Phone Fetcher Review and Giveaway! Ends 5/15!

Image
I am always losing my iPhone! Luckily for me, I have always been able to find it. My purse is huge and it contains so much stuff that it can be difficult to find anything, especially my phone. My phone almost always ends up at the bottom so when it does ring, I end up missing the call because it takes so long to find.

I recently received a great new product called Phone Fetcher. On one end, it has an easy open claw closure and on the other end, a small piece that fits into your headphone jack on your cell phone. Connecting the two ends, is a bungee cord, which allows the cord to stretch easily. I have been using Phone Fetcher for over a week now and honestly, I don't know how I lived without it. I've been attaching it to the zipper pull on the inside of my purse. Now when my phone rings, I can quickly and easily find and answer my phone. No more missed calls! Not only can it be used with cell phones that have a headphone jack, it can also be used with mp3 players and any othe…

Flat Iron Experts - Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Curling Iron Review

Image
Back in March, I reviewed a Babyliss Pro Flat Iron from Flat Iron Experts. They graciously offered me the chance to review another item. This time, they sent me the Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron. I normally flat iron my hair to keep it straight, shiny and frizz free but sometimes I want a different look and would like some curls. Prior to receiving this curling iron, I didn't have or use a curling iron.

Swiss Premium Teas and Lemonade Review!

Image
With Spring here and warmer days upon us, it's important to stay hydrated. My favorite way to stay hydrated in the warmer months is with iced tea. I love sweet tea, iced tea with lemon, peach tea etc.
What I don't like is that many bought teas that you can buy in the gallon and half-gallons in the supermarket are filled with high fructose corn syrup and loads of other unhealthy additives. Because my daughter also drinks the store bought teas and because they contain all that uncessary junk, I don't buy them.
Until now... Swiss Premium Teas and Lemonades are a great and refreshing option, not only for the warmer months but for all year long. Swiss Premium is a great alternative to soda and sugary juice drinks as well. Swiss Tea starts with only three ingredients: water, tea and sugar. Swiss Premium contains no high fructose corn syrup and no preservatives. Infused with a variety of flavors and sweetened with pure cane sugar, Swiss Tea is the premium, ready-made iced tea br…

Gorton's Seafood Review & Giveaway Ends 5/4!

Image
When you hear the name Gorton's, what do you think of? The first thing that comes to my mind is fish sticks eventhough I am aware they make much more than just those. Gorton's has been around since 1849 so I think by now that they know what they are doing when it comes to seafood.
I was sent 2 free product coupons so I could purchase 2 Gorton's seafood item for review purposes. I chose Breaded Fish Fillets and Shrimp Poppers. I admit that I am not a huge seafood lover. I just dislike the strong taste of fish and seafood but I do enjoy some. The Breaded Fish Fillets are always a great choice for me. Made in the oven, they get extra crisp on the outside. Fish fillets are super versatile too. You can make them plain, use them in recipes or simply make a fish sandwich out of them. I really like these because the taste of fish isn't overly strong. I used these to make fish sandwiches and also made them plain with some french fries. The other product I picked up was the Shr…

Over the Moon Milk Review & Giveaway Ends 5/4!

Image
I love milk especially chocolate milk. There is nothing like guzzling down a big glass of ice cold milk after having a cookie or piece of cake!
I was recently introducted to a brand of milk that I had never heard of before called "Over the Moon". It's only available in select states including Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
What makes Over the Moon different than other brands of milk?
Over the Moon contains 34% more bone-building calcium and 37% more protein than regular milk. It's also an excellent source of Vitamin D.
Over the Moon is available in Fat Free, Low Fat and Chocolate.
I picked up a container of low fat and one in chocolate. My daughter isn't a big milk drinker but will sometimes drink chocolate milk. Both her and I loved this chocolate milk. It was super creamy! She won't touch white milk so I was on my own for the low fat milk. I used…

Libby's Single Serve Fruit Cups Review & Giveaway Ends 5/4!

Image
Spring is offically here and with this comes more outdoor activities and busier schedules for families. Libby's Fruits & Vegetables is excited to be introducing their new single serving fruit cups and asked me to review them.
My daughter and I love fruit but taking them outside of the house has always been an issue. I received 2 of each flavor for review.
Flavors: Diced Pears, Diced Peaches, Mixed Fruit and Cherry Mixed Fruit.
Libby's single serve fruit cups come in a much more sturdier container than other single serve fruit cups. This insures that the container doesn't break open while in a purse or other travel item. Each container contains 6 ounces of California-grown fruit and is found in local Supermarkets nationwide.
My daughter and I tried each variety and thought all of the fruit tasted super fresh. The chunks of fruit were large but not so large that children would have any issues with swallowing them. I was happy to see that each contained 6 ounces of fruit.…

GourmetGiftBaskets.com Brownie Sampler Review & Giveaway! Ends 4/22!

Image
I have worked with GourmetGiftBaskets.com in the past and love their huge selection and price ranges of gift baskets. They truly have something for everyone for any occassion.

Did you know they also have baked goods? I didn't until they contacted me to do a review on their brownies. I love brownies so of course I agreed to review them.

They sent me one of each of the following flavors:

Peanut Butter Brownie- YUM! What's better than peanut butter and chocolate? That's right, nothing. It had peanut butter chips on top and was just the perfect combination.

Cheesecake Brownie-Cheesecake was layered on the top of the chocolate gooey brownie for yet another perfect combination.

Belgian Chocolate Chunk Brownie-I thought that this one might be a bit too much chocolate for me but it wasn't. The Belgian chocolate chunks on the top were just a nice compliment to the brownie and I didn't find it overwelming at all.

Fudge Walnut Brownie-A total classic. Walnuts on top of a brownie.…

The DVDs incorporate music with exciting, colorful imagery.

I was recently sent the "Sight Words" DVD from Rock 'N Learn. "Sight Words" is for Pre-K and up so it can be used for just about any age. My daughter is 7 and while she knew some of the words, she still found it entertaining with the fun songs. She's been having a blast with this DVD and learning the different sight words. She's an excellent reader for a first grader but still struggles on some ba…

Harvey Prince Ageless Review and Giveaway! 17 Winners! Ends 4/30!

Image
Back in February, I reviewed 2 Harvey Prince perfumes. You can read those reviews HERE. Harvey Prince contacted me and asked me to do another review. This time I was asked to review Ageless.

If you've not yet heard of Harvey Prince perfumes, you are missing out.


About Harvey Prince:
Harvey Prince was developed by 2 brothers as a gift to their mother. It began as a rebellious idea. You see, they wanted boutique-quality scents but didn't want them to be overwhelming, overpriced or filled with toxic chemicals! Their mother loves honest products that feel and smell great, so one Mother's Day, they crafted a scent that captured her effortless and radiant aura.

All of the Harvey Prince perfumes are crafted in the USA, are 100% cruelty free and contain no phthalates, parabens, sulfates, benzene, GMO's or triclosan.


I received a generous 100ml bottle of Ageless in the mail from Harvey Prince.
