Last Minute Holiday Gift Idea for Gamers: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare #Ad

Disclosure: I will receive a complementary copy of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in exchange for posting. No other compensation will be received. Any and all thoughts are honest, my own and may vary from yours.





I have always enjoyed playing video games. I've had a special place in my heart for them since day one when I received the original NES as a child. Through the years, it's been amazing to see the technology and graphics become what they have. 

If you are looking for a last minute holiday gift idea for that gamer in your life, check out Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. 

*Please note that this game is rated M for mature*

The game is available for Playstation 4, XBox one and for PC.

MSRP is $79.99 

Award-winning studio Infinity Ward breaks new ground in storytelling in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, by exploring the weight of leadership and the responsibilities that come with it in an emotional, character-driven narrative. Players are thrust into wartime leadership as Captain Reyes, a Tier 1 Special Operations soldier, who takes the helm of the Retribution, one of Earth’s last remaining warships. In a time of unthinkable hardships, Reyes must lead the remnants of coalition forces against a relentless enemy in a war that stretches to new terrains across the vast expanse of our solar system beyond Earth. In addition to a riveting single player campaign, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will also deliver a robust multiplayer mode, and a unique cooperative zombies experience.

And if a fabulous game wasn't enough, you could try your luck with playing online with others all over the world and get lucky like Gary and Kayleigh did. What started as just some friendly competition, lead to them meeting in person and falling in love.  You can read the story here.

Malt Shop Cookies Can Add a Personal Touch This Holiday Season #Review #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in order to facilitate a review. No other compensation was received. Any and all thoughts are honest, my own and may vary from yours.





If you are struggling to find that perfect gift this holiday season, Malt Shop Cookies has you covered. Malt Shop Cookies is the perfect gift for loved ones and even can provide some nostalgia.

Malt Shop Cookies are able to provide a fine and sweet finishing touch that only malted milk can provide. Malt Shop Cookies offers their cookies in a gift bag or gift tin perfect for gift giving. They even offer the ability to personalize with a picture and message from you to the recipient.

I was offered the chance to review a gift tin of cookies from Malt Shop Cookies. How could I say no? I mean, who doesn't love cookies?! My daughter and I are huge cookie lovers but have never had cookies before that were made with malted milk.

I received the Malted Milk Cookies - 18 Cookie Variety Pack in a Gift Tin. This include 6 cookies of each of their 3 flavors. The 3 flavors are chocolate chip, mocha chocolate and double chocolate.

Upon arrival, the gift tin was packaged nicely in a box along with red and green packing strips. The tin itself was a nice silver tin. On the top is where your personalized picture and message would go but I received the non-personalized version. It included a picture and a standard Christmas message. This is an option for purchase if you don't feel you would like to personalize in order to send cookies as a gift.



The cookies were packaged inside the tin in 3 sets of 6. Each set of 6 was a different flavor. Each set of cookies was labeled with the flavor as well.



We could hardly wait to dive into these yummy cookies! The are soft cookies but don't crumble much when eaten. These arrived tasting so fresh like they were just baked. The rich flavor was consistent in each cookie and within each variety of cookie. The cookies were sweet but not sickening sweet and left behind a pleasant aftertaste. After the first cookie, you can certainly tell that there is something different about them as compared to other cookies. The difference is the malted milk being used. You can taste the difference and it also makes the cookies not get stale as quick.


I was impressed by Malt Shop Cookies from start to finish. The packaging was super cute and can be personalized, the presentation of the cookies upon opening to the tin was fantastic and the cookies are definitely unique with flavor but not so unique that they are an acquired taste. I would definitely recommend these to anyone as a holiday gift or even for themselves.

Shark Rocket Complete Vacuum with DuoClean Technology #Review #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary Shark Rocket Complete Vacuum with DuoClean Technology in exchange for a review. No other compensation was received. Any and all thoughts are honest, my own and may vary from yours.




With today being Thanksgiving, it's time to consider those holiday gifts and the entertaining you will be doing over the next month or so. I recently received the Shark Rocket Complete Vacuum with DuoClean Technology for review purposes. Having the proper tools are essential for cleaning your home for the holidays and even for every day.

What is DuoClean Technology?  DuoClean Tecnology uses TWO brushrolls moving at the same time to help clean. Dirt on floors and carpets come in three sizes: small, large and stuck on. With this vacuum, there NO need to use dustmops and brooms to get the left behind dirt.

Upon arrival, I opened the package to find a bunch of things inside the box. It was a bit overwhelming at first to be honest but I found the quick start guide booklet that came inside so I could figure out how to put it together. It was so simple and took only a few minutes. Most of the pieces are accessories and not parts that are needed to assemble the actual vacuum.


Once the vacuum itself was put together, it was time to test it out. I purposely did not vacuum my upstairs hallway area for a period of time so that it was ready for testing this vacuum out. As you can see, it was pretty bad. My daughter and I have long dark hair that ends up everywhere. Clumps of our hair end up all over the carpets along with other dirt. The vacuum has two settings for vacuuming. One for bare floors and area rugs and one for high pile carpets. The vacuum has a nice handle that it comfortable to hold while using. After placing your foot on the bottom part, a simple flip of the switch near the handle, turns it on.



The vacuum moves itself so you are not pushing it around. It glides on floors and carpet. I was extremely impressed at how well it picked up hair and dirt from my carpets in one pass. Other vacuums take multiple passes and even then, some don't pick up everything. Here are two before and after photos.

Another feature that I found fantastic was that you are able to take out both brushrolls for easy cleaning and put them back in with ease. With other vacuums, you are either not able to even take out the brush(es), or you need a screwdriver or other tool in order to even access it. It becomes a hassle and not something you end up wanting to deal with. I cleaned my hallway area and was shocked at how much hair was wrapped around the one brushroll. It was pretty disgusting. With a push of two buttons, you are able to easily access the brush, snap it out, clean off hair and dirt, snap it back in and snap the lid closed. It took me about 5 minutes from start to finish to take out the brush and clean it and put it back. Shark even includes a brush cleaner that has a ripper on one end to help remove hair! This feature is super important to me because I have ruined many vacuums in the past from having so much hair wrapped around the brush, and not being able to easily access the hair to remove it. The vacuums then did not suction properly and eventually stopped working all together.

BRUSH CLEANER AND RIPPER

The vacuum is super light weight and comes with a bunch of tools to help make cleaning your entire home easy. It even converts to a hand held vac!

The under appliance wand makes cleaning under a fridge or other appliance super easy. It also comes with an upholstery tool, duster crevice tool, TruePet motorized brush, and duster brush. There is a tool for every job in your home.

I would highly recommend this vacuum for helping to get your home nice and clean for holiday entertaining or even just for every day cleaning. It would also make a great gift!

Surviving Winter with Kungs Premium Winter Car Care Products! #Ad

Disclosure: I will receive a Kungs premium Winter car care package in exchange for posting. No other compensation will be received. Any and all thoughts are honest, my own and may vary from yours.





Winter is coming... or should I say it's already here for some parts of the country? Here in Pennsylvania, we've been lucky with relatively warm weather for November but it has very recently gotten colder. I know that the snow, ice and sleet will be on it's way soon! I love the snow as I think it can be a pretty sight but absolutely despise cleaning off my car after a storm. Having the right tools for the job are essential.
 
But there's really no reason to be afraid of the shorter days and colder nights. Fresh snowfall, wind-chilled cheeks, and abundant layers of clothing are a natural part of winter. With at least six months of winter per year, the countries of the North embrace the cold months with enthusiasm—and they could teach us a thing or two about surviving winter. 
 
I recently partnered with Kungs - Finnish producer of premium snow brushes and ice scrapers that are tested in the harshest Arctic conditions— to help spread the word on the exciting launch of these new products in the U.S., just in time for winter.
 


Made in a country with some of the severest winters on the planet, Kungs products combine Scandinavian design and ergonomics with the innovation, durability, and multi-functionality to handle anything winter throws at drivers.
 
Some quick facts about what separates Kungs snow brushes and ice scrapers from the alternatives:

  • Kungs is the market leader in Northern Europe for winter car care accessories.
  • Kungs products are designed, tested, and manufactured in extreme Finnish weather conditions—including testing in sub-zero temperatures and UV radiation!
  • All Kungs products come with a three-year warranty (which is unheard of in this category).
  • Kungs is environmentally friendly—using up to 17 different recycling methods for all waste generated during production. (This is so surprise, since Finland has been recognized as the greenest country in the world.) 
  • Kungs products are PVC-free and made of 100% polycarbonate.  
  • Year after year, Kungs has won awards in third-party tests across Europe (including most recently in Germany).
Many of us complain about winter and wish it would end sooner. But as the folks in Northern Europe know better than any of us, winter is a special season that can be thoroughly enjoyed—if you make the appropriate preparations. With my Kungs snow brushes and ice scrapers—and multiple layers of clothing—I'm ready for an adventurous winter on the road! You can find Kungs Winter car care products at your local Sears Auto Center.

Eat Smart Precision Pro Food Thermometer #Review #EatSmartThermometer #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in order to facilitate a review. No other compensation was received. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and are not swayed in any way.


Cooking is something that I really enjoy doing and I know that there are certain kitchen tools that every cook needs to have. One is a food thermometer. It's so important to make sure that your foods are cooked properly and to the correct temperature so that you don't get sick.

I recently received the Eat Smart Precision Pro Food Thermometer for review purposes. I have tried other Eat Smart products in the past and have always been happy with those so I was certain this would be no different.

Once I opened the package up, I immediately noticed some great features:

-Sleek black design
-Belt clip
-Large display with backlight
-Good sized control buttons
-A list of the perfect temperatures for meats right on the thermometer
- 5 second response time
-Anti-microbial case and sleeve
-2 year limited warranty



I really like the sleek black design. It's not a big bulky thermometer to hold in my hand during use and not bulky to store in a drawer. I have not made use of the belt clip feature myself but I think it's something that's great for those who would make use of it. I appreciate the large backlight display. My eyes are not as good as they once were so having this nice display makes it easy to see what the temperature is without any issues.

The buttons for controlling this are a good size. Many other thermometers have such tiny buttons on them that you can hardly even press them. I think my favorite feature, which might be silly, is having a few perfect temperatures on the front of the thermometer. I make a lot of meat and always have to look online for the proper temperature. Now it's right on the front of my thermometer!

I think it's also fabulous and different that this has an anti-microbial case and sleeve. No bacteria is going to be forming on this and make you sick.

Eat Smart backs up their products too and this one has a 2 year limited warranty.

Gonex 80L Foldable Travel Duffle Bag #Review #Foldablebag #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in order to facilitate a review. No other compensation was received. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and are not swayed in any way.



I recently received the Gonex 80L Foldable Travel Duffle Bag for review. I don't travel a whole lot but when I do, I don't have any actual luggage to do so. I have usually resorted to using a large tote bag, filling it to the brim and hoping everything I would need would fit inside. I usually ended up with not taking things I really needed or sparing things I wanted to take because I didn't have the room in the bag.

I didn't quite know what to expect before this duffle bag arrived. I chose the Rose Red color and thought it would be your standard duffle bag. just in a pretty pink color. I was very wrong! This bag is MASSIVE and very well made. The fabric is lightweight, the zippers and straps are made extremely well. There is a pocket on the outside end and 2 pockets on the outside side.


Upon arrival, it was folded all up in a pouch. The pouch was actually part of the bag. When it's not being used, it folds up into itself for storage. The material is waterproof and resists tears. You can use it with the standard handles or with the shoulder strap.

I recently went on a small 3 day trip and needed to pack quite a bit of stuff. I needed clean outfits for myself and my daughter, toiletries, charging cords etc. It all fit with room to spare! When I say this bag is massive, it really is. It puts your standard duffle bags to shame! When I had the bag packed up and using the shoulder strap, I never once felt like the bag would tear open or that the shoulder strap would break.


I have also used this bag to pack groceries in it to carry into the house after a trip to Aldi. Aldi does not give bags so you either need to provide your own or purchase some while there. I wanted to see what this bag was made of so I packed it FULL of groceries. Again, the bag never tore and the shoulder strap did not break.



I am happy to have this bag for future travels and I know it will last a long time.

PAPAYAY® Waterproof and Wireless DoorBell #Review #Coupon #doorbell #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in order to facilitate this review. No other compensation was received. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and are not swayed in any way.


I recently received the PAPAYAY® Waterproof and Wireless Doorbell for review. While I live in an apartment that already has a doorbell, the buzz/ring of it is totally annoying. The idea of the PAPAYAY® sounded great. It's wireless, it's waterproof AND it has over 50 different chimes to choose from.




When it arrived, I took everything out of the box and started to read the booklet that came along with it. Set up was easy peasy. There are the 2 parts. Plug in the receiver into an electrical outlet and place the transmitter where you would like to use it. This could be outside to use as a standard doorbell or any number of other uses. It's basically set up after pressing a button.



It has over 50 different chimes to choose from. I love this so much! Different moods or days will call for different chimes or even different times of the year. Changing to a different chime takes little effort. You can even switch the volume of the chimes as well.

I remember when I was 17 and was in a horrible car accident. I was mostly bedridden for a couple of months. My mother bought me a bell to ring when I needed something. This was to alert her especially at night that I needed something. Something like this product would have been PERFECT! My mom could have plugged the receiver into an outlet in her bedroom and given me the transmitter. When I needed something, I could have just pressed the button and my mom would have known I needed something. This would be perfect for situations like those without breaking the bank. Maybe you have an elderly family member in your home who needs assistance frequently? Get this product and make it simple!

I have been loving using this in my home. I have changed the chimes a couple of times already! It works perfectly. I can hear someone at the door even when upstairs and the receiver is plugged in downstairs.

You can also add more receivers to the same transmitter so you would hear someone ringing in every room that you put a receiver in.

For the price and the features, I think the PAPAYAY® Waterproof and Wireless DoorBell is a must have for all homes.

The great folks at PAPAYAY® are offering a coupon code for use on Amazon.com 10% off code RA2DHJSE
