Have You Met the Fairy Hobmother Yet?

Have you recently made a wish that actually came true? Well, I did! You see, I have been hearing about a fairy that has been visiting hardworking bloggers around the blogosphere and sprinkles fairy dusts on their blogs, making their wishes come true. He’s called the Fairy Hobmother. Yes, you’ve read it right; the Fairy Hobmother is a he! For weeks I have been wishing for a visit from him. And guess what? He has finally paid this blog a visit! I am extremely excited when I finally received a message from the famous Fairy Hobmother. And not only that, he has given me a gift as well! Wishes do come true! (Now I know that my wish of having that American Fridge Freezer can also become a reality *wink*).

If you would like the Fairy Hobmother to pay a special visit to any of your blogs, please leave a comment on this post. He said he’ll be dropping by again anytime soon to look for more wonderful blogs to visit next. You can also follow him on Twitter if you want to get updated on his activities.

Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway

This is a sponsored post, I am a Kmart Layaway blogger, though all opinions are my own.
BLG_Logo_Horizontal.jpg (3 documents, 3 total pages)
Shopping for holiday gifts in advance is a great way to avoid the Christmas rush. Scouring different stores just to find the most suitable gift items and waiting in line for hours just to be able to pay for purchases are just some of the things that you can avoid if you finish your holiday gift shopping ahead of time. But sometimes, even if you like to shop early, your budget may not be enough to buy everything that you need. It can also be frustrating when you’ve been eyeing an item and then when you finally have saved enough, it is no longer available at the store. The good news is that shopping for the holidays has just become more affordable because of the free layaway program of Kmart. Through the free layaway program, they will waive the $5 service fee on an 8 week contract and $10 service fee on a 12 week contract initiated between 9/9/2012 through 11/17/2012. If you see an item that you really want at the store that is up for a layaway, you can choose to have a contract initiated. You just have to pay for the down payment. You then have to pay for the weekly payments and once the item has been fully paid, you can take it home with you. Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway has also been launched where every week, one winner from every store will have their layaway balanced paid off.

Review & Giveaway | Mia Mariu Natural Beauty Products

I recently got an amazing opportunity to try a mineral makeup company called Mia Mariu. Mia Mariu’s products consist of the most natural ingredients available. Containing a combination of botanicals, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and peptides.  Mia Mariu products offer the perfect blend of ingredients to give your skin a glowing and healthy look.
I was so excited to be able to try their amazing items from their botanical skincare and mineral make up line: RestauraCel-C Thermal Microdermabrasion Set, PERFECTING FINISH Mineral Liquid Foundation, and 2 loose powder eye shadows. Thanks Mia Mariu for this awesome opportunity!
First, I used RestauraCel-C Thermal Microdermabrasion Set for weeks before writing up this review to see how it really works.  It’s a simple two-step process. First, apply a thin layer of Refinisher with a gentle touch over clean, dry skin. Follow immediately with Thermal Activator and massage using circular motions. Avoid massaging in any one area. Rinse thoroughly. You can use it 1 or 2 times a week or as needed to reveal radiant skin. I absolutely love the result! My skin felt so soft, clean, and poreless.
Next, I tried their PERFECTING FINISH Mineral Liquid Foundation. This foundation offers medium to full coverage that feels and looks flawless. Can you see the difference? This mineral foundation is age-defying hydrating foundation with luminous all-day coverage. With treatment benefits from natural minerals, green tea, lecithin and vitamins A&E that provide an even skin tone and flawless all-day refined finish. What I love about this foundation is that it's suitable for all skin types, non-irritating, and oil free! I highly recommend this to everyone.
I also got to try 2 loose powder eye shadows: Loose Mineral Shadow Liner Azabache and Loose Mineral Shadow Liner Marino. They are made with pure minerals and luxurious color pigments, thin silky formula provides long lasting coverage while gliding on softly and easily.

So if you are looking for some lovely makeup product or even skincare that will be more natural and make you feel good, you should try out Mia Mariu today!

Pharmaceutical, Heat Seal and Blister Foil

Product manufacturers know that the investments that they have made in the development and manufacture of their products will be maximized if they also put as much effort in the packaging of the product. Packaging is an important marketing tool that can provide the identity that the products need. It helps create a distinct look for the products and make them easily identifiable. The design of the packaging including the images used and the color scheme chosen for each particular product contributes to the whole image of the product. The information provided in the packaging should also be enough to help the consumers decide whether they want to patronize the product or not. Aside from the design of the packaging, the materials used should also be carefully chosen. Heat Seal packaging are used to keep the products in the required temperature particularly in certain food products that need to retain their crispiness. Blister Foil packaging is used in different products such as medicines and other pharmaceutical products to help retain their potency.

Silk Soy Milk

I'm partially lactose intolerant. I get diarrhea when I drink milk. I can have a small amount of dairy and a scoop or two of ice cream though, but please no regular milk for me.
When I eat cereal, I use soymilk. They're lactose and dairy free!

Air Brush Makeup Kits

If you regularly need tanning services but you don’t have the time to visit a tanning salon every time, you can just invest in your own portable tanning equipment. You can buy only the basic equipment such as air brush makeup kits, tanning solutions and spray guns. That way, you can have the tan that you want at any given time. You can even let your friends use them if they are willing to buy some of the basic materials that will be used such as the tanning solutions.

Michael Kors Chronograph Watch

Nowadays, wearing is watch is not just to have something that can tell you the time of the day but is also something that can be used to enhance an ensemble. It can help create the image that person wants to project. Whether it’s a plastic digital watch or a luxury michael kors chronograph watch, the right watch can help improve a person’s overall look. Some choose to invest in pieces that can match the clothes or outfit that they usually wear.

Basic 4

This is one of my favorite cereals. Basic 4! I love this kind because it's low fat. Plus, it has fruits, almonds and grains.
How about you? What's your favorite cereal?

Fur Coats for Sale

Fur coats are usually associated with luxury, glamour and high end fashion. Others think that it is something that only movie stars or rich people wear. Fur coats are actually excellent garments that can keep a person warm especially during cold weather. Real fur coats can be quite expensive but they can be a good investment since they will last long especially when they are maintained well.

In choosing which clothes to buy, it is important that we know which of them can provide us with the comfort and protection that we need. We shouldn’t buy a piece of clothing just because it looks stylish. Keeping up with the latest trends in fashion is fine just as long as we don’t compromise comfort and quality. If we like to buy fur coats, for instance, we must find a trusted retailer that is known to offer quality fur coats for sale. If you’re buying from an online store, make sure that the store is legitimate. Research as much as you can about the store first. Consumer reports and reviews from previous customers can help you provide the information you need that can help you decide whether the store is legitimate or not.

Review | i-Poppn' Earbuds

My 6 year old daughter is into music. She likes to listen to bluegrass and country songs. Every night she listens to her iPod and can't go to sleep without it. When I received the complimentary i-Poppin' Earbuds from The Wish Factory, daughter was ecstatic when she saw the fancy ear buds and can't wait to try it.
Right after I opened the box, she went upstairs and get her iPod. She was so happy when I give it to her. This Pop Grrl i-Poppn' Music Accessory is really cute! The clip-on has retractable earbuds and a power plug. It can attach to any bag, backpack, purse, keychain or clothing with a belt loo. For more i-Poppn' Music Accessories, you should checkout your local Kmart, Toys R Us, CVS Pharmacy, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, and Kroger stores.

The Classic Look of Bedspreads

Bedspreads are often the finishing touch on a bed. You can find old-fashioned quilted covers and modern microfiber ones in a variety of colors and patterns. Your new foam mattress is going to look fabulous with a colorful, new bedding set on top. If you are searching for something extravagant or something affordable, you are sure to find the perfect spread for your bedroom right here.

Whether your bedroom is styled in an antique manner or clearly contemporary, a patchwork cover makes a wonderful accent piece. This traditional type of spread lasts for years and is always charming. Wool, flannel or quilt-style bedspreads also look lovely in an antique-themed or modern setting. They are nice and cozy for chilly winter nights, but you may want to consider a cotton spread to use during warmer weather. Always factor in the type of bed you have and your bedroom decor when selecting an item to cover your mattress. A brass bed with a memory foam mattress is going to look fabulous with many styles of coverings, such as quilted, French tile and jacquard.

Be creative, and turn your bedroom into something special with a fabulous new bedding set. You can change the look of an entire room with this one single item. Bedspreads are larger and longer than comforters, and they are decorative, sleek and fitted. Whether you choose a lively-patterned one to brighten up the bedroom or an understated, solid-colored one, you can tie the room decor together in just the right manner.

Zebra Print Girls Swimwear

I learned my lesson to not to buy swimwear during summer season. Gosh, they're pretty expensive. The price is just ridiculous!
Since all my daughter's swimwear wont fit her anymore, I've decided to get her some new ones at the base exchange. Even if it was on sale for $15.00, it's still expensive for me. Original price for this zebra print swimsuit is $34.00.

Lighting Equipment

When you watch a professional photographer at work, you would notice that there are different things that are being considered before they actually proceed with the actual photo shoot. There are different elements that goes into a professional photo shoot. The photographer must know all the necessary techniques that he need to achieve the level of creativity that he wants with every photograph that he takes. He also invests in the right gear such as cameras that has all the features that he wants that will allow him to create the kind of photos that he wants. The studio that will be used is also important as well as the lighting equipment that it has. Some photography rental studios offer state of the art photography equipment for rent. Those who don’t have a space for their photo shoot or the high end equipment that they need can just rent the facilities and services that these rental photography studios offer.
