Funky Green Machine $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway!

UNCOMMON COOL
Funky Green Machine
is a really fun shopping site created by Carl and Rhana Kennedy, which promotes “green” and eco-friendly products that are also “Uncommon Cool” as their slogan suggests. I was pleased to see that they carry Kleen Kanteen, which is a stainless steel, reusable bottle–a great, BPA-free alternative to plastic water bottles. The 18 ounce Kleen Kanteen retails for $16.45 on their website. WELL worth the savings on your wallet, your health and the environment. They fit right into the cup holders in my car, too, which is a plus!Now I don’t know about you, but I LOVE bags and totes. I collect bags and totes!

Funky Green Machine’s “Peeking Sal” Organic Cotton, Fair Trade Tote is adorable and I want one! It’s unique and at 18″x13″, this tote would hold a LOT of library books…or would look really cool while I’m riding this AWESOME Strida 5.0 Eco-Friendly, folding bicycle, which folds up for easy storage! It weighs only 22 lbs with a lightweight aluminum frame and is available in Silver, Black, Red, Yellow White and Neon Green.


Funky Green Machine also has a full offering of skin care products for kids, moms and dads. I have my eye on this really YUMMY looking Mojito Mama Sugar Scrub!

And really now…how COOL are these organic baby/kids’ tees?

These are just a FEW of the things (everything on their site) that I’ve added to my wish list from Funky Green Machine.

Boogie Wipes Giveaway!

My kids have had colds where they have had their noses wiped so much with dry tissue that they’re just raw! You know that feeling because if you’ve had a bad cold, it’s probably happened to you, too! It’s the worst when you actually dread wiping or blowing your nose because it just plain hurts!!

Boogie Wipes have come up with the perfect solution for this! Boogie Wipes are made with saline to “unstick” the stubborn boogies, but they are also made with Chamomile, Vitamin E and Aloe to soothe their tender noses, moisturize and protect their skin.

Boogie Wipes sent me their three scents to try. The Magic Menthol will be just perfect for when the little ones have a cold because they have have a fresh menthol scent, which would definitely help open up stuffy noses. I like that the menthol isn’t too strong, though. The Great Grape is a fun scent and my kids’ favorite, but it’s not obnoxious or too strong. And I ahve to admit that to see if they would dry out the skin or leave a strange residue, I actually used The Fresh Scent on my face. I just swept it over my skin like you would with one of those beauty cloths that are so popular right now. Usually scented products sting my skin and cause me to go all blotchy, but The Fresh Scent Boogie Wipes didn’t! While I probably won’t be using them in my daily beauty routine to cleanse my face, I would definitely keep them with me to clean any of our faces if needed. The scent that lingers is pleasant and not at all overpowering.

What’s REALLY COOL is Boogie Wipes come in 30-wipe packs for $3.99/pk and you can buy “Boogies on the Run” individually-wrapped wipes for $2.99/10 pk to carry in your purse, backpack or lunchbox.

You can even get a Boogie Wipes DIAPER CAKE, which would be the perfect gift for a baby shower, newborn gift or for anyone with a baby! The Diaper Cake includes 3-30-count packs of Boogie Wipes, 20 Individually Wrapped Boogie Wipes, 50 Diapers & 1 Plush Toy.

Boogie Wipes has partnered with Things Moms Like to give away ALL THREE Boogie Wipes scents to one lucky Things Moms Like reader.

Little Jewel Sterling Silver Mommy Pendants Giveaway

The most precious things in my life are my children and when I am not with them, I am thinking of them. Because being a mother is one of the things I am most proud of, I really love “mommy jewelry” like these Girl and Boy Pendants (BELOW) from Little Jewel, purveyor of fine mother and child jewelry. They are sterling silver, which is my personal favorite, and you can get either the boy or the girl…or both. I like that they can be layered, so they look good alone or if you have more than one, they really look cool together!

$3800 HomePlace Structures Playset Giveaway at MomDot!

I want this so bad I can taste it! Several years ago, we got a wooden playset on Freecycle that didn’t hold up for very long. It wasn’t great quality and although the kids did have some fun on it, it was quite small and not very sturdy. We gave it to someone to recycle the wood. Since we got rid of it, our backyard has been bare. I am not impressed by the quality of the sets I see at the Big Box stores and in this economy, spending the $$ to buy a really, really nice one like the one that HomePlace Structures is giving away at MomDot is just not in the cards for us.

When I saw this contest, my eyes flew open and my fingers went a-flyin’. I am so excited at just the IDEA that I could possibly win this Giveaway!

Although I am paranoid that it will decrease my odds, I wanted to let my readers know about this contest and I hope that if it isn’t ME that wins it, that it’s one of my readers. And that you’ll invite us over when you do!!!

BRIDE WARS DVD & Paper Shouts $25 GC Giveaway! DAY 2

I am moving this up to Mother’s Day Giveaway Day TWO because this is the PERFECT gift for you or a mother in your life. This movie is fabulous and moms LOVE custom stationery!!!!

My daughter and I went to the theater to see BRIDE WARS. We both loved this movie and JUST the beautiful dresses are reason enough to watch this movie, in my opinion! I found the pairing of Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson an act of genius! Anne Hathaway plays Emma, the sweet, practical, responsible, conservative teacher and Kate Hudson plays her best friend Liv, a high-powered attorney who is aggressive and goes after what she wants.

They’ve thought of their perfect wedding day since they were little girls.

When their dream weddings are double-booked, their friendship (and sanity) is tested. The best friends find themselves competing for the wedding venue, guests and the perfect wedding that they’ve dreamt of since they were children.

This tale of friendship and sabotage is a must-see. It will make you laugh and maybe even shed a little tear. See it with your best friend. Or as in my case, your daughter.

Paper Shouts and 20th Century Fox have teamed up to offer an amazing giveaway package for you! This prize package includes a BRIDE WARS DVD (release date April 28th) and a $25 Paper Shouts Gift Certificate!

Paper Shouts offers fabulous cards for all occasions on recycled paper. Make an impression with their beautiful, unique designs! They have engagement announcements, wedding invitations, birth announcements, party invitations, graduation announcements, thank you cards and anything else you can think to send a card or a note for.

Paper Shouts is also offering a 15% discount for my readers. Just enter MomLikes as your promo code at checkout for this great deal!

TO ENTER,

1. visit the Paper Shouts website and come back and tell us which card from the Bridal Shouts section is your favorite. In the same post, tell us which character’s style you relate to more –Emma’s traditional, romantic style or Liv’s couture “on the best” approach?

2. You get an extra entry if you “Follow Me” on Twitter and post a tweet about the contest. Link me to the tweet in a comment. You can Tweet this contest for an entry ONCE A DAY for more chances!

3. Additional entry if you join my FACEBOOK GROUP

4. Another extra entry if you Grab My Button and put it in the sidebar on your website.

5. And yet ANOTHER entry if you link to me on your blog (please post a link to this).

Be sure to create individual comments for each of the above that you’ve done.

In addition to winning the BRIDE WARS DVD (release date April 28th) and a $25 Paper Shouts Gift Certificate, the winner will be entered in the Grand Prize drawing.

Grand Prize Drawing prizes include:

  • Grand Prize: 6 nights at the CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort and airfare for 2 on AirTran airlines.
  • 1st prize: Sunglasses Worn by Kate Hudson in BRIDE WARS movie and $100 Paper Shouts Gift Certificate.
