Mary Lambert - Heart On My Sleeve review!

I participated in the Mary Lambert Heart On My Sleeve album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all views expressed are the honest opinion of Just Say I Told You So.

I ❤︎ Mary Lambert. I love that she is genuinely herself. She's not trying to fit into a box, and she's not afraid to color all over the page either. 

Mary's new album Heart On My Sleeve is fabulous! There are several tracks that I'm really feeling, but they're all great if you ask me.

Track List
  1. Secrets this one is fabulous.. excellent single selection
  2. So far away
  3. Ribcage
  4. Dear One - excellent spoken word piece
  5. When you sleep
  6. Chasing the moon great uptempo track
  7. Jessie's girl - classic remake
  8. Monochromatic love this one
  9. Wounded animal
  10. Sum of our parts



In a time where so many artists sound the same and we've been auto-tuned to death, Mary Lambert is a breath of refreshing oxygen. Her voice is lovely and her lyrics are awesome. I think that she has a bright future ahead of her... and she's creating her own lane! 

Heart On My Sleeve is currently in stores now. Also available on iTunes and Amazon.

See what Mary's up to on her website. You can also follow her around on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram.

Nescafe Dolce Gusto review + giveaway #Sponsored

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All views expressed are the honest opinion of Just Say I Told You So.

I don't quite remember when I first fell in love with coffee, but I am smitten. There is nothing like the smell of fresh brewed joe wafting through the air. And the taste... Ah! The taste of coffee is just... well, delicious!

Of course now that we are living in the age of the swanky coffeehouse, I don't brew coffee at home as much as I used to. That is until I received a Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine!

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto is a single-serve coffee machine that brews up coffeehouse worthy beverages in less than one minute (yes, it really is that fast). 

What's better than a delicious frothy cup of coffee? Enjoying a delicious frothy cup of coffee in the comfort of my own home, with no muss and no fuss. My mornings are busy enough already, the Nescafe Dolce Gusto takes one more thing off my already filled-to-the-brim morning routine.

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine comes in several different styles and colors, to suit your taste and lifestyle. And there are 19 different hot and cold beverage varieties to choose from, that means you can change it up, if diversity is your flavor of choice. 

This is my first venture into the realm of the coffee machine and I'm pretty impressed with how easy (+ quick) it is to make a cup. And since there are so many flavor choices (including decafe and non-coffee options), I can have a hot or cold beverage anytime of the day! 

Look how easy it is to use:




The clean-up is almost non-existent too. No coffee grounds all over the place. No separate milk-frothing pot. Just a coffee pod (or two depending on the beverage), water, cup, and a button to push. Can you say easy?

Because I adore my readers so very much and I want you to have the opportunity to step up your home coffee game too... so I'll be giving away a Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine to one lucky winner!

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto is now available at Target.com. Be sure to visit the Nescafe Dolce Gusto website and follow on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, and YouTube.

Sprint Fit Live - Fitness at your fingertips! #Sponsored #MC #SprintMom

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf Influence Central for Sprint. I received sample devices to facilitate this review. All views expressed are the honest opinion of Just Say I Told You So. 

Since I turned 40, I have totally stepped up my fitness game. I don't know if I've simply become hyperaware of my mortality or if subtle aches of being 40-ish have me on edge... probably both. Either way I exercise more now than I ever have in my adult life. And while I don't think I will ever be the type of person that loves to work out, I am now the kind of person who works out regularly.

When it comes to working out, convenience has to be the most important thing. For me, exercise has to be accessible and easy. And that goes for all tools and equipment too. That's why I think that Sprint Fit Live is so cool.


Sprint Fit Live is not just an app, it's a "complete mobile health and fitness package." And to make the experience even more comprehensive, Sprint has partnered with Samsung, Under Armour, and MapMyFitness to introduce the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport!

The Galaxy S5 Sport is not your average cellphone. It allows you to keep track of your workouts, it monitors your heart rate, and tracks your progress. 

MapMyFitness is like a GPS system that tracks your fitness activities like: distance, duration, speed, pace, elevation, calories burned, and the route you traveled. 

A few weeks ago I had an opportunity to participate in a fitness demonstration at a local Sprint store. So I was able to witness and experience Sprint Fit Live and the Galaxy S5 Sport first hand. 



The ability to track your progress on the Samsung Gear Fit was my favorite part. I know how much I "guess" my progress, which means I spend a lot of time giving myself more credit than I deserve for progress that I may or may not have achieved. But these savvy tools eliminate the guess work altogether. 

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport is exclusive to Sprint. And they're offering some very cool purchase incentives:
  • MapMyFitness - free for one year.
  • Sprint Fit Live - free
  • Spotify Premium - free for 6 or 3 months 
  • Samsung Gear Fit- $50 off
If you've been putting off making exercise a regular part of your life, maybe setting yourself up with tools of success is just what you need! 

Visit your local Sprint store, follow them on Facebook and Twitter too.

Family Feud is on TV Land!

All views expressed are the honest opinion of Just Say I Told You So.
My grandmother has always been a game show fanatic. You are guaranteed to find her watching her favorite game shows on weekday mornings, weekday afternoon, and weekday evenings... without fail. And Family Feud is one of her all-time favorites!

My grandmother has watched Family Feud from the very beginning. She has been an unwavering fan through all it's incarnations... but the current host, Steve Harvey, is her 2nd all-time favorite (she's loyal to the original host, Richard Dawson).

She loves Steve Harvey because of the way he connects with the contestants, but mostly because of his quick wit and hilarious facial expressions.  

See what I mean:


Well it seems that Christmas has come early for my Grandmother, because now she can have even more Steve Harvey since Family Feud has been launched into syndication on TV Land

If you don't currently watch the show take a look at this clip, so you can see why my granny thinks it's all the rage:




You can tune into Family Feud for endless belly laughs weeknights from 8-9pm on TV Land

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, #VeryBadDay review

This is not a paid post. I was invited to free screening of this movie by Disney.
All views expressed are the honest opinion of Just Say I Told You So. 

I checked out Disney's Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day early last week and I have to tell you that I thought it was pretty funny! 

About the movie

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is the story of 11 year old Alexander who has a day that was terrible from the moment he awakened with gum in his hair and it never got better. Every one else in his family seems to experience great days, every day, so they don't exactly sympathize with him. But on Alexander's birthday the tables turn in his favor, he's having the best day ever while everyone else experiences a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day!






Review

This movie was LOL funny! There were several scenes that had the entire theater in stitches! At the same time the storyline was pretty darn good, it warmed the cockles of my heart. 

We all experience bad days, sometimes several in a row. It often feels like it only happens to us, which isn't true, so it's always nice to remember that the fickle finger of fate does not discriminate. Even more than that, it's nice to be reminded that bad times don't last, and being able to laugh in the face of adversity makes it bearable. 

This is a movie for all ages. Be sure to put it on your TBS (to be seen) list. Bring the kids along... and the adults too!




Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is in theaters now!

If you check out the movie and you love it, make sure you tweet #VeryBadDay :-)
