LootCrate November!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by LootCrate  for the review  free of charge.****

One of the worst things to me is going out to check the mail and finding nothing but bills, What fun is that? So I can extra excited when the 19th of the month rolls around because I know my LootCrate box will be shipping out and I can't wait to see what is in it. Novembers theme is "Battle- Pirates VS Ninjas" , And this months box is extra special because they made the box everything came in a playable battle field by including cut outs and some small paper fighters you use on the board. What came in this months box? Read below to see what all came in the box.





This months box included a number of Pirate and Ninja themed items including: Pirate vs. Ninja shirts, Assasin's Creed IV Unity coin with velvet pouch, A mystery Mega Man Mini Helmet (You could receive either a Brown, Blue, Green or Red helmet), A Halo drop ship mini figure, A Street Fighter Headband, the Monthly collectable pin along with a 50% off code for a steam game called Lichdom Battlemage and a free download of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. If you are a fan of LootCrate you know that there is a monthly Mega crate where one lucky person receives a giant crate with goods that are epic so to speak, this month they were giving away a Nintendo DS, a Wii U and games to go along with them not only did they do that but 20 other lucky people received a Wii U as well. I enjoyed the items that came in this package my favorite was the coin and the shirt because of how creative the design is. I've never received any items in the boxes I've received that were not high quality or well made, everything is sturdy and long lasting.

 



I personally think that LootCrate would make a great gift for any comic, video game, or cartoon lover in your family. LootCrate ships to the US,Canada,The United Kingdom and Australia. Loot Crate is $13.37 a month [plus s&h] the site guarantees $30+ worth of goodies in your box You can sign up for just a one time box or you can sign up for 6 months to a years worth of boxes & you can use the code “LunaMoon10” you will receive 10% off of your purchase price. What do you think might be in Next months box?

Reddit Scavenger Hunt

Today I get to participate in something special, I get to participate in the first ever world wide Reddit Scavenger Hunt. A little over a month and a half ago Reddit posted a sign up sheet for help putting together a Scavenger Hunt, one person from each of the 50 states, 1 person from Canada and 5 people from other countries would be selected to receive a package of goods to hide in their home town along with a gift to keep for themselves. I was selected to hide the box for the Phoenix,AZ area and I am excited to get out there and hide the box.

What's in the box? I wasn't allowed to peek inside of the box I will be hiding but I can share with you what I received in my gift box and I can say that the box I am hiding is much heavier than the gift box I received. Below are some photos of the box and what was in it:





I received a T-shirt, two stickers, a magnet, a plush toy, a cut out kitty and some great fabric plus the box it all came in came be transformed into a kitty house or small dog house. My cat has been in an out of the box and my kids like playing with the box too so that is a double win. I will be heading out at 10:30AM MST to hide the box and post clues on reddit for someone in my community to follow and find the box I hide. I will post an update if that person chooses to share photos of what was in their box.





Thank you for reading!

HoneyBaked Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by HoneyBaked for the review free of charge.****


What is going to be on your table this Thanksgiving? If you are looking for a faster and delicious way to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner without having to spend all day in the kitchen? HoneyBaked has the solution for you and has a number of sides and delicious meat to offer you for the holidays. If you haven't tried their HoneyBaked sliced & glazed turkey breast then you are missing out.

 



 I recently received a gift card to visit my local HoneyBaked store located at 4635 E Cactus Rd
Phoenix, AZ 85032. When I visited it was a quite morning just before noon and the store looked clean, welcoming and smelled great all of the displays were well put together and the way everything was set up really made you look around at everything they had to offer. Half of the store was to purchase their products such as Turkey and Sweet potatoes and the other half is a Cafe where you can buy lunch.






I picked up the following items: HoneyBaked sliced & glazed turkey breast, Honey baked ham slices, Sweet Potato Soufflé, Green Bean Casserole, Turkey Gravy, Rolls, and for dessert we bought a pumpkin roll. We were going to go with the traditional Pumpkin pie but the store was sold out so we went with a sweet and similar alternative. The products we bought was enough to happily fill six adults and two children, plus we had some left overs. The food was delicious, normally I can cook a pretty decent Thanksgiving turkey but mine is nothing compared to the turkey Honeybaked sells, it is plump, juicy, sweet and crunchy around the edges it has the perfect texture to it as does the delicious ham. The Green Bean Casserole has a nice little twist and has small pieces of carrots in it which I found refreshing, and the Sweet Potato Soufflé was sweet but not overly sweet I would prefer eating this over regular sweet potatoes. My family and I enjoyed HoneyBaked and we have began discussing buying their products for family get togethers, the products are fairly prices and fill quite a few people plus the left overs still taste wonderful the next day and make great left over Thanksgiving sandwhiches. What more could you ask for? Head over to their website to see if there is a HoneyBaked store near you if not you could always order online.

From now until 1/11/15 you can enter to win a $25,000 HoneyBaked Kitchen Makeover when you buy a Ham and Turkey Breast bundle.

Check out this limited time coupon for $7.00 off any Sliced and Glazed Whole Turkey and 4lb Quarter Ham (Or Larger) from HoneyBaked Ham to help you make your holiday dinner easy and delicious!  (Offer Valid at Participating Retail Locations: Forestville, Silver Spring, Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Fields Ertel, Beechmont, Kenwood, Colerain, Florence, Salem, Centerville, Sawmill Road, McNaughten, Louisville, Lexington, Fern Creek, Glendale, Paradise Valley, Superstition, Tucson East, Tucson North, Overland Park, Independence, Barry Road, Norristown, Parma, Willoughby, Rocky River, Strongsville, Maple Heights, Canton, Fairlawn and Chapel Hill.)

Bolder Band Review & Giveaway!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Bolder Band for the review & giveaway free of charge.****



I've been slowly getting back into working out, yoga and other things to get me into better shape. While on my stationary bike I realized I needed something to keep the sweat out of my eyes, How did I realize this? After being on my bike I went to use my jump rope and on the first jump I got a bead of sweat in my eye, it stung badly. I know what you are thinking, sweat is nasty why are you talking about it? Sweating is a natural part of working out but it doesn't have to be a big bother when you have a proper head band.





I came across a site called Bolder Band that had a large selection of beautiful headbands,and I was lucky enough to receive one for review! Above you will see the two headbands I was sent from Bolder Band, the Polka Dot band is for my review and the tie dye band is for a giveaway! The band is stretchy and covers a large portion of my head, the nice thing about this band is not only does it absorb the sweat while I am working out but it also keeps the hair out of my face. The band is soft and fits comfortably, I don't have to worry about it slipping off or needed to be adjusted while in the middle of my work out. After using the band I like to wash it because who wants to put a band back on the was all sweaty? and it washed well with my other clothing, it is still stretchy yet firm and soft as can be. I don't see having to replace this band for some time to come which is wonderful. Bolder Band has fast and friendly customer service. Please stop by their website to view the lovely designs they have to offer you.





Prize Alert:
One lucky winner is going to receive the Tie Dye band shown above. This giveaway is open World Wide.

Ornaments With Love Reivew!

 ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Ornaments With Love for the review free of charge.****


In less than two months Christmas will be here! In twenty days I will be putting up my Christmas tree which means it is time to pull out all of the tree decorations. Each year I like to add at least two new ornaments to my tree, one for each of my kids that has their name and the year on it which has been a tradition since their first Christmas. I received the wonderful opportunity to work with Ornaments With Love again this year on a review of their ornaments.





I was able to pick out one ornament for each of my kids, I decided on the My Little Pony Pinkie Pie ornament for my daughter and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Leonardo ornament for my son. Each ornament will have the name and date hand drawn on by one of the staff members before your ornament ships, typically it takes 1-2 days to process the order and most orders will arrive within 2-4 days after that so you are looking at about a week in total until you receive your ornament which is a great speedy for a custom ornament. My kids love these ornaments and the best part is they aren't glass so if they want to take a look at them they can hold them without me worrying they are going to end up broken.





Ornaments with love offers a large selection of ornaments and their navigation bar makes it easy to find the specific type of ornament you are looking for. They offer ornaments for Babies first Christmas, Teens who just received their learners permit for driving, Traveling related ornaments, pet and family ornaments plus more all at affordable prices! My favorite place to shop for my Christmas ornaments is Ornaments with Love when I am looking for something personalized because it helps me avoid the lines and hassle at the store. Their customer service is always friendly and fast to reply, head over to their website to check out what they have to offer you!

Aurorae Yoga Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Aurorae Yoga for the review free of charge.****




Lately I've been feeling ill part of that is because I stopped working out and went back to bad eating habits which has been messing with my blood pressure. I've started to get back into working out and I enjoy doing it because it helps me relax and helps with my back pain since I stretch everything out, while I work out I like to light candles because it helps me relax. A wonderful company I have my yoga mat from called Aurorae Yoga  has started to make and sell candles, when I heard the news I couldn't have been more excited.





For a reviews I was sent one blue Micro-Fiber Yoga full length towel and 100% Soy Wax Pledge Candle in the scent Passion Raspberry. I have a slight dislike of Micro-Fiber fabrics, it isn't a phobia but it is a touch thing but I figured I would give the towel a try just in case it was different. The towel was very soft when I pulled it out of the package and quite fluffy, I noticed after I washed it that it became a little clumpy and clung to everything due to static which is when I realized it needed to be washed by itself. If you wash it alone and put it on a low dry tumble it is fluffy and soft once again. The towel is the same length and size of the yoga mat, so you can use the towel as a clean yoga surface if you are in need or can just use it to wipe off your mat. The candle smells heavenly I loved it and it burned for a long time. I would purchase more of the candles because it was clean, didn't smell when it was blown out and burned for hours without melting down too far. I've burned the candle at least four different days for 2-6 hours each and still have a large portion of my candle left so I would say that is pretty good.



 Aurorae Yoga also sells Yoga Mats, Bags, Socks and more all at reasonable prices! Head over to their website today to see what they have to offer. Do you have a yoga lover in your life? Why not buy them some amazing candles or yoga socks for Christmas?
