Ji Ga Zo Puzzle Review

Image
The new revolution in puzzles is now here. With Ji Ga Zo Puzzle you are able to take your face and apply it to a puzzle. But this is not an ordinary puzzle. You are actually building the puzzle from scratch. What you do is you get a CD that you load onto your computer and you upload a picture of your choice. Now this part to me is tricking because you have to choose a picture that would turn out. You don't want anything with to much going on. The picture I used was a simple head shot of my daughter. I couldn't get any other picture to turn out just right.

Now after you get your picture uploaded you simple print out a key that has different shapes and symbols on it. From there you match the shaded interlocking pieces to build your custom puzzle. The puzzle is very time consuming. I loved the idea of it, but it was harder to keep my kids attention with it. The age is from 8 and up, but I think it may be suitable for a higher age group. While making the puzzle it did come to mind,…

Another Family Game Night! Hasbro Review/Giveaway

Image
If you are like me you are always on the lookout for ways to keep your family entertained and at the same time being able to spend time together.  I’m a big fan of Hasbro games, because they strive to do just that. I was thrilled when asked if I would like to review Scrabble Flash. I have never been big on Scrabble, because I’m the world worst when it comes to spelling. I have found with Scrabble Flash it’s more than that. With Scrabble Flash, not only is there a spelling aspect to the game it’s also a challenge within a challenge. I can remember sitting for hours playing Scrabble with my family, and now it seems impossible to keep my children’s attention. With Scrabble Flash I don’t have that problem. Like the original Scrabble you are trying to compose words, but the trick is you only have five letters and a short amount of time to come up with the word.  This game brings the excitement to Scrabble that younger kids might not find in the regular Scrabble board game. If you are looki…

Smart Girls Like To Be Pampered Too!

Image
When I’m at home with my daughter and the weather outside is bad, I like to find things to do with her around the house to keep her busy. I know all kids love to watch TV, and movies I don’t believe they should spend the whole day doing so. I believe that a child’s mind can be as creative as you want it to be. I think doing crafts and such with my daughter expands and enriches her mind in so many ways. I recently came across SmartLab Toys and was intrigued with what I saw.  Although they are called Smart Lab Toys this company goes way beyond the normal stereotype.  I came across the SmartLab Sweet Spa, and I knew my daughter would love this kit. It pulls your child in with the things they love. My daughter is a true diva girly girl. She loves to have spa days and be pampered. With the Sweet Spa lab kit, it gives her the chance to be pampered, but also learn how these products are made, and what science is behind it. A little bit about the All-Natural Spa Lab

Weekend Fun on Mars!

Image
This weekend is going to be a fun one! As you may know my family is a big fan of Disney, and I love to take my girls to see the latest Disney movie! I think this movie is going to be so much fun for me and the girls. It's going to show how outsiders see us Moms and how important and valuable we are to a society. Is there anything about you, that you think your kids could live without? I know mine could live without me telling them to clean their rooms. I would love to hear what you think. Also will you be seeing this movie this weekend? It will be in theaters March 11th! If you love the trailer to Mars Needs Moms, please like them on FaceBook: Mars Needs Moms
A little bit about the movie: Based on the book by: Berkeley Breathed Take out the trash, eat your broccoli—who needs moms, anyway?  Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when she’s nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. Produced by the team behind …

Dive into the warmer weather with this season Sexiest Swim wear from Express

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

 It’ is getting close to the warmer seasons and as we get close everyone is preparing their bodies for the perfect swim suits. Shopping for a bathing suit doesn’t have to be painful or embarrassing if you already know what you have in mind. One way that I prepare myself is to know what looks best on my body. One of the biggest things for me is to know my size; I know that I wear a different size on top then bottom. Express’s new spring women's swimwear line gives you the availability to choose different size for each piece. So for example I have a Farley small chest so I would go with a Pattern top with no padding strapless or a halter strap.
As I was looking hrough Express bikinis I came across one I loved. It has a pattern top with a removable halter strap, along with low rise bikini bottom to show off my hips! If you love Express as much as I do, sign up for the Express e-ma…

A night at the Show with a Princess

Image
This past weekend we took my daughter to see Disney’s Princess Classics on Ice, and she absolutely loved it! Disney Princess Classics takes you through the Princess story of how each princess meets their prince Charming. It takes you back to all the classics Malian, Jasmine, Aerial, Aura, Snow White, Bell, and Cinderella.
 I know that my daughter has seen every princess movie and can sing along with every song, but it amazed me how she knew what each scene was. She knew when Aura pricked her finger that she slept until her prince kissed her, she knew when the beast was stabbed by Gaston he would turn into a prince. She even knew that when the Witch found snow white that she would eat the apple and fall asleep. She talked me through every part of the show.  I just have to say this show was wonderful, they got each princesses story across in such a short time. The main focus was on Cinderella though, I can’t complain because she has always been one of my favorites. The only complaint I do…
