BrandX with Russell Brand Review

I belong to Crowdtap, and they sent me a nice digital kit for the premiere of season 2 BrandX with Russell Brand. It was so much fun to have an inside look at the brilliant and hilarious mind of Russell Brand. I don't know if it is his accent, or his quirky witty attitude, but he is hilarious and a bit raunchy at times!

The show premiered on October 11th at 11:00 p.m. est. If you missed the premiere of the second season, don't worry! FX will repeat it. For more information, check it out here.

My husband and I love to throw parties with great friends. Unfortunately, only a couple were able to join us due to the late night showing. Maybe next time Crowdtap will let us TIVO it and throw a party on a Friday night so we will have a better turnout. Regardless, it was a great time! We served your usual chips and dips, but on top of that we made my Mom's famous baked ziti served with fried scallops! Yum!

In my opinion, the show is quite hilarious! Russell is very raunchy, so I am cautioning you now! If you get offended easily, then this may not be the right show for you. If you love to laugh and are open minded, then you will love this show! I believe it will be easy for Russell to get a good lineup of celebrities He even had Opie from Sons of Anarchy! I can't quote some of the funny stuff because it is not appropriate for my blog, but if you caught this first episode, know that we all were dying laughing on the restraining order bit! ;)

Overall, we all were laughing at Russell. You are either laughing with him or at him, but either way you are laughing! Check out the show, and let me know your thoughts!

Old Navy's New Fall Looks!

The other day, we went to Old Navy for a Cardi Party! Thanks to Crowdtap, we all received one free scarf, one free skirt, and one free Cardigan. It was a blast, and I am so thrilled with the Old Navy's new looks!

How cute are these scarfs? So many colors and so many styles! My sister and I went with the longer skirts, as we were not a fan of the pencil skirts; however, two of our friends went for the shorter skirts, and I have to say... it looked awesome on them!

They have two different style Cardigans, and they come in various colors. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and get them before they are gone! If you want to experience an opportunity like this in the future, join me on  Crowdtap!

America's Perfect Woman #Pageant

Did you know that there is a crown out there for America's Perfect Woman? I had no idea! I can't even begin to imagine the stress and dedication one woman has to bear by being crowned as America's Perfect Woman! It can't be easy, and it is definitely not for everyone. It takes a strong passionate woman to take on the job!

Laura Ngo Pucker, a friend of mine has just been crowned, and I am very happy for her! Laura and I met awhile back while I was living in Florida. Not only is she stunning with an amazingly funny personality, she also is very talented. She has really inspired my creative side and I can't thank her enough for that. We even took a crochet class together. Unfortunately, I did not do so well in the class. ;)

Laura, my personal congrats to you on achieving this honor! You deserve it, and I am sure you will be an excellent role model for America's Perfect Woman. If not, we are all coming after you! Just kidding. ;)

Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell Review- New Hit Show! #TotallyBiased

I belong to Crowdtap, and they sent me a nice digital kit for the premiere show of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. It was so much fun to have an inside look at Kamau's brilliant and hilarious mind before the show aired!

The show premiered on August 9 at 11:00 p.m. est. If you missed the premiere, don't worry! FX will repeat it. For more information, check it out here.

My husband and I love to get together with good friends. We are always looking for excuses to entertain and who doesn't love comedy?

In my opinion, the show has great potential! I think we all agreed that Kamau is hilarious, and is going to do really well. He reminds me of Seth Rogan. Not so much with his personality, but more in his looks and expressions. You decide!

Kamau's personality reminds of George Carlin at times. Not so much in the vulgar sense, but more in the way he picks apart everything and has a deep thought connected to it. I can't wait to see his next episode! Favorite quote of the night: Would it be any better if they called it "Pop and Frisk" and gave you a soda after?

I have one critique. During the most recent show Kamau had an opportunity to interview people on the street. One of the women he interviewed kept cursing in front of her little girl. I didn't think it was right, and it really annoyed me.

Overall, I recommend you check him out. I think you will find the show to be quite entertaining to watch. If you get an opportunity, check Kamau out on Twitter he comes up with some of the funniest tweets! He also has a Facebook page listed as well and if you are in the NY area, you can apply to watch him live! Thumbs up on Totally Biased!

Melt Mobile Stamford, CT Review

I recently had a chance to check out Melt Mobile. I really enjoyed my Caprice Grilled Cheese Sandwich. My Husband had an old fashioned Grilled Cheese. The bread was perfectly grilled, the cheese was melted to perfection (maybe even mixed with two different kinds, not sure), and the containers were just the right size for our sandwiches.

As with any grilled cheese sandwich there was a little grease, but hardly the amount I had expected. The Ladies aka the owners were such nice friendly women. I really enjoy my experience and I recommend you check it out. My only gripe are the hours. They are open from Tuesday through Friday 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. I would love to see them open on the weekends, and in a different location. The parking for Veterans Park is not great, but it is worth the trip. I hear they are on Bedford Street once in awhile which is much better in terms of parking. They accept cash or charge which is very convenient!

So this is the famous Melt Mobile Truck. How cute huh?

Here is a photo of the owners. Are these Ladies on a Grilled Cheese Diet? They have lost so much weight since they were on 3 Days To Open with Bobby Flay on the Food Network Show.  Maybe they can make us the Grilled Cheese Diet Sandwich! ;)

As soon as you walk up, you will spot this regular menu along with a specialty menu for items they are cooking for the week.

 I ordered the Grilled Cheese Caprice which I believe was a weekly special.

My Husband had the Original Melt aka Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

Cute packaging for their sandwiches. 

For more info, you can find these ladies on

One tip I will give you, check out their Facebook page before you head on over just in case something is wrong with their truck. You never know what might happen, and they are usually good about notifying their Facebook fans about any issues.

Growing old with the love of your life.... Disney's UP

I couldn't help but post this adorable collage.  Disney's Up is one of my favorite movies. I cried like a baby when I watched it. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it!

I recently married the love of my life, and this photo definitely represents how I feel. Are any of you brides or newlyweds out there feeling the same way?
