Weirder than Marshmallows review and giveaway!

       Weirder than Marshmallows was a great, funny, quick read. It is basically a collection of short essays about every day experiences with people. "Ignorance, lack of common sense, and downright inhuman stupidity run rampant in this country and around the world. I watch people, and I hear stories, and they beg, beg, beg to be mocked and ridiculed." is my favorite quote in the book. 
    It only took me about an hour to read, which is perfect for my busy schedule! Unfortunately, the author has since passed away so this will be the only book by him. That is sad because he is/was such a witty person! It is a great quick read.

Roots only Review!!

    I was recently offered the chance to review the Roots Only! product.
If you are someone who colors your hair at home, you know how difficult it is to just do the roots and not the rest of the head. You mix the hair color into the bottle and then just squirt on your roots. It takes only 5 minutes to apply and can be used on any type of hair. The best part is that you don't have to section your hair, the comb does it for you! This will save you so much money over going to the salon! I loved the results and so will you!

Slice Safety Cutter Review

   I was recently given the Slice Safety Cutter to review. It is meant to cut coupons and other items simpler with more safety. One key thing I liked it that it has a hole on it for you to put on your keychain, so you can cut coupons at the grocery store or on the go!

   It is also magnetic, so you can put it on your fridge so it is easy to find. I loved how easy it was to cut out coupons or really anything with it!

Kroger's new Private Selection Line of Frozen Foods.

  I was provided three different products to try through BzzAgent, the chocolate lava cakes, vanilla cream puffs, and the BBQ Chicken Pizza.

    Their pizza lines are flat bread pizza in an oblong shape. The crust was perfect. Loved it. The BBQ chicken was just ok. The chicken flavoring seemed a little weird and the sauce was too much. However, I would buy it again. I also bought the pepperoni and roasted garlic, but I haven't tried it yet. 

   My favorite item was the vanilla cream puffs. Ohmigoodness, these were yummy. I could have almost eaten the whole box myself. I served them for Thanksgiving and they went pretty quickly. They were super creamy and tasted amazing. I have no criticisms for these. 

  The chocolate lava cakes were good. I didn't think they were very lava-like, more like chocolate cake with some fudge in it. It did satisfy my chocolate craving. I would buy them again. 

The Truly Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookie!

        I was recently given the chance through BzzAgent to try out Kroger's new The Truly Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookie. These cookies were so yummy! *I received the product for free but all opinions are 100% mine*
        My daughter really enjoyed being able to eat these. She would even point to them to inform me she wanted another one! I loved them with milk. But they were also great to eat plain!
        These were just as good if not better than the brand name cookies, but for a much better price. There was a perfect amount of chocolate chips in each cookie. I would have preferred for them to be softer, but that is just my preference. I am usually not a fan of store bought cookies, but I would totally buy these again.
        The packaging was good, but I prefer the brand name packaging. This packaging will let the cookies go stale quicker. But that isn't a problem for families that will eat the cookies up quickly.
        Overall, super super yummy!

Stupidity of Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Don't get me wrong, I love black friday. I love the excitement of shopping in the middle of the night. But people are stupid.

Who pepper sprays other shoppers for an XBOX? Really? How much does that say about what your priorities in life are? Who runs over a child for shopping deals?

Also, the sales were not that good this year. There were some good deals, but actually we saw much better sales the week before thanksgiving!

Here in America, we really need a reality check sometimes!

Natural Selection Book Review & Giveaway

Natural Selection ~ Forces of Nature ~ Book One

What do you do when you find out your family isn't your family, death is knocking at your door, and that guy you can't stop thinking about knows more about who you are than you do? Amelia Hoffman was just a normal 15 year old until she found out the truth. Now ancient myths, supernatural beings, and murder have changed everything. Tests and school dances are no longer the biggest worry in her life-- she has to figure out how to save everyone she loves and accept the future in front of her before its too late.
This is such a great book! I loved reading it. The book is designed for young adults, but it was good even for adults!
