Local Favorite’s -GIVEAWAY!-

Happy Wednesday! I know Small Business Saturday is not for a few more todays, but I’m starting early! Today I have something very special that I am giving away! I have asked some of the people I know who make handcrafted items to partner with me in giving away my favorite things they make. All of these items make the perfect Holiday gifts, so take a look at each one and think about supporting small businesses! See entry details below!

To start, one of my best friend’s mom makes artisanal salt. Her company is called Sous Salt. She makes gourmet, hand crafted salt. Sue combines amazing flavors to create these delectable salts!  You won’t know what you did without them! In the giveaway basket, you can win the Heirloom Tomato salt and the Olive & Thyme salt! She also included sample packets of some of her other amazing salts for you to try! Find you favorite flavor by clicking here!

Next, my girlfriend Wiyanna of Celtic Rose Candle Company makes homemade 100% Soy wax candles. They are absolutely divine! Named after her horse, Celtic Rose, this candle company is special and unique because Wiyanna makes everything in small batches at home. She has the ability to pick the fragrance, and essential oils that go into making these amazingly sustainable and beautiful candles. Wiyanna has included three fabulous candles in my giveaway, including Trail Ride, Caraiage House, and Sleepy Hollow. Read more about the candle making process here!

Next, my girlfriend Dana has an amazing CBD oil company called Healthy Lotus. Healthy Lotus makes a range of CBD oil products from oral sprays, capsules, applicators and topical balms. The CBD found in these products are all derived from the stalks and flowers of hemp plants grown in Holland, and processed in Germany before the CO2 process that converts the plants into oil. No, there is no “high” from using her products. CBD is actually considered a dietary supplement that can help a range of ailments including pain, inflammation, anxiety, to even extreme seizure conditions. Dana and her business partner have included an Extra Strength Balm and an organic lip balm in this giveaway! This makes an amazing gift for someone with artheritis, anxiety, etc. Her product is even safe for your pets! She Shop all their products here!

Last month when my mom and I went to Arizona on a trip through Visit Phoenix, we visited an Olive Mill called Queen Creek Olive Mill. You can ready about our trip, here! Visiting this olive mill was the highlight of our trip. We loved meeting the family behind the mill, tasting and trying the product, and have since loved using the product we brought home with us! Queen Creek Olive Mill has included their Balanced Extra Virgin Olive Oil and their homemade Olive Oil Soap from their Olivespa that is their seasonal Peppermint + Lavender scent. You guys, I almost kept this for myself…it smells SO GOOD! See their history and product line here!

Last but not least, I am giving away one of my handmade clutches in my favorite Hair-On leopard print. Last year I started designing clutches, and had them made in LA with my logo, under my blog name, Style Me Lauren. These clutches are really special to me as they were my capsule collection. They all have a signature turquoise pull tab on the zipper, an inside pocked with a zipper, and make the perfect going out clutch!
