Sweepstakes Diva

2016 Holiday Gift Guide Submissions


Sweepstakes Diva is back again this year with our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide.  Last years guide was a huge success for all of the companies that we featured.  Our readers loved the reviews and information featured on our guide.  Our giveaway was a huge success as well.

This year we have several ways for businesses to participate in the gift guide.  We have some great categories:


Christmas Lists include (men, women, teen boys, teen girls, boys, girls, and infant/toddler). 

I will also be doing some fun blog posts including holiday themed recipes so cooking items would be a great feature for this.

We have a couple of options when it comes to participating.

-You may submit an item for the guide that fits one of the above categories (you may submit more then one as well). When you submit an item you will receive a video review of the item, a written review that will be listed on the holiday gift guide.  The video will be posted on our YouTube video (we currently have over 600 subscribers and 430,000 views), you will receive at least one share on our Facebook page (currently over 6,000 followers), one share on our Twitter account (currently over 4,000 followers), and one share on our Pinterest page (currently over 500 followers).  If you sell your item on Amazon.com we will also share the video and written review on amazon.com (I am currently ranked at 4,089 on the top reviewer list).  In the written review we will share a link to your product and the currently pricing.  You may also give us a discount code to share with our readers and we will add it to our review.  It’s a great way to track traffic from your submission. You will be provided all of these links once the review is completed by email.

-We will be featuring a giveaway again this year that will run from December 1-24th.  You may provide a giveaway prize to be included.  For each giveaway item you include you may submit two social media links that will be included in the giveaway entries required for entry for the prizes.  This is a great way to drive followers to your social media accounts or website.  At the end of the giveaway an email will be sent to you with the winner’s information and you will be responsible for mailing them the prize.

If you are interested in participating we would love to work with you.  We do need you to fill out the following form for each item you would like to include in the gift guide so we can keep track of all items coming in for review.


If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at sweepstakesdivanews@gmail.com.

Swaddle Designs zzZipMe Sack


I just recently tried out Swaddle Designs new zzZipMe Sack and I am in love with this.  It’s made of the same great soft material as their swaddle blankets so it’s like wrapping them in a nice soft cuddly blanket but so much easier.  And they can’t kick it off the second you get them all wrapped up.  This is a nice large sack that you can easily slide onto baby.  There are arm holes at the top so you can pull their little arms through.  It zips up the front.  The bottom is closed in so it keeps them nice and warm and swaddled.  This soft and stretchy 100% cotton wearable blanket is perfect for when the baby is ready to transition from swaddling. They are lightweight, breathable an perfect for summertime! They are available in sizes 0-6 months & 6-12 months.


The zipper on this is very well made and a great construction.  It zips up the entire front of the sack.  Has a flap that hides the zipper and then a button that comes across to keep it in place and concealed.  Very nice finished look. The two way zipper makes this sleeping sack easy to use.


Comes in five adorable prints created by designer Lynette Damir. I got this great yellow because when I ordered it I didn’t know if my daughter was having a boy or a girl and this design works great for both.  So if you are giving it as a gift this is a great neutral option.  However they have also have pink, blue and even a grey option.


Swaddle Designs is a great company that features not only this great product but a ton of awesome baby items.  We love this company for our grand children.  Very affordable and great quality items.

Callisto Publisher’s Club

Hello readers! I am really excited to share with you a secret I’ve been holding onto: I am a member of an invitation-only book club. I’ve been getting free books for months from a New York Times best selling publisher and I pay nothing at all. In exchange for providing an honest review, I receive as many books as I’m interested in. The books are either high quality paperback or digital editions and cover a wide range of topics—from essential oils to barbecue to cooking with my kids, the list goes on. The best part is that I’ve been able to make an arrangement with the publisher so that my blog readers can also take part in this fun exchange!


Okay, so here’s my experience with the club:
To begin with, I got to pick what I wanted from a list of pretty compelling books available for review. I selected The Portable Essential Oils in paperback format. Within a few minutes, I received an email from the Callisto Publisher’s Club team letting me know how to claim my free copy from a major online retailer. And that was it! Just a few days later, my book arrived in the mail! Not knowing quite what to expect from a free book, I was impressed to find a well crafted, visually stunning guide that was quite portable indeed (fits in my purse)! The vibrant images inside and out are lovely and very helpful with identifying herbs, etc. My family and I immediately picked out some homeopathic recipes to try.


Needless to say, I’ve since signed up to review several more and it’s been a delight to receive beautiful new books in my mailbox and to my kindle on a regular basis.


If you share my zeal for trying new things and you like to share your opinions through writing reviews, then I definitely recommend giving Callisto Publisher’s Club a try. It’s free, super easy AND you guys have exclusive access to sign up through this link using a code available to my followers only:
