Shop with Shopetti $125 Giveaway! Ends 8/19

This post is brought to you by Shopetti and as always my opinions remain completely my own!

I just heard about a new site and I think it is fabulous.  It’s called Shopetti.  It was created by a mom, like myself who buys a lot online from several different stores and thinks that there has to be a quicker way to shop.  Unlike myself who just thinks about the idea, she actually put feet behind the idea.  She created this site where you can shop from multiple stores all from one site and check out with one basket.  Genius, right?  No more clicking and clicking around.  This is all in one place.

Are you as excited as me about this?  I was playing around today and I was checking out items from The Children’s Place, Toys R Us, Victoria’s Secret, and Pottery Barn.  You can go shopping by browsing their featured items, by searching by brand, or by store.

You can even sign in via your Facebook or Google account and it will save your shopping cart for you and you’ll be automatically notified when new sales go live on your favorite stores.  How cool is that?  There’s even a Chrome toolbar extension to make your online shopping even easier!

You can check out how Shopetti works by watching the YouTube video below but then be sure to enter to win a $125 shopping spree below!  Good luck and happy shopping!

Don’t forget to enter this giveaway!  Just think of all the fun things you could buy for $125!

Julep Giveaway 14 Polishes in 14 Days

I have a very exciting giveaway for you!  Starting today, you can enter for a chance to win a brand new Julep color before it comes out.  How exciting!  Plus, since I did choose the color myself I have to tell you how absolutely gorgeous it is. : )

Fourteen lucky winners will each receive a Julep nail polish in the shade Evie. Approximate retail value is $14 each.  One winner will be chosen each day until this giveaway ends.

Julep nail polish offers sophisticated, classic colors to beautifully compliment any look as well as bright and fun colors to liven up any outfit.  Its long-lasting formula provides days of chip-resistant wear.  Julep is a 4-Free polish meaning that it doesn’t include 4 nasty toxins that some other brands do.  Julep is toluene-, phthalate- and formaldehyde, and formaldehyde resin free.  If you haven’t tried Julep polishes before now is a great time to do so!  Plus, if you love nail polishes as much as I do you might want to consider their Maven program where you pay a small fee and have polishes shipped to you monthly.  I’m a big fan!

Mickey and Minnie Nail Art

The color Evie was featured in my Mickey and Minnie Nail Art that I featured a few months back.  The color is a tad lighter than the picture portrays it.  It’s much lovelier in person, trust me.

Evie Julep Nail Polish

Here is a picture that Julep just put up on their website and I think it portrays the color much better.  You can purchase the color Evie by going to  Yay!  I’m so excited to see my nail polish for sale online.  Go buy it…then enter our giveaway which is ending very soon!

We’ll have the same Rafflecopter form throughout the giveaway and I’ll choose a winner each day and announce the winner below.

Winner #1: Lisa Marie

Winner #2: Daisy T.

Winner #3: Beeb A.

Winner #4: John H.

Healthy Home Makeover & $500 Giveaway

Would someone consider me “green?”  I don’t know.  Maybe.  I’m not green for the sake of being green or because it’s trendy.  I actually despise the trendiness of it.  I’m mostly green because I’m frugal.  Plus, since having a baby I’m ever aware of BPA, parabens, and formaldehyde in everyday products.


While researching safe products for my baby and my home I came across MightyNest.  They’re a company that’s dedicated to helping parents create healthy, safe homes by being an online store, resource center, and community of engagement and support, not judgment.  Doesn’t that sound good?  Here’s a little more information from their website:

Founded by two parents, their mission is to give families the ability to research, get advice, and buy high quality, natural, non-toxic everyday products all in one place.

From kitchenware to skin care, MightyNest‘s safety experts have built the web’s broadest selection of products that are free from known toxic ingredients such as BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Lead, Melamine, Formaldehyde, Parabens, and more.

MightyNest seeks to help people feel motivated and empowered to make changes in their lives, whether large or small.

Since my little one was born I’ve been working on replacing old pans that are chipping.  We’ve replaced our old grill where the top of the lid was chipping off and falling in our food.  We’ve also replaced old, old melted plastic containers that were full of nasty toxins.  I’m a sentimental person so it wasn’t always easy getting rid of things that were passed down to me from my family or my husband’s family.  Brand new shiny things helped to ease the separation pain but because of the cost I’m only replacing a little at a time.

I found a giveaway to help me replace more items at a quick rate!  MightyNest is giving away $500 through their Healthy Home Makeover Pin it to win it Challenge.  I’ve started pinning to win already and you can too!

Mighty Nest Pin to Win Giveaway

The giveaway is pretty simple really.  You just repin your favorite items from MightyNest’s “Healthy Home Makeover” board onto your own Healthy Home Makeover board.  There are things for every room in the house and even a good amount of cute baby toys.  Trust me, once you start pinning it will be hard to stop.

That’s it though!  Just pin and you’re in.  For more information go here and check the rules on the specifics.
