ScenTrend 2013 + GIVEAWAY!

It’s giveaway time! Today I have a fabulous one from SCENTSY! I’m a huge fan of their products and this past week I was lucky enough to get to try out their new Scentrend for 2013, Voilet Leaf!

scentsy scentrend 2013The new Voilet Leaf is a great scent for rest and relaxation… just what I needed after this crazy holiday season! I snuggled up in my furry Sonoma slippers and soothing beauty mask, plugged in my Voilet Leaf Scentsy with a bit of the Apple Press scent, and took just 10 minutes for myself. It was heaven!

new scentsy scentrend 2013I love the sweet, clean smell of this new scent. Extracted from the leaves of the violet plant, the Violet Leaf fragrance exudes an organic, green fragrance. It’s the perfect mixing fragrance, or great to use alone!

scentrend 2013 scentsyTo get started you just place one or more sections of a Scentsy bar into the warmer dish, plug in and turn it on. Super easy to use!

scenty-burner-light-bulbIn case you’re not familiar, Scentsy warmers use a low watt bulb to slowly melt specially formulated wax in tons of different fragrances. There’s no flame; you just plug it in for a safe way to enjoy their sweet smells.

Tacky Treasures: Ugly Christmas Sweaters {and more}

I really didn’t have anything to post today, but I recently stumbled across my friend Chelsea’s Etsy shop and just had to share… mostly because it’s absolutely hilarious!

Chelsea (from the über hip DIY craft blog Two Twenty One and my partner-in-crime at the Haven conference) started an Etsy shop called Tacky Treasures specializing in Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Seriously folks, if you’re planning on attending a Tacky Christmas Sweater Party this holiday season, you have to check this site out!

Of course you have the good ol’ ugly Christmas sweaters…

And the fabulous 80s Christmas sweatshirts….
The teddy bear one is calling my name.

Maybe you’re wanting a holiday vest?
I personally prefer the sequined Santa. Yeah, it’s pretty sweet.

Turtlenecks or mock necks anyone? It would look great under your vest!

And if you really wanting to come out a winner in the Ugly Christmas Sweater contest, I think embroidered snowman overalls might just get you that first place trophy.

Make sure you visit Chelsea’s Etsy shop Tacky Treasures for more amazing clothes. She’s got 68 different items for sale right now… yep, you could clothe your entire family. Christmas card photos anyone? haha!
