Discover the Carrera Vingtage Collection


Carrera, the leading fashion and sporty eyewear brand has recently relaunched their "Vingtage Collection". The signature "Champion" sunglasses from the collection are worn by Lady Gaga in the music video of her latest single "Bad Romance."


The highly unique and recognizable aviator shape of the "Champion" sunglasses is inspired by the original design first introduced in the early 1980's and produced in Optyl (registered trademark of Safilo), known as an extremely lightweight and hypoallergenic material. The distinctive and ultra fashionable accessory enhances Lady Gaga's sensual and confident performance in the video. That's why the charming fashion icon would only choose to wear Carrera.



The trendsetting brand Carrera now invites you to discover their new vintage collection with its symbolic retro-look eyewear. Some of you may find the video bold and unconventional, but the song is awesome and you can clearly see the “Champion” sunglasses in action.


This post is part of the Carrera media campaign and I'm being compensated for helping spread the word about Carrera's new product.

Pillow Pets Review & Giveaway

~~The giveaway is now CLOSED~~
Have you met Pillow Pets, the rising pop star in the stuffed animal world? What is a pillow pet? It's a pillow AND a stuffed animal, snapped up into one. Invented by a San Diego mom of two, Pillow Pets transform from a standard size pillow into a snuggly pet with one strap that closes underneath. This simple but clever design makes a plush toy more functional and a pillow more desirable. Made of ultra-soft, machine washable chenille, Pillow Pets are a fun travel pal, warm bedtime buddy and cute cuddly friend all rolled into one.


Pillow Pets are the proud winner of the 2009 iParenting Media Excellent Product Award and the 2009 Dr. Toy Best Vacation Product Award. They come in 20 adorable animal varieties including jungle animals, farm critters and sea creatures. I was sent a free Pillow Pet-Hippo for review. It has a friendly, cute face and is indeed super soft. Both my son and I love stroking its back and cuddling it. It only takes a second to turn the standing hippo into a comfortable pillow. It's definitely a wonderful addition to our family.


Pillow Pets are affordably priced at $19.95 (with up to five additional Pillow Pets for $15.95 each) and can be purchased online at www.GetPillowPets.com. Due to their tremendous popularity, Pillow Pets are temporarily out of stock. You may request to be notified via email when they become available again. For now, you can still order Pillow Pet Backpacks and Blankets to match select pillow pets.

The Giveaway
The owner of Pillow Pets has generously offered to give one of my lucky readers a Pillow Pet of her choice! I'm sure the winner's child will love this unique holiday gift.

Saving Money with Usborne Books Review & Giveaway

~~The giveaway is now CLOSED~~
As a division of Educational Development Corporation, Usborne Books & More is dedicated to providing quality children's books at affordable prices. Jolene, mom and Usborne Educational Consultant, has kindly introduced me to her store Saving Money with Usborne Books and provided me with $25 worth of books for review. I happily chose ABC Touchy-Feely Board Book for my son and 100 Animals to Spot at the Zoo for my niece.

The ABC Touchy-Feely Board Book instantly grabbed my son's attention the moment I pulled it out of the box. He couldn't wait to let me read it with him. The book is filled with colorful and cute images, enhanced with touchy-feely patches, foiling and a variety of textures. The smart design of the book helps stimulate my child's interest in learning. He loves reading the book with both his eyes and his hands. The touchy-feely features allow him to better associate pictures with real objects and to feel the shape of each letter. I love that the book uses high quality cardboard to make it more durable. This book is part of the Touchy-Feely Board Book series that fits the developmental needs of babies and toddlers aged 9 months and up.

100 Animals to Spot at the Zoo is made up of 52 beautifully illustrated spotter's cards designed for children 6 years or older. Besides a colorful picture, each card also includes vital statistics (such as scientific name, family, length, diet, habitat, and survival status) and extra fun facts (such as their unique physical traits and living habits) about the featured animal. The cards are good for a virtual trip to the zoo or wildlife park, and can be helpful props for a kid's presentation in class. Other spotter's cards in the series include 100 Rocks and Minerals and 50 Horses and Ponies. The series is definitely worth collecting and keeping for your nature-loving child.

Saving Money with Usborne Books not only helps you to get the most out of your educational investment for your kids, but also strives to simplify your shopping experience. You may browse their collections by age group, by subject/theme, and by book features. Each product page contains clear information about the intended age group and what to expect in the book. Some books can be previewed on line. And you may easily switch to other titles in a series or related titles by using the drop-down menus under the shopping cart.

To sweeten the deal, Jolene holds a monthly drawing of $50 in free books among her newsletter subscribers. If you are also interested in starting your own home business with Usborne Books, Jolene is ready to help too.

The Giveaway
Jolene has generously offered to give one of my lucky readers $25 in free books from her store. That'll be great Christmas gifts for your kiddo.

Men of a Certain Age Premieres 12/7


On Monday, December 7, 2009, TNT Original Productions will bring us a whole new TV series known as Men of a Certain Age. Starring award-winning actors Ray Romano (title character from Everybody Loves Raymond), Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise) and Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street, Salem’s Lot), the show follows the lives of three ordinary men in their late 40s and explores the unique bonds of male friendship among Joe (Romano), Terry (Bakula), and Owen (Braugher) as they navigate through the changes and challenges of mid-life.
TNT has recently invited me to an exclusive preview of Men of a Certain Age's first episode. I didn't think I would be very much into a men-centered story (No offense, please). But darn, I was wrong. The incredible cast deeply impressed me with their natural acting and I laughed my little heart out at the truck scene (I'll refrain from giving out any spoilers. You've got to watch the show yourself when it airs!). Each main character is so well-presented that it's not hard to tell them apart after the first few minutes of the show. Their lives seem real and un-dramatic as if you were watching a home video from your neighbors or acquaintances. Well, it's still too early to tell how the ups and downs will unravel in the show, but it'll sure hook you up if you love good humor and stories that you can easily relate to.

The premiere episode of Men of a Certain Age is set to debut Monday, 12/7, at 10/9c, following an all-new episode of the TNT’s hit series The Closer. Please remember to tune in for this all-star performance. For now, you may check out this short preview along with more details about the show at TNT website.

Uncle Sam's Cereal Review


I have known the Uncle Sam brand for years but haven't really tried any of their products until recently. I received two packages of Uncle Sam's Cereal for review through Extraordinary Mothers and I'm very pleased with my new tasting adventure.

I don't usually stock up on food, but cereal is an exception since my husband can hardly start his day without having a bowl of cereal in the morning. We have at least 10 boxes stored in the pantry. We love experimenting with new flavors and new varieties as much as we do eating healthy foods. That's why I'm really excited to be introduced to Uncle Sam's Cereal-Original, which features a unique blend of all-natural toasted whole grain wheat flakes and flaxseed.

The cereal not only provides an excellent source of dietary fiber and Omega-3 Fatty Acids, but is also low in sugar and in sodium. Wow, it meets perfectly my criteria for a healthy and nutritious breakfast option. Honestly, it took some time for us to get used to the feel of flaxseed in the cereal. I'm impressed with the crunchiness of the cereal and its right degree of sweetness. I do like it better with added dried fruit bits and nuts. My husband prefers to have it with honey (Remember that he has a sweet tooth, haha). Uncle Sam's Cereal also comes in Mixed Berries flavor. I'd like to try it next time I shop for cereal.

High fiber food is highly recommended for everyone because it may help reduce the risk of diabetes, aid in weight loss and lowering cholesterol, and promote regularity. It's not always easy to find food choices that are both nutritious and delicious. I therefore strongly encourage you to consider Uncle Sam's Cereal as a healthy addition to your breakfast menu.

Thanks so much to Extraordinary Mothers and U.S. Mills for this great review opportunity.

Little Music Lovers Review

Little Music Lovers, is a four CD series featuring beautiful music from famous composers like Bach, Beethoven and Mozart along with well-known lullabies. Released by Universal Music Classical in late September, the series makes a great Christmas gift that will incorporate smart music in the development of your babies and toddlers.


The series consists of carefully selected classical music for your little one's Play Time, Activity Time, Story Time, and Bed Time. While it is recommended that you expose your child to a wide variety of music, classical music is believed by some researches to stimulate the brain in a way to cause "The Mozart Effect", which promotes long-term improvements in spatial reasoning skills. Inspired by this theory, The Little Music Lovers collection selects musical pieces based on their melodic content and their potential impact on enhancing early childhood development.

Mozart: Smart Music for Play Time features concertos and serenades by Mozart, who is known for his playful and whimsical melodies. Bach: Smart Music for Activity Time provides a selection of Bach's most recognizable pieces, which will create a fun and exciting atmosphere for you and your child to spend time together. Beethoven: Smart Music for Story Time makes your stories more memorable with the composer's passionate and vibrant melodies, such as "Moonlight Sonata", "Fur Elise", and "The Last Rose of Summer". Lullabies: Smart Music for Bed Time helps your child get a better sleep with relaxing and soothing music. Which parent wouldn't love that?

Thanks to BeyondPR, I was sent a Little Music Lovers Sampler CD, which includes two tracks from each of the four CDs in the series. It gives us a sense of what to expect in the whole series and adds a delightful note to my baby's daily activities. Mozart is my personal favorite, but my child seems to be more attracted by the Beethoven pieces. He also loves the lullabies and even attempted to hum along. I believe in the power of music and I highly recommend this series to parents who want to give their babies and toddlers a head start on developing essential skills.

Little Music Lovers CD's are available at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Best Buy, Amazon, iTunes and LittleMusicLovers.com. You may have the option to buy each CD or a single track.

New Look Giveaway #14: Nimli

~~The giveaway is now CLOSED~~
I've known Nimli for a while. It's a great place to shop for natural, organic, and sustainable lifestyle products that are both eco-friendly and fashionable. They carry a wide range of name brand green items including clothing, home decor, beauty products, and fashion accessories. In addition to being an online marketplace, Nimli also provides a comprehensive green gift guide, suggests cool fashion ideas, and keeps you in the know about what's trendy.


Nimli has generously provided me with their bestselling Azuri Cashmere Pashmina Shawl in pink for review. The shawl arrived just in time for the change of seasons. With a mixture of pashmina and silk, the fabric neatly combines smoothness, softness, and comfortableness. As a timeless fashion accessory, the shawl not only keeps me warm, but also complements my outfit for various occasions. I love it as a fabulous and functional addition to my fall wardrobe!

Azuri Cashmere Pashmina Shawl regularly retails for $150, but it's currently on sale for only $25 and you may choose from 110 colors.

In addition to their high quality shawls and wraps, I adore Nimli's huge collection of fashion-forward dresses, handbags and jewelry, many of which are sold at a significantly lower price at Nimli than in the manufacturer's online store. If you're searching for a one-stop shop for eco-friendly beauty and fashion products, look no further! You may also want to follow Nimli Talk blog for more green tips and product recommendations.

You may find a wide variety of high quality accessories, including uniquely designed vintage style jewelry, women's fabric belts and fabric wallets.

I love the color combination, the floral print, and the feel of the silk fabric. It has the right thickness for everything from jeans or a tiered skirt. It's durable and fully adjustable, providing a flexible fit for various sizes. I also love that the gold thread actually shines from a distance!

There are over 20 different prints of fabric belts to choose from in the store and for most of the prints, there are matching silk fabric wallets or clutches to simply your shopping experience.

My favorite section of the store has to be JEWELRY. Check out these gorgeous handcrafted works of art. Don't you love these magical creations with beads, rhinestones and crystals? I certainly do. Plus, quite a few of them are on sale right now!

Outfit Additions also prides itself on exceptional customer service. They have a 30-day easy return policy with no questions asked and no restocking fees.

New Look Giveaway #12: Unilever Goodie Box


~~The giveaway is now CLOSED~~
Many of you must have seen this "Beauty Tip of the Day" widget on my site and a number of other blogs. It delivers useful daily tips regarding skin care, hair care, makeup, and other interesting topics. It also recommends relevant Unilever beauty products to help us achieve a younger and healthier look.

Here are a few of my favorite tips that I learned from the widget:
  • Simplify your beauty routine and space - stick to five beauty essentials: tinted moisturizer, a multi-purpose makeup stick for eyes, cheeks and lips, concealer, one tube of mascara and one of Q-tips® cotton swabs four new beautifully designed Vanity Packs.
  • Hide and heal skin imperfections-use a Q-tips® cotton swab. Moisten one end of your Q-tips® cotton swab with an alcohol-free astringent and lightly dab on to the blemish. Use the other end of your Q-tips® cotton swab as a makeup applicator to apply an oil-free concealer to keep the blemish under wraps!
  • Quick and Easy Steps to Voluminous Hair-1) Start in the shower with Dove Volume Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner. Its unique serum helps to protect fine, limp hair from daily wear and tear without weighing it down. 2) Once hair is dry, try switching the side you part your hair – it is an easy way to add volume and make hair look fuller. 3) To achieve maximum volume, use a fine-toothed comb to backcomb sections of hair at the crown.
A new tip is posted each day on the widget. Be sure to check it out when you visit me every day!

The Giveaway

Last month, Unilever sent me a box of assorted beauty products including full-size Dove shampoo and conditioner, Pond's wet cleansing towelettes, Q-tips cotton swabs, and Dove deodorant. Unilever has also generously offered to give one of my lucky readers a Unilever Beauty Goodie Box. The box is filled with select Vaseline, Pond's, Dove and Q-tips products similar to the ones I received.

Halloween Giveaway: SproutBaby Thinkbaby Feeding Set

~~The giveaway is now CLOSED~~
In my earlier review of SproutFoods, I introduced to you SproutBaby, an online store that specializes in high quality organic and eco-friendly baby products ranging from organic food to organic skin care. It offers great everyday solutions for eco-conscious parents.

One of my favorite SproutBaby products is the Thinkbaby Stainless Steel Baby Feeding Set, including a bento box, a soup bowl, a baby bowl, a cup, a spoon and a fork. All utensils in the set are 100% sustainable and certified organic. They are BPA, Phthalate, PVC, and Polycarbonate-free, safe for your baby and our planet! This all-in-one set contains everything that meets your basic baby feeding needs.

Here are more details provided on the website.

The Bento Box
The perfect on-the-go travel container. The Bento Box features an air-tight lid. The clasp on lid allows you to safely keep liquids or non-solid foods without fear of leakage. It's a highly sustainable product. Interior made from stainless steel with a polypropylene exterior. It's dishwasher safe (top rack) and free of Bisphenol-A, PVC, Lead, Phthalates or Melamine.
Length: 14cm, Height: 3.5cm, Width: 10cm, Holds 250ml / 9oz

The Soup Bowl
The elegant design is easy to hold and deep enough for cerals and soups. After the feeding, simply store the bowl in the refrigerator. It's also dishwasher safe (top rack) and free of Bisphenol-A, PVC, Lead, Phthalates or Melamine. The bowl has a stainless steel interior and polypropylene exterior.
Diameter: 10.5cm, Depth: 4.5cm, Holds: 300ml / 10oz

The Baby Bowl
The low-profile baby bowl is perfect for beginning toddlers. The baby bowl also comes with a thinkbaby orange lid, so it's easy to locate. The baby bowl and soup bowl are both wrapped in polypropylene to help insulate contents with stainless steel interiors. Free of Bisphenol-A, PVC, Lead, Phthalates or Melamine, it's dishwasher safe (top rack) too.
Diameter: 12cm, Depth: 3.5cm, Holds: 300ml / 10oz

The Cup
The feeding set is designed to span from the age that children begin eating baby food to solids. Once your child has grown out of drinking from sippy cups, they are ready for this cup! The cup is wrapped in polypropylene to help insulate the contents and the inside is made from stainless steel. The cup is free of Bisphenol-A, PVC, Lead, Phthalates or Melamine. It's also dishwasher safe (top rack).
Diameter: 7.5cm, Depth 7cm, Holds: 200ml / 7oz

The Spoon and Fork
The spoon and fork are free of Bisphenol-A, PVC, Phthalates or Melamine. The polypropylene handles are wrapped in thermoplastic rubber to make them easy to grip.
