Oh, yes. It’s time. Time for the annual Mother’s Day Giveaway where I have lots of prizes (12 winners!), Mother’s Day gift ideas, and discounts…JUST FOR YOU!
So, pull up a seat, grab some Crystal Light, and check out the good stuff…Mother’s Day is right around the corner…
If you’re a regular on my blog, you are probably familiar with Malouf Fine Linens. I blab about them all the time, and they’re always up for participating in my giveaways…which is awesome, cause everyone wants to win their stuff! Plus, they give my readers killer-discounts (see below.) AND…I love them. After trying nearly everything they make, I think I have zeroed in on my favorite pillow, the Zoned Dough, Low Loft (of course, the priciest ones.) It’s got the whole memory foam thing going on, but it’s way softer. If you imagine laying on a wad of bread dough, and your head slowing sinking in…it’s kinda like that, except better, and its low in carbs, in case you happen to eat it, while dreaming of bread dough. My husband loves the Convolution, because it’s a little lighter and fluffier. For movies, we like propping up with the high loft Talalay Latex. It’s funny how there are endless opinions and options, when it comes to pillows! I love trying them all. I also love their sheets and mattress protectors, I keep ordering more and more. I actually gave their pillows to my relatives for Christmas. They were a big hit! 🙂 I’m practically a Malouf Fine Linens connoisseur (I just had to look that word up to spell it correctly.) Anyway, women love luxury bedding, so I’m thinking it’s a great Mother’s Day idea, especially considering the mega-discount! I may just have to order some more, too!
Malouf Fine Linens is offering the winner TWO of their most popular pillows, the Convolution, with a choice of King or Standard size (valued at $160 bucks!) Everyone else can receive a hello-whopping 50% discount on the purchase! Just enter the code OneSheTwoShe at checkout. This offer is valid until June 1st, 2012.
I have an entire drawer stuffed full of swimsuits, and at least half of them are from Hapari. I’m the kind of gal that wears a swimsuit because, well…I’m going swimming. I’m chasing after my kids, whipping together PB&Js on the beach, changing diapers while trying to keep sand out, and building sandcastles. I like to look stylish, but I don’t feel the need to ‘let it all hang out,’ if ya know what I mean. And, THAT is why I love so many of Hapari’s swimsuits. They make it easy to look hot, and still be stylish. Thank you, thank you. Plus, they have put a lot of thought into women’s ‘trouble zones,’ and have specifically designed their swimsuits to help you feel more confident while wearing them. I so appreciate that! We could all use another swimsuit…kinda like shoes…so, why not give one for Mother’s Day, or even a gift certificate, then Mom can pick her own. Summer is right around the corner!
Hapari Swimwear is offering the winner $85 dollars to spend in their shop on a new swimsuit!
Prairie Creations holds a special place in my heart. Why? Because 3 years ago, I blogged about their awesome necklaces, and how I really wanted one. That was the FIRST POST I ever wrote on this blog!

If you ever come to Utah, you have to visit Historic 25th street in downtown Ogden. It’s one of those places where you gather up your girlfriends and spend an afternoon eating, visiting the Farmer’s Market, and checking out the shops. It’s one of my favorite places! The buzz is everywhere about 25th Street’s newest shop, The Imaging Depot. This HUGE, technology and customer service driven, modern shop is every photographer’s dream…from professional all the way down to I-barely-know-what-I’m-doing-with-this-camera. At first, I was like, “eh, another printing shop with camera equipment,” until I walked inside. There were photography classes going on, customers printing their own pictures, camera equipment everywhere, and professional employees helping people create, at every turn. There’s printing being done on metal, slate, slap bracelets, canvas, wallpaper, you name it. Things I had never heard of! The photo books were gorgeous, a zillion times nicer than the Shutterfly one’s I’ve made. The paper quality was top of the line, and all the options on bindings and layouts really caught my attention. Another bonus to printing with The Imaging Depot is that they’re a pro-lab, they’ll personally color correct your photos for you, even when you use their online service. So, you don’t get your finished product with poor looking photos. Something I’m personally excited about is their photography and photoshop classes, which heaven knows I need. Really, they’re something for everyone…especially for Mom. So, head on down there, or visit their shop online, and they’ll take good care of you!
The Imaging Depot is offering the winner a 20 x 30 custom photo canvas wrap, valued at $136 dollars, plus free shipping! Everyone else can receive 20% off printing services or photo gifts. Just enter the online code “orsoshesays” at checkout, or mention “Or so she says…” discount in the store. This offer expires May 12, 2012, the day before Mother’s Day, so get crackin! Also, take note of their current sale, 100 pre-paid 12×12 scrapbook pages for just $1.39 each.
I love supporting Etsy sellers! So many of them are stay-at-home mothers, who are trying to earn a few bucks on the side. I know that lots of us that can relate to that. Maria, owner of one of my favorite shops, Mama’s a Princess Too, is so adorable. Everything she creates is super feminine and vintage inspired. She packages everything so they’re ready-to-give, and the cute poem she attaches adds the perfect touch. I have a whole pile of her handmade cards…and they’re hard to give away, they’re too pretty! But, really…they’re a perfect card to write your mom a love note. Or, even give her a whole stack of them, with a custom address stamp, and pen, so she can write her own. We could all write a few more sweet notes and ‘Thank You’ cards, right? Wrap one of her custom hair bows around the package, and you’re set. Mom will love you! …maybe, she’ll even send you a ‘Thank You’ card, if you’re lucky. 🙂 You will also find darling items for the baby, in the shop, as well…tutus, hair bows…check it out! And, be sure to take advantage of the discount (see below).
Mama’s a Princess Too is offering the winner $75 dollars of in-store credit! Everyone else can receive 20% off their purchase! Just enter promo code 4MOMMAS2 at checkout. This offer expires May 13, 2012.
I had the pleasure of visiting Wasatch Crossfit (Layton, UT), last week, for a personal training session and tour. It was awesome…and, I was way sore the next day. Have you tried crossfit? I love it, because even though it’s hard…you’re really pushing yourself and trying to do things quickly, the workout is over before you know it. You might do a difficult 20 minute workout, but it will be far more beneficial than an hour long standard workout. Michaela (the trainer I met with) was perfect for me. We went through a series of exercises and I realized I had been doing nearly all of them wrong! She showed me simple adjustments that would significantly increase the effectiveness of the exercise, such as my sit-ups, push-ups, squats, and so on. The facility was huge, and dedicated to crossfit. There were several classes going on, filled with men and women of all different ages, shapes, and sizes. I even saw a lady who looked about 8 months pregnant! Me…8 months preggo…moaning and groaning on the couch. If I lived a little bit closer, I swear I would be there at least a couple times a week. If you’re interested in their classes, check out the web site. There’s boot camp, crossfit for kids, Olympic weightlifting, and even a FREE class every Saturday morning at 10. Another thing I loved about Wasatch Crossfit, is that it was filled with mostly women. Not that there’s anything wrong with men…we love them, right? But, working out with a bunch of other women, just feels a little more comfortable. For me, at least! Anyway, a personal training or nutrition package or a membership to Wasatch Crossfit, would be a great Mother’s Day gift for the mom who is wanting to get in shape, lose weight, gain endurance, or whatever their fitness needs may be.
Wasatch Crossfit is offering the winner a 6 week nutrition program, valued at $169 dollars! This will include a pre/post meeting to measure body fat, body composition goals, the development of a nutrition plan, weekly food journal and feedback. People typically lose 10-20+ lbs and 2-5% + body fat during 6 weeks. Another winner will win a one time nutrition consultation via email. Everyone else can receive $25 dollars off their personal training session with Michaela. Just mention this giveaway discount when scheduling ([email protected]). This offer is valid until May 30, 2012. Also, don’t forget that anyone can come to the Saturday at 10 class for FREE!
