CLOSED: Contest! Method Multi-Surface Spray


Woo hoo! The kind folk at method sent me a box of 8 Multi-Surface Cleaner sprays to give away to my readers!

I’ve been a fan of method since their very early days; a method advocate before they even started their “People Against Dirty” program!

In 2002, when Karim Rashid first started working with their bottle design, I read an article about method in How magazine - a design industry rag. Being a sucker for great design, I bought my first bottle of method (then called all-purpose) spray in the French Lavender scent.

I went home and cleaned my counters with it. It smelled lovely! I enjoyed cleaning with it so much that I found myself searching out other...

Review: Angelina Skincare

I posted last night about natural (mostly dietary) acne solutions, at at the very end I shared a The HeyLauraWhat Reader Coupon for 25% off your next purchase at Angelina Skincare, through the end of September. Just use the code “HeyLauraWhat” in the space provided during checkout, or mention it in-store.

I absolutely love Angelina’s stuff and fully intend to take advantage of the coupon code as well! She has a sweet little shop in downtown Bend - exactly what you might imagine an organic herbarium might look and smell like. Lavender drying from the rafters, rows and rows of dark glass bottles, and the coolest old-school cash register I’ve ever seen! If you are in Bend, you should...

CLOSED: Contest! Flip & Tumble reusable bags

******THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED************

I am so excited about this giveaway! I have loved my flip & tumble bags from the moment I got them, and I’m sure you will too. Their 24-7 bag is absolutely my favorite easy-stash bag for minor shopping needs.

Last week, when I was soliciting a few companies for freebies for my readers, I contacted flip & tumble as kind of a long shot. Eva, the creator of the bags, actually emailed me back and said, “Sure! We’d love to send some bags for you to review and give away!” Bags!

She said bagS! I couldn’t wait!

The name “flip and tumble” comes from the technique used to stow away their one-handled bag: you literally “flip and tumble” it into an...

Review: Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss dairy- soy- and gluten-free ice (coconut) cream

As you may recall, earlier this month, we held a contest for free pints of Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss. Kiley, from Coconut Bliss, was kind enough to provide us with coupons so we could try their dairy-free icecream, risk free!

Well, our three lucky winners’ reviews are in, so I’m going to whet your appetite for some cold deliciousness!

Me, Laura - Mint Galactica

I got myself out of my Dark Chocolate rut and chose Mint Galactica as my free pint. I was really happy with it! I think this is a good flavor for people who are not keen on a coconut undertone to their icecream: I could hardly taste the coconut! The mint was strong, but not overpowering, and was shot through with generous...
