CLOSED ~ Karen Neuberger Socks Review and Giveaway


I wear socks all Summer long, all Spring long, all Fall long and all Winter long. Okay not during the day but when I get home from work, there is nothing like putting on some soft cozy socks to pad around the house.

I have tried all types of socks but some of the best I have ever worn are The Karen Neuburger Chenille Lounge Socks. I had the opportunity to try them and I am a convert. Oh these babies are soft and comfy and warm! They feel smooth and silky. They are cushioned and I don't have to worry about slipping on the hardwood floors because the socks have rubber grippers on the bottom. Not only do they add extra cushion but prevent accidents.

CLOSED ~ Salada Tea Giveaway and Contest!

Last year I reviewed Salada Tea. You can read my review here. I am a tea lover and really enjoy this tea. I really love the Strawberry Green tea and drink it all the time.

Now if you love tea as much as I do, Salada is holding a great new contest. Salada Tea is looking for a National Spokesperson! The new spokesperson will help spread the “Unbottle Your Tea” message and earn $10,000!!!

Salada Tea launched the “Unbottle Your Tea” campaign in September 2008 to encourage Americans to choose freshly brewed tea as a healthier, more cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to bottled tea. Compared to bottled tea, freshly brewed tea made with tea bags contains 95 percent more healthy antioxidants, is less expensive and can help reduce the 135 million beverage containers wasted each year. The campaign also supports the Bottle Recycling Climate Protection Act, which would require all beverage containers – including bottled tea and water – to have a five-cent deposit. The “Unbottle Your Tea” website features health, environmental and cost-saving statistics, links to related articles, social networking, green activism, recipes and giveaways. For more information, visit www.unbottleyourtea.com.

From May 3 through June 13, 2010, anyone who enjoys tea, lives a healthy and environmentally friendly lifestyle and wants to help teach others how to do the same will have the opportunity to tell Salada Tea why he or she should be chosen as the brand’s new spokesperson by filling out an application form at the Salada site.

To be eligible, applicants must:

· Be willing to provide tips and suggestions to others for living a healthy lifestyle, attend health and environmentally focused events across the country, blog, tweet and continuously help spread the “Unbottle Your Tea” message

· Complete an online registration form

· Submit a video entry no longer than 30 seconds at the Salada site describing why he or she is the perfect choice for the role of Salada’s spokesperson

All submissions will be evaluated for quality by Salada Tea. The top 10 finalists, as judged by Salada, will be announced on June 28. The video submissions of the finalists will be posted on Salada’s YouTube channel where America will be invited to vote for their favorite. Public voting will be held from June 28 to August 1 at www.YouTube.com/SaladaTea. Based on results of the online voting and overall job suitability, Salada Tea will announce the winner of the spokesperson search and the $10,000 brand representative contract in August 2010.

No purchase necessary to enter or win. A registration form, instructions on uploading application videos and Official Rules are available at www.UnbottleYourTea.com/Spokesperson. The contest is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are eighteen (18) years of age or older.


And if you love tea, I have a great giveaway to give you a leg up on getting healthy Thanks to Salada Tea, I have a year of tea for one of my readers. Yes, that's 12 boxes of 20 ct. teas just for you!! How cool is that? I am jealous because I would love to win this prize. All you have to do is follow the rules and enter. How easy is that???

CLOSED ~ Cover Your Hair Review and Giveaway

I was contacted by Cover Your Hair to do a review of some hair products. Now I am all about hair products because I have a lot of hair and most of the time it is unruly and crazy. I am always on the lookout for cute and fashionable headbands and clips.

If you also like hair accessories then Cover Your Hair is the place for you. They have everything imaginable. They have hair clips, bandanas, hats, berets and so much more. All these great accessories come in different colors and styles.

One of the items I received was this Tiger Clip. This clip is really cute and let me tell you it is perfect for me. I have tons of thick wavy hair and find it impossible to find clips that will hold all my hair and control it. So I was glad when I put this baby on and it held my hair. It was not tight and it didn't break or fall off like many clips I buy do. It was great to be able to have something that controlled my "Cousin It" hair.

I took this clip on my recent vacation and let me tell you it was a lifesaver at the beach because it was so hot! I was able to use it in the water and it never fell off. It was great.

Covermyhair.com has so many cool items. I am eyeing the bandanas and from some of the cloth headbands for summertime!! You need to check out the selection. The styles are cute and the prices are reasonable!

And if you noticed the title of this post, it is not only a review but a giveaway! Yippee. Yes my dear readers, you have the opportunity to win a surprise box of Cover My Hair items worth $25!! You lucky peeps! You know the drill, read the entry rules and then enter!!

Mandatory Entry

I Am Off Again!

Yes folks, I will be MIA again. We are off to Costa Rica!! Yippee Skippy! We are visiting my parents. Costa Rica is really like my second home. I have been going there since I was knee-high to grasshopper and love it. My sister is now there for a few months so I get to see her too! YAY!

But now that I vlog, you might get some video clips this coming week. I am taking my netbook so I should be able to upload them to YouTube for your viewing pleasure. You won't get my traditional hotel room video but I can vlog about my mom's house where we stay. We only have a week so we will be totally busy.

We have to visit my dad and then we are taking a few days and going to our favorite place: Playa Hermosa. Then we will be in San Jose the rest of the time. We will probably see some of my cousins. I am dying to eat chicharrones and just to hang out with the family.

If you want to check out my vlogs or updates from Costa Rica, pop on over to my personal blog: Carolyn in Carolina. I usually post them there. Once I get back, I will have tons of new giveaways and goodies to giveaway.

I am Shopping for Mom and Dad!

With Mother's Day and Father's Day coming up, I have to put on my thinking cap and start shopping. Also my mom's birthday is in June and my dad's in July! So I am always on the lookout for cool gifts they might like.

One place I always visit when shopping for gifts is ShopNBC. I love shopping there because of the variety of gifts and the prices as well. Luckily, shopping for my parents isn't too hard. I was on the site and found a few gifts that I might be purchasing.

For mom, I found some really cute handbags like this Issac Mizrahi bag. She also loves jewelry and ShopNBC has tons of it. I know she loves pearls so I think some cute pearl earrings might be in her future.

My dad is a little harder to shop for than my mom. And my sister told me that he has been hinting for a new watch. I found some great ones on ShopNBC. I was eyeing the Movado and Invicta watches. I know he would love one. He would also love a GPS system since he is forever and day getting lost.

I am hoping mom and dad aren't reading this blog because it might ruin their surprise! But ShopNBC does have great and inexpensive gifts for your mom or dad too! The prices are great. The selection is huge. So make your shopping a little easier and save money and head on over to ShopNBC.

Closed ~ Silk Pure Almond Review and Giveaway!

I recently had the opportunity to try Silk Pure Almond™ almond milk. At first I have to admit I was a little reluctant because I wasn't sure it was something I would like. Then once I got the coupons provided for the review, I couldn't find it at my local grocery store. Finally, I was able to find it at another store in a nearby town. Yes folks, I live in a small town!

Now again my first reaction is almond flavored milk, what the heck. But I realized that I used to drink chocolate an strawberry flavored milk so this might not be so strange. Another good thing was that Silk Pure Almond milk has 60 calories per serving. WOO! Low calories products are my friends!

When I got it home, I had a glass. And let me tell you it wasn't half bad. It had a little hint of almond taste and it was quite delish. The next day I tried it with my oatmeal and that was actually really tasty because it gave my oatmeal an extra added punch! The good thing is if you like almonds this is great for you. You can use Silk Pure Almond the same way you would use regular dairy milk!

Plus as the website says: "Each glass is an excellent source of natural antioxidants and contains as much calcium and vitamin D as dairy milk, with no cholesterol, saturated fat, dairy or soy, and it's fortified with Vitamin E."

So besides being tasty, it is good for you as well. Not bad. Now I don't use that much milk except for cereal or oatmeal and some cooking but I would buy this again if I felt like having that little extra taste in my meals.

If you want to try Silk Pure Almond you can go here and get a coupon for 75 cents off. If you feel lucky then enter the giveaway. One winner will get 2 coupons and this totally cute Chicobag. And the second winner will win 2 coupons for Silk Pure Almond! Yay!

Mandatory Entry

Visit Silk Pure Almond™ site and come back and tell which recipe you would like to try.
