A GIVEAWAY Sci-Fi Fans will LOVE “Apollo 18” DVD

You should know that while I like to look pretty, I own a million colors of nail polish and hair pins, I wear a sparkly scarf, etc. I am still a complete nerd. I enjoy Comic Con and Sci-Fi shows immensely. In addition, I also enjoy scary movies, thrillers, elements of suspense that have me gripping the sides of the sofa while I’m clenching my teeth and waiting for the monster to jump out from behind the curtain in a horror flick. Thanks to everything just mentioned I am uber excited about the upcoming release of Apollo 18 which has all of those components.

Anchor Bay Entertainment and Dimension Films announced earlier this month that the Blu-ray™ and DVD release of the “terrifying” (Fred Topel, CraveOnline.com) and “chilling” (Hunter Daniels, Collider.com) sci-fi thriller, APOLLO 18.  In the same vein as such blockbusters as The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, the film unearths alleged lost Department of Defense footage to construct a riveting story of the events that unfolded during this covert mission to the moon.  Full of tension and suspense, APOLLO 18 blasts into stores on December 27, 2011 with an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and $29.98 for the DVD. (P.S. I am so giddy we are hosting a giveaway DVD for the scrink.com readers!)

Synopsis of the movie: Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 7, 1972, was the last manned mission to the moon.  But two years later, in December of 1974, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense.  What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission.  While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.

The APOLLO 18 Blu-ray™ and DVD bonus features include an audio commentary with director Gonzalo López-Gallego and editor Patrick Lussier, deleted and alternate scenes, alternate endings, among other bonus features to be confirmed.

Barenaked Ladies do Snack Time – Giveaway!!!

Alright, I know, this isn’t their new album, but it is an awesome album from the Barenaked Ladies and it has 24 original children’s songs which they wrote, recorded and performed. And we at scrink.com have a copy for giveaway! This would be such a fantastic album to win for you or a young family member. You could wrap it up and use this as a stocking stuffer or give it for a Secret Santa gift and I promise it will be loved!

The album, Snack Time, is from 2008 and when it was released we immediately decided to get a copy and listen. I for one am a huge Barenaked Ladies fan and was so happy to be able to share my love of their music with my boys.

A companion book was written with artwork by multi-instrumentalist Kevin Hearn, who also contributed artwork for the album. It is the final Barenaked Ladies album to include Steven Page, who departed the band on February 25, 2009.

Snacktime! reached #10 on Canadian charts and peaked at #61 on the Billboard 200. It also won a Juno Award in 2008 in the Best Children’s Album category.

Shy of Perfect jewelry giveaway!!!

Time for something fun on Scrink. We’re hosting a giveaway thanks to the creative brain of Sara from Shy of Perfect. She has her own site and Etsy shop where she write and creates beautiful jewelry pieces. Thanks to a generous offer, she is allowing me to host a giveaway of one of her necklace/earring sets.

All you need to do to be able to enter is head on over to her Etsy shop and let me know in the comments what your favorite jewelry set is from her items. I really like the set you see pictured here, but you can pick anything! Who wouldn’t want to win a new jewelry set to wear during any upcoming holiday parties or even just to wear to work to feel a little extra dolled up?

I was lucky enough to win a gorgeous set from Shy of Perfect over the summer. I wear the earrings all the time, they are white drop earrings and they make me feel extra girly when I need to look a bit more sophisticated for a meeting. And then when I know I’m going out to dinner I add the necklace. I’d wear it more often, but my youngest (Finn, age 2) likes to pull on necklaces.

Sara is such a sweetheart and she is always adding new materials and designs to her shop. She says she creates, “Modern designs for both kids and moms. These pieces are meant to be affordable, modern, and easy to wear.” Creating jewelry is a “a very fun and therapuetic hobby” for her.

If you’d like to read her blog you can check it out here. Recently she wrote about how you can recycle a crib into a desk or workbench which is a fantastic idea for those of us who have upgraded our kids to a toddler or twin bed and we can’t give our “slide rail” beds to Good Will because they have been “out lawed.” Sara’s “Shy of Perfect” blog is simply full of great ideas!

Rules of the Giveaway: – There are five ways to enter this giveaway! It ends on September 24, 2011 at noon EST. The winner will be chosen by random from the comments using random.org.

1. Leave a comment with your favorite piece of jewelry from the Shy of Perfect Etsy Shop – choose a set from the sales section so you can win it!

2. For an extra entry “favorite” the Etsy shop, this means you need to be an Etsy user. Make sure you leave a separate comment to let me know you did this.

3. Like Shy of Perfect on Facebook. Make sure you leave a separate comment to let me know you did this.

4. Like “Scrink” on Facebook. Make sure you leave a separate comment to let me know you did this.

The Collection aka iPad appazine

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ogilvy. All opinions are 100% mine.

The Collection Image App It’s awesomeness really, when you can wake up the iPad, open one app and get refreshed and updated on all the current news, internationally, all at once.

Consider the topics you find most interesting, for me recently they have been political in terms of what is happening in the Middle East, but many of my readers have been fascinated about The Royal Wedding. Well here in the US we had to wake up at the crack of dawn to watch the wedding. But if I had grabbed the iPad and opened the collection I would have gotten every update I needed straight away before the coffee even brewed.

And thankfully The Collection presents their news with videos, panoramic photos, #D animations, etc. so it’s not like you’d be looking at a regular magazine or newspaper, it would be far more like holding a television in the palm of your hands.

The Collection, or appazine as some call it, is definitely an iPad app worth trying and you can grab it from Apple obviously at their App Store. Or if you don’t yet own an iPad you can also enter to WIN AN iPAD of YOUR VERY OWN! 

To enter you must have a Twitter account (because only entries make through Twitter will count) and tweet the following message. “Stay up-to-date with current events by using #thecollection iPad App tweet to enter

The contest ends on May 15, 2011.

Oh Freschetta take me away | Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FRESCHETTA® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Friday night is done and two slices of left over pizza are in the fridge.

If you are like my family there are nights when cooking is out of the question. Last night after getting the boys home from karate practice it was cold and getting late. The traffic had been bad because this is a holiday weekend, plus the weather is rainy which always makes people drive crazy.

The best thing to come home to on nights like that is a full service cook and maid, but since we don’t live in Beverly Hills and I don’t make six figures at least I can be inspired by Freschetta. hehe.

Go with me here and simply imagine it…

Turn on your oven, pop in a slice of Freschetta’s Classic Bruschetta Pizza and as it warms you can small the garlic pesto sauce mingling with a delicious blend of provolone, Asiago and Parmesan cheese. Oh. My. Italiano! Why do you ever leave home? You can have the most delectable, mouth watering pizza at home within 15 minutes and my guess is there probably won’t be any left over in the fridge after.

Trust me. Amazing.

And there are other equally yummy flavors: FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™ Hawaiian Style Pizza, Farmers Market Veggie Pizza, Harvest Supreme Pizza, Southern BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza, Rustic Pepperoni Pomodoro Pizza, Classic Bruschetta Pizza, Tuscan Farmhouse Pizza* and Chicken Bianco Pizza* (*Limited edition varieties.)

I mean come on! Just hearing those flavor names is enough to make your stomach scream out “FEED ME!” You can check out @FreschettaSI and “Like” their Facebook page to get coupons, plus you will be the first to hear about special offers in a green way without cluttering your counter space with fliers.

And… you so must have the chance to try one of Freschett’a Simply Inspired pizza flavors that is why we are hosting a giveaway!

What you will win! 1 full value coupon for a FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™ pizza & Freschetta Square Bamboo cheese tray/cutting board!
