From the Earth to Your Home™ ~ ECOS™ Dishmate™ Hypoallergenic Dish Soap

Links to this post

I've always loved to have eco-friendly products in my home, especially cleaning products and when they smell good that a huge bonus! I hit the jackpot with Winterpine Dishmate Dish Soap from ECOS. Last month ECOS fans voted on their favorite scents and the winner, Winterpine, won therefore became this year's limited edition scent. The runner-up scents were Gingerbread and Spiced Chai. What a difficult decision to make ~ I can imaging I'd love all three!


This dish soap is unlike most others I've used as it has an invigorating winter aroma that fills my kitchen when I'm washing dishes (Yes...I still wash by hand! 😕) Not only is the scent wonderful, but the ECOS Dishmate Dish Soap really cleans my dishes. 

Dishmate Winterpine is concentrated with powerful, plant-derived cleaning agents and can be used on your dishes or hands as it is very effective, yet gentle. The formula is free of formaldehyde and dyes, hypoallergenic, readily biodegradable, pH balanced and is never tested on animals.

ECOS earth friendly products are perfect forcleaning up and preparing for the holidays and certainly good for cleaning up after all of the fun! Visit the ECOS website HERE for more eco-friendly cleaning products. Be sure to connect with ECOS on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Google Plus and LinkedIn

Disclosure: I received the above product for review. However, all opinions are entirely my own.

Links to this post

With Season 3 of DinoTrux already underway on Netflix, it's the perfect time to consider DinoTrux toys for your holiday gift giving. Kids (and adults!) everywhere love the action packed series...my boys included! Netflix is awesome too...not only can they watch DinoTrux any time that they want to, but also tons of other shows and movies as well. 


These DinoTrux toys are so cool! Each one is designed to spark your child's imagination and provide tons of fun for them. My son can literally play with his DinoTrux toys for hours and love it, so I'm confident that other little DinoTrux fans would be happy to receive these toys for the holidays too. 

SCREEN GEMS PARTNERS WITH #SNAPCHAT TO CREATE FIRST-EVER 3D INTERACTIVE LENS FOR RELEASE OF “UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS”

Links to this post

In support of the upcoming action/horror film UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS, the latest installment in the blockbuster UNDERWORLD franchise, Screen Gems has partnered with the wildly popular platform Snapchat to develop the first ever sponsored interactive 3D Lens to reach their 150+ million daily users and allow the studio to communicate with Snapchatters in the most interactive and personal way. The "Underworld 3D Lens" uses a smartphone's gyroscope to build an immersive Underworld-themed environment around the Snapchatter rather than the standard overlay to which users are accustomed. As teh phone turns, the background adapts to the movement.


The "Underworld 3D Lens" will be released nationwide on December 29, 2016 but fans will have the opportunity to "snap to unlock" and get a sneak peek via Snapcodes released prior to the launch starting December 1, 2016. The custom Snapcodes will be incorporated and amplified through various social and content partners, TV, and print materials in the weeks leading up to Lens' release.

As one of the film's promotional partners, Snapchat's augmented reality, immersive experience is spreading awareness and excitement for the film. The 3D Lens transports users into Underworld and drops them into a 360 degree environment. By panning to the sides, fans can explore the various worlds from the movie. In addition, the Lens transforms the user into a vampire similar to the film's lead character Selene, played by Kate Beckinsale.

Disney Magic & Imagination come together for The BFG! #TheBFG

Links to this post
Another extraordinary Disney movie has arrived for home entertainment ~ Disney's The BFG!


The BFG unites the talents of three of the world's greatest storytellers ~ Roald Dahl, Walt Disney, and Steven Spielberg ~ to bring to life the classic tale of a courageous little girl named Sophie and a gentle and charming Big Friendly Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. 

Families and Friends will be swept away, just as my family was, by this spectacular adventure and will also be impressed and delighted by the extensive bonus features, including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of "The BFG." According to Mr. Spielberg, "It's a story about friendship, it's a story about loyalty and protecting your friends and it's a story that shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems."

I completely agree with Mr. Spielberg's description of The BFG...my family and I watched the movie together and laughed together at certain scenes while empathizing with the characters in other parts of the movie. The life lessons are wonderful just as they always are in a Disney film which is another reason why I encourage my children to watch Disney and why I love watching the movies with them! The BFG will definitely not disappoint any audience and is one that I highly recommend adding to your home entertainment collection.

For many years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace, who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales...until she meets Pete! 


Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete's descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham's stories. With the help of Natalie, an 11-year-old girl who's father Jack owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs and the truth about his dragon.
