ENDED-Get Organized With CSN Stores $35 Giveaway

As I've mentioned before, I have been making an effort to live a more Eco friendly lifestyle and improve my overall quality of life. The three big things that I really need to work on are simplifying, organizing and prioritizing. My family and I live in an extremely small house that has no closets. While creating a peaceful, functional and uncluttered environment in a house this tiny may be difficult, it can be done with a bit of determination, the right furniture and a little creativity. 
The most important change for me was to replace oversized furniture, outdated furniture with smaller, streamlined pieces. Remove bulky entertainment centers and replace them with a sleek unit like the one pictured below. Wall mounts are another option but with dvd players and game systems, they just aren't as functional for me as  LCD TV stands.  

When you replace your large furniture with smaller pieces, you not only free up valuable space but you'll have less dusting and cleaning work and the added bonus of having a more attractive living area. 
Organizing  your home will not only give you more room, it also saves you time and energy. When I have everything in its place, I don't waste time searching for phone chargers, books or socks. 

There are so many items from CSN that I have on my wish list. To create the home and Eco friendly lifestyle I'm dreaming of, I'd love a Compost Wizard Jr, a great organizer for my makeshift office (like the one pictured above)and - most of all - a fantastic loft bed with dresser and desk, just like the one on the left, for my daughter's room.  

 CSN is giving one winner $35 to spend in any of their stores! To enter, follow this blog publicly using Google Friend Connect(see left sidebar) and fill out the form below. You must fill out the form to be eligible to win this giveaway.

The giveaway is open to U.S. residents age 18 and up. Giveaway ends on March 29 at 11:59 pm CST.


ENDED-Chicken Soup For the Soul:New Moms Giveaway and Review -3 Winners ends 3/30

"Becoming a new mom is the most amazing event. This book celebrates the physical, emotional, and spiritual experience of having a child and creating a family. New and expectant moms will delight in these heartwarming, insightful, and humorous stories about raising babies and toddlers. This book is full of stories by other moms sharing the wonders of early motherhood, from waiting for the baby, whether through pregnancy, adoption, or surrogacy, to those early weeks and first few years, and everything in between!"

First let me say that Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms is not just for new moms - it's great for anyone who is now or wants to one day be a mother. I also know for a fact that grandmothers will love it - I shared a few stories with my mom (who is a grandmother) and she enjoyed them so much that she is now reading the entire book. 

This collection of 101 inspirational stories is about the joys and wonders of the miracle that is motherhood.  It covers everything from infertility to pregnancy, adoption to surrogacy, breastfeeding to sleep deprivation and many other topics. It is great for busy moms because the stories are short so you can take a few minutes to read one or two then come back later and read a few more. I could identify with most of the stories and they brought back some great memories from pregnancy, nursing, baby's first haircut, unwanted advice and many other experiences. I especially loved the story about the 'Sloppy Mommy'- it was one that I really identified with. The mom, in her pre-baby days, loved dressing the in most stylish fashions on a daily basis. After realizing that she was living in a tshirt and jeans, she decided that she wanted to stop looking like a slob. She went to Target and got a few new clothes. It was her birthday so they went out to eat and of course her toddler smeared cheese all over the new sweater. The mom was upset and she resigned herself to a life of stained tees and sweats. She realized that the part of her life where she was a cute, trendy young woman was gone and she felt saddened. But right then, her daughter called out mommy - when the mom looked over, the little girl said "hey mommy", while grinning the most gorgeous smile. Instead of remembering the night her daughter ruined her new clothes, she remembered the night that her child was happy just to be sitting next to mommy. Awwwwe. I can totally relate!
This would be a wonderful book if you know anyone who is adopting or pregnant with their first child or even their fifteenth child! It is really great for new moms since it helps you to realize that you aren't the only one struggling with some of the worries, insescurities and difficulties that come with being a mother - like post partum depression for example. I truly believe though that any new mom will identify with and appreciate the stories and wisdom in Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms. 
Win It: Three lucky winners will each receive their own copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms. Entering is simple - just follow this blog publicly and fill out the entry form below. 

Giveaway ends March 30 at 11:59 pm CST.   Open to residents of US and Canada, age 18 and up. Winners will be selected via and contacted via email. 
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book to facilitate my review. It did not influence my opinion in any way. 


ENDED-Coobie Bra Giveaway and Review ends 3/29

What is a Coobie Bra? "It's simply the most amazing bra you'll every buy. Ultra comfortable, supportive and inexpensive - it's the perfect combination. The Coobie Bra provides shape and support and can be worn in place of a camisole or tank top."

The Coobie Bra is my new favorite find. It is the most comfortable bra that I've owned and I actually just ordered three more so I can have one to wear while the others are being washed. Besides being comfortable, it is also affordable, it provides support and it's super cute. I love that it comes in a wide variety of colors. It is one size fits  most and is guaranteed to fit 32A to 36D /DD. They also offer a new Plus Size Coobie for those with larger bra size. 
The Coobie comes in three different styles: Coobie Scoopneck, Coobie V-neck with Lace and the Coobie Bandeau. All three have easy to remove pads. Both the Scoopneck and Vneck come with an extra set of clear straps. Prices start at $18 and right now you can get $20 off your purchase of three bras when you use code irish! This deal could end at anytime though so take advantage of the offer while you can - it's like getting one bra for free! 

With it's seamless, wireless and hookless construction, the Coobie Bra gives you a smooth, lifted silhouette.  While it may look similar to a sports bra it is way better in my opinion. The sports bras I've owned flattened my my chest and they were so confining that they created a uni-boob. You will NOT have that problem with the Coobie. It also eliminates the dreaded "back bulge" or back fat that you get from most bras. You are in NO danger of having a roll or bulge over the sides, back or cups with the Coobie bra. 
 I was skeptical about the claim that the Coobie  could fit such a wide range of bra sizes and when I saw the bra, I thought that it probably would not fit me but it was a perfect fit. I did a little investigating by reading other Coobie reviews and women in a range of sizes from 34a to 36D all  said that the Coobie fit them perfectly. If you are pregnant or you're dieting, the Coobie is a great bra because it doesn't have to be replaced if you go up or down a size. I wish that I'd had one while I was nursing also! 
Since the pads are removable, I tried wearing my bra both ways and decided to leave the pads out. I've worn my bra under t shirts, cardigan, a button up and it looked great under everything. I actually have a problem with some shirts coming unbuttoned occasionally and I love that if that happens when I have on a Coobie, it won't be as embarrassing as it usually is because the Coobie looks like a cami when it's peeking out of the top of shirts or sweaters.  I was really impressed with the super fast shipping too- I received my bra only two days after I sent in my information! 

The Coobie Store is always having promotions on their Facebook page and often they have an opportunity for you to win a free bra. Right now, they have a contest where they are giving away a bra every single day in March. There are also a couple of other contests going on at their Facebook page. If you don't win, they frequently have discount codes on their Facebook page, like the one now that basically gives you a free bra when you buy 2. 
Buy It: Get yours today at The Coobie Store. Right now, their St. Patrick's Day deal is to buy 3 bras and get $20 off your purchase when you use code irish. The offer can end at any time.

Win It:
