On June 9th, 2015 I am excited to share with you that you can bring home The Enchanting tale of The Last Unicorn from Shout! Factory. When I learned about this tale I was excited to share it with my son. I honestly never heard about this movie before. 

The Last Unicorn Synopsis
Upon hearing that she may be the very last of her kind on Earth, a Unicorn (Mia Farrow) goes in search of others like her. Her quest won’t be easy, as it leads her straight to the evil King Haggard (Christopher Lee) and his infamous Red Bull! And the journey is made even more complicated when, to protect her from the envious wrath of Haggard, a spell is cast to turn the Unicorn into the Lady Amalthea, a young, beautiful, human woman. But with this new body comes new thoughts and feelings, such as love for Haggard’s son, Prince Lir (Jeff Bridges). Will the Unicorn get lost inside this new body? Will she meet the fate of the other Unicorns? Or will she be able to defeat Haggard and his Red Bull with the aid of her friends, Schmendrick the bumbling magician (Alan Arkin) and Molly Grue (Tammy Grimes)?
Overall thoughts- At first when I saw this DVD I was not sure it would be our type of movie. I decided it would be a great family night movie and see how it goes. I was quite impressed where we ended up watching the whole movie and it was a decent story and had a great theme. It was nice going on the adventure to see if there are anymore of her kind. There will be trouble on the way and the kids were really into the movie and to see what happens on her adventure. My daughter got a little scared of the red bull, but she got over it pretty quickly. I would highly recommend this movie for your children. 
Make sure you keep an eye out for this DVD on June 9th. If you order the Last Unicorn Blu-ray and DVD  through ShoutFactory.com you will receive a free poster while supplies last.

Discover Your Inner Champion 
New on Disney Blu-ray® Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere, and Digital HD
 June 2nd
I am very excited to share with you that McFarland USA is coming out on Blu Ray and DVD. When I first saw previews of this movie I know for me it is a must see. When I was given a chance to be able to review a copy of this DVD I was very excited because I am usually not given the opportunity to actually be able to review an adult title. I would recommend this movie for teen and adults children may watch it but my children were not interested. 
About McFarland:
SYNOPSIS:             In the tradition of Disney sports movies comes “McFarland, USA” based on a true story of underdogs triumphing over tremendous obstacles. This heartwarming drama follows novice runners who strive to build a cross-country team under Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner) in their predominantly Latino high school. Everyone has a lot to learn about each other, but when Coach realizes the boys’ exceptional running ability, things change. Beyond their talent, it’s the power of family, commitment to each other and work ethic that transform them into champions — helping 
I personally loved this movie. I have read some of the critics review and they state that this movie is predictable. I mean I guess I would agree you see the previews and you kind of can tell what is going to happen and what it is about. That doesn't mean that it is a bad movie. I love how this movie is based on the true story. I enjoyed it and love the characters. I loved the storyline and meaning behind the movie. I would highly recommend this movie and I believe that this movie send positive messages to our youth and young adults.

As always , before using any of Nair products, read and follow the directions throughly.

I received several products for review. In my package I received Nair Glides Away Moroccan Argan Oil, Nair Ultimate Roll-On Wax For Face Moroccan Argan Oil and Nair Precision Kit For Face and Upper Lip Moroccan Argan Oil.

The first product I reviewed was the Nair Glides Away Moroccan Argan Oil. This product looks like deodorant. I would highly recommend keeping this out of reach so younger children do not get into it. This comes in a 3.3 oz roll on stick. This product is recommended for the bikini, arms and underarms. I love how it comes in a deodorant canister because when you are applying this product it simple and not messy where it getting onto places that it should not. When you apply this product you want to apply and even layer to the area that you want. After applying you want to take a warm washcloth and remove the product from that area. This product can even be used on corse hair which I have. This product is easy to use and it help where I don't have to shave everyday. I get a few day break.

The next product is Nair Ultimate Roll On Wax For Face Moroccan Argan Oil. This kit comes with .52 oz roll on wax tube, 1 precision stick and 20 reusable cloth strips. Instead of going to the saloon and spending a pretty penny you can invest in this kit and save a little. The product offers salon strength results removing even very short hair and is formulated to be water rinsable so it washes clean. This kit is very simple to use. Ready in just 3 minutes in hot water. Roll on applicator allow for precise even application. This treatment can last up for 8 weeks which is nice. 

The last product I received Precision Kit For Face & Upper Lip Moroccan Argan Oil. This kit includes .69 oz Hair Remover Cream and .50 oz Moisturizer.  If you are looking for a product that helps removes hair from face and upper lip. This is a great product and is a hand free and easy application that removes all visible hair. After using this product this product helps rebalance and moisturizing skin after the hair removal. 

I was quite impressed with the product from hair. This is a great new line and I would recommend stocking up on these products

Potty Patrol System

Picture
Potty Patrol's Potty Training Alarm Diapers are designed to notify you when your child starting to wet their diaper. So you can rush them to potty so you can get them used to going on the potty. What comes in the Potty Patrol Start Kit you ask? 
The picture above is what comes in the Potty Patrol Starter Kit. Potty Patrol Training Guide which includes all the information you will need to use the kit. 24 hour alarm sensor diapers. The diapers have a blue stripe which is the sensor that detects the wetness. The blue stripes trigger the alarm to make a sound which is twinkle twinkle. You can buy just the kit or you can also buy refills if needed.
I have tried this on my two year old daughter. She is in the process of potty training where there are times she will go both on the potty and then not care. We have been trying these diapers and here is what I think about them. I think these would be great at home use. They would not be great for the store or other out door places because it would be hard to get them to a bathroom when you hear the sound of them having to go. I would like to see them in pull ups because they are a little small on my daughter. What I really like about the system is that the alarm lets me know when she is going and it has actually been helping because she is starting to let me know when she needs to go. Sometimes I have no indication when she needs to go and it been a guessing game and this has been helping us get into the routine and has been a big helps. I still have these diapers left but when we go out during the day i do not put them on or at night time.

I was able to try two of their tins for review. I was able review rectangular tin that had three lip balms in side and another circular tin with three of their perfumes in side. 

The first tin that I reviewed was their Rosebud lip balm tin. Three lip balms come in this specific tin. The three lip balms that I received in this tin where Minted Rose, Strawberry, and Rosebud Salve. Each lip balm comes in a .8 oz container. What I like about each lip balm is that they smell great, there easy to get the amount you want out with your finger and they do not smear. I also like how the feel of the lip balm feel and it does not feel sticky after applying. 

The first balm that I tried was their Strawberry Lip Balm. I was very fond of this lip balm because I love strawberries. When I smelled this lip balm it smelled like Strawberry shortcake. This lip balm is made with natural beeswax and a trade secret blend of strawberry flavors. What I like about this lip balm is the flavor is amazing and it helps protect my lips. 

The second Lip Balm that came in the tin was their Rosebud Salve. This product works wonders if you have chapped lips, dry skin and minor burns. I was excited to try this product on my son. He has a major issue with chapped lips and this product works wonders. I agree when they say that this salve is a miracle in a can. This product helped my son get some relief from his chapped lips. 

The last lip balm that came in this tin was their Minted Rose Lip Balm. I love peppermint so I fell in love with the smell of this lip balm. This products is great for moisture for your lips and great for a gloss. This balm is great for headaches and tension. You can dab a little bit on your temples to help relieve the tension.

Are you trying to find a great game for your kids for their birthdays? Well join the fun and look into NintendoDS Disney Big Hero 6 Battle in the Bay. I don't know about you but in my house my children are huge fans of Baymax. Recently my son watched the movie and it been Baymax everything!! This game is rated for Everyone 10 and up. This game is created by Gamemill entertainment. 

About the game:
Set after the events of the film, the game follows robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and his like-minded friends turned heroes – Baymax, GoGo Tomago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, and Fred – as they attempt to save the city of San Fransokyo from a battlebot invasion. The adventurous gameplay is brought to life with vibrant comic-style storytelling that gives players control of the stars of the film in this action-packed combat platformer.
Disney Big Hero 6 lets players interact with all six members of the squad, each in unique ways. Playable characters include Fred, boasting over-the-top power; GoGo, specializing in speed; Wasabi, featuring fast-paced combat skills; and Hiro who’s adept at platforming.
Overall thoughts:
My son really enjoyed playing this game. I had to actually cut him off this game so he could do something else. He enjoyed it so much and kept bugging me if he could plat it again. He had trouble at first playing the game, but caught on quite quickly. He enjoyed using super hero powers to send the robots flying in the game he thought that was pretty entertaining. There are over 30 levels of playing so it keeps your child entertained for awhile. Also my son liked that he could be different characters like Hiro, Go Go, Wasabi and Fred and fight alongside Baymax.

I would highly recommend this game for a birthday present for your special loved one. You can find this game at your local retailer.

Join the fun on June 4th from SHOUT! FACTORY. This is a great family movie. I was excited that we were able to receive a copy so we could have a family night and watch this movie. When I first watched the trailer of this movie I was captured and was intrigued to view this film. Here is a little background about the movie.
Los Angeles, CA – A beautiful new film out of Ireland, The Legend of Longwood, is coming to DVD on June 4 from Shout! Factory, following its appearance at several film festivals in early 2015. An adventure for all ages, the release includes a fascinating behind-the-scenes featurette as a bonus feature.
   Crumbling castles, mysterious riddles, frightening spirits, beautiful horses and a plucky, fearless heroine - director Lisa Mulcahy has lovingly burnished the most beloved coming-of-age elements in this "quest" film, set in the starkly beautiful landscapes of rural Ireland, set to music from Brave composer Patrick Neil Doyle.
The film stars Lucy Morton as Mickey Miller, a thoroughly modern 12-year-old American girl whose great love is horses. Not surprisingly, she has little enthusiasm for her mother’s plan to take Mickey and her little brother to start a new life in a run-down mill she has inherited in Longwood, a windswept Irish town at the end of the world. Mickey’s presence in Longwood coincides with the return of the Black Knight, a legendary ruler who found no peace after his baby daughter was taken from him, and whose appearances always mean that something evil is going to happen to the villagers. Mickey hears and sees things that others can’t, and forms an immediate bond with Silver, the proudest, haughtiest, most untamable horse in the stalls of a nearby castle. Realizing that she is directly linked to the story of the Black Knight, Mickey and her new friend Sean set out to redeem the knight so as to bring lasting peace to Longwood. But first she must save the lives of seven horses and thwart the evil plans of a greedy, ambitious woman – a mighty handful even for the bravest girl!
Overall this movie was very cleaver and kept our home family entertained. Although I would recommend this movie for children over 12. My son enjoyed it although my daughter played with her toy during it. I really enjoyed the mystery of the movie. I am not into violence and mystery movies for adults. This was a nice change of pace and a great movie to watch with the family!!

You can find this movie at your local retailer on June 7th

“MAYA THE BEE MOVIE” Synopsis
Maya is a little bee with a big heart. She dreams of an exciting life of freedom, fun and adventure – the world is simply far too interesting to stay inside a hive! Her funny attempts to fit in bring her into trouble with the Queen’s narrow-minded royal advisor, Buzzlina. With her best friend Willy, Maya buzzes out into the meadow on an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery.

While most bees believe that other insects should be feared, Maya can’t help but make friends with Flip the charismatic and eccentric grasshopper, Kurt the dung beetle and even Sting, a young hornet. But when the Queen’s royal jelly is stolen, it will take Maya and all of her bug buddies to figure out who did it and how to save the day!
I would highly recommend this DVD for your children. My daughter absolutely loved this movie. It grabbed her interest and she has watched it several times. Usually it is hard for her to watch something all the way through let alone watch it twice. It was very cute movie and a great movie to watch with the family. Highly recommended.

Are you looking for a new style for Spring and Summer. Your in luck with Kiss InstaWave. Kiss Insta Wave can give you many different looks for your Spring/Summer time.
The first look that you can achieve for the Spring time is Tousled Hot For Spring Curls. This is a very easy look to do.If you would like enhance and define your natural curly hair all you need is to apply a texture spray on your dam hair. You want to apply from your roots to your ends. You want your hair 90% dry before using the KISS InstaWave for a more defined look.
The second look is Effortless Waves: This is also another simple style for your Spring and Summer time. All you need is to blow dry hair using your fingers to play off the natural texture of your hair. You want to create a center part, then you want to use the Kiss InstaWave to catch and cure the mid lengths of the hair. Than you will be leaving the ends free then you want to pull down vertically. Then after styling you can leave it or brush through it and rough it up a little and you have another great look.
My favorite style out of all three is this one the Tousled Ponytail. If you are running late to work or just out this would be the perfect style. Pull hair tightly back on the sides and tease the top for added volume. Perfect look with texture and curls at the ponytail using the Kiss InstaWave. Easy to hold, from any angle, with any hand- now curling the back of your hair will be a cinch. 
This product is easy to use and heats up quite well. It also hold the heat well and not over heat. This heats up pretty quickly so when your in a rush it is easy to use. The suggested retail price is 59.99. You can find it at amazon.com or Target.

Greek Yogurt Bites

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I want to share a secret with you today. I have found the most amazing product out there. Greek Yogurt Coated Bites. I will confess these were meant to be for my children for Easter. As you can tell I hid them. I know I am bad but when I tried these I did not want to share because they tasted so great.

About Rickland Orchards and their Greek Yogurt Bites. Greek yogurt isn't just a tasty alternative to regular yogurt-- it's better alternative to regular yogurt. With almost twice the protein and fewer carbohydrates, the benefits of Greek yogurt are enormous and enormously delicious in their Greek yogurt coated snacks.

I was sent a variety of their Greek Yogurt Coated Bites to try. First I received small on to go packets of Greek Yogurt Covered Almonds and Chocolate Cover Pretzel Yogurt Bites. When I first opened up the package I had to try these. They did not last long. They tasted great!! I will be honest I am not a huge yogurt or greek yogurt fan so I was worried at first. That changed when the packs were disappearing. I really enjoyed the almonds the tasted wonderful and the greek yogurt coated on them. All I could say is wow. I am a huge fan of chocolate cover pretzels. When I saw the greek yogurt chocolate pretzel bites I had to try them. So far I will have to admit they are probably my favorite out of them. With trying both of these I couldn't really tell you that I noticed it was Greek Yogurt but it tasted great.

Then in the bigger backs I received the fowling to try. Greek on the go Carmel Bites, Strawberry Bites and Blue Berry Bites. These bites are small round covered bites with the fruit inside or the carmel. I love them of course because the are bite size and do not make the best. I am guilty when I opened up the Blue Berry Bites I could not put the bag down and when I did they were empty:( that made me sad. I also really like the strawberry chews they where amazing and especially if you are a strawberry fan. For those days your down in the dumps and need a chocolate fix I would recommend the chocolate carmel ones.

I will be honest at first I did not have high hopes on this product at all. I gave them a fair chance and now I am looking to order more of them :) I would highly recommend this gift for Mothers Day. I know I am making a request here at home for more for Mother's Day.
