After visiting the websites featured below, we invite you to return here to enter to win a goodie box filled with chic luxuries and valued at $500 via our express entry.

    Hayden Harnett's newest Biblio bag for Fall is the epitome of chic luxury and my latest crush. We're inseparable actually! ☺ It's an oversized bag measuring 19" in width, great for toting all your girly essentials and even a nook or iPad and a pair of ballet flats. Features include a gorgeous braided shoulder strap, gold logo hangtag, roomy inner and outer pockets. Made in the USA from locally sourced materials. I wish I could tell ya'll I was giving one away, but I don't think I can part with it. It's not too early to add it to your Christmas Wish List though! $798

    The Soho Square Cutting Board from the Beatriz Ball Collection is an exquisite work of art. We're in love with the entire collection. Each piece is beautifully designed and meticulously handcrafted using the ancient art of sand casting. More than 12 different sets of hands are involved in the creation of each piece. Made of FDA safe, easy care aluminum alloy, the Soho Cutting Board measures 13.5" x 12.5" and includes a smooth wooden cutting board for cheese and fruit and a convenient trench to hold crackers. It makes a lovely housewarming, wedding or Christmas gift. $137 at

    Finally a cute boot that fits over wide calves without cutting off circulation. Thank you Woman Within for the Monica Boot by Comfortview. These scrunch boots with 1" heel are soooo comfortable and look ultra chic. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Made of imported leather with a side buckle and inner zipper. Available in Black, Brown {pictured} or Cognac in full and half-sizes 7-12, and medium, wide or extra-wide widths. Currently on sale for $79.99-84.99 at

    We're head over heels for the I am Love Dreamy Lounging Pajamas from Peace Love World. Sweet dreams for sure! Love the Tango {red} color. A great big heart on the front with "I am Dreamy" written down the arm and leg. Pants have a drawstring waist. You'll look super cute in these on Christmas morning and holiday sleepovers...and every night in between! Top and bottom sold separately to ensure a perfect fit. Available in Tango, Lavender or White in sizes XS-XL. $78 each at 

    I love WellnessMats' new Entwine Design inspired by French antiquity. This is the Light Antique Color which, to me, gives it more of a Tuscan look. The 3'x2' mat looks gorgeous with granite countertops and is also available in a 6'x2' size. WellnessMats provide comfort and relief to feet, legs and back. It's easy to clean, won't curl and its beveled edges are wheelchair and walker friendly. WellnessMats come with a 7-year comprehensive warranty. The 3'x2' Entwine mat retails for $129.95 at

    I think Mrs. Prindable's is the standard that everyone in the handmade confection business tries to emulate and with good reason. The company produces mouth-wateringly delicious gourmet apples which are exquisitely presented. We tried the Milk Chocolate Toffee Walnut Jumbo Caramel Apple which I'm positive was just picked from the orchard. So juicy and fresh tasting with just the right combination of superior quality chocolate, walnuts and caramel. We also tried their Chicago-Style Milk Chocolate Toffee which somehow disappeared in seconds. Poof. Gone. I don't think perfection describes it adequately. The Jumbo Apple Gift retails for $22.95 and the Toffee $21.95. Available at

    It's easy to see why Swiss Diamond is ranked #1 Cookware by Consumer Reports, their new Braiser is a cook's dream. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, the non-stick coating is lined with real diamond particles making clean up a breeze, simply soak in warm sudsy scrubbing! Ergonomic handles stay cool on the cooktop and the tempered glass lid features an adjustable steam vent for advanced moisture control. We love that it goes from stovetop to oven. Available in two sizes 5.3 quart for $209.25 and 7.2 quart for $224.95 at

    The 22" Genius Packer Carry-On has it ALL! A removable laundry bag not only compresses, it has an exterior laundry chute to dispose laundry. Three interior zippered compartments and a removable zippered toiletries bag that attaches with velcro. An exterior zippered water bottle holder, umbrella holder with umbrella!, and four additional zippered exterior compartments. Need more room, no worries, just unzip the 2" extension. One of my fav features is a rubber protector fitted on the rear bottom to protect the carry-on when pulling up stairs or sidewalk. All four wheels rotate 360° to keep the carry-on from tipping over when running for the gate. Finally, a neat little strap is available to secure a jacket across the top. Regularly $298, it's on sale as of this writing for $198 at

    For the guys, we love the clean, smart, and handsome design of The Rogue Hoodie from Showers Pass. Its triple-layer waterproof softshell material is perfect for temperatures 55 and below. Features include audio port in right pocket, ultra soft fleece lining and wrist and adjustable drawcords at the hem and hood. With reflective trim and a hood that fits under or over most helmets, it's designed for bike riders, but he'll live in it off the bike as well. $160 at

    My love of artisan creations continues with this Cupcake Bath Bomb from Candy Cakes Bath Bakery. Meticulously handcrafted, gift boxed and tied with a ribbon, it makes the sweetest gift. Available in several scents, pictured here is Mango Calypso. Pssst it also makes the cutest decoration on the kitchen counter. ☺ Priced at $5.50 for a mini size and $10.50 for large.

    These Silver Turquoise Raindrop Earrings by Megha Jewelry will brighten any outfit and day. Semi-precious turquoise stones are handcrafted into raindrop shapes and set in silver with sterling french wire hooks. They measure 1.5" long by .75" wide. Wear these beauties year-round with black, brown, white or turquoise. $165 at

    Vitabath hit the mark when they named their Cupcake Couture Scrumptious Vanilla Sugar Body Mist. It certainly is a scrumptious scent. I'm sort of addicted to it and use it as a room and closet freshener too. I've even spritzed it on linens and in the waste basket! Sweet Cupcakes, I love this scent and think you will too. $9.99 for an 8-oz. bottle at

    The Ballet School Wall Clock by Newgate Clocks is a chic addition to a coastal, country or shabby chic decor. The clock is much larger than it appears on the website, measuring 21.5"L x 16.5"W. The composite wooden clock has a distressed finish and is painted in a soft country bluish-gray color, accented with cream-colored hands and numbers painted in Calligraphy. Requires one AA-battery. Newgate Clocks can be found stateside at online retailers including Restoration Hardware, Home Decorators, Ballard Designs or in the U.K. at
