Teen Beach 2 DVD Review #TeenBeach2



Dive in and rock out with the hottest surf sequel under the sun! Now that summer ‘s over and school has begun, Brady (Ross Lynch) and Mack’s (Maia Mitchell) relationship seems headed for a wipeout – until Lela, Tanner and the “Wet Side Story” kids show up! Dazzled by the novelty and variety of the modern world, Lela wants to stay, but the real world and the “reel” world just don’t mix. Can Mack and Brady find the magic to get the kids home and get their own romance back on track before it’s too late? Packed with electrifying song & dance numbers and hilarious fish-out-of-water wackiness, Teen Beach 2 is “wow-abunga” fun for everyone.

MY REVIEW
As summer is ending we get to see how our favorite couple, Brady and Mack, are doing once school starts back up and they're pushed back into reality with both their different group of friends and their plans for their future are involved. It turns out they are both pretty different when not on summer break and begin to have problems. Meanwhile, Lela is starting to change and has been wanting something more, something different ever since Brady and Mack left their world. She no longer wants to play the part in the movie where she's the damsel in distress. She wants to find out who she is so she ends up traveling to the real world and Tanner follows her. Once there they run into their friends Brady and Mack and things start happening to their world since the two leading characters are no longer in the movie. As Brady and Mack are still having their problems, it's up to Lela and Tanner to help them realize that they belong together.

Teen Beach 2 is back and better than ever with lots of new catchy songs and some of our favorite old ones, with a twist. This was such a great movie for my daughter and I to watch together. We had a girls weekend and re-watched Teen Beach before we watched Teen Beach 2 and now it looks like we'll be having a Teen Beach 10th birthday party for my daughter. She is a huge fan and I have to admit, so am I.

If you had tweens and teens who loved the first movie, be sure to grab Teen Beach 2 as it is now out on DVD!

Curious George 3: Back To The Jungle DVD Review



Launch into the adventure of a lifetime with everyone’s favorite monkey in this all-new movie, Curious George 3: Back to the Jungle! When Curious George is asked to take part in a very important space mission, a little monkeying around forces him to crash-land in Africa. While a worried Man with the Yellow Hat searches for him, Curious George bravely explores the jungle and makes new animal friends along the way. Reunited at last, the two best pals have an unforgettable adventure shared with their new friends! Featuring the voice talents of Angela Bassett & John Goodman, with music by the Plain White T’s, join Curious George on his fun-filled journey that the whole family will enjoy!

MY REVIEW
The latest installment in the Curious George movies was just as good as the other two. I remember reading the books when I was younger and even watching the cartoons on TV, so watching the Curious George movies with my kids has always been fun and reminds me of my childhood. This time George is going back to the jungle, but not on purpose. As our favorite monkey is as curious as ever on a mission to space, he accidently lands in Africa. While he's there he's exploring and making new friends while the person who loves him the most is on a mission to find him and bring him home. This movie is great for families with young kids, because it's not only a great story-line, it also has some catchy songs that will have your kids singing for days. Curios George 3: Back To The Jungle is now out on DVD for you to bring home.

Celebrating Potty Training Month with a Kandoo Giveaway! #kandookids


Last week I wrote a post about potty training and how I got through it with my older two and how I'm still a bit nervous to do it all over again in a few months after my little one turns one. Not everyone will have the same experience. In fact, not every kid has the same experience as each kid is different, so you have to potty train them according to what works for them. It can be anything from aiming at fruit loops, like my son did, or using a sticker rewarding system, like I did with my daughter. Either way, don't put too much stress on your child or yourself to get them trained. If it takes a while for them to get the hang of it, it's okay. They will eventually get it.



You all know that I've been a Kandoo Ambassador for the last two years. Not only is this a brand I've used and currently still do use with my kids, but it's also a brand I trust completely. I've been using Kandoo ever since my oldest who is going on ten, first started potty training. So to celebrate potty training month, we're partnering up with Kandoo and offering one of of Just Us Girls readers a Kandoo Prize pack that includes the entire line of Kandoo products! This is a perfect prize for any mom with little ones that are about to start potty training or even for those who have little ones who are already trained.

For more information about Kandoo and their products be sure to head over to www.kandookids.ca

Rickard's Radler Grapefruit (Review & Giveaway)


Summer will officially be here in less than a week. You know what that means? Time for lots of barbecues, pool parties and lots of outdoor time! I'm so excited to be outside and soaking up the sun. There's nothing like relaxing outside with your family and why not enjoy it with a nice cold beer? Although I'm not a huge beer drinker, I do love to have the occasional beer when it's really hot out or when I've been working on the yard.

I was recently introduced to Rickard's Radler Grapefruit. You guys, this is such a great drink and perfect to sip on during those hot days. You all know I'm a fan of Rickard's, so when I had the opportunity to try their Radler Grapefruit, a lightly flavored beer that was flavored with grapefruit, I was thrilled.



Even if you're not a beer drinker, you'll find Rickard's Radler to be crisp and refreshing with the tart of grapefruit leaving your taste buds enticed for another round. It's not as strong tasting as most beers and doesn't leave you bloated, it's really light.

Rickard's Radler is combined with their traditional Rickard's Lager and refreshing lemon and grapefruit juice. At only 3.2% alcohol, it's a perfect light and refreshing drink to have this Summer. For more information about Rickard's Radler Grapefruit and other Rickard's beverages, head to www.rickards.ca.


GIVEAWAY!
We've partnered up with Rickard's to give one lucky Just Us Girls readers a chance to win a Rickard's Prize pack. The prize pack includes, two Rickard’s T-shirts, two Rickard’s pint glasses and a two orange slice designed bottle openers. Giveaway is open to our Canadian readers only, good luck!

St. Ive's Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub & Body Wash Review


I love trying new bath and body products, especially when they're from a brand that I already trust and love. So when I heard about St. Ive's Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange scrub and body wash, I knew I had to try it. With Summer being around the corner and the weather warming up, I love using products in the shower that smells both fresh and clean. 



I already use their Apricot face scrub. I've been using it over a year now and so there was no doubt that I would love the Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub. What I love about this scrub is how when you apply it on your face it goes on smooth, It first feels like lotion being applied and once you rub it in to clean your face and rinse it off, your face feels fresh, clean and smooth. It's made with 100% naturally derived exfoliants and is made to polish away little imperfections for bright, radiant and more even-toned skin.

After using the Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange body wash, I can tell you that it's now one of my all time favorites to use in the warmer months of the year. Not only does it lathers up great when applied, you'll feel like you've been given a burst of energy from the smell of the citrus scent. I love the feeling of feeling fresh and clean when getting out of the shower and this does just that.

Both the scrub and body wash are formulated without parabens, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and retail between $5.19-$7.49 at stores near you. For more information about the new Bright Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange products and other St. Ive products be sure to head to www.stives.ca.
