The True Story of Puss 'n Boots Review

The True Story of Puss 'n Boots features the talented and loved Emmy and Golden Globe winner William Shatner as the voice of Puss. The True Story of Puss 'n Boots from Phase 4 Films, is an animated movie based on the classic children's story Puss ‘N Boots by Charles Perrault.

The True Story of Puss 'n Boots is about a young farmer's son who 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.

Sadly, this movie didn't rate well with my family, especially my children.  Within the first 5 minutes, my kids were telling me how "weird and strange" it was.   After about 15 minutes they both decided that they didn't like it and weren't going to watch the rest of it.

This isn't the Puss 'n Boots that I grew up with and loved as a child.  I will say that some of the music and scenes were fun but I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone.

Scrolls From Santa Review and Giveaway - 2 Winners

For every child, Santa is one of those magical memories that make the Christmas season so much fun.  Do you remember how excited you were as a child to see Santa in the mall?  Or to lay awake in bed on Christmas Eve, hoping to hear his bells or maybe get a glimpse of him in your living room?  What could be more magical this Christmas than to receive a letter from Santa?

This is the time of year when I enjoy watching the magic of the holiday season through the eyes of my children.  

They see everything differently and I cherish being able to see the excitement on their faces.  Scrolls from Santa is the perfect way to bring the magic of Santa to any child and put a smile on their face this Christmas!

My daughter will be 8 years old in January and is asking too many Santa questions this year.  

I know that this will be the last year of complete, innocent Christmas magic, so I'm doing everything possible to make those memories extra special this year! 

Scrolls from Santa aren't like any other letter from Santa you've seen over the years!  They are personalized, handmade letters from Santa on unique, parchment scroll paper, complete with burnt edges!  They are also shipped directly from the North Pole, just look at the stamps and postmark! 

The North Pole, Silver Bell and You're Snow Naughty packages are discreetly shipped inside a cardboard box in order to prevent damage to the package and ornament!  I couldn't believe how cute and durable they were - way more than I had anticipated!

Scrolls from Santa are available for the Naughty & Nice!  They also carry a great selection of extras and stocking stuffers including, Christmas glasses, lumps of coal, insta-snow powder, lumps of coal, Rudolph silly bands and reindeer collars!

Each letter from Santa is beautifully detailed with details that only Santa would know, complete with calligraphic label and hand-writing.  Each one has an official "Desk of S. Claus" gold seal sticker at the bottom of the letter.   I love how the paper has burnt edges, they look like a letter from history - perfect for Santa!  Everything about Scrolls from Santa was highly impressive, they are simply MAGICAL in every possible way.

Dyson Hand Dryers - Innovative and Great for the Environment

Several years ago my husband and I were in the market for a new vacuum cleaner.  We shopped around while we compared prices, quality, durability and reputation.  All of our research led us back to the same name... Dyson!

Dyson has been the leader in vacuum cleaner sales for nearly 20 years.  Now it's been proposed that they will quickly become the market leader in restroom hand dryers as well.  The Dyson air blade hand dryer is stylish, innovative and green.   It allows businesses to save money while making a positive impact on the environment.  

Dyson hand dryers save time and energy without the waste of paper towels.  I wish my kids elementary school had hand dryers in their restrooms.  Children are so messy and wasteful and one of these would eliminate all of that.  Oh... the possibilities!

Dyson hand dryers would be the perfect addition to an business, especially schools, doctors and hospitals, grocery stores, the Vet's office and even public restrooms.

As a very satisfied Dyson customer, my only regret is that I didn't purchase one sooner!

Doctor Dreadful Zombie Lab Review

Have you ever thought to yourself that it would be fun to eat bubbly brains, zombie skin and a barf filled beverage?  Come on, be honest!  I have two children, a son and a daughter, and my daughter is always the one getting dirty and not afraid to try anything!

The Doctor Dreadful Zombie Lab is perfect for any child that loves to experiment and try new things!

Not only do they get to experiment and create sweet treats - they also get to eat their creations!  From bubbling brains and zombie skin to eyeball bugs and zombie barf!

In fact, you get to eat everything you make!  We took this as the perfect family afternoon activity and we had a great time!  Lots of laughs, funny faces and Ewww's and even a few Yum's!

I'll be honest and tell you that I'm easily grossed out and I thought the Doctor Dreadful Zombie Lab was quite creepy!  Even though I knew it wasn't the "real thing," I had a hard time choking down the zombie brain barf!  

Just the thought of it made me queasy and the texture took it over the top!  It tasted good but the texture was like a big slimy gob of snot!  ICK!  The consensus was the same from all of us, it tasted really good but the texture was just too much to handle!  It felt like swallowing a big ball of slime!

The insects, spiders and zombie skin were all quite good!  They tasted like very sweet jello!  The zombie skin  and insects were our favorite - it was almost like the perfect combination between jello and fruit snacks!

The bubbling zombie brains tasted like a super sweet fruit punch.  Add a little bit of Sprite and ice cream for the perfect party punch!

Simply put... Disturbing, Disgusting and mostly Delicious!  It's perfect for kids because it's everything they love - fun and gross.

Cowgirl Chocolates - Sweet & Spicy Chocolates Review and Giveaway

Chocolate is my weakness.  I was recently lucky enough to receive a variety of the NEW chocolate truffle bars from Cowgirl Chocolates.  They are available in 8 delicious flavors from mild to spicy or a combination of both to satisfy even the most sensitive and complicated taste buds!

To my surprise, I had chocolate in my mailbox the very next day.  How's that for quick service?  Granted, I only live about 1 1/2 hours away from the Cowgirl Chocolates riding arena.  But the fact that they are so quick to package and ship their tasty chocolates is highly impressive.  

The first thing I noticed about my chocolates was their cute packaging.  Bold, colorful and eye-catching!

Cowgirl Chocolates will give your taste buds a kick!  They come in several mouth-watering flavors; including mild and spicy flavors. From chocolate truffle bars (what I got to sample) to caramels to candy bars to gift baskets!

They were all amazing delicious, even the spicy ones.  I'm not a "spicy" kind of girl, but I was pleasantly surprised by the spicy chocolate truffle bars.  A little bit of spice and the perfect amount of sweet!  It's a toss up, but I think the spicy toffee was my favorite.

Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 19 product awards and 2 packaging awards and is located in Moscow, Idaho.  Which I happen to think is very cool since I was born, raised and grew up less than 2 hours away - at one point I even lived in Moscow.

SavvyCents Coupon Wallet Organizer Review and Giveaway

 I'm one of those people who is very organized and everything has its place.  Being organized is something that I strive for and it's extremely important that I keep my money saving coupons in order as well.  I divide and organize them by expiration date.

With an accordion style file system inside the wallet organizer you can separate money, coupons, receipts or store discount cards by spending categories. 

I love this wallet more than any other coupon organizer I've tried.  

It's the perfect size, durable, functional and very stylish.  It is not only the perfect organizer, it doubles as the perfect wallet!  Giving me one more way to multi-task.

The Savvycents wallet organizer comes with file cards and pre-printed labels so that you can label each category. There are also blank labels that allow you to customize your wallet organizer based on your own personal spending categories. You no longer have to carry envelopes or zip lock bags to separate your money and coupons. Your change will fit nicely in the coin pocket located on the backside of the wallet. 

It also has 6 pockets for your debit card and store discount cards making them easy to find and at your fingertips. On the opposite side there is a place for your driver’s license and your checkbook.  It also comes in three stylish colors: black, red and pink!

Shop Amazon's Holiday Countdown to Black Friday Store

For the past three years I have done the majority of my Christmas shopping on Amazon.  I earn and save my rewards through Swagbucks all year long and then use those credits to make my purchases for my kids Christmas gifts.

This year I was able to get 2 high dollar items for $0 out of pocket!  I purchased the gifts that Santa will be bringing and saved $300!  My kids are going to be so excited on Christmas morning and I can't wait to see their faces when they see what's under the Christmas tree.

My daughter is obsessed with LEGOS and my son is obsessed with the Pittsburgh Steelers and collecting sports memorabilia.  

I chose the LEGO Grand Emporium for my daughter, a $150 item and a Steelers Team Signed Football with certificate of authenticity, a $159 item for my son.  Since making my purchase, the price of the football has increased to $199!
