Rite Aid Dove Plenti Points & $50 Giveaway #SpeakBeautiful

Post sponsored by Lunchbox. Opinions are 100% my own #speakbeautiful

Beautiful daughter

I love my sweet little girl. I want her to know that she’s beautiful, not by the world’s standards like her features are symmetrical and her button nose is bumped at the right angle. Though she does have many American beauty attributes, I want her to realize that beauty comes in different shapes and sizes. And one day I want her to see that confidence is beautiful.

Girl's Drawing

I think middle school is the place where confidence shys and strays or blossoms and blooms. Remember that young age when you weren’t sure whether your outfit made you look cute, puffy, or like a baby (because who at the age of 12 would be seen dressing like a baby? We were all trying to convince our mothers it was time to shave our legs for heaven’s sake!). Bless the day when we finally figured out that confidence and grace gave us the mature, beautiful look we all desired from Seventeen.

High School Beauty

Also as preteens (and teenagers, and college girls, and wives, and moms…), we stood by mirrors and talked about which of the features we didn’t like and expected each other to join in.  While psychology tells us that self-actualization is a part of growing up, it doesn’t seem that women grow out of criticizing ourselves. Last year WOMEN sent over 5MM negative tweets (Twitter alone!) about beauty and body image. For the sake of our next generation, I beg you to start positive trends with me. We can change the flow of verbal self-harm to self-care. We gawk that people have the “audacity” to abuse themselves, but being overly critical of ourselves has the same impact mentally. So I’m going to start a different, positive trend now. I love my hair. I love that it’s thick and strong.

Choose Beautiful

Mainstream media often doesn’t encourage us to promote our natural beauty, but I really appreciate Dove’s message which backs what I want my daughter to believe. (By the way, Dove products at Rite Aid can earn you 300 Plenti points when you buy $12 worth of products now through the 26th of September.  Plus, you can stack coupons to drop the final price even further! But you’ll have to hurry, the current newspaper coupons are set to expire on 9/20.) I wish more companies would support women in this battlefield of the mind.  

Take a few moments and check out their “Speak Beautiful” video.

Papa John’s Super Bowl XLVII Coin Toss Pizza Giveaway: Enter to Win Free Pizza!

Papa Johns Super Bowl Coin Toss


The Official Pizza Sponsor of the NFL and Super Bowl XLVII announced the details today of Papa John’s Super Bowl XLVII Coin Toss Experience.  This year it will include a new twist!  Each fan will vote “heads” or “tails” as individuals at papajohnscointoss.com  or at Papa John’s Facebook page.  The ones who correctly guess the Super Bowl coin toss will be awarded one free large topping pizza.


“Unlike last year when everyone who voted was cheering for ‘heads,’ this time people tuning in will be cheering for either ‘heads’ or ‘tails,’ depending on how they called the coin toss individually,” said Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who unveiled the promotion in a television commercial that debuted Sunday with Papa John’s Founder, Chairman and CEO John Schnatter and sports commentator Jim Nantz, who will call Super Bowl XLVII. “This should make it even more fun, and it guarantees that Papa John’s will give away more pizzas.”  We agree with Peyton, we love this promotion!!  Good luck!


No purchase is necessary and only legal residents of the 50 United States (D.C.) 13 and older may be eligible to receive a prize.  Void where prohibited.  Voting takes place from 1/20/13 to 2/2/13. For Official Rules, visit www.papajohns.com.

Finish Jet-Dry Review and Giveaway Ends 1/6!

Update: This giveaway is now over.  Out of 205 entries, our winner is Dianna T.!  Congratulations, Dianna!!!

Everyone has household chores they like more than others, right?  I don’t mind dusting or vacuuming but I despise ironing.  Second on my most hated list is emptying the dishwasher.  I don’t know what it is about it that bugs me so but I would rather wash all the dishes by hand than to empty the dishwasher.  Maybe it’s the bending over part that gets me, who knows?  What’s worse than emptying it is when I do and find that the glasses still have spots on them!  That means that I have to dab a little water on each glass and scrub it dry.  Not fun.

Jet Dry

When I was offered a chance to review Finish Jet-Dry I was excited for the opportunity to try it out free of cost!  However, I was skeptical.  I had never used Jet-Dry before or any rinse aid actually.  I was thrilled to find that I could empty the whole bottle into my dishwasher and I wouldn’t have to think about it again for 40 washes.  40 washes.  Awesome.

Not only is Jet-Dry low maintenance but it works wonders on my spotted glasses.  Hooray! All of my glasses were sparking clear and squeaking clean!  I would pay good money to have these streak-less glasses but luckily with Jet-Dry I don’t have to!  Jet-Dry is an affordable product that saves me time.  Time is something that is precious in my family so I’m grateful for any product that will save me a few minutes here and there.

One bottle of retails for around $3.99 and will last 40 washes!  You can read more about Jet-Dry by visiting the Finish website.  You can also snag a $0.50 off Jet-Dry coupon!
