FashionMia: Stylish, Trendy Dresses For All Occasions!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

I remember my mom forcing me to wear dresses as a child. I hated dresses, but sure enough I was in some hideous dress in 9 out of 10 of my childhood picks. As I’ve grown older, I’ve begun to like wearing dresses. I’d even go as far to say I love them.  However, I prefer Cute dresses compared to those awful ones I wore as a child and FashionMia is my one stop shop! They have dresses for every occasion!

Looking for the perfect church dress?  Check out this stunning professional floral dress. I love the pink and black coloring paired with a waistline belt. It’s perfect for church and could even be worn as office attire!

Speaking of office attire….This dress is simply stunning! I love the solid black paired with the vibrant red. The bow adds style  and makes it all come together!

Looking for something to liven up date night or a night out on the town? Look no further! You might even find the perfect little black dress!

One thing I was really impressed with is their collection of  Trendy plus size clothing. This definitely makes them superior to all others as their collection has so much more to offer!

Disaster Falls: A Family Story by Stephane Gerson {Book Review}

Disclosure: I received the following for review purposes only. All opinions remain my own and weren’t influenced. My opinions may differ from others as well as those of the author and publisher.

 

Synopsis:

“On a day like any other, on a rafting trip down Utah’s Green River, Stéphane Gerson’s eight-year-old son, Owen, drowned in a spot known as Disaster Falls. That night, as darkness fell, Stéphane huddled in a tent with his wife, Alison, and their older son, Julian, trying to understand what seemed inconceivable. “It’s just the three of us now,” Alison said over the sounds of a light rain and, nearby, the rushing river. “We cannot do it alone. We have to stick together.”

Disaster Falls chronicles the aftermath of that day and their shared determination to stay true to Alison’s resolution. At the heart of the book is an unflinching portrait of a marriage tested. Husband and wife grieve in radically different ways that threaten to isolate each of them in their post-Owen worlds. (“He feels so far,” Stéphane says when Alison shows him a selfie Owen had taken. “He feels so close,” she says.) With beautiful specificity, Stéphane shows how they resist that isolation and reconfigure their marriage from within.

As Stéphane navigates his grief, the memoir expands to explore how society reacts to the death of a child. He depicts the “good death” of his father, which reveals an altogther different perspective on mortality. He excavates the history of the Green River—rife with hazards not mentioned in the rafting company’s brochures. He explores how stories can both memorialize and obscure a person’s life—and how they can rescue us.

Disaster Falls is a powerful account of a life cleaved in two—raw, truthful, and unexpectedly consoling.”

 

My Thoughts:

It’s really hard to rate a book that has so much pain and truth behind it. How do you actually rate how someone pours their pain out to the public? Honestly, this book doesn’t need a rating it all. It touches readers deep down and really makes you think about the small things. While the book can’t be rated in stars, it definitely can be rated by how readers react to the book and how it made them feel.

Personally, I think losing a child IS the absolute hardest thing any parent can go through. My baby girl is 8, but I can’t imagine my life without her. Reading this book made me want to grab her and hold her tight, never letting go. Every second is a blessing and this book really drills that fact home. It unveils how tragedy can come in and tear everything you know apart within seconds. It  shows you how people deal with grief and loss differently.

This by far is one of the hardest books I have ever read. Not because it’s written horribly or even that it lacks. It’s simply due to the heart felt, tear jerking, brutal honesty that the book offers. It will send you into a whirlwind of emotions and put you deep in thought. It will make you think about every day decisions that you make. It will have you reconsidering  those risky things we allow our kids to do just because we need to let them “grow up”. It will have you look at your kids, spouse, and life with a whole new perspective.

I found it to be a heartfelt read and would definitely recommend it to others along with a box of tissues.

Purchase It!
