Warmer weather means lighter makeup in an effort to keep it all from sliding off your face (yeah, it happens pretty often here in Miami). Get ready for the bare-faced look and keep your skin looking fresh with one of these little treats: Montagne Jeunesse has a variety of individually packaged beauty masques for all kinds of skin needs. And the best part is, you can get one for free.

It’s now been ten days since the official start of summer, which means we are only a couple of days away from the Fourth and what always feels like the real start of bathing suit season. Normally, this would be the time when I’d break into a bit of a panicked sweat, considering this curvy Cuban body doesn’t play nice with teeny bikinis. But today also makes ten weeks since Lucy was born. And pushing a small person out of your body tends to make you see it quite differently.
Granted, I still have my hangups and I know I have a long way to go in terms of personal goals. But I also understand that these bumps and curves are a little more pronounced because, well, I made a baby. And that’s pretty damn fantastic. So I’ll bask in this new self-confidence as long as I can and hope it lasts long enough to get me through bathing suit season (and the rest of the year in Miami). In the meantime, I’ve picked out some one-piece numbers that actually feel pretty sexy. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Tanee GIVEAWAY and Swimsuit Wishlist after the jump.
I know it’s been a long week for everyone, what with the election and all that inevitable controversy Florida always brings to it (smh). So let’s end it on a good note with a quick Friday giveaway. If you’re not familiar with Bubble Buttons, here’s your chance to get acquainted.
Bubble Buttons are basically a sticker for that concave home button on your iDevice. I’ve been using it on my iPhone 4S for a little over a week now and can’t imagine going back to not having it; it actually makes my home button easier to use. Maybe it’s just me, but it feels more responsive. I usually have terrible luck with home buttons, so this has been a great little save for me. At only $4.95 per six-pack, it’s a great little fix with a lot of personality (check mine out in the pic above).
You can win your own six-pack today by: 1) Leaving a quick comment here with your preferred choice (Yummy Pack or Mustache Pack) and 2) Liking the Bubbles & Ink Facebook page if you haven’t already. Simple as that. I’ll announce the winner here at the end of the day. Contest ends at 5:00 p.m. ET.
You can also win an iPad 2 from Bubble Buttons by going to their Facebook page and liking them to get all the contest details. Best of luck to everyone with all these freebies!
UPDATE: Thanks so much to everyone who entered! Congratulations to our two winners, Vanessa Rocha and Jenny Lee Lewis! Please message me on Facebook to claim your prize!
Nothing softens the blow of a Monday morning like the promise of free stuff. This week, I’d like to start by giving you all the opportunity to win the fabulous hand jewelry I’m wearing below, courtesy of Amorium Jewelry, a Miami-based company that sells hand-made items originating from Turkey. (You might have seen their other hot items, like the be-jeweled purple skull ring, on my Instagram feed.)
While some pieces can be found in six stores around the city (Essence Boutique and RikRak Brickell, to name a few), you don’t have to be a local to shop; most items can be found on their website and you can win by doing the following:
2) Visit the Amorium Jewelry website and leave a comment on this post telling me which piece you liked the best.
That’s it! Contest ends Friday, July 20, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern. Winner will be selected at random. Good luck!
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who entered and CONGRATS to our winner, Yvette!
Happy Friday, everyone. Today’s giveaway comes courtesy of ULINX Modular Jewelry. Mine came in last week (see pic, bottom bracelet). The coolest thing about these bracelets is that they’re magnetic so they don’t need any sort of adjustment. In fact, you can play with them and rearrange them and just make them work for you at your whim. I also loved the fact that you can design your own, so you can pick your style, color, and extras.
For this giveaway, one reader will get their own personalized ULINX bracelet by doing the following:
1) Go to the ULINX site and design your own bracelet.
2) Save the design under your name.
Contest ends one week from today on Friday, June 15th at 5:00 p.m. Eastern. Good luck!
P.S. Did you spot the hidden Pomeranian?
UPDATE: Congrats to our winner, Nicole!
Since I’ll be gone for a week, I leave you with freebies and a new place to shop. I found the little guy on the left on Pixics.com, a new online shop for all things “indie, retro, vintage, and geek.” They’ve got some really great out-of-the-ordinary apparel, accessories, and gifts (like the Fuluto figurine in this post) for very reasonable prices with FREE SHIPPING to all orders in the United States and Canada, so it’s worth a trip to the site.
Also, check out their Giveaway page for details on how to win your very own Twitter Bird figurine (he’s adorable, promise). The contest is going on now through February, so don’t miss out.
You can also follow Pixics on Facebook and have even more chances to win. Just “like” the Pixics Facebook page, tell a friend about the giveaway, and share the giveaway on your Facebook page. You will qualify for the giveaway once your friend submits their own entry.
The Pixics giveaway officially ends on February 29th, so get on it! Best of luck to you all and happy shopping! See ya when I get back from Buenos Aires!!
