The Cobbler Out on May 12,2015

Coming to DvD and Blu-Ray on May 12,2015 from Image Entertainment is The Cobbler directed by Tom McCarthy and stars Adam Sandler (Happy Gilmore), Steve Buscemi (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire), Cliff “Method Man” Smith (The Sitter) and Ellen Barkin (Ocean’s Thirteen).

The Cobbler is about Max Simkin who has enough work in his little New York shoe repair shop where he quietly envies people with more interesting lives. So when he discovers an old family heirloom with the magical ability to change his appearance and transform into any of his customers, the temptation is too good to pass up. However, his newfound ability to become someone else proves to be as troublesome as it is fun; when a ruthless real estate developer tries to take over his neighborhood. Max uses his gift to become the hero he always hoped he could be.


My Opinion: I really enjoyed this movie as it shows how nice it is to be someone else as your life can get boring at times but also do nice things for other people. Nice touching and a heartwarming story. I am a big Adam Sandler fan so this is a new side to his acting abilities.

Fresh Tips

Oral hygiene is important as you want to make a good impression for a day at work, a job interview or just plan oral health. I recently got to review fresh tips which are a disposable toothbrush to use on the go make with Xylitol. They come in Peppermint and Bubblegum what are great about them is the are sugar free, they clean the tongue and gums, no water needed you use as a lollipop, they are discreet, simple yet effective. Then fight plague, cavities, freshens breath and whitens teeth.


My Opinion: I really enjoy these as I leave for work very early in the morning so I do not always brush my teeth before I go as I want to enjoy my coffee without the toothpaste taste. I found when I took one of these with me and through in my purse and used before I started work I had fresher breath until after lunch when I used again. Definitely very effective and the taste of these were pleasant so even your kids will like them. I thought using these without water would be weird but not at all as I can also use these of traveling, camping and more. These remind me of the lollipops you get at a hospital to moisten the mouth.

Fresh Tips is privately owned brand started by dental professionals. The goal is to promote fresh breath and oral health worldwide. Dr. Deborah Luis is the founder and comes from a family of dental professionals. She is a dentist and a mom passionate about oral health.

HABA Baby Doll Fritzi

Have you seen the dolls Haba has for ages 1-5 well I got to review one of these cute dolls and it was Fritzi who is part of Lilli and Friends. Fritzi love to be cuddled and carried around everywhere you go. He has on a yellow jumper outfit with a picture of a mouse on it that is removable, with additional outfits sold separately.

Kleenex Expressions has a new line of tissues out inspired by fashion designer Betsey Johnson. If you are aware of Betsey Johnson her style of clothing and accessories are bold and bright with interesting patterns but also feminine. I got a variety of products from Kleenex from the Collection which included hand towels, facial tissues and travel packages of tissues. The design on the boxes is I heart Betsey which as a heart made of pink roses and a yellow or blue background, Kiss Me which has lips in pink on a black and white striped background on one side and a yellow background with pink roses and the last style is Zip it with black and white zippers on one side and pink and black leopard pattern on the other side.

You could use these for any occasion and the hand towels can be used for a color pop in the bathroom, when guests are over taken on a camping trip, add to your car for the summer as a back up to wipe hands on so many uses.
What pattern do you like?

Healthy Delights

I am always looking for new ways to take a vitamin as I know in my diet I do not get enough of the right foods and my body seems to be craving it but I do not like pills that are huge and termed as a “horse pill” as they can get caught in the throat and make you gag and puke at least that what happens to me. I am so glad to have found Healthy Delights which make a variety of soft chews and I was sent some to review.

I got Multi-Vitamin Chews flavor Strawberry Watermelon that has 16 essential vitamins and minerals, essential nutrients like Vitamin A, C, D and E, Biotin, Vitamin B12 and Zinc. These are Gluten-Free, No artificial Colors, flavors or preservatives. They also contain 100% daily value or more of the leading gummy multivitamin. They all only have 25 calories per chew as well.

B-12 Energy Chews in the flavor Strawberry Burst which is bursting with brain power and helps to promote energy production and a healthy nervous system keeping your mind and body strong and active. These have 2,500 mcg of B-12  per chew.


Hair, Skin & Nails Chews in the flavor Wild Berry which provides support and nourishment for lustrous hair, glowing skin and strong nails. Each soft chew delivers 5,000 mcg of Biotin which they call the beauty vitamin.

My Opinion: I love the flavors and texture as they taste like candy and not a vitamin so that is a plus for me and the fact I can just take one in purse or bag when I go to work so that is portable for me if you have a hard time with pills like me you will like these and you will be doing your body some good.

Aqua Ball your kids will love this water!


I recently got to review AquaBall and was sent Berry Frost which has Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Sven from Disney’s Frozen; Fruit Punch which has Disney Princesses Ariel, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Belle; Grape which features Marvel Avengers Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Avengers Assemble which are all naturally flavored.
AquaBall was designed to be a water-based drink for kids that supply a good source of Vitamins B3, B5, B6, B12 and C. We knew that kids need a drink that is sugar-free, does not contain High Fructose Corn Syrup and is not filled with artificial colors or flavors. AquaBall became that drink, created with the sole purpose of empowering moms! We believe that moms will always make the best nutritional decisions for their children, and AquaBall is a healthy and nutritious way for your children to hydrate and have fun!


My Opinion:  I really was surprised to see Stevia used as a sweetener in these but I gave them to my nieces and nephews and they really enjoyed the taste and the design of the bottles. I like that they are better for kids and not a ton of sugar inside.

12 Inch Wok from Ozeri



I am trying to eat healthier with more fruits and veggies so I recently got an Ozeri Wok which is 12 inches and earth friendly. It is also non-stick performance through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a synthetic substance that has waxy properties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which are documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional cookware incorporating PTFE is often manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment'. With the Green Earth Wok's ecozeri technology, even under high temperatures, such harmful toxic fumes are never released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Wok by Ozeri utilizes a 100% ceramic coating inspired by nature. 

The Green Earth Wok's ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA. In addition to being eco-friendly and ultra-safe, the Green Earth Wok's ceramic coating is far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Wok by Ozeri allows you to sauté, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and it makes cleaning a breeze. The Green Earth Wok by Ozeri is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without the risk of hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant Bakelight handle.

My Opinion: I really like this pan and it holds so much which is perfect for a large family making stir-fry’s, sautéing veggies, cooking meat or tofu which ever protein you like. I love the fact it is eco-friendly and will not cause me to get sick or kill any pets as the coating of the pan is safe.

Castello Cheese



I recently got to review Castello which makes a variety of cheeses since 1893 with natural ingredients and paying a great attention to detail. I was sent Harvarti Caraway which is a creamy, mild, semi firm cheese with a buttery, aromatic and caraway flavor; Caraway is a blend of Anise and fennel.
Harvati Dill which is a creamy, mild and semi-firm cheese; with mild dill and a buttery flavor which is slightly tangy and aromatic cheese taste you can see the dill through the cheese distributed evenly.
Harvarti Creamy which is creamy, mild and semi-firm. The taste is pure, mild and acidulous, and it appears rind less; white to yellowish. The cheese has a soft and creamy consistency that is also easy to slice. As it matures, the taste develops more character. 

My Opinion: I like them all the flavors but I love the Harvarti Creamy the best as it is milder and makes a nice grilled cheese sandwich and tops crackers nicely.
We pride ourselves on the continuous passion for discovery and cheese making heritage shown by Rasmus Tholstrup and all our other master cheese-makers to this day. We’ve never been content to just make the standard cheeses, but instead have tried to be creative by using ingredients and techniques from all over the world, giving each cheese a unique flavor and texture.

Swim Spray

SwimSpray is used to remove the chlorine smell from your body and hair for anyone ages 6 months and older. Swim Spray is an all natural made with water and many forms of Vitamin C. How it works is after you are done swimming you spray about 20-30 sprays on your skin then you get in the shower to rid yourself of the chlorine smell. I know in the colder months you do go swimming indoors at a pool unless you live in the warmer climate I remember all to well the smell of chlorine lingering on my skin and hair after swimming I was so glad to hear about a product to remove the smell for those who do not like it.


My Opinion: I found when I used this product before my shower it worked well to remove the scent of chlorine and I have no reaction to it either which is awesome.
To learn more visit http://www.swimspray.com
As lifelong swimmers and students of the sport, we endeavored to find a solution to one of the longest-standing problems associated with swimming - chlorine odor and irritation - and to provide that solution to the swimming community. Our product and solution to that problem, Swim Spray, was invented by swimmers for swimmers, and our company is 100% owned and operated by swimmers.
