Electrolux Virtual Lemonade Stand Campaign

With summer, one of the things I think of is Lemonade stands. I have fond memories of holding them, and my kids do as well. It is something they look forward to each summer.

Electrolux and Kelly Ripa must feel the same way because they are kicking off their Virtual Lemonade Stand campaign to drive awareness and raise funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Starting this month, you can visit to design and open your own virtual lemonade stand and even pick the flavors of lemonade you want to feature at your stand, like Sparkling Ginger or Rosemary Watermelon. It is super easy to make, it took me only a couple minutes!

For every stand opened, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). In addition, you can help the cause even more by buying and sending virtual glasses of lemonade to your friends and family, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting OCRF. This is a great way to celebrate the beginning of summer, let friends know you’re thinking of them, and support a great cause.

Even better, just for opening your stand, and then again every day that you log in and visit your stand, you will be entered to win a new French Door Refrigerator from Electrolux – perfect for storing your own pitchers of lemonade. When others donate to your stand, they will also have a chance to win.

The new French Door Refrigerator by Electrolux has some cool new features that make it a great refrigerator for entertaining. There is the Perfect Temp Drawer™, which provides storage for any number of items that you want to keep at the ideal temperature. It’s also a large enough refrigerator to store everything from party platters to juice boxes. The French Door Refrigerator also offers double the ice so there is always enough ice on hand to fill your pitchers of lemonade.

In addition, Mom Central will be giving away one French Door Refrigerator to a member of our community!* To enter, simply go to and (1) tell us about the lemonade stand you designed on the Electrolux site and which flavors you are ‘selling’ and (2) share your own “summer entertaining” tips/ideas. Mom Central will pick one lucky winner in a random drawing from all entries received! How cool is that?

* All taxes, including but not limited to federal, state and local taxes, and any other costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance are the sole responsibility of the winner, including any costs of installation.

Review ~ Katka by Stephen R. Meier

I had read a review on Katka awhile ago that I really enjoyed. The book sounded really good, so when I was actually asked to review it myself ~ I was thrilled. Normally I got asked to review books I had never heard of, so it was nice to get a chance at one already on my TBR pile :)

Katka is a novella by Stephen Meier. It is a gritty, edgy novel of greed, love, and swindles gone very wrong. When Gavin and his girlfriend team with her best friend Simona to pull a phony mail order bride scam in the Czech Republic, Gavin gets in way over his head in the high-stakes and dangerous business of selling wives. When Gavin talks Katka, his girlfriend, into becoming part of the merchandise, planning to bait-n-switch the client in the end, things go awry and Katka disappears with the client. Partnering with the jealous and volatile Simona, Gavin begins to lament this risky life he has chosen, but finds the money is something he can’t walk away from. Gavin’s doubts grow; the con begins to consume him, and he finds himself thinking of Katka, the fate he dealt her, and whether he can undo the biggest mistake of his life. Written with staccato grit and streetwise savvy, Katka reads like a Quentin Tarantino movie. Stephen Meier’s work will leave you begging for more.

Katka is a quick 108 page read. I would have had it done in one night if I didn't pick it up so late. I quickly finished it the very next day. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. I don't think I have read a book specific to mail order brides yet, so it was very interesting to me. The language is gritty, but that has never bothered me. It is also needed for this type book. I thoroughly enjoyed Katka and would recommend it.

About the Author
Stephen Ross Meier was born in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, the first of many places he would live worldwide. He received his Bachelors in English from Arizona State University. He currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Thank you to Tracee at Pump Up Your Book Promotion and Stephen R. Meier for giving me the opportunity to read this novella.

Don't Bite Me! Patch Review & Giveaway

I love summer, but honestly I am not an outdoors person at all. Why, I hate bugs especially mosquitoes. Mom Fuse brought to my attention an amazing product called the Don't Bite Me! Patch.

This patch has two ingredients only!

Product Features

  • Waterproof
  • Lasts up to 36 hours
  • Total Body Coverage
  • Clear, Discreet Patch
  • Safe for Children
  • No sprays
  • No lotions
  • No towelettes
  • Natural
  • Simple
  • Safe

How It Works
The Don't Bite Me! Patch uses a patent pending technology and formula to deliver natural ingredients into the body via a topical patch application. Only two ingredients are in the patch, Vitamin B1 and Aloe. Simply apply one patch two hours prior to enjoying time outdoors(it takes that long to become effective).The Vitamin B1 then travels head to toe. Then the body's natural response to excess Vitamin B1 is to excrete it through the pores, covering up the carbon dioxide that we emit naturally. (Carbon dioxide is what attracts insects.) This process makes an invisible barrier around the body, making the user unattractive to insects. The Aloe serves as an anti-inflammatory agent, minimizing the reaction in the event you do experience a bite. The topical patch application is what makes the formula so effective. Taking Vitamin B1 in mega doses does not deliver the same effect as our patch because the stomach digests the Vitamin B1 prior to it entering the bloodstream, therefore losing efficiency. The topical patch provides a much more effective, consistent release of Vitamin B1 into the body, which is why it works so well.

I've only had one chance to try these out, my girls went to a night time bonfire. They came home with no bites, so I am assuming it works. I can't wait to keep trying this easy to use product this summer!

Great news, we have are also doing a giveaway with this review. Just head over to the sponsor website and look around. Come back here with something you want to buy that they sell or something you learned.
