Gortons Review and Giveaway!

I received products for free in exchange for my honest opinion and review. http://www.smartandcrunchy.com/
 


 
For Supper today my husband and I had Gorton's Grilled Tilapia. It was delicious. Gorton's prides themselves on there 5 stars for selected Tilapia for the mildest, flakiest fillets and no msg, or artificial colors or flavors. There products are inspected to ensure the highest quality and safety.
The grilled Tilapia has only 80 calories, 13 grams of protein and is Gluten Free. We paired our Tilapia with seasoned asparagus and grilled potatoes.

The boys don't care much for seafood, but I decided to let them try Gorton's Smart & Crunchy breaded fish sticks. I was scared they wouldn't even take a bite and I would be forced to fix another dinner, but to my amazement they loved them. The smart & crunchy fish sticks have 50 % less fat than Gorton's original fish sticks and only 180 calories, there bakes crispy and never fried. The fish sticks are 100% wild-caught Alaska Pollock. we paired the fish sticks with tater tots and ketchup :)

One day next week I'm looking forward to trying there fish sandwich fillets. Just pair with a bun and dinner will be done. There made from 100% fish, no fillers and no msg, and have natural omega 3

Kleem Intensive Rejuvenating Vitamin C Serum

    Aging and wrinkles go hand in hand for most. Maybe there's a few who are incredibly lucky in the genetics department and don't have to worry about it. But us normal folk have the nagging worry of wrinkles wether it be the bothersome "crows feet" on the corner of our eyes or the saggy bags underneath..Those noticeable wrinkles on the forehead and the biggest problem area for a lot,the neck. There's also us ladies who love being out in the sun, we want that beautiful sun kissed glow in the summer time, but along with that comes sun damage/sun spots. Kleem Organics intensive rejuvenating vitamin c serum is a must have if you have any of these issues. It's made 98% from naturally derived products and 72% organic. The Vitamin C serum is a concentrated form of active bio-available vitamin C. Combined with the amazing moisturizer power of Hyaluronic acid,the tightening and moisture retention power of witch hazel and the collagen boosting properties of Arginine. It works wonders in repairing the effects of sun damage which I know all to well about. I've been laying in the sun and the tanning bed for about 15 years and the damage has crept up. I've started getting sun spots the last couple of years and no matter what I've tried nothing made a noticeable difference until now. Kleem is amazing. My first application I could tell it was going to be an amazing product. I felt a tightening on my face that wowed me. The 3rd day I started seeing a smoothness that hadn't been there before, and by the 5th day of using it there was a visible difference in my wrinkles and sun spots.  I won't say my wrinkles were horrible, I had the normal crows feet, but the worst is the one big wrinkle on my forehead. That thing has bugged me for years lol. Thanks to Kleem I'm almost positive within a couple weeks it's going to faint away, atleast to the point that its not so noticeable. There's also a very visible difference in the sun spots. This was only 5 days later, imagine the difference in one month. Ladies, I highly recommend giving this product a try. You won't regret it.

Carnival Theme Party

                   
Yesterday we celebrated my sons 8th birthday with a Carnival theme party. It turned out great and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. The best part is that I didn't spend alot of money. Most of the decor was hand made with products we already had. A huge thanks to my mother in law who once again outdid herself, she does most of the handmade items.


These signs, along with some of the table cloths,plates,cups and napkins were purchased from Birthday Express. For less than $15


 This game was made with a box, wrapping paper and drawing paper. You just wrap the box, draw your clown faces and cut them out and glue them on. Cut out your holes. There's also a hole cut out in the back so that when the kids throw the ball you just reach in and get it. The kids loved this.


 One of my favorites is always the photo booth. Once again the photo booth was made from a large box,wrapped with white paper. The "curtains" are 2 separate red plastic table cloths. And a $1 banner from WalMart. I also purchased a "photo prop" package for $2.97 at WalMart. But these are also easily made. You can check my post about the super hero party if you want to know how to make your own.


I think the Prize Table was the kids favorite part, My plans with this were to give each kid so many tickets after winning a game, they could then use there tickets to "buy" a prize. I got busy though and just let them take what they want lol. I bought a 12 pack of inflatable guitars and a 12 pack of inflatable microphones on Amazon for around $5 a pack. These reminded me of the prizes at Carnivals when i was a child. The clown noses also came from Amazon for $3. I got the blow up clowns and lollipops from Birthday Express. Some bouncy balls,big lollipops,crazy string,water blasters and some more odds and ends from the Dollar Tree.




Balloon Darts were a hit. And so simple. A box wrapped in wrapping paper and we just taped the balloons on. We were worried the win would cause problems but the tape held. We used regular balloons and bought the darts on Amazon for less than $3




I went the simple route with food. Hotdogs, corn dogs, nachos and cheese. We had popcorn in pop corn bags i purchased from the Dollar Tree. And peanuts in brown paper bags. I purchased cracker jacks for $1.20 for 3 boxes. I bought several and just left themm in the boxes for the kids to grab. The cupcakes looked like popcorn which was an idea we saw on Pinterest. We used marshmallows for the popcorn look. Instead of huge bags of cotton candy for each kid which would have gotten expensive we uses lollipop sticks and baggies and put the cotton candy in them with a ribbon tied on it.

Loreal Consumer Testing

        
This is a great place for women. I signed up a few months ago and within a couple of weeks I was asked to try out 2 new shampoo and conditioners. Upon creating an account you will answer a lot of questions about yourself and your normal beauty routine. This helps placing you with the best opportunities. Each time an opportunity arises you will take part in a questionnaire to make sure you fit. When I received the shampoos and conditioners I was asked to try one set for 2 weeks then the other set for 2 weeks. I was then asked to fill out a questionnaire about how they worked. I received some free makeup for doing this and got to keep the products. https://consumertesting.lorealusa.com/

Tryazon

                          
Tryazon is a lot like House Party. You sign up on there site and apply for the products you want to try out. If you get picked you agree to host a small house party and let your friends try the products also. In return you give a review and pictures. And you get to keep the products at no cost.


Pinch Me

Pinch Me is a site that offers free samples once a month. All you need to do is sign up for an account. You will get an email a couple of days before the samples go live. Its best to keep an eye out so you can get on the site as soon as the samples are released because they go quick. Once on the site there will be a list of samples you qualify for. You click "Add to my box" on each sample you want to try. Your Pinch Me box will usually arrive within 28 days. You can do this once a month.                              

House Party

                         
House Party is the first place I signed up for that offers prizes. Within a month of signing up I was offered the chance of trying the new line of Jay Manuel beauty products before they had even hit stores. They offer lots of products, and all you have to do is apply for the one your interested one. You'll agree to have a small, intimate House Party where you invite atleast 10 friends to try the product out with you. They will send enough products for you to give your guests.

Attitude Little Ones "Worry Free Ingredients"

 All opinions are my own. I received product free of charge from a sponsored giveaway and am not compensated for this review.
 

I admit I'm not one of those Moms who had paid attention to the chemicals in my children's bath products, shampoos etc. How that's possible I really don't know seeing as though I stay anxiety ridden over there health, watching every move my kids make trying to keep them from falling down, keeping hand sanitizer in my purse ready to spray a stranger down and calling all relatives to make sure they aren't sick before a social gathering. But chemicals in bath products or in my house hold products is something I didn't think about until recently. I entered a sponsored giveaway on a friends blog Free For All. All I knew about the product was the name, "Attitude Little Ones". I ended up winning the contest and within a week I received a box full of goodies. I got laundry detergent, fabric softener, sunscreen, bath wash, shampoo, conditioner, lotions and bubble bath. I noticed on the front of every bottle very boldly it said "Carcinogen Free" and "Hypoallergenic. I started reading more about there products. If you go onto there website the first thing you will see is "Our products are made with uncompromised safety in mind and are made with worry free ingredients. While cancer causing chemicals, mutagens and reproductive chemicals are still legally tolerated contaminants in house hold products, you wont find them in ours."  Did you know that according to cancer.org 90% of cancers are linked to lifestyle choices and only 10% are genetically inherited?

 
Doesn't that make you look around your home at all the chemicals laying around? This company has laid out all of the stops. From bath products to window cleaner, dish liquids, even floor cleaner, all made safe with out the harsh chemicals found in most household and bath products. The best part is that they aren't expensive. Most of there stuff is around $4.99. I will definitely pay $5 if it means knowing I'm no longer exposing my kids to harsh chemicals, and instead will be enriching there bodies with all natural goodness.  The company has there own green house and every time they use a tree they plant another one in its spot. The company promises they made a deliberate decision to never compromise health at the expense of developing products. My 8 year old son was born with major health issues so I love the ideas of using all natural products. The day I got these products in the mail I used the bath products on the kids and they loved it. We tried the Pear scent and Wow, the smell was intoxicating, even my husband said "Why didn't you tell me about that, I would like to use it," lol...I did a load of laundry with there detergent and fabric softener and never has our clothing came out smelling so good. And for some reason I felt so comftorable putting the kids to bed that night in there freshly cleaned clothes. The chemical free products have put my mind at ease, over an issue I hadn't really thought about until being introduced to the Attitude Living products. So thank you Attitude Living for putting my families health at the forefront, and never compromising it.

CHECK OUT WHAT I WON FROM ONYX!!

I received the below mentioned product free from a contest win all opinions are my own.
Onyx Stainless Steel Canister Sets. A few weeks ago I won a contest on the Copy Kids Face Book page. It was a three piece stainless steel canister set by Onyx. I had never heard of the company so I wasn't expecting much. But boy was i wrong, they are amazing. The first thing that caught my eye was the sleek look and how great they looked on my counter top replacing the ugly cheap plastic ones I had. I decided to look on the Onyx website and check out there other products. I realized they are a rather new company and started out because they wanted to make safe and environmentally friendly products. They wanted something other than the plastic ones which when mixed with food can be very dangerous and not healthy. They knew glass products wouldn't be much better with the hazard of breaking. So eventually they decided upon stainless steel products. I have so much respect for businesses that take the safety of the consumer into consideration, and especially ones that start a business from scratch with the sole purpose of creating safe and environmentally friendly products. I highly recommend that you check out there site. I have my eye on there stainless steel ice cube tray which comes with 6 stainless steel cubes. You put the cubes in the freezer for a few hours and after frozen they will cool just about anything. Make some soup and your kids are starving, but the soup is to hot? Just throw one of there stainless steel ice cubes in there and within seconds you have a cooled off meal without worrying about diluting it with water. Do you like ice cold pop but don't like the way the ice waters it down? Perfect...this is all you need. When your done just put them back in the freezer to re freeze. Make sure to check out there website and see all of there products just click here

Braun No Touch & Forhead Thermometer Review

I received the below mentioned product free for review purposes all opinions are my own.
Last week I was sent the new Braun thermometer to try as a Klout Influencer. The new Braun infrared technology can measure forehead temperature in 2 seconds, its able to capture the heat from the forehead naturally in order to give an accurate temperature. My favorite part about the new thermometer is that the No Touch method keeps from the spread of germs. My 7 year old son has health issues so we have to be very careful of germs, also having a very rowdy 3 year old who touches everything and tries to pass it to brother makes this an even better thermometer. There is also a clear case to keep on the end until your ready to use it. You can press gently right in the center of the forehead or hold it about 2 inches from the forehead which makes it so easy when trying to get a sick, sleeping childs temperature. The colors on the thermometer will show Green when in normal range, yellow when a slight temp is found or red when its high. Before getting the chance to review this product I had another Braun thermometer that you stick in the ear. I used it without any problems for 7 years, so I have no doubts that the new Braun No Touch thermometer will live up to my expectation.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water in 3D!


The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water in 3D

My husband, mother in law and I took the boys this past weekend to watch the new Spongbob movie in 3D. I was instantly worried that my 7 year old old SN son and 3 year old wouldn't want to sit still or wear there 3D glasses, but I was pleasantly surprised that they both sat still the entire movie. My oldest was constantly smiling and laughing. They absolutely loved it, and I must say it wasn't to bad. I figured I would sit on my phone while they enjoyed the movie, but my phone didn't come out of my pocket. The 3D effects made for a much better time for myself. I definitely recommend taking your little SpongeBob fans to see this movie, make sure to plan ahead though, because the showing we had planned to see was sold out so we had to purchase tickets for the next showing and spend a couple hours in WalMart.

Jay Manuel House Party!


I received the below mentioned product free for review purposes all opinions are my own.
"Beauty. Its deeply personal, purely individual and surprisingly public. A womans appearance is an outward reflection of who she really is. Jay Manuel Beauty is about self sorcing your style and finding the path to you"  -Jay Manuel


    I was recently given the opportunity by House Party to try the new Jay Manuel makeup line, before it hit stores. I received 12 foundations ( one of each color ) from there Filter Finish collection, 12 mini eyeliners, blush brushes and eye shadow wands. One mascara, 3 full size compaqs of blush, 3 eye shadows and 3 lipsticks. 
     The foundation was the first thing that hit my eyes. It retails at $38 so I knew this must be good. The multi-functional silicone based liquid makeup is enriched with micronized silk and plant based antioxidants. It hydrates, primes and evens skin tone in one step, while camouflaging imperfections for a flawless finish. The silicone creates a smooth surface, allowing the color to blend into the skin to ensure better coverage without creeping into fine lines and wrinkles. Ive always had a hard time finding foundation that I feel really works, but the hunt is over and this foundation is my new obsession. The medium tones are in my opinion what most women will want. Myself i'm using the medium 3 and medium 4.  
     My other favorite was "The Everything Mascara" The adjustable and retractable wand puts the power of length and fullness in your hand for total control. Are you feeling like your lashes need more volume today? Simply turn the wand one click, or maybe you want to add length to your lashes instead? That's great, just turn the wand 2 clicks. Isn't that wonderful, Ive never saw a more versatile mascara.  So far i've only tried one of the eye shadow quads and I chose the Narcotic because I like the dark black-ish grey colors. The eye shadow is very well pigmented leading to a smooth application without the creasing. The matte shades are vivid and flat in appearance, while feeling velvety on skin. Shimmering hues are formulated with ultra fine pearls with a subtle sparkle and satiny finish. If your a makeup junkie and don't mind to shell out the money for product that's worth it then I highly recommend the Jay Manuel line.

MB INTEL Safety-Security-emergency preparation-home risk analysis Review!

 
 
 

I received the below mentioned product free for review and was compensated for my opinion all opinions are my own.
MBIntel.net
 

 
Do you feel safe in your home? Do you feel prepared to keep your family safe if you were faced with a natural disaster? I felt pretty confident up until a couple hours ago when I was asked to try the safety,security,emergency preparation risk analysis from MBintel. You fill out a questionairre that takes as little as 15 minutes where you answer questions about your home security, your plans if there were to be any sort of natural disaster, how safe your home is for children etc.
 Im in Eastern Kentucky so we dont have much as far as natural disasters happening here. There's the occasional flooding, well I guess I cant say occasional since our area has had 2 major floods in just the past few months as well as some isolated toranadoes, but i always felt as if my family was prepared. Although I dont live in a flood zone I do get worried about the potential this area has for flooding and I worry about how I would keep the kids safe if the water were to ever reach our home. What I worry most about is theft because this area is horrible for thiefs who feel entitled to steal from people rather than getting off there lazy butts and working for what they want. I took this analysis and to my surprise I scored a whopping 53%. From the looks of the report we need to work on our preparation and home security. This was definitely a wonderful tool and has sparked my desire to improve on my homes safety and security and my families preparation. Theres nothing more important to me than my families safety. I urge you guys to try this out. It will make you think twice if you feel like your prepared, and you feel like your home has good security.
