Miscellaneous Monday Morsels 3/19/11

Happy Monday!  There’s a few things I wanted to share with you today (a giveaway, some online window shopping, and a movie recommendation), but I’ll start with the most important one.

I recently came across a company called Tatcha, and I’ve been chatting with them about their fundraising efforts.  I think they definitely deserve a mention here, as every little bit helps.  They are aiming to raise $10, 000 to help Japan, and they’ve created a special “Kokoroyori” (from the heart) gift box to raise money.  From now through March 31, all profits from the sale of this gift box will go towards Save The Children.  If you are interested in donating, click here to find out more.

This is just one of the ways you can donate though, and I certainly realize that not everyone is able to afford this gift box.  There are many other ways you can help, such as donating through Red Cross or a similar organization.  I’m actually involved in a blogger fundraising effort right now, but I can’t give you the details until I get the go-ahead xD.

Like I said at the beginning of this post, there are also a couple of other things I wanted to tell you about!

Pai Skincare, whose moisturizer I will be reviewing shortly, recently launched a new product called Rosehip BioRegenerate.  It kind of sounds like an amped-up version of Bio-Oil to me, check it out here!  If this sounds like something you’d be interested in trying out, Pai is going to give away 10 bottles every single day starting from today until March 25.  To join the fun, just go to their Facebook page, and follow the instructions.  Best of luck to you!

Also, remember GoNails?  I just got an email from them the other day with some coupon codes, which will work for the next 7 days.  They are currently offering 35% off a yearlong supply with the code GON12M35, or 25% off a 6-month supply with the code GON6M25.  If you’ve tried the product before, and really liked it, hopefully these will be useful to you.

Haven’t done a movie recommendation for awhile, but now I’m urging you to see Behind The Lines a.k.a. Regeneration.  I’m not one for war movies, but this one was fascinating.  It’s about officers during WWI, who were institutionalized for “shell shock” (now known as post-traumatic stress disorder).

I will warn you that it is difficult to watch, and that’s putting it lightly.  All the same, highly recommended as long as you’re not expecting light fare.
