Nothing but Clean

I was recently chosen to be a member of the Purex insiders.  Being an insider has it's advantages, as members, we  receive the inside scoop on the Purex® brand of laundry soaps and fabric softeners.  Having boys that are active and have played a variety of sports, I can't tell you how invaluable this information is. 

Yesterday, I received a  sample of Purex Complete Crystals Softener packaged in a beautiful blue box with information that explained the key reasons why you should change to Purex Crystal softeners instead of using your traditional liquid fabric softeners.   One of the major reasons that I would stop using liquid fabric softener is that they are oil based and end up leaving a layer of oil on your fabrics.   "The Purex Complete Crystal Softener is 100% safe to use on children's sleepwear as it does not impair the flame retardant qualities and it will not coat them with oil."

The positive benefit for using Purex Crystals Softener is that it penetrates into the fabric and infuses the fiber with freshness that will last for weeks.
GIVEAWAY:  I would like to share my free coupon with you.  If you would like to try the Purex Complete Crystals Softener, please comment below with a laundry tip.  Invite your friends to comment as well.  I will pick a winner by Sunday 3/6/11.

Oprah's Search for the next TV Star

Asks My Opinion badge-roundedAs a member of Shespeaks.com, I had the opportunity to preview the season premier of "Your OWN Show: Oprah's search for the next tv star." The show was 30 minutes without commercials.  It features 10 contestants that are vying for the position of owning their own show under Oprah's guidance.  I have to say, my first thought was "How come I didn't know about this?"  I would love to have my own show.  As I watched the first episode, there were times that I found myself drifting away.  I'm not sure if it's because we've all seen too many of these types of reality tv or that the characters themselves were not as dynamic and interesting.  What I did see was a team of contestants  that worked well together and a team that had too many huge egos.  Unfortunately, huge ego's don't often listen to others suggestions; therefore may not be true leaders.   I won't give away the show as I would want you to make your own decisions on it.  In the end, a lucky person will have their own show and be very blessed to have Oprah as his or her mentor.   

Check out OWN network, which is airing shows now.  Check out "Your OWN Show: Oprah's search for the next TV Star"  and if you are not a member of shespeaks.com, go to the website and sign up.  Shespeaks has product trials and other various programs that might interest you.

A Girl Can Dream

mm_home_header.gifToday, the news stations were all abuzz about the megamillions lottery draw.  The amount to be won is 355 million dollars.  They predicted long lines at the local gas stations and convenience stores.  I did pick up a few tickets, but never had to wait in a long line. When I win tonight, I promise to put forth a plan to make sure that my family and friends are taken care of.  

One of my biggest dreams is to help other people; people that really need the help. Help in a way that will build self esteem, pride and ownership.  I've thought about this for a long time. My heart is true in this direction.  A girl can dream and believe that dreams do come true.

What is your dream if you won $355 million dollars?

A chance to win ($5.00 Target Gift Card)

Iconic Puppy GiftCard - $50

I have always been a lucky person.  I am forever winning small prizes and hopefully this year I will hit a mother load!  My dream is to be able to share and to be able to help others.  So to start the new year, I am giving away a $5.00 Target Gift Card.  Comment below on any luck that has been bestowed to you and I will pick a winner at the end of this month.  Good luck!

Before I knew it, a New Beginning Again

Wishing all of you a Happy Healthy New Year!  I can't believe that time flew by so fast.  It was a year ago that I decided to start my blog.  Somewhere along the line, I became busy and exhausted and writing was put on the back burner.  Though I mentioned exhausted, I did have fun along the way.  In August, I spent two weeks in Italy celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary.  There are places that give you such peace and serenity.  Tuscany, the people, the food and the beauty in the country is that place for me. 

I hope that the new year will be good to you.  Sending you warm hugs.
