Tortuga Rum Cake Review

Our family is proud of our long tradition of bringing you the very finest Caribbean rum cakes and gourmet products. Explore our wide range of Caribbean sauces, flavored coffees, chocolate treats, gifts and collectibles, authentic and original Tortuga Rum Cakes. - and of course, our Tortuga Rum.

A couple of years ago while Ben and I were on a cruise in the Bahamas, we came across Tortuga Rum Cakes.  I had heard of Rum Cakes, but had never had one.


Ben was jumping for joy!!  We bought the Golden Original rum cake, and brought it home to try.


The cake came wrapped in a sealed plastic bag to keep it moist.  Once we got it opened and tried it, wow!!


Instantly you could smell the rum.  All though there is less then .5% alcohol, the flavor is very strong and good.  The cakes are extra moist, and melt on the tongue!!!


Recently Tortuga sent me another flavor of their cakes.  This time I got to try their Key Lime.



  
I must say, I like the Key Lime better then the original.  It has an extra added flavor to it, and it isn't as strong of a run taste.  Ben still likes the original the best.  I guess it all depends on how much you like rum, as to which one is better!!


Tortuga is also known for their Rum Treats, and Rum Coffee.  Those are next on our list of things to try!!


With Fathers Day just around the corner, a Tortuga gift basket would be the perfect gift for Dad!!

Genre:                                                  Animated comedy
Rating:                                                 TBD
U.S. Release date:                                October 5, 2012
Running time:

Voice Cast:                                           Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder
Director:                                               TimBurton
Producers:                                            Tim Burton, Allison Abbate
Executive Producer:                              Don Hahn
Screenplay by:                                      John August
Based on an original idea by:                 Tim Burton                  


From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.

In Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.


NOTES:

?       When Tim Burton originally conceived the idea for “Frankenweenie,” he envisioned it as a full-length, stop-motion animated film. Due to budget constraints, he instead directed it as a live-action short, released in 1984. 
?       “Frankenweenie” follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films “Corpse Bride” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”—both of which were nominated for Academy Awards®.
?       Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film.
?       The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Catherine O’Hara (“Beetlejuice,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), Martin Short (“Mars Attacks!”) and Martin Landau (“Ed Wood,” Sleepy Hollow”).
?       Several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgemeister— were inspired by classic horror films.

#EclosBeauty Review And ~~Giveaway~~

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of éclos Skin Care for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Eclos_StarterKit.jpg


éclos features Apple Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple which have shown tremendous ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin. Plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants combine with the Apple Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and tired skin.

Similar products were once only available from specialty brands at department stores with a high price tag to match. éclos is the first brand to bring this active ingredient to mainstream stores at a fraction of the cost- making beautiful and younger skin available to women everywhere.
I was sent the éclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Starter Kit containing sample sizes of their complete product line. The kit is valued at $19.99!!

In my kit, I received one of each of the following:
•             Facial Cleanser Skin Prep
•             Cellular Activator Face Serum
•             Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream
•             Restorative Eye Cream
•             Instant Radiance Facial Scrub
•             Skin Renewal Clay Mask
•             éclos Terry Cloth Head Band

The first thing I noticed was how great the products smelled!!  I am horrible with descriptions of smells, but Ben describes it as smelling like eucalyptus!!


Ben (after much belly aching) decided to do the beauty treatment with me!!


I started Ben’s beauty treatment by putting the head band on him.  He looked so cute!!  I have to say the headband was a big plus for me.  I have long bangs, and they are always in the way!!  With Ben, it wasn’t 100% needed!!

Photobucket


The one thing that was very confusing for us was that we had no clue what order we were supposed to use the products in.  There were no easy numbers (like #1 first, #2 second etc.) so we went by how the products were listed on the box.  I am not sure if that was right, but that was how we did it for the week.


The first product was the Skin Prep.  This was a nice smooth easy to use product.  Smelt good, and didn’t burn!!!


The second product we used was the Facial Scrub.  The scrub has the gritty feeling (like sand) to help really clean out the pores.  It hurt at first, but it did make our skin feel much better!!


The third product we used was the Moisture Regenerative Cream.  Another smooth, easy to apply cream, which felt great, especially after the scrub.


Now here was the tricky part.  We skipped the fourth and fifth products listed, because those really seemed to need to be applied after all was said and done.  So we went for the Clay Mask.


The mask hardened pretty quickly, and felt like it was pinching the skin to make it more taunt.  At least I hope so!!  After 10 minutes of wearing, we washed it off!!


Our last two steps were to use the Face Serum, and the Eye Cream.  Both felt great going on, and rubbed in easily.


After 6 days of using the products, our skin does look and feel much better.  Neither one of us have any blemishes, and no black heads!! 

Photobucket


Isn't my Hubby cute, and a good sport!!!


It’s hard for me to know if it has helped with aging, but our skin does look much younger than it did.  We both work outside a lot, so we have blotches from the sun.  They seem to have faded quite a bit!!


If you are looking for a new treatment to help make you feel better, give a try!!


I am very happy to be able to give one of you the same kit that I got from éclos Skin Care!!  


Please comment below which product you are most excited to try, then continue with the rafflecopter for even more entries!!

With the release of The Avengers, superhero costumes and toys are in full swing!!!  


Each time we go to Target, my boys beg and beg for another Avengers toy.  They have an Iron man Laser Blaster, and Mask.  Plus they each have a Thor Hammer that they use on each other and me quite often!!!


Douglas had gotten a Sheriff's costume a little while ago, and Ben Jr didn't get one, so when I was offered a chance to review a costume from Anytime Costumes, I had Jr in mind!! 


Anytime Costumes had a great Iron Man Costume, that I knew Ben would love.  We are all huge Iron Man fans (me more Robert Downey Jr!!!)  They have various other costumes as well.





The Costume came with an Iron Man Mask, but Ben preferred the other one because it makes noise and lights up.


When I first saw the mask that came with the costume, I thought "that is going to break in 5 minutes."  I was very wrong.  Weeks later and it is still going strong.  It is made out of a stronger plastic then most costume masks.  I am very impressed!!!


The outfit itself fits great, and has with stood being put on, taken off, put on, taken off etc.


After Ben wore it, Doug had to too.  It was a little big for him, but he will grow into it!!!





I am very impressed with the quality of the costumes, and if you are looking for outfits that last, give Anytime Costumes a try!!!

Sunbelt Bakery Granola Cereal Review And ~~Giveaway~~




 In 1964, we started with a homemade granola recipe that people seemed to love. They loved it because it was wholesome, honest-to-goodness granola, but even more because it was simply delicious, with that special bakery-fresh taste. We were the first to package granola too, so people across the country could enjoy it every morning.

     Today, that tradition continues. Sunbelt® Bakery granola is made right here in the USA in our family bakery, and is delivered to your community weekly. Then a local distributor brings it to your neighborhood store.

     So, with our cereals you get the fresh-tasting crunch, whole-grain goodness and no preservatives freshness that was captured in our original recipe!

We are been big fans of Sunbelt snacks.  Their granola bars are to die for!!  I love their Peanut Butter Chip granola bars, and Ben's favorite is their Apple Cinnamon granola bar.  They are soft and delicious!!!


When I heard that they had come out with Cereal, I was ecstatic!!! 


I was sent all four of their new variety.  Low Fat Granola, Banana Nut, Simple Granola, and Fruit And Nut.




OK, let me just say YUMMY!!!  The Granola had just the right amount of crunch to it.  It was not too hard, and not too soft.  


My favorite out of the cereals was the Banana nut.  It had whole chunks of dried bananas!!!!


The Low Fat Granola has raisins and almonds, and the Fruit and Nut has dates and almonds.  Soooo good!!!


Each box sells for $2.79.  That is an awesome price for a 16 oz box of cereal.  


If you are looking for a good wholesome cereal, make sure you give Sunbelt a try!!


You can follow Sunbelt on Facebook and Twitter to keep up on the latest news!!


The good folks at Sunbelt are offering one of my readers a set of all four cereals to try for themselves!!!  Pretty cool huh!!!

Ssh-oes Review




Ssh-oes are comfortable heels specifically engineered and designed to not make noise when you walk.  You know that “click-y” noise your heels make every time you take a step in heels? Well, ssh-oes don’t make that noise!

Ssh-oes is the only company in the world that makes quiet heels. The ssh-oes have a non-slip, sound absorbing rubber outsole and a patent pending noise reducing heel lift so, they do not make as much noise when you walk. Our patent pending heel lift also prevents against wear and tear and acts as a shock absorber to make the ssh-oe even more comfortable.

In addition to not making noise, they are incredibly comfortable! They are cushioned with memory foam and have a lycra and leather lining to make the shoe as blister free as possible. Ssh-oes are fit tested on real sized women so you're getting something that you can actually wear and enjoy without all the pain usually associated with heels.

Cheers :)

I will be the first to admit.  I am not a girly girl.  I do not own 2000+ pairs of shoes, or 800+ handbags.  I own about 5 pairs of shoes, and 3 purses.  My Husband has more pairs of shoes then I do!!!!


Recently when I was sent to NYC for the premiere of The Avengers, I got to get all dressed up and feel like a girl!!  It was terrific!!


Since then, I have found that I like to get dressed up more.  I am even wearing heels (and not falling on my face!!)


When Mary from Ssh-oes sent me a fun pair of heels, I was in heaven.  I was sent the Black Suede Kate Bootie.






When I first opened the box, I was scared.  These were the largest heels I had ever owned.  Oh are they soft.  I couldn't help but keep rubbing them.  Then I did it.  I gained enough courage to try them on.  They are just the right fit.  


The all time kicker was that I could actually walk in them!!!  I couldn't believe it!!!  On top of the walking, they are actually comfortable!!  I was so proud of myself!!


These are definitely a well made pair of shoes!!


Mary has quite a few other styles to choose from, and she will be adding more soon.


Take a look at Ssh-oes.  You won't be disappointed!!


You can also keep up with new Ssh-oes news by following them on Facebook and Twitter!!

Shabby Apple Dress Review



A return to what dresses were always meant to be — a one-piece outfit. No need to add anything...no tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!).

We started Shabby Apple because we saw a need in women’s fashion that was not being met. A need to make women feel feminine and beautiful for what they wear, not what they bare. We offer flirty, stylish dresses a woman can wear just as comfortably in the office, at a family dinner, or on a date. Shabby Apple is a fashion company for women, by women, and of women.

Because serving women and families is a core value at Shabby Apple, we devote a certain percentage of our net proceeds to charitable causes serving women and children.

I am an old soul.  I am not the kind of person to dress with the newest trends.  Jeans and T-shirts are my usual attire.  When I dress up, I try to stay with some what flattering outfits with simple designs.  


When I saw some of the dresses at Shabby Apple, I knew that was a store for me!!!


I was given the chance to pick any dress I wanted, and this was what I picked.


Aquamarine Satin Side Saddle Dress-





Oh my is the dress gorgeous!!!  The dress feels great against your skin.  Cool and soft.  It comes down to just below my knees, which makes me the most comfortable.  It is easy to move around in, and just makes me feel great!!


The only thing I do not like about the dress is the tightness of the sleeves.  Unless you have stick arms, they are not very comfortable. Luckily my sister loves to sew, so she is going to adjust it for me!!


Shabby Apple has a wide variety of Dresses, Skirts and Blouses for those old souls like myself.  Check them out, you just may find something truly you, and realize you may be older then you think!!  lol  

You can follow Shabby Apple on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with their latest promotions and announcements!!

Seneca Farms Oatmeal And Fruit Review And ~~Giveaway~~


Introducing Seneca's new Oatmeal & Fruit cups. Made with real fruit, our Oatmeal & Fruit cups are available as two-pack sleeves or convenient single serve cups.

Ready to go nutrition – no water or milk required – just heat and eat! What’s not to love!

What is a better breakfast food then Oatmeal??  It can warm your tummy on those cold winter days.  To me it is definitely a comfort food!!


We have tried many different types of oatmeal over the years.  The one thing I don't like is that with most oatmeal's, you have to heat them with boiling water.  When you have two hungry kids, boiling water is never a good idea.


With Seneca Farms Oatmeal and Fruit, all you have to do is microwave the oatmeal!!  I can now monitor how hot I make the oatmeal!!  Very ideal for the kids!!


The oatmeal also tastes soooo good!!!  We were sent the Vanilla Peach and Apple Cinnamon!!








Personally my favorite was the Vanilla Peach.  I never would have thought to combine the two flavors with oatmeal, but wow is that good.  It had the perfect combination of Vanilla and Peach.  It made me feel like I was eating a heavenly desert!!!


Ben and the boys loved the Apple Cinnamon better.  They are huge apple fans, and they said that the oatmeal was full of apple flavor.  A lot of the time when something is apple cinnamon, the cinnamon over powers.  Not in this case.  I would have liked to have tried the oatmeal, but they ate it all before I could get my hands on it!!!


If you are looking for a new twist on breakfast, give Seneca's Oatmeal and Fruit a try!!!


I am very lucky to be able to give one of you the chance right now to try it.  You will get the same two 2 packs that I got!!

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. From Disney and Pixar, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida(voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition and challenges destiny to change her fate.

“Brave” follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources – including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers – to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late, discovering the meaning of true bravery.

Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humor that audiences of all ages around the world have come to eagerly expect. The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

T-Mobile has some terrific options for what ever you need.


Their family plans start at just $49.99 with unlimited data!!  In this day and age where everyone needs to be in constant contact with email, Facebook and Twitter, unlimited Data is a must.  When I was interviewing Tom Hiddleston in New York last month, I needed to be able to tweet like a mad women.  I was on my phone soooo much, that if I didn't have unlimited data, I would have spent $100's of dollars just in that one hour.


One of my favorite plans with T-Mobile is their $50 a month, Unlimited Talk, Text, and Web plan with NO CONTRACT!!!  I have had plans with contracts in the past, and I hate being forced to sign a 2+ year commitment.  I want to be able to choose what I want, when I want!!  With this plan, you get to decide how long you keep it!!


Now if you haven't made it into the high tech world of smart phones, and just want a plan that allows you to talk, T-Mobile has those for you as well.  Their cheapest just talk plan with 500 minutes starts at just $34.99.

In order to stay on top of all this, people have to manage daily incoming paper mail, an array of online usernames and passwords, and websites in order to access important account information and take action. Manilla seamlessly retrieves all your account information – current balances, previous payments, upcoming bills due – and stores it for you in one secure place. Most importantly, you need only one password to view, manage and organize it all.
