Happy Birthday BerryMorins Bits & Tips Giveaway - $25 Schwans Gift Card

The power of word of mouth is how I discovered Schwans over 10 years ago. One of my online buddies was raving about their Beef Tips with Gravy and asked me if I had ever had them. No, I hadn't but I was interested in seeing if they deliver in my area of San Diego. Which they did!

Over the years, we've tried the Beef Tips with Gravy and many of their other products. These days, my order usually consist of the Southern Biscuits, Frozen Strawberries, Marinated Salmon and Marcus' favorite...Confetti Ice Cream!

So, since this is our birthday and I love giving away family favorite items, I thought I would offer a $25 Schwans Gift Card!

Here's the rules: Just leave a comment on this post of an item that you've tried or would like to try till May 31st, Tuesday 7pm PST for a chance to win. It's that easy. Oh, I do recommend that you also verify that Schwans delivers in your area.

Alice Made Another Delivery This Month

I highly recommend for those of us that live carless!

This month, I stocked up on toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, and white brightner!

I was able to use a coupon towards the Tide detergent. And there was even a free gift...Power Aid Strawberry Water. Hubby gives it thumps up!

I Love Small Scrapbooks! Severe Chronic Pain Sufferer

When I started suffering from nerve damage,some loss of motion and severe pain 11 years ago I didn't want to stop scrap booking. I love scrap booking!

While doing some online surfing, I came across an article about ways of adapting your hobbies to your physical limitations. I decided to give the smaller scrapbooks a try!

I usually buy scrap booking kits. The papers will be cut to the right size; cutting down on the need to use scissors.

The autumn theme renewal scrapbook was purchased from an Etsy store, 2 years ago. I emailed the store owner a photo of my bouquet and asked her to incorporate the colors into this paper bag scrapbook.

When it arrived I discovered not only did it surpass my expectations but the pages were already included places for journaling. All I had to do was select photos, crop and add to the pages. Loved it!

This book was a kit purchased from QVC many years ago.

Creating a Scrapbook - My Lastest Scrapbook Kit!

I found this scrapbooking kit at Big Lots a few weeks, for $3.
This kit comes with 2 rings, 2 cardboard pieces with 2 holes, decorative papers and embellishments!
I was able to create this small scrapbook, which I'm dedicating to my favorite things.

I Love You Candy Nail Polish Color

Summer is Coming So Let's Keep It Short!

My hair is finally starting to grow out these days but I've decided to leave natural short afro. Summers in Las Vegas are brutal. And I've grown comfortable with this look.

And when I need a change I just grab a wig from the closet, put it on and head out the door!

Wash, Rinse and Fluff - Caring for My Wig!

I washed my wig for the first time last night. It was 5 mins of soaking in the cold water and shampoo, rinse, then conditioner. Then my wig dried overnight on this wig stand. This morning she just need a spritz of Luster spray and fluff. Now, she's ready to wear!

ps I did use synthetic wig care products

Why Can't the Nail Polish Last Longer?

I think my nail polish tops out at 3 days. I wish scientist could come up with a more durable nail polish.

Thank You Kiana For A Great Mother's Day!

I was surprised and overwhelmed to hear from Kiana, on Mother's Day!

She wanted to wish me a Happy Mother's Day!

Thank you Kidlet!
