Things We're Loving....

While proofing this article, I realized "I love, we ♥, we adore" was written more times than any other feature so the title was a given. We think you'll find something you love too! After visiting the featured websites, click back here and enter to win the prize of your choice from our gift closet.

We love creative toys that build on a child's imagination. The kids {and you!} will have hours of fun unleashing their creativity with SMARTMAX® Mega Ball Run. Infinite designs can be constructed with the 71-piece magnetic set. Bright colored tubes, x-shaped bars, a slide, and metallic balls easily fit together for the ball to run through when the masterpiece is finished. MSRP: $119.95. A store locator is available at

Get ready for a snowy winter with Spring Step's® Sweden Boot. The waterproof nylon boots with go-anywhere style, are toasty warm and oh-so-comfortable. Features include easy-on-lace-up design, a thick rubber sole for traction and padded insole and tongue. $62.95 at

One of my favorite holiday traditions is reading a special Christmas storybook after all the presents have been opened and our company has left. The Magic Christmas Key Book and Key Gift Set by Leann Smith is the kind of storybook keepsake that your family will treasure for years to come. We adore this beautifully illustrated and heartwarming story of how a young boy and his adorable furry companion, Rufus, unlock the magic of Christmas as they discover its true meaning and even meet Santa himself! The book and keepsake key gift set retails for $29.99; Rufus is $25, both on Amazon. Visit to read excerpts from the book. We'll be adding a new tradition this Christmas Eve and hanging the Magic Key on our front door...We believe! 

Add a little sunshine to the guest, teen's, or master bedroom with 9 by Novogratz Bar Code Sheet Set in pretty, Cornsilk. Made of 100% soft cotton, the set is available in Twin-King. Mix and match colors with other items in the collection for a fun, cheery look. The Queen Set includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet and two standard pillow cases and retails for $61.82 exclusively at Walmart. 

If you're a regular reader, you've probably gathered we ♥ L'Occitane. One of their newest products, Shea Butter Whipped Shower Foam is fast becoming one of our faves. It foams up like a soft billowy cloud of whipped cream to gently cleanse the skin. Made with shea butter, it has a delicate and lightly sweetened scent. A 5.1-oz. bottle retails for $20 at

I love the look of pretty potpourri and of course, how it can fill a space with a delightful fragrance. The Autumn Harvest Potpourri by Hillhouse Naturals reminds me of warm cider and apple picking on a crisp Fall day. Notes of ginger and nutmeg add a cozy warmth to the beautiful and fragrant botanical potpourri. Made in the USA, a 15-oz. bag retails for $22.55 at

I've learned the hard way to "cut and paste" rather than click on links in emails, but my feeling is you can't be too careful. Kaspersky's PURE 3.0 Total Security provides real-time computer protection and piece of mind. It also offers free backup and restore, password manager, and pc clean-up tools. Scans can be done manually or set to run automatically as often as you want. The download covers up to 3 computers and is available for 1, 2 or 3 year licenses starting at $64.95 per year which is a $25 savings off the list price and well worth the investment. A 30-day free trial is also available at

We love everything about the eyn for iPhone 5/5s. First the chartreuse color is gorgeous, but it's what the case holds other than the obvious phone that is really unique. It includes a mirror, space for cash and up to three credit cards, and a kickstand. $29.99 at 

Wondering what this is? It's the Powerslayer Kit from Velvetwire. Powerslayer is a USB charger that powers on, off, and back on only when needed eliminating wasted power. The smart charger rapidly charges any USB device including phones, readers, and tablets. The kit also includes choice of USB braided cloth cable for Apple or Android devices, and a travel case. The Powerslayer is available in 4 colors for $39, the kit retails for $79 at

For lunch on the go, Laptop Lunches® Women's Dual Bento Kit will keep your salad, fruit and sandwich cold, fresh and in separate compartments. A roomy insulated bag features a plum Laptop Lunches® dual bento bistro with 3 inner containers and a stainless steel fork and spoon set. $39.99 at

Halle Berry's newest fragrance, Wild Essence, was created to capture the sensual spirit of a woman. A mix of fresh citrus and floral brings nature indoors and celebrates the natural beauty of a woman. MSRP for 1-oz. bottle is $28. A store locator is available at  

A nifty little tool to use as a key ring in case of emergency, Resqme® can rip through a seat belt and shatter a car window. Hopefully, you'll never have to use it, but at around $9.99, it's worth the piece of mind especially as we head into the winter months. A store locator is available at
