Four Great CDs Review and Bundle Pack Giveaway

I received complimentary copies of the following CD's from Mile High Productions.

Joseph Eid
Americana-Folk Singer/Songwriter Joseph Eid has announced the recent release of his first full studio album, Human. Recommended if you like the Avett Brothers and Ray Lamontagne, Eid has been garnering considerable buzz with his music, recently being named as one of the 100 Hottest Live Unsigned Artists of 2012 and 2013 by Music Connection Magazine.

The album’s title track "Human", displays the pastoral beauty, delicate guitar work, and intricate but relatable lyrics that have become Eid’s trademark. “Human” seamlessly blends sharp, melodic pop lyricism with traditional folk sensibilities evoking folk troubadours both past and present.

The album’s first single “Ready Now”, is propelled by a driving rhythm section , lush instrumentation and an instantly unforgettable hook. “Ready Now,” has surpassed over 20,000 views on YouTube and is the depiction of an animated version of Eid. The song tells a love story in which the man is confused about his beloved one. The storyline is lively presented by Eid’s gentle and narrative voice in the verse parts, and the passionate vocal harmony in the chorus increased the whole song’s intensity and meaning. The use of varied orchestra instruments also added a layer of dramatic effects to the song, giving it a more complicated and intriguing sensation.

Originally born in Liberia to Lebanese parents, Joseph Eid grew up in the suburbs of New York.  He was raised in a strict and traditional home where the arts were only supported as a hobby and never as a career.  During his college years, Eid studied psychology and pre-med but all the while, he was always dreaming about a potential career in music.  After his first semester at med school, the dream got too big to hold and Joseph made the bold choice of dropping out and moving to New York City to pursue music and follow his dream.  He joined a band, picked up a guitar, and the songs poured out like rain.  His journey led him to Los Angeles in 2007 where he started playing regularly at open mikes and showcases.  Shortly after, he began working with world-renowned guitarist/songwriter David Lamar, honing his songwriting at weekly showcases at the Stone Bar, leading the prolific singer/songwriter to write over 30 new songs as well as record his debut EP Cardiac Output.

Known as a dynamic solo performer, Joseph Eid has brought his cathartic one-man live show to many of Los Angeles’ premier music venues, including stints at Room 5 and El Cid.  He has held residencies at the following Hollywood venues:  The Stone Bar, Crane’s Hollywood Tavern, Room 5, and Bar Lubitsch.

Eid recently released a music video of “Something Real,” which is based on a personal experience that also happens to be universal with communication via technology and social media. A visually simple yet emotionally complex music video, “Something Real,” is meant as a commentary on our constant need to be plugged in and how this has changed the way we communicate as well as taken away the value and the weight of words and human connection.  This idea is demonstrated in the video as Eid sings to and tries to connect with lifeless, robotic people. The twist at the end of the video illustrates that no one is immune to the digital disease — including Eid.

Another piece of exciting news for the folk and country lovers is that Eid’s going to release a brand new video for the single “Hit me up” from the album “Human”. This particular song maintained his emotional and well-polished singing and song writing style, and at the same time experimented with country style guitar fill-ins. Every Eid’s video released so far, from the animated himself in ‘Ready now’ to the robotic crowd in ‘Something Real’, had shown an interesting, real-life related story and life lesson. This coming video of his would definitely be worth waiting for.

Cassandra's Review - With a voice that will keep you stimulated. Joseph's music is upbeat and classy. I really enjoyed listening to this CD.

Roxanna - Here With Me
The highly anticipated music video for Roxanna’s hit single, “Here With Me” is available now. The sultry love ballad is a true story stemming from her parents’ unceasing love and the prequel to her breakout single, “Unforgotten.” The song features Grammy award winning trumpeter, Chris Botti, and the video will star Soap heartthrob, James Scott as the leading man. This is the 2nd single off of Roxanna’s debut album, Exotica, a soulful testimony to the trials and tribulations of love, forgiveness, and healing.

“Here With Me,” is a narration of Roxanna’s parents’ relationship, in addition to her own experiences with falling in love. When they first met, Roxanna’s father presented her mother with rose and a beautiful poetry book. When her mother passed away, Roxanna inherited the poetry book and the first bookmarked page she opened was the song “Here With Me.” With a few alterations and the help of Chris Botti, this beautiful creation was born. Roxanna is thrilled to be sharing this meaningful project with the world, “I knew I wanted something classy and romantic and James Scott was the perfect fit. We then brought in director, Samuel Gonzales Jr. who was really able to bring life to my vision.”

“Here With Me” is releasing on the heels of her wildly successful 90 minute Public Television special, ROXANNA: EXOTICA LIVE, which premiered Saturday, November 15th in the Detroit metro area, Central and Western Canada. The segment was taped at the Cathedral-like venue, Vibiana, in Los Angeles and guest stars Jon Secada.

Her hope for people who watch the video is that they understand it is a narration of honest, true love.

About Roxanna:

From an early age, Iranian-born singer/songwriter Roxanna knew that music was a far-reaching instrument of strength and hope. Originally turning to music as an escape from childhood-strife, Roxanna’s ultimate musical journey was fueled by a quest for serenity, hope for healing, and overcoming love’s deepest heartbreaks.

Settling in Toronto in the 1980s, Roxanna enrolled at Winston Churchill Collegiate where the budding star’s passion for music deepened as she focused on music classes and joined choir. Following undergraduate school, Roxanna’s philanthropic personality led her to attend nursing school at Seneca College where she earned her RN degree.

Over the course of her nursing career, Roxanna’s life changing experiences with her patients, along with her unwavering passion for music, empowered Roxanna to seek more. “I knew my music could be useful in this world. Pursuing my dream as a singer was the happiest moment in my life,” she adds. At last, the Canadian-based sensation caught her big break after contacting legendary producer, Mark Portmann and performing Christina Aguilera’s “Lift Me Up.”

Solidifying and incessant bond, the sultry songstress has now teamed up with Portmann for her debut album, Exotica, on which she infuses the influences of pop royalty, like Aguilera, with a sensual Spanish-flare as heard by Julio Iglesias. Seeking to bring “passion back to contemporary music,” Roxanna’s aspiration to share music’s unquestioned power of healing, intertwined with her undaunted ability to sing from the heart prove to be a prevalent theme of passion and raw realness.

Exotica is highlighted by Roxanna’s hit Latin-infused single, “Unforgotten,” as well as love ballads “Close Your Eyes” and “Hello.” Eager to share her journey with the world, the flourishing songbird says, “I can’t wait to share my songs as a testament that time has a way of healing everything. When you find the strength to make a change, love and forgiveness and healing are around the corner.”

Confident that she has found her calling, Roxanna continues to captivate the hearts, bodies, and souls of industry megastars and everyday music-lovers alike. Whether it’s nurturing a broken heart or fostering empowerment, her music and her story remain a genuine testimony of truth.

Listen to the song "Hello"
Cassandra's review- With a super strong voice that will bless your ears, this artist had me relaxed and eager to hear every song.  The song Hello however is a cover type from a super famous artist and I would have preferred if she chose not to remake it as it is best as an original.  However at the same time it is nice to reintroduce the classics to new ears.
Bunny Sigler
(Los Angeles, CA): Living legend Walter "Bunny" Sigler continues to share songs that prove his passion for music goes well beyond his beloved soul songs. Bunny’s songwriting for tracks like Instant Funk's "I Got My Mind Made Up", Patti Labelle's "Somebody Loves You Baby", The Whispers' "Bingo", Jackie Moore's "Sweet Charlie Babe" and The O'Jays "Sunshine" are what put him on the musical map. Not only is Bunny skilled with the pen, but he is also a world-renowned singer bringing his warm, powerhouse vocals to the holiday season. His holiday album, When You're In Love At Christmas Time, showcases Sigler's musical gift to make any song jingle with a commanding soulful flare.

This soul-stirring album features twelve classic Christmas tracks like "Ave Maria", "White Christmas" and the single, "Little Drummer Boy" with a brand new remix premiering this month online. One of Bunny’s favorite holiday tunes, "Little Drummer Boy" showcases his laid-back and soulful sound. Bunny's rendition brings to mind an oversized chair, a roaring fire and eggnog in hand. Sigler knows how to set the scene musically for a great Christmas holiday celebration.

"O Holy Night", another popular track, finds Sigler delivering his signature vocal style on the sacred song. "I've been singing 'O Holy Night' all my life", Sigler says. "I knew that if I ever planned to record a Christmas song, it would be 'O Holy Night,'" he shares. Each song is perfectly executed and sure to have all its listeners in the holiday spirit.

This Philadelphia native began his singing career in churches all over the metropolitan area with songs like "O Lord My God" and "The Lord's Prayer". When You’re In Love At Christmas Time shows that it's more than just the music that captivates his heart; it's a testimony of his relationship with Jesus Christ. "I'm in this for real," says Sigler. "Although I've sung urban music, I never stopped singing sacred music. For me, it's all about ministry."

Bunny Sigler is a rare breed of pure talent. His the holiday album When You're In Love At Christmas Time will be penned as a timeless Christmas classic and it will certainly be a repeat album for many seasons to come.

Cassandra's Review- I am most excited to bring you this CD.  Bunny Sigler is amazing and his voice is smooth.  I had a great time listening to his music and getting into the holiday spirit.
Margo Rey
Los Angeles, CA (November 11, 2014) — Seven-time Billboard charting singer/songwriter Margo Rey will be re-releasing her Christmas EP, This Holiday Night including the original title track along with unforgettable classics, “Toy Land” and “Silent Night”. Rey will also be releasing a “Es Navidad,” a Spanish version of “This Holiday Night.” After her most recent single “Colours”, an emotional and inspirational song about overcoming obstacles, Rey returns with this holiday release just in time for the season.
Margo Rey
Born in Acapulco, Mexico, Rey puts a unique, Latin touch to this 2014 single of “This Holiday Night” – a Top 5 Holiday classic that has continued to dominate and have major chart success on AC radio. Following her album release of Habit and successfully battling breast cancer for a second time in 2013, Margo never stopped pursuing her music. Margo Rey recently became the National Ambassador for non-profit organization Brides Against Breast Cancer providing her top 20 Billboard charting song, “Let The Rain”, co-written by legendary John Oates as their theme song.

The Indie Music Digest says, “Her musical/vocal style is cut from the cloth of Celine Dion, Bonnie Raitt and Shania Twain.” – but I will add she can go toe to toe with any of them vocally.

Working in the music business since she was only eleven years old, Margo continues to provide an array of her signature rich vocals with smooth tunes and funky beats with every release.

Cassandra's Review-  Margo Rey has an  amazing and angelic voice that makes this CD a great! Not only is she a remarkable artist but her music will fill your heart and home,

Now you can enter below to win all four CD's.

"How to Speak 'Cat': How to Pet a Cat (or Dog if Your Must)

I received complimentary products thanks to Morris the cat and 9 lives.

Morris is outfitted with cutting-edge wearable technology straight from Silicon Valley. Through this technology, we can see what Morris sees. Check it out here:

I want to take a moment to thank Morris the Cat for stopping by and sharing his thoughts.

How to Pet a Cat (or Dog if Your Must)
By Morris the cat (9Lives)

One thing I've discovered throughout my years of living well is that more than a few humans could really benefit from cat-petting instruction. Frankly, I’m surprised it’s not a lesson they teach in school.

Although every cat is different and has a unique set of purr-worthy zones, us felines usually have some common petting preferences. So put down your smart phone. Fasten your seat belt. Make sure your seatbacks and tray tables are in their fully upright and locked positions. It's time to learn some life skills, people!

To bond with your cat — and receive a happy purr or friendly head butt, if you do it right -- follow my specific steps for these 9 must-learn and must-do cat petting techniques:

1. The Chin Chillin'

Purpose: Activate scent glands, assist with grooming
Popularized by: Jay Leno, Marlon Brando

Step 1: Locate the underside of the chin where the jawbone connects to the skull.
Step 2: Take one hand and scratch rapidly like your fingers are doing "The Riverdance."
Step 3: Listen for a Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. (Congratulations, you're doing it right!)

2. The Swedish Earmuffs

Purpose: Stimulate glands, release tension
Popularized by: Abba, Vince Vaughn

Step 1: Place your thumb and forefinger behind our ears.
Step 2: Rub them back and forth like Johnny Manziel after scoring a touchdown.
Step 3: Watch us melt into a purring ball of cuddles. (Hint: Drool is good!)

3. The Booty-O-Vator

Purpose: Therapeutic relaxation, triggering kitten memories
Popularized by: Jennifer Lopez, Sir Mix-a-Lot

Step 1: Locate your cat’s rear muscles, right above the tail.
Step 2: Squeeze your hands in and out like you’re kneading dough.
Step 3: Go slow and steady… this isn’t the latest Vin Diesel movie.

NOTE: When we position our rear towards you, it is an offer of camaraderie—much like a posterior Facebook “friend request.”

4. The Neckasaurus Rex

Benefits: Stress relief, cat-human bonding
Popularized by: Keira Knightley, Gweneth Paltrow

Step 1: Feel the spot at the base of your cat’s skull where the head meets the neck.
Step 2: Use your finger and thumb to create a circular motion for 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 3: Watch your cat rub his face against you like a little furry windshield wiper.

5. The Brain Hurricane

Benefits: Stimulates creativity, tends to end in napping
Popularized by: Natalie Portman, Danica McKellar

Step 1: Put your thumb and index finger on the top of your cat's head.
Step 2: Pretend you are a large lobster and gently pinch your thumb and index finger back and forth.
Step 3: Your cat will likely blink and nod in approval (and lucky you for having opposable thumbs!).

6. The Smooth Operator

Benefits: Muscle relaxation, back alignment
Popularized by: Marvin Gaye, Boyz II Men

Step 1: Place one hand in a flat position on the upper portion of your cat's back.
Step 2: Swoop your hand down the entire length of your cat's back saying “smooooth” as you do it.
Step 3: You may feel us stretch out our limbs and paws in kitty delight.

7. The Lumbardi Party

Benefits: Helps release toxins and chemicals, relieves the stress of chasing red laser dots
Popularized by: Rihanna, Vince Lombardi

Step 1: Put down your smartphone and place two hands on our lower back and sides.
Step 2: Position your fingers to form a cat-ready fine-tooth comb.
Step 3: Move your hands to and fro, pausing every so often to let us ask for more.

NOTE: I highly recommend pairing this petting experience with a follow-up nap in a nice sunny spot.

8. The Get Cheeky

Benefits: Social bonding, marks you with our scent glands
Popularized by: Angelina Jolie, Gisele Bundchen

Step 1: Locate your cat's temporal gland on the upper cheek between the eye and ear.
Step 2: Keep your fingers relaxed but firm and give your cat a nice scratch.
Step 3: Much like an NFL football player, you may become the recipient of a friendly head butt.

9. The Shoulderific

Benefits: Therapeutic massage
Popularized by: Michelle Obama, Ashley Greene

Step 1: Place two hands on your cat's back, one on each shoulder blade.
Step 2: Press inward with your palms and use soft circular movements (but don't press on the spine).
Step 3: Feel great about your rapid accumulation of positive kitty points and good cat karma.

NeoCell Review and New Year New You Giveaway

Hyaluronic Acid: Nature's Moisturizer

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) capsules give your skin and joints the quenching hydration that they crave.

HA is one of nature's most water loving molecules and its role in the control of tissue hydration and water transport in the body helps support the appearance of smooth, supple skin, as well as provide lubrication to the joints and eyes.*

NeoCell’s HA Benefits:*

Provides the most bio-available form of hyaluronic acid
Holds 1,000 times its weight in water for cushioning of joints
Assists in cell turnover in the skin
Powerful aid in skin hydration and wrinkle reduction
Lubricates the surface of the eye
NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid:

NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid is a naturally delicious dietary supplement that replenishes the body’s HA supply. It is enhanced with the antioxidant power of Pomegranate and Green Tea, blueberry, and the absorption benefits of Ionic Minerals. This elixir uses Agave nectar as a low glycemic index sweetener.

HA in the Joints:

As we age, the HA content in our bodies naturally decreases. One way this decrease manifests is from UV radiation which breaks down collagen fibers causing wrinkles and sagging skin.

Hyaluronidase, an enzyme produced by free radicals, is an enzyme that also breaks down collagen fibers. HA counteracts this enzyme by plumping the inner layers of the epidermis in a more effective way than topical HA application alone; by hydrating the skin from the inside, HA creates a more youthful skin environment, thus reducing wrinkles.*

HA is found in high concentrations in the joints. HA’s unique property of high viscosity, and therefore low compressibility, provides vital shock absorption and lubrication to the joints. *

Eye problems such as poor vision and dry eyes can also manifest when HA decreases in the body. HA is an important constituent of the ocular tissue and is essential for normal functioning of the eye. *

In the body, Collagen and HA are almost always found together. Collagen provides the mechanical strength of connective tissues and HA, with its ability to bind enormous amounts of water, serves to lubricate these same tissues providing needed hydration. By supplementing with Collagen and HA, you give your body a powerful synergistic team for beautiful skin and healthy connective tissues.*

Doctor's Recommend a minimum of 600 MG per day of EPA and 400 MG of DHA per day while 90% of Essential Fatty Acid and Omega-3 Fish Oil products deliver a fraction of this and while some label claims say otherwise, very few meet FDA requirements for Purity and effectiveness. This is where Nutrizion's Ultra Omega-3X sets itself apart from the competition. No other product can match the Purity, Quality, or Effectiveness of Nutrizion Ultra.

What Makes Us Different?

While others lay claim to Purity and Quality, the fact is Nutrizion Triple Strength formula is Molecularly Distilled in the single largest, FDA Approved, GMP Standard Laboratory in the USA. The cost to deliver the purist form of Omega-3 Fish Oil with maximum efficiency is above what most can provide, but with the volume our facility produces allows us to pass this savings onto our customers at well below industry pricing.

Results You Can Feel

With 3 times the dosing of most National Brands, Nutrizion Fish Oil's 800 MG of EPA and 600 MG of DHA provide results so effective you can feel the difference in just a few weeks. Enjoy the Powerful Long-Term Eye, Brain, Heart and Joint Health, While Boosting Mood, Focus, and Productivity, along with aiding in maximizing weight loss; Ultra Omega-3X will impact your health for years to come!

Super Hemp Raw Shelled Organic Hemp Seeds Review + Giveaway

Super Hemp Raw Shelled Organic Hemp Seeds w/ Omega 3 & 6 (1 lb Bonus-Pack).

"They taste like sunflower seeds... only soft and buttery!"

Super Hemp Seeds contain essential Fatty Acids (alpha-linolenic & linoleic) in a balanced 3:1 ratio. High Protein Super Hempseed contains 20 amino acids and dietary fiber. Delicious buttery flavor will enhance any salad or dish.

Super Hemp is Super Good Superfood...

Super Hemp seed is considered by many nutritionists as nature's most perfect food. Super Hemp is a true superfood providing a perfect 3:1 balance of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. These fatty acids promote heart health, lower triglycerides, work to reduce inflammation, promote brain health, and support the immune system. Low in carbohydrates, hemp seeds are ideal for those following the paleo diet or who need to be carb conscious for their health.

Super Hemp also delivers a power-punch of complete proteins, making it a great addition to vegan and vegetarian diets. In fact, Super Hemp delivers 10g of easily digestable plant-based protein per 1 oz serving. Compare that to 6g protein in one large hard boiled egg.

...Super Hemp is super good in recipes, toppings or raw.
...Super Hemp contains more protein and omegas and less carbs than the same serving of Chia seeds or Flax.
...Super Hemp packs a perfectly balaced dose of both Omega 3 and Omega 6 (10g omegas per 28g serving).
...Super Hemp is RAW, shelled, USDA-certified-organic hempseeds.
...Super Hemp is Cold-processed (under 104°F) from raw, live hemp seeds.
...Super Hemp is 33% protein; rich in iron, vitamin E, and GLA (gamma-linolenic acid).
...Super Hemp is a product of Canada.

Super Hemp hulled hemp seeds have a light buttery nut-like flavor, making a nutritious and tasty addition to hot cereal and smoothies. Super Hemp blends easily into desserts, breads, pancakes, granola bars and other baked goods. Sprinkle Super Hemp on salads and blend into pilafs, but don't stop there... Super Hemp tastes great with almost everything.

Because of their high oil content, hemp seeds should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer to keep fresh.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- As this was my first time trying hemp seeds, I did not know what to except. It seems that I actually enjoy them plain without mixing them into anything.  I can eat them by the handfuls and they make a great travel treat.
