Camo Hoody for Dogs by Fou Fou Dog

I received the following product in exchange for review all thoughts are my own.

My fuzzy loves coats, hes pretty obsessed with them. I would say he has at least 8 at this point and when I pulled this one out of the box he went crazy running around and what you might call bouncing off the walls.

I called him over and he stood on his back legs and put his front paws out and I slipped the Camo Hoody over his head and then paw by paw. He loves it and if we take it off of him he will keep looking at it then you as if saying put my clothes back on me mommy!

This hoody is very well made and isn't just for looks like so many are that are out there. This one will keep my fur baby warm this winter while his hair is growing from his summer shave.

These retail for $31.99 and the price is awesome for how well this is made. I know some who don't have the joys of a fur baby may not understand how that is a fair price for a "coat for a dog." (I've had things like this asked of me before.) Think of it this way, the "dog" as you call him is my "child" and would you not spend $30 on your child if they needed a jacket?

Check out Fou Fou Dog for all your pet needs.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Forever Pure Beauty giveaway

Logo Forever Pure 
I am so excited to be talking about Forever Pure Beauty to you right now. This has been a long time coming and I need to share this with you about this amazing company of all natural makeup. It came in an adorable bag as you can see, and there was even a travel sized mirror included. How awesome is that?
I was looking forward to trying all three of the products out that I was sent. They included the oil Control Powder Primer (which I need desperately for my skin type!), Mineral Foundation and the Cream Concealer. I have a hard time with makeups and so to find something that was as pure as the skin cleansers that I like to use was awesome. I have not been able to find a oil controlling powder that actually did what it said but this definitely did. If you have oily or combination skin than I definitely recommend this. I have a hard time wearing foundations because where my skin is oily it will cake up. The combination of the primer, the concealer for the blemishes and the mineral powder made me look flawless.

The company is not wallet busting for the products that they provide which I like and they can even send you samples of products that you are wanting to test out before you commit to a bigger purchase. They are also more than just makeup. They have skincare and haircare as well.
Make sure that you check them out on their sites to keep up to date and to try them out for yourself.
They get a huge thumbs up from me :)
Check them out on Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest

You all know how much I love beauty products and I hope you love them too! Check out this awesome giveaway and good luck!

Adge's Top 6 Cheesy Horror Picks -Available on Netflix-

Halloween season gives us a feeling of nostalgia that causes us to dust off our old VHS horror collection and spend the whole month of October cuddled up on our couches. This year, there's no need to bust out ancient electronics; all of my favorite cheesy Halloween movies are now on Netflix. So let me introduce....

Adge's Top Six
Cheesy Horror Picks
-Available on Netflix-

1. Pet Sematary

Cheesy like all good horror movies should be. It stars the world's cutest evil toddler and Herman Munster at his creepy, cool best. No other movie movie will make you contemplate the disadvantages to reincarnation like this Steven King classic. 3.5/5 imaginary points

2. Red State

This movie can only loosely be called horror. It's unintentionally funny, like all Kevin Smith movies. The obvious rip at Westboro Baptist Church is glorious and it stars my favorite actor, John Goodman. 5/5

3. Evil Dead 2

I don't pretend to understand why Sam Raimi decided to make a sequel that is identical to the original with only a slight casting change. All I know is that I love it best and it opened the doors for Army of Darkness to be made. 3/5

4. The Frighteners

Michael J. Fox hires ghosts to scare people and then charges his victims for ghost removal. It's a genius psychic goldmine. A serial killer's ghost tries to muck things up for our protagonist and his love interest, but every thing works out after a very climatic end. 3.5/5

5. Tucker & Dale VS Evil

A hilarious case of stereotyping and coincidence pins these two lovable rednecks against a group of preppy college kid in slapstick horror brilliance. There are lessons to be learned here, but you won't be paying attention. You'll be laughing at the guy that falls into the wood chipper. 4/5

6. Cabin in the Woods

Combine all of my previous picks together (if you're thinking 'Scary Movie', slap yourself) and make the audience self aware, and this is what you get. Why must everyone in a horror movie die? Is there a purpose to it all? This movie tries to explain it while keeping you good and spooked. 4.5/5

So there it is, the reason why I'm probably on a missing persons list. I'll come out of my house in November, when I'm trying to avoid Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving.

7 Terrifying Haunted Attractions Around The World

The Winchester Mystery House is a place I have been obsessed with since I was younger. The mystery is just something I love and can't resist oddly placed doors and stairs. If you have seen Rose Red or read the book then you know the gist of what is so strange about the Winchester house because it follows the same story. I believe Rose red may have been based on it but I am not sure.

If you would like to see more about the Winchester house or some of the other awesomely spooky places from across the globe then Check out: 7 Terrifying Haunted Attractions Around The World

Disney Live in Evansville Indiana oct 27th review

I received tickets to the event for my honest opinion. Although free the tickets did not affect my opinions contained in this post.

I got to go to Disney Live as part of a blogger program. I am here to share my experience with you of this wondrous event. Tickets for this event ranged from $22-$33 a ticket depending on the location of the seats. The magic starts as you enter the building and see the ushers all dressed in suits after that was the area where they were selling food and souvenirs. 

I admit the food got me when I saw fruit flavored kettle corn from a company in the area  

This put me in the mood of the "movie" atmosphere. 

Adge and Josie went with me to see Disney Live and we had a blast!

Isn't Josie's outfit the cutest?

Alchemist from Color Me Monthly October 2013

I received the following product in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Halloween is my favorite time a year and black polish is an old friend so when I opened the box needless to say I was excited. Inside was this beautiful black polish with one of my addictions (later I'd find out there was 2 loves of mine in this polish.) GLITTER!!!! My friends looked at my latest and realized how obsessed I really am with glitter.

Mixed metals has been a big fashion trend and this has that! Makes me think of stars when I look at it. The name is perfect for the Halloween Season,

Double, double toil and trouble; 
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

Adore nail polish in Blushing Bride & He's the Lucky One

Adore nail polish in Blushing Bride & He's the Lucky One
I received the following product in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

While looking at Adore Nail polish collection it was hard to pick and I was seriously torn! There are 2 things I am lacking in my polish collection. Those are Pastels/ light colors and Reds so when I saw Blushing bride and He;s the lucky one I had to add them to my collection.

These retail for $8.
I know for non nail polish addicts thats a lot of moolah but I am here to tell you these are worth it! Here is how I value my polish after being in the collecting game for awhile. How many coats does it take, how versatile is it, dry time, how long does it last.

So lets start the break down!

Blushing Bride
"Blushing Bride" (matte light purple)

I was amazed when this came in and I opened up the bottle and put it across my nail. Do you know why I was amazed? This was a 1 coater!
This is me after opening the package! I had 1 bare nail and just slapped it on and didn't even wait for it to dry! Once I saw it was a 1 coater I snapped a pic. I really love this color more than I thought I would (maybe my taste is changing?) Ready for the Glitter Bomb?

Keep Calm and Game on Giveaway

There is a few things over the years that I have used to keep calm. I used to crochet to relieve stress and create something beautiful. Now I paint my nails, doodle, and randomly crochet. I kind of slacked on crochet after a year of doing nothing but, I guess I burned myself out. I love playing games on my iphone though because I can take it everywhere! No matter how you keep calm you should enter this giveaway!

Let's Go Shopping!

The following post is a sponsored post. All thoughts are my own and are not influenced by others.

I don't know about you but I love to shop online! I find some of the best deals on beauty products that I normally wouldn't be able to buy. Nine times out of ten I can go shopping see something I want and look it up online and buy it at half the cost. I have had people say they don't have time for that and ask how I do it. Well what motivates me to do is that I can buy more if I pay less. I am a polishaholic and thats one thing I search for deals on because polish isn't cheap. An example would be China Glaze nail polish. Most places its anywhere from $6-$9 a bottle but on Cherry Culture They generally sell them for $3.75 and it includes hard to find colors you can't find anywhere else. If I didn't shop around I would never have known about them and would have a lot less polish than I do.

5 Billion minutes shopping on tablets! Thats a crazy number especially when you think about a few years back when people were saying that tablets were impossible. I am so glad apple laughed in the face of that challenge and came out with the iPad. I use my iPad for everything when I am at home. I like shopping from the iPad instead of my iPhone because I can see the desktop view instead of the mobile and can see more at a time. 

If you are wanting to know about the latest sales for beauty products then I recommend checking out Nouveau cheap! I check her blog out at least once a week and her instagram about 3 to 4 times a day. Not only does she tell you where to get the latest deals on drugstore makeup brands she also does product reviews and as any polishaholic knows, swatches are golden when picking what polish to buy.

Whether you are shopping mobile or on a desktop keep on looking for those awesome deals
