I’ve made my list and checked it twice and now I’m putting the finishing touches on it. Nothing says I love you like a thoughtful gift that gives back. Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday is Giving Tuesday. This gives us an opportunity to think about others choosing a gift that focuses on charitable giving too.


This year on 12/01/15 the 4th annual #Giving Tuesday – World Vision will partner with Thrity-One Gifts to help make twice the impact with charitable donations. On #GivingTuesday, every donation made by phone (1-888-511-6588) or online ( to World Vision will be matched by Thirty-One Gifts – a direct-selling company offering totes, purses and more – with a donation of one of their products, such as a tote bag or blanket, up to a total of $1M worth of products for women and girls in need around the world.

Bags like this have recently been distributed to volunteers in Burundi who use the totes to carry materials for educating families about malnutrition. Before receiving the totes, volunteers, carried all of their materials and equipment by hand. The simple gift of these tote bags preserves teaching materials and makes it easier for volunteers to visit each home.


Products donated to World Vision on #GivingTuesday through this partnership will be shared with communities in need so that women are able to continue the important education they are providing. To order from World Vision’s Gift Catalog, visit or call 855-WV-GIFTS.


Thirty-One Gifts was founded on the principle of helping women and is known for their charitable heart. In 2012 they founded a philanthropic initiative called Thirty-One Gives and to-date has donated more than $80 million in cash and products to nonprofit organizations that empower women and girls and support families. The product you are receiving, from the Thirty-One Gives line, gives back as well with a donation of 31 cents from every sale going to a philanthropic fund. It also delivers an inspiring message on the inside with encouraging words for women. For more information, visit their website at


I received a beautiful Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote for review and to see first hand what is being donated to women and girls around the world.

World Vision & Thrity-One are also setting a bag aside for one lucky winner.

What is nice about this bear is that you can customize it for your child. He is meant for 2 years or older, which means he will work perfectly for my 5 year old. Once you put the app on your device you will be asked a bunch of different questions so that way Teddy knows your child. It also works to see how well you know your child when you are filling out the questions without them beside you I did to get Teddy ready for Christmas morning.


There are different games that your child can play with Teddy when he is hooked up to the blue tooth device. You can have him read your child a story, do activities such as fish bowls, sea puzzle, animal zoo. Then there is a page for you to fill out with information about your child’s family members and there friends. There is also a button to push so they can interact with Teddy by answering the questions that Teddy asks. The stories that Teddy tells are ones that your child may know like Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. You can also sing a song with Teddy.


What is great for this Teddy bear for younger children is that he does not need to be connected to the internet to use him. He just uses the information that you entered when you started him up and down loaded the app on to the desired device. You can also control how his mouth works when he talks, with the switches on his back.

Wearing and applying makeup can be such a chore. For women we are always looking for that stunning evening look or natural daytime eye shadow without looking like a hot mess of Tammy Faye Baker. The problem with eye shadow is that when we want to mix some colors for that great blended look, we have to try to find spare tissue to swirl our shadow brush into in order to get rid of the previous color. Even then we are left with a hit or miss opportunity for well set makeup. Not to mention cleaning, cleaning brushes is always a chore and if not cleaned properly, the end result is wasted money due to ruining our brushes.

Yet there is a solution! The Color Switch by Vera Mona. The Color Switch is a color switch sponge and eye shadow palette in one. The color switch sponge allows you to swirl your shadow brush along the unique material that removes the shadow and then apply another color or blend flawlessly. No more struggling with messy tissue. No more time being wasted on trying to use a brush cleaner to obtain that beautiful look.

I was a skeptic myself until I applied the different shadows with the dual head brush. All the colors are representative of flowers and are totally neutral; great for any skin type or tone. I had a lot of fun layering and blending the colors depending upon the look I was trying to achieve. Just a simple swirl or stroke along the color switch pad and “VOILA!” no more color on my brush and I was free to choose the next color. You can even do this with wet colors for the same effect and for a dramatic look.

The Vera Mona Color Switch is excellent for any woman or a professional makeup artist with their full line of color switch utensils and the new Lotus Color Switch Palette. Change up your looks and have fun with makeup without making a mess of your bathroom or yourself with the easy application and blending with the Vera Mona Color Switch Lotus Palette.

Three (3) lucky reader will win the LOTUS Vera Mona Color Switch valued at $32.99

Giveaway open to ages 18+ and residents of the United States only and ends 11/04/2015.
