Power Gig: Rise of the Six String Bundle Review


Who didn't want to be a rock star when they were a kid? Power Gig: Rise of the Rock Star is first and only band video game with a real guitar as a controller! No guitar experience necessary!

The premise of the game is that the world of Ohm is in the hands of an evil empire. Music is banned and rockers are in trouble. Only you can save the world and Rock n Roll. The song list is great. It includes songs from Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews band, John Mayer, Kid Rock, Smashing Pumpkins, Snow Patrol, and more. You can check out the song list
here.

The Power Gig: Rise of the Six String bundle is available for the XBox and Playstation 3. The game bundle comes with :

• Power Gig: Rise of the SixString videogame.

• Wireless SixString Guitar Controller/Electric Guitar. Plug into any standard amp to jam with your friends when not playing the game.

• Includes guitar strap.

• Includes extra guitar strings & picks.

More product features:
• Bonus: Learn Guitar!
Power Gig can help teach basic guitar skills including how to properly press down on a string, hold a pick, and strum. In addition, you can turn on an optional chording mode that will help teach players actual guitar power chords in the songs they are playing.

• Music Makes You Smarter?
Did you know that playing music develops concentration and memory and sharpens hand-eye coordination? And according to NAMM, studies show that music enhances intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development.

• Available at Major Retailers
You can find Power Gig at major retailers like Walmart, Target, Best Buy, GameStop, ToysRUs, BJ’s, QVC, and Amazon.

• One-Stop Shopping
You can buy everything you need in one box! The band kit comes with the game and the SixString guitar controller so you can start playing right away.

• Worry-Free Fun
In a marketplace of violent video games, rest assured that Power Gig’s world of Ohm is a peaceful zone. The ESRB gave the game a T (Teen) rating, listing mild lyrics and mild suggestive themes.

My Thoughts:
I love that the game uses a real guitar. You can learn to play the guitar while playing the game. I also really liked the songs that were included for the game!

Give an Entertainment Gift : Roku Review


Do you have someone on your Christmas list who is hard to buy for? Or do you know someone who loves to watch movies and TV episodes? Then consider giving a Roku as a gift this year.


Have you heard of
Roku? Roku is a small box that makes it easy to download TV shows and movies to your TV. With Roku, you can watch Netflix, Amazon on Demand, Pandora, and Hulu Plus on your TV. Did you know that some Amazon on Demand shows are free?


I was super excited to try out the Roku. It is really small so it doesn't take up much room. We subscribe to Netflix so I knew that would be the first feature that I would want to try out. Easy to set up once I found the correct spot on my TV. Seriously who puts the connections on the side of the TV? Once plugged in , it literally took less than 5 minutes to get the Netflix account to sync to the Roku and to start watching a show.

It was great to be able to watch Netflix instant shows on our larger TV. We have watched through our Wii but the Wii is connected to our smaller TV in the basement. Now some people can watch Netflix TV while other people can play the Wii.

The Roku prices range from $59.99 to $99.99 . The model that I tested was the Roku HD which retails for $59.99 . The more expensive models feature 1080p HD video quality and more extended-range wireless. The basic model does have wireless capability or you can hook it up to your internet directly.

So is worth the money? Definitely!! If you have a Netflix subscription then this is a no brainer. You will get so much more out of your subscription. The same thing goes if you have a Hulu Plus membership. If you don't have Hulu Plus or Netflix, then you can still watch some free TV shows from Amazon and some of the other channels. Or you can pay to watch a movie through Amazon and skip the trip to the video store.


** I recieved a Roku HD player from Roku to use for this review. No other compensation was given. The opinions are my own.**

Save Your Baby's Cord Blood With Cryo-Cell

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of CryoCell International. All opinions are 100% mine.

Medical research has come a long ways. Today parents have the wonderful opportunity to save their newborn baby's umbilical cord blood. Right now, umbilical cord blood stem cells are known to treat over 75 diseases, and have been used in over 12,000 transplants worldwide. Who knows what new miracle drug or treatment might be available in the future?

I wish that I could have saved my children's cord blood. Unfortunately at that time, it was not available in my area. It would be heart breaking to know that you could have helped your child by saving their cord blood but chose not to do so.

Who is a leader in cord blood banking? Cryo-Cell is the industry's family cord bank leader. They have more quality accreditation's than any private cord blood bank. Cyro-Cell has been in the umbilical cord blood preservation business since 1992.

Cryo-Cell has one of the cheaper prices in the cord bank industry while not sacrificing quality. Unlike some other cord blood banks, they are FDA Registered, cGMP-/cGTP2-compliant, AABB accredited, and ISO 9001:2008 certified. In addition, they have partnered with UPromise so you receive some money back towards your child's education.

I love to pinch my pennies! But sometimes it is worth paying money for special services. I believe that every family should have this service. I think of it like a life insurance policy. You hope that you never have to collect but you are thankful that you have it - just in case.

Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method Book Review


Book Title: Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method: The Weight-Loss Kick-Start that Makes Perfection Possible

Format: Hardcover
Publish Date: 9/20/2010
ISBN: 9780446562041


From the book cover: Did you know muscles get bored, just like people do? And did you also know that there's a 9 out of 10 chance that you're working the wrong muscles when you exercise? With Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method you don't have to worry - her unique workout and eating plan will help you drop the weight and shrink your body in no time.

What Did I think?
It is no secret to anyone that I am trying to lose weight. Ugh, the pounds don't seem to want to come off but they came on so easily! I was very excited to review Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method.

Fitness books are sometimes hard for me to follow but this one is laid out very nicely. The book has a very good step by step process for the exercises. The book also comes with a DVD which I have not tried yet. Tracy is very motivating in the book. After reading the first chapters, I was ready to dive into the exercises. Make no mistake, the exercises are hard and tiring. I am hoping to stick with them.

My favorite quote from the book is "Sweat is the only fairy dust". Many times we sit around hoping for change. We have to take action for change to happen. Change is hard, exercising is hard but it is worth it in the long run.

Tracy does include a 25 day meal plan and recipes in the book. I found the meal plan to be unrealistic for a normal family. It seemed to full of things that would not work for my family. Also it did not seem like a lot of food for a person to eat. In addition for the first 25 days, there are no substitutions in the meal plan.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. I loved the motivation and I think that the exercises are good. This book has the potential to change your life if you can stick the plan.

**Thanks to Hatchette Book Group for the chance to review this book. No other compensation was given.**
