Crayola Colour Alive Giveaway #ColourAlive

11th May 2015

Crayola-logo

Crayola comes out with fun new products every year, so I’m sharing some of their Spring 2015 virtual products that are now available. First up are the Crayola Colour Alive products.

colour-alive
To use the Crayola Colour Alive books, you will need to download the free Colour Alive app on your tablet or smartphone. Colour Alive books work as a traditional colouring book – you begin by colouring the pages with the included markers. Then, you then scan the coloured page using the app and click the 4D button and up pops this virtual image of your coloured image.

You can then interact with the image, take a pic, share it and/or save it.

Colour Alive is available in the titles shown above, as well as Minions and Monster High.

Another fun product are the Virtual Design & Drive and My Virtual Fashion Show. These products each have their own free apps that are required – Crayola Design & Drive and Crayola My Virtual Fashion Show.

crayola-products

These products are a little different in that you use the included pencil crayons to design the outfit or car, from various angles, and then photograph each of the angles, and the app puts it all together. Below, you can see that my daughter coloured the front of the outfits for the fashion show on the left, and the final virtual product on the right. It’s actually very cool. She really enjoys playing with it.

My eight year old really enjoyed playing with the virtual Crayola products, and I think they’re a great, affordable option for birthday prezzies for friends, fun and quiet for road and/or air travel or for some afternoon fun.

Want to try them out for yourself? I’m giving away a Crayola Virtual Products Prize Pack (valued at approx. $65) that includes all six products featured in this post – Four Colour Alive books, Virtual Design & Drive and Virtual Fashion Show. The giveaway is open to CANADIANS only and will run until Tuesday, May 19th, 2015. GOOD LUCK!!

Make Your Own Movie Moment With K-Y #giveaway

11th February 2015

my-boyfriend-colin-firthThere’s that moment in the movie Love Actually where Colin Firth (my Boyfriend and Special Valentine) goes to Portugal to find the girl he fell in love with. He walks into the restaurant where she’s a waitress, with her family and entire village following him. He then proceeds to speak to her in Portuguese, which he learned specifically so he could speak to her and ask her to marry him.

And then I died. Sigh.

It is one of my favourite movie moments because it’s sooooo romantic and sweet and if I close my eyes really tight, I successfully imagine myself as the lovely Portuguese girl who wins Colin Firth and his hotness in the end. A girl can dream/hallucinate.

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, it’s the perfect time (although really, ANY TIME is the perfect time) to make your own romantic moments. Of course, during those sexy times, there are certain things that make the sexy times even sexier – candles, music, designer handbags, another person and some Yours + Mine.

ky-yours-mineInsert lubricant segue here.

K-Y Yours + Mine is a couples lubricant that offers a delightful experience. They are applied individually but when mixed together, you experience heat and tingling and delightful times two. There’s no strong scent in either product, they’re not sticky or too thick, and they have long-lasting effects. They’re definitely a fun addition to a sexy time experience.

In honour of Valentine’s Day, I have a great prize pack for one lucky winner. The prize includes a $50 Cineplex gift card, a $50 Cara Foods (Montana’s, Kelsey’s etc) gift card, and your own K-Y Yours + Mine couple lubricant to enjoy your own special moment.

Enter below using Rafflecopter, letting me know one of your favourite romantic movie moments. The giveaway is open to Canadian residents only and ends Wednesday, February 18, 2015.

Good Luck and Happy Valentine’s Day.

Stream Into 2015 with Staples Canada #StreamInto2015

11th November 2014

Staples-Logo

If you know me personally, you know that I have a weird obsession with school supplies. And notebooks. And other things, but let’s just stick with the reason why I love Staples. Although I haven’t been in school for many, many years, I spend an obscene amount of time at Staples, looking at all the shiny things. It’s one of my happy places.

Not weird at all.

This will explain my joy of working with Staples this month, although our focus is on another one of my joys – movies.

We are a movie family – we tend to stick close to home, and when we have free time and especially during the weekend, we watch movies. Quite often, we will use a streaming media player to watch movies – super convenient and easy for the everyone in the family to use.

roku-3Staples Canada sent us a ROKU 3 Streaming Media Player (yes they sell more than just school supplies!) so that we could participate in their fun Stream Into 2015 campaign which is all about bringing family together during the holiday season, sharing holiday movie classics, and testing out some great media streamers for the holidays. We’re going to be spending this month watching many, many holiday movies using our new Roku 3 and by the end of the month, we’re going to choose our ULTIMATE HOLIDAY MOVIE.

Of course it’s only fair if I share the Staples love, and thanks to the lovely people at Staples, I have TWO Roku 3 Streaming Media Players to give away to TWO lucky people!!! To enter, check out the Rafflecopter below – I’ll be back on November 28th to reveal our Ultimate Holiday Movie and pick my two Roku 3 winners!!!

This giveaway is open to CANADIANS ONLY. GOOD LUCK!

Joe Fresh – Giveaway

28th October 2014

joe-fresh-logo

It’s SADLY that time of year again where the days are too short and it’s too cold to be anywhere but hiding in the house under warm blankets.

Unfortunately, most people have to leave the house to shuttle the little people to school or work or shop or buy their daily bucket of Starbucks coffee.

So, it feels like the perfect time to give away a $50 gc for Joe Fresh.

I was just there yesterday and noticed tons of great sweaters and accessories – I picked up a thick black infinity scarf which I may never take off.

I may have also picked up a new black cardigan because the fifty other ones I already have needed a new friend.

Oh and hello, have you seen the shoes? Very sexy sexy.

Movie Nights Are The Best

25th July 2014

The Husband and I love to watch movies. We’ve been known to watch several every week – yes we are party animals. Our clubbing days are clearly OVER.

It’s why I like giving away movies on my blog – I like to share my addictions. I’d give away every movie we watch if I could, but ain’t nobody got time for that.

So to celebrate the month of my birth, the lazy days of summer, cardigans, caffeine and the days of the week (I don’t really need a reason), I’m giving away two movies this time around.

300: Rise of an Empire

&

Winter’s Tale

Her – DVD/BluRay Giveaway

30th June 2014

Her-2014-movie-poster

Her stars Joaquin Phoenix (in a pornstache) and Scarlett Johansson’s voice in a beautifully bizarre film, which coincidentally won the 2014 Oscar for Best Original Screenplay (written and directed by Spike Jonze).

It’s super creative and strange and different and perfectly cast – I can’t imagine anyone else as Theodore but Joaquin Phoenix. Theodore makes his living writing personal letters for other people. He’s sad and heartbroken over the end of his relationship. His life changes when he purchases a new operating system that “promises to be an intuitive and unique entity in its own right. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet Samantha (Johansson), who is insightful, sensitive and funny. As her needs and desires grow in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.”

I watched it last week and I’m still thinking about this movie. It’s a bizarre one, that’s for sure.

Want to win a DVD/BluRay copy of your own? Enter below! Open to Canadian residents only.

Argo – Movie Review & Giveaway

12th March 2013

ARGO, directed by Ben Affleck, was the movie to see this year. It won 3 Oscars (including Best Picture) and received an amazing total of 58 nominations with 52 wins including the AFI Award, Golden Globe, Bafta Award, People’s Choice Award, and the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Picture.

On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, the Canadian and American governments ask the CIA to intervene. The CIA turns to their top “exfiltration” specialist, Tony Mendez, to come up with a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

I really enjoyed this movie – despite knowing the outcome of the story, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. It was a movie gut rot situation – the anticipation was killing me. I thought Ben Affleck was fantastic and I finally understood the facial hair/hair situation. The cast was incredible and the similarities between the actors and those they played was uncanny (check out the special features to see what I’m talking about). I adored Alan Arkin and John Goodman but they’re awesome in everything they do so no surprise there.

Visually, the movie is unbelievable in its accuracy and again, you have to watch the special features to really get an idea of how much detail went into making the movie really feel like the era it was portraying. Both my husband and I thought it was fantastic and a definite must see movie.

Favorite quote in the movie (this one’s easy): “Argo, f*ck yourself!”

GIVEAWAY!

I’m giving away an ARGO Blu-Ray combo pack.
