Michael and I have entered a wedding contest that is (partially) based on votes. We have to make it into the top 50 to be considered, so we have a long way to go and not much time.
This contest is for a dream wedding, sponsored by Crate & Barrel. Runners-up will receive C&B gift cards – quite nice for furnishing a new home. 🙂
If you’d like to vote for us, we’d appreciate it. One vote per person.
We would also welcome your efforts to recruit votes if you feel so inclined. 🙂
Thank you sooo much for all your love and support for us.
I don’t know if anyone checks this anymore (it’s been 8 months since I last updated), but I wanted y’all to know that A Lady in Waiting has a new website and a new blog. They’re completely integrated now, so no leaving the website in order to find the blog. Come on over and visit our new “home”!
I just started my very first BzzAgent Campaign – testing Clean & Clear’s makeup dissolving line and sharing my thoughts on it with others. Since I currently use – and really like – Clean & Clear’s MORNING BURST® Shine Control Facial Scrub, I thought this was a great campaign for me to start with. And I get to share the results with y’all!
- Clean & Clear makeup dissolving facial cleansing wipes
- Clean & Clear soothing eye makeup remover
- coupons and a couple trial packs of cleansing wipes to share with friends
- Clean & Clear makeup bag
So far I’ve used the facial cleansing wipes twice. I was only wearing a touch of foundation (more as a concealer) and a bit of mascara, so there really wasn’t much makeup to remove, but it did take it off nicely. I use Mary Kay mascara and generally just use water, as I’m quite terrified of getting any sort of cleanser in my eyes. These facial wipes did an excellent job removing the mascara completely without making black smudges under my eyes, and they didn’t bother my sensitive skin in the least. The jury’s still out on how clean they left my face feeling when I was done. I’ll keep you updated as I use them more. And I plan to try out the eye makeup remover later this week (a good excuse to play with eye liner and everything!) and will post my thoughts after I’ve done so.
If you’re interested in signing up to participate in this campaign, you can join here: bzzagent.com/go/CleanClear.
But don’t forget to join MyPoints first! BzzAgent thanks their agents for their website participation by rewarding them with MyPoints. (I have 5 MyPoints referrals available for April, so if you’d like to join and don’t mind letting me send you a referral link first, please comment with your e-mail address. I’ll not publish the comment and won’t save, use, sell, or share your e-mail address with anyone else or for any other purpose.)
I’m working on a new website for A Lady in Waiting – something that will be more cost effective and hopefully easier to update. If you have any suggestions for changes, please let me know! What do you like? What do you not like? What would you like to see added, deleted, easier to access, or changed in some way?
In other news, the next issue of the magazine has just been proofread. A few small edits and it’ll be on its way to the printer. Praise the Lord! Thank y’all for your patience. Please keep sharing about the magazine with friends and family. The more people we have subscribing and submitting content, the faster the upcoming issues will be completed.
And, finally, the e-newsletter. I’ve not sent one out in many months. Dare I say close to a year? If you were receiving the e-newsletter when it was still being sent out, could you please tell me what you liked or didn’t like about it? I’d like to start it back up again, but I want to make sure it’s helpful to those who are reading it!
Have a beautiful week! Enjoy the spring!
I’ve just discovered Swagbucks this past month and like it so much I wanted to share. 🙂 I’ve been a member for 3-4 weeks now and have already earned 33 Swagbucks, mostly by using their search engine. Just 12 more and I’ll have enough to trade in for a $5 Amazon gift card. I’ll probably be saving them up for awhile instead and getting some airline miles.
It took about a week for me to get used to searching with Swagbucks instead of Google, like I was accustomed to. Downloading the search bar was a big help. Once in awhile I still switch over to Google when Swagbucks doesn’t come up with quite what I need, but most of the time the results it comes up with are quite sufficient.
Why not give Swagbucks a try? Use them for your everyday online searches and you can be redeeming your “bucks” for gift cards in no time at all!
