Giveaway Linkys

My Dear Friends,

If you have a giveaway you'd like to advertise, but didn't really know how or where....here's a great list of giveaway linkys to help!  You can also find this list on the "Giveaway Linkys" page at the top of my blog, right under the header!  Enjoy!


250 Follower Powermat Review & Giveaway!

My Dear Friends,

I hit 250 followers today!  Thank you all for reading my little blog!  In honor of this milestone, we'll have a giveaway!  Enter today!!

Powermat wants to simplify your life by allowing you to charge your wireless devices all in one place.  I hate having cords laying around.  They junk up the room they are in, they take up valuable plug in space - all in all a pain! 

You might even be using a power strip to charge multiple devices, and that can get dangerous having all those things plugged in to one little outlet!  

Kiss those cords goodbye!  When you enable your device with a Powermat receiver you’re able to simply drop the gadget on top of the mat and charge it just like that! How awesome is that?

The Home and Office Mat is what I have and it works great in cleaning up your desk!   (I love things that help me organize!
The Home & Office Mat:
Home & Office Mat"This amazing charging solution simultaneously charges up to three POWERMAT ENABLED devices (plus one USB power port). Works with all Powermat Receivers. Adjustable sound and light indications give feedback that charging is occurring while a small magnetic pull ensures perfect alignment and optimal charging efficiency."

If you or your family do a lot of traveling you might want to consider purchasing their Portable Powermat as well.  It offers the same contents as above except the mat is split into 3 three sections that conveniently fold up for easy storage and portability.  

You can view their whole list of amazing products here, and also buy them on their website.  Since Christmas is approaching fast, this would make a great gift for those electronics-loving friends!

Connect with Powermat through their Facebook, Twitter or YouTube!

There's more!  One lucky FITF reader will win their very own Powermat Home and Office Mat!

Here's How:
1. Follow FITF on GFC!
2. Follow FITF on Twitter or Facebook! (links are in the top left corner)
3. Follow Powermat on Facebook!
4. Follow Powermat on Twitter!

Contest is open to US residents only and ends on 11/19/10!

*Powermat provided me product to review for free.  No monetary compensation was given and these opinions are my own.

Yantra Mat - Help Yourself!

My Dear Friends,

The benefits to the Yantra Mat are substantial.  I've only had mine for about a week and I feel so much better already.  The Yantra Mat helps with fatigue, stress, headaches, tension and even helps you sleep better.

What happens is when you lay on the mat, 8,820 acupressure points increase your blood flow, which will improve circulation.  Additionally, you will begin to feel more relaxed after just a few minutes and have a stronger focus and sense of clarity.

Studies have shown that acupressure may even induce the release of endorphins and oxytocin, the body’s own pain-relieving and happiness hormones. And there is some evidence that it increases metabolism as well.

Here are some more detailed instructions on how to use the mat properly, from the Yantra Mat website:

To Begin:

Carefully lie down on your Yantra Mat. Distribute your weight evenly over the contact points. For the first few minutes, you will likely experience discomfort; this will subside. Breathe deeply and remain still.
Certain conditions can make our skin more sensitive. The Yantra Mat should not feel painful. If it does hurt, place a thin sheet between your body and the mat. After a period of time, try using the Yantra Mat without a protective layer.

Days 1-4

We recommend about 10 minutes of use. You'll recognize the Yantra Mat’s effects right away, but they may develop once you start using the mat more frequently. Some people fall asleep on the mat. Others get an energy boost immediately after use.

Days 5-14

We recommend about 20 minutes of use, preferably at bedtime. If you fall asleep, that’s okay. Avoid watching the clock (set an alarm if you must). The most important thing is to relax. It doesn’t matter if your total time on the mat is more than 20 minutes. Remove the mat when you wake up and go back to sleep. Eventually, you’ll feel that you awake more refreshed and energized for the day ahead.

After 14 days

By this time, you will have learned a lot about the Yantra Mat and its effects on your body/mind. Try 20-40 minutes, or more. You can lie on the mat as long as you like. We suggest using the mat daily, although some people use it less often.

Getting Started
As you've read, you can help yourself feel better by just using the Yantra Mat once a day or so.  The mat offers a "hurts so good" feeling, which feels like laying on a prickly surface, but one that relaxes at the same time.  It was reminiscent of a deep tissue massage, and I honestly felt so much better after each use.  

My favorite way to use the mat is to lay on the floor, rolling out the mat and laying where my butt touches the bottom of the mat and the top of the mat ends at my shoulders.  I put a small pillow under my head and then I start to relax.  Sometimes I even forget I'm using the mat, I'm just that comfortable!

You can get a Yantra Mat directly from their website for only $49, and it comes with a free storage/carrying case!  You can choose from purple, green or black.  Other options include the Yantra Kit which contains a belt, pillow and rings for your fingers!

Don't forget to connect with Yantra Mat via Twitter or Facebook!

Upcoming Review!

My Dear Friends,

I'm going to review the OIA Wardrobe Center for CSN Stores

I can't wait to get organized using this baby!  

I'm inspired by Taylor at Mary Janes & Galoshes, who used hers for a sewing closet, to make this my craft closet! 

I have craft stuff coming out of EVERYWHERE so I'm excited to get it all organized in one place!

The Look For Less (Mad Men - Peggy Olsen)

My Dear Friends,

I think my least favorite Mad Men style has to be Peggy.  I really don't think she's come into her own yet, but she has come a long way fashion-wise since Season 1.  She's just not quite there yet.  She's this woman of power, and yet she doesn't dress like it.  Yet.  Some of you out there might be huge fans of Peggy's style, so here are some ways to get her look for less.

Peggy really likes modest, sensible clothes.  Pleated skirts, bows, cutesy dresses, cardigans, gloves, low heels.  Here's an updated Peggy Olsen look.

These cardigans are all from Forever 21 and are less than $23 each.

These dresses are all from Charlotte Russe and are all less than $28 each!

These shoes are all from Charlotte Russe and are all $10 each!
