Zenni Optical-Great Styles!

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


I have been wearing eyeglasses  for many years now. As when I was younger I had a injury to my eye. So I have been wearing them since before they had stylish ones. I can remember the first pair I had,not a pretty sight. As back then when you went to pick out your glasses they were not too many to choose from-so you had to choose the ones that you looked the best in.. The prices were very expensive too,so I could only get one pair a year.

                                                            Did you know that you can get stylish and cheap eyeglasses online? At Zinni Optical  they have so many great styles to choose from and prices start at only $6.95. At that price you can pick up a extra pair or two for less then a night out. Zenni Optical has something for everyone in the family,from children to men's!  And I am not talking about a few styles,they have over 3000 frames to choose from.

Zenni Optical can give you low cost eyewear, because they have no middle man. Everything is direct from their factory to you! Just think of the money that you are saving! We all love saving money and this is one of the best deals that I have seen on eyeglasses.

Heck~I might even get these for Christmas,as the price is so low that I can fit them in the budget. I think that they are too Cute and I could wear them year after year! What do you think~Is it me?!? I know that the grandchildren would love them on me for sure!

Smallville-The Complete 10th Season What Are Your Favorites?

 ~Smallville-The Complete 10th Season & The Complete Series~
The series that redefines the origins of the world's greatest hero reaches its powerful conclusion with more revelations, more fascinating characters from DC Comics and a mind-blowing, spirit-lifting finale that is everything fans could want! 

Having been a fan for a long time some of my favorites from Season 10 are~

When Lois and Clark walk down the aisle side by side. It was so romantic as they were showing everyone that they were a team already. And the Sara Bareilles song Breathe Again makes it all that more special. I shed a few tears~which I am sure that I am not the only one.

 Or how about when Supergirl returns to earth? How shocked were you? I was just surprised knowing Jor-El sent her as he didn't think Clark could handle it!
What are some of your favorites?
The "Smallville- The Complete Series" has all 218 episodes with over 28 hours of special features, never-before-seen features and production art and an Exclusive Daily Planet newspaper written by DC Comics!

You can Pre-order  Smallville: The Complete Tenth Season DVD here.

Ottilie & Lulu Review and Giveaway 12/8

Many of my granddaughter's are getting older now,They are in that "Tween" stage. They want to do everything that the older girls do. One of the things that they have started is putting on makeup. While I think that it is fine with them to want to try it.I also want them to know how important it is to take care of your skin.
As now is the time to start a daily skin and hair care hygiene regimen for tween girls because 80% of the damage done to skin happens by the age of 17. Tween girls have delicate skin and face their own challenges. They need safe products made just for them to help them feel good and look good.
Ottilie and Lulu offers a range of easy-to-use products specially formulated for girls 7-14.  Each of these formulas contains anti-oxidants to protect a young girl's skin from environmental stresses,vitamins to nourish, and enriching botanicals. Dermatologist, allergy, and clinically tested-but not on animals. 

We were sent 2 products to review~
Ottilie & Lulu Clean Skin Face Wipes~Clean Skin Face wipes are specially formulated for tween skin {no salicylic acid} and are the ideal way to help her keep her beautiful, clear skin. The very light scent of rosewater will leave her feeling refreshed. Everyday, twice-a-day, both in the morning and at bedtime, girls can gently wipe skin with a face wipe. These wipes are also ideal for girls who want to freshen their face with after sports or any exercise.

Ottilie & Lulu Body Glow Lotion~This non-oily formula moisturizes tween skin leaving it feeling soft and smooth.  The light, soothing scent of lavender is so relaxing and offers tweens a bit of luxury! This gentle formula contains anti-oxidants to relieve environmental stress, vitamins to nourish, and botanicals to soothe skin. It makes rough elbows and knees nice a smooth.

We loved the products as the Clean Skin Face Wipes can sit right on the bathroom counter to remind the girls to wash their face all the time.  The 100% cotton towelettes are super soft, gently cleansing. With the scent of rose water~smells so good! 
The Body Glow Lotion is non-oily and a soothing moisturizer with a light lavender scent that leaves the skin feeling amazingly soft and smooth. Just made for the Tween skin!

 About Ottilie & Lulu~
Created By Deborah Hernan
As mothers, you want safe, gentle ingredients in your daughters' products.  Tween "beauty" should be about cleansing and protecting one's face, hair and body, not applying irritating glitter, or wearing heavy perfume or strident colours. Clean, healthy, and happy, those are the communication messages our girls should be getting.  They don't need to be bombarded with beauty standards and imagery that are inappropriate for girls 7-14.
As people who were girls once, you appreciate that they want something just for themselves.  Who among us does not remember our first fragrant soap bar (was it lavender?) or a refreshing splash{was yours a big yellow bottle?}.  Give Ottilie & Lulu as tween gifts to your daughter and her friends and create some new memories!
The Ottilie and Lulu line includes face wipes, everyday moisturizer with spf 20, shampoo and body wash, detangler and conditioner {all in one}, and a body glow lotion. The products are created with gentle formulations without, Parabens, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, Mineral Oil or Petroleum by-products.  
You can purchase all of the products online at~ and right now they are offering free shipping on orders of $25.00 or more. You can also purchase on

Crazy, Stupid, Love Blu-Ray DVD Review!

The Blu-Ray Combo Pack and DVD include an Ultra Violet Digital Copy of the standard definition theatrical version of the film, which allows consumers to download the film to a PC or Mac plus instantly stream it from a digital cloud to many computers,tablets or smartphones.
I love movies~I have a whole collection that the kids and grand-kids like to come over and watch here and then take some home to watch too
I was recently sent a great movie to watch~Crazy,Stupid, Love

Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling lead an all-star cast in Crazy, Stupid, Love. 
Fortysomething 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.

I loved this movie~it  kept your attention and made you laugh many times over! It is a great movie to watch with your honey or best friend. It is the perfect holiday movie~a little romance,comedy and will make a great gift too!

{ I was sent the Crazy,Stupid,Love DVD to review. No monies were offered or accepted. All above opinions are my own.}

Stand Up For Family

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Family Insurance for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


American Family Insurance  recently hosted a Stand Up For Family comedy show that the whole family can enjoy! As there are no adult situations to make the kids leave the room,or words that you don't want them to repeat. I love finding shows that I can share with my grandchildren

Bill Bellamy hosts this family friendly comedy show full of laugh out loud performances that everyone can enjoy. As they are some great comedians that talk about things that have happened in every day life~Just plain good humor. I really enjoyed watching all the videos as who doesn't like to laugh? It is a great way to not only start the day but it also reduces our stress levels.

The one that stood out to me was "Street Lights" . When my children were younger they all knew that as soon as the street lights came on that it was time for them to be in the house or else. As I felt that was long enough for them to be out. That way we still had time for baths~stories and brushing our teeth.

Family is very important to me and I was happy to see that all the videos are by AmFam

Christmas Lodge Review and Giveaway 12/4

Thomas Kinkade presents Christmas Lodge~A place where a heart-warming past and loving future meet for one remarkable group of people. During a weekend trip to the mountains, Mary (Erin Karpluk) finds herself at the now- dilapidated lodge where she spent the holidays with her family growing up. She becomes determined to restore the building to its former glory. Inspired by her grandfather and guided by her grandmother in heaven, Mary throws herself into the project, and during the process finds herself drawn to Jack (Michael Shanks), a handsome man who loves the lodge as much as she does. Historically unlucky in love, this chance encounter allows Mary to renew her faith in life and discover her one true love.

We just watched this DVD and sure enjoyed the storyline. Even though it was predicable in parts of the movie.It made me laugh and cry. It was a funny romantic movie that puts you right in the Christmas spirit! It was fun to watch them fixing up the lodge and then falling in love.It is a great movie to watch for all~young to old alike.
For an uplifting story about the importance of faith, family and the true holiday spirit, go to the Christmas Lodge.

Baby-Puppy Cute Or What?!?

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


Right now Animal Planet is having a Puppies vs. Babies online contest   They want to find out who is the Cutest~Babies or Puppies?!?

You can vote until Nov. 23rd for your favorite baby or puppy. The winning picture will win $5,000!!


I for one think that there is nothing sweeter or cuter then a little baby. As the faces that they make are just too Cute! They smell so good and I just want to kiss their cheeks over and over. Of course,having 11 grandchildren might have something to do with it. As they all were cute when they were born to me!

But have you seen the look on a puppy/s face when he is looking at you with those big sad eyes? As you know that he wants you to pick him up and play with him! I think that all little puppies are too cute~as they are just so little and have that little yelp! instead of a bark.

Do I want a puppy or baby? No way-been there,done that. But I still think they are both cute as ever~as long as they don't live at this house. I don't want to get up 4-5 times a night for feedings with a baby-I like to sleep all night. I don't want to take a puppy outside when it is 30 below zero-I like to be under my covers instead.


I love them both and think they are cute. So-I am still looking at the entires to see which is my favorite. But I am thinking that it is going to be a baby that gets my vote. As there is noting cuter then a toothless grin!

So what do you think-Babies or Puppies? Go cast your vote now and let me know which one you picked!
