Palmolive soft touch review

I was the lucky duck that qualified for a Palmolive Soft touch liquid dish soap giveaway through Influenster

This is my first review through this program, so I was very excited to be selected and the excitement sure grew when I found this pretty box in my mail box!
 The inside was even more exciting as I received not one, but TWO bottles of dish soap and lots of coupons!

 I had to rush to the sink and try the soap! I guess it's a good thing that dirty dishes never cease to exist in my house.

The first thing a girl do near anything soap-like? Sniff, of course! 
So I opened the bottles and take a good whiff.......ahhhhh! 
I decided to wash my dishes with the pink one, the small is divine! 

I must confess that I'm a little of a cheapo when it comes to household cleaners, so when I need them I usually go for a the cheapest store brand just to realize that it makes a lot of bubbles but it's not so effective in cleaning, it leaves dirt behind or worse, a film on my dishes, or doesn't smell that great after all. 
So I pledge to get a better brand when I use up the bottle, but then I found myself back to the store, comparing prices and choosing the cheap stuff again :( 

With the Palmolive, I was very impressed! While it clearly bubbles up in the water, it's not excessive. It takes out dirt and stains from my dishes quickly and effectively and it is really gentle on my hands. 

I'm telling you, the pink bottle smells good enough to want to bathe in it!!!

I've learned my lesson and truly believe that you get what you pay for, so as soon as I'm done with this bottle, the Palmolive soft touch will go on my next grocery list also thanks to the coupons!

Should I be a good girl and share or just keep everything for myself??? LOL

The Phantom Patrol: Review and giveway

I'm having the chance to read and review another book published by Galaxy Press , just like a did for The Iron Duke (HERE) and Dead Men Kill (HERE).
In my previous post, I also talked about the author, L.Ron Hubbard and briefly explained about gold Age pulp fictions.
But if you need to refresh your memory, here an informative video for you.
 Synopses of The Phantom Patrol: (from book flap)
On the trail of dope runners on the high seas, Coast Guard CPO Johnny Trescott receives an SOS from a transport plan that's crashed and sinking. With lives at stake, Johnny must cut off his pursuit and rescue the downed plane.
Unfortunately, the dope-smuggling pirate he's chasing hears the same alarm, and greets Johnny and his crew at the crash scene with something far more than they bargained for.

My review: 
I fell yet inlove with another of L.Ron Hubbard novel. As the previous ones I reviewed, there is everything is these pages: romance, thriller, action and justice with an happy ending. As the other books, I drink it up in one afternoon unable to put it down.
This one impressed me a little more about the descriptions of the surroundings as the story takes place on boats on the open sea and with the description on the storm on the very first chapter I could swear I was on the same boat with the characters getting sea-sick. A writer able to do that, needs my respects and L.Ron Hubbard certainly earned mine.
The characters are very credible and well described too.
You can't help but feel pure admiration for Johnny Trescott, for his strength and his high moral in doing what's right no matter what it might cost him. And through him, you literally can feel in your heart the same feeling he shares for Alicia, the unspoken but undoubted trust and respect they have for each other.
But what will a hero be without his loyal side kick, Heinie? His character is very pleasant, no pathetic as other side kicks in the other books I've read. He has a good heart and a good brain and, mostly importantly, helpful hands.
The villain of the story is pure evil which leaves very little to mystery and imagination, but it's still totally believable. And as every evil, he has no brain and no loyal friends, just scumbags submitted my fear.
I was skeptical of this book as I don't know much about boats or fishermen, that's why I left it for last as among all the titles it was the one that grabbed my attention the least, but I was pleasantly surprised!

The giveaway:  {The phantom patrol book and Audio set}

Proud of saying that I was the lucky winner of a giveaway sponsored by Harman and hosted on the blog of lovely Kayla of The Eclectic Element.

I was very intrigued by the slick black box that showed up at my door step and honestly I completely forgot that this prize was coming.

Inside I found a lovely burlap bag full of pellets.....oh how do I wish I didn't leave in hot Florida right now!!! This pellets are not only high efficiency, but also environmental friendly! 
Winter, can't come soon enough!! And I will make sure to share the pellets with friends and family.

But the real kicker was the awesome journal and pen I received in the box! They are made by completely renewable material in a process that is good for the enviroment.

What can I say? I'm a romantic geek! Maybe I should write a book.......
