Holiday Green Gifts

As you are planning your Holiday Shopping list for those cute little stocking suffers here are some thoughts from my youngest daughter on her favorite products based on;  Natural, Organic, Cruelty Free, Paraben Free, EDTA Free, and Environmentally happy.  EOS products can be found at Drug Stores and ULTA.  Their lip balm is a unique package and the perfect fit for a stocking stuffer.  They company uses natural ingredients and recyclable packaging.


Lush, Products are handmade soaps that smell absolutely wonderful.  They are offering some really cute products for this Christmas.   The company seems to be growing and might end up in a mall or area near you. The soap in the store are mostly sold by the pound and then put in paper wrapping, so earthy.  I have bought soap from them several times and honestly works great for a room freshener, the fragrance is that good.(works just as well for its soap purpose)
The also sell foot scrubs that are nice and just as fragrant. For pampering, they sell bath balls that fizz in the tub and soften skin.    It is reasonably priced and well worth the visit in store or web site.   The sales people will be in conversation with you a lot and even let you try their products with soap and water. I appreciate the paper wrapping and not all the over wrapped bars of soap we buy in the bigger stores.  When you spend $100 you will earn a $10 e-card, details on their web site.


Another cute offering for tiny trinkets is from Ulta in their 5 for $5 deal.  It is a mix and match of selected travel like sizes. Their add shows; lip balm, lotion ,nail polish, makeup brushes, mirror, 3 piece nail set, 3 piece pedicure set. While supplies last, and all those little details at the store should be available.  I can not speak for all the ingredients in this mix and match promotion.  On our last trip to Ulta, my daughter spent a good amount of time reading the labels of hair spray bottles looking for a crutley free one, and the store brand, Ulta did list it was cruelty free, so read the labels and decide for yourself. 

For Cats and Dogs, Pet Smart is offering more choices in natural foods.  Click on the highlighted word and print out coupons in savings of $50.00 , of course that would be printing all the coupons.

In your holiday decorating Kmart is offering a trade in off your old Christmas lights.  When you bring them to the store and trade them in, and you trade up to Energy Star qualified light sets you receive a $4.00 coupon/credit towards the new set. I have not seen this yet this year, but Home Depot last year had a bin you could put your old light sets in for recycling.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate.
