Make Shopping More Rewarding with #CAARewards

What do you think of my new sandals?

I love them. Super comfortable, great for walking, and also cute. I bought them online from Naturalizer, to replace my three-year old pair of walking sandals, also from Naturalizer, that had finally walked their last step.

What I also love? I started my shopping experience at the CAARewards site, and entered through the CAA eStore. All I had to do was enter my membership number after clicking the link for By taking that one little detour, I not only got a great deal on my sandals on sale, I also earned 10% of my purchase back in CAA Dollars®. How cool is that?

What can I do with those CAA Dollars? Well, they are saved in my CAA member account, and they can be applied towards the cost of my membership renewal, CAA insurance premiums, travel booking, or travel merchandise purchases. The more you shop through the CAA eStore, the more Rewards you'll receive and the closer you'll get to earning free membership or your next vacation.

Personally, I'm a big fan of online shopping. I don't like crowds, and I really enjoy shopping in my pajamas. There's also the fact that shopping online tends to offer a better range of styles and sizes, so I'm more likely to find success in my search for that perfect item. Beginning my shopping experience at the CAA eStore is an easy first step. and it definitely pays off in the end.

Of course, there are many brick and mortar Partners as well, where you can shop in person and show your CAA member card to enjoy instant savings. Payless Shoe Source, for instance, offers 10% off regular priced merchandise, and Gap Outlet will give you 10% off everything - even sale items. 

September is coming sooner than any of us might want to think. Head on over to the CAARewards page and check out all the places you can save on those necessary back to school purchases. You'll be surprised at how quickly your rewards add up.

P&G Has Solutions for Those "Oh No!" Summer Hair Moments #PGMom {Giveaway}

How many times have you settled in at a backyard BBQ, wearing the sweetest little sundress, only to look down and see that crazy patch of hair you missed just above your ankle? You will see it all night once you've noticed it. Others probably will never notice it, but you will and it will drive you nuts. If you're like me, you'll be sure to comment on it and point it out to someone or other, because you can't stop focusing on it. But what if you had a secret emergency fix in your bag?

Meet the Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace. This is the first mini razor of its kind in Canada. It comes ready to travel with a convenient, portable compact case and a Venus Embrace blade cartridge. The easy-to-grip mini handle fits into any Venus blade cartridge, allowing you to choose your perfect match blades or switch it up with something seasonal such as Gillette Venus Spa Breeze cartridges with scented shaving gel bars. Throw it in your purse or gym bag, and don’t forget to pack it in your suitcase for family vacations. There’s no need for shave gel, just a splash of water guarantees that instantly smooth skin is a quick shave away. So, if you have this in your purse, just excuse yourself, slip into the bathroom and fix up your little "oh no" moment in no time. I love this convenience!

Not a good humid hair day
Of course, the heat and humidity can play havoc with our beautiful tresses as well. I will never complain about heat and humidity. I love it! But I do like to have some control over my hair. Vidal Sassoon has a couple of products specifically for this season - Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Waves Enhancer Spray and Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Waves Crème Pomade. The 7-in-1 wave enhancer spray allows for maximum styling so you can achieve that tousled, beach hair look with ease! After a quick spray, just apply the crème pomade for genius curl control, leaving hair soft, touchable and beautifully defined for up to 24 hours.

Treating your hair right and prepping it to withstand the humidity is a much better and more fashionable approach than my usual stand-by - the hair elastic and ponytail.

A Giveaway

One lucky Raising My Boys reader will receive these products to try themselves, valued at approximately $45 and including: Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace, Gillette Venus Spa Breeze cartridges, Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Waves Enhancer Spray, Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Waves Crème Pomade. Entries are via the Rafflecopter widget below and will be accepted until 12:00 midnight EDT, August 15. Giveaway is open to Canadian residents only. Best of luck!

WW - #DuckTapeBus w/linky

Boo and I were out running some errands the other day, and we came upon the #DuckTapeBus. It was a cool walk-through of all things Duck Tape, and an incredible display of the different designs of Duck Tape available. After we toured the bus we were able to make Duck Tape bracelets to bring home. It was a fun surprise for the day!
