Feel Fabulous Every Day with Caress Fresh Body Wash! #CaressMe

I have to admit that I’m a girly-girl when it comes to products for my skin ~ the better they smell, the more I love them! No ordinary soap for me; I always use a scented shower gel or body wash. So, I was thrilled for the opportunity to try the new Caress Fresh Collection! Their line of body washes and beauty bars comes in three fragrances: Emerald Rush (infused with Lush Gardenia & White Tea Essence), Aqua Sparkle (infused with Lilac Blossom & Aquamarine Essence), and Juicy Escape (infused with Sun Kissed Lily & Pink Grapefruit Essence). I am currently using the Aqua Sparkle body wash, and I love the smell. The scent is bold enough to make me smell amazing, but definitely not overpowering.

Caress is also pleased to announce their new celebrity Fabulista: Kelly Rowland! Her favorite scent from the Caress Fresh Collection is the Emerald Rush. As you can see, Kelly is looking amazing these days!

Pampering yourself is what it’s all about. I encourage you to join me and Kelly Rowland by indulging in the captivating scents of the new Caress Fresh Collection! Learn more at www.caressskin.com. Follow Caress on Facebook and Twitter, too!

My Favorite New Series on the Hallmark Channel: When Calls the Heart ~ Watch on DVD!

One of my favorite new television series this year has been When Calls the Heart on the Hallmark Channel. It’s based on books by bestselling author Janette Oke, and tells the story of a young woman named Elizabeth Thatcher, who was born into a wealthy family but decides to take on the adventure of a lifetime by becoming a schoolteacher in a poor mining town. The townspeople have been devastated by a mining accident that took the lives of many of the men in the village, and the widows and children left behind are having a tough time making ends meet.

They recently aired the season finale, but if you missed the show this season, there’s still time to catch up! Fortunately, you can get started with the DVD, When Calls the Heart: Lost & Found, which contains the first two episodes of the series. You’ll meet Elizabeth (played by Erin Krakow) and her potential love interest, Constable Jack Thornton (played by Daniel Lissing), as well as the other people in town, including Abigail Stanton, a widow played by Lori Loughlin (Full House).

Set in the 19th century, When Calls the Heart is especially appealing to fans of historical stories like the classic Little House on the Prairie series. In fact, When Calls the Heart is directed by Michael Landon Jr., son of the late Michael Landon, who directed, produced and acted in Little House. Both men excel in bringing heart-warming, inspirational programs that are appropriate for the whole family. If you loved When Calls the Heart as much as I did, pick up the DVD, When Calls the Heart: Lost & Found. And if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of watching this series, this DVD is a great way to see why this show has become so well-loved.

Oubly: Unique Card and Stationery Designs You Can Personalize! Giveaway for a $30 Gift Code (3 Winners)!

Many things have become more convenient since the dawn of the Internet, but I still like to do things the old-fashioned way when it comes to sending invitations, thank-you cards, holiday cards and other correspondence for special occasions. I like paper. Fortunately, however, ordering paper items can still be done the modern way via the Web, and this makes it even easier to customize your selections!

I recently discovered a new site called Oubly.com! They have an enormous selection of beautiful, artistic cards, invitations, stationery, labels, announcements, and more that you can personalize to meet your needs. I like to order pre-printed birthday cards that my children can take to their friends’ birthday parties. The cards wish the child a happy birthday, thank him for inviting my kids to the party, and include my children’s names. So I decided to check Oubly.com to see if they had something appropriate. I looked in their section for fun birthday party invitations for kids and found this adorable design called Pizza, Cake & Ice Cream:

Then I customized the wording to change it from an invitation to a birthday card! Here’s the end result:

Isn’t it wonderful? Notice that I was able not only to change the message, but I could change the font style and color, too. And I love that the back of the card is also decorated, not plain.

It was so easy to customize my card online. You do not have to be an expert on the computer to figure it out. Even the delivery was a wonderful experience. My cards came very quickly, and they arrived in a gorgeous branded box with a magnetic closure so that I can store my cards in the box to keep them looking nice.

They even came with a coupon for 20% off my next purchase as well as two cute stickers!

Here are more wonderful reasons to order from Oubly.com:
  • They also carry photo cards, so you can add special snapshots to your cards.
  • They have free shipping on Wednesdays!
  • Orders of $40+ receive free gifts! Check out the gifts here.
  • You can request free print samples of their print cards and envelopes.
  • Eligible nonprofits receive $250 of free printing and a 15% discount on all products.
If you’re like me and still prefer to send paper invitations, cards and more, I hope you’ll check out Oubly.com. Their designs are all original, and you’re sure to find something you love and can customize for your own special event.

Quaker Breakfast Shakes: Delicious, Nutritious Breakfast On-the-Go! Plus, Enter This Giveaway for a $25 Walmart Gift Card!

Over the past several months, I have started TWO new part-time jobs! Many weeks, I am working over 40 hours, plus keeping up with my blogs and, of course, my family. And, as a mother, I often find myself taking care of everyone else (my family, my customers, etc.) before paying attention to myself. Unfortunately, I think I have paid the price for that mentality by coming down with a case of shingles! So, as I sit here in painful misery, I am resolving to take better care of myself.

I recently had the opportunity to review Quaker’s new line of Breakfast Shakes. They allow me to have a healthy, nutritious breakfast (or snack) that I can eat on the run. In the morning, I’ll sip a Quaker Breakfast Shake while I’m getting the kids’ lunches made. I’ve also taken a shake in a cooler bag to my jobs to drink on a 15-minute break. What do I love about Quaker Breakfast Shakes?
  1. Taste! They are absolutely amazing. I had a chocolate shake and a strawberry shake, and they were both so rich and creamy. I really felt like I was indulging in a milkshake because they tasted SO good. I am excited to try the vanilla, too!
  2. Convenience! No cooking or prep time is required. Just pop open the cap and drink up. It can’t get any easier.
  3. Nutrition! Quaker Breakfast Shakes contain 8 grams of whole grains, 10 grams of protein, and 6 grams of fiber ~ much healthier than grabbing a donut!
I am so excited to have found Quaker Breakfast Shakes. They will help me to take better care of myself by starting my day off with a healthier breakfast. I’m going to be downloading the coupon below so I can purchase more. I hope you will, too!

CLICK HERE to download a coupon for $2 off Quaker Breakfast Shakes!

One lucky winner will receive a $25 Walmart gift card so s/he can buy some Quaker Breakfast Shakes! Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends at 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, May 4, 2014.

French’s Crunch Time Entrees: Quick Restaurant-Style Meals You Can Make for Your Family! (GIVEAWAY)

I’ve never been shy about confessing that I really don’t enjoy cooking and meal-planning. Anything that makes my life easier when it comes to feeding my family will most likely be a big hit with me. That’s why I was excited to hear about new French’s Crunch Time Entrees! Each pouch contains a packet of crunchy coating and a packet of sauce. There are four different flavors: General Tso’s, Buffalo (made with Frank’s RedHot), Sweet & Sour, and Chipotle BBQ.

As you can see from our photos below, they were so easy to make. We cut up chicken (you can also use beef, pork or seafood), dipped it in egg, rolled it in the crunchy coating and flour, and baked it at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.

We also made a pot of rice in our rice cooker. Then we put the chicken on the rice and poured the sauce on top!

This meal was a huge hit with our whole family! We tried the General Tso’s and Sweet & Sour flavors, which were both delicious. (I’m a huge fan of Sweet & Sour especially.) We just added a salad, and we had an easy and delectable meal. And each French’s Crunch Time Entrée has a suggested retail price of only $3.49! Even with the additional cost of the meat/seafood, that’s way less expensive than you’ll spend at a restaurant.

For more information, recipes and coupons, visit www.frenchs.com and www.facebook.com/frenchs.


One lucky winner will receive two flavors of French's Crunch Time Entrees! Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends at 11:59 PM EST on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.
