Meridane Design: "What U Love" Pendant with Stone & Chain Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Shellie #125!

Meridane Design is a family owned business that was created when Sally Short, mother of Merida and Dane (Meridane), superimposed each letter of the phrase ‘LOVE IS ALL U NEED' on top of one another and then added a peace sign to complete the design.

Sally then had the design cast in sterling silver as a ‘Love and Peace' pendant. But when the Short family received the pendant they noticed a ‘K' popping out.....(see full story).

'What U Love' Pendants - What Does Yours Say Today?


All Symbols, with the exception of the Gold, are cast in STERLING SILVER. The Pendant measures 1-3/8” X 5/8”

Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet - so beautiful and unique.

No more throwing specialty cocktail spices away after one use.

Sahale Snacks: Seasoned Nuts & Apron Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Felicia #47!

Sahale Snacks sent over some really delicious seasoned nuts for me to try. They were all very tasty and a great healthy go to snack.

A little more about them:

We use whole ingredients in their natural form -- such as cashews, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, macadamia nuts, and peanuts -- and combine them with naturally dried and preservative-free (unsulphured) fruits, then add fabulous ingredients like organic orange blossom honey, lemongrass, balsamic vinegar, Moroccan harissa, or pure ground Madagascar vanilla beans.


My favorite variety was their Barbeque Almonds with Mild Chipotle + Ranch. These had great bbq flavor with a nice ranch kick.

Enjoy the harmony of classic tastes with an all-natural twist. Our Barbeque Almonds are seasoned with a proprietary “Dry Rub” spice blend and accented with tangy buttermilk ranch. Then, they’re slow roasted to a smoky, spicy-sweet perfection.

The Southwest Cashews with Chili + Cheddar was a unique combination. They had a bit of heat to them and a light cheesy taste.

Enjoy the harmony of classic Southwestern tastes with an all-natural twist. Whole cashews are topped with a dusting of grated Cheddar-Jack cheese and blended with Poblano and Guajillo peppers, then slow roasted, for a spicy, crunchy snack.

My husband's favorite flavor was their Tuscan Almonds with Parmesan + Herbs. He really loved the parmesan and herb combination.

Enjoy the harmony of classic Italian tastes with an all-natural twist. Grated Parmesan cheese and sun dried tomato are partnered with a blend of Tuscan herbs, then oven roasted with whole almonds to create a bold, savory snack.

Click here to see all of their yummy products.

One lucky reader will win a four flavor variety of nuts - Glazed Cashews with Pomegranate and Vanilla, Glazed Almonds with Honey and Sea Salt, Valdosta Nut Blend and Sing Buri Nut Blend - and a Sahale Snacks apron!

Baby Flair Boutique - $35 Gift Certificate Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Julie #76!

Baby Flair Boutique has to be one of my all time favorite Etsy shops now. Their hair accessories are so unique, gorgeous and meticulously handmade. I was so thrilled to receive some of their beautiful hair flowers for this review.


The Charcoal Gray Madison Blossom on a mini aligator clip is simply spectacular! I also received this style of flower in cream and it's breathtaking. See the color chart below for your choices.

The Madison blossom is wonderfully handcrafted and looks so pretty in the hair. The blossom measures 1.5 inches across and can be made with or without leaves. If you would prefer to have this blossom on a stretchy or hard headband, just let the designer know. A custom order can be made just for you!

Another clip I just love is the Black and White Polka Dot ZOE Blossom. The shape and design is so unique and is modeled after the Japanese craft of "Kanzashi". The way the petals are folded and the fun fabric really makes this flower stand out.

This flower measures 2.25 inches across and comes secured to a partially lined alligator clip. If you would like this on a stretchy or hard headband, just let them know. Need another color? No problem.

I'm sure you will agree - pretty stuff... And that's not all. They have many different flower designs that are just as nice!

One lucky reader will win a $35 Gift Certificate!

MANDATORY ENTRY: Visit Baby Flair Boutique and tell me how you would spend your $35.

PetFlow: Food for Life!


What is PetFlow?

PetFlow was created for one very simple reason, to ensure that you never run out of food for your pet.

If you are like most Americans, you find out that you're out of pet food when you are already completely out, and end up having to run to the store last minute, or simply give your pet whatever you have at your disposal.

Unfortunately, alternating your pet's diet is unhealthy for your pets, so it is very important to have a stock of your pet's regular food on-hand. This is where PetFlow comes in! By using PetFlow, you will be able to preselect your pet's food, and have it delivered exactly when you need it! There will be no heavy bags for you to carry, and you'll never run out, because we will deliver the food to your home, on time, every time! All you have to do today is select the food that you'd like to have delivered, select the interval (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly) and a fresh batch of food will be delivered to your home!

You will be able to use our simple and intuitive interface should you need to make changes to your schedule or food. Most importantly, because of the power of group buying, you can be sure that you will always be getting the lowest price possible! You can can cancel the service any time, there are no hidden fees and no surprises!



Step 1:

Tell us where we need to ship your pet's food!

Step 2:
