Multipart Review

Hey friends! I'm back with a few reviews. On the docket today, I've got a book called Hohenstein by Didi Lawson, Cove Castile Soap, AYL SoundFit Plus Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker and Three Star Lion's Salt and Pepper Shaker!

Please remember that everything I'm reviewing I have received for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest review. Honest is what you'll get m'friends!

First up, let's talk about Hohenstein!! Available HERE on Amazon, this book is a Historical Romance.

I know, I know, Romance Novels are supposed to be steamy and cheezy, but this one is clean, I promise. I mean, there are a couple pretty intense makeout scenes, but nothing thing that would turn a movie PG-13. It was a bit on the quesolicious side, but I mean, what do you expect?
To the reader, the plots are pretty obvious and fairly predictable, but not to the protagonist who is a great person, even if she is oblivious.  I did feel like I was escaping while reading. I didn't EVER feel like it was a chore (trust me, I can't say that about all books!). The only complaint I have (aside from the fact that several times spaces needed to be between words that weren't there) is that everything resolved itself all at once. I'm not going to tell you how because I think it's worth reading, but I was flustered at how cleanly and suddenly everything was fixed. The actual answer to the problem made me happy,  I just wished that there was a way it could have been a little smoother. #hohensteinbook

Next up, Cove Castile Soap. Available here on Amazon. I am totally LOVING this soap!!

I purchased a different brand of Castile Soap for another review and I liked it and all of it's uses, but this time I have learned so much more and already had plans in store for this bottle! The first thing I had planned was face wash, which, admittedly I haven't made yet because it means going to the store for the proper bottles to put them in. This is the recipe I plan on using.
I did, however, make hand soap and foamy soap right away!
I'd also like to try this recipe for face wash wipes, but I'm not sure I'll ever get all the ingredients together at the same time. My favorite thing about Castile Soap is that there are no artificial colors orescents in it, so it's safe for my kids, who are uber-sensitive to petroleum to use. You can clean with it, too!! I'd like to try making this liquid laundry detergent. You can also use it to wash your floors. Just remember to NEVER mix Castile Soap with vinegar as it makes a mess. #CoveCastileSoap

We're not done! I can't wait to review this AYL SoundFit Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker. Buy it here on Amazon.
I have been wanting to review a BlueTooth speaker FOREVER!! My kids love audiobooks, but my phone's speaker isn't loud enough in the car for the kids to hear in the back and for some reason or another, using the cord to use the car's speaker's doesn't work with my phone. This speaker work's beautifully- for my husband's phone with Audiobooks and for my phone with Pandora.  For some reason, though, the book I'm listening to gets chopped up when transferring. Not sure why that's happening since my husband uses the same app I use (OverDrive) and has had ZERO problems. And, like I said, Pandora sounds beautiful from my phone! We haven't tried it with hubby's yet. #AYLSPEAKERS

Last, but not least, Three Star Lion's Salt and Pepper Shakers. Buy them HERE on Amazon.
Funnily enough, Pink Himalayan Salt was the first thing I put in mine as well! These are nice and sleek. The top has a lid that you just pop off and then you can adjust how big or small you want the grain to be. There is something SO gratifying about hearing that grinding sound as you turn the tube around. I'm very happy to have these. They are already and asset to our family! #saltandpeppergrinderset
