Simply Orange review and Flash Giveaway (4 winners)


I love having a cup of orange juice in the mornings with my breakfast. I do not drink artificially flavored beverage which is one of the many reasons I prefer Simply Orange. I love the fact that it is natural juice. It tastes like fresh squeezed orange juice.

Simply beverages are naturally delicious, the way nature intended. The gently pasteurized, not-from-concentrate orange juice never has water, sugar or preservatives added.

In addition to Simply Orange Juice (my personal favorite), they also offer Simply Apple, Simply Grapefruit, Simply Lemonade and Simply Limeade.

For more information on the Simply products please visit and via like them on Facebook.


The generous folks at Simply Orange have given me four free product coupons for my blog readers. The coupons are for one free 59 oz. Simply Orange, Simply Apple, or Simply Grapefruit juice. The coupons expire on 12/31/2011 therefore this is a flash giveaway. This giveaway will end at midnight EST tonight. The winners will be drawn and notified and have one day to send me their mailing addresses so that I can get the coupons in the mail ASAP.

The LG DoublePlay...amazing phone...amazing capabilities!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LG DoublePlay™ for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you looking for an amazing top of the line phone?  If you answered yes, look no further because the LG DoublePlay™ is now available exclusively at T-mobile. 

Features of the LG DoublePlay include:

The LG Doubleplay™ is equipped with dual customizable touch screens, the first is a  ¾ a 3.5-inch main display and the second is a  2.0-inch sub display ¾ that operate independently or in tandem.

The LG DoublePlay also features a  full slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Swype® for easy text input.

The LG DoublePlay™ allows users to perform multiple tasks at once such as updating their Facebook pages while simultaneously surfing the Web, texting or checking email.  How cool is that?

o The LG DoublePlay™ also comes with a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recorder, allowing users to capture and share pictures and videos via messaging, email or Facebook.

o The device also offers multiple messaging options, including Cloud Text™ and Group Text™, giving users the ability to send and receive texts from a PC or tablet or create group chats on-the-go for faster, more efficient content sharing.

o LG DoublePlay™ features Android™ 2.3 (Gingerbread) with access to Android Market™ and delivers complete user customization with seven home screens and up to nine touchscreen shortcuts for one-touch navigation.  Now that's convenient! 

Now that you know a few of the amazing features of the LG DoublePlay, lets talk about what you can do with this amazing device.  Since it has two keyboards and two touch screens you can do multiple activities at one time.  Talk about multi-tasking.  You can check your email while updating your Facebook status. 

I personally send around 200 text messages a month and spend a few hours a week updating my Facebook status and checking my Twitter account so this phone would be amazing for me.  I would love to be able to check Facebook and Twitter at the same time or read multiple text messages at the same time.  I would use the LG DoublePlay all the time especially while cruising around (as a passenger, not driving). 

How would you use this phone?  What features do you love about the phone?  How many hours do you typically spend texting or on Social Media networks like Facebook and Twitter?  Please comment below!

Head over to your local T-Mobile store and check out the LG DoublePlay for yourselves and let me know what you think of it.  Remember the LG DoublePlay is only available at T-Mobile!
