Congratulations!

I’ve always been a big fan of Vanessa William’s recording career and was thrilled to hear that she was releasing a brand new CD, The Real Thing.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is Vanessa Williams’ Concord Records debut and her first album in more than four years. In her own words, The Real Thing is “a potpourri of breezy Latin rhythms, sultry jazz standards and dreamy pop sketches,” and delves into the sophisticated pop and R&B that have been the hallmark of her dynamic musical career. Vanessa has garnered a total of 16 Grammy nominations and sold millions of albums throughout her musical career.

MY REVIEW

The Real Thing was a real hit with me. It’s something I can listen to during a romantic evening, when I need a little quiet time, or on a lazy afternoon. Her jazzy and sometimes big band sound makes her new recordings so easy to listen to and I found myself easily getting lost in the rhytmns. After listening to this CD, I just couldn’t help but be in a better mood. It had a calming effect on me and I will definitely be adding this compilation to my iPod to take to the hospital for my delivery.

TJ Maxx & Marshalls “Spendervention” (Giveaway)

Congratulations!

By now I’m sure you’ve all seen the funny new Spendervention commercials on television. It’s the one where a group of friends get together to convince their buddy that they’re spending too much money at designer boutiques when they could be getting the same or comparable items at a much lesser cost if they only shopped at TJ Maxx or Marshalls.

According to TJ Maxx & Mashalls, here are 5 reasons why off-price is the way to shop:

  1. Buying Power – Our merchandise strategy can be summed up in two words – opportunistic buying. While other retailers buy merchandise several times a year, our buyers travel to market over forty weeks a year, sourcing from 10,000 vendors in 60 countries. These wide and frequent market trips allow us to buy closer to need and be smarter about trends. Also, because we are making deals closer to need, we are in a good position to negotiate a better price with vendors, and pass those savings along to our customers.
  2. Unbelievable Savings – Today more than ever our buyers can negotiate even better prices with vendors due to many factors: department stores planning their inventories much lower, overbuying and then canceling orders, or designers overproducing. All these things allow us to deliver the same merchandise sold in department stores, at the same time, at much lower prices to our customers.
  3. Product Quality – At T.J. Maxx and Marshalls our values extend to the important partnerships we have with our vendors. The vast majority of our merchandise is sourced directly from top designers and manufacturers. Over 95% of merchandise at T.J Maxx and Marshalls is the same first quality items that you would find at a department or specialty store at the same time.
  4. Fresh Merchandise – While department stores only receive new merchandise seasonally, our stores receive more than 10,000 new items each week. When you shop at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, you’re bound to find a new, differentiated selection of merchandise with every shopping experience.
  5. No Sale, Ever – Our reputation has been built on offering our customers an ever-changing selection of brand name family apparel at great values every day. We know customers are bombarded with “sales” and savings messages all the time. We try to keep it simple for them by offering great values every day. There is no need to wait for a sale or clip coupons.

So if you’re looking for great items at an affordable price, check out TJ Maxx & Marshalls. Your wallet will thank you!

WIN IT!

Thanks to these fine stores I have a $25 gift card for Marshalls & $25 to TJ Maxx to give away to one lucky shopper!

To enter:

  • Just mention in comments before midnight, June 6th your Spendervention story. That’s it!
  • A random winner will be selected and notified via email shortly thereafter.
  • The winner will then have 3 days to claim their prize.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What are your plans for the weekend?

Unfortunately, the original Mr. Linky isn’t available right now. Hope this works instead.

My Little Photographer

Filed under main blog, my family

Does anyone know how to mass delete photos taken with my iPhone? Apparently, Baby Bug got her hands on my phone and took 354 photos of random things around our home. I started deleting one by one but by the time I got rid of 20 pictures, I was done.

There has to be a way, right? I mean, this is the iPhone were talking about! It can tell you where you parked your car, it can accept a credit card payment, it can even find you an apartment to rent. It should be able to delete 354 photos at once.

Help?
