Bride of Fae Release Day Party - July 31

Another fun book release party is waiting for you to join! Let them know you are joining today and then enter to win a $10 Amazon gift card!

Bride of Fae
A love more powerful than magic or time. Beverly Bratton has a safe, mundane life. No drama. No magic. Since her parents died, she’s cared for her little sister Marion and worked at the Tragic Fall Inn. When a fairy’s charm sends Beverly a hundred years into the past–and into the path of a banished fairy prince–nothing will ever be mundane or safe again. The regent of the Dumnos fae is turning the court from light to dark, and there's nothing the rightful king, Prince Dandelion, can do about it. The mystical coronation cup which he needs to become king has fallen into human hands. When he meets a human woman with access to the cup, everything changes. Beverly is fascinating as well as useful–but of course Dandelion doesn’t love her. Love for a fairy is rare. Love with a human, impossible. But when Beverly and Dandelion are thrown together in a battle against both wyrd and fae, they learn that in Dumnos the impossible happens every day.

Have you always dreamed of a beautiful set of pearls? I love a beautiful set of pearls but I also love a great deal on them also. What more could you ask for? offers affordable pearls for everyone. Up to 80% of the retail value. They make their site easy to navigate and shipping is fast. Ground shipping in the US is free, the only thing I find is the shipping is a bit pricey for Canada at $35. They do offer a 90 money-back guarantee if for any reason you are not satisfied.
To find what you are looking for you can shop by bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings, men's and more. Also they offer tons of different pearl types to choose from - Freshwater, Akoya, Tahitian, Golden South Sea, White South Sea, Exotic Natural, and also a Bridal collection.
I recently had the opportunity to review a nice Freshwater Pearl Necklace from I was very impressed with the quality of the pearls and how they looked and felt. I will admit to having some difficulty figuring out the clasp but once I figured it out, I am very impressed as I can't see it ever coming loose when wearing the pearls.

I have had numerous compliments and my hubby thought they were very nice. Overall a great experience with my new pearl necklace. My daughter has even spoken for them but I don't think mommy wants to give them up just yet. Maybe when she turns 16!

Enter to win your very own PearlParadise freshwater pearl necklace similar to the one above. Previous winners will not be eligible. Please read the Terms below. Thanks and Good Luck.

Caillou's Mysteries and Adventures DVD Review

My daughter loves Caillou since she was really young. She was really excited when we recently had the opportunity to check out the new DVD called Cailloui's Mysteries and Adventures.
Follow Caillou through 12 adventures and special DVD features. This DVD includes 4 episodes and special features for the computer - printable colouring pages, game and messages to the parents.

In Caillou The Detective, Caillou searches for Gilbert when he goes missing, retraces his steps to find his missing toy car, and plays an adventurous game of hide-and-seek with his friends.

In Caillou The Brave, Caillou slides down the water slide for the very first time, braves a thunderstorm by pretending to be a captain of a ship, and helps Rosie overcome her fear of bugs.

In Caillou To The Rescue, Caillou helps Rosie fall asleep with a bedtime story, pretends to be a fireman and saves the town, and rescues missing cars as a tow truck driver.

In Captain Caillou, Caillou sails his new toy boat around the pond with his grandfather and goes to the airport with his father to watch the planes take off.

Each Caillou show includes learning elements and throughout this DVD your child learns about - overcoming fear, helping others, patience and creativity.

My daughter loved the videos and was laughing and copying Caillou with some of his sayings. 'I am a great detective, my name is Caillou". She also loved printing off pictures to colour afterwards. This was a fun DVD and kept my daughter interested from beginning to end.

How to Make the Summer Road Trip Fun for Kids

We love taking road trips, sometimes to the closest water park or a museum. With summer here we take more road trips as there are some many great activities and events going on. This summer, as you make plans to pack up the car and kids, keep these tips in mind for making the road trip as memorable as possible!
1)      Stock up on snacks: Pack a small cooler and load cup holders with plenty of water and healthy classics like trail mix, granola bars, almonds and fruit.

2)      Take your time: Plan to make plenty of stops and take advantage of beautiful vistas along the way. It will give the kids (and you) a chance to re-energize.

3)      Play games: Car games are lots of fun for the whole family. Get the kids excited about their surroundings and start a great conversation.

4)      Plug it in: iPods and iPads are a great way to wind down the crowd and give the kids a chance to have some quiet time to themselves.

5)      Map it: Plan your route in advance to ensure you don’t miss key stops but make the journey as smooth as possible. Be sure to have maps and guide books close at hand in seat pockets.

6)      It’s Showtime: Reserve a special movie for later in the trip. It’s wise to have a surprise movie or game for kids to enjoy when they are running out of patience.

7)      Climate control: Certain car models like the Ford Edge allow for single-zone manual air conditioning so passengers can adjust for a personalized temperature. This is a big part of an enjoyable trip.

8)      Get cozy: Don’t forget extra blankets and pillows (and stuffed animals) for those who want to nap along the way.

9)      Listen up: Stock up on kid and adult friendly music to keep everyone entertained.

10)   Belt it out: A road trip is the perfect time to teach your kids your favourite tunes! Singing is a mainstay for uniting the team and keeping spirits high en route. Have fun and take lots of pictures!

Online Shopping Tips for the Summer

Every fashionista knows that the best shopping deals are found online. No need to pound the proverbial pavement looking for the biggest saves on all of the things you want to buy; just grab your laptop and your credit card. In addition to being more convenient and more economical, shopping online also gives you the ability to compare prices from many different sellers at once. For more tips on how to be stylish and thrifty, keep reading.

Set a spending limit for yourself. First things first; make sure you put a cap on how much you plan to spend before you open the web browser. Getting carried away on a virtual shopping spree is just as easy as doing it in person. Especially when you’re sifting through so many great “deals,” it can be easy to forget how much you’re racking up on your credit cards.

Sign up for sale alerts. This is like having a personal shopper without having to pay for one. If you find an online retailer that you really love, join their email list so that you know when virtual shopping sales take place. In some cases, you can even get sale alerts for a particular item so that you know when the price has been slashed. No more agonizing over when you’ll be able to afford that chiffon blouse or those snake skin pumps!

Try finding the same item on other web sites. Another great tactic to use is to search for a particular clothing item, accessory, or home appliance using a common search engine such as Google. You will get thousands of hits, and with any luck, one of those search results will take you to another online merchant who sells the same thing for a lower price.

Use Ebay, Overstock, or Amazon. From electronics to clothing items, these sites most likely have exactly what you are searching for for less. Sites like Overstock take advantage of the deep merchant discounts that they get and pass them on to consumers. And Amazon and Ebay allow regular people to post brand new and slightly used items that they no longer want or need so that others who can benefit from them have a place to buy them.

Always shop securely. No matter what sites you choose to shop with, always make sure that their system is secure from fraudsters who would love to get their hands on your credit cards or prepaid credit cards. Look for a padlock either in the status bar or the address bar and/or a web address that begins with “https://”. These are signs that it is safe to enter your card information to finalize a purchase.

Now that you’re well-versed on how to shop responsibly, you can indulge in your spending habit without worry.

UnGuarded Release Day Party!

Guardian angel Selene was so close to becoming an archangel—the supreme of all beings—until she fell in love with Cole, a forbidden dark one. Once she discovers her vampire lover has been kidnapped and the only way to save him is by abandoning her number one priority—Caitlyn, her human charge—there really is only one answer in Selene’s mind, even though leaving Caitlyn unguarded will most likely cause Selene to fall from grace. But her choice to save Cole doesn’t come without a price…and now Selene is racing against time to not only save her dark lover, but find a way to keep Caitlyn alive as well. With the help of a new vampire ally, Luke, Selene will push her diminishing angel abilities to the point where her very existence lies in the balance. Now threatened with the chance of becoming a fallen angel or even dying, Selene can only pray she’ll have enough time—and good grace—to save the ones she loves.

Do you read E-Books?

I was an avid reader until having two babies at home and not a lot of time for myself. Instead I opted for reading magazines, cookbooks and blogs. I am not an avid T.V watcher anymore and I don't follow a series each week. I do like to catch up on shows I love here and there. Mostly on my overnights as I work cleaning the house I work in.

I really want to get back to reading more novels, non-fiction and fiction. I tried my hand at e-books about a year ago and couldn't really get into sitting at a computer to read for long periods, plus I didn't have a mobile computer just a desktop PC. Now that I have a netbook and I am waiting on a Tablet to arrive any day now, I am going to try again with e-reading.

I love the concept of e-books, as you can always have books on hand where ever you go. It is lighter to travel with e-books but you need a reader or netbook that has a battery that will last longer than an hour. My poor netbook last about an hour - hour and a half. My new tablet is suppose to be

Now that I am a new e-book reader I will be looking at all the available programs to use on my netbook and tablet (as soon as it arrives). There are many available on the web. Here are the top three I want to check out first - Kindle for PC, Mobipocket Reader, and the Sony Reader.

If you have any that you love please let me know, I am looking for something I can manage e-books into a collection, by genre, author etc, be able to bookmark and highlight. I also want to be able to read PDF books. I have heard good things about Mobipocket and will be checking this one out this week.

Watch for some fun reviews, giveaways, and more!
