Our Review:

DC's Legends of Tomorrow is Awesome! My hubby was so excited to get the complete first season on Blu-ray. We love all of the Super Hero movies and this one is great. An unlikely set of Hero's travel through time to save the future. Some of this group are bad and some of them are good but they all want to save the world. I like Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) He is a great actor.

There are 16 episodes on this Blu-ray so you will be entertained for hours. We like how they have characters from The Flash and The Arrow come together to form Legends of Tomorrow. It's fun seeing how Rip Hunter assembles this group of Hero's. We love watching this series on TV and now we can watch all episodes again.

There are some cool special features as well. A Fantastic Voyage: Touring the Waverider Set. This was fun to watch what goes on behind he scenes. You will not want to miss The comic-con panel, gag reel and more.

Miraclesuit Review...

Thanks to Miraclesuit I am super excited to tell you about some of their amazing products!

My hubby and I are going to Hawaii for our wedding anniversary soon. I sure am going to be in style and look fabulous in my new Miraclesuit swimsuit!

Check out how fun and colorful it is...

It fits me perfectly and really does make me look thinner! The adjustable straps are such a brilliant idea. I am very impressed with the high quality of this swimsuit. Another thing I love is how comfortable it is on.

The only swimsuit that makes you look 10 pounds lighter in 10 seconds. Miraclesuit swimwear delivers fit, form, and function to show off your beautiful curves - and your confidence. Made with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ spandex for a long lasting fit.

Next, I would like to tell about the stunning Shirred Coverup Skirt and Coverup Short I received...


These look absolutely fantastic with my swimsuit! I can't wait to wear them for different things we will be doing while we are on our vacation. The skirt will be so pretty to stroll the beach in and the shorts are going to be super for when we go jet skiing.

They both give me great support and look wonderful on. My sweet hubby said wow you look so beautiful when I tried everything on for him. I think it is really cool how stunning these make you look since they do a good job holding everything in.

After we are done playing in the water I am thrilled to wear my new Draped Cover Up Dress by Magicsuit...

It is awesome that I can wear this Magicsuit Cover Up casual and also dress it up. I plan on slipping on a cute pair of high heels and wearing this to dinner at a restaurant we are going to that is right on the beach. I love everything I received and can't wait to get to Hawaii to wear them!

Pulling it all together with a uniquely fashion forward point of view through exclusive designs and silhouettes, Miraclesuit® builds confidence. Their design team's strategic use of shirring and draping emphasizes your curves and draws the eye away from areas you would like to de-emphasize.

The Miraclesuit® heritage of fit, form and function begins with their unique and innovative fabric, Miratex®. Exclusively theirs, this fabric delivers three times the control of ordinary swimwear fabrics, without relying on inner linings and constrictive control panels to shape and trim. The high concentration of Lycra spandex means that Miraclesuit® keep their shape… and yours.

Look 10 lbs. lighter in 10 seconds®… the time it takes to slip on a Miraclesuit®!


Make sure to head on over to Miraclesuit to check out all of their fabulous summer items! I know you will love them as much as I do.

Thank you so very much Miraclesuit for the awesome products and customer service!

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray™ I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

SUPERGIRL: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON including all 20 episodes from Season 1 plus enhanced content including deleted scenes and gag reel will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on August 9, 2016!

Born on the doomed planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped at the same time as her cousin, Superman, but didn’t arrive on Earth until years later after being lost in the Phantom Zone. Raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin.

Years later, at age 24, and now living in National City while working as an assistant for Catco Worldwide Media mogul Cat Grant, Kara has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out. All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. With the help of Daily Planet photographer James Olsen, her bioengineer sister Alex, and the research of the super-secret, off-the-grid Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), who are tasked with keeping the Earth safe from aliens, Kara takes to the skies to protect her world. (TBC)

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist (Glee), Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy), Mehcad Brooks (About Last Night) and Jeremy Jordan (Smash), with David Harewood (Homeland)and Calista Flockhart (Brothers and Sisters).  Season One guest stars include Dean Cain, Peter Facinelli, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Laura Benanti and Helen Slater. Based on the characters from DC Comics, Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Ali Adler and Sarah Schechter.

Our Review:

Supergirl is a fabulous series! She is Superman's cousin so you know she is going to have all of the same cool powers! There are a lot of super hero shows on TV with male leads. It is so awesome to see a female lead super hero. Melissa Benoist is the perfect fit for this roll! She is so likable as a normal girl Kara and then she comes out as Supergirl and saves the day. I like the romance in this series, there is plenty of action too.

We really enjoyed seeing the different DC Comic book characters that show up in this series. My hubby and I couldn't get enough of this show on TV and now we can have the complete first season on Blu-ray to watch it all over again. There are 20 episodes on three discs.  

There are also tons of special features that you won't want to miss. 
  • Lots of deleted scenes.
  • Supergirl Comic-Con Panel- We liked listening to all of the actors and directors talk about the show 
  • The Man from Mars- which is J'onn J'onzz from DC Comics
  • A World Left Behind- Talks about the planet Krypton
  • Gag Reel- I love watching Gag Reels, it's so funny to see the actors when they mess up their lines

Scooby-Doo and WWE Blu-ray Review...

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray™ I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Available on Digital HD and on Blu-ray™ & DVD 8/9

It’s pedal to the metal as Scooby-Doo, Shaggy and the gang team up with the superstars of WWE in this hi-octane, all-new original movie! When Scooby and Mystery Inc. visit an off-road racing competition, it’s not long before strange events start to occur. A mysterious phantom racer, known only as Inferno, is causing chaos and determined to sabotage the race.

It’s up Scooby-Doo, Shaggy and their new driving partner, The Undertaker, to save the race and solve the mystery. Along with other WWE superstars such as Triple H, Paige and Shamus, it’s time to start your engine and your appetite because Scooby-Doo and WWE are chasing down adventure and laughs just for you!

Our Review:

We have always loved Scooby-Doo and the gang. My hubby also likes to watch WWE so he was really excited to get this Scooby-Doo movie that stars a lot of the WWE superstars. This movie is called Curse of the Speed Demon. It was fun watching the WWE characters in an off road race against each other.

There are so many funny parts in the movie you will be laughing all the way through it. Like when Fred says the only time we stop is when the mystery is solved and Scooby said or when we run away! Haha.

When they were in the race, Inferno jumps on the mystery machine's windshield and said you will both pay. Shaggy turns on the wiper blades and it starts smacking Inferno in the face. That one cracked me up. Then he said I will stop at nothing and Shaggy said but we will and he slams on the brakes, Inferno goes flying through the air. This is a fun family movie that everyone will enjoy. If you or your kids like Scooby-Doo then you don't want too miss this one!

You will enjoy the fun special features as well. There is a featurette called Revved up with the Monster Jam Scooby-Doo truck. With a couple extra cartoons as well. Your kids will love them.

The Five Strings are AMAZING!!

The Five Strings are a performing family band made up of five siblings from St. George Utah. Ranging in ages from 6 to 16, their audiences are amazed at the variety of music they play at such a young age. In addition to violin, the group features mandolin, guitar, piano, ukulele, as well as singing and dancing.
Check out one of their videos below...

The Five Strings have recently returned to Utah from Nashville Tennessee, where they were under instruction of some of the top music and dance teachers. The Five Strings have performed for a variety of audiences from all over the world. A few of their favorite venues they have made appearances at include; Branson Missouri, Tuacahn Amphitheater, Nashville, TN, and performing for the top resorts throughout the islands of Hawaii.

In 2013 they released their first album and since then have released 2 more. The Five Strings' love and dedication of music shows from the second they raise their bows. They wish to thank all of those that have had an impact in their lives so far.

I was blessed to be able to finally meet them all today at the America's Freedom Festival! I got goosebumps as I listen to them and watched them perform. They are all very talented and AMAZING!

If you ever get the chance to go watch them perform make sure you do! You can visit their website to see when they are playing next and like them on FB here. My husband and I listened to some of their music on our way home from their show and we love it!
