Movie Night & Febreze Our #NoseBlind Test #Giveaway

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Did you know that most of us become “Noseblind” to odors in our own home? Basically, we’re so used to smelling them that our brain decides that they are no longer important, and eventually stops recognizing them all together. Kind of like living with a hound, like we do. She’s part of our family, and we love her. Even though I use a lot of products to try and keep our home smelling fresh – I’m sure our guests pick up on her odor much more than we do.

Our #NoseBlind test
Have you seen the humorous Febreze commercials featuring their NoseBlind challenges? I’ve seen a couple of them, and in all honesty have been pretty skeptical. This week I had the opportunity to take the test myself along with a couple of friends during a movie night.

A fun chick-flick (Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club), three bowls of smelly popcorn (Extra Butter, Movie theater butter, and White Cheddar) and of course two of my friends that are not noseblind to our home. We were ready to put the Febreze Meadows & Rain product line to the test!

I’m happy to share that the Febreze products came out on top! Passing the test! They not only rid of Roxy’s hound odor, which is a job in it’s self, but tackled new as they happened odor instantly, such as our popcorn. Not masking the odors, but eliminating, so there was no sign of them throughout the night. I’m really impressed! As were my friends.

Take your own Noseblind test. Then share your results with Febeze on Twitter and Facebook. Be sure to use the #NoseBlind hashtag!

Kernel Season’s Seasoning Review & Giveaway #Kernelseasons #Shakeupyourflavor

It’s no secret that my family watches a lot of movies. It’s also no secret that movies often require snacks. Our family’s favorite is popcorn. Movies and popcorn pretty much come as a pair around here. Kind of like peanut butter and jelly. I just can’t imagine one without the other. Being a self proclaimed expert in both movies and snacks, I’m thrilled to have recently receive a variety of Kernel Season’s seasoning shakers to review here on my blog. I love the idea of kicking up our popcorn a notch by shaking on some flavor.

Kernelseasoning_group1.jpg

It all started back in 1999, when college student Brian Taylor was looking for a way to add some pop to his favorite snack, popcorn. In 2000, Brian teamed up with experienced flavor experts to perfect the recipes and began developing a seasoning line. In 2005, Kernel Season’s Popcorn Seasoning started shaking up the flavor in grocery stores, movie theaters and millions of homes around the globe. Kernel Season’s is now the leader in the popcorn-seasoning category.

Kernel-Seasons-logo

Popcorn lovers be prepared – Kernel Season’s seasoning is available in more than a dozen flavors, and with an 18 month shelf life, you have time to experience them all. This is one product my family has been more than happy to help me review. While our teenage daughter and I might not agree on the amount of seasoning to add to our popcorn (she adds way too much), we can agree that Kernel Season’s Caramel seasoning is the bomb! Though the geek in me does love some Bacon Cheddar – come on’ it’s bacon. On my popcorn – bacon! My husband is a fan of the Garlic Parmesan, and my niece chose the Ranch seasoning as her favorite. Also high on the list is the White Cheddar seasoning. In-fact it might just be our first empty shaker.

It’s been so much fun sharing Kernel Season’s Seasoning and asking for opinions. The only flavor photoed above that has not been loved is the Kettle Corn. I’m not sure what happened there, when all the rest are so darn good.

More than just on top of popcorn, Kernel Season’s Seasoning shakes up the flavor of so many other foods. So far I’ve tried Kernel Season’s Ranch seasoning on corn on the cob, Butter + Bacon Cheddar on baked potatoes and White Cheddar on fresh green beans. All were delicious. From pork chops to milk shakes you can find all kinds of fun recipes to try on the Kernel Season’s Recipe page. Also, don’t forget to check each shaker cap for a fun little flavor tip.

Free advance screening of Sex Tape, staring Cameron Diaz & Jason Segel #Detroit

Looking for your next “girl’s night out” movie? Or a movie to just let lose and laugh out-loud at? I have your answer and free passes to an advance screening here in the Detroit area.

sextape2

Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but ten years and two kids have cooled the passion. To get it back, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in THE JOY OF SEX in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea, until they discover that their most private video has gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure – tracking down leads, roping in friends, duping Annie’s boss – all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity, and, most importantly, their marriage.
