Calimojos are not just super cute flip flops that I love to wear.  They are comfortable.  Their is something totally unique about these cute sandals though.  They change color when you go out in the sunlight.  Isn't that the neatest thing?  You honestly will have people asking you about these if you wear them.  I have people inquiring about them all the time because they have never seen anything like it.  My 7 year old was even intrigued.  The Calimojos come in a variety of size options.  I received a pair in the pink butterfly pattern.  They are great to wear in the Summer with shorts and a tank.  They are also great to wear out by the pool.  I love that when I go outside in the sun that the straps on my Calimojos turn purple.

William Hill Estate Winery Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



What is in my wine glass?

You have seen William Hill Estate Winery featured on my blog a few times.  This is an impressive winery that has excellent wines.  Have you tried any of these?  They offer a great selection of red and white wines.  I was recently given the opportunity to try some of their newly released wines.  They have a Central Coast Merlot, and a Central Coast Sauvignon Blanc.  Which one would you want to try?





William Hill Central Coast Sauvignon Blanc
This is a dry white wine.  Although, it does have notes of fruitness to it.  It has hints of Meyer lemon, lychee, and more.  The wine is served best chilled and super cold.  It is a great crisp white to serve in the Summer too!  It is easy to drink and perfect for entertaining.  This wine is made from Sauvignon grapes from the North Coast.  It retails for about $17 a bottle.  The wine would be perfect paired with grilled chicken or pork.  What would you pair it with?

William Hill Central Coast Merlot
I really love a great dry red wine.  This wine is just that.  The William Hill Central Coast Merlot is a smooth red.  It is similar to a Cab, but not as rich in flavor.  This Merlot is made with Merlot grapes from the Central Coast.  The wine has a hint of spiciness to it.  This wine retails for about $17 a bottle too.  

These are just some of the wines that the William Hill Estate Winery offers.  You can visit their website to learn more about all of them.

Dei Fratelli Pin to Win Contest and Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



Dei Fratelli is currently running a Pin and Win contest via Pinterest.  The contest is easy to enter too.  You simply pin your favorite recipe using their products.  Use the hashtag #DaybyDei in your pin in order to qualify.  They will select 2 winners every week.  You can checkout their Pinterest page to see the complete details about this contest.  






I use quite a bit of tomato products in my cooking.  I use them in my stews, soups, Italian dishes, Mexican dishes, and more.  I received some samples of Dei Fratelli's tomato products and was so impressed.  These are made the way that packaged tomato products should be made.  I have found that using high quality tomato in my dishes really does make a difference.  I used Dei Fratelli's Truly tomatoes in a few different ways.  These are a neat product because they do not come in a can.  They come in a carton.  I used their finely chopped tomatoes in my Swiss Steak recipe, and they were perfect.  I also used their petite diced tomatoes to create a tasty sauce for our pita pizzas.  Dei Fratelli also offers juices.  Their Truly Veggie juice was excellent.  It has a really fresh taste, and tastes completely different than canned veggie juices.

These are just some of the great tomato products that Dei Fratelli has to offer.  You can visit their website to learn more about these products.  You can also connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
