Crinkled Nose Giveaway-Win 25 Personalized Note Cards!

I am always on the lookout for quality invitation companies that have original products that I can also personalize-I have recently found a new favorite site~CrinkledNose.com!

Crinkled Nose.com specializes in unique personalized announcements, invitations and holiday cards, and they even have  magnetic products that definitley set them apart from competitors!  But don’t think this is your normal announcement and invitation company! The also carry note cards and pads, moving cards (perfect for military families), recipe cards, and so much more!  If personalized photo items are on your list, you should have no problem finding something you need at Crinkled Nose.com!

A friend of mine recently had an awesome reptile themed party for her son so I jumped at the chance to review the magnet thank you cards for her to send out to party attendees!  There was nothing but positive feedback to give on these magnetic cards!  Not only do they look great but now instead of receiving a normal thank you card that will probably go in the trash (let’s be honest), now all of Charlie’s friends have a fantastic picture to stick on their fridge of their good friend and a memory of holding and touching snakes (yuck) that will last a lifetime!  In addition to high quality cards, Crinkled Nose was with Charlie’s mom every step of the way during the creation of her thank you cards.  Customer service was top notch and emails were quickly returned and the cards arrived super fast! Look how great they turned out!

How would you like to win 25 personalized Note Cards or 18 Personalized Note Pads for yourself? In exchange of my review, Crinkled nose has agreed to give one of my readers their own personalized cards or pads!  Here’s how to enter:

AllerMates-A Hip Way To Show Allergies!

Do you have kids with allergies?  I have one friend whose son is deathly allergic to peanuts.  Unfortunately many children suffer with allergies and parents live in constant fear someone will unknowinly expose their child to something that could devastate their family.  AllerMates has create a product to help with this anxiety-and one that kids will allergies LOVE!

AllerMates has created kid friendly (adored) products that help spread allergy awareness.  Their products include T-shirts, lunch bag, dogtags, charms, and most recently, the very popular wrist bands.  Their items all feature colorful and fun AllerMates-characters that portray your child’s allergy. My favorites are “P-Nutty”, “Pint”, and “Crabby”. Can you guess which allergies they portray? Here are the answers plus the whole list of zany characters!

P. Nutty (Peanut Allergy)
Nutso (Nut Allergy)
Professor Wheatley (Gluten / Wheat Allergy)
Pint (Milk Allergy)
Eggie (Egg Allergy)
Crabby (Shellfish Allergy)
Super-Cillin (Penicillin Allergy)
Bizzy (Insect Sting Allergy)
Dr. Strangeglove (Latex Allergy)
Drift (Pollen Allergy)
Detective Fin (Fish Allergy)
Soy Cool (Soy Allergy)
Teeni Tahini (Sesame Allergy)
Nine (Cat Allergy)

I was sent the  “P-Nutty” wristband to review and gave it to my friend whose son has a terrible nut allergy.  He already has some other allergy identifiers but his mom loved the look and feel of the bracelet so she rushed it home to show him.  She immediately emailed me to let me know he thought it was so cool and awesome~so much so he insisted on wearing it to bed!  I was aware that he also has other allergies and his mom asked if there were bracelet that could hold more characters.  I was happy to report that AllerMates has the multi-allergy wristband that can hold  up to 6 charms!  Since my son has seasonal allergies (that people often mistake for a cold or sickness) I requested the pollen allergy wristband with the character “Drift” on it to check out as well~My 3 year old thinks he is hot stuff wearing the wristband!

One of my most favorite things about AllerMates is their affordability!  The individual wristbands are only $6.99 but if you need the multi-allergy one, it’s only $5.99 and each charm is a low $3.50!

How would you like to win an Allermate?  Here’s your chance!  AllerMates has given me a peanut wristband to giveaway.

You may choose one of all of the ways to enter:

1. Tell me who you would give the Allermate to if you win. 
2. Follow Momondealz via Facebook. Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.

Fit Moms For Life-Review and Giveaway

 

As many of you know, I am a mom of a 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 year old.  What some of you may not know is that before kids I was an exercise freak!  However, both of my pregnancies were borderline “at risk” so I was only able to walk during them.  That means I gained quite a bit of weight.  After having my second son, the only form of exercise I managed to fit in my schedule was running.  While running I am able to push both boys in the stroller and spend some time with them plus try to stay in shape.  My running journey definitely helped me shed the pounds and I am proud to say I am at my prepregnancy weight, that is before son #2.  I am still 10 pounds away from pre-son #1 weight.  So when I was offered a review on Dustin Maher’s Fit Moms for Life book and DVD, I was excited.  Even more so when I actually opened the book and started reading.

With this book and DVD program you will not find the “magic” solution to losing weight.  No fad diets here (thank goodness because I am so tired of hearing about success from friends doing the newest diet plan, only to see them gain the weight right back as soon as they “slip up”).  This program focuses on what really works and uses strategies that have proved to be true throughout the years-if you eat right and exercise, you will get fit!  I particularly like the section where Dustin explains the platuea many of us reach (like me) from just doing cardio alone-you must incorporate other training methods in order to have success.  Here are some other tips included in the book:

  • No amount of working out will compensate for poor eating habits.
  • Traditional cardio won’t burn fat, but strength training will.
  • Healthy enviroments=healthy families
  • Intense burst training will increase your results by 9X!

 

In the Fit Moms for Life DVD, Dustin provides basic yet effective exercises to help you get into shape.  Each exercise is fully explained and demonstrated.  I especially like that he does several exercises focusing on upper back and shoulders. This is to help us mommies who frequently slouch due to lifting our children or nursing for long periods of time~I know that I definitely am guilty of “rolled shoulders” so I was excited about the concentration on this area.

My favorite aspect of the video is the way it is divided.  There is a clear menu that allows you to watch and complete the video when and how you want to.  You can choose the warm up, strength section, cardio section, core section, stretching, and there are even sections for nutrition, taking measurements, and more!  Each section of the menu displays the length of time for each session so you can pick and choose based on your schedule~something that is crucial to me as a busy mom.

If you’d like to check out Dustin’s Fit Moms for LIfe yourself you can visit Dustin’s site.

Rubbermaid Clean & Dry Plunger-Review and Giveaway

No on e likes to discuss why you need a plunger, but the bottom line is, everyone needs one! 

Rubbermaid asked me to review their new and revolutionary Clean and Dry Plunger and I figured-why not?  I’ve got two boys who frequently think it’s a good idea to put items in the toilet so having a “good” plunger in the house is kind of a neccessity! 

So are you like me and wondering what in the world could be so special about a plunger?  Here are some descriptions from Rubbermaid:

The head and pole of the plunger is coated in NeverWet™ nanotech coating that:

  • Repels water, germs and other things Like car wax, the water beads up and rolls off instantly
  • Minimizes the spread of germs and keeps consumer’s homes cleaner and more sanitary
  • Won’t drip on the floor after use
  • Head plunges effectively and maintains NeverWet coating for thousands of cycles

 

So, does it work? 

In a word, YES!  I have to say that I am pretty shocked by the plunger’s effectiveness~it really does not drip!  As a germaphobe, I am really loving this plunger! 

The plunger will be available for purchase at Meijer, The Home Depot, Menards, Target, Wal-Mart and Rubbermaid.com at SRP of $12.99.  However, one of my readers can WIN a free Clean and Dry Plunger themselves.  Here are the ways to enter, you can choose one or all of the ways:

1. Leave a comment below telling me the most unusual item you or your child have dropped in the toilet (Mine would be a toy hammer).
2. Follow Momondealz via Facebook. Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
3. Follow Momondealz via Twitter. Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
4. Follow Momondealz via RSS. Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.

This giveaway is open to residents in the U.S. or Canada and will last until June 15th. 

Disclosure: Rubbermaid sent me the Clean & Dry Plunger in order to complete this review.  All opinions are 100% my own.
