WIN! PALM PRE (yes, the cellphone!) December 19, 2009

Filed under: Consumer Goods — shinypackages @ 10:17 am

FUN! That’s the first word that comes to mind when I think about the Palm Pre that I’ve been test driving for the last little while. I’m the first to admit that I’m no tech wizard but I seemed to find my way around this slick cellphone without too much trouble. Of course my 11-year old son quickly discovered all kinds of new and fun things after playing with it for five minutes. What’s that saying about teaching old dogs new tricks?

Here’s a little more about the Palm Pre.

Introducing Palm Pre™, a phone so in sync with your life it feels like it’s thinking ahead for you. Pre pulls your different online calendars into one view, bringing you the information you want without having to search for it. Pre links your contacts from different sources, giving you one place to find what you need. And Pre delivers incoming messages and notifications in an intuitively subtle way, letting you react or respond however you want. People, events, information that matters. With Palm Pre, it’ll come to you.

The Palm Pre is available in Canada on the Bell network for $99.95 with a three-year contract, but you could win it right here! The winner must be an Ontario resident.

WIN! BLOCKBUSTER MOVIES! December 15, 2009

Filed under: Consumer Goods — shinypackages @ 11:59 am

I grew up in show business. That’s right! When I was 11 years old, my dad proudly announced that he and my mom had bought a movie theatre. So began my love of movies.

Going to the movie theatre is my first love of course. But with Blu-ray, high def and fantastic sound systems, enjoying movies at home is nothing to sneeze at. Getting movies for Christmas is high on my list. There’s nothing better than having a movie day during the wintery break before Christmas and New Year’s.

Blockbuster is a one-stop shop for the movie buffs on your list. I highly recommend Star Trek. Even if you aren’t a dyed-in-the-wool Trekkie (or is it Trekker?), you’l love this flick. It’s $26.99 at Blockbuster.

WIN Star Trek, Up and G.I. Joe!

WIN! JOHN FRIEDA HAIR CARE PACK! December 14, 2009

Filed under: Consumer Goods — shinypackages @ 12:07 pm

Volume, volume, volume! Do I dare say it? Big hair is back (all we teenagers of the 80s are rejoicing)! John Frieda is not a brand name I grew up with. Out in the country, we have Tame and if we really wanted to splurge, Pert. But I’m quickly falling in low with this line, especially the products that offer me volume. I’ve been using them for the last six months and they do wonders for my usually limp lid.

The John Frieda hair care professionals recognize that women are looking for true thickness, fullness and root lift from volumizing products—not just one type of volume boost. The modern, high-performing products in the new Luxurious Volume line instantly create multi-dimensional volume via a three-pronged method: fullness, thickness and lift.

WIN! A prize pack of Luxurious Volume products from John Frieda! The value is over $60!

Looking just like Christmas tree lights, these festive foaming baths come in six colours and fragrances: Field Berries, Pear-Peony, Grapefruit-Guava, Georgia Peach, Very Lemon and Orange-Cantaloup. I’d would be really surprised if Fruits & Passion didn’t sell out of these fabulous bubble bath sets. Is there any better gift for teacher, yoga instructor, babysitter? Don’t fret if they are sold out. The shop has lots of other holiday-inspired products. I love the cranberry hand soap. It’s the perfect decorating accessory for the powder room!
