Music Monday, Vegas Baby!

Happy Music Monday! I'm heading to Las Vegas on Wednesday. So, I figured why not some Vegas themed music for this week?! So here we go!

Don't worry, I won't be taking any shots on the rooftop. :)

Have a musiclicious week, and make sure to head over to Xmas Dolly's for more Music Monday fun!

Wordless Wednesday, Dog Discovers Pool

We recently moved to a new house.
With this new house came a pool.
My girls threw their rubber duckies in the pool.
My dog has never seen a pool.
He saw the rubber duckies in the pool.

He fell in the pool.

Music Monday, Feeling Down

I haven't been feeling well, so I'm late with my Music Monday post which is really sad because I picked the theme.  How appropriate that the theme is the Blues or songs that make you sad.

Make sure to head over to XmasDolly's for more Sad songs.

Dropkick Murphys Provide Soundtrack for Latest Pirate Adventure

You know how much I love good music, and I love pirates. I am in a Tampa pirate Krewe, after all! So, I was so excited to see the new Captain Morgan commercial. The song in the commercial is Prisoner's Song by Dropkick Murphys. It is from their newest album Signed and sealed in Blood and is the perfect song for Captain Morgan. I just saw the Dropkicks in St. Pete. As always, they put on a great show full of energy. If you get the chance to see them in concert, Do it! They are Wicked awesome!

Check out this commercial, I'm sure it will make you want to throw on a corset, wave your Jolly Roger flag, and throw back some Captain Morgan rum. (My favorite is coconut. Yum!)

Watch for Chapter 2 and 3 later in 2013. Keep up with Captain Morgan's adventures on Facebook.

Want more of the Dropkick Murphys? Listen to SIGNED and SEALED in BLOOD It is a great album all the way through!

Olay Total Effects Review, $25 Walmart Giveaway

At the end of this post you can enter to win a $25 Walmart gift card, but first, let me tell you what you're probably going to want to buy with it!

I'm very particular about my skin care because despite being 38 years old, my face seems to get confused and thinks it's a teenager with full on acne. When my skins not too oily, it's too dry, not to mention pores that are large enough to park a small car in! Oh, and did I mention that I'm starting to get wrinkles! Nothing major just a few fine lines, but that's how it thing you know I'll be pulling my hair back just to pull my skin tight!

Anyway, when I heard about Olay Total Effects CC cream, I was more than a little skeptical , but I figured why not give it a try. I'd use it for a couple days and then give it to a friend because I knew I wouldn't like it. I was SO WRONG!  I've now been using it for 3 weeks, and you'd have to pry it out of my hands to take it away! I love it! And more importantly my pores like it!

I can really see improvement in my skin. It's smoother, tighter, my pores are smaller, and the color, wow! Most of my redness is gone, and even when I don't have it on! And the best part is when I'm wearing it, it doesn't feel heavy, and NO BREAKOUTS! Not a 1!

I just put it on in the morning in the place of my normal foundation, and then put my powder over it. I've even left the house in just it. Well I mean, I had clothes on, of course, just no other makeup, because of the natural tint, you don't need it. Oh, and ladies this isn't one of those tints that makes you look like an oompa loompa, it is very natural.

Olay really helps me look and feel my best, and you can try it to if you win the $25 Walmart Gift card giveaway. You can enter below, but first read the official info: It really is very cool!
