Giveaway! Mirth & Merry handmade soap

November 20, 2013 By: Mary Ann Williams

I think handmade things are sexy.  Especially when you receive the box and you can *smell* the contents as your package is being handed to you.  Such is the joy of receiving handmade soap by Mirth & Merry and they are giving away soaps for the Holiday Season just for us!  Can you say (scented) stocking stuffer?

Alethia is on a roll here!  She’s making another appearance in the form of networking… she introduced me to her friend, Jeremy, who became completely entranced by the art of soap making and so he started his own business.  I love it!  These soaps have so much care and love put into them.  The ingredients are all natural and talk about FRESH (!!)… holy moly.  My nose is still on a scent high.

I think I’ve smelled almost everyone one of their soap varieties and they’re divine.  They’re creamy and dreamy when used at the sink or in the shower, too!  I like that I know exactly what is on my hands and body when I’m using this soap… no suspicious or unhealthy ingredients.

Mirth & Merry is giving away FOUR prizes for this giveaway (we love multiple winners!) and if you’re a lucky winner, you’ll receive two bars of Mirth & Merry soap (the scents are a surprise!).  This giveaway is open to US residents only.  Good luck!

Giveaway! Magical Fashionista

November 08, 2013 By: Mary Ann Williams

Do you like horoscopes?  Do you like fashion?  If you said “yes,” then this book is for you!  And we’re giving away a free copy to the winner of this giveaway.  Llewellyn Publications and I have been waiting patiently for Tess Whitehurst‘s book, Magical Fashionista, to release so that we could do this giveaway on School of Moxie and Beautiful Giveaways.  When I finally received my copy, I was totally thrilled!

Magical Fashionista

Here is the formal book description:

Discover how to use fashion to become your most gorgeous self, attract good fortune, and attract what you desire most.
Far from being superficial, fashion with intention can be a powerful, life-affirming practice. Popular author Tess Whitehurst explains how to build a wardrobe of beautiful items that enhance your attributes and personal magnetism. Discover how to select clothes, shoes, jewelry, and other accessories with simple guidance that will help you look and feel your best and manifest positive life changes. Put together empowering outfits every day–and for every occasion–with simple guidance on everything from the color, material, and pattern of clothes to gemstones, nail polish, and tattoos. Drawing on astrology, feng shui, the Wheel of the Year, moon phases, and more, this unique mystical fashion guide teaches you how to build a wardrobe of beautiful items that will express your true essence and attract what you desire most.

I’ve learned so much already from this book.  It goes WAY beyond fashion, but rather uses fashion as a means of digging deep into yourself to uncover what you want out of life.  Fashion, therefore, becomes an external expression of one’s inner manifestation.  I have an added bonus because I sew most of my own clothes and Magical Fashionista has helped me re-think my decisions for fabrics and styling combinations.  I’m so glad that Llwellyn introduced me to Tess Whitehurst!  She has a kind and beautiful approach to helping others make their best lives and I think you’ll all really appreciate these qualities, too.

This giveaway is open to US residents and it will run for two weeks… as usual, at the end of the two weeks, a random winner will be chosen.  Remember, the more ways you enter, the more entries you get and the higher your odds!  Good luck and Blessed Be!

One World Coffees Giveaway: 6 Months of Fair Trade Coffee, Travel Mug, Mason Jar Glass (U.S.)

November 04, 2013 By: Stephanie Halligan

fair trade coffee

How the heck did it get so dark so quickly?!

Daylight savings officially ended on Sunday at 2 a.m., which means things start to turn darker as the days get shorter. I can already feel the effects. Despite gaining an hour of sleep, I seem even more tired than usual. And to top it off, sunset is at 4:47 tonight.

Come back, sun!!!

I know that I’ve been working hard the last month to get my life together so I could quit my job and start my own financial empowerment business. I can definitely use a little energy boost. And if you’re like me, the cold, darkening month of November means I want to do nothing more than stay in the bed under my toasty comforter.

The only way to fix that is 6 months worth of caffeine :)

Wake up! Enter to win 6 Months of Fair Trade Coffee from One World Coffees

A few weeks ago, I talked about how life is too short for crap – especially crappy coffee. In honor of the end of Daylight Savings and to help you all enjoy only the best in life, I’ve partnered with my college buddy Derek – founder of One World Coffees to giveaway 6 months of some of the most delicious fair trade coffee on the market.

When you sign up for One World Coffees, they’ll ship you fresh-roasted coffee from a farmer in a different part of the world once a month. One World Coffees sources their beans directly from farmers, which means fresher coffee. They are slow-roasted and shopped on the same day – a win-win for coffee drinkers and farmers alike.

Derek let me try a sample of Octoberfest – a complex, acidic and super smooth blend. Needless to say, it was the freshest Cup o’ Joe I’ve had in a long, long time :)

Enter below for your chance to win 6 months of super fresh coffee and a sweet One Worlds Coffee mason jar and travel mug. The giveaway will run for two weeks and the more ways you enter, the higher your odds of winning! Even if you don’t win, you can sign up to get a free sample of One World Coffees on their website.

US & Canada: Woodsnap Digital Pictures Printed on Wood!

I don’t know about you but I’m a huge fan of pictures printed on canvas.

When Woodsnap asked if I was interested in doing a review of a digital picture printed on wood, I thought that would be amazing!

They asked for my favorite picture and I sent him a picture one that I knew I really liked. It was taken last year, before my mom got sick, and it’s a picture of my mom, my sister, and me. It belonged on the mantle.

The marketing coordinator responded, telling me, “hey this one’s a little bit blurry” and I realize I’d sent over the wrong picture. I was really happy she asked, because I got to send the right picture, the one where we’re all in focus. I love Woodsnap‘s service.

The product is really fantastic, too!

Here’s a bit more information about them:

  • WoodSnaps are ¾” thick
  • We do custom sizes w/ a minimum size of 8”x8” and max size of 36”x44”
  • We print on Ply Birch wood
  • We are based in Southern California
  • Photos should be at least 300 dpi for all sizes
  • We do not print white ink. Any white will be printed transparent and show wood grains
  • Light color photos are recommended to show the wood grains through

Enter to win! And even if you don’t win, get 25% off just by using this code: JTBGC25.

These would make a lovely Christmas present.
