The holidays are coming to a close and I had the opportunity to "give" in several different ways this year. There was a homeless guy that came into the station looking for a shelter and we gave him some money to help him on his way. The guys we work with with thought we were stupid cause he probably didn't need the money, but we thought in the spirit of christmas we would just have faith that he really needed it. Then we had a guy at work who recently went through a divorce and we knew things were gonna be tight this year so we took up a little collection to help him with gift buying. There were also the red buckets that I dropped all my change in everytime I came out of a store. It wasn't like I was a philanthropist giving away millions, but it makes you feel good all the same. Libby is sponsoring a giveaway at Jessica Knows to giveaway $150 to a lucky winner and an additional $150 to the charity of your choice. I would give the charity half to our local food bank to help replenish the coffers after the holidays!
I love the name of a new blog I found Because Katie Says So! Its perfect for this genre and she is celebrating her very first giveaway by offering a $25 Target giftcard! I would love to win this to buy some shoes. My friend Shelly buys the cutest heels and she is always getting them at Target! Last time I was there I got the cutest black patent leather heels! I love them and would love to get some more. I like the look of heels with jeans as long as it is the right type of heel! Check out her blog and giveaway and maybe you could be shopping at Target too! Because Katie Says So

Love pasta but don't know how to make sauce except for in a jar? I am the same way! I absolutely love Italian food, but have never been able to make tasty homemade sauce or really found a pre-packaged sauce that I loved. There is a chance for all of us to try Bertolli with their giveaway on the blog Unlikely Housewife in the Kitchen! Check out the site and the giveaway and hopefully one of us will be eating delicious pasta from Bertolli soon!

Anyone who knows me well knows I can't stand gold jewelry! I think it looks awful against my skin and only wear it on the very rare occasion that my outfit requires gold instead of silver. I ABSOLUTELY adore silver jewelry! I love it, love it, love it! Silver is probably my favorite color right behind black (the staple of my wardrobe, but not in a creepy goth way!) I was looking through some blogs today and found a really cute one called Sparklingtwi. She makes her own beautiful jewelry and has a store on Etsy. Right at this moment she is having a giveaway for a stunning pair of pink and silver earrings highlighted with Swarovski crystals. As much as I would love to be the only entrant, its not fair for everyone else to not be able to check out her lovely line of jewelry! Click Sparklingtwi to see the giveaway and also visit her shop and check out her other pretty offerings!
