Ergonomic Uglee Pen - Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I am a pen junkie.  I can never turn down a good pen.  I had seen a review for Uglee Pens on another blog and I wondered if it really was as good as they thought.  Turns out I got my chance to find out!  I contacted them and they sent me three pens to try out in different colors.

Brief description from the company:
The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc., and for all children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills. It is also helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.
I have to say that writing with this pen is strange at first but it is so comfortable!  This ergonomic pen has rubber grip for your fingers.  It is a soft pliable material that mold to your fingers as you push the pen down.   I used to have a job a while back that required a lot of writing.  My hand would be achy and my fingers were always sore.  I really wish I had something like this comfortable pen to use then!

You can follow them in several ways and never miss out on a new product!

Follow Uglee Pen on Twitter
and of course you can order your own Uglee Pen HERE!

Right now though, you have the chance to win a pack of your very own Uglee Pens!

Good Luck!

Mía Mariú’s New Fragrance Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I love perfume.  I always have.  I am very girly when it comes to fragrance so when I had the opportunity to review one I decided to change it up and get a men's fragrance!  My husband really could care less about the way he smells.  Whatever is body wash and deodorant smell like is as far as he goes.  He will wear cologne for special occasions but on a regular basis he just doesn't think of it.  This makes me sad because I really love it when a man smells good!  It's always been a huge part of attraction for me.

I decided to look into it a little bit for the sake of this review and found that I am not alone and that it actually has scientific evidence to back it up.  I found this article, 5 Elements of Attractiveness, on Oprah.com that lists it as number one!
The fragrance I chose, Acqua, is described on their website as:
"rebellious, irresistible, seductive...pure masculinity"This clean, cool and refreshing fragrance offers a sophisticated scent with its unique blend of exotic ingredients. Acqua leaves skin aromatically scented with top notes of sliced ginger, star ruby grapefruit and white pepper, middle notes of warm nutmeg, Egyptian jasmine and skin musk while balancing perfectly with bottom notes of Texas white cedar, Haitian vetiver and Bois de Encens. Acqua embodies the essence of masculinity.

I have to say that I love this fragrance!  I would agree that it is a clean and fresh scent.  My husband likes it which didn't surprise me because he doesn't like the musky, woodsy type fragrances.  I had my dad try and it and he thought it was a little weak for his taste but he tends to like the good 'ol Brute and Old Spice type fragrances.  I also asked two my my female co-workers and they both "ooo'd" when they smelled it.  My one male co-worker liked it so much he took it and sprayed some on himself!
You can get your own bottle Mía Mariú fragrance here.  Here's your chance to try it yourself for free!!  Enter below for your chance to win your choice of three different fragrances from Mía Mariú!

Don't forget to like Mía Mariú on Facebook, follow Mía Mariú on Twitter, follow Mía Mariú Pinterest, and follow Mía Mariú on Google +.

Good Luck!

EveryDrop Water Filter Review

The water at work is terrible!  It's hard and has a metallic taste to it that sticks in the back of your throat.  Thanks to Chatterbox by HouseParty, I was able to try out the EveryDrop water filter  and it was up for a big task in my eyes.

Here is some info from Whirlpool who makes the EveryDrop water filter:
At home and on the go, the EveryDrop™ Water Filter freshly filters hard, soft, warm and cold water, everywhere you are. It's new from Whirlpool® Water and can filter one gallon in just two minutes – that's five times faster than the leading brand. Enjoy fast and fresh-tasting water at home for coffee or tea, cooking, making ice, cleaning fruits and veggies and for pet bowls, too. And its sleek design makes it easy to take on the go for filtered water at the gym, office, hotel, airport or dorm room. Plus, the filtering power of one EveryDrop™ Water Filter will save 450 plastic water bottles (16.9oz.) from the landfill.
I was seriously amazed at how fast the water filtered through and then to find out that the water tasted great too was fantastic!  My coworkers were very curious so I had fun explaining the details of the product with them.  They thought the carrying case was cute and a great idea!  I can't wait to try this when I'm out and about!

You can buy your own EveryDrop water filter from Amazon by clicking here!
It's $29.99 and you will get 1 Blue EveryDrop Water Filter, 1 protective travel case and 2 micro contaminant replacement filters.

We Survived the Holidays Giveaway!!

This giveaway is brought to you by Debras Random Rambles,

If your reading this, you have managed to survive the 2013 Holidays! Congratulations!!! 

Now I don't know about you but Christmas time is always a little nutty around our house.  Last year we moved into a new home 5 days before Thanksgiving and hosted not only that dinner but Christmas dinner too!  We were pulling casserole dishes out of boxes left and right!  Also, I have a three year old who was really into Santa and our Elf on the Shelf, Cookie Monster (he named him of course!).  This made it a lot more fun but also a lot more difficult.  I am not used to having to keep quiet about Santa gifts and such and I slipped a few times but I don't think my little guy caught on . . .

Now is the time to enter to win something for yourself as a reward! Use the easy Rafflecopter below to enter to win 1 of several prizes. Good Luck to all who enter!
