Influenster Vox box for Palmolive Fresh Infusions

I was chosen by Influenster to share a bottle of Palmolive Fresh Infusions dish soap with a friend, and to try the rest myself. I was also given coupons to hand out to all my friends who were interested in the product. When I signed up for the Kitchen product Influenster challenge, I had no idea what product that they were sending me. They like to keep it a surprise, which makes being an Influenster so much fun!

When I received my package, I couldn't believe the size of the products! There were 3 full size 16fl oz bottles of Palmolive Fresh Infusions dish soap in the "Vox" box, in three different scents!

 I received Ginger White Tea, Lemon Thyme, and Lime Basil. I gave away the Lemon Thyme to my friend, and also gave her a coupon..and I kept the other two bottles. I'm using Ginger White Tea right now..and I love the scent! It's my favorite scent because it smells so fresh. While washing dishes, the dishwater stayed bubbly and foamy to whole time..and my dishes rinsed clean with no residue. I noticed how easy the stuck on food particles came off with this dish soap. I highly recommend to anyone who hand washes dishes! You can buy Palmolive Fresh Infusions at Walmart and Target!

Hotel Transylvania: Mavis’ 118th Birthday Bash!

When Crowdtap chose me to host a Hotel Transylvania party I was so excited! I had seen the previews for the movie, Hotel Transylvania, and really wanted to go see it! Getting to host a birthday party for Mavis; Dracula's daughter is such an honor! I wanted to make it special so we celebrated her birthday by inviting friends and kids over for a day of activities, games, eating, and more! Crowdtap so graciously provided me with a digital party kit full of fun activities, games, and printable coloring pages for the kids to enjoy!

Being a parent, I find myself bringing my child to the movie theater often to see cartoon movies. Sometimes the movies are not tailored for all, but this movie has such an amazing cast that parents will surely enjoy Hotel Transylvania too! Here's a line up of the cast:

I love Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Cee lo, and Andy Samberg! I was so excited to hear that all of these famous stars were in the movie!

Here's what was included in the kit:

• Info about Hotel Translyvania and its cast
 • Some freakishly fun word games to entertain the kids
 • Coloring pages of scenes from the Hotel Translyvania movie
• A Monster Mask to pretend like you’re one of Hotel T’s guests
• A wildly addictive interactive collection of online games
• A scary good recipe for Make-A-Monster Cupcakes
 • A breakdown of how throw a monster of a party

BOO! You're Invited!

No Humans allowed at Hotel Transylvania! My party welcomes monsters as well as humans!

 Because of Mavis' dad, Dracula, Mavis isn't allowed outside of Hotel I have see what I can do to bring the party to her! I have a bunch of tricks up my sleeve to bring the guests to my party!

     MAVIS? Is that you? What would your father say about this?

He seems to be ok with the party! I guess he'd do anything for his little ghoul! LOL On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters -- Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more -- to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday..

                                                  Hey! Look everyone! It's Frankenstein!

                                             And here's his bride, Mrs. Eunice Frankenstein!

The Werewolves Wayne and Wanda have 3 children and this is Wilbur
Here is the second Werewolf child, Winnie. The third and oldest werewolf kid, Wally, didn't want to be photographed.

I had lots of good food for everyone to enjoy at the party. I made cupcakes, cookies with caramel hershey kisses, and pizza!

I also had Halloween Oreos with orange filling to enjoy as well!

As you can see the kids really love their Oreos!

Here's me enjoying some of the pizza I made. Mavis can't eat pizza. It has garlic!

But Mavis can eat cupcakes! Better watch out, she just might bite you for your cupcake!

There were so many games provided by Crowdtap in the digital kit! The kids really enjoyed playing. I did too!

There were a bunch of scenes from the movie that were turned into coloring pages for the children to enjoy. The kids never actually colored the pictures, though. They were too into the online games and pretending to be the characters with the masks!

I wasn't allowed to invite Johnny, per Dracula's request, but don't tell Mavis!

There may not be any humans allowed at Hotel Transylvania, but I sure did enjoy having famous monsters come to my party! I hope Mavis enjoyed her 118th birthday party!

Don't let the fun stop here! Go see Hotel Transylvania!
