Lola Granola Review and Giveaway

      Nutritious and quick are not two words that tend to go hand in hand. Generally if you want something quick it doesn't always tend to be nutritious, and if it is nutritious it doesn't always tend to be quick.
    A grab and go breakfast or snack is something that can come up in anyone's day. You have a late start to the morning or are on the go and can't stop for a proper meal it can really drag you down. So a pick me up in the form of a granola bar can really come in handy.
    Most granola bars on the market are loaded with extra sugars and preservatives that turn something healthy into something not so healthy. This is where Lola Granola comes into play.
Mary Molina, a mother of 4 young children, and her husband were relying on public assistance and eating junk food to save money. This sparked the idea in her head to make homemade granola bars for her kids to take to school. This way she could control what went into them, and could adjust the recipe to suit her children's allergy and dietary needs.
    Her husband Ernie took them to work with him as well. His coworkers loved them so much they started to request to buy some. This is where Lola Granola really took off.
     The Lola Granola bars are made in small batches in upstate New York facility, a member of Pride of New York,  and support local food anti-hunger programs.
       “Because we care, we share Lola Granola Bars with anti-hunger children's back pack programs,” Bee Gr8full Naturally – Mary Molina, Mom and Founder, Lola Granola Bars.
        They are made with honey as a sweetener and does not add any rice, wheat, corn or soy fillers, hydrogenated oils or refined sugar. All bars are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and kosher.
       One of the first flavors she came up with was the almond and cranberry. She mostly made it for her husband but her youngest Lola loved it and she decided to make a flavor for all of her children.
        She removed the nuts for her younger child Ruby and left in the bright beautiful red cranberries. For her son Enzo, she decided he was daring and a little bit nuts and made him a combination of almonds and cashews. and Ellie, the oldest, was sweet and caring has one made out of dates and cashews.
        I love the natural honey flavor on all the bars. I am a huge fan of cashews and cranberries and I can't find anything about these that I do not love. Granola is amazing and Lola Granola is definitely now my favorite kind of Granola Bars. Be sure to check them out on their facebook and to purchase check out their website HERE.
          They are pretty amazing! And to make it even MORE amazing Lola Granola is allowing one of my readers to have their very own chance to win a sample pack of the very same flavors I received! All you have to do is follow the rules below and enter through the rafflecopter!

I-Got Tech Magnetic Screen Door Review

     My dog loves going outside on the balcony here. He is a huge fan of people and he likes looking out over the balcony at the playground below. He is also an absolute mess when he has a door shut behind him and will have you open and close it over and over. So I find myself constantly getting up and down to open the door to let him in, only to close it and realize he still wants to be outside. HE just doesn't like having the door closed behind him. This lets in all kinds of bugs and causes all kinds of problems, especially if someone is trying to watch television and I have to keep walking in front of them to get the door.
      The Magnetic Screen Door from IGotTech is a lifesaver for this kind of problem with my dog. It would allow him to walk through it back and forth without a door being closed behind him while simultaneously making sure there are no bugs getting in the open door while he is trying to decide where he wants to be.
      Not only is this good for pets it is also great for hands free in-door, out-door transferring of items without leaving your door wide open for bugs. It is also fantastic to allow cool winds through an open door where there is no screen to protect you from the elements and insects.
      One of the best features about the Magnetic Screen Door is how easy it is to install. You just simply remove the backing of the sticky tack velcro and carefully press around the frame of the door and that's it! If you choose you can add more anchors in the form of tacks or nails if you wish. The velcro allows for easy removal, with no gaps when placed and will fits doors up to 34" x 82.
      The 26 heavy duty magnets sewn into the lining will connect every time, leaving no gaps for bugs of any kind to get through.

Nature's Recipe Oven Baked Chewy Treats Review


    Once again has come through and knocked it out of the park with another fantastic treat. I can't get over how many varieties they have that all happen to be good and good for Dexter. These Nature's Recipe Oven baked Chewy Treats are no different.

    These oven baked treats are the perfect size and are a fantastic chewy texture that are small enough that my dog can handle without choking on them. These particular ones are Lamb flavored with Carrots and Apples. They smell like a sweet barbecue which is not offensive to my nose at all which is a huge plus for me! I love that they are made without corn, wheat, or artificial flavors or colours and Dexter loves that they are made with real lamb. 
    The ingredients on the bag aren't shocking to read and that is fantastic. Not to mention that with the size of the bag you are definitely getting your money's worth. He still hasn't made it through the whole bag and it has been nearly a month!
      One thing most people take for granted is the slide to zip closure. As ridiculous as it may seem, I often assume everything now a days should be able to close after you open it for storage but that is not always the case. I don't take those for granted and Dex loves that his treats don't get stale.
       There is nothing I can say that I, or Dex found to be bad about these particular treats and he couldn't be happier with them. That makes them okay in my book and I love that about them.
      If you want to get in on the action check out Chewy to find all kinds of fun stuff from food, to grooming, to flea and tick care for your dog or cat. If you want to learn more, check out their website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest orGoogle+ to stay in the loop!

July Loot Crate-Villains Review

  If you missed the last review I did for the May Loot Crate you can check that out HERE. Since then I have become huge fans of some of the gamers that were featured in the box and I couldn't be more thrilled!

   This month though they are focusing on DC Villains! I don't think the squeal I made when I opened my box was heard by normal human ears, but you can bet my dog wasn't feeling it. The box alone on the inside is absolutely amazing! Made to look as if the Joker has scribbled on the inside of the box with a black marker, it is definitely fun to see.

      The first thing on the top of the box was a shirt. I have yet to see a shirt they have come out with that I haven't liked and this one was no exception. At first glance it looks like a simple Joker shirt, but Loot Crate loves taking it a step further and mashing together two things into one and it is actually not the Joker at all, it's Loki! Loki has taken on the Jokers persona in this awesome black screen printed shirt. It has amazing colours and he even decided to change his name to Joki just to get into character a little more. It's a super soft shirt and one I am
proud to have in my collection.
      The next out of the box was in the same vein as the first. It appeared to be posters and I was correct! It was two 8x10 rolled posters of Harley Quinn and the Joker. I absolutely love how they are in two different styles. Harley having more of a realistic/painted look and the Joker looking very sinister and if you look closely you can see he is actually made out of bats! I am in love with these and cannot WAIT to pick up some frames to put these on my wall! I have always been a huge fan of the Joker and I can't get over how amazing these two posters are!
      Next, Loot Crate loves adding some really fun smalls to their boxes. This
month was no different. The most fun being the pair of Deadpool socks. Hilarious and practical, they are now my favorite pair of socks. Also included is an amazing Bowser propaganda magnet that I immediately placed on the fridge. I grew up on Mario starting on the original Nintendo and Super Nintendo as did most people around my age, so this was a true treasure in my eyes. 
     What would a villains box be without the true villain Darth Vader? I am a key chain hoarder and I am enthralled by the rubbery Darth helmet key chain I received this month!
      Another fantastic item included was a dvd documentary about the super villains of DC Comics. This looks and sounds amazing and I am waiting on the opportunity for my brother to have some free time so we can watch it together.
      Finally the gem of the box is actually the Loot Crate exclusive 1st edition of the Rocket Racoon Comic. This is something I plan on holding on to for a long time. I haven't had the opportunity to watch the movie Guardians of the Galaxy yet but I cannot WAIT to see it! 
     And What Loot Crate wouldn't be complete without the button of the month featuring the image on the front of the information catalog sent in the box with Darth, Deadpool, and Harley Quinn. This entire box was all win in my eyes and I can't wait to see what they come out with in the future!
      If any or all of this intrigues you then you should check out Loot Crate! With a price that tickles my inner geek of $13.37 plus shipping and handling you can receive your own and join to see what goodies you have coming for you! With a $40 retail value inside each box that price is a steal! Also, signing up gives you the chance to be one of the lucky subscribers to win a Mega Crate valued at over $750. Past Mega Crates have included a Gaems, collection figures, themed Zelda swag, a PS4, and an Xbox One among other things. All you have to do is be a subscriber!

Also be sure to check Loot Crate out on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram to keep up or share photos!

BEDTIME BLISS Sleep Mask, Ear Plugs & Carry Case Review

    Sleep is an important part of life. Without sleep your health can physically decline. If you are a light sleeper like I am you find that you may have a lot of trouble with sleeping after the sun has risen. Or maybe you have a partner who likes to read in bed at night, or watch television before bed. All of these things can disrupt your sleep cycle.
    Regular cloth sleeping masks can sometimes irritate your eyes because as your eyes move under the sleep mask your lashes brush on the fabric. This can be very unsettling and even slightly painful after a while.
    I have tried another brand of sleep mask intended for heating an cooling and it eventually lost it's shape and the thin elastic band has stretched to a point where the mask is now no longer usable. 
     I was very happy when I first received the Bedtime Bliss sleep mask as I seen it was made out of a super light contoured foam. The elastic strap was wide and attached with velcro in the back allowing you to re position to make it as tight or as loose as you need to fit.
   I was absolutely thrilled with how well it blocked out the light without impeding on my breathing and I loved that I could make it as snug as I needed but there are a few downsides.
    I am not sure if it just mine or if they are all sewn this way or I just have high ears. (weird right?) but when putting the mask on I have to pull the strap down over my ears or it digs in and doesn't block out all the light coming in from under the mask at the bottom around my nose. Also be aware this velcro is really good velcro and have had to battle it a few times when it became stuck in my extremely long hair. Aside from those two small issues I have been using it every night for almost two weeks and have loved every minute of it.
      The light foam doesn't trap in a lot of heat so it doesn't feel overly hot on your face and the mask is easily washable.
       The ear plugs that come with the mask are just icing on the cake if you have trouble sleeping in a noisy room. They are a traditional memory foam style plugs in a nice black fabric drawstring bag so you never have to wonder where you put them!
       It's a fantastic set and it is well worth the money if you need the extra help. I am a daytime napper and it works wonders for that as well! You will definitely get your money worth with how often you will be using this mask!

Surpahs Digital Body Scale Review

         No one likes watching their weight, but sometimes it is a necessity. Medical issues, overweight, dieting, or working out there is always a reason to keep track of the numbers. Though the numbers are just numbers and it is more to do with health sometimes it is something that can't be passed up. If you have to monitor your weight why not do it in a fun way?
     Surpahs Body Scale is the MOST FUN scale I have ever seen in my life! Not only is it absolutely sleek in design and super simple to use. The no muss no fuss scale also comes in a variety of fun colours!  I happened to choose a beautiful bright blue shade but you can also pick it up in white, pink, green, or red! At the moment I do not know if the red and green is available but you won't be sorry no matter the shade as it is perfectly adorable in any colour!
        The scale itself has a tempered glass platform and a high precision strain gauge sensor system. This allows the scale to measure up to 400 pounds. This is not something you find often, especially for scales this small.
         One of my favorite things about this scale is the back of the scale has a simple button that switches between kilograms and pounds and there is no tap to display before you step on the scale. All you have to do is set it and forget it until it's time to use the scale!
        The scale itself is incredibly small. This makes it great for storing in a place where there is little fear of stubbing toes or tripping over the scale. For someone as clumsy as I am, this is a fantastic feature. The only downside to the portability and the small size of this scale is it is probably not suitable for people with larger feet. Though my feet do hang off the ends of the scale, as long as you stand still (don't rock) on the pressure sensors then it gives you a perfect readout every time. My brother who has much larger feet than I do was able to use the scale with no problems whatsoever. So as long as you are careful how you stand on the scale, regardless of your foot size you shouldn't have a problem!

Surpahs Digital Kitchen Scale Review

       If you are a person who has to watch what they eat or likes to have a kitchen scale on hand for measuring while baking this may be the one for you! This easy to use scale has a sleek, stylish, modern, contemporary design, large magic lens LED display, and 4 high precision weigh sensors to support accurate measurements.
 The scale is a beautiful stainless steel that will fit with any stainless modern kitchen decor, or if you find it doesn't fit the aesthetic of your kitchen or you are at a loss for counter space it is small enough to hide away in any drawer. All you need to do is pull it back out and place it on a level flat surface to use it again.
        It only takes 4 AAA batteries which is fantastic, but is made better by the fact that they are included! The screen even has a low battery indicator so you always know when it's time to replace them.
         The touch screen display has a UNIT conversions and TARE function so you can measure just about anything. No longer will you have to struggle if your recipes call for something measured by weight, fluid ounces, grams, or milliliters. It will measure anything up to 11 pounds.
          With 100% guaranteed product satisfaction, and 2 year manufacturer warranty they want to make sure you are completely happy with how your scale works for you and that says a lot about them as a company!
           This may not be the first kitchen scale I have reviewed but I am definitely in love with this one! The look of this digital kitchen scale is absolutely stunning and something I don't mind having displayed on my kitchen counter.

Surpahs Bamboo Cutting Boards Review

     If you are anything like I am, you love being in the kitchen. Everyone should love the kitchen, that's where the food is! One of my favorite pastimes is watching cooking shows and learning all I can about cooking so I have the knowledge to whatever I want in the kitchen.
   One of the staples in the kitchen that you should have is a good set of cutting boards. Most people tend to go with the big heavy butcher block cutting boards, and though those look really fantastic they can be a bit of a pain. They are bulky, heavy, hard to clean properly and if you aren't careful with them they will probably break a toe if you manage to accidentally drop one.
         Surpahs has actually come out with a pretty fabulous set of bamboo cutting boards. They are ultra thin and composed of 3 layers of high quality eco friendly bamboo that is a solid, thinner, lighter design  made to prevent warping, cracking, and splitting. The boards are even knife friendly to help protect your blades integrity.
         They come in three different sizes, small, medium and large size (8", 11" and 13"). This gives you the option to choose the size board for what you are working on. Cutting up vegetables for a soup? Use the larger board! Need a small work surface to chop up a little bit of onion? Use the smallest! The best part about the bamboo is they absorb less moisture than traditional hardwoods and it resists odor and bacteria! All you have to do is wash them by hand with warm soapy water and dry. And if you want to protect the life of your bamboo products, apply mineral or vegetable oil to the surface after each use.
         The cutting boards are so small they barely take up any space and the holes on the boards allow you to hang them up. If you don't want to put them on your walls they can easily fit into any drawer or between appliances on your counter top or even on a bookshelf. It really is one of the best sets of cutting boards you could buy.

599 Fashion Clothing Review

     If there is one thing I love more than anything it's a bargain. What better thing to find great prices on than awesome, cute clothes? Sometimes it can be tough because one outfit at most places will easily run you between $50 and $100. This doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room for accessories, or extra fun pieces. What if I told you there was a website where everything was $5.99 or less? it's true!
      599Fashion is a fantastic website that has everything from regular sized clothing, to plus size as well as shoes, accessories, jewelry and more. It is warehouse direct shopping with limited quantities and free returns and exchanges. If you like something though, act fast because it just may sell out before you have the chance to pick it up if you wait too long.
     Don't think for one second it is just for women though, they also carry boys and girls kids items AND men's clothing! There really is something for everyone.
     I had the opportunity to choose a few items and I was beyond thrilled with the quality of the pieces I received. I have found some of the best discount clothing pieces I have ever seen!
     I picked out a fantastic teal animal print shirt that was a relatively thick but very soft fabric in a tank top. It had a lot of stretch to it but the best part was the deep V lace panel on the back of the shirt. It gave the shirt a little extra sass without being too revealing and the lace is holding up really well. I have had no issues with the lace tearing or anything yet and I have been really rough with the shirt so far.
     The second piece I picked out was really gorgeous. A simple navy blue dress from Faded Glory with an elastic waistband, keyhole top and long tied bow in the front. The dress hits right around my knees. I love the way it fits but the best part is it is perfect for wearing as is, or with layering. I plan on redesigning this dress with some fantastic fishtail action so that when it drapes it has a lot more movement.
   What's a new outfit without a new pair of shoes? Just in time for summer, what is better than a fantastic pair of t-strap sandals? A gorgeous braided look to the straps covered in a black glittery shine these sandals are sure to catch the eye. They are fitted with a short stacked heel and gold accents leaving these capable of being worn with a multitude of outfit options. They have an adjustable strap to make sure they fit perfectly as well!
        The next piece I picked out was actually my favorite! I have not owned a pair of fun leggings before but I think now I may be hooked. The leggings are a bright shiny blue from ShoSho. I am genuinely surprised that these were available for only 5.99. They are on the sheer side but they are fantastic to wear under dresses and extra long shirts like I planned. They feel incredibly well made and I don't feel there is an issue with them ripping or tearing or running like tights. I am a huge fan and I would love to own several more in different shades!
   Last but not least I found this gorgeous necklace calling my name! It matched the teal leopard print tank top perfectly. With beautiful dark green crystal style drop  beads mixed with thin silver swooping chains it really is a fantastic piece.
     With an adjustable chain to fit as tight or as loose as you like it gives you options to wear it as you feel comfortable. What I didn't realize until after I received it was it actually came with matching earrings as well!
        There really is just about anything you can imagine on this site and I'm sure you would easily be able to find something you like. I absolutely loved all the pieces I picked out and it was all between $25-$30 for everything! Just because it was cheap clothing doesn't mean it was cheaply made!

Merrick Flossies Dental Chews for Dogs Review from

    There are never enough treats on the planet to satisfy the need that Dexter has for them. He is like a little bottomless pit for treats. He can sniff them out from another room and knows exactly where they are and what to do when he wants
one. It's safe to say he has me wrapped around his curly little tail because he always gets what he wants. This is why I have to make sure that the treats I have on hand for him are something that I can feel good about giving him. I prefer that they are healthy or good for him so I know that he is getting only what he needs and nothing he doesn't.
    Not only do I have trouble with the treat monster, I also have trouble with his breath so it is fantastic when I can find a great treat that not only is good for him but good for his breath as well.
    We have tried many dental chews in the past and for the most part I have liked the way they help keep his teeth clean and he likes the way they taste.  I was thrilled though to see the Merrick Flossies Dental chews were natural, grain free and gluten free. Not only do they combat plaque and tartar, but the US sourced ingredients are easily digestible and have a natural chicken flavor that Dexter loves.
  I appreciate that the treats can be snapped in half for smaller dogs like Dex even though he could easily eat the whole bag if he could find a way. The only downside for me is that they smell absolutely offensive to my sense of smell. A point of which I think makes him love them even more as he has already devoured just about the entire bag. I think these are a major hit with Dex and as long as he loves them I am okay with the smell.

The Lego Movie Blu-Ray Giveaway

The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president's powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.

Starring as Emmet's fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC's Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret. a Rafflecopter giveaway

Razor Red Knife Sharpener Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.  
     Being a crafty person encompasses a lot of things in my book. It means I love to create things in different mediums from art projects to meals in the kitchen. For this I am always running my knives and scissors dull. I have a pair of crafting scissors that are so dull they no longer cut through paper, and a kitchen knife that barely makes it through a potato. It's pretty sad really.
      I have tried many ways of sharpening my scissors and knives and the ones I have used previously just never seem to work very well. Maybe it is user error, or maybe the tool isn't right for the job.
      I decided to try out the Razor Red Knife sharpener. When it came in the mail I was surprised at how absolutely compact it was! I thought for sure it would be bigger, but because it is a decent size it is way easier to store.
      The sharpener itself has semi exposed blades that you run your knife or scissors through but when you are not using the tool there is a small handle that sticks out above it so there is less chance of your hand coming down on the blade from the top and injuring yourself which is fantastic because I am clumsy.
      One of the coolest features of the sharpener actually involves the handle. To use the sharpener, you place it on a clean, dry, flat surface and pull the handle down to the side. This can be a little hard to do at first but what it is doing is actually suctioning the base of the sharpener to the work surface so it doesn't slide! I used it on a surface I shouldn't have and it still actually stuck pretty well, but the surface was textured and eventually came unstuck with a little tug.
       I used the sharpener to sharpen my scissors and was pleasantly surprised that after just a few passes through, the blades were sharp enough to glide through thick paper with no issues or snags. It was like magic!
       Not only does this little magical sharpener work on straight blades but it can also sharpen serrated knives and I can probably even use it to sharpen my box cutter blade as well! I am absolutely impressed with how awesome this thing is and I cannot count my lucky stars enough that I have it in my possession now!
       The only downside is there is no way for it to catch the metal "dust" that comes off the sharpened blade but a quick wipe down of the surface and making sure not to do it in an area where it will get every where and you are as good as gold!
      If you are interested in picking one up for yourself check it out on Amazon and come back here and tell me what you think!

Buccaneer Pirate Dog Pet Costumes Review

      ARRRGH! I be spottin' a pirate dog with me good eye! He be small and as vicious as the sea during a wallop of a storm!
     No it's not talk like a pirate day, but I am prepared for that day now that I have my own pirate! By now it should be obvious that I love to play dress up with Dexter. Though sometimes he is not always in the mood as was the case today.
    I love pirates and when I seen the Buccaneer pirate costume I fell in love! According to the measurements Dex needed a medium and it was a little snug around his belly, so if you are worried about that don't be afraid to go a size up if you need to.
       The hat was a little misshapen from being in the bag but nothing a little extra care can't fix, but I love how the bandanna is connected to the hat the way it is because it makes it look like its a separate piece but also not something you have to worry about getting lost or torn off the hat.
      The body of the costume itself was made of a heavy fuzzy material. probably a little too thick for him to be prancing around in it during the summer but will really come in handy in the fall when it's cooler out. The entire front of the coat velcros closed with heavy duty closures so there is no fear of it wearing down or getting ripped or pulled apart while your pet is wearing it. The buttons on the back seem a little loose and I would be afraid they might pop off and get eaten but they haven't yet and I may reinforce them.
An entire collage of his "I'm not having it" attitude.
     The bottom half or the "pants" of the costume is a lighter fabric that isn't actually pants at all but an attached flap that just sits on your dogs back to mimic pants so there is no fear of them going potty on it by accident. It almost makes it appear as if it is a dress. This fabric is more like the traditional cheap costume fake velvet so it may succumb to easily being torn. If that happens I think the costume would still look sharp if it needed to be removed from the jacket if it were damaged.
     If this particular costume isn't your style you can always check out some more dog costumes at Wholesale Halloween Costumes. The prices are absolutely amazing and the quality is awesome!
    If all this talk about pirates has you wanting more why not check out this story about Yogurt the Pirate Dog and get your "AWWW'' on!
