These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: A Blog Hop and Grand Giveaway!

Laura from Where the Magic Happens is hosting an amazing Favorite Things Blog Hop and Giveaway! I am so excited to be a part of this huge event! I have never seen anything like it before! There are over 60 bloggers participating, all giving away a different prize of their choice! There will be 7 lucky winners of 7 different amazing prize packages! 

I am sharing a few of my favorite things with you below. First, my favorite place to shop! 
 My favorite place to shop is a home decor boutique not too far from where I live. Best Wishes has a little bit of everything- Vera Bradley, holiday decor, kitchen necessities, and stationary. A gift certificate from this oasis is always at the top of my list Christmas Wish List. It is amazing, and my favorite time to shop there is the holidays! Just take a look at this gorgeous inspiration!

I also adore shopping at Sephora for beauty products during the holidays. My favorite gifts to give and get are Philosophy's holiday gift packs. They are have the most scrumptious scents, are packaged beautifully, and are reasonably priced. Everyone loves Philosophy! While you are at it, try some samples of Shiseido's Benefiance products. They are amazing! I love their Day Emulsion, Night Cream, and Eye Contour Cream. These facial products are perfect for my 40-something skin, but Shiseido has skincare lines for all ages.

My absolute FAVORITE restaurant is a non-chain called Canal Street Grill. It is in the town next to mine, and worth the drive! Whenever I go, I always say I am going to try something different- but I always get the same thing! Chicken Picatta with cheddar mashed potatoes. They serve it with most delicious green beans! There is nothing like this place! I have become a food snob and can't stand chains anymore because of places like this!

And now on to the exciting part- the giveaways! 
My absolute favorite thing to buy on TpT is clipart by Krista Wallden of Creative Clips. I love so many things about this clipart. Aside from her adorable artwork, I love the fact that she includes blackline versions of her clipart. I also love that her prices are incredibly reasonable. She is so talented and creative! She has come up with monthly clubs and seasonal clubs. She even has a Christmas surprise "gift" that you can buy now for $5, and you will be able to "open" it on Christmas Eve. So cute! That is why I chose a monthly club of your choice as my favorite thing I am giving to you if you are the winner of Prize Pack #3! Click on the picture below to go to her store! (If you don't have a need for clipart, you can spend your $20 on anything you like at TpT!) 

As part of this giveaway, my Classroom Elf Paper Bag Scrapbook will be on sale for 50% off until the 14th. My class has been having so much fun with this file!

  7. The home boutique looks like it is right up my alley! I prefer to shop small businesses in my community, especially during the holidays, to avoid the crowds and find unique gifts!
