Private Selection Products Review

I love to have parties! So I am always looking for new food and new ideals to make my parties a success.

When I received some coffee,crackers, and a coupon for some cheese stuffed olives,in the mail, I was very excited! The crackers were very good! They are thin and crisp. They taste wonderful with chicken and bean soup. My husband loved the cheese stuffed olives.  I didn't like them because they leave a wired after taste in your mouth. But they make a great snack and are great for entertaining. My friends and I agreed that the coffee has a wonderful coffee flavor.
 While the Private brand products taste great, the prices and the quantity of their products are not very good. They are very expansive! I wouldn't buy these products without a coupon.
Please if anyone have some ideas for fun party games for adults please let me know. I would really appreciate it.

I received some product samples, and coupons free to review from BzzAgent. All opinion are my own.

Pine Bros Throat Drops Review

Two  weeks ago I had a really bad sore throat. The good folks at Pine Bros. sent me a package of cough drops to review!  I immediately opened up one of the Natural Honey and one of the Wild Cherry to try, and let each of my daughters try as well.  They each picked out the flavor they liked.  The flavor that I liked was wild cherry, it tasted great. It is not too sweet like some cough drops are.  And they helped soothe my sore throat. They aren't menthol based either - you know how you have a cold sometimes the menthol will make it seem like you are breathing in cold air which is irritating. My children think that they are candy and are always asking for these cough drops, because they are soft almost like gummi bears. Their favorite is wild cherry  as well.

 Pine Bros Throat Drops
 This product is available nationwide at CVS Pharmacy.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Plan Your Dream Vacation with


It’s been a dream of mine to go to New York City ever since I was a teenager.  The bright lights, tall buildings, beautiful landscapes and parks, including the wonderful aroma and taste of delicious apple pie that makes me feel content. These are the warm thoughts and desires that feel my heart when I dream at night. makes it very easy to plan a vacation for those who are busy with family, work or just strapped for time.   

As a budget traveler, Chelsea Inn is economical and would allow me to spend most of my money exploring the “Big Apple”, rather than spending so much on my hotel stay.  The price per night is $141.00, which is not bad.  The hotel is set in the heart of New York, close to Rubin Museum of Himalayan Art, as well as New York University and the Empire State Building.   Also it is close to Central Park, which is nice, because this is the first place I want to visit. The second place I want to visit is Times Square, to see all the beautiful signs and do some shopping. Then I would like to visit the Rockefeller Center to see some awe-inspiring sights and art decorated buildings.

 I also would like to see the Statue of Liberty; it’s been my dream to go look down at the land from her hat. I think that would be so awesome.  I would also like to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I love all types of museum because it’s really interesting to see how people lived long ago. Also museums can help one understand different cultures.  Going to museums and parks are my ideal of a relaxing day.

 Last on my wish list are the places to eat. I will only eat at a few restaurants that are near the tourist area because in my experience it can be expensive.  I would like to go to Lamberdi’s Pizza. I heard that the pizza is quite good.  It will be great to finally try some NY style pizza.  Everyone, I know who has been to NY has always told me about the NY style pizza.  Hopefully it will taste as good as expected!

PinyPon Doll Party Review

I was chosen by MomSelect, to have a PinyPon   Doll party, and we had a blast. I received these free toys to share with my guests
   :12 Pinypon Dolls
Pinypon - Caravan Playset
2 Nenuco Newborn Makes Bubbles

I hid pictures of the dolls around the house for the girls to find. After they found the pictures of the dolls, we had a fashion show. The girls enjoyed mixing and matching different clothes and accessories until they had the look that they liked. Then they had to show off their dolls in a fashion show. All the girls loved showing off their dolls. They enjoyed the games that we played. We played Simon said and the last person in the game won the PinyPon Caravan. We play another game where we had all the girls stand on one leg and the one who stood the longest won the Nenuco New Born Makes Bubbles Doll. The Nenuco New Born Makes Bubbles Doll is really cute. You can give it water and it will use the bathroom.
    The girls love their dolls and the fact that they could mix and match the dolls clothes. The Pinypon dolls are a great way to teach your child about  styles.

   It was a lot of fun! The adults played a Bingo game where we learned about green habits that could save money. All the adults received coupons and samples for Seventh Generation baby products and laundry detergent. Over all we all had a wonderful time!
You  can find this company on Facebook at :Pinypon

What Daddy Did Today, A Father’s Bedtime Story Review

I received a lovely book free in the mail and I wanted to share it with you it is called “What Daddy Did Today A Father’s Bedtime Story” by Water Wally
  It is heart-warming story about all the things that a father dose each day. It’s a about how fathers have to leave and go to work every day but the best part of their days is coming home to their children and family.

  I really like this book because while there are a lot of books about how moms love their children, there are not many books that I have seen that talks about dads and their love for their children. It’s a really cute book. My children and I really enjoyed reading it. If you would like to buy this book, you can get your copy at:

Burt's Bees® Intense Hydration Products Review

I have eczema and I thought that this product would work for me because I have really dry skin and this product have a lot of moisturizer in it.  It has a subtle scent. The face wash is nice and don't make very much suds. The moisturizer provides lot of moisture for your face.
   I started using this product one week ago, and when I first started using it my face started to feel softer and look bright, but after a week of using the Burt's Bees® Intense Hydration products, my face started to break out. My hole face developed hives, and became red. I have stopped using this product, and  now and my face is going back to normal thank God!
So if you have eczema you may want to be careful using this product. Maybe you could try using it once a day instead of twice a day.
Also another thing about this product that I don't like is the fact that it is very expansive. The Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream cost 17.99, the  Intense hydration Cream Cleanser cost 9.99, and the Intense Hydration Day Lotion cost 17.99 as well!

I received these products free from , to try and review. All opinions are my own.

Crafts At Home

First I want thank Aileen Lopez for writing this article.
Crafts At Home
Are you looking for a craft to do with your children on a rainy day or for a holiday? There are fun things that you can make with items that you probably have sitting in a drawer or cabinet.

•    Lambs: One of the crafts that you can make for Easter is a lamb. This craft can be made in a few different ways. Use a piece of white construction paper, and trace your child’s hand on it. Glue the print onto a piece of black paper. Stretch a few cotton balls so that they are flat instead of in a circle. Glue the cotton onto the hand print until you reach the thumb. Make an eye on the thumb with a marker. Another way that you can make a lamb is by using lint from your dryer. Collect the lint after you dry clothes, preferably white clothes, and keep it in a bag. Use this lint in the same way as the cotton balls.
•    Eggs: You don’t have to spend money in egg dying kits if you have food coloring in your home. Boil your eggs, and place them in cups that are filled halfway with water. The back of the food coloring box will tell you how many drops you need to add to the water to make the color you want. You can make several different colors that you probably would not get from the kits you buy in a store.

•    Ornaments: If you have applesauce and cinnamon, you can make ornaments to hang on your tree that smell wonderful. Mix about half of a large jar of applesauce with half a cup of white glue. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the mixture. Pour the mixture on a baking pan. Let it sit at room temperature until it is almost hard. Use a cookie cutter in Christmas shapes to cut through the mix. Wait until the ornaments are dry before hanging them on your tree.

•    Hearts: Hearts can be made of any kind of paper that you have. Cut a few hearts in different sizes and string them together with fishing line. Hang the string of hearts over your windows or on a mantel.

SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel Review and Free Product

I was given the SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel to try for free. I really like it because when I use it it dose not sting like peroxide dose. I also love the fact that it is the first, aid gel that protects cuts ,scrapes and burns with 48 hour antibacterial protection. What this means  is that you can keep the bandage on the scrape for 48 hours with out worrying about changing it as long as it stays dry and clean.

  We all know that  removing a bandage can be a bit unpleasant so being able to keep that bandage on for 2  whole days ,knowing the wound is safe from harmful MRSAs is a wonderful.

The kind people who make SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel are offering you a coupon to print, so you can add this to your first aid box and be ready for all those scrapes and cuts. Print your coupon here.

Also you can win a tube to try for yourself! Just enter into my giveaway on the giveaway form. Good Luck!a Rafflecopter giveaway
