Let's Keep America Beautiful and #BeRecycled $100 Amazon GC #Giveaway with @BlogginMamas and Ad Council

This giveaway  is sponsored by Bloggin' Mamas


HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!

Earthday was a couple of days ago and it's a wonderful opportunity to focus on the strides being made to save our planet, but we all know mucho mas is needed.  This is our home, and like our actual dwellings, if we leave the cleaning to pile up too much it becomes almost overwhelming!
 So every little bit helps and recycling is an easy way for us to do our part.

Blog­gin’ Mamas would like to sup­port the Ad Coun­cil and Keep Amer­ica Beau­ti­ful, the national non­profit orga­ni­za­tion, which recently launched the newest phase of the “I Want to Be Recy­cled pub­lic ser­vice adver­tis­ing cam­paign. The PSA cam­paign aims to raise aware­ness and inspire indi­vid­u­als to recy­cle more with the lat­est series of ads focused on recy­cling in the bathroom. Bloggin' Mamas is sponsoring a $100 Amazon giftcard as a prize for a giveaway designed to spread the word of the campaign.

Per­sonal care prod­ucts like sham­poo and lotion bot­tles, toi­let paper rolls, and tooth­paste and soap boxes are sig­nif­i­cantly less likely to be recy­cled than kitchen prod­ucts. New research com­mis­sioned by the Ad Coun­cil found that 47% of peo­ple are not recy­cling mate­ri­als in the bathroom.

Accord­ing to a recent study con­ducted for the Ad Coun­cil, 52% of Amer­i­cans don’t know which items can be recy­cled in the bath­room. And only 10% of Amer­i­cans have a recy­cling bin in their bath­room, com­pared to the 45% who have them in the kitchen.

That’s why the “I Want To Be Recycled” campaign has partnered with Vevo’s Do It YourSelfie with Tess & Eva, who recreate the looks from today’s hottest music videos. These two glam experts, known for their DIY hair, makeup and design tips, created a new PSA this Earth Day reminding Americans that those bathroom products deserve to be recycled too!

Check out a quick video they made on how to recycle old clothes into a new bath mat:

Whether it’s hairspray, leave-in conditioner or dry shampoo, many of your favorite beauty products and packaging can take on another life through recycling. For example, your shampoo bottle could be recycled into a hairbrush, or you might find a great new dress made from the recycled plastic of your favorite bottle of lotion.Click here to learn more about what your personal care products can become when properly recycled.

And Now the Giveaway!

Prize(s): 1 win­ner will receive one (1) $100 Ama­zon Gift­card. We encour­age the win­ner to use the gift­card to pur­chase items to encourage recycling.
Num­ber of Win­ners: 1
Give­away Starts: 4/24/15 at 12:01am EST
Give­away Ends: 5/8/15 at 11:59pm EST
Eli­gi­ble: United States Res­i­dents ages 18+.

@PGATourWoman and the #EWD Executive Woman's Day Event- How to Play the Game while AT the Game.

BB was invited by the PGATourWoman & Bloggin' Mamas to attend the #EWD. 
No other form of compensation was given. Como siempre, opinions expressed are all Babushka's.

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!!!

If y'all recall, BB had started sharing her March events, and had listed several in one post. Bueno, all the events Babushka attends are good and merit posts, but there are some events that are so monumental and special in mis ojos that they deserve one all by themselves; the Executive Woman's Day Event sponsored by Astellas is one of those.

Was it really as good as it looked? 
Ponte comodas My Beautifuls 'cause this one is worth estudio.

Primero, First, the Invite.

TREMENDO schedule right? And TREMENDO LUGAR!!

Now, BB not being a big golf fan had never been to a PGA course- 
oh my, what Babushka has been missing!!

More fotos of the grounds later, now let's get to the Executive Woman's Day event.

PGAWomanTour Power Panel Astellas Sponsored

A better pic of the panel from the PGAWomanTour Feibu page

Sonya Canas- Mercantile CommerceBank, Dondra Ritzenthaler-Celebrity Cruises, Michelle Beauchamp-Bacardi
moderator Kristi Krueger -Local 10 Newscaster

Que inspiraciones, what inspirations!  And what quotes!! Aqui are some:

Sonya Canas with a saying she learned and followed while going up the corporate ladder- 
"Be careful of whose toes you step on On The Way Up.
They may be the foot you have to kiss on the way down."

Work with people. People help you go further than you'd ever go alone. ~Dondra Ritzenthaler

Mentoring is very important; it makes a big difference. 
Seek it out, and pay it forward. ~Michelle Beauchamp

After the panel, they saw that everyone in the room was buzzing and besides themselves with all the powerful points made and shared, so it was time for a break and breath of fresh air.  
No podian escojer a more perfect and beautiful spot.

Bohemian Babushka Trump National Doral PGA Course

Babushka HAD to take a foto w/the trophy. Porque?? JU SO FONII!!! 
Because that's the closest BB will ever get to having a sports one.

Bloggin' Mamas at the EWD

Aqui with some of the +Bloggin' Mamas #PGAMamas

They must have thought that fresh air opened up our appetites, because the food-

tantalizing salad and dessert at the Trump National Doral EWD Event

it was fancy, filling y Fantastico!! Y Si, the dessert deserved AT LEAST 3 fotos.

Beautifuls, BB didn't think the day could get better. 
A true "power panel" of women, a beautiful Miami day, a magnificent meal, but there was more. 
More, as in MUCH more, porque that's what the keynote speaker believes in and is. 

Carla A. Harris Keynote speaker #EWD PGAWomanTour collage

Her book is like her public speaking. It grabs you instantly and keeps you there with her humor and real talk. Intense and straight to the point, she shares her story with no pretense or pretty pictures, making us all feel and believe that we're coming from the same place and like her, can live our dreams.

Some Sabidurias of @CarlaAnnHarris

Perception is the copilot to reality. 
You can train people to think about you how you want them to think about you.

Pick 3 adjectives that describe who you really are.
Find 3 adjectives of company value.
Where they intersect is where you must concentrate.
Strive for consistent behavior in these 3 adjectives.

It's about how to tell the story.

To succeed you must be comfortable taking risks.

Wow and Woah.

In the beginning of this post you saw a video featuring Donna Fiedorowicz, the Senior Vice President Tournament Activation & Outreach. Having started this event, this mindset of @PGAWomanTour just four years ago truly encompasses everything these ladies speak about. From an article of PGATour.com, some of her visions,insights and quotes:

"Most women who attend do not play golf and have not attended a TOUR event. By creating these programs, we are creating a destination at our events they would have otherwise chosen to pass on."   100% correcto in Babushka's case

"Fiedorowicz believes the PGA TOUR provides a unique backdrop to host an Executive Women's Day event" and is proud of what is accomplished when events are given, what it means to the local community.
"The women are exposed to our product in a fun and 'safe environment.' It also provides us the ability to educate them on key facts such as the TOUR's strong charitable mission and recent milestone of surpassing $2 billion dollars in charitable giving."  2 Billion  Again, Wow and Woah.

Deserving of it's own post verdad?  Also deserving are YOU My Beautifuls.

 If you can attend one of these Executive Woman's Day Events, treat yourself, invest in yourself. 

Babushka's Favorite Quote of the event is also one of my life beliefs.

Do something you genuinely love.
You can never,never,NEVER give up.
~Dondra Ritzenthaler
