Mommcupation Bububibi Giveaway

Between last week's events and remembering just why I don't enter the referral contests... I've had a hard time even wanting to look for giveaways lately. But... I found one I'm excited about! Unfortunatley it ends tonight. Eek!

Bububibi. We have one of our own and I love it... So when I saw that The Mommcupation is giving away one (plus wetbag and liners) I was too excited about entering. Like I said, it ends tonight... 11pm PST. So if you want to enter I'd suggest hurrying :-)

Facebook Mommy Breastfeeds Book Giveaway

I don't do many Facebook referral giveaways... but I found one today that I just had to enter.

I think this is the cutest book, from what I've seen of it anyway and it would be perfect in my home. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get a copy yet.  So them giving away a free copy to the person with the most referrals by July 2nd was just something I had to shoot for.

So... I would really appreciate it if you'd like them and leave a note that you're a new fan/I sent you (yes the comment is necessary).  Feel free to jump in and refer friends of your own and try to win it for yourself. Believe me I don't mind at all lol. Good luck!

One Smiling Monkey - Thirsties Hemp

I'll admit I'm waiting a bit impatiently for One Smiling Monkey to hit their 2500 fan mark on FB because they're doing a huge giveaway. I've been checking in as often as I can to see where they're at... and today I saw this giveaway already up (not part of the big one, but makes me happy anyway).

One Smiling Monkey is giving away a Thirsties Hemp Prefold and a Duo Wrap Cover.  I absolutely adore hemp in diapers... so far only have it in inserts, but the thought of trying a hemp prefold... I can't even tell you how much I want to try one. The giveaway ends July 11 at 3 PST.

Swiffer 360 Review

Disclaimer: I was not paid to do this review... I did receive a free Swiffer 360, but not connected to this blog... It was part of a Facebook special they did in May.

I looked forward to this coming in the mail for weeks. I'm not even kidding... There are several things I really do like about it, and I'm very grateful for it since it was free... but at the same time it wasn't quite what I hoped it would be.

This is so not their fault, just saying... but my first reaction was disappointment that it was in the condition it was when it arrived.  I took this after trying to reshape the package some.

This wouldn't happen buying it in a store... and it still works, but it did make the duster oddly shaped when it came out. I don't know if that affected how well it worked or not. I'm assuming not, but mention it just in case.

I broke it out and used it pretty much right away... is why I'm able to write this now.  Like I said, I was excited about it.  The look of it wasn't great, but that doesn't always mean anything. It does work. It works pretty well.  I used it on my blinds (very hard to dust) and it got most of it off.  Yay.

End result:

Yeah... yuck. There is obviously no way I can reuse this at all... Which from Swiffer I should have known... I don't know of anything they make that is reusable.  I guess I was just hoping I would get a little more use out of it before it was trash.

So it does work pretty well... and if you like the "convenience" of having products you can just toss then it would be a good fit. Or if you need to eliminate dust with as little as possible contact. I can't see myself buying another... but it did show me that I do want a real duster, I see potential there :-)
