YMI Jeans {Spoil Your Family Review & Giveaway #70}

EC64201-S02 (2)

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s sponsor is YMI Jeans. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for a second chance to win the same prize being offered here.

YMI appeals to girls and young women who are youthful, confident, vibrant and fashionable and express themselves through what they wear.

Known for its high price/value relationship, YMI offers an exceptional value for its customers.

I received the Plus Size Rhinestone Capri to review. These fit perfect when I first got them a few weeks ago but after I lost a few pounds stressing about the wedding, they’re a bit loose in the waist. A belt is a quick fix. They have become one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. They’re so comfortable and stylish. They also only would have cost me only $15 had I purchased them and that is an awesome price for such a great quality pair of capris.

YMI plus size capri with coin and back flap pocket detail. Rhinestones, studs and embroidery create one of our best selling back pockets.

Giveaway: One lucky reader will win their choice of YMI Jeans (as long as it is in stock).

Required Entry: Tell me one item you like from the YMI Jeans website.

My Vintage Baby {Spoil Your Family Review + Giveaway #69}

myvintagebaby

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s sponsor is My Vintage Baby. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for a second chance to win the same prize being offered here.

My Vintage Baby is an amazing company that sells baby and kids clothing, some women’s clothing, diaper bags, blankets, doll outfits, hair accessories and so much more. The best thing about them is that everything they sell is adorable. They have the best designs and quality I’ve seen in kids clothing in quite some time.

What may interest my work at home mom readers about the company is that they offer an opportunity similar to Avon and Tupperware, but for their clothes. Since the company isn’t as popular, I think this would be a great opportunity if you know a lot of parents.

Here’s how it works… A My Vintage Baby Sales Representative partners with a Hostess to hold a Trunk Show. The Hostess simply invites a few of the girls over to her home and the Sales Rep does the rest. She brings the newest My Vintage Baby collections over to the Hostess’ home for an exclusive Trunk Show. The Hostess gets My Vintage Baby FREE and half price clothing for opening her home and inviting her friends over. The Sales Rep gets paid commission and the girlfriends get to shop till they drop in the comfort of the Hostesses home. No malls. No parking lots. No strollers. No lines…

I received the outfit pictured below, which seems to no longer be available since Summer is practically over. That’s a shame because it’s a great outfit. I absolutely adore the skulls and crossbones on the shorts. The shorts are a bit big on Leland but he is growing into them a bit more each day. I love the style. I wish more companies sold clothes like these for kids. I am very tempted to become a sales rep for the company so I can receive a 45% off discount on their awesome products!

Giveaway: One lucky reader will win their choice of My Vintage Baby outfit depending on size and availability.

Required Entry: Tell me one item you like from the My Vintage Baby website.

For extra entries you can do any or ALL of the following:

* Follow my blog through Google Friend Connect (sidebar).

Piggy Paint {Spoil Your Family Giveaway #68}

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s sponsor is Piggy Paint. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for a second chance to win the same prize being offered here.

Now, I personally, have no experience with the Piggy Paint products but I hear great things. You could read about what Annette thought of their products in her giveaway post. Piggy Paint would like us to highlight their new “Project Earth” line for you today.

Piggy Paint is excited to introduce our new TWEEN polish line, “Project Earth” that includes wild, neon colors that will allow us to target an older audience. There are 5 wild, neon colors, and even a glow-in-the-dark polish (Radioactive)! It can be worn by itself, or applied to the top of other colors (as a topcoat, requires 2-3 coats for maximum “glow”).
With names like “The Boyfriend Blues” and “Eat Your Peace”, tweens are lovin’ this eco-friendly, water-based alternative that dries to a hard, durable finish. Piggy Paint Project Earth’s odorless formula makes it perfect to use at sleepovers for hours of manis and pedis. There’s no need to worry about those harsh, stinky chemicals anymore! Project Earth was launched in conjunction with Piggy Paint’s new, updated website April 1. There’s even a glow-in-the dark polish called “Radioactive”.

We are excited to announce that we have received the Excellence Award from Safbaby.com and now proudly have received their seal of approval as an approved Vendor of Mom approved-child tested products!!

We use 100% reused peanuts from our local community to ship our products! Reduce, reuse, recycle! Let’s pamper Mother Earth!

One winner from both blogs will be receiving a $15 Piggy Paint gift card. Also, all readers are encouraged to use this coupon code for 10% off everything on the Piggy Paint website. The code is “FUNNY10L” and it will expire on December 31, 2010.

Good to be You {Spoil Your Family Review + Giveaway #67}

yhst-40726116414759_2116_9211079

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s second sponsor is Good to be You. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for a chance to win a similar giveaway from Good to be You’s sister site, Sparkle Plenty.

If you’re a long time reader of my blog, then you know that I’ve worked with both Good to be You and Sparkle Plenty. I was definitely happy with my review items in the past. It was a no brainer when I was given a second chance to review for one of them again.

We at GoodToBeYou.Com are dedicated to providing you with an enjoyable shopping experience in a chic, fun & friendly atmosphere. We offer high quality gifts, unique accessories and delicious spa, bath & beauty products, all at affordable prices. We take great pride in providing informative tips, articles and resources to nurture your mind and spirit, as well as your body. So treat yourself to some well-deserved pampering that lets you delight in knowing it’s good to be you.

I received the Cake “Plane Friendly” Travel Kit to review this time around. Here’s a brief description of this product:

Great for gifting unto others or gifting to yourself, this plane friendly travel kit will come in handy – even at home (great for guests!)

We want to make it easy for travellers, like you, to follow the new product travel regulations. So we developed the ultimate travel kit – we never want to separate a girl from her CAKE!

We’ve packed in five perfect travel companions just for you:

1.”It’s A Slice’ Supremely Rich Bath and Shower Froth
2. “It’s a Slice” Supremely Rich Body Mousse Cake girls say that it smells like an orange creamsicle
3. “Desserted Island” Supremely Rich Bath and Shower Froth
4. “Desserted Island” Supreme Body Mousse Cake girls say that it smells like whipped vanilla icing with a pinch of coconut cream
5. “Milk Made” Velveteen Hand Creme Cake girls say that it smells like whipped vanilla milkshake

So, buckle up and indulge.

I’m a huge fan of the last three items since vanilla and coconut are flavors I absolutely love to smell at all times…taste too but that’s another story. I’m not a huge fan of the orange creamsicle items but my best friend always orders orange creamsicle daiquiris so I plan on giving those to her as a belated little extra birthday/maid of honor present. I’m sure she will love it! They automatically made me think of her.

Giveaway: One lucky reader will win their own Cake “Plane Friendly” Travel Kit.

Required Entry: Tell me one item you like from the Good to be You website.

191 Unlimited {Spoil Your Family Review + Giveaway #66}

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Our first sponsor for today is 191 Unlimited. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for a second chance to win the same prize being offered here.

191 Unlimited was founded in 2002 with $191 and a dream. Long time best friends Parth Sharma and Girish Karnani took $191 to the casino and turned it into enough money to launch their first 191 Unlimited collection. The two college grads then loaded the samples into their car and went on a 2 month trek from NY to LA and back, stopping in as many cities as possible to show their line to specialty stores.

The founders had 4 original principles by which they wanted each shirt to be made: 1) Awesome Fit, 2) Extreme Comfort, 3) Innovative Detailing, and 4) Affordability. 191 Unlimited still employs these 4 core principles in the making of all of its products.

We received four shirts from 191 Unlimited. Three of them, Ben loves and has worn quite a few times. The other one hangs in the closet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I like it but Ben doesn’t. He even has a similar shirt in different colors that he wears as an over shirt…but for some odd reason he doesn’t like the shirt below. I used a picture of the kids version because that’s all I could find.

Ben’s two favorite shirts he received are called Anarchy and Right Place. They are both very stylish and make him look so handsome. I wish he had more clothes like the ones we received from 191 Unlimited.

I also love that they have matching shirts for young boys. I can’t wait to purchase one of the shirts Ben received for Leland so they can be “twins”.

Giveaway: One lucky reader will win three 191 Unlimited shirts (chosen by the sponsor, you choose the size).

Required Entry: Tell me one item you like from the 191 Unlimited website.

For extra entries you can do any or ALL of the following:

* Follow my blog through Google Friend Connect (sidebar).

Clean + Green by SeaYu {Spoil Your Family Review + Giveaway #65}

ps_catcarpet

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s second sponsor (which is all about spoiling our pets) is Clean + Green by SeaYu. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for a second chance to win the same prize being offered here.

CLEAN+GREEN® is the only eco-friendly aerosol pet odor remover and pet stain remover product on the planet! Our line of eco friendly, green cleaning products are made from organic and biodegradable ingredients and packaged so you can recycle the container – now you can clean green! For green pet cleaning, use effective, non toxic, organic home cleaning supplies and keep an environmentally friendly home – with pets.

We tried two of their products for cat smells and stains. We tried the Cat Urine Odor and Stain Remover Clean+Green for Carpet and Upholstery and the one for Wood and Tile.

We get tons of use out of the Wood and Tile one since most of our townhouse is hard floor. Only our bedrooms and stairs have carpets…and then there are the occasional couch messes to clean up.

The best thing about these products is that they really do get rid of pets stains. However, I do not like the way it gets rid of pet smells and odors. It seems to cover it with another not so nice odor. So while it does work, we usually spray a random Febreze product over it.

Giveaway: One lucky reader will win two Clean + Green SeaYu products of their choice.

Required Entry: Tell me something you learned from the Clean + Green by SeaYu website.

ScoopFree {Spoil Your Family Review + Giveaway #64}

scoopfree-345kgs61810

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s sponsors are all about spoiling our pets. Our first sponsor is ScoopFree. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for a second chance to win the same prize being offered here.

Now that you’ve read Annette’s review on the ScoopFree Ultra Self-Cleaning Litter Box. Oh, you haven’t yet? Check it out here.

Ok…now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me tell you how this product worked for our family. Let me start by saying that we have two cats, Zoe and Jasmine and they are both indoor cats and both use the litter box many times throughout the day. Let me just say that this litter box is perfect for our fur babies.

ScoopFree® is the self-cleaning litter box you can leave alone for weeks at a time. It is the only self-cleaning litter box that uses disposable litter trays to provide hands-off convenience and unbeatable odor control.

ScoopFree Ultra offers 3 additional features for the ultimate in cat care: A privacy hood, an adjustable rake delay, and a health counter.

Watch the video below for a better idea of how this amazing litter box works. It’s super cool. I love technology these days!

While the prices for trays seems expensive, you’re actually saving money because you don’t need to change the litter box as often. We can go up to 15 days without changing the litter box tray. If you only have one cat (especially an indoor/outdoor cat like Annette), you could save unimaginable amounts of money by switching. It may seem like a lot of money to invest up front…but for us it’s been worth it.

My favorite features of this litter box is for one, the privacy hood. My girls don’t have to show us their business while their doing theirs. It’s a considerate addition. I also love the smell of the tray refills, very fresh. And of course, being able to choose how long the system rakes the litter box after the girls go to the bathroom is also a big plus for us!

Giveaway: One reader will win their own ScoopFree Ultra Self-Cleaning Litter Box (ARV $179.95).

Required Entry: Tell me something you learned from the ScoopFree website.

Delta Faucet {Spoil Your Family Review + Giveaway #63}

3551-PT.tif

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s sponsor is Delta Faucet. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for another chance to win the same prize being offered here. Make sure you read her review too. I am in love with the kitchen faucet she received.

“At Delta® faucet, we believe that there are better ways to experience water. This conviction goes beyond excellent design to incorporate smart thinking that anticipates people’s needs. Our technologies include MagnaTite® magnetic docking spray wands that stay in place, to Touch20® Technology faucets turned on or off with just a touch making life easier when hands are messy, to DIAMOND™ Seal Technology valves that help the faucet last up to 5 million uses-Delta® faucets incorporate thoughtful features that delight the customer. When paired with beautiful, inspirational design, it’s easy to understand why Delta® is more than just a faucet.”

I received the Dryden Two Handle Widespread Lavatory Faucet in Chrome (photographed above), which retails for just over $300. This beautiful faucet replaced one of the ugliest and oldest faucets I’ve ever seen. It was gold and had nasty wooden and gold handles. I despise gold to begin with but this faucet was a huge eye sore.

* The clean, geometric lines of the Dryden™ line are reminiscent of the Art Deco period of the 1920′s and 30′s
* The Dryden collection offers a full complement of coordinating products to create the perfect look.
* Two handle operation for better control
* Features water efficient aerator
* Available in chrome, Aged Pewter, Brilliance® Stainless or Venetian Bronze®
* Lifetime Faucet and Finish Warranty

Overall, this faucet is affordable for it’s beautiful and modern design. It wasn’t a difficult faucet for my husband to install. And it works great! I love my new faucet. Most importantly, did I mention its gorgeous? I’m so glad we were able to replace that old piece of junk faucet.

Delta also offers kitchen faucets, like the one Annette reviewed, which I have been drooling over. They also sell some shower heads that look amazing!

Giveaway: One reader will win the faucet of their choice priced up to $300.

Required Entry: Tell me an item you would like to own from the Delta Faucet website.

simplehuman {Spoil Your Family Review #62}

simplehumansensorpump1

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s sponsor is simplehuman. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog to read her review of the same item I received.

We all have daily tasks we want to do faster, things that take up too much space, and projects we want to organize. simplehuman is committed to designing products that help efficiently achieve these goals.

I love the simplehuman products…all of them. I would purchase them all if I could. A few of their trashcans were on our wedding registry and I would have added other products of theirs if Target and Wal-Mart sold them.

I received the Sensor Pump to review. Here is a description of that product:

The sensor pump dispenses soap touch-free to help avoid the spread of germs. Simply place your hand under the sensor to dispense soap automatically. An intuitive LED display lights up when the sensor is activated. Four volume settings allow the pump to dispense preset amounts of soap or lotion. Operates on 4 AA batteries (not included).

We placed this soap dispenser in our half-bath downstairs for all company to use. It is the perfect place for it, in my opinion and we have received many compliments on it. My only complaint is that it take FOUR AA batteries, that’s a lot of batteries! They do, however, seem to last a while. We haven’t had to replace them yet.

We actually have lotion in our dispenser but plan on putting soap in it soon. I like the fact that you don’t have to touch the dispenser in order to get the soap out (or lotion…or dish soap for that matter if you choose to put the dispenser in your kitchen). It automatically dispenses the perfect amount of liquid and you’re not risking getting someone’s filthy hand germs. Great invention!

This soap pump retails for $29.99 and comes in black or white. Thank you very much, simplehuman, for this fantastic review opportunity. It also available on simplehuman’s Amazon store if you have gift cards or free shipping there.

Hard Candy {Spoil Your Family Review + Giveaway #61}

uh-oh

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s sponsor is Hard Candy. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for a chance to win the same prize being offered here.

I’ve seen Hard Candy cosmetics around for years, but I can’t recall ever using any of the products until now. I think I’m really rough with cosmetics (or my two year old is) because everything I received from the company has wound up broken in one way or another…except for the nail polish I received.

I received the Just Nails with Ring nail polish in the color Splendid (a cute, summery yellow shade). My favorite thing about this nail polish is that it comes with a matching plastic fashion ring. A picture of me wearing the ring is below.

I also received the Blush Crush Baked Blush in Honeymoon. I love the name of this shade. It reminds me of a song I love called Honey & the Moon. Most people would just be reminded of the vacation newlyweds have after their wedding. Unfortunately, this blush is crumbled in its palette and makes a mess every time I open it now. Thankfully, I can still use it. It just provides a light pink very subtle shimmer for your cheeks.

Lastly, I received a great eyeliner from Hard Candy. It is a Take Me Out Glitter Eye Liner in a dark green shade called Money. While I don’t have a reason to wear green eyeliner very often, it is a fun color to use and really shows off my green eyes.

Giveaway: Four lucky readers will win a Hard Candy prize package that includes:

* Mouthing Off-Au Natural
* Eye for an Eye-Java
* Curl Up & Dye-Ink
* Just Nails-Hypnotic
* Kal-eye-descope- Ab Fab
