    Win the ultimate summer gift: Personalized iPhone covers from The Case Studio

    December may be the height of the holiday gift-giving season, but summer features a fair share of gifting occasions of its own. To wit: Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduations, weddings, and more.

    Wouldn't it be great if there were one gift that would be appropriately pleasing for each of those occasions? I recently had the opportunity to try for free a product that's exactly that—the perfect gift for summer gifting of nearly any sort.

    The Case Studio offered me the chance to try out for free a fully customized iPhone case, and this thing is awesome! It's truly a super gift for smartphone-carrying grandmothers and others for Mother's Day, as well as grads and dads, even wedding attendants who deserve tokens of gratitude for their participation in a couple's big day.

    The Case Studio makes it easy, fast, and fun to personalize iPhone cases—ipods, androids, and tablets, too—with memorable photos...

    Tasty and nutritious: New Kellogg's Raisin Bran with Cranberries (giveaway)

    Updated on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 by Registered CommenterLisa Carpenter

    This giveaway sponsored by Kellogg Company.

    Raisin Bran with Cranberries

    Kellogg's Raisin Bran has been given a new twist: cranberries! Added right along with the raisins. It's no longer "two scoops of raisins in every box," it's one scoop of raisins and one scoop of cranberries that make up new Kellogg's Raisin Bran with Cranberries.

    I tried it and loved it. I've always enjoyed Raisin Bran, but the addition of dried cranberries (a favorite snack of mine) makes it truly delicious! I munched and munched...

    Facial Smoothies smooth away the wrinkles

    Last time I visited my grandsons, my six-year-old grandson and I were working on a craft project when he stopped cold, looked me in the eye, and said, "Why do you have an A on your face, Gramma?" Confused, I asked what he meant. He then used his index finger to outline the A made by intersecting wrinkles between my eyes.

    My grandson's honesty and observational skills made me realize I'd been lax in my use of duct tape—not for taping the kid's mouth shut but for eliminating my wrinkles. See, strategically placed pieces of duct tape had been my go-to wrinkle remover for years. I'd wear it to bed, peel it off in the morning then be wrinkle free much of the day. But, I'd gotten lazy and hadn't taped myself up in a while.

    I was considering returning to the regimen just when I was approached to try out Facial Smoothies Wrinkle Removal Strips.
