Blaze Pizza review and giveaway

Last week I went to a fun blogger event at Blaze Pizza in Royal Oak, MI. It was planned by Amber from Metro Detroit Mommy. Blaze Pizza is new to our area, opening last October. They also have a location in Novi and soon to be one in Kalamazoo. 
Fast-fire'd & build your own pizza are new to me. I decided to try a white top pizza (white cream sauce with mozzarella, applewood bacon, chopped garlic, oregano, arugula) & Caesar salad. Don't miss out on trying the signature dessert, s'more pie, and get it heated up in the oven. You can see the whole menu HERE. They even offer gluten-free dough and vegan options.

They have a topping bar just like you would see at a sandwich shop or a fast food mexican restaurant. They asked me if I wanted roasted or chopped garlic and if I wanted arugula lettuce on top after it was cooked. Then I requested oil on top. 
They cook all of the pizzas in a big oven dome which is heated to 600F-900F, so they do cook quickly. Even with all of us there, we were eating in record time. This makes it a great place to eat lunch or a quick dinner before heading to the movies.
I also tried the veggie pizza & a s'mores dessert pizza that they specially made for us. Everything was wonderful with a perfectly crisp crust & fresh toppings. The great thing about one of these pizzas is it's big enough to split with someone or you can have leftovers for yourself. It tastes just as good reheated in the oven the next day.
Another thing I like about this company is that almost all of its packaging is made in the USA from post-consumer recycled and/or sustainable materials.
The awesome team at Blaze Pizza gave us a blaze hat & reusable bag. My teen son has already claimed the hat.
I plan to take my family back. Half of my crew only like pepperoni & cheese pizza, but some of us like to try something new and different.

Contestants Can Test Their Fastball Skills at
Downtown Disney District in Anaheim, Calif., ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida or
the Tribeca Family Festival in New York

Nine Finalists Will Advance to the Final Contest Held at
Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” World Premiere in Hollywood, California

Burbank, Calif.  (April 11, 2014) –Disney is giving amateur baseball pitchers in the nation a chance to compete for a $1 million prize in the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest. The Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest is being held to celebrate the opening of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm,” an incredible true story about two young men who went from never throwing a baseball to getting a Major League tryout.

Amateur baseball pitchers—male or female, who are legal United States residents at least 18 years of age or older—are invited to qualify to compete in the preliminary rounds of the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest at either Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida, Disneyland® Resort in California or at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Day at the Tribeca Family Festival in New York City. The three contestants from each location who throw the fastest pitches will advance to the finals and have a chance to compete for a $1 million prize at the world premiere of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” in Hollywood, California. Official rules are available on’s “Million Dollar Arm” homepage at

Presented by SUBWAY® restaurants, the three qualifying events will take place on April 25 and 26, from 7 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., at both Downtown Disney District in Anaheim, Calif. and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World® and on April 26 only, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Day during the Tribeca Family Festival in New York City. Contestants will throw three pitches, each tracked by a radar gun, in an attempt to throw the fastest pitch. All participants will receive tickets for themselves and a guest to see an advance screening of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” at an AMC Theatres location later that evening.

Nine finalists chosen during these qualifying events will have a chance to compete for the $1 million prize at the world premiere of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm.” The top three eligible pitchers with the fastest pitches from each qualifying round location will be flown with his or her guest to the final contest, which will take place at the world premiere of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” in Hollywood, Calif., on May 6.  Each of these finalists will throw three pitches on Hollywood Boulevard. Any eligible finalist who throws one 100 mph strike (out of three pitches) will become a potential winner of the $1 million grand prize.
The nine finalists and their guests will be VIPs at the film’s premiere along with stars, filmmakers, major league players, coaches, scouts and celebrities.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Subject to Official Rules available at event or at

Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.
Directed by Craig Gillespie from a screenplay written by Tom McCarthy, Disney’s drama “Million Dollar Arm” stars Jon Hamm, Aasif Mandvi, Bill Paxton,Suraj Sharma, Lake Bell and Alan Arkin. The producers are Mark Ciardi, Gordon Gray and Joe Roth. The executive producers are Palak Patel, Kevin Halloran, Bill Simmons and Connor Schell. The film will be release in the United States on May 16, 2014.

Ruma Organics review and giveaway

I was given a jar of essential peppermint scented organic deodorant cream to try out. I love the mint scent. It really did keep me smelling fresh all day. The ingredients are organic corn starch, aluminum free sodium bicarbonate, and organic virgin coconut oil, with your choice of peppermint, lavender, or lemon essential oil. The essential oils have their own health benefits and also provide a light and pleasant scent. Learn more. To use it, you just scoop a bit out with your finger & rub into your underarm area. Unlike paraben-based stick deodorants that sit on the surface of your armpits and masks odor, Ruma Organics deodorant absorbs quickly into your skin and prevents odor from forming at all.

Other ways you might try using the cream include
  • A scrub for chapped, dry lips.
  • Toothpaste. For a natural whitening effect, use 2 or 3 times per week.
  • A facial scrub.
  • In place of shaving cream.
  • To sooth eczema and mosquito bites.
  • Foot scrub. To alleviate foot odor.
Ruma Organics Deodorant retails for $15.00 for a 4 ounce glass jar, enough to last approximately 2 months. I believe it will even last longer than that, because a regular stick deodorant is only 2.6 oz.

Another thing I like about this product is it's made by a local company based out of Sterling Heights, MI. Ruma Organics Deodorant is available to order online and also at these locations.

We are offering one lucky reader a free jar in their choice of scent. Enter in the form below. Ends 4/16/14.
