these are a few of my favorite things

This post is dedicated to Rachel and Ivory, who always say that I am their Oprah, their link to the finer things in life. If only my giveaways where as outrageous as hers!

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things.

Captain von Trapp: Fraulein Maria, did I or did I not say
that bedtime is to be strictly observed in this household?

Maria: Yes, well the children were scared of the thunderstorm and… You did, sir.

Captain von Trapp: And do you or do you not have trouble following these simple instructions?

Maria: Only during thunderstorms.

Today I have three big announcements!

First, starting November 30th, I am releasing my Secondsister mini Winter collection. It isn't a full collection, just a few pieces with lots of sparkle to wear to holiday parties and such. And. . . everything is very affordable! It is very small and limited so if you need some accessories to get your glam on, be watching!

Second, Starting December 5th I will be hosting 10 days of 10 giveaways. I contacted some of my very favorite sellers on Etsy and I will be showcasing their work with a fabulous giveaway every day. You won't believe the prizes!

Third, you have a chance to win this pair of Winter Glam earrings from the new mini collection by helping me promote my Favorite Things giveaway. Just choose between these two graphics and load one into your sidebar. Make sure it links back to Suaviloquy and leave a comment on this post giving me the link to your page where you have posted the graphic. I will pick a winner on December 15th.

I am working on adding a scroll box with the html code, which is no small task for a computer illiterate like myself. If you need this, check back in a few days, I might just succeed.

Do I get extra points for being first and especially because I LOVE all things sparkly? I actually figured out how to post the link all by myself this time....progress! By the way, it is "Aprah" own it, wear it, love it.

Aprah, is it? It made me smile.

The Sound of Music(k) is one of my all time faves. I love that it is on your blog. Keep going with your SecondSister branding. I'm proud and excited to see how far you've come. Be well and take care of those boys!
