Community Coffee Review & Giveaway

*I received a free product for review purpose. I did not receive any compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are not always positive, but they are my personal and honest opinions. Other people's views and experiences with the show might be different from mine. 


Now in its 95th year, Community Coffee Company is the largest family-owned and operated coffee company in the U.S., and four generations of the Saurage family have operated the company since its inception.

They have  just released two new flavored coffee products that celebrate the wildly popular fall flavors of sweet, buttery caramel and pumpkin spice: Golden Caramel and Pumpkin Praline. These are available online and in select retail markets (they are not in store in CA).

One more thing of note: Community Coffee Company has an amazing fantastic Military Match program: when you buy a Military Match set of four 12oz, 16oz, or Single Serve 18ct coffees, Community Coffee Company will match your order with an additional four, and send all eight items plus a signature military mug to the APO/FPO or military base address you provide. A delicious cup of coffee goes a long way to provide comfort and support to our U.S. military men and women. It’s a great way to show appreciation to our troops and send them a taste of home!







We were lucky enough to have received a gift set as well as 2 holiday favors to review. While the gift set was nice, I must admit that I thought the Golden Caramel and Bread Pudding were amazing! This was my first time trying community coffee and I thought the quality of their coffee was great. The holiday favors were delicious. After my morning workouts, my friends and I would head across the street from the gym to grab coffee together. Although I love hanging out with them, the cost of coffee added up quickly. With Community Coffee, I don't feel bad about missing my coffee out at all. I love that I could make delicious coffee in the comfort of my own home and not spend a ton of money on it every day. Furthermore, I love that my house smell amazing with freshly brewed coffee.

If you are a coffee lover, I highly recommend checking out Community Coffee.

Many thanks to Community Coffee. The company has generously offered  Golden Caramel and Bread Pudding favor coffees as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers. This giveaway ends on Dec 4th, 2014.

YOTTOY Girl Scouts Friendship Dolls Review

*I received a free product for review purpose. I did not receive any compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are not always positive, but they are my personal and honest opinions. Other people's views and experiences with the show might be different from mine. 

Fun with purpose…! Girls from coast-to-coast are about to meet their new best friends: Girl Scouts Friendship Dolls, a beautiful new collection of soft dolls that support personal style, diversity, friendship – and girl power! Colorful and lovable with lots of personality and “just-like-me” appeal, the debut line from YOTTOY Productions, Inc., a leading designer of premier plush playthings, is now available at Wal-Mart stores nationwide and online at Girlscoutshop.com, Walmart.com and YOTTOY.com.

“We’re so excited to introduce families all across the country to our inspiring new collection of Girl Scouts Friendship Dolls that offer positive role models and playmates for today’s girls and tweens,” said Kate Karcher Clark, President and Founder, YOTTOY. “These dolls embrace the Girl Scouts mission to ‘build girls of courage, confidence and character,’ while emphasizing the power of friendship. Girls can do anything when they work together as friends and respect one another, and we designed these dolls to help boost their self-esteem and encourage them to be themselves and make the world a better place.”
“We’re pleased to be working with YOTTOY to develop a doll that is uplifting for girls and that celebrates their uniqueness and individuality,” said Barry Horowitz, Chief Merchandise Officer, Girl Scouts of the USA. “Girl Scouts Friendship Dolls are empowering and supportive of healthy attitudes for girls as they grow, develop their personal character, and gain confidence in themselves. They are a great way for us to share the fun of Girl Scouts with even more girls.” 
Made with the softest, highest-quality materials, Girl Scouts Friendship Dolls (SRP $19.99 each) are designed to grow with girls and are ready to go wherever their imaginations, aspirations and adventures take them. Each contemporary and fashionable doll proudly wears her iconic Girl Scouts sash – and comes complete with dozens of detailed stickers with awards, insignia, troop numerals, pins, and badges, so girls can personalize the doll’s sash to match their own achievements, or set their own goals for the Girl Scout experience.
Each doll is packaged in a color-coordinated box that showcases her favorite Girl Scouts activities – and even her favorite Girl Scout Cookie! This new trio of friends includes:

We're Girl Scouts of the USAWe're the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. It began over 100 years ago, with one woman, Girl Scouts' founder Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. Juliette organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents. Today, as yesterday, Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing. To volunteer, reconnect, donate, or join, visit www.girlscouts.org.

Is your daughter in a girl scouts troop or do you know of a little girl who belongs to one? YOTTOY Girl Scouts Friendship Dolls make the perfect gifts for girl scouts. We received Carina to review and it is adorable. The doll is soft and great size for traveling. We love that Carina wears a green sash that you could personalized. The doll comes with awards, insignia and number stickers for  the sash. While we love the stickers, we wished that it came with iron-on numbers instead of stickers. Our little guy took the stickers off his big sister's doll when she forgot to put her doll away. 

All in all, my daughter thought the doll is cute and she loves it. I would totally buy this for her friends this holiday season!

My Ugly Christmas Sweater Review

My reviews are not always positive, but they are my personal and honest opinions. Other people's views and experiences with the show might be different from mine. 

My husband and I have been discussing about having a Christmas party. Typically we just invite friends over for a dinner celebration. This year, I thought it would be fun to host an ugly Christmas sweater theme party where our guests could come and show off their ugly Christmas sweaters. As I was contemplating the different possible themes for our Christmas party, I was contacted by My Ugly Christmas Sweater to review their product. I thought this was a clear sign that we should definitely go with this theme.

I went on the website and browsed through the huge selection of sweaters. I love that you could easily search for the sweater you want through searching the different categories. Although there were so many great choices, I chose the following sweater.
My sweater arrived quickly and packaged well. It is clean and I can not wait to wear it for our party. 

If you are also looking to buy an ugly sweater for theme parties this Christmas, be sure to check out My Ugly Christmas Sweater website.
