Holiday HoHoHo Hop

It’s that time of the year, when many are making lists or actually shopping for gifts, so I’m here to help! I’ve joined up with the Holiday HoHoHo Hop to let my readers enter to win many prizes!

I am offering a Pro Smart Slicer, a much needed simple kitchen tool set.


Much like a Mandoline, but more affordable, this Slicer slices thick and thin. With a turn of the blade you can make julienne strips, or french fries. The second platform will dice, chop and shred. I have used it to make cole slaw, salads and sweet potato chips and, I’ve only had mine for a week. Included in the package is a cute peeler and a stainless pair of kitchen shears. The retail value of the set is $70. I have left enough of my skin on those old fashion graters, so I gladly retired it and put this in it’s place. I am sure you will enjoy it also. Please enter using the easy Rafflecopter form below. The contest is open to all US residents 18 years and older.

Make sure you stop by The Review Wire to Enter the Grand Prize. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a large Teach My Learning Kits of choice {RV $39.99} PLUS a Second Prize Winner will receive Teach My Kit of choice {RV $14.99}.

I love getting involved in large group giveaways–if it is a product I would love to win!! Wow–this is one of those giveaways. It is not boot weather in my town yet…but who decides when it’s boot weather? I think these are perfect for wet or cold weather. Good luck!! I hope one of my readers wins!!

It’s a fabulous giveaway from the Original Muck Boot Company!

Kid’s Hale Boots:

The Original Muck Boot Company makes a big splash for Fall/Winter boots this season with bright, pop color blocking for kids. Each style of the Kid’s Hale outdoor sport boot features bold, bright colors for either boys or girls. The Kid’s Hale boots are 100% waterproof all the way to the top of the boot, not just to the mid-sole like most boots on the market.

The stretch-fit topline fits snug around kids’ little legs, keeping warmth in and cold out. The boots are easy enough for little ones to put on themselves but stay put through any activity, which will make mom and dad happy. The collection stays true to the traditional Muck Boot quality, providing comfort, support, and protection for little feet! It’s a dream come true for parents – a boot the kids can get on themselves!

The Kid’s Hale features a 4mm SBR flex-foam bootie with four-way stretch nylon, a PK mesh lining, a diamond tread self-cleaning outsole, and 100% full-boot waterproof protection. The Kids’ Hale Boots are priced at $64.95.

Women’s Arctic Adventure Boots:

New for Fall 2013, the Arctic Adventure is a stylish choice for women who seek warmth, comfort and fashion. Those are the perfect trifecta for me! These casual all-purpose winter boots are as functional as they are comfortable, withstanding temperatures from -20°F to as high as 70°F. Aren’t they adorable?

Providing 100% waterproof protection, the boots feature a fleece lining, a 4mm CR flex-foam bootie with four-way stretch nylon, a new multipurpose rubber outsole for optimal traction and stability, and a stretch-fit topline binding that keeps warmth in and cold out.

Muck Boot has successfully mastered the quality and long-lasting all-purpose boot for hunters and outdoorsmen, and is now proving that Muck Boots are also a perfect fit for outdoorsy and stylish women. I do like getting out in the yard and raking mucky leaves, so I would love a pair like these.

The Arctic Adventure comes in Black/Purple, Black/Maroon, Chocolate/Dusty Pink, Black/Hot Pink, Geo Print, Black/Black, Green Flower Print, Swirl Print, and Pink Flower Print. The Arctic Adventure boots are priced at $144.95. Check out the Swirl Print, I think that’s my favorite.

As we head into warm weather (please no more snow!), I am also concerned about how my skin looks after a long, dry winter. I was so excited to test out 2 new products from Carmex. I remember how my Grandfather used Carmex and it was a staple in my sister’s purse – always! So, I have always been around the Carmex brand. I was thrilled when they sent me some body lotion product to try.

I received a full-sized tube of Carmex Hydrating Lotion and a full-sized tube of Carmex Healing Cream. I have always loved the way Carmex heals my lips, so I couldn’t wait to test out these two products.

First, the smell. There is a faint smell of Carmex, which is a great smell. It is not overpowering, but maybe for a guy it may have too much of a scent. After a few hours of wearing the lotion, there was no lingering smell. So perhaps it would suit a man’s need for soothing and creamy lotion.

Second, both products are easy to apply and work into the skin quickly. I didn’t feel anything other than a layer of protection. Some lotions can leave a greasy feel, but I didn’t notice it with either of the products. I used the Healing cream on my legs, which were pretty dry. After a few days of using the product I could actually see a difference. I tend to put on lotion after my shower, which helps to trap in the moisture also.  The Healing cream has increased levels of lanolin, which mimics the skin’s natural layer to maximize healing. It also contains pertrolatum and allantoin to soften rough skin. The Hydrating Lotion is loaded with vitamin E and ultra-concentrated aloe vera to soothe skin and deliver serious hydration, without greasiness. You can pick up your own lotions at many local drug stores. The retail price is around $5.99 each.

I am excited to see Carmex, a well-loved and well-known brand, expand into this market. It just seems like a natural for them to offer healing protection for more than your lips! As a member of the Carmex blog squad, I also received a cool, limited edition Carmex bright yellow sweatshirt. I wore it to the store last week and a clerk asked where I got it! She was a big Carmex fan also. So, Carla, here’s the review and giveaway!!


One lucky reader is going to win their own set of Carmex Cream and Lotion, pictured below. Just use the convenient Rafflecopter form below to enter. A winner will be selected via on April 13.
