Canvas Pop Giveaway & Review

A while back I was contacted by the kind folks at CanvasPop if I would be interested in reviewing their product. I was so excited because I was about to order a print for our living room using another resource. I had never personally used CanvasPop, and had only heard of them vaguely through anther blogger.

Needless to say, I was more than willing to see what their quality was compared to other companies.

The verdict? I am head over heels in love with our print. The colors are vibrant, the canvas is high quality and well made. I was very, very satisfied. Plus, it provided the perfect opprotunity to add one of my favorite portraits of Evie Grace to our living room!

‘The Inn at Ocean’s Edge’ Kindle Giveaway & Review

Inn Ocean's Edge Colleen Coble

I was so excited to find out that I was on tour with "The Inn at Ocean's Edge" Book Tour thanks to LitFuse. Colleen Coble is one of my favorite authors, and her books never disappoint. One of the main reasons I love her writing so much is that every storyline includes a twist that you never see coming. It's like Murder She Wrote with an even sneakier plot line! Her characters are always unique with funny quips, and yes, there are generally romantic notes woven throughout her stories as well.

"The Inn at Ocean's Edge" was a gripping story of betrayal as we follow the main characters Claire, and Luke. Claire suffers from nightmares, and day terrors which leads her to think something sinister has happened to her in her past. But, when the memories become clearer, she may not be ready to face the greatest betrayal of all. 

Luke who's on leave with the Coast Guard is hoping to solve his mother's murder. But, when fingers start pointing to Claire, he knows something much more horrific has taken place in the woods by his house. 

Written with cunning detail, and unique plot twists, "The Inn at Ocean's Edge" did not disappoint. I highly recommend for anyone that enjoys a good romantic and suspenseful mystery.

My New Blog & Changes...

I started a new blog...

After my last post, the wheels in my head started turning. And turning. I've spent a LOT of time cleaning up this site, and archiving old posts. I've been trying to figure out which direction to take this blog.

I mean, it's been eight years of blogging!

Time to change things up, I think.

Long story short, I decided to devote Mrs. Southern Bride to only my book reviews, and other media related fun. In the mean time I've been busy blogging over at my new site!! Joshuas Girl is an extention of my "social media" nicknames. It'll be the place to keep up with some of our personal life, house projects, and photography. Same 'ol me, just a fresh, more organized slate.

Hope you follow along!

Like Southern Food?

Growing up in the south has given me plenty of opportunities to fall in love with some good 'ol down home cooking. Recipes like fried okra, special casserole's, and anything loaded with butter are the norm. But, with that comes a price...a not so healthy price tag.

When I saw "Lighten Up, Ya'll" come up for review through Blogging For Books, I knew I had to give it a try. I love finding new ways to make favorite recipes healhty. Even better when it takes on a little southern charm.

Filled with beautiful images, and easy recipes, "Lighten Up, Ya'll" would be a good fit for any foodie wanna be or if you just enjoy being in the kitchen. I'm ready to add these recipes into my menu planning rotation!

Many thanks to the kind folks at Blogging for Books for my copy in exchange for an honest review. :)

God's Story in 66 Verses

I requested a copy of God's Story in 66 Verse a while back after reading through a few reviews. It sounded like an interesting idea, plus I enjoy being challenged with my day to day readings of God's word.

I loved the way Guthrie pulled each chapter off without a lot of fluff. He presents facts, scripture, and ties it all together. This isn't a sit down and read it through in an afternoon kind of read. More like a devotional, or Bible study aid than anything. However, the chapters are chock full of information so you walk away feeling like you've learned a lot (a good thing!).

If you are looking for a simple way to challenge your thinking, and to learn or re-learn certain aspects of scripture, this may be the book for you. You can learn more by visiting BookLook Bloggers for information regarding this title and the author.

Many thanks to the author for my copy in exchange for an honest review!
