Celebrate Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation with #Entenmanns {DIY Blobby Slime + A Visa Giveaway} #LoveLittleBites #Sponsored

Welcome to the Summer Vibes Giveaway Hop!

From now through July 31, hop along to all participating blogs for a great variety of giveaways you can enter to win! There is no limit to how many you can win, so be sure to enter them all!


The coupons for product redemption, information, and gift card have been provided by Entenmann’s® so that I could try the product and share my thoughts and information about Entenmann’s®. The opinions expressed in this post are my own and do not reflect the opinions of Entenmann’s®.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is in theaters now, and I have to say, my kids are pretty excited about it! Actually, excited might be an understatement! The second movie- lovingly called 'Scary Monsters 2' is my daughter's absolute favorite movie. We've watched it over and over and over again.

When we heard about movie #3? Both kids immediately started planning our trip to the theater! Take a look:

In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else's vacation at the hotel.   It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans. But the dream vacation takes a dangerous turn when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the human captain of the ship, Ericka, who holds a mysterious secret that threatens them all. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky and written by Genndy Tartakovsky and Michael McCullers, the film is produced by Michelle Murdocca.

We were so excited that we wanted to have a little fun recreating one of our favorite charaters: Blobby!

DIY Blobby {aka Homemade Slime}

  • 1/2 Cup Glue
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/4 Liquid Starch
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Googly Eyes
  1. In a bowl, mix the glue and water until well blended. We used plain ol' white school glue because it was on sale, but if you want a really authentic Blobby, try out a clear glue, or a green colored glue.
  2. Once mixed well, add in your food coloring (unless using colored glue). Add until you get your desired green and mix well. 
  3. Pour in the liquid starch (found in the laundry department at your favorite stores). You will immediately start to see the slime form. Mix until there is no liquid left.
  4. Knead with your hands until your slime has reached its desired consistency.
  5. Add in googly eyes and enjoy your new friend Blobby... shape him, roll him, stretch him! "He's fine! He's Blobby!"
  6. To store, use an airtight container or zipper bag to make your slime last longer.

Fun, right? But we weren't ready to stop the Hotel Transylvania fun there! We also prepped for the newest movie but catching up with our old pals in the first two. Of course, no movie time is complete without treats so we were thrilled to pick up some of our favorite Entenmann's treats for our movie day.

Entenmann’s® Little Bites® offer perfect pre-portioned pouches of delicious baked snacks that are made with REAL ingredients like blueberries, strawberries and banana. Little Bites Muffins are a good source of calcium and vitamin D, without any of those extra we don't want like high fructose corn syrup or trans fat. And for us mom, most varieties are less than 200 calories a pack! Now, that's a movie snack we can feel great about!

Entenmann’s® also offers a variety of delicious, cake style donuts like Rich Frosted, Crumb and Powdered. My kids cannot get enough of the chocolate (and I must admit I'm a sucker for the powdered myself). Yum!

Not only are these some of our favorites, but they've partnered with Sony Pictures Animation to celebrate Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation with a frightfully fun (and tasty) promotion. From May 28 through August 3, 2018, you can receive $5 off a movie ticket to see the film with the purchase of three five-count specially marked Entenmann’s® Little Bites® or eight-count specially marked Entenmann’s® Donuts.

MD Complete Got Me Clear with the Acne Clearing System {A Review + Coupon Code} #mdcgotmeclear #MDCompleteMe #sponsored

**Product received for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own.

"You look so YOUNG!"

That's something we all want to hear every now and again, don't we? I remember as a young mom, I always disliked people thinking I was the big sister or a teen mom... but now that I'm 30, going on 31, I must admit I don't hate it when people come to my door and ask me if my parents are home.

Yes, we all want to look great for our age.

But we don't want to be thought of as younger because of our acne! Acne is an issue that is most commonly associated with teenagers, but unfortunately it's an issue that follows many of us throughout adulthood. Annoying! I'll take that 'eat a whole pizza and doesn't gain a pound' metabolism or the 'stay up all night, wake up early with energy' from my teen days, but the acne can just stay behind!

While I am lucky that I don't have severe acne, I do get the occasional spots on my cheek, chin and forehead that drive me absolutely crazy. I have tried many solutions and found that while they may take care of the breakouts, they instead leave me with dry, flaky skin. Already having dry skin, that's a bad combination!!

MD Complete is looking to change that with a broader approach to skincare treatments for acne--- one that is less irritating, reduced the appearance of acne marks left behind and helps to restore an overall even and healthy looking complexion.

So, what makes it better than other RX acne remedies? Take a look:

- Mimics the combination therapies by combining high potency Retinol with Benzoyl Peroxide
- Macro-encapsulates ingredients to be more effectively and gently absorbed into the skin
- Nourishes with Vitamin C, B & E to reduce the appearance of marks and restore a beautiful, healthy-looking complexion

That all sounds great, of course... but does it actually work? I was recently sent their Acne Clearing System to try out for myself. Let's break it down by product:

Step 1: Acne Clarifying Cleanser. This cleanser uses natural botanicals and salicylic acid to gently exfoliate without stripping skin. It washes away the impurities that can clog our pores and helps to prevent future breakouts. Now again, I've tried many acne cleansers in the past but with my dry skin, they just left me feeling drier and itchier than ever before. Even as I washed my face I could feel the difference with this one. It didn't leave my skin feeling tight, but rather very soft and smooth. It actually felt very creamy to me--- more like what I'd expect in my moisturizing cleansers, not in acne products. Even just using this product on its own my skin FELT better. I also discovered it takes very little to get the job done, which is great because that means it lasts longer!

Step 2: Acne Breakout Treatment. While the cleanser is used all over, this treatment is applied just to the problem areas. For me at the time of trying this out, that was beside my mouth on my lower cheek and on the left side of my face above my chin. This area also happens to be where I experience the most dryness, to where sometimes even my moisturizers can cause some irritation. I was more than a little apprehensive to try a spot treatment on it for this reason. After all, we all know how drying typical Benzoyl Peroxide remedies can be. But the claim was that the innovative formula actually hydrates AND helps clear the acne simultaneously so I gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that it really did do both! No irritation, no flaking, no itchiness. It doesn't just clear the breakout, it actually repairs the skin.

Step 3: Citrus-C Healthy Complexion. This correcting serum infused with Retinol and Vitamin C is designed to help diminish the dark marks that acne can leave behind and refine overall skin texture. It also moisturizes and leaves the skin with a clean-feeling, matte finish. Now, I don't personally usually have too many issues with these dark marks, BUT I can say that my skin DID feel better after using and while I'm not sure it would be noticeable to most, I did feel that my complexion looked generally more even throughout.

Step 4: Healthy Skin Probiotic. We know that probiotics are essential for many aspects of our health, and our skin is just another one of those aspects. This probiotic is exclusive to MDComplete.com, and perhaps my favorite part of this whole system, because it attacks acne from the inside out for a more complete treatment. It addresses the effects of stress on gut health that can trigger inflammation throughout the body to include skin. It contains a Prebiotic and Vitamin B (Niacin) to restore the balance of good bacteria, leaving us with healthier looking skin! I will say that I WAS a little apprehensive about taking it because you have to drink it and I don't tend to do well with any powder type of supplement, but it's a very tiny amount and pretty easy to swallow...so to speak. I liked to have a tall glass of water or orange juice to chase it down with still though.

This is a 60-Day system so the longer you use it, the better results you will see, but I can honestly say at just about a week and a half, I'm already seeing some results. My little problem areas are clearing up nicely and skin in general just FEELS better. I would say for me personally, I could feel it before I could see it. I'm going to be completely honest too... I STINK at keeping to a proper skincare routine and have been known to miss a day or two, so I know that if I'm still seeing great results now, the results would be even greater if used daily like intended!

Super Simple DIY Carpet Powder

Are you working on cleaning your house this summer?

People image created by Yanalya - Freepik.com

I know I certainly am, and one of the things I really wanted to work on was getting my house smelling fresh! With kids, come a lot of weird smells in the carpets... listen, I don't know what it is, but I don't want to smell it! There are many carpet powders that work great, but today I wanted to share the DIY version that is even better, all natural and keeps your carpets smelling amazing.

Even better? Many of you probably already have the TWO ingredients required.

DIY Carpet Deodorizer

  • Baking Soda
  • Essential Oils
  1. First and foremost, decide on what oil(s) you want to use. Personally my go to is lemon oil. Lemon is great for getting rid of smells, so its a great addition and leaves the house smelling fresher. Lemon is also an oil that most people who use oils even casually always have on hand, or can be found very inexpensively. Sometimes I'll mix it up with orange or another oil, so you can truly choose whatever you like!
  2. Now, simply add several drops to your baking soda and mix it well. 
  3. Sprinkle the mixture onto your carpets and allow to sit for a few hours. Personally, I like doing it overnight so it really has time to do its thing. (Hint: for easier sprinkling, use an old salt shaker.)
  4. After it's had time to sit, vacuum as normal.

Simple, right? Baking soda by itself can be a great carpet deodorizer too, but I love the added scent boost that the essential oils give! I love to do this right before company comes, as the scent usually hands around for a few days after.

Not a fan of carpet powders? Place this same mixture in a small bowl anywhere throughout the house where you need a little extra freshening up, the back of the toilet, near or in the kitchen trash, etc... it truly works wonders! 

The Hellcat Series Book Tour + Giveaway

A Cat's Chance in Hell
Hellcat Series Book 1
by Sharon Hannaford
Genre: Urban Fantasy

If the Demon Master gets his way the City is about to become Hell on Earth.

Gabi has some extraordinary talents. Some might call them supernatural, but for her they’re just part of everyday life. What she knows about the supernatural would give most humans nightmares forever. Ridding the streets of bad-ass creatures of the night is Gabi’s other job. Taking up the mantle of her father’s legacy, she is a Hunter for the Societas Malus Venatori. The first female ever bestowed the title. Her day job is a little less dangerous. Most of the time. 

Being ambushed and kidnapped by the sinfully sexy Master Vampire of the City should have been just another night on the job, except for the fact that Julius has other plans for her. When he reveals that his nemesis wants control of the City and has plans to fill it with Demons from the Etherworld, creating an army of Ghouls and turning humans into nothing more than cattle to feed his Clan, Gabi must choose her path. She must decide whether to join with Julius in a stand against the Demon Master or flee the City with her friends and family, leaving the Vampires to wage their own war and the rest of the residents to their fate.

But it’s not in Gabi’s nature to back down from a fight, no matter how impossible the odds. As the Malus Venatori prepare for war, Gabi finds herself pulled deeper into Julius’s world and she makes some disturbing discoveries about her unusual supernatural abilities. Her existence might just be the answer to a mystery as old as the Vampire race. Even more unsettling than that is her undeniable attraction to Julius and the taste of his blood. But before she can come to terms with her conflicting desires they must all survive the Demon onslaught and find a way to safeguard the truth of her heritage. 

While the supernatural bad guys know her as Angeli Morte, her friends call her Hellcat!

If you like your heroine smart, sassy and absolutely kick-ass and your Vampire hero sexy as sin and twice as dangerous you’re going to love the Hellcat Series.

Contains adult content.

All Hell Breaks Loose
Hellcat Series Book 2

In the City, the Werewolves are restless. 

Gabi is striving to get back to life as usual. Dealing with the aftermath of being kidnapped and tortured by Dantè, wrapping her head around being a Dhampir, and trying to figure out Julius’s unexpected attitude as he withdraws from her and becomes cool and distant. As if that isn’t enough to cope with, she receives the disturbing news that someone she cares about has been dragged unwillingly into her world after a brutal and calculated Werewolf attack. 

As rogue Werewolves run rampant through the City, it becomes clear there will be no gentle reintroduction to Gabi's duties as Hunter for the Societas Malus Venatori. Once again the Vampires join forces with the SMV to contain the threat, but the odds seem stacked against them and the casualties keep mounting. Tensions run high as the perpetrators manage to stay one step ahead of the Hunters and the senseless violence continues. No one suspects betrayal from within, until Gabi’s pets unmask a traitor. But the traitor isn’t the real threat and the war has only just begun.

This time their nemesis isn’t playing by any rules and no one is safe in this deadly, new game. Not even the Master Vampire of the City. As the undeniable chemistry between Gabi and Julius reignites, they realise the danger isn’t only to the human population of the City, but threatens to overwhelm them all. What they finally uncover brings Gabi into very real conflict with the SMV Council and leaves her questioning her life-long allegiances. 

Not all monsters come in obvious monster packages and sometimes what you’re fighting to protect is what you should be fighting against. 

Not everyone will walk away from this fight intact. 

Strap in, hang on and grab a breath while you can. All hell is about to break loose!

"The Hellcat series is one wild ride ... one of the best new series to hit the dark urban fantasy world, ever! Two words: more, please." Diane Nelson (Sand in my Shoes Reviews)

A Cold Day in Hell
Hellcat Series Book 3

The City may be calm, but is the Hunter about to become the hunted?

For the first time in months the City is peaceful, so peaceful that Gabi’s suspension from the Societas Malus Venatori doesn’t feel like a punishment. Her relationship with Julius is stronger than ever and Kyle has finally found his soul mate, even if he seems to need some convincing. Gabi thinks boredom is her most serious problem. She couldn’t be more wrong. 

The visitor Julius has been both expecting and dreading arrives, bringing with him dire news. An old enemy, out to destroy them, has revealed to the Masters of the Vampire race that Gabi is a Dhampir. The visitor’s presence also answers the question that’s been simmering in Gabi’s head for years; the truth of her origins. This truth brings with it a deeper understanding of the implications of her very existence, and she doesn’t like what she discovers. But it’s too late to change what’s been done and Julius must now answer to the Princeps’ Court. 

As Gabi makes plans to leave the City, drawing danger away from friends and family, a dark prophesy by the Magi Oracles forces her to change course. She will not be leaving the City alone, and she will not be running from the threat. She, Julius and a handful of others will be heading straight into the mouth of the beast. They must present themselves at Court before the Princeps travel to the City and inadvertently uncover one of the most closely guarded secrets of the Magi world. 

While the Princeps wear a face of impartiality and civility, what boils beneath the surface is a storm of selfishness, greed, lust and perversion. Danger lurks in every corner and it soon becomes clear that someone is determined to ensure that Gabi will never get the chance of a fair hearing.

Old friends and old enemies do what they have always done best, while new friends and new enemies emerge at every turn. Only one thing is sure; it’ll be a cold day in Hell before Hellcat goes down without a fight.

Put the coffee on and warm up your page-turning finger, it’s going to be a long night. 

This is a full length novel. 

Please note this novel is written in UK English and contains some adult content.

To Hell and Back
Hellcat Series Book 4


When Werewolves start turning up dead, drained of blood, the City’s Alphas turn accusing eyes on the Vampires. It doesn’t take much to get the newly-formed Werewolf Alliance riled up. But once Vampires start dying the same way it becomes clear they have a mutual enemy. 

An unexpected visitor brings news that vulnerable supernaturals from neighbouring towns are also being kidnapped and murdered, and that the City seems to be the focus of the violence. With no idea of the motives behind the attacks, Gabi and the rest of the City’s defenders immediately commit to eliminating whoever, or whatever, is behind the bizarre and gruesome acts. 

Adding to the chaos, demons suddenly attack in unprecedented numbers, stretching the City’s supernatural resources thin. The reappearance of an old foe from the Etherworld sparks fears that Mariska is back and still seeking revenge. And that once again, she’s made powerful, dark alliances. When all fingers point to something hellbent on uncovering whatever secrets the City hides, eyes finally turn to the Magi. 

A war will be waged for the greatest supernatural prize of them all, and the outcome is impossible to predict. Not even the presence of a powerful Princep and the shocking revelation of Julius’s true potential can assure victory for the pure of heart. 

This time Gabi is determined to get Mariska in her crosshairs, and she’s ready and willing to even the score. But there is no guarantee that everyone will survive this trip to Hell and back!

Come Hell or High Water
Hellcat Series Book 5


The City’s supernatural community is still in mourning, but there’s no time to spend licking their wounds. The face of the City has changed forever and now her citizens must keep up or risk succumbing to the darkness.

As the Magi withdraw to protect themselves and their vulnerable power source, it falls to the Werewolves to step into the void left by a crippled SMV. The Vampires are more than willing to help, but things are moving in the shadows; bad things that threaten to destroy everything Julius has worked for. Princep scheming seems suspicious, but in truth the greater danger lurks much closer to home.

When one of Gabi’s Werewolf friends is kidnapped by tech-savvy vigilantes it seems like an open and shut case of humans fearing what they do not understand. But as Julius travels from the City to answer the Princeps’ summons, leaving Gabi in the relative safety of the Clan, it soon becomes clear that they’ve misjudged the real enemy.

Left confused and floundering, it’s the Princep Benedict who finally provides the information they desperately seek. But his answers do not come without a price.

Defending their beloved City may seem overwhelming, but, come Hell or high water, Hellcat and Co will do whatever it takes.

Batten down the hatches, a tempest is imminent.

There'll Be Hell to Pay
Hellcat Series Book 6


Just a few months ago Gabi thought her life was damn near perfect. She could never have imagined that meeting one man would spark a chain of events that would change everything. The only resemblance to her previous life is her relentless hunt for supernatural criminals. Right now, her world has narrowed to two points of focus; co-leading the newly formed Special Investigations Department alongside Julius, her Master Vampire Consort, and searching for the traitorous Vampire Caspian and his pregnant Dark Magus cohort, Mariska. Catching up with friends and making peace with her mother are also on her agenda for the week, but life may just have other plans.

Even the most rookie supernatural investigator would figure out that things aren’t going well for the Magi of the City, but the High Council is maintaining its silence and remaining distant from the other races. The safety and security of the City’s population is falling ever more heavily on the shoulders of the fledgling Werewolf Alliance, leaving Kyle, Trish and the other Pack Alphas to handle a rising influx of demons committed to infiltrating the City and wreaking havoc.

There are many scenarios that keep Gabi from her sleep, and when one of those concerns becomes a sickening reality, it rocks her to the core. Taking one of those most dear to her is a dangerous game, one that few would play, knowing what she and Julius are capable of. The list of suspects is short and the guilty party soon shows their hand, but is this all just a ruse and what could they hope to accomplish by riling up such powerful enemies?

There is no rest for the team as, with one emergency over, they are handed a scrap of information that will ultimately lead them straight to Caspian and Mariska. But are they truly ready for the final standoff?

Who will make the ultimate sacrifice and how will the rest deal with the repercussions of an ancient prophesy that culminates in the birth of Mariska’s twin children?

This is the nail-biting conclusion to the Hellcat Series.
Buckle up boys and girls - there’s turbulence ahead.

Raising Hell
A Hellcat World Novel

The rest period is over and the ultimate endgame round has just begun.

The City has seen a peaceful lull for the past three years. The Werewolf Alliance has settled into their role as peacekeepers, stamping out threats the moment they rear their heads. The Magi have recovered from their losses both in numbers and strength and the Veil is more solid than ever. The Vampires never rest; the desire to create Dhampirs grows despite the law and the deadly consequences, but even their weapons are gathering dust.
And yet all of them know this peace is an illusion; a small space in time to rest and regroup. Because the Decuria still exist in the shadows and the Prophesy calls to all sides. The battle of the millennium is looming and only one side can win.
A new player has joined the game as old foes prepare to once more roll the dice. The board pieces are set, the gameplan is decided and the protectors of the City are the only ones who don’t know the rules.
Kyle and Trish have the family they never dared to wish for. Not only two daughters but an ever-growing, ever-strengthening Werewolf Pack. The love and security of family is everything they desired, but the weight of responsibility is burdensome and they can never let down their guard. Just when they thought everything was black and white, they are faced with a new choice; one that is all shades of grey, one that could change the Werewolf world forever.
Still reeling from the shock of the decision they must make, the fragile peace is inevitably broken, leaving the Pack blind-sided and chasing their tails. It will take everything they have to keep their family and friends safe. They will have to find strength in their weaknesses and vulnerability in their strengths if they are to survive this assault. Can they ever be prepared for the consequences of that which has been prophesied?
Fasten that safety belt and grab a handhold, this will not be a quiet Sunday afternoon drive.

Sharon has been calling herself a writer since she was eight years old. She wrote her first auto-biography at age ten. As a teenager, she was teased about being a witch, because she wore lots of black and walked around with her black, Oriental cat on a lead. She never disagreed too loudly, after all, that may have drawn attention to the herd of unicorns that lived in her back garden. 

Born and raised in South Africa, she has called New Zealand home since 2008. Her life consists largely of looking after her husband, two kids, three cats, a dog, a pony and a horse, but her working day is spent writing, and her occasional hours off usually include books, horses or a glass of good red wine. 
Though she has had many jobs over the years, her favourite is, without doubt, being paid to write about the characters who take up residence in her head. After an early foray into writing for children, Sharon discovered Urban Fantasy; the genre that felt as though it had been created with her in mind. She loves nothing more than to create strong-willed, female lead characters, who challenge those around them almost as much as they challenge themselves. 
Sharon also loves animals of all shapes and sizes. She has owned all the usual suspects one would keep as a pet, and a few more exotic ones thrown in for good measure. She spent her teens working at a tourist farm and animal park, and as a result has handled everything from porcupines and warthogs, to ferrets and hedgehogs. She has been surrogate mom to many orphans including; kittens, lambs and an eagle owl. No matter how hard she tries, animals always seem to steal the limelight in her novels.
