CSN Stores $45 Gift Card Giveaway 1/25 - WINNER CLOSED


dvice12 said...

I follow. I like the baby and kids store.

An e-mail will be sent after I post and he/she has 48 hours to respond before a new winner has been chosen.

Thanks to all those who entered!

I managed to take down most of the Christmas decorations and after taking down everything, I noticed how bare my walls are and with getting ready to put the house on the dreary market, I realized how bad they need a make over.  I have had months of experience with CSN Stores given that they have over 200 online stores where you can find anything you need whether it be wall art and decorfitness equipment, or even cute cookware!  It's really a great place to shop for hundreds of items.

All Modern

I think the hardest part is figuring out what to purchase.  I have only one mirror and those really dress up a room's atmosphere with the right shape and size.  I also have quite a few pictures but I'm lacking a few in the dining room.  There are over 600 different types of mirrors to choose from but here are some of my favorites:

Reflecting Design Dorian 24 Convex Wall Mirror Nexxt Hollister Mirror with Frame in Dark Veneer 

The nice thing is there are so many great ways to search for the perfect mirror whether it's by price, size, style, frame and more.

There are even wall stencils that would really dress up my grandchild's room.  The variety is endless and knowing that I can decorate an entire room from one store is a bonus for me.  I love to shop but I don't want to have to order items from many stores and prefer a one stop shop like All Modern.

Dream Catcher Kids Fanciful Fairies Self-Adhesive Wall Stencil Kit Dream Catcher Kids Perfectly Princess Self-Adhesive Wall Stencil Kit

The Giveaway:

I'm sure you will find a ton of items you would like to buy at the huge array of stores by CSN Stores and now you get a chance to win a $45 gift certificate to use at any of the stores.

To Enter:

Brugo: A Perfect Degree of Taste Mugs Review & Giveaway 8/4 - WINNER CLOSED



An e-mail has just been sent!


How many times have you burned your mouth on a cup of hot coffee or cocoa?  I listen to my husband slurp as he drinks his (which is annoying so if you are reading, honey ....).   I normally steer clear of hot drinks as I have no patience to wait so I go without but I know others, like my husband, would absolutely LOVE the Brugo Mug.  

Here is how the Brugo Mug is different:

The cooling chamber at the top works because you are separating the sip from the main chamber, the “brandy swilling” motion cools that sip in the top chamber. Most people use them for travel whether that be in the car, train or bus, in the office, at the home and especially by new mothers.  Brugo offers an immediate solution to drinking tea and coffee on the go, in the office and at home. You can drink any hot beverage immediately... yes... no more having to wait 20 minutes for you first sip.  This would be ideal for my husband and I'll be sending him one all the way in Kuwait!

Not only is the Brugo Mug different from the technology aspect but they have a mug to fit your personality or lifestyle.  From the Jazz/Executive Series to the Sports Collection, your Brugo Mug should be the envy of others once they learn how cool it is.  I prefer the Jazz/Executive series due to the colors and sophisticated appearance.

The Brugo Mug is simple as you tip and sip.  The liquid quickly enters the Brugo's patented Temperature Control Chamber and is instantly adjusted to the perfect temperature while keeping the remaining liquid hot.  There are three options for using the Brugo Mug:  Lock to prevent spills, Tip & Cool to drink on the spot and Sip.  You can see the Brugo Mug in action here.  I tried it out and it works just as it states it does and it really looks upscale and trendy.  I may not send it to my husband after all!  It washes nicely, does well in the dishwasher and looks amazingly fashionable!   I would recommend the Brugo Mug to any hot drinker whether at home, on the way to work out or in an office environment.  Where else can you drink something hot on the spot without scalding yourself?  

Here is something also great for my international readers, you can get the Brugo Mug as Brugo is an international company in spite of being American!  

Right now, you can save when you buy two or more at $14.95 each versus $19.95 for one and free shipping on orders over $50.

The giveaway:

Your very own stylish, fashionable, trendy and cool Brugo Mug.

To Enter:

Just follow my blog and tell me what color you would pick.

SoundBeginnings by Creative Baby, Inc Review & Giveaway Coming Soon!

Having a baby is such an exciting moment in anyone's life and with the increase of technology and new advancements, there are so many options available.  For years I have heard and read the benefits of music to the unborn and although I wasn't very good at exposing my unborn children to music, the options to do so now are amazing.  Creative Baby, Inc has a great new product called Sound Beginnings.  It's a device that fits around the expecting mother's belly and has a pocket for an MP3 player.  

My lucky daughter had a chance to try out the Sound Beginnings device and even before she received it, she was excited to try it out as this is her first child.  The Sound Beginnings Pre-Natal Sound Delivery Device is very comfortable.  It's made of nylon/lycra with a built-in speakers that allows her to play music, voice or any other soothing sound she likes via her iPod or any MP3 player.

No batteries are required since the band is powered by the MP3 player and the high quality sound are designed to keep the sound output safe for the baby.  The band is washable using the gentle cycle and cold water but you cannot dry it in a machine.  Another neat feature are the split headphones which allows two people to listen.  The one year warranty also adds to assurance that of a quality product.

The bands are versatile and come in three colors of nude, black and white and sizes of 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 with a great chart that shows what you are pre-pregnancy and what size belt to purchase.

It was so easy to use with the pocket and convenient, secured, velcro strips.  She was able to listen and play the music with little effort for her baby.  The recommendations are to use Sound Beginnings during the third trimester.

Here is a bonus feature:

Sound Delivery offers parents, friends and family a chance to bond in a unique way the unborn baby.   This amazing service allows anyone to record a message via their telephone.  Those messages are then sent to the parent via e-mail to upload the MP3 file to their player.  Each person has a unique account with a specific code to assure privacy.  With my husband stationed in Kuwait, this is a wonderful way for him to send a message to his grandbaby.   It's a 1-800 number for callers.  There is a fee for the account owner but not for the caller.  

This is revolutionary in allowing those from afar to stay connected and I really love the idea.

To see more, check out this video:

We both highly recommend the Sound Beginnings by Creative Baby, Inc.  If you would like to purchase, click here.

Stay tuned for a giveaway coming soon for the July Baby Shower Extravaganza!

Sound Beginnings is a sponsor of Blogmania 2010!

Baby Cribs Plus $100 Gift Certificate to Any CSN 200+ Store Baby Giveaway 5/25 CLOSED WINNER



An e-mail has been sent and she has 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen by random.org.

Thanks to all those who entered!

If you are a regular reader to my blog, you know we have many children along with a grandchild along the way.  Our oldest, 21, is due 10/10/10 so we are completely excited.  I am at least as my husband is still trying to adjust to being a grandfather before he turns 40.  One of the most exciting times in preparing for a new baby is trying to choose the right cribs.  There are so many to choose from to meet any decor or taste.  She's still pondering what theme she will choose but she is also waiting to find out the baby's sex.  Luckily for her, she gets my youngest's hand me down crib.  When we bought it, we lived in Hawaii and if you know anything about living on an island, everything costs more to ship and the selection is far from generous.  I wished I had known about the CSN collection of stores that includes Baby Cribs Plus as they have everything!

Sorelle Amelia Elite 4-in-1  Convertible Crib in Oak Cider
 Stokke Sleepi Crib with Mattress  DaVinci Emily 4-in-1 Convertible Crib in Natural
With more than 600 cribs, 800 strollers, 1000 bedding sets and 200 car seats, you will find what you want!  Baby Cribs Plus also carries all the name brands that I've grown used to such as Britax, Pali, Maclaren and more.

Another feature I like about Baby Cribs Plus are the ideas they provide with their products.  Nursery room ideas are hard to come up with but they detail everything you need to create the magical world of love for your little one.

Girl Crib Bedding Sets
Unisex Crib Bedding Sets  Novelty Characters Crib Bedding

There is also a great link to an expecting parent's checklist full of things you will need along with safety tips and features to look for when picking your baby products.  If you aren't familiar with Baby Cribs Plus, their site is so easy to navigate around with products separated with their own pages, sales and promotions, best sellers in case you want to be trendy or in the know and browse by brand.   I wished I had known about this store when we lived in Hawaii!
The Giveaway:

One lucky reader will win a $100 Gift Certificate to any of CSN's 200+ online stores!  I'm jealous as I've been fortunate to review a prior product from CSN and it was of great quality and they have wonderful customer service.

Holly and Hal Moose Build-A-Bear Workshop Review & Giveaway 12/20 CLOSED WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Congratulations to...

SueBrown and Snowflake07

Thanks to all those that entered and I'm working on a brand new set of giveaways for 2010!

I don't think there is one child that doesn't like Build-A-Bear Workshop and I don't blame them.  I can't imagine the fun I would have had as a child getting able to build one of these adorable animals.  My oldest took my six year old to Build-A-Bear last weekend and she made two of the new Star Wars bears.  One was Darth Vader and the other was a Storm Trooper. 

The newest collection is Holly and Hal Moose and the clothing accessories make them even more adorable.  Thanks to MomSelect and Build-A-Bear, I received the MomSelect Holiday Product Pak that had both Holly and Hal Moose.  Not only are they soft and cuddly but the antlers on Hal really light up!  There are even music choices to add such as:  Giggle Sounds, 6 in 1 Best Friend Sounds, Frosty the Snowman Song, Jonas Brother Sound and many more.  Just click here to hear samples.

With all the clothing choices, you can really build a heart warming Christmas gift for your little one.  The Holly and Hal Moose were adorably dressed in this:

Here is something that I didn't know about Build-A-Bear, you can add embroidery to really personalize a gift.  It only costs $8 more but well worth it.

My daughter went to a Build-A-Bear birthday party last year and that's what we're doing next year.  It was so much fun watching all the little girls have fun picking out their own bear, making it and then choosing the clothes.  The Associate was fantastic and was in the right place in making sure the kids had a great time.

Build-A-Bear is really a one stop shop for all kinds of fun for your little one's and even adults that enjoy receiving cute, cuddly and personalized furry little friends.

Holly and Hal even have a special Christmas Adventure.  Click HERE to watch the trailer.  If you missed the airing of the movie, you can still watch it here.   Holly and Hal Moose:  Our Uplifting Christmas Adventure book is a fun filled adventure that will delight any child.  The story is free when you buy both Holly and Hal or for $15.99.

The Giveaway:

Two Build-A-Bear eGift Cards ($10 value each).

Mythic Entertainment Warhammer MMO Online Game Giveaway WINNER

An e-mail will be sent and please respond within 48 hours!

This one is for the dads, the boys and MOMMY GAMERS!!!!

Online games is becoming increasingly popular due to the constraints of the economy and the ease for some sit in your chair for hours entertainment.  It's a great way to kill time, have fun with your loved one's if they play or to meet new people in a fantasy world.

Never tried an online game before?  Here's your chance to try the game for FREE!

Mythic is even offering a ten day free pass to try it out but with the game itself, you will get free playtime.

If you have never heard of a MMO(RPG), it's a is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game, more commonly called an MMO. In MMOs (including Dark Age of Camelot ), tens of thousands of people can adventure together or separately in worlds that are created by a game company. The most successful MMORPGs to date have several hundred thousand monthly subscribers. These types of games are created by teams that can range in size from forty developers to over a hundred developers, and can cost over ten million dollars to produce a AAA title. Some games currently in development are rumored to cost many times that.

Besides the fact that tens of thousands of people can play this type of game at the same time and interact with each other, the biggest difference is that MMORPGs can be constantly updated with new content and challenges for the player. In the case of Dark Age of Camelot, Mythic creates new content and improvements for the game on a regular basis. Throw in five retail expansions, and you have a game that since it was released in 2001, has increased dramatically in size, scope and features. This type of dedication to new content is what sets online games apart from single player games.

What is Warhammer?
