Tired of Leftovers?! Check out my Tandoor Chef Review & #Giveaway for Authentic Indian Cuisine.

I know there's a bazillion ways to prepare leftover Thanksgiving Turkey, and side dishes, but I get sick of eating the same kind of thing, all the time. Plus, I like to spend time with my family, not hours in the kitchen cooking.  

My local Giant Eagle carries Tandoor Chef prepackaged Indian Cuisine.  I decided to try the

Chicken Tikka Masala with Cumin-Infused Basmati Rice,

and the Chicken Curry with Seasoned Basmati Rice.

The sauces are all Authentic in seasoning, and the chicken was moist, from soaking up the seasoning.  Also, the rice was just right! I can't stand overly cooked, mooshy microwaveable rice. This rice did not do that, at all.

Here are the Tandoor Chef meals right after they come out the Microwave.  I split each in 1/2 to have a nice little buffet with the Hubby.  If you are craving something different, and don't feel like eating out, or cooking, you should really check out TANDOOR CHEF.  

Tandoor Chef makes appetizers, naan, and meals. Some are Veg, and even Gluten Free.

If your local store doesn't carry Tandoor Chef, ask at customer service can they Order it, or check Tandoor Chef out on Amazon. I wouldn't mind some boxes of Food delivered to my front door for the Holidays! I'd be beyond Thankful!

The Tattoo Pill Review.

I have been taking The Tattoo Pill for over 3 weeks now.  It's full of various Vitamins that body needs anyways, that I should be taking since I am in the dreaded 30's to begin with.  It's just even nicer that by taking these, you are helping to UP your natural immune system.  I had no side effects, and felt pretty good waking up in the AM.  The pills are Gluten Free, and 100% Vegetable.

 The Pin-Up chick on the bottle made me smile.  Least that makes it different than all other Vitamin Bottles.  Want to know more? Ask them!

Check out The Tattoo Pill on Facebook @

Overall opinion on the Tattoo Pill - Super cute bottle.  Love the Pin-up Old School aspect, and the Vitamins inside.  I also think since it's vitamins, and you're into piercings as well.  This can help your bodies immune system in the healing process too.  I am not a doctor, and all opinions are my own.  You can always ask your doctor if taking these pills would be a good idea, especially if you are on any other kind of vitamins.

Product Description

The Tattoo Pill is packed with 30 vitamins and minerals that your body needs to help operate at ideal levels. The Tattoo Pill has 15 ingredients that are 100% OR MORE of the recommended daily intake percentage endorsed by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

Some people think getting a tattoo is simple and easy, just go to the shop and have some ink put under your skin. However, there is more to it if you want a healthy tattoo that heals nicely and looks great. When you are getting a tattoo you are having very tiny needles poke holes in your skin, over and over and over again. What ends up happening is that you are left with an open wound and your body is working overtime to help fight off infection and heal your skin. The best way to prevent infection and help your body heal as fast as possible is to make sure your body has the vitamins and nutrients it needs to facilitate the healing process.

Dragon & Phoenix Filtering Tea Mug, and Cherry Almond Black Tea Review.

I have always been a huge fan of tea.  A good cup of tea helps me de-stress myself.  Even at a young age, I would drink Tea with some of my Aunts.  It was our thing to do.  Over the years, I would much rather drink Tea, than Sodas too.  It's just what I love.  A lot don't know this, but the Green in my blog name is for Green Tea.  Vics is for my Son's name.  Two things that I love more than anything.

I discovered, and just had to try some of their loose leaf teas.  Since it was my husbands, and I's anniversary I thought a matching set of the Dragon & Phoenix Filtering Tea Mugs would be ideal. They are! The pictures online do not do the cups justice.  They are beautiful.  I actually have a dragon tattoo, so I'm a little biased when it comes to them.  I think we all need a little power, good fortune, and luck.  The Phoenix is just as iconic, and full of meaning.  As for life, we are all knocked down, and want to rise from our own ashes.  That is what life is,  things happen, you do everything you can to overcome it, and move on.  

The above video I took to show just how easy it is to brew your own cup of tea.  Nothing special to do. Just add the tea, pour hot water over the tea, put the lid on, and let it steep.  The lids themself help steep the tea faster, and keeps it hot for longer.  Not all mugs have that, or the removeable filter.  In the video I show how beautiful the tea turns out once the filter is lifted up.  You can also see how none of the loose leaf tea even gets into the brewed tea itself.  These Dragon & Phoenix mugs retail for under $10.00.  Each Mug is sold seperately, one side is a dragon, and the other side is a pheonix that wraps around the mugs.  If mythical beings aren't your thing, there are other designs for the filtering tea mugs.

I really enjoyed the Cherry Almond Black loose leaf tea.  There are pieces of sliced almonds, and dried cherries through out the tea itself.  I was impressed with the quality, and the smell of the tea as soon as I even opened the tin lid's, and even more so once the tea started to steep.  I am also going to try the Liche Green Tea, and Japanese Green Tea.  I drink green tea mostly, so I wanted to try the Cherry Almond Black Tea first.  Both myself, and my husband thought the tea was strong (just the way we like it, you should be able to taste the tea.) and went down smoothely.  I could taste the almond, and cherry, gave it a nice extra sweetness that the stevia sugar I used in it amplified.  I also like a little fat free milk in my tea.  I'm ready for another cup.

There will also be a giveaway for a Smart Tea Maker, and 4 ounces of the winners choice of tea! So make sure you come back to check that out.  I promise you, you will not be dissapointed!

OraMD Review for 100% Natural Mouth Care

I really thought the 2 drops used at each cleaning did clean my teeth, and my breath.  I don't have gum problems, but if you do, this can help with inflammation.  It's chemical free .  So you won't receive more irritation.  It also kills bacteria.  My overall experience is a great one with OraMD, I've been using mine for almost a month, and a little does go a long way.

More about OraMD:
  • Brush twice a day in the morning and evenin using 2-5 drops of OraMD on a toothbrush and brush normally.   
  • Floss every evening before brushing – more frequently as needed. Get any food particles out from between teeth. Use OraMD as mouthwash twice a day: morning and evening.
  • Just put 2-5 drops into an ounce of water, swish and gargle. This is important to kill the bacteria in the entire mouth including the back of the tongue.
  •  Mid-morning, mid-afternoon and as needed: put 2-5 drops on the tip of the tongue to coat the gum line and teeth to kill bacteria and keep breath fresh.

Check OraMD out on their social media websites below.

The manufacturer is willing to offer my readers one FREE bottle. They said they would love to have our readers try out OraMD and agreed to send one bottle FREE if our readers would pay a minimal shipping and handling charge. They also agreed to include 2 eye-opening reports called 1) “The 6 Hidden Dangers In Toothpaste” and 2) “Why The FDA Requires A Warning Label On Your Toothpaste.” That’s a total value of over $40.00.

Yo Gabba Gabba Live! 2013 At The Aronoff Center in Cincinati Ohio was AWESOME!

We Rocked out with Dj Lance Rock, Muno, Toodee, Plex, Brobee, & Foofa!

Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! Get the Sillies Out! Was so much fun!  My family, and I went to see the show at the Aronoff Center, in Cincinati, Ohio on 1/10/2013. It was the first stop on the new tour!  Check your cities for tour dates! There are also some fun activities for the kids to play while waiting for the show to start, along with a free raffle for VIP family passes during the intermission.

Sy wanted to go to the Party in Munos Tummy.

Soon as we walked in, and up the steps at the Aronoff Center to the Proctor & Gamble Hall there were Games for the kids to play while waiting for the show to start.   One game was to teach kids to turn off lights in a Doll house that had the Yo Gabba Gabba Gang.  Another game was to create music with natural items.  My favorite game was the Bean Bag toss.  Each game they received a stamp of the characters, the stamps gave the kids a chance to sign up to win a VIP family pass to meet the Gang after the show.  By the way, it's free to play the games!

The time passed by quickly playing the games, that before we knew it, it was time to be seated. Our seats were in the First Orchestra section.  We were so close that when Dj Lance came out, and the Secret words, Yo Gabba Gabba! were spoken the confetti shot out, and covered us in it.  It was exciting!  My 2 year old's smile at that moment made me beyond happy that this was his first Live Show!

I will tell you there are Bugs,  Fruits, and Veggie Dancers.. even Bubbles!  With a lot more confetti! The light show, along with the Gabba Gang was very entertaining.  This was also my husbands first concert!  He danced when they said to stand, and dance too.  I must say Biz Markie rocked!!!!!  When Biz, and his Dj came out, they were rocking Michael Jackson and the theater went crazy.  It even made me dance!  This was the part of the show that Biz invited kids on stage to do the beat of the day.  It was super cute.  A little girl that was probably no older than 4 had the best beat.

Get The Sillies Out! We've got to jump, shake, shimmy them out!

Here are some video clips, and more photos of  Sy partying in Gabba Land.  

I received these tickets for free for being AWESOME, well for writing this review.  All opinions, and photos are my own.  I hope you enjoyed my review, and want to go get the sillies out with your family!

{ Review } The SNOTARATOR Nasal Vacuum Review.

I hooked the Snotarator to my vacuums attachment.  It really does fit, and the suction wasn't a lot, it was a consistent pressure the whole time the snotarator was in.  My son isn't afraid of the vacuum so the noise did not bother him.  He has been snotty lately, and it did work.

You can see the snot that came out his nose with no effort, I barely put the Snotarator to his nostrils.  It did not hurt him ( I did try it on myself before putting it near his face, and it really is safe.)

{ Short Story Review } The Unfinished by Patrice Williams

The short story The Unfinished by Patrice Williams really is worth checking out. While reading the story I could feel the dark wit that consumed Donny York. Also his concept of the Unfinished, and how the government could bring back the dead for 72 hours for murder case trials was a very cool concept! I am a total fan of dark humor, twists, and the sci-fi nature of things. It would be unreal to have some one come back to point their decomposing finger at their killer, but in this short story they can. The visuals from the deaths some of these Unfinishers experienced were just gross (and, I like gross.) I'd love to see something like this turned into a full novel, and then a SERIES, or even a movie. But, I'd rather it be a series! I don't want to give too much away.. tho maybe Melanies licorice perfume, and her not remembering Donny drove him to do something drastic in his mundane life.. I thought the story was well written, and it kept my attention.

You can check the UnFinished out on Amazon, & read my review there too.

Few Social Word Of Mouth Sites

These are the Social word of mouth sites I am part of, and enjoy reviewing free products either by coupons, rebates, or actual samples, and sometimes even full size through the mail for my opinion.

There are many different sites, and each site has its own rules, and what is expected of you to do for accepting a mission/campaign/whatever it may be called.

I upload videos of myself showing & talking about products on some sites like,

These are just a few of my top favorites to participate in.

Sometimes just a picture is needed, and for you to write a review/report. Other times actual videos, and surveys too. I enjoy doing things like this. It's great to be taken outside of our comfort zones, and pushed into trying things we normally may never have tried.
