Tyler Perry’s Madea Gets Animated (giveaway ends 2/8/15)

 

MadeaToughLove_DVD_Ocard_3DSkew

It seems like writer/director/producer Tyler Perry is everywhere. He’s conquered both film and television. Now he’s venturing into a whole new genre – animation.

Tyler Perry’s first animated film, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Tough Love, will be available on DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand on January 20, 2015 from Lionsgate. You can also find the film on Digital HD a week earlier (January 13, 2015).

All of the favorite characters from the Madea films are in this animation including Madea (of course!), Uncle Joe and Aunt Bam.

In this film Madea gets herself into even more over the top and outrageous situations – all in the name of helping children save their youth center.

After a hilarious run-in with the law, Madea is sentenced to community service. Determined to do good for the ’hood, Madea enlists Aunt Bam and Uncle Joe to try and save the Moms Mabley Youth Center from being shut down. With her irresistible sass and wisdom, Madea rallies the local kids to make a stand—and proves that behind her tough exterior is a whole lot of love!

The film features the voice talents of Tyler Perry as “Madea” and “Uncle Joe” among others and Cassi Davis (TV’s “House Of Payne”) as “Aunt Bam” along with Rolonda Watts (TV’s “Curious George”), Avery Kidd Waddell (Road Trip), William “Bootsy” Collins (Night at the Museum) and Cree Summer (TV’s “WordGirl”).

This is a Dove Family approved film.

There are some bonus features including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film and a sketch-to-screen storyboard comparison that show Tyler in the recording studio voicing his characters.

Here is the trailer for your enjoyment.

 

It looks like a cute movie. And since it’s approved by the Dove Family you know that it’s truly a family friendly film.

I like that Madea is helping out children in this film. I think all of us could learn a lesson about helping out in our community.

Personalize your “stuff” with Label Land (giveaway ends 2/1/15)

 

Label Land products

As a mom I like to keep my home clean and organized. My teenagers don’t necessarily feel the same way.

I admit that my work desk is “organized chaos,” bu the rest of my home tends to be tidy and organized. I like things to have their own place in our home. If I find something out of place it actually bothers me – A LOT. If I see a DVD in our bookcase placed back the wrong way it actually causes me anxiety until I put it back the right way. :-)

I often joke with my husband that I need to label everything. That way I know my family knows where specific things go.

Take for example our bathroom closet. There is a bin of my stuff, my daughter’s stuff, first aid, and surplus stuff (to name a few). Sometimes my husband just tosses things into any old bin he sees in the closet, which totally messes up the order of things. I really want to label them so that everyone knows what goes where.

Labels are a great way to keep thing organized. They are also great at letting people know it’s your stuff.

If you have younger children or grandchildren in school you know how easy it is that their stuff gets taken by other students because they don’t know who it truly belongs to.

When our son was in Kindergarten I would get notes home from his teacher about how he had a hard time using scissors and how we needed to work with him on that skill at home. At home he cut  with scissors just fine. I had no idea what the teacher was talking about. It turns out she took all the student’s scissors (which we had to purchase as part of the student’s school supply list) and put them in a basket so they could all use them. Our son is left handed and we had to purchase him special scissors for left handed children. Because his scissors were mixed in with the rest of the classroom scissors he ended up with scissors for right handed people all the time. That is why he couldn’t cut well.

From that point on I made sure that ALL of his things were labeled (as well as our daughter’s stuff) and insisted that the teacher make sure he ALWAYS had HIS scissors at school.

Labels are a “must have” if you have children. They are great for labeling their school supplies so that there is never a question of who is the rightful owner of an item. It’s also a great way to identify your child’s stuff should they lose something. This would apply at summer camp too.

If you are looking for labels you should check out Label Land. Label Land is your one stop shop for all kinds of labels including waterproof labels, shoe labels, clothing labels and bag tags.

I checked out Label Land. I really like the assortment of available labels. I especially like their assortment packs where you get several different kinds of labels in one set.

Take for example the Label Land School/Camp pack. It comes with the following labels;

  • 100 Iron on labels (white label with black text) – A must have for backpacks, jackets, swim suits and gym clothes.
  • 30 Medium waterproof labels – Perfect for water bottles, toothbrushes and food containers (they are 100% waterproof and dishwasher safe).
  • 3 Bag Tags – Great for backpacks and luggage.
  • 14 Shoe labels – Ideal for all kinds of shoes.

I wish I had these labels years ago. There were a few times my kids lost their jackets and backpacks at school. A personalized label purchase is much cheaper than replacing a jacket or backpack.

Label Land lets consumers pick out the design they want for their labels – from cute graphics to plain, solid colors – the personalize them for each child. They have girl, boy and unisex designs as well as cute designs for little kids and solid colors an camouflage for older kids.

Labels

They even give you the option to see what your labels will look like (you just have to image your name/personalization on them).

Label Land even has labels for adults which would be wonderful for elderly people who live in nursing homes to help protect their stuff.

If you would like to check out Label Land for yourself visit Label-Land.com. You can also check out Label Land on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Links to their social media sites are found on the right side of their home page.

Label Land would like to give a lucky reader one of their school/camp sets ($42.99 value). Thank you Label Land.

Enter the Fiora Snack-Off Contest (giveaway ends 2/1/15)

 

Snacks

Snacks… who doesn’t love snacks. Sometimes we need snacks to make it through our day, otherwise we risk over eating at meal time.

This time of year (the start of a new year) many people are opting for healthier snack options, like fresh fruits and veggies. Normally I DO opt for those kinds of snacks (I love raw baby carrots). I also enjoy yogurt and nuts.

Every now and then we like to snack on more typical snack options like chips and dips and wings. In all fairness wings are chicken which is a protein so in a  way it’s not so bad for you. It’s better than snacking on cake, cookies and candy.

Any snack is OK within moderation. It’s OK to enjoy a couple of cookies from time to time (instead of veggies or a piece of fruit), just make sure you DO make healthier choices most of the time.

FIORA

Sometimes the snacks we choose snacks that might be a bit messy. If you’ve ever enjoyed wings I’m sure you know how messy they can be. Other times dips might make a bit of a mess too, like Queso dip or salsa.

When you are enjoying your favorite snacks be sure to keep plenty of paper towels on hand to wipe up messes and to keep your hands clean.

Speaking of messy snacks and paper towels, Fiora, the leading tissue and paper towel brand, has launched a Snack-off Contest. They are asking fans to submit their favorite snack recipes to go head-to-head with others for the title of Best Snack in America.

Fiora product line

 

There will be four winners chosen. Each will win a year’s supply of Fiora products. There will also be a special grand prize.

If you are interested in entering your favorite snack for a chance to win simply visit Fiora’s Facebook page for all the details as well as to submit your snack recipe in the contest. Hurry! The contest ends on January 28, 2015.

If you would like to learn more about the Fiora brand please visit their official website.

Fiora would like to send a lucky reader a special Fiora Snack Prize Package. Thank you Fiora!

Nicholas Sparks’ The Best of Me Giveaway (ends 2/1/15)

 

The Best of Me

Coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on February 3, 2015 is the most recent Nicholas Sparks film, The Best of Me. The Best of Me stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan.

Based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller from celebrated author Nicholas Sparks comes this tender, romantic drama about the timeless power of love. When former high school sweethearts Dawson and Amanda (James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan) meet at a loved one’s funeral 20 years after tragedy separated them, their love is reignited. As they recall and relive the past, they come to a deeper understanding about the choices they’ve made. Also starring Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato, and featuring beautiful scenery along with music by Lady Antebellum, The Best of Me is a powerfully romantic story of love, hope and second chances.

I didn’t see the film in theaters, but I am anxious to see it. I LOVE Nicolas Sparks! I have seen all of his films. In fact I own all of his films too. If you search for Nicholas Sparks on my site’s search bar you’ll find my reviews for all of his films too.

I love his films (and books) tug on your heartstrings. I STILL ball my eyes out whenever I watch A Walk to Remember (the first Nicholas Sparks film I ever saw).

I also really like James Marsden. :-)

Fox Home Entertainment is releasing a “Tears of Joy” Edition on Blu-ray and DVD. This edition will include an all new story line and an alternate ending.

Movie Giveaway: The Longest Week (ends 1/31/15)

 

thelongestweekbluray

Available on Blu-ray and DVD is the film The Longest Week. It stars Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman and Billy Crudup.

In this sexy and smart romantic comedy, Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde, and Billy Crudup find themselves entangled in an exhilarating love triangle. The longest week of Conrad Valmont’s (Bateman) aimless and affluent life starts when he’s suddenly cut off from his allowance following his wealthy parents’ messy divorce. Suddenly broke and evicted, Conrad is forced to move in with his friend Dylan (Crudup). But innocent flirtation leads to fateful infatuation, and Conrad soon finds himself trying to seduce Dylan’s gorgeous girlfriend Beatrice (Olivia Wilde). As the sparks fly, both men vie for her affection…but which one will win her heart?

Check out the film’s trailer.

 

It looks good. I also think it would make a fun movie to watch with your special someone on Valentine’s Day, in case you are planning on having a romantic dinner and a movie at home.

Olivia Wilde is such a beautiful woman.

I’ve been watching Jason Bateman sine he stared on Little House on the Prairie and Silver Spoons. Oh how time flies!

The film does have special features including the Theatrical Trailer and The Making of The Longest Week.

I have not seen the film yet but I’ll be receiving one to review. Look for my review in the next two weeks, give or take.
