New Year’s Eve Resolution Reset Blog App Review & Giveaway

Did you make any New Year's Resolutions this year?!?

Most importantly, did you keep them??

I didn't make any.  Why? Because I  knew that I would not keep them for very long.  I'm doing my best to better myself year round, so I tend to not make it a resolution or I know that it probably does not have a chance of happening.

Next question (yes I know, Karen, Karen, you are asking to many questions for a Thursday)!!

Have you seen the previews for the Warner Bros movie New Year's Eve, a comedy that stars: Ashton Kutcher, Michelle Pfeiffer,  Katherine Heigl, Sofia Vergara, Hilary Swank, Sarah Jessica Parker, Zac Efron, Jon Bon Jovi, and Josh Duhamel!  Or, have you already seen the movie in theaters? How did you like it? Would you recommend it to a friend?

I have yet to see it, and even though I am not a huge Ashton Kutcher fan, I want to see this movie.  Mainly because I love comedies.  The funnier the better.

I have teamed up with my friends at Partner's Hub again and am bringing you a chance to win your own DVD copy of this movie (which is being released on DVD and Blu-ray on May 1, 2012) just by checking out the New Year's Eve Resolution Reset Blog App and posting your answers.

I received no compensation or product for my post.  Sponsor will mail the prize out to the winner.  No P.O. Boxes please as the sponsor uses FedEx.  Giveaway will end on: May 11, 2012 @ 11:59 p.m. est.  Please make sure you follow the rules for the mandatory entry (leaving a blog comment) or your entry will be DQ'd.  Also, please make sure I have a way to contact you as you will only have 48 hours to respond (sponsor needs info within a couple of days of end of giveaway).

I would like to thank Partner's Hub for again allowing me to host one of their fabulous quizzes and giveaways.

Udderly Smooth Product Review and Giveaway

My name is Karen and I have rough skin.  My elbows.  My knees.  The back of my legs.  My toes.  My feet.  Yes, rough, dry skin.  The weather this year has made it much worse then what it would normally be.  So, while I was contemplating on what product to try next to help with the drying and the itchiness I was contacted by Linda at Udderly Smooth to do a product review.

Of course I jumped right at it.  I have heard of people talking about Udderly Smooth and had never tried the product. 

So does the name trip you up? Yes, Udderly Smooth was created to be used on dairy cows.  I mean if anyone or thing is going to have some chapped skin, those poor dairy cows will from have their teats pulled and suctioned on by machines on a daily basis to get milk. 

I was sent numerous products to try.

From the awesome foot cream:

To some Vitamin E Cream and the Udder Cream:

I have to tell you that you will love these products.  To start with the creams are not greasy in anyway and are easy to rub in.  My feet felt so wonderful and after one application,  my heels felt a lot smoother than what they were. 

The products are lightly scented and do smell wonderful (at least I think so).  This weather has been rough this year with it going from warm to cold to warm to cold and these products have helped my hands out A LOT, especially the Vitamin E Cream. I tend to get little water blisters and cracking skin when it starts to get warm and humid and when I noticed that I was getting those itchy water blisters I just started using the products a couple of times a day and my hands and fingers were smooth again. 

Though I love the Vitamin E Cream, I would have to say that I love the Foot Cream the most. It made my feet feel pampered and smooth. 

I think that you will love these products as well!

The products are also reasonably priced  and you can go right to their website and place an order, very easy to do. 

The wonderful folks at Udderly Smooth also offered to give away a product or two to one of my readers and you will be able to enter below.

This giveaway will end on May 4, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. est and is open to residents of the USA who are 18+. All words (except quoted text) are my own, I received no monetary compensation for this product review, however, I did receive a product to test.
