Emmy Rossum Sentimental Journey Album Review

I have to admit, the first time around I heard this album, I was not immediately sold (I tend to listen to more upbeat get-up-and-dance music). However, after listening to it a 2nd and 3rd time, it really grew on me more and more each time and some of the songs started getting stuck in my head. I found myself humming them throughout the day.

Some of my favorites are: The Object of My Affection, I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover and Many Tears Ago. But my MOST favorite is: Things.  It is upbeat, light, happy and makes me think of skipping through a meadow of flowers footloose and fancy free :)

The reason I really like Emmy Rossum is because her voice is's not all digitized like 99% of the "singers" out there. You can hear that she has pure, raw talent...which, in today's age is so rare.  (Ex: Real housewife of Atlanta Kim Zolciak "Don't be Tardy for the Party" Uhmmm embarrassing!)

Rossum is also an acclaimed actress who currently stars in the Showtime series Shameless with William H. Macy. She also stars alongside Emma Thompson and Viola Davis in the upcoming feature film Beautiful Creatures, which hits theaters on February 13th.

As a side note, I literally just discovered Shameless and am HOOKED on it. Kinda embarrassed to admit it, but I just connected that this talented singer is the same person as in the Shameless series. How did I not connect that?! Either way, now that I have, I am even more excited about her!

Isn't she so pretty!?!

  1. “Sentimental Journey” (Les Brown, Ben Homer, Arthur Green)
  2. “The Object Of My Affection” (Pinky Tomlin)
  3. “I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover “(Mort Dixon, Harry M. Woods)
  4. “These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)” (Eric Maschwitz, Jack Strachey)
  5. “(I’ll Be With You) In Apple Blossom Time” (Albert Von Tilzer, Neville Fleeson)
  6. “Summer Wind” (Heinz Meier, Johnny Mercer)
  7. “Many Tears Ago” (Winfield Scott)
  8. “All I Do Is Dream Of You” (Nacio Herb Brown, Arthur Freed)

My son, is hands down, a picky eater.  When BzzAgent picked me to try out the Super Why Alpha Bits Cereal I was excited and hopeful that my little man would take a liking to it. I didn't want to get my hopes up, but figured it would be worth a try. 

When the package came, Little Man, helped me open the box and immediately yelled SUPER WHY when he saw the packaging. Instantly he wanted some. I gave him a few pieces thinking he wouldn't really eat it, but to my surprise, she shoved the cereal in his mouth and said "MORE!". Happily, I gave him more...and more...and more...after a while I had to stop because I was worried he wouldn't eat dinner!

We have now gone through pretty much the entire box.  He loves it, I love it, my hubby loves it...even our dog loves it!  Little Man would eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner if he could. It also makes a great snack! I love to take some in a ziplock bag if I know we are going to be out a while. This way, my son has something to happily munch on while we are out and about (ok ok I might sneak a few pieces too!)

If you haven't already tried Alpha-Bits, I really recommend that you do. I'm not a huge cereal person by any means, but even I really like it!!!

Post Alpha-Bits


Post Alpha-Bits cereal is a great way for your child to kick off their day each and every morning. Not only is Alpha-Bits a fun and wholesome breakfast choice enjoyed by American families since 1958, it also provides 20 grams of whole grain* and 12 essential vitamins and minerals per serving. Plus, the great taste will have your child running to the breakfast table every morning to get extra practice with their letters!
*Per 30g serving. Nutritionists recommend at least 3 servings of whole grain foods each day (about 16g per serving or 48g per day).

Have you heard of PV.Body?!?

pvBody is a monthly service that sends you workout clothes every month. The first thing you need to do is take a style quiz where you enter your preferences for color, style, favorite workout type and more (that way they can send you clothes tailored to YOU!). Every month, a full exercise outfit (top and bottom) gets delivered to your door for $49.95 $39.65 (if you click here).

This sounds AMAZING! How do I get started?

Here is what you do!

1) Fill out a style questionnaire (to see what style fitness clothing you like best).

2) See what your fitness style profile.

3) Get amazing brands shipped to your door every month that include a super cute top and bottom valued at over $100 for only $39.65. You will get a 20% discount if you go through my link. Otherwise the monthly fee is $49.95.

Another really awesome thing, is that shipping is always FREE.

I filled out the style survey to see what my style is and now I am waiting for my box to come in!

I will be doing a review when my box comes in, so stay tuned!!!

While you are waiting for my review, check out pv.body! Seriously, you can't go wrong, pay $39.96 for a top and bottom that retails at AT LEAST $139. It's a win win situation. If the top or bottom happen to not fit right, just let pvBody know and they will send you a new one ASAP. Also, if for whatever reason you don't want to continue your subscription, you can cancel at ANY TIME! What's not to love? If you haven't tried them out now, I highly suggest that you.....
