Costume Discounters Pirate Costume Review

Costume Discounters Pirate Costume Review


I received the Adult Costume Discounters Pirate Wench Vixen Costume to review. My daughter was so excited because it was the one she wanted. So I gave it to her. The fit was great. The sizing very near to perfect and the material was a good grade of material. Construction was good. I didn’t see any seams that weren’t perfect.

 

It is a black and red double lace up corset one piece dress. I love the bright colors and the design was perfect. The off the shoulder sleeves and the ties in the front were very attractive. And the crushed velvet like material was soft. The sleeves were poofy and that long strands that were to be tied into a bow. It added to the design.
 
 
The back was nice and the zipper was placed correctly. We had no problems with the dress.

 
 This was a nice fit for a full-figured woman. It is a very attractive and sexy costume.We got this in extra large but it is available in small, medium and large too.
 
 I would recommend this costume for Halloween. Order early to be sure and get the costume you want. And check out the other costumes for the family. They have adult,children, and even pet costumes. They stock all the accessories you could want to complete your costume. This can be your one stop Halloweeen shopping place. And delivery is quick.
 
 I received this costume for review. All opinions and photos are my own.

PandaBoy Challenge Accepted Review

 
PandaBoy Challenge Accepted
iPhone App

I am reviewing the app for my iPhone called PandaBoy: Challenge Accepted. It is a 2D old school adventure game. It is a cute animated game for the iPhone with brightly colored graphics.

 

The app was very easy to install. As usual, it loads from Itunes.

 

PandaBoy is a little boy in a panda outfit who is brave enough to help save the Olympics. The Olympic flame had blown out during a storm.The tutorial guides you to help Pandaboy take the flame to London.

 

The adventure continues with PandaBoy jumping, spinning and moving to the target with fun for the iphone app player.  You have options like pausing the game, restarting and turning off the sound. I usually play my games with no sound so I don’t bother anyone else. After each level you are awarded with medals that you earned in that level.

 
Download this game today and start enjoying the escapades of PandaBoy as he saves the London Olympics. You can be the hero.

Have a real look at PandaBoy on YouTube.

You can download this app at itunes.

Elfishki Storybook Review and Giveaway 9/13


Elfishki Storybook:
The Performance in the Fountain

This is about the Elfishki Storybook for the iPad. It is an interactive program designed for children aged 6-9. The bright colors and hands-on capabilities make it a favorite with the children the first time they use it.

As part of the Pitch List reviewers, I downloaded The Performance in the Fountain on my boyfriend’s iPad. It was easy to install. I opened it and saw the opening page.

The books are in English and Russian. I love that there is a button to have it read to your child. Or your child can read it himself.
As your child  explores this book, they will be attracted to the bright colors, the wonderful illustrations and the story itself. With the interactive pages, your child can entertain themselves in a hands-on manner and learn at the same time. There is a game they can play over and over again and it has two skill levels.
Elfishki are little fairy tale creatures who live on the beautiful Rainbow Island in the middle of the Sparkling Sea.
Rinka, an Elfishki, preferred magic tricks over her school work. She tried performing every day. The children liked it but not the teachers. Rinka’s mom was being contacted a lot to make Rinka stop.
During school break Rinka’s mother needed someone to watch Rinka. Only a kind hearted cat, Mr. Thomas, who lived in Elfishtown agreed to watch her.
Rinka had never been to Elfishtown and grew bored just swimming in the town fountain. She was used to swimming in the Sparkling Sea. Even Mr. Thomas wouldn’t join her because cats don’t like water!

Read more about Rinka and her quest for entertainment. This story is delightful, colorful, interactive and fun.
You can also preview it on Youtube.
At the end of the story, it gives you information on what the goals were when creating this series. It has information on more books for children and adults. Very clever development.
I have two of the free books on my iPhone. They are very handy to have when I have to entertain my grandchildren and want a story that is fun and interactive. These are the ones I have:
Also check out their back to school sale going on now.

Butt Bench Review

15″ Butt Bench Review

I had the opportunity to receive a Butt Bench for review. I was so excited. I requested and received a  12″ Pink Pine Butt Bench.  I was lucky enough to also receive a 15″ one. About the same time, we acquired a Doberman puppy. I thought that the 15″ butt bench could work out for us to bathe the puppy. It is so awkward to lean over the side of a tub to bathe an animal or child. I love the way it simplifies the bath.
My boyfriend Jake loves the new dog. He wanted to bathe her and try out the Butt Bench. I got such a kick out of watching him that I had to get out my camera. He made the mistake of leaving the water running when he put Izzy in and received a kick from her because it scared her. But after that, it was smooth sailing. She even seemed to like it. And Jake loved the hands on approach. He could restrain her without hurting her. It worked like a charm.
Our other pets were intrigued and had to peek in to see what was going on. It was cute watching the kitten peek over the tub.
This bench fits across the tub resting on the sides of the tub. It has suction cups that adhere it to the wall. The construction is superb. It held the weight of a grown man with ease.

As you can see, this was a very successful undertaking. Both Jake and Izzy were happy and safe after the bath. The Butt Bench works well for this activity.

Butt Bench® can hold up to 300 Lbs. It will fit a standard size tub. The suction cups will only work on smooth flat-surfaced bathroom tiles or wall panels. The suction does not work on the grout lines.
Butt Bench offers a return on defective and unused products.

I am trying out the 12″ Butt Bench myself. I don’t need quite as much bench space to shave my legs. And I don’t wiggle around as much as you would bathing an active dog (usually, lol). So a separate review will follow on the 12″ Butt Bench.

Disclaimer: I received two benches for review. All opinions and photos in this review were my own.

Oofos Review and Giveaway

I have looked all over for a comfortable pair of slides. With my job and my animals, I am constantly slipping in and out of shoes and I need them to fit right. I was searching websites to see what was available and happened upon the Oofos website. Of course, the name attracted my attention. I had never heard of shoes called Oofos.
I then researched some more and found out that I may have been the last in my group to learn about this product. All of the reports I read about these shoes was favorable. Actually, more than favorable. Everyone LOVED them.
So I was lucky enough to receive a pair to review. I requested the slide even though they also have thongs available. Although they come in black which I prefer, I received the Ooahh slides in mocha.  The Ooriginal thongs also come in tangerine and fushia colors.
The OOfoam conforms to my feet and gives me the support I am looking for. The ease of putting them on and off suited my needs. And since I live at the beach, they are just what I wanted to walk along the water.

Feel the OO!

These shoes are flexible and lightweight. They are durable, absorb impact and are machine washable.
These shoes are available in men and women’s sizes.

I am lucky enough to have a pair of slides and you can win a pair of your own. Please enter the giveawaybelow. The winner receive a pair of their choice. Enter today!!! Sorry but only available in the U.S.

CollageIt Giveaway

CollageIt by Pearl Mountain Technology
I just received my CollageIt software. As you can see, I loved making my first collage. Looks good for a beginner. Just goes to show how easy it is to use. The hardest part was deciding which color to use for the background. And that was simple enough with a drop down window.
I went to the zoo on Monday. I was looking forward to getting the CollageIt software so I was taking pictures with the purpose of making this collage. I take so many pictures and I usually just file them on my computer and look at them occasionally (rarely). This program took my photographs and displayed them for me in a way I can enjoy.  The pictures are clear. You can crop the picture in each frame and even switch places. Then when you are happy with your photo you can export it to your computer, Facebook, Flickr, or email it. There is even an option to set it as your wallpaper. I love sharing my pictures with my friends and family. And every time I look at the collage, it brings back the memory of my happy day at the zoo.
This program is available for Windows or Mac users.
Each winner will receive one  (1) CollageIt Pro licensed code valued at $19.95.
