Epiphanie Bag Giveaway

Pick Your Epiphanie Bag Giveaway

Welcome to the Epiphanie Bag Giveaway!

Hosted by

Sponsored by Epiphanie Bags

Epiphanie was started four years ago by professional photographer Maile (pronounced Mylie) Wilson. At the time, there were no cute camera bags for women. She hated lugging around a separate, bulky man-bag. So she'd end up leaving her camera at home or shoving it into her purse wrapped up in whatever was nearby; a towel, sock, sweatshirt.

Obviously that isn't the best way to protect expensive gear. When she realized that stylish camera bags for women didn't exist, she decided to create her own line. And it was obvious that she wasn't alone in a need for them. When Epiphanie launched in 2009, there were already almost 10,000 people on the waiting list, with all kinds of funny stories about the different things they used to wrap up their cameras: diapers, pot holders, even maxi pads!

Four years later, the collection has expanded from three to twelve styles and over 60 different bags that accommodate cameras, laptops and even backpacks for men.





{ GIVEAWAY DETAILS }

ONE (1) lucky winner will receive a Choice of Epiphanie Bag from Available Stock! Contest is open to US only, 18+. Contest ends July 12th, 2014 at 11:59pm EST. Winner will have 48 hours to respond to claim their prize (or another winner will be chosen). Good Luck!

Book Review: "Little Mercies" by Heather Gudenkauf

"Gudenkauf's prose is searingly raw... Thrilling and emotionally tender, this novel, with its driving pace, will appeal to fans of Lisa Scottoline and Jodi Picouot." - Booklist


New York Times bestselling author of "These Things Hidden" (2011) and "The Weight of Silence" (2009), Heather Gudenkauf returns with a new story of normal lives altered in the blink of an eye. Little Mercies is a remarkably poignant story of love and justice, told through the eyes of a guilt-ridden mother and an innocent child. Layered with tension and brimming with raw emotion, Heather Gudenkauf's latest tale centers around one woman searching for redemption.


DESCRIPTION:

Sometimes, one small mistake can have life-altering consequences…

As a veteran social worker, Ellen Moore has seen it all—the vilest acts one person can commit against another. The only thing that gets her through the workday is knowing her job helps children. That, and her family: her husband, Adam, and three beautiful kids, twins Leah and Lucas, and eleven-month-old Avery. But with a blink of an eye—with one small mistake—Ellen is suddenly at the mercy of the system she works for. Avery is ripped from her clutches, and her whole world begins crashing down around her.

Meanwhile, ten-year-old Jenny Briard has been living with her well-meaning but irresponsible father since her mother left them, sleeping on friends' couches and moving in and out of cheap motels. When Jenny suddenly finds herself on her own, she is forced to survive with nothing but a few dollars and her street smarts. The last thing she wants is a social worker, but when Ellen's and Jenny's lives collide, little do they know just how much they can help one another.

BOOK TRAILER:


WHERE TO BUY: The book is now available at local book retailers, Amazon, and Harlequinn.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Heather Gudenkauf is the author of the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling novels One Breath Away, These Things Hidden, and The Weight of Silence, which sold more than half a million copies and spent 21 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list. She lives in Iowa with her husband, three children and a very spoiled German Shorthaired Pointer named Maxine. She is currently working on her next novel.

Garcinia Cambogia Advanced & Slender Cleanse Advanced {Review}


Some of you have probably heard about Garcinia Cambogia weight loss products. I was recently given the opportunity to try out Garcinia Cambogia Advanced and Slender Cleanse Advanced.


GARCINIA CAMBOGIA ADVANCED

Lose weight and gain much needed energy in an all-natural veggie cap full of Garcinia Extract, now with new maximum strength advanced formula. It is taken as a dietary supplement: take 2 veggie capsules, 30 minutes before eating, 3 times a day. Whether you're looking to lose weight, eat less, control your cravings, or get your health back, this product helps give a little boost for the extra energy and weight loss.

Garcinia cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit, sometimes called tamarind. Though native to Indonesia, it is also grown in India, Southeast Asia, and West and Central Africa. It has long been used in traditional South Asian dishes, including curries and chutneys. Many also use the fruit for curing fish and preservation.

Garcinia Cambogia Advanced was developed with the TV doctor's strict criteria for the proper Garcinia Supplement.


MY THOUGHTS:

I wanted to try this because I wanted to lose some of the fat in my lower body area. It didn't do much for me in the first week of taking the supplement.  After the 2nd week, I only lost just a couple pounds and my jeans are noticeably looser than before.  To be honest, I didn't really lose much weight maybe because of my size (I'm short).  I'll have to see how the changes are after a longer time. However, I do feel more active in my day-to-day activities. The product might not work as effectively for everybody as results do vary for each person.


FEATURES & BENEFITS:
  • Safe, Effective, Convenient and All-Natural
  • 100% pure
  • No side effects
  • No Fillers and No Binders
  • No Artificial Ingredients
  • Gluten-free
  • Made in the USA
  • FDA Certified and cGMP Approved

SLENDER CLEANSE ADVANCED

Slender Cleanse Advanced is a 7-day all natural gentle and controllable method to break up and flush away POUNDS of unwanted toxins and build up from the walls of your colon and intestines.

This product is formulated to be taken on an occasional basis to help cleanse th colon and promote regularity. It is taken as a dietary supplement: 1 capsule twice daily 30 minutes before meals with a glass of water. As per the instructions, it is not recommended to take more than 7 days in a row.


MY THOUGHTS:

I also had the chance to try the Slender Cleanse Advanced. As mentioned, I haven't really lost weight, only a few pounds after a couple weeks. I think I just lost some of my body fat instead.  I occasionally workout using weights, so it's just muscle weight I gained. The cleanse is good and the energy is just what I needed. I see a lot of different reviews. Again, the results vary from person to person.


FEATURES & BENEFITS:
  • Reduce Bloat and Constipation
  • Increase Energy
  • Promotes Comfortable and Controllable Regularity
  • Naturally Detoxify
  • No Artificial Ingredients
  • Gluten-free
  • Made in the USA





Disclosure: I received the above mentioned product at no charge from the PR Firm/company in exchange for my review. The opinions expressed in my review are my own personal and honest thoughts. No other compensation was given. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Nerium Launches Optimera Day and Night Cream {Review}


Nerium International recently launched the all new Optimera skincare line and made its first appearance exclusively in Canada.


The new line, which includes both a Night Cream and a Day Cream. These are the only products on the market to include the exclusive new patented SAL-14 extract. SAL-14 extract, a synergistic combination of various botanicals including Bidens Pilosa and Aloe Barbandensis Leaf Juice, is produced from a cutting-edge plant cell duplication technology and is formulated to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores and aging/loose skin.

In addition to the signs of aging, Optimera also improves radiance, elasticity, and the smooth appearance of skin. Clinical trials performed on Optimera reveal that 93% of participants had improvement in the appearance of their wrinkles and 97% had an improvement in their skin radiance.

Day Cream


Night Cream



According to Marie Bertrand (Skin Scientist and founder of the Skin Science clinic in Calgary), "Optimera is absolutely unique in the skincare world. I haven't seen anything like it. With real science behind the products, they work on all aspects of skin aging to produce powerful results. With Optimera, there's no need to have dozens of different products to achieve younger looking skin."

My Experience:

Of course, we all want to look younger and have smoother skin. After a little over a week of trying this product, I noticed the fine lines near my eyes and cheeks have diminished. I had lots of pores so this product was perfect to help make them less visible. It's great for sensitive skin like mines. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family because it really worked and showed visible results.

BEFORE and AFTER

Features & Benefits:
  • helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • reduce discoloration
  • evens out skin texture
  • reduces pores
  • improves radiance and elasticity
  • paraben and gluten free

WHERE TO BUY: Optimera can be purchased online at www.neriumcanada.com. Become a Preferred Customer and save.
