HGG-Pretty Woman Giveaway-US/CAN-Ends Nov. 28/14


A little about Barbara Orbison:
Barbara Orbison,is late wife of the late Roy Orbison and passed away Dec. 6, 2011
Her latest venture, the launch of Pretty Woman Perfume was especially personal and marked the fulfillment of a life-long dream to produce a fragrance that embodies the beauty in every woman.

Since she could remember, Barbara was always concoct-ing lotions and potions in her kitchen, creating a delicious skin cream or mixing a delicate fragrance. Growing up in Germany in a family entrenched in the world of high fashion as owners of a couture clothing line and working as a model herself, she spent many hours backstage at fashion shows surrounded by beauty products. Early on she learned to appreciate makeup artistry and recognized the importance of good skin-care regimens. She was also always fascinated with perfumes and intent on finding just the right scent. She regularly experimented with combing different oils and fragrances until she hit “the perfect note.” She was constantly asked by friends, colleagues and passersby what fragrance she was wearing because her scent was always so appealing and distinct.

By the time Barbara married Roy, she had already formulated the type of fragrance she wanted to create. However, she became immersed in the music world, writing and producing and helping to manage their thriving music business. Those demands, plus raising two sons, required her to put her fragrance dream on hold until now.
As with all of her projects, Barbara had been involved in every step of the development of Pretty Woman from conception to launch. She worked closely with perfumers to formulate the exact scent she desired. She selected the bottle from the prestigious Versailles de Porchet in Paris and worked closely with the graphic designers to craft a package and label that reflects the pure, elegant essence of the fragrance.

Pretty Woman is currently launching in specialty retailers including Fred Segal, Planet Blue, Private Edition in Nashville and The Peninsula Hotel in L.A. and it is available online at www.prettywomanperfume.com. The suggested retail price is $80 for 1.7oz.

Barbara continued to manage the music empire she helped to build as Roy’s manager. She often appeared on PBS stations around the country to introduce Roy Orbison & Friends: A Black &White Night, a spectacular multimedia event she helped produce to celebrate Roy’s music that features along with Roy such rock & roll luminaries as Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, T Bone Burnette and K.D. Lang. Her music publishing company, Still Working Music, currently has several records topping the charts including Taylor Swift’s #1 hit “You Belong With Me,” George Strait’s #1 “River of Love”, Gary Allan’s “Today” and Emerson Drive’s “I Love This Road”, and Robert Hart’s song “With You” in the film My Sister’s Keeper.

An avid traveler, Barbara spent her time between her homes in Nashville, TN, Malibu, CA, New York and London. She loved gardening and cherished spending time with her family and her many close friends.

For this giveaway, I have been sent a Pretty Woman candle and a cosmetic bag with the Pretty Woman logo on it. Take a look.

So one lucky person is going to win this candle and cosmetic bag and you won't beleive how wonderful the candle smells. If you have ever smelled the Pretty Woman perfume, you will know what I mean. Its awesome. Like the notes of a song, the notes of Pretty Woman Perfume open to reveal a complex melody of florals, spices and woods. Its crisp, luminous bergamot top note evolves to reveal a full, vivacious middle note accord of stargazer lily, red rose and carnation. The fragrance’s base note accord of fresh amber, patchouli, vanilla, atlas cedar and sacred incense combine with a lingering everlasting warmth and harmony. So get your entries in and you too will be able to enjoy the fragrance from this candle. It will come packaged in the lovely gold colored bag and you will notice the fragrance immediately. So enjoy!

***For all those who are not a winner in this giveaway, Pretty Woman has kindly offered a discount for you all good for 15% off in their online store.prettywomanperfume.com through the end of the year. Just use this code: TREASURES14
Thank you to Pretty Woman for sponsoring.

LampeBerger-Review

Here is something that would make an awesome gift for someone on your Christmas list this year or even for yourself. I received a Lampeberger and love it. This is the one I have. It came well wrapped and with great instructions. It smells so wonderful once its lit and you only let it go for 20 minutes. It smells up the whole house in no time at all.
You take out the wick,
Pour in your bottle of fragrance, in this case I received Enchanting Flowers.
After you have the whole bottle poured in you light the Catalytic Burner. It is heat generated by the exclusive patented catalytic burner attracts and eliminates noxious molecules at 500°C (red zone) The lower temperature core allows diffusion of fragrance at 200°C (orange zone) Duration of the burner’s life is 140 hours of diffusion or the equivalent of 7 bottles of 500ml fragrance or 1 year
of intense usage.
Once the flame goes down you just blow it out, Remember to only let it burn for 20 minutes, then replace the top and enjoy the fragrance that will go through your home. Once your 20 minutes are up, replace the top to seal it and then put your silver top on and its ready until the next time. Lampe Berger PURIFIES THE AIR-giving you better air quality by removing air pollutant molecules.
The best gift for the holidays!

Anis
Apple
Candied fruits
Cinnamon
Clove
Almond
Patchouli
Licorice
Vanilla
The perfect perfume for a warm and convivial atmosphere, where rich and
aromatic fragrances mingle with the scent of the pine tree and the log fire.
Cinnamon
Dried fruits
Apple
Caramel
Candied chestnuts

HGG-Warm Buddy Robe-US/CAN-Ends Nov.14/14


Today I have a fantastic giveaway for you. Its a Warm Buddy Robe and its available for either men or women. At the time, I was only able to get mine in the chocloate brown color and in a size that would fit my son. So my hubby volunteered to model it for me so you all can see how nice it really is.
This robe is a light-weight feel and has incredible softness. These robes hold up well against multiple machine washings and dry fast. These Spa Robes look like terry and will not pill. I know my son will love this when he sees it. My hubby thought it was for him. Sorry but its not for you this time. These robes come in Cream Plush, Chocolate Plush as my hubby is wearing and Aqua Plush. They also are in sizes Small: 8 - 12 One Size: 10 - 14 X-Large: 14 - 18
Now I have to tell you, my hubby is a big man. He is big across the shoulders and my son is the same way. My hubby put the robe on and he had lots of room to move and stretch so its a nice size for being x-large. It will be the perfect robe for my son to lounge around in and it will also be nice and warm as well as the lightness of it, he won't feel restricted wearing it.

The Warm Buddy Company has been in business since 1995. This company has many other products such as the
Original Warm-up Animals that have been featured on several parenting websites and blogs, and have also won a PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved) award for "excellence in parenting products".
They believe their rejuvenating natural heat therapy products are the highest quality and longest heat holding wraps available. Every mother, father and family should have at least one!
They have many other products on the website as well. You just won't be disappointed that is for sure.

The sponsor has graciously offered one of these robes to one winner and they get to choose the color and size. I would like to thank the sponsor for this giveaway. So get your entries in and you could have a nice gift for someone for Christmas or even for yourself. Good luck everyone.

HGG-Skin Products Giveaway-US-CAN-England-Australia-3 Winners-Ends Nov. 10/14


There are literally thousands of ingredients being added to skin care products on the market today. But almost all of them are not pure or natural, and by now you know that many of them are harmful to your health. With the cold weather upon us now, its even more important for us to take care of our skin.
I received bottles of AM Moisturizer and PM Revitalizer for both men and women.
Trusted Health Products products - Beautiful - our new all-natural skin care line for women or The Man – our A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. revitalizer for men.
But these 7 in particular are very good - not only to promote the youthful radiant appearance of your skin, but they also nourish your skin what it needs in order to stay healthy.

Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. Revitalizer for Women – personalized with your name on the bottles! Our new, 100% pure, live skin care system that brings life and beauty back to your skin without any chemicals - uses a rare combination of live fruit, nut and plant extracts to feed your skin cells and promote youthful, moist, beautiful glowing skin.
The Man A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. Revitalizer for Men – personalized with your name on the bottles - is a 100% pure, live skin care system that brings life back to your skin without any chemicals. The Man uses a rare combination of live fruit, nut and plant extracts to feed your skin cells and promote youthful, moist, glowing skin.
Here is the breakdown of the 7 pure botanical oils found in Beautiful AM Moisturizer and PM Revitalizer along with their benefits:

Almond - Moisturizes, soothes and softens skin, relieves itching from dry skin and gives complexion appearance of improvement and glow.
Orange - Cleanses the skin through natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties to help fight acne and restore smooth appearance to skin.
Lemon - Natural cleanser, preventative for wrinkling and aging. Significantly increases the anti-oxidative potential of the skin bio surface (to help stop damage to the skin).
Olive - Cleanser and moisturizer. Has shown preventative effects for formation of skin cancer and tumors.
Avocado - Significantly increases the soluble collagen content in the skin to enrich dry, damaged, chapped or wounded skin. Loaded with vitamins A, D and E.
Evening Primose - The nutrients in Evening Primrose Oil are essential for cell structure and improve the elasticity of the skin. There is evidence that it can help reduce wrinkles and even help repair stretch marks. It is also rich omega 6 fatty acids.
Apricot - light and gently moisturizes the skin. Containing vitamins A and E, it soothes the skin and slows signs of aging as well as firming and toning.

So when you combine the benefits of these pure ingredients together you get:
moisturizes, soothes and softens skin
helps relieve itching from dry skin
gives complexion the appearance of improvement and glow
cleanses the skin
helps fight acne
helps restore smooth appearance to skin
increases collagen
enriches dry, damaged, chapped or wounded skin
improves skin's elasticity
slows signs of aging
I am putting these bottles away for Christmas to give to my son and his wife. I am sure they will like them. Its not that often we see products that are for men and their skin so I think these will be great.
The bottles have directions on the back and also comes with a paper telling you how to apply, Detox, and what to expect during detoxification. So I have one bottle of your choice to offer as a giveaway to 3 winners. If you want to give this to a friend or loved one,or keep for yourself you can have the bottle personalized with the first name like I did with Kevin and Lori.
So get your entries in and good luck.

(HGG) The Melting Pot Cookbook- 2 Winners- US/CAN- Ends Nov. 6/14

The Melting Pot Cookbook, is a Jewish Grandmother's Good Old Recipes from the Good Old Days. It's not a kosher cookbook, but it does have some of that "flavor". What it does have are recipes from the "Melting Pot" (German, Italian, Chinese, etc.) ALL made with common ingredients found in any kitchen. None of the usual exotic, expensive stuff that most modern cookbooks recommend.

Everyone who has one (this is a second printing) loves it and uses it, and is happy with the unusual and attractive looking recipes. (like the 7 layer jello mold, or the triple salad mold). (Grandma thinks that entertaining is a competitive sport, and her recipes reflect that. She includes two or more recipes for some things like the Broiled Chicken and the Brisket recipes. There are several recipes for Brisket and she tells you which is spicy and which is sweet. A lot of her recipes have a story to go with them such as where she learned the recipe or why it was a favorite or even why the recipe calls for a certain item like (sauerkraut in a chocolate cake).


Let's take a look at some of the recipes in this book. There are 262 pages with titles such as: Appetizers, Soups, Entrees, Vegetables, Salada, Salad Dressings, Sauces and Stuffings, Pasta Dishes, Hot Breads, Sweet Breads, Rolls etc., Cookies and Cupcakes, Cakes, Icings, (Frostings), Glazes and Fillings, Pies and Desserts.
Some really fantastic recipes in here to please everyone. Here is one for you:

Chicken Italienne

1 2 1/2- 3 1/2 pound fryer
1 10 3/4 ounce can tomato soup
1/4-1/2 cup water
1/4 cup grated onion
1/2 teaspoon each: garlic powder, basil and oregano
1 cup Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Mix tomato soup, 1/4 cup water, and all the seasonings and pour over chicken parts in well greased small roasting pan. Bake, covered, for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese, uncover and return to oven for 20-25 minutes more baking, or until chicken parts are tender. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese when serving.
Serves 4.

Another one you might like is:
Congo Squares

2 3/4 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup margarine or Crisco
3 eggs
1 cup nuts, chopped
1 6 ounce package chocolate tidbits
1 pound package brown sugar

Mix flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. Melt margarine and place in large mixing bowl with the brown sugar and mix well. Cool slightly. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add dry ingredients, nuts and chocolate tidbits. Pour into very well greased 9 x 13 inch pan and bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. When almost cool, cut into squares.
Makes 48.

The book is stocked full of great recipes and I am sure you will love them all. As mentioned above, its got German, Italian, Chinese, etc. recipes in here. So get your entry in today and you could own one of these cookbooks.

A little about the author:

She was born in 1912 and she has a family that extends way beyond a husband, two sons, a daughter, a daughter in law and three gorgeous grandaughters.
