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 somethi

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

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.   ~ Ottilie & Lulu ~ We were sent

Howard B Wigglebottom Listens To His Heart Review and Giveaway 12/6
