smiley 360 *sponsered* Review of Dimetapp Cold and Cough

Save a Dollar coupon here!

I received a free sample from #Smiley360 in return for an honest review. My opinions are 100% my own. As a parent its hard to know what medicine brands to trust with your children's health. What I liked about Dimetapp Cold and Cough its that it deals with many other cold related symptoms.

  • Stuffy Nose
  • Runny Nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy Watery Eyes
  • Cough

One medicine is all you need! It's fast acting and seems to offer relief for 4 hours or so each dose.
It was a blessing especially of a night when my son's cough seemed to bother him more, making sleep come more easy and he liked the Grape Flavor.

Cold and Cough Tips:

  • Drink a lot of liquids - Stay hydrated
  • Ease congestion with steam
  • Rest!
  • Raise your head on an extra pillow to help ease post-nasal drip

The Manipulation Trilogy!!!

Title: Avowed - The Manipulation Trilogy Book Three
Authors: Alicia Taylor & Natalie Townson
Genre: Romantic Suspense.


Three years ago I vowed revenge. Now I'm married with secrets, desperate to get past them.

I set out to destroy the man I thought ruined my life. I never saw it coming when he turned out to be the love I couldn't live without.

Damon was my target, now I'm determined to keep him.

Will he be able to get past my confessions, and forgive my actions? Will I be able to forgive his? We've come too far to lose it all now. It's time to fight for us, fight for our happiness. 

Not every story is as it seems but it's time to avow our sins.

Both of us.



Alicia Taylor

Alicia Taylor was born and raised in the East Midlands town of Derby, England, where she lives with her family and mass of animals - she's a huge family and animal lover.
Writing powerful love stories and creating Alpha males with a dash of darkness has become a passion of mine, and I have many stories and characters swirling in my head that I can't wait to share with you all. Is it weird to have so many voices in my head? I'm not crazy, I promise... maybe a little bit.

Smiley360 review of Nescafe with Coffee-mate

I was excited to receive free samples from Smiley360 in return for my honest opinion on this Nescafe with  Coffee-Mate product.

#Nescafecoffeemate moment

Everybody knows I can not function without my morning coffee, its like a warm fussy hug! However mornings can be very hectic and that is what I love about Nescafe with Coffee-mate

It's Instant but with a rich creamy texture that can rival many brands, With fewer steps involved it makes getting that morning fix so much quicker and easier.
It also comes in yummy popular flavors such as French Vanilla, Hazelnut and my personal favorite Sweet and Creamy. 

I'm truly impressed with this 2in1 coffee drink that tastes o so yummy..try for yourself with this

Let me know what you guys think!!! You can also visit Nescafe on Twitter @NescafeUSA

Molly McLain - Can't get enough - River Bend bk2

Can't Get Enough (River Bend, #2)Can't Get Enough by Molly McLain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tony Dunn makes me want to pack my bags and move to River Bend! He is so hot on so many levels it makes my head spin.

I don't just mean in the way he can fill out a pair of jeans hot... which he can.
I don't just mean in the way he could talk the panties off of a nun with this slick mouth hot.. which I have no doubt he can!

I mean on every freaking level, he is such a good father and so sweet and generous the man can give you a toothache. I'm in love...

Tony by far is a character I wanted to know more about since the first River Bend Novel. He is a character that has shown so much personal growth its outstanding, with the run of bad luck he was having I really wanted a happy ending for him and his daughter Bri.. (Ex in jail, single father, sick babysitter nothing was going right for him!)

Nicole was an awesome match for Tony, coming back to River Bend after a messy divorce I'm happy she found and understanding ear in Tony, a friend when she needed one, somebody she could relate too.

These two make a crazy hot couple!! I loved meeting up with old characters and learning about new faces, I also enjoyed the dynamic of small town life. Molly McLain has fast become one of my favorites with this series and I can't wait to visit River Bend again

I will be totally honest I never really give a thought to all the things baking soda could be used for... I'm Impressed! Every house needs a box of this stuff in there house..

  • Cleaning - We all know house cleaners can be an expense, one job I hate is cleaning the microwave! But who knew you could use baking soda on a sponge to clean and keep odor away for way cheaper.
  • Facial Scrub - YES you heard me! if you make baking soda into a paste and put it on your face it really does help remove those dead skin cells... I'm in love!
  • Crafts - You can make play clay for crafts with the kids. This is a cheap and awesome idea for making decor, magnets, boxes, ornaments and more with the kiddies.
And Of course Baking!!! Baking soda helps all your baked goods rise..

Beth Yarnell - Lush

Lush (Pleasure at Home, #2)Lush by Beth Yarnall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lucy is going to ask help from the one man she swore she would never lay eyes on again. Cal her billionaire ex boyfriend broke her heart when he cheated on her with his secretary. But her circumstance is bad, real bad.. She has a crazy ex husband trying to harm her and her beautiful baby girl Poppy, and because of that she will crawl back to Cal and ask him for the job she desperately needs.

Cal has a job for her, but its not one shes expecting.. role of wife! Cal needs a wife to fix his image. Not only that but he knows whats happening with Lucy, and he wants to protect her. Even if Lucy is totally unaware of how much Cal actually knows about her secrets.

This was a great read! The romance was great and the sex was steamy but I also loved the added element of suspense and risk due to the crazy ex.

Cal was a awesome character, I really enjoyed watching him woo his wife and claim her trust. He did a really nice job at trying to understand her needs and my goodness he was a hot fierce protector!

My heart cried for Lucy and all she had suffered, her body and self esteem was battered and I am so happy she found the true love she craved.

I read this story without reading book one! I'm sad I didn't realize this was one in a series.. However it didn't take away anything from the story. This was a great plot that was truly entertaining!
