Need a Reno-Cation? – Contest Closed

We Have a Winner!  The Winner is  Oceanside! Congratulations!

True Random Number Generator Min: Max: Result: 105

I know I sure need one.  A reno-cation, if you do not know what that is, is a renovation to your home, as well as a vacation so you can relax when it is all over.  That is definitely what I could use.  My home needs to have a few rooms painted like the living room and bathroom, plus I need to learn how to organize things better with shelving or storage units etc..  Maybe some nice pictures or artwork for my walls.  There are endless possibilities.  Then after all that hard work, I can dream of flying out to Hawaii or some other tropical paradise so that I could relax and have fun.  Wouldn’t it be nice? 


Now if it sounds like you need a reno-cation, then Royale has the promotion for you.  They are giving away $25,000 worth of prizes.  Here are some details for the grand prize they are giving away: 

- The Grand prize includes $13,000 to spend on a home renovation in any way the winner chooses AND an 11-day, $7,000 Royal Caribbean cruise for two on the “Jewel of the Seas.”
- An additional $5,000 in prizes will be given away to secondary winners in the form of 15 weekly prize packs from the Royale Luxury Bath Collection that include a personal heated towel rack, new luxurious towels, and premium Royale robes.


If you play the game on their website, you can enter two times each time instead of just one each time you enter.  So more chances to win. 

Sounds nice doesn’t it?  But that’s not all.  In addition to entering that contest, Mom Central Canada (www.momcentral.com) has kindly agreed to let me host a blog campaign and contest for them.  I will be giving away a $50.00 Cara restaurant gift card, accepted at Swiss Chalet, Montana’s, Milestones, Kelsey’s, and  Harvey’s, as well as a $50.00 Home Hardware gift card.  So that indeed is a nice prize as well ($100 value).  The contest will run from March 15, 2010 to April 27, 2010.  Open to Canadian entries only.  Please leave a comment to enter the contest and tell me “What is your ultimate reno-cation”?

For extra entries:

1.  Please follow me @freeshopper on twitter and leave a separate comment for that. 

2.  Re-tweet the contest for me.

3.  Follow my blog and/or subscribe to my blog and leave me a separate comment. 

4.  Post about this contest on your blog and leave me the link in a separate comment.

HydraSense nasal aspirator

logo I remember when my son was a wee little baby and got a cold.  He must have been only a couple months old, maybe less.  He was so small and couldn’t breathe that well.  We took him to the doctor and the doctors gave him some meds.  He could barely breathe with his nose being all stuffed up.  He ended up being fine, but as first time parents we all worry.  They never had such things as nasal aspirators then. 

Since babies are unable to blow their nose and can develop as many as eight colds a year, our friends at HydraSense® have designed a new product that provides quick and effective relief from your baby’s nasal congestion and helps avoid excessive crying and poor sleeping.
The HydraSense® Nasal Aspirator and its filters were developed with pediatricians, and are brought to you by HydraSense® , the leading brand in saline solutions for the whole family. The HydraSense® Nasal Aspirator is a gentle and safe way to relieve your baby’s nasal congestion quickly and effectively. It helps to maintain clear breathing and to facilitate eating and sleeping. Its soft nasal tip is specifically designed for babies’ delicate noses and its transparent design allows for you to see the amount and type of mucus that is being removed. HydraSense® Nasal Aspirator has a protective single-use filter that traps excess mucus, providing hygienic aspiration. The tip and base of the aspirator are easily removable for effective cleaning after each use. Unlike squeezable nasal aspirators, the HydraSense® Nasal Aspirator allows you to control the strength of the suction with your aspiration.

For best results, and to liquefy mucus prior to aspiration, use HydraSense® Easydose® or HydraSense®Ultra-Gentle Mist with Comfort Tip, a nasal solution composed of isotonic, undiluted, sterile, 100% natural-source desalinated seawater. HydraSense® contains more than 70 trace elements and minerals naturally occurring in seawater and is preservative free.

If you think this is the right product for your child, please visit www.hydrasense.ca/en/babynasal.aspx today.  You can sign up for the Dolphin club and download their exclusive coupon.  Once logged into your account, you can enter the code MC2010 under the online coupons tab, in order to get an $8.00 off coupon to be used towards the purchase of the HydraSense® Nasal Aspirator (Coupon itself expires December 31, 2010).

***Note, I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central and received a Mom Central gift pack to thank me for taking the time to participate. For more information, please visit www.momcentral.com
