Ladies and gentleman, it is officially December 1. You know what that means.
It’s birthday month, my friends.
But really. Aside from December obviously being the best month of the year because I was born in it, I am stoked for 31 days full of Christmas lights, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, eggnog, and ugly sweater parties. I’m so excited to be Santa Claus this year that I can’t even stand it. In fact, I’m already drooling over the thought of traditional Christmas breakfast with my family because homemade cinnamon rolls basically rock my socks off. Throw in a little teensy bit of snow and a warm fire, and I could pretty much qualify as the official Holiday Cheermeister.
And you know what happens when I get in the Christmas spirit, right?
I get extra generous and decide to round up a few of my very favorite things to give away to my awesome Cotten Tales readers. Because I just love you all.
Just call me Oprah.
Four of you (that’s right, FOUR) are going to receive an amazing stocking stuffer that was truly hand-picked by me. These are just a few of my favorite things, and I hope you enjoy them just as much as I have! So, without further adieu…
1 | “Not Too Tights” by Wade & Belle
Nobody likes uncomfortable tights. And nobody likes a muffin top. Cue Wade & Belle.
I love this line of hosiery simply because it’s easy to wear, it looks great on everyone, and they have adorable patterns that make me feel fashion-forward even when I’m totally not. Which is normally.
Stockings for your stockings? I think so. One of you will win two pairs of these amazing tights!
2 | “The Cozy Pack” by Candelles
I have a candle problem. It gets worse when Candelles releases a new line.
I discovered Candelles through my blog-crush Living in Yellow, and I’ve been an addict ever since. Candelles is a small business located in Pennsylvania, and all of their soy candles are hand-poured and eco-friendly. They arrive in just the most perfect pretty little package, which always makes me feel like it’s my birthday. And they smell fantastic. Bonus.
One of you will win a Cozy Pack, which features THREE incredible winter scents in adorable little mini-mason jars. In fact, I’m jealous I can’t keep them for myself.
3 | $20 Stitch Fix Gift Card
If your husband/fiance/boyfriend asks, I was not the person to introduce you to this. I’ll deny everything.
4 | $125 Ardent Owl Photography Gift Card
Uh, yeah. My love for Cammi at Ardent Owl Photography has never been a secret. She’s only one of my most favorite people, ever.
She’s been there with us for so many of our life events – from shooting our maternity, newborn, 6 month and 1 year photos, to actually coming to our hospital room to take our first family photos when Dorothy was a mere few hours old. She’s by far the best photographer I’ve ever worked with, and I recommend her to everyone I know. Last Christmas, our wall of Christmas cards looked like an Ardent Owl Photography gallery. She’s that fantastic.
Lucky for you, Cammi is giving one of you a HUGE Christmas present. Like, $125 huge. Isn’t she amazing?
I think four of you are going to be very happy this Christmas. AmIRight?!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to each and every one of you! I’m so thankful to have you all as a part of this crazy blog. 🙂
