Valentine’s Day Gift Idea: Name a Star Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

If you are looking for an unique gift for Valentine’s Day, here is one idea for you.  You could have a star named after the one you love!

I decided to do this for my hubby for our anniversary that’s coming up.  It was really easy to do too.

1.  You will need to go to http://nameastar.thesuperartlab.com/
2. Click on the right hand side where it says buy now.
3. Scroll down that page until you find the graphic that says “buy now”.
4. Enter your info, recipient’s name, and message.
5. Once you make your payment, you should receive your certificate via email within 48 hours.

Once you receive your email with your certificate, it can get a little tricky.
1.  You have to go to http://nameastar.thesuperartlab.com/find-star/
2.  Scroll down until you see this button:

3.  Once you click on that, you will be taken to DropBox (which is not bad to have BTW), where you can download the file to find your star.  
  • I was kind of leery of this at first.  I wasn’t sure about it since it was taking me to another site to download a file (even though I trust dropbox, anything could have been put into there).  So I had my hubby check it out (he is a Certified Linux Administrator).  He says that it is fine, but remind everyone to make sure you trust sites that you are downloading from, and to have a GOOD Anti Virus that is up to date, installed, and running. 
4.  If Google Earth is installed correctly all you have to do is double click to open the file. When Google Earth opens it prompts you to switch to sky mode


5.Then you go through the list of stars and double click on it and it takes you to it.
You can see our star is pinned with my husband’s name and the message I had for him over to the left.  
I am really pleased with how everything looks, and at $12.99, I think it is a great gift for anyone who loves to look at the stars.  
The great people over at Name A Star are also letting me give one to a very lucky reader.  To enter to win, use the Giveaway Tools widget below.  You can enter anytime until 2/12/2014 at 11:59pm.

Paddy O’Shea’s Golf Card Game Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Paddy O'Shea Golf Game

If you are looking for a fun game to play with your kids or at a party for St. Paddy’s Day you should really check out the golf card game by Paddy O’Shea.

Paddy O’Shea’s Golf Card Game™ is a new family card game based on the popular version of the card game “Golf.”  It is a fun game that golfers, card players and people who play board games find entertaining and exciting.  The game is for 2 to 6 players ages 10 and up.  It is easy to learn!

It was really easy, the way my sister and I played.  (We kind of ignored some rules since it was my first time playing).

A few base rules. Number cards are worth face value, and face cards are worth 10 points. The game also has -5, -2, and 0 point cards, those are clearly marked with fun graphics.

Paddy O'Shea Golf Game

First we laid our cards face down in 3 rolls of 3 (so 9 cards in total). Next we picked two random cards in our 9 cards and turned them face up.

Paddy O'Shea Golf Game

If you get three cards in a roll that are the same no matter their value, they will equal 0.

Here are the official rules.

Like I said before, my sister and I had a ton of fun, and Goose had fun too because she got to “play”.  Here are our results:

Paddy O'Shea Golf Game

I won with 15!  Whoo Hoo!

You can purchase Paddy O’Shea’s golf game on their website.  It costs $9.95 +shipping.  They currently only take PayPal though.  I hope in the future they can take Amazon Payments (which I would feel better with).

If you would like to try your luck, you can enter to win your very own Paddy O’Shea’s Golf Game.

Vinyl Disorder Finger Nail Art Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I have found a great way to dress up plain boring nails!  It’s called Finger Nail Art by Vinyl Disorder.  And it’s super simple to apply.  First, you want to make sure you have freshly painted nail or clean unpainted nail.  Take one of the small decals off the sheet, and grasp between your pointer finger and thump.  Then you just have to apply it to where ever you want on your nail.  That simple.  And that is how I did my nails above.

There is one suggestion I have to make.  If you want the decals to last longer, apply a top coat of clear of transparent nail polish on top of the decal.  I put the ones above on last night, and they were driving me nuts by this morning.  They would get caught in my hair and on my clothes, and were about to come off.  I couldn’t find any clear nail polish, but I did find some pearlizing top coat, and I think it turned out really well.

If you are interested in Vinyl Disorder’s Finger Nail Art, you can check it out on their website: http://www.vinyldisorder.com/finger-nail-art.html .  You can also purchase them there.  They have all sorts of decals you can choose from.  I got the hearts and starts, and am very happy with them.
