Love shopping online and getting great deals? Check out shopnbc.com!

invictamens invicta womens

I recently learned about ShopNBC.com, a site selling everything from jewelry to computers and electronics.  They are the same great products you’ll see sold on tv and of course you can still shop from home- my favorite feature of online shops!

I took a good look at the watches available and was really struck by the Invicta watches.  The selection available is geared mainly toward men, but you’ll find some really nice woman’s watches as well.  What stood out right away for me was the vibrant colors!  Take a look above at one of the gorgeous men’s watches (top) and one of the beautiful women’s watches (bottom), both with eye-catching blue faces and accents.  And the best part?  Prices are well below retail.  In some cases, at a great clearance price.  The women’s watch above is on clearance at more than 50% off the already discounted price!

I also love that the site offers honest consumer reviews of the products.  This is something I look for, and usually read thoroughly, before buying most items.  Take a look around and check it out for yourself!

Win a No-Touch Hand Soap System and Refill from Lysol!

HTNT System

LYSOL® Helps Protect Families from Germy Soap Pumps with No-Touch Hand Soap System

Innovative new tool helps stop the spread of germs during an unpredictable cold & flu season

LYSOL®, the number one surface disinfectant brand recommended by pediatricians, has expanded its fight against germs into personal care with the introduction of the No-Touch Hand Soap System – a revolutionary way to help keep hands healthy.  For use in the kitchen or bathroom, it helps stop the spread of germs by automatically sensing hands and dispensing antibacterial soap that kills 99.9% of bacteria, including E.coli, MRSA and Strep.  The hand soaps are also enriched with moisturizing ingredients and available in three fresh scents. With the LYSOL® No-Touch Hand Soap System, families never have to touch a germy soap pump again.

The entire family should follow these CDC-recommended steps:

· Wet hands with clean running water and apply soap.  Use warm water if it is available.

· Rub hands together to make lather and scrub all surfaces, including underneath the nails and back of the hands.

· Continue rubbing hands for 20 seconds, long enough to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice.

· Rinse hands well under running water.

· Dry hands using a paper towel or air dryer.  If possible, use a paper towel to turn off the faucet.

aden + anais proudly sponsors and raises awareness for the CJ Foundation

With the coldest of the winter months now upon us, parents and caregivers are more likely to crank the heating and reach for plush, thick blankets to keep their babies warm. Infants who are overdressed or covered in heavy blankets or many blankets are at higher risk for SIDS.  It is very important for babies to be dressed lightly and comfortably to avoid overheating. The CJ Foundation recommends the use of wearable blankets and sleep-sacks in place of blankets to keep infants warm while sleeping.

aden + anais®, creator of the original muslin swaddling blanket and unique muslin cotton sleeping bags, is proudly sponsoring the CJ Foundation for SIDS and their continuing efforts to educate parents about the importance of not over-bundling and over-heating their infants. Over 2,000 babies in the United States still die of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) each year, and overheating is a leading risk factor. 

In an effort to support the CJ Foundation for SIDS’ mission, aden + anais® began sponsoring the foundation in October 2009 during SIDS Awareness Month. Each aden + anais® product is made of 100% breathable muslin cotton, which allows baby’s body temperature to adjust naturally, reducing the risk of overheating.

The CJ Foundation recently launched its Sleep in Safety, Grow in Style (SSGS) campaign to help educate parents about the importance of designing safe sleeping environments for babies. aden + anais® is working to help the CJ Foundation inform parents of the many ways they can keep their baby safe. While over-heating is one risk-factor for SIDS, SSGS and aden + anais® seek to educate parents about this and the other risk-reducing, precautionary practices:

  • Consider the use of fans to increases ventilation
  • Room temperature should be comfortable for a lightly-clothed adult, approximately 61-67 degree Fahrenheit
  • Cribs should be totally free of all loose blankets, stuffed animals and crib bumpers
  • Lay baby to sleep in an improved crib, on a firm mattress; do not let the baby sleep on soft things, like a couch, pillow, sheepskin, foam pad or waterbed
  • No smoking when pregnant or near baby
  • If possible, breastfeed baby
  • Offer a pacifier at bedtime
  • Co-sleeping should be in the same room but not the same bed or other sleep surface as parents

For more information on aden + anais’® sponsorship of the CJ Foundation, please contact Kristina Junger-Godfrey at Kristina@kjunger.com or 949.720.7062.
