Giveaway: Drink Chia Ends 8/9

I haven't tried Drink Chia, but having worked in a vitamin store I do understand the benefits of Omega-3. So I'd be interested in trying this. Plus there's some swag for you too :-) Disclaimer: Just Jennifer Talking has not tried this product, the review below does not represent my opinion. Also this review is in no way intended to diagnose or treat any medical conditions. Before trying this product please speak with a healthcare professional.

Good Luck :-)

This Giveaway is done by SaraLee's Deals Steals & Giveaways
We are guided by the relentless focus to inspire people to be engaged in their health, try new things, seek adventure, and be active in their communities.
Everything begins with our “Shake it Baby” concept. It implies two things:
1. To shake the drink up, and
2. To get out and make things happen, to do something productive and meaningful, to make a difference.
We don’t want the seeds to settle in the bottle…settling implies going nowhere, being complacent. So…
Be active, be mindful of your health, your family, and the world around you!
I want to say my husband was very surprised over the Drink Chia. At fist my husband crinkled his nose up and was like oh boy this isn't going to taste good but as soon as he took a sip he smiled and was said "Wow this is really good." My husband drank the bottle before work and called me on his first break saying that he felt really good and liked the way the Chia drink made him feel. On the forth day of drinking Chia he was in a better mood at work and he felt a little more energized in the morning. Now this week he is grumpy and you can tell so I went and ordered more for him. I wish they sold this in health stores buy me.
Now for the giveaway: One lucky person will win a Drink Chia Prize pack ( 1 of bottle of each flavor & a T-shirt). This is open to US & World Wide and ends 8/09/12 @ 11:59 pm est. To enter, simply do the tasks on the Rafflecopter widget below and you're set to have a chance to win!

Review: The Woman in Black

About the Movie

Rated: PG-13
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe & Ciarán Hinds
Running Time: 95 minuets

Dispatched by his boss to an isolated seaside village to tie up a recently deceased client's affairs, a young London lawyer finds himself in a community grappling with dark secrets -- and a haunting presence with a sinister agenda.

My Review

Rating: 4 stars

My fear with this one is that Daniel Radcliffe wouldn't be able to convince me he wasn't Harry Potter. How wrong I was! The character he plays is such a departure from Harry Potter that I didn't even think about it after the first 10 minuets or so. I also have to say that Mr. Radcliffe is such a great actor. I never really paid much attention to the acting in Harry Potter - that wasn't what I watched those movies for anyway... But I think Radcliffe has really proven that he's a great actor with this one.

This is one of the better "horror" movies that I've seen in a while. It used sound and light to create suspense, while the story was being built up. There were quite a few "jumpy" moments, which even though I was expecting them got me. My dog even woke up with a start twice.

The story was pretty good. A young man must go to a village where he's unwelcome and while there he uncovers their secret. As he's putting the pieces of the puzzle together children in the village start dying. The young lawyer is trying to figure how all this connects together while he accepts the hospitality of one of the wealthy families in the village. The wife appears to be a bit crazy, but she does help put some fire into plot.

The only reason this did not receive a 5 star rating was the ending. It wasn't a horrible ending, but I was expecting something different. After the puzzle is "figured out" I thought that would be the end. But the ending is much more sinister than I would have imagined.

I would have to say despite the PG-13 rating that it shouldn't be watched by younger kids. I think I would have to say 15 or 16 rather than 13 as the appropriate age limit. There's some graphic scenes, although they aren't necessarily violent they are disturbing none the less. There's not much in the way of strong language, I honestly don't remember any but it could have just slipped my mind.

If you are interested in purchasing The Woman in Black please check it out in my Amazon Store.
