Super Mario Costume Review

As you can see I received this costume to review from, my son was extremely excited when the package arrived.  He is a Mario fanatic and was very happy with this costume.

His favourite is Luigi. plus his little cousin owns a Mario costume.  This costume also came with a Stick-On Moustache for my son to wear but I wanted to save it for Halloween.  I ordered this suit in a size 10/12,  a little too big just the way I had hoped.  This way when Halloween rolls around it should be a perfect fit. The SUPER MARIO COSTUMES are made of some good quality material and I am not scared to wash it, it also has a Velcro closure in the back for easy removal.
I have to say I am very impressed with the product and also with the customer service and prices. has a great selection! I can honestly say that you can find any costume your looking for at a great price!  
Check it out!   5 STARS for the great costumes!

Chocolate Lovers Beware: Homemade Brownies! Next to straight-up fudge, is there anything that the chocolate lover’s tastebuds relish more than the fluffy, rich, textured and still-warm taste of a homemade brownie? While fudge (with either mint or peanut-butter) may take the crown for King of Chocolate, brownies are much easier to make. This gives brownies an edge in the debate (if you weren’t aware of this debate, it exists now!).

So, now that the debate between brownies and fudge has been decided in brownie’s favor, how should you go about making a brownie that can back up that claim? All brownie recipes have similar ingredients: eggs, sugar, butter, and so on. The trick to creating a brownie that lives up to its title as Champion Chocolate is to supplement the usual star ingredients with something extra. Think butterscotch chips, brown sugar, and my personal touch, chopping up semi-sweet chocolate into chunks instead of the comparatively blasé Tollhouse chips that everyone assume…

Toni's Review of Sevin by Elizabeth Amber ***4 Stars***

Lord Sevin Satyr indulges freely in the delights of the flesh within his infamous Salone di Passione, the talk of 1880s Rome. Surely the Humans who would deny his kind their pleasures can be persuaded to share them in a new Salone he plans just for them—above all, the beautiful Alexa Patrizzi. Fiery and spirited, she is made for sin…

Sevin’s younger brother Lucien possesses powers he cannot control. Held in the Roman catacombs as a sex slave until he was eighteen, he finds refuge in the ElseWorld—and sexual healing in the arms of Natalia, a maenad, who thinks Luc too beautiful, too young for her. But when his mirrored eyes heat to molten silver at her touch, she can only love him more…

I can officially say that Ms. Amber is consistent!  Sevin is panty melting hot, but she followed her pattern that she started with the first set of satyr men (books 1-4), ending a series quickly and abruptly, but in a good yet frustrating way.
Sevin is the brother that …

Toni's Review of The Belle Stalker by Minnette Meador ***5 Stars***

For a year, Belle Stark has struggled to conquer fears plaguing her since being attacked by a maniac, who continues to roam free, and the murder of her father. And she nearly succeeds, until she discovers her lover’s murdered body spread over the furniture, making Belle a prime suspect. Certain her attacker is to blame, she seeks help from her ex-husband, homicide detective Mike Cranston, the one person she swore she would never let back into her life or heart.

In their hunt for answers, the two uncover more than a lunatic: a supernatural underworld hidden beneath the tall skyscrapers of the city and a secret that could kill them both. Faced with a terrible choice, Belle surrenders herself into the hands of a monster, and Mike must solve an ancient mystery before it’s too late to save her...

Toni's Review of His Dark Embrace by Amanda Ashley ***3.5 Stars***


Tall, dark, mysterious—and with a faint scar on his cheek that only makes him more gorgeous—Kaiden Thorne is one schoolgirl obsession Skylynn never forgot. Now, returning to her childhood home after eight years, she can’t believe her reclusive neighbor is still living across the street—and hotter than ever. Skylynn doesn't know how Kaiden manages to stay so young, virile, and impossibly attractive. But she knows she wants him…even if he harbors a fearful secret he refuses to tell her.

When Kaiden sees the beautiful young woman Skylynn has become, he can no longer control the bloodlust that is his true nature. Once he pulls Skylynn into his arms, presses his lips against hers—and accidentally draws blood—he longs for more. Only she possesses what he wants and what he needs. Only she can save him or destroy him. But once Skylynn agrees to help Kaiden battle his darkest desires, there is no turning back…

Skylynn knows …

Hi ALL! 
We'll be taking a 24 Hour Cruise in the Mediterranean to celebrate and if that's not enough for a good time there's tons of prizes to be given away!  Thanks to our many friends here at BRNMD.

Our friends have each brought something for us all to enjoy, for instance Lisa Beth Darlinghas brought lots of Rum to drink. Deena Remiel brought us some great music to dance to!

How about we start our tour of the Cruise Ship and I'll let you know what else our friends have brought to the party.
Here is the Main Lobby, on the wall next to the staircase you'll find the maps.  I'm sure they'll come in handy because this place is huge!
The next place that we are sure to enjoy fully is the pools and the surfing waves, lots of eye candy!

Amanda Graywasn't sure what she wanted to bring so I thought maybe I'd ask her to bring the boogey boards and surfers ;)

How about we visit the Spa to?  A gre…

Add a Pinprick of Revenge . . .

And Watch Things Boil Over . . .
A junk-food junkie P.I. offers his services, and although Penny is wary of the sexy Cajun's motives (and his diet), she's desperate. Dodging a media sideshow and a looming murder rap, Penny realizes that somehow she's landed herself "In Deep Voodoo,"
