Homegoods $100 GC Giveaway

Last Saturday I took a little trip to Atlanta for a private Blogher shopping event at Homegoods. For me to tell you it was awesome would be a total understatement. I mean, who wouldn't love shopping with free money. :)

As I mentioned in my last post, I had decided before I went to try to buy things for the new baby's room. Yeah, um, that didn't really happen. I walked into Homegoods and lost my FREAKING MIND! My needs and wants were having an all out war in my head.

 Things I need.... boring kitchen scissors. 

Things I want... All of this fun summer stuff!

Things I need...new kitchen strainer. 

Things I want...All of these adorable comforters. 

Luckily for me I came to my senses before walking out with 100 cute tumblers. I was given a $100 giftcard to spend, and it was a lot harder to spend then I thought it was going to be. The prices were amazing so I managed to get a full cart of stuff and still come in under budget.

I found some really fun kitchen scissors, bamboo cutting boards, and this adorable bright summery strainer. The best of both worlds. Fun and practical!

I also found something for London and even a few things for the new baby's nursery. 

I even spoiled myself with a new set of wine glasses. I know, I know! I'm can't drink, but I won't be pregnant forever. And in the mean time I will just pretend by using them for fresh fruit punch. It sure beats non-alcoholic beer :)

Here is my loot from my mini shopping spree.

Homegoods Review & Sweepstakes

A few days ago I found out that I will be attending a very special private shopping event in Atlanta on Saturday, May 21st at one of my favorite stores, HOMEGOODS!

OMG! Can I please just express to all of you right now how excited I am about this. 

While pondering what I was going to buy while I was there, I had a million things pop into my head. 

New wine rack?

 Wait, I'm pregnant and can't drink. 

Maybe a cute mirror to decorate the guest room? 

 Wait, that has become a MAN room! Why waste my riches on that? 

Then I got it!!! Decorations for the new baby's room!

 Maybe a toy box like this one? 

What would you buy with a shopping spree to Homegoods?

No matter what I buy I know it is going to be awesome. I'm sure you are all very jealous (as you should be haha!), but don't worry there is something in it for you too! Blogher has a sweepstakes for ten $25 gift cards on the BlogHer Prizes & Promotions Page. Go enter now so you can win too!!!

A 35 Dollar CSN Stores Gift Code Giveaway!

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last year or so, you have probably heard of a not so little website called CSN Stores. I first heard about them when a bloggy friend of mine hosted a giveaway. While I didn't win that time, I did find some really cool stuff. They have pretty much everything from wine glasses to sandboxes. Trust me I should know, I have probably visited the site way too many times over the last few weeks. Come on it's Christmas time, I'm allowed to shop online a lot...right?

When they approached me about doing a giveaway here at Infertility Overachievers Reviews and Giveaways, I jumped at the chance. They have some truly amazing specialty stores like this one for Coffee Tables. I have fallen in love with quite a few tables and it kinda makes me want to take a sledge hammer to mine. I will try to resist the temptation, but that doesn't mean YOU have to. :) Go check them out for yourself.

Strong Yoga "Fertility Ball" Review and Giveaway xxxCLOSEDxxx

It's that time again!! After having such a great response during the Yoga4Fertility DVD giveaway, we are going to do it again.

Strong Yoga4Fertility is a program created by award winning actress Brenda Strong, best known for her role as Mary Alice Young on ABC's Desperate Housewives. After her own personal struggle with infertility, she created a program  to help woman naturally increase their fertility through yoga.
Her Yoga4Fertility DVD was a great and I really enjoyed reviewing it. This time I was given the opportunity to review The Fertility Ball and Strong Fertility Ball Yoga Method.

The Strong Fertility Ball Yoga Method, created by fertility yoga expert Brenda Strong, is a way for women to empower themselves to:
- Stimulate Circulation/Blood Flow
- Massage Internal Organs
-Use Acupressure Points for Fertility
-Help to Regulate Gynecological Function
-Detoxify and Cleanse
-Decrease Stress
-Open Connective Tissue/Fascia

I tested out The Fertility Ball and really really enjoyed it (and so did London). I was trying alot of the different poses and London came and sat on top of me. Not exactly the relaxation I was looking for. At nap time, I tried again. This time I tested out the majority of the poses, I say majority because a few just looked a little to difficult for a beginner like me. I really liked it and definitely plan on using it again, especially when I start IVF. I am not fond of acupuncture just the idea of it gives me the heeby jeebies, not even to mention how expensive it gets. So I am planning to using this to hit the fertility acupressure points that will hopefully have similar effects to acupuncture.


Yoga4Fertility was kind enough to send me an extra Fertility Ball to giveaway to one of my lucky readers. Here is how you can win. Giveaway will end August 8, 2010 at 12:00 am EST.

The Rules:
1. Leave a separate comment for each entry.
2. Leave an email, or make sure it is listed (and easy to find) on your blog or twitter page so I can contact the winner.

How to Enter:
1. (Mandatory) Just leave me a comment. Simple as that.
Example: Hi Aly!! (just in case y'all needed an example hahahaha!)

2. Follow Infertility Overachievers blog, and let me know if you already do (1 entry).
3. Follow Infertility Overachievers Reviews and Giveaways blog 
4. Follow @STRONGyoga4f  on Twitter (1 entry).
5. Tweet this message: "Win a The Fertility Ball from @IFOverachievers and @STRONGyoga4f http://bit.ly/aj2xWL " (1 entry per day, leave links for verification)
6. Blog about this giveaway (please leave a link to your post) (5 additional entries)
7. Grab my button for your blog. (5 additional entries)
8. Follow The Infertility Overachievers on Facebook (2 entries)

I'll draw a winner using the Random Number Generator and announcing the winner sometime on Tuesday, August 10, 2010.
