Giveaway :: The One That Got Away, By Leigh Himes

Is there any better way to kick off Friday than with a giveaway!? As some of you all may recall, last year after the release of Leigh Himes’ debut novel, The One That Got Away, she was so kind to guest post on the blog, answer a few questions about herself and tell us about her new book. I’m so thrilled to be able to team up with Leigh Himes and Hachette books to run a week long giveaway for five lucky winners to win a copy of The One That Got Away, complete with a new soft back cover, which is stunning!
Leigh Himes’s debut novel, The One That Got Away, starts at Nordstrom {where all great shopping adventures begin} when Abbey Lahey, a struggling and overworked mother of two, takes an unexpected tumble down the escalator.

Once Abbey wakes from her fall she finds herself in a completely different reality and married to a man she almost dated years before. Married to congressional candidate, Alex van Holt, and living in a lavish penthouse, Abbey gets to experience what might have been, if only she had said yes to a date with Alex all those years ago.

Abbey gets the unusual opportunity to explore a life she could have had if she took a different road, find her true self, and decide which destiny she should or shouldn’t take.

The giveaway ends at midnight, November 24. Don’t miss out on the chance to be one the of 5 lucky people to win a copy of the beautifully written and entertaining book, The One That Got Away.

Hostess Gift Guide


Christmas lights are starting to go up, stores have their holiday display windows ready to go, and Santa has arrived at the mall – that only means one thing, the Christmas season is upon us! It is time to start thinking about Christmas shopping and gift guides! And just to give you all a piece of mind, I have not forgotten about Thanksgiving and have a few posts planned, but for now here is the first gift guide of the season!
With Christmas parties approaching in just a couple weeks it seemed only appropriate for the first gift guide of the season to be for the hostess with the mostess that we all know and love. My go-to hostess gift is usually a bottle of wine or a set of festive napkins, but it is fun to venture out of the usual realm of gifts. Plus, let’s face facts, at least half the people attending a holiday party will come with a bottle of wine in hand. So here are a few festive gifts for the hostess with mostess to mix things up a bit!

Here’s where to shop for my above top 9 Hostess Gifts for. Click on the name of the item to be directed to the website.
1.               L’Hiver Pie Dish
2.             HolidayBasic Cookie Cutter Set
3.             TheEssential Cocktail Book
4.             Plaid Wine Bags, Set of 3
5.             MerryChristmas 8 Piece Candy Bento Box
6.             Hammered Brass Cheese Knives
8.             Diptyque Gardenia
9.             Chess and Checkers Set

Holidays With Fashion Mia


Just recently I found out about Fashion Mia, a online women’s clothing store. Let me just start by saying that they not only have cute tops, but beautiful dresses for the holiday season, cozy sweaters, and even a few novelty Christmas sweaters and dresses for those novelty tacky Christmas parties that are just around the corner.

I love going into my closet and selecting one of my most loved dresses for a Christmas party or play, but sometimes I feel that some holiday occasions merit a new dress. With everything that goes on during the month of December I love knowing that there are websites out there who have a beautiful selection of dresses at a great price, and Fashion Mia is definitely one of those site. Confession, I am completely crushing on the above dress; windowpane prints and tasteful touches of leather get me every time.

Fashion Mia also carries some gorgeous fashion knitwear and with the temperatures dropping who doesn’t want to be stylish, cozy, and warm!? From velvet dresses to cozy cable knits and fringe embellished sweaters Fashion Mia has something for every occasion for this winter season!
