California Delicious Gift Basket Giveaway

California Delicious Giveaway
June 6-10, 2014
Open to US

I love giving gift baskets. You can personalize them so much more than a flower arrangement. Customize gifts for the tea lover in your life, a Father’s Day gift, the wine connoisseur and more. These California Delicious baskets are fun to send and even better to receive. So if anyone wants to send one my way, I’m an avid coffee drinker. 😉

Cutie P’Tubies Review & FLASH Giveaway: Making tubies cute one pad at a time!

Disclosure: I received complimentary product from Cutie P’Tubies in exchange for this review and giveaway. The thoughts and opinions below are entirely my own.

Cutie P'Tubies

It doesn’t seem to matter which barrier cream we use, how tight C’s g-tube button is, or how active he is…fluid leaks out regardless. We were using gauze for a long time. That always fell off if we didn’t use tape, but if we used tape then C’s skin would break out. I eventually gave up and didn’t put any dressing around it, resulting in some stains in that area of his shirts. During a late night Pinterest session, I came across some adorable g-tube pads. I didn’t even know that these existed! I clicked through to the Cutie P’Tubies Etsy store and found the motherlode of cute for G tube pads, J tube pads, Cecostomy pads and Trach pads.

Review & Giveaway: Tastefully Simple Gluten-Free Beer Bread Mix

Disclosure: As a blogger for Tastefully Simple, I receive compensation and product for review purposes. The opinions below are entirely my own.

I’m working on going gluten-free this year. It’s not easy. I mean, who doesn’t love bread? As a Tastefully Simple blogger, I’ve had the opportunity to try beer bread and it is delicious. I like to make it for parties or when we watch sporting events on TV. Going gluten-free means that the traditional Beer Bread Mix was out of the question. Thankfully I don’t need to give it up, because Tastefully Simple makes a Gluten-Free Beer Bread Mix!

Because 13-year-old girls like Griselda Shouldn’t Be Subjected to Gang Rape. #LocustEffect

Disclosure: As a member of the #LocustEffect launch team, I received an advance copy of this book for review purposes. The thoughts and opinions below are entirely my own.

Thirteen-year-old girls shouldn’t be plucked off the street on their way to church. It’s safe to say that Griselda’s abductors had no fear of prosecution for their crime. Why? Because the law enforcement system in Guatemala, like many in the developing world, are corrupt and of no use in protecting the poor. Impoverished victims cannot pay bribes or afford numerous trips to police offices and courts. For 4 billion people in the world, every part of the justice system is broken – police, prosecutors, courts. It doesn’t work. Gary A. Haugen writes in The Locust Effect, “Sadly, the public justice systems in the developing world not only fail to protect the poor from violence, but they actually perpetrate violence, protect perpetrators, and make poor people less safe.”

This HOLIDAY GIFT is sure to be on many Christmas lists this year, and I’m sure you know someone who would just LOVE to unwrap this Wii Disney Infinity Starter Pack this Christmas!

If C were old enough to play video games, he would be all over this. He loves all things Disney and I hear that there’s nothing cooler right now than Disney Infinity! Apparently you can build things in it and take the characters into different Disney movie play sets. Pretty sweet!
