$75 Whole Foods Gift Card & Eucerin Lotion Giveaway

holiday turkey hunt

Thanksgiving is over and now it’s time to think about the holidays. To start the season off we are having a Holiday Turkey Hunt blog hop where over 50 blogs are each offering prizes valued at over $25 and there’s also a grand prize giveaway hosted at The WIC Project for a $135 Amazon Gift Card.

Here at Making Time For Mommy I’m happy to introduce Eucerin, the skin care company that is sponsoring my giveaway. I’ve worked with them for the past 6 months or so and have learned so much about skin care and their products. Each month that I’ve worked with them there has been a theme of the month and for the month of November the theme is “Healthy Foods For Healthy Skin”. I have never put that much thought into how what I eat affects my skin but I’ve learned this month that it does. The skin experts over at Eucerin recommend eating foods with Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Omega-3s whenever you can.  That’s something I’m definitely going to make sure that I think about when choosing my weekly menu plan.

To help keep skin healthy, Eucerin is offering one of my readers a great prize package!

GIVEAWAY:

One person will win a prize package from Eucerin that includes:

$75 Whole Foods Gift Card

Eucerin Smoothing Repair Dry Skin Lotion

Eucerin Professional Repair Extremely Dry Skin Lotion

MY GIVEAWAY:

‘My Bakery Set’ by Wonderworld Toys {$40 ARV}

This eco-friendly, wooden set is not only adorable but was a big hit with my boys. It kept them busy for over an hour, which is normally something only cars and trains can do. What I loved most about the set was that it wasn’t just a box of play food. The “food” actually came in multiple pieces with a set of picture directions of how to make the two recipes. I thought the strawberry and orange garnishes that were included were a nice touch. It amazed me to watch my little two and three year olds pretending to cook just like mommy and daddy do and it was cute to watch them pretend to read the directions and put the desserts together step by step as the recipe showed.

Look what my boys “baked” me for breakfast :)

I thought the quality of the bowl and the utensils were very good. The only thing that I would have changed would have been to make the container, box, and recipe sheet out of heavier paper or even laminated paper. While the paper items didn’t rip the first couple times this toy has been played with, I am afraid that it may soon. Other than that we absolutely love this set and would recommend it to any parent or grandparent who has a little baker of their own :)

Another cool thing that Wonderworld Toys does is that they plant two trees for every one tree that they use. They have planted over 60,000 trees so far!

My giveaway is for a copy of Wife 22 by Melanie Gideon which doesn’t go on sale until May 29th. This book is part Bridget Jones’s Diary and part I Don’t Know How She Does It. {Review coming in May!}

Here’s an excerpt from the book:

“Maybe it was those extra five pounds I’d gained. Maybe it was because I was about to turn the same age my mother was when I lost her. Maybe it was because after almost twenty years of marriage my husband and I seemed to be running out of things to say to each other.
 
But when the anonymous online study called “Marriage in the 21st Century” showed up in my inbox, I had no idea how profoundly it would change my life. It wasn’t long before I was assigned both a pseudonym (Wife 22) and a caseworker (Researcher 101).
 
And, just like that, I found myself answering questions.
 
7. Sometimes I tell him he’s snoring when he’s not snoring so he’ll sleep in the guest room and I can have the bed all to myself.
61. Chet Baker on the tape player. He was cutting peppers for the salad. I looked at those hands and thought, I am going to have this man’s children.
67. To not want what you don’t have. What you can’t have. What you shouldn’t have.
32. That if we weren’t careful, it was possible to forget one another.
 
Before the study, my life was an endless blur of school lunches and doctor’s appointments, family dinners, budgets, and trying to discern the fastest-moving line at the grocery store. I was Alice Buckle: spouse of William and mother to Zoe and Peter, drama teacher and Facebook chatter, downloader of memories and Googler of solutions.
 
But these days, I’m also Wife 22. And somehow, my anonymous correspondence with Researcher 101 has taken an unexpectedly personal turn. Soon, I’ll have to make a decision—one that will affect my family, my marriage, my whole life. But at the moment, I’m too busy answering questions.
 
As it turns out, confession can be a very powerful aphrodisiac.

The software was easy to download on my computer and I even got a free cook e-book just for registering my software. The software comes with one cookbook which I found some great recipes in. The recipes were all organized nicely and I liked the search feature where I could search for the recipe I was looking for. or a recipe I could make with the food that is in my fridge. The software connects with the internet and makes it really easy to save things you find online. My favorite feature is that it syncs with our phones so we can use our phones at the store to make sure we get the ingredients for the meals we are making and in the kitchen so we can look at the recipe as we are preparing the meal.

Welcome to the Charity Hopping Around the World Giveaway Hop
Hosted by:
I Am A Reader, Not A Writer
Reading Away the Days
Reading a Little Bit of Everything
***
Purpose: To promote a charity that you support.

All bloggers will be giving away an item related to their charity or something book related.

****

The charity that I am featuring for this event is Autism Speaks. My youngest was diagnosed with Autism recently and Autism Speaks has really been a great source of information. They even have a 100 day kit they provide to families {free of charge} to help them get through the first 100 days after their child is diagnosed. See my post about their free resources here.

GIVEAWAY

My giveaway for this event is the DVD ‘A Mile In His Shoes’. This movie is about a child who has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism.

Here is more about the movie:

“Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur “Murph” Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team. As Murph sets out to recruit new talent, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher’s arm. However, Mickey’s parents are reluctant in allowing him to join the team because he has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. Murph convinces Mickey’s parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn’t realize just how much his new recruit will help the team’s game and, more importantly, their spirit. Based on a true story, A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.”

HOW TO ENTER

Leave a comment telling me why you’d like to win this movie.

For an extra entry you can share this giveaway with others through social media.

Giveaway ends April 4, 2012 at 11:59pm Central time. US Only.

Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A WriterJinky is Reading.

I am giving away a copy of Diary Of A Beverly Hills Matchmaker by Marla Martenson. I just started reading this book but have enjoyed the first couple of chapters. I will have a full review of it when I’m done reading it :)

Here’s some information about the book, taken from Amazon.com: “In Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker, Marla takes her readers for a hilarious romp through her days as an L.A. matchmaker and her daily struggles to keep her self-esteem from imploding in a town where looks are everything and money talks. From juggling the demands her out-of-touch clients to trying her best to meet the capricious demands of an insensitive boss to the ups and downs of her own marriage to a Latin husband who doesn’t think that she is ‘domestic’ enough, Marla writes with charm and self-effacement about the universal struggles that all women face in their lives. Readers will laugh, cringe, and cry as they journey with her through outrageous stories about the indignities of dating in Los Angeles, dealing with overblown egos, vicariously hobnobbing with celebrities, and navigating the wannabe-land of Beverly Hills. In a city where perfection is almost a prerequisite, even Marla can’t help but run for the Botox every once in a while.”

NanoStyle Jewelry Review & Giveaway {From Our Hearts To Yours Event}

necklace

WithOurBest button

Welcome to From Our Hearts To Yours hosted by Life With Two Boys, With Our Best, and Mama-Nibbles. There are over 100 bloggers participating in this hop, and each blogger has their own prize package of at least $25 worth of Valentine-related items! So after you have entered my giveaway, I encourage you to hop along and see what the other bloggers are giving away too!

My sponsor for this giveaway is NanoStyle Jewelry. I received a beautiful necklace for review. The necklace chain was very good quality and the pendant was black onyx. On the pendant is “I Love You” in 120 different languages engraved in 14 karat gold. I’m not normally a silver mixed with gold jewelry wearer but I love the uniqueness of this necklace. It also came with a key chain that has a mini magnifying glass on it so that you could read the words on the necklace. I thought that was a nice little touch that really made this company stand out. I can’t wait to wear it!

I am really excited because I get to give away a $50 gift certificate to this online jewelry store. You can see more items that they sell here. I liked the “I Love You” jewelry the most but they also have ones with crosses that were pretty, too.
