Modern Wall Graphics Giveaway

February 7, 2010

Heres one you’ve seen before but I could’nt resist another. It`s a vinyl wall graphic from Modern Wall Graphics.

The Great people over at Modern Wall graphics were kind enough to let us pick out our own wall decals and the time couldn`t have been better as Lee has just about finished doing my bathroom renovation. The vinyl I chose was a custom Quote that fit perfectly with my Rubber Duck themed bathroom. The Vinyl reads, “Rubber Ducky You`re the One…” in bright yellow lettering.

The Vinyl was a littel bit thicker than most which made it very easy to install and no worry about ripping/tearing it if I wasnt careful enough. This however leads me to wonder how it would do on a textured wall, it may be a little trickier than some others, but I’m sure that with some patience and possibly a little heat from a blow dryer it would do just fine. The Letters have been up for a bit now and on the wall right directly above the bathtub which had me a little worried from teh steam and the humidity but after being up through multiple baths from everyone they are still stuck there as good as the first day.

Modern Wall graphics has a lot of designs and wall sticker options to choose from and had I not been amidst the bathroom reno and having the option of a custom I would have had a hard time deciding on something. They Have graphics for Classic look, Modern Look, Kids, Quotes and so much more. They are Removable, Inexpensive, No mess, No skill required and best of all REPOSITIONABLE, none of the other ones I have reviewd up until now were!

~WIN IT~
Modern Wall Graphics wants to share their beautiful work with a Jabbering Jessi reader.  So to do this they are giving one lucky reader a $200 gift certificate to go shopping at their online store.

Rugs USA

February 7, 2010

Rugs USA is an online area rug superstore with all kinds of Rugs, in all kinds of shapes, sizes, styles and colour. No matter what your taste is or how your room is decorated you’re sure to find a rug to fit it at http://www.rugsusa.com

Rugs USA sent me a sample braided oval accent rug in purple, which looks great on the floor beside Maddisyn’s Crib. It’s very soft and you can tell just by looking at it. This rug adds the perfect accent to her room, except for when the dog is sleeping on it lol. Even with it being in her room and the dog laying on it and everything, it stays remarkably clean and still looks as good as it did when we recieved it. There has been a juice spill or two on it and it was very easy to clean (although it was cleaned right away and no chance for the stain to set in at all). When Maddisyn is told to lay down to get her diaper changed she runs right to that rug to lay on because she likes how cushy it is.

Rugs USA offers, Free shipping, a 30 Day guarantee, Price Match Guarantee and a neat Loyalty Program (which i’ll explain in a minute).

Aside from Rugs they also offer Lighting choices, Clocks, Mirrors and art to bring your room to life.
The website is laid out perfectly for people that Know exactly what they are looking for and those who arent quite sure what they want. you can browse by size, style, colour, Material, Weave, size adn even price for the budget concious people like myself. They have been featured in shows such as, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Ty Pennington Style, Apartment therapy and HGTV as well as many home decor magazines There is no longer any reason to pay retail prices when you can purchase online and save with free shipping and no tax. At Rugs USA it’s like having a rug sale every single day. As I mentioned above they have a great Loyalty Program which can’t be explained any better than they did it so here’s a cut/paste form teh site.

The process is simple, the more you spend, the more points you earn, and the more you save. They calculate your point total by adding all your orders, minus freight, discounts and taxes for the past year. The total amount you spent determines the discounts you receive on all your orders. You must have an account on our site and you must be logged in to your account while placing an order for the points to accumulate

The loyalty point system works as follows:

Every $1 you spend earns you 1 loyalty point.
When your total points reach within the values below, you will automatically get the corresponding discount on your next order. Your points will accumulate for a 365 day period, which means points received on orders older then 365 days will be removed.

100 – 300 points = 5% discount
301 – 700 points = 7% discount
701 – 1200 points = 10% discount
1201 – 2000 points = 15% discount
2001 – 3000 points = 20% discount
3001 and above = 25% discount

Thank you to Rugs USA for this great product to review.

Darren Silver and Associates

February 5, 2010

So as you all know we are planning a mini-cation and while we are not going that long or that far we do not need to worry about visas and what not.  But if you are planning a trip that would take you on extended stay out of country I suggest you look into a good immigration attorney.  My friend was trying to immigrate to the United States to live with her husband so I have been reading on a lot of different Immigration lawyer/immigration attorney websites but I really liked what I saw on Darren Silver and Associates, they lay it out and I could understand it.

They deal with a wide variety of immigration visas including a non-immigration one for like students, fiances, religion or company transfers.  As well he does deportation removal, investment visas, green cards, family petitions and they deal with Canadian immigrations too.

One thing I got reading about on his site and was actually very interested in reading seeings how I live on a border is the EB-5 Visas, they lay it out and let you know what it is, what they help you do and what you need to do which most attorney websites don’t tell you and leave you guessing.  It also teaches you about Regional Centers and investing and getting green cards for the investor, spouse and children under 21. 

I only stopped reading the website to post this to you before my brain completely left me, I am off to read some more.

Pawparazzi

February 5, 2010

Maddisyn loves her kitty cats.  She is a big animal lover and has been for as long as we can remember so when we were given the chance to work with Pawparazzi we jumped at the chance.  Choosing what to review was too hard so I asked to be surprised and when I got the package we sure were surprised. 

We received the Misty Pawparazzi set, valued at $20.00, which consists of Misty the cat, a purse to carry her in, a leash and collar, blanket, matching mini notepad and a pop out trading card on the back of the package.  Misty is such a cute small kitty and Maddisyn loves to carry her around and dress her up.  Speaking of dress her up that brings me to the next thing we pulled out of the package, we received the Flower Fairy costume set, valued at $13.00, which comes with a fairy dress, fairy headband and dragonfly purse.  It is so cute to see Maddisyn dress up her Misty kitty and love her.  She brings her most everywhere with us and loves to tote her around in the purse mostly because she has her kitty but partly because it is the perfect size for her to have her own “purse”.  We also received a plush pink Pet Bed, valued at $4.50, which is where Misty sleeps each night in Maddisyns room.

This set does contain smaller pieces and is recommended for children ages 4 and up, Maddisyn is younger then that but she does very well with the set and puts nothing in her mouth anyhow but still plays with the leash and collar under supervision.

The Pawparazzi pets consist of 6 pets in total 2 cats and 4 dogs.  Maddisyn is in love with Roxy and Lexi the poodles and I think they will be a good Easter or birthday gift for her.

Thank you to Pawparazzi for these great products to review.

Boon Bug Pod Review & Giveaway

February 5, 2010
I love boon, they make the most adorable, functional and high quality kids products I have come across.  I got the change to previously work with boon on their squirt spoon back during my back to blogging bash.  I am now working with them again on another product that I am so in love with.  The bugpod, a hot pink one to be exact.

Quite a few months ago I won the frogpod from another blogger and it was Maddisyns bath toy keeper and my new best friend.  No more wet toys on the side of my tub or toy nets taking up corners allowing cold toy water to drip into the bathtub, and in the sheer amount of toys she had no more spending 10 minutes scooping and draining toys from the bath.  Then Holden was born and his bath toys started to invade the space in the bathroom, I contacted boon on working with them on another item but their stock on it was depleted so I will be brining that to you in April, in the meantime they offered me another item to review and I immedietly jumped on the bugpod.  I did not know it came in hot pink until I was given a color choice, of course I chose hot pink, pink is Maddisyns favorite color.  So now Maddisyn is using the hot pink bugpod and Holden has the frogpod and this is what my bathroom wall above my tub looks like.

I don’t mind though I love being able to take the body off and just scoop the toys and hang it back up.  The water drains out of the holes in the bugs body so there is no yucky buildup.  The fingers and antenna hold face cloths/bath sponges and there is a shelf at the head part that holds their shampoos. 
The pods attach to the wall using either super strong adhesive strips or with screws.  When I won my frogpod it came with a mounting bracket that was all suction cups (pictured below) but now you have to purchase that piece seperate for the frog or the bug and that costs $2.99 and can be bought here, I will be getting one for the bugpod because I like being able to move the frog if I need to and I have ceramic tile in my bathroom I do not want to put screws into.

Depending on which mounting type you use the pods can hold 5, 10 or 20 lbs.  If you want it to hold the max you need to use the screws, for 10 lbs you can mount with the adhesive strips and for 5 lbs you can use the suction cups.  I am using the suction cups with the frogpod and I am using the strips for the bugpod and they both hold the same amount although I don’t think we are near 5 or 10 lbs in toys.

To mount the Bug Pod to the wall using the adhesive strips we cleaned and dried the bathroom wall first with our water and vinegar and then with rubbing alchol which we let dry throughly.  We then mounted the bracket to the wall and let it sit for a full 24 hours before we even hung the main part of the pod on it, we then left it another 72 hours before we placed the outerbody with toys on it.  We have not had it fall off the wall and have been very happy with both.  If you use the adhesive strips and want to move it you can purchase a replacment adhesive strips.

The boon bug pod can be purchased from boon for $34.99 and comes in red/black or pink/black or you can get it from Amazon.

~WIN IT~

Mini-cation Getaway Giveaway Party Announcement

February 5, 2010
So we are planning a trip with the kids woohoo.  We will be having a Mini-Cation in March.  We leave on March 19 and will be back on March 22.  Not to worry I won’t leave you hanging I will be blogging while the babies nap in the hotel room and the older kids run wild.

In honor of our Mini-Cation we will also be having a Mini-Cation Getaway Giveaway Party here on Jabbering Jessi.  We have some amazing sponsors lined up so far but are looking for more.  So far we have Great Wolf Lodge, Jeep/Kolcraft, Lands End, Swimsuits For All, and Flex Flops. 
If you have a product you think would make a good fit for the event please feel free to email me at: jessicamatthews@shaw.ca.  We are still looking for a suitcase or luggage of some sort, swim diapers for the two babies, luggage tags, I really am in need of a laptop bag for my new laptop we are terrified it will get ruined on the trip but there is no way I can go without it.  We would also love to feature a camera of some sort for a company as well as baby lo-jack ok lol so maybe not the lo-jack but still lol.  Anything travel or vacation related we are interested in to make this event a huge success.  Also some flip flops or footwear for the others in the house since Flex Flops is going to make sure I am cruising the waterpark in style but my other little people will need some 🙂  I am already excited though about the sponsors lined up and can’t wait to share this experience with you all and hope we get some more great sponsors before the planned Mini-Cation.
A huge thanks goes out to Stefanie from Mommy’s Quiet Time for making this awesome button for me.  I did not even give her the name I gave her the dates and asked her to have at it because I had no idea and it turned out perfect.  Please grab my button and post it to your blog.  You will get extra entries if it is posted before the event starts.  Just fill out the form below once you have posted it so I can track this.  The form will be unavailable starting the day the event begins.

Pearl Paradise Giveaway

February 5, 2010
Treat your sweetie for Valentines this year and get her a Pearl Necklace.  Pearl Paradise sells great pearl necklaces at 80% of the retail cost.  Pearl Paradise was founded in 1996 and finally hit the web in 2000. Pearl Paradise has quickly grown into the world’s largest online pearl company.
Pearl Paradise is an online marketplace that carries all types of pearls in all sorts of colors and sizes.  You can get them in a wide variety of colors they carry white, black, lavender, pink, multicolor, and golden.  They carry pearl earrings, braclets, necklaces, rings and so much more.  They have freshwater pearls, akoya pearls, Tahitian pearls, golden south seas, white south seas, exotci natural pearls and a super gorgeous Bridal collection.
I received a pink-peach 7.0-8.0 AAA necklace which can be purchased for $189 and it is simply gorgeous.  I was never one for pearls and honestly never desired to own a pearl necklace but WOW, I got this one and tried it on and fell in love instantly and want a braclet to match it.  I love that the pearls can be dressed up in a nice dress to go out, think valentines day, or wear it with a pair of jeans and a cute top.  The necklace I got is the highest quality freshwater pearls available.  The only thing I wish is that the necklace was longer, I have a bit of a chunky neck and the necklace is so short that it kinda brings attention to it.   

 

This beautiful necklace is available in AA+ or AAA. The AA+ is very near round with good luster. The AAA is nearly perfect round, which is a rare attribute for freshwater pearls, with excellent luster and clean surface. The pearls are double knotted on color-matching silk, and finished with a solid, 14-karat clasp in your choice of white or yellow gold.
 
The pearls come in a gorgeous gift box perfect for gift giving.  It comes with certified appraisal papers showing the value of each necklace.  It also comes with a a pearl care kit with instructions to keep your pearls beautiful for years to come as well as a cleaning cloth.  They have provided with me with all I need to help make my pearls a family heirloom and make them something I cannot wait to pass down to Maddisyn.
 
~WIN IT~
