Favorites List #3 AND an Anthropologie Gift Card Giveaway! – Winner Announced

The winner of the $25 Anthropologie gift card goes to…


There’s nothing I really want for Christmas. I just want to have a safe trip back home to Kentucky to see family!

Congrats and Happy Holidays!


I keep coming up with things I love in hopes that maybe you’ll end up loving them too. To go along with my favorites list I’m also having a give away. One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift card to one of my favorite stores – Anthropologie.  It’s one of those stores where I browse more than buy – but want everything it has. I find the neatest kitschy kitchen pieces and a lot of home decor inspiration from Anthropologie. Not to mention I love all of their jewelry, candles, bathroom/bedroom linens, and clothes — oh gawd, I just love it all! Here’s to sharing a little bit of my love with you.

Maybe with this gift card you can get these cute little hedgehog measuring cups I’ve been eyeing. Or these gorgeous earrings. Ooor this sweet little monogram bracelet.

Details for entering the giveaway are at the bottom of this post.

Now onto my favorites list. This list is comprised of products I love and use everyday. Things I can’t live without at the moment. And if you’re having a hard time finding stocking stuffers then this list was made just for you!! Happy Holidays! – E

I’ve been using this mascara for years now. It’s not clumpy and has a nice coat. I take mine in Very Black.

I love this as a bronzer in Medium Deep.

I like to swoosh on a kiss of this to my cheeks, in the color, Warm Soul.

I have rosacea and just found this little green gem. It’s great for balancing out all of that red.

I love this lemon-aide concealer. It makes your eyes “pop” and makes you look bright and awake, even when you’re not.

I’ve also been using this concealer in 01 Light. It’s a nice brightener, like the one above.

This is my new favorite shade of lipstick. I wanted something different from my same-old same-old hues of peach and peachy. It’s a subtle pink, soft and light, in the color, Angel. And when I want something a smudge richer, I pucker up to this lipstick, in the color Pink Plaid.

After a favorite skincare line got discontinued, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect cream face wash. This has been great so far. It’s creamy and lightly foams when wet. It has a nice light fragrance that’s refreshing as well.

I’ve been enjoying this night cream from Origins. I rub it on my neck and face. It’s silky and smells like citrus and it’s just lovely.

This has been a staple of mine for 6 years and counting. It’s a glorious dry oil that absorbs quickly. Sometimes I put this on first, before I apply my night cream, and sometimes just on it’s own at night. Believe it or not, this little bottle has lasted for a whole year! A little goes a long way.:)

I keep a tin of this rosebud salve by my bedside. And a good girlfriend of mine got me hooked onto the strawberry version (I keep that one in my purse). It smells like my childhood. Like Strawberry Shortcake and scratch’n’sniff stickers. I just love everything about it.

I always swipe this SPF 15 lip balm on when I’m outside. The sun can be brutal on your skin – even your lips need to be protected! My favorite color is Sugar Rose Tinted.

This shower oil is absolutely glorious. I use it in the shower to shave my legs. A little goes a long way for this one too.

I’m the biggest fan of the color coral. So when I saw Essie had the perfect coral nail polish, in Tart Deco, I had to get it.


Now for the giveaway. Tell me, what  do you really want for Christmas this year?  Diamonds?  Shoes?  A slow-cooker?  Or just to be with your family?

One entry per person. All entries must be in by Wednesday, December 12th, 2012, 11:59pm PST. Winner will be announced Thursday.

Good Luck!

    There are definitely a bunch of material items I’d like this year (boots, yoga pants, a cookbook or two…) but it’s been such a stressful year that I mostly just want a day when I can unplug and just be with friends and family.

    I can think of a ton of objects I would love to have for Christmas or any time of the year… but I am most looking forward to celebrating my first Christmas with my husband.

    Christmas means that all of my hubby’s grad school applications are turned in and we get to relax for a week with no stress! All I want is a few days to sit, breathe, and relax. Love your favorites list. Essie polish is one of my favs.
