2 Happy Grlz Design: Review & Giveaway

Ever since I worked in retail, I just can’t seem to ever have enough bags (regardless if they are leather handbags or a simple tote). There are so many great uses for a good tote – from farmer market, beach bag, gym bag, pretty much any use. When the ladies over at 2 Happy Grlz Design approached me with their one of a kind totes, I couldn’t wait!!

2 Happy Grlz Design opened in September 2013, a couple of friends who decided to start a new adventure together, to use their creative sides and have some fun, maybe make a little money along the way. They offer totes perfect for bridesmaids, flower girls, a girls weekend or just because – as we as pillow cover in a variety of themes for any occasion.



12″ x 12″ x 7.5″ NAUTICAL Burlap Tote – Anchor


Personalized Burlap Totes, Lace Doily


I received the two above totes as you can see pictured above. The anchor tote was used as a part of a Mother’s Day Gift. I figured instead of purchasing a gift bag that would just be thrown away, why not something that can be used again and again while be stylish. They below picture is my favorite (especially because its personalized for me!) I love the color teal!! That paired with the doily design makes this a perfect gift as well. I have brought mine out and about to the farmers market and just to have to hold my summer extras while I’m out.  Overall, I am completely satisfied with 2 Happy Grlz Design and they’re products.

The ladies over at 2 Happy Grlz Design have offered to do AWESOME giveaway for 3 lucky readers to get a one-of-a-kind personalized tote of their very own!!

Salt Marketplace – Mini Artisan Cheese and Bread Boards Review & Giveaway




With Mother’s Day less than 2 weeks away, the ideas of what to get Mom can be daunting and overwhelming. I myself like more personalized gifts, and something that lasts longer than a few days (like flowers or chocolates). I think it makes the gift that much more special because you took the time to find something unique for them. When I was approached by Salt Marketplace to review their Mother’s Day Gift Set – Mini Artisan Cheese and Bread Board, I couldn’t have been happier.

Salt Marketplace offers vintage artisan cheese and bread boards. Perfect for family, wedding, corporate dinner events as well as party favors and marketing merchandise. Their products are handmade from all natural materials. The owner, Cadie,  grew up in a family of seven children, and her mother would make homemade bread and jam weekly to keep her large family fed (8-10 loaves a week). One of her most fondest memories is walking in the font door and smelling her Mom’s baking bread. 
Cadie wanted to continue the tradition of building homes with products that add that same sense of warmth and security that her and her family felt growing up. The artisan bread and cheese boards are made of 100% natural pine and poplar woods. They are both decorative and functional and designed by Salt Marketplace! Each design reflects a vintage style that adds character to your table spread. Their customers love the option of engraving each of their boards with a personalized image/name/initial etc. It adds that extra hom-e” feel to your board and table setting. They hope their bread boards will add to your fondest memories as you sit around the table enjoying dinner with those close to you. Salt Marketplace even includes her Mom’s secret recipes of homemade bread with each board.

Now in the Mother’s Day Gift Set – Mini Artisan Cheese and Bread Board that I reviewed, I not only received the houndstooth engraved board but also a Birch cheese knife, 1.5 oz gift wrapped jar of natural honey, and Salt Marketplace fry bread and honey butter recipe. I havent had a chance to make the fry bread and honey butter recipe, but have tasted the honey (I am a HUGE fan of honey), and have used the board – and can not wait to use this at my next gathering. I was throughly impressed by the package but inside and out, and the product themselves – well worth the $30!! 


My friends over at Salt Marketplace have been extremely generous and wanted to share a Mother’s Day special with my readers. Those that order the Mother’s Day Gift Set – Mini Artisan Cheese and Bread Board that I have reviewed, use coupon code MOTHERSDAY2014 at checkout and you will receive the gift set for $19.99 + shipping.


They are also giving one lucky reader the chance to win one of the Mother’s Day Gift Sets (valued at $30). The winner will be chosen by May 5th 2014– so don’t miss out on your chance and enter below!!
