Feature Post - Brag About It

One of my favorite online shops is Brag About It.  Not only is it one of my favorites, but I'm lucky enough to have Brag About It as one of my sponsors.  Would you believe Brag About It was my very first sponsor and has never left my sidebar?  Well, you would if you knew Melissa... she's AMAZINGLY supportive and I'm really LUCKY to have her as my friend.


I just ordered two new pieces (one for my hubby and one for Gabrielle).  I always loved the way my order is beautiful packaged, however Brag About It has outdone itself again with some new super pretty packaging.  I really ADORE the new little box with the pink bow!


Would you like to see some of my Brag About It custom pieces?

This is Emanuelle's Teeny Tiny Cup of Love

This is one of the new pieces I ordered for Gabrielle.  It's basically the Teeny Tiny Cup of Love but I asked to change the heart to the Open Heart Charm.

This is the keychain I just ordered for S├ębastien.

This is my Double Cup of Love.  The birthstones are mine and S├ębastien's.

I also own the Capture the Moment Necklace (my parents got it for me for my birthday). 

Next on my to buy list is the Bragging Cuff.

Do you own any Brag About It pieces?  Do you have any on your wishlist?  Make sure to follow Brag About It on Facebook because there's always a discount code for Facebook Friends.

Have a GREAT day!!

Glasses USA - Virtual Mirror Fun

Do you wear glasses?  I don't but I've always wanted to know what I would look like with some.  All my family members wear glasses (my parents and my sisters) even my hubby does.  I feel like an outcast!

GlassesUSA.com has this awesome little feature called Try-it Mirror. It's a virtual mirror which allows you to try on some glasses. This is what it looks like:


To use Try-It Mirror you upload a photo of yourself (or you can use one of their stock photos).  You then select the eyeglasses frames (which there's a HUGE selection of) you would like to try on and then you click on Try it On.  Pretty easy right?

Interested in seeing what I would look like with some eyeglasses? What do you think?  Pretty neat feature right?



I really LOVED this feature.  I'm going to take a photo of my hubby and play around with it. He's due for some new glasses and he loves to buy everything online so he'll be quite happy when I tell him he can buy his glasses online too! There's just something nice about shopping online, there's no rush no pressure.. just shop the way you please.

If you would like to try GlassesUsa, they are offering discounts to The DIY Dreamer readers:
Summer Sale: Get 30% off prescription eyeglasses (or sunglasses) + FREE Shipping with the code: Summer2012
Take 10% off any order of prescription glasses. Code: Blog10


Have a great day!

Product Review - Kids Email


Has your child been asking you for their own email account and you've been hesitant to say yes?  Then, Kids Email is the perfect solution for your family.

Kids Email is a web based email program where you are able to manage everything and yet please your child because he/she finally gets their own email.

Several options and features are available to keep your child safe:

  • Allow child to only receive and send emails from those in their contact list
  • Email copy of incoming and outgoing messages to the parent
  • Remove images within emails
  • Remove links within emails
  • Only allow specific attachment types.
  • Allow a parent to approve or deny any email sent to your children via the mail queue
  • Filter out offensives words found in incoming emails
  • Spam filtering
  • Kids can modify the look and feel of their account by choosing from several fun templates
  • A simple mode for young children as well as an advance mode for slightly older kids

My eldest daughter is 7 and she was SUPER excited when I told her that she had her own email address.  Before telling her, I went in the Parent section and configured all the safety settings I wanted.  I also added contacts in her contact list.  I was really impressed with all the safety settings.  My daughter and I logged into her account and selected the template for her mail account.  She picked out the Princess template.

She's now sending and receiving emails.  She's quite proud of that.  And honestly, I just LOVE receiving cute little ''I love you Mommy'' emails that she sends me.

I really like KidsEmail.org.  It has lots of safety options for me and simple enough for my daughter to use.  I think the only thing I would maybe have enjoyed, was a spell-check option... HOWEVER maybe with that option my daughter would become lazy with her spelling knowing that the program with fix them for her.

If ever you would like to try it out, Kids Email offers a 30 day free trial.

Hope you are having a great day!

Feature Post - Yeung Mother Hubbard

Guess who's here today?  Nichole from Yeung Mother Hubbard!!  YAY!! I truly ADORE this lady.  She's wonderful, caring and SWEET!  I asked her a few questions so that you could get to know her a little better.


Happy Reading!



*****


Hi there, I am Nichole and I am the voice behind Yeung Mother Hubbard.  I am a wife to my best friend, a doggie mama, an auto damage estimator / office manager, a quilter, a DIYer, a crafter, a nail polish hoarder, a food lover and much much more.



What do you like most about your blog, Yeung Mother Hubbard?
My favorite thing about my blog is definitely my new bloggy friends.  I have met so many great people through my blog!  The only thing that I would change... I would have started blogging a lot earlier if I had known all of these awesome people were out there!

Elevate Blog Conference 2012

If you had an iTunes gift card, what songs or album would you buy?
If I had an iTunes gift card I would buy anything country!  Here are a few off my list: Truck Yeah - Tim McGraw, Musta Had a Good Time - Parmalee, Pontoon - Little Big Town, Something To Do With My Hands - Thomas Rhett, Somethin' 'Bout a Truck - Kip Moore.

What's your favorite comfort food?
When things aren't going my way and I am down the hubby always takes me out for one of my favorite foods.  Mud Pie Mojo at Cold Stone, Sushi at Toshi's, Royal Red Robin Burger at Red Robin, or Lobster Nachos at Catalina Fish Kitchen.  Yummmm, now I am hungry.

via

What's your typical Tuesday morning?
It usually starts with hitting the snooze button 2-3 times... jumping in the shower, running out the door with wet hair, sitting in traffic on my way to work and barely arriving at 7:30 AM... lets be honest, this is every weekday for me.

via

What is your favorite source of entertainment?
Doing something crafting... except that I haven't seemed to have the time in forever!  I usually end up hanging out with my neighbors instead and by the time I get home its time for bed so that I can over sleep and rush off to work the next day!

Thanks for having me over again Christine!
