My Review

We are not the most organized people you will ever meet, not by a long shot. I work, my boys go to school, we have doctors appointments, family events, and the list goes on. It's a full time job trying to keep track of everything we have going on. I was so happy to get these products from Shoplet. One thing I can always use is a calender. These products make scheduling and keeping track of appointments and events very easy. There is plenty of room to write events in the weekly/monthly planner, and on the wall calender. I can see the whole week or month at one time and know exactly what is going on. The wall calendar has a nice, sleek style that looks great hanging on my wall.

Give your casino a fresh look with cool uniforms



Probably the easiest way to give your casino or club a fresh look is with new and stylish uniforms. The sense of professionalism conveyed with the right uniform make these an often under-utilized resource when trying to build a business. Beyond identifying the individual as part of the team, a great uniform also instills a sense of pride and confidence in your staff, too. 

Customers often report challenges when visiting area casinos in finding staff or service when it is needed. This could be due to a lack of a clear, cohesive dress code. Don't think of it as removing autonomy from your staff, but more of a way to build solidarity and make each member feel more of a part of the casino team. 


Talk with your current team to gather some ideas and some opinions regarding comfort, fit, and features that are most congruent with the jobs that they do. Then, sit down and narrow down the potential vendors that offer quality uniforms in breathable fabrics. If you order today, you could have the new uniforms delivered right to your door without having to spend any additional effort or exert yourself to have a freshly rejuvenated staff. See what new uniforms can do for your current business, and how they can improve your bottom line.

This time I received 2 packages of paper from Neenah at no cost in exchange for an honest review.

I received Colored Card Stock and Colored Paper



My Review

We have really enjoyed this paper and card stock from Neenah. My kids love the colors and they love to print out cards for friends and family, and regular pictures and assignments on the colored paper. The card stock is really nice quality, and pictures and words print out really nicely on it. The colored paper is also great quality and prints beautifully. The paper and card stock both go through my printer easily with no snags and no issues. Having this paper and card stock is going to be great for the holidays for crafts and cards also.

Review


We used to have boxes upon boxes of foil, and cans of cooking spray taking up room in our pantry. It really was a pain to make sure our pans were non stick when we wanted to cook or bake something. The foil is a pain to get on the pan just right, and can rip and make a bigger mess. The spray is messy too and gets on everything on the counter when you spray the pan. We got this Cookina Reusable Cooking Sheet to review and couldn't wait to try it. We love it! This works exactly like it says it does, and it is truly reusable. Nothing sticks to this. We have done Tater Tots, pork chops, cookies, pizzas, and used this to line a cake pan. It cleans easily with just a wipe and stores right back in the box, We really love cooking and baking with this, and will probably never buy foil again.

My Review

You may, or may not remember I worked with World Vision last year, also around the holidays. They impressed me with their products and their vision then, so I was more than happy to work with them again this year. This year I got to pick this beautiful Silver Cuff. The intricate design on this cuff is so gorgeous. The cuff fits nicely, and is adjustable. I get a lot of comments and compliments when I wear this out. I love to tell people that I got it from World Vision, and that by buying this beautiful peace, I'm helping and giving where it's most needed.

My Review

This book from YourNovel.com was so fun to read! The stories all revolve around Vampires and their hidden world. The main characters are myself and my husband. There are so many small, personalized details that I got to include when I created this book. Those small details make it so much fun to read. I love vampire novels and anything supernatural, and having it personalized just added to the reading experience. My husband in not really a reader at all, but I was able to convince him to check this book out, and he also really enjoyed it!

Bad Blood Book Review


I am Britannia. I am your protector. I will fend off the hungry hordes of undead hands that reach toward you. I am your steadfast defender. I will stand between you and the zombie masses as they try to taste your flesh. I am strong, unyielding, and dedicated to your survival. All I ask from you… is your blood.” 

A five-hundred-year-old bloody game of vengeance will need to be put on hold if vampires are to survive the zombie uprising. Britannia and Nicholas, bitter enemies and the only two surviving vampires left in London, have to work together to save un-infected humans and deliver them safely to a vampire stronghold in the Scottish Highlands. Unable to drink the zombie ‘bad blood’, the remaining vampires need the humans to stay alive. But will the vampires tell the survivors who they are and what they want from them? Will Britannia be able to hold back her vengeance for the greater good? Is survivor Josh the reincarnation of Britannia’s murdered true love? And can she bring herself to deliver him to the ‘safe’ hold? Survival instincts run deep, but bad blood can run deeper.

I received a copy of this book at no cost in exchange for my honest review.

My Review

This was a really great vampire vs. zombie story! This isn't a very long book and the action moves at a very quick pace. The characters are developed really well for such a short story. I found myself really liking the main character Britannia, and I even liked her nemesis, Nicolas, a little bit. Zombies have taken over London and vampires are the saviors. This is a really original and unique take on the supernatural books I usually read. There is plenty of blood and action, and then mixed in is a little bit of a beginning of a love story. I really enjoyed Britannia and Nicolas's interactions, and the good vs evil struggle. The ending leaves the reader satisfied for the ending of this part, and looking forward to what comes next for Britannia and her human wards.

About the Author


"I guess I’ve always been a storyteller, not in a ‘liar liar pants on fire’ kind of way, although I do work in advertising! When I was little, kids would crowd around me in the playground and I’d tell them tales of blood soaked horror filled with vampires, werewolves, ghosts and more. Yes, most would consider me a disturbed child, but my playmates couldn’t help themselves, they’d huddle around me every break time like an ancient tribe feeding off the fear; and that’s how I learned that horror stories hold a certain power, no matter what some might say, everyone is addicted to a good scare, especially if it is somewhat rooted safely in unrealistic beings… or are they unrealistic?

Writing was really a natural progression. Right now I’m obsessed with writing: a YA Urban Fantasy novel, a Paranormal Romance novella series, and several short horror stories! So I’m currently living in a functional fiction coma – and loving it!

I’ve so far been published in 5 countries: USA, UK, Australia, Ireland and Canada and had short stories included in 40 anthologies with over 17 publishers."

I received a variety of products from Good Earth Beauty at no cost in exchange for my honest review.


I received 

Bentonite Clay Detox Soap
Activated Charcoal Soap + Tea Tree
Gardenia Rose Body Balm
Bubble Gum Lip Balm
Lavender Vanilla Lip Balm
Vanilla Lip Scrub
Cherry Vanilla Lip Scrub

My Review

I have very sensitive and dry skin, and I have patches of dermatitis that drive me crazy. I am always looking for and trying new, and natural, skin care products to try to get some relief. My lips get very chapped from the weather, mainly the heat, here in sunny Florida. The first thing I noticed when I opened this box of goodies was the smell of the soap. It was amazing, and I knew I was gonna love these items. The scents and flavors are fantastic, and they are strong so you really get to experience the scent as you use the products. The soaps I received are amazing and have really helped with some of my skin issues and discomfort. The Body Balm has a nice light scent, so it's not over powering, and it makes my skin feel soft and moisturized for the whole day. The lip scrubs are great, easy to use, and have a great scent also. These products are so easy to use because they don't contain any unnatural chemicals, so there's no stinging, redness, or unpleasant smells. The lip balms are my favorite I've had in awhile, the scents are good, and they work wonderfully to prevent or sooth my dry chapped lips.

I am so happy with these products. I will definitely be trying out some other items from this shop!
