Love Is A Four-Legged Word ~ Unleashed Giveaway

Posted on August 31, 2017 in Giveaways

Unleashed is a funny romance, that brings to life a cat & dog.  This movie had me laughing through it, and my dad couldn’t get enough of it.  He’s nearly 70, and me, nearly 42, and we both adored Unleashed.

If you love pets, you will love this movie.  It is the realistic side, of a pet.  This movie is so cute, I couldn’t even take my eyes off the screen.

My mom enjoyed it, as well.  Now my sister, in her mid 40s, says she is going to have to see it.  She can’t get over how much we really enjoyed watching it.

 

Which are you #TeamDog or #TeamCat?  I love both, and I can’t decide.  You really have to see this movie, it’s so great.

Emma, a brilliant but awkward app designer, moves to San Francisco after a massive betrayal by her boyfriend with only her beloved pets, an adorable cat and an energetic mutt, in tow. One night, drawn by the light of a Supermoon, Emma’s pets escape into the night and are transformed into full-grown men, forcing Emma to reconsider her outlook on dating and hilariously work out her trust issues.

‘Back to School’ Anti Cyber Bullying Mentorship Program

Posted on August 30, 2017 in Announcements

A new charity called the “Believe in Yourself Project” (www.believeinyourself.org) is helping to replace the poor body image that afflicts many girls and women. This image is heightened by what the traditional fashion industry deems as beautiful: Women are expected to appear a certain way and live up to a manufactured and unrealistic notion of what beauty is. At the same time, strained finances can prevent many girls from keeping up with what’s trending or cool, making them feel isolated among their friends for not being able to afford clothing that is deemed as “in” socially.

In an attempt to promote a positive body image, founder of online fashion site http://www.ustrendy.com has created the ” Believe in Yourself Project (www.BelieveinYourself.org)

Over the past few years, Sisakhti has grown increasingly concerned with the cyber bullying and body shaming that he has seen online. At the same time, he realized the enormous social pressure that many young girls feel to try to be hip and socially cool by wearing clothing that is seen as stylish. Many girls are unable to afford these fashions and can often feel ashamed socially.

These observations inspired him to launch the Believe in Yourself Project, a foundation that will provide needy girls with dresses for upcoming dances and at same time promote a positive body image through speakers and mentors.

” The aim is to help women feel better about themselves and their physical attributes and to promote healthy self esteem among young girls at an early age, empowering these young women to take on active social roles within their school communities.

Over the past year, Believe in Yourself has given formal dresses to underprivileged high school girls and college students across the country, for them to wear at their school dances. Believe in Yourself reports that many of the girls in the program have had the self confidence to attend their first school dance.

The Believe in Yourself Project is part of a broader initiative and is currently in talks with various influential women who at one time or currently have struggled with body image, encouraging them to serve as speakers and mentors to the various girls within the program.

“We hope to dispel the notion that you need to be a size 0 in order to be beautiful,” says UsTrendy Founder Sam Sisakhti.

This Fall, we will roll out our national mentoring programs which will be a weekly mentorship meetings in various cities across country along with online seminars available to all girls through out the country. The mentorship programs and online seminars will be interactive and open table discussions where influential women will mentor and have discussions with the girls about positive body image and anti-cyber bullying.

Ultimately, the Believe in Yourself Project seeks to make people feel comfortable in their own skin and not let physical or financial insecurities or limitations affect their confidence.

Back To School Snacks for Lunch or Before Bed

Posted on August 20, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

Lunch Time Made Easy

The brands, that were sent to me, are all great.  I’ve never been so happy to receive a package, for my 6 year old son, as I was to receive this package.  School hasn’t quite started yet, but I know he loves these snacks now, so I’ll be picking them up, when we go to the grocery store.

Welch’s new Fruit Rolls went over very well, with Jacob.  He loves anything Welch’s so when I offered him a fruit roll, he immediately took it.  He said, “Mommy, this is so good”.  So, I will be putting one of these Fruit Rolls in his lunch every day.

Fruit is the first ingredient in these Fruit Rolls.  That’s a huge thing with us.  We want Jacob to eat healthy, being that he has a couple heart issues.

 

Go Organically has been a favorite of Jacob’s for a while.  These fruit snacks are delicious.  The best part, you can get a coupon from their site.  Your littles will love Go Organically, as much as my Jacob does.  He always asks for them, by name.

Details of Go Organically can be found on the right side of their page, here.  Including Gluten Free, GMO Free, and USDA Organic.

My 20 year old, daughter, loves The Little Kernel.  She will put it in baggies, and take it to class, at College, with her.  She says that way she’s not making noise opening the bag, and she can portion control.  So I put some in a baggie for Jacob, and he went nuts.  He loves The Little Kernel, just as much as his big sister.  I’ll be sending this in his lunch, too.

You can read “What’s Inside” The Little Kernel, here.

We also received some awesome drinks.

I LOVE Sparkling Ice, and now they have 8 oz cans.  This will be great to send in lunches.  Sarah said she can take it in her book bag, and open between classes.  Ice has been a favorite of ours for a while.  I just couldn’t drink one of those plastic containers though.  There’s so much in there.  These little portion sized Sparkling Ice are great.  The regular bottles have so many flavors, you will definitely find one you love.

 

For the first time, I got to try Brooklyn Organics.  It’s also a great drink.  It’s a craft Ginger Ale, and Jacob was just sick the other day.  We gave him Brooklyn Organics to sip, and he loved it.  He’s not big on Ginger Ale, but he did say it had a “super” taste to it.

 

Then, there’s Aqua Ball.  My daughter loves Ariel, and you can get the Disney Characters on the Aqua Ball.  She says it’s delicious, but she also likes the Princesses, so this is a 2 for 1 deal.

Aqua Ball naturally flavored water is the only zero-sugar, zero-calorie, zero-preservative children’s beverage around. Available in four flavors and featuring fan favorite Disney and Marvel characters, AquaBall is not only fun for kids, but also smart for parents.

Check out all of the products websites listed above.  You will love that packing lunch just got easier.

GourmetGiftBaskets.com has your Back To School Treats All In One Place

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews

I love GourmetGiftBaskets.com.  I was able to find my 6 year old, son, a great back to school gift, for First Grade.  He keeps saying “I’m not going back to school until I’m 14!”  But, we just keep telling him it doesn’t work that way.  So, I came across the cutest Back To School Basket, through GourmetGiftBaskets.com, that I just had to get him.  Even though school doesn’t start here, until August 28, I let him open it, but told him that he has to go back to school in order to be allowed to open it.

When he saw the Teddy Bear, in the Back To School Bear Hug Care Package,  he got an immediate smile on his face.  He fell in love.  If there was a way that I could send the teddy bear to school, without the other kids picking on him, I would.  It would probably ease the first day jitters.  However, I take him back and forth, so I can put it in the car, and have it in his car seat when he gets picked up.  He also enjoyed all the treats, in the basket, and even shared some with us.

There was a lot in the GourmetGiftBaskets.com basket.  More than I expected, and that’s the truth.  It was so cute.  Packaged all up, and he tore into it, as soon as it was dropped off.

The 12 inch Cookie Cake is really great too.  I’m thinking about sending one to Jacob’s new teacher.  I’m sure it would be appreciated.  And, she is going to have enough kids in her class, that she could probably use a nice treat, during her lunch.

There are also plenty of other treats, not just for Back To School, that are available on their site.  Click above, or below, to check out their goodies.

Legacy Brush for that extra close shave

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

I love Legacy Shave Evolution Brush.  I put it on my shave cream can, as soon as I received it.  It gets the cream all up and where it needs to be.  It takes shaving to a different level.  It’s the ultimate shaving tool.  I use it for my legs every time I shave.

The Legacy Shave Evolution Brush will bring you close shaves for a long time.  It makes shaving so much smoother.  The shaving cream really gets close to your skin, and there’s no mess all over your hands.  I find this amazing.  I have always hated shaving, but this makes the whole process so much more worth while.

The LEGACY SHAVE EVOLUTION BRUSH offers “The Ultimate Shaving Experience” by stimulating and lifting the hair follicles allowing the users an enhanced experience with the cleanest, closest shave possible. It also reduces the amount of shaving cream or gel used, saving the users money. Most important, it makes shaving fun again. It is the first universal brush attachment for both foam and gel shaving cream cans. It gives a more elegant shaving experience: hands free of foam or gel.

There are a lot of different colors you can order Legacy Shave Evolution Brush in, including Camo.  We love the Camo one.  And, even though I did receive one for review, I ended up buying 2 more.  There are 3 people that shave, in our home, and once I tried the Legacy Shave Evolution Brush, I needed to make sure we all had this comfort.

Your Dishes deserve Dish Fish

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

Dish Fish is amazing.  I love the technology.  The sponge stays cleaner longer, and I don’t have to worry about built up bacteria.

From heavy duty tasks like pots & pans to delicate surfaces like glass & stove tops, there is a DishFish for you.

The Powercell Technology in the Dish Fish Scrubber is everlasting.  But, my favorite part is how it stands up, so it can dry more properly.  You can clean cutlery, thanks to the gills, without having to worry about cutting yourself.  I love how my spouse cleaned the grill with it, brought it in, rinsed it, and Dish Fish was as good as new.  You couldn’t even tell he cleaned a greasy surface.

My Dish Fish Scrubber is going on 3 weeks old, and still looks like it was purchased yesterday.

Then, there’s the Dish Fish Dual.  It’s also amazing.  Dual sided scrubber & sponge for the toughest messes.  With the shape of the Dish Fish, you can put his front end in first, and get into deep spots.  Making it so every inch of your dishes, and pots, are clean.  The Dish Fish Dual is fabulous at cleaning up wet messes.  It soaks up into the sponge, and stays there, until you ring it out.

If you have a child in College, I suggest getting the Dish Fish for them.  They will be able to keep their products clean.  It’s a great little tool to have around.

The Dish Fish also fits perfectly in any hand.  So, this is great for any size person.  My 6 year old loves using it as well.  When I let him do dishes.

I love Melitta!  It’s the best for getting coffee, and for their coffee makers.  I recently got to try the 1 cup Pour Over Coffee Brew Cone & Travel Mug Set.  It’s so great.  It’s so easy to make my coffee, and fast working.  It’s great to have added this product to my cabinet.  It’s easy to get a cup of Joe in the A.M. now.

Now, let’s talk Melitta Coffee.  Their Caramel Macchiato is to die for.  This coffee is so good, that I actually went through an entire bag in 2 days.  I can’t help it.  I love it.  The Caramel Macchiato melted in my mouth.  It has a sweet Vanilla cream taste, along with the caramel.  It’s so good, that I didn’t even share it.  My 20 year old, daughter, would’ve loved it, and I feel so guilty, that I’ll have to order more.  I never knew a coffee to be this delicious, seriously.

The coffee is delicious, and the products are great.  What more can I tell you?  Go now, to Melitta’s site, and check it out.  Link is above and below.  You will love them as much as I do.

John Paul Pet, Your Pet will smell Fabulous

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide pets Reviews

I love John Paul Pet products.  I recently tried the Lavender Mint line.  My dog smells like a million bucks.  This stuff is so great smelling, and it got her so clean.  We usually take Jade to the Pet Store to get a bath, but when I received this line, I had to try it on her, for myself.  She looks so clean, and smells so good.  Better than the groomer could’ve done.

The Lavender Mint Shampoo reduces skin irritation, while it cleanses, calms, and sooths your pet.

How it works:

Tea Tree leaf oil along with Lavender and Mint extracts, combine to soothe skin irritation allowing hot spots to heal.

The Lavender Mint Detangling Spray made Jade so easy to brush.  She has clumps of hair still coming out, so she needed brushed.  This formula made it where she didn’t yelp, while being groomed, by me.

The cats even loved the spray, and you know, normally cats don’t like being sprayed.  I did get them to purr, then sprayed them.  Leaving them smelling fresh, and clean.  I love the smell of Lavender Mint.  My entire house smells good.

How it works:

Thirteen Conditioning Agents including Oatmeal, Chamomile, Sweet Almond Oil, and Panthenol combine to coat and penetrate strands to release tangles.

John Paul Pet has so many products, and I’m sure there is one right for your pet.  Whether it be a dog, cat, ferret, bird, et cetera.  You will find what you need at the John Paul Pet Online store.  The prices are great, and the products really work.
