Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

Inspired by some awesome photos I’ve seen taken by you guys I decided to upgrade my camera from a Canon PowerShot SX150 to a Nikon CoolPix. Not that a camera will make me a better photographer, it will however, (I hope) make my photos pop with less of a need to rely on editing software.

My husband recommended that I go to Cameras etc and take a look at their selection of used cameras of which was extensive, but I was more interested in the Nikon Coolpix P100 on sale that I had seen in the newspaper.

Armed with the advertisement I drove into Newark, to Main Street on the campus of the University of Delaware and fed 4 quarters into the parking meter.  Entering the store I was immediately greeted by Imaging Consultant Todd.  I explained what I wanted, showed him the ad and stated that I had “Liked” them on Facebook hoping for a discount.

Cameras etc

Unfortunately, they didn’t have the advertised model in stock but Todd did show me a higher priced model the P520, but before you scream, “bait and switch”, he didn’t try to push me into purchasing it.  He called their Wilmington store and asked to have one shipped for  arrival the next day.

Nikon Camera

Todd explained all the features on the P520 and how it compared to the P100 so that I would be familiar and comfortable before making the purchase.  He also took time to show me some used Nikon cameras in the same price range but after I took the camera outside, snapped a few pictures I decided then to buy it.

The time and patience that Todd spent in explaining all the features was awesome, I even had to feed two additional quarters into the meter, I see why they have been a successful business since 1977.

Cameras etc.

This camera is an early birthday present to myself and I am looking forward to using it this weekend as we celebrate our 23rd Wedding Anniversary and at the BLMGirls event in DC on the 31st.

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Demagist Skin Care.  All opinions are 100% mine.

I grew up hearing the phrase, “Black Don’t Crack“, but that may not be the case in all situations, especially if you don’t take care of the skin you’re in.  Natural aging combined with the lack of sleep, smoking, or overexposure to UV Rays can crack the best of skin no matter the color!  Not all signs of skin damage are visible so I make sure to remove my make up, cleanse my face and moisturize every night.

I’m fortunate to have tight skin with no visible wrinkles, but at 51, I’ve overexposed my skin to the sun’s harmful rays and am also an ex-smoker.  I can see fine lines developing in my face so now is the time to take more action including caring for my chest and neck area.

OOTD 6 14 and 6 17 021

I was contacted by Neck-Cream.com and asked to do a sponsored post for their product Dermagist Neck Restoration Cream, so the timing was perfect.  I don’t know much about “anti-aging” products, but do know that taking care of my skin now will definitely pay off in the future.  Eventually if we’re lucky, we get to meet “Father Time“, and how we chose to greet him is in our hands.

Product Reviews 005

Dermagist Neck Restoration Cream is supposed to lift, tighten and firm, as well as smooth out fine lines and wrinkles while deeply moisturizing the skin.  Now that’s a lot to expect from this little 60 ml bottle but I was excited to give it a try.

Product Reviews 003

The first thing I noticed about Dermagist was that it didn’t have an overpowering scent nor was it thick or oily.  It’s very light and absorbed quickly into my skin.  As directed, I’ve been using it twice a day for over a month and I can definitely see and feel the difference.  My neck and the V-zone area in my chest is silky smooth all day and it feels fully moisturized.

Dermagist Neck Restoration Cream did not irritate my skin and it contains several all natural ingredients including sesame protein, apple stem cells extract, and Shea Butter.  Dermagist has now become part of my daily beauty routine, with the bottle always in plain sight – you know forgetfulness also comes with aging (lol).

OOTD 6 14 and 6 17 019

Dermagist Skin Care has offered to give one of my readers a free bottle of Dermagist Neck Restoration Cream.  All you need to do is “Like” Dermagist and DeDivahDeals Facebook pages, then leave a comment as to why you would be excited to try the product.

Make sure to refer your friends ~ a winner will be randomly chosen on July 15th. Good luck!

Hello Friends, I hope your day is going well!

You know me, DeDivahDeals, always looking for a bargain, well I came across what I think is the best way to find and buy daily deals.  In the past, I have bought deals from Groupon and Living Social but the constant emails for deals that I wasn’t interested in was annoying.  Thankfully, this is not the case with www.dailydealsuperstore.com.

www.dailydealsuperstore.com has all the deals in one place – from the recognizable, big names to the really local deal companies, and everything in between.  I have created my own profile so I only get the deals from Wilmington, and the surrounding areas and Philadelphia, PA and I don’t have to read through a bunch of others.   I can change my profile any time, so when I plan a trip I can add my destination and pick out a few cool deals before I leave.

www.dailydealsuperstore.com gives me a lot of categories to choose from so it’s really easy to either see the deals I want and hide the ones that I’m not interested in. Beauty deals not your thing? No problem, deselect the box and those deals won’t show up in your personalized list.

www.dailydealsuperstore.com has a great Facebook app too, so I can share deals with my Facebook friends – and earn rewards!   We all could earn points from every deal and redeem them for gift cards.  Saving money on deals AND earning rewards – winning!

Anywho, click on the banner below to register and start getting some great deals today – try it, I think you’ll like it!

Get Paid To Watch TV!

Viggle is a loyalty program for people who watch television, it gives rewards for checking into the television shows that you are watching. Available for Android, Apple iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®, Viggle automatically identifies the television shows its users are watching and awards them points when they check-in. Viggle users can redeem their points in the app’s rewards catalogue for items such as movie tickets, music, gift cards or they can convert them into charitable donations.

Viggle works by using the microphone on your device to listen in on the TV show or movie and gives you the option to share what you are watching with friends. Viggle’s basic integration is with Facebook and Twitter but telling Viggle what you’re watching is for your own personal gain.

You need to be a couch potato because the minimum amount of points needed to redeem a reward is 7,500, or approximately 60 hours of tv-watching. You can also get bonus points by tagging live TV shows, special events, or watching ads within the app.

I currently have 20,034 points and am thinking about cashing in or I might wait for a bigger reward!

Check it out, the app is free in the iOS App Store.
