Multiply Review and Giveaway: Everyone is a winner!

Like every other parent, I love to take pictures of my girlies in action, and sharing them with friends and family is the ultimate gift. I am always on the lookout for new and improved ways to do the above, that is how I came in contact with Multiply.

With Multiply you can set up a profile, upload photos, get prints and order photobooks that you can share with friends and family in a secure setting; Multiply is also one of the fastest growing social networking service around.

Multiply now enables its members to do even more with their newly improved tools and features that make it complete for media management and communications. Major upgrade include:

  • Multiply’s Media Locker serves as a member’s central home for media – making it easier than ever to publish photo albums and videos with a few clicks, while offering members a private, secure dashboard to view, organize, store and edit their media.
  • Fully Integrated Online photo editing tools including red eye and blemish reduction, cropping and resizing, contrast/brightness controls, exposure adjustment and auto leveling – make it easy to edit photos right from a member’s Media Locker, making photo editing possible at any time, from any computer. With Version 4.0, Multiply will be the first major social network that offers photo editing integrated within its core service.
  • Multiply’s AutoUploader is more powerful than ever, making it a simple, time-saving solution for automatically uploading media files to the Multiply Media Locker. AutoUploaders save, on average, 90 minutes each week in upload time with the free, quickly installed, no fuss tool. The AutoUploader provides a completely automated back up solution for a member’s most precious photos and videos.
  • Picasa and Windows Photo Gallery plug-ins will allow members to seamlessly import their desktop media galleries to their online media lockers.
  • An Expanded Selection of Photo Finishing Options, with additional themes and options for turning favorite photos into physical products, including photo books, calendars, cards and prints, give members the ability to turn their favorite photos into memorable keepsakes.

I am still learning and going through all that Multiply has to offer, and every day that I go through this site I am amazed at what I can do with my pictures and the social website.

Now on to the good stuff: the good people at Multiply are offering 50 free 4x6 prints to each one of you guys. Now what you have to do is leave a nice comment here on what you think of multiply and go here, use the code 50LALAPOO to get your free prints.

Have fun and go Multiply.

Monday, June 22, 2009


After having giving birth to my second child last september; I wanted to jump start my exercise routine right out of the hospital..okay maybe not but one of the things that were going through my mind was how I was going to get that flabby stomach back to normal. Althought I barely had time to exercise I started on the exercise path with something simple.. Breakpal Exercises.
If you are sitting a your desk a lot may be it at the office, your home office, or you are just around the computer all the time.Breakpal actually tells you to exercise by popping onto your screen every 30 to 40 minutes or so (depending on how you set it), and not to worry it's actually easy to set up on your computer.

Here are some reasons why I appreciate Breakpal :
1. You are able to choose the intervalls at which you would like the pop up to remind you to exercise.
2.You get points for exercising.
3. You get support from the Breakpal community. It really helps with your motivation when you can connect with others on the Breakpal site. You can even join Breakpal on facebook.

The Exercises are done and created by Liz Weaver who has been a fitness instructor and martial arts instructor since 1997, that is one of the reasons why there is such variety in the Breakpal program: from yoga stretches (my favorites) to special exercises using your computer chair as a prop.


The Owners of the Breakpal program have graciously agreed to giveaway 3 full (non expiring) memberships to the program here on Lalapooreviews.
