Time is running out!

Christmas is less than two weeks away! I gotta get on that ish. I only have two gifts so far — TWO! — and even those are unwrapped.

Oh, and I had all these grand plans to have everything done by the end of the November.

The end of November!? Ha! Yeah, right. I blame it all on that detour I took to Middle Earth.

Rotten hobbits…

In other news, HAPPY CATURDAY! Your nephew woke me up with a kitty back massage. I was sleeping on my tum, and he just crawled right on top. Made a bunch of biscuits on my shoulder blades. It actually felt pretty good…

Today is all about chores and Christmas for me. I have to make some headway on both, but if I finish early, I’m going to try to squeeze in a trip to HomeGoods (just to look around!).

I hope you’re doing something fun, or at least catching up on your chores, if you have any. Good luck in the giveaway. I’ll talk to you soon.

Rise and shine, morning glory! It’s a beautiful day!

Well…actually, I don’t really know what kind of day it is outside because I haven’t looked (it was raining cats and dogs and frogs last night!), but I’m sure it’ll be a beautiful day regardless of the weather.

I’m sitting in my father-in-law’s quiet office in Redding right now with my laptop on the floor and typing to poo. :) Yup, we drove up to Redding last night to see their new house (they recently moved), and I think I’m the only one awake.

I’m wondering if it snowed in the night… We shall see.

Good luck in the giveaway, and have a wonderful weekend, whatever you’re up to. I’m gonna see if I can find a place online now that sells doughnuts…

Not sells them online, online. I mean, find a place on the web that sells doughnuts in the area.

Never mind…

To whom it may concern,

It’s still dark outside and it’s almost 8. This, I do not like.

Stupid rainy weather!

Doh, as a Californian, now I feel obliged to say, “But we do need the rain,” which is true. It’s been way too dry here lately. All the creeks and ponds were drying up before this latest storm, and I bet the heritage oak trees on my hill are growing very narrow rings this year…

How’s the holiday shopping coming along? I was ahead of schedule, but now I’m starting to fall behind. I gotta get out there and brave the crowds! — and I could also use some vitamin M (makeup).

Good reason to visit Sephora. :)

I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway.

P.S. If you’re a fragrance lover, don’t forget to also enter this i smell great giveaway going on now. You could win $188 in products from the brand new i smell great line. It’s by the creator of CLEAN perfume.

[SPONSORED] Comment to Win $188 in Fragrances From i smell great and the Maker of CLEAN Perfume

Published in: Giveaways, i smell great, Just For Fun, Sponsored Post

i smell great (3)

The following post is sponsored by i smell great. From the creator of CLEAN perfume, the scents you love, extracted, encapsulated, bottled. Isn’t that great? Learn more at ismellgreat.com.

Too bad mixing and matching things isn’t always as easy as it is with the new i smell great fragrance line.

Like when it comes to mixing and matching prints… I start out trying to create a cool-girl outfit but usually end up looking like I created my wardrobe in the dark.

Or cooking! Note to self: randomly throwing things from the fridge into a pot, and then praying that it turns into something edible, is not a legit food philosophy. I can tell you first hand that it works less than half the time.

But when I mix and match and layer any of the four gentle fragrances in the new i smell great line, totally different story. Every concoction I try turns out fantastic.

i smell great (2)

New from the creator of CLEAN, i smell great currently has five products and four fragrances. I’ve just started using them and like every one.

Beach Babe, Candy Crush, Angel Cake and Wild Honey — the four scents — are gentle, surprisingly long-lasting and very light, so they aren’t overpowering, and they’re designed to be mixed and layered together to create unique scents (of course you can also wear them individually).

i smell great: the four fragrances

  • beach babe: Ah, take me away to a land of tropical breezes, coconut cream and golden suntan oil…
  • candy crush: Mouthwatering candied flower petals, rose syrup, icing sugar and candy hearts to tempt and tease you.
  • angel cake: A comfy, cozy scent with notes of pink icing, powdered sugar and candied almonds…with a touch of sweetness.
  • wild honey: A soothing synthesis of honey, brown sugar, Tahitian vanilla and sweet nectar make this intoxicating aroma irresistible.

i smell greatWhich brings me to this…

It’s giveaway time!

Want to explore i smell great for yourself? You, my friend, have clicked on the right blog. :) Enter now to win an aromatic prize package worth $188, featuring all four scents in the line. In no time you’ll be mixing and matching like a graduate of Givaudan!

The prize

One (1) lucky lady or gent will win a prize package valued at $188, including…

  • Eau de Parfum in Wild Honey ($68)
  • Wellness Water Mist in Angel Cake ($32)
  • Soft Body Whip in Candy Crush ($28)
  • Hair Fragrance in Beach Babe ($32)
  • Reactive Lush Lip in Candy Crush ($28)

To enter, leave a comment below, and your comment can be about anything at all. Tell me about your favorite scents from real life (fresh laundry dried with fabric softener, baby powder or the inside of a Starbucks at the crack of dawn perhaps?), if you plan to go shopping on Black Friday and what you plan to get, or what you’re preparing for your feast on Thanksgiving.

Seriously, any topic you want.

Terms & Conditions
Enter by leaving a comment below about anything at all.

Deadline to enter is Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at 11:59 PM (Pacific). Entrants must enter using a valid email address to win.

Tabs and I (heretofore referred to as “T-Money and K-Dawg”) will select one (1) winner at random from the entries left in the comments at the bottom of this post.

Void where prohibited by law.

Sending you my most fragrant wishes of good luck. :)

7 Ways to Win a $50 eGift Card From Sephora! (Ends Monday)

Good morning, buddy! So, Mockingjay last night. El Hub and I went, and while some of the reviews out there haven’t been kind, I liked it…which I know is probably a HUGE surprise.

But seriously, some of the reviews are calling it the worst of the three movies, boring, just a real stinker, but I didn’t think so at all.

It definitely has a different feel than the other two films, yeah, but so did the third book. The filmmakers split the last book in half to squeeze out another movie, but that’s sort of par for the course these days with successful franchises.

It’s darker than the first two films, literally. Not as many long sequences outdoors in thick forests and jungles, but that’s because this one is a wartime story, and it looks the part. I can’t say that I enjoyed the movie quite as much as the other two, but I did like it, and I think it holds its own in the greater Hunger Games film canon.

I mean, you know…if you’re a fan of the Hunger Games, it’s not like you’re not gonna see this movie. :)

In other news, it’s giveaway time!
