Kidoodle.TV Review

My son loves Youtube but he can't watch everything that's on Youtube because everything on there is not age appropriate. That's why I love Kidoole.TV. It's a great website for children and it's completely safe. Once on the website setup is easy. You register your info, then you create a profile for each child you have. You can customize based on age for up to 5 children. The website is well put together and has a lot of bright colors that your child would love. It's easy to navigate the website and all the videos are a perfect fit for their particular age group. Right now Kidoole.TV is in beta but it's worth checking out. My son loved it and I hope your child will love it too.

WWE Night of Champions Predictions

It's PPV time again. This year's Night of Champions is going to be very interesting because you really don't know who's going to win. Let's take a quick look at the matches for this PPV.

Tag Team Turmoil match: The Prime Time Players( Darren Young and Titus O'Neil) vs Tons of Funk(Brodus Clay and Tensai) vs The Usos( Jimmy and Jey) vs 3MB( Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre, or Jinder Mahal) vs The Real Americans( Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro with Zeb Colter). This is to be the number one contender against The Shield.
My choice: The Usos

WWE Championship: Randy Orton(c) vs Daniel Bryan
This match is basically Daniel vs the company. There are too many factors surrounding this match that it's impossible to go smoothly.
My choice: Randy Orton

World Heavyweight Championship: Alberto Del Rio(c) vs RVD (with Rodriguez)
I think the key player in this match will be Rodriguez. Something still feels off about how quickly he aligned himself with RVD.
My choice: Alberto Del Rio

Elimination Handicap match: C.M. Punk vs Curtis Axel (with Paul Heyman)
I'm going to be honest I feel like C.M. Punk will lose or rather the match won't end. Brock Lensar has been m.i.a. for awhile now. I'm just saying don't count him out of this match.
My choice: Curtis Axel

Divas Championship: A.J. Lee vs Naomi vs Natalya vs Brie Bella
As an A.J. fan I would love to see her hold on to the belt a little while longer. With that said this is going to be a hard match for the champ, especially since she doesn't have to get pinned to lose. That's what makes Fatal Four way championship matches tricky.
My choice: Natalya

WWE Tag Team Championship: The Shield( Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins) vs The #1 Tag Team Championship Contenders
Honestly no matter who wins #1 contenders, I feel Dean Ambrose will play a role in keeping the Tag belts with The Shield.
My choice: The Shield

The choices I'm picking are purely based on how I think things will play out. These choices are not who I'm hoping to win. My personal choices to win (not based on story line): The Usos, Daniel Bryan, Alberto Del Rio, C.M. Punk, A.J. Lee, and The Usos for the Tag Team Belts.

Quaker Oatmeal Squares Cereal Review

I love cold cereal, especially when I'm in a rush. Most cereals are full of sugar and are not that healthy. Quaker Oatmeal Squares Cereal is not like that. I had a chance to try this cereal and absolutely loved it. Yeah I might like it but what about children? Well I made a bowl for my 7 yr old son and he loved it so much he wanted another bowl of it. I trust the Quaker brand. They always have a way of making healthy taste surprisingly good. This cereal is packed with the good stuff. It's 96% of your daily whole grain needs. It's a great source of fiber and calcium. Here's the best part it's available in four flavors: Brown Sugar (the one I had), Cinnamon, Golden Maple, and Honey Nut. Pick up a box next time you're looking for a healthy cold cereal.

Quaker Crispy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Review

Who doesn't love cookies? I love cookies but I'm not a big fan of peanut butter. So when I received these cookies I was hesitant to try them. To my surprise they tasted great. The peanut butter flavor was just enough. The peanut butter is in chunks swirls. They taste a little bit like a sugar cookie. I hardly could taste any oatmeal but I think that's ok. Children would love these. Quaker Crispy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies come individually wrapped in packs of four per box. They contain 10g of whole grain oats (moms will be happy about that). I would put these in my son's backpack for snack time.

"What's Best For Business" Raw Revisited

Ahh Raw. Last night's Raw was very good leaving one important question: Where is this leading? Raw began with HHH in the ring (with The Shield as guard dogs, let's see how long that last). Then Randy Orton comes out explaining why he (and The Shield) beat up Daniel Bryan and sprayed "NO'' on his bare chest afterward. It was all because Bryan spray painted "YES" on his car that HHH gave him. Bryan comes out after HHH starts saying that he can bring back the Cruiser-weight belt for Bryan to fight for instead of the top belt. Bryan comes gets into a war of words with HHH and Orton. HHH books Bryan a match with Big Show for the main event. That opening ensured everyone was in for quite a night.
Match 1: Fandago vs The Miz= Winner Miz
Match 2: Ziggler vs Ryback= Winner Ryback (with help from The Shield before the match started)
Match 3: 3MB vs Prime Time Players= Prime Time Players
Match 4: Cody Rhodes vs Randy Orton (If Cody loses he's fired)= Winner Orton, Cody is fired by HHH
Match 5: Brie Bella vs Natalya vs Naomi (#1 contender for Diva's Championship)= No Winner (A.J. interferes and get beat of by some of the Total Divas cast members, This results in Stephanie McMahon making a fatal 4 way match at Night Of Champions: A.J(c) vs Brie vs Natalya vs Naomi)
Match 6: Damien Sandow vs RVD= Winner RVD
Match 7: Big Show vs Daniel Bryan= No winner, Big Show refuses to finish HHH forces Big Show to watch Bryan get beat up then tells Show to knock out Bryan. With some coaxing from Stephanie, Show knocks out Bryan and sobs. Orton comes out and turns Bryan over and puts his foot on Bryan as if he won the match at Night Of Champions.

Overall this was a good show. I love the fact that the Divas have a solid story line going on. The personal problems between punk and Heyman, and the main focus Bryan vs the McMahon-HHH w/Orton- power struggle. It's going to interesting to see what role will Big Show play at Night Of Champions.

BA STAR Lip Gloss Review

As a huge lip gloss fan I love trying new ones. I received this lip gloss called BA STAR in Super Sparkle. When I saw the amount of glitter that was in lip gloss tube, I thought would be too much. To my surprise the amount of glitter that you get when you use it on your lips is very subtle. The smell of this lip gloss is out of this world. It kind of smells like a fruity gum. One of my favorite things about this lip gloss is how long it lasted. I put it on at around 8am and it was still on my lips at 2pm. I love long lasting lip glosses and this is one of them. It also comes in another shade: Pearly Pink. The lip glosses come in a duo pack: Zebra Lip Gloss Duo ( BA STAR has many great products. I'm including a 50% off discount code for all my readers to use: BBDUST. Happy shopping to you all and be sure to pick up something nice at

Quaker Popped Cheddar Rice Snacks Review

What do you think of rice cakes? Bland? Boring? Well those are the rice snacks of the past. Nowadays Quaker has come up with rice snacks that even a child would love. Quaker Popped Cheddar Rice Snacks is the answer to any rice cake. It taste so good that even my son forgot it was a healthy snack. It's made with whole grain brown rice (yes I can see the smiles come across all of the moms out there faces) and a delicious cheddar flavor. My son ate most of it by himself. I did get to eat about 5 little bites. My son is a very picky eater so I was a little surprised by how fast he ate these rice snacks. Quaker Cheddar Rice snacks is only 140 calories and has 13g of whole grains. Now say you're not a fan of Cheddar, well have not fear Quaker has an assorted variety of flavors of their Popped Rice Snacks. Flavors such as: Apple Cinnamon, BBQ, Chocolate, Ranch, and much more. I will make sure to pick up more when I go grocery shopping and hope you give these rice snacks a try too.
