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!
