Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest (and Giveaway)




The program brings together the society dedicated to inspiring people to care about the planet with the company rooted in developing products that offer high performance with more responsibility. Energizer brought the world’s first mercury-free alkaline batteries to market, commercially available since 1991, and now Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries last up to 8x* longer in digital cameras, so you can use up to 8x fewer batteries and create less waste for the planet. A dedication to performance and responsibility is the backbone of the new communication platform at Energizer called now that’s positivenergy™.
 
Photo enthusiasts must enter their best shots at www.nationalgeographic.com/lithium. They can enter a photo by June 30 in each of the six thematic categories: animals/wildlife, nature/weather, travel/cultures, family/community, arts/music and action/energy. From there, 20-year National Geographic photographer and contest judge Jim Richardson will review all of the entries and select two finalists in each Category. Then, from Aug. 15 through Sept. 15, the public will be asked to go online and vote for their favorite in each category. Once the Category Winners are determined, Richardson will help choose a Grand Prize Winner, to be announced on or about Nov. 8.

Only one person will be named the Grand Prize Winner but each of the six Category Winners will receive a prize pack valued at approximately $1,000 that includes an EPIC Action Video Cam, a Nikon digital camera, a Litepanels Micro® camera light, an Energizer® Lithium flashlight, an Energizer® Lithium Headlight, two books from the National Geographic Collection and an assortment of Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries.

This year the winner of the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest gets to play a role in selecting what part of the world’s beauty they want to enjoy. For the first time, Energizer and National Geographic are letting the Grand Prize Winner choose their dream trip location – the three options include an Alaska cruise of the state’s remote wilderness, a Moroccan odyssey spanning the sea to the Sahara or a 12-day journey into the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.

Maybe I can enter... (am I a dreamer... or what?)


 Entry into the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest begins May 17, 2011, at 12 a.m. ET and ends June 30, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Photos must be submitted online. No print or film submissions will be accepted.

FORRRRE!

The Card Game For Golfers


Do you know a father that's an absolute golf fanatic and has just about everything for the game? I certainly know a few... and if you do too, make sure to check out this fun card game especially for golfers called FORRRRE! It will definitely surprise and delight the golfer in your life.

About FORRRRE!
Waist Deep Card Games, LLC announces the launch of FORRRRE!, a brand new card game for golfers.  FORRRRE! is the inaugural offering from this new small business endeavor, and it’s sure to appeal to not only those who play golf, but anyone who has an appreciation for or basic understanding of the sport.

FORRRRE! looks and feels like any standard deck of playing cards, but it gives players the feeling of being on the back nine. The goal of the game is the same as playing a round of golf; you try to end with the lowest score.  FORRRRE! can be played in quick rounds or for hours of fun, but in the process, beware of sneaky gophers, lightning strikes, and erratic tee shots whizzing towards your head! All will cost you strokes. Complete with birdies, bogies, and cart girls, FORRRRE! is a dynamic way to experience golf without the expensive green fees.

With its bright colors and simple-to-understand instructions for game play, FORRRRE!  appeals to both kids and adults, and is enjoyed by master golfers and casual fans alike.

Father's Day Gift Guide: Lil' Teammates {Review & Giveaway}



Featured Sponsor

Do you know a father that's an absolute sports fanatic? I definitely do... and if you do too, make sure to check out these fun, cute and collectible sports figures that I just discovered called Lil' Teammates.

A little more about Lil' Teammates

Lil' Teammates are the hot new collectible toy from The Party Animal. These figures are about 3” tall and are officially licensed with the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and over 65 colleges. Currently, their Series 1 includes over 200 figures. There is a quarterback and a running back available for all 32 NFL teams. In addition to the NFL teams, there is one figure for every MLB team, and at least one pose for over 45 College teams. The initial rollout of the NBA and NHL offerings is also growing quickly.



ace and friends thoughts
 
The generous folks at Lil' Teammates sent over several little Detroit team guys for us to check out. I have to admit, these sports figures are even cuter in person. Not only did my husband think they were pretty cool... my son also thought they were super cool! They are certainly durable enough for kids to play with and the perfect size for the sports memorabilia collector in your life.

Lil' Teammates also offer an interactive website which allows adults as well as kids to register their figures, play games, learn about their favorite teams and win free stuff!  These figures are for recommended for ages 4 and up and retail for $7.99.

Series 2 will be introduced this summer featuring a new pose or a similar figure in a different uniform. They are looking to create sports figures featuring home uniform sets, away uniform sets, throwback uniforms, special uniforms or even possibly “Limited edition” figures.

Father's Day is just around the corner... and wouldn't this make a unique and delightful gift for the dad that has everything? Now.... go.... Tigers!

Father's Day Gift Guide: Energizer Qi Inductive Charger {Review}



Featured Sponsor
My iPhone. My connection to the outside world. Always in use and in need of constant charging. The hassle of having to plug in and charge has been simplified courtesy of the Energizer Qi Inductive Charger

What exactly is Inductive Charging and Qi?

Inductive charging is what happens when two devices—one designed to send power and the other designed to receive it—touch one another and energy is transferred between them. Until today, these two devices had to be designed specifically for each other. But Qi changes all that.

Qi (pronounced "chee") is the new universal standard for inductive charging. It’s a common language for inductive chargers and devices to talk to one another. Established by the Wireless Power Consortium, Qi allows you to charge smartphones, cameras, mp3 players and anything else that needs 5W or less without directly plugging the devices into anything. Since it is an open-sourced, interoperable standard, it is very similar to other open standards like Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi™. It is anticipated that the Qi universal standard will be broadly adopted by mobile device manufacturers, providing you with the freedom to charge all Qi-enabled devices on a single station without multiple cords and eventually without accessories.

 ace and friends thoughts
The Energizer Inductive Charger is super simple to use. First, the Inductive Charger must be plugged into the wall. After it has been plugged in, all you need to do is place your phone or other tech device on top and via the Qi technology, the phone charges cable/plug free. Please note, the Energizer Inductive Charger currently requires a special sleeve for your smartphone to communicate with the it.
Once your smartphone is placed on the Energizer Inductive Charger, a blue light illuminates signaling your devices are communicating and your smartphone then begins to charge. That's it, simple as that!

Pros: Easy to use, cable/plug free, convenient, can use with other various Qi-enabled devices

Cons: Sleeve adds a little bulk to phone, sleeve also covers USB port (please note: the sleeve is easily removable)

Currently, the Energizer Inductive Charger is compatible with iPhone 3GS/3G and Blackberry 8900, but the Qi technology will be incorporated into cell phone and other technological devices in the future. (Expanding the use of the Energizer Charger, hopefully eliminating the need for the sleeve - fingers crossed).

To learn more about the technological aspects of the Energizer Inductive Charger, please feel free to visit their website HERE.

Visit Energizer Inductive Charger's website HERE to locate retailers. 
Energizer Inductive Charger retails $89.99
Charging Sleeve $34.99

Chloraseptic Sore Throat Lozenges & Spray {Review & Giveaway}



With the change of weather recently, I've noticed that my allergies have really gotten the best of me. The constant drainage from the sinus pressure has led to a continuous sore throat. Thank goodness I was given the opportunity to try Chloraseptic's line of Sore Throat Lozenges with a Soothing Liquid Center. Perfect timing don't you think? As I was a little skeptical of the Citrus flavor, I still wanted to give it a shot because my throat felt so sore. I was glad I did because it provided instantly relief with a very soothing flavor.
The menthol and benzocaine-based formula provided quick and effective relief. The liquid center adds a second wave of medicine to relieve painful symptom immediately. Chloraseptic is the number #1 recommended brand by pharmacists. Chloraseptic Sore Throat Lozenges are available in Cherry, Citrus, Green Tea & Honey and Honey Lemon flavors and are available in either a 15 or 18 count pack with a suggested retail of $3.99.



With the kids still in school, they are always picking up something. My oldest daughter has been coughing for about a week now and she's mentioned that her throat is also sore. Thank goodness I had Kids Chloraseptic Sore Throat Relief Spray too. In the past, my daughter was certainly not fond of the taste of sore throat sprays. The grape flavored spray was the perfect flavor to alleviate any issue. This spray was perfect in numbing her sore throat pain.

This spray is alcohol free, aspirin free and sugar free. The 6 0z. sore throat spray is also available for adults and retails for $6.25.

In addition to the the full size spray, Chloraseptic also offers a Pocket Pump Sore Throat Spray in Cherry. Perfect for on the go.

Overall, both products worked instantly on my daughter's as well as my sore throat pain. The soothing relief lasted for quite some time and was happy that I had them on hand. I would say that my daughter and I give these products two thumbs up!

Marie Callender’s Pot Pies: Better Than Homemade, really?



One of my all time favorite comfort foods is a good old fashioned homemade pot pie. I've tried to make them as delicious as my mom would make them, but I can't seem to get it just right. What could I do to get that same, if not better, great taste?

Fortunately, I came across an online article, not too long ago, titled “8 Grocery Store Products that are Better than Homemade (really)”, stated that Marie Callender’s pot pies are better than homemade.  Since I hadn't tried these pot pies before, I was more than curious to give it a taste test. A frozen pot pie, really... could it taste just as good as my mom's? Thankfully, I was given an opportunity through The Motherhood to give them the taste test I needed.


Interestingly, the Marie Callender pot pies can be heated in either the oven or the microwave. I chose the oven, because, well, that's how mom use to make her homemade pot pies and I wanted to give it a fair shake.

These pot pies were absolutely delicious. The crust was amazing, the vegetables were surprisingly crunchy and tasted quite fresh. It was more than generous in size and easily sharable with my kiddies. Overall, I would have to admit, this pot pie was much easier to make than homemade and comparably better! But shhhhh, don't tell my mom!


Disclosure: I’ve been compensated by Marie Callender’s and The Motherhood for this campaign. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Summer Road Trip + Twizzlers = Happiness!


Summer time is just around the corner and Twizzlers wants to be a part of your family's road trips this year!


According to family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” families are starting to think past the backyard “staycation” and are rediscovering the freedom of the open road. Kaufman shares the following tips for a fun and safe family road trip:

  • Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers
    Pull ‘n’ Peel
    Candy before snacking on them!
  • Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.
  • Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.
Our family will soon hit the road on our way to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We make sure to pack the car with lots of movies, activities and snacks including some tasty Twizzlers. Yum! I love to see my kids' smiling faces once we reach the sun-filled beaches! While in Myrtle Beach, we always make one additional short road trip to Charleston, South Carolina. There is so many historical sites and fun things to check out while we are there. The kids absolutely love it as do we and I am certainly looking forward to our summer vacation!


Where will you be heading this summer and what are your favorite road trip snacks?

Disclosure: I wrote this post in exchange for the possibilty of receiving a Twizzler Landmark Summer prize pack as a member of the Mom Bloggers Club. all opinions are my own!

Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil for Hair Treatment {Review & Giveaway}



Tropical Traditions is a company that produces Virgin Coconut Oil that is completely and freshly extracted from coconuts without chemicals, heating, or any further refining. Coconut oil is amazing to cook with, amongst multiple other uses, and has been found to be high in antioxidants.

A little about Tropical Traditions founders from their site:

Brian W. Shilhavy, BA, MA earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible/Greek from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, and his Master of Arts degree in linguistics from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. He is currently the CEO of Tropical Traditions, Inc.

Marianita Jader Shilhavy, BS, CND (Certified Nutritionist/Dietitian in the Philippines) earned her bachelor of science degree in nutrition in Manila. Understanding the nutrition of Filipino foods, Marianita worked for over eight years as a hospital dietitian and nutritional counselor in the Philippines. 

In 1998 Brian  and Marianita returned to the Philippines with their three children and renovated Marianita's old family farmhouse. By this time the coconut industry was severely depressed due to the negative U.S. campaigns against tropical oils in the 1980s and 1990s. Coconut farmers could no longer support their families on the income generated from harvesting coconuts.

Coconut oil has been used for hair treatment in coconut producing countries such as India and the Philippines for thousands of years. Studies in India have been done on how effective various oils are on treating damaged hair. The study compared mineral oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil because these were the three most commonly used oils in hair treatment products used in India.

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil for Hair Treatment is specially made for hair application. It has a slightly higher amount of protein than our other coconut oils, due to the presence of coconut solids. 

The findings clearly indicate the strong impact that coconut oil application has to hair as compared to application of both sunflower and mineral oils. Among three oils, coconut oil was the only oil found to reduce the protein loss remarkably for both undamaged and damaged hair when used as a pre-wash and post-wash grooming product. Both sunflower and mineral oils do not help at all in reducing the protein loss from hair. This difference in results could arise from the composition of each of these oils. Coconut oil, being a triglyceride of lauric acid (principal fatty acid), has a high affinity for hair proteins and, because of its low molecular weight and straight linear chain, is able to penetrate inside the hair shaft.(1)

ace and friends thoughts

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil for Hair Treatment smells amazing. This product can be used to alleviate dry scalp issues as well as a hair conditioner. When using it for dry scalp, all you need to do is rub it into your hair and scalp 30 minutes prior to showering or before bed at night (make sure to wear something on your head or place a towel on your pillow to protect your bedding). If you prefer to use it as a hair conditioner as I did, all you need to do is rub it into the ends of your hair after washing while your hair is still wet or it can also be applied as a pre-wash before showering. It left my hair feeling super soft and gave my hair some added shine. My hair looked and felt super healthy! Finally, it's perfect for ALL hair types! My kind of product.
