I'm hoping everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! As kids
make their way back into the classrooms, you can hear that
collective sigh from parents around the world. That sigh of
"after 3 months I have time to myself!"
If you're a teacher you're just getting back to work, how would you
like a free planner and folder samples? It's
one less thing you have to buy for the classroom. Just fill
in the form and pick the products you need (a school name is
required). Teachers can also get a free 24x36 "Huddle up with
a good book" poster. School name and address are required
on the form.
Now is a great time to get a free family portrait from Walmart.
It's a new year and a great time for everyone to sign up for their
birthday freebies! All you have to do is sign up for the offers
that you like below. Sometime during your birthday month you'll
receive an email with instructions on how to claim your freebie,
you may have to print a coupon or sometimes it's as easy as showing
I.D.. Grab yourself free meals all day long, or $5 off some shoes.
Some people unwind in the weirdest ways. I recently came across an article about a woman's experience with a milkweed facial. Milkweed is what caterpillars rest on before they turn into butterflies, and is supposed to have the same transformational effect on your skin. Apparently, it smells awful, however it's not uncommon for someone to endure such things for beauty.
There are lots of bizarre beauty treatments out there that people pay big bucks for. Read on about some of the other unusual ways people pamper themselves:
Beauty can be a pain, and hair removal is no exception. Despite some of the horror stories I've heard about epilators, I was pretty excited when I received the Braun Silk-epil Xelle 5180 ($70). With summer now in full swing, I don't want to have to be shaving my legs every couple of days.
When I was asked to test and review some skincare products from Elemis courtesy of generous folks at Time to Spa, I jumped at the opportunity. Free beauty products to try? Yes, please. They sent over a set of four products to try all tucked into a cute silver bag.
