MIRROR, MIRROR REVIEW


I had the wonderful opportunity to go see "Mirror-Mirror" last Thursday with my daughter, and three granddaughters. Although we loved the movie it just wasn't what we expected. To me it was a totally different movie. There were no seven little men with cute little names such as Doc, Sneezy, Dopey, or Sleepy and no Hi Ho, Hi Ho it's off to work we go... and sweet music from Snow White singing to the birds and them tweeting in song singing back, and absolutely no whistling while she worked. Instead, Snow White was turned into a pirate looking swash buckling, sword fighting the dragon that turned out to be the wicked queen's slave that did her bidding. WHEW! One thing that didn't change was the wicked queen was still an egotistical witch.

Don't get me wrong I did love the movie because I love Julia Roberts for one, and the dwarfs I have seen before in other movies like the series "Charmed" for example.    The movie in its entirety was funny (not hysterical), but a cute funny.  My granddaughters loved it too.  We did have a very nice time.  Although it wasn't in 3D it sure looked like it to me.  The Queen's butler was totally cool & funny.  To me it was like a Snow White from the twentieth century.  The part about the prince's character having a spell put on him... well, you check it all out.  Don't want to give it all away.  Maybe the kids thought it was funny, but well... maybe adults just don't get it, but it certainly had its moments.  LOL 

All in all it is a kid's movie, but not the small children.  I really don't think they would understand the concept.  Older children maybe nine or ten and up would love the movie, and keep them entertained with the music as well.  So, go ahead mom and dad take the kids out for a lovely afternoon of fun and popcorn.  You won't be bored, but don't be disappointed thinking you'll see Snow-White.  It's a modern day fairy tale with a little twist of rock & roll.  

*My review has been changed due to a comment that made me see my errors and I totally agree. I apologize if I spoiled anything for anyone.  Truly you should see this movie.  It was too, too, too cute!  Julia Roberts was her fantastic self!!!  Dear Anonymous:  I reviewed my own review, and I have heeded your advice. I guess I got over zealous, and wanted to tell all. I apologize to those who already read my review before, but it has since been revised.

Disclaimer: I was given tickets to see the movie to do a review, and share my honest opinion with my readers.  Anything else was at my own expense.

BodyMind WeightLoss Review/Give-Away Ends 4.12

Improving Your Self Image is a key to Improving Your Self!

Last week I told you all about BodyMind Weight Loss I downloaded, and the message it puts across to help you lose weight.  I have been listening to these every day now for a week, and personally not only has it helped me with keeping my mind active & watching my eating habits, but has also been quite soothing as far as my nerves are concerned.  These tips stick in my head, but it reminds me that every day when I shop what to look for.  When I go out to eat... how I should order.  New habits to be formed. 

Today's weight begone is going to be a bit different, and I would not only like to reiterate what I told you about this product that I've been using, but BodyMind Weight Loss would like to offer the same program to one of my readers.  (You may enter below on Rafflecopter).

Two weeks ago I weighed in at 260 lbs, and today I am...  (drum roll please cuz Mama broke the ice - woo hoo) 250 lbs. exactly!  Still watching my portions & the exercises I told you about.

BodyMind Weight Loss Hypnosis Pack is a set of 3 professionally scripted and recorded self-hypnosis sessions designed to manage and maintain weight loss, healthy eating, and exercise.  Used regularly, these recordings will naturally promote healthy habits and natural, effortless weight loss.  BodyMind Weight Loss was sent to me, and as far as I'm concerned somebody up there likes me.  Actually, what they are are recordings to help you one: relax talking to you in such a soothing voice, and explains to you about your body to help you get it ready for your weight loss journey.  It almost reminded me as a subliminal messaging.  So, let me tell you briefly what it is.  You get four files along with instructions:
  • Instructions
  • 1st recording is for the first week, "Eating Healthy", and you listen to it once a day.  It's very soothing
  • 2nd recording is for the second week, "Naturally slim", and then you listen to that once a day, and also the first recording you listen to it once this week.
  • 3rd recording/third week, "Fitness Motivation".  In the third week you listen to this recording every day, and you listen to the other two once this week.
  • The 4th week what you do is listen to each of the recordings once.  
  • Then after the fourth week you listen to each recording once a month.
And naturally we do not listen to these recordings while driving or doing something strenuous that needs your full attention.  So, I'm going to use these recordings because as far as I'm concern I'm using all the help offered to me.  OH YES!  Somebody up there likes me.  As they say when one door closes another one opens.

Perplexus "Original" & the"Rookie" Review/Give-Away Ends 4.10


Back in November, 2011 my daughter and her children and I went down to Navy Pier to see the Chi-Town's Chicago Toy Game Fair at their booth at Navy Pier.  It was a blast.  Every new toy that was going to be out on the market was there, and I'll tell you some were like other toys I've seen, but some were completely amazing.  For example we came up to the Perplexus Booth where they had their "Original" Perplexus ball and everyone wanted to try them even my granddaughter and daughter took a shot.  Look at these two.

Hmmmmm


Perplexus has send me the "Original" for 6 yrs. & up & the "Rookie" (smaller) for 4 yrs., and up, and so I'm going to tell you all about them in a sec & even a brief demonstration, but I do want to say that Perplexus has offered to give one of my readers the choice of either the "Original" or the "Rookie" for your to keep. Woo Hoo! You're gonna love this toy. Okay, I'll tell you. It kept my husband and I busy for at least 2 hours laughing our butts off! LOL


And now from my beautiful girls a brief demonstration, and my youngest son (their dad) trying to get in on the action! He'll never grow up! LOL

So,here's a brief description from their website:  Perplexus is a maze game where players maneuver a small marble around challenging barriers inside a transparent sphere. Unlike traditional flat-surface mazes that are composed of one path, PERPLEXUS houses various challenging tracks with 100 barriers providing a frustrating three-dimensional experience.

"The Rookie"

 And how about your chance now.  Enter here, and winner gets their choice!

GOLF SHIRT HERO REVIEW


Okay, I'm sorry the devil made me do it.  I saw Golf Shirt Hero, and I thought of Foreigner in "Juke Box Hero"!  Soooooooooooo it could happen!  Why not GOLF SHIRT HERO WITH STARS IN HIS EYES!  LOL  Okay, well if you think that is funny go to Golfshirthero.com for some real funny golf shirts for the man in your life that hits that poor defenseless little ball all over the golf course! First let me say these shirts are not those cheap-o shirts that you get on the rack at the Dollar Store.  They are 100% Preshrunk cotton.  Really good material and I love the feel.  These shirts were made to last (not just to make you laugh ~snicker~).  For example:

A musician wearing a golf shirt - LOL
This is my SIL he's the golfer in the family, and I cannot wait to give him his new shirt!

He's going to love it, and now I have a place to go next Christmas and his birthday!  Just check out a couple of these.


My SIL is definitely getting this one next time!
Cool, huh and they have many more.  Not only do they guarantee their product they have...
                         LIGHTNING FAST SHIPPING!

Other t-shirt companies make you wait up to 2 weeks before they even ship your shirts! They usually process orders within 24 hours of receipt.  However, occasionally a shirt may be temporarily out of stock and might not ship out right away. In which case it will ship as soon as it is back in stock (usually after a couple of days), and if you need your shirt FAST or by a certain date, email them to check which shipping option to choose. So, why don't you drop by, and check them out.  I have to go see what else they got. Too funny!  


Here's their guarantee:  

Guarantee

We are committed to providing you with only the highest quality products and service. When your order arrives if your shirts don't fit properly, please contact us within 24 hours to exchange them for the correct size. If you find that a shirt is damaged or unsatisfactory, please contact us for a refund or replacement within 72 hours of receiving your order.  If for ANY reason, you are not completely satisfied with your order, contact our customer service dept. and we will make it right for you. Guaranteed!

What more can you ask for!

*I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
