A Precautionary Giveaway

Posted by mommywiz on September 28, 2009

You’ve been to the mall and seen those moms who lather up their kids with anti-bacterial gel as soon as they’re done on the play equipment, yes?  They wipe down the shopping carts and everywhere their kid will touch.  They freak out when someone sneezes and they do their best to hoard the elevator, all the while holding their breath.

I used to laugh at those parents, but now that flu season is around the corner, I am slowly becoming one of them.
We still go to the mall and to the park.  I still “allow” my kids the freedom of using their sense of “touch” BUT I make them wash their hands as SOON as they’re done and they’re not allowed to touch their face or mine until their hands have been cleansed of germs.  I’m trying really hard not to be neurotic!

I am not afraid of the common cold.  In my opinion, the standard viruses that kids pick up at school serve to makes them stronger.  I want my kids to have strong immune systems.  But I don’t want them to be horribly miserable for a week or more!  Because I’ve had the flu.  I had the flu so bad in college in fact that I was out of commission for several days.  I should have been hospitalized!  After days of complete misery, I ended up with pneumonia and I was so sick I wanted to die.  I cannot imagine having to care for a child in that condition!!  I will not have it.

So, I’m using my common sense and taking the basic precautions!  And so should you.
In order to help you, my readers, stay on top of the flu this season, I am doing a giveaway!

Avon has added a new line of anti-bacterials gels to their Naturals line.  They now have SCENTED anti-bacterial gels.  They come in Vanilla, Cucumber Melon, and Peach!

That is my giveaway to you.

A set of all three, just for you!

Avon antibacterial gels

Did Someone Say FREE, DARK Chocolate?!

Posted by mommywiz on August 10, 2009

Enter my Reese’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Giveaway!! on this post.

Do you know why I love blogging? Because once in a while, I get to try out really cool stuff and then tell you all about it.

For instance, did you know that The Hershey Company is now producing Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups?

Now, I am not a big fan of peanut butter. Yep, my secret’s out. Peanut butter is gooey and sticks to the roof of my mouth… I don’t eat it out of the jar like so many people I know do. Yet, I have never turned down a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup; never! There is something about that combination that makes a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup irresistible, am I right?!

So, now imagine, for a moment, that same amazing taste only with dark chocolate?!

I received Reese’s Miniatures Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and several packets of the large cups in the mail last week. I was on cloud nine all day!!
Reese Dark med

I could have hogged them all to myself; hiding them in the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator – trust me, no one ever looks there! But, instead, I shared them with family and friends to see what they thought of them. This was the conclusion: If you LOVE dark chocolate the way I do, then you will absolutely LOVE this new line!! But if you do not like dark chocolate (which doesn’t make any sense to me), then it may not be for you.

Dark chocolate comes in so many different concentrations. The Reese’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup is the perfect concentration. It is not bitter at all, but it’s not the overly sweet, sweet taste of the milk chocolate cup. Once you eat one, you get the great peanut butter flavor along with the aftertaste of the dark chocolate, and it stays with you, until you eat the next cup. It really is wonderful! C’mon, who eats only one cup?!

Just to show you how wonderful this product is, the Hershey Company is going to send FIVE lucky winners FREE Reese’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups! That’s right, FREE. And if you think chocolate cannot be mailed, think again. They pack them using these really cool, reusable, freezer packs that keep the chocolate nice and cool until they can finally melt in your mouth!! And it’s all yours to keep!

So, if you’re a dark chocolate lover like me or if you want to surprise someone in your life with this incredible treat, you definitely want to enter this giveaway!

Here’s how it works!

You may enter as many times as you want; that’s right, enter away!

Here’s what you need to enter:

Leave a comment about why you should be the winner and if you will hide your prize in the vegetable drawer of the fridge or share it with others. Leave a valid e-mail address so I can contact you if you’re the winner, and be ready to give me a snail mail address. The chocolate will be mailed to you directly from The Hershey Company.

US residents in the continental US only, please.

You must be over 18 to participate.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

I will close this giveaway on Friday, 08/14/09 at 11pm EST. The winner will be chosen by random selection and will have three business days to respond. By entering this contest, you, the contestant/winner, affirm that you are over 18 and eligible for this giveaway according to your local regulations. Furthermore, you will not hold MommyWizdom.com and its administrators responsible for anything that goes on between you and the The Hershey Company due to this giveaway or otherwise.

Thanks for entering this giveaway! Yum, I’m eating a cup right now; munch, munch!!

Baby Essentials

Posted by mommywiz on January 28, 2009

It’s time again for the quarterly, Bloggy Giveaways.  I am running two giveaways, one on each blog.  This giveaway maybe be small, but it’s a bare essential.  It can be scary to cut a baby’s nails, in particular a newborn.  This nail care set is the best one I’ve found yet.  You can use the scissors which have a safety lip to cut long nails and then switch to the tiny emery board to finish off the job.  It’s really perfect!!  Then, when baby gets older, you can switch to the nail cutter.

I have also included a set of rattle slippers, size 12 months.  My MIL brought them directly from Singapore.  I never got around to putting them on my son and now they’re too small.baby_stuff_ga_0109

So, I guess you wanna know how to win?!

The rules for my giveaways are simple.

To enter my giveaway, simply subscribe to my main blog HERE on the sidebar AND leave a comment on THIS BLOG with the answer to these two questions and let me know you subscribed.

Do you find blogger reviews helpful?!  Why or why not?

One entry per person only.   Please provide a valid e-mail address so I can contact you if you’re the winner.

You don’t have to be a blogger to enter.  I will only ship within the continental US though.

I will close the drawings on Sunday, February 1, 2009 at 10pm EST.

The winners will be chosen by random number generator and will be notified via e-mail. They will have three business days to respond.  If they do not respond within the alloted time, I will
choose another winner.  The winners will be notified/posted as soon as possible.

I must have a way to contact you if you are the winner.

GOOD LUCK!
