Danger Mouse is now on Netflix (giveaway ends 5/15/16)

 

Danger Mouse on Netflix

I am proud to be a Netflix brand ambassador. My family watches Netflix all the time. Not only do they have plenty of movies to choose from, they also has an abundance of original movies and series, created exclusively for Netflix.

Netflix’s newest series is an animated one that the whole family can enjoy – Danger Mouse.

The world’s greatest secret agent, Danger Mouse, returns in dashing, globe-spanning style with a new animated series that features all the classic characters, catchphrases and comedy that made it an 80’s cult favorite. With the world once more teetering on the edge of disaster, the small but heroic secret agent is back to thrill a whole new generation of fans as he attempts to overthrow a host of villainous rivals with the help of hapless hamster Penfold and a collection of state-of-the-art gadgetry and vehicles.

Danger Mouse is a British series that debuted in 1981. I remember it from my youth.

I liken Danger Mouse to a rodent version of James Bond.

Check out the trailer for the series.

 

I think this is going to be a big hit with both children and adults alike.

You can find not only all 24 episodes of Danger Mouse on Netflix, but also 11 episodes from 1992.

For more information, or to check out Danger Mouse for yourself, visit Netflix.com. You can also find Netflix on social media.

To celebrate Danger Mouse on Netflix I have a toy giveaway for a lucky reader. One reader will win both of these Danger Mouse play sets.

Nicholas Sparks, The Choice & 1-800-Flowers Giveaway (ends 5/14/16)

 

BD_skew.OCARD

Are you a fan of Nicholas Sparks books and films? I am. I have only ever read one book from start to finish, but I have seen every film. I even own every film made based on one of his books.

Even though I have seen most of his films numerous times each, I still ball my eyes out when I watch The Notebook and A Walk to Remember. I have also never seen a Nicholas Sparks film I didn’t like. I’ve enjoyed them all.

The latest film based upon one of his books, The Choice, is currently available on Digital Download. The film will be available on Blu-ray/DVD on May 3, 2016.

I didn’t see the film in the theater, so I am anxious to get a copy of it to watch.

Here is some additional information about the film in case you have not seen it yet.

From novelist Nicholas Sparks, the author of classic love stories The Notebook and Dear John, the year’s most moving romance, The Choice, will be available on Digital HD April 19 and on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on May 3 from Lionsgate. Based on Sparks’ best-selling novel, written for the screen by Bryan Sipe (Demolition), and directed by Ross Katz (Adult Beginners), The Choice stars Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Maggie Grace (Taken series), Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), Tom Welling (TV’s “Smallville”) and Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson (Best Actor, In the Bedroom, 2001), in a touching love story that will make viewers laugh, cry, and wonder how far they would go to keep the hope of love alive.

Travis is a fun-loving, smooth-talking bachelor who’s never considered a serious relationship—until he falls hard for his beautiful new neighbor, Gabby. But when fate threatens Travis and Gabby’s love, Travis must make a choice that will alter their lives forever in this unforgettably moving romance.

I can’t wait to see it.

Fun fact… I have an autographed copy of a Nicholas Sparks book (signed by Nicholas Sparks). That book is, coincidentally, The Choice.

Sweet treats from GoOrganic Candy (giveaway ends 5/9/16)

 

candy

I have a “sweet tooth.” Thankfully it’s not an every day thing, but there are times that I am totally craving something sweet. I think we all experience days like that.

I like to keep small candies (bit size and individually wrapped) on hand at all times. I keep most of them at home but I do have some stashed in my car just in case I am craving something when I am driving or at work.

I am always on the look out for a new favorite. I think I may have found that in a brand called GoOrganic Candy.

GoOrganic Candy, as you can probably guess, it 100% organic. In addition the candy is non-GMO, gluten-free, allergen-friendly* and kosher. The candy is also does not contain trans fats, preservatives, corn syrup, FD&C colors or hydrogenated oils.

The candy gets it’s sweetness from organic evaporated cane juice and organic brown rice syrup. The organic brown rice syrup they use in their candies is minimally processed and not highly refined like the sugars found in most candies.

I should also not that ALL GoOrganic hard candies are produced in a nut-free facility. GoOrganic chewy candies are manufactured, in a facility that handles nuts, but the product itself is nut-free. All products are soy-free, casein-free, nut-free, and vegan (except Honey & Honey Lemon).

The brand’s mission is to provide a healthier alternative to other premium candies.

GoOrganic Candy Collection

As a parent I have always been concerned about my children having too many sweets. They are great from time to time, but not all the time. As with anything else, it’s OK within moderation.

I enjoy hard and chewy candies, but most on the market have the same old flavors (cherry, grape, lemon…). What I like about GoOrganic hard and chewy candies is that they come in interesting and exciting flavors like Chocolate Ginger, Blood Orange, Apple and Ice Mint Mango. Needless to say, GoOrganic candy is not your average, ordinary candy.

GoOrganic sent me all of their varieites (chews and hard candies) to try out. I wasn’t sure which to try first. They all sounded so good.

I am a big fan of ginger. I like the spiciness to it.

Originally I bought hard ginger candies to keep on hand for when I travel (I get motion sickness). I found that they were so good that I ate them all the time (they were candy – not medication). Because of that I was really looking forward to the Chocolate Ginger and Ginger Xtreme.

Sadly, chocolate and ginger don’t pair together very well – in MY opinion. I wanted to like them, I truly did. But I didn’t like the flavor combination. That is not to say others won’t love it. My mom always said “one man’s meat is another man’s poison.”

Ginger Xtreme

The Ginger Xtreme is really good. If you like hot and spicy things, this is for you. They remind me of Fire Balls or Red Hot – but with a Ginger taste. The regular Ginger candy was my favorite out of all of them.

The Honey Lemon is also very good. It’s a nice combination between the two flavors. It’s not too lemony -not too much honey.

Normally I am not a fan of mango, but GoOrganics Ice Mint Mango is an interesting combination.

I LOVE the GoOrganic Fruit Chews. Each one is individually wrapped (as with all the GoOrgnaic candies). The fruit chews come in Strawberry, Lemon, Raspberry and Sour Apple flavors. YUMMY!!!

Apple

The only product that is not individually wrapped is the GoOrganic Fruit Snacks Fruit Medley. These are made with real fruit and provide you with 100% of Vitamin C per serving.

My only “complaint” (and I use that term loosely) is that you cannot re-seal the bag once you open it. That is fine for the hard candies and chews, but with the Fruit Snacks you want the bag to be able to close unless you plan on eating the whole bag (3 servings). Aside from that I have nothing but great thing to say about the candies I received to review.

If you would like to learn more about GoOrganic candies and where to purchase them, visit www.GoOrganicCandy.com.  At the top of their website where it says “Our Brands” you’ll find the page for the GoOrganic Candies.

You can also order them online on Amazon.com

You can also check out the brand on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

GoOrganic would love to give a lucky winner a large assortment of their candies, just like the ones I received. Thank you GoOrganic!

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end on May 9, 2016. The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via email and will need to reply within three days or a new winner will be chosen in their place.

New Twinkle Toes Lights Up New York & Sketchers Giveaway for mom and daughter (giveaway ends 4/30/16)

 

TWINKLE_TOES_DVDCover-Final

Available now on DVD is the animated film Twinkle Toes Lights Up New York. It was also recently shown in theaters across the country.

It’s the last day of school and 14 year-old Grace (aka “Twinkle Toes”) has been dreaming of the ultimate summer vacation with her best friends, Sporty Shorty and Jordan.  But when Twinkle Toes’ Dad gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to direct a Broadway musical, Twinkle Toes is swept from her small-pond suburban life and thrown in the hustle and bustle of New York City for the summer.  As Twinkle Toes learns the ins-and-outs of the Big Apple and Broadway, she impresses the show’s choreographer and is invited to be a part of the show’s cast alongside the teenage starlet, Olivia Conners.  But when Twinkle Toes gets a taste of the Broadway limelight, the chance for stardom overwhelms Twinkle Toes and the show is ruined!  To make things right, Twinkle Toes must use all her creativity, smarts, and dancing skills to help her new friends and save the show!

Check out the film’s trailer.

 

It looks cute. We also live outside of New York City and visit it often, so anything to do with the city is of interest to me and my family (although my kids are a bit older than the film’s target demographic).

Look for the Twinkle Toes Lights Up New York where ever movies are sold.

Did you know that the popular shoe brand, Sketchers, makes Twinkle Toes shoes as well. They really twinkle!

April is Car Care Month (giveaway ends 4/30/16)

 

putzen-reinigen

Did you know that April is Car Care Month? I just learned about this recently. I guess it makes sense. After a long winter, and for most of us, rock salt, sand and other debris can really do a number on your cars exterior. I know when the first sunny day occurs many people are seen in their driveways washing their cars or sitting in mile long lines at the car wash.

I have owned many cars over the years. I’m on my 7th car in 30 years. All of my cars, except one, was purchased used. Some cars I loved, others I truly disliked for numerous reasons.

My current car is a PT Cruiser. I forget what year it is  (2005 or 2006).

I love my car. I love everything about it.

Car

My car the day I bought it.

Having children the inside of my cars tend to get dirty and I used to find toys, food and whatnots all over my car. It was never clean. Now that my kid are teenagers and I don’t have to worry about the being so messy, I pride myself on keeping my car in tip top shape – both inside and out. If I see so much as a spec of dirt in my car I make sure to clean it up right away.

Living in a condo means that we don’t have a way to clean our cars in the parking lot. We have no access to a hose and I’m not about to trek a bucket of water up and down six flights of steps. In order to keep the outside of my car clean I need to take it to the car wash or one of those self-serve car washes.

I keep a supply of car care products in the trunk of my car for spot cleaning or for when I have some free time to clean inside my car.

Recently I was sent some car care products from 303 Automotive Appearance Line. I was sent to review the following products.

Protectant

303® Protectant offers superior protection of your vehicle’s interior and exterior surfaces against the harmful effects of UV rays. It brightens all vinyl, rubber and plastic to keep it looking new, longer. It also helps prevents fading and cracking, repels dust, lint and staining and dries with a non-greasy finish.

Wipes

303® Protectant Wipes offer a convenient and portable version of 303 Protectant. Each container includes 40 individual wipes perfect for quickly brightening up vinyl, rubber and plastic surfaces.

Speed Detailer

303® Speed Detailer instantly shines and protects clear coat, fiberglass, plastic, chrome and glass. It blocks the sun’s harmful rays, helps protect against fading and keeps your vehicle looking clean between washes.

Quick Wax

303® Quick Wax is ideal for getting a glossy showroom shine. It gently cleans and protects paint for a longer lasting shine and contains superior UV protection that lasts up to 30 days, helping to prevent color fading. It contains Carnauba wax and is 100% silicone free.

Leather

303® Leather is a 3-in-1 complete care solution- it cleans, conditions and protects. It is safe to use on all finished leather and vinyl and helps prevent fading and cracking, reduces dust, lint and staining and is a rinse free formula – just spray on, and wipe off.

Wiper Tablets

303® Instant Windshield Washer Tablets – Eco-friendly and super concentrated tablets deliver three times the cleaning power of regular windshield wiper fluid.  Simply drop a tablet into your cars reservoir and add a gallon of water. No disposal of plastic containers required and the powerful solution removes bugs, dirt and grime to make your windshield sparkle.

To be honest, I haven’t tried the 303® Leather or 303® Quick Wax (yet). My car does not have leather seats (nor does my husband’s car). I also haven’t tired the wax yet because I am waiting for a day that I can fully wash my car then wax it. I don’t want to wax a dirty car.

I have used the 303® Protectant on the interior of my car. My seats are vinyl. I worry about them getting sun damage, especially because I have a sunroof and the sun beams down on my car’s interior. I was concerned it might make the seats slippery after use, but that was not an issue at all. I think it actually made my seats look cleaner too.

Car Dashboard

Dashboard

I LOVE the 303® Protectant Wipes! I use one every few days on my car’s dashboard. My dashboard is a magnet for dust. I don’t know why. Now that I drive with my windows opened it seems like my dashboard is getting even more dusty. I keep the wipes inside my car (not in the trunk) so I can give my dashboard a quick once over at any time.

I’m sorry that the pictures didn’t turn out so good. It looks much nicer in person.

We’ve tried the 303® Speed Detailer on the chrome (I think it’s chrome) accents on my car. The door for my gas tank, the head of my gear shift and a few other areas of my car have a metal appearance to them. I have used this spray on those areas. It seems to clean them off and make them super shiny.

Handle

Shift

I put one of the 303® Instant Windshield Washer Tablets in my car’s wiper fluid, but I haven’t really had a need yet to use it. Thankfully no birds have left their mark on my windshield (yet). I also haven’t had any bug splattering on my windshield as of yet either. Once I do I’ll have to update this post with my thoughts on how well it worked. A bird did leave a mess on my passenger’s side window, but not on the windshield.

Now that the weather is warmer and there are no worries about rock salt and dirt from snow covered roads, it’s time to keep your car clean both inside and out.
