HGG- Ripley's Believe It or Not! Unlock the Weird!-US Only-Ends Dec.15/16



Have you ever seen a Ripley's Believe it or Not book or maybe even visited a museum? There sure are some fascinating things in the book. The book has been named a Mom's Choice Awards winner, a distinction that the company is very proud of. The book is a mind-blowing collection of fantastic, fun, and even freaky stories from around the world. Sections include Animals, Pop Culture, Feats, Art, Food, and Beyond Belief. What they all have in common is that they’re all true and handpicked by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!—the authority on all things unusual and incredible!


Here are some of the stories there is in the book for you to enjoy:
**Read about one man’s attempt to take a break from reality, spending three days climbing the Swiss Alps on all fours as a goat!

**Soar on jetpacks above the deserts of Dubai with breathtaking aerial imagery.

**Meet Birdman Ted Richards who had his ears removed and his face and eyeballs tattooed to look like his pet parrots!

**Savor the flavor of sheep dung spitting, an Irish event that is just as unappetizing as it sounds!

**See double with Twin Strangers’s Niamh Geaney, who has found multiple doppelgängers that look exactly like her!

I really must warn you that some of the photos are a bit nasty like this the dung spitting for one.
In an annual festival in Ireland, sheep dung spitting participants take sheep excrement into their mouths and attempt to spit it the farthest. Some even source dung directly from the sheep!

Others are pretty neat. This first photo is Birdman.


Some of the photos are quite pretty and interesting like this one:
In Wujin, China, a unique government building takes its name and form from the lotus flower.

This is a hard cover book with hours of enjoyment. One lucky person will win a copy of this same book. US Only.
Good luck everyone.

HGG- beside-u.ca bag giveaway, Canada Only Ends Dec.14/16


Do you love handbags as much as I do? I needed a new one very badly and was lucky enough to be sent one from beside-u.ca The bag I had was all torn in places and was ready to be thrown out. Now this bag I received is very nice with lots of compartments.
It has an RFID guarded pocket. It has a tag that is red on one side and grey open the other which shows that. Also, when you open the main compartment you will see that there is a small rectangular red tag with an RFID symbol on it. This is identifying that pocket as the RFID guarded pocket. The last thing about that is that the inside lining of that pocket is a gold material that is crinkly. It is very distinctive and this is the material that blocks the RFID.
The material of this bag is nylon which is made from a rip-stop nylon, similar to what parachutes are made out of. The nylon is made into little squares so if one part of the bag rips it will stop the rip from spreading past that square. I really love that part. Their nylon bags are water-resistant. Anything with a zipper cannot be water proof. The bags have been worn around the world and are very durable. They are easy to wash – just use soap and water and the majority of the marks on your bag should come off.
This bag also has an adjustable strap that you can make longer or shorter whichever you prefer.

This bag has a lot of accessible pockets which are handy while you are on the go. On the inside it has open slip pockets for glasses/phones/whatever and a pen pocket to help you keep organized. The interior lining is a light colour so it is easy to find what you are looking for in your purse. If the lining was dark it is sometimes hard to see. On the outside there is an elastic pocket for a water bottle/thermos and a zip pocket for a camera.
What is very different about this bag as well is the detachable whistle so if you ever needed help you can blow the whistle. Hopefully the day never comes that you need to use it but its a comfort to know its there.
I have to change my purse over to this new one but wanted to show you all first what they are like.



The winner of this giveaway is going to receive this purple bag below
I love the color of it. This bag is the Roxanne bag. It is a purple bag from the Creed collection but it is not on their site. It was a bag that is actually one of a kind in Canada.

Now for those who don't win but would love one of these bags, the sponsor has offered a discount of 15%. It will be unlimited use for the holidays so we can add a note that it can be used AND you are encouraged to share it with family and friends. The 15% off will include bags that are regular price as well as bags that are on sale. Select bags are on sale for 25% off so if the code was used on these bags the consumer will get a total of 40% off. You can't ask for anything better. This is the code for you to use if you care to buy a bag. MLHT15
So go to beside-u.ca and check out all the bags they have to offer. I know you will find at least one you like.
Now onto the giveaway for one winner. Good luck everyone.

But Badger's friends have a few tricks up their sleeve to try to get the snow's attention and distract their pal in the meantime. In the end, Badger sees there's no trick-only waiting until at last, it's time.

HGG White Plum Giveaway-US Only Ends Dec. 10/16


Recently I received two pair of leggings from White Plum
that I am giving to my grandaughter for her birthday next week. She loves leggings and I know she will love these.


Now I have no idea why this pair look more on the reddish side but they are black. This is the wide waist band it has.

Now the winner of the giveaway is going to receive an exclusive White Plum grab bag with 3 products selected at random. The winner will need to send me their (top, bottom, and shoe sizes). Now I have to say the leggings I received were not large enough for me. They will fit my 9 year old grandaughter perfectly and she is of small build. The black leggings are a plus size but will still fit Ava. Just to keep in mind if you are our winner.

Go to http://www.whiteplum.com #shopwhiteplum and see the other products this company has to offer. You just might find something there for a gift.
So get those entries in and good luck to everyone.

(HGG) GreenPan Wok-Canada Only-Ends Nov.30/16

Last year I was given the opportunity to do a giveaway for a frypan from GreenPan www.fresco-intl.com and now this year here we are again. This time I have a Wok that someone is going to be lucky enough to win.
I love these products, and I use my pans all the time.
The Wok I received this time has the dimpled surface and its non-stick. Hubby made a stir fry in the Wok the day after we received it and I tell you it sure does hold a lot of food in there. It has the GreenPan logo on the bottom of the Wok as well as all of their pans do. Greenpan thinks that cookware should match the food being cooked, so they developed different surfaces for different food categories. All Milan 3D products are divided into three different surface categories: flat, dotted and ribbed patterns.
There are many pans this company offers like the Milan 3D Black Alum.24cm ribbed as well as Milan 3D black 28cm open skillet, dotted pattern, and the Milan 3D 28 cm open Wok with dotted pattern and they have the Milan 3D black 24cm Alum Induction with no pattern just to name a few.

There are many more pans and cookware products on the site.
Not only do these pans offer an evenly distributing lightweight aluminum body, they are also coated which makes them easy to clean and dishwasher safe. The stainless steel handle allow the pans to go into the oven as well!!

Did you know?
Thermolon is an excellent heat conductor. This results in superb searing and crispy frying. The perfect heat distribution allows even cooking, which makes the food brown beautifully. It allows you to mostly cook on low to medium temperatures which is great for lowering your energy bill.

Thermolon Ceramic Non-Stick
Thermolon is the patented ceramic non-stick coating that GreenPan uses on its non-stick products. It has excellent thermal conductivity which allows perfect frying results with lower heat settings than traditional non-stick coatings. The coating is also highly scratch resistant, very hard and very resilient to thermal shocks.
*Thermolon is a ceramic non-stick coating
*Manufactured with out PFOA, it contains no lead or Cadmium
*No toxic fumes will be released, even when overheating. This means that GreenPan™ has an extra safety feature; if you overheat your pan, even up to 450/850oF, no toxic fumes will be released and the coating will not blister or peel.
*The thermolon coating is healthy, safe and does not contain any toxic chemicals or persistant pollutants.
The unit is available at Home Outfitters and Amazon if you are looking to build out your set or begin one.

One lucky person will win a GreenPan Wok just like the one I received. I know you will be very pleased with it.
Good luck everyone and sorry this is for CANADA ONLY.
