Babushka’s Beauty Secrets *Review and Giveaway* CLOSED

Beauty products can get really expensive and some of them contain ingredients that can do more harm than good. If you like to take care of yourself and want to save money, here is a great book that I got to review and have the opportunity to give 3 of you a copy!

Babushka’s Beauty Secrets: Old World Tips For a Glamorous New You by Raya Ruder and Susan Campos has “all natural and better than Botox” tips and handmade recipes.

.

.

Book description:

(from back cover)

DON’T SPEND A FORTUNE TO LOOK FLAWLESS

Esthetician to the stars Raisa Ruder learned her time-tested beauty techniques from her Ukrainian grandmother (or babushka, as they say in the old country). Now everyone can discover the all-natural, better-than-botox secrets the Hollywood stars use to shine on the red carpet! Ruder reveals her sought-after beauty recipes that can fight wrinkles, plump lips, and eliminate crow’s feet and acne, using inexpensive, everyday grocery items like eggs, honey, vegetable oil and strawberries (and a splash of vodka for freshness!). At last, by popular demand, Raisa Ruder opens up her babushka’s secret pantry and shares her most amazing and effective beauty advice:

  • Skin-saving Soufflés – whipped up wonders that shrink pores, brighten skin, and diminish lines
  • Chocolate weight-loss wrap- a moment on the hips, tightens, tucks, and nips!
  • Hot hair- a cayenne pepper blend that leaves locks silky, soft, and full
  • PediPure- a soothing, smoothing foot scrub made with milk and mint
  • Lustrous Lashes – a simple castor oil serum that thickens and lengthens
  • Perfect Pucker- a mix of salt, green tea, and fruit that plumps up lips naturally

.

About the authors:

Raisa Ruder was a registered nurse in her native Ukraine when she decided to move to the United States fifteen years ago. For seven years she worked at the famed Anastasia salon doing eyebrows and facials until opening her own West Hollywood salon in 2005. She noticed the large amount of preservatives in American products and decided to introduce her Babushka’s old world beauty recipes in her salon. She quickly became LA’s go-to-girl. Her clients include: Madonna,Tyra Banks, Molly Simms, Ali Larter, Nicolette Sheridan and others.

Susan Campos is a broadcast and print journalist. She is a former anchor for the national weekend edition of Today. She’s reported for Dateline and hosted numerous entertainment shows on MSNBC. She currently writes trend stories on beauty for The New York Times’ “Styles” section and its T Magazine, and is a contributing editor for Radar Magazine.

Susan Campos met Raisa Ruder when she was writing a story about green beauty. She immediately loved Ruder’s beauty regimen, and a few years later they decided to do a book together.

.

This book holds some great beauty tips. Included is a list of “Must-Have Tools” like empty bottles, wash cloths, and measuring cups and spoons. There is also a list of the top ten “Must-Have Ingredients” and ten things vodka can be used for besides drinking. The book also has a great informative chapter on how to create a fab five-star spa right in your own home!  Along with the incredibly wise and money-saving tips are some fabulous recipes. You can find recipes for milk soaks and bubble baths for rest and relaxation and souffles formulated to plump up the face and use before heading out to a big event. There are also recipes for homemade remedies and beauty supplies that focus on your eyes, lips, hair, hands, feet, and the rest of your body. One of my favorite chapters focuses on waxing and shaving with tips on achieving the best wax or shave and recipes for dealing with ingrown hairs and making your own shaving cream. My other favorite chapter has “One-Ingredient Wonders!”  This chapter tells you how you can take one item and beautify yourself easily. For instance, you can blend strawberries (or blueberries or blackberries) and create a facial mask to pump up your skin much like pumping up the skin with bovine collagen. Another great chapter focuses on recycling beauty. It’s great to read this chapter and see how household leftovers, such as coffee grounds and eggshells, can be recycled and used in recipes. This book is great for anyone who wants to save money, be green and beautify themselves at the same time.

Good Earth *Review and Giveaway* CLOSED

I enjoy cooking meals at home for my family, but now and then it’s nice when I don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen preparing a meal or trying to multitask with several dishes being cooked at once.

Introducing Good Earth dry dinner kits:

When dinner means tons of pots and pans and mixing or chopping for hours, sometimes dining out seems tempting. Now with new Good Earth TM dry dinner kits, you can have restaurant taste without the restaurant wait and still have a wholesome dinner.

With appetizing entrées from Good Earth, dining in is sure to become the new dining out. Enjoy cooking a sophisticated, restaurant-quality meal in the comfort of your own home. Each variety includes vibrant and flavorful sauces along with specialty ingredients like sweet basil, white wine and dried tomatoes. Delicious dinners that allow you to keep a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing taste, Good Earth dry dinner kits are perfect for whipping up a no-fail, five-star cuisine in less than 30 minutes.

100% whole grain, no trans fat, no artificial flavors, no artificial preservatives, no MSG – just add meat and, voilà! Dinner is served.

Coming to stores this June, Good Earth dry dinner kits offer a selection of four delectable meals: Mediterranean Chicken with angel hair pasta, Spicy Citrus Glazed Shrimp with angel hair pasta, Herb Crusted Chicken with mushroom risotto and Tuscan Chicken with penne pasta.

.

Thanks to MyBlogSpark, I received a Good Earth gift pack that included a Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit, two sets of bamboo flatware, two bamboo dishes, a bamboo utility board and a 100% recyclable grocery tote.

The bamboo items included in this gift pack are of great quality. They also come in real handy for preparing and serving the dry dinner kit.

The reusable grocery bag is a very generous size and I am going to love using it when do our shopping!

The Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit was so easy to make and was delicious! It really did taste like something I could order from a restaurant. It only took about 20 minutes to make! Included in the dinner kit is 100% whole grain angel hair pasta, creamy sauce with olive oil, Mediterranean seasoning with tomatoes, and seasoned whole wheat flour. All I had to add was chicken, a little olive oil to cook the chicken in, hot water and a little milk. The directions where so easy to follow. I really like that the box also featured chef-inspired tips like substituting the chicken with pork tenderloin or stirring in fresh asparagus pieces or artichoke hearts near the end of cooking. I loved the seasoned whole wheat flour. With the chicken breaded in the flour, it smelled so wonderful as it was cooking and tasted just as wonderful! It was a great healthy meal that my family loved!

Wholesale Keychain *Review and Giveaway* CLOSED

Wholesale Keychain is an online store that offers several keychains and keyrings at remarkable prices. You can buy individual keychains or buy them in bulk. They also offer engraving on many of the styles so they make excellent gifts for loved ones.

I received the Digital Photo Keychain & Keyring with Stand in Pink to review.

This keychain is amazing! It is a great personal mobile photo album. It features a 1.5″ display screen. It supports up to 100 images of any size. The images are easy to download from your PC or MAC computer. It has self-contained firmware that is so simple to use and is very user-friendly. All you need to do is connect the keychain to your computer with the included USB cable.  It was very quick at downloading the pictures I wanted to add to the keychain. Once I had my photos downloaded to the keychain, I got to enjoy seeing my photos displayed on the keychain. You can have your photos display as a slide show, which includes some great transition effects, or you can turn the slide show off where you can move from photo to photo by using the buttons on the side of the keychain. There is also a clock feature, which the keychain automatically matches to your computer date and time when connected to the computer. To conserve the battery life, the keychain also features an auto shutdown.

I love my digital photo keychain. It is great for when you are out and about and happen to run into an old friend or acquaintance and you want to show off some family photos.
