Good luck! And thanks for being awesome! <3 href="http://thegiveawaydiva.blogspot.com/2009/02/giveaway-time.html"> here to enter!
Sometimes it is really hard to make a really great homecooked meal when you have a million other things that seem so much more important like watching the newest episode of Gossip Girl or frantically studying for a test! That is why the giveaway held over at MomDot is perfect for people on the go, they are giving away the Slow Cooker Mate!!
This was designed and made by a busy mom on the go who wanted to spend more time with her new baby daughter, so she came up with this concept. Her hope is that this product will do the same for other mothers out there.

- The unique stoneware divided insert (found ONLY in the Slow Cooker Mate™) allows you to cook 2 side dishes while the lower stoneware chamber holds an entrée for up to 5 or 6 people.
- Slow Cooker Mate™ eliminates the need to spend more time cooking side dishes to compliment your entrée.
- Use Slow Cooker Mate™ to cook meals in the summer when schedules are filled with activities and you don’t want to heat the kitchen with a stove top or oven.
- • Stainless steel exterior
- • Keep warm, low and high settings

Kathleen has the most amazing talent! You know the Coat giveaway that I blogged about earlier? Well she is the same designer! And this time she is giving away an amazing lace covered sweater!
She fell in love with a sweater from Anthropologie but it was a staggering $118, and she realized that she could simply make her own! In my opinion her version kicked Anthropologie's butt! So if you are just in love with this sweater as I am, head on down to her blog to enter to win!

I just realized that many of you who entered my giveaways and indicated that they had become a follower, entered by indicating they became a follower with the number of entries that they received which would be four for a new entry and six for being an old follower (#1-#4 follower) at the time I was quite confused and I didn't realize that it was your intention (thanks to Micaela for pointing it out)! So sorry for the confusion but rest assured that when I saw that you had become a follower I gave you all the appropriate entries!
Sorry once again!

Galit is a 22 year old jewellery designer from Israel. She started making her one of a kind pieces two years ago at the tender age of 20 while she was spending time tour guiding soldiers in Jerusalem as a soldier herself. She carefully hand crafts each piece with a crochet needle creating unique creations combining beautiful materials. All her jewellery is made with sterling silver 925 or 14 karat gold filled, semi-precious stones and pearls, so you know they will be guaranteed to stand the test of time and last! You can really tell that she put a lot of love and attention in every piece she makes.
I was quite shocked at the prices because I expected that it would be really expensive since she uses such high quality materials such as gold, silver, pearls and turquoise but they are actually super affordable! The most expensive item in her shop is the Cocktail Necklace but that is a steal considering she hand crochet 14 karat gold filled wire, it actually is only $105!! This also happens to be Galit's favourite piece! Literally everything in her shop is less that $50 but I guarantee you that everyone will think you paid so much more! I can't even begin to pick my favourite piece from her collection because I love every single piece!! But if I was forced to choose I would have to say her rings would make delicious cocktail rings! And her amazing abalone necklace would be perfect for a special occasion or even if you're just lazing around the house in a t-shirt and jeans.
I am so excited to be giving away an amazing piece from Galit's Etsy store!! Up for grabs is her amazing Valentine's Day Special Necklace in Sterling Silver with your choice of gemstone or pearl! This beautiful necklace has a value of $30!!
Sterling silver wire is crocheted to form a delicate heart shape, then it is combined with hand wrapped semi precious stones or freshwater pearls. This is a beautiful pendant that then hangs from a delicate silver chain.

This represents prosperity, good fortune and happiness. Both Vivienne Tam and HP hope to bring you all of the above with a special sweepstakes in the spirit of Fashion Week.

We had the yummy Lover's Sharing Menu which started off with a dozen raw oysters with six different sauces to accommodate them. I also loved the bread basket that they brought which had these amazing bread sticks. The main course was a surf and turf with two amazing steaks on a bed of lightly seasoned baby potatoes with a lobster tail over mac and cheese. The mac and cheese was sooo good, I was inspired to learn how to make my own instead of the one from the box. Dessert was a Chocolate Ecstasy Cake with a raspberry compote on the side with a white chocolate heart. And they offered us these amazing almonds and heart shaped jam filled shortbread as a souvenir. If you are ever in Vancouver, I would highly recommend Yew!
