So you signed up for #KindleUnlimited … Now What? #amreading #free #kindle #books

Recently I’ve begun looking at what books are available on Kindle Unlimited. I don’t have the service myself yet, but I’ve been thinking about it, because all you can read for $10 a month is pretty awesome…IF the selection is good. That’s when I decided to start Free Kindle Unlimited Books. (If you hop over there, you’ll find some books I’ve already spotted that are part of the Kindle Unlimited program.) Today I’m going to share with you the next batch of books I’ve browsing through from the service. If you have read any of these, I would love to know what you thought of them!

Haven’t Heard of These #Kindle #Books ? How Not?! #amreading

I’ll admit, I’m a Freebie/99cent book hoarder. It’s a lot easier to take a chance on a new-to-me author when I don’t have to invest a lot to do so. But the flip side is, authors put a LOT of time into writing their books, and many have to work multiple jobs on top of that or their bills would never get paid, so they decide (or their publisher decides) to charge what the book is worth. Well, here’s a few books that even at full price are STILL worth more than the buying price. Enjoy!

Traditionally Published Titles:

Why I Switched to #NonToxic #GlutenFree #Vegan #skincare & #haircare products

Today I’m going to tell you why I chose to use Non Toxic Products…AND how to get a FREE Gift DIRECT from ME for buying things you were going to buy anyway!

2467f2f1b377e2a40592e3c530d0f17cIt’s no secret that I love natural products, but the truth is, they tended to be too expensive and too hard to find. Who wants to have to buy one thing from one store, and another from another, and another from another? Not this girl! (Which is also why I mostly shop on Amazon…) But the natural products I was finding there were either overpriced, not as natural as I wanted, or…just didn’t work. So one day my friend, knowing I was on the hunt for a vegan mascara (for my mom, actually, as mascara really irritates her eyes), sent me a note saying she found a product line I should check out. All the products are Non Toxic, Gluten Free, Vegan, Cruelty Free, and NOT tested on animals. So immediately I thought “Then they must not work” (What can I say? I’m a skeptic…) Also, because my friend was selling the product, I admit to the initial reaction most people have…which is to not buy it. Even though it was basically exactly what I was looking for >.<

She didn’t bring it up again, but one day late at night I got bored and decided to head over to the site. As I started browsing through and reading all that they had to offer (skin care, hair care, baby care, home care, men’s shaving gel, make up, toothpaste, pet care, garden care…on and one), I immediately thought…well, this could make things easy. I opened up a little bit to the idea. Started reading the ingredients and I was impressed! (Let’s face it, how many things do we buy that water is the FIRST ingredient listed? It’s like all we do is buy water with other things added to it.) Any, I noticed, for example, that the main ingredient in their deep conditioner was aloe vera. They use essential oils as ingredients in their products (and you can not believe in them all you like, but I’ve seen them work too many times to deny they do). Anyway, long story short, the ingredients seemed awesome, the prices were right, and they had things I needed, so I figured…why not try it.


Yep. All this time I was asking myself “Why should I try it?” and it ended up coming down to “Why not?” (Doesn’t it always?) I mean REALLY, why NOT? The price was right, it’s all natural, AND THESE WERE THINGS I WAS GOING TO BUY ANYWAY. So why buy chemical-laden products if I didn’t have to? (Did I mention the money back guarantee on their items? Yeah, seriously, NO risk involved here. I had to do it…)

2960086So I placed an order…which arrived two days later! Now I was really happy because Amazon Prime spoils me, so I like my lightening fast shipping and even a week feels like eternity to me. So, with the skepticism still running high, I tried it. Their make up first (BB cream and mascara and lip gloss). I’ll do a few review on those items specifically down the line, but overall, I was impressed. And even happier when I woke up the next day and still had clear skin! (Make up always makes me break out.) Ever since, I’ve tried a few more products, and there is not a SINGLE product I’ve been unhappy with yet. (The Make Up and Kids Wash/Toothpaste/Diaper Cream are my faves!) Next on my list, the cleaning products.

I’ll be reviewing the products individually over time, but for now, I just had to share, because I’m in LOVE. Enough so that I decided to go all in and “Back” this brand. If you want to check it out for yourself, you can head over here to learn more.

Like what you see? I have free gifts for EVERYONE who checks out with Party Code 78464. You’re going to LOVE these products! Happy shopping!
