Dryel At Home Dry Cleaner

15 Mar

Have you ever purchased the cutest blouse or the most amazing jacket or dress then got home and looked at the label and it says: DRY CLEAN ONLY. How did you feel? The first thing I say is “Maybe I can wash it on permanent press and pray it comes out perfect.” I also think of those dry cleaner prices and refuse to go unless I absolutely have no choice. Yes, some dry cleaners do a good job then there are those that just don’t and I’ve waisted my money and time.

There are certain clothes that I can get away with putting in the washing machine and the ones I can’t I hope not to get a grease stain or any type of mark on.

I was very excited to be a part of the 2018 Dryel Brand Ambassador Program. Having a product way better than a dry cleaner that’s affordable, convenient, gets the job done and I can have right in my apartment.

Let me introduce you to Dryel.

Dryel® uses a patented process to clean your dry clean only and special care clothes.

• The heat of your dryer activates the cleaning solution in the ULTRAcleaning Cloth™ to release a steam that removes body soils and odors from the clothes.

• The Fabric Protection Bag maintains the optimal balance of cleaning agents and heat, allowing the steam to work thoroughly through the clothes, and then slowly vents the vapors out of the bag and dryer.

• Dryel Booster Spray includes extra cleaning agents to remove stains, and add freshness to heavily soiled areas prior to putting the garments through the in-dryer system.

Dryel can be used in two ways: 1. Dryel quickly refreshes and renews clothes in just 15 minutes. This is a great way to remove odors and restore shape between trips to a professional dry cleaner. 2. In just 30 minutes, Dryel thoroughly cleans special care clothes. This means that you can skip a trip to a professional dry cleaner, and avoid harsh dry cleaning chemicals.

Some heat is needed to activate the ULTRAcleaning Cloth, but you don’t want to overexpose the clothes to high temperatures. For best results, use medium heat.

Do not use Dryel on leather, velvet, suede, fur, silk or rayon. Always test garments for colorfastness before use.

Dryel is available for purchase in retail stores throughout the United States, and in select stores in Canada. For more information about Dryel products and where to find them, visit http://dryel.com/.

Each Dryel Starter Kit (MSRP:$9.99)

I can’t wait to show you the results when I test out Dryel.

Peter Rabbit #peterrabbitmovie 

9 Feb

Peter Rabbit hits theaters today and my kids and I want to let you know we had had an awesome time when we saw a special screening thanks to Sony Pictures. We laughed and laughed and laughed. All the animals in the movie were special in their own way. There’s a rooster in the film that cracks me up and the human characters aren’t bad either. Peter Rabbit and his siblings are out to take back what belongs to them with help from all their friends. 
Synopsis: PETER RABBIT, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door.

DOMHNALL GLEESON (Mr. McGregor) and PETER RABBIT were at the screening and we attended a Garden Party after the movie  at the restaurant Parm. The kid friendly food was delicious and there was even a brownie ice cream sundae bar. The gift bags had Peter Rabbit ears and other cute toys inside. 

This was a great Sunday morning just having a fun filled day with my kids, Sony and friends. So like I mentioned it’s out today. Grab your tickets early. We gave this movie 10 stars. All ages welcomed.

Check out the trailer here: http://www.peterrabbit-movie.com/

Disclosure: This was a hosted event. Thank you Sony Pictures for inviting my family to the screening. Opinions are mine and my kids 100% as always. 

LG TwinWash At @BestBuy #ad @LGUS

8 Feb

Have you heard about LG’s TwinWash system at Best Buy? I’m very excited about this washer. Not only do these washers have mega capacity to tackle any size load, they are energy efficient efficient while giving you the beat cleaning performance. households have chosen LG laundry over any other brand!

I love doing laundry but I hate going to crowded laundromats. I’m there for at least two to theeee hours depending on how much laundry I have and how many people are there. There’s never enough machines and sometimes they don’t do a thorough clean so I have to clean the clothes twice. Very annoying. Don’t get me started on the dryers that take so many quarters to dry. It’s so convenient when you have the right machine. I can wash and still do other things. Plus I can save so much money and don’t have to deal with the public and waiting for machines to become available to just do half the job. I want full cleaning. I have two kids left in school, I work and my two older sons work so clothes need to be washed weekly. Also changing bed sheets and fresh washcloths and towels are a must. I know LG has my back when it comes to these loads. 

With LG’s TwinWash system you get the best of both worlds. For small loads that can’t wait (The sweatpants after hot yoga, the red shirt in a pile of whites, the dirty school uniform on a Sunday night) there is the LG SideKick pedestal washer. You can even use it simultaneously while you do a bigger load up top on your LG Front load washer.

That’s definitely the kind of excitement I’m talking about. Here’s the link to shop and from 1/11-4/25 receive up to $500 off a LG laundry solution for your home. http://bby.me/m3qxa

Disclosure: I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. Opinions are mine 100% as always. 

Finding The Perfect Family Car #spon

31 Jan

This is a sponsored post. Opinions are mine 100% as always.

What is the perfect family car? That depends on a lot. How big is your family? How much storage do you need? Is a mini van better than a SUV? Can I afford the one I really want? Safety, gas mileage, gps, Bluetooth enabled with my phone. 

I’ve never purchased a car because living in NY with a car makes no sense. Of course my kids bug me about buying a car but it just ain’t gonna happen at least not now. I only drive when a car company loans me cars or when I rent cars. As much as I want to keep them I know the hassle of moving the car (alternate street parking), buying gas and having insurance will leave me working three jobs. 

My ideal family car will be room for about 7. I love big cars (SUV’s, Jeeps) but would settle for a comfortable and safe wagon. I have a few in mind.  Test driving is a must and I’ve tested quite a few so that’s easy. Lots of leg room because my boys are tall. Love drive assist which is very handy on road trips. Drive assist reads the road and pulls you back into your lane if you drift without putting your blinker on. Would also love TVs for the kids but they would probably be on their phones, Nintendo switch and 3ds so if it’s not included I wouldn’t pay extra. I love having heated seats (winter) and of course air conditioning for the summer. 

Yes we should all want a safe vehicle and driving should be fun and stress free but to some it isn’t so being alert and having a good night rest for those long trips are worth it. There are so many new features in cars now to help you stay focused and alert.

Revolutionize The Way You Eat With Innit App #EatInnit 

18 Jan

Those of you who follow my blog and social know I love cooking. I love shopping, preparing and creating meals for family and friends.  I have an enormous collection of recipe books and sometimes I just come up with recipes off the top of my noggin. I prefer my meals to be done between 30 minutes and an hour or even less than that depending what I’m cooking. If I’m slow cooking it doesn’t matter because I can start the night before or that morning at it’s ready when everyone gets home. 

I also love tutorials and step by step videos which I usually go on you tube, Facebook or food websites. 

I was excited to discover Innit—an eating technology company whose new app facilitates everyday cooking. It does this by connecting all the steps you take to get a meal on the table (something that’s never been done before). 

When you open the Innit app, it asks you about your dietary preferences, your allergies, likes and dislikes—then, it suggests personalized meals for your entire family. So, it gives you an entire meal rather than just a one recipe. It auto-creates grocery lists to make shopping super easy, and when you’re ready to cook, it’s got you covered with easy, how-to videos. It even sequences all the instructions to make sure all parts of your meal are done at once!

I was surprised with just how convenient Innit made everything—You can get dinner on the table in 30 minutes every night for a week!

Here’s how Innit is making healthy, everyday cooking easier in 2018:

Innit recommends healthy and personalized meals based on your food preferences. Going paleo? Innit has got you covered. Vegan? Delicious recipes await. Love the sound of a Steak and Kale salad but avoiding red meat? Swap out the steak for Salmon and the meal instructions and how-to videos will update seamlessly.

Meal planning is one of the best ways to eat healthy and avoid succumbing to cravings, but it takes time! Innit can do the planning for you, offering you personalized shopping lists, instructions, and step-by-step guides that save you precious time and energy and keep you on track with your goals.
Innit connects with GE Appliances and BSH Home Connect technology to turn your smart oven on and off at the appropriate time, sending custom instructions to ensure optimal cooking and notify you when your meal is ready! That means less time in the kitchen, and more time to spend on your other goals, like working out, reading more, or taking more relaxing bubble baths.

Home cooks can download the IOS and Android app for free at http://www.innit.com, which features meal planning, cooking instructions, and smart shopping lists for healthy meals such as Broccoli Quinoa Bowl, Sesame Nori Mushroom Bowl, and Steak Kale Salad.

A link to the Innit website:

>> https://innit.com/

I already found amazing recipes I can’t wait to try like the Penne Chili Garlic with Salmom, Broccoli and Capers, Guacamole Turkey Wrap with Chili Lime Jicama and Penne Pesto with Broccoli and Capers. How delicious and healthy do those sound? 

I encourage you to give this easy app a try. I love the videos and step by step instructions actually showing how the food is prepared. Once I get my ingredients for the above recipes I will post pictures on my social media. Make sure you’re following me and follow Innit too:

#Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle Review 

27 Dec

Who remembers the first Jumanji ? I love that movie.  I definitely felt like I was on a adventure and I wanted to buy the game immediately after just to see what would happen. Ha. Well long story short never purchased the game but saw the movie more than once. 

My family and I recently attended two advanced screenings of the new Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle movie. Yes we saw it twice because it was so funny and our favorite actors are in the movie. Come on Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black. We also enjoyed Nick Jonas character as well. 

Before the screening Sony invited families to Dave and Busters in Times Square for food, fun and games. We won lots of swag, stuffed our faces and played lots of games. We enjoyed this very much. 

The new Jumanji was very good. The story starts with the characters in high school then they come across the Jumanji game and next thing you know they’re older and fighting to stay alive while trying to save Jumanji. Jack Black played the role of a female very well. I would have picked Karen Gillian’s character. She kicked ass (literally).

I noticed a few Sony products in the movie. Sony headphones and a Sony radio. Keep a look out. 

Snippet: In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers in detention are sucked into the world of Jumanji. When they discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of, they are immediately thrust into the game’s jungle setting, into the bodies of their avatars, played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – Jumanji plays you. They’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they’ll be stuck in the game forever.

Sony Square has opened a new interactive exhibit that enables visitors to help save Jumanji through an interactive game that utilizes haptic technology from Sony, which recreates the sense of touch by producing dynamic and expressive vibrations.  


For this exhibit, visitors put on 3D glasses and a haptic vest, pick a character for the game, and get “dropped” into the jungle. The goal of the game is to retrieve a jewel that will protect Jumanji from grave danger. But the quest is not easy. There are animals in the jungle that stand in the way of success. As the player travels through the game, the haptic vest will enable them to feel the stones, branches and coconuts the animals throw at them to slow their pursuit of the jewel.  


The Jumanji exhibit will be featured at Sony Square NYC from November 30 through January 8, 2018.


The Jumanji experience is restricted to those over six years old. Children under 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.


Sony Square NYC is located at 25 Madison Avenue and is open to the public Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.sony.com/square-nyc/.

Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle rated PG-13 is in theaters. Check it out now.

Momtrends Holiday Soirée 2017 #MTHoliday #hosted

4 Dec

I was so pleased to join Momtrends once again for their holiday soirée at Splashlight Studios. I walked into a room full of amazing brands waiting to show me all their great gifts for the holidays and beyond. 

First stop was the manicure station from Mani or Pedi. I particularly don’t like getting my nails done first because I always mess them up as I need to use my phone to take pictures so I put it off till later. Mani or Pedi had amazing colors and definitely hooked bloggers up for the holidays. You can book at home or office appointments and they also cater to spa parties, office events or weddings. Check them out on Instagram @maniorpedi 

Name Bubbles have the best labels to keep me and my kids organized. There were jars of hot cocoa mix to decorate. I wrote in calligraphy. These labels make great stocking stuffers. Check out all the different styles on their Instagram @namebubbles

Riders by Lee always have cute jeans and plaid shirts. I love their clothes. Comfy and very affordable. They had a style challenge for bloggers to come up with a outfit for a certain theme. Mine was for shopping and errands. I created a cute outfit that I would definitely wear. I loved everything I put on the mannequin. I want that entire outfit. Check out @ridersbylee on Instagram. 

Jarlsberg cheese set up shop and also had a challenge. We had to create a cheese/ fruit platter. You could either eat it or leave it there for pics. I love Jarslberg cheeses especially in my sandwiches. Original, Lite, Special Reserve and Smoked are so delicious. They also have Cheese Crisp Crackers which are available in 4 different varieties. My family enjoys those as well. Check out @JarlsbergUSA on Twitter. 

My Cents Of Style. I just want to say I immediately fell in love with their clothes and accessories. The blanket scarves they gave out are gorgeous and I enjoy wearing mine. I also have to get a few outfits and I just ordered their gloves. They have a 2-FOR-TUESDAY where you able to get two items for a great price. So I purchased the gloves I was eyeing at the event plus another pair for only $15. At the soirée there was a raffle and I won a blanket and reindeer slippers for my daughter. She was so excited. Looks like every Tuesday I will be taking advantage of their great deals. Go to Instagram now to see what I’m talking about @centsofstyle 

Red Velvet NYC gourmet desserts were in the house. I decorated my red velvet cupcake with frosting and couldn’t wait to eat it. They have pre-measured ingredients and recipes to bake desserts and deliver right to your door. Everything from Chocolate Truffles, Eggnog Cookies, Sugar Cookies, Nutella Cupcakes, Pecan Maple Cupcakes, Red Velvet Cupcakes and so much more. Red Velvet NYC gave us a baking kit to take home and make gingerbread cookies with the kids. Everything is pre-measured and in its own package. Just follow directions. My kids and I love baking. I love this company. Find them on Instagram @redvelvetnyc 

Second Chance Toys Charity Organization were collecting plastic toys for children in need so I gladly handed in a few. If you would like to donate toys to kids in need and keep plastic out of landfills head to their Instagram page @secondchancetoys for more info. 

Hasbro has a new fun family friendly game called Hearing Things. It’s a lip-reading challenge game that comes with speech cancelling headphones and  guess the phrase fast. There’s 600 phrases and a built-in-timer and sounds.  @hasbro on Instagram for all the fun.

Noble Vines Wines made sure they came to impress and get some of us tipsy. Love the 667Pinot Noir, 515Rose, 242SauvignonBlanc, 337Cabernet Sauvignon. These make great hostess gifts. Ok you can purchase for yourself too. I’m saving my bottle. Check out @noblevineswine on Instagram. 

O -Venture has the best key ring I’ve ever had and I can find my keys so fast I should’ve had this a long time ago. It’s literally a big O and we were given one and I haven’t lost my keys yet. I picked out a pretty blue. Sometimes when I don’t carry a bag for school pick up or a quick errand I just grab my big O and go. It’s like wearing a bangle just with keys attached. You can also add a card case to it for credit cards. I love mine. Their on Instagram @shopoventure 

I would also like to thank Boxed Water, Kidz Bop 36, Living Proof, Pearhead and Thimblepress. 

Big shout out to Momtrends and staff for another amazing holiday soirée. As always I appreciate you. Amazing time with friends and brands.

All Aboard Carnival Cruise Line For A #CarnivalCuisine Experience (New Ship Spring 2018)

18 Sep

I had the pleasure of being invited on Carnival Sunshine Cruise for a #carnivalcuisine experience. When you see me post things about food you know I’m either throwing it down in the kitchen, eating at the best restaurants or creating a new recipe. I also work in a restaurant so I’m definitely a foodie lover. 

I went on a vacation with my son on the Carnival Vista back in November 2016 for an 11-day cruise and we had a blast. I love cruising and enjoying great food and Carnival sure knows how to please your palette. They cater to everyone’s needs and if you have a food allergy or dietary restrictions they accommodate you. 

On board Carnival Sunshine we were in for a treat. We ate at the Fahrenheit Steakhouse. The waitstaff passed around appetizers which melted in my mouth. Loved the mini lobster sandwiches. To start I chose the Gulf Coast Shrimp with Yukon Gold Blini and Lemon Butter Avocado Cream. I also chose the Classic Caesar Salad. For my main course the Double Cut Lamb Chop and Loin with Crispy Quinoa, Carrot Cumin and Port Wine was amazing. I also had Yukon Gold Mash with Wasabi. For dessert the Chocolate Melting Cake was perfect. There were also cocktails, wine or soda. 

Did you know Carnival is America’s Cruise Line sailing 5 million guest a year? Carnival also sails more children and military personnel than any other cruise line. Carnival also recently launched their first sailings to Cuba and just announced 5 additional voyages to the island in 2018. In Spring 2018 Carnival will introduce their second Vista Class Ship Carnival Horizon. 

Carnival Horizon will leave from New York May to September 2018 for four -to eight day cruises. I hope to be on one of those with my family. Carnival Horizon will be the first in the fleet to feature Dr. Seuss WaterWorks with more new features still being announced. 

On Carnival Vista my son and I enjoyed the 24 hour pizzeria and Guy’s Burger Joint. I also enjoyed tacos and lobster rolls. On Carnival Horizon new food venues like Guy’s Pig N Anchor featuring a variety of BBQ favorites smoked right on board over hickory and cherry wood using Guy’s signature recipes, rubs and spices. Another new food venue will be Seafood Shack a New England style seaside spot which will feature crab cake sliders, lobster rolls, fish & chips, lobster rolls and much more.

5 Sep

It’s nearly indisputable that Sunday brunch is the best meal of the week, and what is brunch without eggs? 

Nellie’s Free Range Eggs come from the first Certified Humane farm in the country where the hens have as much, or as little, access to outside as they want.

Nellie’s Free Range Eggs and Cabot Creamery Co-operative Cheese asked me to come up with a brunch recipe using these two stellar brands. 

We love eggs no matter what time of day. There’s so many ways eggs can be used. I must say I can’t have eggs without cheese unless I’m baking or making pancakes or waffles. We are cheese fanatics and you know cheese go great with lots of things. 

The farm families that own Cabot Creamery Co-operative love what they do. And they’ve been doing it for a long time—every single day since 1919. 

I love my eggs very cheesy, scrambled eggs, omelets, etc. For my brunch I decided to create a one pot frittata type of egg recipe. 



 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs 6 or 7 eggs depending on size of pan and amount of people you’re feeding. ( I fed 6 people) 

**Cabot Cheese Legacy Collection Alpine Cheddar Cheese (you decide how much to put in) just cut up in pieces

**Cabot Cheese Gatlic and Herb Cheddar Cheese

**Cabot Cheese Seriously Sharp Premium Naturaly Aged Cheddar Cheese 

**You can use whatever flavor cheese you want. 

1 Red Bell Pepper chopped up 

1 Orange Bell Pepper chopped up 

2 Whole Tomatoes chopped up 

2 whole onions

I used garlic powder, onion powder and salt & pepper. 


In my nonstick skillet I cracked 6 to 7 eggs. My daughter whisked them up. My veggies and cheese were already choppep. I added them inside the egg mixture with my seasonings and stirred it up. 

My oven was already preheated to 350 degrees. (Check your oven for your right temperature). You don’t want the frittata to burn before it can cook all the way through. 

Yes, skillets can go in the oven. I tried to avoid opening the oven too much because that slows down the cooking process. It took roughly 45 minutes to an hour. Cooked to perfection. It was well worth the wait. Everyone enjoyed it and I can say that will be a part of our breakfast/ brunch or dinner quite often. It can also be put on bread and made into a sandwich. My daughter did that.
