{GIVEAWAY} Treat Yourself

My Dear Friends,

We're just a couple of weeks away from Halloween and there's one thing that I'm sure is on everyone's mind... treats!

Welcome to the Treat Yourself Giveaway Hop --- hosted by So Easy Being Green & Viva Veltoro!  In this hop, you'll find lots of special treats to keep you entering giveaways until it's time to go out & gather your own!

I'm giving two prize packs - a $50 Amazon.com Gift Card and a prize pack from Wat-Aah!

(WAT-AAH!, a brand of functional water for kids and teens, unveils "WAT-AAH! BOO", a limited edition bottle to celebrate Halloween and to promote healthy hydration in support of the Partnership For A Healthier America's (PHA) initiative, whose honorary chair is the First Lady Michelle Obama. On the label, the brand's familiar character, the WAT-AAH! Boy, is portrayed mysteriously in silhouette and screaming, "BOO!" to surprise its audience. He is surrounded by familiar Halloween imagery such as a witch, ghost, haunted house, pumpkin and full moon, each drawn using simple graphic lines. In the spirit of the holiday, a fun and unexpected treatment of PHA's "Drink Up" logo is also featured; it defines the body of a black spider crawling up the web, which serves as a background for the entire scene. For more information on CEO Rose Cameron's new blog, click here.)

Due to time constraints, the winner for the Wat-Aah! giveaway will be announced on 10/29 while the Amazon Gift Card winner will be announced on 11/1.  

Enter to win by using the Rafflecopter form below!

9thandElm.com was founded by Clay and Elly Bethune in the spring of 2013 with a mission to bring it's members fabulous fashion from the best handmade and independent designers.  They realized that it's extremely difficult to sort through and discover handmade fashion geared towards the "fashionista" so they set out to make it a little easier.  Well, the search is over!  Sign up with 9thandElm.com and get exclusive deals handpicked by our buyers delivered daily to your inbox.

The two tank tops from FreeBird Cloth are some of the softest tank tops I've ever owned.  The designs are so creative and the detailing is incredible as well.  The tanks were made using earth friendly processes and non toxic water based ink which gives the tanks that vintage feel. 

The chevron skirt by Jupe de Abby is soft and comfortable.  The elastic waistband can be folded down as needed (this helps for short people like me!).  The colors are bright and vibrant and, as there are many colors to this skirt, the options for styling are virtually endless!

[REVIEW] Birthday In A Box

My Dear Friends,

#ad Since Halloween is tomorrow, I wanted to share my costume with you.  I'm going as an Olympic Goddess.  I got my costume from Birthday In A Box and I couldn't be happier.  The customer service is incredible and the shipping was crazy fast!

I like BirthdayInABox.Com because it's such a versatile site.  It's a one stop shop for any party supply you could possibly need; they also carry a full line of costumes, baking supplies, games and personalized items.  Why search all over the Internet when you can find it all in one convenient place?!

Let's get back to my costume (I'm so excited!), shall we?  I chose the Olympic Goddess Costume (Style # CC1688) which retails at $36.99 and comes in sizes 1X (fits sizes 16-18), 2X (fits sizes 18-20) and 3X (fits sizes 20-22).   

I'm going to complete my look with some false eyelashes, a shimmery lip and some gold bracelets & sandals.  I think I'm going to curl my hair and wear a half up-do around the headband.  I like that this costume is 'sexy' without being over the top.  The fact that it's incredibly comfortable doesn't hurt either!

Olympic Goddess Costume

So what do you think?  Do you like how I styled it?  Personally, I think it's going to look amazing!  

Don't forget that you can get Free Shipping on all orders over $70 or get up to $40 in Free Personalized Merchandise when you use code "BB70"!  Use code "PARTY10" and save 10% off of all Party Supplies.  Code "KIDS15" will get you 15% off all Kids Costumes.  Those are some really great deals!


I was given the aforementioned costume in exchange for an honest review.
  No money exchanged hands and all opinions are my own.

Introducing The Fall/Winter Scala Collezione Collection!

My Dear Friends,

#ad Introducing the Fall/Winter Scala Collezione collection, where boiled wool hats are the savvy consumers’ choice in weather resistant and fashion head-wear. The eco-friendly process of altering the material eliminates the usage of harsh chemicals while effectively shrinking the wool. Subsequently, the heat traps air chambers, forming a natural barrier against hot and cold temperatures and wind. This technique matched with Dorfman Pacific’s keen eye for design and artistry creates the ultimate cold weather accessory. The felt like texture is softer, warmer and eliminates the itchy feeling associated with wool.

Function joins elegance and fun with the boiled wool options. Classic silhouettes and fashion choices are available in conventional and pop colors. Cloche, cap, cadet, newsboy and classic brimmed shapes are some of the highlights of the assortment. There is a style (with over 15 featured) and color for every outfit, outerwear, fashion and function need. The varied designs work well with casual or trendy outerwear from early Fall through Winter and retail for an affordable $30 - $40.

Scala Collezione's collection of boiled wool is perfect for teens and women of every age. LW242, a newsboy best seller is satin lined, an intelligent feature designed to protect the wearer’s hair. The popular cloche, LW399 comes in an array of 14 colors including navy, charcoal, wine, plum, black and ivory. For a twist on this timeless hat, LW316 features two tones and bow detailing in 5 wonderful combinations (Black/Charcoal, Camel/Chocolate, Lt grey/Charcoal, Rust/Olive, Ivory/Camel). LW266, the Cadet silhouette comes in an array of fashion and basic colors that will make every outfit pop with this fun accessory. Shown below are top sellers: black, burgundy, charcoal, olive, camel. Especially noteworthy is LW566, a new headband embellished with rosettes that is a MUST HAVE in its 5 colors (black, charcoal, ivory, wine and chocolate) that work into every wardrobe. This contemporary piece is a novel alternative to traditional hats.

{Review} Resvology Age Corrective Eye Cream

My Dear Friends,

It's never too early to practice good skincare.  I feel like my problem area, in particular, is dark circles and puffiness in my eye area.  I discovered Resvology's Age Corrective Eye Cream recently and have so far been pleased with the results.

This hydrating and rejuvenating anti-aging eye cream is infused with active peptides, botanicals and the multi-patented 4-AR Molecule™ which has been clinically-proven to help fuel healthy gene activity by 330%.  The lightweight formula helps minimize fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet while improving skin firmness, deflating puffiness and brightening dark circles.  The cream is perfect for all skin types!  

The 4-AR Molecule™ I mentioned earlier is the only stabilized ester of the widely recognized “youth-molecule” resveratrol.   4-AR Molecule™ was discovered when Resvology's distinguished scientists, specialists studying gene-activation, were awarded a medical grant to study the problems of aging skin from the National Institutes of Health in Washington, DC.  After 10 years of medical research, they created the pharmaceutical-grade, multi-patented 4-AR Molecule™ -- a clinically-designed solution to help tackle specific aspects of aging skin.

Since the cream features amazing ingredients like Oligo Tetrapeptides, Panthenol, Barley, Sandalwood & Olive Extracts, your skin is guaranteed to feel healthier, firmer and more hydrated.  Resvology's Age Corrective Eye Cream is the winner of both the 2013 HBA Global New Product Showcase “People’s Choice Award’ & the HBA Global 2013 ‘The Best of SPLASH! 2013’ Award!  This fabulous cream is even loved by celebrities!  Click here to see who loves Resvology.  Visit their site to learn more about their line of products & how they can help you have healthier skin! 

I was given this product to review by Brandbacker in exchange for an honest review.
