Win Swag from Marvel’s The Avengers – GIVEAWAY!

Comic book movies used to just be a thing I felt like I was forced to go see… that’s until I realized something – I LOVE THEM! I can’t say that I’m a comic book buff, so I don’t have all of the backstory information like some people. When I head out to see any movie based on comic books, what I see is what I get. Now that we’ve made that clear… I absolutely CAN’T WAIT to see Marvel’s The Avengers. Having seen so many of the characters pop up in movies before, I feel like I already know some of these superheros… because I DO!

See? That’s what I’m talking about. How can resist those characters?!? The action?!? Even had a nice comedic undertone built in at the end just for me. ;)

I have to admit, I was a little slow to jump on The Avengers bandwagon. After listening to my friend Louise talk about it though, I got hooked! I just have a feeling that this movie is going to be one of those perfect balances of amazing action, great special effects, intense good guy versus bad guy battles, and of course the right dose of superhero comedy and one liners. (That really is one of my favorite things.) When I think about the cast alone, I can’t imagine who wouldn’t want to see The Avengers. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hiddleston, with Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury…. AAAAAAAHHH!!! TOO COOL!

So, now for the giveaway. I am a little jealous of the winner, because I would love to have ANY of these prizes. You can enter this giveaway to win an amazing prizepack from The Avengers. 

  • MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS t-shirt in adult  sizes of S, M, L, XL
  • MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS set of 6 buttons
  • MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS one pair of limited edition 3D glasses








Marvel’s The Avengers comes to theatres May 4. I can’t wait to see it myself!

Travel Thanks to Pampers – GIVEAWAY!

You guys know we’ve already booked some serious air miles in 2012. There’s been the flying to CA… the flying to NC… flying… flying… flying… and Pampers has been my trusty companion, well besides Atticus, on every trip. If you want to read more about how I use Pampers when we travel, make sure you check out my post on MomStart. What I really wanted to do though, was say thank you to Pampers for creating such awesome products, and all of you guys for reading, by holding the 3rd Momicles giveaway!

My little guy sporting his little Pampers.I’ve posted about Pampers before, and truly have been a Pampers fan from the very beginning. I did the neurotic 1st time mom thing and researched all about diaper types, brands, materials… and we even tested out Huggies. We’ve been hooked on Pampers from the time Atticus came home from the hospital. He graduated from the Swaddlers, and I almost panicked when we had to try out Pampers… with DRY MAX! There had been so much bad press about the whole dry max thing that my 1st time mommies kicked into overdrive. After having several VERY unsuccessful attempts with other diaper brands (that led to leaks, rips, rashes… you name it) we went back to Pampers… and tried Dry Max. Well, I’ll have you know, the Pampers Cruisers, with Dry Max, are AWESOME. They’re compact, absorbent, well fitted… and just overall good diapers.

Okay, well enough about the awesomeness of Pampers for now. Hopefully you have checked out my post about the Pampers size guide… AND are able to check out my post on MomStart. Until then, you should do what you can to enter this Pampers giveaway. Yep, I’m giving away a coupon for a FREE pack of any Pampers diapers (up to $13.99) and a FREE pack of any Pampers wipes (up to $3.99). Anyone with a baby can ALWAYS use diapers. Even if you don’t need diapers at home, you can always enter and pass the prize onto someone who does! Make sure to share this giveaway with all of your diaper needing friends! Well… they don’t need diapers… but you know what I mean. ;)

A Babble About Bobble – Review and GIVEAWAY!

Product Review and Giveaway

This year (like 98% of everyone else in the country) I decided to start out making healthier choices for both me and my family. One of the easiest things anyone can do to benefit their health is to drink more water! What better way to drink more water, than with a compact, super-effective, easy on the eyes water filter jug from Bobble?!?

Do you know how much water you are supposed to drink each day? Most people say 8 servings (a serving being 8 ounces). If you’re drinking that much WATER, you’re doing pretty good, but it might not be enough. You should actually take your weight, divide it in half, and that number in ounces is how much water a day you should be drinking. No need to share my exact ounce requirment, but let’s just say it is more than 64 ounces!

No one wants to deal with all of the empty plastic water bottles lying around, or filling up your recycle bin. Besides, I’ve heard that most bottled water is just your average filtered tap water. Why pay more for a product that you can make yourself with Bobble? Bobble has been featured in magazines, on TV, and used by celebrities including Kristen Bell, Sophia Bush, and LeAnn Rimes . What’s not to love about it’s sleek design and space-saving filtration system? The Bobble takes up less space in the fridge, and takes less time to filter, because it only has one resevoir unlike traditional filter jugs that have 2. The Bobble Jug has a clean modern look to it too so it can double as a serving pitcher, too. You can even order the color you’d like so it matches your own sense of style!

Bobble has such an incredible line of products. Now you can find Bobble products almost everywhere! You can have a Bobble jug or your own personal Bobble bottle! If you join in here on Momicles, you can even get a Bobble jug for free!

Enter to Win – One Bobble Jug

Here's exactly what you'll win.

Sony Cyber-shot WX9 – A Little Camera with Big Features! GIVEAWAY


That’s right everyone! Momicles is kicking off 2012 with a giveaway. Not just any giveaway, the first Momicles giveaway ever! Thanks to Sony, I’m able to get started with an AMAZING prize: the Sony Cyber-shot WX9! Yep! Check out this review to learn more about the perfect point and shoot camera that could be yours!

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9 is a small, extremely lightweight camera full of features that made taking high quality pictures easier for the everyday amateur photographer. I can speak from experience when saying that too! I’m definitely not a professional photographer and struggle a lot because of poor lighting in our house, but with the Sony WX9 my pictures have been coming out GREAT! There are a few things that really make this camera for me. First of all is the size and setup of the camera. It is actually smaller than my phone! When compared to a deck of cards, the camera is almost the exact same size. That makes it the perfect size to put in a small case and add to any diaper bag, purse, or backpack. If you’re not the bag carrying type, the sleek smooth design of the Sony DSC-WX9 easily fits into pockets without getting caught on anything.

Low lighting is a huge problem for me. Our house seems like it is always dimly lit and taking pictures of our family (especially our son) is usually really tough. I used the Sony WX9 during the holidays and pictures that would normally be dark were well lit and fantastic! Since I’m not an official camera expert, I had to look up what  exactly made that happen. The Sony Cyber-shot has 16.2 megapixel “Exmor R” CMOS image sensor that works with the lens to make sure pictures are taken quickly, with high resolution, impressive low-light sensitivity and great clarity (no grainy appearance on your pictures). This same technology is addition to the  BIONZ®image processor keeps the pictures of my busy little boy from being being blurry with the Anti-Motion Blur. 

The Sony Cyber-shot WX9 is also a great little tool to have  on hand for taking great video. The WX9 allows for video recording at the highest resolution available (Full HD 1080/60i). Instead of carrying 2 different devices with you like I used to do to capture both still and moving memories, this Sony Cyber-shot can handle it all.

The two other biggest “Wow Features” of this camera to me are the very cool charging cord (the battery stays in the camera and you use the provided mini USB and adapted to charge it in any outlet) and the fact that this camera is capable of taking 3D images! Maybe being so impressed by those features is a little dorky, but… what can I say? I am impressed!

Here are more specs from Sony. Check HERE for the full sheet.:

  • Optical Zoom : 5x
  • Effective Picture Resolution : 16.2MP
  • HD Output: HDMI 1080i
  • Lens Type : Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar®

  • Face Detection
  • Smile Shutter™ technology
  • Optical SteadyShot™ Image Stabilization
  • In-Camera Editing : Trimming / Red Eye Correction / Unsharp Masking
  • Battery Type : LITHIUM ION NP-BN1 3.6V

Now that I’ve told you how much I love the Sony Cyber-shot WX9, I can FINALLY tell you that thanks to the people at Sony, Momicles has a silver Sony WX9 to GIVEAWAY! That’s right! The first giveaway on Momicles is an AMAZING one!


This giveaway ends at 12:00 a.m. EST on 01/18/2011.
