SONIC Splash™ Hand-Crafted Sodas and Giveaway

by Pennie on November 23, 2014

Sonic

SONIC has just announced the launch of its all new line of SONIC Splash™ Hand-Crafted Sodas! These new guilt-free sodas are made with a sparkling crystal clear, filtered water – a bubbly base of infused layers of real fruit or unique fruit flavors, collaborating to create a refreshing and unique low-calorie beverage. With flavors like Peach, Raspberry and Blackberry-Pineapple, there is something for everyone. More adventurous palates can select from flavors like Sunshine Berry™, a delicious mix of real strawberries, peach and fresh lemon.

Sonic Raspberry Splash

SONIC Splash™ Hand-Crafted Sodas are a new permanent addition to SONIC’s drink lineup that already boasts more than 1 million drink combinations. Don’t forget to enjoy SONIC Splash for half price during SONIC’s daily happy hour or during Morning Drink Stop when large soft drinks and Slushes are only $.99 before 10 a.m.

Nicole’s take:   I love getting a drink at SONIC.  They have that great crushed ice and a styrofoam cup that keeps my drink cold for HOURS.  Love that.  And they have great flavors.  I am a pretty diehard diet cherry limeade girl but was excited to try the Hand-Crafted Sodas.  I tried the Raspberry and the Blackberry-Pineapple varieties and LOVED them! They are sparkly and the flavors are really light.  They make a great addition to SONIC’s already great drink menu!

Nicole’s take:  We are just loving our FabKids outfits! The items each month are just adorable as the ones from last month and such a large variety between dresses, leggings, pants, etc.  I love how the items coordinate and we can mix and match sometimes from month to month! This month I chose the teal gem outfit for my niece and it is just too cute.  She loves the dresses with leggings combos and has been wearing them so much now that the weather is cooler down here.  My sister-in-law loves the way they wash!

Nicole’s take: I love holiday baking! Last year I was in the hospital over the holidays trying to keep the babies in longer and this year well I have 3 ten month olds! So I am not sure how much baking I will be doing but I did make these 2 recipes! They were super easy and the finished products definitely look like they were much harder to make than they actually were!

The festive mini cookie cups are my favorite – they taste delicious and everyone from kids to adults loves them!

13 New Nail Shades from Nuance Salma Hayek!

by Pennie on November 20, 2014

CVS logo

From Nuance Salma Hayek, is an incredible array of 13 new premium nail colors.   The advantage of these nail laquers is you get salon quality at an inexpensive price!  And Nuance is a cruelty free product so that is an added bonus.

NuanceNailGroup

Lucky Nicole received this wonderful beautiful bundle of Salma Hayek Nuance nail colors that are perfect for the holidays and beyond from CVS!

2014-10-23 14.59.39

Nicole’s take:  I love the rich new colors of the Nuance Salma Hayek line.  I have used their nail polishes before and was really happy with the colors and how easy they went on and how long they stayed on! It’s so much fun to mix up the colors on your hands and feet – a deep blue on your feet and a coral on your hands for example! These nail polishes give you so many options!!
