I love love love decorating my walls. There are so many options to make your walls look beautiful other than just paint. Today's giveaway comes from Walls Need Love. They sell beautiful vinyl decals. I have been wanting some gold circles to use in my daughter's room for a while. She has a lot of gold accents so, the little circles were a perfect addition.
I also used some of the vinyl circles to spruce up a picture frame. Really you can use them anywhere! They were so easy to apply, just like a normal sticker. But they stay on really well, so I won't have to worry about her peeling them off!
They are such a fun accent for any room. There are so many stickers to choose from and I love that you can create a pattern how ever you want. And it is so much cheaper than buying some paint or other wall art!
One of you will win three mini packs of your choice from Walls Need Love! Enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below!

Don't worry I am not giving away new hair or new teeth... but I did recently get my hair chopped. When I was in college and worked as a TV anchor and reporter I decided to cut my hair really short to get the news anchor bob as they say. I kept my hair short while working at NBC after college and once I stopped working I stopped cutting my hair. Then about 3-4 years ago I donated it to Locks of Love. My husband was always donating blood and that made me queasy just thinking about it so I decided even though I can't donate my blood, I could donate my hair. So I let it grow out again for the past 3-4 years and donated it again. This time I donated it to Children With Hair Loss in Michigan because they were okay with my highlighted hair. So I sent off my 10 inches of hair and now have a little news anchor bob again-just now I am not working as a news anchor ;)

Now to the giveaway! Smile Brilliant contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I would like to host a giveaway for them and review their teeth whitening system. I said of course because who wouldn't want whiter teeth right?! Let me tell you how it works. They send you a kit and you make molds of your upper and lower teeth. Then send it back (with a prepaid envelope-just stick it in the mailbox). And in about a week or so they will send you fitted whitening trays. These trays are fitted so well and are so much less noticeable than other whitening trays I have had. Just use the whitening gel provided for 5-7 days for 1 to 3 hours per day. Then use them as needed after that. I also got some desensitizing gel to use after each whitening session because I have really sensitive teeth. It worked great I saw no added sensitivity and it even helped to lessen the sensitivity I normally have. I didn't use all the gel they gave me but you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 years!
My teeth were pretty white before because I have used other whitening gels years ago, but this picture is after a week of using the Smile Brilliant kit.  Smile Brilliant is giving one of you your own teeth whitening kit and 3 whitening gels and 3 desensitizing gels or 6 whitening gels a $140 value!

Well you probably know I love this Thanksgiving week, I mean, it's my birthday, we get to eat a lot of yummy food, I get to do a lot of shopping and we get to cut down our Christmas tree and get all of our Christmas decor up. It's such a fun and busy week for us! So to help in the celebrations, I am doing a week of giveaways. Check back all this week for a new giveaway. They all end Monday, December 1st at midnight.

The first giveaway of the week is a $25 gift card to Gordmans. You know I love shopping at Gordmans mostly for the home decor. I can always find such great deals on things. But they also have clothes, toys and just about anything you would need to make your home beautiful. This time the kind people at Gordmans gave me a gift card and I chose to use it for some Christmas decor.
I found this little Merry & Bright print in an antiqued frame. Also, I love all of their bottles and jars, I bought this glass bottle and decided to add a few pines and a few more of my own glass bottles.
I saw this frame with chicken wire and thought it would be a perfect place to hang holiday cards. I am always trying to find a decorative place to hang Christmas cards instead of just taping them to the wall or throwing them in a crate. To fill it up before we start getting Christmas cards, I printed off some chalkboard art, made a little wreath and made some state cards of where my husband and I are from. I love seeing the little shout out to my home state.
For your chance to win $25 to Gordmans and get a start to your holiday shopping, just enter the rafflecopter below. You can also use this 20% coupon for any purchases:

You may remember a few weeks ago I posted about our new hardwood floors. I love the floors and even bought some new area rugs to protect the high traffic areas. Well, the Rug Pad Corner contacted me and offered to send some rug pads to pair with my new rugs. I was so excited because I actually had bought cheap rug pads but the rugs slipped all over the floor.
Literally, every day my kids would run on the living room area rug and it would slide. This is what my living room looked like after the kids played in the room. I had to straighten the rug at least once a day-those of you with kids know what I'm talking about. It was pretty annoying. I checked out Rug Pad Corner and picked a non slip felt and rubber rug pad especially for hardwood floors.
All the products are 100% natural which is a bonus! I also got a rubber non slip rug pad especially for ceramic tile that I have in my kitchen. And a felt thick rug pad for under my dining room table-I don't have to worry about that rug slipping ;)
It is awesome not having to straighten my rug. I have had the rug pad under the area rug for over a week and haven't have to straighten it once. And for someone like me who is self described as borderline OCD and actually cares that the rug is straight all the time-this is huge!

All of you can use the coupon code REVIEW15 for a 15% discount off your entire order at Rug Pad Corner!
