I am blog obsessed! March Wins

Continuing my blog obsessed journey, here are my March wins. Many thanks to the blog site owners and their sponsors. Just my little tiny blog site requires a lot of work, so I can only imagine how much work is involved in a fully functioning review and giveaway site. The work put into each site-- the reviews, pictures, graphics, communication with sponsors is very much appreciated by me and all the equally obsessed readers out there!

March Wins

3/2 "The Survivors Club" by Ben Sherwood from Let's Give it Away. In my enthuism to try and win this book, I ended up winning from two different sites. But I did pass the book on to an avid reader to enjoy.

3/2 Horizon Chocolate Milk Giveaway from Save Your Money Mama. This prize included $1 off coupons and two coupons for a 1/2 gallon of Horizon Chocolate Milk. I redeemed all coupons and let me tell you Horizon Chocolate Milk is the best, before giving Horizon a try I was buying store brand but not anymore!

3/4 My Lip Stuff Lip Balms from Simply Living on a Budget. I am not a lipstick person, maybe I'll wear lip gloss occasionally. However I usually have 2 or 3 different kinds of lip balm around that I use a lot. Flavors I received were Chocolate Almond, Doublemint, Bavarian Cream, Cinnamon Frosting, Candy Hearts, and Sex on the Beach. Check out My Lip Stuff, they have over 500 flavors.

3/5 Leakey Photograph Choice from Mint Green With Envy. A lot of brilliant photos to choose from but we ended up with the Black and White Lily. Its gorgeous and hangs in our bathroom. See the pic on the left.

3/11 Carolina Pad Prize Pack from Our Ordinary Life. I received an assortment of Carolina pad items including a notebook, folder, change purse, mini file expander, etc. Carolina pad has so many fun designs for school supplies.

3/11 Seventh Generation Free and Clear Prize Pack from the Groschen Goblins. This fabulous prize pack included Auto Dish pacs, Liquid Dish soap, All Purpose Cleaner, Bathroom cleaner, 2X Ultra Free and Clear Laundry Detergent, Glass & Surface Cleaner, Paper Towels, and a Seventh Generation reusable tote bag. I have been wanting to try Seventh Generation products so I was excited for this win. The cleaners don't smell like cleaners, free and clear just as the name says!

3/13 A scarf from the Affordable Scarves website, won from a Fairy Blog Mother. I choose this one Isee pic on right) and I love it. With all the different colors in the small print, I can wear it with just about any outfit. Affordable Scarves has a number of really cute scarves and they are yes, they are affordable, hence the name.

3/13 "Corked" by Kathryn Borel from Mama's Money Savers. I just finished this book a few weeks ago, though it wasn't for me, I always enjoy trying new authors.

3/14 Ozone Socks won from Sugar Pop Ribbons. I always loved fun socks, forget the boring white ones. Just to give you a rough idea of what's in my sock drawer- my craziest pair of socks are individual toed pink socks with purple monkeys that say, "Like I care."

3/15 The Fantastic Mr Fox DVD won from Tiara's Tantrums. My sister and I wanted to see this movie when it came but never got a chance. We plan on watching it together, we always loved Ronald Dahl books growing up.

3/16 Exuviance Heel Cream won from Trying to Stay Calm. Supposed to work wonders on those hard heels! Fun blog site too, right now there's a Casio camera giveaway I'm in.

3/17 Lucky Land's End Twitter Contest Party, my first twitter try and win! I was extremely fortunate to win a beautiful cashmere wrap. First of all I have never been lucky enough to own anything Land's End, second I've never owned anything cashmere. It is an unbelievably soft and beautiful, I love it!

3/18 The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg won at Park Avenue Princess. This was a really cute book, fast read too, perfect if you need something light to read at the beach.

3/19 Gold N Hot Triple Barrel Waver from The Fabulous Won- perfect when I'm sick of my boring straight hair!

3/19 Dick's Sporting Goods $50 Gift Card from Sage and Savvy. My husband was happy about this one, most of my giveaway wins are for us females or kids. Now he can use this and get something for himself.

3/19 Baby Bunch Banquet from Is it Naptime Yet? Perfect timing for a friend's baby shower. Everyone thought the banquet was so neat and asked me where I got it at. I didn't exactly fess up to winning it but I told them the website address.

3/20 Bebe Dulce Relaxation Pillow from Feisty Frugal and Fabulous. I keep forgetting I have this, the next time I ache or I am stressed it can be heated or cooled for relief and relaxation.

3/20 Human Nature Autographed CD from Momma in Flip Flops. Cool that it was autographed!

3/20 Kroger $25 gift card from Mommy Memorandum. Kroger is right down the road from me and is my usual weekly grocery store. This gift card was really helpful considering I have been trying to lower my food budget.

3/21 Earthworks lotion and soap from Familylicious. I choose Japanese Flower for my scent, it smells wonderful!
