The bra*Zing Review & Giveaway

Do you have a tank top or a thin strapped shirt that when you wear a bra with it you just do not like the look and may look awful? I recently found a company called The bra-Zing which makes decorative bra strap covers in lengths 14”, 16” and 20”. The bonding agent used does not damage fabric when removed and the same used in maxi pads. I got the Red Organza Rosettes which is perfect for the holiday season and has red organza flowers and is set against a red backing.
My Opinion: It is very feminine and beautiful I found it worked well covering my bra strap in a dress I really loved for the holiday but has spaghetti straps I usually wear a bra that is strapless and fits snug so having this is so much more enjoyable and I can breathe with it on.

Besides what I got they have Black Organza with Pink Glitter Flowers, Green and White Polka Dots, Go Camo! And so much more visit

Festivus Blend From Booskerdoo

I was recently given the opportunity to review Booskerdoo 2013 Festivus Blend whole beans in a glass jar this coffee is made with delicious blend of Mexico Fair Trade Organic (light roasted) and Bali Blue Moon Organic (medium roasted). My husband is the coffee expert in my family so he was able to try this and I love the smell of coffee but prefer the girly drinks such as Lattes and Frappuccino’s. Festivus is on December 23, 2013 and was started as a parody in Seinfeld Dan O’Keefe scriptwriter and which serves as an alternative to participating in commercialism associated with Christmas Originally a family tradition. Who could forget Seinfield; so gather around the aluminum pole and enjoy this blend of coffee. To learn more visit . Booskerdoo has a variety of coffees including Bottle Rocket, Dancing Goat Espresso Blend, After Dark and so much more.
My Opinion: This is a great coffee that is just the right amount of caffeine to get me going.

One Log Fire Review and Giveaway

I was recently given the opportunity to review One Log Fire and I have to say it sounds like a way to burn a fire and to my surprise when I got it in the mail it was interesting as you have a piece of wood with the center hollowed out and filled without toxic fumes for the fire starter and it also had a rope handle for carrying. This log is very light to carry and is an alternative to campfires. You peel off the label which has a hole beneath to fan the fire and a wick to light and the flame come up the hole and gives the campfire effect. You could use this for beach nights, part of a survival kit, camping and so much more. Visit to learn more.

My Opinion: This is amazing and easy to light, I have an impending winter storm warning if I lose electricity and power I plan to light this to keep warm. I love the idea, size and look.

Soda Stream Source

I know you may have seen Soda Stream on TV or in stores but have you tried it yet? Well, This is the second one I have tried the Soda Stream Source is different from the  Fountain Jet one as you just click in the container and it is shaped oval compared to the other one.  The reason Soda Stream is such a good deal is you are not throwing away plastic bottles or cans each time you drink it and you can make it at home quickly and as sweet as you want with the syrup that you buy. The Soda Stream Source is a beautiful design; Simplicity and Convenience. Powered by a reusable CO2 canister, the refined mechanics of the all-new Soda Stream Source make the entire top surface responsive to touch to quickly transform water into soda. An LED display indicates three levels of fizziness for precise carbonation with every use, while a new snap-lock bottle mechanism makes the Source even easier to use. To learn more visit
My Opinion: I really like that it is easy to use by anyone and works well and quickly. Very eco-friendly and the design along with the display LED is a great feature. My Family loves this and all the different sodas to make.
Where to Buy? Target, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Bed, bath and Beyond and so many more places.

Where to return my CO2 Canister?  At any place that sells the CO2 go here to find one near you

Why We Celebrate Christmas?

In December, many Christians celebrate a holiday called Christmas.1What is Christmas? During this season, there is particular emphasis on an event that occurred around 2,000 years ago in the town of Bethlehem in Judea (today called Israel).
Christmas commemorates the birth of a baby—an event recorded in the Bible in such New Testament passages as Luke 2:1–20 and prophesied about in Old Testament passages such as Isaiah 7:14. The name given to this baby was Jesus.
During Christmas time, many churches display nativity scenes. These exhibits show the newborn Jesus in a stable surrounded by various animals, shepherds, and Mary and Joseph. Such nativity scenes traditionally have also been displayed in public places (shopping centers, public schools, parks, etc.) in much of our Western world.
Also at Christmas, people sing special songs known as “carols.” The words of many of these carols outline the events surrounding the birth of Jesus.
Because of the influence of Christianity and the birth of baby Jesus, history is divided into two basic divisions—AD (Anno Domini, Latin for “in the year of the Lord,” Jesus) and BC (“before Christ”). As evidenced by the fact that Western calendars and historians count the number of years from this time, this was a very significant event even apart from religious aspects.

Merry Christmas

Today is Christmas and i wanted to wish all my friends a Very Merry Christmas and i hope you have a wonderful day filled with fun and memories with your family. Have a blessed day and remember Christmas is about the lord not just gifts and give of yourself to someone.

Last Love

Being released on December 31, 2013 from Image Entertainment and RLJ Entertainment on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital download is Last Love. This movie star Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Rises), Clemence Poesy (Harry Potter the Deathly Hallows 1&2, Justin Kirk (Goats), Gillian Anderson (The X Files) and Jane Alexander (Dream House) and  based on the novel La Douceur Assassine by Francoise Dorner and directed by Sandra Nettelbeck who also wrote the script.
Michael Caine stars with Clemence Posey in this richly nuanced, emotionally- charged story of lost souls, new-found hope and a Last love. Matthew Morgan is a widowed, world-weary professor living alone in Paris. The cynical Matthew sees no future with any meaning for himself until he meets Pauline, A free spirited young dance instructor. From their first meeting by chance each instinctively provides what the other so desperately needs; someone to call family. They are both struggling to heal wounds of the past including Matthew’s attempted to reconnect with his estranged children- the unlikely bond they form ultimately leads them to rediscover the joy that only family and true friendship can offer.
My Opinion: I really enjoyed this movie but it is a little slow to get in to. It is nice to have a dear friendship like Matthew and Pauline and a friend to share everything with. Very heart warming.

I have recently given the opportunity to review great arts and craft kit from Sentosphere which was stared in France by Véronique Debroise in 1989. The concept of the company is to use all 5 senses, tickling the artistic awareness of people of all ages. I got the Aquarellum Horses which with a few drops of paint you can create a masterpiece and is based on a masking technique
on vellum paper, allowing the paint to adhere only to selected areas. The design is gradually revealed with every brush stroke and may be painted
over repeatedly to obtain a perfect picture. This activity is ideal to initiate children in the art of painting, understanding the mixing of colours and stimulating their imagination and concentration.
 I also got Sandimage Dolphins and Fish you just remove the protective layer from the adhesive board and one by one apply the colored sands from the 15 supplied. A fun and artistic activity aimed at developing manual skills and the sense of color. Besides what I got they have Scented Games, Creative Fun, Jewellery Kits, Beautycare sets and so much more. I have never heard of this company until when I recently searched the web or seen them in the stores where I live they have been in the USA since 1995 to learn more visit  . Go to to see the nearest location near you I have two in my state which is great as now I know where to buy my nieces and nephews Christmas and Birthday gifts.

My Opinion: I really like these as they are easy to do and great learning and creative tool for kids and adults alike.

Diamonius Jennifer Engagement Ring

I was recently given the opportunity to review Diamonius which offers a variety of rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and more at a fraction of the cos. You may wonder why and it is because they are replicas with high quality, cut and clarity. I got the Jennifer Engagement ring which is clear, clarity is equivalent to the best IF (inclusion free) diamonds, Flawless under 10X magnification. Dispersion is 0.066 - More sparkle than real diamonds, Base Metal is .925 Sterling Silver, Plating is Rhodium, Stone is Man-made Diamonius gemstone grade diamond simulant. Stabalizer enhanced, coated & high-polish and Hardness is 8.5 on Mohs scale. Will cut glass.
My Opinion: When I first took this out I noticed how shiny it was and look very nice on my finger and real. Great if you want to get married and have limited amount of money to spend as it looks like a diamond but at a better price. If you lose this ring you won’t worry as much as it was inexpensive. I Love it a lot and better for the environment as well.

Scialle Scarf Giveaway Sponsored By Real Reviews By Savvy K

Scialle Luxury Scarf is a Gorgeous Holiday Gift PLUS Giveaway!

Disclaimer: I received a product in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and may differ from yours.
Scarves to me are the ideal accessory. Forget necklaces, bracelets and earrrings - give me a beautiful, colorful scarf and I am set with my outfit! While I do I have a wide variety of scarves, I have never owned one quite as elegant and sophisticated as the wonderful scarf I got from Scialle Luxury Fine Scarves.
AP 30884-26946-101 scrunch-500x500
The scarf I received for review was the Evans Medallion Camel and Orange Scarf ($285). This luxury scarf is very earthy and has a gorgeous neutral color pallet. As described on the website..

The first thing I noticed when opening the box was how wonderful this scarf was packaged. Not only is the scarf itself gorgeous, but it comes packaged wonderfully in tissue paper and an opaque, shimmery gift bag which makes it perfect for gifting!
photo 1 (26)
As soon as I opened the scarf out of the pretty gift bag I immediately fell in love with the softness of it! It is amazingly soft, made of 95% wool and 5% cashmere. When looking at, I thought it may be a bit scratchy but it definitely is not!
What I also loved about this scarf is how large it is. at 51" inches tall and long, this scarf is huge! However, since it is so light weight, you are able to double and triple it over to however you want to rock it with your outfit. Since it is so big, there are so many ways you can wear it as well! On the website, they even give you a few ideas on how to wear a square scarf, you can see them HERE!
photo 2 (28)
Even with this scarf being so big, there are so many great details to it. The gorgeous flowers with orange, red, and yellow are all outlined with this gorgeous taupe color. The background has these wonderful shades of blues and browns which really gives the scarf a nice balance and richness to it.
Overall, I think this scarf, and any of the other luxury scarves, would be an excellent gift for any girl or woman, even for the woman who has everything!
Want to win one for your very own? One lucky winner will win his or her choice of scarf from either the Fall/Winter line seen HERE OR the Spring/Summer line seen HERE.
