Smoothie King Giveaway!!!



Have you heard of Smoothie King? They offer nutritious smoothie meals, refreshing fruit smoothies and even veggie blends! I browsed their menu to find they offer different supplements, vitamins and even trim down supplements. You can also find a wide varity of snacks, smoothies, enhancers and other supplements on their menu.

One of the things I noticed while browsing the site...was the attention they had to serving those with special diets. As a mother of a child who is allergic to any kind of nuts and coconut, it's so refreshing to see a company catering to others that are in the same boat. Among the many options you can find when making your smoothie you can opt for it to be corn, dairy, egg, fat, gluten or vegan free. That speaks volumes to me on their customer service.

From the site you can make your own smoothie (you can get a feel of the different flavors they offer and things you would like to add), sign up for their emails, and they even have a Smoothie King app!

Here's where the great news comes in....Would you like to try Smoothie King? They have been so generous to offer our blog readers with FREE 10.00 gift cards. There will be multiple winners to this giveaway. The giveaway will run from 4/11/14 to 4/13/14. All winners will be notified via email.

Bath and Body Works Mini Candle Giveaway!!!

Recently, my oldest daughter and I decided to start collecting candles. We figured it's a great hobby to have, makes the house smell awesome and there's something about a candle that just relaxes you. We recently placed an order for 7 mini candles, from Bath and Body works,  that included:

Lemon Drops
Frosted Cupcake
Market Peach
Hawaiian Hibiscus
Bubble Gum
Honeysuckle
Raspberry peach Macaron

With this order you could include the code ALLNEW and receive a FREE 6.50 hand soap. I decided to with Meyer lemon and pair it with the Lemon Drops candle. If you have not tried BBW candles...I urge you to try them! The quality in their candles is just awesome and the scents are amazing. I decided to go with the minis first because I am new to collecting candles. I wanted to try the scents first and then pick out the bigger 3 wick and mason jar candles later. Even the mini candles have a great scent throw. I can not imagine how great the full size candles are.

Today you can still place orders for the mini candles at 3/10.00 and if you enter code DELIGHT at check out, you can take 25% off your total order!!!!

If you are interested in our BBW haul, you can view our Youtube video here:

I have a new haul coming up with a few more minis (they are on sale for 3/10.00) and 3 full sized candles.

**UPDATE ABOUT THIS ORDER** I discovered that one of the items I purchased last night went on sale this morning. The full sized 3 wick candles are on sale right now for 2/22.00. That is a HUGE sale on these!!!! You can also use promo code DELIGHT at checkout for another 25% off. I called customer service and asked could I cancel my previous order (if it had not been packed and shipped), so I could take advantage of today's sale. They informed me they could not cancel my order, but they would give me an 11.00 credit (which basically gives me today's deal on last night's order. I ordered a full sized 3 wick last night.) How awesome is that? This company makes great products and has great customer service. So I did end up using the 11.00 credit with the 25% off credit and purchased 2 of the 3 wicks. I think the total was around 5.50 before shipping. Yay!

Now to the best part about this blog!!!! We are doing a giveaway to celebrate our new hobby!!! My daughter Lilly Rose picked this scent out and it is quite amazing. The scent description per site:
Hawaiian Hibiscus 1.3 oz. Mini Candle - Slatkin & Co. - Bath & Body Works

Brooklyn Popcorn Review and Giveaway!

Brooklyn Popcorn Company

Recently I was given the opportunity to review a tin of popcorn from the Brooklyn Popcorn Company. We decided to go with caramel popcorn and dill pickle popcorn. I know what you are thinking...dill pickle? I have to say that this flavor is actually very good in popcorn form. It kind of reminded me of a salt and vinegar potato chip with a hint of dill. The flavor was not overwhelming at all. Very light and great for that "salty" late night snack fix you may have.

The caramel popcorn was just awesome. The only way to describe this flavor is a rich and gourmet version of Crunch N Munch. Once you start snacking on this one...you can't stop!!! Out of the two popcorn flavors we received, to review, this one was by far the family favorite.

Overall, I was extremely happy with their popcorn. The product was fresh, not overwhelming with each flavor, fast shipping and the packing was just wonderful! Here is a picture of the reusable tin it came in:

Margo's Magnificent Choice and Tacky box review.



Recently I was asked to do a review for Margo's magnificent Choice and Tacky box review. The author is Chris Kent Phelps.

The set come with Margo's Magnificent Choice book and an authentic wooden Tacky box (which has a Tacky box pad of paper tucked away in it). The book is beautifully illustrated and the Tacky box is sturdy and you can personalize it to make your own. My girls really enjoyed adding their on personal touch of stickers and writing their names with paint markers.

First, we read the book of Margo's Magnificent Choice. You follow a little girl monkey name Margo through her adventure in the jungle. You learn of Margot's choice of vocabulary and the consequences she faces with using "not so nice" words. She learns how she affects the feelings of those around her. I thought the book had a great moral to the story. My girls understood that using hurtful words can really hurt others. They also enjoyed looking at the pictures as they followed the story. I have to say the book really opened up a great discussion of words that have either been said to them or they have used in the past. It lead us to a conversation of things that are appropriate to say to others and things we should keep to ourselves.

Second, came putting our Tacky box to use. We were able to write down any words that they feel uncomfortable with floating around in their head. They loved the idea of writing them down, getting them out of their head and putting them away in the box.

Overall, I found the set to be a very hands on and awesome family activity. It opens the doors for your children to talk to you about their peer relationships and really open up on their feelings.

I've put together a list of ways you can learn more about Chris Kent Phelps and The Tacky Box.

Donating to Locks of Love.

Some of you may know that my old computer crashed a bit ago and I was waiting to buy a new one. My husband surprised me with a laptop for Valentine's day, so here I am!

I thought I would make this post special and it really is. My oldest daughter, Lilly Rose, asked if she could donate her hair to Locks of love. She was so excited to donate her hair to help out other children and I was so inspired by her request. She really is a kid with a big heart and compassion to help others. Every so often we have Mommy and daughter date night (Idea I got from one of the Secret keeper girl books) and tonight was our date night. Emma Kay and I decided to show our support by donating our hair too!

Here are some photos of our adventure and please scroll to the bottom...I will be posting all the information you need to donate to Locks of love and maybe this sounds like a great date night with your daughters, as well.


 
Here are our before photos. Locks of Love requires that you donate
a minimum of 10 inches.
 


 
 
This was Emma Kay's first ever hair cut!
 


 
 
 
The person who inspired it all!!! Our sweet Lilly Rose. The bottom photo is
the pony tails we donated...ready to be sealed and shipped. Locks of love requires a
minimum of 10 inches.
 

 
The girls are all smiles after their hair cuts. They absolutely LOVE them. They look
so cute!
 

 
The end result. Mine is a little shorter than I am use to, but I keep
telling myself it will grow back and we did it for a wonderful cause..I'm
also glad I was able to show my support to Lilly Rose's interests and what the Lord
has put on her heart.
 
If you are interested in donating to Locks of love you can visit this link:
 


 
 
Here are some qualifications of donating (Per site, not written by me):
 
 
GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTABLE DONATIONS
  • Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.
  • Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid.
  • Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable.  If unsure, ask your stylist. We are not able to accept bleached hair due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process. **If the hair was bleached years ago and has completely grown out it is fine to donate.
  • Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable because it is not bundled in a ponytail or braid.
  • Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable. If shaving your head, first divide hair into multiple ponytails to cut off.
  • We cannot accept dreadlocks. Our manufacturer is not able to use them in our children’s hairpieces. We also cannot accept wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair.
  • Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches. 
  • Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails.
  • Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches.
  • 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece.
  • Printable Guidelines (PDF) Please Note:

  • Shorter hair will be separated from the ponytails and sold to offset the manufacturing costs. Although the shorter hair cannot be used in the hairpieces, it still greatly helps to reduce costs.
  • Gray hair will be accepted and sold to offset the manufacturing costs.
  • Colored hair is not usable if it is colored over bleached hair.
  • Because Locks of Love creates custom hairpieces for each child, we are unable to accept donations of wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair.
