Review & Giveaway: Carmex Prize Pack

The leaves are changing colors, falling off the trees and there's a chill in the air. It's fall and this is the time of year when my lips and skin get excessively dry.   Carmex sent me some of their new Healing Lotion and Healing Cream just in time!

About The Healing Lotion:
  • Use anywhere skin feels dry;
    available in tube or NEW pump
  • Daily use will help protect skin and keep dryness away
  • Rich healing ingredients, including Aloe and Vitamin E, nourish and moisturize skin
  • Absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel; has a light, pleasant scent

The day I received the Healing Lotion, I used some on my face and arms which have already started to get dry.  After a few used, I noticed my skin was feeling softer and less irritated.  In my opinion, using it after shaving your legs is magical!  My legs have never been this soft and smooth.

About The Healing Cream:
  • Use on your driest skin— especially hands, feet, elbows and knees; available in tube or NEW handy little tin
  • 9 healing ingredients penetrate and help repair your very dry, rough or cracked skin
  • Concentrated—use a small amount
  • Absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel; has a light, pleasant scent

If your skin is anything like mine, then your elbows get raw and crack.  It's extremely irritating, not to mention painful.  When I tested the cream on my elbows, I was afraid that it might burn because that is what I have learned to expect.  Lucky for me, the Healing Cream was soothing.  I love it!

I'm So Giddy! The Hollows Series By Kim Harrison!

OK, I'm freaking out with excitement! My all time favorite book series, The Hollows, by Kim Harrison is being made into a TV show! My Dad was looking around online and saw Dead Witch Walking (the first book in the series). He read what the book was about and immediately knew that it was a must-have for me. I mean, I've been addicted to vampires, werewolves and witches for as long as I can remember. Which is one trait that I get from my wonderful father. Plus, the series takes place in Cincinnati, Ohio, which is only fifteen minutes away from me. Find out more by visiting Kim Harrison's website.

Immortals - In Theaters 11-11-11

Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and producers Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300) and Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter) unleash an epic tale of treachery, vengeance and destiny in Immortals, a stylish and spectacular 3-D adventure. As a power-mad king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, a heroic young villager rises up against him in a thrilling quest as timeless as it is powerful.

The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the
evil king's mission.

As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion's raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man's future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final desperate battle for the future of humanity.

Every time a preview comes on for this movie, I have to stop what I am doing to watch it.  It looks like such a great movie!

Puppies vs. Babies - Who's Cuter?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puppies vs. Babies for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


This is a really, really hard question to answer.  Who would win in a Puppies vs. Babies online contest?  I mean, they are both so incredibly adorable.  How in the world would I make a decision?  I mean, my heart melts every time I see a sweet little puppy face.  But when my nephew was born, I saw how truly beautiful new human life is.  So which one would I vote for in the contest.  This is a tough one...

I mean, both are absolutely adorable.  I don't think anyone can deny that.  When I think about my dog as a puppy, I remember just looking at her and thinking that she was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen.  I felt the exact same way about Damien, my nephew.  I guess I should look at this from a different perspective.  If I just take my personal feelings toward those babies and puppies around me out of the mix and look objectively at puppies as whole and babies as a whole, I would have to go with puppies.  There is just something about these four-legged creatures that gets me every single time. 

So who get's your vote in the Puppies vs. Babies contest?  Is it the innocent face of a baby or the cuddly face of a puppy?  Voting is happening right now and will end on November 23rd.  By voting, you could win $5,000!  That's a nice little chunk of change if I do say so myself!

What's Cuter - Puppies or Babies?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puppies vs. Babies for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


I can still remember the first time I saw my nephew.  I had been at the hospital for like 26 hours and I couldn't even think about leaving until I knew that she and my little nephew, Damien were both healthy and happy.  When I was told that I could go back, the anticipation was overwhelming.  I walked in and saw that little baby face and melted right away.  He's had me wrapped around his finger ever since.

When I got my first puppy, I was so in love that I could just sit there and watch her.  She was so adorable and the feeling that I had was indescribable.  

So now for the tough question, who should I vote for in the Puppies vs. Babies online contest?  The contest runs through November 23rd and the winner (puppy or baby) will take the $5,000 prize.

How will I ever decide between a sweet little baby face and a cute little puppy face?  If I think about my nephew, I think he would win hands down.  But when I think about Puppies vs. Babies in general, I would have to say that puppies win.  I go nuts whenever I see a little puppy, no matter what.  Babies, unless I know them I don't really go all gaga.  So I guess I will have to vote for the pooches.  Who are you going to vote for?

Review: iPhone Case From Griffin Technology

For those of you who don't know, my husband is nothing short of amazing. For my birthday this year he surprised me with an iPhone 4, which I had been wanting so badly. So, enough bragging about the awesome man in my life.

Right after I received my gift, I knew that I needed to get an iPhone case to protect my newly acquired treasure. I ended up receiving one to review on behalf of Griffin Technologies.  I like the design of my case and the color.  The only thing that I'm not thrilled about is that the case is made of plastic, which isn't exactly what I have in mind when thinking about durability.  It feels a little flimsy and even though I am currently using it, I will probably end up getting another case shortly.  One that I"m sure can withstand a fall or two.

I received the above pictured iPhone case for free from Griffin Technology.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Review & Giveaway: Farmhouse Foods Pasta & Rice

When it comes to side dishes, my family can't enough of pasta and rice.  We also prefer to eat food that are made from all natural ingredients.  Not only do natural ingredients make for healthier meals, they also tend to taste a whole lot better.  This is why I was so excited when I received an offer to review boxes of Farmhouse Foods.  They were very easy to cook and as long as you follow the directions on the back of the box, it's nearly impossible to mess up.

My favorite pasta would have to be the Four Cheese Flavor Pasta.  I'm a bit cheese-obsessed so when I put this in my mouth and was actually able to taste all four cheeses, which went together beautifully, I might add, I was in heaven.  I also really enjoyed the Parmesan Flavor Pasta that we ate along with some steak and it was absolutely delicious!  Another one of Farmhouse Foods pastas that we enjoyed was the mouth-watering White Cheddar Pasta.

My husband went nuts for the rice.  We tried the Chicken Flavor Rice first.  I baked some chicken and stirred it into the rice while the rice was cooking and it was scrumptious!  The Rice Pilaf was probably my favorite of all the rices.  I love vegetables, especially when they are mixed with rice, so it was tasty and it made me feel good that I was doing something positive for my body.  The Long Grain & Wild Rice was also exceptionally tasty.  It's a great side for baked chicken breasts.

I am so very happy that I had the chance to taste Farmhouse Foods pasta & rice.  Now when I go to the store, I will be looking for their label because I know that it will taste great and be better for my body because it is all natural.  They even have recipes on their website to help you mix things up a little bit!

I received items for free from Farmhouse Foods. They will also be providing one of my readers with 10 boxes of Farmhouse Foods. All opinions are 100% my own.

    Giveaway: Crazy Stupid Love

    Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling lead an all-star cast in Crazy, Stupid, Love. Forty something straight-laced Cal Weaver (Carell) is living the dream—good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart, Emily (Julianne Moore). So when Cal learns that his wife has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth so handsome player Jacob Palmer (Gosling) takes him on as wingman and protégé, opening Cal’s eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style. Despite Cal's makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can’t be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading Cal back to where he began. Brimming with inspired performances, critics are calling this gem of a romantic comedy “a movie that understands love” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly).

    I have been wanting to see this movie ever since I saw the preview.  I have yet to see it yet but I'm sure it won't be long.

    Oranges & Sunshine

    Oranges and Sunshine tells the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham who uncovered one of the most significant social scandals of recent times: the deportation of thousands of children from the United Kingdom to Australia.

    Almost single-handedly, against overwhelming odds and with little regard for her own well-being, Margaret reunited thousands of families, brought authorities to account and drew worldwide attention to an extraordinary miscarriage of justice. Children as young as four had been told that their parents were dead, and been sent to children's homes on the other side of the world. Many were subjected to appalling abuse. They were promised oranges and sunshine: they got
    hard labour and life in institutions.

    There's Nothing Better Than A Hot Cup Of Coffee On A Cold Day

    I was kind of a "late bloomer" when it came to drinking coffee. My parents don't drink it and I just never really saw the point in trying it. That all changed in my early twenties. I tried a cup and added sugar and cream, of course. After that, I was addicted. I love that you can totally mix it up by using different flavors of coffee and cream. I'm so excited about fall because it makes drinking coffee so much more enjoyable. I know, you can drink coffee all year round, which I do but there is something about the cold air and a hot drink that has a calming effect.  I can already picture myself bundled up in my slanket with a hot mug of coffee and a good book.  I'm experimenting right now and I am going to Buy Kona Coffee. Have you tried Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee?  I'm really interested in trying different types of gourmet coffee.  I think I'll pick up some cookies to go with it.  Why not go all out?  Gourmet coffee would be especially good around the holidays.  Or even just to drink while I sit and chat with friends.  All this talk about coffee is making me thirsty...

    The Secret World of Arrietty

    Residing quietly beneath the floorboards are little people who live undetected in a secret world to be discovered, where the smallest may stand tallest of all. From the legendary Studio Ghibli (“Spirited Away,” “Ponyo”) comes “The Secret World of Arrietty,” an animated adventure based on Mary Norton’s acclaimed children’s book series “The Borrowers.”

    Arrietty (voice of Bridgit Mendler), a tiny, but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents (voices of Will Arnett and Amy Poehler) in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper (voice of Carol Burnett). Like all little people, Arrietty (AIR-ee-ett-ee) remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shawn (voice of David Henrie), a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. If discovered, their relationship could drive Arrietty’s family from the home and straight into danger. The English language version of “The Secret World of Arrietty” was executive produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, and directed by Gary Rydstrom. The film hits theaters Feb. 17, 2012.

    V: The Complete Second Season - Part 2

    Hobbes constantly calls Ryan out as a traitor even though his treachery has far worse consequences. Not only has Hobbes killed humans, he slept with Erica and then indirectly caused the death of Erica's ex-husband Joe.

    This really got me thinking about when I was with my ex-husband. He would point out anything I did and turn it around to make it sound like I was the one who was wrong. He was a liar and a thief but according to him, everything was my fault. I figured out how to end the madness though. I divorced his ass.

    Strange Neighbors by Ashlyn Chase
    When all-star pitcher and shape-shifter Jason Falco buys a small apartment building, he sees it not only as an investment but as a place to escape the demands of major league baseball.

Not to mention a beautiful, all-too-human nurse. But with all the hooting, howling, and hollering going on, how's an all-American shapeshifter supposed to sweep a girl off her feet?

    Emma and the Vampires by Jane Austen and Wayne Josephson

He inherited the talent from his long-lost mother, who told him to keep it a secret, and he has. He is soon involved in the archaeological excavation on his family’s land and meets American Rylie Powell. Her father walked out on the family when she was a toddler, and she now believes that Donovan’s father is also hers. Donovan knows in his heart this cannot be true as the attraction between them is palpable. In between checking out DNA tests and family histories, the two become involved with murders past and present stemming from the Troubles, a quest that requires Donovan’s gift. Northern Ireland’s violent past combined with supernatural elements add an intriguing twist to this modern love story.

    Paying For School

    I can still remember my senior year and all I kept thinking about was how the next year I would be going to college. I felt like I was unstoppable and there were so many possibilities for the future. Don't get me wrong, I was a bit overwhelmed because I was becoming an adult and wasn't quite sure how I was going to pay for school.  My mom and I did some research on grants and private student loans

    I decided to go to a University that was close to home because I didn't want to end up owing so much money that I would feel suffocated by debt.  I ended up receiving a couple of grants but it still wasn't enough to pay for school plus books and supplies.  I ended up taking out a loan so that I would be able to get all the things that I needed. 

    Even though I knew that I would have to pay back my loan, I knew that in the long run it was for the best.  Getting an education is important, especially in today's world.  Investing in your future can be one of the best things you can do for yourself. 

    Cars 2 On Blu-ray & DVD November 1st!

    Cars 2 will be available for purchase on November 1st! Just in time for Christmas.  I saw this movie in the theaters and loved it.  It has a James Bond type theme which I found to be really creative.  It's action-packed and laugh-out-loud funny.  I can't wait to watch it again! 

    I did not receive any form of compensation for this post.
