Popcornflix Review

I recently had the opportunity to review Popcornflix .  I must say it is nice to be able to have a site to view movies for free. Other sites you usually have to pay something to watch a movie but Popcornflix is absolutely free.

One of my first thoughts was how is this site free? So I emailed them and got this response...

Popcornflix owns the rights to all the movies on their site – so it’s free and legal. They just get revenue from ads.

I think it is great that Popcornflix made it so movies are free for everyone. (Right now they only reach the US but they are working on reaching further.) You will see a lot of ads in the movies but you must remember Popcornflix did this for you so they could offer these movies free for you.

And a little more about Popcornflix:

We love movies! Popcornflix was created for people like us who want to watch "Great Movies. Free." Popcornflix has full-length movies that will make you laugh, make you cry, scare the heck out of you, or inspire you to hug the person you love. We have compelling documentaries, foreign films, unique original web series, and a place that showcases the brightest film makers of tomorrow. We built Popcornflix to be the most user friendly movie destination on the web. No movie is more than two clicks away and they are all FREE.
We at Popcornflix want to thank our "parent" Screen Media Ventures, LLC for giving us a home and an endless flow of great films.
Screen Media Ventures, LLC, founded in 1999, is the largestindependent distributor of motion pictures to the world widetelevision market. The company is one of the leading motion picturedistributors of theatrical, home video, digital and television bothin the U.S. and internationally. With over 1500 movies, Screen Mediahas one of the largest independently owned film libraries in themotion picture industry.

Popcornflix is easy to use. You can search by genre, new arrivals, or most popular. All you have to do is click and browse through the movies. Then once you picked a movie hit play. Also something I just figured out while just clicking around is that when you have a R rated movie come up you must type in your birth date to watch it. I don't watch R movies but I like the idea of having to put in your birth date to watch it.

I have watched two movies on Popcornflix so far and I must say I loved them. I was in the mood for comedy so I watched one called Bridal Fever that stars Delta Burke. I was laughing pretty hard while watching this movie. It was great. The other movie I watched was called a Wedding for Bella. This movie was more of a drama and stars Scott Baio. Warning there is some language and you will shed tears. It was a wonderful movie.

So if you are looking for a place to watch movies for free check out Popcornflix.

Fresh Produce Clothing

I was recently contacted by Fresh Produce Clothing and I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing something from their clothing line.  After I went to the website I couldn't refuse!  They have cute clothes!

My favorite part about Fresh Produce Clothing is that they are modest. Most clothes today you see every part of a woman's body and nothing is left up to the imagination.  Modest clothing is very hard to find today.  They also have clothes for little girls.

So let's find out a little how Fresh Produce got it's start...

Today, Fresh Produce designs, manufactures and markets a leading women’s and children’s lifestyle brand of clothing. In women’s apparel, the Fresh Produce brand is known for its original prints, vibrant color and stylish, comfortable clothing, all designed and created by CEO, Mary Ellen Vernon.   For nearly three decades, Fresh Produce has delighted women with beautiful clothing that is primarily made in the USA. 
The heart of the Fresh Produce is rooted in the positive impact of color. We love color and want our customers to light up the room in our clothes. From casual tops and feminine dresses to decorative scarves and stylish pants, Fresh Produce is dedicated to creating feel-good clothes women want to wear every day.  The coastal-inspired colors and broad assortment of easy-to-wear pieces are flattering and comfortable on all shapes and sizes and are available in Extra Fresh plus sizes as well as children’s styles. The comfortable fabrics, fit and style reflect carefree ease.
Fresh Produce clothes are available at 25 company-owned retail boutiques, online and at more than 500 independent retailers throughout the continental US, Canada, Hawaii and the Caribbean, including 13 ‘Handpicked’ dealer locations. The Handpicked dealers utilize the Fresh Produce retail trade dress and stock a broad assortment of Fresh Produce’s most current styles.

So after spending about a half an hour looking at their clothes (ok so it may have been longer lol) I decided on what I wanted to review...

This is the Effortless Dress in Augustine (shown below is plus size)
 I decided to get the Effortless Dress in Augustine in a pink color called Tropical Punch.  I usually don't wear pink but I was looking to expand my colors in my closet.  I really love this dress.  I love the look and feel and the way it fits.

Me of course wearing the dress :)

This dress can be found here.  It cost $69 and the plus size costs $74.  Right now Fresh Produce is having a Mother's Day sale where you buy one dress get a second for 50% off.  This is on all dresses.  Enter the Coupon Code: LOVEMOM

Also be sure to check out their Resort Wear, Caribbean Clothing and their Simple Dresses.

So if you are looking for some new clothes that are modest, cute and comfortable to wear then check out Fresh Produce Clothing.  I am sure you will love these clothes as much as I do.

*Note this is my honest opinion of the product above.  I was not paid for my review.

Reuseit BlueAvocado Chil Tote Bag

I had the opportunity to work with the company Reuseit it again and I am very pleased with the tote bag that I received to review.

Being a mom of four who is on the go for soccer, it is important to me to find a bag that can carry food for the long days at soccer.  This is a great bag for just that. 

I decided to pack our kids a lunch this Saturday for their games because my son had a game that was further away than normal.  I was afraid we may not have time to get back to our house for lunch.  I packed their lunch in the Reusit BlueAvocado Big Chil Large Insulated Reusable Shopping Bag. Turns out we did have some extra time so we were able to come back to our house where I filled up water bottles and a milk bottle for our youngest.

I was afraid that it would go bad because the baby had fallen asleep.  The bag is insulated so it kept the bottle cool. I really love how much room is in this bag because it great for packing a lunch for my family of 6.  Also I know it will be great for when we go to the park and want to have picnics.

Here is a little more info on the bag...
  • Replaces plastic shopping bags and paper lunch bags
  • Insulated – pvc-free liner keeps contents hot/cold for up to 3 hours
  • Zip-top closure
  • Holds 3 gallons
  • Made from recycled materials
  • 1% of sales donated to global women's micro-entrepreneurship
  • The size of the bag is 12.5"H x 21"W x 9”D 
The bag comes in two different colors.  The navy blue you can see in my above picture and also a kiwi color.  The tote bag costs $22.95.  Don't forget to check out Reuseit's other tote bags.

Tone Up Tuesday

Tone Up Tuesday.  What are you doing to tone up?

Here are a few ideas....

I think this is a good idea.  You can even make your own Bingo card with the exercises you enjoy most.  Maybe when you get a Bingo from doing the exercises you can award yourself with a treat.  A healthy treat :)
