Sodastream Fountain Jet Soda Maker Starter Kit PICK ME!

Have you seen this handy, dandy perfect machine??!  It's called the SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Maker!

My husband is the soda drinker in this house, and unfortunately it costs a fortune.  This machine would be perfect in my house, plus it would save me LOADS of money...I hope!!!!

I visited my BzzAgent today and saw that this was the Daily Buzz for today, so I'm trying to BZZZZZZZ my way in!!!

SodaStream allows you to prepare great-tasting, fresh, fizzy beverages precisely to your taste - with no bottles, cans, or electricity! With the SodaStream Jet Starter Kit, you've got everything you need to turn tap water into sparkling water in 30 seconds--saving you money while also helping you stay environmentally friendly. The starter kit includes SodaStream Jet soda maker in black/silver, one carbonator (good for making up to 60L of soda), and one BPA-free plastic bottle.
So not only would I be saving money, I'd be also keeping the planet a little more "greener"!
Please pick me, it would definitely get so much use in this home!

My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software Review and Giveaway

I've always wanted to scrapbook, but really never found the time.  I had great intentions though.  We went to Florida for our first ever trip to Walt Disney World as a family.  When I came home I was off to the craft store super excited to buy all things scrapbooking for our memory book, needless to say, two years later they are still in the bag. 

Recently I was introduced to My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software.  This software has been rated as the #1 scrapbooking software and the best seller on Amazon.  It is very easy to install, and simple to use.  You can create digital scrapbooks, photobooks, videos, cards, calendar, and some great gifts.

After I installed it, as simple as it is, I still needed help. has some great tutorials on their site that help you with the process of getting started.  Once you get started, the creativity is endless. Below are some of the pages that I had so much fun creating using My Memories Suite. 


I was also able to create a card for Halloween

My Opinion

I absolutely love the idea of this scrapbook software.  Since I have no place in my home for crafting, nor the mess I love the idea of doing everything on my computer.  The scrapbook software is simple to learn, and fun to create beautiful pages of your memories.  I like that I have the option of either printing my pages at home, or having it printed professionally.   The scrapbook software comes preloaded with many digital papers and embellishments but you can also purchase many more at .  I am really excited now to get my Walt Disney World pictures on paper, and in a book.  Thank you for making the task so much more simpler.

You can purchase your very own My Memories Suite with this special code ( STMMMS72801).  Use of this code provides a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software (ONLY good for My Memories Suite v2) and a $10 coupon for the store - $20 value

My Memories is graciously giving away a copy of the above digital scrapbooking software for you to download and start creating awesome memories.

Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers Review And Free Coupon For You To Try

I was given the opportunity to sample and share Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers Original Flavor.  They are a gluten-free, all natural, cholesterol free, wheat free, and low in saturated fat cracker.  The name "Crunchmaster" speaks for itself, they definitely do not lack in the crunch factor.

Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers
  • Brown Rice Flour
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Potato Starch
  • Quinoa Seeds
  • Safflower Oil
  • Flax Seeds
  • Amarnth Seeds 
  • Tamari Soy Sauce Powder

 With only 140 Calories per 15 crackers these are a healthy and delicious alternative to regular snacks.

 Available in four flavors


Rosemary and Olive Oil, 

Roasted Garlic 

Toasted Onion.

My opinion:

When I normally think of a product being gluten-free I think of tasteless cardboard flavor but not these crackers.  The Multi-Seed Original Crackers were very tasty, crunchy and delicious.  Although, the crackers are a bit on the salty side, we still enjoyed them and believe the stated 15 cracker serving size is perfect. We ate these just plain right out of the bag, but would be perfect paired with your favorite healthy dip.

These can be purchased online or at stores such as Walmart, Whole Foods (select regions), Costco (select regions), Safeway, Publix, Sam's Club, Wegmans, and others. 

For more information and to see if a store near you has them visit

I am giving away an extra FREE coupon for one FREE 3.5 oz- 4.5oz bag or box of Crunchmaster crackers (max value $3.49 expiration 3/31/2012) for one lucky winner to try. Ending 9/28/11 @ 5pm EST

Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner Review

Would you like to simplify your life just a bit? Would you like the ugly chore of cleaning the toilet to be just a bit easier? Well, that is where Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner comes in. All you do is just step, spray and walk away twice a day, how easy is that?!

  • Powerful formula tackles toilet rings, limescale, and hard water marks
  • refill last up to 30 days when used as directed
  • Comes in two pleasant scents, Fresh Mountain Morning and Sparkling Spring
  • reusable sleeve covers the can
  • no batteries required
  • safe for septic systems 
  • features a 360-degree action sprayer that cover the complete bowl
  • Cost $9.99 for a starter unit and $3.99 for the refills

My Opinion
Set up of the unit was super simple and only took about 5 minutes and the unit fits discreetly next to your toilet. I didn't read the directions fully and it does state to start with a clean toilet which I did not (guess I was too excited to try this product).  Overall, even though my toilet started out "dirty", it has kept my toilet clean and the Fresh Mountain Morning scent smells so nice.  I definitely will continue using this product to make my task of cleaning the toilet a little bit more simpler.

For more information check out there you'll find special offers and cleaning tips.
