It’s very popular right now for treating pain, inflammation, anxiety, sleeplessness, and many other issues. It is available online and also through medical dispensaries. Since I have fibromyalgia with a lot of daily pain impacting my life, I was very intrigued. When an opportunity came along through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network, I was very interested.

In case you are wondering, CBD stands for Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a cannabis compound with significant medical benefits. While it does not make people feel high, it can be pleasantly relaxing.

Clinical and Scientific investigation, much of which is sponsored by the U.S. government, illuminates CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD also has neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being researched at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. Evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses. Some cannabinoids have been synthesized and are prescribed for nausea relief from chemotherapy as well as other ailments.

Roll-ons-2-w-medallions

CBD oil made from the entire hemp plant is readily available online and is legal in all 50 states, as long as the THC level is less than .3 THC on a dry weight basis, thanks to the Agricultural Act of 2014, AKA the “Farm Bill”.

I will admit that I really had no idea what the effects would be so I was happy that my first experience was a topical CBD oil. This way I could easily control the amount and gauge its effects.

I immediately loved the smell of the Premier Biomedical CBD oil which is very uplifting. The roll-on has Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Eucalyptus Oil, Sage and Citrus Essential oils among other ingredients. It honestly smells heavenly!  The Cannabidiol used is of the highest quality and the natural, organic, certified non-GMO inert aromatic ingredient enhancers boost the effectiveness and efficiency of the CBD blend.

The roll-on comes in a convenient, pocket-size applicator which is great to take with me and throw into my bag. It goes on smooth and absorbs quickly. It’s non-greasy and I apply it to wherever I am hurting. I love that it has a ball that you roll on wherever need be and it feels soothing and cooling. Premier Biomedical Pain Management Solutions CBD Roll-On with 110mg of CBD Oil is easily applied directly to the skin, for relief of minor aches and pains.

But enough information, you are saying, tell me how it works! Well, for me, it worked wonderfully. As far as pain goes, I loved it. I could apply it to my lower back, my wrists, my shoulder, wherever I was hurting and the pain definitely diminished. I felt naturally relaxed and slept better.

There is a growing body of evidence that suggests CBD possesses medical potential for natural relief from : knee pain, shoulder pain, joint pain, pain from arthritis, muscle soreness and tenderness, headaches and migraines.

Premier Biomedical also has a pain patch which delivers 4 days of pain relief. The formulations contain no psychoactive components.

All of their pain relief products are opioid-free, and 50-state legal.

So, whether you’re like me and new to CBD oil or whether you have used it before, I highly recommend Premier Biomedical CBD oil. The price is also extremely reasonable as it lasts quite a while.

Life can be stressful enough so why not use something natural to ease your day and allow you to enjoy life to the fullest?

Life is not meant for suffering and stress, but to be enjoyed and shared with those we love.

$50 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash #Giveaway – After the Miracle Book Blast!

 


After the Miracle: The Cody Parmer Story

It was summer, 1999. After a terrible car accident on a rural Idaho road, doctors raced against the clock to save Cody Parmer’s life  His parents, Brenda and Kreg Parmer, prayed that God would save their son and they received a miracle. Months after his recovery, a mysterious new discovery threatened to take Cody’s life once more, but this time the doctors couldn’t fix it. As Cody fought for his life, his mother searched for answers. Why would God let this happen? Would God save her son, just to let him die a short time later? Even if Cody lived, could the family handle his injuries and limitations? Even after receiving a miracle, the strength to accept God’s will would be the greatest blessing they could ever ask for.

Praise for the Book
“Such an amazing story! I read this book cover to cover all in one day. I could not put it down! It is very well-written, and you feel as if you are right there with the family experiencing every part of their incredible journey first hand. I cried through a lot of it but found parts that made me laugh too. When a book can make you do both of those things, you know you’ve found a good one.” Shannon Dooley, Amazon Review

“This is a book about amazing resiliency in the face of the kind of trauma every parent dreads. It’s told with incredible honesty and transparency. But, it’s also a story about struggling faith that grows into a deep belief in the goodness of God even in the face of adversity…” MarSue, Amazon Review

“This book was an inspiring read. Very well written, and a page turner. Cody’s family made it through some impossible odds. You really feel the struggles that they go through as they try everything to get the best results for their son.” Nora, Goodreads Review

 

 

Introduction –
Rick jumped up and started tracing the path backward. He was only a few steps from the truck when he saw the outline of a person lying in the tall brown grass. “Over here!” he yelled to Joe, and they both rushed to the spot, crushing pieces of broken glass in the weeds as they ran.
There, lying only a few yards from the overturned truck, was the outline of a teenage boy. As Rick got closer, his stomach sank. The boy was lying chest down in the grass, his body tossed like a rag doll. His shorts had been torn and his white shirt was covered with a muddy mix of dust and blood. His left arm was lying limp at his side but the other was a mangled mess, broken and twisted around more than once. The skin from the shoulder to the elbow looked like a washrag being wrung out. The broken arm was perched awkwardly in the air, and the hand looked like it was covering his mouth. He stepped closer. No, the hand was in his mouth, shoved into a fist inside his gaping jaws. Rick’s stomach turned as he realized the boy’s head was twisted almost 180 degrees, facing up to the sky, while the body lay chest down in the dirt.
Rick stepped back, he didn’t notice any movement, surely the boy was dead. How could anyone survive something like that? His knees got weak and he shuddered at the thought of being the first to find a dead body. Then he heard gurgling, low and wet, coming from the boy’s chest and mouth.
“He’s choking!” Joe called out, “What do we do?”

Chapter 3 –
Kreg helped me stumble over to the depressing little waiting area. We sat on an old worn out blue couch and stared at the ugly coffee table in front of us. Jeff’s parents, Lyn and Betty Smith, arrived and were allowed to see Jeff for a moment, but then they joined us in the waiting area. We exchanged hugs and cried together, then resigned ourselves to waiting.
Betty was doing about as poorly as I was, and Lyn was trying to comfort her. Betty kept asking questions that none of us could answer. “Who was driving? Do you know who was driving? What happened? Were they wearing seat belts?” Gradually she realized we didn’t have any answers for her and she quietly sank into her husband’s arms.
We sat in silence for what seemed like forever. What do you say to each other when both boys are on the edge of life or death? I began to pray, but nothing was making sense. My thoughts floated between my own questions about the accident, earnest pleas to Heavenly Father, and what Cody was going through all alone upstairs. I hated knowing that Cody was alone up there. If I wasn’t so frozen with fear, I would have stormed right up there, checked every room until I found him, and stayed by his side until it was all over.

 

 

About the Authors
Brenda and Kreg Parmer met in high school in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and fell in love on the night of graduation. Brenda graduated from cosmetology school and Kreg went to work for a farm equipment company, and soon married. They had one son, Cody, and three beautiful daughters. Since the accident in 1999, a major part of Brenda and Kreg’s lives have been devoted to caring for Cody, who still suffers from major limitations. They love being with family, enjoying the beautiful Idaho scenery, and visiting their grandchildren. Along with their family, their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the most important thing in their lives.

If Taya isn’t careful with the way her heart is softening towards Felix, she could be walking into a lifetime commitment of happily ever after that wasn’t in her plans.

 

 

Excerpts

Cinderella: a REAL life fairytale

“Hey, Cindee, before I forget. You have a real nice day.”

I nod with about the blankest expression I’ve ever felt, and then he winks. HE LITERALLY WINKS!

My eyes are as big as I can stretch them.

Either Henry Christensen just did that on purpose, or he has something irritating his eye. I want to go with my first choice, but the second one seems more accurate. I’m the girl with no name, until just now, standing in a huge coat, so it’s gotta be the second choice, right?

“Henry? Is that you?” Priscilla’s sticky-sweet voice interrupts.

He doesn’t speak a word as he presses on the gas to slowly start backing up.

“I’ll stop by the station to pick up the trucks in a while. Make sure you’re there,” he says before quickly pulling onto Main Street where everything disappears, except for the faint glow of his brake lights that blink three times.

Is he saying goodbye? I know other girls back in high school had boys do this to them, but not me. NOT EVER. Not once did a boy tap his brake lights to me. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven.

 

 

Beauty and the Beast: a REAL life fairytale

“Thank you for this.” I whisper into Adam’s ear.

“For what?” He grins.

“For being the kind of man that makes a woman believe there’s a God in heaven.” I nuzzle into his shoulder and close my eyes as the preacher asks us to pray.

Once we finish, the rows of people begin to stand. I wipe under my eyes one more time just to make sure I don’t have mascara running down my face.

 

The Frogg Princess: a REAL life fairytale

“You probably shouldn’t be with a girl like me. I could corrupt a boy like yourself,” I tease, trying to ease the heat flooding my face. How could I push myself on him? I’m cringing inside at being so stupid.

“Nah, I’d happily go as far as you’d allow me,” he softly chuckles. “I just have a promise I made with my brother.”

“A promise?” I narrow my eyes.

“Yeah, we both agreed to wait for marriage.”

I stifle a gasp. Is he for real?
