Christmas Stocking Giveaway


Tis the holiday season and this year I wanted to do something fun for you and me.   Over the year I get all kinds of goodies to review.  Boxes and boxes of fun stuff from subscription sites.  Most of the stuff I just don’t use, and don’t need.  SO.. I have kept it all and decided I will pass it all onto my followers.. cuz you all rock!!  You all make what I do fun, and give me a chance to work from home and help my family.

Everyone loves a stocking filled with fun goodies.  Things like soap, lotion, candles, tarts, jewelry, cards, hand made goods, and more.  Might be fun and fitness, something snackable, a smelly product, or a one of a kind item only you will have.  Regardless of what it is, it will be a surprise from me to you.

I am giving away 6 Christmas stockings stuffed with goodies. Each one valued at $25 or more.  But, they are not actually in stockings.. because I couldn’t find any that I liked.  So, I got cute Christmas gift bags, filled them with goodies and festive tissue paper and will hand write a tag just for each winner.  Wanna try your luck at winning a fun bag of goodies?   Enter using the giveaway tools entry form below.  You will see that I have a bunch of mandatory entries and also some optional ones.  I thought it would be fun to include some of my friends and so you will be clicking thru to many amazing places like others Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram or blogs.   Take some time and follow/like these gals and check out what they do.  We all appreciate it.  They are helping me make this giveaway happen, and would love a little love too.

Begins December 5th @ 8 am CST.  Ends December 16th @ 11:59 CST.   Open to US only.    6 Winners selected on December 16th.  I will email all winners.  Winners have until December 18th to reply with shipping info.  If no reply, a new winner is selected.

Nominate a Mom for Mom Me-time Sweepstakes

This post brought to you by Best Western. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Living Smart Girl.

Life is busy and for many that means little family time or time to devote to enjoying the little things in life.  For Moms who are career driven and travel for work it can take a toll on them.  Even though travel is fun to some extent when it’s for work, it isn’t fun enough to be considered Mom Me-time.

Do you know a busy mom, a mom who travels for work?  One who deserves a vacation for herself, to relax and not “work” while gone?  Are you also a busy person who would like a vacation for yourself? Well have I got the sweepstakes for you.   Come over and nominate a mom you know for the Mom Me-Time Sweepstakes and if they win, you win too! One lucky mom will win five nights in any Best Western hotel and a $2,500 MasterCard® Gift Card!

And, In addition to helping a mom win a well-deserved vacation, the person who mominates her wins the same grand prize!  Now, I am sure you know just the MOM who would deserve this, right ?



Oh how I would love to be nominated for such a fun trip. (hint hint). But, I don’t travel for work like so many moms do.  I am lucky that way, as I get to work from home. But I do know many moms who travel, and sometimes I feel bad for them. When I travel, it’s generally for fun.  The few times I have traveled for work, have not been horrible but yet not relaxing either.

Check out this video about where kids talk about what their moms do.
