My Favorite Things… And Giveaway! (Spring 2014 Edition)

My Favorite Things… And Giveaway! (Spring 2014 Edition)

Sing it with me ~ “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Brown paper packages tied up with string. These are a few of my favorite things…”

I wanted to tell you about a few of the things that I am loving this spring. When I find a treasure, I can’t wait to share it with my friends!

Pssssst…Keep reading to find out how you can be entered in a fabulous giveaway!

These are a few of my favorite things...and giveaway!

~ BookBook iPhone and laptop coversΒ – First up, my phone cover! It looks like a small literary classic, and showcases my love of antique books. It’s unique, timeless, and keeps my phone incredibly protected. My Beloved and my dad surprised me with a laptop in the fall, and I must have been a very good girl last year – because I got the BookBook laptop cover for Christmas!

~ One Little Momma earrings – Are y’all following Kilee of One Little Momma? If not, you should really go check her out. I enjoy following her on Facebook for all of her updates! She’s a bargain fashionista, creative DIYer, and business owner. I cannot rave enough about her fabulous handmade earrings!

One Little Mama Earrings Giveaway

My Beloved let me pick out my own Valentine gift this year, and I chose earrings from Kilee’s Etsy store, One Little Belt. They are lightweight, have great color, and can mesh with any style! I wear them almost every day, and get so many compliments on them!

My Favorite Things ~ A Giveaway!~ Memory Foam pillows – A few weeks ago I decided that my smushy/unsupportive pillows had to go. I searched through products and reviews, and finally landed on this gem from JC Penney. Since making the switch, my nights of tossing and turning are over!

Memory Foam Pillow - I sleep so much better!

~ Japanese Cherry Blossom body cream from Bath & Body Works – This is my very favorite scented lotion. I love that it’s not too strong, but not too sweet either. It’s a happy medium! My Beloved even says that I smell delicious when I wear it. πŸ˜‰

My Favorite Things ~ An Exciting Giveaway!

~Β Say Goodbye to Survival Mode,Β by Crystal PaineΒ – I know that I’ve raved about this before, but I can’t NOT include this book on my list of favorite things. When my friend Crystal Paine, (aka Money Saving Mom), released her book in January, it debuted on the New York Times Best Sellers list! In this must-read book, Crystal takes you by the hand and leads you on a journey of simple stepsΒ to “reduce stress, sleep more, and restore your passion for life.” This book helped inspire my decision to take better care of myself this year with our Healthier, Happier You series! I can’t recommend it enough!

When life is just too much ~ Say Goodbye to Survival Mode

~Β Orchids – One of the ways that I like to add beauty into our home is with fresh flowers. Orchids are a fantastic way to do this, as they are relatively cheap, but they last for a long time. I can’t keep much of anything green alive, but even I can handle adding 3 ice cubes to the vase each week. I love the stunning purple orchid that my Beloved gave me for Valentine’s Day!

Orchids - One of my favorite things!

~Β Chai Lattes – *Happy sigh* Comfort to a weary soul. There’s just something about sipping on a chai latte that just makes the whole day a little better! Week 7a
