Caltrate Gummy Bites

Hello friends,

If you recall, last year my GYN diagnosed me with being Vitamin D Deficient, so I started taking Vitamin D pills.  If you are anything like me, you don’t like taking hard-to-swallow pills and may take softgels instead.

I had seen Gummy Vitamins on the shelves at our local drug stores but always felt they were a bit juvenile for a woman of my age!

Thanks to @Smiley360, I was able to receive ten sample packs to review.  Included with the samples was a $2.00 off coupon and a Pedometer, which I wear at the office as a reminder to get up and walk, I definitely don’t want a “blogger’s butt”.

Caltrate Gummy Bites

These Caltrate Gummy Bites are Calcium & Vitamin D3 Supplements which supports strong bones, another health concern for aging women.  The Gummy Bites are not those stick-to-your-teeth bites which I though they would be, you know something similar to candy gummy worms.  

They come in three flavors, Black Cherry, Orange and Strawberry and have now become part of my daily vitamin regiment. 

Anyone over the age of 13 can take these supplements 2x per day with or without food but make sure to first check with your physician before taking any new medication or supplement.

Caltrate Gummy Bites

Caltrate Gummy Bites can be purchased online @Amazon.com or at your local Walgreens, Walmart, Target or CVS.  Click here to receive your $2.00 off coupon.

I received this product for free for the purpose of my review.  Opinions are 100% my own.  I am not a health care professional so please check with your physician before taking any over-the-counter products.

Hello Friends & Welcome to the Weekend Wind-Down Party #6

valentines day card 2013

Hopefully you are not in a sugar coma from eating too many sweets but are home relaxing or preparing for a fun-filled maybe sun-filled weekend.  Truth be told, I am not a big proponent of Valentine’s Day.  The thriftinista in me knows that tomorrow all the candy at Walgreens will be 50% off – 2 boxes for the price of 1!

Anywho, let’s get this party started with this week’s featured posts. Please feel free to copy and paste the button onto your blog page as it will also be featured on our Pinterest Page.

Merry Christmas Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I trust you all had a wonderful weekend and I know most of you are still on holiday which probably made it even better.  Did you hit the stores and do a little more shopping or did you just stay home and relax?  

I went back to work on Thursday but took off on Friday and it was mah-va-lous, I put on a pair of leggings, a tunic and no makeup, it was great.

Christmas 2013 was very nice, a little quieter than in previous years but never the less it was nice being together as a family.  None of us got up before 10, and after opening our gifts we spent a lazy day watching “A Christmas Story“, eating and napping.

Christmas 1

This was my husband’s first try at stocking stuffing and I had to laugh because mine looked as though it threw up a scarf!  The Moscato was a gift from Pockets Discount Liquors and I will popping it open on New Year’s Eve.

Christmas 2

A stadium chair for those hard bleachers at Malik’s wrestling matches; Philadelphia Eagles car mats for Tayair and another jewelry box to help me organize the top of my dresser.

Christmas 3

Tayair received a US Polo Assn jacket and the Polaroid A8 Tablet that I purchased from Walgreens.

Christmas 4 Baltimore Raven’s pajama bottoms, a US Polo Assn jacket and heavy duty car mats for al-Malik.

Christmas 5

Socks (thrown a-la A Christmas Story), Old Spice and a Fireproof Safe

Christmas 6

A bathrobe and a Gillette Set

Christmas 7

 Earrings, animal printer slippers and a watch from my mini-men

Christmas 8

Warm tops and Hot Sauces

Christmas 9

Gift Cards and Stockings full of sweets and a toothbrush!

Christmas 10

Hubby would love for me to wear the scarf this way…but I say, “no way”!

Christmas 11

Some things never change!

  How was your Christmas?

Last Minute Shopping at The “W”

‘Twas 4 days before Christmas and all through the house not a gift was purchased…no not one…nothing even wrapped.  Was I in a panic…no, not me…no mall trip to navigate no whoa is me!  I jumped in the Sonata and drove down the street, parked and got out and entered the big “V”…oh I mean the “W” Walgreens.  

Long gone are the days of Santa and toys, I now have mini-men, they are no longer little boys.  Safety and Life Skills are things that they need, a job application and gas money will be under the tree!  ‘Tis the season for a few little gifts so they’ll have something to unwrap when they finally roll out of bed….after 12 noon if that!

Gifts from Walgreens

Pockets and Walgreens before Christmas 053

 A Polaroid Tablet for Son #1, he can take notes in class, read a book or just have fun.

Old Spice

Wrestling, lifting, or just watching TV…they definitely both needed one of these!

Pockets and Walgreens before Christmas 058

Son #2 is up texting all night so he needs help in getting up and a Bluetooth for no talking while driving (I know it didn’t rhyme this time).

Docking Station and Alarm Clock What to get hubby…oh boy…what does he need…nothing really, except maybe me!  Can’t go wrong with a gift card…one or maybe two and with Walgreen’s big selection that wasn’t too hard to do.

Pockets and Walgreens before Christmas 060

 

Food and drinks and a trip to Lowe’s will fit the bill, added a little Dove Body Wash and all is chill.

Last minute gifts are sure to be found and if you need any assistance just look around, or maybe someone will greet you as soon as you walk in the door.

 I am so glad to finally be done, no stress…no hassle…actually it was kinda fun!

Now it’s time to head home and wrap up these gifts and place them neatly under our beautifully decorated tree!

If you have any last minute gift buying to do head over to your local Walgreens as most stores are open until midnight.

Happy Holidays!

Dickinson's Towelettes Review

The Sugar n Spice Voxbox that I received from Influenster contained a box of Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes. These towelettes are suppose to lift dirt and remove impurities from the skin without irritation.  They contain 3 simple ingredients, Witch Hazel, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice and Sodium Benzoate which makes them oil free, non-drying and can be used on all skin types.

I’ve never had problem skin and only use makeup removal cloths so I asked my oldest son to test them as he suffers from occasional breakouts and teenage acne.  Unlike my youngest, he is not particular with his grooming products so he agreed to help with the review.  He used one towelette each morning for a week and this was his report:

Likes:

  • didn’t irritate or sting his face
  • didn’t make his face dry
  • noticed his face was clearing
  • great size to use on face and neck
  • packaged great for travel

Dislikes:

  • the smell, it didn’t stink but didn’t smell that great either -(Witch Hazel has always had a distinct odor)

OOTD – Penney's Peplum

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

Hubby’s day was nice and I want to thank you for all the birthday well wishes.  I didn’t get the Walgreen’s Gift Card but did cook a wonderful meal, we had baked salmon, stuffed clams, steamed potatoes and coleslaw, dessert was a Lemon Meringue Pie which is his favorite.

I had hoped for warmer weather to wear this sleeveless BisouBisou Peplum top, but it’s a rainy drab day so I added a lightweight cardigan.

1st Year Blogiversary

February 9th is the 1st year Blogiversary of DeDivahDeals!

champagne bottle

I began my journey on Blogspot.com with this post (here) …BORING…a single picture of two bottles of Sally Hansen nail polish and 3 packs of Salon effects clearly marked for clearance from Walgreens…no descriptions…nothing…comments…none…just crickets – oh what a difference a year makes.

The first post to receive a comment and a “like was 40 days later, “Goodwill Deals – Gucci from the 90’s” from Lesley Carter of Bucket List Publications and my girlfriend Wanda, that stroked my ego so I continued purchasing and posting.

As time progressed I read and learned more and found my niche, but more importantly I realized the most rewarding aspect of blogging was the interaction between great virtual friends and followers.

In your own way, each of you have touched my heart and filled a void in such a glorious way that I could never truly express how I feel, so please accept my heart felt THANK YOU…a SMOOCH…and this big ole bag of MONEY…spend it wisely!

 

thank you

“Night at the W” – Red Carpet Glamour at Walgreens

Tonight was the premier of “Night at the W” and I attended the festivities at Walgreens store #11055 in Middletown. Without fanfare, paparazzi or flashing bulbs I made a grand entrance through the automatic doors and was greeted by the ever smiling and radiant sales associate Anna Marie (silly me).

Image

Tim Gunn’s “The Red Carpet Guide to Glamour” featured Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss, Clump Crusher Mascara and Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm; Pantene Pro-V AgeDefy Hair Treatment; Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips and Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo. The arrangements showcased each product along with money saving coupons.

I purchased a bottle of Covergirl Outlast Nail Gloss and look forward to tomorrow night’s mani/pedi. I hope you to had an opportunity to attend this evening’s exciting event at your local Walgreens, but if not, check it out before your next “Red Carpet Event” – Smooches!
