Holiday Giveaway: My Favorite Things!

Sometimes I wish I was a big fancy shmancy blogger who could host crazy good giveaways (like vacations and home makeovers and things of that nature) to readers. The truth is pretty much my audience consists of my mom, Joe’s mom, and a few other friends and family members… and that still makes me very happy since connecting with those people  was the very point starting this blog!


Even though I’m not big and fancy, I do have holiday spirit and plans to do a few giveaways this month just to say thank you to those who have been so kind and supportive of my blogging and photography over the past few years. Today’s giveaway is a fun one: my favorite things!

Over this past year, I’ve discovered a few products that make me feel like less of a hot mess and more put together. Today, I’m giving away one Lipsense color, one Lipsense gloss, one pair of one size Lularoe leggings, and one set of Impress Manicure!

Let me briefly explain why I love these products and share a few awkward selfies.

First of all, imPRESS Manicure is a press-on gel manicure. It takes less than 10 minutes to apply, stays on for about 5-7 days (for me at least), and they don’t damage your nails when removing. Each package contains 30 nails, which would actually be enough for 3 manicures if you’re careful. (I’m not careful… I usually get two manis out of one package and then use the extra nails if I need to replace any)

I’ve experimented with all sorts of nail products over the past few years including Jamberry Nails and a few different nail stickers. These are probably my favorite because they are so affordable, lightweight,  and look like a $40 gel manicure.

Next product… Lipsense! One of my friends held an online party this fall and I decided to give it a try. I definitely fell in love with the product.

This lipstick will truly last for about 18 hours and not come off on coffee mugs, wine glasses, spouses, or children. It’s my new obsession/addiction and I definitely don’t consider myself a make-up person so this is kind of a big deal.

Lastly, this year I finally tried Lularoe clothing after getting invited to all of the Facebook groups and parties like I’m sure many of you have been. All the pieces I have purchased have been extremely comfy, versatile, and stylish. After having baby #3 this year, all those clothing features felt quite important! Depending on how I style the clothes, they can be perfect for running errands with kids, looking professional while taking photos, or cute enough for a date night or evening out with my lady friends. (Here’s all my selfies with half my face missing… I sacrificed having my eyeballs in the frame for the sake of getting more of the outfit!)

Here’s what I mean about the versatility…. Two above pieces styled as totally different outfits!

And yes, those dang leggings are as buttery soft as all the propaganda claims them to be. I’ve worn mine to the gym, while out and about, or just relaxing at home. Also, the blogpost was put together while wearing Lularoe leggings ; )

So here I am, rocking my Lipsense and Lularoe… note no lipstick smudges on my coffee mug. #whoa

Anyways, giveaway details! As mentioned above, I am giving away one Lipsense color (Bombshell), one Lipsense Gloss (Glossy), one pair of Lularoe one size leggings (fits sizes 2-12), and one set of Impress Manicure (Lighten Up). Just comment on the post about what product you are most excited about trying! I will close the giveaway on Sunday 12/10 at midnight CST. I will draw and contact the winner on Monday and get the prizes mailed out next week!

(^^^Here are the three products put together so you can see all the colors.^^^)

Thanks again for reading and Happy Holidays!

(And good luck!!!)
