Mineral Make Up

amyw Friday, January 29th, 2010

2126652 Mineral Make Up I love make up and anything cosmetic like. I love trying out new things, colors, and products.  And, being a mom, unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of time to get ready in the morning and play around with stuff.  I’m always in a time crunch or have a small boy pulling on my leg or getting into things in the bathroom.  So, time is of the essence. But, I do like to at least “put my face on” most days to avoid the stay at home mom syndrome of frumpiness.

Valentine’s Day Gift at Buy.com

amyw Sunday, January 17th, 2010

I love Buy.com and am very lucky since I do the promotions for them each week so I always get a first look at what deals they are running.  Besides the fact that there are monthly coupons, there are also often great deals on particular items. When I saw this one for earrings, I immediately thought of Valentine’s Day and these poor, clueless men that never know what to get.  swf jwl peora10earrings1 Valentines Day Gift at Buy.com

Plush Life Like Dogs

amyw Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

basset houndHow cute is this basset hound?  Looks pretty real, too, eh?  Well, this is only one of  many types of these plush life like looking dogs at PetCareRx.  I came across these while doing my promotions for couponbuzz.com and thought they were just one of a kind.    They literally have every kind of dog you can imagine made into these stuffed toys.  I guess some would just collect them  and using the word “toy” would not be appropriate. But, I would for sure buy one of these for my boys who love to pretend that they have a cat/dog to play with and feed/walk, etc.

Fragrance Gift for Mother’s Day

amyw Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

441w Fragrance Gift for Mothers DayI recently discovered the ease of buying perfume on line this past March on my mother’s birthday.  She has long worn a perfume called Gem but she couldn’t find it anywhere.  She asked me on a recent trip to Paris to check the duty free shops for it.  After looking in several, one of the sales clerks informed me that it had in fact been discontinued.  So, I decided to look on line to see if I could still find some unopened bottles out there.  And, there were!  One of the places that sells it is Fragrance X.  I found others on Ebay, but the prices at Fragrance X were better and I knew it was a legitimate company so it would be safe and trustworthy.  I was afraid I’d get some skunky old bottle from someone on Ebay.  Anyway, the shipment of the perfume safely arrived at my mom’s house just in time for her birthday and it was perfect!  So, if you have a fragrance that your mom used to wear, or even one you loved but can’t find anymore, try looking online and check out Fragrance X on couponbuzz.com as well.

Great deals for students and teachers!

amyw Saturday, April 25th, 2009

Man, do I wish the internet was as popular and accessible back when I was a student in college, and even a teacher!  It’s amazing how quickly things have changed.  Heck, I didn’t even have email until my senior year in college, and certainly no internet browsing until my later 20’s.  Anyway, it is great to see how many places online now offer deals for students and teachers.

I found one software company, Adobe, which offers special discounts on all of their software for educators.  Things like Photoshop, Acrobat, and Creative Suite.  These are awesome tools that everyone uses and they offer them up to 80% off if you can provide proof that you are a student or faculty member.
