Devil's Due Bluray Review

We are huge movie fans and love all types of movies, by my favorite movies are horror, so you could only imagine my excitement when I found out Devil's Due was on it's way to me for a review. While the trailer didn't give away too much in details, it still peaked my interest because, well, it's a horror movie and the Devil Baby prank that everyone heard so much about really sparked a lot of interest in this movie. 


My Thoughts:

Of course, I had to had a movie night as soon as I received my copy of Devil's Due. First, it's filmed in first person, which is alright with me because I am used to that and see it more and more these days. 

In the beginning, I really thought it was going to be a really good movie especially considering it is a 20th Century Fox Film, but sad to say, this movie really disappointed me. The story was not all that good as it could have used a lot more details to explain the story itself so the viewer wasn't left in the dark about what was going on. The whole movie is about a newly married couple who find out they are expecting a baby a lot earlier than they had planned after returning from their honeymoon. Come to find out after the wife starts acting extremely weird and the husband goes back over the honeymoon videos, they are supposedly carrying the Anti-Christ after being part of a sacrifice. 

While I will admit that a few of the scenes were great, the whole movie lacked so much. I honestly felt like I was watching an extremely low budget movie. The dialogue was pretty much the same thing over and over throughout the entire movie with a few different things thrown in here and there. 

If you are one of those that followed the whole Devil Baby prank incidents gearing up for Devil's Due, sad to say, you never once even see the baby in the movie. We come to the scene where the baby is born and then the movie ends, without any warning or more details, which leaves me to believe their may be a Devil's Due part 2....

While I am not saying that the whole movie is a waste because it's not, it does have it moments that hold your attention wondering what is going to happen next, it just really disappointed me and I was hoping for more.  I have seen mixed emotions on this movie where some like it and some don't, it's all up to the individual person, but as for me and my husband, we didn't care too much for it. Maybe the more will come with a second movie...only time will tell.


If you are wanting to grab a copy, head on over to Amazon!

Pacha's Pajamas Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 

Are you always on the look out for great children's books and music?  Well I have had the pleasure of reviewing a great audio book that has both a story and music - Pachas Pajamas.


I was surprised at how fun this audio book was.  In fact I enjoyed it so much I finished it in just a few sittings!  I just wished I had this when my kids were growing up. Even though I didn't know about it for my grandkids, nieces and nephews.  I know they will enjoy it when they come to Grandma/Aunties house! This will definitely be a change for them from me sitting down and reading to them!

Pacha’s Pajamas is the first and only full-length Children’s Pop Musical. Since it is nature-themed, we sometimes call it Eco-Pop. The soundtrack showcases 55 artist including famous performers and young talent of different generations and cultural backgrounds including Yasiin Bey, Cheech Marin, Talib Kweli, Majora Carter, Gerald C. Rivers, Ta’Kaiya Blaney and Lyrics Born.
The story centers on a little girl with big dreams. One night, the animals and plants on her new pajamas come alive. Entering her dream as a small gorilla, she comes upon an unlikely group of creatures feeling sad about the state of the world. Nature unites to tell its captivating story at a global festival where species have come together to bring balance to the planet. They build a stadium, half land, half water and powered by electric eels. Fun-filled acts include an insect band called The Beetles, a black-eyed pea rapping for a better world and a beaver named Just-in-Time. At the end of the show, Pacha shares an important message for all of nature and humanity.
The story leverages pop culture, music and humor to cultivate social conscience in a playful and inspiring manner. It addresses important topics — environmental sustainability, nature connection, and childhood health and planetary balance. It supports the development of creative expression, living an imagination inspired life and dreaming BIG. This first dream adventure of Pacha calls for kids to be superheros in their community as well as to reconnect with their own nature and Nature itself of which they are a part. The soundtrack has 8 story tracks and 7 songs. Each song has a message for kids and a call to action.

Pachas Pajamas conveys a great message of nature, acceptance caring and more to me.

How many of you prefer a large purse or maybe use a tote bag as a purse? I do! For some reason, I have never been able to use a small purse...I've attempted to and have found myself with an overstuffed bag and not able to locate anything that I needed. How frustrating!

I recently received a gorgeous bag from Pattern LA, the Pattern Signature Die Cut Leather Bag. This exquisite bag is an open tote in soft pebble leather featuring the signature Pattern LA laser-cut logo design. The classic shape and upscale finish create a timeless elegance and endless versatility that is also very chic and trendy. If I had to describe this bag in one word, I would simply say "gorgeous!"

Lightload Towels Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Does your family have a bug out bag, survival kit, emergency preparedness kit or even a first aid kit set up? You never know when something will happen! Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Earthquakes, or any number of natural disasters can happen at any time. Maybe you are like us and are preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse? It's never too early to start preparing! 

When you think of putting together a kit, of course, you think of necessities such as water, bandages, non-perishable foods, medicine, clothing, etc...but I recently had the opportunity to review a product that I couldn't wait to get my hands on when I first saw it because I knew it would be perfect for anyone's kit. 



World renowned Lightload Towels are the only beach towels that fit in your pocket. All our towels are survival tools. Use them for so much including a firestarter, face mask, insulation,diaper and more. The towels are soft against the skin and washable. Great for packing in small places and excellent for shedding weight.

Sizes Available:
Beach towels 36x60 inch assorted colors 
three pack 12 x24 inch assorted colors 
two packs 12 x12 inch assorted colors

We had the opportunity to review a 3 pack of the 12x24" towels. I was really excited when we received ours and couldn't wait to see what they were all about and how they would work. 


They are all individually wrapped in waterproof packaging which makes it really great because you don't have to worry about how long you have them stored or switching them our for new product every so often. You can just store them in your kit, glove compartment, etc...and not worry about them until you need them. 


Lightload Towels are about the size of a 50 cent piece but much thicker. The compact size makes it easy for you to store them anywhere, which is great because when you are putting together a survival kit, size matters for everything because let's face it, there is only so much you can carry at one time. 


It takes a minute to figure out how to get the towel unfolded from this compact little disc, but once you get it, it's a breeze to finish opening up. Not only are these awesome for survival kits, but they are handy just to have in your car, beach bag or even your bathroom. You never know when you will need an emergency towel and Lightload Towels are perfect for any job.  


These reminded me of a mechanics towel at first because of the feeling of them when I first held it after unrolling, but to my amazement, they are extremely absorbent and actually quite soft when wet. They hold up very nicely too. I have already used mine several times and even washed and dried it. I'm not saying they would last forever, but they are perfect for any emergencies. 

We have the other 2 out of the package stored in our survival bags. Lightload Towels are definitely a must have for all of your emergency needs. Order yours today! Don't wait until it's too late! Be Prepared with Lightload Towels!

Adovia Dead Sea Facial Mask Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
The Adovia Dead Sea Facial Mask is the most amazing mask I have ever used!



Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask - Purifying Natural Facial Mask and Skin Care Treatment for Women, Men and Teens - Face Mask for Acne Treatment, Reduce Blackheads & Pimples, Exfoliator and Deep Facial Cleanser. Works for Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne and Leaves Skin Radiant, Younger Looking & Smooth.

I love facial masks! Let's face it, I love any facial skincare items in general, but masks are my favorite, so I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to review the Adovia Dead Sea Facial Mask




About Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask by Adovia-
Facial Mask Tightens and Purifies Pores leaving Clear, Younger Complexion
Dead Sea Mud Quickly Reduces Acne and Pimples
Over 21 Minerals Present in Dead Sea Mud Mask help to keep skin healthier and act as acne treatment
A Facial Dead Sea Mud Mask Facial Treatment in Spas cost from $70-120. This Mask contains 30 Sessions!
Can be Used as Spot Treatment & Blackhead Remover

Very seldom do I find a product that exceeds my expectations to the point of being in love with the product after the first use, but that is exactly the case with the mask. I was so surprised at how smooth and creamy the Dead Sea Mask was. In the past, the masks I have used have caused my face to feel extremely tight, but I didn't have this issue with this mask. It was just an overall very refreshing feeling. It feels so good on my skin that I have actually used it twice this week already and I notice a huge difference in my skin.  I have combination skin meaning some of my skin is oily and some is extremely dry and the mask has really helped to even out my skin. My pores are so much smaller and my skin is soft and smooth. I am happy to report that I didn't suffer from any redness or itching as I have with certain masks in the past. 

My husband had a lot of fun trying the Adovia Dead Sea Face Mask out too! He was really surprised once he washed the mask off to see that he had no blackheads on the end of his nose. In a matter of 20 minutes, they were gone! He said the mask was very relaxing to wear and he loved that it didn't make his face feel tight. 



I even let my daughter and son use the Dead Sea Facial Mask as they both have  an issue with blackheads on the tip of their nose and they both loved it. They can't wait until I let them use it again. My son thought it was really cool as he thought it looked liked the camo military face paint. 




One thing I loved about the Adovai Dead Sea Facial Mask besides the fact that it really works and works well, is the fact that it is Made in Israel! If you do your research, you will see that Israel has the best skincare products on the market and I am proud to say that I own one. 

Needless to say, we all had fun having a spa evening in our house while the younger children were playing. We should definitely do this more often. 

After seeing the effects that the Adovia Dead Sea Facial Mask had on myself, my husband, my son and daughter, I would love to own the entire line of products. I know they would be well worth it. I have never really followed much of a skincare routine, but I would definitely set one with these products as would other members of my family.

Cowgirls N Angels: Dakota's Summer Blu-ray Review



Oscarr Winner Keith Carradine* (Cowboys & Aliens) stars alongside a young, popular cast that includes Haley Ramm (X-Men: The Last Stand) , Jade Pettyjohn (American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars), and Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow) in this inspiring second chapter of the beloved Cowgirls 'N Angels story! After she receives unexpected news about herself, a 17-year-old girl (Ramm) experiences an exciting, yet challenging life in and out of the rodeo circuit in this wonderful coming- of-age story. Filled with heart, horses and high-reaching adventure, Cowgirls 'N Angels: Dakota's Summer is an uplifting reminder that with courage, friendship and passion, anything is possible.


I have always loved horses so of course I was so excited when I received Cowgirls N Angels 2 for review. I fell in love with the first one and couldn't wait to see this one too. Even if you haven't seen the first one, you will have no trouble following along. 

My Thoughts

In Cowgirls N Angels 2, Dakota learns she is adopted. I can definitely relate to this as I, myself was adopted at 6 months of age. Upon learning the unexpected news, she decides to visit her grandparents for the summer to take the time to think things over. 

In order to try to forget everything, she turns to the horses and throws herself into the competitions. She soon learns that the past has a way of sneaking up on you and the only way to handle it is to deal with it. 

Dakota learns that it's not the blood that matters, true family are the ones that love you no matter what and will be with you through thick and thin.

My entire family really liked this movie, but I thoroughly loved this movie as did my daughter. It's a heartwarming story with wonderful characters that help pull it all together. If you are like me, make sure you have the tissues handy. 

You can get your own copy on Amazon right now. Also pick up the first one too!!!
