Hello Kitty Nail Polish Giveaway

You Had me at hello kitty #giveaway

My first nail buddy from IG created her own company and sent me a bottle of You had me at hello kitty for review and one to giveaway. I was hoping to have this up last week but with running off last min on vacation to Nashville I didn't get everything I wanted to do done.

This giveaway runs from now until the 18th of this month.

Look out for the review coming in the next few days.

Too late to save her sister’s life, Stephanie Anders must now try to save her soul from  the vampire who has possessed her,  Branwyre, eighteenth vampire Lord of the  Aegean. With only the aid of the ghost of a pissed-off Buddhist monk with a potty mouth and the modern day Priestess of Isis, Stephanie must take on demons and other denizens of a world she knows nothing about if she is to succeed in banishing Branwyre.

But even more difficult than that, she must learn how to forgive her sister Estella for what she did to her if she is to have even half a chance of saving her soul.

Welcome to a world within our own – the Other World.

Extract from Isis, Vampires and Ghosts – Oh My! by Janis Hill

Chapter 5

Estella had the grace and timing to wake up just after I’d hauled her dead weight, literally, into

the chair and balanced it there long enough the grab the rope.

“By the Light of Isis, what do you think you’re doing?” Her tone was nearly petulant enough to

be the old Estella asking me, not the new peace-and-love one.

“Following your High Priestess’ instructions.” I grunted while tying her hands behind her back as

best I could, before continuing to wrap the rope around her and the chair.

“But why are you tying me to a chair now?” she asked, aghast to realise just how tight I had done

it. “Branwyre can’t take over until night time. We’ve got at least another hour.”

Ignoring her question for a moment, I snatched her right foot and tied it to the corresponding

chair leg. Then, ignoring the attempted kick, did the same to her left one.

“Roxanna clearly states in her instructions here to gather the required items, purify them and set it

all up, you included.” I waved the note at her before continuing to wrap her legs, backside and chair in the

rope. Yeah, I’d gotten a decent amount. Who says two for one sales are a waste of time? “Nowhere in her

instructions does it say we should stop for coffee and a chat. When I’ve got as much of it ready as I can

before moonrise, I can actually have a rest. You know, something even we non-undead need to do from

time to time.”

She went to protest, I even paused to watch the show I felt she was about to perform, but other

than gaping a few times like a stunned fish, she stayed quiet. Wow, this Light of Isis was amazing if it

could prevent the Queen of Whinge from speaking.

“Fine then,” she finally managed, a slight sulky tone to her voice. “But how am I meant to eat

dinner?”

I sighed; I hadn’t honestly thought of that, going along the lines that she was dead. Yes she was

an animated corpse right now, but dead was dead. You shouldn’t have to provide meals for them.

“Nowhere in my instructions does it say I have to feed you.” I muttered. Then feeling I should

relent a little as she’d found it within herself to be nicer. “But how about I order pizza, and you eat it cold

later. Surely even the Light of Isis can’t have cured you of your cold pizza habits.”

She sighed, but said no more for a moment. Didn’t even pout, which surprised me even more than

the silence.

“I do wish you’d be more respectful of Isis and her purifying Light,” is all she eventually said as I

was adding a few more knots to the back of the chair.

“Uh-huh.” I was more interested in making sure I’d done a good job, than listen to a lecture on

appropriate religious respect. Especially from someone who in the past hadn’t held any respect for anyone

or anything.

“And no dinner is fine; I don’t seem to have the need to eat that often anymore.” She continued,

trying to watch me over her shoulder. “I won’t have you dissing cold pizza though.”

“Sure!” I said, standing back and wiping sweat from my brow and then my hands on my dress.

I remembered I was still in one of my best ‘sombre but not kinky’ little black dresses, not having had a

chance to change. So Roxanna’s wodge of cash was buying me a few clothes tomorrow, too. Why not!

If I wasn’t allowed to go home until this was all over, she owed me at least a pair of jeans and clean

underwear. I checked the instructions again. Okay, so all items purified, sister roped tightly into chair.

Salt time! Boy I hoped the motel’s maid service wouldn’t be too pissed at me, or at least wouldn’t notice

until after we’d left.

Janis grew up in and around Darwin, Australia, and its rural surrounds. As a child, she spent a lot of time around 'science geeks' at the Darwin University, where her father was a lecturer for many years. It took her a long time to realize that not everyone got to grow up like that or could relate to all the Science Labs scenes in the old Dr Who.

Janis now lives in the Adelaide Hills with her husband and 3 children, lovingly referred to as the ‘Demonic Hordes’. She is a semi-retired ICT Support Officer who, when not writing, takes pride in her work as a Haus Frau while dabbling in the art of translating century old cookery books into modern recipes to experiment on her family with.

Ava Michaels is gifted, powerful, and — whether she likes it or not — part of a plot to take over the world.

It’s only been a few months since Ava Michaels discovered she has ties to an ancient people living in the shadows of the human world, despite their superior gifts and abilities. A select few don’t like hiding, however, and think it’s time to take control. 

Now Ava’s caught up in a conspiracy in the works before she was even born. In fact, her birth was an integral part of the plan. She’s one of the Twelve, the most powerful Race ever created, and they were created for a purpose.

Turns out, Ava doesn’t like being told what to do.

All she wants is to start a new life with her boyfriend, Caleb Foster, but before they can even think about that, they must join forces with former enemies, seek out some powerful new friends, and figure out what exactly the Twelve, and their power-hungry leader, are up to.

Then, they have to find a way to stop them.


T.M. Franklin started out her career writing non-fiction in a television newsroom. An Emmy-Award winning Seattle TV news producer, Franklin is the author of the award-winning YA adventure, MORE, and its sequel The Guardians. In addition, Franklin penned the Amazon best-selling short stories A Piece of Cake and Window. Her new YA romance,How to Get Ainsley Bishop to Fall in Love with You, is Franklin’s first love story without a paranormal element, although she believes love is the best kind of magic.

TWELVE, the final installment in the MORE Trilogy will be released October 9, 2014

Cassandra's Review-  The product has what my kids call a major cool factor.  I enjoy learning about new techie gadgets and can not believe how advanced we are from the good old fashion web TV I used to have growing up.  Can you imagine connecting all 4 devices to one HUB allowing for faster data transfer. I think my older children enjoy this the most.  Some people get turned off by a product when they see it was made in china, but this is of great quality and did not damage or short my devices and works really well.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
