My Memories Suite -***Free Scrapbooking Software Giveaway***

Attention all scrapbookers! This giveaway is for you! My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software is a fun and creative way to keep and share memories, whether you have a Mac or PC. The software's design tools will help you to build entire albums effortlessly using one of the many installed templates, or designing your very own pages from scratch.
I LOVE scrapbooking! I just really struggle finding the time for it, not to mention I make a humongous mess when I do! Stickers here, scraps of paper there,...ahh! Stresses me out just thinking about it! That is one of the many great things about My Memories Suite. You have all your scrapbooking needs in one spot. No mess or clean up. Also, it's fast, and easy to use. Simple enough for beginners, yet powerful enough for a serious scrapbooker.

When I was asked by My Memories to review their software, I was super excited! I've been wanting to try something like this for a while, but never put any serious thought into it, because I thought it wouldn't be worth it. Well, after playing around with it, I know that I will definitely get some great use out of this! It's so great because one of my excuses for not scrapbooking is having the hassle of printing out the pictures. Since all my pictures are digital now, this software is perfect! I have everything I need in one spot.
I didn't think I would have much to play around with because I figured all the good stuff would be the extras I would have to purchase. But it actually includes some really nice layouts! It comes with papers, embellishments, and all kinds of goodies. Of course they do have backgrounds and kits available to purchase, which I will be doing! This is great for different kinds of projects!
I have been wanting to make my three year old an ABC photo book and it's going to be so much easier now that I have this!
Here is an example of a scrapbook page I made with pictures of my kiddos from this last Christmas and one of the layouts that was included with the program...

I love it! Not only does it make a great scrapbook edition, it would make a great Christmas card! And it gave me the idea to make calendars for my family! The possibilities are endless. :) You can also make virtual projects to send to family, and that is such a neat option because you can add music, video and narration! I love that! I will have to do something to send to my grandparents out of town. They will love it!

I was very happy to see My Memories Suite is very user-friendly, because that was my main concern. Now I have a ton of projects lined up and I'm so excited!

Here is something exciting for all of you! Would you like your own copy of My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbooking software? Read on to see how!

DaVinci Gourmet Syrups Review/Giveaway

Alright, I know I say this all the time, but I always mean it! I am so excited about this review! lol Seriously though, if you know me, you know my love for coffee. It's seriously one of my most favorite things. So I was so excited to receive the opportunity to review these amazing gourmet syrups from DaVinci Gourmet!

These are the three flavors that DaVinci Gourmet sent me to review...

...I snapped this picture with my phone almost immediately after receiving them, and yes, I had already gotten into the raspberry flavor. I was dying to smell it! haha... And let me tell ya, it smells gooooood! :) I have tried all three flavors, and no lie, they are all delicious. That is my absolute, honest opinion. I didn't think I would like the hazelnut, because when I opened it the smell was really strong, not bad, but strong, so I thought it was going to taste really strong. I added about a tablespoon to my coffee, and it was not at all overwhelming. It was just right and tasted great. The vanilla flavor was my favorite! I personally thought that my coffee ranked right up there with a coffee shop coffee with the vanilla. Super yummy! I was excited about the raspberry flavor, because before I received this in the mail, I didn't realize that DaVinci offered sugar free versions of their syrups! I love this, because I count calories, and it's kind of a bummer to use them on your morning cup of coffee, and with the sugar free syrups, you don't have to! :) And let me say, it does not taste sugar free! It was just as delicious as the other two, honestly! That is the first time I've tried raspberry in my coffee, and I'm definitely I fan!
Some of the other flavors DaVinci offers are white chocolate, chocolate, pumpkin pie, peppermint and cinnamon. Um...YUM!!! They also have all natural syrups. There are no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, which I know is very important to some people. Some of the all natural syrup flavors include caramel, almond, strawberry, peach and creme de menthe. Again...yum!

Now, I know I'm going on and on about coffee, but you can get much more creative with these syrups! DaVinci has multiple recipes on their site for each syrup! I'm talking recipes for biscotti, truffles, hot chocolate, lattes, steamers, smoothies, milkshakes, even recipes for food entrees, and many, many more. I haven't tried any, but I definitely will!
DaVinci also offers tea concentrates, fruit innovations syrups, and gourmet sauces! I believe all their products are reasonably priced, so please check them out! :)

Ready for some good news?? DaVinci Gourmet is offering three of their gourmet syrups to one of my lucky readers!
Flavors may vary due to product availability.

"If the Shoe Doesn't Fit" Website Review/Bracelet Giveaway

Happy New Year, everyone! It's hard to believe it's 2012!! Well, how many of you made a new year's resolution to clean out your closets?? It's one of mine! With so many new things coming into the house after Christmas, some things definitely need to go!

I was asked to review If the Shoe Doesn't Fit website, and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed! It's an auction site (think eBay) except for shoe lovers!
Some differences from ebay are:
·It’s a niche site – so you don’t have to look at a zillion other things when you want to look at shoes! No getting distracted and buying other things when you wanted shoes!

·Instead of charging BOTH a listing fee and a final value fee like eBay, it lets you choose whether you want to pay a low listing fee, or a fixed rate final value fee. This means you can make more money on your sales because you pay a lot less in fees!

·There are no extra or hidden fees for features light headlines, or highlights, or extra photos.

·If something doesn’t sell, you can auto-relist it up to 9 times for free!

·You can swap shoes with other shoe lovers on the site and swaps are always 100% free.

So those are all some pros! My cons would be that the selection isn't huge. That also depends on what size you are looking for. I wear size 9, and there isn't much there for me now. Every now and then I can wear a 9 1/2, and there was this pair that I'm kinda digging. :) I'm really bummed that there aren't ANY shoes in Max's size.

But I think the down sides to the site is just a matter of more people need to know about it, and the selection will grow! We just need to spread the word! I'm going to list a pair of shoes and see how they do! I am loving that you can auto re-list up to 9 more times, free of charge!

Over all, I think it's a great way to buy and sell shoes. More people just need to get involved!
To stay updated on If the She Doesn't Fit promotions, follow them on twitter here, and like their facebook page here!

Now, here's some great news for all of you! If you want to list shoes for sale, If the Shoe Doesn't fit has offered a special code for my readers for 5 free listings!
The code for the 5 free listings is...

Letter from Santa!

Just got free letters from Santa for my boys. Go here to get yours! http://www.tracerscouponaffair.com/2011/12/hurry-free-letter-from-santa.html

If you follow all the steps, the voucher code you get for the santa site is actually for $20. I thought it was just for 10... so when you personalize your letter and add it to your cart, it will give you the option to add the nice list certificate, a build your own Santa workshop sticker set and a letter from rudolph... Anyway, I got the letter, certificate and stickers with 2 bucks and some change left over on my credit. It covers shipping and everything!
My kids aren't old enough to get overly excited about getting a letter from Santa, but it will be fun to put it in their scrapbooks, or show them when they're older.
I'm sure some of you have kids who would freak out! Definitely take advantage of this!

Coke Cake

Okay, so if you're like me, one of your favorite things this time of year is making all those yummy holiday treats. The nippy weather just makes me want to bake! The house smelling like baked goods just says "Christmas". lol I love it!
But every year I dread the thought of gaining weight over the holidays. Especially this year after just having a baby, my mind is totally focused on LOSING weight.
With all those tasty treats, it is nice to have a nice alternative to satisfy those pesky cravings. This is a popular Weight Watchers recipe that has been one of my favorites for years now. Many of you may already know about it, but I wanted to share it in case there's any of you who haven't. It's a delicious, super moist, chocolate cake. That's right, a guilt free, chocolate dessert that actually tastes good!
One piece of cake equals to two weight watchers points, I believe. When you make cupcakes, it cuts the points in half, so 1 point! The calories depend on the cake mix you use, but generally it's around 160 calories.Why is it so low in calories?

Here's the recipe...

1 boxed cake mix

1 can diet soda

Yep. That's it!

For chocolate cake I usually use diet coke, and for a yellow cake you can use a diet sprite or 7up, your choice! The diet coke replaces the oil and eggs, which in return, makes it lower in fat and calories!

Just mix those two ingredients together and bake according to the directions on the box! It's a guilt free way to satisfy your sweet tooth, and guys, it really is delicious. My husband... the very picky chocolate lover, actually likes it. That's pretty huge!

If you want to, you can top it with fat free cool whip to add a little extra sweetness. :o)

Let me know if you try this for yourself, and how you like it!
