Chasing Mavericks Blu-ray review

Chasing Mavericks is the inspirational true story of real life surfing phenom Jay Moriarity (played by newcomer Jonny Weston).  When 15 year old Jay discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, is not only real, but exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson (played by Gerard Butler) to train him to survive it.  As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to accomplish the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms both their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about far more than surfing. Chasing Mavericks was made with the help of some of the biggest names in the surfing world, and features some of the most mind-blowing real wave footage ever captured on film.


What a fantastic movie!  I absolutely love it and not just because Gerard Butler is in it . This movie is very well done. I am not usually into "surfer" movies and I didn't really expect I would like it but I absolutely enjoyed this one and it made me cry.

I highly recommend this movie.

Chasing Mavericks  is available now on Blu-ray and DVD.

Professional Grievers by Mickey J. Corrigan (eBook review)

Until he gets hired to attend funerals for Florida's most unpopular dead people, Seymour Allen has no life. When he meets a mobster's gorgeous girlfriend, things begin to heat up.

They say opposites attract. Professional Grievers mates noir with romance, a beautiful young woman with a depressed older man, and humor with pathos to create a surprising, funny, sexy little love story.

Seymour Allen's life had ground down to a dull bore. Lonely, self-medicating, and wallowing in self-pity, he's in dire need of a stiletto kick in the butt. Then the weirdly generous Raymond C. Dasher hires Seymour to attend the death ceremonies of the not-so-dearly departed.

As Raymond explains to Seymour, some people have so few friends they are willing to hire an audience for their own funeral. Working as a professional griever, Seymour's life picks up. Fascinated and often moved to tears, he frequents local chapels and cemeteries, posing as a bereaved friend of the departed.

At an Irish wake, he meets a hot redhead named Yvonne, the former mistress of the deceased; a man with the most dangerous kind of family. Sexy Yvonne needs to grieve her loss and Seymour offers a padded shoulder to cry on. Soon enough their friendship steams up. A lakeside distribution of ashes brings them closer together. Only in South Florida.


Mickey J. Corrigan does it again! This novella got me hooked from the very beginning. If you are into quick and easy dark comedy then you should get this one.

4 out of 5

The Time Tribe game review

The Time Tribe is the epic story of four kids who learn they are members of a secretive group called Time Tribe, which centers around a wily bird, a devious enemy, a mysterious manor house, a magical timekey, and a most peculiar elevator. The game is an episodic point-and-click adventure game that leads players through a virtual world filled with quirky characters, amazing artifacts, mysteries, puzzles, and minigames. E-comics and mini fiction round out the story, promising to keep players entertained and begging for more.
“We have been working on this project for years now and we’re so excited to bring it to the public,” said ThunderSnow founder, Karen Wehner. “Our game brings a unique blend of online adventure, offline play, and genuine engagement with history and the current state of humankind, while staying true to the gameplay practices we know kids love already, such as exploration, customization, and collection.”
The Time Tribe creates a perfect interactive adventure as it is based on real history and archaeology presented in a way that highlights the realities of everyday life, giving players tools for imagining their own roles on the great stage of human history. The free-to-play model provides users the option to expand their gameplay further, both online and in real life, with print mailings, toy collectibles and more.


The Time Tribe a fun free-to-play game that is fun and challenging that is rated E for Everyone. It has mini games that are challenging and the graphics are pretty decent.
If you have a child who loves this kind of game then I think they will love this game. 

I give this game 4 out of 5

THE MAD MAX TRILOGY Collection on Blu-ray June 4th

Are any of my readers Mad Max trilogy fans or know someone who is a fan? If so I am sure you will want to know about it. 


Mel Gibson Stars in the Franchise that Made Him a Star

Mad Max, the sci-fi franchise that introduced Mel Gibson to the world, will come together for the first time as a Blu-ray collection when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) debuts the Mad Max Trilogy on June 4th.

The three films – Mad Max (1979), Mad Max Road Warrior (1982) and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) – are all set in the near-future in Australia. From the very first film, Oscar® winner George Miller (Happy Feet, 2006) proved a master at creating the gritty, bleak dystopian world and staging the incredible car stunts and crashes in the era when stuntmen, not computers, achieved the effects. All three movies starred Mel Gibson, virtually unknown until after the second film, as Max Rockatansky, a highway cop traveling through the Outback in a society descending into chaos. The films started Gibson on his road to international superstardom, led to his signature Lethal Weapon series, and later two Academy Awards® for his roles as producer and director of Braveheart (1995).

This must-own collection for action fans is available in limited premium tin packaging and sure makes a perfect gift for Father’s Day. The collection will sell for $49.99 SRP on Blu-ray .

About The Films
Mad Max (1979)
George Miller's first entry in the trilogy, Mad Max packs brutal action and insane stunts as it follows the inevitable downfall of relentless cop Max Rockatansky (Gibson) in a world gone mad. Living on the edge of an apocalypse, Max is ready to run far away from it all with his family. But when he experiences an unfortunate encounter with a motorcycle gang and its menacing leader, the Toecutter, his retreat from the madness of the world is now a race to save his family's life.

Mad Max Road Warrior (1982)
The sequel to Mad Max, Mad Max Road Warrior provides action-packed, “automotive” entertainment, telling the story of a selfish-turned-selfless hero and his efforts to protect a small camp of desert survivors and defend an oil refinery under siege from a ferocious marauding horde that plunders the land for gasoline.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)
Mel Gibson returns for his third go-round as the title hero who takes on the barbarians of the post-nuclear future - and this time becomes the savior of a tribe of lost children. Music superstar Tina Turner co-stars as Aunty Entity, a power-mad dominatrix determined to use Max to tighten her stranglehold on Bartertown, where fresh water, clean food and gasoline are worth more than gold.

the new Gluten Free Grill Fish line from BlueWater Seafoods review and giveaway (Canada ONLY)

I was recently asked to review the new  Gluten-Free BlueWater Seafoods. We are not huge on fish but once in a while we will eat fish just to change things up a little bit. 

There are a bunch of Gluten-Free fish that you can pick from  like :
Garlic & Herb Grill Fillets, Lemon Herb Grill Fillets, Lemon Pepper Grill Fillets, Italian Herb Grill Fillets, Garlic & Herb Grill Salmon, Lemon Herb Grill Salmon, Roasted Garlic & Herb Grill Tilapia, Classic Grill Tilapia and  Classic Grill Haddock

I picked the Classic Grill Haddock because I really like Haddock and haven't had any in a few years. 

BlueWater Seafoods have a bunch of recipes in their site.  I made Grilled Haddock Broccoli Penne recipe that is on their site but I changed it a little bit.  Here is the recipe:

Grilled Haddock Broccoli Penne

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 2

  • 2 BlueWater Classic Grill Haddock Fillets
  • 4 oz penne pasta (or  gluten free pasta)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable or olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

1. Prepare BlueWater Classic Grill Haddock Fillets and pasta according to package instructions and cut each fillet into 4 pieces.
2. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes and sauté onion and garlic 5 minutes, add broccoli, sauté 7 minutes, add pasta and remove from heat.
3. Combine remaining ingredients with broccoli mixture, arrange fish pieces over pasta and serve immediately.

I didn't have any Parmesan cheese so I added some mozzarella cheese and I put more than 2 Tbsp and I added a bit of parsley to it as well.

This recipe was so very delicious. My husband and I loved it so much and we decided I will make it again in the future.

Flicker “How Much Are You Willing to Forget?” CD Review

Flicker is a progressive rock band that  has just recently released their debut album. Their music is kind of like Genesis, Pink Floyd and Radiohead and I think if you like those bands I am pretty sure you will like Flicker.

I for one absolutely love progressive rock and I love Flicker's music. I have listened to their cd a few times since I received it 2 weeks ago and I admit that Flicker is now my new favourite band. All the songs are very well done. 

I highly recommend this CD. 

Check them out.  I have posted all their links.

NAAT Brazilian Keratin collection review

NAAT Brazilian Keratin collection restores and intensifies your hair's nutritional balance, leaving it incredibly smooth, strong and flexible. Unlike typical animal-based keratins, our exclusive Green Keratin formula stays in your hair longer and is more resistant to rinsing. Promotes vibrancy and hydration, giving hair a natural, healthy shine. Products include: Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Mask, Leave-In, and Serum. 


I am not sure if it is just because my hair is so long and thick and also damaged but these products didn't really work great for my hair and I don't really like the smell of them either. The only product I liked was the Serum because I love the smell ( smells like strawberries) and it made my hair shiny and soft. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Grip Folio iPad case from domeo (review and giveaway)

Last November my husband bought me a iPad 2 as a early Christmas give because my old iPad wasn't working anymore.  I do try to be careful with it because it is expensive but I am one of those people who have butter fingers and drop stuff  all the time so I need a case for my iPad so I was very happy to have the chance to review a iPad case.

I am one of those people who pretty much take the iPad everywhere I go. I even take it outside with me when I outside with the dog and I admit I dropped my old iPad while I was outside. I have went outside with this my iPad when it is in this case and it is so perfect for me because it has a handle that you put your hand in so no more dropping it.

I had picked the blue/grey one because I absolutely love blue and I just love the colour of this case. It is different from my husband's case and now we can't mistake mine for his anymore. I absolutely love the grey inside because it is so soft.

The iPad fit perfectly in the case and I have no problems pressing the volume buttons and the top button at all and no issues to plug in the iPad as well . I do have to take the iPad out of it's case to put on the dock that I have but if you just plug it in the wire that came with the iPad you don't have to take the case off at all.

Check out domeo's site and I bet you will be able to find a case that is the best case for you.

You can pruchase a domeo case online at domeo's site or online at Sam's Club (currently only sold online)

de-cluttering your DVDs,Blu-rays,CDs and video game library

Well Spring is soon coming and for some people it means spring cleaning.  You know that time of year where you de-clutter your house and throw out and/or donate your unwanted things.  

This year I have decided that I will  be going through all of our DVDs, Blu-rays and our video games because I have noticed we have doubles of some movies and we have some video games we will never play again. I can't believe how many DVDs Blu-rays, and video games we have bought during the past few years and honestly we do not have room for all of them.

Usually when I have DVDs or Blu-rays I do not want anymore I give them to one of my sisters or donate them but it would be great to make money for my old unwanted DVDs,Blu-rays,  CDs and video games especially since these days money is tight. There is a site that  you can sell your unwanted Dvds, Blu-rays, CDs and video games. Sure you could try to sell them at stores that buy used goods but if you have old xbox games or PS2 games  they might not even take them because they are old  but you can sell them online at It is super simple too. All you do is enter the barcodes from each of the DVDs, CDs and Games that you want to sell and their Valuation Engine will get you a instant price for them and the shipping is free. How cool is that?

Dealing Her Final Card by Jennie Lucas (ebook review)

If my card is higher, you’ll belong to me, obeying my every whim, for as long as I desire.”

As Bree Dalton hears the icy words of Russian Prince Vladimir Xendzov, the man whose ring she once wore and life she once ruined, she nervously accepts the biggest wager of her life. Her body for a million dollars.

Bree knows better than to doubt the steely ruthlessness of this man. With everything to lose and the weight of Vladimir’s gaze upon her, she will have to play the best she’s ever played—or run the risk of losing herself completely….

Only the most innocent touch can melt their ice-cold hearts.


For some reason I have been reading a lot of Harlequin books. I haven't posted reviews for them on here but I have posted them on Goodreads.

This book is one of the better Harlequin books I have read recently. It got me hooked from the very beginning and I very much enjoyed reading this book.  Just like any other Harlequin Presents novels this was predictable but the story is good and you can very well imagine what is going on in the book.

Neater Feeder Giveaway

Hey everyone! If you have pets then you will want to enter this. It is US ONLY.

This Review/Giveaway is done by Kathy's Freebies & Savings.


 Do you have cats or dogs? If you do then you know how much of a mess they can make. I have two cats that are usually very lazy cats. They just like to lay around the house and do nothing. Sometimes they will get up to play but otherwise they just lay around the house. When the cats get up to go get a drink or eat, they usually make a mess. I've seen water spilled on the floor as well as food. Usually its food that's all over the floor. It would be nice to have something that would help with pets not making such a mess. Luckily there is, and it's called the Neater Feeder.

 The Neater Feeder is designed to take out the mess from meal times. It helps to reduce the mess and damage to floors. The protective walls help to save your floors from water and food damage. All the food gets caught in the upper reservoir and the water will get caught in the lower reservoir. Neater Feeders are available in three sizes for dogs and one size for the cats. pet 
 You're able to attach legs to the bottom of the feeder to add height. Adding the legs seemed to make it difficult for my cats to eat or drink so I decided to keep the legs off and it worked out great. The rubber inserts prevent the feeder from scratching the floor. I've had cat dishes that move around when the cats are eating or drinking. They can cause unwanted scratches on the floor 104_3325 
 As you can tell my cat really enjoys the Neater Feeder. As soon as I set it up he came running to get a drink of water. I actually have two cats and they both really love it. My cats are usually messy eaters and have food all over the floor after their done eating. With the Neater Feeder there is no food anywhere but inside the feeder. I love how it catches the food and water instead of letting it get on the floor. Wouldn't you love to not have to keep cleaning up after your pets meal times? The Neater Feeder has helped me keep the pets feeding time area a lot cleaner. All the food and water gets caught in the feeder so it's never on the floor. What a great way to keep your pets feeding area cleaner. Want to win one for one of your pets? Just enter with the form below for a chance to win one . 

This giveaway is open to US ONLY . Good luck!

Dream Job by Mickey J. Corrigan (eBook review)

He's the hot, sexy man of her dreams. And her new boss. But someone else is dreaming about her, someone even more dangerous. *** After Adrianna sleeps with her hunky boss, she has to face him every day at the office of DreamCorp International. She has to test the company's dream software with him in the office hot tub. She has to ignore the fact that his touch drives her to peaks of ecstasy she's never experienced before. And that she's fallen madly in love with him. To make her life in tropical Florida even more confusing, Adrianna is plagued by disturbing dreams. Davis, one of those forgettable men she'd rather not think about anymore, a geeky guy she never should have slept with, stalks her. Davis has other ideas. He still wants her, and he plans to have her-in the murky dream world they appear to share. Something strange is happening to Adrianna. And it's making her wonder about her dreams. Are dreams more than a random rehash of day-to-day images, repressed sexual urges, and memory fragments? Could it be that dreams are the entry way to another world? A real world? A hyper real world? Whether she wants to or not, Adrianna is about to find out all about the dream world. After all, she's landed her Dream Job. And she's in love with the man of her dreams.


This book is a little different but I very much enjoyed it. It is a quick and easy read that got me drawn into the story and I couldn't put it down. Very well written.

I recommend this.

HTC Desire HD case from Mobile Fun

I have recently received this purple Flexishield Skin for HTC Desire HD to review. I absolutely love this . It fits perfectly and I had no problems putting it on my phone. It fits well around the  camera,flash, microphone and such. It covers the top button and the volume buttons but it is alright because it doesn't affect the use of those buttons at all. I have already dropped my phone once since I have this skin on it and it did protect it. I have to say I love my new HTC Desire HD skin.

Mobile Fun also has cases for newer phones like Galaxy Note 2 case and so many others that there is a case or skin for everyone. I will be buying case or skin from Mobile Fun when I get a new phone or when I have a new e-Reader in the future.

SKYFALL (movie review)

In SKYFALL Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past returns to haunt her.  With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond.  007 takes to the shadows – aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) – following a trail to the mysterious Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.

Skyfall is now available in stores near you. 


My husband and I love James Bond movies and we love Skyfall. I personally think that Skyfall is the best James Bond movie out so far. It is action packed and extremely well done. Awesome graphics, the sound quality is fantastic and the acting was awesome and ofcourse the storyline was fantastic as well. I now can't wait for the next James Bond movie to be out. 

I highly recommend that if you buy or rent it that you watch the features. Oh and ofcourse I highly recommend Skyfall to everyone who are James Bond fans. 

I give this 5 out of 5
