Ovation Brands, Paddington Giveaway! Ends Jan 31st, 2017

Disclaimer: I was provided with product in order to fully appreciate and give an opinion of it. All thoughts are my own and your views may differ to mine. Thank you. 

Ovation Brand's chain of eateries, which include: Old Country Buffet, Hometown Buffet, Country Buffet, Ryan's and Furr's Fresh Buffet are at it again with a great Family Night promotional series featuring Paddington bear for a "Beary Great" time. 

Family Night's occur on Thursdays between 5pm and 8pm and allow kids to participate in fun/educational activities. The dates thus far for the most current event series are as follows:

●       January 12 – Please Look After this Bear

●       January 19 – History of Teddy Bears

●       January 26 – BYOB, Bring Your own Bear

●       February 2 – All Aboard! From Peru to Paddington Station

●       February 9 – Letters to Aunt Lucy

●       February 16 – Dogs Must be Carried


As part of this event, I was lucky enough to get to see the Paddington movie on DVD, which was so emotional for me because I grew up with Paddington Bear and used to collect all manner of toys, pictures and artifacts relating to that lovable bear.


As a true fan, I can definitely say that I loved this movie and wasn't disappointed, at all. I think they did a wonderful job of recreating a real-world Paddington movie and they got the casting just perfectly right and lovely. The fun comes with the little hap-hazzardly bear, who still loves a marmalade sandwich to get him through any emergency and he's always trying to get himself out of a sticky spot that perhaps he never quite realizes he's getting into before it is too late.

The movie is fun, quirky and a great watch for the entire family - even my younger childen sat the whole way through and adored this wonderful little bear.


I am 100% into this series for Ovation Brands and think it might be my favorite one yet. To celebrate the series Ovation Brands wants to offer one of my readers a copy of Paddington on DVD, a Paddington plush bear and 4 complimentary meal tickets for any of the Ovation Brand's eateries.

Nutrisystem in the house!

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to give my own opinion. Your views may differ to mine. Thank you. 

I received my new shipment of Nutrisystem this week and I suddenly remembered to let you know to make SPACE for all your food, of which there is a LOT.


I ordered a lot of shelf stable food this time around and not so much for the freezer as I had just been grocery shopping for the rest of the family and so wanted to make sure I had room.

When my box of shelf stable food arrived, I suddenly remembered that I hadn't cleaned out space because I was SO used to getting frozen foods instead.

A day later and I still hadn't sorted out this issue and the box of food sat on my table.


A day after that, I finally rearranged my cabinets and got all the food in (and on top of) them and bobs your mothers brother, we are ready to go!

Today I celebrated over a nice and delicious Loaded Potato lunch and then enjoyed a great little Nutrisystem pizza for dinner, with a side of veg. GREAT!


I have a couple of items this month that I still haven't tried yet and so I can't wait to share those with you as I give them a go. So far, so good and only 1 meal I've ever disliked, so this has really been a winner for me and I say that with much sincerity.

I can't wait to see where 2017 takes me.

Until next week...

Nutrisystem for the New Year!

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to give my honest opinions. Your views and experiences might differ to mine. Thank you! 

The New Year is here and, while the end of 2016 was rocky (at best) it is never too late to start making changes to get things going in the right direction. 

I started with Nutrisystem in 2016 and have so far lost about 1/3 of the weight I would like to lose and there is still a road ahead that I am still happy to travel. 

My tight pants I bought in July are now getting baggy!
Life isn't always good, and sometimes it can get really tough to focus on food, so when I lost my grandfather (at the end of last year) and then had holidays, food and drink to contend with, while  being so far from friends and family, it was a little bit rough and I did slip a little (though not as much as I could have, thank goodness).

Overall, though, I am proud that I stuck to Nutrisystem for the most part - I ate a bigger Christmas dinner than I was planning on and I have indulged a bit here and there and with everything else that was going on, didn't really mind, when I probably should have made some better decisions.

NS Turkey and Stuffing with (added) Green Beans.
That all being said, I only gained 2lbs over Christmas and that is actually pretty decent! I would like to have not gained, at all, but I can't blame anyone but myself because it wasn't anyone else's fault that I got lazy and also ate a bit more than I should have while I was feeling pretty crappy about life, but is definitely on me and I can turn that around.

I have been sticking to my Nutrisystem breakfasts and I have enjoyed my lunches and dinners, too, and a Nutrisystem dinner was even on the menu for New Year's Eve. - I even went to bed early and would have completely missed 2017 rolling in if it wasn't for all the fireworks that woke me up in the middle of the night! 

This cold air is making it easy for me to make excuses not to exercise but I just picked up some new DVDs to get me moving at home - zero excuses! Time to go! 

Salisbury Steak with Mac'N'Cheese with (added) Spinach and Peppers.
One question that some people do ask me is "are you not bored of this yet?" and the answer really is "NO, I'm not". I actually have been able to figure out which foods I prefer as time goes on and have planned my menu to suit that. There are so many choices that it is easy to pick and choose and I really enjoy making the meals I make for myself a couple of times a week, too. It has been so much easier to stick to than anything else i've tried in the past - anything else and i'd have been completely done by now, so I am definitely happy. 

2017 is going to be my year. No one else is going to be responsible for me. It can be your year too!

Let's get eating, and moving!

Stylish Kitchen Accessories from Trudeau #MGBHGG

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in exchange for my honest views. Your opinions may differ to mine, thank you!

Trudeau is one of my favorite companies for kitchen supplies, gadgets and goodies for any person who loves to cook, bake, entertain and more - you name it, they seem to have it and in some of the best and delightful colors imaginable that you don't really seem to see anywhere else.


I had the pleasure to try out a new bottle opener, a fun wine saver, some awesome little chocolate containers that help to make look-alike Reece's and such, plus so much more.

I cook and bake, a lot. Probably more than humanly necessary, so one of the things I can definitely appreciate is a set of measuring cups. The thing I love about these ones, though, is that they come with a clip at the top so you can take them apart and use them one by one without having to bumble about with the whole stack if you don't want to. They are nice to grip, colorful and easy to store away. If you are in the kitchen a lot, you will love these.


Then this wine saver is the best - I always just used one of the cork-style ones that you just pop in, but this one lets you pull the air out of the wine before you close it, which makes it fresher and saves it a lot better for a lot longer so I can definitely appreciate this, too! I don't drink so much wine, now, but if you like a glass and don't want to drink an entire bottle or waste the rest of the bottle, then this nifty little device is most definitely for you! 


As a tea drinker, I love this steeper, too. It is cute and functional and I'm happy to leave it out on the side on a little drip catcher. Actually quite funny how many people's eyes catch it when they come over for a cup of tea/coffee. A cute little conversation starter, for sure.


Trudeau just puts emphasis on stylish accessories and honestly it makes such a difference when you have products that look and feel as good as these do - they brighten up your kitchen and serve a purpose. I could easily fill up a basket with Trudeau and gift them for any occasion - not just the holidays, but as a treat to myself, a moving in present for a new neighbor, a going away present for a neighbor who is off to a new home, etc. The cook in your life will love them all year around.

To check out some of their other items in their extensive inventory, head on over to the Trudeau website, here, and see what goodies you can find! Also, catch them on social media HERE, too.

Happy home-making!

Crown Royal's Northern Harvest Rye, Fine Blended, Canadian Whisky

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to give my honest opinions. Your views and tastes may differ to mine. Please enjoy responsibly.


Here is a look at Crown Royal's Northern Harvest Rye, Fine Blended, Canadian Whisky, which is the first true rye to come from Crown Royal at a big old 90% rye.

With spicy, sweet and fruity aromas popping out on opening, it promises to give a smooth ride to match its delicate caramel color.

The first sip hits gently and evenly with a mix of lemony-orange, zesty fruitiness, a little spice and earthiness. Light enough to enjoy as it rolls over the tongue and mellows at the back of the throat to leave you with a gentle finish.

I was really impressed with the quality of this product and surprised by the smoothness in the taste, which complimented the color and expectation accordingly.

I have sampled some Canadian Whisky in the past so I did have an idea of what to expect, but really was delighted with just how rounded and delicate it was.

Perfect on its own, on the rocks, or with a little crushed ice and lime or lemon, fine with a little cola but in my opinions far better without, just as it comes.

Crown Royal really do seem to have hit a home run with this one as it looks great in the box, better in the bag and then the design of the bottle itself is a catch to the eye. A gift you can be proud of giving and a bottle you will want to explore, you can't do much wrong with a purchase that will set you back about $30 or so, give or take, depending on where you buy it.

I can imagine sitting out by a fire, toasting in the New Year with this bottle and a few good friends who can appreciate a good drop. Warming the insides and taking in the moment. Very well received and very well done for this first from Crown Royal.

To find out more about Crown Royal, you can visit their website, HERE. You can also find them across social media, including Instagram, HERE, too.

Please enjoy responsibly.



George Dickel's Premium No. 12 Sour Mash Whisky

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to give my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Please enjoy responsibly. Thank you!

George Dickel Premium No. 12 Whisky

Here is a stiff drink that will welcome in 2017 with a kick - George Dickel's No. 12 Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky.

Straight out of the bottle the aroma hits you with a bang. A strong, present and ready to go is standard here with an invitation to come and play.

On the rocks, with nothing mixed in, this one gets you from the beginning, hitting your lips with a "hey, i'm here", broad, warming flavors, grabbing the back of your throat with hints of peppery vanillas and caramels, even a little honey or sweet sugar in this fine hitting drink with a bit of a growly finish.

This is not a drink to be dainty with, it means business and it hits your right where you need it. Perfect just as it is, to put a little hair on your chest and to warm the nights on some cold rocks. I also really enjoy this one in a little coffee.

This particular blend mixes very well with lemon and lime sparkling water, or a little lemonade. It is fine with cola, too, but for the real deal, on its own, on the rocks is best for my own personal taste buds and the coffee makes for a perfect digestif (after dinner drink).

For some more complex recipes, you can head on over to the website and check out the Dickel Tennessee Tuxedo, the Dickel Frozen Mint Shake or the Dickel Whisky Sour, which is absolutely delicious!

Bring this to your party, give it to your host, you're going to have such a good time and they are going to thank you for it! If whisky is your thing and you like it dark and enticing, then this is for you!

Cheers!






DANZKA Vodka, for a Danish Touch to the New Year!

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to give my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Please drink legally and responsibly. Thank you. 

DANZKA Vodka. 


Here is  line of imported vodka, made from 100% whole grain, that I think you might like and which I had the chance to try for myself, this week, too. I have never heard of this brand until now and I wasn't sure what to expect but I liked the simplicity in presentation and wanted to give it my best shot.

I prefer flavored vodka, if I drink it at all, so I tried out the Danzka CranRaz, which is flavored naturally with its cranberry and Raspberry flavors for an interesting and tasteful drink, well enjoyed on its own, on the rocks or with a little dash of lemonade for a simple, longer drink.

I wasn't sure what to expect from the plain vodka as this isn't my kind of drink at all, but I was recently told that if a plain vodka works in egg-nog, it'll work in anything, so I went straight to the egg-nog that I happened to have in my fridge for Christmas and poured a little vodka in it. 

I sat back and thought about my decision and wondered how it would taste and gave it a sniff. It wasn't too bad and so I went for it and took a sip. Guess what?! It tasted GREAT! 

I love egg-nog, I love it spiked a little, but have never even tried to spike it this way before and so I was pleasantly surprised when it actually worked out. Given that, I decided that perhaps it was actually time to give the plain vodka a go on its own, so poured a little into a glass and furnished it with some ice and gave it a try. 

I am not, like I have mentioned before, a vodka person, never really felt the need to head towards it in the store and would usually pick up a bourbon or something like that because I feel like most vodkas that I have tried tasted like petrol or something that could burn a hole in your mouth and so have not ventured too far afield with the vodka.


Did I like it?! I sure did! You can definitely tell that this is a premium quality vodka and it really shines through in the way it mixes well with just about anything. I introduced this brand to my friend who thoroughly enjoyed it more on its own than in a mix, but I preferred it with a little lemonade and ice for a longer drink.

DANZKA, to me, is very light compared to some other brands I have tried and doesn't have that heavy-fuel-filled bite to it that a lot of the cheaper vodkas do have. I couldn't drink it straight for long, but I could definitely handle a shot of it here and there at a party or get-together, too. 

I did introduce this brand to a group of friends over Christmas and they all seemed to comment on the design of the bottle and that it looked pretty fashionable and that it might even be great to use it for something else once the bottle is done, so extra points for that to the company! 

There are more flavors to choose from than days of the week, too, which is always a bonus - flavors including citrus or grapefruit flavors, which are refreshing and new to me, and which I don't think I've seen in a vodka before.

Overall, I was pleased with the taste and quality of this vodka, found it to mix well, which is even better, and it was well received by friends and family. 

If you would like to know more about this brand, you can visit their website for more information, here! You can find them on Twitter, too.

I would love to know if you've tried DANZKA before and what you thought of it! Pick some up for your party, tonight!

Trail's End Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Hits The Nail on the Head!

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to share my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Please enjoy responsibly. Thank you!

TRAIL'S END KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY

One drink that I love is Bourbon. If I were to walk in to a bar and be told that I could have pretty much anything I'd like then the first thing i'd ask for is usually a bourbon and coke to take the "edge" off if the drink is on the cheaper side, or on the rocks if it is a little more expensive.

Now, I am not an expert on bourbon, I don't drink it enough for that, but I have tried enough in my lifetime (having used to live and work in a bar) to know a good one when I find it - and Trail's End hits the nail on the head with this one.

Opening the bottle, an air of peaches, sweet florals, a little caramel in there, too - nothing overpowering, but all-together very inviting on the nose.

On its own, without a mixer, I get a creamy, light, chocolaty and slightly nutty flavor with a warming touch on the tongue and a slight hit on the back of the throat tinged with a little low spice as it goes down. It is SO smooth that you could easily enjoy one or two shorts without another thought, but if you love a longer drink, it does mix well, too.

"Trail’s End® is an ultra premium, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey finished with Oregon Oak." - (hrdspirits.com)

I mixed a shot of Trail's End with a little cola, nothing too much, but enough to taste and then I tried a longer drink with extra cola and lots of ice. The flavor kept well all ways, but I just adore this on its own, without anything added at all for a nice, light, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey I could absolutely get into any day of the week and for any occasion.

At about $49 a bottle, I had high expectations of Trail's End and really didn't know what to expect. However, from start to finish, Trail's End really scores top numbers across the board from me and wins in every direction.

I would absolutely turn up to someone's party with this for New Year, or gift for a special occasion. It is a drop meant to be shared and which could easily help get memories made.

To find out more about Trail's End and the story behind it, you can head on over HERE. You can also find out more on Twitter, here, too!

One of my new favorite's this year and would be happy to see in 2017 with this one by my side!

Please enjoy responsibly, but enjoy all the same - one you won't want to miss out on, and which you'll definitely want to visit with again.

Celebrate with EFFEN VODKA - Raspberry or Green Apple Flavors!

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to give my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Please enjoy responsibly. Thank you. 


If you enjoy a little vodka to welcome in your new year, then these flavors are something to consider this year, with EFFEN VODKA.

My friends and I were able to try out the GREEN APPLE and the RASPBERRY flavors, which are both light and flavorful. The raspberry flavor I could drink on its own and not have to mix but put on the rocks and away we go. The GREEN APPLE flavor is just as easy to drink but I really enjoyed this mixed with a little lemonade.



I did try out a few concoctions to see if there were any mixes that you might enjoy and some of the things we tried to mix in were: orange, lemonade, cranberry juice, cola, a sports drink, lime juice, energy drinks and tonic water.

The orange was alright but not for me. The lemonade worked well with both flavors and was light and refreshing. Cranberry juice worked a lot better with the raspberry flavor but not so much with the green apple, so I thought - but my friend did like it in the green apple more, so it will depend on your taste buds.

Weirdly enough, my favorite mixer was the sports drink, which was a well-known sports drink that was only mixed for fun, at first, but which actually did work a lot better than any of us expected.


The cola was a hit all around, held the flavor of both the green apple and of the raspberry flavors and the tonic water was a hit with most, but not with me as I do not like tonic water to begin with, so that was never going to be high up there on my list of things to mix anything with, period. If you do like tonic water though, you may enjoy that with a little EFFEN in it.

I tell you what did hit the spot for me and that was (in a tall glass) 1/3 RASPBERRY EFFEN,  2/3rds of cranberry juice, a little ice and a dash of lime juice. You can shake it up or stir it, but either way works well and this would be my go-to with this flavor.

For some more complex concoctions you can find recipes on the EFFEN website, here. You can also follow them on social media, including EFFEN's Facebook page.

Overall, our opinions across the board were that this vodka is a fun, flavorful drink that is clearly on the higher end of vodkas, that you would love someone to bring to your party and one that you could gift knowing that it was going to be widely enjoyed. Retailing for about $25, depending on where you shop, and worth the money you pay for this premium vodka, that won't leave a bad taste in your mouth the next morning.

Please enjoy responsibly!

Happy New Year!

Camus VS Elegance, a Cognac for the New Year

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to give my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Please enjoy responsibly. 


New year is a stones throw away and the holiday's are not over yet.

I had the chance to try out Camus VS Elegance and, as someone who can really appreciate and enjoy a nice Cognac - Camus does not disappoint.

with a light caramel-gold color right out of the bottle and onto some rocks, this is a smooth, light and delightful drop that I would honestly drink alone without a mixer because it is so delicate and refreshing on the tongue.

This drop fills the air with a fruity, sweet note that doesn't overpower and which lends a boost to the taste as you sip it down.

Think of a little vanilla, caramel, cinnamon in the background, a easy to sip, lots of character and a gift that keeps on giving - A bottle of which can rage from about $27 to $45 or more depending on where you buy. No matter what you pay for it, it is easily worth every penny and one of the best Cognacs I've had the pleasure to try.

If you were to mix it, though, for a longer drink, perhaps a cola would suffice or (as Camus's website suggests) a little green tea, whichever you prefer. I wouldn't mix this down too much as you wouldn't want to drown the flavor. It really is wonderful just on its own.

Cognac reminds me of nights I spent with friends in good times living in England. I rarely drink it these days, but this is such a warming and comforting drink that I would be delighted to gift this to someone for a holiday or special event and would happily see in the new year with a short glass or two of Camus VS Elegance and some festive cheer.

To check out more about Camus Vs Elegance, you can visit HERE. You can also find them on social media, too - Twitter is my preferred platform (@CamusCognac).

Please remember to enjoy responsibly and savor every sip!

Happy New Year!

Gift Yourself with Timex This Season

Disclaimer: I was given items to review in return for my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Thank you. 


What better way to gift this year than with a new watch from Timex?


Reliable, loyal and well made, Timex has been a staple in many homes for long enough to have a great reputation in my household and I really enjoy this brand. 

With watches for everyone, I got to choose a men's and a women's piece and I think these speak elegant and wearable, stylish and useful for everyday wear. 


I especially love this turquoise color on mine, which is a color I enjoy and this watch is great when i'm out walking or getting about - I don't usually take my phone with me and I do rely on a watch for time or else I have no idea what is going on and/or where I need to be because the phone is just not something that I became accustomed to. 


A watch is still a very present and needed tool and makes a fabulous accessory to any outfit so you could treat yourself to a new one and be very excited about it!

If you'd like to check out other watches by Timex, you can find them at their website, HERE, where there is also an after-holiday sale, making it all the better for your pocket, too!

These are easily fabulous gifts and made it effortlessly into our gift guide, this year!

Adesso Artists Digital Canvas at Hammacher Schlemmer #MGBHGG

Disclaimer: I was provided with products to try out to give you my honest opinions. Your views and experiences may differ to mine. Thank you. 


The Artist's Digital Canvas from Adesso at Hammacher Schlemmer!

Hammacher Schlemmer is one of my favorite places to shop for unique and exciting holiday gifts and this year is no different. I was given the chance to review their best graphics tablet and it is one of the best things they've had to offer us, yet!



As a part time photographer and artist, this kind of tech is everything I love and it really helps to have a tablet that enables me to edit the things I want to use and to create new additions to the tools, borders, palettes, patterns etc that I already use.

I have a large desk, so setting up the tablet was a breeze and it fits in nicely, even though is seems big, it isn't overbearing - it is just right, and big enough for large maneuvering and great freedom of movement for my hand/arm.


The CyberTablet T12 from ADESSO is easy to set up, and jut basically plug-and-plays but there are drivers that come with it if you need them and there is a manual so you know what to do. It comes with a graphics pen and several spare tips for the pen as well as a stand so you can keep it nice, clean and in a spot where you can easily find it. 

I have attempted some edits with this tablet, already and found it really easy compared to older tablets that I have tried out in the past and the extra space is a bonus. You can save to the buttons on the side and you can create and draw with different brush settings for great art pieces. Mine aren't quite finished yet and are a work in progress so I will share those when they are finally complete. 

Here is an idea of how close you can get with cut outs, though - this is from my FIRST try and so even when you haven't used this set up before, it is incredibly close and easy. 


It is a SMALL picture, so apologies for that, but you can see my point that even when working with smaller photos, you can get a good result. The precision was pretty spot on and it worked for what I needed so I was very happy with that. 

There are programs online that are more suited to your needs with this tablet than others and it depends on what you plan to do with it to which ones are going to be best for you, but I love to work with it in basic programs like paint and then switch out the photos to a fuller editing program for the final touches. 

This is great for any beginner or for someone who is familiar with the concept already and so I would definitely recommend this as a hot gift this Christmas and, as ever coming from Hammacher Schlemmer, it has a lifetime warranty, too. 

To check out some of the other fabulous items Hammacher Schlemmer has on their website - like juke boxes, drones, kids trains, exercise equipment, high tech gadgets and items that you are not going to find anywhere else - go HERE!

There is truly something for everyone and this is why they are yet again part of our Christmas and Holiday gift guide and remain a sturdy favorite!

Happy Gifting!

Nonni's Biscotti Makes THE Perfect Treat #MGBHGG

Disclaimer: I was provided with items in order to give my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Thank you! 

I love Biscotti and it is no secret. I try to keep them to a minimum these days because I don't overdo it on treats, but my whole family can appreciate the deliciousness of a Nonni's Biscotti. 

I recently got to try out several different flavors from Nonni's, including pumpkin spice, which I've tried in just about everything before, but never Biscotti - suffice to say, it was a hit, I love it, I just don't think you can go wrong with pumpkin spice EVERYTHING.


My children loved the gingerbread variety and these would make a delicious addition to a stocking this Christmas - and you could even leave a few out for Santa instead of traditional cookies. They all come in individual wrappers, so they'll keep better overnight, too and won't go to waste, or have you rush to eat them so to prove that Santa was there! If, of course, you do the Santa thing at Christmas.


Of course, the best way to eat Nonni's Biscotti is by dipping them in coffee, which makes them deliciously moist and yummy and makes for a nice little treat on a break or around the office, at home or even in kids lunch boxes, with a glass of milk.

There is no way these could miss out on being included in our Holiday Gift Guide this year because they are just great for everything! Friend's come over? Give them a treat. Need something in the stockings? Give them Nonni's Biscotti. Need to take something with you to a friend's house over the holiday? Great! Take a box of Nonni's Biscotti and you're good to go, fantastic.

Check out the full range of flavors from Nonni's by heading over to their website, here and also keeping an eye on them, on social media.
