Georgie & Gwen princess magnet giveaway!

I'm so excited to share this fun giveaway with you all! This giveaway is from Georgie & Gwen, a very sweet mother and daughter team. One of the most amazing things about them is that they are donating $1 from every sale to go to Operation Smile. You can read more about them here on their blog.

Here are a few examples of what they offer:

Cute necklaces



Love these alphabet magnets!



They have lots other magnets too. You can check out more pictures on their facebook page.

This giveaway is for this set of adorable princess magnets!



Here are the ones I received. They will come in a cute tin (styles may vary) which is perfect for giving as a stocking stuffer! Also enclosed is a to/from card, again, making it perfect for gift giving! Jenna absolutely loved these and she immediately went and put them on her picture on my magnet boards.

Crayola Story Studio giveaway!!!

I'm so excited about this giveaway! I know this is something that Jenna is just going to absolutely love! I haven't let her try it out yet because she has gymnastics in a little bit and then there is Thanksgiving, but I wanted to go ahead and get this giveaway up since this could make for a really neat Christmas gift too!


Imagine your child morphing into a coloring book character and starring in a story with a Disney Princess or Spider-Man with Crayola Story Studio or turning an ipad into an interactive coloring book with the Crayola ColorStudio HD app and Crayola imarker digital drawing too. When kids unwrap one of these high tech Crayola gifts this holiday, they'll have fun, new ways to express all that inspires them!
The Story Studio sets lets kids upload a picture of themselves and transforms them into the story. Kids can color it and then make a book! How awesome is that?!? The packages contain everything you need to make your book - colored pencils, markers, glitter glue tubes, story sheets, glossy covers and binding strips.
Also, you can turn your ipad into an interactive coloring book! I think we will definitely be trying this one tonight! The app is free with the purchase of this marker.
This giveaway contains everything you see in the picture - the 3 Story Studio packs and the imarker.
"Disclosure: The Crayola High Tech Holiday prize pack, product information and prize pack for giveaway have been provided by Crayola through MyBlogSpark."
This giveaway will end next Tuesday night, November 29th.
To enter:

Simply leave me a comment. Who will you give this to if you win? Are you buying any other Crayola products for Christmas? Please make sure your email is linked! I can't tell you how many times I've picked a winner that doesn't have an email address listed!

(I'm only going to do one comment/one entry on this giveaway at this time!)

Good Luck! :)

Scentsy Giveaway!

This is such a fun giveaway! I love it! :)

My friend Tara recently joined Scentsy and sent me a few goodies to try out. I have never ever tried Scentsy before, but I was definitely excited to try them out! Now thanks to Tara, my house is smelling like pumpkins in October! It really smells so good that I almost think I have a pumpkin pie in the oven (and, um...I don't think that will ever actually happen.) I think my Bath & Body works plug-ins have just been replaced! ;)

Included in this giveaway is this pumpkin plug-in. You attach a lightbulb (that's included) inside and the heat of the lightbulb is what burns the wax. And seriously, how cute is this pumpkin?!?


AND also included in this awesome giveaway are the two scentsy bars - Autumn Stroll (which also smells fantastic just in the package itself) and the pumpkin marshmallow that I have been using and loving! You will also get an extra light bulb and the grab tabs. The grab tabs make it easier to change out the wax in the plug-ins.

If you have are interested in buying or being a consultant, or just have any questions at all for Tara, please contact her here on her page.

This giveaway will end Wednesday, October 19th.

Sam's club $25 gift card giveaway!

Give back by purchasing your favorite cereal or snack! This October, by making simple everyday purchases at Sam's Club, you can help support breast cancer education and research. Beginning September 19th, Sam's Club stores will feature exclusive pink packaging on some of your favorite participating General Mills products in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

  • For 5 years, General Mills has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Foundation to bring breast cancer support to local communities, and this year they are making their annual donation of $2 million to the foundation to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects.

  • Purchase specially-marked General Mills products like Cheerios and Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies at your local Sam´s Club and help decide how half of that contribution will be donated by voting at PinkTogether.com from now until April 14, 2012.

  • General Mills´ donations will be divided between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Voting results will be announced on Mother´s Day 2012.

  • This giveaway is for a Sam's Club $25 gift card!

    Fiber One Cereal giveaway!

    Do you struggle to incorporate fiber into your everyday life? If so, you are not alone! Nine out of 10 Americans aren’t getting enough fiber – an alarming statistic, considering how important fiber is for overall health.

    The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans say people should consume 25-38 grams of fiber daily, and that the average American consumes only 15 grams. What’s amazing is that incorporating fiber into your diet can be effortless and definitely delicious, with Fiber One cereals offering at least 30 percent of the Daily Value per serving. (Some Fiber One cereals offer more than 50 percent!) Fiber One Original® and flavored varieties like Honey Clusters®, Raisin Bran Clusters®, Caramel Delight®, and Shredded Wheat®, make fiber taste good and help to give people a jumpstart on their fiber intake each day.


    Let your taste buds be your guide and let Fiber One take care of the fiber. Getting fiber in foods you love doesn’t have to be a struggle when there are delicious honey clusters, plump and juicy raisins, caramel-flavored whole wheat squares, or whole grain shredded wheat biscuits with frosting that make it taste amazing.

    Visit Fiber One online for great information on healthy living and additional ways to incorporate fiber into your diet. Also, be sure to check out the Fiber One Facebook page and get involved in the conversation.

    Download a printable coupon for $0.75 off the purchase of any (1) Fiber One cereal today!






    This giveaway is for all 5 boxes of Fiber One Cereal!!! What a great giveaway!! This giveaway will end on Tuesday, June 21st.
