Introducing Entenmann’s Minis Sprinkled Iced Brownies! #SprinklefestGiveaway #Entenmanns #ad

My younger son commented to me today, after we returned from spending the day at the beach, that he is having a great summer. I was happy to hear that he is enjoying himself since the past few summers have been much different due to the pandemic. I have been enjoying packing our lunches and snacks for our outdoor adventures. Many of these picnic lunches have included Entenmann's® Minis because they are the same delicious variety of baked goods we know and love, from donuts, crumb cake, apple pie and more, perfectly sized, and individually wrapped.  My son especially loves NEW Entenmann's® Minis Sprinkled Iced Brownies. Let's be honest, there's nothing more fun than the addition of sprinkles – especially on top of a classic snack like brownies! Entenmann's Minis Sprinkled Iced Brownies are fudgy, moist and topped with a layer of decadent fudge icing and fun, colorful sprinkles. We are usually very busy during the week so it is nice to have convenient snack options that are … [Read more...]

Turn Your Home Into A Gaming Arcade With ProjeX! #ProjeX #Giveaway #Ad

Most families who live in New York suddenly had to spend a lot of time with one another a few months ago and we all realized that this was the perfect opportunity to create opportunities to spend meaningful quality time together. When you have two teenagers like I do, it can be a little more challenging to do things as a family that are "cool" enough to keep teens engaged and away from their phones. If you have teens you know exactly what I am talking about! I was so excited when I learned that I would have the chance to review the ProjeX™ Projecting Gaming Arcade from New York City-based NSI International, Inc. ProjeX™ lets you blast targets such as ducks or UFOs that are projected right onto your wall like a real life video game! The best part is that all of these targets each come with its own unique sound effects! Since both of my sons are really tech-savvy and love competing against one another, I knew immediately that ProjeX™ was the perfect game for … [Read more...]

Mistress Of Evil Pie Pops #Maleficent2 #Giveaway #Ad

There is nothing more intriguing than a villainess, especially when she is Maleficent. I had the pleasure of viewing Maleficent 2 this month with my family and I loved it! The special effects in the movie were spectacular and I really enjoyed all of the mythical characters from the Moor. Of course, Angelina Jolie's portrayal of Maleficent was absolutely brilliant! From her costumes to her dark humor she was the perfect one for this role. Disney's most iconic villain when Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and Michelle Pfeiffer, has arrived on Digital and Movies Anywhere, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
