Dana Fragrances - Black Lace and Love's 5 Piece Set - Review and Giveaway - US Only Ends August 14, 2012

Dana Classics Fragrances have been around for as long as I can remember.  Some of my very first perfumes were from Dana Fragrances; Love's Baby Soft, Navy, and Chantilly, just to name a few.

I was in middle school when my mom bought me Love's Baby Soft perfume. Oh how excited was I to be able to finally have my very own perfume. I have to admit that my mom did a fabulous job of picking it out for me.  She knew it would be the perfect soft and delicate scent for her budding daughter and right she was. After middle school, I stopped wearing cologne and didn't really start wearing it again until about 5 years, or so, ago. When I was sent Love's assorted 5 piece mixed set, I had a flood of memories and emotions, come rushing back!  I don't know about you but, I miss the days when I was much, MUCH younger. Those days where everything was so much easier yet, I was so ready to grow up and become an adult. Oh how I miss those days; thanks to Love's Baby Soft, I was able to take myself back to those carefree days! I really do miss the 90's!

This set includes the original Love's Baby Soft .69 fl. oz. cologne mist, Love's Lemon Fresh .69 fl. oz. cologne mist, Love's Soft Jasmine .69 fl. oz. cologne mist, 2 oz. of Love's Baby Soft and Love's Rainforest lotions.  I wasn't too fond of Love's Lemon Fresh; it smelled too much like Pine Sol.  My daughter, on the other hand, loved the scent.  Love's Soft Jasmine smells just like you'd think Jasmine perfume would smell - love it1  I, too, am so in love with Love's Rainforest Lotion!  It's a powerful, yet gentle scent; perfect for your young daughter and also perfect for mommy!

Now that I've taken a walk down memory lane, I want to tell you a little bit about another Dana Fragrance called Black Lace.  This Eau de Toilette Spray screams my name all day long; this fragrance is light, airy and has a gentle, yet sexy, floral smell.  I think I'm safe to say that this a naughty fragrance that dances with your senses.  I sprayed some on my neck and when I walked into our bedroom, my husband immediately took notice and said "hey babe, what's that smell; come here and let me smell you!"  He loved it and it's not often I can get him to notice, let alone, compliment on my fragrance of choice.  This was a huge hit for me AND for my husband!  The only complaint that I have is that it just doesn't last long on me.  I'd say it lasted about 1 1/2 hours tops.  I'm used to wearing perfume that lasts all day and all night long.  Other than that, this is the perfect, sensual scent that any woman (and her partner) would enjoy.

WHERE TO BUY:  You can purchase on their website HERE or to find a store near you, click HERE.

HOW TO CONNECT:  You can connect with Love's Baby Soft on Facebook or Twitter.

Are you ready for a giveaway?  Thanks to the wonderful people at Dana Frangrances, one lucky US reader is going to win BOTH the Love's 5 piece assorted set and the Black Lace perfume.  Giveaway ends August 14, 2012.  Good luck to all!

Zipz Shoes - The Interchangeable Shoes - Review and Giveaway US only ends August 10, 2012

ZIPZ 101

From their website

What makes Zipz Shoes™ different than any other shoes available in the marketplace today?

Zipz Shoes™ is the world’s first and only fully interchangeable shoe system. This allows consumers the ability to change the “cover”, or top of the shoe, with the “soul”, or bottom of the shoe. There are numerous different collections, styles, patterns, and colors to choose from allowing the consumer to make a personal fashion statement every day of the week. Whether its fashion, function, or fun Zipz shoes have you covered.

One word comes to mind when I think of Zipz Shoes - GENIUS.  When I came across Zipz Shoes, I just had to find out what they were all about.  It all started, with Jerry Stefani and his family,  6 years ago, at a BBQ/family reunion.  Kids were running around, playing and getting their shoes al dirty (those of us with kids have been there, done that) that they were changing them out several times a day.  Jerry took notice and thought perhaps an interchangeable shoe would solve the problem....and that's how Zipz Shoes was born.


I was sent a pair of Youth Lo-Tops in Ruby Heartz for my review.  My 11 year old is always complaining of how everyone, at school, has the same shoes and how she wished she had a pair that nobody else had.  I knew Zipz Shoes would be the perfect solution to that so when I had her pick out a pair, she was more than thrilled, especially after I explained to her how they were different from other shoes she had ever worn; her eyes just lit up!  The thought of having different style choices was something that excited her more than her upcoming birthday party!

Let's talk a little bit about what makes Zipz Shoes unique.  The shoe has a component that you can interchange.  What you do is unzip the shoe, the zipper goes all the way around, and then you change it out.  All you have to do is buy the Zipz Shoes covers and however you're feeling that day, you can match your shoes to match your mood; how fun and creative is that!  You are not limited to the styles and designs.  In the mood for high tops?  All you have to do is change out the shoe component and instantly you have high tops!  I have to admit, that is pretty awesome.

Here's a question you might ask...are they comfortable?  My daughter is so picky when it comes to shoes.  Even if she loves the design and style of the shoe, if it's not comfortable she will not wear them.  As soon as she put on the Zipz Shoes, first thing she said was how comfortable and soft they were.  Since they are made out of a customized, extra cushioned insole, they work in conjunction with their specially designed arch support system to give you the most comfortable and healthy fit available.

The only complaint my daughter had was that they were a little hard to get on.  It could simply be that she has wider feet, or maybe the fact that they are new and once they are "broken" in, they'll be much easier to put on...time will tell.  Other than that, she loves them!

For me, I found the zipper a little hard to unzip, at first.  After a couple of times, it was so much easier so I guess it just needed to "warm" up.

Zipz Shoes comes in a variety of styles and designs for men, women, youth, and even toddlers.

Ready to think outside the shoe box?

WHERE TO BUY:  Are you ready to pick up a pair for yourself, or your child?  Visit their website HERE to purchase a pair.

HOW TO CONNECT:  You can connect with Zipz Shoes on Facebook and Twitter.

Are you ready for a giveaway?  The generous people over at Zipz Shoes would love to give you the chance to win a pair and try them out for yourself!  Winner will get their choice of any shoe.  Giveaway is open to the US only and will end on August 10, 2012.  Good luck to all!

Crock-Pot - The Original Slow Cooker - Review

Crock-Pot® The Original Slow Cooker

About the Crock-Pot® Brand

It all started in August of 1970 with a simple bean-cooker: a glazed brown crock liner, white steel housing and aluminum lid. What the Crock-Pot® brand did first was expand the cookbook to offer a real practical variety of dishes for the bean-cooker. The brand then redesigned the product’s outer wrapper and added handles and a glass lid. By associating the crockery liner with its pot-like shape, out came the name Crock-Pot® slow cooker. This slow electric stoneware cooker introduced a new category of appliances to the trade in January 1971 and revolutionized the way Americans cooked for their families.

A Crock-Pot® slow cooker combines old time principles to produce exceptional flavor, nutrition and economy cooking. Success breeds imitators, and Crock-Pot® slow cookers are no exception. You’ll see the word ‘crockpot’ and may presume it’s the original brand of slow cooker. But if it’s spelled ‘crockpot’ without a hyphen and ® then it’s not a Crock-Pot® slow cooker.


I have owned a couple of slow cookers throughout my adult life.  A smaller one and a larger one.  It's one of those appliances that I can't and won't live without.  When you are a busy mom, whether you work outside of the home or you work in the home, your days can be hectic.  After a long day of working, the last thing I want to do is think about cooking supper.  The husband is hungry, the kids are hungry, and so am I but, there are more times, than not, that I have been turning to packaged meals, which means the lack of good old fashioned home cooked taste.  That's where I pull out my ever so trust worthy slow cooker.

I have had my slow cooker for many years and it was on it's last leg so it was time for a new one.  The wonderful people over at Crock-Pot so graciously sent me the Crock-Pot Smart Pot Slow Cooker to test out and review.  Crock-Pot is a well known, trusted brand for top of the line slow cookers.  My previous slow cookers had your basic low and high settings.  I wanted something different so  I decided to go with a programmable slow cooker. 

What I really like most about the programmable slow cooker, versus the other, is that you have different settings besides low and high.  You have your 4hr, 6hr, 8hr, and 10 hr settings.  Depending on what you're cooking that day, just set it to the desired cooking time and off you go.  Once the time has elapsed, the slow cooker automatically jumps to the warm setting to keep your food nice and warm until you are ready to eat.  I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have lost track of the time and either the food overcooked or was slightly undercooked.  

I decided to fix one of my families favorite recipes.  The recipes says to cook on low for 8 hours.  Can you guess just how easy it was to cook this meal and go?! I set the time to 8hrs, didn't think twice about it and by the time we were ready to eat, it was already on the warm setting and just waiting for us to chow down! 

**As with most slow cookers, please be careful when handling as the unit gets pretty darn hot.

Jarden Consumer Solutions’ Crock-Pot® brand offers a full-line of slow cookers, accessories and replacement parts.

WHERE TO BUY:  You can purchase your own Crock-Pot slow cooker directly from their website HERE or you can find a retailer near you by clicking HERE.

YumEarth Organic Lollipops Review


Let me start off with some serious honesty.  As you may have read in previous reviews, I'm not a fan of organic, healthy, or anything that doesn't contain lots of sugars or fat. I know, that's horrible but, every time I try out organic or healthy products, it just turns out horrible tasting and I end up wasting my money. I realize that my kids just don't need that junk so I do wish to find a product that is both organic and tastes good.

YumEarth Organics offers organic candies that are both healthy and delicious!  I received a package of Organic Lollipops and just like most kids, my kids couldn't wait to tear open the package.  My 14 year old took one look at the word organic and quickly turned up her nose and walked away.  Hey, I can't blame her; it's my own fault.  My 11 year old and 2 year could have cared less and immediately grabbed one, opened it up and stuck it in their mouths; I, too, grabbed one since, of course, I'm reviewing the product. The package was very easy to open and is resealable, which I liked very much.

The ONLY complaint I have about YumEarth Organic Lollipops is that they are too small! The taste of these lollipops are out of this world.  They are made with real fruit extracts and boy you can most definitely tell the difference between these and regular lollipops that contain all the stuff that isn't good for you.  I was shocked, literally shocked at how much delicious flavor was bursting from this candy.  I would have never thought that a product that is gluten free, certified organic, no artificial dyes, no corn or corn syrup, casein free could be so darn good; nothing but 100% natural flavors.

YumEarth Organics offers a variety of candies such as gummy bears, sour worms, and sour jelly beans.  I love, love, love gummy bears and can't wait until they are available at my local Target.  YumEarth is currently available at over 300 Target stores across the country.

WHERE TO BUY:  If your local Target doesn't carry YumEarth, you can purchase directly from their website HERE.

HOW TO CONNECT:  You can connect with YumEarth on Facebook and Twitter.

Lovable Labels - Don't Lose It, Label It! - Review and Giveaway Open to the US/CAN Ends August 8, 2012

About Lovable Labels 

Lovable Labels launched in 2003 by a mom that found herself in the middle of a problem. Her son's daycare asked that all of his belonging be labeled.  She then recognized that there was a need in the market for personalized labels that were touch, durable and could stand the test of time!

Personalized durable labels and tags are Lovable Labels specialty. From multipurpose sticker labels to shoe labels and clothing labels, Lovable Labels makes sure to have you covered!

Children are going to lose stuff, so Lovable Labels solves that problem!

The school year is fast approaching (sheesh, already??) and if your anything like me, labeling school supplies is a must!  I did it the old fashioned way and took a fine tipped marker and proceeded to write my daughter's name on every supply and every item!

So, when I was approached by Lovable Labels to review their Back to School Pack, I had no problem saying yes! When they arrived, my 11 year old daughter was so excited to see her very own, personalized, pack of Lovable Labels.  She was so thrilled with the idea of getting to label her items with super cute stickers instead of the boring old marker that would end up smearing.

The Back to School Pack retails for $44.95 and includes the following: 
  • 15 Regular Labels
  • 80 Slimline Labels
  • 48 Press n' Stick Clothing Dots (3 sizes)
  • 12 Shoe Labels
  • 2 Mini-Metal tags
  • 12 Square Labels
Lovable Labels has got you covered with just about every possible label you could have for your kids back to school items. 


Regular Label used on Notebook

Slimline Labels used on pencil

Press n' Stick Clothing Dots
Shoe Labels

Mini Metal Tag used on pencil case

Almondina Biscuits - Delicious Cookies Without The Guilt! - Review and Giveaway US Only and ends on August 12, 2012!

The Almondina Story 
(from their website)

Profile Picture
Almondina® is the inspiring success story of a man whose great loves include both music and wonderful food. For generations his family loved his grandmother Dina’s most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau Sec. Yuval Zaliouk, an internationally known symphony conductor and gourmet chef, always had a special place in his heart (and stomach) for this exquisite, crispy wafer with the delicate flavor of roasted almonds and the natural sweetness of plump raisins.

Long after his grandmother’s death, Zaliouk became aware that the remarkable characteristics of this addictively delicious but extremely nutritious cookie fell squarely in line with the growing demands of health-conscious buyers at the end of the century. Within seven years having started baking in his kitchen, the cookies, renamed Almondina® for his grandmother, were available in all fifty states, sought after in seven foreign countries, and had brought him recognition as Entrepreneur of the Year.

This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives. It is wonderfully crunchy and does not have to be dipped. It is a delightful accompaniment for coffee, tea, soft cheeses and fine light wines. The rush to eliminate fat from gourmet foods too often has also eliminated most of the flavor, a fact which is in sharp contrast to this enticingly delicious cookie.

Since the introduction of the classic Original flavor, eight more distinctive variations have been introduced, all of which continue to be packed with roasted almonds. A recent innovation, Chocolate Cherry, combines the almonds with dark chocolate and plump cherries.

The Almondina Company sent me their Assorted 8-Cookie Gift Box which is a perfect way to get to try several different flavors.  The flavors I received included: 2 Original, Choconut, Sesame, Gingerspice, Cinnaroma,  and Chocolate Cherry.  *See below for a description of the flavors. 

I've always been aware of healthy cookies but never gave it a second thought since I'm not a huge fan of healthy eating.  When I agreed to try the Almondina assortment, I really wasn't too thrilled but my curiosity overrode any negative thoughts; plus, I never back down from trying something new! I mean, how bad could they possibly be?  At first glance, the cookies appeared rather stale and slightly unappetizing.  You know that saying, "don't judge a book by it's cover"?  Well, that couldn't be more true in this instance.

Holy taste buds, these cookies are delicious; the texture is very crispy, not stale tasting at all, and full of delicious flavor!  My girls weren't too fond of them but me and my hubby sure were; we gobbled them up lightening fast!  I have never tasted anything quite like this, from the texture to the actual taste.  I love almonds but am not too fond of raisins.  Surprisingly, the raisins offer a faint sweetness that didn't upset my taste buds!


We hear about this, ALL THE TIME but, when I think of healthy food, the words tasteless, and boring come to mind;  I'm sorry, that's just the way I feel.  I have no desire to eat foods that have no taste.  Almondina has pleasantly surprised me in that they offer such delicious cookies that have ZERO fat and salt; they are also free of cholesterol, coloring, preservatives, non dairy AND are super low in calories.  Normally, those words would have turned me away quick had I come across these in the store.  There are some things that I review that I'm SO glad I was given the chance to, otherwise I would be seriously missing out; this is most definitely one of those times!  I was sent a couple of coupons, along with the assortment, and have already used them up!

  • Original - America's all natural favorite with almonds and raisins
