The Hunger Games!!

Ok, so I don't know how many of you have read the book or seen the preview for the movie, or how many of you are planning to see the movie. All I have to say is.............


And I'm pretty excited about it if you can't tell!

I've read all the books, I finished all three in two days.  That is how hooked I was, and so I've just been waiting for the movie to come out.  And for the past few weeks I've been bouncing off the walls and trying to decide if I wanted to go to the midnight showing.

Well my mind was made up 20 minutes ago when my cousin told me she had an extra ticket if I wanted to go to the midnight showing with her.

Uhh, Hell yes I want to go! Actually, it was more like this:
SERIOUSLY!?!?!??!?!!?!?!? UHHHH YEAH!

But anyway. Point is, I'm going and I'm super excited.

I've read a few reviews on the movie and I'm hoping it's as good as I think it's going to be.  I will let you all know though! =)

SodaStream Review!!

Who here loves Soda?

I do I do!! I love soda, something about the fizz just makes me smile.  I love water and tea too, especially sweet tea, yum yum. But Something about having a nice cold glass of soda just brings a smile to my face. Now, when I buy soda in the store it's a bit of a pain, you have to think of the cost, the storage, and what to do with the bottles when you're done with them.  So I end up with a ton of bottles that need to go back and I have to shove them somewhere until I get a chance to take them back.

So who has heard of the SodaStream?

I have I have! SodaStream is a company that makes At Home soda makers. SodaStream is an "Active Green" product, meaning that consumers are actively reducing their COfootprint every time they make soda or sparkling water at home instead of buying it from the store. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more CO2 footprint the user actively saves. Using your own soda make means:
  • Less packaging waste from cans and bottles.
  • Less pollution caused by transport of bottled beverages.
One SodaStream carbonator makes 60 or 110 liters, equivalent to 170 or 310 aluminum cans! When empty, the carbonator is refilled and reused, ready to make more fizzy and tasty soda whenever you want it.

So last week I received my very own SodaStream!! To say that I was excited is an understatement.  I opened it as soon as I got it in the house.  

So along with my SodaStream I also got full size bottles of the soda mixes.  I got:
Diet Lemon Lime (Like Diet Sprite)
Root Beer
Diet Pink Grapefruit
Pomegranate Peach Green Tea
Cola Free (Like Coke Zero)
Cranberry Raspberry
Ginger Ale
Black Currant & Pear
My Water Flavors

So the first thing I noticed was that I didn't have to plug this in, I didn't even have to use batteries.  I was so surprised, I kind of just stared at it for a few minutes like "What?!" But anyway.

So what you do is fill the Soda bottle with water up to the fill line, and screw it into your SodaStream:

And then you press the button on top until you hear the buzz.  Three buzzes means that your soda is fizzy! You can do more that three or less, but three is good for me! 

Then you remove the bottle and choose your flavor! Fill the cap and pour it in!  

The first one I made was Pomegranate Peach Green Tea.

What do I think??

I LOVE this thing! It's easy to use and the Soda tastes great. The Cola Free tastes exactly like Coke Zero to me and the Root Beer tastes just like Root Beer, I also think the Diet Lemon Lime is better than Diet Sprite.  And it holds the fizz.  It's not like when you buy soda and after you open the bottle a few times all the fizz is gone.    It is so convenient, no need to go to the store to buy soda, you can make your own! 

I would recommend the SodaStream for all the soda lovers out there. It's easy to use, It tastes great and you don't have to worry about storing soda or soda bottles anymore. 

Oh! And just a tip:
When I fill the bottle with Water, I put it in the fridge for a while to let it get nice and cold. =)

The Wanted....Ahhhhh...

The Wanted. =)

If you have heard of The Wanted, they're a British and Irish boy band based in London..... And they are AMAZING!  Seriously, I have an obsession.

So first..... The members!

Tom Parker:

Max George

Siva Kaneswaran

Jay McGuiness

Nathan Sykes

Now I LOVE The Wanted, I think they're great, and they're not the typical "boy band".  They play instruments, they can sing, and I think they're just wonderful. They're also more focused on the music other than their looks, which I KNOW you can't tell, because they are HOT, but still.

They are based in London and they have been popular there for a few years, and they debuted in the USA last year. =) Although I gotta say boys, dancing is not a strong suit, at least not that I've seen.... But that doesn't make me love them any less!!! 

Plus, who doesn't love sexy men with even sexier accents? I mean seriously.  =)

So here's their single, Glad You Came. I love it. 

You can also find live performances on Youtube, if you search Glad You Came The Wanted, you can find the one they did on Ellen, and it was great.  They went into the audience, it was great. =)

They also did a cover of Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls and I love it.  I like the song, and I love this cover, their voices go so well together and I think I might like this better than the original.

Plus.... Tom's raspy voice just gets me every time. =)

Not only are these boys great at their own songs, but when it comes to covers, they are the best out there.

Tom, Max, Siva, Jay, and Nathan totally slayed their solos left and right and killed on the harmonies on their cover of Neon Trees' "Animal". 

Ok, and just one more....... Hopefully. This is their song Gold Forever. =)

And I have to end this now, or I will just post more videos. I  TOLD you I had an obsession.

But Part of the reason I posted so many videos is because I can sit here and tell you a thousand times how wonderful they are.  How great their music is, how much I love them. But no matter what I say you have to form your own opinion, and I must say, I think it's going to be the same as mine. lol. Or at least....I hope it is. =)

If you want more music from The Wanted you can search on youtube for The Wanted. =)
