The Eden Fantasys Giveaway Kicks Off the Dirty Thirty Bash!

11:09 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



*links in this post will take you to an adult website*

Okay, so I meant to post this yesterday.... but I was a little too hungover from celebrating all weekend, so here goes nothin'...

So, I had a pretty good time celebrating turning thirty, minus the hangover part - haha. What made my weekend so amazing was spending time with my family and friends, and knowing that they cared and made the extra effort to celebrate with me meant the world. I love the people in my life and feel fortunate to know each and every one of them.

One of the companies that I have grown fond of and feel fortunate to have developed a relationship with is Eden Fantasys. I am so happy that Eden Fantasys wanted to be a part of The Dirty Thirty Birthday Bash! I mean, come on, they can help put the "dirty" into "thirty", if you know what I mean - and I know that you do! I know that I keep bragging about the huge variety of items that Eden Fantasys carries, but I really can't help myself. They just have so much cool stuff to talk about! One of my favorite things about Eden Fantasys is just how versatile they are in catering to the needs of the customer. They are able to meet the needs of anyone and their commitment to customer satisfaction is like no other.

In a previous post I spoke about my Shunga Tendernesss and Passion Collection, found in the Sensual Love section of the site, that I received from Eden Fantasys to review. My husband and I love the kit and think that this collection is pretty awesome. I was poking around the sensual love section a little more and I discovered that they also sell a variety of candles too! I love the mood and tone that candles can set in a room. Eden Fantasys offers all types of candles including: Aromatherapy, Mood, Travel, Incense, Beeswax and soy wax.

The one that caught my eye first was the Shunga Massage Candle. This is my new must have item that I am just dying to try! Seeing as I had a great experience with the Shunga Passion Kit I just know that this candle will be amazing. Besides, I know that it has great reviews from other Eden Fantasy patrons and has received four out of five stars based on the rating that it has received from reviewers and customers. I have read all six reviews for the candle and not one posted anything negative about it. Some of the best professional massages that I have received the masseur used wax and I found that the wax allowed the masseur to glide over and penetrate the muscles much better than anything else. I think that this candle is an interesting way to add to a sensual massage. There are four flavors to choose from - Fruit, Rose, Vanilla and Lavender. Which makes this not only a fun massage tool but an aromatherapy candle as well. In fact, this candle makes it into the top ten best selling aromatherapy candles on the site. Here is a great description taken from the site as to how this candle works:

  • Soybean wax melts in small temperatures creating sensually warm (not burning) massage oil.

  • To use it burn the candle, wait 20 minutes until it melts then pour small amount into your palm with included spoon and gently apply to desired area.

  • Use this oil for relaxing erotic massage or as after bath oil to moisturize skin.

This candle sounds like so much fun to try and so relaxing too! I love the idea of the molten wax warming up my tired, thirty year old muscles on top of the relaxing massage. You can buy the Shunga Massage Candle for only $18.99.


Another awesome candle that I found was the Illume Happiology Candle. This candle has received a five star rating and is one of the top ten beeswax and soy wax candles sold at Eden Fantasys. This is a high quality, luxury candle that is made with 100% natural wax (soy, palm and beeswax) and blended with essential oils. This candle will burn for 40 hours. An added bonus is the hand blown glass that holds the wax has a great design and is reusable. The Illume Happiology Candle comes in three scents: Mint/Yuzu, Sunflower and Agave/Bamboo. You can get yours for $19.99. One last item that I thought was super cute, were the His and Hers Quickies set of four mini candles - perfect for quickies! The Quickies Set is another candle creation designed by Illume and are specifically designed to set the scene with scents that will inspire passion and sensuality. Cleverly packed in red glass this set has a four star rating and is one of Eden Fantasys top ten mood candles purchased. The His and Hers Quickies set can be yours for $23.99.

One of the reasons that I am such an advocate for Eden Fantasys is the wealth of knowledge that they love to share with the Eden Fantasy community. On the very first page when you click on the Sensual Love category there are some great articles that you can read that explain why sensual love is so important in a relationship. Sensational Sex: How the Senses Affect Our Experiences is all about how sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch affect not only our real-life sexual experiences but also our fantasies. Senseless Sex: Sensory Deprivation, is a different article that focuses on the discussion on whether or not sensory deprivation is helpful or hindering to achieve maximum sexual excitement, performance, and response. I found both articles to be very interesting reads and I would definitely reccomend checking them out.

Please go visit Eden Fantasys to learn more about all of the Sensual Love products that they have to offer.

Aloha Friday! - Gonna Party Cause Its My Birthday!

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.


Who is your favorite comedian?


Its my 30th birthday today! I am celebrating by spending the night at a great hotel, the one we got married in, and celebrating like its going out of style! Starting the night off will be dinner and drinks, followed by a seeing the comedian Jo Koy at the Moore Theatre in Seattle. I love stand-up comics and he is pretty funny. After that I will be headed to have some drinks with a few friends. Fun, fun, fun! I do like Jo Koy and think that he's hilarious but he is not my very favorite one. My very favorites are George Lopez, Chris Rock and Chelsea Lately. I watch her religiously and discovered Jo Koy on her show. So, my question to you is who is your favorite comedian?

Aller-Ease Flip for Fall Ultimate Checklist - and My Flip for Fall Video

2:26 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

As promised, here is a video that I made to share with all of you how our family prepares our house to Flip for Fall, enjoy!









The Flip for Fall Ultimate Checklist


Real Moms Give Advice on top 10 ways to Flip for Fall

The season is changing and no matter where you live, homes everywhere are “flipping
for fall.” That means cleaning out closets, changing décor and special cleaning in
preparation for fall allergens and closed windows. Aller-Ease, manufacturer of allergen
filtration bedding products, asked TheMotherhood, an online community of mom
bloggers, to share how they Flip for Fall. Aller-Ease collected the tips and created the
following Flip for Fall Ultimate Checklist.


  • Wash furniture slipcovers and throws that aren’t on your bed and snuggle up with
    clean, allergen-free blankets.
    
  • Keep your dryer vent clear: Excess lint in the dryer vent will cause extra dust to
    be released into your home. Speaking of laundry, flip those laundry loads quickly to
    avoid mold and mildew.
    
  • Take down mini blinds, or at least while the curtains are washing, wipe blinds
    clean of all dust and debris. While you’re at it, wash windows and seal windows
    along the edges.
    
  • Change air filters, vents and maybe even call in the chimney sweeps!
    
  • Clean the entire house using disinfectant, but especially don’t forget the phone
    and door handles that are often overlooked. Steam clean the carpet as well.
    
  • Create a Flip for Fall checklist for all the areas in your home (hall closet, master
    bathroom, beds, pantry etc.). Once an area has been cleaned, check it off and
    include the date.
    
  • Clean out old items in the garage and attic, and get seasonal decorations ready.
  • Use bins to organize by holiday or season so that you can easily locate them.
    
  • Go through kids clothing and have them do a fashion show to make certain that
    everything fits. Clean their closets while everything is out.
    
  • Make sure your flashlights have batteries and stock up on emergency candles.
    
  • Change the look and feel of your home with simple changes like hanging a fallthemed
    welcome sign or changing your doormat, bring out seasonal candles, table
    decorations and even placemats.

As you know, there were tons of duplicate tips that were submitted. Aller-Ease will be making sure that all of those that submitted the same tip that was chosen for the checklist will be put in a random drawing for one of the prize packs. Seems fair right?

Aller-Ease plans to alert the checklist winners next week.


There is still time to enter my giveaway for an Aller-Ease Prize Pack that includes a Queen Mattress Protector, 2 pillows with zippered covers and 2 more zippered pillow covers. The deadline for my giveaway is September 23rd.

Win Aller-Ease Products to Help You Flip for Fall

This year, include Aller-Ease pillow and mattress protectors in your fall routine. To help prepare you for the onset of fall and indoor allergies, Aller-Ease is giving away 10 Aller-Ease Deluxe HMT pillow protectors, five Aller-Ease Deluxe HMT pillow protectors with Allergen Barrier Pillows, and one grand prize winner will receive an allergy-proofing bedroom makeover for the entire home (up to four beds). From September 21st through October 30th, interested individuals can enter to win at www.Aller-Ease.com.

PearlParadise.com - Pearl Necklace Review and Giveaway

9:54 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma




If you have read any of my other posts spotlighting jewelry, you know by now that I love a great necklace. I think that a necklace simply completes an outfit. It can also dress it up or keep it casual. Ahh, the power of a beautiful necklace. One thing that I most definitely believe is that every woman should have a pearl necklace. Its a classic, timeless piece that goes with anything and everything. My husband bought me a pearl necklace for Mother's Day last year, and I loved it! However, it was a triple strand, which I felt was just a little too fancy for my everyday uses. Nonetheless, I happily accepted it! I have craved for a beautiful single strand of pearls forever, so I was so excited when PearlParadise.com asked me if I would review one of their necklaces. Needless to say it was a resounding YES!
PearlParadise.com was founded in 1996 and has grown into the largest online pearl company. What has accelerated its growth the most is being able to offer their pearls for 80% below retail. With more than 100,000 satisfied customers the word of mouth about the value that PearlParadise.com offers is spreading quickly. PearlParadise.com has been featured in several respected publications including: The Wall Street Journal, Entrepeneur Magazine, USA Today, In Style, and Modern Bride - just to name a few!
Featured above is a picture that is similar to the gorgeous pearl necklace that I received from PearlParadise.com. It is a white, 7.0 - 8.0mm freshwater pearl strand, 16" in length, with a white gold clasp and come individually knotted on twin silk. I had my choice of length, 16" or 18", pearl color, and clasp type - white or yellow gold. I love this necklace! When it arrived I immediately compared it to my other pearls that I own, and this necklace actually seemed to have a bit more luster. I actually think that the strand itself is put together much better than my triple strand. I tried them on and loved how they fit! I have to say that I wore them to work the next day and I received some great compliments from the ladies that I work with.

Not only was the strand of pearls beautifully presented in a gift box but also included with the necklace was a certified appraisal prepared by a GIA graduate and a pearl care kit with instructions and a polishing cloth. This necklace is available for purchase at PearlParadise.com for only $120 but will retail for $600.

Nearly all pieces also come with a second-appraisal guarantee: If a customer has the jewelery appraised on their own, the company assures them that it will be valued for at least five times the price the customer paid PearlParadise.com. And all pieces come with a 90 day money back guarantee. PearlParadise.com has also partnered with the Better Business Bureau and the Safe Shopping Network to help ensure the quality of service that they provide to their customers.

I know what your thinking, how in the world are they able to sell such high quality at affordable prices? I know, because I thought the same thing. The first thing I did was to do an internet search for the exact item. All of my results yielded the same findings. All though I did find other online pearl distributors, none of them compared to PearlParadise.com. I then read about how and why PearlParadise.com is able to offer such low prices to their customers.

The owner of PearlParadise.com, Jeremy Shepherd, discovered that he could purchase high quality pearls directly from the pearl farmers in Japan, Hong Kong, and the Guangdong Province in China, cutting out the middle man. In addition he also has learned the native tongues of his suppliers which enables him to forge closer relationships with them.

Not only did he find it important to have the best prices available but also to include the best education about pearls on his site as well. This makes it far easier for someone like me to understand the differences in pearls and why some pearls are more expensive than others. In the Pearl Education section of PearlParadise.com you can learn about pearl quality, lengths, grading, types, history and care. Building this strong foundation for his customers he was able to build much of his business based on customer referrals. And because their best customers are their repeat customers PearlParadise.com has a points program that provides discounts for the customers next purchase. What is even better, is they also provide discounts for their first time customers! I have never visited a website of this nature that automatically tells the customer what code to punch in on their order to receive a discount. To me this speaks volumes for their confidence in their product. They know that you will tell your friends about the discount and the wonderful pearls that you received, while earning points towards a discount on your next purchase.

I found this very informative video on YouTube from a couple of years ago when Your LA Today went to the PearlParadise.com showroom in LA and asked Jeremy Shepherd a ton of great questions about pearls.




PearlParadise.com offers necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, pendants, loose pearls, you name it, they have it. With so many pearl choices I find it hard to believe that you wouldn't find exactly what your looking for.

The PearlParadise.com site is easy to navigate and search for what you consider to be the perfect pearls. You can search by jewelery style, pearl type, pearl color, price and from their collections. I love the strand of pearls I received and I would definitely reccommend PearlParadise.com to any of my friends or family. Go check them out today and see what you have been missing!

PearlParadise.com is graciously offering one super, duper, lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader a necklace exactly like the one that I received. The winner will have their choice of pearl color, strand length - 16" or 18", and yellow or white gold clasp.

Accessorize Your Cutie with a $25 Worth of Product from My Sweet Baby Jane

12:05 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Being a mom that is trying to finally get my own business up and running, I love to spotlight other amazing moms that have accomplished this difficult feat. I know exactly how much hard work that they are putting in behind the scenes and I applaud them! Christine, who is the mom behind My Sweet Baby Jane, is no exception. She works very hard at making her products as well as maintaining her website, which by the way, looks awesome.

At My Sweet Baby Jane you can find some adorable little gifts to accessorize your sweet little baby girl up. From hair bows to hats to tutus - My Sweet Baby Jane has you covered. Not only will these accessories doll your little cutie up but they are very affordable so you don't have to worry about breaking the bank.

One of my favorite bows that My Sweet Baby Jane has to offer right now is the Boutique Style Brown Cupcakes Bow. This bow is 4 inches across and comes securely fastened to a partially lined French barrette. The high quality gross grain ribbon had heat sealed ends to prevent fraying and is hand sewn to the barrette for added durability. Here is a picture of this lovely bow.



One of my favorites that My Sweet Baby Jane has to offer is their Pink Starter Set. If you are like me and can't ever make up your mind about what to pick, this set is for you! The Pink Starter Set includes 4 bows and a pink crochet headband. More specifically, 2 medium sized pinwheels, 1 small korker, and a caterpillar ribbon sculpture clip. The clips are set on a partially lined alligator clip with no slip grip. You can attach them directly to your little ones hair or to the crochet headband. You can also attach them to a kufi hat, which is not included. This super cute Pink Starter Set is only $10!



Speaking of Kufi Hats, My Sweet Baby Jane has some adorable ones. My favorite is the Butter Kufi with Pink Flower. The Pink Flower clip can be worn attached to the hat or all by itself. All of the kufi hats are made of high quality, soft cotton, and each hat comes with a different clip. All hats are one size fits most - toddler through adult - and are available for $12-$14 each.



I have to say though, that my absolute favorite thing offered at My Sweet Baby Jane are the Tutus that come with a Matching Wand. This probably sticks out to me the most because it makes me think of my neice and how much she loves to play dress up. This is definitely making the Christmas list this year for me, and not only for her, but my BFF's daughter as well. I think that the Hot and Light Pink Tutu with the Wand is my pick for them. The tutu itself is about 10 inches long and is made with an elastic waistband that measure 16 inches. This perfect set is only $15!



Go visit My Sweet Baby Jane to see what other cute stuff that they have to offer. They are always adding new products to their inventory so remember to check back often. If for some reason you don't find exactly what your looking for My Sweet Baby Jane can also create a custom order - just ask!

My Sweet Baby Jane is offering one lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader $25 worth of their choice in products!

How to Enter: Visit My Sweet Baby Jane and comment back on this post telling me what you would spend your $25 on if you were chosen as the winner.

Getting Ready for the Dirty Thirty - Eden Fantasys Sexy Lingerie Review

7:03 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


*Links in this review will take you to an adult site*

Well, with one week left to go until I turn thirty I am excited as all get out! This will be my last week of my twenties and I plan to have as much fun as I can. With three kids I spent most of my twenties being pregnant and tending to small children. Needless to say I haven't spent much time out having fun and doing things that I enjoy. Its been all about the kids. One thing that I am counting on my thirties bringing me is more time to spend with my friends and some much needed quality time with my husband. Lucky for me, I am starting things off in the right direction with some sexy new lingerie that Eden Fantasys provided me with to review.

Speaking of turning thirty, I hope that you are all getting excited for my Dirty Thirty Ultimate Birthday Bash! I know that I am and I can't wait to reveal to you all the fabulous gifts that will be donated by all the awesome sponsors for the Ultimate Birthday Gift. I simply couldn't celebrate the Dirty Thirty without one of my favorite sponsors, Eden Fantasys. I have had such a great working relationship with them and I think that they are a fantastic company. They may be geared towards adult entertainment, but its in a solid, educational, customer service oriented way. Which I believe sets them apart from all the rest. I can really see that they care about the members that frequent their community and want each and every user that visits their site to have a great experience, leaving their site more informed when they left than when they came. I can also see that the Eden Fantasy community of users are very helpful to each other and are genuinely looking for good advice and ready to give it to those in need.

Anyways, back to me and my sexy lingerie! Eden Fantasys sent me this Fuschia and Black Chemise with Robe and Thong Set, featured below.



I received my package, in the usual way, a plain USPS box with WebMerchant noted as the sender on the box. Eden Fantasys sends all products in this discreet way, so you won't have to worry about someone seeing just who you are ordering products from. I love that they take this step to protect your privacy.

The lingerie came perfectly packaged in a clear wrap, all beautifully held together on a soft, matching fuschia lingerie hanger. It was all that I expected and more! I loved the colors and how the fabric of the chemise matched perfectly with the trim on the robe. I couldn't wait to wash it and try it on! I washed it gently in cold water and it was ready to go after I hung it to dry. I tried it on for my husband and he loved it on me! It was so nice to get some new lingerie. Being on a budget, buying myself sexy lingerie is way far down on the list, so needless to say, I was a happy girl too.

Even though the chemise covers most of my body, the lacey see through floral detail shows just enough to make me feel sexy and confident when I am wearing it. The chemise also has adjustable ribbon shoulder straps too so I could get it to fit my body perfectly. The bustline has a fuschia, satin floral trim that is covered with black lace to tie in nicely with the chemise. The fuschia, satin robe has three quarter inch sleeves with the lacey trim that matches the bustline of the chemise. A matching fuschia, satin thong completes the look. This gorgeous set is available in size small all the way up to 3X/4X. It also comes completely in black if you don't like fuschia.

Normally I find something that is made out of lace to be a little itchy on my skin. I was so pleased to find out that the lacey chemise was so comfortable, and my skin did not feel itchy or scratchy at all. For only $29.99 this set is a definte must have. You can sex up your look and stick within your budget too. These days, being able to have something I want and staying within my budget is a major turn on!

In my last review for Eden Fantasys I mentioned that they have a great rating system on their products. The lingerie is no exception. The set that I received has a five star rating and two verified reviews. There are ten votes that helped it to achieve the five star rating. There is also a popularity rating for it that shows it is one of Eden Fantasys top 50 based on sales statistics. Another aspect that I think sets Eden Fantasys apart from the rest is that if you are still unsure about an item you could always go to the forum and post your concerns. Usually within minutes someone will reply to your post and give you the advice that you are looking for. This just reiterates the fact that Eden Fantasys is an all inclusive site, tailor made for the needs of its customers.

Below are few more of my budget friendly favorites from the lingerie section of the site that I would love to add to my collection.

The Pardon My French Cami Set for $28.99,



the Sexy Pinstripe Chemise Set for $38.99,




and the Satin Padded Corset for $37.99.



If you are looking to spice up your lingerie drawer Eden Fantasys is the place for you. They have so many styles, sets, colors and sizes to choose from that there is literally something for everyone. It is also really easy to search the site for exactly what your looking for. You can select lingerie items by category, size, price, color, top style, bottom style, pattern, closure, brand, new arrivals, best sellers and top rated. From there you can narrow it down even further by new products, price, rating or bestsellers. I also really like that they model all the lingerie in the pictures online with the use of a mannequin. Sometimes when you see something on a real model you feel inadequate, for one reason or another, because you will be constantly comparing your body attributes to hers. I know when I see lingerie on models with large breasts I tend to shy away from purchasing it because I don't think that I will be able to fill it out as nicely as the model does. I definitely think that I look better than a mannequin though!

With the Eden Fantasys return and exchange policy you have nothing to lose. Returns and exchanges are available for orders shipped within the United States. Lingerie items can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of your order shipment. If your order is damaged and defective those products can be returned or exchanged for free. The only thing that can't be refunded is the cost of shipping for unwanted items. But with a flat rate $5.95 standard shipping charge or free standard shipping on orders of $59 or more, what have you got to lose?

Check out Eden Fantasys today for the sexiest and hottest gear online. Don't forget to check back on September 25th, for the Dirty Thirty Ultimate Birthday Bash, and see what Eden Fantasys will be donating to the Ultimate Birthday Gift, as well as another great giveaway that Eden Fantasys will be featured in.

Aloha Friday - Swear Words

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.


Do you use made up swear words in front of your kids?

Unfortunately I have a sailors mouth. Something that I have had to phase out a bit since I have had children. There is just something about hearing your kids swear that just sounds totally wrong, in which I have had first hand experience. I know its not lady like to swear but its such a hard habit for me to break. One of the things that I do around my kids is to replace real cuss words with miscellaneous words. For example, the S word is replaced with snap and the F word is replaced with frick or frack, depending on whatever comes out first. I have noticed my oldest copying and frick is definitely in his vocabulary. He does know what the real words are, but he also knows not to say them too, thankfully! So, that is why my question is: do you use made up swear words in front of your kids?

Sandra Magsamen Handmade Nursery Gift Giveaway!

10:25 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Photobucket

If you didn't all ready know, I have been trying to get my own website off the ground for about a year now. In my webstore I plan to sell unique handmade gifts for new and expectantant moms. I have tons of ideas and plans, but my attention to detail is holding this project way back. Not to mention that little thing called, a super busy, hectic, blog-filled, family life that gets in the way - just a little bit. So you can imagine how awesome it felt to be contacted by Sandra Magsamen, award winning author, artist, and handmade gift extraordinaire.

Let me give you just a little bit of background on Sandra Magsamen. She has been making and selling products worldwide and touching people with her creations for twenty years. Sandra was inspired by the birth of her daughter and started creating her items from the heart to make it easier for people to share how they feel about the ones they love. In 1991 Sandra founded Table Tiles, Inc due to the growing demand of her handmade originals. Within ten years Table Tiles, Inc had expanded into a multi-million dollar gift business. That is so amazing and so inspiring for someone like me! All of her success with Table Tiles, Inc led her to begin to license her ideas. Since then Sandra has designed successful collections with significant licensees including: Lenox, PBS, Scholastic, and Corel, just to name a few.

In January of 2008 Sandra debuted the launch of Messages from the Heart BABY at JC Penney, which is a new infant lifestyle brand. This line includes layette, sleepwear and accessories that are sold in baby boutiques in over 1000 stores and JCP.com. Sandra's line celebrates new babies with messages such as "made with love", on clothing, albums, bedding, decor and ceramic message plaques, just to name a few. Here is an example of a couple of my favorites from this line.












That same year Sandra's Wishes and Kisses line debuted at Wal-Mart. This newborn apparel collection was made with bright colors, bold prints and soft fabrics. Each item in the collection, also with inspiring messages, are set to encourage snuggles and smiles, and all things that make babies happy. Below are a couple of my favorite outfits from this collection. They are so reasonably priced too!












In Spring of 2009 Sandra debuted at Wal-Mart her exclusive gift boutique, From the Studio of Sandra Magsamen. This line also carries the same warmth and positive messages with an artistic flair. She sells a variety of items all under the ten dollar mark such as, plaques, mugs, candles, key chains, etc... This new line features thoughtful and creative gifts for all occassions. The gifts are designed to let your loved ones know how very special they are to you.

Over the last 12 years Sandra has published 35 books and sold more than one million copies. "Living Artfully" was published in 2006 and has become Sandra's signature lifestyle book. In this book she believes that Messages from the Heart can make life more enjoyable and reminds people to approach everday actvities with their own unique outlook and embrace the world with their own style.

Sandra has also written several articles for Oprah.com and has been featured in O magazine (yay Oprah!), Woman's Day, Inspire Your World, and Parents Magazine, just to name a few. To read more about Sandra, and all of her amazing accomplishments, visit her site at www.SandraMagsamen.com.

When you visit her site you will find that Sandra also has her very own online store where you can buy unique handmade items that are created and personlized by Sandra with you in mind. Each piece is signed as well as personally gift wrapped by Sandra just for you! You can only find these items on her site. Available for purchase are ceramic plaques, books and custom handmade items. Below is an example of a custom handmade ceramic plaque, perfect for any nursery.



I love this handmade ceramic plaque! It is so unique and I love that it is personalized just for your baby. In addition to nursery plaques Sandra also makes custom plaques with wedding dates and names and ones that you can create a message all your own. You could have so much fun with coming up with your own message and having Sandra deliver it on a ceramic plaque. No wonder she is the queen of gifts from the heart!

Please go visit http://www.sandramagsamen.com/ and learn more about the fantastic pieces of art that she creates and stands behind. She is a true Mompreneur and role model to women such as myself that have a dream of being successful at doing something that they love. She is truly inspiring and I am thankful that I have gotten this chance to get to know a little bit about her.

Sandra is graciously giving THREE very lucky Pretty Pink Momma readers a nursery plaque, similar to the one shown above, of their very own!

How to Enter:
Visit Sandra's site and comment back on this post telling me what your favorite handmade item is that she offers. You can also include items from any of her lines. You must be specific. This giveaway is open to US only.

Aller-Ease Giveaways Galore! Visit the Flip for Fall Circle and See What I Look Like!

10:31 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma




That's right! I was so excited to be a part of the Flip for Fall Challenge that I decided to finally reveal myself. The catch is, you will have to visit the Flip for Fall circle to see my picture. Now you will finally know the face behind the blog, and see what I really look like. While your there you may as well submit your tips! Read further to see how you can win Aller-Ease product that will help you Flip for Fall in your house too.

A couple things we do in our house...

As I have mentioned in a previous post, Aller-Ease, the maker of allergen filtration bedding, has partnered up with TheMotherhood for their Flip for Fall Challenge. This campaign is all about sharing your tips for fighting indoor allergies as well as showing Aller-Ease how you prepare your home for the Fall and Winter seasons. Even if you don't realize it you probably do certain things like changing your bedding or your home decor to get ready for this change. For example, I know one thing that I always do is change from my light weight down comforter to my heavy one.

To help ease the suffering of indoor allergies at our house one of the things that we have done is to install a germicidal ultra violet light in our heating and cooling system. Ultraviolet technology is used to safely sanitize the air for the last 75 years. Scientists have been tapping into the power of UV for since 1903. The germicidal UV cleanser that I have installed shines 800 times brighter than the sun, and as an energy saving device the it uses less power than a night light. It effectively kills all DNA based microorganisms. This helps prevent the spread of bacteria, mold, funguses and viruses. All of these can trigger allergic reactions in people of all ages. Symptoms are itchy eyes, runny noses, headaches and tiredness, even asthma, hay fever and chronic bronchial infections. All of these can be the consequences of a dirty air duct system.

We had ours installed in February of this year and we have noticed a huge difference in our mornings. Prior to the cleaning of our ducts and the UV light, last Fall and Winter, we would all wake up so stuffy and just icky feeling. Everyday without fail, I felt so sick. The day would go on and I would feel better. Then once again in the morning I would feel all stuffed up again. This was happening to my husband and oldest son too. Now when we wake up we don't have those symptoms any more. It has improved our breathing 100%.

We also changed to an electrostatic filter for our furnace, just like the one in the picture to the right. This filter is amazing. We don't need to continually purchase new paper liners. We simply pull it out and rinse it clean once a month. This is something that we defintely do in our home to Flip for Fall. An electrostatic filter cleans the air by using static electricity to trap the attracted airborne particles that are held by the static charge. They are released when the filter is washed. It traps dust, pollen and airborne pollutants within the static fibers. I have really noticed a difference in the amount of dust that I have around the house. I still have dust, that's for sure, but it doesn't seem to add up as quickly as it did before. Dust, and dust mites, are a huge contributor to allergy problems.

I will posting a video soon sharing with you all how I Flip for Fall. I will also include in this post a whole bunch more of my tips. A huge thank you goes out to Aller-Ease for providing our home with 2 Deluxe standard pillows with zippered covers, 2 more Deluxe pillow covers and one King size mattress protector. I will definitely be showing these off in my Flip for Fall video, so stay tuned...
