Looking your best with Abreva, and an Amazon giveaway!

Default post image

If you’re like me (or the other 80 million Americans), around the holidays I break out with terrible cold sores. They’re the absolute worst, and super hard to cover up with makeup. I find myself covering up my face when talking to my guests when I’m having an outbreak. It makes me miserable!

But this normally only happens when I run out of Abreva, the awesome Cold Sore Remedy that literally erases away the cold sore and soothes the pain brought on by it. I love how well it works, and how it gives me my confidence back to put my best face forward. As a huge plus, Abreva is the only over-the-counter cold sore remedy that’s approved by the FDA and is clinically proven to shorten the life of a cold sore. Abreva also helps block the virus from spreading to healthy cells. Abreva speeds healing like a prescription but without one. Basically, it can shorten the healing time of your cold sore much like a prescription would, but without the hassle of a prescription. Apply Abreva directly to your cold sore at the first sign of a tingle, redness, bump or itch for best results.  Abreva is recommended for adults and children 12 years and over, and should be used exactly as directed: five times a day until your cold sore is healed, for a maximum of 10 days. Remove any cosmetics prior to applying Abreva. If you wish, you can apply cosmetics such as lipstick over Abreva (which is a huge plus in my opinion). And always wash your hands with soap and warm water before and after treating your cold sore. Talk to your pharmacist to get the best treatment advice.4 It’s also important to talk to your pharmacist or healthcare professional if a cold sore lasts more than 10 days, or if you’re not sure the sore you see and feel is actually a cold sore.

Next time you have a cold sore, try Abreva® risk free.  If you aren’t completely satisfied with Abreva® for any reason, save your receipt and remaining product, and call 1-877-709-3539 to get your money back.

And now for the giveaway!

To win a $25 Amazon Gift Code: all you have to do is comment below, telling me how you put your best face forward during the holidays!

Super easy, and the winner will be chosen on Monday, January 7, 2013 (um, how did it get here SO fast??) by random.org. The winner will have 24 hours to contact me with their information. Thanks, and good luck!

A few of my favorite things: The TimeMug

 Today I am featuring an item that I absolutely love, and can’t live without! The TimeMug is a stylish, affordable and practical coffee mug for both men and women who are on the go! Especially for those who can’t or don’t like to wear watches.

TimeMug’s patented design is a 16-ounce, DISHWASHER SAFE (yeah moms, I totally yelled this- because it’s true!!) time-telling mug that is ideal for both hot and cold beverages. It has a tapered bottom, so it fits in even the strangest cup holder. I drive a Chevy Trailblazer which has the smallest cup holders that I’ve ever seen, and the TimeMug fits perfectly!

The TimeMug also comes in a pretty package, and just needs a bow to top it off. It literally makes the best and easiest gift!

20121119-105248.jpg

Available in 17 colors across several collections (though there aren’t any polka dots-yet!), TimeMug is perfect for on-the-go moms, dads, executives, teachers and everyone in between who wants to make a fashion statement.

 

The TimeMug has been featured in the media on outlets such as the Today Show and E News, they are popular with many celebrities and also make a great holiday gift. All of my “teacher friends” love my TimeMug, and I can’t go anywhere without getting a compliment on it. Also, TimeMug’s Hope collection supports breast cancer awareness! It’s a mug that does good.

A real celebrity. Holding the TimeMug. For real.

Girls Crochet Headbands: A fashionable review and giveaway!

Default post image

Recently I was asked by Girls Crochet Headbands to do a review and giveaway for them. Little did I know that they soon would become my FAVORITE new online store for girls’ and women accessories (if you’re looking for the perfect pin-up flower that photographs well at an amazing price, definitely check them out)! Obviously I love them for their prices, but I also love them for their customer service. They are very active on Facebook and Twitter– answering questions and keeping you up to date on their latest products. They’re also all over Pinterest (hello, lovah!). I love love their pins, so make sure you follow their boards!

When I received the bows, flowers, headbands and hat I was blown away by the quality and attention to detail. So much so, that I actually went to their website and ordered more (yes, on my own dime-full disclosure FTW!). The prices are CRAZY awesome! I bought a hat, one flower, two bows and one headband for $10 and that included shipping! FOR REAL!

So here’s what I received for my review:

Large White Bow

Halloween Flower Clip

Gerber Daisy Three Tone Flower Clip

Gerber Daisy Hot Pink/Zebra Flower Clip

Which you can also check out my kiddo wearing them in my photo below! They are absolutely adorable, photograph well and are stunning in person. My daughter gets compliments all the time about them. Honestly, we can’t go anywhere without someone stopping us to tell her how pretty her bow and/or flower is! The colors are bright and they are put together very well (the quality is consistent). They all have alligator clips, which at first I was really worried about (M has super-thick hair) but they are quite “grippy” and hold all day long- through school, drum lessons- all the way to bed time! M also says they’re very comfortable to wear. She says they’re light and they hold well so she doesn’t worry about them falling out at all, even on the playground.

and I also received the Black Kufi Hat which is so versatile! I love how you can add any bow or flower to it. We had a lot of fun playing around with it. The kufi hat really is the best fall accessory, and comes in so many colors! We loved it so much, that we ordered a pink one. BUT (and here’s my only complaint) the sizing wasn’t consistent. The black kufi hat was quite a bit smaller than the pink, and both times we ordered a large. They do stretch, but the pink was considerably larger. But I wouldn’t let that stop you from ordering it, because like I mentioned, they stretch to fit.

UPDATE: 9/13 2:22pm Girls Crochet Headbands sent me this comment (which just PROVES how awesome their customer service is!): “Just a note about the sizing on the Kufi hats. They are all handmade and do vary some in size. We also get them from a couple of different manufacturers so when they come in, we sort them in size groups as close as we can to each other, but you are right – there are variations! And you are also right that they stretch”.

Now for the giveaway: one winner will receive 5 items of their choice from GirlsCrochetHeadbands.com! All you have to do is…
1) Mandatory: Head over to the Girls Crochet Headbands website and look around. Then come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite GCH item is (I know, it’s hard to narrow it down!).

For extra entries you can also:

2) “Like”GCH on Facebook, then leave a separate comment letting me know you did.

3) Follow GCH on Pinterest (they’re pinning so many awesome things!) and leave me a separate comment letting me know you did.

4) Follow GCH on Twitter and leave me a separate comment letting me know you did.

*A winner will be chosen at 10:00am on Friday, September 21st by Random.org. Good luck!

**I was provided with the above items to facilitate my review.
