Burt's Bees Intense

I am a BzzAgent and received a kit from Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Line.

I've been using the Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream for several nights in a row.  The first thing that struck me was the smell. It is so nice and soothing. I'm not a person that likes perfume. I prefer most things to have no smell or a very low smell. The Clary Sage feels more natural than perfume-y making me feel like I've gotten it at a spa. That's a big plus for me, since an overpowering smell, especially at night, would be a deal-breaker for me.

It is supposed to help reduce lines and wrinkles and I can't comment on that because I don't feel I have many lines and wrinkles to actually tell if this is working. It does feel heavier than a day cream, so it does feel very moisturizing.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Line.

Trying to Stay Calm Blog Giveaway!

Shauna at Trying to Stay Calm is giving away a $20 Target Gift Card and 3 of the Big G Monster cereals (Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry). 

Just click the link here: Trying to Stay Calm Giveaway!

I haven't had the monster cereals in such a long time, and now they have the 'vintage' packaging. I won't be able to pass that up in the store if only for nostalgia sake.

Good Luck!

Is it me?

I'm baffled once again by blogger. I have always had my buttons on both sides of my blog posts. Today, however, they are all on the left side. I have no idea why or how to change it back to the way I prefer.

All this after getting a new computer and all my settings have gone ka-bluey!

Punch Tab

I'm trying to understand the PunchTab Loyalty program widget. At first I thought the company was doing this to promote their own website, now I see it's to promote the individual blogger by giving incentives to their followers.
Unfortunately, I can't afford to start giving away Gift Cards, etc. So, now I have to figure out how to get rid of it.

I am so confused with Google +. I think I may have made 2 Google+'s on accident. I thought I was changing it from my gmail account to a different account, and I think that just made it turn into another account.

I guess I should have known that Google+ would prefer my gmail. I am just boggled by the fact it let me enter my name twice. I dunno. Today has been a day of many things being frustrating.

I am a BzzAgent and was lucky enough to get picked for this campaign. In the mail is a free coupon for me to try BallPark Beef patties, but I couldn't wait and bought the product without the coupon.

Yesterday I had a BallPark Beef and Onion patty for lunch. It was so quick! I was surprised. It took 70 seconds in the microwave, shorter time than it took to toast my flat bagel and get my condiments ready. I truly expected it to take longer since it was frozen solid.

They advertise it as juicy and I will have to agree that it is quite juicy and not at all tough. It's great that it's so quick. When you're in a rush you can just pop it in the microwave and get the rest of the sandwich ready and you're done. It's even quicker than ordering fast food!

I was introduced to this site by BzzAgent in exchange for my honest opinion.

I took the BzzAgent Smarterer tests. My score is up to Familiar. Unfortunately, it went down a few notches because with each question you get a +/- score.The nice thing about it, I've learned a few things about BzzAgent I hadn't known before.

There are other tests for different websites, one being Facebook. The theory of this site is that by taking peer created tests you can see exactly how much you know about a certain subject. I'm not sure if I subscribe to the logic of this site. There were some questions that were given 3 obviously wrong answers and one right answer worth 20 some points. Certainly, I could have rated this question as a bad one, but I didn't want to be bothered as I really don't see this as a good representation of general BzzAgent knowledge. I wonder if the Facebook one will be better or worse.

Cook'n Recipe Organizer Software

I am very happy to say that I won Cook'n Recipe Organizer Software from the blog Just The Two of Us!

I really love how the sponsor quickly emailed me and gave me the option of a hard copy CD or I could download it and have it immediately!

Since I prefer always having a hard copy, I've been through too many computer crashes, I haven't received it as yet. Once I do, I will definately blog about it and give my opinion. We are really looking forward to it!

My daughter loves to get recipes from the internet, but she always changes them. Hopefully I will be able to go into the recipe and record her changes. I say that I will because my daughter not only hates to use a recipe verbatim, she also hates to do the same recipe twice. I, on the other hand, would love to make her recipe but she doesn't leave much to go on.
