Uprinting Business Card Giveaway!


Despite the digital age that we live in, if you are in business (or even blogging semi-casually) you should have plenty of business cards on hand at all times! You never know when one will come in handy. Just the other day I was asked for my card by a friend who knows me but wanted to pass it on AND I DIDN’T HAVE ANY ON ME! DUH!

This is where an affordable business cards printing company comes in handy. I like Uprinting because they offer several types and sizes of business cards. Right now I just have plain-jane standard cards but I’m really partial to the die-cut leaf shaped cards.

What do you think? What kind of cards do you like best? Think about it and then enter below for your chance to win a set of 250 premium die-cut business cards from Uprinting.

Conair Infiniti Pro Hair Dryer GIVEAWAY

A few weeks ago I posted about the sad fate of my 20+ year old Conair Hair Dryer. Well, great news, the fine folks at Conair have taken pity on me and sent a replacement dryer! One for me and another for one of you!

Check it out the “before” and “after”!

My new Conair Infiniti Pro Volume Boost Dryer positively gleams next to its predecessor, even in my lousy cell-phone pic:

There’s no doubt that this baby dries hair a LOT faster. I find myself using the WARM setting the most too, which I’m assuming is better for my hair than the near-scorching HOT on my old dryer. On top of that, I now have ground-fault protection built into the plug apparently. Score one for safety! :-D

My only minor complaint is that this sucker is heavy, at least compared to what I’ve been using for decades. But I guess that goes with the territory when you upgrade to an AC motor and ionic ceramic technology.

I have to admit to being a little perplexed by the attachments, especially the volumizing one. But Conair has some helpful videos linked on the product page. You can see one woman using the volumizer for refined curls and another woman with straighter hair using it to create volume. Then I found these on Youtube:

The orange dryer in the 2nd video is basically the same hair dryer except that model does not come with a volumizing pick. I’ve got some practicing to do but I’m going to have fun trying out new techniques.

So you want one too now, right? Conair sells this bad boy on its site for $59.99 but savvy shoppers can find it elsewhere (Amazon!) on sale for significantly less. Of course you’ll want to try your luck at winning one first! SEE FORM BELOW FOR ENTRY!

Rafflercopter Needs a Mascot Name: Win an Ipad2

I’ve read mixed reviews on Rafflecopter the past few months. I’ve even heard some people declare they won’t even enter a giveaway administered by the Rafflecopter widget. I personally don’t get why but to each their own.

But having run giveaways WITH AND WITHOUT Rafflecopter I can honestly say using Rafflecopter has made my life so much easier. It’s such an easy process to create, run, and finalize a giveaway with the Rafflecopter software.

On the other hand, as a person who enters giveaways from time-to-time, I’m much more inclined to complete giveaway entries when the blog is using Rafflecopter. One reason is that too many bloggers make it hard for you to find their twitter name, facebook page, etc. but when they use Rafflecopter this information is always just a click away.

So anyway, after lots of testing, Rafflecopter is celebrating it’s “birth” and you can join in! Try the system out below by entering to win an iPad 2. Tell them NicholeAnn.com referred you (that way if YOU win, I win too!) and then do any of the optional entries, like submitting a creative name for their mascot.
