Aveeno "Oat Bundle" Giveaway

Please don't forget to enter Aveeno "On the Fly Fix-Up" Giveaway. It ends November 4, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST (Eastern time).


Happy Oatmeal Day!!! :)

Today, October 29th, 2012, is the National Oatmeal Day. Most of us eat oatmeal or some type of oat in our cereal or bread. Did you know there are many other uses of oat other than food? Here are some examples.


If you look at Use 4: Oat For Moisture, oat is recommended by most dermatologists for dry skin. It provides 24 hours moisturization for softer, healthier looking skin. Since winter is soon approaching, I know for a fact my skin will get dry and will need moisture. If you're like me, you will need products with oats to moisturize your skin. Aveeno has been generous to offer two "Oat Bundle" Giveaway to my readers! Each package includes...
Daily Moisturizing Lotion

'This naturally nourishing lotion contains Natural Colloidal Oatmeal blended with rich emollients and is now proven to help skin build a "moisture reserve," so skin can replenish itself. Its fast-absorbing formula helps prevent and protect dry skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and naturally healthy looking.

Its breakthrough formula combines Natural Colloidal Oatmeal - long known to soothe skin - with a unique blend of natural oils and emollients, to help replenish skin's natural moisture.

It's lightly fragranced, soap free, dye-free and hypoallergenic so it's gentle enough for sensitive skin."

Aveeno "On the Fly Fix-Up" Giveaway

Aveeno has offered me an opportunity to host a wonderful giveaway, "On the Fly Fix-Up", on my blog. Not only that, they are not only going to give one but three prizes to my readers. Before I talk about how to enter, let me tell you about the giveaway. If you're like me, you're wondering what is the title referring to.

"After a day on the job, the idea of heading out for a night of fun might be a bit daunting - especially if you aren't sure how to start freshening up your look. Make the transition from day to night as easy as 1,2,3 with some products from the AVEENO® Arsenal."

I took this from the e-mail. I thought they explained it a lot better than I could ever have.
1. Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo: "Starting with your locks - they might be in need of a little TLC or life after a day of work. The Aveeno Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo rejuvenates locks removes excess oil and impurities to help boost volume."

This is a great product in-between washes, as well as, times you are in a hurry and cannot take a shower/bath. This get rids of oil and add volume.
2. Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes: "To put your best face forward, refresh your skin with the Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes. These gentle wipes soothe and cleanse, removing dirt, oil, makeup and even mascara - powered by ACTIVE NATURALS Feverfew, they help leave sensitive skin feeling balanced."

I already reviewed these wipes. They clean your face and it's great for times when you do not have time to wash up before before.
3. Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer: "After you rejuvenate the skin, apply the Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (in light and medium) with ACTIVE NATURALS Total Soy Complex to blend away imperfections. In fact, these tinted moisturizers are formulated with natural light-reflecting minerals that immediately enhance skin's natural radiance."

Not only does it enhance your skin, it protects with SPF.

Los Angeles Korean Festival 2012

Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile! The last couple of weeks has been crazy with my dad's birthday (family get together) and his birthday trip to Korea (helped him prepare for the trip). He left Thursday and it gave me the weekend to rest. It was really nice just staying in my pj's and not doing anything! :)

Last weekend, Los Angeles had their annual Korean Festival. I've been going almost every year since I can recall. The last time I blogged about the event was in 2010. You can check out my post if you like. I went last year as well, but I didn't stay long. The people I went with wanted to leave. I made sure I went this year with someone who has similar interest as myself. I had fun that we made it a weekend thing, we went both Saturday and Sunday. Since I had so much fun, I forgot to take pictures of the event and the food I ate. Sorry! Just imagine tons of booths from eating, selling, to crafts. I'm going to post the things I got.

Saturday, October 6:
I can't remember which booth we got the fan from. The seller saw us fanning our face with paper, and told us they have a better fan than paper. They gave us this wooden fan. I like the design and the concept of the fan, but in all honesty I wouldn't pay money for this. The quality isn't that great.
Then we went to the lotus blossom booth, and I made the pink one (right one). My friend is into crafts just like myself. We wanted to make more, but they told us we can only make one. Then the monk offered us papers if we volunteer. We ended up volunteering for couple of hours to get papers (we got green, pink, red, orange, and yellow), as well as, made the purple and flower during the time. They were kind enough they even gave us lunch.
I added the pink and purple lotus blossoms with the white one I made in 2010. It's actually hanging from my ceiling. I actually might throw the white and make a new one with the papers we got. I'm thinking yellow. What do you think?
There even had a booth from Pechanga Casino. I got a free fan (I took to work because there has been two days this summer where the a/c broke) and a key chain lighter. I'm pretty impressed with the lighter. It's extremely bright!
Then we went to Verizon booth and spun the wheel. I got a cup and pen. The pen will go to good use since I lose pens often in my purse.
I got baby samples even though I don't have babies. I'll use it on myself.
Then at the udon booth, I spun and won myself two udons. I wanted the grand prize because they had cute chopsticks with the two udons.
At the children's section, I made a topper and flower. The flower will come in handy. I can make it my next project.
The Hanmi Bank was giving out wet wipes. I put it in my bag and pull them out whenever I need one. Also if you play their baseball game, they give away a prize. You get a choice of baseball, blue, or pink pig. I wanted the blue piggie, but they ran out. They only had the pink one, but I'm still happy.
Then we got our free clay the professional made that day. The hardest part was carrying this around while it was still wet!
I picked this one because of the heart shaped top.

Sunday, October 7:
We went back Sunday for this tote. We wanted to make one on Saturday, but they closed early. You get to paint your own tote but unfortunately, it was a different design.

Other than getting the tote, we ate as well. I wished I took pictures. I need to be better. My bad!
