Tom + Chee: America’s Freshest Franchise – win FREE food!


Ok, so when Tom + Chee announced it was opening in Omaha, I was excited. I mean grilled cheese and soup, how can you go wrong? Plus apparently there was a lot of hype because everyone and their mom (except me) saw the company founders on Shark Tank. But there was so much didn’t know that made it 10 times more amazing:

  • Everything is fresh – no blenders, no freezers – everything down to the salad dressings and meat rubs are made from scratch Same category but deserves its own nod – made from scratch, made to order MAC and CHEESE (my fave food if you couldn’t tell)
  • HEALTHY options – yep, surprise!
  • Gluten free and vegan options
  • TONS of vegetarian options
  • NO sugar added to the soups
  • TONS of options, including build your own
  • Crazy, amazing doughnuts that are NOT fried
  • Off the menu, daily special options you can find in their Facebook updates
  • The sandwiches are super filling, which I just didn’t expect, as are the awesome entrée salads

It’s off 145th and Maple, so personally for me, that a long drive but WORTH it. We got to try TONS of stuff, so get ready for some food porn!

Declutter Your House! (win some help, help others)

If you’re anything like me, you’re on a constant mission to declutter your home. No matter how much space I have or where I live, it’s an ongoing process. I also inherited a lot of stuff when my mom died, so there are totes upon totes to go through. But wouldn’t it be awesome (and motivating to get going) if someone was going to pick up your unwanted junk? And wouldn’t it be even better if your declutter process helped others out? Ta da! My fellow Omaha bloggers and I have found a solution for you.

AWA Can Help is a local junk removal, recycling, donation company. Their goal is to recycle or donate as much as they can from any of their junk removals. They partner with Goodwill for most things, although Cross Training Center and Heartland Hope Mission also benefit.

So here’s how we’re helping YOU declutter – a giveaway! Enter below to win a donation pickup/junk removal worth $165, which is 80-120 cubic feet. (You must live in the Omaha area; please do not include tube televisions in your donation unless you wish to pay recycling fees.) To give you an idea of size, a typical couch is about 50 – 60 cubic feet. AWA Can Help takes everything except hazardous materials.

Good luck and happy decluttering!

Go subtle or WOW with Orglamix: Review and Giveaway

When Cheri of Orglamix contacted me, I had honestly never heard of the brand. So, of course I went to check out the website immediately. Bam! I was wowed by the color selection. I am what many would call a “drama queen” so subtle colors have never been my thing. BUT I found you can go subtle or drama with these colors. More on that later.

Anyhow, I had the opportunity to choose three colors. Orglamix , in short, is a mineral makeup line. I was slightly nervous for two reasons. First, I have not been a fan of powder foundations and didn’t have high hopes for mineral eyeshadow. I just haven’t experienced the coverage or effect I desire. Second, being as messy as I am, I was worried I would use them once and bump, spill, buh bye!

And . . . bad me. Here are the 8 reasons why Orglamix defied my expectations:

1. Vibrant, gorgeous colors. They are true to what you see on screen (as close as is possible when comparing digital).

2. Variety. Generally when cosmetics companies group shadows based on eye color, you get the same one or two boring variations (for example I have green eyes, so it’s usually shades of gray or shades of purple.) Orglamix’s site gives you tons of options that work.

3. Omg they just smell amazing. What is in there???

4. I was shocked and super impressed to find out Orglamix is a one-woman show. I love an entrepreneur and I love small businesses. You go girl!

5. Cruelty free – love it!

6. NO SYNTHETIC INGREDIENTS. Yep you read that right.

7. Choose your adventure. I put together a trio of shades for Fall — Cranberry, Mandarin and Solar. Using the same exact color palette gave me the flexibility to go subtle or dramatic. Check it out!

And NOW you get a chance to win three colors of your choice!!
