Joe Shopping's This Is My Bucket List

Joe Shopping's is having a Kindle Fire giveaway. All you have to do is make a bucket list. Since I never thought of myself in the "other" side, I have never made one before! Like many people say, "There is a first time for everything!" There are a millions things I would love to do before crossing to the unfamiliar side, of course one would be to never step into it to begin with - haha! Getting to the point, here is my bucket list, hope you get a giggle or two out of it!

1. I am terrified of sharks, but love watching Shark week, and I would like to get over my fear and swim with them. Although I think I should learn how to swim first, you know because getting in the water with a white shark could just end my bucket list right there and then!
2. I'm a picky eater and would love to have the guts of Andrew Zimmern to eat all the "guts" he actually eats. I would give this a try and just think that it comes in one way and out the other, you know, to get the rhythm going!
3. I would go in a wild hunt for Justin Bieber and accuse him of being the father of my baby, haha just kidding. I would actually fulfill my oldest daughters dream of ever meeting him. It just wouldn't feel right in the "other" side without helping out my daughter, family time is the best time!! Oh what the heck, I have Bieber Fever too!!
4. Call me crazy but I would love the rush of stealing the worlds most expensive item, whatever it is. I would love to have a team like Oceans eleven. That would be out of this world!
5. Last but not least, I would join a massive paint ball team contest and/or do some crazy stunts like Jackass!!
If I could include another one I would travel to other planets, it would be awesome to come across some aliens!!!

You can check out more of Joe Shopping's list here.

Have you tried Covergirl Natureluxe?

I'm a BuzzAgent and got the opportunity to test some Covergirl Natureluxe products.  One of the products I got to test is the new Covergirl Natureluxe foundation. I have sensitive skin and always have problems using certain cosmetics but I am glad I was able to test this products.  The foundation matched my skin color perfectly.  It has a smooth, silky feel to it.  It feels like you don't have anything on.  It stays on all day long, so you don't have to bother with retouching during the day.  I love that is oil free and SPF 10. 

I also was giving the opportunity to test out Covergirl Natureluxe gloss balm. This gloss keeps my lips moisturized.  I do not have to be retouching them.  I like the fact that my crazy hair does not stick to it, especially when it is windy! It has SPF 15. 

Some features to keep in mind...

Silk Foundation

* Provides a smooth, silky feel
* Contains refreshing cucumber water to help balance the creaminess on application
* Made with hints of jojoba and rosehip extracts
* Available in 14 shades ranging from light to dark tones.
* Oil-free, SPF 10 and dermatologically tested
* Suggested to retail for $11.99

Gloss Balm

* Combines the sheer color and shine of a gloss with the soft moisturization of a balm
* Available in 16 verstatile, beautiful shades
* Formulated with SPF 15 for added protection
* Suggested to retail for $6.49

Recyclebank: Earn Points = Rewards

Have you heard of Recyclebank? I love it! I wish that RGV would do more regarding recycling. I bet if this program was used a lot more people would recycle. Recyclebank is a site where you earn points by answering polls, watching videos + many other opportunities.  You can also earn points recycling, but like I mentioned above RGV does not participate in this program. You can still take advantage and earn points in may other ways + you can later redeem your points for valuable coupons! Right now if you register here you can take Recyclebank's Green Your Home Challenge. Once you register here  go the "Earn Points" tab and you will see the above picture.  Follow the link to enter the challenge.  To your right you can see a map of a house click on it and you can click on the kitchen and click over each of the [+] that are all over the kitchen.  You earn points by following each of the [+].  When you are done with that you can do the same for the living room. You can finish by going over to the "Get Rewards" tab and browse all the rewards. 

My favorite rewards are the following:

$1 off one bottle of Honest Tea 10 pts
$2 off any Aveeno product (excludes travel/trail sizes) 30 pts

They are both printable so you don't have to wait to get them via snail mail!

Family Dollar $5 off $25 Purchase Coupon

I'm personally not a shopper at Family Dollar but I decided to sign up to their newsletter.  I received my first e-mail and it included a coupon for $5 off any purchase of $25 or more. You can print the coupon here, you can also hit the back button and print a second coupon. I was surprised when I went into their site and saw all the different items they have available.  They have a 2011 Spring Apparel Book with $25 of coupons inside.  I took a look online of the book and it has very cute clothing for the entire family.  You can take a look at the book and coupons here. I have twins and they have some coupons for Buy 1 clothing item and get 1 50% off, they also have $1 any shoes. These are great deals considering that my twins grow out of their clothes in a snap. Since there is a coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase in addition to other apparel coupons I wanted to know if we could combine these coupons to get a even better deal so I went digging to read their coupon policy, you can read the policy here. To my surprise I learned that you can stack coupons at Family Dollar.  You can use a manufacturer coupon + a Family Dollar coupon on one item. I am still wondering if we can combine the $5 off coupon with the apparel coupons so I will be visiting a store tomorrow to find out.  They are building a store one block away from my house so I am so excited.  

Come back and let me know what deals you scored at your Family Dollar.

***This is my personal opinion of Family Dollar. I received no compensation of any kind towards this post.
