Posts Tagged ‘Free’

After having my daughter I was eager to get back into shape. I’ve always been a fan of workout videos and love to do Yoga from the comfort of my own living room. I checked out a Fitness DVD from my local library just because it looked fun and ended up falling in love with this absolutely beautiful woman named Hemalayaa Bell. Not only was she a charismatic fitness instructor, she also was a sort of spiritual leader and I deeply needed that at the time. The DVD was The Bollywood Dance Workout and I have since purchased my own copy and do it about once a week. That’s why when she announced she was offering FREE online classes through the month of February I jumped at the opportunity to join her and signed up for every single one!

If you don’t know about Tiny Buddha now is the time to head on over and check it out. It’s a wonderful web site full of uplifting and thought provoking blogs to get you through your toughest days. I used to spend hours reading through the compilations of post about Happiness, Peace, Love, Challenges and Change. And I always came away with a sunnier disposition and a new found optimism for the universe.

And finally to wrap it up this weekend I’d like to take a moment to talk about SwagBucks! SwagBucks is my new internet guilty pleasure and if you’re not familiar with it… you should be. Basically SwagBucks is a site compiled of special offers, online surveys and lots of other way to earn SWAG POINTS which you can then trade in for all sorts of gifts and prizes or my personal favorite AMAZON GIFT CARDS! And the best part is it’s perfectly legitimate, safe and Free (plus they reward you for things you already do like search the internet). So if you’re interested in turning your free time into Gift cards you should Click Here and sign up today! (did I mention I made 10 dollars in less than a week? It may not sound like a lot, but that’s a whole 10 bucks more than I had and all I had to do was fill out a few surveys here and there)

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!

This week I’ve been trying to save some money (Honestly I’m always trying to save some money) and I came across this great site called Money Saving Mom. It’s a wonderful blog that posts daily about coupon deals, free product promotions, and various ways to save money for your family! I love it and I follow them on Facebook which keeps me absolutely up to date.

I’ve always been drawn to crayola crayons. (hahahahahha drawn *face palm) When I was younger I just loved them. I’d arrange all my crayola sets on my bedroom shelf displaying them artfully to the world and letting everyone know how proud I was of their sharp unused tips. Fast forward 10 years to adulthood and recently I unpacked a box full of unused crayons and had absolutely no idea what to do with them until…   I found this great post over at 52 Kitchen Adventures that I just can not wait to try! All you need is crayons, a blow dryer, canvas/cardboard (some sort of artistic surface), and glue! When I finally get around to giving it a shot I shall share it with you all.

I hope everyone has a completely wonderful weekend!

I’ll admit it, I’m a big fan of Target. I live in a relatively small city and it’s one of the only big stores we have and I frequent it fairly often. What can I say… I enjoy the color red, but this week they did something completely out of the ordinary and didn’t publicize it or catch attention with flashy light, they just did it like it was the most normal thing. Target used a model with down syndrome grouped in with all the other child models… dare I say Included with all the other child models? It was brilliant and beautiful. Plus by not saying anything at all it’s been an incredibly positive campaign that I’m sure has brought lots of business. If you want to see the ad and read a very nice post written by a father of a boy with down syndrome  head on over to Noah’s Dad and check it out.

I found a great site this week through a link posted on Facebook, and if you like word games you’re sure to love it! It’s a vocabulary game where you’re given a word and you have to choose another word that means the same thing… pretty simple, but the real kicker is… for every answer you get right 10 grains of rice are donated to help stop world hunger. FreeRice is run by the United Nations World Food Program and is most certainly worth checking out.

As a child my Mom was always listening to Audio Books. She’d listen while she did the dishes, or while she worked in her studio and always seemed really happy with it. I preferred to read books, to hold their crisp pages in my hands and feel the tight binding as it rested in my palm all the while soaking up the sweet smell of fresh ink on pressed paper, but now I too am a mother and find myself with little time to actually sit down and read books, so when I stumbled across a site called Books Should Be Free and found hundreds of Audio Books to download for Free I decided to give audio books another chance, and you should too! I’m starting out by putting Alice and Wonderland on my ipod today.

Have you found any good links this week?

~The Giveaway Entry Method is at the bottom of this post~

My daughter SweetPea was born with a full head of hair, so much hair in fact that it entered the world a good 30 minutes before the rest of her. Since day one it’s been beautiful, dark and curly.

But a few months after she was born when the squirming and the sweating really kicked in, so did the tangled rats nest on the back of her head. I tried combing it after washing and brushing it when it was dry but nothing worked and everything just made it frizzier and frizzier until I gave up for a few days and she grew the beginnings of little baby dread locks.

I had to find a solution (preferable an organic one). I scoured the internet for a few days here and there and finally found a product I really wanted to try. It was Nature’s Baby Organics Lavender and Chamomile Conditioner made with more than 70% Organic Ingredients, Hypoalergenic, Cruelty Free and Vegan which are some of the most important things to me when it comes to the products I put on my baby’s skin.
