C4 Belts Giveaway-US/CAN-Ends Sept. 10/15

My hubby is very pleased with the belts I received from
C4 Belts. He wanted a black belt and could never find one to fit him properly. With these belts, you can cut them to fit your size. I also received a red belt with a white buckle. You can mix and match your choice of color belt with different colored belts.



Mission of C4 Belts
C4's mission is to promote individuality through quality belts that gives back. C4 stands for Choose your Color, Choose your Cause. Not only do you Choose the Colors to best match your style, you also Choose one of four Charities to determine how we give back $1 for each belt you purchase. Choice is key; express your freedom.

Interchangable:
With more than 25 colors of the Classic style and 12 colors of the Skinny style, C4 Belts gives you over 600 color combinations to match every season, every outfit, and every mood...

Lifetime Guarantee:
Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) plastic is the same plastic that lines snowmobile tracks. In other words, C4 Belts are durable, designed for an active lifestyle, and made to withstand even the most extreme elements. Try snowboarding in that “stylish” cowhide leather belt. Try again.

Waterproof:
Forget discoloration and smells of mildew, C4 Belts are WATERPROOF. Perfect for fun in the sun (or rain, I suppose)--wakeboarders, snowboarders, divers can all count on C4 to come out dry.

Gives Back:
Every purchase of a C4 Belt gives customers a voice to help make a difference in the world. Each year, C4 identifies 4 charities to give back to. Simply scan the barcode included in the belt box or visit our website and Choose your Cause.
Boys & Girls Club of America, Captain Planet Foundation, Human Rights Campaign, Best Friends Animal Society.

Easy to Clean:
That white leather belt looks great against your double dark rinsed denim but the indigo dye that stays behind after wearing not so much. Not a problem with C4 Belts! Place your belt on the top rack of your dishwasher or in a cold water washing machine cycle and voila! Good as new...


Animal Friendly:
Unlike that cowhide leather belt you got as a present every Christmas, no animals are ever harmed in the making of C4 Belts. No skinning. No bleaching. No taunting animals for bad hide days. And definitely no chemicals, which makes our belts...

Earth Friendly:
TPE plastic’s low melting temperature and simplified injection molding technique lead to minimal energy use during production. And best of all, C4 Belts are 100% REC4CLABLE and can be processed like all your other recycled plastics. Not that you’ll ever need to...

The Perfect Fit:
C4 belts are for the masses. Men, women and even kids. One size fits most. Your customer cuts the end that has no holes to their size and puts the buckle back on. C4 Belts are interchangeable so buying additional belts and buckles means fewer accessories to clog the closet while maintaining maximum style.

There are so many colors to choose from along with classic or skinny belts. You can watch a short video of these belts here C4 Belts
One lucky person is going to win a belt/color of their choice and color of belt as well.
So get those entries in today and good luck everyone.

OnnoT-Shirts-2Winners-US/CAN-Aug. 28/15

This week I received two very nice t-shirts from Onno-t-shirts-Hemp-Clothing. One in blue and the other in red. I love them. The red one is 70% viscose from organic bamboo, 30% organic cotton. Great fit. Softer than your softest cotton shirt. I love the softness of it.
The blue is a hemp t-shirt and Hemp is technically superior to cotton: hemp fibers are more durable, provide better UV protection, wick moisture, and are anti-microbial (this can sometimes be useful).
A little info on the t-shirts material. Bamboo: The fastest growing plant on Earth. Produces more oxygen than trees. Grows in most climates. requires very little water to grow.

Hemp: Pretty much the same as Bamboo. Grows anywhere, fast, requires very little water, and leaves the topsoil in great shape. Naturally pest resistant. Organic Cotton: grown on fields that have been chemical free for at least three years. Regular cotton consumes 25% of the world's pesticides (that is two billion pounds.)

There are many different colors to choose from for these t-shirts and the sizes range from 2XS up to 2XL. Some sizes may be out of stock for some colors. I wear usually 2XL in my tops but found these were a bit tight on me. I like my clothing loose. So if you choose a size maybe go with one size larger just in case. Otherwise I know you are going to love the look and feel of these shirts.You can wear the t-shirt with a pair of jeans, with a skirt or even with shorts or dress pants. You decide where you want to wear your new t-shirt and how.

Onno t-shirts.com has graciously offered a free bamboo or hemp shirt to two winners in the US or Canada so get your entries in and good luck to everyone.
Many thanks to Onno t-shirts for sponsoring this giveaway.

Vibrational Earth Children Deck - Review

Vibrational Earth Children Deck - Review

This is a deck of cards from Debbie A. Anderson.

My mantra at the beginning, and this still holds today, is that there is a world of gifted and intuitive children out there who are reaching out to discover and find a safe and playful way to work with oracle cards. And just so you know, there are already some amazing decks emerging. Spirit wanted this deck to be created to help children embrace and overcome some of the day-to-day obstacles that sometimes appear before them in a positive and educational way. The positive affirmations at the end of each card are being cherished by the children and parents because they feel this is a direct connection that resonates with them personally.

The artist for this deck, Kim Dreyer. I knew the deck had to be all inclusive, as far as humanly possible, and non-denominational. Kim agreed and as the dialogue expanded, she felt it would be a wonderful idea to use the photographs of real children rather than spec images and I agreed with her. So as always I threw my thoughts up to the Universe asking that ultimate question, “how can you make that possible?”
Usually with me a night’s sleep brings forth answers, based on my requests or thoughts. Easy spirit responded, reach out to your retailers and on social media - get parents, grandparents to submit photos of their children. Initially, like any new concept, I got a bit of resistance with people’s valid concerns about protecting the children, a trepidation which I myself resonated with personally. But after reassurance of protecting the child’s safety and keeping everything private, in rolled hundreds of photos of children with pure excitement and trust seeing that this project was already creating interest from around the world.

Nothing great happens overnight. There is a process and lots of people who take part in it. One of the most important elements is the “pulling it all together” person. And that for me, was the blessings of working with Heather Brewster, who created the box, back of the card image and got everything print ready.

These cards come in a lovely box and also an 80 page guide book to help parents with tasks for the children aged 8 years and up. You can use the cards as an educational tool an adult & child can work together in an understanding way by shuffling the cards and drawing one card at random. Older children will enjoy working with a straightforward three card layout giving them a sense of purpose in reaching their own conclusions.

The colour chosen for the card reverse side and box was purple. This was based on a message I got from spirit, explaining that in light format, purple had the shortest wave yet the highest vibrational frequency because it inspires & motivates the soul into spiritual engagement in a balancing and transformative way.

What has been transpiring since November 2014, is that adults who have worked with the deck alongside their children, have now been motivated to using for themselves to speak to their own inner child.

News – Vibrational Earth Children oracle deck will be available as a mobile app! http://www.vibrational-energy.com/vibrational-energy-oracle-mobile-app.html

The Seventh Dwarf Giveaway-US/CAN-Ends Aug. 4/15



With an exceptional voice cast of Peyton List (Disney Channel series BUNK’D, Jessie, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Norm Macdonald (The Middle, Saturday Night Live), internationally renowned singer and actress Nina Hagen and Joshua Graham, this new CG-animated motion picture is a hilarious mash-up of the best classic fairytales, packed with beloved storybook characters, non-stop laughs and toe-tapping songs! Directed by Harald Siepermann (Tarzan, Enchanted) and Boris Aljinovic, THE SEVENTH DWARF is a magical movie adventure for the whole family.


Join all seven dwarfs for an adventure as big as they are small! It’s the eve of Princess Rose’s 18th birthday. Everyone in the kingdom has come to Fantabularasa Castle to celebrate including Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella and Red Riding Hood. But just before the stroke of midnight Bobo, the youngest dwarf, accidentally pricks the finger of Princess Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) with a cursed needle and sends the kingdom into a century-long slumber! To find Rose’s true love Jack to save her with a kiss, Bobo and the other six dwarfs must go on a treacherous journey, face a fiery dragon and outwit the jealous, scheming and evil witch, Dellamorta!
This hilarious mash-up of the best classic fairy tales for young and old alike, features a winged dragon, a brave little dwarf, non-stop laughs and toe-tapping songs!

Watch the trailer for THE SEVENTH DWARF

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o93kvRxc6Y

Meet the Dwarfs:
Cooky (Voiced by Joe Marth) Responsible for feeding all of the dwarves, Cooky is one fantastic cook. His responsibilities don't end in the kitchen, however Cooky upholds all the rules and makes sure the other dwarves follow them as well.

Cloudy (Voiced by Al Parrish) A grumpy dwarf, Cloudy's raison d'etre is to find the hair in the soup and to see the glass as always being half empty. Joie de vivre is really not this dwarf's thing-making him the exact opposite of his brother Sunny.

Sunny(Voiced by Geoff May) The opposite of his brother Cloudy, Sunny is a happy-go-lucky kind of dwarf. He is an incurable optimist, for whom the glass is always half full. It is in Sunny's nature always to seek out a silver lining no matter how big the disaster. Even when he should really know better, he believes that everyone is nice and is entirely unsuspicious of other people's motives.

Tschakko(Voiced by Matt Gilbert) Always ready for action, Tschakko is the sporty member of the group. He always gives the impression that he knows how its done, even when he doesn't have the foggiest notion,(which is often the case.) His motto is "Movement is Good!" Because as long as you are moving, then you are going the right way! Right?

Speedy(Voiced by Cameron Elvin) Always ready to look at things with a new perspective, Speedy is a real philosopher. Though it can be a rare occasion, when Speedy gets an idea, it can bring him to question every little thing that all the other dwarves simply take for granted. His decelerated state of being allows him to see things from an unusual point of view, helping the dwarves in all sorts of situations.

Ralphy
(Voiced by Peter Karwowski)What Ralphy lacks in intellect, he strongly makes up for with compassion and generosity. While his stature alone makes him a verritable pillar of strength, Ralphy is always in a good mood and eager to help. He is perhaps the best friend anyone could ever imagine.

You’ve already met six of the dwarfs… now get ready to meet Dellamorta, the evil witch, and Burner, the fire-breathing dragon from Shout! Factory’s upcoming animated film, THE SEVENTH DWARF! With some help from her reluctant sidekick, Burner, Dellamorta dedicates all her time to sabotaging the beautiful Princess Rose and her fairytale friends. Will Princess Rose and the entire kingdom be saved from Dellamorta’s villainous schemes before it’s too late? You’ll have to wait until JULY 31ST to find out!

Burner(Voiced by Norm MacDonald) A fierce dragon who needs a friend, Burny doesn't enjoy being Dellamorta's underling very much. He's been teased in the past about his secret passion- tap-dancing; will he be able to trust others and make friends?

Dellamorta(Voiced by Nina Hagen) An evil ice queen with her sights set on freezing the kingdom of Fantabularasa. Dellamorta is jealous, greedy and obsessed with power. She is so terrifying that even the elements cower before her. Dellamorta wasn't always so nasty, however; she became the spiteful person she is today after being spurned by her one true love. Perhaps if she had been spared disappointment back then, she would not be quite so evil today.

One lucky person will win a copy of this DVD. Get your entries in and good luck to everyone.




Raincoast Books Review...

Recently I received two books to do a review on. I really like these books.

Land Shark: The only thing Bobby wants for his birthday is a pet shark. So you can imagine his disappointment when his parents get him… a puppy. Everyone knows shark
lovers can never become dog lovers. Or can they? Full of humor and heart, this book
explores the idea that sometimes, getting exactly what you don't want turns out to be
exactly what you need.



Adventures in Smelly Places: Keep little hands busy on long journeys with these bumper books of stickers that mix amazing facts about some of the world's smelly places with great photos and illustrations, plus a small dose of humour. Each book also includes a collectible fold-out surprise, an extra gift to make and proudly display.

Poohy! Come and explore some of the smelliest places in the world!

Explore the stinky stench of a bat cave in America,
the eye-watering aroma of a smokehouse in Scotland, and the heady perfume of a rose oil factory in Turkey! Decorate real-life locations, like smelly Seal Island in South Africa, the acrid vanilla plantation in Costa Rica-and more smelly places-with over 250 reusable stickers.


Enjoy hours of fun games and puzzles. Plus, each book in the series has its very own push-out surprise to make and collect.

These are two great books that any child will enjoy.Raincoast has a wonderful selection of kids/teens books for you to check out. Take a look here http://www.raincoast.com/features/kids-teen/

This is a review only but be on the look-out for more Raincoast books giveaways coming soon. Thank you to Raincoast Books.

Hulk Costume-Review-NEW COSTUMES


Recently I received the package that my grandson has been waiting for. This year for Halloween he wants to dress as The Hulk. So his wish is my command so to speak. I sent for the costume and when it arrived I had my grandson come over to try it on. It just fits him and maybe I should have ordered a larger size but too late now. He put it on and was so excited. He looks pretty good except for my floor which is in the process of being replaced. But the costume looked good and he is happy. He looks to be pretty well fit doesn't he? Look at those abs. lol The ensemble comes with a green and gray jumpsuit with a muscle chest so that your son can show off all of the strength of this superhero. Also included are shoe covers and a ferocious green mask so that your child will really transform into this beast from head to toe.


I remember watching The Hulk when Bill Bixby played him on television and loved that show. Its nice to see that an 8 year old is taking interest in this now too. The Hulk is like a super hero to him and other little boys too I presume. Its so nice that today we can buy costumes for our kids that they will enjoy wearing at Halloween. For my grandson, he gets to celebrate Halloween twice. First out at his nanny's trailer where all the campers get a gathering to hand out treats to the kids. Then on October 31st, the kids get to celebrate again. They sure do fill up on the goodies at these two holiday.

Take a look at some of the costumes they offer for girls, men and plus size:

If you are looking for a costume for your child this year, there are so many to choose from. They have boys costumes Historic/Patriotic, TV & Movie, Cartoon Characters, Pirate and Fairy Tale. For girls they have Historic/Patriotic, Disney, Tween, TV & Movie, Cartoon Characters, Pirate and Fairy Tale.
They have women, men, toddlers, infants, Teen, sexy and Plus size costumes so there is one for every person's preference.

So I know this is still only July but blink your eyes and it will be the end of October and for those who celebrate Halloween, you can get a head start right now by checking out this site and choosing your costume for this year. I know you will love the choices you have there. Have fun!
Thanks to the sponsor for my costume. My grandson is over the moon.

You can check all of them here http://www.costumesupercentre.ca/new+arrivals.html

If you would be so kind https://www.facebook.com/costumesupercenter, and "like" the page. Thanks
