A Whimsical Giveaway!

The sweet folks over at Catching Fireflies recently approached me about featuring my Salted Caramel Mocha in a holiday-themed post called 6 Mocha Recipes to Warm Your Heart & Soul…..  How delightful!  I checked out the post and the recipes sure do look tempting.  I’m a mocha-lover through and through, and my 2-year-old can vouch for that!


Holiday Mocha Recipes!


And in addition to featuring my mocha, they kindly offered to give a $43 Catching Fireflies gift card away to one lucky Pretty/Hungry reader!  I wanted to be sure and host the giveaway stat, in case the winner wants to use their gift card to buy Christmas gifts.  (The giveaway will end Thursday, and if you order by Friday, you should have your items by Christmas!)

Catching Fireflies carries a collection of whimsical goods for your home, kitchen, family, friends… and pretty much every person/place in between.  Their merchandise options range from decidedly weird (ie: this bacon shaped Christmas ornament)… to luxurious and hand-made (ie. this Blood Orange + Citrus soy candle.)  So I daresay you’ll be able to find the perfect gift, no matter who you’re buying for.

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is pop over to the Catching Fireflies website and find an item or two that you’d love to buy if you won the gift card. Then pop back over to this post and leave a comment telling me what that item is!  One comment per person, please.  And be sure to enter your correct e-mail in the comment form, because the winner will be sent his/her prize via e-mail.  Also note that while your comment might not appear to have gone through immediately, I am getting them!  (If you’re doubtful, you can always leave a comment on my Facebook page instead.)  I’ll select a winner at random on Thursday (Dec. 11th) at 10pm CST.

Here are my top picks, in case you need any ideas…

>> Paddywax Blood Orange + Citrus candle

>> Orange Blossom Honey Natural Moisturizing Lotion  

>> 101 Family Vacation Games  (Because I’m a strong proponent of putting down your smart phone and engaging with your loved ones when you’re on vacation together!)

>> These metallic gold temporary tattoos.  And these.  And these.  My college roommates and I used to have a tradition called “Temporary Tatt Tuesday,” which meant that every Tuesday, we went to our classes wearing semi-ridiculous temporary tattoos in obvious places, and had a blast doing it.  These tattoos are decidedly more chic… and they bring back good memories. :)  I like em!


Metallic gold temporary tattoos


Counting down to Christmas!  Hope you’ve got most of your shopping done. :)

    Wow, Carissa! What a wonderful opportunity and a fun possibility! I went to the site and saw so many cute things – I really liked the insta-clip picture frames ( always have some cute pics of the grandkids, you know!) and I also loved the pewter bracelet that says, “Live the life you love, love the life you live” on it – what a great mantra!

    I loved the Michigan items. http://www.catchingfireflies.com/categories/michigan-goods/ I was born in the state of MI and have very fond memories. Anything that brings those memories back is marvelous. I even shared it with my sister-in-law who lives in MI. I love watching and reading about your discoveries. Thanks for sharing.
