Bloggers' Favorite Things Giveaway Series

Bloggers Favorite Things

OPI "Bubble Bath" This has been my go to nail polish colors for years. It is such a classic that looks great on everyone!

Lancôme  Cils Booster XL Enhancing Mascara Base  Ignore the price because it is a miracle worker! After using it for several weeks, my lashes are thicker and longer than ever and this preps them daily to look their best!

Lancôme Hypnôse Drama' Instant Full Body Volume Mascara If you are going to invest in department store mascara, this is the one to buy. I've tried them all and I have to say this is hands down the absolute best! You won't need any falsies, because this will give you the long full lashes you want in 2 coats.

Prada "Candy" Eau de Parfum Spray I love the sweet playful smell of this. I wear it daily.

Old Navy Scarf One can never have too many scarves.  This mint infinity scarf makes a fabulous gift and will look great on everyone. 

Russel + Hazel Acrylic Stapler Be still my heart ... Acrylic and gold office supplies! Any desk will look chic with this.

"Where'd You Go Bernadette?" Such a fun and fast paced book-you will not want to put it down!

Emi Jay Hair Ties Once I tried these hair ties, I haven't used a rubber band since. They are well worth the price. One pack of 3 or 4 will last years and they don't tear your hair...just what the hairdresser ordered! 

Capri Blue Volcano Candle My most favorite candle ever!! **See below for more on this.

Smith's Rosebud Salve Tube  The cult classic now comes in a tube. No worries about getting sticky fingers. The mint is a nice extra touch and I always keep this at arm's length for a quick grab. So good!

Giraffe Trinket Dish How precious is this to store your fine jewels? Playful and chic-exactly what I love!

Spanx Reversible Tights These tights are a total gamechanger! I've had the same pair for 8 years and they're still going strong. They are thick and opaque and since they are reversible, you have 2 pairs in one. And in standard Spanx style, they will suck you in and shape you better than you could hope.

J.Crew Downtown Field Jacket A total classic.  Every girl needs one of these. I have the olive color and wear it all the time!

Bobble Water Bottle Quit buying bottled water and just grab one of these. This has a built in filter that you can later buy replacements for.  It is so convenient and I love the simple design.

Frends 'Layla' Headphones If you listen to music as much as I do, these are totally justifiable! How precious are these?

Coach Boyfriend Bracelet Watch I gifted myself with this watch a few years ago and have worn it every day since. Such a fabulous watch, I must say!

Alex and Ani Glisten Expandable Wire Bangle A little sparkle for a simple arm party!

Alex and Ani Feather Expandable Wire Bangle Add this bangle to your wrist and start your colletcion. Alex and Ani are so good because you can wear so many and mix and match!

Alex and Ani Initial Adjustable Wire Bangle I can't help but love my bracelet like this. Friends can't "borrow" this...if you catch my drift!

West Elm Cozy Throw Regardless of the outside temps, I like to keep my apartment cool enough to cozy up with blankets. This is the perfect option to do just that.

Rifle Paper Co. Botanical Calendar I have a mild obsession with Rifle Paper Co. I love the nostalgic feel of their prints. This Calendar is absolutely gorgeous if you ask me! Santa, are you listening?

Target Navy Pajama Set I sleep in Pajama Sets every night night. I love Target's PJ sets because they are reasonably priced, comfy and stand the test of time. This pair is such a classic! If you're looking for a gift idea, buy a pair of these and have them monogrammed on the pocket.

Sam Edelman 'Lucille' Bootie Every time I pass these in Nordstrom (which is a lot), I always stop and dream. They are the most delicious leather and would look great with jeans and dresses too!

"The Southerner's Handbook"  Top of my list is this book!  This book is published by Garden & Gun, so you know if must be good!
