"I'm Not Ready to Make Nice"

Skinn – Dimitri James Product – Giveaway – Ends 12/09/09

I had the opportunity to try a Skinn Product this week.  I received 2 samples one to keep and one to giveaway.  Decisions, decisions, I really had to think hard on which one I would like to try and which one I’ll sacrifice for a wonderful Networking Witches reader.

First a little about SkinnSkinn’s motto is “Refuse to settle for anything less than perfection”.  Skinn was launched in 2002 by Dimitri James.  Skinn offers products only through televised home shopping, the internet and exclusive, privately owned spas through out North America.  This has allowed Skinn to reach the maximum amount of people, while keeping overhead low.

The first product I received was Skinn Orchid Gel Mattefying Treatment. Skinn’s Orchid Gel Mattefying Day Treatment Seal will not only keep moisture and treatments in your skin all day, it also keeps dryness, pollution and sun damage out! This one-of-a-kind, exclusive formulation is the perfect no-shine, under-makeup base that reduces the visibility of pores and imperfections. Orchid Gel will help keep your skin looking matte, fresh and bright all day long, like the exquisite flower that you are.

The second product is Skinn Bright Eyes – Eye Enhancing Treatment.    This super hydrating eye brightener utilizes the latest technology in color pigments to virtually erase the look of fatigue and dark circles around the eye area without the weight and feel of heavy concealers. The light texture appears completely natural while covering dark circles and imperfections while hydrating the skin for a smooth, un-lined look. Special incandescent pigments give eyes a bigger and brighter look, even on the dullest of days.

Buy it and enjoy free shipping on orders over $50.

Win It!

One very lucky Networking Witches reader is going to win Skinn Bright Eyes – Eye Enhancing Treatment.

Brella Bag – Hands Free Umbrella Holder – Ends 12/14/2009

Every now and then a new product comes along and you think “Yeah!  I need that and I can’t believe someone thought to make it.”  This is how I feel bout the Brella Bag.  The Brella Bag holds your umbrella while leaving your hands free to do other important tasks (in my case grabbing my sons hand in a parking lot).  The Brella Bag can be used while operating any mobility device such as a walker, wheel chair, power chair etc.

The Brella Bag is lightweight and comfortable with adjustable straps and guaranteed durability.  It has an additional zipper pouch for small items (think MP3).  Brella Bags can be personalized with your company name or favorite designs.  Show your team spirit and have your teams logo embroidered on your Brella Bag.

Brella Bag comes in one size but has adjustable straps.  A golf umbrella works best with the Brella Bag but there is a snap to give the option of using another umbrella with a shorter shaft. 

I really like the Brella Bag and find it useful for keeping the wet snow off of me and the items I’m carrying.  I really like the zipper pouch so that taking a walk under the Brella Bag keeps my mp3 safe.  It took a little getting used to because it is a little different but it does work and works great.

Buy It!

Purchase 2 or more bags and save 20% by entering “Special” in the coupon section of the order form.

Win It!

Brella Bag is giving one Networking Witches reader their own Brella Bag.

Mandatory Entry:

Go to Brella Bag and tell me which umbrella would go best with your Brella Bag.

Bullying & Cyber Bullying

Joie and I once worked as managers for a virtual world website. It was quite the experience. We witnessed first hand at how cruel children can be. We heard stories about how they picked on this one or that one at school too. Or how this member was prank calling the other member and hanging up, and so on. One virtual world member, treating others as an outcast. We were even unfortunate enough to witness a child, or what we had to presume was a child, threatening to kill herself. Serious business, and it was emotionally hard to deal with.

As you can see, we have moved past the whole virtual world thing, and we are both very thankful for that. That’s a whole ‘nother story of it’s own.

When we ventured off with our blogging, and decided to truly make a “real go of it”, I really had no idea what we would encounter. To be completely and totally honest, I had no clue at the can of worms I opened when I made the post the other day in regards to momdot, and her post that is basically making fun of the differences in people. Yes, I tweeted my post, and asked for retweets. No, I do not regret it, not at all. I still stand by how I feel. However, what has come to light is that it IS a form of cyberbullying. From a so called “mother”. Tough title when your making fun of others as if on the school yard playground.

Twitter has gone haywire. And it seems to me that Trisha and/or one of her “yes men” have created a whole new twitter account to air someone else’s dirty laundry. How that pertains to the illogical behavior that she expressed on her blog, I guess I’ll never know, or understand. Pretty hard to rationalize grown ups acting in such a manner. As of the most current, without putting forth too much effort to really find out who said what, and who has done what, I have found that I’m banned, lol. Big shocker isn’t it? The post that she made making “funny” jabs at people that are not her version of “normal” is password protected. Why? Why bother locking the entry? She prides herself on hairy controversy. But folks, please tell me. What is controversy without debate? What’s the point of it?

Somewhere yesterday I read that Trisha tends to send nasty tweets, just in time for you to see them, and reply then deletes them. I really didn’t think an adult would stoop so low, boy was I wrong. I was lucky enough to recieve one of her nasty tweets, which disappeared quickly. Too bad I didn’t think to grab a screen shot. Oh well, I’m wearing my big girl panties this week.

Some have asked me this through messanger, email, or twitter, if it’s my daughter on her blog. No, Trish did not make fun of my daughter. I guarantee if it were my child on her blog, I’d go redneck on her ass. And apparently so would a few of you. Thanks!  I hope that girls mother comes across the blog and picks her apart for pure fun and ethical enjoyment.

I want to close this post, by asking the rest of you one thing. Please, remember it’s an outrage because of what she posted (ew others agree with her) is not ethical behavior, please, don’t stoop to her level. Don’t bring yourself down on what you are fighting against.

Take the right channels here, be and act like the adult with ethics that you are. Here are some links that I don’t mind sharing. You don’t have to visit them, it’s all your choice.

Please Blog Responsibly!

Kudos to Jackie, at Monkey Mayhem <– Big squishy bewbie hugs

Not very nice, and although I don’t agree with the whole tactic of this, it does sport some info. I got the email. Thanks, I think.

She’s More Than A Number – Seems she has started a petition.

DelTheDad – A bit harsh, but seems his family was the object of momdot’s affection at one time.

My original post. Surely Not Judgmental

A Blessed Mommy

Tie Buddies Giveaway Ends 12/06/09

Tie Buddies was kind enough to send us a set of race car Tie Buddies for review, and are offering one of our readers their choice of Tie Buddies for a boy or a girl.

Tie Buddies are really cute, and a wonderful idea. I do want to start with there is a choking warning on the front of their package, I do think that’s responsible of them. As these are small, and if removed could very well pose a choking hazard.

These are an aid to help your child(ren) learn to tie their shoes. Not only does this help to learn to tie their shoes, it helps them tie a more secure knot. It’s not fun at any age to tie, and retie a loose shoe lace.

They are sized well enough to slide right onto laces of shoes, and little hands can maneuver them about. Creating simple stories with your child, and teaching him/her to tie their shoes can create lasting memories, and priceless quality time with your kids.

As I mentioned above we were sent Race Car Tie Buddies. Ours are blue squares, 2 with red, 2 with green race cars on them. The girls Tie Buddies are Fairies and Wands.

They really are so cute! And I think fairly priced at $8.99. Tie Buddies, ship quickly, and their site is rather easy to navigate. Easy navigation to shop on a website is a big plus from me. Nine step instructions are printed on the back of the package, as well as on their site in case the packaging gets ripped while opening them.

Win It!

Tie Buddies is offering one Networking Witches reader a set of Tie Buddies.

Monave Rosemary Lavender Shampoo and Condition – Giveaway- Ends 12/04/2009

I love the smell of Rosemary and Lavender and was thrilled to get Rosemary Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner from Monave’.  They both smell really good and when using the same scents for your hair your scents don’t clash or over power.

The Rosemary and Lavender shampoo is lightly foaming and completely plant based.  It cleans hair and leaves hair soft and weightless.  This shampoo is  suitable for normal to oily hair and normal to dry hair.  It works with most all hair types.

Deborah Bilezikian, owner of Monave Mineral Cosmetics

The Rosemary Lavender Conditioner is light, nourishing, and detangles after use. The condition works best when it is applied after the Rosemary and Lavender Shmapoo.  What I really like about this conditioner is that I can pronounce every ingredient.

Both of the Monave’ hair products are nice and worked well on my dry curly hair.  The smell stuck with me for the day and it was a nice natural smell.  Not a product smell.

Monave manufacturing is done with out any animal testing.  95% of Monave products are vegan.  Paper, glass and plastics are recycled in the Monave warehouse and we ask that our customers do the same.

The Monave name comes from “Modern”, “Natural”, and “Versatile”.

The Monave line of mineral cosmetics includes, Lip glosses, lipsticks, blush, eyeliners, bronzers,mineral makeup foundation, as well as naturally formulated facial skin care and natural hair care products.

WIN IT!

Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Been Through BUT I’m Still Thankful

Nobody knows the trouble any of us have been through.  We’ve all had our own fair share of troubles.  Everyone, seems to think someone’s life is better but I have learned that the people who have money don’t have health and the people that have health don’t have money.

We are all swimming in the same fishbowl and if you count your blessings and become content with what you have chances are your life will fit you much better and you will have something no one else has…….LOVE!

I lose my patience a lot and it’s usually Redneck Witch that helps me find them again.  Usually by throwing my own words back at me such as “How do you eat an elephant?”  One bite at a time of course.

I am also finding that the people with the most opinions and that constantly find the world funny, or laughing at those they feel are pathetic are the ones that we need say a prayer for because something in their life is not allowing them to count their blessings and to feel empathy for others.  If you ever want to share the perfect secret between you and God say a prayer for someone and don’t let anyone know.

I am very very thankful for all I have, the friends I have made, and for picking up and moving on when I was ready to quit at life.  After all we are all moms and should be supporting one another and our families.
