Bonding over Beauty Review and Giveaway

"Bonding over Beauty by Erika Katz is a great mother-daughter beauty guide to foster self-esteem, confidence, and trust."  
Mom's with daughters this book is perfect for you!!!  :)   I thought that this book would remind me of the things I knew already about beauty but wow my eyes have opened up to so many new ideas!  :)  
Here are the topics in each chapter that you will get to read about:
1. Bonding over Her Hair
2. Bonding over How She Cares for Her Skin
3. Bonding over Makeup & Brows
4. Bonding over Her Hands & Feet
5. Bonding over Getting rid of Unwanted Hair
6. Bonding over Puberty & Hygiene (Yes, it can be done!)
7. Bonding over Nutrition & Fitness
8. Bonding over Aromatherapy to Feel Beautiful
9. Bonding over Getting Her Ready to Be Away from Home

I know I still have a few years before my daughter enters the tween years but I am so looking forward to discussing and creating new memories using the many ideas in this book.  I am one excited mom that I know my daughter and I can create fond memories while learning how to care for the beautiful bodies that Christ gave us.  

In the caring for skin chapter I was delighted to read a few different recipes for sensitive skin as my daughter has sensitive and very dry skin.  It really is helpful to know what not to do for those skin types!  I also was shocked that I have been told so many myths about beauty, such as it really is OK to shave many different areas because your hair WILL NOT grow back thicker or darker!!  Trust me there are several other myths that we have been told that will make you wonder who started telling us these silly myths.  

I know this book covers the beauty end of it and when my daughter is older to discuss these things I will use this book along with the help of God to remind her who she is in CHRIST JESUS!    I do not want to teach her the beauty things unless it is done with Biblical principles at the same time, as true beauty is from within.

Bonding over her hair! I am not a girly girl and definitely not good at doing hair, it might be a fun chapter to take some of the frustration out of it for me!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
