I love this Giveaway! It’s definitely one of the most fun! I’ve teamed up with 12 other bloggers, and we’ve all collected a bunch of our favorite things to Giveaway! I’m just going to say, doing this Giveaway has really showed me that I have A LOT of favorite things…and I really, really wish I could include every single one of them for you! (Like my obsession with leopard print this year, I basically live in my leopard print scarf, and I just couldn’t find another like it!)

Not only is this giveaway a great way to drum up gift ideas and/or stocking stuffers, but it’s a great wish list for yourself as well! Every single gift basket is full of fabulous favorites and gift ideas that I know you’ll just love! Keep them for yourself or re-gift to a friend..either way, these are all super fun gifts to WIN!

Here is a closer look at some of MY favorite things!

Favorite Things Giveaway! PicMonkey Collage ~Essie Nail Polish in “Good as Gold” I love this color, it’s so festive and metallic-like this time of year, and soooo pretty! Plus you really only need one coat and I love the time saver! (And it matches perfectly with the red lips!)

~Revlon “Just Bitten Kissable” in “Adore” I love a good red lip. It’s the color that you’ll see on me from October through the holidays, and actually at night all year round. Red lips are beautiful, sassy, and so fun! Plus they pretty much match everything this time of year and look soooo good! The Revlon shade is perfect..and it’s a stain so it’s much longer lasting!

~”Blistex Lip Vibrance” Blistex is always my go-to for chap stick…especially this time of year when the dry weather is drying out my lips! I’ve always been a Blistex “Silk & Shine” girl..I keep them everywhere, so soft and smell so good. Recently they came out with this new one and I’m head over heels for it! It’s equally as moisturizing as the Silk and Shine, but it has just a small bit of tint to it, which is so great, because when our skin is so pale, a little bit of tint on your lips can totally bring your face alive and brighten it up!

~Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Body Butter..If you’ve followed along here, you already know my love for this stuff. Silky, thick (in a good way!), and so moisturizing. My legs get so scaly and dry right now, this stuff smells and feels amazing and works wonders! I had my dad send me an extra just so I can give you guys’s fantastic.

~Bath and Body Works 3-wick Candle in “Marshmallow Fireside”..what’s to say? B&BW candles are my favorite..I stock up every time they have a sale. This smell is one of my’s so comforting and homey, it smells like the holidays..I just love it!

~Statement Necklaces! I just love them, all of them! I got this one at Francesca’s. They’re so fun to mix and match with colors and they can take any outfit up a notch..I love the colors in this one so much!

Favorite Things Giveaway! ~Cookie Butter! with chocolate…oh my. This is one of my favorite ingredients ever to bake with and spoon into my mouth. When I was pregnant, I’m pretty sure I went through about a jar a week, just eating it by the spoonful’s. So, flippin, good.

~Vanilla Bean all time favorite. I always have a jar of this around, and I tend to always use this over buying vanilla beans, it’s easier, and loaded with vanilla beans and flavor. love love love it.

~Cinnamon Chips…out of alllll the types and flavors of baking chips out there, these are my favorite by a landslide. Hands down. I hate that they’re a seasonal item, but try to stock up on them before they disappear again..though you can usually get them on amazon. These are another thing that I can just demolish by the handfuls. So much flavor and so unique!

~Blank Note them. I think that hand written “Thanks” or “Just saying Hi!” are so much more fun to receive! Usually mail is boring and bills, but getting a little surprise note in the mail is sooo nice. I love blank cards for any occasion!

~Magnetic”Let them eat cake!” Notepad with a Mini Spatula..this is super cute and really handy. I always have one of these on my fridge..when I’m cooking and run out of something, I love having instant access to write it down before I forget. Then I can always add it to my grocery list later on. Must have!

~Camelbak Water Bottle..I am water obsessed. It starts first thing in the morning, and I chug it all day long. I have a 32 ounce bottle that I just refill over and over with water and a piece of lemon. I carry it with me everywhere I go. SO I thought it only appropriate to share my favorite water bottle..and if you don’t drink a lot of water, hopefully this helps! (A squeeze of lemon or some fruit make all the difference if you find water kind of boring! 😉 )

~Wooden Spoons…love them, couldn’t live without them. They’re the first thing I grab every single time I’m cooking. Always. I stayed with my mom for a few weeks back in September, and she didn’t have any! I went and bought some because I really can’t stand cooking without them.

~A Whisk..I’m sure everyone has one, but it my opinion, you can never have to many! Another tool I use almost daily and love so so just mixes everything so perfectly!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of
    the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think
    its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show
    the same outcome.
