Help us Win!

I’m hoping some of y’all will help a sister out. I entered my kids photo in Disney’s Family Fun “I Love My Family” photo contest. Winners are chosen by viewers, but we all know how it really works. People talk their family and friends into voting for them. I posted my picture two days ago and have a whopping three votes. Yep, I’m one of the three votes. LOL I’ve posted pleas on Facebook and Twitter, but have gotten nada. So now I’m asking y’all. Help us make it to the top. Visit Family Fun and vote for us. We’re the photo labeled Ocean Brings Kids Together.

My February 2012 Julep Box

Posted on

My February Julep box contained: cuticle oil, gold sparkly (It’s called Oscar) and the perfect color red (Glenn) nail polish and a piece of chocolate candy with the shape of an Oscar pressed into the top of it. Yes, I’m very happy. Great box.

The Julep Maven club costs $19.99/month. You fill out a survey and based on your answers are given a style. Mine is All American. Editors then pick out items for you to try. This month’s package is obviously a play on Hollywood as it’s an Oscar award winning box. You also have the choice of skipping months, sending your box to a friend or selecting a different style’s box if you prefer it to the one selected for you. On the 27th of the month, if you haven’t requested to skip a month, the $19.99 is withdrawn from the account you used to set up your Maven Club Membership. If folks sign up using your referral link you get perks. For example, get two people to sign up and keep their membership for 30 days after buying their first box, and you get a free month of the Maven club.

It’s National Chocolate Cake Day 2012!

Posted on

There seems to be a holiday for every day of the year. There’s a day for pie, bubble bath, moldy cheese, ding-a-ling (yep, I said ding-a-ling) and maple syrup. Well, today is national chocolate cake day and I’m going to celebrate by making chocolate cupcakes. To get your saliva flowing, I’ve found several chocolate cakes and linked to more information about each one. Are you having chocolate cake today?

Have You Heard of Birchbox?

Posted on

While playing around online I found a beauty site called Birchbox. It stood out because for $10 a month you can receive a box filled with random samples. The idea is to introduce customers to different products in hopes that they will find something they like and purchase the full-sized product from Birchbox. I didn’t just jump into it though. I googled Birchbox samples to see what people said about the company. The consensus seemed to be that sometimes you get a great box of samples and other months you get crap. However, everyone was cool about it. People were happy with their $10 investments.

When you refer people to Birchbox with your unique code and they make their first purchase, you will receive 50 points. For every 100 points you get $10 to spend in the Birchbox store. You also get points for everything you buy. If I read correctly, you can get free shipping when you purchase full-sized bottles of the products which were included in your sample box.

Well I signed up and just received my first box. Excitedly, I had my cousin open the box (I was driving). I got:

Lavender and Peppermint scented shampoo and conditioner by C.O. Bigelow
Moisturizing lipgloss by Jouer
Viva la Juicy perfume by Juicy Couture
Nail polish by Zoya
Dry erase magnet
Black hair ribbon
Mini blueberry muffin bar by Larabar
