Disney's Frozen The Songs CD Review and ~~Giveaway~~ #Frozen #DisneyMusic



Just in case you don't know me, I am a HUGE Disney Fan and absolutely loved Frozen!!! I was lucky enough to be invited to see parts of Frozen before the movie was even finished!!  I saw the scene with Elsa singing "Let It Go" and even before the movie became the monstrous hit it is now, I knew it was going to be epic!!

My family has also fallen in love with the movie.  Last year for my sons talent show, he sang "In Summer."  I have to say, he was awesome!!


When I was given the chance to review the soundtrack CD, I said but of course!!!  The second it came in the mail, I ran out to my car to start playing it.  The kids and I have listened to it non stop every day in the car.  I can see us wearing it out!!

The CD includes all the great songs from the movie, and goes on sale tomorrow.  You can purchase it through Amazon.  You also have a chance to win a copy here!!  I am giving away two copies of the CD!!  This is a quick giveaway (It ends on Friday,) so get those entries in now!!!

Macy's Boston Tree Search Contest @Macys #Christmas #Spon

**I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere has provided me with compensation for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.**



MACY'S IS LOOKING FOR THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS TREE FOR THEIR DOWNTOWN BOSTON STORE!

I am a Christmas junky!!  It is my favorite holiday, and I look forward to it every year.  Thanksgiving ends, and on Black Friday all my decorations are up and lights are on!!  

It is a tradition for us to get our Christmas tree either Friday or Saturday after turkey day at the latest.  We spend hours searching for that perfect tree!! I make my Husband hold them up so I can look at them from all different angles!!  He also does the needle test, where he stomps the tree a little to see how much falls off!!

For me, I need a tree that doesn't shed a lot, smells nice, is full and sturdy enough to hold all of my precious ornaments, and is at least 6 ft tall.  This is our last years tree, and I think we did a great job with it!!



We buy our trees from a local farmer.  We only have one tree on our property, and it would not make a very good Christmas tree.  I have always wanted to grow my own, and I have tried.  They never survive though :(

Do you have terrific Christmas trees on your property??  Do you have that one tree that is just perfect??  How would you like to make it a star??

Macy's and the City of Boston, are looking for that just right tree to be THE TREE on their Downtown Crossings Marquee for the upcoming 2014 Holiday Season!!  If you are willing to donate your tree, Macy's and the City of Boston will harvest, transport and position the tree, and give you a $1000 Macy's gift card as a big thank you!!

They are looking for only evergreen trees, either fir or spruce, standing 40-50 feet tall and displaying full brush to be considered. It must also have a single trunk from top to bottom and be easily accessed by our harvesting crew.

To enter the contest, take a photo of your perfect tree, and send it along with a 4x6 card with your name, daytime phone number, address, email address, location and height of the tree to:

Macy's Perfect Tree Search, Attn: Macy's 

Special Events, 11 Penn Plaza, 11th Floor, NYC, NY 10001

Hurry and get those entries in.  The contest ends on October 10th!!  I hope one of you gets picked!!!  I can't wait to see the final display!!!

Tips for Setting Up an Online Store #Sponsored

**This post is a sponsored post written by someone else.  I was compensated for this post.**

Setting up an online retail store has gotten easier over the years with many companies offering to create websites, provide hosting services and update the site for a relatively low cost. In fact, there are many options available that let you create your own website using simple-to-use templates. However, unlike the movie “Field of Dreams,” just because you build it does not mean they will come. You must understand how to get search engines to find the site, something known as ranking. You must then get customers to purchase from the site, a process known as conversion. Finally, you want those customers returning to buy again, something called retention. These tips can help you with your ranking, conversion and retention so that your online store is a success.

Be Unique

One of the most important things to remember about websites is that search engines want to return results that are unique. If you are selling products you are producing yourself, that is usually not difficult. However, if you are selling items manufactured by someone else, chances are you will be using product feeds that include pictures and descriptions supplied by the manufacturer. This means your content may be exactly the same as a competitor’s content. Instead of simply placing the manufacturer’s description on the site, rewrite the descriptions in your own words. Consider taking your own photos with the products in use rather than using the ones provided by the manufacturer. The more unique your site, the more likely it is to get found by search engines.

Establish Yourself as an Expert

The internet provides a wide range of places for people to shop and it is difficult for a new company to compete based on price. Therefore, establish yourself as an expert in your industry by writing a high-quality blog post on your industry. Include links to your products to bring customers to your website. Share what knowledge you have regarding your product niche so that customers feel they can come to you when they have specific questions.

SEO Matters

Search engine optimization, or SEO, is critical to success in today’s online world. SEO is an ever-changing process and it is important to keep up with changes to search engine algorithms and adjust your website accordingly. It is harder for product pages to rank as high in search engines than blogs or white papers as product descriptions are normally short, making them less attractive to search engines. Expand the page content by allowing customers to share products and opinions using social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest.

These simple tips can help you grow your online retail store even with the stiff competition that exists today. By developing knowledge of SEO, establishing yourself as an expert and creating a unique, easy-to-load website, you will develop the rankings, conversions and retentions you want when you start an ecommerce store
