Got the code?

Are you one of those people who before you buy anything go online for a code to either get free shipping or at least 10% off?  Well, I am with you.  I recently paid $70 for an item that was $178...using codes for free shipping, 25% off and then I threw in some gift cards I the bargains.

One of my customers said she loves to get all her codes.  Check them out, I am sure there is at least one store there you shop in.  I also belong to where I received (after the above purchase) 8% back.

Still not convinced?  Take a look at the codes below for Avon - starting today - and then use them in my store at

How will you save your family?

Going away this summer?  To the Caribbean ... to the beach house ... on a cruise ... and you have a family that all the mosquitoes just flock to?

Well Avon has you covered....I use it, my children use it, my grandchildren use it.  I love sitting on my back deck during the summer but am always eaten up by the bugs.  Those pesky mosquitoes and the big horse flies.  So I have plenty of Avon Skin So Soft around to ward them off.

Starting in Campaign 12 (or now if you log onto my estore) you can purchase aerosol  sprays, pump sprays, lotions of SSS bug repellent.  And it works because I use it.  I even spray the screen doors on my deck to keep them away.  On a trip?  Get the towelettes to go in your purse...It is DEET free, gentle and long lasting.  The lotion is water resistant.  It contains Vitamin E, is non greasy, pleasant scent, hypoallergenic and dries quickly.

Right now the prices are great.  Get them before regular pricing kicks in.
Pump spray - reg. $14 is now $6.99
Aerosol spray - reg. $16 is now $7.99
Towelettes - reg. $14 is now $6.99 for a pkg of 8

Most Wanted

Most Wanted Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am never disappointed with a Scottoline book..and Most Wanted clearly hit all expectations. Christine wanted a baby but hubby couldnt give her one...So they went to a donor and she becomes pregnant. But at the same time there is a serial killer loose who looks a lot like their donor. The rest of the book centers around her wanting to find out if the killer is her donor, the affect it has on her marriage to a man who cant wrap his head around having a donor, the lengths she goes through to get to the truth.....and the surprise ending to an amazing story. Love reading Scottoline books that take you on a trip through life, love and happiness.

Nails and then some

I grew up biting my nails.  I hated it but could not stop.  I never had a manicure and even my mother couldnt break the habit.  I think I was in my late 40s when it happened.  A friend gave me a gift certificate to a nail salon and after that I was hooked.

My children were growing up and I treated myself.  I love having manicures/fill ins and find it so relaxing.  One day I even tried a pedicure....not one to have my feet touched....I found it even more relaxing...So every 2-3 weeks I sit in a salon, relax and come out feeling about you?

This blog was prompted by the great sale Avon is now having on their nail polish.  If you get manicures, take a look at these great colors and prices and then go to my site at to purchase....

Where We Belong

Where We Belong Where We Belong by Catherine Ryan Hyde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My genre is mystery/thrillers. This book took me outside of it. BUT it is a heartwarming story of Angie, her autistic sister and their mom. Being homeless is a hard thing for anyone but Angie makes the best of it...she makes the best of every situation. Having to take care of both her mom and sister and deal with the death of her father....she even manages to find a place for them to live. She befriends a neighbor, Paul and he becomes a father figure to her. Their lives intertwine with them helping each other in so many ways. It is a true Hallmark story.

a beautiful day but.....

So we finally have that great weather.  A sweat shirt is good...get out in the sun...This weekend we had two of our grandsons over for a sleep over.  Did some shopping, set up the deck chairs and table. Play some basketball.....get ready to eat dinner out (favorite of the boys)..........and then 102 fever.

It was a hectic week with the citiwides being taken and all the kids anxious about passing.  So we did plan a great weekend but it took a different course.  Of course his brother just got over the flu so we are thinking they will be sharing it.  Gave him Tylenol, called his mom who just got over the little one sick and hubby with sunburn (2nd degree burns from a business trip to Mexico) what next.

Reminds me of when I was a SAHM with five....they used to take turns sharing their germs and I was really staying at home.  Well, there will be warm days ahead...and the sick one is now in the kitchen watching youtube.....laughing.

All is not that bad.  Next stop--Urgent Care
