InkJoy by Papermate – The Joy of Writing

I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here. Writing - actual pen to paper writing - used to be something I did on a regular basis. Whether it was for school or hobby, it seemed I was always writing something. That has changed a lot with technology and these days the bulk of what I handwrite are to-do or shopping lists. My hands cramp from carpal tunnel when I write much more than that, plus there's no need. I can send a text or message just as easily. That being said, I do still write those lists and when I do I expect my pens to work. I'm sure you know how frustrating it is when a pen doesn't work - I always give it a few tries, scribbling in a circle trying to get it to work again. Then I hunt for a new pen. I almost always end up empty, pens are never around with you need them! With InkJoy pens by Paper Mate, I don't have to worry about pens giving out or the ink being goopy. I was sent a variety of InkJoy pens … [Read more...]

Old Orchard’s New Fall Flavors are Delicious!

Caramel Apple

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. Juice is probably my favorite thing to drink. I love pretty much every flavor - other than blueberry, but even that if it's in a mixed berry juice I'll still drink it. Orange is probably my favorite, but juice blends are near the top of the list as well. Old Orchard juice has made it into my fridge more than once, though I can't say it stays in there very long. I tend to drink it pretty quickly and that's because it tastes so good! I was recently sent a few of Old Orchard's limited-edition fruit juice cocktails. Let me tell you I'm loving the new fall flavors! They are all naturally sweetened and made with real fruit juice. Apple Pie: Hints of cinnamon, vanilla bean and nutmeg. Caramel Apple: A creamy caramel taste that complements the flavor of crisp fall … [Read more...]
