Swimsuits Direct Review...

Thanks to Swimsuits Direct, I am super excited to tell you about their fabulous products!

My hubby and I are going to Mexico soon. I had a blast shopping on this site for things for our trip!

First, I shopped for some must have accessories. I picked out a cute beach bag and some really classy sunglasses by Seafolly. They also have hats and much more!

Next, check out the fun Leilani Calypso Crochet Twist Bandini swimsuit I received...

I absolutely love the style and the blue color! This swimsuit has full coverage on me, I really like that. It also has a built in bra that gives me excellent support. That is really important to me. 

Here is what it looks like from the back...
The design is really cool and I like the open back. I was happy that measuring myself and going by their online size chart was a positive experience. It is so hard for me to get a swimsuit that fits perfect like this one does. I give these great products a thumbs up. I can't wait to wear this on our trip! It is very flattering on and I love it!

Our Review:

We love fairy tales so we were excited to get Into The Woods on Blu-ray. This movie has a few different fairy tales with a little twist and they all intertwine together. Anna Kendrick does a good job playing Cinderella. I always feel bad for Cinderella when you see how bad she is treated by her Stepmother and Stepsisters. They are so mean to her. Red Riding Hood is in this movie too. I loved Johnny Depp playing the bad wolf. That was great! Meryl Streep is an excellent witch. I liked when she kept appearing in trees in the woods, talking to the baker. We have always liked musicals and Into The Woods is a good one. I'm very impressed at how well the actors can sing. Everyone in the family will enjoy this movie.

There are some really good special features too. I liked "The cast as good as gold". The actors tell you about their role in the movie and how they felt about singing in front of their fellow actors. There is also Deeper Into The Woods, music, lyrics and much more.

RUSSELL MADNESS Blu-ray Review....

The Talking Dog-Loving Team that has Dressed-Up Pets for Generations
Including Air Bud and Air Buddies … Debuts an Exciting All-New Family Film!

RUSSELL MADNESS is produced by Air Bud Entertainment, the creative force behind the #1 live-action, direct-to-video movies in the family category. The exciting, action-packed adventure introduces ‘Russell,’ a talking (and costume-wearing) Jack Russell Terrier who accidentally becomes a professional wrestling superstar, on the way to discovering the true power…of family.

The film stars John Ratzenberger (‘Toy Story,’ ‘Cars,’ TV’s Cheers), Fred Willard (TV’s Modern Family) David Milchard (TV’s Convos with my 2-Year Old), Mason Vale Cotton (TV’s Mad Men), McKenna Grace (TV’s Crash and Burn) and John Hennigan (former WWE star) along with the voices of talking animal stars including Will Sasso (TV’s ‘MadTV’ and ‘The Three Stooges’) and Sean Giambrone (TV’s The Goldbergs). RUSSELL MADNESS is directed by ‘Air Bud’ and ‘Buddies’ veterans Robert Vince, written and produced by Robert Vince and Anna McRoberts.


RUSSELL MADNESS tells the story of Russell, an undersized but big-hearted terrier who dreams of having a family of his own. After running away from his current pet store residence, Russell gets taken in by The Ferraros, a family desperate to revive their grandfather’s pro wrestling arena. That’s when they discover their new pet pooch has incredible wrestling skills. With help from his coach, Hunk, a savvy and hilarious monkey, Russell rockets to the top of the pro wrestling world and becomes a famous sports superstar. But when a dishonest promoter double-crosses the Ferraros, Russell will face his biggest challenge and discover that the strongest tag team is family. RUSSELL MADNESS is rated ‘PG’ by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

Our Review:

We are all dog lovers in our house! We enjoy watching the Air Bud movies. Russell Madness is a good family movie from the creators of Air Bud. This movie has a jack russell that becomes a world famous wrestler. Russell is in a pet store waiting to be adopted. Every time a kid picks him up and wants to take him home, he pees on them LOL. It's so funny to see the look on their face when that happens. When he finds out he is going to the pound because nobody wants him, he runs away and ends up meeting the Ferraros. They take him in as part of the family and then his wrestling career begins.

I love the monkey named Hunk. He is so cute and decides to be Russell's trainer. I loved when the little girl in the family first meets Hunk, she talks him into having a tea party with her. He is in a little dress with her around the table pretending to drink tea. It was sad to see a wrestler cheat to beat Russell in a match. He pulled a dog whistle out and started blowing it so Russell was helpless. You'll have to watch the movie to see how Russell out smarts him in the final match to win the championship when he pulls out the dog whistle again. It's brilliant! There are so many funny parts in this movie. I highly recommend it!

There are some fun special features too. We liked watching "raising the woof, training Russell". There is also a gag real that is pretty funny and a five little monkeys sing-along.

Our Review: 

I was so happy when they made another Dumb and Dumber movie! I really loved the first one and this second one doesn't disappoint. There are so many funny parts in this movie. If you like to laugh out loud when watching movies, then you will love Dumb and Dumber to. I loved it when they found their dog car that they had in the first movie. They are so happy! Then right after they start driving it, they go off a jump and the car falls apart. It was hilarious when they set off to find Harry's daughter from her address on an envelope. After driving for a while they end up back at the same house they left from. They did this because they were looking at the return address and not the mailing address. Another part I loved, is when they are driving a hearse next to a school bus. All of the kids are looking at the hearse then Loyd opens the curtain. His face is white and red with stuff all over it that looked like blood. The kids all scream, but then it shows him eating a powdered sugar donut with raspberry filling and that's what's all over his face. The kids all laugh and think he's really funny.

There are some pretty fun special features too. The alternate opening was pretty good. I also liked "what's so smart about dumb and dumber to" there are plenty more features too, like deleted/extended scenes, gag reel and "that's awesome!" the story of dumb and dumber to.

Our review:

This is a good movie so we were super excited to get it on Blu-ray! We felt bad for Alexander when everything goes wrong that could possibly go wrong. He makes a wish on his birthday that all of his family would know what it's like to have a bad day. Then his brother wakes up with a huge pimple on his forehead and it's prom night. His sister wakes up with a cold and she is suppose to sing in a Peter Pan play that day. The mom wakes up late and tries to leave for work but her car battery is dead. The whole house is chaotic. There are so many funny parts in this movie you will love it! I loved the part when Dick Van Dyke was doing a book reading. There was a misprint in the book and he kept saying the wrong word over and over. It was so funny. It was cool to see how everything worked out and Alexander's birthday party was a huge success and the whole family had fun together. With all of the bad things that kept happening to them, it made them even closer as a family.

There are some fun bonus features too. I liked Real Life. This talks about the original book and has the real Alexander. He tells us how things were for him as a kid and what happened when his mom wrote this book about him. Also there are bloopers and the Australian Outback yard party that shows you all the animals in the film. And plenty more bonus features.

My Review:

Oh my heck, Tom and Jerry are so cute together! This is a classic cartoon that never gets old. I loved them as a kid and I still love to watch them. It's so funny watching Tom always trying to catch Jerry. But Jerry out smarts Tom every time. Then when you add Spike the dog into the mix you can't help but laugh out loud. I can't wait until my granddaughter is old enough to watch these with us. I know she is going to love them!

This DVD has over 4 hours of Tom and Jerry cartoons on 2 discs. My hubby and I couldn't stop watching them. We had plenty of laughs, as it brought back old memories of watching these two chase after each other. I really liked the episode that Tom and Jerry decided to call a truce for the holidays. As they were helping Santa Claus put presents under the tree, Jerry pulled a present out of the bag that said Jerry on it. When he checked the list, it had Tom on the naughty list. There were no presents for Tom. Jerry hurried and switched the tag on his present to say Tom on it. Then when Tom noticed there were no more presents in the bag and Jerry wouldn't get one, he hurried and switched the tag to say Jerry on it so Jerry wouldn't feel left out. It was so cute. Then after Santa saw this, he put Tom back on the nice list and gave him a present too.

Everyone in the family will love these cartoons no matter how old they are. We are happy to add this to our DVD collection!
