Families, friends and shoppers are welcome to join us at Del Amo Fashion Center for special shopping events and activities during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Everyone can come walk off those Thanksgiving calories at 8 p.m. and begin crossing names off their holiday lists as well as getting some great deals for themselves.


“Heading to Del Amo Fashion Center with family and friends is the perfect way to wrap up a holiday about gratitude and togetherness,” said Lindsay Hermance, director of marketing and business development at Del Amo Fashion Center. “Many families enjoy entertainment traditions around Thanksgiving, whether it’s sharing meals, going shopping, seeing a movie, or watching a game together. We are excited to meet our customers’ different schedules and needs with the variety of retail and entertainment experiences they enjoy at Del Amo Fashion Center, plus extended opportunities for holiday ‘doorbusters’ and deals to be discovered.”


To reward shoppers for choosing Del Amo Fashion Center, swag bags will be available at Guest Services to the center’s first 150 customers, starting at 6 a.m. on Black Friday, while supplies last. Treats will be available at Guest Services through Black Friday weekend as well.


In addition, Del Amo Fashion Center’s mall management “elves” will greet and reward shoppers who have been on their best behavior this year with surprise treats and goodies, starting Black Friday weekend and continuing throughout the holiday season.

Friendly greeters will be stationed at mall directories beginning Black Friday, and continuing during holiday weekends and Christmas Eve, to help shoppers with directions, answer questions, distribute retailer offers and provide an insider’s perspective on the best deals and gift ideas for the holiday season.

Puff’s Fresh Faces: The tissue aisle gets wet as the makers of Boogie Wipes® create a new saline product line for adults under the Puffs® brand Giveaway Opportunity!


Mom started, owned and operated, Little Busy Bodies, LLC today announced it has finalized a licensing agreement with consumer products giant, Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG).  Under the agreement, Little Busy Bodies, creators of the hugely popular Boogie Wipes, will make and market a line of saline infused products under the Puffs brand.  First up and available this June, Puffs Fresh Faces, a moist saline tissue for adults that has been specifically designed to take on the needs of your face.


“When we first developed Boogie Wipes in 2007, we knew saline worked wonders when it came to cleaning and soothing stuffy noses.  We also knew saline had positive effects on the skin and ultimately wanted to tap into that knowledge when the time was right,” said Julie Pickens, CEO of Little Busy Bodies, LLC.  “Our partnership with P&G has really allowed us to build on the technology behind the use of saline for personal care and to realize our goal of taking moist saline wipes to the next level.”


Puffs Fresh Faces are built on the same quality foundation established by Pickens and her team of fellow moms.  But, different from kid-oriented Boogie Wipes, Fresh Faces are perfect for removing make-up, cleaning or refreshing the face after a long day or tough workout, and for taking on sneezes and mucus-filled moments caused by colds, the flu and allergies.

I received a review kit, containing 1 – 45 count box, and 1 – 15 count pack, with samples and coupons. I simply love Puffs Fresh Faces because they are great to use during the day or even at night and they are great to throw in your purse or backpack! My favorite is the light lavender!

Here’s some more info:
