#win items from a line of back-to-school locker décor! LockerLookz 10/15

Check out this amazing line of back-to-school locker décor!
This company is the original fashion locker décor company (though their success has unfortunately brought about unworthy competitors who are going to great extents to copy our client’s look. Don’t be fooled: LockerLookz is the only one with top quality and great looks, and a patent on their Chandelier!) Find your closest retailer!
Giana designed this locker! It's cute!
Now, play around and design your own locker online on the company’s website with all the new colors and products available! They added a new share function so girls can bounce their ideas off their BFFs before designing on a design. How fun!
What my locker would look like, cute, huh?
 Everything is attached with magnets, not adhesives
 Reusable and moveable
 Easy to install
 Designed to be mixed and matched to create your own  custom look
 A fun way to express yourself with the following items:

How Gianas Locker looks with her things in it! Thanks Locker Lookz!!!

You know what I loved best? I loved that you can buy a TotalLookz package OR you could make your locker funny, and unmatching. That is the style. I knew Giana would like hers best all mixed up, but I would do all black and white and a little pink, maybe a pink rug.. It makes me wish I had a locker to decorate!!! Giana's school didn't want me in there taking pictures of the lockers, because it's in the gymnasiums locker room, but I took pictures of the stuff she got!

What will you win? 
One wallpaper and 2 accessories of the winner’s choice, from a preset list of what they have the greatest inventory of. An excel sheet will be emailed to you, which you will open, tic choices off of, and save- Email back!  Super Simple!
In the box, I think the black chandelier and the blue/aqua chandelier are awesome too!
Lights on.
Lights off.
Curtains are really just thick cardboard., the tassels are real though, and really pretty!
The bow magnet and key magnet
Giana poses with bow & key magnets, they match her dress!
Out of the package
The wallpaper. It's non-adhesive, and magnets too, so she can use it for as long as she can take care of it! :)
  I love these, and wish they had them when I was in school. I think these items would make the perfect gift for the little diva, fashionista, or hard to shop for pre-teen in your family this Christmas! It's definitely something middle school and jr high school kids would like!

Awesome sauce! The funniest & freshest T-shirts! Snorgtee review & 3giveaway 10/15

Like many other sites with funny t-shirts, SnorgTees is another must see! Some of the shirts are hilariously funny and unique to only their site, some even user contributed, and you can earn 150$ plus a free tee if they accept your design! I like many on the site, but just narrowing it down to a few was a task. Here the winners (in my book) are without further ado --
One of Noah's fave shirts : The Chicken or the Egg
The shirt we got was the : I Pull Out
My fave shirt: You look funny doing that
Gigi loved this shirt: Cactus Hugs
Their shirts are priced around $20, most are $19.95 but they do have sales, of course!

Noah always gets T-shirts from me, I never know what else to get him .. He probably hates that that's 80% of my gifts to him, but if so, he needs to learn how to speak up!!!   :)
Funny shirts do make great birthday gifts. But they have more than just shirts, they also have ..

Giveaway for one winner (in US/Canada) to
receive one free shirt of their choice. Let me know what design, size,
and gender preference for the shirt you'd like, along with your

#TrySnapshot #giveaway 9/30 SEP - Progressive Snap shot evaluates Hard braking - my 30 day trial has passed

As some of my readers, and definitely my friends and family know- I joined the progressive Snapshot Blogger Challenge. Snapshot is a little device that plugs into your car. It tracks your vehicle usage via a voluntarily-installed device to give you the opportunity to save up to 30% on your Progressive insurance plan.
It beeps at you occasionally when you turn your car on, and when you hard brake. The important thing to know about the Progressive Snapshot device is once it's plugged in, do not touch it or disturb it. Do not unplug it until your 30 day "snapshot" is over. After using the device for at least 30 days, Progressive may give you a discount up to 30% based on your driving report, which you can access via your Progressive account online. Once your policy renews, your discount is finalized.

Hard Braking --
Hard-brake events are a leading indicator of potentially unsafe driving behavior. These events could be the near-miss of an accident, the result of dangerous or slippery roads, a driver getting cut off in traffic, or an accident itself—all things that a driver shouldn't do!
That's why Progressive wants to reward you for NOT doing this!
When you brake, you are turning gas into heat and brake dust. Since burning the least amount of gas is our game, the brake pedal is our enemy. Braking indicates that you have accelerated more than you really needed to.

What does the data mean for my insurance?
Time of day: The reason Progressive tracks what time of day you is simple: if you drive during peak hours for accidents, such as between midnight and 4 a.m., the likelihood you’ll get in an accident is much higher than if you drive during off-peak hours. If the majority of your driving is during less accident-prone hours, you may see a larger discount.
Miles driven: Many insurance companies ask drivers to supply this data, meaning that drivers track their own mileage and report that amount. Because Progressive tracks mileage digitally through the Snapshot device, the chance of an accident can be better predicted. The general idea is that the more miles you drive, the more likely you’ll get into an accident.
Hard brakes: A hard brake is when the car’s speed decreases at a rate greater than 7 mph per second. More hard brakes per day may indicate less cautious driving. Progressive will give higher discounts to drivers with fewer hard brakes.

You know, I started to accept this a challenge to see what would happen if I drove like a teenager, and I pondered over hard braking constantly, just driving around the neighborhood to see if I could get a "bad rate" but if you watch the video, Progressive claims your rate will NOT go up. Plus, you don't even have to have Progressive to try it out. You don't have to switch your insurance to see what your quote would be, or because you plug the device in. but you are supposed to mail it back after the 30 day period is passed, so don't throw away the box it comes in!
I didn't have to try to make it beep at me, because apparently I hard brake a lot. I do like that this device has made me aware of the fact that I do this, so hopefully I can be more aware and correct the problem.
I would save 5% was my total savings prediction.
