The Sunday Scoop Labor Day weekend style

I hope your long weekend has been a nice break from work, resplendent with family time and delicious barbecues so far!  Every time we have a big get together, my family commands – not asks – me to bring my homemade caramel fruit dip.  It’s so easy and delicious, I want to share the recipe with you:

photo from, but my recipe looks exactly like this

Let 1 8 oz package cream cheese and 1 cup Cool Whip come to room temperature.  In a blender, blend these two ingredients with 1/2 cup sour cream.  Add in 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar and blend until smooth.  Add in 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, 1/2 tablespoon real maple syrup, and 1/2 tablespoon Orange Blossom Honey.  Refrigerate until serving.  I serve this with strawberries, grapes, pineapple, and apples.  Enjoy!

I hope you get a chance to catch up on all the fabulous beauty blog articles from the past week, too.  Don’t miss the Beauty Info Zone color reviews of Zoya Nail Polish, Beauty Addicts Bronzer, Eddie Funkhouser Bedroom Eyes Palette, and Mally Beauty Pink Lip Sets.  Skin care features included Eco Beauty Skin Care and Painted Earth Vitamin C Serum.  Subscription box lovers shouldn’t miss my review of the Ecocentric Mom Subscription Box.  Plus we had two really terrific guest posts this week.  Christina from the fabulous The Makeup Blogger gave us her Top 5 Sunscreens of Summer, and the amazing Olivia from The Unknown Beauty Blog shared her Tips and Tricks for False Eyelashes.

In contest news, there were four lucky winners for the BIZ HUM Nutrition giveaway:  Rosie A., Ashley B., Astrid R., and Lynn.  We also have three winners (all international, yay!) for our Two Good Scents giveaway:  Anastasiya K, Rhonda W, and Sarah S.  Congratulations, and stay tuned for more Beauty Info Zone giveaways!

Here are some other great giveaways from across the net.  Be sure to check past Sunday Scoops for other contests that are still running.   Have a wonderful holiday weekend!  - Lisa

Welcome to the Sunday Scoop: my weekly post to tell you all you need to know about giveaways on Beauty Info Zone as well as all the fun ones I can find for you when I’m scouring the internet. sunday august hot nightsIn Michigan we have an annual Dream Cruise at the end of August.

The weather was beautiful and it was a hot August night for all who joined the fun.

This week we have 3 current giveaways on Beauty Info Zone:

Has is your summer going? Is it sinking into the water or is it flying high in the sky? Mine is sinking but I’m hoping to get it back together and start soaring soon. I have lots of giveaways this week to share and a few freebies so keep reading.

A BIG BIG FAVOR TO ASK OF YOU – We need people to click on THIS LINK for the U by Kotex campaign. It’s a sponsored post which we’ve chosen to do instead of piling up ads along the sides of the blog. We need about 80 clicks though in order to get paid (and believe me, it’s not much). We use the money we make on things like this for giveaways – products and postage. You will get your choice of 1 of 4 sample packs to be mailed to you free of charge. We can’t thank you enough for doing this and you’ll get a bonus too!!

While you are clicking please click on the POISE link too since that will also get you a free Poise sample set. You’ll be ready for any emergency!


No new winners since we didn’t end a giveaway but I was asked about the $500 Beauty Blogazon giveaway and that winner is Anna Pachlin and she’s been notified by the organizer. Lucky lady!

Be sure you enter the Sweepstakes. There’s a daily prize of $100 plus a grand prize of $2500. This is open through July 31st.

Our Walgreens giveaway ends on Monday 7/14/14 – enter and tweet again. US only.

The ProSonic giveaway also ends on Monday 7/14 – what are you waiting for? US only.

We have a cute little package of Shannon’s Soap Minis. Originally the giveaway was US and Canada only but we’re changing it to be international. This is open through 7/21/14
