Giving Gifts That Benefit The Planet – prAna

holly

 

This season I’m focusing on finding gifts for my lovely family that will encourage growth, happiness and peace.  That could be as literal as giving a beautiful Amaryllis or interpreted metaphorically as sharing a product that is good for our environment.  I was recently introduced to a clothing line that checks all the boxes, and you too can give gifts that benefit the planet when you chose from – prAna.

prana-logo

More than ever, people just like you and me are seeking ways to spread positivity in our country. One way to do that is to make sure every purchase you make and every gift you give has a positive impact on our planet.  I’ve discovered a great line of clothes that fit the bill –  prAna. The cool clothing line prAna offers organic, hemp, sustainable, and fair trade items so that consumers feel great about the things they wear and the items they give.

I decided to take my new Mariette Dress out on my recent Small Business Saturday shopping trip last weekend.

prana-shopping-2

 

I’m going through that “delightful” time in my life where I could break out in a sweat in the freezing cold. Argh. I was very curious how I would handle this material and, I’m very happy to report, that I felt very comfortable in this sweater dress.  Fabric consists of Organic cotton blend sweater knit, 70% Organic Cotton / 30% Acrylic.

Please check out their website – http://www.prana.com/ –  and see their cool designs.  When you find something to add to your cart do yourself a favor and save 15% off your entire order.  Use this Promo Code:  BLOGF16ANHA

When you get your new clothes share a pic!  I’d love to see what you chose!

 

(*Disclosure:  I was provided product in exchange for this review.  But honestly, I really love this clothing line!)

 



A Great Way To Save – Groupon Coupons!

(Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.)

The moon belongs to everyone, the best things in life are free“, sang Frank Sinatra (among many others) and that’s fantastic!  However, it’s very hard to wrap and very difficult to fit under a Christmas tree.  And so it goes, the search for the perfect gift. If your gift-giving list is long, I’ve discovered a great way to save on everything from toys, clothing, appliances – you name it!  It’s Groupon Coupons. Do you know about this? I didn’t! I’m so happy to learn about it, particularly for this time of year. Let’s check it out!

Groupon Coupons can help ease your Thanksgiving journeys by offering great discounts on hotels and travel.  Also, there are coupons for holiday decorating and food options.  A sure-to-please gift is a lovely bouquet (you don’t have to worry if it “fits”). From You Flowers has great deals right now. This would also be a very nice gift to give to yourself!

Something that most of us don’t think of, until something falls apart, is home maintenance. This can be tricky for those that either aren’t handy with tools, don’t have access to tools or aren’t physically able to handle the heavy lifting.  Angie’s List now offers FREE membership through Groupon Coupons. You can give the gift of a “Handy Man” this season.  That’s a pretty great gift!  Click here for your deal.

Holiday shopping just got a whole lot easier and better with this find. Check out Groupon Coupons and I’m sure you’ll find something wonderful for everyone on your list.  Happy Holidays!

Sam The Cat Decorates His Christmas Tree – Video

We had a cat adopt US over the Summer. I went out to the patio, sat down for breakfast and *boom* there are two green eyes staring at me from the end of the table.  I saw how incredibly thin he was and couldn’t resist feeding him. (Ms. Tender Heart here!) This little guy was so hungry that he ate 2 cans of food at a time. This eating habit brought about his name (courtesy of my husband) Two-can Sam. Get it? Toucan Sam?  From the Froot Loops cereal? 

After a visit to the vet we found no chip and no neighbors claimed him from “Lost Cat” postings.  Sam chose to stay on our patio, in our yard, and would never leave.  Sam wanted to be a part of our family and we accept.  (It’s taken a while with our oldest daughter but our youngest is SO happy!)  When the weather turned cold Sam decided to move from our patio to the inside of our house.

We discover more about his personality as the days go by. He keeps to himself, yet also likes to know that we’re around.  So far he’s very, very quiet. While we were decorating the Christmas Tree, he observed from the recliner, resting on his cozy blanket.  The next day I brought a little tree next to his food dish.  Below you’ll see how he chose to decorate his little tree, with a toy mouse.  Sweet Sam.

It’s All About Love – Please Contribute To Toys For Tots This Season

jcc

 

Please take a moment and contribute to the “It’s All About Love” Toys For Tots online campaign at www.toysfortotsdrive.com .  This campaign is working to raise monetary contributions to support the annual toy drive.  As a thank you gift, those donating $10.00 will receive a digital copy of J.C. Lee’s (daughter of Stan Lee -Marvel Comics fame) ebook “It’s All About Love – The Lee Family,” a family photo album featuring never before seen home photographs.  It’s All About Love – Please Contribute To Toys For Tots This Season.

“We’re excited to participate in this wonderful campaign to support our Toys for Tots program,” said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, Vice President of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.  “While we receive many new, unwrapped toys for deserving youngsters, monetary contributions supplement our efforts and help support our program. It also helps us provide additional gifts for those ‘hard to buy for’ teens and pre-teens.  We are very grateful to J.C. and Stan Lee for their generosity and support of our 2015 campaign,” he added.

Since its founding in 1947, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program has collected over 494 million toys fulfilling the Christmas dreams of over 230 million less fortunate children. It has been supported by numerous celebrities including First Lady Michelle Obama.

“100% of the net proceeds raised from the online campaign will be used to support the Toys For Tots program,” said Alain Nguyen, “It’s All About Love” campaign chairman. “We would like to raise $1 million and are reaching out to the comic book community and general public for their participation.”

Contributing online is simple and easy and a great way to assist the Marine Corps Reserve in helping families give their children a memorable holiday.” Grein said.

Won’t you join me in taking a moment to donate to Toys For Tots?  ‘Tis the season!

 

ABOUT TOYS FOR TOTS

Holiday Gift For Our Military Families & A Cash Giveaway!

A great thing about the holiday season is the reminder to be grateful for what we have and to do what we can to help those in need.  ‘Tis the season of giving!  And in this theme, I am happy to participate in a giveaway that is not only giving to a very lucky participant, it is giving to men and women in uniform, who are serving our country and protecting our freedom around the world, deployed away from their little ones for long periods of time.

Holiday-Gift military families

Baby’s Brilliant wants to give those military parents an opportunity to connect with their babies and toddlers with their new series READ ALONG BOOKS.  Through this book series you can record your voice reading the book and your child will hear the story read to them by one of the most important people in their lives.  Here’s how it works:

  • Sign up for access to their site
  • Their first book will be available to choose from and a script of the story will be sent.
  • Parent will record their voice using the script and the memo feature on their phone (a short video intro and good-bye are also great to include).
  • Email them the recorded script.
  • Baby’s Brilliant will edit reader’s voice into the story and post it on a dedicated page on Baby’s Brilliant.

Once this is all completed, the child will be able to read the story and hear it narrated by their mom or dad who is far away, serving our country.

This will be done at absolutely NO CHARGE to military parents.

This is a way for all at Baby’s Brilliant to express their gratitude to all those serving our country.

Baby’s Brilliant is also happy to announce that they will be donating 10% of all their revenues for the month of December to St.Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In honor of this new Read Along Series, Baby’s Brilliant is giving away $500 to one lucky winner just before Christmas!

Holiday Gift Giving Suggestion: SOL Republic Tracks Headphones

Holiday Gift Giving button

I’ve never been a fan of ear buds and my youngest feels the same about putting things in her ears.  We’re enjoying a headset that is gentle on the ears and provides a clear, rich quality sound – SOL Republic Tracks.  With the holidays upon us one gift that is sure to make those that love to listen to music/podcasts, watch YouTube or concentrate at a Google+ Hangout giddy would be the gift of SOL Republic Tracks headphones.

Headphones By Sol Republic  - Tracks.  Superior sound. Perfect for the kid always on the go. Holiday Gift Giving Suggestion from Ann Again and again Reviews.

When you first place these headphones on you notice the pliable headband which is made of Flex Tech.  This material is bendable and feels soft on the head, a great feature for those that have sensory issues of things being too tight.  I found the sound to be clear with a smooth bass quality.

My youngest can actually concentrate better if she listens to music while studying, or writing a paper.  These SOL Republic Tracks headphones make it so she can plugin to the laptop and do her homework anytime.  We have a little house, and voices and laughter can carry, so it’s great that our family’s conversations won’t get in the way of homework getting done.

You can find SOL Republic Tracks headphones at Target, Walmart and Barnes & Noble.  To learn more about the features of SOL Republic Tracks headphones please visit their site through this link.

Happy Holidays from Ann at Ann Again and again Reviews!

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

The most famous reindeer of all, Rudolph is born with something very unique — a bright red nose that glows! But then, one cloudy Christmas Eve, Rudolph uses his nose to guide Santa’s sleigh through the fog, saving the day and proving that our differences are what make us special.

Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town follows the adventures of toymaker Kris Kringle as he sets outs on a journey to bring toys to the children of Sombertown, and in time, becomes Santa Claus — explaining how many favorite Christmas traditions came to be and demonstrating the importance of sharing joy with others.

While looking for something special I’ve found the site Julip.com. This site features work by artists that share their creations with step-by-step instructions on how to re-create (or tweek if you like) something with your own hands to love, cherish, give or keep. What ever makes you happy. Recently I found two projects that I can’t wait to get started on. This paper pumpkin will be a sweet addition to our Thanksgiving centerpiece:

There’s also beautiful images and instructions to make your own Typography Cookies. These look so cool! The fonts are beautiful and there’s so many ways to use these crafty cookies. Now that I’ve found Julip.com this season should produce some fun creations.

Wonderful Gift Idea - Personalized Chicken Soup For The Soul - Ann Again and again Reviews

Blurb’s Chicken Soup For Your Soul!
Books are a wonderful gift idea. You’re providing a new journey, perhaps visual delights, or personal insight. As Gregory Maguire says “Books fall open, you fall in”. However, it can be really hard buying books for people as gifts. After all, you never know just which books they already have. And then when you do find the right book and give it to them, how do you make it really personal? Put in a book plate? Write an inscription? How do you make the whole thing totally them?

These personalized “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books are one really great way to do it. Not only do you get to choose from five different story themes (from “Christmas Stories” to “Giving thanks”), you can personalize it in ways you just can’t with a conventional book. As the title suggests, these are stories meant to comfort and heal.

Your custom made “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book will truly be a book for them because the book is printed with their name on the cover, as the recipient. And it’s truly from you because your name is printed on the cover as the giver. You can even include an inscription inside the book and on the back cover. Add a photo to the back as well!

There are other nice options to choose from, like the type of cover you’d like and the type of paper. It takes just about five minutes to make it a truly custom book. And, chances are, it’s something they’ll love forever. A 60-page book starts at just $24.95. (Psst… discount code – see below!)

There’s a quick video here: Chicken Soup for the Soul that shows you how to fill in all the info using a simple online tool. The books are all done by Blurb, so you know the quality is going to be great.

Get started here: Blurb’s Chicken Soup for the Soul Book

 

Surprise!! Here Is A Discount Code Valid Until 11/21/13! Save 25% when you spend $50 or more on print books with code: SAVING

Have fun creating your personal books! :->

The Polar Express Is Coming To The Mt. Hood Railroad – All Aboard!

Polar Express Mt. Hood Railroad - Ann Again and again Reviews


Polar Express Mt. Hood Railroad - Ann Again and again Reviews

Hello my fellow Oregonians!  And All Aboard! THE POLAR EXPRESS comes to life this holiday season as the Mt Hood Railroad rolls out of the station bound for the “North Pole!” Come early and climb aboard with your family to cozy-up and enjoy our festively-decorated vintage train cars. Dancing chefs deliver hot chocolate and a cookie to each guest to savor while music from the Polar Express movie plays en route to the North Pole. Make sure to have your tickets handy, because your conductor will be by shortly to punch each child’s ticket.

 

Before arriving at the North Pole, the iconic book, The Polar Express is read as your Chef turns the pages to share the beautiful illustrations in the original book. With the station far away, THE POLAR EXPRESS magically arrives at the outskirts of Santa’s North Pole village, where Santa Claus himself and his elves joyously welcome the train! As you stay comfortably settled and warm in your seat, Santa and his helper elf board the train! During the return trip, Santa will greet each child with his signature holiday spirit and the first gift of Christmas: a bell cut from his sleigh. It is said that only children and those who still believe can actually hear the bell ring. Join in the singing as your Chef or Conductor lead Christmas caroling on the 30-minute return trip.

For those wanting the magic to last or to do a little Christmas shopping, visit our gift shop in the station for special POLAR EXPRESS gifts and merchandise. Oh, one last thing, children are encouraged to wear their PJ’s; adults who still believe have been known to wear them, too! So, are you coming? All Aboard!

Dates and Times:

Nov 9-10, 16-17, 22-24, 27, 29-30

Dec 1, 4-8, 11-15, 18-22, 26-29

A holiday tradition of mine is visiting See’s Candy and finding some special treats for my family.  Actually, a part of my mall shopping experience any time of the year includes a visit to See’s Candy!  This goes back generations for me.  My grandmother Ruth enjoyed what See’s calls “pastels” and my mother loves their chocolate covered almonds. Now I get to share this delicious tradition with my daughters.  Every time I say I’m visiting the mall, and ask if they want to go with me, they ask “Can we visit See’s”  But of course!

I found some very cute holiday gift boxes that I know my girls are going to love!

Winter Wonderland Box:  Scotchmallow®, Butterscotch Squares and Milk Chocolate Foil Balls are nestled inside for a sweet gift. 

Polar Bear Box:  Sugar Sticks, Milk Chocolate Foil Balls, Lollypops and Chocolate Santa’s. Each item is individually wrapped to ensure freshness. 
The illustrations are so cute and with the price under $7.00 these are a wonderful treat for the little ones in your family, or any one that loves delicious chocolates.
