Giveaway Day 18 #averydetailschristmas

Today is the birthday of one of my favorite people, my nephew! Today’s giveaway is what he loves the most, PENGUINS! In 2006 there was a super cute little children’s movie called Happy Feet released. Two years later my nephew was born. One visit home to Ohio my nephew was watching the movie and just moving around like the dancing penguin. We knew then that penguins were here to stay and we started to get him everything penguin. We have lost count on how many DVD’s of Happy Feet we’ve purchased. He still dances like Happy Feet, has a room full of penguins, and anything our family sees with a penguin on it, he gets. The kid LOVES penguins, so much that one summer day he put one in the freezer because penguins live in the cold and it was too hot outside for him *stuffed animal (says the then four year old). My mother did not like the shock of finding a stuffed animal in her freezer. I would do everything possible to get my nephew a real penguin, if it were possible.

Of course, today’s giveaway is penguin themed. I really hope that you can make new memories with your loved ones! Happy Feet in a cute penguin bag filled with popcorn!

Giveaway Day 17 #averydetailschristmas

I know you all have been missing the daily giveaways the last three days! Well, we are combing some of my favorite things to give you something wonderful!

Every day has been about one of my favorite things, today is no different. We are just putting THREE of my favorite “things” together. I love, love, love, love, love (get it) LOVE my photographer. I call her MY photographer because when it comes to my professional photos, she is the go to. I know that Lauren will capture the pure essence of whatever special occasion is happening. I found Lauren on the internet back in 2011 and called for a session. She is the sweetest person I had ever met! Finding out that she was from Ohio and fairly new to Alabama like myself was the icing on the cake! We finally got our shoot in November of 2012, a couple sessions. We got engaged in February of 2013 and she of course did our engagement and wedding. She has also done the wonderful head shots you find on the website. I know that we will have many, many more sessions with Lauren as we continue on in life.

When you meet a professional in the wedding industry that is super talented, loving, kind, and has an amazing soul, you want to want them to do every wedding and/or event with you! I met Jacqueline during the planning of my wedding. She did the hair for some of my bridesmaids. She arrived at my house for the trial very prompt and was fast, efficient, and of course a pleasure! When she left, I said to the bridesmaid Jessica, I love her! She was on Team Summit for the Style the Aisle event that we participated in this past October. She is a wonderful hair stylist who I have had the pleasure of doing my hair as well! Again, LOVE!

I sense you may know where I may going next, make-up. Stacey over the past year has become one of my dear friends who I LOVE to pieces. We probably talk through some form of communication at bare minimum 4-5 times a week. I started following Stacey on Facebook after seeing her work on another photographer’s site. The first time I met her in person was because she won my very first giveaway from Details. We met and talked for a good 30 minutes. Again, I walked away like okay I really like her. We also got to work together on the Style the Aisle event this October. She is an impeccable make-up artist.

All three of these women are head-over-heels in love with their craft. They are some of the sweetest women I am fortunate enough to call my “co-workers” in this crazy thing we call the wedding industry.

Okay, I know you are tired of me talking and want to know what today’s giveaway is. Well today my friends, you probably have guessed it right! Enter to win a FREE engagement session from photography from Lauren Tomasella Photography, hair by Jacqueline Guise-Bridal Hair,  make-up by The Beauty Enhancement by Stacey Spearman, and designed/styled by Details Events and Designs!

Giveaway Day 13 #averydetailschristmas

We are so close to Christmas and most people have their trees, lights, decorations, etc. up. Christmas is my favorite holiday because it brings most people into a great mood.  Putting the trees (yes more than one) in our home means a little bit of the outside world slows down. No cell phones, no internet, no T.V. just Christmas music, fun, and family. We always start to look back at all the year has brought us. Our yearly tradition is to get a new ornament with something that has occurred that year. We haven’t made it to get our ornament just yet, but it will most likely be one to signify the beginning of Details Events and Designs. I won’t start into that blog, but there will be one. The one thing that we do every year faithfully is watch our favorite Christmas movies after the tree is up. Home Alone yes one and two! The movie has to be one of the funniest Christmas movies ever. Such a touching moment when Kevin is reunited with his family and can really appreciate the meaning of family. Ahh, I can’t wait to watch it one day this week! So today I want to share with you the opportunity to win Home Alone and make a new Christmas memory.

Giveaway Day Nine #averydetailschristmas

Everyone is getting a good glimpse of my favorite things. Today is one of my favorite local home boutique stores, Sweet Pineapple. I love Instagram, I am there more than Facebook or any other social media site. Remember on day two of the giveaway I mentioned the day of the Simplified Planner release and going to Sweet Pineapple? That was my very first visit of many! Gina always gets me with her Instagram post when the new shipments arrive.

Let my tell you all about this adorably cute store. The owner Gina Garrett is a sweet soul. The very first time I walked into the store she was warm and welcoming. My almost weekly visits not only consist of a purchase, but a good girl business owner to business owner conversation.

The store is located at 601 Pratt Ave in Five Points. It’s a cute bungalow style house that can’t be missed. You will walk in to the aroma of one of the wonderful candles you can find. Gina prides herself on carrying items that you can’t just get in your chain retail stores. I LOVE that detail. She carries amazing bath products, luxurious fabrics, dishes, candles, pillows, kitchen towels, baby gifts, art prints, and so much more. Gina will also do complimentary gift wrapping on your purchases!  You don’t want to miss out on this treasure! Go see her during her special holiday hours 10am – 5pm Monday through Saturday.

So of course, I have teamed up with Gina to present you today’s giveaway. One of my favorite new bath lines, it’s called Farm House Fresh or FHF for short. This is a special edition gift set that includes Whoppie! shea butter bath soak, sweet cream body scrub, and shea butter cream! Once you try it, you will LOVE It! Go ahead and enter below!

Giveaway Day Five #averydetailschristmas

Happy Monday! I am excited for today’s giveaway because I think it will help you with your Christmas parties in style this year! My love for organization goes way beyond planning. When things are cute it makes fun to want to organize in style. I love a company so much I signed up to sell it’s products several years ago. Thirty-One is one of my favorite direct sales company. I use so many of their products in my day to day life. The “uh-oh kit” I use for my brides is one of the utility bags from Thirty-One. What woman doesn’t love a stylish print with the bonus option of getting it monogrammed?

Well today’s giveaway is a insulated bottle carrier (fits a bottle of wine perfectly) and a snowman mini carry all caddy. I use the mini caddy for handing out treats, putting in a box of tissues, etc. I love snowmen! One of the themes of my holiday decor. Get ready to go to your next party in style!

Giveaway Day Four #averydetailschrismas

I love quotes…I mean really love quotes. For those busy days I can’t sit down and read a book or have that 15 minutes of a mental break. Yes, that my friends is where quotes come in. I have them saved in my phone from Instagram, Facebook, web searches, or even random ones I may see as I am out and about. Quotes are those two seconds where you can get that next little burst to make it through whatever it is.

This brings me to today’s giveaway. A little canvas I found while shopping for the giveaway,  “All you need is LOVE.” That isn’t just a romantic love either love from friends, family, and everything in between. To give or to receive, love is a thing that truly makes the world go round. So today I ask that you love a little harder to all those around you. You never know who someone was meant to be in your life or you in theirs.

Giveaway Day Three #averydetailschristmas

Today is probably one of my all time favorites when it comes to my list of favorite things. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Target!! They have pretty much everything a woman could love, especially a Super Target. My love for Target was so strong at one point, I had to visit every single day. Yes, it was that bad. As I look around my house to try and identify all the trips and memories I have made going there. It’s almost like a Starbucks for me. I can find a Target anywhere I am, it’s a comfort. If there is no Target within a few miles, I get a little nervous lol.

Of course Target and Christmas go hand in hand. Today’s, giveaway is a $10 gift card and a pair of burlap NOEL stockings. Have a great day!

Giveaway Day Two of #AVeryDetailsChristmas

Day one was great! Here we are at day two.

I have a little obsession with Emily Ley. Who is Emily Ley you ask because you have been hiding under a rock? She is a designer I love because not only does she make beautiful things, she makes them with a purpose to help you simplify life. I started following her work a little over year ago and immediately wanted one of her coveted SIMPLIFIED PLANNERS. As an event planner, you have to be organized. I struggled to find a planner that could let me write everything down in a world where technology rules. There it stood in all it’s glory…the simplified planner, SOLD OUT.

I marked my calendar for September 3, 2014 to be one of the first to order my planner for 2015. The day of my purchase, I saw a local store carried them, Sweet Pineapple Home. I went in because there are several other items I wanted to get from Emily Ley but wanted to see first hand. To the store I went and left with a print that is today’s giveaway. “DO WHAT MATTERS FORGET THE REST.”  It wasn’t the first time I had seen the print, but that day a light bulb went off.

We live in such a fast paced environment and everything is wanted “right now!” This print among a few others I have in my office from Emily Ley remind me to really just slow down. When I find myself in a torn place overwhelmed, I remember to “Do what matters forget the rest.”

Giveaway Day One of #AVeryDetailsChristmas

I have been ready to start the daily giveaways for a few days now. Making my list of all the goodies, shopping, then thinking about and writing the blogs to announce each prize has been fun. The first item is something that I LOVE…coffee. Coffee and I go way back to my pre-teen years. My dad and grandmother first introduced me to coffee. It was an instant love at first drink. So today I share with you a chance to win a $10 gift card and a iconic gold cup ornament to one of my favorite chain coffee shops, Starbucks™. It holds precious  memories. Whether its on the hunt for a Starbucks™ with my nieces when we are out of town, being on my honeymoon and finding a Starbucks™ in Mexico, meeting brides for consults, or a simple, quick coffee fix there are many memories that have been made with that famous cup.

Okay so I can’t hold it any longer. A couple of weeks ago I had the idea of doing “Andrea’s Favorite Things” a much smaller version of what the famous Oprah has done in past years. Why you ask, well Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. As I am typing the song It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year is playing in the background. What better way to start prepping for the holidays by giving away some of my favorite things? Every day I will be posting a blog on what my favorite thing is in the morning and drawing a winner every night! You really don’t want to miss what I have in store for you! #averyDETAILSchristmas is coming soon!
