PopSockets:Great Stocking Stuffers (Review & Giveaway) #HolidayGiftGuide

I still can't believe that October is over and we're in November. This year has gone by so fast, it's crazy to think that next year will be 2020. With that being said it's time to get ready for the holidays and start buying gifts. As my kids get older, it's getting somewhat harder and harder to buy for them, especially my oldest who isn't into "Toys," anymore.

One thing for sure is my teens always have their phones on them whether it be texting friends, listening to music, playing games or watching youtube, they make sure to keep that device on them all the time and honestly with them being 14 and 12, it makes me feel better knowing they have them when they leave the house. My 12 year old just got his phone over the summer and when he got it we made sure he had a heavy duty case on it just in case it falls while he's out with friends because you never know. 



A couple of weeks ago we were sent a few  PopSockets for our phones and I thought, perfect timing with the holidays being around the corner. If you're unfamiliar with PopSockets, they are a phone grip and stand and come in a wide variety of designs and you can even create your own design by customizing your PopSocket. To use all you do is remove the liner and stick the PopSockets to the back of your phone, tablet or phone case. To open you pull the phone grip out twice, it can close flat when you don't want to use it and it can easily be removed without causing any damage to your device you have it on.

We're pretty familiar with PopSockets as we've had them on our phones before and I absolutely love them. It's great to use with one hand, it secures your phone so that you don't accidentaly drop your it and I love that you can reposition it if need be. The PopSockets are also great to use when you want to sit your phone up to watch a video or movie. My teens absolutely love them and so do their friends. 



PopSockets would make great stocking stuffers for the upcoming holiday and they can be used by the entire family. They're inexpensive and take litle to no room, which would be make a great stocking stuffer! 

I'm excited to be partnering up with PopSockets to offer our CANADIAN readers a chance at winning two Popsockets. Just comment below sharing what your favorite thing to do on your phone is, (example: scroll Instagram, play games, text, etc.) For more infomation about PopSockets and their other products, be sure to head to their website.

LEGO Disney Frozen II Olaf Review #HolidayGiftGuide


My family and I are huge fans of the Disney hit movie, Frozen. I'm so excited for Frozen 2 to come out and to take my family to go and see it. Although we don't play the entire soundtrack like we use to, our favorite songs from the original movie, Frozen are still played weekly when my kids and I sing our favorite songs during family karoke night. 

My five year old is counting down the days until Frozen 2 comes out later this month and I'm just as excited as she is. So when we were sent over a package from LEGO with one of her favorte characters from the movie, she was super excited to put it together and we had to make sure that Frozen soundtrack was playing in the background as her and my husband worked on the LEGO Disney Frozen 2 Olaf set. 



The LEGO Olaf toy is loads of fun to build and play with. His arms and neck are adjustable so you can position and move him however you like, and he comes with Frozen accessories to add to the fun. Disney Frozen II fans can channel the joy of this lovable snowman as they put on his blue bow tie or help him hold his pencil to write in his journal as he discovers the various wonders of life. When displayed at home or at work, this buildable Olaf Frozen character figure adds a ray of sunshine on even the coldest day, and is a great Frozen gift idea for Disney fans.



The set comes with 122 lego pieces and is geared for kids six years and older. With my husband's help, my five year old was able to put this set together in about an hour. The pieces came together pretty easy and before we knew it she had Olaf, his blue tie, jounral and pencil put together. 

She's had it for a couple of weeks now and LEGO Olaf is still residing in my little girl's room on her nightstand. She loves that the arms and neck are adjustable and that they move. LEGO Olaf has been her favorite and she also loves to have him with us when we tuck her in at night and read her a story.

This LEGO set would be a great gift for anyone who is a fan of the movie Frozen. Would be a great gift for this upcoming holiday season. For more information about Disney Frozen 2 Olaf LEGO set, be sure to head to their website

Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw Blu-ray Review


Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), a loyal agent of America's Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Jason Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015's Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they've tried to take each other down. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever--and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown's Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw's sister--these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.


MY REVIEW
I remember watching the first Fast and Furious at the movie theatre when I was a teen. I absolutely loved it and it's crazy to think that after 18 years of the original movie, it's still going and the fandom is huge. 

When we were introduced to both Hobbs and Shaw in previous movies, I was a complete fan, so when I saw that they were starring in a spin-off movie, I was excited to watch it because I'm a huge fan of both Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham and in previous movies their characters weren't the best of friends, so I was pumped to see how this movie would play out. 

In the beginning we see both Hobbs and Shaw working together, not willingly, to get a virus from Shaw's sister, but before they can do that she is taken hostage by the villian in this story, Brixton Lore, played by Idris Elba, who plans on using the virus to commit global genocide. As they try to work together to stop Brixton the two men are also trying to work through their differences along the way. 

With both Hobbs and Shaw going back and forth with snarky comments towards each other, it really brings a bit of comedy in this action film, which is very entetaining. Even if you haven't watched previous Fast and Furious movies you could watch Hobbs and Shaw by itself since this spin-off has nothing to do with the other movies except for the two characters being in the previous movies and not liking one another.

 I really enjoyed the movie and the action scenes in the movie were amazing, but I would expect no less with both Johnson and Staham playing lead as they are both known for pulling off great action scenes. If you're looking for a great action packed movie with a bit of comedy, I'd highly recommend giving Hobbs and Shaw a watch.

Hobbs and Shaw is available today, November 5, 2019, on both blu-ray, DVD and digital for purchase.

NINJAGO: Spinjitzu Slam - Zane Review #HolidayGiftGuide



My son loves to build with LEGOS, so when we were sent the new NINJAGO: Spinjitzu Slam - Zane, he was very excited. Now I'm a mom who usually leaves the LEGO building challenges to my husband, but since he was away for work when we got this set, my six year old begged me to build it.


With this LEGO set, kids can spin up a storm and take on ninja challenges with the spinning top toy. This fun-packed playset features a Zane Tornado Spinner which holds a minifigure and fits onto the easy-to-build spinner launcher, plus a buildable training dummy to use as a target and 2 shurikens that can also be sent spinning by the launcher. Great for solo or social play, kids will love recreating the ninja tornado effect as seen on the NINJAGO TV show and making up their own Spinjitzu Slam competitions with friends.

The set is designed for builders seven years old and above. With my six year old and myself, it took under an hour to build and Lego quality as expected is present in each component. We got organized and separated the 109 pieces into color pieces and followed the awesome step by step building guide.

The set gives you the opportunity to make Zane's Spinjitzu Tornado of Ice spinner. It comes with 3 attachments for attack, defense and also includes a Zane mini-figure. So you can pick which accessories to put on the "spinjutzu".



If new to the NINJAGO theme it may be wise to pick up another character from this collection to increase the play value. This set stands well alone but it would be more fun with friends who had other sets so that your child and their friends can play together. We were all pretty impressed on how well the spinner spins!


Overall this is a fun set whether you are a fan of the television series or not and I definitely want to pick up a couple more characters so that when my son has friends over they can all play together.

Now available, you can get the NINJAGO: Spinjitzu Slam LEGO set wherever LEGOS are sold. For more information about this set and other LEGO sets be sure to head over to their website.
