DVD Review : JERICHO Series 1

“Satisfyingly set-up potboiler…cinematically epic” —Forbes

Acorn TV’s new British Western stars Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife, Wolf Hall, Agatha Christie’s Partners in Crime) as Annie Quaintain, a widowed mother-of-two who is forced to start a new life in the remote town of Jericho in the rugged Yorkshire landscape. She is able to find a home for her family, but must also provide lodging for the rowdy railroad workers passing through. When handsome worker Johnny Jackson (Hans MathesonThe Tudors) shows up on her door, he brings with him a load of trouble that could threaten Annie’s new life. Love, loss, and intrigue abound in this British western set in 1870s Yorkshire. The atmospheric 8-part period drama co-stars Clarke Peters (The Wire) with guest star Mark Addy (The Full Monty, Game of Thrones) (3-disc set,. $59.99). Premiered and available on Acorn TV.

My Thoughts 

Jericho is a exciting series set in  in Yorkshire in the 1870s. Annie is a widow forced to sell her home after her husband dies. She eventually sets up a lodging house in Jericho where she has to deal with some pretty shady characters. Everyone seems to have something to hide, and Annie doesn't always know who to trust. Just when she thinks she is going to have a fresh start, a serious crime jeopardizes her new path in life. This series includes eight great episodes. Here is a little about each one: 

1- Annie heads to Culverdale Valley, but it's not an easy road.

2- Things already get wild and a detective is in search of someone trying to sabotage the new railway. 

3- Racial tensions are fueled and a possible wedding of convenience could take place. 

4- Annie struggles with her family affairs and the investigation continues.

5- Financial issues put a strain on the community. 

6- A new quarry is needed but the location stirs more trouble.

7- A murder suspect is held in the tavern until his trial.

8 - Things are looking up for the viaduct and Annie's love life. A great end to the first season.
I really enjoyed this series. It was exciting and I love the rue historical elements. I definitely want to see Series 2!  The costumes and scenario were all very realistic, and the acting is suburb.  If you'd like to grab a copy of this fantastic series for yourself, you can find it online at Amazon or on Acorn Media.

Get Ready for Fall with Trendy Butler

There are lots of fashion subscription boxes out there, but not many that are geared towards men. There are even fewer that have the ability to appeal to men of all ages, even teenagers! It doesn't matter if your taste runs to preppy or grudge, casual or formal, Trendy Butler can design a box suited to your personal style.

My son is fourteen and he is almost impossible to shop for. He considers himself "emo" and likes to wear a lot of of black and gray. He's not big on logos or graphics tees. You'd think simple black would be easy, but sometimes it's hard to find! Thankfully, Trendy Butler was able to put together a fantastic package that my son just loves. They do it by asking all the right questions, and then hand-selecting products suited to your personal style. No two people are alike, so why should every subscription be the same? With Trendy Butler, you can have a box designed with one special guy in mind.

Our package arrived beautifully packaged with completely recyclable materials, which is always an  important factor to me. Of course,  what was inside was even better. There were two fantastic pieces, each of which was a great addition to my son's emo wardrobe.

The first piece is a light weight jacket designed by Cohesive & Co. It has a sporty look that he just loves.  It's just the right weight for fall, and it's also small enough to tuck away in his locker or his book bag.

Last but not least, we have this cozy sweatshirt from Prism. It it so soft and cozy, I was tempted to steal it.  It's also the perfect way for him to stay warm, since for some reason teenagers feel that winter jackets are just for old people...He likes it so much, he's even sleeping in  it.

My son was thrilled with all his new clothing! Don't let the lack of a smile fool you. That's just goes along with being emo.  He finally got all the black he was craving. Of course, these styles are only one of dozens of options at Trendy Butler. Each month will be a surprise, but you'll find great items like button downs, chico pants, shorts, and so much more. If you'd like to check outTrendy Butler for yourself, be sure to visit their website or check them out on their social media social.

Review: Vero Brava Non Slip Headbands

Who wants headband headaches and headbands that slip?  Nobody! Vero Brava headbands are designed so they are both non-slip and really comfortable. Vero Brava headbands are also seamless and stretchy conforming to heads of all sizes, resulting in less bad hair days and greater comfort. Most likely you'll forget you're even wearing it.


Style the headband to suit your mood, hairstyle, or activity. Wear it wide or thin or anywhere in between. Rock it turban style, folded, boho chic or scrunched just to name a few options! One size fits all ages 2 to 102. Adjustable width from 5" to 1"


Vero Brava headbands all have a unique comfort system that channels moisture away from your head keeping you cool and dry during the most strenuous workout. All headbands are handmade from a super high-quality cotton, polyester spandex/lycra blend. Great for the gym or as a fashion accessory, each headband is meticulously hand-crafted for the perfect fit.


High quality and super soft stretchy material wicks the sweat away for all-day comfort. Keep it as a sports headband or rock a fashion headband look.


It's a Vero Brava mandate that we make you look great! With loads of ways to wear the Vero Brava 10-1 Headband, and a wide range of colors and prints, you're set to rock a gorgeous style that works for you. Wear it running, at yoga, during a workout, on your travels, for the latest fashion look or spruce up your favorite floppy hat by using it as a hat band - it's that versatile!


Wear it to cover your ears on cool or windy days, as a sweat headband on warmer days, or double it up on really chilly days (or lazy hair days!). This headband is super practical as well as gorgeous. Pro Tip... Dip it in ice water before your workout!

Vero Brava happily accepts all returns and exchanges within 30 days of purchase, no reason needed! Machine wash cold with like colors for best results! Do not iron or bleach.

Your purchase helps us donate more headbands to children suffering from cancer. Throughout the world, a child is diagnosed with cancer every 4 minutes and one in five will not survive. The Vero Brava family has been an adamant benefactor of the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation for many years and in addition to that support, we wanted to make a difference on an individual basis. It's amazing how something as simple as a headband can change a sick child's demeanor. Another scary day in the hospital is suddenly a lot brighter and frowns turn to smiles instantly.

VISIT VERO BRAVA on social media:


I don't generally wear headbands because they either slip, or give me a headache.   But sometimes, it's nice to just get the hair out of my face. Or like today, where I NEEDED to have my hair out of my face. 

You can't see the Vero Brava headband, but trust me, it's under there doing it's job keeping my hair out of the blast zone.

See, we just got torrential rains and serious flooding in our area over the last couple of days.  This means, yes, you guessed it! Water in the basement! Yay! (not!) We are lucky, though, we're in a higher end of town so were just dealing with a clogged drain so the water coming in had nowhere to go. But unclogging a drain with standing water can be a messy, messy thing.  And when you're getting splattered with god-knows-what, you want your hair out of your face and you want it to stay there!  I'm super glad the Vero Brava headbands are washable, and now I'm extra thankful.  In case you've ever wondered, a 55 gallon trash bag makes a rather nice plastic dress you can use to cover your clothing so it doesn't get messy.

I love the versatility of these headbands!  Vero Brava offers both their cotton/lyrca & high performance headbands in a lot of different  fun prints. You can wear them so many different ways - on your head and around your neck, or even turn it into a pony tail holder.  My two favorites:
Hair down:

Hair up:

I wear a headband/visor every morning walking the dog.  Wearing a visor helps cut the sun's glare, so I don't need sunglasses.  Which is nice, because #1, no sun glare, and #2, when I'm on a hard walk (we don't walk slow!) I'm not constantly adjusting them as they slip.  And #3, I can put the headband part of the visor over my ears on cooler, windy days. My current headband/visor is getting stretched out after a year's use so I am super glad to see Vero Brava offers these things!

Vero Brava does some cool things - for instance, every headband purchased helps Vero Brava donate headbands to children suffering from cancer. 

And, you can get your very own FREE Vero Brava headband!
Vero Brava knows you'll love your headband so much that you'll be back for more!  First time customers can receive a no-strings-attached black non-slip headband.  Shop their website at  Buy 2 and get one FREE, and get FREE shipping on all purchases within the US and Canada!

#Notorious - Discover the Story Behind the Story

Did you catch the premiere of Notorious last night? If not, you missed out on something great. The series centers around two unique characters named Jake and Julia.  Julia is a top rated investigative news producer. Jack is a high powered lawyer. When they come together, they mix law and media in a sexy interplay of scandal, drama, and the twisty exploration of what it means to make the news.

Julia is a strong female character still reeling from a bad breakup with a judge. She worked hard to get where she is, but still has a down-to-earth attitude, Jack is a little more mysterious and there will most likely be secrets revealed about this past over the course of the first season

The pilot episode centered around the hit-and-run of a teenage boy by a well-known millionaire. Police later suspect he's covering for this wife,  but just when the police were closing in, she turned up dead.  I can't saw more without giving away spoilers, but this is a series that I won't be missing. I already have it programmed into my DVR. I enjoyed the show because it's giving us a look at crime from a different perspective.  There are dozens of crime dramas out there that give us a forensic view. This one gives us the perspective of the media and show us how they can twist a story to suit their needs as well as giving us a look at how the criminal attorneys think.

This is an exciting new series, made even more interesting because it was inspired by real people. If you missed the premiere, it's not too late to catch up. Be sure to catch next week's episode. Notorious airs every Thursday at 9|8c on ABC right after Grey's Anatomy
