CozyEarth Bamboo Twin Comforter Giveaway {Ends 12/12}

Your child spends about 3,650 hours sleeping in their bed each year. Conventional fabrics used to make comforters and blankets contain all kinds of chemicals, pesticides, and even highly toxic fire retardants. It is so important to invest in natural, non-toxic bedding for their well being when possible. Wouldn’t you agree it is more important than the latest toys, gadgets, or entertainment? That’s why the generous folks at Cozy Earth are giving one of you a chance to win this twin size bamboo comforter!

Non-traditional holiday cards: What do you send?

My day job is in retails, so there is a lot of talk about holiday greetings this time of year. What exactly do we say to customers when they shop in our stores? The answer differs from company to company, but it is something I think about in my personal life, too.

Because we have friends and family that celebrate so many different holidays, we always send out very holiday-neutral cards in December. Each year, I browse the holiday selection at Shutterfly and I find more Holiday Cards than I could possibly imagine. Last year, I chose an autumn design and added photos of our boy playing in piles of leaves. But this year, I’m not sure. From religious, scripture-based cards to ones that just say “Happy EVERYTHING!”, Shutterfly has something for every card-sender’s style. Traditional, modern, funky – you name it, they’ve got it, and they add new ones each year.

Are you ready to Style the Look with Seraphine?

After my recent review of the maternity dress I received from Seraphine, I fell completely in love with their line of chic, comfortable, versatile maternity and nursing fashion.

Well, it seems I’m not alone! The lovely Jessica Alba has been spotted making Seraphine a regular part of her wardrobe, too!

She’s been spotted rocking this super cool Seraphine leopard print scarf all over town, looking fabulous, of course! That’s right…Seraphine carries accessories, too! (It took me until this pregnancy to realize how far you can stretch your maternity wardrobe with the right accessories!)

I need to get this scarf because I want to pair it with red shoes too! LOVE!!

The folks at Seraphine want to know how YOU would style an outfit around the very same scarf, and I’m helping them host a contest so you can do just that! All you have to do is style your own look with items from Seraphine, and you could win this fabulous scarf AND a $100 gift certificate to Seraphine!

Fall into Green Giveaway: #Win an Endurance XL Compost Pail! #FallGreen

Welcome to the Fall into Green giveaway hop!

This event is hosted by Happy Mothering and Happy Green Mama through the Green Moms Network. Each participating blog is hosting an eco-friendly giveaway worth a minimum of $25. You can find the list of participating blogs at the bottom of this post.
 I’m doing things a little differently for this event, and I’m pretty excited about it!

I thought about what kind of great “green” prize I would like to win, and one thing in particular came to mind. It’s a permanent part of our kitchen that we use every day…

Up for grabs:

The Endurance Extra Large Stainless Steel Compost Pail!

This is a serious compost pail. I’ve had it on my counter for nearly a year now, and we use it SO much. With a 1.5 gallon capacity, it’s big enough to keep up with the most veggie-rific families, and it has 2 charcoal filters in the lid to ensure an odor-free kitchen. AND, it’s dishwasher-safe!

Our compost pail sits right next to our sink, and always looks shiny and new.

In my opinion, you won’t find a better composter, or a better online retailer than EcoMom, where you can pick up this beauty for $48.69. If you don’t already know EcoMom, head over there quickfastinahurry and check out their unbeatable selection of eco-friendly and organic products, from baby food and gear to household products and health and beauty care for the whole family. I don’t know what I’d do without them!

While you’re there, don’t miss the EcoMom blog. The folks over there are always working hard to further their mission of providing safer product choices, but it doesn’t stop there. Programs like their baby bottle and sippy cup trade-in program are truly inspirational!

Enter to win your own Endurance Compost Pail using the easy Rafflecopter form below, then visit the other blogs on the linky (also below.) Thanks for hopping by, and good luck! :D
