Personal Microderm Giveaway!

To celebrate Lauryn's 23 birthday (and the end of a week of giveaways) I have teamed up with 4 other bloggers to give away an all black PMD (Personal Microderm). This color is not even available online anymore, it sold out! Valued at $160, the PMD is a great tool to use that can show clearer, softer, and less scar-ridden skin in weeks! We are giving away one to ONE WINNER because we believe in the product and want YOU to have the chance to have the skin you want this Winter.

Enter the Rafflecopter below (simply click on the entry, complete said entry, and then hit the enter button). Rafflecopter won't send you junk mail AT ALL, you will only be contacted by Lauryncakes if you are the winner.

Giveaway is NOT open internationally, and winner must reply to email within 24 hours, or prize will be forfeited and given to another winner.

You're the...the...


Any other Grinch fans?? I finally took down my Halloween silhouettes and put up the Christmas ones. I seriously love doing this. Here are the ones I did last year. I love coming up with a new design. How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one of my favorite Christmas movies. We watch it every year. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I've already been watching all of the Hallmark Christmas movies. They are so great! They make you want to go put on the perfect holiday outfit, make Christmas cookies while the snow is falling, and kiss that special someone under mistletoe! 

Oh Christmas :)

I'm all about comfort. I love having an outfit that I can spend the day in, but also lay on the couch with! This is that outfit :) Speaking of laying on the couch... I missed all of my classes yesterday because I was sick. Bleh...the sick where your body just aches everywhere and you have no energy to even sit up. Don't worry, I had the TV on watching all of the Hallmark Christmas movies :) It's my favorite, even though they can be super cheesy, they just make me so happy.

Knee Highs // Friends

I hope everyone had a good weekend :) Loving the weather right now. It's been in the 60's and it has been so beautiful. I'm itching for Christmas though! I do love Thanksgiving, but I love the feeling that the Christmas season brings! 

This past weekend I got to hang out with my best girlfriends, which I always love doing! When I first moved out here I felt like it was so hard to make friends, like everyone already had their own friends, but then when I did meet people I sometimes felt like I couldn't be myself. It's so nice to have these girls who I can tell my secrets to, we can laugh about the craziest things together, and show up at their door unannounced just to pay a little visit. It really makes me so grateful for friends in general. They can really make or break a new place. I use to count the days until we left Utah, but now It's going to be really sad leaving! Really though, time goes by so fast! So come on Monday, be over ;)

Beanie // Facts About Me

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We did :) This week shouldn't be too bad. A little update about Dallin's applications. He has five scheduled interviews right now! So exciting for him! There is still a lot of uncertainty, but we are thrilled to see where we will be next year. This chilly weather has got me in the mood for some Fall comfort food. Last night I made a fantastic homemade chicken pot pie. It was delicious if I do say so myself :) And lots of soup!

I wanted to share some facts about me. A little get to know me. I did this post once which was a lot of fun so I thought I would share some more :)

>My ideal day is waking up during the week and not having work or school, going to Bath & Body Works and buying a new candle, coming home and lighting the candle, then clean the whole house alone with my music blasting, and then fix a good meal. Silly I know.

>One of my biggest pet peeves is mouth noises. I can't stand it when people chew with their mouths open. Like it can drive me literally insane!

>I'm not afraid to use my horn while driving, especially here in Utah! 

>I've probably watched You've Got Mail 50 times. Such a hopeless romantic over here.

>I would choose the beach over the mountains any day. Snow=no bueno

>Very, very allergic to cats, which is ok because I love dogs!

>I gag at the thought of eating cauliflower.

>I'm a huge Friends fan. I own all 10 seasons and I never get tired of re-watching episodes.

>My favorite songs right now are Chandelier by Sia and Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift

>I can come off as really shy, but I'm not :)

>I'm constantly singing in the car, mostly Broadway musicals.

>I'm a picky sleeper. I have to have two pillows, my Christmas blanket, and a fan going through the night for me to be able to fall asleep.

>Chinese take-out and a movie is always a great night.

>My laugh annoys me. It sometimes sounds like a cackle which gets embarrassing.

>I appreciate rainy days. 

Until next time!
