Matt Kearney Album "Young Love" Review

I was chosen by One2One Network to review the new album Young Love by Matt Kearney. 

I have listened to his music before and really enjoyed it, so I was super excited to be chosen for this review. If you are interested, check out his Facebook page. You can also visit his website where you can read more about the artist, and finally you can go to his itunes page and download his album!

After listening to the entire album, I have decided I like his older music better. I thought this album was good, but a little to mellow for my liking. There were 3 songs that I enjoyed more than others. 
  • Track 1 - "Hey Mama" 
    • This was my favorite. It was much more upbeat and faster and I really enjoyed it.
  • Track 7  - "Down"
    • This was a bit faster too, the only thing I wasn't 100% sold on was the topic.
  • Track 8 - "She Got the Honey" 
    • Finally this song was fast and fun and I loved the rhythm.

Overall though I love Matt Kearney's voice and the range he has, 
as well as the overall style of his music.

August 24's "Not Really" Mail Call

Today's post is a little bit different. 
These are all things I got for FREE, but not all from the mail.

The two magazines were the only things waiting for me at my parent's from the mail.

I got the LTD Commodities catalog from my mom after she was finished with it. 

The Bed, Bath & Beyond coupon was in my Aunt's mail, but she didn't want it. 
 Also the blank envelope was from her mail too.

The white bag is coupons that my mom gets me when all of the newspapers don't sell on Sunday's, and the other coupons are from my family's newspapers that they were recycling.

The Powerade cap was on the sidewalk (attached to the bottle that a kid left there.) If you're wondering why I wanted the cap, then you don't know about My Coke Rewards! You should certainly learn, it's a great program! I'll be happy to write a post with info if anyone wants.

Finally the Thank You card and $10 Starbucks gift card are from my apartment complex's leasing office; they give away 10 per month to the residents who complete a checklist that consists of sharing their link through various places on the internet. I win every month!

My Review of the Kashi TLC Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola Bar

(I did not get paid to try this product.) 


I got a FREE sample of the Kashi TLC Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola Bar in the mail yesterday. Here's a quote from their product page: "Each bar starts with our signature blend of 7 whole grains for a hearty, natural wholesomeness. The chewy granola base is then topped with real fruit spread and hearty nuts. And with 4g of fiber, 4g of protein and real fruit, they're as nutritious as they are tasty."

I took some photos before I ate it.

I think the bar has a great texture and ingredients, but I didn't love the dark chocolate taste. I noticed that there are 3 other varieties of this type of bar, and I'd probably enjoy one or more of those a lot more.

A coupon for a FREE Suave Professionals product, and a credit card statement from Old Navy with a $20 reward in it! Not too shabby!

Mail Call! August 12th

Not a bad mail day. I got a book called High Steel that I ordered from Amazon as a present for my boyfriend. He is an ironworker in NYC and it's perfect for him because it's all about the ironworkers who work in NYC, and there are even people he works with mentioned in the book. I paid less than $4 and used a gift card from Swagbucks, so it was free! I'll either give it to him for his birthday or Christmas, they're very close to eachother. 

I also got 2 samples of "minteas," which arer tea mints. There is one for fitness and one for energy. They look interesting. 

Finally I got a credit card statement ($0 balance, wohoo!) that I can use the envelope (that they send you for payments) for organizing coupons when I take them to the stores with me. 

How was your mail day?

I just logged into Squidoo and saw that today is payday! 
I'll be getting $1.80 in my PayPal account.

Carmex Products and a Giveaway!!

I just got a Carmex Blog Squad Kit in the mail!

I am part of the Carmex Blogger Outreach and was sent the items to try and review.  I always share my honest opinions of the products.

Inside was a really cute picnic blanket, and Carmex products to try out! 
  • Lime Twist click stick
  • Vanilla click stick
They look awesome right?! They have a great scent and taste, and they leave your lips feeling super smooth. They have 3 more moisturizers in them than the original Carmex products. They even have SPF 15 so they keep your lips safer from the sun!

Well guess what, I'm giving away a kit just like the one I got to one lucky reader! All you have to do for a chance to win is follow one of my blogs and leave a comment on this post letting my know that you do so. This giveaway will end on September 1st.

(You can find all 4 of my blogs on my profile page- )

*(I will send the winner's name and address to Carmex and they will send out the kit, U.S. residents only.)

Here's a peak at the picnic blanket all opened up. It has a great reinforced backing that makes it great when the grass is a bit damp, you won't feel it at all!

Good Luck!
