  • Zeeberry – Designer Jewelry! Win A $50 Gift Card And Discount Code Too!
    ShareCONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Paige! I have a love-hate relationship with jewelry. I love buying it (mostly with not my money) but don’t enjoy wearing it. I can hear you saying “What?”.

  • Pledge, Trusted From Back Then! (Giveaway)
    ShareCONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Sheila! There are many products that are symbolic in the USA that I cannot claim affinity to growing up, since I grew up in South Africa. Pledge is not one of them. My mom loved furniture, good furniture. In fact she loved ensuring that all furniture was made from imbuia. I personally did not like the darkness of it and hated more that...

I love...

  • Fresh Produce – Clothes You Would Wear To Impress Your Girlfriend (Giveaway)!
    ShareCONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Susan! Something which many guys delude themselves into believing is that we dress for to impress guys.

  • Toy Story 3 (Giveaway)
    ShareContest Closed! Congratulations Corina Toy Story was such a hit that when Toy Story 2 came out it was a tall act to follow. Apparently it did not disappoint.  But when Toy Story 3 was announced, one might have been forgiven for assuming that maybe they were pushing it. Trilogies are hard. Good ones even harder. Somehow if they disappoint then they kind of mess the...
