Wordless Wednesday: Although some days I may feel like rubbish…in the end, I’m OK

Nory Rahat Locum-Turkish Delight Review & Giveaway! 5 Winners

I introduced many of you to the wonderful world of Nory Locum last year in Aug. 2010, with my review of their delightfully flavorful confections, that we so fondly know as,  Turkish Delight!

My fellow foodies fell in love with the idea of this beautiful treat from far off lands, as did I. And even more so to find out that it’s made right here in the US, by hand, in California!

Last time I was so graciously sent a few flavors of  Turkish Delight to sample and savor for my review, and they were wonderful indeed, but I felt I was missing out on not trying the licorice flavor, because it has always been one of my favoritest flavors ever!!

When I was a little girl it was mine and my dad’s favorite flavor of everything! From candies to ice cream, cough drops to finding a feathery licorice flavored plant to chew on while hiking, we called it licorice plant! (no idea what it really was, fennel? anise?)

So this time when I was asked if I would like to review Nory’s licorice flavored Turkish Delight, you know that I did mini jumps of joys as I said “YES PLEASE!”

For those of you who did not read my first review and have never tried Locum/Turkish Delight, let me tell you a bit about it…

Rahat Locum, which means “contentment of the throat”, is a candy of royalty that is centuries old! Nory Rahat Locum is made fresh just for you!  Their Locum  “is made with locally grown, high quality ingredients and, is cooked, cut and packed by hand!”  They are a very nice chewy consistency, with the perfect amount of flavor that leaves you wanting more! 

I was more than pleased with the licorice flavor of these Turkish Delights, they are not at all over powering. I know that any licorice lover (and even those who think they are not) would be totally missing out if they did not try these wonderful confections for themselves.

 For the full story on Nory Rahat Locum, check out this article featured in the Los Angeles Times Food section!: http://tinyurl.com/2bxxjal

You can order Nory Locum via their website.

Just as I was the first time I tasted Nory Locum, I am head over heal about this wonderful, magical delight. So once again, I give Nory Locum at total thumbs up!

Thank you Nory, for bringing back fond childhood memories in the form of your licorice Turkish Delight!

~Aloha Friday~ That one song that makes you smile from ear to ear..

Happy Aloha Friday My Friends!

The other day, while I was driving to the store, one of my favorite songs came on the radio.. Memories of High School came swooshing though my head and an instant smile was plastered on my face, from ear to ear.

I realized that every time I hear this song I am instantly taken back to a totally care-freee time in my life, on of the happiest times ever, High School.

My all time Happy Song? Dexy’s Midnight Runners – “Come on Eileen”

My question for you today- What is that one song, that makes you smile from ear to ear?

~Aloha Friday~ What’s your worst pet peeve?

It is Friday, and usually you would here me say “Thank God it’s Friday!!” but I had this past week off from work, so THIS Friday is not as sweet as the rest because it marks the end of my mini vacation… so what does this have to do with my Aloha Friday Question this week? Well…it got me thinking about pet peeves, Now don’t get me wrong, I am very thankful to have the job that I have, I try my hardest to look at the glass half full rather than looking at it and thinking “Who the heck drank half my drink?”  But, I do get annoyed with things from time to time…

My pet peeves may not be your pet peeves, but they are very valid just the same. It is funny to me to find out what irritates others, we are all so different, as people, I love to see what makes others tick and react…

My Top 3 pet peeves are:

Barking Dogs, I’m not talking once or twice, but dogs who bark for hours! grrrr..

The sound of bouncing playground balls (which is ironic since I work at a school) I cannot stand the sound, it makes my neck all stiff! 😛

The last…The sound of eating or licking noises, ICK! Have you ever seen that commercial with the dog licking the peanut butter off of a spoon? AHHH! makes me want to run screaming down the street!

ok…now that you get a lil’ taste of what bugs me, and how kinda crazy I can be, it’s your turn to chime in!

What are your worst pet peeves?

Have fun, let it out, remember confession is good for the mind and soul! 😉

Happy Aloha Friday luvies!

Volcom “Love Your Boobs Dude!”~Breast Cancer Awareness~ Bangles 5 winner Giveaway!

 As many of you know, I love to bring you giveaways from companies that I love and trust. One of my fave companies is Volcom! Volcom has awesome products, the hottest clothes out there, and even my fave handbag is a Volcom bag!

I found these bangles a few months back on one of my visits to the Volcom warehouse.

I really liked that they support a great cause,  breast cancer awareness, and that  they aren’t your typical BCA braceletts…but then again, Volcom doesn’t DO typical 😉

These bangles are a bit edgier, and you gotta love the slogans!

“Breast are the new black” and “Love your boobs dude!” (2 of my faves)

 These fun, metal bangles measure approx. 2 1/2 inches across and approx. 8 inches around. They come in several colors; silver, gold, white, yellow, red, pink, and orange. There are 10 bangles in all, 5 that sport a BCA message and 5 that say Volcom Stone. (Each winner will receive 1 BCA bangle and 1 VS bangle.)

What an awesome way to show your support of a great cause and a wonderful company!

For this giveaway we will have 5 winners, 2 bangles each!

PetsPride Pet ID Smart Tag-Pet Protection and Recovery System Giveaway-6 winners!

I found these great lil’ tags while on one of my “browsing” trips and I thought they were pretty cool!  Many of us have non-human “best friends” and knowing how important they are to us made these tags even more awesome in my opinion.

PetsPride ID Tags are very cool because each comes with its own set of numbers, like a personal ID for your pet, that you register online. If your pet wonders off, or gets lost, all someone needs to do is call the number on the back and the data base will pull your information to be able to contact you as to where you can find your beloved fur baby! 

When my kitty was little she wondered off and after days I began to think all hope was lost…thankfully some neighborhood girls had seen a sign I had posted and they knew that she had been living in the park. I was sooo very happy when they brought her home to me.  How much easier would it have been if she would have had one of these tags!

Here are some of the really cool features of these tags:

24/7 Toll-Free Emergency Support

One-Click Instant Lost Pet Broadcast Alert

24/7 secure Online Access to Pet & Owner Profile

Your first year of service is included

Shelter, Rescues, Vets contacted when pet is lost (“Amber Alert for pets”)

Comes in 3 colors black, pink, and baby blue (cat or dog)

Here is the website if you would like to find out more: PET ID TAGS

So…for todays giveaway, I have 3 (small) dog ID tags and 3 cat ID tags for a total of 6 winners! (1 in each color)

Mandatory Entry: (you must do this first, for the xtras to count)

Please tell me about your furry friend! A cute story, funny habbits, anything about your Fur baby! (must be more than a sentence or 2) Be sure to leave an email or Twitter ID so I can contact you if you win!

~Aloha Friday~ “What Lights Your Creative Fire?”

Happy Aloha Friday My Friends!

I took a lil’ break from blogging, got really busy during the holidays and it hasn’t seemed to slow down at all. Had some highs and some lows the last couple of months, but it’s like they say, “without the highs and the lows, which way would we go?!”  For myself, I find this to be very true. I am learning with age that you have got to roll with the punches, take each day as it comes, and learn to be so very thankful for all the glorious blessing in our lives.  I have wanted to get back into my blog, return to doing reviews and giveaways, change it up a bit.  But I just have not been able to get motivated..at all! I have shoots to edit, a website to update, and a blog to express myself on..yet….nothing to light my fire, I need a serious jump start!

So my question for you today is..”What gets your creative fire lit, how do you get motivated, How do I get my Mojo back?! (advice?)

Have a gorgeous weekend luvies!

Wordless Wednesday… something this sweet, speaks for itself ;)
