Giveaway Friday, Say Whaaaat?

The lucky winner of the first ever giveaway on My Life in Projects is....Amy!  Thank you for reading and have a Merry Christmas!

That's right, friends.  It's the first ever My Life in Projects giveaway!  In the spirit of Chrismas (and channeling my inner Ellen and all her 12 days of giveaways glory), I've decided to giveaway one of my FAVORITE things to one lucky reader! 

So many ideas crossed my mind as I thought of my favorites.  Scarves, notebooks, Philosphy face wash, Essie nail polish, anything with a bird on it...the list goes on.  But the one thing I kept coming back to and finally decided on is Anthropologie's Volcano Candle.  It's. To. Die. For.  I currently have two of these candles in my home and I can't get enough.

Capri Blue Candle Tin

There are lots of different colored jars to choose from in the store and online, but for this giveaway I chose the blue tin that you see pictured above.  Not pictured: the festive pine needles and match sticks wrapped around the tin with silver garland ribbon.  Oh Anthropologie, your details are too much to handle. 

Let's get to the fun part, shall we? 

HOW TO ENTER:  Leave a comment on this post naming one of your FAVORITE things.
*You must be 18 years old and have a U.S. shipping address to enter.

DEADLINE:  Enter by Monday, December 17th and one random winner will be announced on Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!

  1. My new favorite thing is Temptations bakeware. Beautiful hand painted pieces that go from oven to freezer to microwave to dishwasher. Cooks evenly and naturally non stick.

  2. Benetint Cheek Stain by Benefit Cosmetics. I love the fun old fashioned application. I also adore the sweet rose scent. The color is sheer yet provocative! (The Benetint lip balm is also not too shabby).

  3. Mine is Aveeno Leave-in Conditioner spray. Smells AH-mazing and has made my hair soft, shiny, and healthy.

    *love this candle! I've admired many times in the store but never bought!

    1. Thank you for reading, Amy! You are the winner of the giveaway! Just email me your shipping address at and I will get it in the mail as soon as possible. Have a wonderful holiday:)

    2. That would be Sorry about that:)

  4. Let's see, let's see... one of my current favorite things is coconut oil! I have been using it as "shaving cream" on my legs, and it has made a world of difference!

  5. This is a little random but I'm loving a ceramic elephant toothbrush holder that I'm giving my kids for Christmas. It's from Urban Outfitters and is sooooo cute! I may have screamed a little when I got it in the mail. Haha!

  6. Baby magic lavender baby wash. I love it for me and for my babies. I could kiss their faces off when they get out of the tub. By far my favorite thing. I use it sometimes too as a face wash. It's very gentle and smells beautiful! "If cleanliness is next to Godliness, then a baby fresh from a bath is heaven on earth."

  7. I love Kenra spray 25 super hold finishing spray!

  8. My list of favorite things includes: Trader Joe's almond snowmen cookies, Homeland on Demand, Laura Mercier lip gloss and OXO pop top containers.

  9. One of my favorite things right now is a ceramic elephant toothbrush holder that I got my kids for Christmas. It is from urban outfitters and is so cute!

  10. What a great idea! I've seen the favorite things party on Pinterest but thought it'd be fun to have a "virtual party" of fav things through the blogosphere. Each person would buy 5 of their fav. things ($5-$10 each) and then send 5 peeps their stuff in the mail so in the end you have 5 of other people's fav. things. My fav right now is Sally Hanson's total manicure nail polish
