Tanee Giveaway + Swim Wishlist

Tanee Tan Line Corrector Giveaway

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.

UPDATE: CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS PRISCILLA & FRANCESCA! Email me at ali@bubblesandink.com to claim your prize!

Tanee GIVEAWAY and Swimsuit Wishlist after the jump.

Friday Giveaway: Bubble Buttons

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!

Amorium Jewelry Giveaway

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.)

1) Like the Bubbles & Ink and Amorium Jewelry Facebook pages.

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!


ULINX Bracelet Giveaway

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.

3) Post your design to the ULINX Facebook page and tag Bubbles & Ink.

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!

éclos Skin Care Giveaway – #EclosBeauty

This post brought to you by éclos Skin Care. All opinions are 100% mine.

Though I’m usually loathe to being photographed sans makeup, I’ve made an exception for this post in appreciation to the good people at éclos for sending over a little kit for me to try out the nicest-smelling skincare products I’ve ever come across.

I’ve always been a bit lax with skincare because, thankfully, I’ve never really had blemishes or acne to take care of. But then I hit my thirties and realized I could no longer keep coasting – my dark circles were becoming more pronounced and there were little lines and spots I hadn’t noticed before. That basically heralded the end of what I’d hoped would be perpetually maintenance-free healthy skin – and the beginning of my quest to find the right products.

Truthfully, when this little box arrived from éclos, I had three different brands sitting in my bathroom, all sort of pulling their weight but not really doing anything to gain permanent residence. Without sounding like too much of an infomercial, once I actually tried the plant-based beauty line, I was convinced I’d keep them around for a long time.

If you’ve never heard of them before, éclos products are made with Plant Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple (Uttwiler Spätlauber), which has shown tremendous “ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin.”

I gave it a chance for a week and tried: the Facial Cleanser Skin Prep, Cellular Activator Face Serum, Moisture Therapy Regenerative Eye Cream, and the Instant Radiance Facial Scrub (use once daily, every other day). Aside from loving the way it smells (I wanted to eat it), the amazing thing about these products is that they don’t feel harsh on your skin like other cleansers and exfoliators I’ve tried. As I said before, I’m not really a fan of posting makeup-free pics, but I seriously think I’m a little more glow-y in the “after” pic, and the fact that my dark circles are pretty tame here does wonders for my self-esteem. Really. I feel as though I should be splashing water on my face while really upbeat music plays in the background.




One lucky reader will get a full éclos Skin Care kit to try for themselves by completing these two really easy tasks:

1) Leave a comment on this post telling me which product you’re most excited to try

2) Like the Bubbles & Ink Facebook page if you haven’t already

See? Easy. Contest runs through Thursday at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. Winner will be selected at random and announced on Friday morning. Best of luck to you all!

Freschetta Simply…Inspired

This post brought to you by FRESCHETTA®. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love pizza as much as the next gal, but make it free and that’s just a whole other level of greatness. The good people at FRESCHETTA® were kind enough to send over a coupon for a free sample of their new FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™. Honestly, frozen pizzas aren’t really my thing but I have to hand it to them – I’m quite impressed.

This particular line boasts eight flavors that sing to my foodie heart. It was hard to pick one from a lineup of potential suitors like Harvest Supreme, Classic Bruschetta, and Chicken Bianco, to name a few, but I finally went with the Rustic Pepperoni Pomodoro – I couldn’t resist the allure of gouda, shiitake mushrooms, and large pepperoni peaking out at me through that great little window in their new (and quite Green) FRESCH-TASTE SEAL™ packaging.

I’ve included an actual picture of the end-result. You can clearly see the amazing ingredients on a thin and crispy crust pie fresh out of the oven. And since it’s unfair that I’m showing off and can only provide you with pics on my blog, I’d like to share the wealth and send you a coupon to try a free FRESCHETTA® Simply Inspired pizza for yourself along with a bonus gift, a bamboo cutting board. Leave a comment on this post and you might be the lucky taster!

Also, if you’d like to keep up with FRESCHETTA® and their upcoming freebies and deals, be sure to “Like” them on Facebook.

Buon appetito!
