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!

theotherwomantitle09

To prepare you for the release of The Other Woman, here is a list of the top ten boyfriends that Hollywood films have to offer.

1. Noah Calhoun- The Notebook

“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.”

2. Jack Dawson- The Titanic

“Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me… it brought me to you. And I’m thankful for that, Rose. I’m thankful.”

3. Harry Burns- When Harry Met Sally

“I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

4. Leo Collins- The Vow

“I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other.”

5. Lloyd Dobler- Say Anything

“What I really want to do with my life — what I want to do for a living — is I want to be with your daughter. I’m good at it.”

I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

10. Phil – The Other Woman

It’s time to get even! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment takes girl power to a whole new level with THE OTHER WOMAN, debuting on Blu-ray & DVD July 29. With Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann as the leading ladies and newcomers Kate Upton and Nicki Minaj bringing the jokes left and right, ladies all over better be ready for the perfect movie to end their summer in style! Cameron Diaz leads a knockout cast in this irreverent comedy about love, lust and the laws of karma. New York attorney Carly Whitten (Diaz) is nobody’s fool. So when she accidentally discovers that her too-good-to-be-true boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married, she’s less than thrilled. Not only that, she and Mark’s wife Kate (Leslie Mann), learn about yet another mistress (Kate Upton)! Great boyfriends are hard to find, even in the movies.

Trailer Park Tuesday, Benicio del Toro as Pablo Escobar in Paradise Lost

paradise-lost-movie_poster

Young surfer Nick (Hutcherson) thinks all his dreams have come true when he goes to visit his brother in Colombia. Against an idyllic backdrop of blue lagoons and white beaches he falls madly in love with a beautiful Colombian girl called Maria (Traisac). It all seems perfect until he meets her uncle, one Pablo Escobar (del Toro).

I’ve been waiting to see footage of this film for what feels like forever! If you know me offline, or have been reading my blog for any real amount of time, then you know Benicio del Toro is my very favorite actor, and has been for over a decade. One might say I’m a tad-bit obsessed. I guess I can live with that. Anyway this teaser looks amazing. The shot where Benicio is giving the look – you “the look” it gives me chills already. I am so looking forward to seeing this movie on the big screen!

How about you? Do you think you’ll be seeing Paradise Lost?
