Polliwalks Review & Giveaway

Once upon a time,
children's shoes were taking themselves a bit too seriously,
and feet were not having any fun.
Then one day, a new brand named Polliwalks™ was created.
Polliwalks™ brought fun back to children's feet. All the children loved their Polliwalks™.
They took them home, quickly became best friends, and lived happily every after.
When was the last time a shoe looked you in the eye and made you smile?
Feet have never had so much fun!
Go on, go outside and play!
I was sent a pair of those adorable bubblegum kitty Polliwalks shoes and a brand new style, the Firefly to review. Cami absolutely adores the Kitty Polliwalks! Since we have been getting snow in Michigan already, she hasn't worn them outside yet. Since they haven't been outside, she has been wearing them every single day in the house. She has even worn them to bed a few nights, lol. She says they are warm, comfortable and so cute. She named them, but I can't remember her kitties name right now.

Book Review ~ A Jolly Good Fellow

Do you love to read, do you love Christmas? If so, I have a great book recommendation for you! A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW by Stephen V. Masse.

Two weeks before Christmas, Duncan Wagner gets into his car
for another attempt at kidnapping the son of his most despised enemy,
State Representative Win Booker. When he drives into the wealthy Boston suburb, he is surprised to find the boy hitchhiking. So begins Wagner’s quest for revenge as he finds himself face to face with a real boy, and without a clue about how to run a kidnapping. Wagner, a self-styled charity Santa Claus, comes to realize that eleven year old Gabriel Booker is truly a runaway, much more curious than scared. Gabriel has no idea who Duncan Wagner is—or could be.
