Lynn Osterkamp has written both fiction and non-fiction. The setting is where she lives in Boulder, Colorado. She provides wonderful imagery of her hometown. It made her characters seem more real since I know that the places are real.

Hugo Naturals Handcrafted Soap Energizing Grapefruit smells like juicy grapefruits. It's a wonderfully moisturizing soap. Left my hands feeling like I'd just used lotion. I will say my mom appreciated the grapefruit smell more than I did. Grapefruit being one of my least fave smells. But the soap itself was luxuriant and lathered well.

Luckily, now it can be. There is a new game called WeTopia. WeTopia is a similar platform to most social games. You get friends to help you build things in the game and unlock content as you level up. Only, this game is centered around giving Joy.
Your time is spent building your own town and when you collect from your buildings you gather Joy. This Joy is then sent by your own choosing to various projects. So, far the options are within the United States and Haiti. They are also planning to help charitable projects in Africa. So, you can choose whether you want to help build schools or give medical care.
The game itself is adorable. You build Joygrounds which essentially allow your town to grow bigger. Only most parts of the game aren't static. The children actually play on the swings and walk around your town. The stores are easily identifiable as having giant representations of their products on the top (the bakery has a cupcake, the fish market has a giant fish, etc).
I suggest that you check it out if you are already a user and game player of Facebook. I know that playing a game is not the best way to give to charity, however, if you're going to be online, like me, then you might as well spend your time giving back. I know I'll get sucked into playing games with my friends so I am choosing to use the one that is doing good.
As they say WeTopia allows you to "Play for Good". So, why not do good while you play? You're not going to miss Farmville when you can farm elsewhere. You can contribute to the growing number of hot meals and fresh water given to children. At the time of me writing this post the stats listed are:
Hot meals 246,885
Liters of Fresh water 1,353,299
Pairs of Shoes 2,149

Hugo Naturals All Over Lotion in Comforting Vanilla and Sweet Orange smells like orange butter cream frosting. Super duper yummy. As anything butter cream is a fave scent of mine this was wonderful. You can use it all over, even on your face. It's super rich and thick. A little goes a long way. The lotion soaks in quickly and leaves you feeling moisturized without feeling greasy at all.

But I can honestly say that the new Woolite Complete is fantastic. I used it on a regular load of laundry (jeans, sweats, tshirts and other things) and they all came out feeling brand new. I mean you know how brand new clothes feel the first time you wear them. They feel soft against your skin, at least to me they do. That's how the Woolite Complete works on my clothes. I absolutely love it.
I definitely recommend trying it out. There is a $2 coupon on Facebook that you can use. Receive a 20% discount and free shipping on your next order of Woolite® COMPLETE when you purchase on Amazon.com between 3/1/12 and 3/31/12. (Total discount combines 5% off promotional code plus 15% off Subscribe & Save option)

3 BBQ chicken CPK pizzas used (2) $1 coupons + Ad Q (making them $4.49 each) = $6.07
1 bag frozen peas $2.29 = 1.60
2 open nature sour creams 50% off $2.59 = 2 for $2.58
2 grands 2/5 GM .30/2 + Ad Q = $1.68
I used the 30% off coupon on frozen foods coupon too. Total was $12.25...and I just realized that one of the CPK coupons didn't scan. So I called and they'll give me a dollar back next time. So total should have been $11.25. I got the $2 cat for buying 3 CPK pizzas and the $5 frozen food cat too. It is working today!!
