Scotties Facial Tissues are Soft Like Kittens #ScottiesKittens

scotties-tissues

What do Scotties Facial Tissues and kittens have in common? They are both super soft!

In celebration of Scotties new mascot (cute white kittens) and their new box design, Scotties is sponsoring up to $15,000 in adoption fees for select cats and kittens across the country!  They hope this will “act as an incentive for caring people to come forward and open up their homes.”

Being a huge cat lover myself, I am all for this wonderful new partnership and was happy to join in on this review and giveaway opportunity.  I was sent several of the newly designed boxes of Scotties Facial Tissues and have to say, they live up to their reputation of being super soft.  When my allergies are acting up, its nice to have a facial tissue that doesn’t leave my nose raw when I am done blowing it for the hundredth time that day (ok that may be a slight exaggeration but I swear some days it sure feels like its been 100 times).

Make sure you “Like” Scotties on Facebook to keep up with all the latest products and promotions.

Now onto the giveaway….

Review of Vivo Italian Kitchen at Universal City Walk in Orlando

universal city walk

universal city walk

By now, most of you have read my review of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley at Universal Studios and my review of Cabana Bay Beach Resort but I still haven’t told you about one more part of my fun blogger trip…. Universal City Walk !!!

On our first night of our trip, we all got to head over to Universal City Walk which is located within walking distance of both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure theme parks.  It is a huge area filled with tons of restaurants, the AMC Universal Cineplex 20 with IMAX movie theater, Hollywood Drive-In Golf, bars and night clubs, gift shops and more.

vivo-italian-kitchen

For dinner, we ate at Vivo Italian Kitchen which features delightful modern Italian cuisine created from tried and true family recipes.  It has an open kitchen so you will immediately smell freshly baked breads and see chefs mixing sauces, hand-crafting dough, preparing homemade mozzarella, making fresh pasta and sliding piping hot pizzas out of the oven.

vivo-mozzarella

To start our meal, they brought out a plate of hand pulled mozzarella with virgin olive oil, balsamic glaze, olive tapenade and pesto oil.  Everyone at the table LOVED this.  I think near the end we were all fighting over who got the last one.

vivo-jars

Next they brought out tuscan toast and a platter of vasi-mini mason jars (normally you would order them each separately).  The ones they brought us were the Roasted Eggplant, Tomato Mozzarella, and Ricotta w/ Candied Walnuts.  I could have eaten both the Tomato Mozzarella or the Ricotta w/ Candied Walnuts as a whole meal.  WOW they are SUPER DELICIOUS !

Vivo-meals

For our entree, I chose the Parmigiano (chicken parmesan), Kyle chose the Pork Loin with garlic mashed potatoes and Kaley chose the lasagna.  These were all SO good and I would highly recommend any of them.

vivo-desserts

Dessert is always my favorite part of any meal and I was definitely not disappointed with the selection of desserts they brought out for us to try.  I think I dove into them so fast I forgot to listen to what they were (one was some kind of cheesecake and the other was like a lava cake) but trust me, they were amazing !

Whether you are a local or from out of the area, Universal City Walk is a great place to go for an entire evening of fun !
