MY Favorite Things Giveaway

Starting from the top left and going clockwise to the center, here are a few of my favorite things that I’m giving away this Christmas. Hope you love them as much as I do!

1. DELISH Dark & Twisted Lemon & Black Pepper Dark Chocolate Bar: I know. The ingredient combination sounds suspicious, but trust me. This dark chocolate bar is going to rock your world. The bright citrus and spicy black pepper flavors are subtle, but present just enough to raise your eyebrows, and then have you instantly diving in for a second bite. I’m not even a huge chocolate lover, but I will ask for second and third bites of this bar in a heartbeat!

2. Chalk Note Wine GlassesThese chalkboard wine glasses from Pier 1 are a favorite in my house, and have also become my go-to wedding gift present. Everyone I know absolutely adores them. And they also are awesome to use with entertaining — either for writing names or cute notes on the wine glasses, or even to use them for serving utensils or straws and such. (I almost always put some out labeled “forks” and “spoons” when I have a happy hour at my place.)  Love them!

3. Lightweight Gold Leaf EarringsI found these adorable earrings months ago on the $5 jewelry rack at World Market (my total weakness), and I now wear them literally multiple times a week. These adorable (and truly lightweight) earrings seem to go with everything and always get so many compliments! And for such a reasonable price tag, there’s no reason not to pick up a pair or two for some friends this holiday season.

4. Yellow Chevron Paper StrawsOk, I know that the paper straw fad may be overhyped, but you’ve gotta admit — they always seem to make drinks a little extra delightful. :)  My current favorite design is this yellow chevron pattern, which seems to go with everything. Cute, classy, and so fun!

5. J.R. Watkins Lotion Devotion KitIs anyone else in love with these yummy lotions? Well, if you have tried them, or if you’re new to the line, I am giving away an entire sampler kit of lotions. They are the perfect way to keep your skin soft and hydrated this winter. And the delicious scents will make your day a little lovelier to boot. The kit includes:

  • Aloe & Green Tea Hand & Body Lotion
  • Lavender Hand & Body Lotion
  • Lemon Cream Hand & Body Lotion
  • Mango Hand & Body Lotion
  • Rejuvenating Foot Cream
  • Signature J.R. Watkins Pouch

6. Essie Forever Yummy Nail PolishEvery girl needs a good red, and this one is my favorite right now. It goes with everything, and will definitely add a festive touch for all of those holiday parties.

7. $20 Target GiftcardFor all of those times when you walk in with 5 things on your list and walk out with 10, this card will at least help with some of the difference. ;)  Enjoy!!!
