Happy Holidays Gift Giveaway

 First and foremost, I want to aplogize to both my readers and these remaining sponsors for the delay in getting these giveaways done. It seems life always gets in the way when I plan to do things a certain way, especially here lately. I want to thank all of the wonderful people who have donated items for this giveaway , as well as all my readers- those who have been here a long time, and those who just found me. I was so excited to be putting these giveaways together for you guys, and I hope I haven't disappointed too many people. It was my first round of big giveaways, and hopefully next time around will go a lot smoother lol. I know I said all the gifts will be received before Christmas, but now that time has gotten away I can't guarantee that. I am making this a quick giveaway so that hopefully most of the prizes will be able to make it out by Christmas, but if they dont- they will still make wonderful "just because" gifts for yourself or someone else . The sponsors will be able to let you know when you should receive it  once the prizes are claimed.

 Here is what we have to win :

A Tory Burch Inspired Clover necklace [you choose the color] sponsored by Apple of My Eye Jewlery

An update and opening of next giveaways

 Hey everyone..  Shew where do I begin? The last few days have been a doozy for me and my family. Sick people, sick cars... My car croaked on my fiance yesterday, which sent us both into a sort of depression, considering it was our only car left running. He slept all day and night, and I worried all day and night. Considering he is the only one working outside of the home, I had no clue how we were going to make this work, and with less than a week until he gets his son, and not to mention he works 25 miles away now. We were both stressed about what to do. Amazingly, his brother offered to take him today to look at a car that he knew about , and I just got a phone call from him asking for the insurance phone number, so hopefully that means he will be driving home a new to us car. Fingers crossed. All of this stress has left me a little quiet over here , and I have to make up for that. I still have a few giveaways to do, and considering I am running out of shipping time to ensure everyone will get their prizes before Christmas, I am going to do a contest with multiple winners to give away the last prizes we have.  I will make a separate post for that in a bit.  On a side note, I had the giveaway from, which technically ended yesterday . However, they just  read an email that I sent 3 days ago today - and advertised the giveaway on their site, which made some of their fans unhappy when they saw it had already ended. I have decided to extend that one out until midnight EST  so that everyone can get their entries in. Go HERE to enter that one.  Watch for the next post coming up about the contest. :)

On the First Day of the Holiday Giveaway....

 Today I received  my candles and goodies from Countrytrail Soy Candles that I won in a giveaway. I was so excited when I opened the carefully packaged box.
They had these candles  packaged snugly in paper and bubble wrap [a bonus! I LOVE bubble wrap lol]

The candles also came with matchbooks attached on top and a very pretty wick dipper.

I was given the scents Reindeer Poop and Spiced Cranberry. I opened the lid and Ohhhhhhhh! The Reindeer Poop smells chocolaty  and the Spiced Cranberry is very Christmasy smelling. I am planning to give these as gifts so have not lit them, but can imagine how delicious they will smell in a house once lit..  I am trying to be good and not light one now!! 

Countrytrail Soy Candles is giving one of you the gift of A Mrs Clause's Crib Candle and a Wick dipper.

"Enjoy the aroma of warm gingerbread cookies and spiced cakes topped with hints of sugared cinnamon  and drizzled with icing. Everything you would expect Mrs. Claus to be baking in her Crib!"

This Giveaway is the start of the Holiday Gift for Her Giveaway and will run until Saturday 12/15 at midnight.
If you can't wait till it's over, CountryTrail does have these candles on sale for just $10 through tomorrow.

Girlfriends and Purses Giveaway

This review was done by Sweet N Sour Deals:
I recently ran across a fabulous website called Girlfriends and Purses. As soon as I saw it I wanted to know more about it so I contacted them and met Stephanie who has allowed me to do this review/giveaway for you. Stephanie Drane started Girlfriends and Purses in 2010 because she was looking for a direct sales company that had a product that excited her. Stephanie has a huge passion for purses but could not find a purse company that had a good vaariety that she would actually carry, so from that she started Girlfriends and Purses. Girlfriends and Purses provide unique purses from hobos, satchels, clutches to fashion handbags and accessories. There are so many different items to choose from such as jewelry to caps to a beautiful purse. Girlfriends and Purses now have consultants across the United States and Canada. Stephanie says "The purse party industry isn't saturated, so this is a great time for women who have a passion for purses to be their own bosses! They earn forty percent commission, and have a replicated site." Now that you know a little about Girlfriends and Purses let me tell you about the wonderful purse I was sent to review.
I was sent the Ruffled Royalty and I love it!! It is a beautiful white with ruffles on the front and under the ruffles is a deep dark purple. It has silver hardware and a braided handle. The interior is lined in a silk purple lining with a cell phone pocket and a zippered pocket. This purse is so soft it feels like a lamb skin or a real supple soft leather. It will be easy to clean and take care of as you can just wipe it off. I was very impressed with the quality of this purse and it is now one of my favorite purses. I will carry this purse year round.
Now for the fun part, Stephanie has agreed to give one lucky fan a new Embellished Textured Leather and Ostrich Cross Organizer Flat Wallet. Please use the rafflecopter below to enter...Good Luck!!!
Disclosure: This review was conducted by Sweet N Sour Deals. I have  not received compensation for this giveaway. Facebook is in no way associated with this giveaway. The prize fulfillment will be made by Girlfriends and Purses

Old Navy Style Council- Dress Sample & Review

click to expand

I had a fabulous time browsing through Old Navy's Dress collection. My Kingsport,TN store had a great selection. I saw each dress that was advertised on the website . My fiance went with me to help me pick out the perfect dress.He chose a sweater "dress". I wasn't really fond of how it looked on me, and was unsure it would be considered a "sweater dress" I'm short, that's why it fit me like a dress.. It needed some leggings- which I looked at and didn't like.When we went to checkout the coupon scanned as an ineligible item. The cashier said she didn't know why, but it had run up as a tunic.:) The store manager then come over and looked at the coupon. To my surprise he opened a binder and turned to the back of it and there was a copy of my coupon. I have used sample and share coupons there three times now, and each time no one has ever heard of crowd tap or the coupon. I told the manager I was impressed. He then got real excited and asked if he could show me the dress collection they had. AS he walked me through the store he made the comment " There was only 1,000 of these coupons distributed nationally" I told him I was not aware of the exact number, but since I have been a member of the Style Council I have gotten many perks , and always use them in that same store. He told me how glad he was to have me in his store, and took me to each display of dresses, explaining how his wife would pair the tunic I originally picked out with a pair of leggings and knee high boots. He has a lucky wife- he has good taste :) The dress I picked out was the black sweater dress with the cowl neck..  My pictures here won't show justice because my camera/lighting isn't that great, and well we are are own worst critics lol

My fiance really liked another dress, so he surprised me a few days later and brought it home to me as a gift... I'm still unsure about it, and know I need to lose a few more pounds before I will wear it out, but here it is

Thanks to Old Navy and Crowd tap for the chance to try their dresses!  If you love Old Navy and aren't on the style council yet, you really should sign up now! I just got approved for another sample and share for Old Navy Active Wear!
