Choffy Giveaway with 3 winners!!

Have you heard of Choffy?

Choffy is ground cacao beans--you know, the beans they use to make chocolate. But it doesn't have any extra ingredients (such as sugar.) You brew it like coffee. It's chock full of antioxidants, which is nice, and I was shocked to found out that cacao actually has little if any caffeine in it. It actually has theobromine in it, which is a gentler stimulant than caffeine.


One of the great things about Choffy is that you can drink it guilt-free. It brews the same way as coffee, only without the negative caffeine side effects. Cocoa beans are naturally high in Theobromine, antioxidants, Magnesium and Iron. They give you long-lasting energy, which is in stark contract to the temporary liquid energy boost millions of Americans down in the form of coffee each morning.


This is the final result of what it looks like. :)
If you would like more info on Choffy, please visit the Choffy website and click on FAQ. Or you can email Melisa at smile4choffy@hotmail.com too.

Thanks to Melisa, 3 Lucky winners will be able to try out Choffy for themselves!

Seventh Generation giveaway winner!

Seventh Generation giveaway


Did you know that the laundry detergent you may be using could contain little-known chemicals called optical brighteners?
According to scientific research, these can cause allergic reactions, are toxic to small fish and other aquatic life, and can pollute your waterways.

When ultraviolet light hits optical brighteners coating your clothing, the brighteners convert UV rays into visible light to create an optical illusion. This tricks the eye into thinking the clothing is whiter and brighter, and therefore cleaner than it really is.

So how can you avoid these optical brighteners? Seventh Generation makes it easy because their laundry detergents are not only free of optical brighteners, but they´re also non-toxic . In addition, because Seventh Generation liquid laundry detergents are both hypo-allergenic and biodegradable, you can rest easy knowing you made a considerate choice for your family and the environment. We invite you to take part in this Spark and conduct your own experiment to see the difference between your current laundry detergent and Seventh Generation laundry detergent.

When washed in a conventional laundry detergent that contains optical brighteners, clothes appear to glow under a black light. When you use Seventh Generation liquid laundry products, you won´t see the same glow on your clothing.

Here's the difference in 2 shirts - one washed in seventh generation and the other a leading brand.



If you would like a coupon for a $1 off, click here.

This giveaway is for the laundry detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets.
