Review ~ Costume Supercenter

I was invited to review a costume recently from Costume Supercenter.   My first choices were something from Alice in Wonderland for one of my girls, but everything I wanted has a shipping date of September 20th.  Since I'm doing the review now, I ended up picking something for myself.


I chose the Witchy La Bouf Pink Adult Costume. Isn't it super cute?


Bring witch apparel into the 21st century with this sexy costume. Costume features a tutu-like dresswith corset style front and pointy witch's hat al l with pink trim.


Once I had my selection,  I was shipped the costume speedy quick.  I was surprised at how fast it arrived.  It was sent just like how you buy them in the store, in the plastic hanging bag.  It was shipped in a tyvek envelope.  These are the best thing for shipping clothes in, they do not get wet and they are really hard to tear open.
The costume is a great quality, that will last for years. 
Costumer service is excellant.  Plus the huge selection and great pricing is hard to beat.  On top of that, they offer free returns and exchanges.  You can't fail when buying from Costume Supercenter.  
This costume is the one I really wanted for my 13 year old daughter.  It is the new for 2010 Teen Mad Hatter costume.  Isn't it the cutest thing ever???   I've been wanting my little one to be Alice for awhile now, so want to do a theme Halloween this year.  I was going to talk my oldest into being the Red Queen but fell in love with the Mad Hatter Costumes, there are some cute ones.  Go ahead and browse Costume Supercenter.  There are several ways of checking out what they offer.  They have an amazing search, plus tons of category options, etc.  You can also browse what is new for 2010 (the majority of those costumes are available around 9/20)Any ideas what your kids are being this year?  Do you dress up as an adult, or just let that be the fun for kids?

This post was written for Family Review Network and Costume Supercenter who
provided the complimentary product in exchange for my honest reviwew.

Nickelodeon’s The Penguins of Madagascar & General Mills ~ Closed

Nickelodeon and General Mills have teamed up to bring some Summer fun to our breakfast tables this year with The Penguins of Madagascar.  


Inside specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals, you’ll “commence operations” with one of five characters from The Penguins of Madagascar; Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, Private or King Julien. Each participating cereal contains one character launcher with mission details outlined on the back of the box including: 


  • Dive In, Soldier – Set an empty plastic cereal bowl on the table and try to pop your launcher into it. Wear a helmet or you’ll be squid bait.
  • Longest Propulsion Launcher – Challenge your troops to see who can launch their character the furthest. Go long or go back to the zoo.
  • Target Practice – Create a landing zone with a spoon and try to strategically drop your character into the sweet spot. Hit the target or go back to the drawing board.
  • Clear the Wall – Do you have enough projectile pop to push your launcher over the top of the box? Proceed launchin’ troops, earn those wings!
Each character is unique and has their own specific role, and together, they’re a team with lots of character. With five character launchers to collect, make a splash this summer and try to successfully complete all of their missions. 



My daughter LOVES The Penguins of Madagascar, so she was super excited to see them in her cereal.  She has been playing with the toy all summer.  Plus it is nice to actually get a toy INSIDE the box, instead of having to send away for something!


Great news, I have a prize pack to giveaway to one of my readers.  Just tell me which character from Penguins of Madagascar is your child’s favorite? or Which episode makes them laugh the hardest?

Nature Made SAM-e Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED

Nature Made SAM-e Complete, 400mg Tablets, 36 Tablets
As we get older our bodies start making less SAM-e, a naturally occurring compound, which ultimately works to maintain a balanced mood. Nature Made SAM-e Complete helps replenish your body's natural levels of SAM-e and when taken daily it can begin to help naturally restore a healthy mood in as little as 7 to 14 days. 

SAM-e helps other molecules in the brain do their jobs by making you feel like your normal self. When SAM-e levels run low, those other molecules can’t do their jobs as effectively, and you can feel out of sorts from a mood standpoint.


I really like taking SAM-e along with my other vitamin routine.  I have thyroid issues, and it really seems to help level out my mood swings.  The Nature Made SAM-e doesn't bother my stomach like some supplements have in the past.  I take it every morning, and really have noticed a difference.  


Nature Made SAM-e complete recently launched a really cool campaign.   It is called Give a Smile, they are working with Dream Factory, the second largest children’s wish-granting organization in the U.S., to grant the wishes of three children suffering from a critical or chronic illness. Through this campaign SAM-e will donate to a child’s wish for every social action you or your readers complete (like uploading an image to their mosaic). The more actions, the more SAM-e will donate. 

For more information, please visit www.sam-e.com.

You can find at your local drug store, grocery store, etc.  You can also like always find on amazon ~ Nature Made SAM-e Complete 200 mg - 90 Enteric Coated Tablets

Giveaway ~


I have a 3 month supply of Nature Made SAM-e to giveaway to one lucky reader!   Leave a comment on this post with why you want to try out Sam-e, or if you already use it.
