Big G Cereal Heros

What’s more awesome than cereal? Cereal AND super heroes! Two of my boys favorite things.For a limited time, specially marked Big G cereal boxes will feature collectable DC Super Hero comic books starring members from the Justice League, from Batman to Wonder Woman to Green Lantern! (How cool is that right?!) Personally I give mad props to any cereal company that actually still puts toys in the cereal box instead of having to send 100 upcs off to get one. (Is General Mills the only brand that does that?)
We are huge cereal eaters here, for breakfast, lunch, and sometimes even dinner.(Yep I just admitted that to the entire world- I occasionally feed my kids cereal for breakfast!) I also put cereal in my kids lunch (dry of course)- oddly enough that some how makes me the cool mom! But my favorite thing to do with cereal is make cereal bars! Try this recipe, it literally works with ANY cereal. We tried it most recently with Lucky Charms (NOM).

So- I know you’re wondering how you can get your hands on some Big G cereal (besides going to the grocery)
Heres what you will win!

1 box of a participating Big G cereal
1 set of the collectable DC Super Hero comic books
1 Green Lantern action figure

“Pretty” by Jillian Lauren Review & Giveaway

I had the pleasure of receiving two copies of “Pretty” by Jillian Lauren. One for me to enjoy, and one for one of my readers. Initially I was concerned about reading this book because Im quite a book snob, and I was concerned that it wouldn’t be the best and I would still have to power through it, and then find something nice to say on my blog about it. Luckily for me it was the total opposite. I’ve found its really hard to find a GOOD book. One that makes you feel like your in the book. “Pretty” did that. Its going to be added to my library of books I will reread over and over.
I adore her almost “song like” writing, flowing perfectly. Pretty is beautifully written and descriptive.
(Im still reading this book, since because of my health I can only read small bits at a time. I will have a full review written later.)
Bebe Baker is an ex-everything: ex-stripper, ex-Christian, ex-drug addict, ex-pretty girl.

It’s been one year since the car accident that killed her boyfriend left her scarred and shaken. Flanked by an eccentric posse of friends, she is serving out a self-imposed sentence at a halfway house, while trying to finish cosmetology school.

Amid the rampant diagnoses, over-medication, compulsive eating, and acrylic nails of Los Angeles, Bebe looks for something to believe in before something–her past, the dangerously magnetic men in her life, her own bad choices–knocks her off course again.

Author and performer Jillian Lauren grew up in suburban New Jersey and fled across the water to New York City. She attended New York University for three minutes before dropping out to work in downtown theater, where she performed with Richard Foreman’s Ontological Hysteric Theater, among others.

Her New York Times bestselling memoir, SOME GIRLS: My Life in a Harem was published by Plume in April 2010. It has since been translated into fourteen different languages.

Jillian and her 3 year old T.(isn’t she gorgeous?)

Her debut novel, PRETTY, was released on August 30, 2011.

“Jillian” has an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University. Her writing has appeared in The Paris Review Daily, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Flaunt Magazine, Opium Magazine, Society, Pale House: A Collective and in the anthology My First Time: A Collection of First Punk Show Stories.

She lives with her husband and son in Los Angeles, CA.
