Adventure Time: The Complete Fourth Season Available Now #Review

Jennifer’s Deals was sent product(s) in exchange for this review post. No monetary gain was received. However, all said opinions are of my own.

Adventure Time is a well known cartoon in this household. Finn and Jake are some of my daughters’ favorite characters. I have always enjoyed watching Adventure Time with my girls because it is actually entertaining. There are so many different cartoons that they like to watch and if I have to sit and watch these with them I want to die of boredom. Now it is not like this with Adventure Time. I love the comedy and quirk involved with this show.

So, when I got the chance to review Adventure Time: The Complete Fourth Season I knew I had to jump at the chance! We have seen almost all of the Adventure Time episodes (several times, might I mention) so I knew that Haley and Amberly would LOVE to own the complete fourth season. There was so much excitement in this house when it finally arrived. Neither one of them could not wait to start watching the episodes!

Noah: A Wordless Picture Book #Review

My opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

noah

A hundred years before the Great Flood, a man named Noah came from talking crazy. God wanted him to build the biggest ship the world had ever seen. The future of humanity depended on it. How would his wife respond? What would the neighbors think? Was it even feasible?

This lavish reimagining of one of the greatest stories of all time will fascinate children and adults alike. Nuanced and playful, yet meticulous in following the biblical narrative, Mark Ludy’s world-class art digs deeper than the Sunday-school tale of cuddly animals, exploring Noah’s relationship with his family, the natural world, God- and a formidable engineering challenge.

Immerse yourself in this stunning wordless epic. Whatever your age, you’ll never read this story in the same way again. 

Noah is a hardcover book with 64 pages. 64 pages full of pictures! I was given the opportunity to review Noah. I knew it was a wordless book, but didn’t quite expect what I received. It was so much better than I had imagined! The whole book is full of beautiful pictures that tells the story of Noah. My daughter Haley loves looking through Noah. When she first started reading this book, she stopped several times to come show me things in the pictures. She also had a great big sister moment and taught her sister, Amberly, all about Noah through the pictures.

I highly recommend this picture book for the holidays! You can purchase Noah: A Wordless Picture Book on Amazon for only $14.26 (hardcover).

KISS InstaWave Creates Beautiful, Long-Lasting Curls #ProductReview #Beauty #Hair


Jennifer’s Deals was sent a product(s) in exchange for this review post. No monetary gain was received. However, all said opinions are of m own. Powered by Brandbacker.

One of my favorite things to do is play around with my daughter’s hair. I have tried several different styling products and styles with Amberly. But one of her favorite styles is to have curly hair. I have a regular curling iron and I hate using it. It takes forever to curl her hair. And since it is so time consuming, I rarely use it. So when I got the chance to review the KISS InstaWave, I knew Amberly would be super excited! The revolutionary KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful, long-lasting curls with ease (no need to be a pro).

No longer do we need a professional to style our hair to perfection. Instantly create beautiful, long-lasting curls with just the touch of a button with the KISS InstaWave, a fully automatic tangle-free curler. I have been highly impressed with our KISS InstaWave. I immediately showed Amberly and she squealed with delight. We headed to the bathroom and plug our KISS InstaWave up. It took less than 30 seconds for the red light to turn blue. KISS InstaWave is easy for anyone to use, from any angle, with any hand. KISS InstaWave features a Curl Dial with left/right curl directions. It will automatically shut off after 90 minutes and has 2 heat setting with a low/high switch with maximum temperature of 420.

All you have to do is section off your hair. I pulled the top half of Amberly’s hair in a bun and did the bottom half first. Then you section off the hair about an inch thick. Next hold InstaWave vertically and simply place a section of hair on the InstaWave curling rod. Touch the Curl Dial either left or right, and the InstaWave instantly and automatically catches and curls the hair. Hold for 5-10 seconds, hold longer for tighter curls and less for beachy waves. Pull the InstaWave down vertically, letting the hair out. That’s it! SO EASY! 

I had Amberly’s hair fully curled in less than 10 minutes. 10 minutes! Compared to a good 30 minutes with my old curling wand! I am LOVING the InstaWave! As you can see in the pictures, the curls turned out great and Amberly is loving her hair do! Isn’t she just the cutest?

Disney’s Maleficent #Review

Jennifer’s Deals received a product(s) in exchange for this review post. No monetary gain was received. However, all said opinions are of my own. 

maleficent

I remember when I first heard about Disney’s Maleficent. I knew that this was going to be a must see for my family. Unfortunately, we was not able to see Maleficent in theaters. We was going to have to wait until it hit the shelves to be able to watch it. But, lucky for me, I was given the opportunity to review Maleficent on Blu-ray!

Okay, let’s start off by saying that what I had in mind for this movie was completely different than what this movie was really about. I had it in my mind that I would not like Angelina Jolie’s character at all. That it would be based on why we should hate Maleficent. It was the complete opposite. I ended up LOVING Maleficent and learning her back story. It was full of passion, heart-break and true love. Not the true love of a man and a woman but the true love between a mother figure and a child. It was amazing!

Continue reading »



There was so many different points through this movie that left me breathless and excited. One of my favorite scenes was when Maleficent’s wings was taken from her. It was my favorite because I could feel how much this affected her. She was heartbroken not only because the man she thought to be her true love betrayed her but because she was robbed of her big beautiful wings. It totally changed her whole entire character. She was deemed “evil” because of her actions afterwards.

But you don’t even hate her then. Well, atleast I didn’t. I felt her pain and understood why she felt she need to take revenge. But as the movie goes on, you see her change once again. She starts to feel love again with the child and by the end of the movie realizes that there is such a thing as true love.

Maleficent has become one of my FAVORITE Disney movies!
