GIVEAWAY: Mia Mariu Makeup Gift Pack! -CLOSED-

Winner

I'm one of those people that gets asked if they are tired a lot.  Most of the time I'm not :)...so I know I just look like crap.  I went to a beauty counter at a mall and told them this and they did me up.  Did I look awake? yes.  Did I look like I could squirt you from a flower on my lapel? YES!   For me it's about wearing a little more makeup than I usually do, and choosing the right colors.  I still remember years ago my Mom asking me if I had a black eye...lol..I didn't LOL
Anyway, I was excited to try out Mia Mariu Makeup products!

As you guessed, Holly is a real person, with real talent. :) It seems obvious she loves what shes does not only on Pretty Betty Designs, but in life. Looking through Holly's shop,  I'm inspired to buy more vintage-styled items; and of course from her shop.  :) There is a very unique style at hand here; one not to be missed!


I was able to review these unique, and stunning earrings above from Pretty Betty Designs.  They were suggested by Holly, and I'm so glad I took her up on the suggestion.  They aren't what I would normally choose, but I absolutely love them! I love the contrast and mixture of metal that is used, as well as the emerald rhinestones and Ruby Zios…

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Last night I made my favorite autumn soup!  I got the recipe from a friend but have made some slight changes to it since then. 

My version calls for:
1 medium sized butternut squash, peeled, seeded and nicely cubed.
1 roasted red pepper (I either roast my own or use a the canned roasted peppers from a jar.)
1 medium sized carrot
1/2 of an onion
32 fluid ounces of chicken stock (or chicken broth or water)
1 chicken bouillon
Crush Red Pepper Flakes to taste

I boil it all together  until the vegetables are tender, then I blend it all together!
We add some crush red pepper flakes to our own soup bowles.  I add this last because I don't add any heat to my toddler's soup :)
Enjoy!

UT GIVEAWAY: Gardner Village Ride To A Witch Tickets! -CLOSED-

Review by Veronica Winner

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been blogging about Gardner Village. We hope that it has inspired you to pay them a visit especially during this beautiful autumn that we've been having! It's the perfect place for getting some fresh air, getting a bite to eat and walking in a pretty place.  I've been twice in the last couple of weeks. My family and I went to enjoy some breakfast during their Farmer's Market which is every Saturday through October 27th.


My son and I also went this last Friday to play with a friend and her two toddlers.  Did you know they have a small petting zoo? They do! We saw the most adorable calf and baby alpaca! Those were my favorite. It's only $4 per child to go into the petting zoo, and I love that accompanying adults are free.   My son's favorite was probably the pony ride ($5) and the itty bitty hay maze with slide and trampoline! ($2)  It's perfect for little ones! For your older kids, have them go o…

Gardner Village Series: Pine Needles!

A few months ago, my friend, Jenifer introduced me to a place at Gardner Village. I must have missed it because I've only been sewing for about a year, but now that it has been discovered - oh ,the fun we'll have!  The store is called Pine Needles and it is an incredible store. It's so fun to wander through the store and imagine all the things that one day I will attempt to make!


On their website they say quilting and needlework is a dying art, but you won't find that at Pine Needles!  Quilting, cross stitching, embroidery supplies and one of a kind work by local artisans.  It's so fun to see the quilts that hang from the walls. They are truly unique and beautiful! They have hundreds of embroidery patterns as well. Their fabric brands include, Moda, Windham, Michael Miller, Lakehouse, Benartex, Marcus Brothers, Henry Class and more! They also have beads and unique buttons to decorate or embellish your work!
