Keep Calm and Love Free Stuff

Last month I was so consumed with Thanksgiving Brunch, I completely forgot to do our Sharla’s Skincare Giveaway and our Cotton Hearts Texas T Giveaway. So, to make it up to you I think its only fair to double this month’s Giveaways! Wahoo!

Over the next FOUR days (yes, you’ll have to check back in on Saturday and Sunday) I will announce FOUR winners. One lucky duck will win a Texas T from Cotton Hearts, another will win a $50 GC to Cotton Hearts, and two lucky duckies will win $99 worth of Sharla’s Skincare! Are you so excited?

If you aren’t familiar with Sharla’s Skincare, you really, really, really should be. In 2004, Sharla opened a cosmetic and bath boutique committed to offering the highest quality skincare and bath products. Her skincare is medical grade, and free of toxins, carcinogens and fillers. If you are local, swing by her shop on the Square in McKinney whereshe or her knowledgeable staff will teach you everything you could ever need to know about skincare in general. I have personally used these products for seven years now. I can attest to their effectiveness in anti-aging as well as to balancing the skin. Two winners will receive Hyaluronic, Skin Lipids, and Ultra Hydrating Cream.


If you aren’t familiar with Cotton Hearts, you really, really, really should be. Dorie opened her cotton shop almost twenty years ago. The store is known for it’s relaxed, bohemian style, and has become a staple on the square for both locals and out-of-towners. Her Texas Ts are one of my personal favorites and are sure to make you (or a loved one) a happy girl this Christmas. Or use your GC to shop her selection of Sofia, Splendid and Johnny Was to name a few.
