Dolphin Island Movie Review and Giveaway

Enter to win a digital code for the movie Dolphin Island. #sponsored #DolphinIslandMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork

Dolphin Island is a family friendly movie about a girl‚Äôs relationship with her grandparents and their fight for her custody since her parents have passed. She lives at the dolphin sanctuary with her paternal grandfather on an island that her parents founded. 

There are beautiful views of the island and the ocean. Dolphin interactions appear throughout the movie. While these actions are trained tricks, they fit into the story line well. The role of Mitzy the dolphin is played by two open ocean water dolphins.

A few exceptional acting roles stand out by Peter Woodward, playing her grandfather , and Dionne Lea, playing the role of the social worker.

Dolphin Island is the winner of the Best Movie Fan Favorite, Best Actor Teen Fan Favorite, Best Actress Teen Fan Favorite, Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Producer, Best Writer, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Actor Supporting, Best Actress Supporting, Best Actor Teen, Best Actress Teen, Best Cinematography, Best Soundtrack, Best Villain, Best Villainess, Best Animal Team, and Best Movie Poster at the 2021 Christian Film Festival.

Hot Cocoa Giveaway

Enter to win Crave hot cocoa

It is the perfect time of year for hot cocoa and Crave has you covered no matter what flavor you desire. Did you know Crave has a variety pack of hot cocoa k-cups? All 6 different hot chocolate flavors from Crave Hot Chocolate are less than 100 calories each. You can choose from mint Chocolate, Mexican chocolate, white chocolate, Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and salted Caramel. I have tried them all and can say that depending upon your mood and taste, you can’t go wrong with any one of them.¬†

I was a bit leery of the Mexican chocolate thinking it would be too spicy for my taste, but it wasn’t. They added the spice of red chilies and cinnamon but for someone that doesn’t like too much spice or heat, I’d say it just added a bit more heat and a very small kick, more of a bump if you will.

For a while my favorite flavor was milk chocolate and it still is a go to flavor for me. But I have broadened my palette with the six different flavors offered and most mornings I can reach into the box and just grab a k-cup and go with that flavor. Hot cocoa is my choice of a morning hot drink this winter. I also like coffee and tea but there is something about a creamy hot mug of cocoa in the morning that is special.

I was provided a box of Crave Variety Hot Cocoa to try in order to write this post, and I was given the opportunity to offer one box as a giveaway as well.

New Cookbooks Available

Enter to win a new cookbook with recipes that only take 30 minutes from frozen.

Simon & Schuster has released three new cookbooks. I was sent the 30 Minute Cooking From Frozen book. I requested to review this title because it spoke to me. Not so much because I am busy but more so because I am lazy! What you will find in this cookbook are recipes that are far from basic or simple looking results. Thumbing through the book I think I saw two out of one hundred recipes I actually had made before. I love that there is no pre-thawing required.

Giveaway :: Hot Cocoa

Enter to win milk chocolate hot cocoa k-cups from Crave.

I woke up this morning to cooler weather and I was craving hot chocolate. Thankfully I had just received a pack of k-cups from Crave to review. So I popped one in my coffee maker and had a steaming cup of milk chocolate in a few moments, and it was so comforting. Crave offers a variety of different flavors.

Crave hot cocoa comes in dark chocolate, mexican spice cocoa, milk chocolate, mint chocolate, salted caramel, and white chocolate. I don’t know about you but I had a hard time choosing which flavor to select, I guess that is why they also make a variety pack!

Crave Hot Chocolate PODS are recyclable, kosher certified, and compatible with Keurig K-Cup brewers, including 2.0. They are available on Amazon. (affiliate link)
