Disco over to the Hilton Promenade!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

No matter your feelings about disco music, I don't know if I've ever met anyone who didn't like the Village People. It's hard to feel anything but happy if you hear the opening chords to "Y-M-C-A" or "In the Navy." If you hear that, you know that fun is just around the corner!

 

And you can still have a fun time! The Village People along with Maxine Nightingale & Janice-Marie are coming to Branson, Missouri on May 13 and you can enjoy them in style thanks to the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel

 

If you're looking to set up a fun get-away, the Hilton Promenade is ready to help you out. They are offering a wonderful package that includes two tickets to the 70's Super Show featuring The Village People, Maxine Nightingale & Janice-Marie plus a one night stay at the Hilton Promenade starting at $219.00! 

 

Aside from the concert, the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing has so many fantastic amenities! After the concert, you can relax at the indoor pool and whirlpool. You can go online and update your Facebook page with all of your pictures from the concert thanks to the wireless high speed internet access in each room. Or you can just crash on the pillow-topped mattress with down comforter! 

 

Of course, if you want to extend your trip, Branson offers lots of other things to do. You can go shopping at the Tanger Outlet Mall, visit the scenic Table Rock Lake, play a round at the Payne Stewart Golf Club, or enjoy the fun attractions at Silver Dollar City. All of these are located under 10 miles from the Hilton Promenade. 

 

So contact Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing and book your package! You know it's fun to stay at the Hilton Hotel!

 

What's your favorite song by the Village People? Let me know in the comments!

Review: Liberator Wedge Ramp Combo from EdenFantasys.com

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store

Hubby and I have been wanting the Liberator Wedge Ramp combo for years now. We'd talked about it, but they're a bit spendy and we were hesitant to spend that much money on fancy pillows.

I finally ordered a set from EdenFantasys a few weeks ago and we tested them out when he got back from Poland. Oh my.

Every positive review of the Liberator products that I've read is completely right. I don't think anything has improved our sex life as much as these pillows.

They are made from a high grade furniture foam that is amazing at keeping its shape and supporting a couple (even a large couple like my husband and me) during sex. The material covering the shapes is a microfiber, water resistant material (ours is a pretty purple, but you can also get it in black and blue). One of the things that I love about this combo is that it doesn't move. Not on the bed and not on each other. We use the pieces separately and together and they stay put. The covers remove for easy washing.

They are a bit large so storage can be a bit problematic. And as I said, they are a bit expensive. But really, the negatives are barely worth mentioning compared to the positives.

They allow for deeper penetration, more comfort in some positions and plain old access to some positions that we had thought were not possible. And, if you hurry, you can get these and other Liberator shapes at a 15% discount at EdenFantasys right now! Be sure to check this out right away. I promise, you won't be disappointed!

Disclosure: EdenFantasys.com has sponsored this post, but the opinions are 100% my own. You can read my full disclosure here.

Review & Giveaway: Shapelets - Make Your Own Silly Bands

I'm pretty sure the silly band craze will never die. There is always some new silly band coming out! My kids are still fairly enthralled with them, and I find them in couch cushions and under beds and stacked up on counters all the time. It's an epidemic, I tell you!

Of course, silly bands come in all kinds of shapes, but the problem is that kids don't get to use their imaginations much when you buy these products for them. It's fun to share and trade them, but there's not much in the way of creativity.

I had the opportunity to review Shapelets and let me tell you, if you're going to have silly bands in your house, this is the way to do it! With this kit, your kids are able to design their own stretchy bands into any design they want.

The kit that I received came with the pegboard, 32 pegs, and 24 rubber bands in different colors and sizes. Basically you just put the pegs into the board, wrap your band around it and then bake it for five minutes at 225 degrees. You don't even need a baking sheet, as the pegboard is able to withstand those lower temperatures.

We did have several of the bands break when we made them because we stretched them too tight over the pegs, so some experimentation is needed to determine the best size rubber band for your creation, but when we got that right, it worked like a charm. We were able to make simple shapes like stars and some more complex shapes like animals and creatures that my son created. It was really fun to see the kids experiment with different arrangements of the pegs. You can check out a gallery of kid designed silly bands here.

I would absolutely recommend this. If you've got a birthday party planned, check out the party pack, where you can order 10 kits for only $49.99. When you consider a packet of silly bands can run $4, that's a killer deal. Individual packets are just $9.99, so if you're looking for a great, inexpensive project, this is a fantastic way to go.

Buy it: You can buy your own Shapelets packet for only $9.99!

Win it: One lucky reader will win a Shapelets packet of their very own! This contest is open to residents of the US 18 and older.

  • What shape would you use this kit to design?

Review & Giveaway: Fogless Shower Mirror

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
I love a nice shower. Nothing feels better to wake me up or help me relax than stepping into the shower and letting the water pound down on me.

But in our house, time and space are at a premium, so most showers are pretty quick. And if there's a chance to multi-task by doing face washing or shaving or some other thing beauty regimen in the shower, all the better.

So we were excited to receive the Fogless Shower Mirror from ToiletTree Products. This is a really handy little device for the family on the go!

This product is really nice because instead of suction cups that tend to work for a while and then give out, it has a special silicone adhesive that attaches the base to your shower wall. This allows this fogless mirror (and it really is fogless! I'm amazed at how well it works!) to stay secure. In case you were concerned about that because of height differences, know that the base is adjustable, so you're able to tilt the mirror up and down for people of different heights in the shower. If you had an extreme height difference, this might be a problem, for for most, it should work really well. It measures 6.5 in x 8.5 in x 1.5 in and weighs less than 1 pound.

The shatter-proof mirror remains fogless because it has this ingenious reservoir that keeps the mirror at the same temperature as your shower. You can easily remove the mirror from the base so you can fill it with hot water and then off you go! No special coatings or anything like that, just water!

The base has a nice little shelf on it for the squeegee and a razor or sponges. It's all very self-contained and is ultra-convenient.

Buy it: You can purchase your own fogless shower mirror at ToiletTree Products for $29.95!

Win it: One lucky reader will win a fogless shower mirror courtesy of ToiletTree Products and Tomoson.com! This contest is open to residents of the US 18 and older.

  • Stop by the website and tell me what you would use this for in your bathroom.

Blogmania Sponsor: Clever Hands

Just two short days away from Blogmania '11: April edition! And I want to let you know about another sponsor.

Clever Hands is a wonderful Etsy shop that sells bandoliers for your journal. While I know that the smart phone has replaced pen and paper, there are still a lot of us that like to carry a real live notebook for jotting down ideas for blogs or during meetings and it's easy to lose track of your pen and pencil. Emily has designed these really lovely and practical bandoliers that wrap around your notebook at all times.

She also offers hand-bound notebooks. These are sold in sets of three. They measure 4.25"x5.25" and contain 24 pages, with 48 sides. They are small enough to stick in your pocket and not take up a lot of space.

I love Emily's shop and I am thrilled to be able to offer you a chance to win a $16.95 credit (and free shipping!) to Clever Hands so you can purchase your own journal bandolier or hand-bound notebooks. Also, be sure to check out Emily's blog here. She's got some DIY ideas and just general crafting tips. Definitely worth adding to your reader!

I'll see you soon for the giveaway!
