Friday Favorites and a Giveaway

Hi y'all!  Welcome to Friday.  We are less than one week away from Thanksgiving!  I am so looking forward to it.  This weekend we have a family birthday party for two of Phillip's nieces and then Saturday night we are going to put of the Christmas decorations! My favorite time of the year.  I imagine there will be hot chocolate and Christmas music involved.

I also apologize for a lack of a mid-week post this week.  With traveling back from Horseshoe Bay and then Wednesday night I did not sleep at all.  And when I mean at all, I mean less than hour.  Ugh.  And when I get less than 4 hours of sleep, I get nauseous.  So Thursday was not pretty.

But here we at Friday!  And we have a giveaway this week too.  So stay tuned at the end of the post.

Since Christmas is 5 WEEKS AWAY, the next few Friday Favorite are going to be geared toward gift giving.  This week?  Fun little Thank You Christmas gifts.  These would be perfect for teachers, your hair dresser, your baby sitter, your administrative assistant, you get the picture. 

For Your Jewelry Fan

Kate Spade Glitter Studs
Gorjana Bracelet
MantraBand Bracelet
American Atelier Jewelry Box
Panacea Earrings
Stella and Dot Sparkle Studs

I love all of these items.  You can never go wrong with a pair of the Kate Spade Glitter Studs.  They make every outfit pop.  I love pairing them with jeans and a button down.  And the agate on that jewerly box is gorgeous.  Of course I included my favorite Stella & Dot Sparkle Studs.  They are my go-to every day earring.

For Your Hostess with the Mostest

Gibson Latte Bowls
Cheers Champagne Flutes
Craving Slate Board
Liquid Therapy Wine Glasses
Baby It's Cold Outside Pillow
But First Coffee Mugs

We all have that friend - the consummate entertainer.  They always have fun appetizer plates, the best music, and people hate to leave at the end of the night.  Here are some fun options for gifts for your favorite entertainer.

For Your Fashionista

Sole Society Capri Tote
bp Geo Print Scarf
PJ Salvage Pajamas
bp Infinity Scarf
bp Foldover Clutch
Caslon Rib Knit Scarf
bp V Neck Sweater

I love the foldover clutch.  I have it in a cognac color and it is the perfect size.  It looks cute dressed up or with jeans.  I am eyeing those pajamas for myself as well as that sweater!

For the Makeup Junkie

Lancome Juicy Tubes
Diorshow Mascara
Philosophy Sweet Treat Set
Fresh Sugar Lib Balm
Jo Malone Perfume Sampler
YSL Lip Gloss Trio
Bobbi Brown Eye and Lip Palette
Two Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette

My hands down favorite in this list is The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette.  Man oh man.  First of all, you open it up and you immediately smell chocolate.  Yum!  The colors blend so well.  It is my new go-to every day and dress up palette for my eyes.  Another favorite is Jo Malone perfume.  My favorite Jo Malone scent is English Pear and Freesia, but you can't go wrong with any of them.  Philosophy, Lancome, and YSL always put out great gift sets.

I hope this weeks favorites gave you some inspiration for your holiday shopping!  I know I'd be delighted if any of these showed up under the tree or in my stocking.

And now...I promised you a giveaway, didn't I?  I am giving away one pair of the Stella & Dot Sparkle Studs!  If you win them you could keep them for yourself or gift them to someone this holiday season.  Although my vote would be to keep them for yourself.

It's easy to enter, just use the Rafflecopter below to submit you entry.  Giveaway closes on Thursday, November 24.  Open to residents of the US and Canada.

Good Luck!
