Equalizer 3 and the Equalizer 3-Film 4K Ultra HD Multi-Feature Available Now - Makes Great Stocking Stuffers for Denzel Washington Fans! (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a screener from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.








Buy now from Amazon for only $34.99

The 3-film 4K Ultra HD multi-feature exclusively includes IMAX-Enhanced disc-based presentations of the films, with immersive DTS-X audio for THE EQUALIZER 2 and THE EQUALIZER 3.

Leave it to Denzel Washington to take us on another thrill ride with Equalizer 3.  This highly anticipated movie in the 3 movie franchise is finally available to own on 4K HD, Blu-ray and DVD, as well as part of an exclusive 3-Film Equalizer Collection.  I missed the movie when it released to theaters, and have been eagerly awaiting its release to home video.  

The folks at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment recently sent me a screener of Equalizer 3 to watch, and I couldn't wait to watch it.  WOW! is all I have to say after watching this movie.  Usually I am not a fan of movies that have sequels, but anything that Denzel Washington is in, always is great, and the Equalizer 3 release is no exception.

Like the previous two Equalizer movies, this movie will pull you in from the start, and has your eyes glued to the TV screen, as you don't want to miss a single minute.  You truly are taken for a thrill ride as you find yourself being pulled in one direction one minute and the next the movie spins into another direction.  I love movies where you never know what it going to happen next.  And, predictions that you may have end up spinning all around and going here, there and everywhere, never letting up on the action and intrigue of the story line.  Denzel Washington is great in this franchise and really is an amazing actor. 

My husband and I watched this movie the other night, after binging the first two Equalizer movies.  As soon as the movie was over I asked my husband his thoughts. He was in agreeance that this movie was his favorite of the three.  It was jam packed with action and suspense, and  had Denzel's character Robert McCall staying calm and collected through it all.  This is what I love about this movie franchise, how Denzel can stay relaxed, while everything around is spinning out of control.  He is committed to justice and a true hero as he looks to set things right throughout the movie. 

I am so glad I was finally able to see this movie and now can binge all three Equalizer movies whenever I want.  But, for now, I think we will  be watching this recent release again, not just for the amazing movie, but for the bonus content.  So far, we have only gotten through the Denzel and Dakota: A Reunion feature and the Jacob Banks "Monster" Lyric Video from the bonus content section.  This weekend we will watch the movie again, and then finish up the additional bonus contention with includes a handful of featurettes and Postcards from the Amalfi Coast.

If you are a huge Denzel Washington fan like I am, and loved the previous two Equalizer movies, I highly recommend you pick up the new Equalizer 3 release to add to your collection.  And, if you don't have the previous two movies, you can grab the 3-Film Equalizer Collection and have all three, to watch time and again.  These movies also make for great stocking stuffers for movie buffs and those who love action and suspense films.  


More about Equalizer 3:

"United in Love" is the Message of Lolovivi's Stunning Black and White Interlocking Hearts Sapphire Necklace #LoloviviLove - Enter to #Win One Today! #Giveaway

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

If jewelry is on the top of your wish list for Christmas, or you have tweens/teens asking for a necklace, I wanted to make sure you had a new jewelry brand on your radar -Lolovivi Jewelry.  This inclusive brand's motif, as seen in their logo above with two interlocking hearts, is "United in Love."  In addition to offering a wonderful selection of jewelry (rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more), Lolovivi also gives back.  "The brand puts its mission where its mouth is and does its part to help create a world that is United in Love, by routinely giving 5% from sales to organizations working for inclusion and equality."

The folks at Lolovivi Jewelry recently sent along a sample of their Black and White Sapphire Necklace for me to review. First, I really liked how they sent along the necklace.  It arrived in a cute velvet pouch (think the size of a clutch bag).  Inside the pouch was the gorgeous sterling silver necklace.  Boy, was it stunning!  

Even though it has a simple design of the two hearts (one black and one white) interlocking, the way in which they contrasted the sapphire stones in each of the hearts really captures your eye, and makes you stop and take notice.  The sterling silver necklace itself is a 18 inch infinity link, which complements the intertwined heart well.  I am not usually a fan of sapphires, but I really like the contrast of the black and white sapphires, as they blend together so harmoniously.  And, what is so great about this necklace is that you can wear it with either a dressed up look, or even with casual attire.  I have the perfect black dress I plan to wear to upcoming holiday parties, and this will look amazing around my neck, and I know many people will stop and take notice of it.  I can't wait to share how this stunning  necklace is only $60 and is available in the black and white design, or all white, as shown below.

Buy the White Sapphire Necklace now for only $60

You don't have to be big into jewelry to appreciate the exceptional craftmanship of this necklace.  It has already become a treasured piece in my jewelry collection, and I love the message of "drawing on the beauty of diversity to help you express your own inner strength.  I really like this message, and love when a company gives back like Lolovivi does.  With the holidays fast approaching now is time to start placing online orders in order to get them in time for Christmas, and not be disappointed when things you really want sell out.  The Black and White Sapphire Necklace, as well as the White Sapphire Necklace from Lolovivi are sure to sell out this year, not just because they are beautiful, but because the price is right at only $60.  Where can you get a sterling silver necklace with sapphires for that price?!  This necklace looks like it would cost a few hundred dollars as it is made so well, and sparkles.  This necklace would make the perfect gift for those hard to shop for tweens/teens in your life, or as a gift for yourself just because.  I am planning to buy a few of these necklaces to gift my girls, as well as give one to my mother for the holidays.  They all like my necklace and compliment me when I wear it, and I know they will be excited to have this necklace from Lolovivi to wear and add to their jewelry collections.

You can learn more about these necklaces and other jewelry available from Lovovivi by visiting their website --   Just be warned, it will be hard not to want to add everything to your shopping cart, as everything on the Lolovivi will catch your eye, and have your wishing you owned it. :-)

Axol & Friends are the "Plushies with a Purpose" - Gift One of These Cute and Cuddly Axolotl Plush Toys and Help Support This Sustainable Movement (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Ever since my oldest saw an axolotl at the pet store a few years ago, she continues to ask for one to this day. She has done her research and read up on caring for an axolotl.  But, we currently have a senior rescue dog who prefers to be the only pet in the house and wouldn't do well with another pet, even if in a tank, in the house. Plus, we have had a handful of pets through the years and it always ends the same way -- with me taking care of the pets.  Yes, the girls are all excited at the start when we bring a new pet home and help take care of them for the first few months. But, then they get busy with school and activities or don't find their "new" pet as much fun, so they let me take care of feeding, cleaning the cage or up after them, etc.  Because of this, whenever one of the girls asks for a new pet, I am quick to say, "Not right now."  

My oldest daughter started asking again for an axolotl as one of her friends got one and says it was the coolest thing.  It wasn't until the axolotl started to grow and her friend's parents had to get a bigger tank, that things started to set in that an axolotl as a pet can be work, and you need to be ready to upgrade the tank so they have room to move out.  The average tank should be 29 or 40 gallons. Axolotls grow to about 12-13 inches long and can live 5-6 years on average, with some living much longer.  My girls are in 9th grade right now, so I know if we were ever to get another pet, I would be left to take care of once they headed off to college.  

I found a way for my daughter to stop asking for an axolotl thanks to the folks at Axol & Friends.  I surprised her with a cute gray Axolotl plush called Axol.  

Buy now for only $24.99

Axol the Axolotl is a plush designed in the image of the endangered salamander native to Mexico. These little creatures are quirky, silly, and have amazing regenerative abilities. Axol is adventure ready, fun for all ages, soft and cuddly and even meets all governmental regulations for cute plush toys!

* Recycled Polyester Fabric

* Measures 8 Inches Tall

* Portion of Sale Donated to Youth Empowerment and Environmental Conservation      Programs! 

* Comes in Limited Edition Canvas Drawstring Bag


She still loves plushies and collecting them. And, her bed is covered with all her favorite stuffed toys.  So, I knew a new plush would be perfect for her.  As soon as she saw Axol, her heart melted and she couldn't wait to snuggle and cuddle this oh so soft and cuddly axolotl plush.  She couldn't get over just how soft this plush was, and loved the color.  It was the perfect size for cuddling, and also sits perfectly on her school desk when she is doing her online classes.  She loves glancing over and seeing her smiling Axol plush watching her. :-)

And, thanks to the folks at Axol and Friends, my youngest didn't have to feel left out or without an axolotl of her own, as they graciously sent along another one of their popular axolotl plushies, the mini realistic axolotl plush in pink.  


Buy the mini realistic Axolotl Plush for only $34.99

(Currently available in pink, gray or blue)

This lovable plush is designed after the axolotl, an endangered salamander native to central Mexico. Available in multiple sizes and weights, the realistic axolotl plush provides a sense of comfort and calmness in times of anxiety or nervousness.

Ten trees are planted for every plushie sold, and 1/2 of the profit is donated to our youth programs. Together we can change the world!

She couldn't get over just how realistic this mini axolotl plush looked to the real thing. And, just like her sister's plush axolotl, she gave hers a good squeeze to check to see just how cuddley and soft it was, and it passed with flyer colors.  Even though my youngest is a tween now, I oftentimes find her carrying around this plush axolotl and snuggling with it on the couch.  She likes how it feels, and I like how the girls now have their very own axolotls without all the upkeep.

Do you have an axolotl lover in your life?  Or, have your kids have been asking for one after seeing it at a pet store or online?  

Beyond cuddles, they promote awareness of endangered species and plants, and every purchase supports nonprofit partners worldwide, fueling after-school programs that empower the next generation to become impassioned activists and environmentalists. With therapeutic benefits like weighted designs and scented pouches, these plushies offer comfort and sensory support. Join their mission to invest in our planet, empower youth, and create a brighter future."

Why not pick them up their very own soft and cuddly axolotl plush from Axol and Friends. They come in a variety of colors and sizes, including scented and weighted axolotl plushies. There are also collector pins and even a cute assortment of Mr. Catcus plush toys for those catcus lovers in your life.  

The hard part will be choosing the perfect axolotl plush as they are all so cute. 

""Plushies With A Purpose" – Axol & Friends is not your typical plush toy brand; it's a sustainable movement with intention. Their socially-conscious plushies, led by the adorable Axol the axolotl, are made from recycled materials and perfect for gifting. 

Not only will they get to love on this oh so cute and cuddly plush (which is made from recycled plastic), but 1/2 the profit of each purchase is donated to youth programs, and 10 trees are planted for every sale. So, it is a win-win for everyone, and this becomes a gift that keeps on giving.  I love gifts like this, and also love supporting businesses with a purpose like this one.
