Valentine Book of Love-US/CAN-ends Feb. 20/16

So we had one of these giveaways at Christmas and I really enjoyed the book I gave to my son and his wife. They enjoyed it very much as well, so when I was asked if I would like to do another one, I said yes because I have 3 sons so this book for Valentine's day will go to my oldest son and his girlfriend.

These books are from

The book I ordered is set in Tahiti, and it is called "Island of Love". Its a paperback book and has 191 pages.
It is a personalized novel, a tale of exotic romance and spine-tingling adventure set in Tahiti and the South Seas. Black pearls, black-sand beaches and the black hearts of villains intent on pillaging paradise all play a role.
From a luxury cruise ship, the starring couple embark on the vacation of a lifetime where swimming with dolphins on Moorea, showering under a waterfall near Papeete, and snorkeling along a secluded beach in Huahine are moments to savor. During the journey, they find their destiny rests in myth as deep as the blue Polynesian waters. Tahiti, the Island of Love, is the perfect setting for a love story where the action is of volcanic proportion. These books are personalized romance novels (you star in the books with your Hunny) are one-of-a-kind gifts that offer a distinct option that is much different from traditional gifts like roses (which wilt and die), chocolates (which contributes to weight gain), lingerie (which looks great once but gets tossed aside) or jewelry (which can cost more than a normal budget allows). In short they are fun, campy, sexy and romantic, and offer a unique experience: reading about yourself doing some pretty wild and crazy things in exotic settings.

These books are in 50-plus settings (with the newest release set in New York City). The books, which come as paperback, hardbacks, and ebooks, and the fun part - each one has a "wild" or "mild" version so you can choose how "spicy" you want the romantic interludes. I ordered the "mild" version for my one son and again for my oldest son. Seeing I read these books first, I didn't want to pry into their bedroom so to speak. lol

They created the genre of personalized novels in 1992, and Valentine's has been their busiest season of the year. They have been called "Computerized Cupids," and the books tagged the "Ultimate Vanity Valentine." They think both are appropriate. I have to agree.

You can choose from any of these Valentine books: I know you will find one here that you are going to love. So enter for your chance to win and decide who you want to give this book to. Maybe your significant other, a son and his wife, a daughter and her husband, you make the choice. The winner will get an email from the sponsor with a instructions for ordering your book along with the $50 Gift Card code.
Now I am going to go back and finish reading this book so I can mail it off to my son. He knows there is a surprise coming but has no clue what it is.

So enter today and good luck to everyone. I know you will love your book.

Ice Chips-US/CAN-Ends Feb. 3/16

Here we go finally with the first giveaway of the new year. Again, I am sorry it has taken so long for this but it takes longer for things to come here in Canada. With that being said, lets get on with it.

Many of you will remember in my gift guide, we had Ice Chips Candy that we gave away. Well I have been sent another package and these are much different from the last ones. This time we have Coffee Cream, Margarita, Pina Colada, Strawberry Daiquiri, Cherry and Sour Apple. How is that for a mixture of flavors?

I have tried the Cherry, and Pina Colada and they are very good. Hubby tried the Coffee Cream and the others that I tried and he likes them all as well. Take a look.

Now looking at the cans themselves in the top photo, this is what color the Ice Chips are Coffee Cream is a brownish color, Margarita below is white, then in the center Pina Colada and its white, below that is Strawberry Daiquiri and they are a pinkish color. Then we have Cherry and they are red and lastly Sour Cream which are white. They got a bit mixed up when I took the second picture but you get the idea.
These are perfectly safe for anyone who is diabetic as my husband is. He is type 1 and takes 5 needles a day and he loves these. They do not affect his sugar level at all.
This will tell you Why Ice Chips:

If you have problems reading it this is what it says
**Tastes Amazing
**No aftertaste
**Beneficial to teeth
**Recommended for Diabetics
**Reduces new tooth decay
**Reduces cavity causing bacteria
**Inhibits growth of dental plaque
**Stimulates saliva flow
**Does not impact insulin levels
**Contains ZERO net effective carbs

How is our Xylitol different?
Our Xylitol is processed from Birchwood, right here in the USA. NOT made with GMO corn from outside the country.
What is Xylitol?
Xylitol is a natural occurring sweetener found in the fibers of may fruits and vegetables. It is even found in small amounts in the human body. One teaspoon of Xylitol contains 40% less calories than sugar and is not utilized via the same insulin pathways as sugar. Because of the slow absorption rate, the metabolic capacity is never exceeded when Xylitol is administered by mouth.
When to use Ice Chips Xylitol Candy:
Sucking on Ice Chips xylitol candy, 3-5 times per day is recommended for maximum benefit. Ideally, use immediately after a meal or snack. Expectant mothers may use Ice Chips. Recent studies have found a link between consuming Xylitol during pregnancy and stronger teeth in infants.
The sponsor has kindly offered to give 2 winners a package of 6 tins of Ice Chip Candy. So get the entries in and you could be one of the lucky winners. Good luck everyone.

Christmas Elf Costume- Review

Recently I received an elf costume for our grandaughter. Tonight she came over to try it on and take it home. She loves it.This company has all types of costumes, not only for Halloween but for other holidays as well. Ava wanted an elf costume so she could wear it at Christmas. She picked out her own costume. Elf Costume

The shoes come up to a point with a little bell on the toe and the hat has little bells around it to as well as the little capelet around her neck. She was quite happy.

This company has all of the following:
**Adult Costumes
**Kids Costumes
**Accessories & Makeup
**Props & Decorations
**Pets & Mascots

They have plus size costumes, baby and toddler costumes, pretty well anything you are looking for. Last time I received a costume my grandson wanted to be the Hulk. So you can get Disney costumes as well as movie star and superheroes, animal costumes and anything else that suits your fancy. They even have adult Santa suits. Check the site out and see for yourself. Facebook.
One word of advice though, if you decide to order a costume for anyone, go one size bigger than what they normally wear as I find they are a bit on the smaller size. The Hulk costume was a little tight for Aiden and the pants for the elf costume is a bit tight but everything else fits for now anyhow. I don't think it will fit Ava by Halloween though.

Some other costumes they have

So get ahead of the game and pick out your child's costume or one for yourself for this coming year. They are very quick at sending them out so you will have it in time for whatever occasion you need it for.

(HGG)GreenPan Milan 3D 12-Inch/30cm fry Pan-Canada Only-Dec. 24/15

Sorry everyone, this is for Canada only.

Well here is a giveaway I am sure many of you have been waiting for so here we go.
GreenPan Milan 3D I Love Meat and Poultry 12-Inch/30cm Dishwasher Safe Aluminum Open Fry Pan Coated with Grey Thermolon
The Milan 3D collection has a lot to offer. Not only does it offer an evenly distributing lightweight aluminum body,they are also coated which makes them easy to clean and dishwasher safe. The stainless steel handle allow the pans to go into the oven as well!!
Greenpan thinks that cookware should match the food being cooked, so they developed different surfaces for different food categories. All Milan 3D products are divided into three different surface categories: flat, dotted and ribbed patterns.

Today we have the ribbed surface pan. Normally when a piece of steak or chicken is in a normal frypan, the oil or butter is being pushed sideways, which results in less than crispy frying. With the I Love Meat and Poultry collection, the raised ribbed surface guarantees the oil remains beneath the food, resulting in perfect searing and browning.

Did you know? Thermolon is an excellent heat conductor. This results in superb searing and crispy frying. The perfect heat distribution allows even cooking, which makes the food brown beautifully. It allows you to mostly cook on low to medium temperatures which is great for lowering your energy bill.

Thermolon Ceramic Non-Stick
Thermolon is the patented ceramic non-stick coating that GreenPan uses on its non-stick products. It has excellent thermal conductivity which allows perfect frying results with lower heat settings than traditional non-stick coatings. The coating is also highly scratch resistant, very hard and very resilient to thermal shocks.
*Thermolon is a ceramic non-stick coating
*Manufactured with out PFOA, it contains no lead or Cadmium
*No toxic fumes will be released, even when overheating. This means that GreenPan™ has an extra safety feature; if you overheat your pan, even up to 450/850oF, no toxic fumes will be released and the coating will not blister or peel.
*The thermolon coating is healthy, safe and does not contain any toxic chemicals or persistant pollutants

GreenPan is a Belgian company that designs and manufactures innovative healthy cookware. During the first release of GreenPan products for sale on the US TV channel HSN,100,000 sets were sold in only one hour. Suggested Retail: $89.99
Go here to check out all the other products they carry. You will be surprised.
The unit is available at Home Outfitters and Amazon if you are looking to build out your set.

One lucky person in CANADA will win one of these pans like I received. I know the winner is going to absolutely love it.
Get your entries in today and good luck to you all.
