Last weekend my children and I hosted a MegaBloks Dragon Universe Party. I had 6 boys and girls (yes girls wanted to play too) and their parents at my home, along with my three kids. I'm so glad I had very helpful parents, or it could have gotten a little out of hand!

The party was a huge success with the children and their parents. It was really nice to see the parents on the floor with the kids helping them to assemble their toys. It is always a pleasure to see the parents involved with their children versus standing on the side engrossed in "adult" conversations.

About MegaBloks Dragon Universe:

With Mega Bloks® Dragons Universe, Megabrands has taken classic play of man vs beast and brought it into a futuristic world designed to appeal to today's kids. With Mega Bloks® Dragons Universe, boys can build a world filled with cool new technology and weapons, and create awesome battles with huge Dragons, heroic soldiers, amazing vehicles and even surprise role-play elements. And with an open-ended story line, boys can ultimately decide who will reign victorious!


The party started with a few "ice breaker" games, followed by a dragon egg hunt. Once the kids found their eggs, parents and children sat down to assemble the toys. The group spent about 45 minutes engrossed in assembly and play. The children, and moms had so much fun!

Towards the end of the party we had a drawing for the grand prize- a large Dragons Universe set. Unfortunately, there was only one winner. The other kids were so disappointed when their name wasn't drawn. Believe it or not, a nine year old girl was more upset than the younger boys that were present.

These toys will make great holiday gifts or birthday gifts for adventurous boys and girls alike!

Disclosure: This was a sponsored house party event courtesy of MommyParties and Dragons Universe. I received a prize pack to share with guests, as well as a large set for my children.

I was recently given the opportunity to review an item from Sexual Fantasy Boutique. I chose the cute little Eskimo Cutie Costume shown below. Priced at $44.97, this costume proved to be a great BARGAIN!

The costume included: a crushed velvet dress with zipper and fur lined hood and sleeves, mittens, fur lined boot covers and a fauxchocolate popsicle. I wear a size 3 and as you can see, the small fit me perfectly. The dress is very easy to put on. The zipper allows you to put it on over your head, or step into it. The dress feels very comfortable on, and I felt incredibly sexy in it! The model does have the "Angel Petticoat" under her dress, and although it adds to the cuteness factor, there is no need to spend the extra money to look great.

I have very long arms, and the sleeves were just right.  The gloves also fit my long hands very nicely, and also felt comfortable. The boot covers were a little difficult to put over my boots, but as you can see, they looked great once I got them on. The popsicle is a great addition to this well crafted sexy costume.

I attend a lot of "costume" parties throughout the year, and I can't wait to wear this to a Christmas costume party! This costume is great for the bedroom, or for an adult costume party. This holiday season surprise your spouse or significant other with something they can really enjoy!

The Christmas Dream is a welcome respite from the overstimulation of the season. On the recording, children learn to relax in Reindeer Flight Training, fly with Santa on a Global journey, hear prayers from around the world, and learn to care for all people. It was created for children, ages 3-9.


“Teel’s soothing combination of yoga-like stretches, stories about Santa, lush songs about the Moon and other delights will have your little ones begging you to tuck them in.” Parenting

–Children’s Music Web Award—Best Seasonal Recording

“…Themes of unity, love and world peace are prevalent as the plot takes sleepy-time children on a trip around the world. Although adults may limit its use to Christmas time, children are not likely to tire of hearing this calming fantasy year-round. A beautiful tool for children who struggle to fall asleep, parents will appreciate this title and the relaxation skills it teaches.”

–School Library Journal

I was anxious to give The Christmas Dream a try. My five and nine year old boys often have a very hard time falling asleep. They get up out of their beds several times before they finally fall asleep. I can honestly say that I am very impressed with this CD. The calming sounds, wonderful story telling and melodic tunes makes for a wonderful addition to bedtime. In a very soothing voice, Patti guides children through two routines to fall asleep. The first routine contains three tracks and the second contains 8 tracks.

My five year old really enjoyed the first couple of tracks in Bedtime Routine One. He was laughing and saying "This is funny", but not once did he get out of the bed! My nine year old also stayed in his bed as the CD played, and he went to sleep much sooner than he would without the CD. I also found the CD to be very calming and relaxing. It is a great way to unwind at the end of a long day.

Although this CD is a "Christmas" CD, I believe that it would be perfect for bedtime throughout the year for children of all ages. I recommend you buy a copy for your children, and to hand out as gifts to friends and family this holiday season.


To purchase the CD and learn more about Patti Teel visit: The CD retails for $12.95.

Good for Adults, Good for Kids and Good for Bees

If you are looking for a drink with health benefits, green, organic, kid friendly and has only 80 calories per every 16oz bottle, look no more because honeydrop Beverages is here!

Honeydrop is a new company producing organic beverages sweetened solely with organic honey. CEO David Luks created a healthy drink that has no sugar, chemicals, high fructose corn syrup or other additives, and has fewer calories and tastes great. Luks developed the beverage after having had cancer and studying the benefits of an organic lifestyle.

Each bottle of honeydrop has a different flavor and a different purpose, Bee Strong is a mixture of blueberry juice and honey. Its filled with antioxidant from blueberries and honey which make you "Strong". Bee Alive is a mixture of blood orange juice and honey and contains 100% vitamin C and makes you feel "alive". Lastly, Bee Calm, is a mixture of chamomile tea and honey which is for calming the body.

If you didn't already know, honey has many medicinal benefits including:
  • alleviating and soothing sore throats better than cough syrup
  • protects against obesity and hypertension making it great for diabetics
  • contains glucose and fructose for lasting energy and performance
  • contains natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals

I received three flavors to review. Blueberries & Honey, Blood Oranges & Honey and Chamomile, tea and Honey. My favorite by far was the Bee Alive- Blood Orange & Honey. I am a huge fan of blood oranges, so I was excited to see this as one of the flavors offered. The beverage had just the right amount of sweetness and I loved the natural taste of blood oranges. The elimination of artificial sweeteners really gave the beverage a great all-natural, refreshing taste.

The Bee Calm- Chamomile & Honey was also a nice beverage. I enjoy drinking chamomile tea, so I enjoyed the natural flavors in this tea. It didn't appeal to my taste buds as much as the Bee Alive, but it is a pleasant drink.

I am not a fan of blueberries, so I allowed my daughter to try the Bee Strong- Blueberry & Honey beverage. She stated that it taste just like blueberries, but it had a little too much honey for her. That could be because she is not a huge fan of honey.

The honey taste is quite noticeable in these beverages, so if you are not a fan of honey or aren't use to the flavor of honey, it may take some getting use to. If you look at all the benefits of honey, and compare these beverages to those artificially sweetened, you just may want to give Honeydrop Organic Beverages a try! 


Celebrities like Hugh Jackman are drinking Honeydrop, and you can too! You can find out more about Honeydrop beverages by visiting their website, Honeydrop beverages are sold in over 125 Whole Food stores and 150 specialty stores nationwide. Honeydrop cost between $1.50-$1.99 per bottle.

Portable Body Wipes Keep Kids Fresh, Clean & Confident All Day

QwikShower Wipes’ a boon for physically active children and pubescent tweens and teens who get soiled, sweaty, stinky and self-conscious; Portable single-use disposable washcloths an easy, convenient and economical way to help kids get clean and eliminate embarrassing grime and body odor after gym class, sports and other physical activities

To help parents clean and freshen up their kids when a shower isn’t feasible, My Kids Stink, LLC has introduced QwikShower Wipes ( – large, moist, single-use disposable cloths with a subtle “teenager-approved” scent and economical price point.

“While there are other body wipes on the market, most are not as large or thick as ours but rather are glorified baby wipes,” notes Harvey Metro, inventor of QwikShower Wipes. “Those that do compare are much more expensive.”

The next best thing to a shower, QwikShower Wipes appeal to kids and adults alike for many reasons:

--Convenient. Each wipe is individually wrapped for portability and to ensure it never dries out. Kids can slip it into a backpack or purse and go!

--Effective. With a large 10” x 12” dimension and a resilient cloth-like material, QwikShower Wipes are big and study enough to clean the entire body - also leaving a slight fresh scent behind that’s been tested and well-received by teenagers and their parents.

--Green. Environmentally friendly, QwikShower Wipes are non-aerosol and emit zero fluorocarbon emissions unlike popular body sprays. This also ensures the scent won’t invade the personal space of others or overwhelm a locker room.

--Economical. With an affordable price point starting at just 49 cents each coupled with the company’s free shipping policy, QwikShower Wipes have made it easier and more affordable than ever to keep kids clean and body odor-free.

--Versatile. QwikShower Wipes are not just for gym class! They’re great for use after sports practices and games, a day at the beach, or an impromptu restaurant outing with the family. Also a stellar solution for adults, the wipes are perfectly suited for boaters, campers and fitness enthusiasts. They are also a must for emergency preparedness kits in the event of water outages.

--Fundraising. When partnered with a sponsoring organization, QwikShower Wipes will support local communities throughout the U.S. by contributing 10% of sales to a PTA, booster club or non-profit organization of the buyer’s choice.

“In many school districts, children don’t get as much as a dry towel to wipe away their sweat after gym class,” Metro continues. “This prompts the kids to pull paper towels from the dispensers in a futile attempt to clean themselves, driving up the school’s supply costs and wasting a large amount of paper. Trying to freshen a sweaty body with a dry paper towel just doesn’t work. This and other problematic situations underscore the need and value of QwikShower Wipes.”


As the mother of a pre-teen girl and two active boys, I am always in need of a product to keep my kids fresh and clean throughout the day. Qwik Shower Wipes is a wonderful product to have on hand when your kids need a quick refresher. The wipes have a fresh, clean scent, and they are just as large as a wash cloth. The wipe is more durable than the average wipe on the market, and they stay intact for you to wipe your entire body.

If you have a child that is active or tends to forget to use deodorant, this is a great product for them to have on hand. The wipe helps them eliminate the embarrassing odor caused from sweat. I am so happy to have had the opportunity to review Qwik Shower Wipes!


Qwik Shower Wipes are not only great for active children and teens, but also for adults who need to freshen up between activities. Product available for purchase online at - 1 for $1, 10 for $7, 50 for $29 and 100 for $49. This wipes make for great stocking stuffers this holiday season!

About Alize

Alize Liqueur is intensely unique and inviting. Alizé liqueurs infuse premium French Vodka with luscious flavors from the world's most exotic regions. From the jungles of Brazil, the lush hillsides of Chile and the tropical shores of pacific islands, come the nectars of our exotic fruits. Alizé is delicious on the rocks or served in martinis, cosmopolitans, margaritas and mimosas.

Alize recently announced an exciting brand enhancement of its popular line of passion fruit based liqueur products. Transitioning to a vodka-based spirit, the portfolio of Alizé’s distinct, all natural fruit flavors will provide superior mixibility without compromising its signature taste.  Due to overwhelming consumer demand, the full line, which includes Alizé Red Passion, Alizé Gold Passion, Alizé Wild Passion, Alizé Rose Passion and Alizé Bleu Passion, will now be made exclusively from exotic passion fruit, all natural exotic fruit juices and remarkably smooth premium French vodka. 


Alize liqueur was one of the first alcoholic beverages I tried almost 10 years ago, and I have been a fan every since. I was recently given the opportunity to review Alize's Red Passion Liqueur. This liqueur consists of exotic passion fruit and cranberries blended with premium french vodka.

My cousin assisted in my review, and we first tried the drink on the rocks, which is how I usually drink Alize. This was her first time drinking Alize, and she said that she really enjoyed the drink. She mentioned that it was "sweet and fruity", and the taste of vodka wasn't too strong. The mix of passion fruit and cranberry makes for one delicious drink! I can not wait to try the other blends!


As previously stated, I've always drank Alize on the rocks, but I was given a few recipes to assist in my review, so I decided to try something different. When it's cold outside and you want to warm up with a tasty drink, may I suggest:

Peppermint Kiss

3 ounces Alizé Red Passion
3 ounces Taittinger Champagne
Serve chilled in a champagne glass with mint leaf to garnish.

I tried this recipe and it is a great alternative to Alize on the rocks.

If you decide to purchase another flavor of Alize Passion Liqueurs maybe you would like to try:

Rosy Cheeks

2 ounces white wine
1 ounce Alizé Gold Passion
Serve chilled in a champagne flute.

OR MAYBE....................................................

Baby It’s Cold Outside

2 ounces Alizé Gold Passion
1 ounce apple schnapps
½ ounce vodka
½ ounce triple sec
Shake well over ice, strain and serve straight up in a martini glass.


Snowflake Sip

3 ounces Alizé Bleu
2 ounces club soda
Blend ingredients and serve over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime or lemon twist.

This holiday, show up with something that the host or hostess really wants- Alize Passion Liqueurs!

Alize may be purchased anywhere liqueur is sold. For more information on Alize visit:

I just found this cute little website that I must share with you. If you like to send personalized messages, this is one you don't want to miss! Send anyone (friends, SO, colleague, children, parents, etc) that you know a personalized video from Santa! I tested the services before I made this post, and I am extremely impressed by what the video allows you to do and what is entailed in the video for FREE.

You can choose if the recipient is a toddler, child or adult, their name, relationship to you, their country, state and zip code, their hair and eye color, grade, age, if they've been "naughty or nice", what gift they are expecting, etc. You can also download a picture of the recipient, a picture of a special event this year and a picture of the gift they are expecting. The video can be sent to any email address you chose and you receive a special link to share with others. Before the video is sent it allows you to view it.

I can't believe how detailed the video is. My children are going to love receiving their videos from Santa. Even if they don't believe in him! It was done with so much attention to detail, I am sure they are going to wonder how Santa knew so much about them! This is a great video to send to anyone that you know this holiday season, even if they don't believe in Santa!
