Sunday, October 18, 2009 - This Week's 'Moment of Gratitude' and THREE giveaways!

Living in Gratitude

On Sunday, 'Today's Moment of Inspiration' becomes the weekly 'Moment of Gratitude'. While I do still live in Gratitude each and everyday, I decided to change this feature to a weekly to allow a full week of Inspirational messages and breathing meditations.

This week, I am grateful for:

1) Ascending Butterfly has been nominated for the Divine Caroline's Love! This Site Awards '09 For the 'Body and Soul' category! I am absolutely floored. I have been a long time reader of The Divine Caroline Website and consider them one of my daily sources of inspiration. My heart was certainly filled with gratitude to find out we were nominated. And more meaningful still, to find out it was an Ascending Butterfly reader who nominated us! Thank You! If you would like to vote for us, please click HERE! This is a one time vote and it's super fast, the best part is, voters will have a chance to win a $250 Visa Gift Card, just for voting! How cool is that?

2) I also recently found out that I made it to the top 20 and final voting round in the 'I REALLY want my Beautyrest Mattress Contest'. This is a daily vote and it's also super fast, you can vote HERE

3) I am also a finalist in the "Good Mood Gig" Talent Search, all votes appreciated HERE (No worries my butterflies, I can manage BOTH!)

4) I'm also very grateful that work allowed me some great moments of fun this week! While covering the newly re-designed Beauty Counters at Bloomingdales in New York City, I had the opportunity to receive a very relaxing 'hand & arm massage' at the La Mer counter! Definitely a priceless experience for a blogger whose wrists take a beating on a daily basis. If you have the chance, (pls call for an appointment) ask for 'Anna', she left my hands and arms baby soft, and the 'Diamond Dust' used in the exfoliation process left me with quite a sparkle and shimmer! (Hopefully I can work with the great folks at La Mer on sponsoring a review and giveaway, I will keep you all posted!) I had never tried out La Mer before (I know, I know) and I now understand the cult following these products have, they are pricey, but oh so worth it! I now wish I had taken them up on their facial offer, but I didn't have time and think I will have to do that next time!

5) We are also grateful to launch Ascending Butterfly's Ning Group, now users can do more than just connect with the site, you can connect with one another too! Join our Ning Group HERE. One of my favorite Ning Group apps is the Twitter Tracker, up to the minute butterfly updates and great conversation!

What are you grateful for today? I'd love for you to write in and share what you are grateful for this week. The more you say it, the more you speak it, and the more you live in gratitude, the more you will find reasons to be grateful for. So join me on this journey of gratitude and inspiration. And you can post here daily (even though my list will be posted weekly).

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

Select Comfort Mattress Topper Review and Giveaway!

This Giveaway is now CLOSED. Congratulations to Ascending Butterfly 'ElKaye' (we post our winner's username instead of full name, which is why we put it in quotes!)  Don't forget to enter our current giveaways listed on the upper right hand side of the page where it says 'WIN HERE'.


Select Comfort Mattress Topper Review and Giveaway

There are various reasons that many people find it difficult to fall and stay asleep, fluctuations in our body temperature is one major culprit! The Outlast In Balance Mattress Toppers by Select Comfort helps your body regulate your sleeping temperature so you are comfortable throughout the night. Less tossing and turning and more quality sleeping, how cool is that?

I am a night owl by nature, but when it's time to sleep, I want to reduce tossing and turning as much possible! And for allergy and asthma sufferers you want to keep your mattress as clean as possible, and a mattress pad that you take off and wash frequently is a great way to reduce allergens in your sleeping environment. Sneezing and wheezing are definite sleep robbers!

Our very patient friends at Select Comfort, who gave me more than ample time to truly review this product, are generously offering up an Outlast In Balance Mattress Topper, to One lucky Ascending Butterfly reader!

I love that it comes with a 10 year warranty, wide bands to hold onto corners so it won't slip off, 100% cotton cover, antimicrobial filling, and of course it is machine washable. I am in the market for a new mattress and after trying the mattress topper, I can only imagine how great a Select Comfort Mattress must be! (feel free to share your testimonials!) OUTLAST® fabric technology is designed to reduce the temperature swings that can cause restless nights-to help you sleep more comfortably each and every night. 300-thread-count, 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton top, 100% cotton bottom. RELY™* polyester fiberfill features an antimicrobial agent to inhibit the growth of fungus, mold, mildew and the odors they cause. Hypoallergenic. Logic™ Label system takes the guesswork out of where to start making your bed. This topper is intended to lay over your current mattress pad and it is secured to your bed with anchor bands in the corner. Machine washable, made in the USA and comes with a 10-Year Limited Warranty!
