Sinbad Sweets Review and Giveaway

Around the holiday season it's very hard to not indulge in fantastic holiday treats. There's the cakes, cookies, pies, candies, etc. It's hard not to resist!

Sinbad Sweets has you covered this year for all of your candy needs in a unique way. They are the country's leading specialty baker of the Mediterranean delicacy baklava and many other sinfully delicious desserts. Our baklava varieties, nut tarts, macaroons and turtle shells are hand-crafted by our team of highly skilled artisan bakers. Our unique combination of old-world recipes and proprietary innovations allow us to keep our assortments of sweets consistently delicious and authentic.

Instead of giving a regular box of chocolates to a friend or co-worker as a Christmas gift this year, why not do it up in style with a box of Sinbad Sweets? This company offers delicious treats that have bold personality.

I was sent a 24 piece box of Sinbad Sweets to review.


These candies are AMAZING. I'm serious, these are unlike any candy I've ever eaten. They are so pretty and I love the perfectly drizzled white or milk chocolate on the outside. These are two bite candies that have an addictive nutty, flaky crunch in each bite. You can truly taste the flakiness and the nutty taste. It's out of this world. I was craving that crunch long after I finished the candy. The chocolate is not overly sweet, but sweet enough to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours. I like that these candies come in white and milk chocolate, because it's perfect for someone who wants milk, and someone who wants white. These would be perfect on your coffee table as a sweet treat for your guests on Christmas!

Baskin Robbins Review

I've always loved Baskin Robbins. Their ice cream is always delicious and fresh and you can't forget to add the hot fudge on top! There's so many flavors to choose from, and they are constantly changing too. It's fun to see what great flavor they will come out with next.

Baskin Robbins has fabulous ice cream cakes, sundaes, milk shakes and more. There's something for everyone.

I reviewed one of the holiday pies, and it was delicious! I chose the Pralines and Cream Caramel pie. I chose to have an adorable ice cream turkey put on the pie too for decoration. The pie had pralines and cream ice cream, and also had delicious, sweet caramel on top of the ice cream. It was finished off with a fudgy border. Simply amazing!



I served this pie with my Thanksgiving dinner. It was a hit among everyone. The only thing I wish is that it had a graham cracker crust. I loved the cute turkey on the pie too. It was made out of chocolate ice cream and the back of the turkey was made out of a cookie! It was extremely creative. The pralines and cream ice cream was sweet and creamy. It was certainly very delicious. The pie had a border of fudge around it and that was my favorite part. I love chocolate and I loved the cold creaminess of the fudge. It was a nice touch because the rest of the pie didn't have any chocolate in it. The caramel in the pie was very sweet too and paired well with the ice cream and fudge.

I certainly would buy a Baskin Robbins cake again for any of my future party or entertaining needs. Their cakes are extremely fresh and utterly delicious. Thanks Baskin Robbins!

Masterbuilt ButterBall Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer Review and Giveaway

Fried foods are a treat for me. I rarely eat them, but when I do I loooooove it. With the holidays coming up, what better time to have a nice deep-fried turkey?

Masterbuilt has produced yet another great product for its consumers. This company makes wonderful smokers, fryers, and other outdoor products. We all know Butterball for their delicious turkeys. Why not combine the two brands for a great product?

The Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer is great for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Can't you just imagine a delicious, fried turkey on your table? Picture it now, your guests will just be drooling while they anxiously watch you carve the turkey and await their piece!



Adjustable thermostat temperature control

Stainless steel construction

Porcelain-coated inner pot

Digital timer

Folding lid with window and filter

Cooking basket with drain clip
Drain Valve for easy cleaning
Saves on oil - uses 1/3 less than conventional turkey fryers
Can feed up to 8 people, frying a 14lb. Turkey

I received an indoor electric turkey fryer, a $15 Butterball turkey coupon, and a cookbook written by John McLemore, who is the CEO of Masterbuilt.

I love the way this fryer looks. Stainless steel is so attractive and I love the modern look of it. It fits nicely on my countertop. It's not too heavy for a fryer that can hold a 14 lb turkey, it only weighs 24 lbs. I like that the fryer has a window so you can watch the frying process if you wish.

I plan on using this fryer to fry my Turkey for Thanksgiving, but obviously I couldn't wait to use it, so I decided to fry a Snicker's bar! I rolled my Snickers bar in the batter and dropped it in. I could hardly wait for the bar to fry so I could have a delicious bite. I took a bite once it was done and it was pure bliss! I loved the combination of the fried Snickers with the amazing melted chocolate. Sooooo good! You can use this fryer for much more than turkey. You could probably fry any meat possible, candy, cookies, etc. Be creative!

I like that the fryer has a digital timer on it so I will know exactly when my food is done frying. If you do plan on frying a turkey, a 10 lb turkey fries in about 40 min. This fryer also steams too. I will definitely use this to steam veggies, shrimp, chicken, etc. I love that this machine is so versatile. It makes my life easy! It's very easy to use, just follow the directions and you should be good to go.

The cookbook that my fryer came with is helpful and has some great looking recipes that I would love to try in the future. The $15 Butterball gift coupon was great because I was able to purchase my turkey with it, and I only had to pay $1 out of pocket!!

This fryer is a great conversation starter and I know you will have fun making some holiday meals with it. It would be great to use with your family and create some great family memories and traditions with!

GIVEAWAY RULES:
I will be picking ONE (1) winner who will win a Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer+John McLemore's Cookbook+$15 Butterball gift coupon.

LaRo Clips Review

I am no stranger to a little bit of bling in my wardrobe. I love big rhinestone rings, or a glitter design or pattern on my shirt too. I think it's important to incorporate a bit of style and personality into your everyday outfits.

LaRo Clips, is a company which makes beautiful clips that attach to various size pearls and beads without fear of damage or harm. The clips are made with only the finest Swarovski crystals.

You can enhance scarves, handbags and clothing without ever having to pierce the fabric.

Accessorize your home with our clips for easy and fabulous decor.

Whether you like a dragonfly, a flower, or even a bow LaRo has you covered in a beautiful way.

I love these clips and they are so gorgeous and fun!

I was sent the Pearl & Swarovski Crystal with Black Enamel Clip. Here's a picture of what it looks like on a pearl necklace.


I attached this clip to my jacket. My coat is black and the combination of the black outline of the flower paired with the rhinestone petals and huge pearl center look so pretty and elegant together. The clip is easy to open and attach and stays securely on. I really love this clip, it jazzes up my jacket and looks great. The clip would be a perfect Christmas or birthday present for someone. It would be great for attaching to a necklace, purse, belt, sweater, etc. You can virtually apply it anywhere and it would look great. I love that there are many different kinds of LaRo clips so you can personalize them to the person's taste. I feel that women of any age would really love this clip. I see only good things for the future of LaRo!

Paula Deen Review

I'm a big fan of Paula Deen. I love to watch her crazy cooking that involves 140 sticks of butter and 75 cups of sugar. She's so entertaining to watch and her food always looks so delicious!

Paula Deen is a cook on the Food Network, along with owning a restaurant in Savannah Georgia. She has a line of bakeware and cookware and kitchen appliances, and also is an author of many cookbooks.


I was sent a set of 4 red Paula Deen branded mixing bowls. Here's a picture of what the bowls look like.


I really like these bowls. I'm always using mixing bowls for cooking, whether I'm mixing ingredients for a cake, mixing together spices and seasonings for chicken or porkchops, or just needing an extra bowl to put ingredients in while I cook. Mixing bowls always come in handy and I love that these are so stylish! I have some red appliances in my kitchen, so these beautiful red bowls give my kitchen that extra pop of color. I made cake in these bowls and the cake turned out great!

The bowls are extremely durable and made well. They are sturdy and can handle some tough mixing, which is great! I love that the bowls stack into each other too which makes for easy storing. I know that I will be using these bowls for any of my future mixing needs. Hopefully soon I can be sending love and best dishes from my kitchen just like Paula does!

Angela Moore Review and Giveaway

Since the holidays are coming up, it's a perfect time to get dressed up and wear some great and fun jewelry.

Angela Moore was founded in 1997 and offers colorful designs since 1998. The Angela Moore collections of hand painted jewelry, resort fashions and home accents are based around "making everyday living an art."

I really love the pieces, they are so viviacious and fun. I love how colorful the jewelry is. It brightens up any outfit any time of day or night.

I was sent a beautiful bracelet to review. I received the Raj Revival petite bangle bracelet, and I absolutely love it. This bracelet is part of a new collection that has just been introduced.



Our Raj Revival silverplated petite bangle bracelet is sleek and chic. Bangle cuff is adjustable so you can gently bend to fit your wrist (7.5" - 8.5"). Looks great paired with Raj Revival classic or petite bracelets.

I love the sterling silver bangle paired with the beautiful hand painted beads, it's such a fun combination. The attention to detail is extremely evident here and it's just gorgeous. I love the silver and gold paint on the beads too. The swirls and flowers are so cute too. The bracelet fits me well and I like that it is adjustable so it could fit anyone comfortably. This bracelet would be great paired with jeans or even a dress for day or night wear. I know that I will be wearing this bracelet to holiday parties!

Angela Moore is offering one lucky reader the chance to win this adorable hand painted Martini Magic Christmas ornament. Can't you just imagine giving this as a gift to a friend or hanging this from your tree?

Melt Review

I love having toast with butter or margerine or even buttering a piece of bread, but butter isn't very healthy for you. I like to think that everything is okay in moderation though. I would say I use margarine 95% of the time, but do use butter for baking. It's nice to have a healthy alternative to a unhealthy product though.

Melt Buttery Spread, is an all-natural, rich, creamy butter alternative whose primary ingredients—virgin organic coconut oil and flaxseed oil—have been scientifically shown to promote healthy weight by boosting metabolism.

Compare this to butter, margarine and virtually all other butter substitutes that contain hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils and are linked to obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other deadly illnesses.

Created by a woman desperate to augment a restricted diet while fighting numerous digestive disorders, Melt delivers the sweet indulgence of real cream butter—without all of butter's drawbacks:

•Promotes healthy weight: Contains ingredients shown in studies to boost metabolism naturally.
•Real butter flavor: So rich and satisfying, your whole family will love it.
•All natural: 70% organic, 100% non-GMO ingredients. Kosher certified.
•Healthier: Absolutely no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. No artificial ingredients.
•Bakes and cooks like butter: Adds great flavor and doesn't separate like margarines and other substitutes.
•Spreads easily: Just like whipped sweet cream butter.

(Taken from website.)



This product is fabulous. You can have the taste and consistency of butter, but without all of the fat and calories and unnatural additives and ingredients. How can you get any better than that? When I first opened the tub, I was a little taken aback because the color of the spread was white. I was expecting a yellow or pale yellow color. I spread some on a warm piece of toast and let it soak. I took a bite and it was really delicious. It has a buttery flavor but it is subtle, certainly not over the top at all. It is creamy too. I can appreciate this spread because it is health conscious and helps you maintain a healthy weight, and of course is organic too which is important. The spread was easy to spread and it is also great because you can cook and bake with this just like normal butter or margarine.

This spread would be great on bagels, rolls, toast, and spread on bread for grilled cheese. Substitute this spread for butter or margarine on your next piece of toast or in your mixer for mixing up ingredients for a cake. Trust me, you'll thank me!

Lipo in a Box Review and Giveaway

If you're like me, you sometimes wear bras that don't always work with the outfit you're wearing, and the straps may stick out or the bra isn't low cut enough , etc. It can sometimes be a challenge to find a bra that works with the top or dress you pair it with.

Lipo in a box is a website which offers shapewear and body suits guaranteed to make you look your best at all times.

I received the Lipo In A Box Vivien Convertible Seamless "Go2Bra" for review.

Comfort, contour, and convertibility: the three "Cs" of a go-to bra. In addition to Lipo in a Box's trademarks--tuxedo-look trim, full coverage, and soft lining for modesty and comfort--this bra is designed with convertible underwire allowing for either wide-set, crisscross, or halter straps, making it ideal for both travel and everyday use. From the Lipo in a Box(R) Collection.
•34B-DDD, 36B-DDD, 38B-DDD, 40B-DDD, 42B-DDD
•Cup/back 85% nylon/15% spandex; lining 94% polyester/6% spandex; exclusive of trim
•Hand wash, line dry
•Made in Thailand







I like that this bra allows you to change the style depending on what sort of fit you want. It is not hard to change the straps either to your desired style. I received a taupe color and it's a perfect neutral color. This bra fits well and offers good support. It holds up well through laundering and looks good each time. This bra comes in a range of different sizes and is sure to fit most people. It comes in either taupe or white. My only complaint is that I wish it came in different colors.

GIVEAWAY RULES:
I will be picking ONE (1) winner who will win a Vivien Convertible Seamless Go2Bra in choice of size and color.
1. YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED! Please tell me why you would like to win this bra. (1 entry)

OceanSpray Review and Giveaway

I'm a big fan of juice, although if I drink it it has to be reduced sugar or 5 or 10 calories per serving. I don't like very sugary juices as they are bad for your health and teeth.

Ocean Spray, has been a favorite juice brand of mine for many years now. They produce delicious juices that are brimming with flavor. I love their yummy juices and they have become a household staple of mine. My favorites are the diet blueberry and diet cranberry juice. I am also partial to the cran-raspberry too.

I was sent a great package of OceanSpray products to review.


I received a bottle of diet blueberry juice, two boxes of drink mixes (cranberry and cran-pomegrante)and 3 bags of OceanSpray craisins in the flavors of trail mix, blueberry and pomegranate.

When I set this review up, I didn't give any indication of the flavors I liked or wanted, but ended up receiving flavors that I LOVE, which was a great surprise! The blueberry juice is wonderful and I love that it is only 5 calories and 2 grams of sugar per serving. The juice is delicious. Despite it packing a low calorie and sugar count, it is not low on taste at all. It is not overly sweet, but still has a bit of sweetness to it. It has a wonderful blueberry taste, and the juice is made with real fruit too. You can have a glass of this juice and not worry about how much calories and sugar you're putting into your body.

The drink mixes are perfect for on the go. Sometimes you don't want to drink just plain water, and you crave something with more flavor. Sodas are not healthy and some juices have 200+ calories for the whole can or bottle, so what do you do? These drink mixes are sugar free and just 5 calories per serving! They have 100% vitamin C per serving too. Just take a drink mix packet with you, pour it into your water, shake it up and you're good to go. This drink mix packet will jazz up your water and satisfy your flavor craving too. I haven't had the packets yet, but I drink a lot of water and I will be adding them to the next glass or bottle of water that I drink!

I've had the pleasure of enjoying Ocean Spray's craisins before, and I love them. The fruit and nut trail mix is perfect for the on the go or traveling. It's also good for keeping in your desk drawer at work for a quick pick-me-up. The bag contains sweetened dried cranberries, banana, pineapple, papaya, honey-roasted peanuts, cashews and coconut. This is an extremely healthy snack that not only tastes great, but is good for you too. The mix is made with real fruit, so no worries of any artifical fruit flavor. I love the combination of fruit that is made for this mix, all of it tastes great and the flavors work so well together. The fruit and nuts are extremely fresh.

The blueberry and pomegranate craisins are bursting with fresh fruit flavor and have a light hint of sweetness to them. I truly enjoy these snacks and turn to them whenever I want something sweet but don't want to eat junk. Thanks to these craisins I am putting something healthy and wonderful into my body.

GIVEAWAY RULES:
I will be picking ONE (1) winner who will win the same package of Ocean Spray products that I received.

Ziploc Review

I trust Ziploc for all of my food storage needs. This company keeps me in check for storing left over soups, bagging a sandwich, and more. Ziploc products are always stocked in my kitchen drawers.

Ziploc, provides food storage and home organization products that leave you organized and keep you sane!

I was sent many different Ziploc products for review purposes and couldn't be more thrilled. These products are fantastic for the upcoming holiday season.



I received Ziploc freezer quart bags that are limited edition and just in time for the holidays. These bags have a gift tag on the bag that has a cute little ribbon on it. These bags would be perfect for giving holiday cookies or treats to a friend or family member for Thanksgiving or Christmas. The gift tag has a "to" and "from" field on it, so it makes your gift-giving needs easy.

Next, I got Ziploc storage gallon slider bags. These are just like the freezer quart bags, but bigger. It could hold whatever you needed for holiday purposes. Want to give a dozen cupcakes or cookies to your minister or boss for Christmas? This will make it very easy to do so! I love that these bags are so large.

Thirdly, I received Ziploc limited edition festive colored container. These are so cute and I didn't know Ziploc was making these for the holidays! This is a set of 2 large gold containers that have lids too. The gold color is so festive and cute. These containers are microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe which is very convenient. The containers are large and could hold mashed potatoes, stuffing, cookies, soups, and anything else you might need to store before or after your holiday dinner. You could also pack holiday treats in here too and give them as gifts.

Finally, I was sent a Ziploc medium square red container and lid set. This is similiar to the large gold containers, but hold a lot less. These would be good for storing rolls in, leftovers, baked goods for friends, and even crafts. It could hold virtually anything you might need. These are also microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe too.

I was also sent a can of lemon scented pledge. This is a great product for your dusting needs. Keep your coffee table and wall unit clean and smelling good with this product! It's streak free too.

Pledge is hosting the “Pledge to Love Your Kitchen” Contest in partnership with Jyl Johnson Pattee of MomItForward.com. The contest offers moms the chance to win $15,000 in gift card(s) to a major home improvement retailer to help update their kitchen along with a year’s supply of Pledge to make it shine. For all the details and official rules, go to www.MomItForward.com.

Thanks to Ziploc all of my food storage needs are taken care of!

Ruth's Brownies Review and Giveaway

I'm pretty good with controlling myself on limiting most junk food I eat, but it's very hard for me to not eat chocolate. I just think of the delicious, sweet, creamy chocolate and I have to have some!! I find myself eating chocolate several times a week.

From the beginning, Ruth's Brownies, (and Cookie & Biscotti) Kitchen has been committed to baking the world's highest quality and best-tasting chocolate gourmet brownies, biscotti, cookies and cakes available anywhere in the world. We bake them for you, our customers, the most important people in the world. Named after Grandmother Ruth —and beginning with her recipes— we've created baked goods that have that memorable, delicious homemade taste we remember from our childhoods.

I am a huge fan of brownies. Nothing is better than a fantastic, fresh from the oven brownie. A glass of milk with it wouldn't hurt either.

Ruth's Brownies sent me 6 very large peanut butter swirl extra fudgy brownies.


MMMM, don't these look simply amazing?! Okay, wipe the drool from your screen and read on. From the moment I opened the package I could smell the aroma of the peanut butter and the chocolate emanating from the box. I couldn't wait to dig in! I had a bite and it was simply heaven, that's basically the only way to describe it. Chocolate and peanut butter have a magical combination and when paired together, it's beyond good. The brownie was moist, soft, and perfectly fresh. It was hands down, the best brownie I've ever tasted in my life.

The chocolate fudge was rich and sweet and delicious. The peanut butter was extremely fresh too. Ruth's is a company that is truly dedicated to producting delicious baked goods. I had to stop myself from eating too much of the brownie even though it's one regret that would be okay by me! These brownies would make an excellent gift or upcoming holiday dessert! I look forward to enjoying these brownies :)

Amrita Singh Review and Giveaway

I absolutely love jewelry, especially earrings. Necklaces and bracelets are so fun and I love wearing really chunky or dangly bracelets. It's fun to mix and match with outfits and express yourself in a stylish and creative way.

Amrita Singh, is a jewelry company which was launched in January 2003 by Amrita Singh. Since then, Amrita Singh designs have won the admiration and devotion of the fashion world, celebrities, and the everyday woman. Her unique blend of Old and New Worlds into exuberant and artistic pieces of fashion jewelry and accessories have won her accolades in the fashion industry.

I absolutely LOVE this jewelry collection. When I was told to pick out a piece, it took me so long because every piece I saw, I said I love this, or I want this, or this is beautiful. I've never looked at a collection and truly loved everything I saw. It was all my taste! They have the prettiest earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets! I'm sure you will find something you love.

When I finally narrowed it down, I selected the Navy Beach bracelet.


I love this bracelet. It is so me. It's slightly big on me because I have a small wrist, but if I push it back slightly, it's not bad. The bracelet stretches so it will fit anyone, and it is gun metal plated brass. I think it's perfect for night or day, but you could make it dressy for night. I love the combination of the gunmetal and black, it's such a fun and trendy combination. I'm very happy with this bracelet!

GIVEAWAY RULES:
I will be picking ONE (1) winner who will win a Navy Beach bracelet from Amrita Singh.
