So again Katy Perry has an influence on daughters Halloween outfit. We were on the hunt for a MOD outfit inspired by the This is How We Do video--We hit the JACKPOT on

Geo Go Go Girl/Women's Costume

Don't be square, wear this Geo Women's Go Go Girl Costume to your next party. This two color outfit includes an a-line dress and cap. The black-and-white checkered dress features a collar but no sleeves. With a hemline that reaches far above the knee, it shows off your gorgeous legs. The bicolor baseball-style cap is large enough that you can put in over a mod style wig (sold separately). Here she is ALL ABOUT THE 70s

The fit is a little large on her---but I like to buy bigger because we've Trick -or -Treated in some VERY CHILLY weather--this way she can layer under and still see the Fab outfit she's rocking. Now I just have to find a way to get her some square hair!!

So if your still searching for that "JUST RIGHT" costume I highly recomend there is still plentiy of time--Shipping is FAST and there are plenty of styles to choose from for the whole family.

Wine Club from Uncorked Ventures Review #Uncorked

I want to introduce you to a family owned and operated startup based just outside of San Francisco Uncorked Ventures They spend time in wine country getting to know winemakers, vineyard owners, farmers and others directly involved in the creation of what's in your glass.
--this makes a great office-- RIGHT

Their  wines rated at 90 points or above by major wine critics and although I'm not a  Sommelier I must agree with the critics this was a great glass of wine.-there was a hint of floral and light nutty taste. - Here's how a wine is judged- A wine rated 80-84, for example, was judged to be good “a solid, well-made wine”, while one rated 85-89 is very good “a wine with special qualities”. When assigning a score, the taster judges the wine’s structure, flavors and typicity are done “blind”—that is, the taster does not know the producer or price, so these with a rate of 90 have a 
voluptuous full taste.

  Shipment from the Explorations Wine Club which typically includes both a red and a white wine  starting at $40. 
If you'd prefer you can receive  two bottles of Red  from their Special Selections Wine Club. If you have a desire for a more Highly Wine cellar worthy you can order from their Reserved Selection.  I like that there is a brief note about the vineyard the wine comes from.

 Whatever you choose, it’s a reason to say, “Cheers.”

Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt #Review

Now that school is back in session, it's also the start of a plethora of afterschool activities-soccer, play practice, one club or another.  My daughter is at school for more than 75% of her week! I like making sure she has a wholesome  snacks to get her through the extra long days. One new item we've tried is Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt, she takes it in her insulated lunch bag with two ice packs. Her choice of the week this week was the caramel  swirl with a handful of crushed nuts. She feels like it's her own ice cream sundae.
Each spoonful of Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt is a real treat that they can indulge in anytime, without guilt. Each variety is made with no artificial flavors, real nonfat milk and live, active yogurt cultures to create just the right creamy tartness. You can find it in your grocer’s freezer aisle, with Healthy Choice meals or other frozen novelties. It’s a perfectly cool treat on its own or in simple recipes.

One simple recipe is

1/2 of Blueberries
1/4 cup honey
a splash of milk

and one fancy cup =)

Blend and Enjoy!

Review #truesolraspberryketone

True Sol Raspberry Ketone Plus has been a great addition to my daily routine. I'm home sitting and blogging A LOT and I've gotten into a horrible habit of having a small bowl of snack near me because I'm hungry  or think I am taking the supplement has really curbed my cravings and I feel more energised. Here are the benefits.

Raspberry Ketones 
Raspberry Ketone, a naturally occurring compound found in red raspberries, increases a specific hormone in your body called Adiponectin, which is responsible for regulating your body's metabolism. People with less fat naturally have more of this hormone. When people gain weight, the ability of this hormone to function is inhibited.

Most Raspberry Ketone products include raspberry ketones and nothing else. Research shows that Raspberry Ketones work even better when combined with other specially selected fat burning agents. To provide our customers with maximum health, immune support, and weight loss benefits, we have included clinically proven to burn fat faster and increase overall health at the same time. Unlike other capsule and liquid Raspberry Ketone brands, Caffeine or any other stimulants was added. These synergistic compounds are proven to help you lose weight faster and improve your health at the same time, all without any negative side effects..
African Mango
African Mango extract (Irvingia Gabonensis) has been clinically proven to support weight loss, reduce body fat, and significantly improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels without any undesirable side effects.
Acai Berry
Acai contains several substances called anthocyanins and flavonoids. Anthocyanins and flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life's stressors. They also play a role in the body's cell protection system. Free radicals are harmful byproducts produced by the body.
Green Tea Extract
Green Tea Extract has been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation in the body, boost metabolism, and help you feel satiated between meals.

This product is a MUST HAVE if you are serious about weight loss!

Galley Essentials Silicone Baking Cups #Review

When my young baker of the house saw my newest product to review she could hardly get into the kitchen fast enough! Galley Essentials Silicone Baking Cups are bold and make it fun and ez to bake!

An alternative to churning through hundreds of disposable paper muffin liners (what a waste!) this set of 12 colorful eco-friendly cups can be used over and over again.
I love that they can fit in a  standard metal or glass muffin pans, or they can be placed individually on a flat cookie sheet. I like this feature because I only have two small cupcake pans(6) so now I don't have to wait in order to bake 24 cupcakes. I love that you don't need to spray them  with a non-stick spray. See below...very little of the cupcake  stays on the cup.

These are lightweight yet with a sturdy feel to them.They are easy to hand wash-states Top rack dishwasher safe...I know some dishwashers have a cage like place to secure them I do not so hand wash it is.  Stacks compactly and takes up very little space in the cupboard.Save for oven, microwave and freezer.


*made of flexible silicone so they peel away easily from cupcakes and muffins
*BPA free and Food Grade silicone
*Versatile and can be used for all kinds of baked treats (cupcakes, muffins, mini cheesecakes) and frozen treats as well
*safe temperature range of -40F-446F
*Great to use the colors to separate gluten free baked items from regular baked items
*silicone helps bake evenly
*great for family fun; kids love them!
*super easy to clean

You can pick them up on Amazon
Right now there is a great deal for all the RSR readers-- the deal will save you $3.00 off of the price  (get a set for $7.99 vs the $10.99 regular price)
Coupon Code: TOM25OFF

Oliver and Jumpy #ChildrensBook #Review

I will start out with a positive notes about the stories. I think the unique friendship between the cat and the kangaroo is sweet. I like the fact that Oliver is allergic to mice but he still likes to chase them and let them go. The pictures in the book would definitely capture any childs eye. Over all the storylines are simple and would be easy for a young child to understand.

I have two constructive criticisms for the author - many of the pages have  A LOT of text, all boxed together---even if the same amount of words were separated throughout the page I think it would be a better look-- also the approach to some of the topics may not go over very well with many parents...a smoking hog, while Oliver points out its a gross habit-I think the picture of the hog with the  cigar is unnecessary--just smoke coming from the side of the page would have go the idea across with out the cigar being shown. Also later in the story Oliver comments he likes to flatter Jumpy because most girls like it--I think really EVERYONE like to be flattered now and again. 

Over all I give the collection a 4 of 5 stars.
