Snappy Straps Camera Strap Cover GIVEAWAY!

My post was deleted in the Blogger failure! Be sure to re-enter since your comments were lost!

My blogger friend Leah asked me to do a giveaway for her awesome camera strap covers that she sells on Etsy (click here!)! I am so excited about this!
Leah's store, Snappy Straps, offers a wide variety of 100% cotton fabric straps, and they are all handmade by her! They are 26" long by 2.5" wide and fit most DSLR camera straps! She also does custom sizes if your strap is a little different!

Aren't the rosettes on these straps just darling?!

This is my very own Snappy Strap. My very favorite feature is the lens cap holder - see it?

I am constantly losing or misplacing my lens but now I slide it into the elastic pocket (it slides all the way in but for the picture I left it out a little so that you could plainly see the pocket) and it stays put no matter what I do!

Do you want to get your very own Snappy Strap camera strap cover? There's two way! You can enter my giveaway now or you can buy one direct from Snappy Strap using this 10% off coupon code: JENNASJOURNEY

Here's how to enter the giveaway! Each of the following is worth 1 entry - and be sure to leave your EMAIL address and TOTAL number of entries earned in your comment!

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Olay Total Effects Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and OLAY.

I’m excited to share about a new product from Olay with you! As a new mom (again) sleep is a hot commodity around here. Translation: I’ve got some scary looking dark circles under my eyes!

Olay Total Effects Line & Dark Circle Minimizing Brush is a new product in my makeup arsenal that helps me combat the 7 signs of aging: dark circles, fine lines, puffy eyes, loss of firmness, uneven texture, uneven tone, and dryness.

Since I began using this new product I really have noticed a difference – especially in the dark circles, tone, puffiness and fine lines. I’m one of those people who slathers on the under eye concealer but I’ve noticed that I really haven’t needed it since adding the Total Effects Line and Dark Circles Minimizing Brush to my regimen!

It instantly makes me skin feel fresh and renewed. The brush is in a pen type applicator and you just push the end to disperse the product, which is flesh tone in color. It sweeps on gently and then I just massage it under my eyes with my fingertips.

I’m not one to go out of my house without makeup on, but this product really is simplifying my beauty routine. I don’t need to apply concealer, let it dry, apply it again etc. which I am SO excited about!

With a trusted name like Olay (Visit the Official site), you know this is going to work!

Want to enter to win a $100 Spa Finders Gift Card from BlogHer?

Customized Platter from Simply Stella Giveaway!

I think you are going to love this next giveaway!!

I recently purchased personalized plates for Brody and Brayden's Easter buckets. When I was shopping around on Etsy I found Simply Stella's site and loved all of the cute designs. I knew I wanted a blue elephant for Brody because that is his favorite toy, and I wanted a backhoe for Brayden because he loves equipment and the backhoe happens to be his favorite. Now, I don't know if you've ever searched for a backhoe on a personalized plate before but take my word, it's not easy to find. Actually, it was impossible. So, I messaged Brittany at Simply Stella and she made one for me! You can see Brody and Brayden's plates below:

And, I don't have a girl but if I did she would have gotten one of these plates in her Easter bucket:

And while I was at it, I thought I'd order a platter for myself. Aren't these adorable? I think this would be great to take to small group with a batch of cookies on:

How would YOU like to win a platter from Simply Stella? She has SO many cute designs on her site to choose from! And while you're over there check out the birthday plates and special Easter plates as well!

Want to order something NOW? How about a 10% discount code to Simply Stella? Use the code simplystella10 for 10% off your order, now through April 15!

To enter to win a customized platter from Simply Stella, just do the following:

For one entry, visit Simply Stella's Etsy Site and tell me what your favorite item is. Be sure to leave me your email address and your total number of entries earned!

For another entry, tweet, blog or facebook about this giveaway. Please link to my main blog page (not this page) and if you tweet, mention @Jenna05 so I see it!

Shabby Apple Giveaway!

I am so excited to share this next giveaway with you! The Shabby Apple contacted me about giving a dress away to one of my lucky readers as well as a special 10% off discount code!

Shabby Apple has a huge selection of women's dresses as well as little girls dresses.

I was faced with the difficult decision of picking out a dress! Looking through their site, I found SO many dresses I loved! My favorite thing about the dresses at Shabby Apple are that they are modern but modest! You won't have to layer up with cami's and sweaters to make their dresses work for you, because their are perfect for any occasion just as they are!

Here are a few of my favorites...

A sunny spring dress:

Doesn't this just scream Jackie O?
Love this one - especially the beautiful rich color!
This would be a great Easter or work option!
Another cute and casual dress!
I love, love, love kelly green and mixed with the navy, I love this one!
So which one did I pick?

I love this dress - it's called Nine to Five. The reason I picked this one for one of you lucky gals to win is because it's so versatile. You can dress it up for a night out with one of Shabby Apple's great accessories, or you could dress it down with a pair of flat boots and a leather biker jacket. You can really make this dress work all year long just by changing a few things like adding a jacket or wearing enclosed shoes for winter or a cute open toed wedge and some pretty long necklaces for spring. You can see more pictures of this dress by clicking here.

As a special bonus for you all, the Shabby Apple has given us a special 10% off discount code! Just use the code jennasjourney10off on your next order!

Here's how to enter:

Leave me a comment including your name, email address and how many entries you've earned in the comments for 1 entry.

"Like" the Shabby Apple's facebook page (click here) for 1 entry. They share promos and other great info there!

Follow my main blog (click here) for 1 entry.

Tweet, blog or facebook about this giveaway (linking to my main blog page) for 2 entries! Make sure to leave me a link to your tweet/post!

This giveaway is open to US Residents only.

New Years Resolution time...

This is sponsored content from BlogHer and Reebok.

So the New Year is here! And of course, with that comes resolutions. Can you guess what mine might be? Since I just had another c-section baby, I've been left with a little extra "fluff" that I would sure like to lose! So this year my resolution is to get back down to a weight that I feel comfortable at and to TONE!!!

There are a few ways I plan on achieving my goals. Living in the South it seems as though all food is fried. Seriously. Even the vegetables. Oh, and occasionally the desserts (fried oreos anyone?!). So my first line of attack is obvious - cut down on the fried food and make smart choices with what I'm putting into my body. And perhaps cut down on the chocolate...except maybe the dark chocolate...because that's good for you right? ;-)

Another thing is exercise. But with two babies under two years old I don't really know how I'm going to get out and about. I won't take them out in the bad weather, and I don't have the time to just go upstairs and jump on my treadmill. And then I had a thought...what about trying those new Reebok Easy Tones? They tone while you're doing whatever it is you do. I could wear them to the grocery store and even just around my house while I'm chasing the boys! I'm not sure it gets much easier than that!!

What do you plan on doing this year to improve your health? Leave me a comment to enter to win a $100 Visa Gift Card! This giveaway will end on 1-16-10!
