Giveaway Grabber-Price Pfister Faucets

  Seriously, remodeling can be fun yet time consuming. I love remodeling but it takes soooo long. We bought our house 12 years ago and we have remodeled little by little. After those long 12 years we still aren't done. So far we have taken out a wall between the livingroom and a bedroom to make our living room huge. We've done the bathroom and a couple of bedrooms. The only thing we have left to do is the kitchen but it's soooo expensive.What floor do we want? What counters will look best? Well, one thing we've decided on is the faucet. I LOVE the look of the Avanti faucet in Tuscan Bronze by Pfister . The Tuscan Bronze looks awesome!!! Well before I buy it I try to win it. Why not right. During my search I found Experimental Mommy hosting a giveaway for a Price Pfister faucet!!! The winner will have their choice of the Avanti, Elevate EXT, Alina, or Rembrant. This giveaway ends March 10. You have unlimited tweet entries if you have 50 Twitter followers or more. I like the unlimited tweet thing but I will only tweet a couple times a day. I wouldn't want to lose Twitter followers by spamming them. Good Luck!!!

Giveaway Grabber-Knork

 Okay so my  kids are always losing silverware. I mean always. I don't understand where it goes so we are always buying the cheapest silverware one can buy. I've come to think that maybe that's the problem. Maybe since they know I buy the cheap stuff then it doesn't matter if they use them to dig dirt. I'm wondering if I bought something nice like Knork then maybe they'd know better :) Well guess what, Trying To Stay Calm is hosting a giveaway right now for Knork flatware. Maybe I should try my luck huh?
Giveaway ends March 1st

What Is A Blog Giveaway?


    I've had a lot of family and friends ask what a blog or blog giveaway is.  This page is for people who have NO idea what a blog, blog giveway, twitter, or one of my faves, Swagbucks. I'm by far not a pro but hopefully I can help you out a little and maybe, just maybe, you can win prizes like I have.

     First off what is a blog you ask...A blog can be anything you want it to be. It can be a personal diary where you keep track of your daily life. I have seen some blogs where it is a grandmother writing to her grandchild with lots of photos of him growing up. I wish I had known about blogging back when my kiddies were little. What a perfect gift it would be for a child.

    Some people use a blog to promote their business or promote other business. This is where giveaways come in. Say a company like Blingstrands has a new product coming out (which they do and I will be working with them). They will send me an item such as Bling Jewels to try out at home. I will use them in our every day life. Take pictures and do a little write-up on if I liked them or not. I will give my honest opinion on their product. In return for posting the review on my blog they will give me Bling Strands to giveaway on my blog to one of my readers. This is where YOU come in.

    Most blog giveaways have a Mandatory entry. This means you MUST do this step first in order to gain one entry into the giveaway. It can be as simple as following their blog or commenting on the review. After you do the mandatory entry there are usually Extra entries you can do. This is where you will gain the most entries. These can be liking a facebook page (which is touchie now because fb doesn't like us using them for that purpose), following on twitter, or commenting on a post. It can really be anything the company or blogger wants you to do. Most blogs also want you to include your email address in ALL comments. This is so we can contact the winner.

    On the bottom of the review/giveaway you will see when the giveaway ends. It will also tell you how the winner is picked. The winner is usually picked by which is what I use. Say I do a giveaway that had 223 entries. I will go to and put in the number 1 in the top box and the number 223 in the bottom box. I then push Generate and Random will pick a Random number (hum go figure right). If random were to pick 104 I would go back to my blog and see who had the comment 104 and that would be my winner. I then contact the winner by email. I have their email address because hopefully they left it in the comment with their entry. They will usually have 2 to 3 days to respond to my email. Once they have emailed me back I will forward all their information to the sponsor of the giveaway and they would send the winner their prize.

    If I win a giveaway I always shoot the blog host an email letting them know I got received my prize. I figure if they went to all the trouble of hosting a giveaway the least I can do is thank them and let them know I got it.

Now you know what a blog giveaway is. Watch for details on HOW to enter coming soon.........If you have any questions or if this helped please comment below. I read all comments and would love your feedback.

Yo Yo Lipgloss Giveaway

I filled out a form :)

Have you ever opened your mail box to find a package  and said to yourself,  " Oh yeah, I remember signing up for that."  Well, that is the case here. I remember a few months ago visiting Yo Yo Lipgloss and signing up for something. I thought is was for a blog review or something of that matter. Well, guess what.....I opened the mailbox the other day and look what was in a special little package. I received 4 Yo Yo Lip gloss minis. There was no letter with the package explaining WHY they sent them. Just  their 4 YoYo Lip gloss minis. Well needless to say I was a bit excited and couldn't wait for our girls to try them so here's how it went.

I was sent four flavors: Girly Green Apple , Kissable Kiwi , Big Bounce Bubblegum ,and Cha Cha Chocolate . I decided I'd let both Ivy and Addison pick one out.

Ivy picked out Cha-Cha Chocolate and couldn't wait to snap it on her pocket. She wasn't thrilled with the taste at first but it grew on her. I figured after a couple of days she'd get tired of it and toss it on her dresser with all the other lip gloss' she has aquired but that's not the case. She wears it everywhere and loves it. Her words exactly "Mom look, I'm GLOSSIFIED" Yes, I had to laugh at her new word and the way she says it.
Here is a picture of Ivy all Glossified :)

Addison picked out Big Bounce Bubblegum. Unlike Ivy, Addison loved the taste right away. After applying her lip gloss her first words were ," MMMM Minty". Even though it is bubble gum flavor I have to admit it is a bit "minty" and it really is yummy.  I thought that the Yo Yo part would break after a few pulls but let me tell you that Addison doesn't leave it alone. She is always pulling and letting it fly back. It is still like brand new.

Miss shiney lips :) And no her teeth aren't really that yellow. She had just eaten an orange.

SOOOO, I have two left over Yo Yo Lip gloss minis. Hummmm, what should I do with them?  Well heck, I'll give them to one of you of course. Here's what you need to do:

Up for grabs are Girly Green Apple and Kissable Kiwi

Handmade With Love Giveaway!!!

I am very excited to announce my sponsor for the Handmade With Love giveaway is Bauble Bath . I'm not the girly girl type that uses a lot of lotions and bath salts but then I discovered Bauble Bath and all of their soaps, bath salts, melts, scrubs, and more. I had previously won a $50 give code to her shop and had no clue what I would buy so I went over to the Bauble Bath  store and went shopping.  I work a lot of hours away from home so I was hoping that I could find something to make me relax and take away all the days tension out of my neck and back. Because I'm not the girly girl type and had no clue what to look for it took me a day or two to actually pick out what I wanted.  I picked a couple of soaps , melts , scrubs , and bath salts  not really knowing what to expect.

 When all my goodies arrived I could smell everything inside before I even opened it. I was a bit worried because when I did open the box the smell was very strong and I was thinking it wouldn't be for me. Boy was I wrong. I seperated everything and was wondering what kind of bath I wanted to take first.

  My absolute favorite is the Lavendar Sea Salt. I sprinkled a little in my tub and felt like I was in heaven. I seriously could not believe the effect it had on me. The tension in my neck totally went away after about ten minutes and the smell was amazing. I have to say that it was the most amazing bath I had ever taken.

I actually feel like a girly girl now when I use the Lavendar Sea Salt. I love all the little flakes of lavendar that float around me as I relax. Bauble Bath is definately the place I will shop when I want to find great products that make me relax....

About Bauble Bath: they are a small home based business located in Coer d'Alene, Idaho. Though home based, their products are made and packaged in a shop just steps from their back door. They use food grade when possible and cosmetic grade when nessesary in their  ingredients and try to keep things as natural as possible while allowing their products  to be fun and interesting.

Now for the fun part!!! Sarah over at Bauble Bath has offered one of my special readers, not one,  but five bath bombs of their choice.  This is such an awesome prize I have to admit I'm a little jeolous!
