I'm not the kind of girl who wants to receive a vacuum as a gift- not unless it's a Dyson! The thing is, Dyson vacuums are so much more than vacuums as far as I'm concerned; they're little pieces of design genius!
The first Dyson vacuum on the market took my breath away. I'd never seen a vacuum that wasn't black or red... and I'd never seen one that worked it worked either. Besides looking great, what makes a Dyson different? Instead of using suction to pull all of the debris out of your carpet they use a patented cyclone technology that never looses suction power- no matter what happens! Cool, huh?
Fast forward a few years and now Dyson has put they're smallest model ever out onto the market, the DC26. That's it next to those books in the picture above to give you a sense of scale. Tiny!
If you'd like to win a Dyson DC26 (and who wouldn't), just click here to head on over to Our Ordinary Life and read the instructions to comment to win. There are a ton of ways to earn entries so be sure to read the full list. I'm actually earning entries by posting this right now!

How cool!
If you're like me you love fall boots. I don't know a woman out there who isn't swooning over a pair or two of the new styles this year. I love that over-the-knee boots have come into fashion and would love to own a pair of my very own. I'd also love it even more if I WON a pair!
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to have a personal shopper? What about if you had an assistant that would point you to discounts and deals on everything you purchase before you buy it? Sounds great, right?

I love game shows. Don't you? I have especially always loved trivia-based game shows like Jeopardy and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. I actually even tried out for Millionaire with a friend once! I didn't make the cut, but I was a phone-a-friend for someone! He called another friend instead of me but it was super-exciting none the less! On top of it all, he ended up winning $32,000!!! Yea!
The new season of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire starts back up this fall on October 13th and to start the season off right IE Mommy joined them to give one luck reader a $50 gift card and a Millionaire prize pack! Cool!

As some of you may know from my other blog, I'm Walking the 3-Day, I am participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure this November here in San Diego.
My dear friend Barb passed away this year after an heroic 5-year battle against breast cancer. I am walking in memory of Barb and for her struggle and to bring awareness about this horrid disease and its prevention.
A while back when I was looking for some good walking shoes for the (60 mile long!!!) walk I came across the coolest New Balance Lace Up for the Cure Shoes. Just check them out. How cool are they? Even better than the fact that they're pink is that they're customizable with your name or "in memory of" or whatever you want them to say! Fun!
Wow. Please slap me. Someone needs to hold my hand and make me breathe. I'm really so shocked right now and so excited. Effortless Anthropology, a fab blog is actually giving away the three (very beautiful) Les Khakis de Chanel nail polishes that were released as part of a limited edition for 2010 Fashion's Night Out!
I have loved all three of these polishes since I saw the ads flying across cyberspace like hotcakes...and now someone is actually giving them away!
I attended Fashion's Night Out here in San Diego and our Neiman Marcus store didn't have the three polishes or I would have left home with a big hole in my wallet.
If you, like I, can't wait to get your grubby little paws all over these beauties, just click here to head on over to Effortless Anthropology and follow the instructions on how to comment to enter.
Hurry, though! The giveaway ends on September 19, 2010!
I recently took a good look at our digital camera and decided we needed a new one. Ours is plain old. Really old. It's a nice enough Kodak camera and it actually takes pretty good pictures but it's big and it doesn't hold a lot of pictures and the process of downloading the pictures to our computer is just antiquated. Did I mention how BIG our existing camera is?
I'm an email subscriber to the Ascending Butterfly blog for a couple of reasons. One, I love her words of wisdom and inspiration in my inbox. Two, she has AMAZING giveaways!
This giveaway is certainly no exception. Ascending Butterfly has paired up with premeire handbag designer, Elliott Lucca, to give away the new Trapezoid Satchel in Twilight (a beautiful greyish- violet) to one very lucky reader!
Just look at that fabulous bag! What woman could resist that? I know it's the bag I want on MY arm this fall!
Love the purse as much as I do? Then just click here to head on over to Ascending Butterfly and follow her instructions to comment to win!
Link of Support is a great resource for women with cancer and their friends and family who want to support them. I think it's a wonderful idea as so many times as women we want to love and support our friends in need but don't always know the best thing to do to help.
I have another AMAZING nail polish giveaway for you all today! Over at Polish and Konad Ashley is giving away some of the most coveted polish- Deborah Lippmann! On top of that she's letting you choose any three polishes YOU want!
Now, I've never plopped down the big bucks for a Lippmann polish, although I've been "this close". Deborah Lippmann is known as manicurist to the stars and her polish collection refelcts that. She pairs up with musicians and actresses to create wild colors based on song names or the stars' names. Pretty cool, right?
I've also heard the polishes are basically a dream to work with and that they go on smooth and pigmented and stay on and chip free for days.
Which three polishes will you choose?

Almost no freebie or giveaway prize can compare to a gift card. I totally love being able to spend the money on exactly what I need. When I win a gift card I always feel excited like I had a spike in my budget or that I get to splurge on something I otherwise wouldn't buy for myself.
So how excited do you think I got when I found a new blog, Mommy Wants Freebies and to top it all off I found out that she's currently running a giveaway for a $100 Safeway gift card?!? I get all of my groceries at Von's, our local Safeway store and would just be extatic to receive a $100 gift card there!
Our grocery budget runs right at about $100 each week for all of our meals. I do a meal plan every week for breakfast, lunch and dinner and then make a grocery list from that. We do eat out on Fridays and we're on our own to make a meal out of leftovers on Saturday and Sunday lunches. Other than that our $100 budget makes us all of those meals! I feel pretty good about how low we keep our food budget, but if I won a $100 Safeway card it would make me feel even better about it! Who couldn't use a little help with the grocery bill right now?
If you would like to enter to win the $100 gift card yourself, just click here to head on over to Mommy Wants Freebies and follow her instructions on how to comment to enter! Simple as that!
Wow! If you haven't seen swatches and photos of the upcoming Fall 2010 nail polish colors from OPI and China Glaze, then you're in for a nice surprise!
Glamorous Geek Chic is giving away colors from both OPI's Swiss collection and China Glaze's Vintage Vixen collection! In my opinion she's chosen the best colors from both collations! She's including these OPI Swiss colors: William Tell Me About OPI, Ski Teal We Drop, Diva of Geneva, and Yodel Me on My Cell and these China Glaze Vintage Vixen colors: Swing Baby, Jitterbug, Emerald Fitzgerald, Goin' My Way?, First Class Ticket, and Riveter Rouge.

As many of you know, I love the blog "Leslie Loves Veggies". She always has the coolest giveaways around. Check out her Creative Nail Design giveaway I posted about eariler this week to see what I mean.
As you have seen for a while, Leslie Loves Veggies is one of my favorite giveaway blogs. She's been on my blogroll since the inception of the blog. Her latest giveaway has put me over the moon because she teamed up with CND (Creative Nail Designs)- one of my all-time favorite companies!
They are giving away the coolest prize package including SolarOil™ and Glossing Buffer Block™. Solar Oil has to be the world's best cuticle oil. I use it constantly in it's liquid form and in it's solid-like pan. Every chance I think of it I grab the pan out of my purse and dab some on my ragged tips. The next thing I know I look down and I somehow have amazing looking nails and fingers! I swear it's a miracle worker!
If you'd like your chance to win the buffing block and your own Solar Oil just click here to follow her instructions to enter to win.
So what exactly is a Personal Microderm? It's an at-home microdermabrasion tool (valued at $179) that works just like the ones at your professional dermatologist's or doctor's office...only you don't have to get out of your pajamas! What could be better?
Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective treatment that can be done to your face or body that exfoliates using aluminum oxide crystals. It also diminishes age spots and other signs of aging. Who couldn't use that?
This kit comes with three exfoliating discs, a facial attachment and assorted caps to work on your body as well as your face. It also comes with an instructional pamphlet and CD that will be very helpful, I'm sure.
Interested? So am I!

***I am not receiving any reimbursement as a result of this post. I am, however, receiving entries into the above giveaway.***
I love finding out about new services and products. I really find it's one of the great perks of entering online giveaways- especially blog giveaways. Companies often feels it's worth giving away a fun prize in order to get their name out in the blogosphere. I totally agree and can't count the number of times I've seen a product giveaway and thought, "Wow! That's great! I really hope I win that...and if I don't I'm still very interested!"
Now when I saw the post I realized I'd never heard of Kart Me or Rent the Runway. But I was intrigued!
Come to find out, Kart Me is a website where you can keep lists of photos and links. It sounds simple but it's really a great idea. You can create lists of recipes, fashion or home decor items, it's really endless. After you create a list or group all of your items togheter they provide you with a link to come back and visit or to give out to friends. Pretty great!
Rent the Runway is a website that allows you to "rent" dresses, clothes and accessories from the hottest new designers. It's a great site because it offers really trendy and usually unattainalbe (for me) items to rent for special occasions or just because. I love that I don't have to clunck down a mortgage-sized payment for a black tie gown or that hot one-shouldered mini dress I know I'll never wear again!
To win the $250 gift card from Fashionable Gal, head over to her site by clicking here and follow her instructions to create your own Kart Me cart and comment to win!

I would love to win these to give for my mom this year.
My mom is going to be in the hospital over Mother’s Day this year after some rough surgery. It’s killing me that she’s feeling so terrible and I would love to be able to give her an amazing gift like this to hopefully make her feel and look as beautiful as I know she is.
She's an amazing woman and she deserves the best of everything.

Earlier last night I was hanging out in 5 Minutes for Mom.com's and Dove Hair Glee for All Twitter Party. It was a ton of fun talking with other Gleeks about the amazing television show. They were giving away fun Dove Hair Glee for All prize packs and the grand prize was even a pair of tickets to see the sold-out Glee Tour! Boy, did I have my fingers (and toes) crossed to win that one! Alas, I was not so lucky, but at the end of the party there was an announcement to head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom.com to win another chance to win a ticket to the tour! Well, you know I clicked on over and what I found was this! ...
5 Minutes for Mom.com is run by identical twins Janice and Susan. They have created a great website that promotes bringing moms together to talk about parenting and motherhood. Be sure to click on over to check it out. Anyway, they have a pair of tickets to go to the Glee Tour in Phoenix, Arizona. The thing is, they so graciously wanted to share this with their readers, so they decided to send Janice and to chose a reader to go in Susan's place! Poor Susan! I decided I couldn't pass this awesome opportunity up! At their invitation, I created a vlog (video weblog) about why they should pick me to go to the show. Check it out!
Basically, I'm a huge Gleek (a Glee fan), and would just die if I could head to Phoenix to go to the Glee Tour (did I mention it was sold out???)!!! Also, being a new blogger, I would be thrilled to pick Janice's brain! She and Susan have grown their site so well and I have so much to learn. Plus, as I point out in the video, I'm fun! I promise to be a great Glee Tour partner. I will sing and dance in the aisles and generally Gleek out. In the end, I'm hoping by blogging and vlogging my entry into this contest shows my intventiveness, creativity, and perhaps desperation!
If you too would like a chance to go to the (sold-out) Glee Tour in Phoenix with Janice of 5 Minutes for Mom.com, just click here and read their instructions on how to comment to enter!
By the way, they're having another Dove Glee for All Twitter Party on May 12th from 7-8:30pm EST. Find out all about it here. I promise, it's a blast!
I love receiving flowers...but I love sending them more!
Who doesn't enjoy a special delivery full of floral cheer! Mother's Day is the perfect time to send flowers. My mom is such a special woman and I think she should feel special. Nothing does that for a woman better than flowers- well, maybe chocolate! :)
I just found an amazing giveaway where you can win a $100 Mother's Day bouquet from the blog With Love and Teleflora!
