12 Days of Giveaways ~ Day 11: Fairy Dust Light Up Bottle

12 Days of Giveaways ~ Day 11: Fairy Dust Light Up Bottle

Aw, second to last day of giveaways-but it's lovely.  Today we're going to introduce you to Melanie Grace of Live Steamy, and her latest shop, Light-Up Bottles by Live Steamy!

Melanie Grace of Live Steamy

What is your favorite way to celebrate the holidays?
Unfortunately my favorite thing to do during the Holidays is spend tons and tons of money. When I had extra money I used to love to buy gifts. Gifts for my family and friends, gifts for Toys for Tots, gifts for the neighbors who I knew were struggling that year. I hate big box and was always looking for the next hole in the wall shop with some perfect little treasure.

 Do you prefer a white Christmas or are you more of a Christmas on the beach person?
Even though I absolutely hate the snow I was raised in snowy places and it's a little hard for me to really get into Christmas without it. So my favorite is visiting family and having 3 or 4 days of snow and them coming back to my beautiful subtropical home.
 If you could receive any gift this year, what would it be?

Do you have any fun Holiday traditions you practice?
We believe that Santa is the spirit of giving. And we sign all of the gifts we give as being from Santa instead of putting our own names on them. My goal is to get our kids to be just as excited about giving to others as they are about receiving.

If you could receive any gift this year, what would it be? 
A PS4. Who would have ever guessed that that girl who hated guys playing too many video games would grow to totally geek out on them herself. I guess the difference is that my Mr. and I play our games together, taking turns on single player and playing double when possible. It has become an awesome past time that brings us together.

 What's your favorite Holiday food?
Ooooo this is a tough one. But at the end of the day I have to admit I'm crazy for a good, warm apple pie.


She makes the most lovely light-up bottles, these would make fantastic holiday gifts!  Lookie:

12 Days of Giveaways ~ Day 10: $25 Starbucks Gift Card

12 Days of Giveaways ~ Day 10: $25 Starbucks Gift Card

Woohoo, with we're to day ten. Wait, it's almost over? Boo! With the holidays and cold weather aproaching a hot cup of coffee, cocoa, or tea is just the thing!  Well the fantastic Sean and Amanda from His and Her Hobbies blog are trying to make that happen for you!  If you check out their blog you can see about sewing/crafting, travel, books, and so much more!

Sean and Amanda from His and Her Hobbies

What is your favorite way to celebrate the holidays? 
Our favorite way to celebrate the holidays is to spend the day with family and friends trying to recreate as many traditions as possible.  Amanda's family always spends Christmas Eve and Christmas Day together.  Her mom makes the big meal, but Amanda is in charge of desserts.  Presents are opened Christmas morning, with one gift opened on Christmas Eve.  Skyping with Sean's family is a must also! 

 Do you prefer a white Christmas or are you more of a Christmas on the beach person? 
Amanda: I love the idea of a white Christmas, though it has not happened yet.  I am hoping that one day I will get to see the world blanketed with snow on Christmas morning.
Sean: I much prefer a hot Christmas as it is what I grew up with.  A cold, white Christmas doesn't seem right to me.  I am used to Christmas day being around 90 degrees so bring on the beach weather every December! 

 If you could receive any gift this year, what would it be? 
Amanda: A cruise with my family would be an amazing gift!
Sean: A business class plane ticket to visit my family and friends for the Christmas holiday would be great.

 Do you have any fun Holiday traditions you practice? 
When I (Amanda) was younger, my grandmother would always let us open one gift on Christmas Eve, because we just couldn't wait until Christmas morning.  I have such fond memories of repeatedly asking her if it was time for us to open the gift yet. She would laugh and I loved her smile.  I miss her a lot, especially at Christmas, so Sean and I continue the tradition of opening a gift on Christmas Eve.  It makes me feel like she is still in the room with me, laughing as I tear open the wrapping and check out the present inside.

 What's your favorite Holiday food?
Amanda: I make a Ho Ho Cake from Brown Eyed Baker's website that has become a family favorite for Christmas dessert.  It's so delicious!  Layers of chocolate cake and icing, designed to taste like a Hostess Ho Ho.  You can find the link to the recipe HERE.
Sean: My favorite would be corn pudding.  It's my favorite side dish and I am lucky that Amanda's mm makes it every year knowing how much I love it.

Okay, that cake.  Now.  Thanks for the recipe Amanda! Ready for the giveaway?
Amanda and Sean are offering one lucky reader a $25 Starbucks gift card!

12 Days of Giveaways ~ Day 9: Pacifica Skincare Set

12 Days of Giveaways ~ Day 9: Pacifica Skincare Set

Hello readers!  It's time for day 9-and it's a really fun beauty giveaway from a great beauty blogger-Jessica from Beyoutiful Beauty!  You can follow her blog for great beauty tips, tricks, and more!

Jessica from Beyoutiful Beauty

What is your favorite way to celebrate the holidays?
Spending time with my friends and family, eating yummy food, and watching Christmas movies.

Do you prefer a white Christmas or are you more of a Christmas on the beach person?
I'm from North Dakota, so we have snow for most of the winter season whether we want it or not! ;) Despite how sick I get of snow sometimes, I can't imagine a Christmas without it!

If you could receive any gift this year, what would it be?
As cheesy as it sounds, the only gift I want is to be able to spend some time relaxing with my boyfriend and family.  I don't really need anything else (although makeup is always good ;) haha!)

Do you have any fun holiday traditions you practice?
I have to watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation at least once every holiday season.  It's a necessity.  This tradition started when I was pretty young, and now I can't imagine not curling up on the couch to watch this movie and laugh incessantly every year.

What's your favorite holiday food?
Pumpkin pie, duh!  I'm also a huge fan of green bean casserole.  Like, for real.  If all I could eat during the holidays was pumpkin pie and green bean casserole, I'd be a happy lady.  And probably like really sick from eating so much of it all, but also pretty darn happy!

Yum.  We really want pumpkin pie over here now... But-let's get to that giveaway.
Jessica is giving one lucky winner this Pacifica Natural Skincare set including hand cream in Coconut Nectar; and body butter, lip tint, and a perfume roller ball in Hawaiian Ruby Guava.
