New baking and transforming fun from Hasbro ! #PlayLikeHasbro


We love to share parts of our childhood with our daughter. She has been exposed to all kinds of toys from the 80’s and earlier because that’s when we grew up and we wanted to share our love of Hasbro toys we had growing up as kids with her.
The Easy-Bake Oven is something that has been around for a long time, it’s a toy that my mother shared with me when I was a little girl and it’s now something I share with my daughter. This is a generational toy, it’s a rite of passage toy that’s usually passed down from generation to generation. It’s a fun toy that even though I’m old enough to bake with an actual oven baking up tasty treats in the Easy-Bake never gets old.

Never lose your ring, be safe with RingSafe! #Giveaway


Since I’m the one who experienced the loss I told my wife I’d do this review. When we were married (12 years next month) I weighed over 230 pounds, so my wedding ring fit a chubby guy. When the chubby guy got tired of being chubby he lost weight at one point I was 80 pounds lighter than I was on my wedding day.

My wedding ring no longer fit on my svelte finger (and due to the style and type of ring it couldn’t be re-sized only replaced and I didn’t want a new ring because it wasn’t mine) but I still wanted to wear it. I decided to wear my ring around my neck on a toggle clasp necklace I had worn for years, it was a great idea! I had worn my ring in this fashion for about 7 years and it was perfect…until that fateful day last year when my toggle clasp un-toggled and my wedding ring slipped off without my knowing. I was wearing a sweatshirt and didn’t feel that the necklace was undone and that my ring had slipped off. I was devastated, crushed and heart broken.

Hotel Transylvania 2 in theaters September 25, 2015 Check out this fun giveaway! #HotelT2 #Giveaway



Looking for a fun film the whole family will love? Be sure to check out the new movie, Hotel Transylvania 2 from Sony Pictures opening in theaters September 25, 2015! Celebrate our diversity, we are all different, but we can all be freinda and live and love each other, despite all of our many differences. My daughter and I loved the original Hotel Transylvania movie, it was filled with laughs and a fun story. I am sure new Hotel Transylvania2 movie will be just as fun!
Drac’s pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 2! Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania... Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire.

Looking for new affordable car insurance check out @Metromile a new car insurance just launched in PA #Giveaway

I’m lucky, my commute to work is straightforward and simple, I leave my house jump on the subway and a few minutes later arrive at my office. My husband on the other hand is in an odd spot and would have to take multiple buses to get to his office so he drives to work. His commute is only 1.5 miles from home so 3 miles round trip a day. His drive to and from work takes him about 7 minutes, on a bus it has taken over an hour and it’s something he’s not really willing to do.
With driving comes the cost of it, like gas and insurance. You need both and while gas prices are coming down my husband’s insurance cost seem to never budge. Living in a big city has its benefits, but it also has its detractions like paying higher than average car insurance. With such a short commute to work and the fact that we average about 6,000 miles a year driving why should we pay the same as someone who drives 3 times the miles we do? I like the concept of pay what you use and with Metromile you get just that and they’re finally available in Pennsylvania!

Disney Infinity 3.0 is more amazing than ever! #Disneyinfinity




Being married to someone who for more than 35 years has played video games, chances were that our child would be a gamer. Not only is she one but she’s a demanding one at that! Our daughter is a very competitive person, and she loves a challenge, and loves it when those challenges involve pixels. She also loves it when she can play a game with her father…..that’s an issue though, she loves the Mario and Zelda type games where my husband loves Madden and Call of Duty and games that you wouldn’t want a 10 year old near. She is constantly trying to find a game that allows her to play with her dad and we’ve finally got that game: Disney Infinity 3.0

This is the game that scratches both their itches. This is the adventure type games my daughter loves and Star Wars which my husband loves. It’s the perfect combination, it’s like the peanut butter and jelly of the video game world. Starting off Infinity 3.0 introduces a whole slew of new figures from the Star Wars Universe (Boba Fett, Anakin and his alter ego Darth Vader, Obi Wan, etc.) and the Disney Universe (Mickey, Minnie, Joy and the rest of the Inside Out crew) and the Marvel Universe (Iron Man Hulkbuster and  Ultron.) The single player campaign has been improved upon from the older versions and that’s a great for us because having a game that you can finish in 45 minutes isn’t something we want and isn’t all that fun.
