The Hero of Color CityI was lucky enough to get a review copy about an adorable movie being released on DVD and Blu-Ray tomorrow, Dec. 2, 2014- The Hero of Color City.  Not only is the movie cute and teaches children several life lessons but the company has partnered with a non-profit organization called The Crayon Collection; they collect crayons  from national and regional restaurant chains to donate to children in need.

This adorable movie follows Ben and his Crayons’ magical Crayon Box, which transports them to COLOR CITY, a world of dazzling hues, soaring fantasy and the whimsy of childhood. Find out what happens when crayons come to life in this charming new animated feature starring CHRISTINA RICCI,CRAIG FERGUSON, ROSIE PEREZ, WAYNE BRADY, JESSICA CAPSHAW and SEAN ASTIN!

My six-year-old loved the movie and has watched it twice today. I am ecstatic to be able to offer you the chance to win a FREE copy of the movie here. Super simple giveaway, just leave a comment letting me know why you think your child would like the movie and I will draw a random winner one week from today, on December 8th 2014. I will email the winner and announce here on the blog.

Because this is the fist giveaway I have hosted in quite a while, (nursing school has taken over my life!) I am keeping this one really simple, no extra or bonus entries- just a comment is all it takes. Feel free to share the post or any other for that matter though! Always appreciated! I finally graduate in May and am hoping to get lots more time to blog once I am settled in a job and working a normal schedule again!


Closed: Mixbook Photobook Review and giveaway!!

I had the wonderful opportunity to review the personalized photo books and special promotions at Mixbook. I got a 8.5×8.5 inch photo book printed and I was amazed at the quality! I even managed to work out a giveaway to one lucky reader (see bottom)! 

The ordering process was super easy, just drag and drop pictures into the pre-made pages, or for digital scrappers just choose the full-page template and drag your layout to the book.  The bleed areas were very small, the areas I thought would be cut off were not, and the ‘preview’ you get before you order was very accurate! I have pictures below to see the quality I need a better camera these pictures do it no justice.  The colors were right on with what I expected; no tint or anything abnormal like I got with other printers in the past. 

Oh, and even though it is the 8.5 inch size it seems at least an inch bigger than my 8 inch books as you can see in the comparison picture above.  8×8 seems too small, 12×12 too big, but I am loving this 8.5 inch size!

The Giveaway: 

The great people at Mixbook have offered one reader a free 20 page 8.5×8.5 photo book! This giveaway is super simple- just tell me what you would print a book of in the comments and you get one entry.  If you blog, facebook, or share this post online; leave another comment and I will add another entry.  Good luck! (Giveaway Closed- Winner is Paula M.- Thanks everyone!)


Internet Sweepstakes and Giveaways

I wanted to share a new source of money for me, Instant Cash Sweepstakes, I am hooked, and already cashed out after only about a week, it wasn’t much at all but I had fun making that little bit LOL  It is something to do that requires no money, no brain power- and pays.

You just answer a few polls like the one in the widget below.  Once you answer the polls (they limit the amount you can do every 3 hours or so so you can’t sit there and do it all day- only like 10-15 minutes every few hours to win).  Anyway, after you finish each poll you ‘win’, you can win cash (.01 cents to lots lots more), coins (which are used to enter into the $2 drawing every 4 hours) or ‘tickets’ (used to enter the daily $50 prize)

Here is the best part, for everyone you refer you match them, only one level deep- so if they take a survey and win .25 cents you also get .25, if they win the $2 drawing you win $2 too! So if you have a large network of friends and online people then you can win even more.

Like I said though, this is not a full time job, this is not big money (it could be but not on a regular basis- just the few times you win the big prizes. LOL).  You can cash out to your paypal acount after just $2 and I already have and the payment came pretty quick.   The longer you play it he more you win, the more you play then the higher your levels can go, your levels are earned by answering questions honestly when they do demographic polls (like “are you male” yes or no)  They ask these to be sure that you were both honest in your profile and to make sure you are reading the questions and not just picking a random answer.  But since you are only taking like 5 short polls every three hours or so you shouldn’t be in such a rush that you have to pick randomly.

Its fun, its free, go sign up and win some money!


ENDED- No More Fighting- Company Kids Review and Giveaway!

Winner to be announced in a bit!

I don’t know about your kids, but Taylor HATES to get dried off, I don’t know why, it is not like I am being rough or it hurts, she just hates it. I got the opportunity to review a hooded towel from Company Kids recently and of course I picked the pink kitty towel, but they have a bunch of options to pick from! Taylor loves it, we were able to play dress up instead of ‘dry off’ which helped a lot in actually getting her dry without a ton of tears.

These towels are MUCH bigger and softer than other hooded towels we have owned, you know the ones- they are the size of a big hand towel and about as thick as tiolet paper! The Company Kids towel is softer than our own towels and absolutely adorable! They went above and beyond the typical hood and added in ‘paws’ and even a big tail in the back.


The towels retail for $29.50, you can buy them here, and because I want to share the happy bathime endings, Company Kids is offering 1 lucky EverydayEve reader their very own hooded towel (“Duckie,” “Ugly Monster,” or “Kitty.”)

Simple entry: Visit Company Kids and tell me about another product you would like to have!

Best Timing EVER! A Little Smell Good Giveaway- $5 WM Gift Cards – ENDED

Congrats to the winners- Tiff, Tara, and Samantha- none of which are actually bloggers this go round- one of the first giveaways I have held where a blogger didn’t win! You have been emailed and have 48 hours to get me your address so I can send out your gift cards! Congrats again girls!!  No more stinky rooms!

Who knew that Febreze was psychic?  A package showed up today while my husband was home from work for lunch- he hasn’t been feeling well so it was PERFECT timing to test out the Febreze Set & Refresh units they sent me.

I got two units to try out,  one was a fruity smelling Dragon Fruit unit with a pretty pink holder that goes GREAT in Taylor’s bathroom.  And the other is my all time favorite scent; Linen & Sky that I promptly placed in our bathroom.  Let’s just say- it worked!  And it was not overwhelming like some of the other ‘smell good’ products I have used.  It is very light and blends in great in both rooms.  As far as set up- it couldn’t have been easier- open the package and insert the scent- no peeling off any slippery backings or fiddling with settings.  (It was almost too easy, I kept wondering if I missed a step somewhere until I noticed it was working!)

Along with the two units I also got a little booklet with a quiz about those old ‘cone’ air freshener, and I have to admit, I did recently throw out a few forgotten rotten apple core looking ones that I had stashed in the laundry room recently!  Click here or on the picture to take the quiz yourself!

Coming from a scent junkie, I definitely recommend these,  take a look in any cabinet and you will find remnants of previous things I have tried; candles, cones, plugins, sprays, you name it- I will try it out.  No complaints with the new Febreze Set & Refresh units as of yet!

It comes in a few other scents like  Meadows & Rain, Spring & Renewal, Linen & Sky, Hawaiian Aloha, Thai Dragon Fruit, and a limited edition Apple Spice & Delight.  Be sure to Visit Febreze on Facebook or Febreze on Twitter and “Like” or “Follow” the brand to keep up with the latest news from Febreze and see some of the other things they offer at .

The Giveaway

As another sweet surprise in the package I got three $5 walmart gift cards to give away to you!  This is the first official giveaway on this blog so I am super exited to get started!  I have missed offering up giveaways since I changed blogs and went to full time blog design at DWE.   Really easy to enter, only two requirements to enter- follow this blog on Google Friend Connect (look on the right sidebar and hit ‘follow’) and leave a comment telling me where you would put your new Febreze Set & Refresh unit!
