Kidlandia Review!

All kids love personalized products. There is something about seeing their name on things that brings a smile to their faces. I like to find personalized products for the kids that are different and I do believe that I have hit the jackpot with Kidlandia .  About Kidlandia~ The founder of Kidlandia, illustrator and entrepreneur Brian Backus, has been living in a fantasy world of maps and monsters since he was a very little boy. It grew out of Brian’s 2004 concept to create personalized maps of imaginary kingdoms for children’s rooms. He also produced educational multimedia titles for Disney and Voyager, was also intrigued by the idea that by engaging kids in namesake kingdoms, he could motivate them to understand maps, and accelerate reading skills.  Today, Kidlandia is comprised of a team of talented engineers, designers, and business professionals. Kidlandian team members share a passion to bring delight and meaning to the lives of children and their families. 2.5% of Kidla

Oransi Fridge Air Purifier Review and Giveaway 11/17

 I was recently sent a Oransi Fridge Purifier to review. I could not believe how small this thing is. It is only 4 inches tall and about 2 1/2 inches wide. It's so easy to use too~just add 2 AA batteries and turn the switch on and place it in your fridge! There are no replacement filters and nothing to clean. Effective in the removal of odors and bacteria to keep your refrigerator smelling fresh and your food fresher. Conveniently fits anywhere in your refrigerator. I have been using this for about a week now and my produce seems so much fresher and crisper too. As I don't know how many times I have bought a bag of salad and went to go use it a few days later and it went bad. But not this time as it stayed fresh even after 4 days! I love that there is no noise either~the fridge air purifier is Silent. No more ugly baking soda boxes for me. About Oransi~ Oransi, based in Austin, TX, develops green cleaning products such as air purifiers to clean the air so you and

The True Story of Puss’N Boots DVD Review

~The True Story of Puss and Boots~ For generations, children around the world have enjoyed the classic fairy tale of Puss 'n' Boots. This is a different story as it is told by William Shatner. A young miller’s son inherits a strange talking cat with magical boots. With his cunning wit, Puss helps him win the heart of the Princess while battling devious suitors that are after the throne. I watched this with my grandchildren~we enjoyed the graphics and there was lots of singing and dancing that held their attention. It was fun to watch together~as we all learned that no matter where or who you are Your Dreams Can come True!! The True Story of Puss’N Boots DVD was just  released October 4th so you can get your own copy now! You can read more about the movie here. {I was sent  The True Story of Puss’N Boots DVD to review.

Don't Drive Buzzed This Halloween!

Whether at a Halloween party, a costume contest at a bar or trick-or-treating through the neighborhood, many of us will be on the road this weekend. Please remember if you have one too many or way too many it is not safe to get behind the wheel. There isn’t a Halloween costume clever enough to hide an impaired driver who has made the poor decision to get behind the wheel. Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving! Halloween night is often one of the deadliest nights of the year due to the number of impaired drivers on the streets.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2009, 48 percent of all traffic fatalities on Halloween night involved a driver or a motorcycle rider with a BAC of .08 or higher.  Halloween means dark streets full of little kids distracted by candy and costumes. That makes it especially important to start planning a safe and sober ride home from whatever fun you’ll be having that night — so your evening doesn’t take a truly scary turn. On

Chuck-The Complete 4th Season on DVD/Blu-Ray!

  ~ The Replacements~ In episode 18, Sarah worries that the CIA is replacing them with Casey's extremely efficient team, but Chuck considers himself irreplaceable with the Intersect. I remember years ago,when I was working as a bartender and my boss got really sick.As he was in and out of the hospital, I was worried that I would lose my job if something should happen to him. I was told that no matter what happened I would keep my job. Well,he did end of passing and I did keep my job for about 1 year after. Then the bar was sold and that was the end of my job. But it was all good as I ended up working for his son and that was one of the best jobs I had! Have you ever felt like you were in jeopardy of being replaced? Has there ever been a time where you have been made to feel outdated. If so, how did you remedy the situation? Did it end well?  In season four, the geek gone spy is putting everything on the line, available for pre-order here: {I
