Helping Hands Bakery Gifting Event



I just LOVE a company with a great cause and Helping Hands Bakery captured my heart. Founded by Bridget Lane, a mom of three sons diagnosed with autism, Bridget wanted to make a difference in her community and ensure her boys and others with special needs would always have a job. She turned her love of baking cookies into Helping Hands Bakery where employees with special needs are taught not only how to bake cookies, but also learn self-reliance skills.


Oooh and the cookies, let me tell you about the cookies! They are gluten-free which usually when I hear that means not so great. I have a weakness for cookies and have been on a gluten-free diet, but I've had a hard time finding gluten-free anything that is worth writing about. Well, make yourself a cup of tea and pull up a chair because Helping Hands Bakery's cookies are definitely worth reading about. They are SCRUMPTIOUS, unbelievably moist, not too sweet, and soooo tasty. Be prepared, they will quickly disappear out of the cookie jar even if your family doesn't live a gluten-free lifestyle.


We first tried the Monster Bites ~ made with chocolate chips, raisins and the slightest hint of coconut. I was immediately struck by how moist they were, they tasted as though they were just out of the oven. I thought the other flavors couldn't possibly be any better than these. Wrong!


The next day I tasted Cranberry Flax. I didn't think I would like these from the name. Wrong again! One bite and I was convinced these would be my favorite. They, too, were soooo moist and fluffy. I loved the bits of sweet cranberries.


Next up were Helping Hands Bakery's newest addition, Chocolate Chip Bites. These could rival Toll House cookies any day. They were soft and chewy with big chunks of chocolate and that fresh, right out-of-the-oven taste. Mmmm

My Mom was still talking about how good the Snickerdoodles were that she had the night before. She's even harder to please than I am, and since the only thing she said after trying them was "They don't taste like Snickers"☺, I figured she didn't like them. Yep wrong again, turns out she LOVES them. Of course, after hearing her rave about them, I had to have one. They are light as air, melt-in-your mouth scrumptious and my favorite...so far! Helping Hands Bakery makes more goodies than just these four cookies though so I may have another favorite before too long.


Helping Hands Bakery delivers across the U.S. The cookies arrive packaged in resealable plastic boxes and retail for $19.95 for a pack of 4 boxes including shipping! To order visit them online at HelpingHandsBakery.com.


Hurry on over to Helping Hands Bakery's facebook page, like them, and enter to win some of their delicious cookies in their weekly contest. Be sure to connect with them on Twitter too.


Trick or Treat! To celebrate Halloween we have a sweet treat to share. Helping Hands Bakery is gifting one Chic Luxuries' reader a gluten-free goodie box of their delicious treats! ARV: $50

hip-T Gifting Event

I just discovered another FANTASTIC product which I think is BRILLIANT! hip-T provides the look of layering t-shirts without having to wear more than one shirt. hip-T also ensures there are no "peek-a-boo" moments when sitting or bending over in your jeans. 


Co-creator, Christine Meeks, who has been featured on The Big Idea and several news stations, sent me a hip-T in black to try. This product is genius! I can't believe I haven't heard of it before. I was so excited to tell Christine which color I wanted, that I completely missed that the hip-T is also available with lace trim {LOVE}. The hip-T retails for $19.95.


I also received the Hoola scarf in gray and white. Like a hoola hoop this scarp goes around and around can be worn looped once, twice or three times.



The Hoola is lightweight, 92% cotton, 8% spandex and machine washable. It is so soft and comfy. Available in nine color options, the Hoola is on sale for $10.95.

To order, visit myhip-T.com and be sure to connect with the hipTgirls on Twitter.

To Enter, visit myhip-T.com and let us know which hip-T would you choose if you win.

Review of The Pink Monogram

I discovered The Pink Monogram while searching for cute gift ideas online, and boy did I find some...over 2,000 in fact! In addition to their online store, The Pink Monogram has two retail stores in Greenville, South Carolina. Owner, Monica Smith, who is also a Mom of four and inventor of The Pink Monogram Clog, displays true Southern hospitality and could not have been more gracious. 


Monica invited me to choose which item I wanted to review and I selected this adorably chic Pink Daisy Papers Notepad....


It arrived wrapped in clear cello paper tied with coordinated raffia ribbon. Pink Daisy Paper pads measure 5.5" by 8.5", include 60 sheets of papers, and are perforated under the ribbon so the bow stays intact. They are available in fun sayings and can be personalized in your choice of ribbon, color, and imprint...too cute!
These notepads make the perfect girly chic gift for birthdays, holidays, college dorm rooms, hostesses, housewarmings, thank yous, get well presents, and that hard-to-buy friend or family member.  The price is $22.

The company also wholesales their Pink Monogram Clogs. Resellers interested in carrying these clogs in their store are invited to email Monica personally.


Visit The Pink Monogram online at ThePinkMonogram.com, follow on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news and specials, or if in the Greenville, South Carolina area, stop in to say hello "The coffee pot is always on" ~ love that!


Thank you, Monica, for being such a caring and inspiring entrepreneur. ♥

HappyFeet Review and Giveaway

HappyFeet is the perfect name for massaging insoles that relieve pain and I found these insoles do just that! HappyFeet insoles also relieve Plantar Fasciitis, improve circulation and help eliminate ankle, knee, hip and back pain.



I have a lot of trouble finding closed shoes that don't hurt so the HappyFeet people sent me a pair of their massaging insoles to try. I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first and since I've never found insoles that work for me, didn't have very high hopes for these. I also wondered how much I would actually have to say about a pair of insoles? Boy, was I wrong on all counts!


As soon as I put them on, I noticed they had spring-like cushions in exactly the places where my feet hurt most. The insoles fit perfectly into my Keds and required no cutting. I felt like I was ten again in them...my step had such a bounce to it. I tend to be hard on my feet when I walk and can best describe the massaging gel cushions as shock absorbers. I am already recommending them to all my friends who complain of foot pain.

These glycerin gel-filled insoles are lightweight, washable and can be trimmed at the toe if they don't fit your shoes {mine fit perfectly}. Made in the USA, HappyFeet Insoles come with a 30-day money back guarantee and a one-year unconditional warranty. Available online at HappyFeet.net for $44.95, they are well worth the investment if you suffer from foot, knee, back or leg pain after walking. Connect with HappyFeet on TwitterFacebook and WordPress for news and specials.



Now to make one Chic Luxuries' reader even happier, the generous folks at HappyFeet are giving away a pair of their fab insoles! Oh happy day!

Polar Pillow Gifting Event

The folks at Polar Pillow sent me one of their cooling pillows to try. The pillow begins cooling within 10 seconds of contact and remains cool for two hours. Super cool technology! One side of the pillow is filled with cooling gel (about 12 lbs. worth) and the other micro-air beads. For anyone who sleeps through the night but has difficulty falling asleep, this may be for you. I really liked the coolness of the pillow and I did seem to fall asleep quicker than usual. 

The Polar Pillow takes about 20 minutes to re-energize in an air-conditioned room, however, it requires no electricity, water, refrigeration, setup or maintenance. Simply leave it blue side facing up to re-energize after use. The Polar Pillow fits in a standard-size pillowcase and can be spot cleaned (machine washing not recommended). The Polar Pillow can be ordered online at Polar-Pillow.com and retails for $99 with free shipping. Save 15% by entering code ChicLuxuries at checkout.

Want to know what else is cool? The folks at Pollar Pillow  are gifting one Chic Luxuries' reader a cool Polar Pillow of their own!*


*Note contest open to residents in the contiguous 48 states only, 18 years of age and older.

Jewelmint Gifting Event

The lovely ladies at Jewelmint let me choose my favorite product to see what I thought of it and the company. In case you haven't heard of Jewelmint, it's a chic jewelry company that was created by Celebrity Stylist, Cher Coulter, and Actress and Fashionista, Kate Bosworth. Cher and Kate shop around the world, hit all the runway shows and scour vintage markets to design unique and trendy pieces for their exclusive jewelry club members. 


Here's how it works ~ after completing a short style quiz, a showroom of personalized selections is ready for your perusal. Each month new selections arrive in your showroom. Every item is $29.99 including shipping and handling and there are a lot of additional savings opps throughout the month. You can opt to skip a month whenever you choose and your account will not be charged. 

I selected the Bird Cage Bangle. The bangle did not appear in my showroom, however, I spotted it online and I was still able to order it. Jewelmint's packaging is exquisite, the padded shipping pouch is black printed with Jewelmint's logo. The gift box was a luxurious foldover mint green and black box with magnetic closure tied with a black logo ribbon. Inside the bracelet was wrapped in a black velvet pouch with a silver stamped logo hangtag. Also included was a note from Kate and Cher describing the bangle and a styling suggestion.


The Bird Cage Bangle is a sturdy 1" wide 24K yellow gold-plated square bangle that has a nice weight to it, not too heavy, but not so fragile that it would dent. I love its uniqueness and openness of the design.


Jewelmint makes holiday shopping a snap. Forget the crowded malls, long lines, or time spent looking for a parking space. The jewelry is stylish and the presentation gives it that extra special touch of splash that will surely impress.

Okay, shoppers before you run over to Jewelmint to start your holiday shopping, we have a gift for one of you! Jewelmint is graciously gifting one Chic Luxuries' reader the item of their choice!

Brynn and Amie Artisan Foods Giveaway

I discovered a company right here in North Carolina that makes all-natural artisan granola and snacks. Brynn and Amie, two very creative friends, have turned their culinary talents into a gourmet business on the Outer Banks. I loved reading Brynn and Amie's story and contacted them. They graciously sent me their Karma Krunch, Evil Nuts and Karma Krumbles to try. Before I even tasted the products, I had to admire the packaging ~ the placement of a black and white polka dot ribbon under the labels was so clever and turned a plain white bag into chic gourmet packaging ~ definitely the work of an artist.


I first sampled Evil Nuts ~ a spicy, sinfully-good mixture of walnuts and pecans with a caramelized coating of brown sugar. A variety of spices add a uniqueness and a bit of heat to these nuts...very addicting. An 8-oz bag retails for $9.50


Next up Karma Krunch. This all-natural granola is full of healthy fruits, nuts and seeds and is made with pure maple syrup. I could taste the maple syrup and it added just the right amount of sweetness. Karma Krunch is great with milk as a breakfast cereal or  as a snack right out of the bag. A 1-lb. bag retails for $9.50.

Last, but not least, I sampled Karma Krumbles. These are toasted nuggets of Brynn and Amie's Karma Krunch granola. I added a layer of Karma Krumbles to vanilla yogurt and another layer of sliced strawberries and had me a little parfait par~tay. Yummy! A 8-oz. bag retails for $7.00.


You can find Brynn and Amie's gourmet goodies online at BrynnandAmie.com and keep up with their latest creations on Facebook.


Want to have your own taste-testing par~tay? Brynn and Amie have been kind enough to offer one Chic Luxuries' reader ALL of the products I sampled ~ Evil Nuts, Karma Krunch and Karma Krumbles ARV: $26.00.

Miche Bag Gifting Event

Have you heard of Miche Bags? They are GORGEOUS and the concept is ingenious. One look at them and you will be asking yourself "Why didn't I think of that?". It starts with a base handbag that can be interchanged with a selection of outer shells. The shell fits snugly around the base and is securely held in place with flaps and magnets. 

I had the pleasure of speaking with Nicol Lynch, Miche Bag Distributor and Owner of NJ Styles Unlimited. Nicol was kind enough to send me Miche's Demi Base and Ceceila Shell above. This bag is STUNNING and soooo roomy, I adore all the compartments inside. I also love that it can be wiped clean. Below is the base which is interchangeable with any of the demi shells. The demi base and Ceceila Shell retail for $39.95 each.
Miche Bag Demi Base
Additional bases, shells and handles are available to customize your look. ~
Miche Prima Shell ~ Raye $44.95

Miche Prima Shell Lexi ~ $39.95

No more having to take everything out of your bag because it doesn't match your outfit, simply remove the shell and replace with one that coordinates with what you're wearing. 


Miche Bag "Eden"

Miche Bags started their business by selling to retailers and distributors. They soon learned that the majority of their business was coming from Independent Representatives who were purchasing from local distributors and reselling to friends, family and co-workers. The company is now in the process of restructuring their business model and Miche Bags will soon be available exclusively through Independent Representatives. The company also has plans to expand its existing product line to include other types of accessories. Currently, the cost to start your own Miche Bag business is $199 which includes a starter kit. For a limited time Representatives can customize their starter kit selecting the bases and shells of their choice. I can personally attest to how well these bags sell. There is a shop that sells Miche Bags where I had my jewelry boutique and they sell like hot cakes. This is an AWESOME opportunity for anyone wanting to start their own business.
Miche Bag Classic Shell Kandace

If you are like me and the idea of starting your own business and getting in on a ground-floor opportunity with a company that has unlimited growth potential excites you, give Nicol a call today! She is a dynamic leader who spends a good part of her workday training the Representatives on her team and her commitment to their success is apparent. Nicol can be reached at 919-Get-A-Bag or by EMAIL. To see more Miche Bag styles, visit Nicol's blog at NJStylesUnlimited.com

More great news! ~ Nicol is generously gifting one Chic Luxuries' reader a Miche Bag Base and Shell of their choice! ARV: $90.

Soft Surroundings Review and Gifting Event

The generous folks at Soft Surroundings sent me their eye-catching Chateau Sweater to see what I thought of it. 


I love styles that are classic and timeless but also unique and not found everywhere. This is that type of design. This chic and luxurious sweater is ultra soft {think cashmere}, cozy, and perfect for cool Fall days. The focal point is the stunning frog closure. The Chateau Sweater is available in two colors ~ Vanilla Bean or Cocoa. I chose Vanilla Bean which has specks of chocolate. The shawl collar can be rolled up to keep you warm and cozy on cold and windy days. The sizing is generous, no need to order a larger size than you normally wear. I selected medium and it is very comfortable. The Chateau Sweater is item #23467 and retails for $98.95.


In addition to beautiful clothing and accessories, Soft Surroundings offers a lovely selection of home decor including furniture. I spotted this GORGEOUS handcarved French Provence Armoire in their catalog and had to have it. That was seven years ago, and to this day, it has remained my all-time favorite piece of furniture. I found Soft Surroundings' Customer Service to be extraordinary. After all this time, I can still recall receiving a hand-written thank you note for this purchase. It's sometimes the smallest gesture that will leave a lasting impression in a customer's mind.


Want to know just how generous Soft Surroundings is? I'm happy to share with you that they are gifting one Chic Luxuries' reader the Chateau Sweater!!!! The lucky winner will have a choice of color and size. Soooo exciting!!!

Erica Sara Designs Gifting Event

It's no secret I have a thing for jewelry. I have a particular admiration for artisan jewelry and recently discovered a company I think you will love. Erica Sara Designs handcrafts beautiful timeless treasures that are dainty, feminine and each a work of art. Erica, who has been designing jewelry since she was 10 years of age, sent me her gorgeous Ava Earrings to see what I thought of them. 


The earrings arrived in a cream-colored box with white ribbon ready for gift-giving. The petite silver hammered coin earrings with gold-filled sequins are best described as Simply Chic. Perfect for the office, they also add a touch of elegance to casual wear! The pierced earrings are lightweight and have a bit of sparkle when the light reflects off them. Handcrafted in the USA, the Ava Earrings retail for $34.




Another item we love is the LOVE charm bracelet ~ 


Gold Monogrammed Necklaces seem to be the IT gift this year and we found one of the prettiest that we've seen on Erica Sara Designs 


This 3/4" gold-filled custom-engraved disk dangles from an 18" fancy cable satellite chain. If you wish, Erica Sara Designs will also include a personalized message on the back of the disc at no additional charge. What a lovely what to commemorate a special occasion. I can't think of any woman who wouldn't love to own this classic chic Necklace. The custom-engraved Monogram Necklace retails for $98. 

SURPRISE! Erica Sara Designs has generously offered to gift one Chic Luxuries' reader the beautiful Monogram Necklace with their choice of custom engraving {monogram, symbol, word, or name}! WOW!!

Sucklebusters' Review and Giveaway

The folks at Sucklebusters sent us a few of their award-winning products to try. When you hear "Sucklebusters Mexican-style salsa," think fresh, home-grown tomatoes and delicious sweetness. My son and I sampled the mild salsa. We were really struck by the fresh, sweet taste. The vine-ripened escalon tomatoes Sucklebusters uses were a first for us. If you buy the popular salsa brands available in the supermarket, you have certainly never tasted a salsa as delicious as Sucklebusters. Also available in Medium and Hot, a 16-oz. jar retails for $6.99.


We love that Sucklebusters uses only wholesale, all-natural ingredients in its products ~ no msg, no preservatives, no high-fructose corn syrup.
