July Reviews and Giveaways - Winner Takes All!

*** Thank you for entering, but this giveaway is now closed***
Please see the bottom of the post for the winner's details.

It's that time of the month ... well not actually THAT time of the month, though quite possibly it could almost be and that would possibly explain why I have been a tired old cranky cow the past few days, but then again that could just be because I am simply just a cranky tired old cow.

Whatever. We have hit the gutter so let's start again shall we?

It's the time of the month where I share with you some of the products I have been fortunate enough to be sent to try over the past month. The way it works is I pick my faves andthen you guys a chance to win them for yourself. Yay!

As the 'Winner takes All' kind of competition has been a huge success these oast few months, I have decided to stick with that methodology ... cause its our blog and we can do whatever we please right?


Let's get this party started as I fear that cranky cow could surface again at any moment today.


My God I LOVED this stuff!

It smells as good as it looks and feels even better. I'm also a sucker for some gorgeous packaging too, so this was a winner on all accounts in my book.

Frank Coffee Scrub is what it says it is - a coffee scrub for your body that isn't designed to just smell heavenly. You rub the roasted ground Arabica  coffee onto your body in the shower, leave it to dry for 5-10 minutes and you actually FEEL good. Like REALLY good.

The coffee targets cellulite, the brown sugar and sea salt smooths your bumps and lumps, the almond oil moisturises and improves your skin tone, the vitamins and minerals do good stuff for you body, and the orange essence simply smells divine.

Does it get any better than this? I think not!

You can buy Frank online at their website here and make sure you sign up to like their Facebook page here.

One lucky winner will win 3 months supply of Frank Body Scrub ( 3 packets which will last 3 months if you use the scrub 1-3 times per week).

You want this. No you REALLY want this!


As you know I am a HUGE fan of the Method products and the hand washes are at the TOP of my list when it comes to favorites in their range.

I use different fragrances in different rooms and if you ever come to my house, I will most likely make you sniff a bottle or two... cause I like you to smell nice things....

Again - whatever!

I have harped on and on before about the good side of Method, the fact that its is environmentally friendly, family friendly, green and clean friendly.... I'm harping again aren't I?

The Method hand washes currently come in 8 incredible fragrances that all have a gorgeous hue to them, so there is a fragrance to suit everyone and a colour to suit any decor. Yes it is a plus that you can co-ordinate your hand washes with your home decor.

Ahhh its the small things that get us by right? :)

The luck winner of this month's giveaway will win a pack of 5 Method Hand washes so you can sniff and clean and sniff and clean until the cows come home.

You can purchase the Method hand washes here (which are on sale until 31st July) here and stay up to date on their special offers via Facebook here.

I'm a sucker for anything that says anti-aging on the packaging, but I quickly get the poops if it doesn't live up to its promise.

This serum hasn't disappointed me at all so far.

The people at MITOQ told me that the skin cell life cycle is 4 to 6 weeks and that it can take this long to see the full effect of MITOQ. I have only been using it for a bit over a week and I can see an improvement already, so I'm kinda of excited about getting to the 6 week mark.

It works by protecting something called the mitochondria in your cells, which is a fancy name for the part of our cells that are responsible for generating cellular energy that keeps them functioning optimally. In other words, it boosts collagen and elastin productions which means younger firmer and more radiant skin.

You likey? I likey!

The lucky winner will receive a 50ml bottle of MITOQ valued at $180.00. But if you want to try it for yourself and can't wait to see if you are the winner, you can purchase MITOQ from their website here or follow them on Facebook to stay up to date with the latest information relating to skin care technology.


It needs no introductions, its chocolate! And even better it is CADBURY Chocolate ... or Marvellous Creations to be precise.

OK I'll admit that I wasn't overly enthused at the inclusion of Banana Candy in the latest Marvellous flavour - Banana candy, peanut drops and choc biscuit. I'm not a big banana candy fan, but HELLOOOO my lovely new chocolate friend, I like you .. a lot!

The banana candy flavour is most definitely there, but subtle enough to not be overpowering. And so the kids loved it, the husband loved it, I even loved it, and we cast our vote to save it.

Yep, you need to do that if you like it. Vote to save it that is.

You can try the new flavour for yourself and then cast your own vote of yay or nay here.

This month's winner will receive 10 Big 290gm blocks all for yourself. YOURSELF!
Now if that doesn't send you straight to Joyville, I don't know what will!


Alright, on to the subject of feet. *Shiiiiiivveer*

Sorry, but this is a touchy subject for me as I am totally foot phobic, especially when it comes to dry icky feet.

True story ... once upon a time my husband's feet were so dry and cracked from a summer of sun and surfing and so I offered to soak them and scrub them for him. What WAS I thinking?

We got through the soaking part easily enough, but when it came time to the scrubbing, I threw up. No really I THREW UP.

End of story.

Now if he had these Milky foot socks, we may have had a happier ending.

These are a little bit quirky, but A LOT effective. The special 3D socks contain a foot treatment and the idea is you simply put your feet in them, sit down with your feet placed on the ground and read a book or watch some TV for 45 - 60 minutes and then take them off and wash your feet. Within 7 days all that dead dry awful skin peels off and you are left with baby smooth feet.

It actually really works! Though I am not going to go into detail about my feet peeling as I may get all queasy on you and pass out.

You can then use the Foot Care Essence to protect your feet and keep them smoother and softer for longer.

With Spring only a smidgen over a month away now, we have to have our feet ready for Spring sandals, and hey, let's face it - any excuse to sit down for an hour is an added bonus.

You can get Milky Foot from Priceline and other Pharmacies and they have a Facebook page you can like here.

Our July Giveaways Winner will receive a pack of Milky Foot Socks and a bottle of Foot Care Essence to start getting your feet Spring ready.

Last but not least is the new range of Nudie Juices for kids.

We are already Nudie fans (of all kinds) in this family and these new kids juices were a MAJOR hit with the kids.

They come in 4 flavours - Nothing but 2.6 Oranges, Nothing but Tropical Juice, Nothing but Lemonade and Nothing but 2.5 Apples. The Nothing but Tropical has now been added to the school lunch shopping list by the kids and the Nothing but Lemonade may just make it onto there just for me .... yes I liked it that much.

They fit perfectly in the lunch box and being 100% Juice with no added sugar or numbers and names you can't say, you can be comfortable that you are giving your kids something that is actually good for them.

Just don't tell THEM that.... it takes the fun out of it!

For more information on the Nudie range, check out the Nudie Website here or their Facebook Page here and join the Nudie revolution.

kids nudie RRPs at $6.99 for a six pack and is available from Woolworths in the chilled section and in selected caf├ęs and corner stores now.

The winner will receive a pack containing 12 Kids Nudie Juices (3 of each flavour) and a Nudie magnet set.

So there you go folks, the cranky tired cow managed to put together this post without so much as growling even once at anyone. I may or may not have been medicated by some banana candy chocolate, but I guess you'll never know.

Now get cracking and get entering. You don't want to miss out on your chance to win this month's Giveaway pack full of lots of Indulgent goodies ... most of which are actually for you to enjoy. *Fist Pump*
