I’m not normally a late shopper when it comes to the Holiday months and try to get all my Christmas shopping done in a timely manner to beat the crowds and the mail man.  But, I know that life happens sometimes and it can be a difficult thing to get your shopping done in time to make the Christmas rush.  While we are less than a week away from Santa stopping by our houses, I wanted to share with you a few quick buys for those on your shopping list.  While presents to open under the tree or gift cards and money are great, let’s not forget the people in our lives that love to read.  What’s so awesome is that the Kindle books offers so many gift giving ideas… simply at the click of a button.  The receiver can easily download their selection and enjoy their read on the go or at the comforts of their own homes.  Here are a few books that I have added to my reading list for myself and my husband as well as my boys.

Clean Food Diet

What better way to start the new year with some clean eating.  This book includes 50+ natural recipes for healthy living.  Now, don’t get me wrong… I’m not turning Vegan on you… I love my animal friends but giving up my carnivore ways are just impossible, but at least I can incorporate some of these healthy recipes into my diet. The Clean Food Diet by Jonathan Vine offers a variety of recipes for your heart’s desire.


Terry Treetop and the Lost Egg is the perfect adventure and educational book for your child(ren) between the ages of 2 and 6.  This book is about a little boy with red hair and freckles who loves to climb trees.  He goes on a little adventure and takes your children along with him.  Filled with photos and stories, this is the perfect book for your preschooler and includes rhyming text as well.


Have you heard of Ally Nathaniel?  Ally is a children’s author who has published 10 books via Amazon (ebooks).  Her books include a wide range of subjects for Toddlers and Preschoolers as well as elementary school children.  Some of her books talk about Self-esteem and self empowerment as well which makes it great reading for your littles.  The selection she has is great and I highly recommend checking out what she has available.


If you have been a reader of my blog for a while now, you know that my husband experiences severe back pain after an injury.  To try to help with the pain so that he doesn’t have to have surgery on his spine, we are always looking for alternative solutions and the Low Back Pain Program by Sherwin Nicholson offers some techniques that can be used to help relieve pain.  In this book you can learn how to self treat chronic lower back pain easily and safely.  This guide is designed to carefully teach you the correct methods to move, train and strengthen your body to properly relieve your back pain.  While I suggest that you first discuss with your physician before any treatment, I definitely think giving this a look see will be beneficial – especially at its price point.


The Paleo Kid is one of my absolute favorite ebooks, offering 26 easy recipes that I can incorporate into my families diet and making the transition easy peezy for the children. This book includes Gluten Free recipes which make it great for those that are on a Gluten Free diet and the recipes are easy to make.  Kid Tested Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snack meals that are not only great for your kids but the entire family.

The list on my kindle is ever growing but I wanted to share a few books that I have recently added to my reading list and a few that I have loved this past year.  While this list is small, I wanted to offer ebooks that I know would be great for families alike.  I will be sure to share more of these in the coming months but for now, if you are looking for some ideas for last minute Christmas / Holiday gifts, give these a try and see if they are something you’ll enjoy.  Happy Holidays!

Makeup by One Direction Mascara

The Electro Glam Mascaras come in three very bold shades.  This trio of goodies can be used on your hair or lashes and offer a high pigment color payoff with buidable colors.  Use these shades to bring a bright coat of color to your lashes or use on your hair in small sections to add some funky and fun Electric highlights.

Makeup by One Direction Mascara

Colors in this set include:  Shock of Blue, Pinkest Hot Pink and Amped Canary Yellow.  For a bright color punch, layer each color to create a bold shade.  Looking to add some color to your hair for a night out or something fun?  Don’t worry – these will wash out quickly and easily.
Liquilights Gloss by One DirectionThe Liquilights Glow Gloss set includes a collection of three sparkly glosses.  These cool glosses illuminate under a UV Black light after the dark offering a cool glow.  They include natural oils and vitamin E to help keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and night.  The gloss is a bit sticky, so you may want to pull your hair back when using it.
Liquilights Gloss by One DirectionKiss You is an orange glitter gloss that glows neon yellow under the UV light, Taken is a Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to a neon orange under UV light and Through the Dark is an electric glitter poppy shade that glows to a neon red-orange under the UV light.
Liquilights Gloss by One DirectionThe doe foot applicator for these glosses are awesome.  They are flat and make it easy to apply with a full punch of color in one swipe.  Like I mentioned before, I am not too fond of the sticky from the glosses, but I think these are great for those just starting in makeup or looking to add some fun when out at the club.
Rock Me Nail Kit Makeup by One directionThe Rock Me Nail kit includes three UV Reactive Nail Kits and three UV Reactive glitter nail toppings.  After painting your nails, simply sprinkle some of the glitter over your wet nail polish for a subtle or over the top fabulous look.  You can dip your entire mani into the glitter for a huge amount of glitz and glam.Polish/Varnishes include:  Happily – UV iced blue glitter, Moments – UV neon pink and Diana – UV 3D holographic.
Glitter Toppings include:  Kicks – UV snow cone blue, Not afraid – UV electrified pink glitter and Star – UV holo glitter.Overall, if you are shopping for that teen makeup lover in your life, I think these would be fun and a great addition to their growing makeup collection.
If you have One Direction fans in your family, this would be a great gift for them.  Don’t forget that each set is limited edition so you will want to get your hands on them before they are gone.
