Today, December 8th, we are Giving Away...(CLOSED)


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.

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

For a second entry, please visit Lush Boutique's website here. 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 $30.00 on if you are our winner.
Example: Jane Doe: I would use my gift certificate towards The Koi -- Green and Blue Turquoise Coin Necklace--so pretty!

For a third entry, last week we asked you to tell us something nice someone has done for you at Christmas time. Today, in a NEW comment, tell us your first and last name and something nice you have done in the past or plan on doing this year for someone for Christmas.
Example: Jane Doe: Last year we did the Twelve Days to Christmas to someone. It was a lot of fun and our kids loved it! Only not-fun part? 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.)

For a fourth entry, become a Facebook Fan of Lush Boutique here. Once you have become a fan, return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and "Facebook Fan"
Example: Jane Doe: Facebook Fan

The winner of the gift certificate from Lush Boutique will be announced tomorrow, December 9th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to enter to win our giveaway from DownEast Basics. Thanks and have a great weekend!

Last year I finally moved back into the area where my old friends are and set up a yule dinner, and all they had to do was show up with present in hand and we had a pull later that night. It was all traditional yule, and a huge hit, we're doing it again this year.

Cyndie Call- we always did the 12 days of Christmas when I was a kid. The only part that wasn't fun was that by about day 3 the people would usually try to catch us, so since my siblings and I were so young my dad would deliver it as we watched from the car down the street. We wanted to deliver it, but we didn't want to get caught.
