Back to School with Walmart and HP + Giveaway

The school year is now underway here in NC and the supply list is longer than ever. Each year we try to think outside of the box when it comes to supplies that will help our daughter with her studies. Our store of choice is Walmart for two main reasons, it is close to home and we can find everything we need in one store! Walmart has a wonderful electronics department and they carry HP products! Some of my favorite HP items are the HP Pavilion dv6-7029wm Entertainment PC and the HP Deskjet 3052a e-All-in-One Printer! Walmart also carries the HP XL Ink Cartridges which I love because they save me money on my printing!


HP Pavilion dv6-7029wm Entertainment PC - The HP Pavilion dv6-70929wm is sure to be the best entertainment PC on campus. With a sleek, tapered metal design, it's easy to pick up. And with cool features like Beats Audio™ amplified by quad speakers and a subwoofer, it's tough to put down.










HP Deskjet 3052a e-All-in-One Printer – With an HP e-Print wireless enabled printer you can now print from your smartphone or tablet from virtually anywhere! Your children can send photos and assignments from the classroom right to your HP ePrint printer at home by simply sending an email. This printer is also great for teens going away to college! You can share photos and recipes with them in their dorm room. Stay in touch with your students with HP ePrint












HP XL Ink Cartridges – Back-to-school means lots of printing! These cartridges fit in your printer like HP's regular cartridges, but they hold more ink! The best part is they are now available at Walmart and Walmart.com/HPink so you can stock up on ink when you buy groceries. You can save up to
40% on printing with HP's XL ink cartridges*. That's a great value any mom can appreciate!

I am very partial to HP products because they have never let me down!  I don't know about other moms, but I print a LOT of coupons and my daughter prints off her projects, reports and lots of photos!  These HP XL ink cartridges are a life saver!

Carmex Lip Balm and Tote Review & Giveaway

My daughter and I love lip balm, and the one we grab most often is Carmex.  We love all the choices that Carmex provides, and it has never failed us.  The sun causes my lips to blister quickly if I go without some type of lip balm with SPF.  Carmex keeps my lips soft and blister free thanks to an SPF of 15!  

Carmex has lip tints that will add color to your smile, and they have original as well as some wonderful flavors.  My favorite flavor has been cherry, until now.  Carmex has added a new member to the family...Pomegranate!  I LOVE it!  The only problem I have is that it is also my daughter's favorite, so if I want it, I have to track it down in her bedroom.

I am a member of the Carmex Blog Squad and I received a wonderful gift package from them which included the NEW Pomegranate Lip Balm.  My package also included an awesome yellow tote and five other lip balm sticks.  My daughter and I quickly gave them all a try and came to the conclusion that they were all winners.  

Want to win a Carmex bag of your own as well as 6 Lip Balms?  Simply enter on the rafflecopter form below!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

WOW!  The summer has flown by and in a matter of days, kids will be going back to school.  If you are like me, you have started shopping for your kids.  Between school supplies, clothes and shoes, shopping can take quite a while and can be very expensive.  One place that can save you time and money is Famous Footwear!  Their stores are not overwhelming and yet they carry hundreds of brands and thousands of styles that can satisfy even the the pickiest of kids or teens.  They understand that their customers want to get in and out without a lot of hassle, so they pride themselves on helping you accomplish that goal.
