Playtex Bra Makover

Accountability time- Did you know that 70% of us aren't even wearing the correct bra size? I'm than positive that I'm in the majority because all too many times I've struggled with unsightly bulges, insufficient support and uncomfortable straps. No wonder finding the perfect bra can be such a daunting task. A downright chore. So much so that when I do find one that works for me I buy as many as five of them at a time just to ensure that I don't have to go on the hunt again for a while!

Enough about me. Right now Playtex is running a contest (www.PlaytexBraMakeover.com)where you can apply for a bra makeover or nominate a friend to win a trip to New York where they will receive a bra makeover from style expert Alison Deyette (seen on Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker and TLC's Ten Years Younger). Hurry on over to enter! Contest ends Friday, May 21st, 2010.

By posting this information, I am entered into a contest to win a free bra from Playtex. I did not receive any compensation for this post and thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

The Changing Room

As Mother's Day approaches, I start to reflect on all the precious moments I've shared with my three beautiful children. The day they were born, their first words, all the things they've done and said to make me smile. I wish I had been better about keeping a journal or baby book to store my memories in, but the hustle and bustle of everyday life seems to have gotten in the way of that. Imagine my delight when I learned of "The Changing Room: A Mother's Journal of Gratitude to Her Little Girl." Author, Cristina Carlino has created an interactive journal to capture such moments in. In it, readers can write in their own stories, store keepsakes, drawings and letters. It's the perfect way to treasure priceless memories.

Actress Mariska Hargitay says about the book: "This beautiful and rare journal is an expression of the exquisite and tender delight Cristina takes in motherhood. As if by magic, the journal opens doors into the most precious terrain where the miracles of childhood transform into memories large and small. What a gift to be led to this place of wonder, joy and gratitude. And we are so pleased that 100% of the net proceeds from this book are being donated to the Joyful Heart Foundation. Thank you, Cristina!"

To celebrate Mother's Day and the release of her book, Cristina is hosting a WISHES FOR MY LITTLE GIRL PHOTO CONTEST on her Facebook fan page where 5 winners win a copy of the book. The Changing Room is available for purchase on Amazon.com. 100% of the net proceeds for The Changing Room will go to Joyful Heart Foundation, an organization benefiting survivors of rape, incest and abuse.
