A Complete Set of Lip Gloss from What's Your Virtue

These are the words you will find on What's Your Virtue's Website:

moral character
VIR*TUE
GOODNESS
BEAUTY ON THE INSIDE
[a good quality within us]
a valuable trait
inside and out

I have two daughters.
I love them.
I want the best for them.
I want them to be good and I want them to hear and see good things.
That is why when I read the story behind What's Your Virtue lip gloss, I was glad that there are other mothers who want the same for their daughters and are willing to do something about it. Here is What's Your Virtue's story:

"In the beginning, there was a mother with teen and preteen daughters. While on a shopping trip three years ago, she was made keenly aware of what beauty products were available to purchase. She was shocked at the explicit and suggestive names found on numerous brands of lip gloss. She didn’t feel it was appropriate for her 13 year old daughter to put such messaging in her pocket, let alone on her lips. The mother went home with no lip gloss, but with a strong desire to make a difference. After collaborating with her friends, an idea was born to create a lip gloss that would support a positive message, not only for her girls but for women everywhere."

Here at Give Away Today, we are proud to support What's Your Virtue. We hope you will be too. Their lip gloss would make a great gift for your daughter, granddaughter, your nieces, young ladies in your neighborhood, , etc. It will gently remind them each time they put on their lip gloss of traits such as kindness, generosity, wisdom, simplicity, devotion, and curiosity.

Until the end of December What's Your Virtue is extending a 15% DISCOUNT to all Give Away Today readers. Please use the coupon code "giveaway" upon check-out. Also, if you buy three or more, you will receive FREE SHIPPING.

Today What's Your Virtue would like to give away one complete set of lip glosses--that will include six colors. This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere. So if you are somebody, somewhere, you can enter to win up to FOUR times today.

Until December 14th we are Giving Away Products from FOUR Companies...(CLOSED)


A $30.00 Gift Certificate from Freshpair.com

So here's the big question...are you still on the look-out for some great Christmas gifts for your man?

Another question...do you need some new pajamas?

And another...do you ever eat a little too much over the holidays and think some Spanx might be nice to wear come January 1st?

If your answer to any of these is "Yes!", allow me to introduce you to Freshpair.com.


Freshpair.com, the leading on-line retailer of men's underwear and women's intimate apparel, carries all of the leading intimate apparel brands, including Calvin Klein Underwear, Spanx, Wacoal, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Elle Macpherson Intimates.

Customers enjoy the easy and secure on-line shopping experience at Freshpair.com. The knowledgeable Freshpair Customer Care team is ready to answer any questions about products or on-line shopping, and shoppers can also read product reviews from actual customers. Freshpair.com offers free domestic shipping everyday (and excellent international shipping rates).

I just ordered my husband the Diesel Hard-Boxe Hoodie (seen in the first image) from Freshpair. It is one of the only surprise gifts I am giving him this year and I can't wait to give it to him. So if by chance you know him, please don't spill the beans.

If you currently live in the U.S.A., you may enter to win the gift certificate from Freshpair.com up to THREE times.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry, please visit Freshpair.com here. Look at their fabulous products and then return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and what you would use your gift certificate on if you are our winner.
Example: Jane Doe: My neighbor Katrina, who I used to go running with (until I got lazy), has a jacket similar to this one. It looked so warm (and not to mention fashionable) when we would go running in the cold weather. So if I were to win, I would pick the Patagonia Capilene 3 Zip-Neck Long Sleeve (it's only $25.00)

For a third entry, yesterday I was in my laundry room and bumped into the broom and it fell off it's hook and, like a dagger, went straight into my toe (it is a metal broom that is missing it's protective knob on the end). After crying, yes I cried, I called my neighbor and she rushed me to the doctor's (alright, we didn't rush, but we were moving at a fast-pace) where I received stitches. Two stitches people!! And a Tetanus shot. And I have to say, the Tetanus shot has been the most painful thing about the whole ordeal thus far. So in a NEW entry, I would like for you to tell me your first and last name and if you (or someone in your family) has ever received stitches.
Example: Jane Doe: Besides yesterday, I also received stitches twice when I was younger and then once in college I took a ski class at Grand Targhee and some friends and I decided to hike to a peak called Mary's Nipple (which at the time was restricted). On the way down the mountain my ski caught an edge and I tumbled head over heels causing me to get 16 stitches and a rather fierce tongue lashing about going into "Restricted Areas".

The winner of the gift certificate from Freshpair.com will be announced Monday, December 14th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaway for the day. Thanks!

A $30.00 Gift Certificate to Lush Boutique

For my mom's 60th birthday my sisters and I surprised her by taking her to Salt Lake City for dinner, shopping, and to spend the night at a hotel.

A couple of days before our big "Girl's Night Out" I received the most stunning turquoise necklace, bracelet, and earrings from Lush Boutique. I was very excited to wear them with my sisters and mom while we shopped in Salt Lake.

When I walked out adorning my new jewelry from Lush Boutique, my sister said, "Oh my gosh, you look model-ish!"
Who?
Me?
The girl who was once told she looked like a young Jodie Foster in Freaky Friday?
Model-ish?

I don't recall ever being told I looked model-ish. And that's when I decided, when someone tells you you look model-ish, you take it and run, baby. And then you tell others about the brilliant jewelry you were wearing at the exact moment someone told you you looked like a model. Ish.

And so here it is.

The Very Lovely Jewelry from Lush Boutique.

I have decided that it is important to own a few really nice pieces of jewelry.

Some that are classic.

Some that go with everything.

And some that you can pass onto your daughters or nieces.


Lush Boutique offers exactly this type of jewelry (and no, that is not me in the above image). They specialize in fresh and chic handmade jewelry at an affordable price. Their favorite materials to use are turquoise, sterling silver, semi-precious gems, pearls, and basically anything else that is gorgeous. Lush Boutique offers affordable jewelry that is timeless and fashionably chic.

The owner of Lush Boutique says, "I love designing jewelry that makes beautiful women feel even more beautiful."
Or perhaps even, let's say, model-ish?

FREE SHIPPING!! That's right, Lush Boutique is offering the readers of Give Away Today Free Shipping! The discount will be good through December 15th, and readers can receive it by using the code "GiveAwayToday" in the notes during checkout.

Today Lush Boutique is giving away a $30 gift certificate. Regardless of where in the world you live, you may enter to win up to FOUR times today.

We were out of town one night and asked someone to deliver the present for us. When she was backing out of the driveway she got in a car accident. It cost $500 (and the person we did it for was staring at her out his window as the cops filed the police report, etc. Needless to say, he became a bit suspicious.)

Today, December 7th, we are Giving Away Gift Certificates and Utah Jazz Tickets...(CLOSED)


Scribble It is Giving Away THREE (Possibly FOUR)
$25.00 Gift Certificates to Their Online Store



I gave my sister Mr. Owl from Scribble It for her birthday.
As soon as I saw him in her laundry room (that's her laundry room in the above picture), I knew I must get a Mr. Owl for my laundry room too.
Because, c'mon, who couldn't use a friend while doing the laundry?
I know I could use a feathered gentleman watching over me as I did my least favorite household chore.
In fact, the only thing better than having a friend watching over you while doing your laundry would be if that friend were to do the laundry for you.
But Mr. Owl's job is not to do your laundry.
It is only to make you happy.
While doing your laundry.
Make sense?

And here are some more items from Scribble It to make you happy this holiday season.
To adorn your home or someone's you know:

Cute

Saw one of these in my neighbor's house--love it!

Beautiful

Unique...and non-breakable

FREEBIE FOR EVERYONE: If you order something from Scribble It and mention Give Away Today, you will receive a a free 8" JOY decal (I got one when I received my Mr. Owl--I'm going to place it on an ornament)


Anyone, anywhere can enter to win one of the $25 gift certificates from Scribble It up to FOUR items today.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry, please visit Scribble It's online store here. You will like what you see--a lot of great ideas for Christmas. Once you have looked around, return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and what you would spend your $25.00 on if you are our winner.
Example: Jane Doe: I would want vinyl lettering that says "Return with Honor". I would place it above the door in my laundry room. The kids grab their backpacks from the laundry room each morning before leaving for school.

For a third entry, Scribble It is going to offer a FOURTH $25.00 Gift Certificate if there over 1500 comments today. Do you think we can do it? Do you think we can get over 1500 comments today?
