Curtain & Bath Outlet for Holiday Gifting Essentials PLUS #Giveaway! - Ends 12/14/16. #MGBHGG

Disclaimer: I was provided products in exchange for my honest opinions and your views may differ from mine. Thank you! 

Curtain & Bath Outlet has been one of my favorite sites for last minute gifts since I found them a couple of years ago and so it is no surprise that they make an appearance in this years Holiday Gift Guide. 

Specializing in curtains, drapes and window treatments, but also offer much more with sheets and bedding and home decor that will also make for fabulous gifting.

Here is a nice bed set that you might like to pick up as a gift for a relative who seems to have everything, someone who likes a little style or someone who can appreciate a nice new set of sheets from Curtain & Bath Outlet. 


This particular set is called "Sally" and is a red, blackish blue and white patterned set that brings your room to life. I personally love it, which is why I chose this one, but it looks even better in my room than it looked on the website, so top marks for that, too! 


This set screams comfort to me and there is truly nothing like a new set of sheets on your bed. This is the second set that I have had from Curtain & Bath Outlet and they have not disappointed me yet. My husband likes a thicker set, but I love this warm and cozy set that brightens up the room - great for me because this means I usually get my own covers and he hogs all the others, so win-win.

The Sally quilt set is available in Twin, Full/Queen or King sizes and cost around $39.99 for the quilt and 2 pillow cases. I also got to try out some nice, white and comfy sheets, too, which I can NOT get enough of - some of the snuggliest sheets ever and I need MORE!

There are so many great curtains, accessories and things that you might like to brighten your home with that it is well worth checking Curtain & Bath Outlet out at any time of year, but it is always great to find a gift that keeps on giving, which you can find here!

Even better, though - the great folks at Curtain & Bath Outlet want to offer one of our lucky readers a $25 gift code to use towards a purchase on their website! How nice is that? That would go a long way towards a new quilt, set of curtains or sheet set and/or would make a great Christmas gift in and of itself. SO...

All you have to do, to be in with a chance of winning the $25 gift code to Curtain & Bath Outlet is enter via the rafflecopter, below. You must reside in the U.S and be 18 years or older to enter (or have parent's permission to do so). Please use a valid email address so that we know where to contact you if you win - emails are not used for any other reason than to contact winners and are never disclosed.

STEM Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set from Learning Resources! #MGBHGG

As a homeschooling mom, I am constantly on the look-out for fun and educational ways to teach the children. When I was given the chance to check out this Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set from Learning Resources, I jumped at the opportunity. 


The idea behind this set is to help kick start the learning process for basic coding and allows you to tell the mouse (who is called Colby, by the way) to go in different directions, mapping out a route from start to finish based on the structure of your maze or area of "play".



We took time to build up the play area and set out a little maze with our cheese at the end for the mouse's final destination. I showed the children how to program the mouse and, though it was a little confusing, it is easy to start to understand that if you press this for X amount of times and that for Y amount of times then the mouse will end up at point Z. 



My son, who is 3, is not particularly interested in the programming process, yet, but loves to watch the mouse move around and get the cheese, so this is not an activity set meant for younger children. However, my 5 year old had a lot of fun inputting the commands for the mouse to move, figuring out new routes as the mazes changed and randomly programming the mouse to see where it might go,


There are 83 pieces in this set, which is enough to make all of the suggestions on the cards and to ignite a child's curiosity and imagination, while having fun and learning at the same time.


My daughter has been able to learn how to input the code for the mouse all by herself now, and is working on some of the more complex cards, but she really enjoys the reward of watching that mouse go exactly where she wants it to be. So much fun and something she can use for a long while, and which can be shared with my younger son as he grows, too - truly a gift that keeps on giving.



The Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set is high on our list of must-have gifts this year and you can find them in lots of your favorite stores, as well as at the Learning Resources website, HERE!

To check out other items on this years Holiday Gift Guide, please follow us on Twitter with hashtag #MGBHGG. We'd love to hear your opinions and get your feedback on what you'd like to see this year, too!

Happy Coding!

Nutrisystem week 18 Update! #NSNation

Discalimer: I was provided with products in exchange for my honest opinions based on personal experiences. Your views and experiences may differ to mine. Thank you. 

Here we are, so many weeks in and it has been a really long few weeks past, to say the least - holiday food, party season, you name it, which all isn't helped at all by the fact that I have been on a plateau for so long it is hard to even remember. 

HOWEVER. That being said, the scales actually moved in the right direction this week and I am now at 265.4lbs, which is a huge cry from the 298lbs that I was when I started this journey. 


It is sometimes hard to stick to eating the food that you are given on Nutrisystem - you would think it would be super-easy grabbing something already there, prepared, but sometimes you really have to get organized to make it work. 

If I go out during the day, which I usually do, I really have to keep an eye on the clock and make sure I keep eating on a good schedule and not play catch up when I get home. I make sure I take snacks and lunches out with me that I can eat on the go (lunch bars or something I can microwave depending on my location) and shakes if I need those, instead of the snacks. 

I am trying hard to push water, which is getting harder and harder by the moment but I am trying to figure out which is best for me on this front - not overly sure quite why it is SO difficult to consume the water I need to stay hydrated and still can't quite figure out why I can't just go and get a glass of water instead of a cup of coffee. It is boggling my mind. The only way I seem to keep the water intake up, which has remained constant, is by buying water by the gallon and keeping it close by. 

I am not bored of Nutrisystem, even this far into it, which is a great sign for those of you who have tried any similar plans and not quite made it this far - I don't feel bored by my choices and I never feel deprived. 

I love the new crepes that are now available for breakfast and still my favorite remains to be the breakast sandwiches. I love the hamburgers and just about anything you can put in a bun, but I really love the portion sizes and now find it really hard to eat more than I need. I eat a lot of vegetables and so that was never an issue and I am never hungry. 

I have been a little sad about the season changing as I am not so active in the cold but I am trying to combat that with indoor exercise machines, then outside with walks to and from places that are a little harder to get to and require an extra push.

I was worried for a moment seeing the scale not do anything, but glad it went down a bit this week. Each week is a new week to try my best and every day is a new day to achieve the best I can for me. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving this past week -  I am truly thankful for the opportunity afforded to me by Nutrisystem, to really try and get my body back into some kind of shape. I will forever be grateful for that! 

Until next time, folks!

Nutrisystem, week 16!

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

This is a late update for last week, week: 16.

I have been on Nutrisystem now since July and I lost quite a lot of weight, which I have been thrilled about. This week, however, was the first week that I put on a pound instead of losing or maintaining, so I have been feeling a little disheartened with that, though not too much as 1lb is better than 20lbs, so I can't really complain about that, but I would, at this point like to see the scales moving instead of hovering around the same weight every week. 

Nutrisystem waffles with scramble egg and hot sauce.

I am doing everything I can, sticking to the food, having my flex meals, exercising and all that, but I will admit that this week I ate a little more cake than I should have and soda, which I don't usually drink, but it was available so I did. I have been a little less active since the air is more frigid, too, so I just need to keep motivated.

Nutrisystem Meatball Melt and Salad.

I have been tracking my food and there are days when I just don't drink enough water and so I have upped that over the last couple of days, too. My decrease in water intake seems to have come with buying a water filter! I don't know if it is just that it is more convenient to carry about a half a gallon of water at the time and just reach for it or what, but for some reason I was easily drinking far more water when I was buying it in bottles - if anyone actually has a theory on this, I'd love to hear it, because I'd prefer to save cash and use the filter, but somehow my butt would rather make a cup of coffee while i'm out in the kitchen, than pour water!? I don't know!

I'm not going to sweat it over a pound as you can put that on in a day doing just about anything, but I certainly would like to see that weight going the other way. It is a lot harder at this stage, but not impossible as I still have a long way to go! Fingers crossed!



All I know is that since a 1lb gain last week, I have been trying to push more water, trying to get more done, get more active, change it up a little and yet go back to eating breakfast, lunch and dinner and not switching that routing up, out or around, which I tried before to get over this plateau, which didn't work. I did pick up 3 new workout DVDs on Thursday, so i've been using those, too. Maybe I just need to keep pushing and keep it fresh!

Look out for the next update to see how it went...

Keep on keeping on!







NUTRiBULLET Pro - The gift That Keeps on Giving, This Season! #MGBHGG

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

This is the NUTRiBULLET Pro...


Those of you who are familiar with Magic Bullet may also already know about the NUTRiBULLET and its family of devices in the NUTRiBULLET range, which includes, but is not limited to, the NUTRiBULLET Pro!

The NUTRiBULLET Pro extractor comes in the color of "Champagne", boast a 900 watt motor, is 50% more powerful than the last model and also has a 32 oz capacity, which is plenty enough to keep you on the go, whatever you have planned and wherever you need to be.


I was lucky enough to get to try out the machine plus some of these NUTRiBULLET Superfood blends, which you can add in to any of your drinks, smoothies or recipes for an extra boost. There are various you can add but my favorites are the Cleansing Greens and the Super Boost, which has Chia, Goji, Cacao and Maca in it and gives a yummy (chocolately) taste! 

To make a Nutri Blast/Shake/Smoothie etc, you just add all your ingredients, fill with liquid to the fill level and tighten on your blade. You then tip your cup of choice upside down and give it a little jiggle and place securely on the power-base. You'll click the cup into position, let it blast your food down until you are satisfied with the consistency you have achieved and voila! You've made yourself a delicious, nutritious drink full of yummy foods that make you happy.


I like to make very simple smoothies to sip in the day to make sure I get the vegetables I need, which I do sometimes find really hard to keep up with on the plan I am currently on, so actually the NUTRiBULLET Pro has been extremely useful for that. One of my favorite smoothies includes veggies, spinach, a little of one of the powders and a little frozen blueberries instead of ice, to thicken it up. It is simple, doesn't contain anything I can't eat and I can take it on the go.


I also have a love for soup this time of year and I do love chunky soups, but prefer them to be smooth and creamy looking, which is easy to achieve with the NUTRiBULLET Pro. I just cook up my soup, wait until it is cooled down, completely, and then give it a whirl in the NUTRiBULLET Pro and store for later. When I want to grab my soup later on, I just pour, heat in the pan and serve. Delicious!


There isn't much the NUTRiBULLET Pro can't blast smooth and that makes me happy! I enjoyed the regular NUTRiBULLET but the Pro has a bit of an edge on that and I love the bigger capacity and color of the unit, which looks nice on my counter-top and stays out all the time.

Along with the NUTRiBULLET Pro and accessories, I also did get a recipe book - you can also view more recipes online, too. There are lots of ideas to keep things fresh and I personally have used it now a few times a week since I got it, so it is one of those extremely useful machines that you didn't know you had to have, until you have it and refuse to let it go! Absolutely 10/10!

The NUTRiBULLET retails for $99.99 and this makes for an affordable gift this Holiday Season, or for any occasion.

The NUTRiBULLET Pro is part of our Holiday Gift Guide recommendations for 2016, which you can follow on social media with #MGBHGG.

Happy giving!!

Captain Morgan's Jack-O Blast Brings Pumpkin to Your New Favorite Shot! #MGBHGG

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


Halloween might have been and gone, but there is one kind of pumpkin left that is going to be good for any time of year and that is Captain Morgan's Jack-O Blast!

It comes in this quaint bottle that looks just like a pumpkin and supplies these buttery-pumpkin shots that go down smooth and easy on a cold night. 

Great to show off at a party - who doesn't like a fancy bottle? And perfect decor all on its own! This one has grabbed the attention of friends as they've rolled in for coffee this week as it has sat on my counter and they've ooh'd and aah'd over it as most of them also love pumpkin everything. 

I tried this on its own and it tasted delicious, I also tasted it in a cup of coffee, which worked surprisingly well, too. I do have to recommend you drink responsibly because it is so good that you might forget you are drinking alcohol with it being so sweet, smooth and drinkable.

Definitely great party shots and absolutely going to carry through any season, so if you see it in the store, you could grab some for gifting this holiday season, too - perfect for the friend who loves pumpkin everything, and a little tipple, too! I bet it would even taste great in a rum-cake!

You can find Captain Morgan's Jack-O Blast online for more information, and across social media. I'd love to hear from you if you've tried it already - let me know what you think!

Drink-up, me-hearties!

Canvas Factory Canvas Giveaway! - #MGBHGG

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

CANVAS FACTORY


As someone who has taken photos her entire life, I can certainly attest to how great it feels to get that one photo every now and then that just HAS to go on the wall. 

As a family of 6, it is hard sometimes to get everyone to smile at once, or to look great in a picture, which is why, when I got this one, I was so excited to be able to get it printed out and up on display. 
I was even more excited when Canvas Factory offered me the chance to try out their printing service and had that special family-photo printed out for me. 

I love black and white and so decided to have it printed in black and white, on a canvas that measures 16 x 20 inches and the image wraps right around this particular canvas, which is just how I wanted it. 

There are several ways you can edit your photo to make it look how you like, before deciding on a final print. There are also various sizes and styles of canvas to suit your preferences, too.

I wasn't too sure about the quality that my photo would produce when I uploaded it as I haven't printed anything out this large in a long while, but I was so very pleasantly surprised with how this turned out and found a great spot for it in my hallway on the wall as soon as it arrived.

I am so thrilled to finally have a photo of all 6 of us, as usually there are 3, 4 or 5 of us, but rarely all 6 of us in the same place at the same time and so this is definitely a wonderful gift to us all. 

GIVEAWAY

Speaking of gifts - the good folk at Canvas Factory would like to offer one of our readers the chance to print out a canvas in the same dimensions as the one I have featured here in my review. 

All you have to do, to be in with a chance of winning your own print on canvas, just in time for the holiday season, is enter via the rafflecopter, below!

Giant Yellow Duck For ALL Your Holiday Needs!

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


Thanksgiving is upon us and what better way to celebrate than with a little fun in the form of a GIANT YELLOW DUCK?!?!

If you are still with hot weather and want to make this holiday season happy and happening, then this is seriously all you are going to need to bring people to the house, to hang out and to have a good time.

It doesn't take long to blow up (even if you want to do it the conventional way) and it looks perfectly spectacular once it is up and in the water!



Once up, throw that duck into the pool and VOILA! Instant state of relaxation once you assemble yourself on the fabulous floating duck...


You can't beat this thing for fabulousness, it is approx. 87 inches long X 71 inches wide when inflated and that means big enough to fit a couple of children or a grown adult far too easily to have THIS MUCH fun!

Who needs a real turkey for Thanksgiving?! Not us! This is far too much fun to have, instead, even though by "instead" I probably mean as-well-as, seeing as we love turkey just as much as we love this inflatable!

If you want to bring the fun to your pool, then head on over to their website and check out the Giant Yellow Duck and bring it to your next party - you're going to be the bringer of fun, we love it!

Take a dive, this Thanksgiving, and for all your holiday needs - the Giant Yellow Duck gets our seal of approval! You know you want one!! 

Splish!

Skylanders Halloween Costumes are GO!

Disclaimer: I was provided with a costume in exchange for my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Thank you.

How about Skylanders costume for Halloween this year!? They are extremely bright, fun and colorful and kids everywhere will love them if they are anything like my daughter, who just had way too much fun getting her Jet-Vac costume out to play with as soon it turned up on our doorstep. 


She doesn't want to take the outfit off and I love it, too. It is long and warm so it is going to be a lot more comfortable for her out in the cold instead of wearing a princess dress and she gets to walk with her big feet! 

She has always loved to play dress-up and with so many Skylanders characters to pick from, including: Spyro, Jet-Vac, Snapshot, WallopChop Chop AND Kaos, I am glad she found an outfit for Halloween this year that she can thoroughly enjoy all year around. 

This particular outfit came with foot covers, hand covers, the full costume (with chest piece) and mask. It is great quality and a perfect fit. I'm thrilled we found the right costume for her in the 11th hour because I had no idea what to pick for her, but she ADORES this, so WELL DONE, Skylanders!


Here is your line-up of costumes, available: 

·         Kaos 
o   Package includes robe and mask
o   $27.99
o   Available at Amazon.com, Walmart

Who will YOUR kids pick for Halloween? Will they steer towards Skylanders, too? Maybe they also want a little extra in their candy bag with Skylanders Imaginators, which is also available right now across various gaming platforms, along with Candy Coated Chopscotch!! Oh yes! Way more fun than actual candy - and candy is pretty fun!

Whatever you're going to choose this year, make it a fun and safe Halloween - I can't wait to see all your outfits across social media...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Sensible Portions Garden Veggie Chips for Halloween!


Sensible Portions Garden Veggie Chips (Ghosts + Bats) in Sea Salt flavor are just what you're looking for if you don't want the sweet and candy of Halloween, but really enjoy the salty and savory snack, instead.

Just add a few bags of these to your Halloween festivities and you're good to go - we tried them, we liked them and they were crispy, crunchy and good - the fact that they looked like ghosts and bats was a bonus and we had some fun with them before they were all eaten up.



Throw some in a bow to put on the table for dinner or just hand out bags of these instead of candy, whatever you like - I wouldn't be disappointed to get a bag in my Halloween bag this year, that's for sure.

For more info on these, check them out on social media, their website and pick some up in all good stores, like Target, just in time for Halloween!

OOFO's Review and Giveaway! (2 Winners!) Ends 11/18/16

kupana wahines corner disclaimer   
*Original story by Kupana Wahines Corner

In Hawaii, flip flops (known as "slippahs" by everyone) are worn year round! So as you can imagine, I was excited when I received my pair of OOFO's to review and share my thoughts and opinions on our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide with you all.

Ever wonder what it would feel like to have a cloud surrounding your feet? THAT my readers is exactly what a pair of OOFO's will make your feet feel! I have NEVER put on a pair of shoes on my feet that will ever compare to OOFO's!! And I do not think I EVER will! I got to bless my feet with a pair of their Women's OOriginal Sandal in the color Fuchsia (because I love the color Pink) They are made with their own "OOfoam" which is designed to absorb the impact of walking or even standing.

They cradle your arches (and with arches like I have is something my feet needs) all at the same time lets you move naturally with tons of support. I LOVE these shoes! They make my feet ecstatically happy! I can not think of not one change that I would make to these shoes. Not one bad thing I can think about about them except I need more because they are available in 13 great colors. Here are the other colors they offer:

  • Aqua
  • Bermuda Blue
  • Black
  • Cranberry
  • Forrest Green
  • Lilac
  • Mocha
  • Navy
  • Periwrinkle
  • Seafoam
They have a color for all your favorites. Or at least one to match every outfit in your closet! They also have other styles other then the style I chose.
  • OOahh Sport Slide Sandal
  • OOriginal Sport Sandal
  • OOcloog Clog
  • OOcloog Luxe Clog
  • OOlala Sandal
  • OOlala Slide Sandal
  • OOahh Slide Sandal
oofos project pink

They have a shoe to match anyone's style. They range from $44.95 to $59.95. Normally I would be way to cheap to spend this kind of money on one pair of shoes HOWEVER after putting them on my feet and wearing them around I WOULD pay this kind of money for OOFO's! I have NEVER worn a pair of shoes in all of my 42 years that is this comfortable for my flat arched feet! They are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned and probably will ever own! And just when you thought they were already a great company to buy from because they offer so many various styles and colors.

And it gets better! OOFO's offer a line of shoes called Project Pink. When you purchase from this line, $10 of every pair that you buy will be donated to breast cancer research. What a reason to go ahead and buy a few pairs!
  oofo project pink

They have this style in Fuchsia and Black (this one has a pink ribbon on it). So even if you are not the girly girl type and does not wear or like the color Pink you can still support Project Pink by purchasing the Black pair! The Project Pink line also has multiple styles to offer as well. They also come in several Men's Style's

mens original oofo

Husband also LOVES his OOFOS! He has the Men's Original OOFO's in Black.

This is what he says about his "I love these shoes. I have NEVER owned such a comfortable pair of shoes in my life!" I can not rave enough about OOFO's! I am in so in love with these shoes. I will never go back to any other flip flop aka in Hawaii slippah ever again. They have clouded their way into my heart. In fact I will be extremely sad when I go back to my culinary classes in January and have to wear regular shoes every day and it will only give me after school and weekends for my feet to enjoy my OOFO's.

OOFOS
 
WAIT...they have other styles like the clog that I might be able to wear..hmm..I guess I will be purchasing me another pair of OOFO's for school!! Until then I know my feet will be comfortable as walk over 10K steps daily around campus this semester. These shoes will make a GREAT Holiday Gift for any person on your list!

both oofo

BUT make sure when crossing those special people off your list buy purchasing them the best pair of shoes they will ever own, do not forget about your self because after all the OOfoam will keep your feet comfortable and happy when out doing the rest of your holiday shopping.

The Walking Dead Season 7, Ep 1.


Last night we saw the premier of season 7 of The Walking Dead and I have to say a big WELL DONE to everyone involved.

It has taken months for us to get to this point and we were all left in the dark trying to figure out who Negan's beloved Lucille claimed at the end of season 6 and I have to say they did not disappoint!

When the bat came down on the first person I did get quite emotional - I didn't want THAT person (of all people) to go and will miss them terribly. I wasn't as emotional on the SECOND guy, which is surprising for a long-time fan, but I honestly think it was their time to go.

These deaths are going to change the dynamics of the group forever and I think this is a great, natural progression for a show that really needed a fresh injection of "feels" after it started to get a little stale (for me) the last season.

Absolutely grossed out by the episode, sick to my stomach over who left, but honestly happy as a kid in a candy store that they went there, made me feel something for the show again, and actually sit here looking forward to the rest of season 7!

Revenge will be far away, but so super-satisfying in the end, but I have a feeling we have a LONG road to travel before we get there.

R.I.P little loves!

Roll on next week!

Nutrisystem, end of week 15 #NSNation

Disclaimer: I was provided with Nutrisystem products to review in exchange for my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Thank you.


It is the end of week 15 and I am feeling so much more confident in myself these days that I even venture out in a DRESS! I never wear dresses and so it felt a bit weird, but I got this dress for free a couple of weeks back at an event and figured I'd try it on. It fit like a glove so I went with it and my husband thought I looked great and I felt pretty good about myself. 

I didn't think I'd actually leave the house in it, but I did and I didn't want to take it off!

Anyone who is bigger will know the struggle of having thick thighs and I was dubious about that, but with the weight I have lost so far, my legs seem to have made out pretty well and I no longer have issues when I walk without tights, etc, which means I can now wear a dress out in a minute and not have to worry at all. I haven't been able to do that in years. 


I got my new shipment of food this week and I am excited to try out the omelet and the bagels, there are several foods I haven't tried and I am excited for that. 

The weight has started to shift again this week, just like I thought that it would and I am now down to an even 266lbs, which makes it an even 32lbs down!

I am so glad I took up with Nutrisystem and will always be so grateful for the opportunity they have given me to try this out and see if it works for me, because I have just felt so much better since the weight started to drop off. 

I am looking forward to this month with Nutrisystem and happy to see the numbers going in the right direction. Now I just have to decide if I want to join a gym, too...





Dark Chocolate Chunk Chewy Granola Bars, from Sunbelt Bakery - Plus Coupon!

Disclaimer: I was provided with a sample to give my honest opinion, your views may differ to mine, thank you! 


These are Dark Chocolate Chunk chewy granola bard from Sunbelt Bakery and they are oh so good.

I'm not a huge fan of anything chocolate, but when I pick some up I usually go for anything dark so these were something that took my interest and they didn't let me down. 



I shared them out with the rest of the family, who described them as chewy, sweet, delicious and everyone wanted more of a snack that everyone actually agreed on. 


I'd put these in school lunches, take them on the go, or have handy to snack at home - whatever takes your fancy. You can give them a try, too when you pick some up with this 50 Cents off coupon here (for the first 500 people). 


You can check out Sunbelt Bakery's other goodies by following them on Twitter @sunbeltbakery and at their website, too.

I'd love to know what you think of them.

Enjoy!
