The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Sixth Season Or The Originals: The Complete Second Season Giveaway


Two of CW's most popular shows are coming out on DVD, and you have a chance to win a copy for yourself.  
About The Vampire Diaries The Complete Sixth Season
The Vampire Diaries continues its sixth season with more delicious drama to sink your teeth into. In season five, after a passionate summer with Damon, Elena headed to Whitmore College with Caroline, not knowing Bonnie sacrificed her life for Jeremy’s. Meanwhile, Stefan and Caroline’s friendship deepened as they stood up to the Travelers, a nomadic witch tribe driven to strip Mystic Falls of magic and cast out its supernatural residents. In the shocking season finale, Damon, fearing he would lose his loved ones on the crumbling Other Side, made a huge sacrifice to bring them all back — with catastrophic and heartbreaking results. Season six follows the characters’ journey back to each other as they explore the duality of good versus evil inside themselves. Matt Davis reprises his role as Alaric Saltzman, recently returned from The Other Side. Plus, the season will make you misty-eyed as the departure of a major character will turn lives upside down and leave us asking what happened to Mystic Falls.

About The Originals The Complete Second Season

As Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson returned to the vibrant, supernaturally charged city of New Orleans in season one, he was stunned to learn — along with his siblings Elijah and Rebekah — that Hayley, a werewolf, was pregnant with his child, and his vampire protégé, Marcel, whom the Original siblings had thought long dead, was ruling the French Quarter. Soon, a bloody war escalated between vampires and witches — the stakes raised by powerful teenage witch Davina and by Klaus’s bond with Cami, a student with a painful past — and a ruthless pack of wolves seized the opportunity to stage a violent coup. Now, in season two, a new status quo must be adjusted to, as the newly empowered werewolves control the city. Klaus struggles with weaknesses as Elijah desperately tries to save Hayley — now a hybrid — from a vicious spiral of self-destruction. Meanwhile, with the re-emergence of several Mikaelsons, “family is power” takes on new meaning.

Bauli's Mini Sweet Indulgences: Croissants Snacks for All & Giveaway

 
After coming back from our trip to France, I was so excited to get to try a European inspired snack. 
 
The Bauli Mini Croissants are oven baked treats perfect for a quick snack. 
 
The Bauli company has made authentic Italian pastries for decades.  What's great is that they pride themselves in not using chemical additives, nor artificial colors in their pastries.
 
 
The Mini Croissants come in two different flavor; Chocolate and Vanilla.  And I love that they are portion controlled at only 50 calories a pop!
 
These were perfect to satisfy my sweet tooth. 
 
 
The Bauli Mini Croissants are perfect to take on-the-go!  My favorite was the chocolate, but that's because I'm a chocolate freak.  The vanilla custard tasted great as well. 
It's a great snack for everyone.  My kids loved them! 
 
The Mini Croissants are moist and flavorful, and it's nice to snack on something different once in a while.

McDonald's "Restaurant of the Future" #CreateYourTaste Event

 
Last week, my family and I got to attend a fun event in Clearwater, FL hosted by McDonald's of Tampa Bay to celebrate their new restaurant concept with the “Create Your Taste” menu. 
 
The Create Your Taste concept allows you to completely personalize your burger using in-restaurant kiosks.
 
Individual burgers are delivered to your table by McDonald’s crew members, allowing you to relax and enjoy the custom dining experience.
 
 
At the Kiosk, you can easily personalize your burger by choosing from a variety of toppings including American cheese, natural sharp white Cheddar and natural pepper jack cheese, buttered and toasted artisan roll and bakery style bun, Big Mac special sauce, spicy mayo, creamy garlic sauce, sweet BBQ sauce, preservative-free guacamole, jalapeños, grilled mushrooms, thick cut Applewood smoked bacon, crisp red onion, caramelized grilled onions, chili lime tortilla strips and crinkle cut pickles.
 
Each quarter-pound is made of 100 percent USDA beef patty.  It's presented open-faced in a nice metal basket so you can see all the great ingredients you selected.
 
I decided to try one of their already built burgers, the SoCal Burger, which has guacamole, chili lime tortilla strips and more.  It tasted great, and was very filling. 
 
I loved using the Kiosk, it was very easy to use.  I ordered all the kids' meals on it too, which made it very convenient when they were selecting each item in their Happy Meal. 
 
 
We got spoiled with a visit from Ronald McDonald's.  Ronald entertained everyone with juggling acts and trivia questions.  He even autographed the shirts the kids won.
 
 
This was a dream come true for my kids.  They got to visit behind the counter and make their own customized Sundae.
 
 
We had a great time, and I can't wait to see more kiosks appear in McDonald's around Tampa Bay. 
 
I want to give a huge Thank You to McDonald's Tampa Bay for having us over, the kids will remember this visit forever.
 
Disclosure: I was invited by McDonald's to participate in this free event, as well as receive free gifts.  However, all opinions 100% mine.
