Design Evo Logo Maker Software Review (Pearl Mountain Technology)





I reviewed Design Evo, logo making software from Pearl Mountain Technology. I was not compensated in product or money for the review.

Design Evo is a free logo-making website. The website has both free and premium items. You can design a logo with or without creating an account. If you create an account, you are able to save your creations for future use. You can sign up with your email or connect to Facebook.

I used the software to create the logo for Perfect Chaos. The software was easy to use. It was great going through the different elements and piecing together a logo. You can create a design from scratch or use a premade templates and customize it.

For my logo, I incorporated Perfect Chaos into text. I also added puzzle pieces because my children have Autism. I also added a figure, who is frustrated, because many days, I am frustrated with trying to hold it together as a woman, a mom, a daughter, a friend, etc. I finally put a heart around the whole design. I chose blue as the background for Autism. The blue also popped against all the chosen elements.

With the premade logos, you can choose from different categories, such as food, abstract, sports, fashion, childcare, and medical.

You can choose from different background colors, shapes, fonts, and icons to piece together a logo for your business or even your blog. The icon section has millions of images to search through, using the search bar or popular searches.

I received Alana Mitchell's travel foam cleanser sponge, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.





The sponge can be used for an exfoliant, a cleaner, or a mask. The sponge contains Aloe, kaolin,  and vitamin e..

The sponge contains foam, which is activated by water. You can use the sponge to clean your face for a quick clean or leave the foam on your face for 10 minutes for a deeper clean.

The sponge removed a lot of dirt after the first use. I been using the sponge this week and I am impressed with the results. I wish the sponge was a bit bigger though but it did clean my face well. I used the sponge as a mask first. My face was brighter. The sponge also had a nice layer of dirt, removed as well.

The sponge is disposable after a few uses.

The Terry Treetop Collection Book Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.




I read The Terry Treetop Collection, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The book was written by Tali Carmi and illustrated by Mindy Liang. I received the e-books.

I have read and reviewed Terry Treetop books before. The books have great illustrations and easy-to-read text. The storylines are simple and easy to understand. I wanted the books to "read" to Kalen,

Kalen is one of those kids, who want you to read to him, but doesn't care for what the actual words. He loves the pictures and wants to identify things in the pictures. He flips the pages and repeats the same process. The beauty is, he is absorbing words, he may use later on. I have no clue how many words he knows.

Kalen loved the images in the book. He had flipped through most of the book on my kindle, before I started reading the book for myself. How did he know how to use my kindle, let alone flip through an e-book---the world may never know.


You can purchase the book, using the link above. The book is available in hardback, paperback,  kindle, and kindle unlimited format.

Unsinkable Faith Review (Litfuse)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.





I read Unsinkable Faith, in exchange for honest review from Litfuse. The book was written by Tracie Miles. The book is Christian-based.

The book is about having unsinkable faith, no matter what you are going through. If we are down, we need to think positive, instead of letting our troubles take our peace and joy.

This is something, I seriously need to work on. I overthink.about my problems and concerns. I am a mostly negative thinker. I am a single parent of two, special needs kids. Let that sink in. My days are filled with doctor appointments, meltdowns, and struggles over food..

In the past few weeks, my oldest broke the tv and started sleeping back in the bedroom. My laptop died. The wifi has been lagging so I can't blog, listen to music, or watch a show without many pauses. Thank you Amazon on deck for saving me lol.

My youngest has to have his tonsils and adenoids removed to see if it helps his sleep apnea. His heart pauses are increasing. Hit after hit after hit. I need this book.

Miles said we have no control over our circumstances, but we can control our thoughts when we are going through something. We also need to trust God in everything. We don't have to sink. Miles said we don't sink when God is our anchor.

You can buy the book using the link above. The book is available in Kindle and paperback format. The book is prime eligible.

Roraima Reclining Foldable Chair Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.




















I received the Roraima Reclining, Foldable, Chair, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The chair is extra wide, comes with a detachable headrest, and has two cup holders. The chair is also very flexible.

I liked the chair for around-the-home use because I have limited seating. I also use foldable chairs to sit in, while I wait at the bus stop for my kids.

My oldest son has taken over the chair during Christmas break. He sits , while he plays on his phone. He has fallen asleep in it.

One drawback was cleaning the arm rests. Since the arms are flexible and easy to move around, it took a few extra minutes and both hands to remove a stain, my youngest caused.

You can purchase the chair on Amazon. The chair is prime-eligible.

Funerica's Pretend Play Table and Sliceable Food Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.









I received Funerica's Pretend Play Table and  Slicable Food in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The table comes with the table, legs, a fake knife, tongs, two plates, and "sliceable food" (velcro on each half). The table can fold into a suitcase/holding case for the food and accessories.

Food choices included tomatoes, lemons,  pears, oranges, eggplant, and bell pepper.

I got this toy for Kalen. He can sit down, play, and give me some peace and quiet for a few minutes. For those, who don't know, my kids are special needs Kalen is Autistic, ADHD, plus he has 6 other diagnoses. I love simple toys, which don't require much assembly or help from mama. I love independent play (so I can clean and cook in peace).

The legs were easy to install and remove when playtime was over. The table only lasted a few days. It was destroyed during one of my oldest's meltdowns but Kalen still enjoys slicing the veggies. I may get him another set once I get paid again since it is reasonably priced on Amazon.

You can purchase the veggies using the link above. The veggies are prime-eligible.

Let the Little People Come Tracts (FlyBy Blog Promotions)

Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by FlyBy Blog Promotions.



I received the Let the Little People Come tracts, in exchange for honest review from FlyBy Blog Promotions. The gospel tracts are designed towards capturing the attention of children. The tracts include pop-up tracts and bracelets, to bring children to Jesus.

I loved the pop-up tracts and the animated tracts. The animated tracts come with a special viewer to read the hidden messages and see the hidden movable scenes within the tracts. The flipabouts were also interesting to do. Each flipabout contains a bible verse. You flip the pages in a certain way to reveal the message. It took me a few tries to get the message right.

With my kids, Brad gravitated towards the silicone bracelet. He loves silicone bracelets. His current and former teachers, plus medical care staff, provides him bracelets as a reward system. I also find him free bracelets online. The bracelets are one way to teach him about Jesus.

Kalen loved the pop-up books.

The tracts were easy to read and understand. I loved the colors and graphics inside the popups, animated tracts, and flipabouts. This is a great way to bring kids to the gospel without too much distraction.


Each sample pack contains 10 of the most popular items. The sample pack may include the following:

Large Floating Flowers Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.





I received Simply Essentials Large Floating Flowers, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The flowers come in a set of four. Each flower is 11 inches. The flowers are available in purple, white, and yellow. I received the purple set.

I love artificial flowers to decorate with or make crafts with.

I used one flower in my Marimo jar. Other uses include weddings, fountains, ponds, or a nice, long bath with floating flowers. Maybe you want a nice centerpiece for your table. Add some led candles(floating or non-floating to help set the mood. I used an led candle to light up my jar.

Pinterest has many boards dedicated to floating flowers used with real and artificial flowers. One pin, which stood out, was a lotus flower with solar lights. Great way to light up water scenery at night.

She's Got the Wrong Guy Review (Litfuse)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affililate Links.



I read She's Got the Wrong Guy, IWhy Smart Women Settle)in exchange for honest review from Litfuse. The book was written by Deepak Reju. The book is Christian-based. Reju discusses how dating is harder for single, intelligent, Christian women.

For me, I was impressed with the title. I have limited dating experiences. I never been big on dating and relationships. I started late in life dating. I focused on grades to achieve my goals to moving as far from Texas as possible, in order to have a life (ended up moving back in 2010. I  married my first boyfriend, even though I saw red flags. I was in college at the time (for the wrong reasons. not the right school for me), when I met him. We got married less than two years later after we married.

The next and last boyfriend, I had was in 2006. The relationship lasted a month or so. I met him, leaving work. He was going in to work and I was on my way to the bus stop to go home. What stood out about him was he was wearing a suit to go clean a stadium.

I just don't grasp the ins and outs of dating. I want to date. I want to be married again one day, but I want to do things the right way. From my limited dating experiences and my former promiscous life, I have seen many red flags, I don't want in my next relationship.

I have noticed not many men want to date a celibate woman, nor do many want to date the promiscuous woman. Many want the option of sex if I decide to enter into a relationship. Even with celibacy, everyone has a different definition. I have talked to "celibate" men, who still wanted the option of sexual activity without the penetration. Reju does a good job explaining how sex has become prevalent in today's society. Even Christians struggle with promiscuity and pornography.

Reju also discusses how women settle for men because they want marriage or motherhood. Women accept red flags to achieve goals. Women also stay in settled relationships, even when the relationship isn't working.  From dating non-believers to dating overly flirtatious men, women settle. Settling and ignoring red flags can affect your morals, values, and faith. When I was younger, I was taught co-habitation and premarital sex was wrong. I was raised these things was wrong, yet engaged in them many times. As I got older, I had to pay for the consequences of my actions, including a more jaded personality. I can sense a red flag approaching and try to shut it down quick. It's like I heard and seen this before, this is not anything new, go away.

The book is a good read.
