Gorton's Seafood Challenge Review and Giveaway

Image
Disclosure: I received  complementary samples and prize pack from Gorton's in order to facilitate a review/post. No other compensation was received. All opinions were honest and my own but may vary from those of your own. Giveaway is in no way associated with Facebook, Twitter, Google, Pinterest or any other social media site.




Did you know that Gorton's Seafood has 20 options that are under 200 calories per serving? I didn't! I knew that seafood was a healthy, lower calorie option but never knew that Gorton's had so many under 200 calories per serving.

Gorton's recently challenged me to make a recipe that I've never made before, using one of their 20 under 200 options. I am in no way a culinary expert who can come up with recipes on the fly but I can follow just about any recipe. I chose to use their Grilled Tilapia in a dish.

Fresh Produce Clothing Review

I love to shop but hate shopping for clothing for myself. Being a plus size woman, I feel like there isn't much out there that is flattering on me. 
I recently had the chance to review an item from Fresh Produce clothing.

Fresh Produce is a women's clothing company, known for it's original prints, vibrant colors and comfortable clothing. They also have a children's line and are proudly made in the USA.
I was able to choose an item from their website for review purposes but let me tell you, it was so hard! They have so many wonderful pieces. From basic wardrobe must haves to fun colorful styles, they have a bit of everything. I finally chose their Vintage Slub Cardigan in black. I thought it would be great for Spring for those cool evenings. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised how lightweight an…

Update About Giveaway Entries, Beware Cheaters and Facebook Advice

The other day, I wrote a blog post about changes in my giveaway entries. One of which was removing all Facebook fan page related entries. They were all removed from my giveaways.

After much consideration, I have decided that I am going to add Liking me on Facebook back into the mix of giveaway entries but only for my own personal giveaways and never for group giveaways moving forward.

I also want to remind anyone who has multiple Facebook pages for the purpose of cheating on giveaways. As far as MY blog is concerned, you are wasting your time. The Rafflecopter and Giveaway Tools widgets allow me to check IP addresses and other certain information so I would know pretty quickly if you're a cheater. If I believe you're a cheater, you will NEVER win any of my giveaways.

Plus, you are at risk of having all of your Facebook pages shut down as you are only to have one Facebook page per person. Beyond that, they have a automated system to detect spam/multiple accounts. Even with just on…

The Fairy Hobmother Strikes Again!

Disclosure: I received a gift card in exchange for this post. No other compensation was received.


I follow a ton of other bloggers in order to keep up to date on posts, events, giveaways, reviews and of course, to show my support. I remember seeing a few posts about The Fairy Hobmother visiting their blog and sending them a gift. At the end of each post, other bloggers could comment and leave their blog URL and hope that The Fairy Hobmother would pay them a visit as well.

I remember leaving a comment or two on such posts and to my surprise, I received a visit from The Fairy Hobmother myself!

The Fairy Hobmother enjoys spreading joy across the blogosphere by visiting blogs and providing a gift card in exchange for posting about him, Appliances Online and his mission. 

With that said, comment below with your blog URL and you just might receive a visit and gift from The Fairy Hobmother yourself!

Changes in Giveaway Entries - Effective Immediately *Updated*

Hey everyone! I just wanted to update you all about some giveaway entry changes that are in effect immediately. I want you ALL to know that I appreciate you and without you all, my blog wouldn't be what it is today.

I love bringing you product reviews and giveaways but due to some unfortunate issues, I must make changes on giveaway entries due to TOS's of certain social media companies.

They are as follows:

Facebook - There will no longer be any entries related to my Facebook fan page on any giveaways. Due to another bloggers fan page being shut down for an unknown reason but most likely related to the number of "likes" she was receiving and also somehow related to giveaways, I have no choice right now but to remove all Facebook entries. I don't want my Facebook fan page shut down so until further notice, no Facebook related entries related to my page. There is a link to my Facebook page in the right side bar and I would still love to gain fans but cannot due so rig…
