Anna Todd, a debut novelist from a small town in Texas, is a viral web phenomenon fairy tale for the digital age.
Last spring, the 25-year-old army wife and One Direction überfan parlayed her love for reading and the British boy band to create the young adult romance series After. Every few days, Anna used Wattpad, a free social reading and writing app, to publish a new installment.

 Todd’s After originally wrote entirely on her phone as a hobby—is now being turned into a four-book series by Simon & Schuster, with the first installment released in October. Paramount Pictures has acquired the film rights to adapt the After story for the big screen.

The plot of After revolves around young Tessa and her on-again, off-again relationship with Hardin Scott, inspired by One Direction
 singer Harry Styles...not my personal pick from the band but doesn't take away from the captivating story.

Every few days, Anna used Wattpad to publish a new installment. Her fanfic love story swelled to over 2,500 pages and has been viewed more than a billion times!!
One of the greatest benefits of Wattpad is a direct connection between readers and writers. Readers receive notifications whenever a new chapter of a story is posted. Many writers share their work serially: posting stories one chapter at a time, so readers keep coming back. As soon as a story is uploaded it can be accessed by millions of readers around the world. 

You can  purchase the book from Barnes & Noble and for  e-reader  today!

I participated in the After by Anna Todd blog program as a member of One2One Network. I received compensation but all opinions are my own.


Did you make  resolutions????
 I only have one---to make small goals that I can realistically keep through the year =)

If I list a bunch of BIG ones I know I'll never get/keep---I start on a bad foot. =^(

A New Year’s resolution is a decision to do or not do something in order to accomplish a personal goal or break a habit. It comes at a time when people look back at the past year and make an effort to improve themselves as the new year begins. Taking small steps is the best way I've found to stick with it!!

Have a HAPPY

Let Kohl's help get a Head Start on 2015 Resolutions

The main topic flashed across many magazines now   is "FRESH START"... "BRAVE NEW YOU"..."NEW LOOK FOR 2015"...You get my drift how to make changes something I know we all "plan" for the new year but by January 4th...all is lost =} 
Maybe if we had some better "tools" we'd be more apt to stick with our New Years resolutions.   With some suggestions from Kohl’s, finding the tools we  need to stick with our resolutions no matter what they may be is easy.

This is a “sponsored post.” The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value to write it. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Here are the TOP 4 things I want to work on for 2015 and some of the items from Kohl's that will help me do them.

Be Organized

Umbra Cubby Entryway Organizer

Modern Littles 5-pc. Chevron Storage Bin Set

Richards Homewares Personal Organizer

Keeping things organized goes hand-in-hand with staying productive.  Make and keep schedules for the day and week. Make deadlines and set goals. That leads right onto the BIG one:

Get Fit

Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity & Sleep Wristband

Wearing the right clothing can make the difference between an enjoyable workout and an hour of misery. And investing in some stylish  yet comfortable workout clothing is the perfect motivation to get you moving, whether you’re hitting the gym, heading for the hills or exercising in the comfort of your own home- they are made for comfort and will last longer. 
The next one on the list can be an even bigger challenge for some then getting fit:

Eat Healthier

You don't want your work-out to be in vain so eating right is going to require some changes selecting quality ingredients, choosing the right types of fats and sweeteners etc   The foundation of healthier eating is  cooking with the right tools. If you have the means to make better food and snacks for yourself  you will make better eating habits.

Rest and Relaxation

There are many benefits to taking time to relax
Get Creative: Your best ideas often pop-up when you’re most relaxed and in free thinking mode. While working under adverse conditions may provide an adrenaline surge to meet deadlines, it really isn't a great way to spur creativity.
Celebrate: Taking time in your hectic schedule to break away from work and rejoice in what you've accomplished can be a forceful drive to achieve even more.
Rejuvenate: A short ‘vacation’ from the hustle and bustle of your typical work-day can help ignite the passion and excitement...not only to make great New Years Resolutions but to KEEP them.

Ozeri Ultra 42" Tower Fan #Review

 The new Ozeri Ultra 42" Tower Fan boasts a sophisticated and stylish ultra-slim design and one of the most impressive feature sets among tower fans. The Ozeri Ultra Tower Fan's stylish design complements and enhances room decor.

 Ozeri Ultra Tower Fan operates at 3 whisper-quiet speed settings and oscillates 90 degrees for timely relief on a sweltering summer day or for refreshing circulation all year long. The Ozeri Ultra Tower Fan also includes 3 selectable airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort. All of the Fan's features, including a room temperature display, are illuminated on the Fan's multi-colored bright LED screen, and can be activated via the included enhanced-range remote or via the built-in control panel. The Ozeri Ultra Tower Fan also features a 12 hour timer that can be programmed in 1 hour increments with push-button ease, and ships included with a removable extension column that adjusts the Fan's height from 32" to 42".

When recieved this and was pleasantly surprised--very powerful fan--yet looks sleek in the room.  I love the timer feature and my Hubby loves the remote!  It was a little tricky to put together and on a rug does have a lil wobble to it. I also like the cutout feature  for the cord.

here's a video demo

Find the Fan on Amazon


Looking for a Fun Unique gift!

The ocarina necklace is on sale for $18 (regularly

Walmart Toyland #ChosenByKids Event InnoTabMax #Review

The past few weekends Wal-Mart has been hosting a toys #ChosenByKids hands on display at store around the USA. Our family was invited to become official toy testers.

The Wal-Mart was set up rather small and only a few toys were out to try but my Son enjoyed himself! The lady who was demonstrating was very friendly and engaged my usually quite and shy Son into quite a lengthy conversation
about what he wants for Christmas.
There were toys from the Northpole movie, Some Mega Bloks, Olaf was there and Nerf guns. Olaf was very cute to try out - He has 4 quotes all from the movie and he sings and sways to "In Summer"
Building the racetrack with the Mega Bloks was my Sons highlight of the trip.


Checking out a few and our Official Tester and Approved Kit =)

The Snowball was pretty cool makes a great stocking stuffer!

But the hit of the trip for me was the InnoTabMax!!! This tablet is just the right for my Son-  combines our expert-supported learning library with carefully selected educational Android apps -Its really the best first "laptop" you'll find.

There are some great bundle with games and accessories  too .
  • Best of Both Learning Worlds: An ever-expanding library of over 650 educator supported learning cartridges and carefully selected educational Android apps
  • 7" multi-touch screen with high-resolution display and kid-safe Wi-Fi.
  • VTech Kid Connect app: Exchange text and voice messages, photos, drawings and fun stickers with smart phones.
  • Years of Learning Fun: Adaptable design with a tough, kid-friendly cover that can be removed for a more grown-up feel. Plus, a huge library of expert-supported curricula including an ever-expanding selection of hand-picked Android learning apps that are perfect for kids of all ages.

Right now it's a ROLLBACK--at $82.50 !! So guess what I grabbed one!! There are  cartridge games that can be bought separately  TMNT, Marvel Heroes and MonsterInc and Disney movies are just a few that are available.

The Walmart Toyland #ChosenByKids Events are over for this year so be sure to check them out next year, I know I will! Its very fun to see how your children play with all the hottest toys!!!

Gourmet Souffle Chocolate Dessert Review.

Sweets and the holidays go together about as much as red and green do at Christmas-time. That's why I thought it would be fun to sample a new brand that has a mouth-watering chocolate dessert, perfect for the holidays! 

Gourmet Soufflé has an innovative mix that allows you to enjoy restaurant-style chocolate soufflés in just minutes. Normally I wouldn't even attempt this because  it takes more than an hour to prepare these types of soufflés, but now it's so easy  to bake Gourmet Souffle at  home. Mix+Water+Pour+Sugar and Bake!! 

I was sent enough product to host a small party.  My guests were asked to try and make the product.  We had mixed results, it was fun to see the different topping everyone attempted too. Some guest didn't fill up their ramekin enough so the souffle looks a lil flat. 

 In the end the party was fun the product was  super easy to make. We had fun creating our own topping for the souffles. The taste was light on the fork but there was a POW of Chocolate that just cannot be put into words! We also filled a few with a caramel that left us speechless!!
Look at that ooey gooey goodness!!!

A HUGE THANKS to Gourmet Souffle for making me feel like Julia Child for a day.
