Orgullosa Event: Entre Nosotras, Mi Casa es mi Estadio #Fùtbol #Orgullosa

IMAG1379

With the FIFA World Cup matches heating up, this has been a year where record numbers are starting to tune in. I can say that I have had more “soccer” conversations than I usually did in the past. Orgullosa, a Procter & Gamble division was kind enough to treat my guests and myself to some P&G products and a little party to celebrate the event(s). I have found serving a buffet of desserts and making it a “sweet treats” event keeps the guests happy and I have mastered the art of mini pies and desserts. Finger foods and small servings lets everyone make enough room to have a little bit of everything 🙂

Let’s begin……

 

  • Tide & Orgullosa T-Shirts:

Finally, shirts that are cut beautifully to fit a female. Each shirt featured a colorful Futbol embraced with the Orgullosa logo and colors. The slogan read, “Orgullosa De Mis Colores”, meaning Proud of my colors. A Tide logo is located on the bottom left corner and the facebook address and Orgullosa logo on the back. Nice white shirts that are comfortable to lounge in and my guests were excited to receive them. I folded the shirts to resemble a basket and stuffed them with goodies and others I used as a base, and stacked the Procter & Gamble items with a finished bow to hold it all together.

  • Tide Pods:

The pods are perfect for HE washers and regular models. You simply toss a pod in the drum, add your clothes and the machine and the Tide Pod do the rest. Everyone received the Spring Meadow scent. One pod is enough to do one large load and if it’s an extra large one, simply add two. I love that they dissolve easily in any water temperature and perform well when it comes to removing stains and getting clothes clean. Not hard on fabrics and actually tends to brighten colors. Each pod contains detergent, stain remover and a brightener, so you are covered when it comes to getting clothes cleaned their best with Tide Pods. You can find these pods at your local stores and don’t forget your coupons. A 72 count usually retails for $17.99 and places like Target have the Cart Wheel app, where savings can be greater.

  • Head & Shoulders 2-in-1 in Green Apple:

Shampoo and Conditioner with a nice fresh green apple scent. This is a anti-dandruff shampoo that has a clean and crisp scent. The product contains Pyrithione Zinc in 1% as the active ingredient. Many anti-dandruff shampoos tend to be drying to hair and even the scalp, making the dandruff problem worsen plus creating others. Head & Shoulders leaves your hair manageable and looking beautiful, plus benefiting from a healthy scalp. This product contains conditioner and for those days that I am short on time or need a quick wash to get the pool’s chlorinated water off, this fits the bill perfectly. A 14.2 ounce bottle is a low price of $5.79.

  • Charmin Basic Huge Rolls:

I have purchased the normal rolls, double to big rolls and when I saw the word HUGE, I just thought the big rolls had changed their name. This roll saves my sanity! Why you ask? I seem to be the only one in the house that has mastered the skill of changing the TP roll. Since I have held such a skill, this means for some reason I go in and the roll is empty but still there, empty but a roll was placed on the counter (like saying “almost got there”) or two square sheets are left and this includes the one that is glued on. The Charmin Basic Huge rolls have 385 sheets, which breaks down to 41.9 square feet of peace. You save with the Basic line and you don’t sacrifice quality. Even though this is a 1-ply tissue roll, the sheets are comfortably soft and still “hold up”. I like saving and that includes my skills as bathroom TP roll installer! You can find this new product at your local store and if you can’t find it, ask for it!

  • Head & Shoulders 2-in-1 Old Spice:

Being that I also have male guests, Orgullosa sort of figured out that not all the guys want to smell like flowers or even a green apple. In comes the Old Spice scent that smells clean but with less of a floral bouquet fragrance. The product still contains the same fighting power of 1% Pyrithione Zinc and conditioner because guys even with short need it. I don’t want to date a Porcupine, so please condition your locks no matter how long or short they are. The “handsome scent” as listed on the bottle does smell nice and not at all like most men products that smell like musk or the woods. This is a welcoming scent that does it’s job but in a more “manly” way 🙂 A bottle retails for $5.79 for the 14.2 ounce size.

 

  • Orgullosa Tumbler:

I have been on a kick to increase my water intake and it has helped to add lime and lemon slices.  My skin has improved and I feel better, so I have continued the habit.  I do not enjoy always refilling a bottle and trying to stuff citrus slices, so these types of tumblers always make things better and easier.  Easy to wash means I keep my water drinking habit and the Orgullosa logo just makes me appreciate it that much more.  Great gift because it will get used on a daily basis.

 

  • Coupon Booklets & Tide Pods Magnets:

Every guest received not only all the items above to try but also a savings book filled with coupons.  There was also other coupons for other P&G products like Covergirl, which were not included.  The Tide Pods magnets gave instructions and tips about the pods.

  • Futbol Feast:

As I mentioned, I find serving an array of desserts and treats as a way to make something for everyone.  I made 4 mini pies that each yield 4 slices.  I went with a star theme as the that is what La Copa (the cup) had.  I went with an apple, blueberry, blackberry and a strawberry rhubarb pies.  I also included 2 other treats, a Lemon Pound cake with a cream cheese swirl laced with Meyer Lemon curd and a Blueberry Buckle.  I wanted my guests to leave with a treat but a not so sweet one, so I made each a small artisan loaf.  My way of thanking them for coming and something they can enjoy at home with their next meal.  Nothing like fresh bread to make a sandwich for two or just enjoy with a little butter.  We plan to see los partidos together that involve the countries we are rooting for.  I wanted Argentine, Brazil or Germany and then I was told I had to pick one.  I’m waiting for more games to finish to see who ends on top when it comes to my favorite.  Orgullosa also supplied us with a field poster and cut-outs.  We had fun….maybe too much fun 🙂

Fresh Baked Bread for guests to take home.

Orgullosa Fiesta: P&G Party with Bounty Basic, Charmin Basic and Puffs Basic…plus Coupons

I love these parties and who doesn’t? You get to share items with friends and also money saving coupons. Today we all try to save and also get the best bang for our buck and you do not need to sacrifice quality all together. Procter and Gamble helps do just that with their Basic lines, so you can still purchase necessities without breaking the wallet.

I was sent a healthy assortment of products to try, share and also had a raffle giveaway for the coupons that were for the free items. Everyone loves leaving with goodies to take home and give it a “real world” test!

  • Bounty Basic:

You still get the “picker-upper” power but for a more economical price-point. We found the sheets to be thinner but if you spilled a liquid, the Basic Bounty sheet did it’s job of absorbing every last drop. The only differences we noticed is that the product can’t be reused as much as the other Bounty lines, however it all depends on your needs. I use paper towels to clean and dispose with few times needing to squeeze a second life out of a sheet. We rarely clean spills so Bounty Basic fits my needs perfectly.  We usually clean a surface and then dispose of the sheet.  I also like that the Basic sheet does not let go lint all over my counters. Having a dark granite makes it easy to spot a paper-towel that may be leaving anything behind, but Bounty Basic did not dirty while cleaning :). We all enjoyed the lower price-point and you can catch Bounty Basic on sale, plus with the coupons (look in your Sunday paper or use my link below), you get to save more!

  • Charmin Basic:

A place where skimping on quality can go wrong, in comes Charmin Basic to save the day with a lower cost toilet paper that does not require you to waste more by using more. Charmin Basic is the only toilet paper we have found that for the price point, it gives you a satisfied clean, does not require you to dust the bathroom because of the “TP linty dust” left behind like with other brands. Charmin Basic is also easy on plumbing and I found that it rarely clogs or slows a toilet when flushing. We switched like many of my guests have, to a more economical toilet paper because no one likes to flush money down the drain. I have been satisfied with how long a roll lasts and overall performance, that if Charmin Basic remains like it is, I will not be changing brands anytime soon.

  • Puffs Basic:

Out of habit, I like many others purchased the facial tissue that my parents purchased. I went with the tissue that could keep up with my allergy needs and leave me with a “kleen” nose. As time went on, the prices kept increasing and the coupons when I found them……well, they were not much savings. Sometimes I felt I was wasting ink and paper for the sake of saving! I switched at my last Orgullosa party, when P&G sent just a travel size pack. I used the pack up and realized I did not miss my former brand. I started purchasing Puffs and then tried the Basic line. Found my perfect balance of savings without sacrificing quality. I still use 1 to 2 tissues like I did with my old brand but found I’m more allergic to wasting money than pollen 🙂

  • Gifts for Guests “Entre Nosotras”:

The wonderful Orgullosa/P&G group also included gifts for my guests. We received adorable notebooks with pens, bracelets and coupons. I raffled the “freebie coupons”, to the guest that could stack more on their Bounty Basic sheet before it broke. Think of a Jenga game but with Bounty!

  • The Meal:

Being that we were close to Valentine’s Day, I baked chocolate chip cookies and just added a heart sprinkle to each one for that Valentine’s Day touch. I served my guests Kabobs with a Mediterranean Wild Rice and Vegetable Medley. I usually go the Spanish route but wanted something different for my guests and barbecuing seemed fit on this beautiful California’s day. The sun was out and since Winter forgot about us this year, we made the most of it! Everyone enjoyed the festivities and you see how happy people get when they learn to save with the Basic Everyday lines from Procter & Gamble…..savings makes smiles 😀

Crowdtap: Conttonelle Clean Care Products

When it come to clean, it’s really hard to compromise. Far too often we all get tempted by bargain brands, “cheap” prices, “ultra, mega super jumbo” rolls, “club-sized” pricing, and every other gimmick under the sun, it all circles back to clean.

DSCN1868

I was a Kirkland Signature user for years. It was hard to compete with the quantity for the price, especially with prices rising so fast for home basics like TP, paper towels, and cleaning products. Then, as all Kirkland products seem to do anymore, the quality of the tissue started to slide. It took more to get clean. It wasn’t strong enough. Then, it happened:

The lint.

We all dread it, we’ve all dealt with it, we all hate it. And Kirkland had it in spades! And not just on your person. It was everywhere. With every tear it was snowing in the bathroom. And that was it. It was time to find a new brand. For so long we assumed the only choices were cheap, red or blue. Then we discovered Cottonelle. Crowdtap, in it’s impeccable timing, offered us a chance to take Cottonelle’s line of personal cleaning products, and not just for us, for all our invited guests as well! Hot diggity!

I can safely say that this household is hooked on the Cottonelle Clean Routine. We got plenty of TP, and Cottonelle’s moist flushable wipes too! Let’s just say if you’re not using these, you only think you’re getting clean! Cottonelle really went all-out with the quality, too. Quilted, thick, strong, dual-ply. I can’t believe we spent so much time with so many other inferior brands. If your’e still thinking you’re saving money by buying cheap, take it from me, you’re sacrificing clean at the altar of cheap, and it’s not a sacrifice you want to be making.

 

I received the above product free of charge from Crowdtap.  I am not obligated to provide a favorable/positive review, just my honest opinion.  My review is based on my experience with the product, which may differ from yours.
