LD Products Hawaiian Vacation Sweepstakes and $100 Remanufactured Ink Giveaway Event [Closed]

86f05 LD Products LD Products Hawaiian Vacation Sweepstakes and $100 Remanufactured Ink Giveaway Event [Closed] LD Products was founded in 1999. Since that time, they have grown to become one of the largest online retailers of printer supplies in the US. Since its inception, LD Products have made customer satisfaction their number one goal; their courteous customer service representatives are knowledgeable about their products and always ready to assist. They have been awarded Bizrate’s Platinum Circle of Excellence for Customer Service for the past six years, and are also a Yahoo 5 Star certified merchant.

LD Products’ purchasing department works hard to ensure that they carry the latest printing supply products–all stocked in their 110,000 square-foot warehouse located in Long Beach, California. They rigorously screen their manufacturers to make sure that their products maintain the highest levels of quality and durability.

We teamed up with The Stuff of Success to help give away $100 worth of LD Products remanufactured printer ink. If you’re running low on printer ink, you will definitely want to enter this giveaway!

But first, The Stuff of Success received ink from LD Products to try out for herself. Here is what she had to say about her experience with the ink:

I was thrilled to be contacted by LD Products to write a review for them. Who doesn’t have an interest in printer ink nowadays? I have a laser printer and an inkjet printer–for this experiment I worked with the laser printer, which is a Brother HL-2270DW.

So let’s start with a price comparison. Since [my printer] is laser it needs a drum cartridge. The drum cartridge at a “leading retailer” is $109.99 with a toner cartridge cost of $68.49 for a total of $178.48. But by purchasing (although I did receive it for free in exchange for this honest review) through LD Products it would have cost a total of $38.99 for the drum and $25.99 for the toner, for a total of $64.98. That is quite a savings, and I can think of many things I could be using those extra funds for–a 64% savings!

Their remanufactured ink produced results just as clear, precise, and defined as the brand name cartridge I had been using. I did not have to compromise anything in quality, and although I have not been using it long enough to determine, I cannot imagine I would suffer at all in quantity, either.

Although I did not receive ink for my Epson Inkjets I do want to run a comparison for the inkjet ink for you to see it in print also. The Epson Workforce 545 has multiple cartridges in it. To replace all of them through a “leading retailer” the total cost for three black cartridges and two of each color high yield (3 colors) would be $161.91, but through LD Products it would cost just $56.97–a 65% savings!

So if you are spending your hard-earned cash on ink, fret no more. You can save a considerable amount with LD Products.

Summer Budget Beauty: Luxe vs. Less

May 16, 2013

e8df9 Luxe Less FINAL Summer Budget Beauty: Luxe vs. Less

Now more than ever, it really pays to save. But there’s also something to be said for making a smart splurge or two—especially when you find a beauty product that you absolutely love.

These six summer buys all get the MARS seal of approval, despite their drastically different price tags. It’s up to you to decide which warrant spending some extra cash and which don’t require the extra dough. (We, for instance, love Not Your Mother’s Beach Spray, which is only $6 and one of the best summer-hair spritzers around. IOHO, of course).

 

BEACH SPRAYS

Phyto Plage Protective Beach Hair Spray, $22

Tousled, sexy waves are a summer hairstyle standard. If you haven’t actually spent the day by the sea, a wave spray is key for creating this disheveled-but-sexy style. Phyto’s formula creates a beautiful, just-back-from-the-beach look, with plenty of texture and volume. It’s also a great hair protectant that contains UV filters to shield your strands from salt water, chlorine, and sun damage.

VS.

Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, $6

For six bucks, you can’t beat this beach spray, which smells absolutely amazing—close your eyes while you spritz it on and it’s almost impossible not to feel like you’re at the shore. Infused with natural Dead Sea salt and sea kelp, it helps form a sexy, windswept style and will hold waves for hours. And you really only need a few spritzes, so one $6 bottle can last you all summer long.

 

SELF-TANNERS

Clarins ‘Instant Smooth’ Self-Tanning, $35

Streak-free color, a natural looking glow, and skin smoothing moisturize is what you’ll get from Clarins’ jar of self-tanning mousse. A light hue will develop instantly (in about an hour), and with daily use you can build on your color to achieve the intensity of tan you’re looking for.

VS.

L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion, $10

You’ll also get an instant bronze glow from L’Oréal’s self-tanning lotion (within an hour, as well). Continue to build on the color, and eventually you’ll be two shades darker than your natural skin tone (if, of course, you want to take it that far). The brand’s new formula is also filled with good-for-the-skin ingredients, such as wrinkle-reducing alpha hydroxy acids and soothing vitamin E.

 

SUMMER RED LIPSTICKS

Laura Mercier Lip Colour Creme in Italian Summer, $24

Just because the temps are warming doesn’t mean you have to shy away from a bold colored lip. Laura Mercier’s Colour Creme is wonderfully lightweight, which is why it’s a great pick for summer. It’s also packed with moisturizing and anti-aging elements to keep lips soft, supple, and summertime sexy.

VS.

NYX Matte Lipstick in Pure Red, $6

This lipstick truly lasts all day, which is perfect if you’re planning to rock a glam beach beauty look. We do suggest adding a coat a lip balm before you apply, as this shade’s amazing staying power can cause a dryness. And don’t be afraid of red! A pop of the shade adds sexy oomph to any style, regardless of the season.

What are the Best Foods to Eat During Pregnancy

If you’re having your very first child then you’re surely full of mixed emotions, from excitement to worry. The first baby is always the scariest for new parents because you really feel like you are all grown up now. You always see your parents as being responsible and knowing what’s best, but now it’s your turn.

If this prospect seems scary and daunting to you then don’t worry – your parents have gone through it too so they will definitely offer you plenty of advice. Browsing through magazines like parent child can also be advantageous. Reading through online articles and blogs will also benefit you, but don’t get too carried away and read hundreds because this might confuse you on what you should or shouldn’t do. Be sure to relax and take plenty of breaks, maybe play a few online games over at cheekybingo or give your parents a call through skype so you can talk to them about any issues. But remember, it is an exciting time so above all, enjoy it.

We have put together a list of great foods you should try to eat during pregnancy. Remember that whatever you eat is also feeding your baby.

Avocados: These fruits are packed with folic acid which is vital for forming your baby’s brain and nervous system. It is also rich in potassium, vitamin C and vitamin B6. This essential vitamin not only helps your baby’s tissues and brain to develop, but it is also great for easing morning sickness.

Broccoli: This veg is full of vitamins A and C, as well as calcium which helps build strong bones for you and your baby.

Yoghurt: Yoghurt is full of calcium and folic acid which is great for your baby’s bones. In addition, it helps to ease sickness and it helps to prevent yeast infections.

Mangoes: If you’re not a great fan of vegetables then fruits like mango are great for getting your vitamin A and C.

American Girl Bitty Twins Giveaway Event [Closed]

0c3ad American Girl Bitty Twins Giveaway Event American Girl Bitty Twins Giveaway Event [Closed] I am a huge fan of American Girl. When I was about eight years old, my grandmother gave me an American Girl doll and I was instantly in adoration.

I had Felicity Merriman, a doll with a story from the American Girl Historical Character line. Felicity was a spunky colonial girl growing up in Williamsburg, Virginia in 1774 while America was on the brink of the Revolutionary War. At this time, American Girl wasn’t nearly the empire it is today. They had put out the Historical Character line and at first I just had the doll, but in no time at all, I had also acquired books, accessories, and even a play with actual scripts that you could act out with your friends.

Since my childhood, American Girl has expanded so much, and frankly, my inner child is a little jealous. American Girl has incredible lines of dolls, clothing (for both dolls and little girls), doll furniture, accessories, books, and even an American Girl magazine.

Among the products they have now (and didn’t have when I was a kid), are Bitty Twins, and thanks to Mom to Bed by 8 and Iowa Mom, we are helping give away Bitty Twins dolls and book set.

The on-the-go Bitty Twins offer so many ways to mix and match! Choose skin tone, hair color, and gender to create your favorite pair. Bitty Twins come with full outfits, hair for styling, and a special book. You can also add to the fun with accessories specially made for Bitty Twins and Dress Like Your Doll clothing. Bitty Twins 15-inch dolls are for ages 3 and up.

One lucky winner will win an American Girl Bitty Twins and Book Set. The winner will be able to select boy/girl, two girls, or two boy dolls, as well as choose their preferred skin tone and hair color.

This giveaway will end on May 13th at 11:59pm, open to US and Canada, ages 18+. To enter use the Rafflecopter form below.

Woolzies Natural Dryer Balls Giveaway Event [Closed]

aa039 Woolzies dryer balls Woolzies Natural Dryer Balls Giveaway Event [Closed] We all want to know how we can take care of our homes and our families in the most natural way possible. When I find a product or company that I can see is making real strides in helping everyday people like you and me utilize more natural products that help lower the damage being done to the environment while making us healthier people overall, I really try to help get the word out about them. Case in point: you have seen our 3-month subscription to Conscious Box giveaway, right? Well now there is a natural product that will help you lower the amount of chemicals you use to do your laundry.

Woolzies are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften your laundry naturally without any of the chemicals of conventional fabric softeners.

Unlike plastic dryer balls, Woolzies are PVC-free and won’t fall apart or melt on you. Woolzies save time and energy by cutting down on drying time by an average of 25% per load and also help reduce static and wrinkles.

Use Woolzies to snuggle up with naturally downy soft laundry that is completely free of harmful chemicals. Woolzies are also hypoallergenic and totally safe for people with wool sensitivities as they will not shed onto your laundry.

Unlike even natural dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, Woolzies last for 1,000 loads, making them extremely eco-friendly. So why risk your health and waste your money with regular fabric softeners when you can save time, energy, and money with all natural pure Woolzies!

For even more information, read The Stuff of Success’ Woolzies Dryer Balls Review.

Price Reduction on Your Perfect Shoes

As you may already have seen, this year I became an independent shoe stylist for Shoes of Prey,
an online shoe company that enables you to create your perfect shoes
online (yes, they’re available worldwide) using their amazing 3D shoe
designer. 

Recently they’ve been playing with their pricing
model to try and make their beautiful shoes more affordable to more
women (I already think they’re amazing value anyway!). Prices used to
be set by heel height. They’re now changing this to 3 different base
prices (for flats, heels and shoe boots) plus a charge for extras, such
as special materials and decorations.

The good news is that, for the time being, there is only
a base price (no extra charges). They don’t know yet, when this will
change, but it will have to change soon — these prices are amazingly
low for such high quality custom designed, handmade shoes! See for yourself.
