People's Choice Award 2012

The People's Choice Award is coming back January 11, 2012 and now is our time to vote and voice our opinions. There are a lot of great shows this year so it will definitely be a hard choice.  Among my favorites are 2 Broke Girls in the New Comedy category, The Vampire Diaries in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy category, and The Secret Circle in the New Drama Category.

2 Broke Girls is a brand new comedy that airs on CBS, Monday nights at 8:30/7:30 c.  This funny new show focuses on two very different girls and their struggles to make it as waitresses at a greasy city diner.  "Sassy, streetwise Max Black works two jobs just to get by, one of which is waiting tables during the night shift at the retro-hip Williamsburg Diner. Sophisticated Caroline Channing is an uptown trust fund princess who's having a run of bad luck that forces her to reluctantly give waitressing a shot. At first, Max sees Caroline as yet another in a long line of inept servers she must cover for, but she's surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max's knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she sees a lucrative future for them, but first they need to raise the start-up money. While they save their tips, they'll stay at the restaurant, working with Oleg, an overly flirtatious Russian cook; Earl, a 75-year-old kool-kat cashier; and Han Lee, the new, eager-to-please owner of the diner. Working together, these two broke girls living in one expensive city might just find the perfect recipe for their big break"   If you have had a chance to tune in to see 2 Broke Girls, give it a try next Monday night!

The Vampire Diaries has been one of my favorite shows for years.  Currently airing their third season, you can catch them on Thursday nights on the CW.  The Vampire Diaries follows two vampire brothers who have both fallen for the same teenage girl Elena.  Although she falls in love when Stephan, the older of the two, she also has feelings from Damon.  There is too much going on for me to explain, but trust me when I say this is a must see show.  Check out more information here:  And catch up on past season by getting Season 1 and 2 DVD's.

The Secret Circle is a brand new drama that follows The Vampire Diaries on the CW.  The Secret Circle follows Cassie Blake and her "friends" as she discovers she is a witch.  They form a Secret Circle that binds their powers and believe that none can do magic without the other.  But after being kidnapped by witch hunters, they discover that Cassie is not as bound to the circle as they thought.  Check out this new drama by the WB.  You will definitely love it!

Don't forget, if you don't vote, your favorite may not win. So head on over to the People's Choice Awards website and vote for your favorite today!

Sea-Band Giveaway

Don’t Let Motion Sickness Ruin Your Appetite For Turkey This Year!
"If your trip over the river and through the woods is especially windy, be sure to pack a pair of Sea-Band Drug-Free Nausea Relief Wristbands to stop motion sickness in its tracks, you’ll be thankful for the nausea relief. The Thanksgiving holiday is the busiest travel period of the year; 94% of travelers reached their destination by car in 2010 (according to AAA).  Don’t let motion sickness ruin your appetite for that long awaited turkey feast! If you or your travel partner are one of the 53 million Americans who suffer from motion sickness, then you’ll want to keep Sea-Bands on hand this Thanksgiving to ensure happy travels. You’ll give thanks for Sea-Band."

Remember a couple of months ago when I shared a great giveaway from Sea-Band with you?  Well, now I've tried it out and I can't wait to share my experience with you.  I have a history of getting car sick, sea sick, and nausea from migraines. And I can tell you just how happy I am with my Sea-Bands.Before a long car ride to the beach this summer, I put on my new Sea-Band Drug Free Nausea Relief Bands.  I got a few teasing jabs from my husband.  But despite his disbelief, I was determined to find out if they really worked.  Approved by the FDA, Sea-Band works by exerting constant, gentle pressure on a point on the inner wrist known as the Pericardium 6 (P6) acupressure point. It brings effective relief within five minutes of being applied and can be used before or after the onset of nausea. The all-natural, drug-free, latex-free Sea-Band does not cause the side-effects often associated with anti-nausea medication such as drowsiness, disorientation, dry mouth or possible interactions with other drugs. It’s safe for children, pregnant women and patients taking prescription medications.  I am happy to report that this was the first car trip that I can remember not getting sick!

Sea-Band Relief Bands are not only great for motion sickness, but also for those suffering from morning sickness, chemotherapy nausea, post-operative nausea, and nausea as a result from a Migraine.   Sea-Band also sells a Ginger Anti-Nausea Gum.  This gum has been such a relief to me.  I have been suffering from severe migraines for the last few months.  Often my migraines bring me to the point of vomiting.   Since I've had the Anti-Nausea Gum from Sea-Band, I have reduced my nausea by 95%!   I will continue to buy their Ginger Gum as long as I suffer from Migraines.   

If you are interested in trying Sea-Band's Relief Bands or Ginger Gum, you can purchase them at their site or from local mass market retail, supermarkets and drug stores in the US or Canada.  Thanks to the generosity of Sea-Band, one of you lucky readers will also win their own Relief Bands and a pack of Ginger Gum.

Goody Good Stuff: Giving Sweets a Good Name Review and Giveaway

Hmmm..Goody Good Stuff

We love sweets. Who doesn't? If you haven't heard of Good Good Stuff before, then you need to check it out. Goody Good Stuff is an all-new natural gummy candy that is made with a plant derived bio-gum technology. It eliminates the need for animal-based gelatin, which is used in most traditional gummy candies. In addition, they have taken out all of the artificial colors and flavors and used only natural fruit and vegetable extracts in their products. They have also removed all the harmful food additives and possible allergens such as gluten to create a truly all natural alternative. Doesn't that sound great! Healthy and Candy in the same sentence!

Goody Good Stuff offers 8 flavors to choose from, including their vegetarian flavors: Strawberry Cream, Cheery Cherries, Tropical Fruit, and Koala Gummies and their vegan flavors: Cola Breeze, Summer Peaches, Sour Mix and Match, and Sour Fruit Salad.

We had the opportunity to try Summer Peaches, Cola breeze, and Koala Gummies. I told my kids that they were going to try this candy for me, not knowing that it was a healthy option. While they liked the Koala Gummies, they really loved the Cola Breeze. They thought they were great. They tasted like cola with a touch of lemon inside. My favorite was Summer peaches. It tasted like biting into a sweet juicy peach on a summer day inside a chewy gummy candy. They all had the consistency that you would expect with other gummy candies.

We will be on the lookout at the store for some other flavors! My kids can't wait to try the Sour Mix and Match and I can't wait to try Strawberry Cream! Why don't you go give them a try! Check them out on Facebook and Twitter

Farm Rich Keeping 'em Happy Review and Giveaway

For over 25 years, Farm Rich has been making products with one goal in mind: keep 'em happy. Whether it's the wholesome ingredients in their products you can feel good about serving your family, or the wide variety of their offerings that appeals to everyone, Farm Rich knows how to keep your family smiling. They have over 17 different products, ranging from cheese sticks to meatballs to breaded mushrooms.

We love cheese in our house, especially my oldest daughter. So when we had the chance to try Farm Rich products, we chose the cheese sticks and the mini quesadillas. You can either bake them or microwave them depending on the amount of time you have. We chose to bake them, because we were home for lunch and had the extra time. They were both very good, but our favorite were the cheese sticks. They had a nice crispy coating with lots of cheese on the inside. My girls devoured them and even asked for them the next day. My oldest said that they were delicious. The cheese sticks are made with 100% real mozzarella cheese and 0g trans fat per serving. The mini quesadillas had plenty of chicken and cheese on them and a nice size for a small lunch or snack.
